The mind wavers. There is a specific goal and the method to achieve it is clear, yet the mind wavers because of stray thoughts that intrude my emotional soul. The human brain is funny; many a times it complicates simple matters. I have been working towards a goal. All I need to do is focus on delivering my best, yet certain unpleasant experiences of the past pervade my mind, creating an analysis of the possible results. The permutations and combinations of the possible end results are being analyzed, eliminating ‘lower risk ‘factors and creating a three dimensional possibility of the various results.
The analysis is complex. The various possibilities make life seem like hell. It seems discouraging and the world biased. You still need to survive in this biased world and achieve your goal. I begin to plan my route map of accomplishing the same, accounting for the various “expected human traits” that I would need to encounter during the course of my endeavour. The mind is now suddenly filled with inhibitions. I begin to grow insecure, considering the ‘ifs’ and ‘buts’. I’m suddenly low on confidence, shattered to say the least.
The same goal, the same objective, but now a deluge of frivolous emotions begin to act as deterrents in my path. I’m now a very different person, creating a world of insecurity, which never existed.
The mind many a times plays the devil’s advocate, sowing seeds of doubt. The desire to be successful in our endevour supersedes the basic principle of ‘giving your best and forgetting the rest’.
In life, we cannot control many extrinsic factors. We cannot ascertain the final result. Unpredictability is the essence of life. It adds zing and energy to an otherwise mundane life. The uncontrollable forces will continue to govern the final outcome of any endeavour.
It’s natural and human to think of various possibilities. The wavering mind can sometimes spring new ideas in life. However, when we have a goal in sight, a task at hand and a mission to accomplish, the wavering mind, needs to be ignored like it never existed.
I begin to recoup, gathering my rationale. Every outcome has a reason. I decide to give it my best and believe in the universal principle that a conscious effort always gives dividends. The wavering mind sometimes conspires to creates a garbage bin, that’s worth being dumped in no mans land.
When the mind wavers, remain calm and let the storm die an eventual death. Think about the process, positive results will follow!
