Lately, I have been wondering about the contradictions in our thoughts and actions:
- We want to be slim but we eat too much
- We want to be smart but we miss the class, or don’t read the books
- We want happy relationships but we sabotage them with our actions
- We have dreams but we don’t set goals
- We want to achieve our goals but we don’t plan
- We plan but don’t take the action
- We worry about retirement but we don’t save
- We want to finish the project but we don’t stay focused
- We want to wake up early but we don’t go to bed early
The list goes on. Are human beings lazy, indisciplined, indecisive and stupid by nature? Do our genes not have the willpower to fight temptations, to persevere, to do the right thing?
What do you think?

people can dream all they want, plan and set goals and even work for them… but in the end they might have to settle for not reaching for their dreams cus they have to trample over or hurt too many people to get their dreams. Human beings are just that… humans and they have hearts and impulses and urges and are sensitive and insecure so even if things are good they feel they’re too good to be true and end up sabotaging them. some people might see these as weaknesses – others as strengths. who decides what’s the ‘right thing’?
Wow…..Sara sweetie….what deep thoughts…..when did you become so mature, so profound!
hehe shiba aunty i think i was jus having one of those days! they don’t come very often:)
sara, i agree with shiba. very profound!
thanks Mush, some times a lot of we want but we r n’t follow up with ‘way how to achieve it”
thanks, budi. you mean we all know what we want, but don’t know how.
you cannt b perfect all d time but atlst one can try…”Try Try again”….
thanks, tash. i am not so sure if trying again and again is the answer. many keep trying without the skill or the right method.
I guess we look for the easy way out. We are in a quest for that quick fix to reach our goals than actually pondering over how best to reach our goal.
Most often we are trying hard to justify why we didn’t succeed rather than find new ways to get there.
there is a nice saying that says….
‘If you did what you always did, you will get what you always got.’
a correction to the saying…
‘If you always do what you always did , you will always get what you always got.’
thanks, hema. so true!
