If you don’t believe me, take this simple test. Try to clear your mind and do only one thing: watch the clock for one minute. Did you make it? You may be surprised by how many people crave more time but struggle to stop everything. It’s hard to do and almost no one turns off completely. Many people become impatient as the seconds tick by, ironically, frustrated that time is not moving fast enough. Others go into what I call the “default mode” by keeping their mind in overdrive, thinking, thinking, thinking, so not to spare or waste a second in time.
It’s remarkable how long one minute can be when you are actually watching the clock and not racing against it. A minute is more time than you think. It is also enough time to make a difference in your day to day and ultimately, in your life. The beauty of taking time to relax and pause is that it doesn’t require time at the sacrifice of something else. Everyone can capture a minute or even more. And, oddly enough, by taking the time to pause, you can slow your emotional clock because pause brings perspective and perspective generally buys time.
"Put your hand on a hot stove for a minute, and it seems like an hour. Sit with a pretty girl for an hour, and it seems like a minute. THAT'S relativity." - Albert Einstein
Time doesn’t discriminate but it is what you make it. The minute you start racing, the clock does too, or at least, your perception of it does. When you breathe and take things slowly, time is more likely to be on your side. It becomes the asset instead of the liability, and the asset can bring on remarkable change. That change will be inspired by how you SET your energy and narrative. When you tap into the simple secrets of RELAX. SET. GO. you will quickly find your personal best and attract the same in others. Oh yeah, and you’ll be ready to dream bigger and to achieve more than ever before.
