The importance of mindset

One’s mindset affects one’s acting a great deal. A mindset that is passive and lazy will reap actions that are perfunctory. The way you view things influences heavily the way you do things. For example, sleep can be viewed in different ways. For some sleep is a haven, others an obstacle, others a tool. The view of waking life affects the view of sleep just so. Those who desire little or nothing may see sleep as a haven which is then overused. But for those who see life mainly in terms of their waking life, sleep becomes a necessary function in the grand view of waking life. Sleep is not something to look forward to, waking up is- sleep is simply recharging one’s batteries. Like a phone, a human works best when rested and recharged, but the purpose of a phone is to be awake and provide information, and recharging makes this possible. Likewise, a human being who views waking life as most important will see sleep as a function that enables us to enhance our waking life.
