Our Minds Work Like Suggestion Engines

Our thoughts work as suggestions, options, not as orders.

We have the power to choose which option we follow.

Our lives are good in most parts and our discomfort is temporary. Relative to the time in our normal day, almost any habit we adopt is over quickly.

Your workout will be finished in an hour or two. Your report will be typed to completion by tomorrow morning.

We'll never regret doing good work, once it is done, despite our initial resistance to it.

Sometimes, the simple act of showing up and having the courage to do the work, even in an average manner, is a victory worth celebrating.

Deepstash helps you become inspired, wiser and productive, through bite-sized ideas from the best articles, books and videos out there.

The essence of motivation

Every choice has a price, but when we are motivated, it is easier to bear the inconvenience of action than the pain of remaining the same.

In other words, at some point,  it becomes more painful to not do the work than to actually do it.

IDEAS

It’s an incredible habit to take even a few moments at the beginning of your day (or the end of the day before) to give some thought to where you’d like to concentrate your attention. 

Ask yourself: What is worth doing today? What is worth focusing on? What is worth spending the limited time you have in this life?

Being happy is a matter of choice, they say. And so it is most often. In order to make sure you make the most of your time, you should always bear in mind that life can be as beautiful as it can be hard.

Being aware of the reality you live in enables you to better achieve your goals as well as to better face any difficulties that might turn up at some point during your life.
