Having a set of strong beliefs is like coming to the world with a user guide. Many of us do have strong beliefs but fail to have them present all the time because of the mad life that modern world proposes us to live. We have the manual, but we don´t read it. There are companies like Seventh that manufacture timepieces that can work for you as reminders that you stand for something, or how strong your beliefs are. Read on to know why Seventh Ethos can be the perfect watch to remind you of who you are at all times.
The first step in this path of self-discovery through your deepest beliefs is to know what matters to you the most. This is very important since it is very likely the core of your belief system. These beliefs are not formed in one day or in one decisive moment of your life. It is more like the opposite, you acquire them through all of your life and those beliefs are the ones that make you react in a certain way when things get tough.
To know which your core beliefs are, you have to do some introspection and start from the core belief to expand it. Some people think that the foundational stone of their life is their family. Others put work first in the podium. Some others put success or academic achievements. This is a mistake. Those are all goals and not beliefs. In fact, your beliefs are what will take you to achieve those goals.
Core beliefs can be forged in early childhood and continue on to be shaped while you are growing up. They tend to be what makes you go through the teenage years and are there for you, fully formed, by the time you reach adulthood. Some of those beliefs can be related to effort. Usually, hard-working people get the best results and, speaking with them you will quickly realize that strong work ethics were taught to them either verbally or setting the example by someone in their family.
To have a reminder of those core beliefs like the ETHOS by Seventh watches can be crucial at some moments in your life. For example, if your belief has the shape of a sentence, a slogan or a motto like “if you work hard you can get anything in your life”. Going back to the goals set at the beginning, it is easy to make the link between hard work and successful results in any and all those areas.
Once you have done that soul-searching and introspection needed to find that foundational motto, slogan or simple sentence, it is time to put it into practice. What does it mean to live boldly by your beliefs? It means to have the courage to follow that statement and beat all the misadventures you will have in between thought or intention and action or result.
In a world in which most people live without making this exercise of self-exploration, it is becoming increasingly difficult to live by noble beliefs.
On one hand, you have temptation, distraction and all kinds of deviations. It takes boldness and decision to say no to some bad habits, excesses and even fun activities that are not related to your core beliefs. These are all short-term outcomes, usually in the form of instant gratification.
On the other hand, you have the potential positive results that are beyond instant gratification and very likely next to a pile of hard work. This boldness of saying no to instant gratification and going, many times against the current trend and everyone around you, is what it takes to go beyond. Being brave in this case is very closely related to being different, being the odd-one-out.
Those who are prepared to live boldly by their beliefs, trust their talents and, most importantly, love the process more than the outcome are the ones who get the highest rewards. It is through strong beliefs like work ethics and effort and love that you might be able to reach long-term happiness instead of only instant gratification. Having the ETHOS by Seventh to remind you of this on your left wrist might just be the perfect way of knowing at all times which the path to take is based on your beliefs.
Lastly, this is closely related to being, a change-maker. To stand for what you believe is not only to do it for yourself, but also to go after bigger causes and touch others with your message.
For example, being an ambassador of change to make the world a better place is to wear a wooden watch like the Seventh Ethos. With this wooden watch in your hand you will not only be reminded to stick to your beliefs every time you look at your wrist but also you will be the ambassador of change, the odd-one-out, the bold who dare to take the step forward.
It will surely take effort but will definitely pay off. In this regard, it is an entire chain of efforts applied to this watch. The people at Seventh are the ones who boldly took a step and transformed their beliefs of hard work, innovation, and excellence to create a timepiece that sends a message but is also flawless and beautiful. The chain follows with you, wearing the watch, talking to your friends about it, answering questions and fostering the brand´s message beyond yourself.
Wooden watches like the ones that Seventh sells are a statement by a company that truly believes in something and works under a heavy work ethic. All woods and materials used by the company in the making of the luxurious timepieces are sustainable. All watches are handcrafted by skilled artisans and every piece is unique. This chain of work shows how and why Seventh is a company that chooses the most difficult and rewarding path instead of the easy one. They could have just invested the same money and have pieces manufactured in China and make more money easily, but they don´t. they take the path of boldness and beliefs.
They stand for what they believe in, do you?
