I Am Bored
This post has been seen 7013 times.
I don’t know what it is about the phrase “I am bored” that irks me. But I hear it all the time…”I am bored,” “there is nothing to do at home” or “there is no light.”
The truth is that boredom is a state of mind that successful people don’t understand and just cannot relate to. Because successful people are never bored, they are always doing something. Writing a book, solving a problem (and boy are there problems), looking for the next best thing, blogging. They are always busy. They never have enough time to be “bored!”
You see boredom is an excuse for inaction. Its a sexy word that we sometimes throw around to disguise laziness. With the infinite amount of problems in the world, we can’t afford to say we are bored.
If you work in a company that has little work for you to do, ask for more, if they refuse use that time to work on your side business. If you are a student and your school is on strike, use that free time explore that hobby of yours. If you are bored of flipping through the many blogs out there because the news is stale and boring, start your own blog. But whatever you do…please please don’t ever say “I am bored.”
