Everyday, tens of thousands of thoughts fly through our minds. Things that we see, hear, feel, taste and smell are translated into different experiences. Some of these may be thought of as bad, while others are good. But have you ever wondered, what if things are not as they seem?
Many times we tend to translate differently, things that are happening around us. Some people may tell you, “You must have woken up from the wrong side of the bed today!” But if you stop or slow down to reflect on the events, you may find that, if you go with the flow, things are not as bad as they seem!
Today, in this period of global recession, you may think losing a job is bad. But taking a step back, this might be a time of consolidation, a time for you to slow down and think of what you really want. Most of us are so caught up with the rat race, that we stop to care for others, be with our families, spend time with friends. What will all these translate into in the end? Life is definitely not like a piece of english document translated into a chinese one within days. Whatever you do now, will translate into something else down your life path perhaps in a matter of years!
So, start thinking about how you ultimately want your life to be, and how you want to start “translating” it into now…
