Will You Get Bored As You Age?
The older that a person gets, the more bored they will become with their life if they are not constantly moving to a higher level in their existence. This means that a person needs to constantly make new goals for themselves and achieve them.
Boredom can hit a person at any age. It does not matter if you are 12 or 50. As human beings, we tend to get bored when we wake up and do the same thing that we did yesterday. If you feel like your life is like this, its time to make some changes in your life.
Let us start from where you are at right now. Are there any accomplishments that you failed to do thus far? Is there something inside of your soul that tells you that you are still meant to accomplish a goal that you have not completed yet?
Answering the above question will allow you to see that it will take strong effort to accomplish your interests. Most people in the world today do not reach their goals because they get sidetrack from other obstacles that get in the way of everyday life. Perhaps it is a cell phone ringing while you are trying to study or a post on social media that you want to read instead of doing your job.
How To Accomplish A Specific Task
We can only accomplish a specific task when we put 100% focus into it. For millions of people across the world, being bored is part of everyday life.
It may seem that life is most interesting when we are toddlers learning how the world works. A trip to the zoo is probably one of the most exciting times for children. Getting to see a giraffe or an elephant for the first time is exciting. However, to many trips to the zoo will create boredom. As you can see, a child can even get bored if they see the same things consistently.
How then as human beings can we make life less boring? After all, you can see mostly anything that you want on Youtube.com or search for it in Google.
Today, the art of waiting to see something in person is the next big phenomena. Can you have the discipline to not look at the world through social media and videos?
If you get to see everything that the world has to offer everyday through videos and searches, it does not allow you to explore it physically for yourself.
Are We Losing Human Touch In the World Today?
Human touch is getting lost in the world that we live in. It is amazing how seeing a friend on a Zoom call is exciting. However, there will be a big part of you that longs to see them in person. Even though you can see them 100% on video and get a glimpse of what they are doing, there is still something missing. You often do not feel fulfilled in seeing your friend until you are with them in person.
There is power of the human touch that makes a difference. We live in a world today that offers you everything at the press of a button. Everything is made for us in today’s world: cars, houses, boats, clothes, chairs, food, and the list goes on.
In earlier generations, people had to work for everything that they wanted. If you wanted a glass of water, you would have to walk down to the river with a bucket and get water. Today, we just turn our faucet on, and water is there. If we want food when we are hungry, we can go to McDonalds or another restaurant and buy it. Gone are the days where we had to wait for anything.
Human beings get bored when we get something to easy. If someone were to study for a degree in dentistry, working your way towards graduation would be exciting. You must read and pass your tests. This causes your mind to remain focused and disciplined. You have less time to let your mind wonder because you are focused on your studies.
A focused mind is a brain that will not be bored. We get bored when we sit around and do nothing or the same thing constantly. Learning something new frees us from the boredom of everyday life.
Therefore, waking up and doing something different each day is critical. Going a step higher in your life is what is needed. It is important that you make a list of accomplishments that you have already achieved. Also, write down what you hope to achieve some day. Keeping your mind focused on getting to the next level of your life will keep you from becoming bored.
Are You In Control Of Your Life?
Often, human beings fail to realize that they are in control of their own lives. We often want to blame outsiders for our failed growth in life. Perhaps we blame our boss for not giving us the promotion that we think we deserve. We may blame the fast-food industry for giving us food that makes us fat. Perhaps putting the blame on your mother for raising you wrong and destroying your opportunity for making you a success in life.
You can play the “blame game” all that you want. However, this will not solve your problem. Taking responsibility for your life is what is needed today. Making a step to accomplishing your next task in life is what you must do right now.
The Power Of Now
Are you the kind of person that puts things off until tomorrow? Do you often catch yourself saying, “I can’t do this right now because…….”? If that sounds like you, its time for a change.
You need to get used to the idea that you can create change right now. Let us say your vision is to become a CEO of a corporation someday. This type of job usually entails getting a bachelor’s degree in business and a master’s in business administration (MBA). You need to ask yourself right now, “Do I have these degrees?” If not, why not? What is holding you back from achieving your mission? You probably have tons of excuses such as, “I don’t have time to study. I will do it someday, but I am too busy to do it now. Its to hard. I don’t have the money to study. It takes to long to get a degree. Nobody will want to hire me when I am finished.”
As you can see, we human beings make up all kinds of excuses. We need to keep our focus on one thing. In this case, it is finishing college period. In this way, you can become the CEO that you desire to be.
If we do not accomplish our tasks today, our dreams will never be accomplished. The difference between millionaires and everyday people is that they practice the power of now. They accomplish their goals today and do not let it linger until tomorrow.
Millionaires make their dreams come true. Their lives are not boring because they are doing something different every single day to reach another goal or to accomplish the goal that they set out to do. They take different steps until they succeed. Success is more about not giving up and finding out what you are doing wrong so that you can accomplish your goal.
Millionaires tend to focus on their goal and do not give up on it. Even if it takes them 20 years to accomplish their goal, they make it happen.
If you ever watched the show Shark Tank, these millionaires and billionaires have seen some hard days in their lives before becoming successful. Many of them talk about being broke before making it to the top. They had dreams of being a successful businessperson. They let nothing stand in their way. They kept on going after their goals and accomplishing them one step at a time. They did not sit around blaming anyone else for themselves not getting ahead.
They also saw the leadership potential in themselves and decided to become their own boss. If you want to not be bored in life, you will have to be your own boss as well. Have you ever noticed that wealthy people have a certain glow about themselves? They have an inner confidence that the worlds general population is drawn to. The beauty of this is that they don’t have to do anything that they do not want to do.
Money gives you freedom to do what you want to in life, and it allows you to do something different every day.
Having a lack of money causes boredom. If you do not have the money to accomplish your dreams, life gets boring. Therefore, you must find a way to make good money so that you can: travel, start a business, visit family and friends more often, help a friend out that is in need. There are many reasons why money having more will make you less bored in life.
Poor people often complain about being bored because their life tends to stay the same. They often do not have the financial means to accomplish their tasks in life. Therefore, having enough money in life to do something fun takes good job skills. Good job skills can only be learned through the hard work of studying and learning to perfect your trade.
Whenever we lose our freedom, we tend to become bored in life. A lack of freedom means that someone else is controlling our lives and telling us what to do. Therefore, democratic societies of government will thrive, and communist governments will be more repressed. Communism does not allow people to think for themselves. It does not create a free society where people can find their own happiness and create things that they believe in.
If Your Task Is Too Hard, It Gets Boring
I recently started playing a video game. It was exciting at first. However, the game started to become boring because there was a level that I could not pass. The game was so hard that I eventually walked away from it because the game forced me to do the same thing repeatedly. I was caught in an infinite loop that never changed. When we do to much repetition, it gets boring.
You need to have something in life that allows you to keep on moving to the next level to create happiness.
High Risk Equals Less Boredom
Millionaires know that success is not just about hard work and skill. It is also 50% luck. Taking a chance in life is what matters the most. Let us say that you wanted to become a clothes designer and make millions of dollars doing it. How would you go about it? First you would need the skill to create fantastic clothes. After that, you need to sell them. However, where could you sell them to make money? The best place would be online and in department stores.
However, getting them online and in department stores will take advertising dollars. You need capital to take your idea and designs to market. Each industry has its own costs that are involved in advertising. Let us say that it takes $15,000.00 a month in advertising to earn $20,000. First, how would you come up with $15,000.00 if you only have $200.00 in the bank account? You would have to get the money from a: bank loan, credit card, friend, business partner or investor.
Now comes the hard part. Are you willing to take a risk and get the money that you need and possibly go into debt? The reason why millionaires become this wealthy is because they chose to go “all in”. They chose to risk their own money to either “sink or swim”. They wanted to have a better life and decided that they were either going to accomplish their goal or sit back and do nothing.
Most people do not know that millionaire’s risk everything to accomplish their goals. They have faith inside of them that says I must take this chance. If you sit back and do nothing, then nothing happens. If you put all in and you fail, you have learned something.
You may be surprised that many millionaires have gone bankrupt before making it big. Their ideas were not always gold mines. However, they never give up on achieving their dream. It is because giving up in life is boring. If you feel confident that what you are doing is going to work, you need to do it. Accomplish your goals and missions or else your life will be boring as well.
Millionaires take joy in buying a new home or the car that they want to drive. They get happy by picking out which Rolls Royce or Lamborghini they are going to drive. They never sit back and just let life happen as poor people do. They fight and fight. They have dreams that they want to accomplish in life.
If God gives you a talent, you should invest your time into creating a new talent that he has given to you. As you can see, become less bored in life involves you taking risks. There is a saying that goes, “Without risk, there is very little reward.”
Nobody likes to think that they are going to put themselves into financial jeopardy. However, most people that save their money in the bank and do nothing with it are often the unhappiest people. They take no risks, and they live the same life forever.
What good is it to retire with $500,000.00 in the bank and yet be bored with life. Thousands of retirement homes are full of unhappy senior citizens sitting on loads of cash but hating life. They are afraid to spend their money on travel or business. They would rather sit in a retirement home waiting to die than to live life again.
Losing money is scary. However, being bored will cause you to hate life. Researchers are beginning to see a fine combination between boredom and dementia. It is a fact that our brain constantly needs to learn and to work. When we stop working, so does our brain. We slowly begin to lose ourselves when we are bored.
However, there is also wisdom in all of this. You should never squander your money foolishly. Sometimes, it takes risk to get to the next level of life and we do not always get the reward that we are seeking right away. It often takes time and discipline to see that happening.
What Happens When You Live in Fear?
When you live in fear, you get bored. Only when we allow ourselves to go to the next level of life do we combat fear and find excitement. Now that you have more of an understanding as to why it takes risks in life to not be bored, you may rethink and reshape your life today.
At the end of the day, you have full control over your life. You need to decide if you will be an unhappy person forever never taking risks or being happy and realizing that even if you failed, you are least got to see a glimpse of what the next level of your life could be.
