What is an escape ?
An escape is a way out of something which we don’t like or like.
Now it can be anything. you can also escape from something which you don’t want to loose or you can escape from something which is very close to your heart. We are scared of number of things and we have number of fears. We have insecurities but we don’t tell this to anyone only because we don’t want to tell anyone that we are weak. Being insecure is not a weakness but it’s natural for us to be insecure. That’s what make us humans. And a human will have an urge to escape from something.
Life is a box of chocolates as said in a famous Hollywood blockbuster “Forrest Gump”. But it’s not like this in actual life. We all hope that life will become a box of chocolate or at least close to it but things don’t fall in place as we expect them to be. Hence future is unpredictable and so we have insecurities. We all try to run from our insecurities as we don’t want to face them. We all want to be good and want to have good life but to make our life good we must go through hardships. If we don’t then life will have no motive and we don’t want to live without any objective.
So there is no escape from hardships and difficulties. We must toil and sweat hard to make our life purposeful. We must have a mind without any doubts when we begin our day. We must know what to do on a given day to get the job done. There are no excuses and there is no escape.
Some wise guy said “ two of the most important days in your life are the day you were born and the day when you know why.
Nobody tells us our purpose when we grow but as we come in contact with our society we realize that people around us are only to let us know our purpose. People teach us all the time and tell us what to do and what not to do. Life becomes a kind of show where we act but director is someone else and somebody writes a script.
You are time
I often see people complaining or cribbing about time. Time which they don’t have.time which is defined in 24/7 for everyone but even then people have number of things to say about how less time they have for the activities they want to do. They crib about they are busy all day and have very less time for themselves. It’s also understandable and obvious to say that we all live very busy life. In times of technology where every month we have one smartphone launch in the market , where we see one brand new car on the roads and it populates the city but we don’t complain , in times of social activities which takes place on social media such as what’s app, viber, Facebook and MySpace, it’s an irony that we have so many tools available to make our lives simple but even then we find no time for ourselves.
We don’t need rocket science to understand what time is and how important it is for us. We don’t need to be an expert to understand how to make best use of our time. But unfortunately even then most of us fail miserably in this task and waste so much of our time which is so important to us.
If we use our time efficiently we can end up doing number of things in 24/7 schedule. We all want to do but we don’t do it , reason being that we don’t have willingness to do it.
Now let’s understand what is a willpower and why it’s so important. In fact it’s one of the most important aspect of our personality but we don’t pay attention to it. This is something which has us failed in number of ways but we are not ready to work on it. It’s our responsibility to focus on what we think is working against us. If we know what is going wrong and we know how to make it right , we can end up simplifying lot of things and can get tasks done.
In simple words will power is an urge from within to get the job the done. Either good or bad it’s applicable to both tasks.
You are time.
When I say you are time it simply means that time is in your control. In your control not in terms of time travel but in terms of time management. Efficient use of time can lead to efficient way of life.
