Remember to Remember you have every resource within you
How many of us bank on balms and ointments to get relief from headaches and joint sprains?
Many of us, most of the times, isn’t it? But why?
Our mind knows very well that an ointment would reduce pain and aches.
Have you ever realized that our body has a liniment within that can be generated & stored to be used when required?
Let me explain…, when a child is hungry he/she will not search for food. They simply search for their mother, and the mother provides food in no time. Similarly, we must run to our core – the nucleus of our happiness to rejuvenate ourselves when in pain.
On several occasions, I’ve felt lost and drained off energy. My quick resort was to sip hot chocolate if I was out in the mall or a mug full of ginger tea at home, followed by hours of thinking.
I’ve been following an advice I had received from my project manager during my early career days – to list out things before you actually start doing it. It worked for me quite well and I used to jot down a lot at work and at home. In recent discussions with a good friend cum coach, she brought into my conscious awareness that I jot down a lot and couple of other friends seconded her observation.
Yesterday, I found myself low yet again. So much so, I didn’t have energy to make coffee for myself.
Neither was I in a mood to listen to music or even to call a friend. I kept thinking what could I do differently. Then involuntarily started jotting down list of things to do… and gathered myself up to eat that frog.
Almost, 5 hours of unwavering concentration and after completing big chunks of work, which had been pending for quite some time, I went to bed late at night.
This morning, as I woke up I reflected on what had happened. Then realized this…
We all have every resource within us, the only thing we need is to keep it in our conscious remembrance to maintain our state of mind and thus our productivity.
Remember to Remember you have every resource within you!
