If you’re currently worried about your future get busy! When you’re busy you won’t have time to worry. Does it really matter what you’re doing to stay busy? No!
Don’t say you can’t afford it. Give me a break! It doesn’t take any money to stay busy, does it? Volunteering? Walking? Running? Hiking? Reading? Working in the yard? Do these things cost money? I didn’t think so. If you’re currently out-of-work, or bored with life, get busy! It helps.
I know people that are out-of-work, extremely depressed, and feeling helpless. Why? The down time is not your friend. In fact, it’s killing you. Get busy! Turn the television off and get moving. Do something. Don’t just wait for an opportunity go and find one! Make one! Do you think someone is going to ring your doorbell and ask if you’re available? No! You have to go get it! And staying busy is one of the best ways to do it.
I am covering this today because I’ve been there. I have had things go wrong in my life. I have had situations in my life and business that worried me. Do you know what always helped me? Staying busy! It works for me and I know it will work for you. The funny thing about staying busy is you get more things done. Can you believe that? It’s true. The busier I am the more I get done. Period.
When you have all day to do something, you will take all day to do it. If you only have a few hours to do that same task, you will do it in a few hours. When you’re busy you will get more done. Staying busy keeps your mind active. It keeps your mind off all of the negative things you might be dealing with in your life.
Staying busy will help you crystallize your thinking about your future, your career and your life. Everything. If you stay busy you’re living! You’re participating in life! You’re a productive member of society! And here is the beauty of it all. You will see more opportunities come your way. You will be “out there” and aware of the opportunities in your community. Good things will start to happen to you and the depression will subside. So if you’re going through this right now, get busy! I hope this helps.
Good luck to you!
