Every day .. midnight seems to speed by me ..with me wondering . on a DAILY basis whether maybe, possibly , sleep is a good idea , with the obvious excuse of ‘no its ok , a few minutes won’t hurt’ . Human Psychology 101 huh ? I mean , we keep looking for excuses for everything , ‘oooh, i’ll eat just ONE more slice’ or ‘i’ll sleep just ONE more hour’ .
So when do the excuses stop actually ? Do they EVER stop ? It requires a very high level of discipline and a desire to have things done in only one specific way , leave gap for another path and it’ll push and poke at your conscience until you’re forced to give in to the simpler way and possibly , more harmful . The reason for crimes ,obesity , inefficiency and every other rampant problem available in our world . So the obvious question that arises is , how do we get rid of it .. There must be a way to end it.
Everything is actually dependent on our childhood, however our mentality is , our childhood and how we’re brought up affects everything about us. I watched a fascinating documentary recently called “My Brilliant Brain” , in which a trained psychologist starts giving his very young daughter specialised training at that age itself so that when she grows up she’s an expert ,beyond imagination. She learnt chess and in a male dominated sports she destroyed any stereotype against women by proving that she could beat the best , at their best .
Now suppose every child that sort of training from a young age , their whole motivation would be directed towards it , thus reducing chances of any sort of diversion. This way they are already accustomed to ‘discipline’ IN a certain discipline . It’d be possible to implement this if instead of all parents were given training on how to raise children and what they should be exposed to . Maybe a social experiment of this sort conducted over a small region would seriously help us understand the motivations of children and what leads them from one path to the other, from being weak-willed to being strong-willed. I obviously have no power to even try something of such magnitude , but suggesting it does feel good nonetheless..
