In competitive sports there are moments that require complete abandon of all that does not contribute to the winning drive. And it is the same with a conversation or action that is being put off. And though there are many other instances one may have failed it does not matter because it is these moments where peak performances are most needed and are most effective.
It is a requirement to try hardest during any given moment, but there is a certain reserve of energy tapped due to a calm desperation. It only surfaces as much as one believes he needs it so it’s best used for true moments of need lest one’s mind will cry wolf and no longer believe in the validity of it’s own desperation.
Life then must be about working hard whilst preparing to peak at the right moments. And peak does not mean mere optimal levels of performances, but more full potential of any given state of mind be it weak or strong. And it’s frequency will depend on one’s ultimate need.
Energy then is quite precious if it is needed so often and so much. It is wisest to know where it is being leaked. Confused celebrities, comment sections, or toxic people can all contribute to a subtle leak leaving less room for one’s dreams if any.
But what am I thinking, one should know this anyway if there is to be any striving for a tough goal or dream. It is hard though, the commitment to brainwash self to ingrain habits that will inevitably become one’s source of pleasure is a battle. The start of it requires a massive jump start and an even keel of continuing perseverance to eventually etch the lightning of neural pathways into the mind.
And all this is pretty much moot once it is understood, the only thing that will matter is the feeling of moving forward
