The media, books and shows portray a problem and a solution fixed in a page of type, within the covers of a book, or in one hour with commercials. We set out looking for instant solutions.The problem is that we can end up spending all of our time chasing the leprechaun.
Among the most popular of beliefs about leprechauns is that they are extremely wealthy and like to hide their gold in secret locations, which can only be revealed if a person were to actually capture and interrogate a leprechaun for its money. (Quote from Wikipedia)
We look for that sure golden opportunity that requires only being in the right place at the right time. That way we don't have to face our fears and doubts or the penalty of failure. We can miss even seeing opportunities because they involve those 4 letter words; work and time.
We can end up ill prepared for what life throws at us. By all means we need to chase our dreams to the best of our ability. Just as long as we don't only focus on the destination. We need to ensure we have a quality journey.
Be careful. The instant fix syndrome is an addiction and like all addictions; it steals away our lives.
We should take time for reflection and thinking on what is happening right now; right here and being present. For that is our life.
