“People always make time to do the things they really want to do.”

How creative do we become when we really want to do something? It is too bad we are not as motivated when we have to do something. Then again we are extremely motivated when we must.

So is it possible that only intense desire and extreme fear are the most effective motivators?

In the middle, aren’t we just bored?

What do you think?

Are you driving at one hundred miles an hour going nowhere?

Are you constantly busy doing unimportant things?

Are you repeating the same things over again and again? 

 

“Joy is not in things, it is in us!”

Benjamin Franklin

In our consumer society, we are bombarded everyday with advertisements that try to persuade us that we need a certain new toy to be happy.

And once we get the new house, new car, new boat, new clothes …will it really make us happy?

And for how long?

Benjamin Franklin wrote this quote more than 250 years ago before the advent of the consumer society.

I believe he was right. Joy has to be from inside us.

Where does your joy come from?

“Do not spoil what you have by desiring what you have not; but remember that what you now have was once among the things you only hope for.”

Epicurus
