Why Now and only NOW is the time to change
The naked truth is that nowadays, we live in a world full of possibilities. Do you remember how your grandparents used to live?
Mine were farming is a small village (in beautiful Creta in Greece), and the only different place the have seen in their lives was Athens (the capital of Greece).
It was outside of their realities to move out of their village!
It was outside of their realities to travel, do something different or try to think critically about their possibilities as human beings.
I don’t blame them of course. They had very few knowledge of the actual world out there. It is like living on a small island, completely detached from the whole world.
Nowadays things are different. In the era of the informational mayhem that we live in, it’s impossible not to know what it’s going on outside your small cubicle or town.
We have the information and the knowledge of Thousands of years right in our disposal. We can click our way through everything!
BUT WE STILL MAKE THE SAME MISTAKES!
And the number one mistake is PROCRASTINATION, which can easily change to Procrasturbation 😀
We have all the info we need to live high quality and healthy lives! But we still don’t do it!
We sit and listen to all the marketing crap that is thrown on us, and we absorb it without even questioning it!
I used to be one of those people and of course I still am sometimes!
But day by day I try to become a better version of myself and I cultivate the habit of criticising and checking whatever is thrown at me!
Let’s take milk for example: Almost everybody thinks that drinking milk is very good for your health and your well-being in general.
And of course by drinking milk you have healthier bones, absorb calcium and tons of protein.
I will just state 3 things from this amazing article just to give you a small idea of how we are duped to think that milk is a healthy choice in our diet!
1. Milk depletes the calcium from your bones
2. Cow’s milk is custom-designed for calves
3. Scientific studies show that milk increases fracture risk
I leave this here as food for thought! This was just an example of the hundreds of things marketing companies throws at us, all the time!
Sorry my rant, but I like to write exactly as I think.
My point is that in this era we can easily get overwhelmed and forget our life goals and purposes!
I still remember that as a kid I used to dream and dream , about things that I wanted to do in the future!
Now I am 28 years old and I still dream the same things!
You guessed it!
Lack of action!
Someday I will, someday, someday…… and it’s left at that!
NOW IS THE TIME! Not someday!
Someday will be someday forever. No time is perfect to start or do anything!
Make a jump start and the you can calibrate and act accordingly!
Let’s do this together!
I dare you to take some action! Even if it is a small one! Don’t eat that cake. Walk instead of driving. Don’t switch on the TV!
Spend some quality time with yourself or the people around you!
We live like we are immortals!! That is far from truth! We are mortals and we have a limited time on this earth!
So let’s make the best out of it and live our lives exactly as we want it!
Don’t be a stranger 🙂
