Sometimes things in life are just chaos, an anarchy where there is an utter absence of order, discipline, and control. Things haven’t been different for me either. And I believe I have figured out the reason behind this chaos, this disorder, this indiscipline. The reason is Focus, or rather lack of it. I have been wanting to do certain things for some time now. Any thought of these things generates wonderful feelings in my heart. Clearly, it’s something that I want to do. But, what prevents me from doing it? I. Me. Myself. My lack of focus. The photograph above reminded me of my lack of focus. The girl doing yoga is perfect. Perfectly beautiful. Perfectly built. Perfect figure. Yet, what attracted my attention was not her physical appearance (alright, I admit for a few moments it actually did! But only for few fleeting moments…) , but her posture. Her involvement in yoga. Her focus. The world around us is also distracting like this beautiful girl. Its alright to indulge once in a while; but we must stay focused. I must stay focused.
That’s been one of my mantras – focus and simplicity. Simple can be harder than complex: You have to work hard to get your thinking clean to make it simple. But it’s worth it in the end because once you get there, you can move mountains.
