Life comprises of disappointments ,incomplete objectives and didn't got what I wanted, there are numerous things that didn't go as I planned and it makes me extremely upset and I become dismal and hopeless however what happened is the past and allowing a second opportunity to yourself is everything thing one can manage. #secondchance#positivity#failures#thoughts @writersnetwork@miraquill
Do you want to be successful? I know most of you would think I am mad for asking the obvious answer to such an obvious question. Aren’t you? Everybody wants to taste it, after all!
But what does -Success mean to you?- This question holds more importance than the former. Is it raising a million-dollar business, securing a well-paid job, driving a luxurious car, being Popular or, generating a lot of money? How do you define it in your very own life is everything that does the work for you. It is spectacular that you have dreams that you want to turn into reality. But hey! Pause. Are you happy with your present life? It would be better to quote- Are you satisfied with the life you presently consider unsuccessful? All of us are crazily behind one goal or the other. We want things to turn for us in a certain way. Hence we submerge all of our precious life for that very prestigious purpose. This zeal is beautiful until it takes a toll on your mental health and happiness.
Too lost in racing behind, we hardly pay heed to how are we losing our contentment? How are we undervaluing our present happiness? Happiness and success both are sacred. We have been going all wrong our lives thinking that they always go hand in hand. We consider happiness a destination; that will knock on our drenched door when we wave Hi to our very affluent friend- Success. But no, this is not how things are in life.
“You need not be successful to feel happy. ”
Read it twice, thrice, or as many times as you need to until you feel this in your bones. Now I know most of you would disagree. How can I overpower happiness over success, right? We need to bear some pain to get the fruit in our hands. Working for our dreams is so empowering and a lot of such. I want you to understand that I am not asking you to be lazy, stop working for the better, or just do not set goals from now.
All I want from you is to be happy in the process. You can smile and sweat at the same time. Nobody said you to feel good once you have made it to a fancy goal or dream. There is not any rule like this. Happiness is our water; there is no need to make it a hefty cup of coffee. Though your craving for that cup of coffee is justified, it does not mean that you will stop consuming water until you finally have that coffee.
Perhaps we need to deal with things, situations, and people restraining us from reaching wherever we want. It is a necessary part of the process. But not being grateful enough for living in the present moment is wrong. This habit of not practicing gratitude makes us feel hollow even if we make it to one goal or a part of it. Because instead of rejoicing that small win, we pay attention to what did not go right or how much more effort we need to put in to reach the ultimate goal or the most supreme of all? How can someone be happy with such a hustle? Your dreams are a beautiful component of your journey. You must put your best to make them real without undermining the worth of your present life. For if there was no present, would the future ever exist? No! So calm your mind, cheer up and smile, be crystal clear of your goals and start doing things you want. Be proud of the life that you are presently living. And when we have had our crucial share of failures and wins, we shall know the real purpose behind our existence.
