Stages of life are defined through the age of the person. The positive thing in the picture is that I don’t believe neighed of it. It is because “I chose to” (wise words by Neo before defeating Agent Smith).
It is the mindset that carried people through their timeline and brought success into their lives. Energy, time, and money are the three most valuable resources used to gain one thing that is often diminished: Happiness.
Happiness is the smartest mindset that we used to know as kids, but subside it when we infuse the bad characteristics that society delivered to us. “The older the wiser” – maybe wiser for the society but not for ourselves.
How does the society infuse bad characteristics along our way? The answer is hiding between the lines in the stages of life.
People’s energy exists all the time. It doesn’t matter if its child, adult or elder. Did you know that the atoms in the rocks vibrate on any frequency? Because of the firm attraction between them they stay fixed. If those atoms start to vibrate on higher frequency they won’t be fixed, but they will tear apart and transform into solid form, such as igneous rocks can turn back into lava or magma if underground.
This proves that the statement “missing energy at older years” is incorrect. As long as we are able to breath and control our body we have the energy to create and destroy the things we want to accomplish. Too bad we have the ego and bad characteristics that can model us to destroy the things we want to attain.
However, the energy exists from day one up the last breath we exhale from our body and neither of the stages can belittle that from us. It is such an erroneous assumption to have your opinion that energy is minimized as the years stack.
Stated as the “the indefinite continued progress of existence and events in the past, present, and future regarded as a whole” is revealing that time is indefinite process. It has no limit and it cannot be measured. We only measure the days as 24 hours per day and we can conclude that as a child, adult, and elder, we have the same explicit hours per day.
There is a time when we need to play, when we need to learn, and when we need to put play and learn into action. That’s the only phase of time. There is no such a thing as “don’t have time”. There is only excuse to avoid the things we don’t like to do. We have time for everything and there is no such a thing as no time in adulthood.
Okay, we can agree that “financial resources” are not available since we are not able to make them in the early age, but neither do we need them.
It’s the thing that gives pleasure to human kind. So called the “capital” of ones possessions gives wealth and capability to have more freedom, but takes away our happiness.
Jordan Belfort in one interview said “Money is a problem that needs to be solved”. This is not a decade when you can just sit on your hands and let the business go, but you need to take actions and you do it NOW!” He was more than right on that one, but people forget that living life is more important than living life to money.
“It’s a problem that’s need to be solved”. Do we hang on one problem for our whole lives? Of course not. The circle goes: problem, solution, action, and again all the way around.
“Only when the last tree has died and the last river had been poisoned and the last fish been caught will we realize we cannot eat money”. It will be too late if we need to realize that.
Remember, money is a solution for many things, but if we put emphasize on it, we can lose all the things above together with the main thing, happiness.
The Last Stage
I’ve read the question dozens of times and it regained my consciousness as more I cross my way with it. At the end of the day, are you happy? That’s the most important stage of all. If the answer is positive you are directing towards terrific path in life. If the answer is negative you need to reset your mindset, and do that now!
You have all the greatest stages of life available and reachable. Energy and time are available and money is obstacle that needs to be conquered.
Start to see things as they are, but not worse than they are which is what lot of people done. They say it’s so terrible and tell themselves lousy stories why they can’t take action and the story they tell it’s exactly the thing that holds them back from being happy. It’s the exact bulls**t story that stops them from acting towards happiness. We need more self-improvement and less stacked problems.
If you read it clearly you would know where the intruder “between the lines” is.
