One might say, that a memorable life that is lived fully and deeply is something that we all innately desire. Life consists of a multitude of conscious experiences. To live as a servant or serf you can find pleasure but you’re likely to stumble upon some discoveries along the way when you realize that a life of luxury or royalty has been open to only a select few. If you believe in serving for a greater cause, whether it be for all of humanity or a particular set of beliefs you will find that you can lead yourself to a greater life beyond belief, but it can only be done with strong willpower as well as strong self-belief. Ultimately we can’t all realistically live in complete luxury like kings and queens, but you might as well strive to lead such a life.
You are not a slave, so the sooner you realize that you’re essence is divine, and that you were mean’t to live fully and deeply, the more meaningful your life will become. The most important measurement to take, is the measurement of your time and how you value it.
Time is one resource that you cannot take back.
Use your time for rewarding experience’s that make your life full.
In life we all go through some painful experiences, but we also go through some fun, loving, and memorable experiences.
“Pain and suffering are required to make progress.” -Brandon Carter
Let me go over the three main types of experience that you likely face in your life.
- Experience’s That Enrich You.
Where to begin. These are the type’s of experience’s that we wish could last forever. It could be spending time in a tropical resort feeling relaxed and rejuvenated, or it could be spending your weekend at a self-improvement conference where you network and meet a bunch of young ambitious people who all enhance your strengths and provide you with some wonderful insight on how you can gain further insight and knowledge in your niche. These are the life experience’s that we seek the most. Whether you want to spend it on your own or with someone you love, or even with a group of people who you highly regard. If only you could allocate your time in a manner where you eliminate your time from all the crap that clutters your mind and dumb’s you down, right?
Nobody wants to spend their time in a wasteful matter, that’s why our technology these days focuses so much on automation and proficiency. The more that you can eliminate chore’s and time consuming activities that you find less necessary or pleasurable, the more time you have to optimize your life with fun experience’s. It seems like people just want to do more things that matter to them and provide them with more life fulfilling experience’s.
2. Experience’s That Are Neutral.
These are the experience’s that we don’t mind too much. Perhaps it’s spending three hours of your day in a class that you feel you seek some value. It could also me driving around and running errands, or maybe it’s doing some activity such as cooking dinner for yourself or a family. Yeah maybe you wish you were someplace else or earning big bucks, but think of it this way, you are gaining some sort of value from learning, and it will help you in the future, so long as you are willing to soak it all in, and retain what you need to know.
Another way of looking at neutral experience’s is that they make you feel like you might be wasting your time, but at the same time, you wonder if you’re at the point where you would be providing more value by being somewhere else at the same time.
These neutral experiences may be a common part of the “come-up” phase. Whether you’re hustling your way up a new job, training, or spending time in a meeting these experience’s give you insight and communication with colleague’s. Keep in mind that neutral experiences can provide you with something to gain but it is best to not spend too much time or the majority of your time in neutral. Obviously it’s optimal to spend time more time in a place where you enhance other people’s lives and your own lives but it might not always be possible 24/7.
3. Experience’s That Deplete You.
Depleting experience’s are the worst experience’s. It is here that you sometime’s feel like stabbing yourself with a fork, or smacking yourself in the face repeatedly. Whether it’s spent at a soul-stealing job, or doing something that causes you serious physical, mental, and emotion pain it’s probably not worth your time. In fact, it’s definitely NOT worth your time. These experience’s should be kicked out ASAP!
The problem is that not everyone can necessarily avoid all depleting experience’s. Sometimes we have to put food on the table and sometimes we have to keep our resources in proper management. After all, somebody has to track capital, assets, time, and knowledge. Every person has resources, and all resources must be managed.
“What get’s measured get’s managed.” -Peter Drucker
Whatever you do, don’t waste your time doing things that provide no value for your life or others. Life is too short and there is too much to gain from this world. If you want your true potential to show, eliminate whatever daily experiences that are holding you back. Keep your mind focused, and clarify what it is that you need to accomplish. It’s easier said than done, but try to map out a plan to get to the experiences that your soul really thirsts for. If you keep yourself inside a limiting set of beliefs you’ll get trapped there and you might spend more time in depleted experience’s than you originally intended, however once you overcome this mindset you will be amazed by how you can transform your life around.
Another thing that I want to cover is rejection. When you face a lot of rejection in life you might feel like you’re being depleted, but in fact it’s really just meant to teach you that you need more time to learn and grow in order to overcome your depleted experience’s. If you want to have a significant life that holds significant value, you NEED to overcome your fears that have kept you inside of experience’s that deplete you.
The Three Negative’s That Can Be A Part of The Sixth Sense:
As Napoleon Hill state’s in his book Think and Grow Rich, these simple emotions often keep us trapt inside of a continuous flow of depleting experiences. It is only the reversal of these negative emotions that will open your mind up to a life of confidence where you can defeat the odds that were set up against you.
To summarize, it is important to differentiate and understand how to separate your experience’s into these three categories. If you want to begin re-shaping your life, it is important that you realize where you spend your time and whether you could be optimizing your life and your experience’s through re-assessment. In order to reach a point of self-awareness and self-reliance you need to be able to differentiate between your experiences and allocate your time wisely.
