Single-Minded



Some people are single-minded in their pursuits. They can concentrate for long periods of time. Their mind is set and ready. They are fervent and ardent in desire. And they will fight to accomplish the tasks at hand. To them, nothing is impossible if one truly believe in it, if one really want it, and if one work hard and go all the way for it. They will put in everything they have just to see their dreams come true.

Some people are double-minded in their pursuits. They can only concentrate for short periods of time. They love to chase after new things and their attention is easily diverted. Their joy and love for a particular task is short-lived. Very soon they will opt out for no apparent reason. Then you will see them doing their tasks as directed and required, without any form of creativity or logical consideration to improve and upgrade themselves. They can't wait to hurry through a task that they may relax or finding some other things of interest. Inconsistency and hypocrisy have caused the fall of many, they become inefficient and ineffective in their pursuits.

Some people are empty-minded in their pursuits. They cannot concentrate on anything in their lives. Nothing can draw their attention. Nothing will stir them up to action, and they just don't like to follow orders. They walk around doing nothing but targeting others. They love to turn discussions into strife and argument. They love to criticize and condemn others. They just love to create more dislike, displeasure, dissatisfaction, distrust, envy, embitterment, contempt, and a whole lot of others that hurt more to others. Then they walk away feeling very happy and satisfied. They are born a loner, a loser, anti-social, anti-establishment, and they can never share their lives long with others. They love to keep things to themselves, stay away far from the crowd, look scornfully at others, sneering at others as much as they want, but often barking at the wrong tree. These people are totally defeated in their everyday life.

If we can all be single-minded, whole-hearted, and fully committed in the things we do, and seek to share them for the benefits of the rest of the world, and learn to appreciate others more and more, then this world will be a much, much better place for all of us. Have a nice day.

Yes indeed, it would be a better place to live. It just needs to start from every single one of us.
