At all times we are surrounded by different things, be it our home environment, sounds, other people or other things. We believe we are able to process all information. In truth, our brain only registers about 5 % of the moment. The rest flows in on us unprocessed and can lead to negative stress or anxiety.
Every day we deal with the environment. Every day we encounter normal and new situations. Every day we have the chance to learn something new.
It depends on us how we deal with the usual and the unknown. We have many possibilities, one of it is curiosity.
Stress, crises, strokes of fate.
Sometimes in life, not everything is going as planned or hoped for. However, different people have a different grade, of a sensitive soul. Some are highly sensitive, others are more like unemotional.
What a nice word! It sounds like soft pillows, warmth and the smell of cinnamon – in short: heavenly!
So why the hell everyone wants to tell me that I should leave this place?
Let’s be honest: we simply have no influence on some things!
May it be the broken water pipe in the basement, the new boss or the weather. No matter how thoroughly we eat our plate, how fervently we perform a rain dance or how much we cringe … some things are beyond our control.
Nevertheless, we are not helpless of the “storms” of life. Our weapon? Optimism.
According to Wikipedia, an adventure is “a risky venture or an experience that is very different from everyday life”. That means an adventure will not only be an adventure if you are on an expedition for more than six months or on another continent.
Why it’s so often just a dream?
In newspapers, television and the growing media diversity, we repeatedly meet with reports of people who have a completely different way of life than the masses of the people around us. People who travel around the world set up aid organisations, or rebuild a farm so it is ecological.
We are deeply impressed … and still, go on exactly where we left off. In some cases, however, the reports of other life models affect our emotions. What we heard has met our desire…
… we start dreaming … and finally, go on exactly where we left off.
If you fail, you often doubt yourself. Not smart or talented enough – so is usually your own assessment.
However, according to US studies, a quite different factor has far greater impact on reaching goals than intelligence or talent. What counts most is perseverance.
