Self-realization — the key to our soul?

The other day, I was sitting and working on a couple of my essays and came to this point of thinking of whether everything we write, read, or memorize is literally synced with the outer world, and if yes, then simply how?

Is this the way things are supposed to work?

Well, it wasn’t until I finished reading Daniel H. Pink’s “To Sell is Human” and realized how we all are of one kind and have the same potential of competence, yet it is directed to our own selves on how we interpret the information we have and will to utilize.


Too much cliche… let’s get to work.

According to scientific research, one of the most active periods of one’s brain is the time he/she sleeps during the night.

Immediately, a question arises: “What? How come at night? Why not during a heavy physical workout?

Is there any possibility that we are hypnotized simultaneously while sleeping, leading to increased overload?

All of these thoughts might also be tangent to another factor named as:


Attainment

What is attainment? Technically, “attainment” means ACHIEVEMENT.

So, once started talking about attainment, we have to talk about the stages where the word change is what needs to be embedded in one’s life.

Here we go!


1. Your Motivation Is Gone

Humans all have something that makes them tick. A goal that makes them wake up at 5am even though they would love to sleep in late. A drive that makes them decline social events, because their jobs need them to stay all night, or maybe it’s the opposite and you attend social events to please the ones close to you.

It comes from your motivation to succeed either professionally or personally, but once the drive is missing, then you can’t keep going and you will lose your motivation.

If you suddenly can’t find that drive inside you once had, then it can be a sign. It can be your needs or wants that have changed. The important thing is that if you don’t feel the same motivation any longer, then it’s time to do something about it.

We’ve been taught to keep going even when it gets tough, but it’s okay to change and redefine yourself. It’s not about giving up. It’s about stopping up and revaluate whether you still want the same things in life.

Sometimes you may find out you still want the same time, but the way you’re going about it isn’t working for you.

Chris Sacca, an American venture investor, and entrepreneur, bought a cabin in Tahoe’s less-expensive neighbour and moved to the prime skiing and hiking country when he felt his motivation sliding away. He still had the same goals, but described a need for a change in his life to get back the right mind-set:

2. The People Around You Are Changing

The grass is far from always greener on the other side of the street (at least most of the time), and while we shouldn’t compare ourselves to the people around us on a daily basis, it’s okay to take a look once a while.

The people you surround yourself with often reflect back on yourself. If you’re going through a phase where most of your friends have been going out all the time, and then they suddenly start to focus on work and family, it might be a sign.

This by no means imply you should change your life if you’re still feeling fulfilled and good about it. But if you turn your head and start noticing a change around you and it makes you rethink things, it’s probably a sign of you being ready to change as well.


3. You’re Bored

A healthy life shouldn’t be all fun and games, but if you’re starting to feel bored on a daily basis, then it could be a sign. There’s a difference between waking up on a Sunday and not knowing what to do, and waking up every day and feel bored.

Maybe you don’t feel challenged in your job any longer, or your normal idea of fun is no longer giving you the enjoyment it once did before.

Take the time to check with yourself. Are you just bored? Or do you need something more in your life?

Humans are run by habits and routines, which makes it tough to change them. It also makes us stay in bad situations much longer than needed.

It’s always hard in the beginning but you can do it! Take a leap of faith and change your life.
