Passion Should be put Toward Downtime
If you have downtime, you have time. You have a lot of time on your hands. More time than you think. TV time should be passion time. Random internet surfing should be put toward passion. Sleeping in an hour or so on a Saturday morning can also be put to use for passion. Too much sleeping is too much downtime.
Can’t get to sleep?
Boom! Give me some more reasons to say you have passions to pursue.
As a full-time personal trainer who is pursuing a writing passion, I hear it all the time from others: I don’t have time for the gym!
Yeah, but you have goals.
I didn’t realize they’d be so hard!
Sweetie, if it were easy wouldn’t we all have a six pack of abs and toned limbs?
Then, you get into the whole life isn’t fair, why me, and my life is unique because I have this, this, and this going on.
I hear excuses, excuses, and more excuses.
You have time, you don’t want to use it because most want to add their passion into what they’re already doing. They don’t like the word opportunity cost.
In today’s softened society, we’re changing definitions left and right and even using softer words, so people don’t get offended.
Look, if you’re over eighteen and something offends you, you really need to suck it up.
Know what offends me?
People being cognitively conditioned into accepting a society of easily offended people they become easily offended themselves.
I’m not a religious man, but I could care less about the Ten Commandments being posted in schools, churches, and courthouses. In fact, I don’t even follow the Christian Bible or anything like it, but if someone cites something from it, I really don’t care.
What I’m getting to is, people expect you to understand and justify something they’re insecure about, which is supposed lack of time. We have one-hundred and sixty-eight hours in a week and we can’t find a few hours for ourselves?
We’re making excuses. I’ve even told people they’re lazy.
Also, a yes.
Break the Bad Habits
Okay, so back to my fitness background. People have horrific habits and some surprisingly admit to it and will even admit their motivation for change is low. But, we still need to work on breaking bad habits.
However, people try to go cold-turkey and change everything in one sitting.
It doesn’t work.
It’s overwhelming, and it leads to failure.
Instead, small changes, especially when passion’s being pursued.
You need to start with your downtime. Take notes when you’re surfing the web, listening to mindless music, playing video games, and watching TV. This is when you need to be pursuing. Do something productive in your downtime.
If you want more in life, if you’re stuck in a dead-end job, and just want out, you need to take it upon yourself to change things. People get stuck in a job and they’re completely miserable.
They take it out on others.
Once Lord of Columbia is in circulation, I’ll be talking more about Comeback Kid because while Lord of Columbia combats the globalist agenda (I’m talking to you, Rothschild) Comeback Kid tackles self-reliance, taking ownership, and pursuing passion.
