There is an ancient saying in China goes as: If your ship is against the current, you lose your ground when you don't advance.
Isn't this talking about life?
If you want something, you need to work at your best constantly.
But many other sages have told us that sometimes you need to slow down so that you can find peace and see clearly what you truely want in the first place.
The competition in our society is fierce. It is now. It used to be. And it will be.
And at the same time. We have family, friends and lovers who we need to cherish.
But we all only have 24 hours a day.
And a lot of time among these hours have to be used to rest. Otherwise we won't be able to survive.
Yes, your energy is limited. There are limitations that you cannot go beyond.
So you really need to remind yourself that sometimes life does take patience.
There are things that you can't do only with your determination. They require your patience.
Slow down. Shake off some anxiety. Find more peace. By doing this you can actually go farther.
