Do you ever feel like you have nothing worthwhile to do? Maybe you have too much idle time on your hands, you’re waiting to find a job, passing time while your health improves, or waiting for someone to make a critical decision so you can proceed with a new activity? If so, wait no more!
You have important work to be doing.
Success in life is not about waiting for something to happen around you. It’s about making things happen by keeping your thought productively occupied and profitably engaged.
Activity is the result of thought in action. For something to change for the better, thought needs to improve. Thought needs to go to a better place. And you can be the one that effects that change.
You don’t have to wait for someone else to change their mind. You don’t have to wait for the body to change to find better health. You can make circumstances change by getting a more inspired view of what God is causing to happen in the first place.
In Truth, we live in a universe of Mind where abundance abounds, health is present and opportunity is everywhere. If you’re not seeing it, it’s not because it isn’t there. It’s because you’re entertaining a limited material view of what spiritually exists.
And whose thought needs to change for the view to change? Yours!! That’s right.
You have no time to waste. You have work to do. Metaphysical work that moves thought and takes your view and experience higher.
Strive for an enlightened spiritual view of God’s good all around, and you’ll find plenty of ways to stay fully employed and happily engaged.
Improve Your Time
By Mary Baker Eddy
Success in life depends upon persistent effort, upon the improvement of moments more than upon any other one thing. A great amount of time is consumed in talking nothing, doing nothing, and indecision as to what one should do. If one would be successful in the future, let him make the most of the present.
Three ways of wasting time, one of which is contemptible, are gossiping mischief, making lingering calls, and mere motion when at work, thinking of nothing or planning for some amusement, — travel of limb more than mind. Rushing around smartly is no proof of accomplishing much.
All successful individuals have become such by hard work; by improving moments before they pass into hours, and hours that other people may occupy in the pursuit of pleasure. They spend no time in sheer idleness, in talking when they have nothing to say, in building air-castles or floating off on the wings of sense: all of which drop human life into the ditch of nonsense, and worse than waste its years.
“Let us, then, be up and doing, With a heart for any fate; Still achieving, still pursuing, Learn to labor and to wait” Miscellaneous Writings, p. 230.
