Nov 11, Matthew Trinetti rated it really liked it My main takeaway is this: Anything worth attaining, including your own happiness, takes practice and work. A couple months ago, when I temporarily got lost [See: How to Get Lost] and forgot why I was traveling, I came to a simple realization: To prevent this from happening again, I must constantly remind myself why Im here.
From that point on, I decided that every single day, I would reconnect with The Why. Always remember why. From this realization came another, simpler My main takeaway is this: Anything worth attaining, including your own happiness, takes practice and work. From this realization came another, simpler realization: Anything worth attaining takes practice and work. In this stream of thought, two types of people came to mind: Athletes and Monks.
Why does the athlete practice daily? Why does the monk pray all day, every day? Both the athlete and monk know their goal. And they know the optimal physical or mental state they need to reach their goals. The athlete needs to be focused. She knows what it feels like to be focused. The monk needs to be present and one with God. Reaching that state takes practice. So the athlete practices daily to help herself get closer, more quickly, to that peak physical and mental state.
The monk prays constantly to help himself reach that state of consciousness and oneness with God quicker and with more intensity.
But with practice, I think we can get there quicker. The same thing goes with happiness and inner peace. This is where Love Yourself comes into play. There will always be Ups. There will always be Downs. There are times when we feel aligned with the universe and everything is going great. Then there are times where we feel down and nothing seems to be going our way. We know the feeling of being on top of the world.
But reaching that physical, mental, or emotional state takes work. It takes constant, persistent, dedicated practice. The key is accepting that both the Ups and Downs will happen. And the challenge is in prolonging the Ups and shortening the Downs. Getting there takes practice. The best I can offer is the main message in this book: Love Yourself. And like anything else worth achieving, quickly getting and staying in that state takes practice.
