Some believe that their inability to take action has to do with not knowing what to do.
Others feel like it’s because they don’t have enough time.
Still, some think it’s because they are afraid.
But after working with many successful students the real problem comes down to these two simple words:
You have been conditioned all of your life to fit into the machine.
To make this work the industrial corporate complex had to:
- Train you that the weekend was sacred.
- Award minuscule raises like doggy treats.
- Instill you with fear of losing your job by being fired!
This carefully orchestrated trance state also:
- Has you dreading each Monday morning.
- Yet seek any weekend distraction (overeating, overdrinking and overspending) to forget about Monday’s arrival.
- Causes your days, months, and years to pass by in an instant!
Life Passing You By Quickly
According to research published in the Journal of Experimental Psychology, time is perceived as going by much faster when people are engaged in a routine. (Like a boring 9 to 5 job).
Density of experience is low in a routine situation since it doesn’t require extra attention.
We become desensitised to our experience, which means that we process less information, and time seems to speed up. This happens when we are in a rut and just going through the motions at work.
(Another factor is the “proportional” aspect, which means that as we get older each period of time constitutes a smaller proportion of our life as a whole.)
Changing the Rut!
Here are two approaches that will help with the quick passage of time:
1) Familiarity makes time pass faster. We can slow down time by exposing ourselves to as many new experiences as possible.
2) The most effective way we can slow down time by making a conscious effort to be more “mindful” of our experiences. Mindfulness means giving our whole attention to an experience – to what we are seeing, feeling, tasting, smelling or hearing – rather than to our thoughts.
This is why a new project, especially one that pays off bills and gets your idea muscle working, is such a good option. Something that our students are experiencing through their S.O.N.
Boiling a frog
According to allegory, if you put a frog into a pot of boiling water it will instantly leap out. But if you put it in a pot filled with pleasantly tepid water and gradually heat it, the frog will remain in the water until it boils to death!
This gradually heated water is like a job that may be sucking the enthusisam out of you.
And because you’re in the Trance you look up one day, and life has flown by.
Once you gain the freedom to break out this trance you won’t believe how much more time (life) you will have.
(And, unfortunately, how much you have wasted).
Wealthy people live a very different life than the struggling nine to fivers.
