Just Do It
Pressure does two things bursts pipes and creates diamonds. Which one are you?
Never strike out of anger if at all possible, this will give your enemy the advantage and strengthen his resolve and psyche. In life there will be so many pressing demands, and there will be a mass of pressure on you, but you must be so disciplined so that you can go through these things and come out victorious. There is no such thing as talent. There is pressure. In real life, as it is in fiction, character is both formed and revealed when we are tested. When we are forced to make decisions under pressure, that test can either make us stronger or it can highlight our weaknesses and crack us into pieces. Diamonds are only lumps of coal that stuck at it no matter how much heat or pressure they faced. Pressure will squeeze whining out of losers and winning out of achievers. What you’re going through is not meant to hurt you, but meant to deliver you from the evil oppressing you. Turn your pressure into Power, and your anxiety into Productivity. If thinking and reason crack under pressure of emotional convulsions or when commissioned facts are resulting from fibs and fake constructions, truth may be in great peril.
Don´t let your work define you. But let you define what works for you to defy and refine you even more. Expectations. Strong belief something will happen in the future. Pressure. A motivator. A positive. An indicator you are in the right place. The change is in the air, do you want to be part of it, or do you want to let the pressure reach your door? The feeling one has no time to get anything done provides the pressure that guarantees one does get some things done. Social Media constantly exerts pressure on individuals to conform to the moral code of conduct and the individual always tries to free himself from the shackles of morality. A strong person redefines the morality of society while a weak person is crushed by the society’s moral pressure. That inability to discover whether you jumped or were pushed brings about a deadened gaze and a downfall all it’s own. You must stop living under the pressure of the environment and surrounding and culture and tradition.
The pressure of adversity is the most powerful sustainer of accountability. It’s as though everything you do is multiplied by 50 in order to surpass those with a head-start. I was never capable of slacking when at the threshold of failure. The fictitious characters of movies undermine our personal relationships with others. we are constantly under pressure to fit into the mold created by fiction, and we find it impossible to satisfy our partner as none of us have the ability to come to the level of the ideals set by the hero or heroine in the movies. we often crushed under such fallacious expectations which create frustration and anger between the partners. Our task is not to yield to the pressure of our environment. Whether we know it or choose to admit it, we are either an Encourager or a Discourager. We each make a choice as to which type we will be every day. No matter how good you are at planning, the pressure never goes away. So I don’t fight it. I feed off it. I turn pressure into motivation to do my best.
It all just makes you feel insignificant, doesn’t it? You spend your life barely surviving the grind, living in an endless cycle, doing the same thing over and over again, depending on drugs and the numbness they bring to see another day and it’s all for nothing. In the grand scheme of things, you’re nothing. Right. And we all come from this planet, which as far as we know, is the only place in the universe where life can naturally form and exist. The slightest change in temperature or pressure of the atmosphere, and that’ll be the end of us. But it’s not just that. For us to even have the smallest of chances to exist, Earth had to be the right distance from the Sun, and the Sun had to be the right size and age. Stars had to be born in the first place, atoms had to exist exactly like they do. The Big Bang had to happen. For you to even be a possibility, the universe had to be born in just the right way.’ He turns to face her, and she returns his gaze. ‘We’re just two out of billions of people, on a rock orbiting a ball of fire, alive at a point in time that allows us to witness humanity make the biggest, most bewildering discoveries. Two people who could have been anywhere in the world, separated by time, space, circumstances. Yet after all we’ve been through, all that’s happened to us, here we are, now. Sharing this moment together. We’re not insignificant. We’re miracles.
So many people turn to unhealthy solutions to deal with their anxiety, fears, worries and physical, mental or emotional struggles. When you’re feeling pressured or worried, either Produce, Pray, Work Out or just Breathe. Turn your Pressure into Power and Productivity. The reason you’re going through what you’re going through is to receive the things you’ve been praying for. The hatchet must fall on the block; the oak must be cleft to the center. The weight of the world is on my shoulders. Here is the pen and the paper; on the letters in the wire basket I sign my name, I, I, and again I. There’s a kind of pressure that your own life muscles onto you, to do something just like you would do, to behave just like yourself. Growth ought to simplify life. Right? Wrong. The more truth I assimilate, the more I am aware of what I should be and do. You know what this produces? Tension. Pressure has the power to create a diamond, but it has to be the “right” pressure.
Be a diamond. Flourish under pressure.
