The activities and responsibilities that lead us through our days, months, and years can cause us to go through life in a daze. And as the clock continues to turn, we get so caught up in getting through the day… we begin to lose sight of the possibilities ahead.
Our present routines leaves us working for today… causing us to gradually neglect our future. Many people fall victim to this social process, while neglecting one important life principal.
THERE’S A TRADE-OFF TO EVERYTHING WE DO!!!
In other words… for everything we do in life, we’re sacrificing on the opposite end of the spectrum, and what most people fail to realize is that the opposite ends are either Positive or Negative!
If you’re spending your nights going to school (POSITIVE)… you’re sacrificing your free-time hanging out/watching television (NEGATIVE)!
If you’re spending your days committing crimes (NEGATIVE)… you’re sacrificing your freedoms and rights as a citizen. (POSITIVE)
If you’re working aimlessly without any plans for a future (NEGATIVE)… you’re sacrificing accomplishing greater goals and improving your life (POSITIVE).
WHAT WE CHOOSE TO DO NEGATIVELY, IS A TRADE-OFF OF WHAT WE COULD DO POSITIVELY!
AND VICE VERSA!!!
But remember this… whichever end of the spectrum we choose (POSITIVE or NEGATIVE) is the one we will attain! This trade-off falls on the old principal… “We shall find what we seek.”
So if you seek higher education; your trade-off is wasting your free-time… but eventually you’ll find your education.
If you seek a life of crime; your trade-off is a life of freedom… but eventually you’ll find your incarceration.
And if you seek an aimless lifestyle; your trade-off is improving your life… and eventually you’ll find a life with no future.
BECAUSE WHAT WE FAIL TO REALIZE IS…
WHETHER CONSCIOUSLY OR UNCONSCIOUSLY,
WHAT WE DO EVERYDAY… IS WHAT WE’RE ACTUALLY SEEKING IN LIFE.
(JUST BE AWARE OF WHAT YOU’RE TRADING!)
