If your heart is not into something, don’t do that.
We billions of people on earth need to earn a living. Isn’t it. To earn a living, we need to work. Now everyone has different skills and they are earning living of that. But, is just earning a living for which we are born. No! Definitely No!
Even animals/birds or different creature is earning a living and they are surviving. Is just surviving our goal? Humans are the only creatures who have highest IQ level. We can’t outcast animals or most of the animals with our physical strength. We are not the most physically stronger creature in this universe. But having great intelligence is our biggest strength.
More than half of population in this world are working just for the heck of earning a bread & not for happiness. Day by day, Humans are just becoming robots and sadly robots are designed who are smarter than humans. Do you really want to be a robot?
If happiness would have been earned by money, then none of the rich people would have been in stress. Choose a career which you enjoy. Never choose something which takes your happiness away. If we see world’s successful people like Bill Gates, Jack Ma, Ratan Tata, Warren Buffett etc, Most of them are so involved in social activities and spending their own wealth on that. Why do you think they are doing that? It gives them happiness.
Involve yourself into the things you Love
We have heard about famous sports persons like Ronaldo, Sachin Tendulkar etc. They had so much passion for kicking or hitting the ball. They were totally involved in it. To be involved in something that doesn’t mean a thing to you, is different. It is something that people cannot understand. People can be involved in only that which means something to them. People do not know how to be totally involved with something which doesn’t mean a thing to them.
Earning hell lot of money will not let you live forever. Even if for a second, we assume you live forever, do you want to live wealthy or happy? Choose what you want to do wisely. Don’t end up losing your happiness.
Don’t get into race to conquer everything
When I say, don’t get into the race is what I mean by don’t do the things because others are doing it. For example, I myself like to work where there is client facing activities. You need not to choose the same because I am doing it. Choose something what you really enjoy doing. Maybe you will not earn millions or billions, but you will be surely happy. And believe me you will be successful too when you enjoy what you do. Being Happy is anytime better than earn billions.
Do you enjoy when you come first or you just enjoy that others are behind you? Teach your next generation to not enjoy others misery but to enjoy what they are doing. Don’t put them in the race of coming first. They will then just like to see others to lose. Let them enjoy what they are doing.
How many of you have watched this movie Forest Gump? This is one of my favorite movies. Some take-away from the movie
- You’ll Never Know What You’re Capable of If You Don’t Try: Forrest Gump was born with a back that was requiring him to wear braces on his legs. A constant target for bullies, his only childhood friend famously advised him to “run, Forrest, run!” when they began picking on him. He broke free of his braces and later enjoyed a successful career as a college athlete. (Then he ran across the country for three years, but that’s another lesson.) Always try. You may surprise yourself.
- Do What You Love, No Matter What: Forrest loved mowing the lawn so much that he did it even when he was a “gazillionaire.” From the outside, that must have looked foolish, but he didn’t care: He was always true to himself. Be honest with yourself about what makes you happy.
Can’t stop myself from sharing some quotes from the Movie 😊
‘Life is like a box of chocolate. You never know what you’re gonna get.’
‘Forrest: What’s my destiny, Mama?
Mrs. Gump: You’re gonna have to figure that out for yourself.’
You need to find out what you want and what you like.
