Restlessness is a
character trait that I would vigorously encourage. I have a restless
personality and I am proud of it. When we are restless, our brain is
letting us know that we can learn more, we can do more and
we can achieve more.
Throughout my life I have been restless and impatient and I have been
frowned upon by family members, relatives, friends and acquaintances who
would tell me that I was restless, impatient and ambitious.
My restlessness was
seen as a negative emotion, outlook or attitude and it was something I
had to work through and deal with. It was opt to me to accept my
current situation or standing and be okay with my lot or I could do something to
satisfy my restlessness and improve my life.
to change course and took another path that was available at the time.
Of course I was skeptical which is normal, but I could feel that
something was missing and I had to find out; that I could do more and
have more in life. Yes, at an early age, I
already believed that life is how we make it. If we have faith and we
stick to what is good, what is true, what honest and what is real, we
will always prevail.
we are restless, our mind is telling us to dream and to strive for more.
Restlessness is the emotion we experience before we make a change. It is
the trigger, the catalyst that induces us to take action; the wakeup call that what we have now is not enough and we must
treat restlessness as a call to action, brought on by boredom, so surely
the solution to it is to take steps and remove the boredom.
restlessness is not enough to achieve our dreams. It is simply the first
step. We have to act on it. Whether we are restless about a relationship
we want stop or start, restless about our job prospects and how
unfulfilling our job is or restless about our yearning to travel,
about how big the world is and we want to see more of it. They are all
positive forethoughts, donít keep those worries and aspirations inside but take them,
understand them and act on them accordingly.
us be grateful that we are restless, pity the ones who are
contented with less. Our restlessness means we are not accepting the
status quo. Nothing comes to those who wait and time is running out the
door we are running in.
If there is
dissatisfaction with the status quo, that is good. If there is anxiety,
so much the better. If there is restlessness, then
let there be ideas, hard thoughts, and hard work. If we feel small,
let us make ourselves bigger.
is discontent and discontent is the first necessity of progress. Show me
a thoroughly satisfied man and I will show you a failure.
know there is more to life, so let us go out and get it. Get restless
and be fulfilled.
