The Meaning of Success

define-success

I have lot of money, the count of my assets has filled me with a feel of joy, Yes Now I am successful!! Does it goes same for a Saint, who thinks that he is successful because he has reached to the highest level of detachment from all the worldly pleasure. A man who is a writer ,doesn’t live a life of leisure , sits alone and smiles when he count the people who appreciated him for his work, a sense of being successful runs through his veins.

I have written on this subject earlier too, Success is something that we desire the most in our lives. Every passing day we count our efforts in the direction of being successful. Everybody is in a rate race of getting the tag of “Successful”. When we find the lack of something in our life then achieving that becomes our uttermost purpose, and such attainment gives us a sense of being Successful.Success is nothing but our search of happiness in those areas of life where we are lacking and want more. The sense of fulfillment in any aspect of life is a form of success.

A passing thought says that Success is nothing but our efforts of filling the gap in our lives that might have existed since long. A person who was born with a silver lined fortune but grew up watching family fights, lack of support and love will definitely feel that money is not that which gives a peace of being successful but this is the love and affection of family which makes someone successful, he will look for love everywhere and his success will be getting such people into his life.But a kid who has a loving mother but he begs on the road to get a meal , will think that having money is about being successful rest everything follows.

One of the most important key steps to achieving success in life is to know the meaning of success for your personal life. In reality, the true meaning of success goes far beyond the common definitions such as having a lot of money, being wealthy, having a lot of tangibles and earned degrees. Quite the opposite: true success in life cannot be measured with the above-named factors, but instead with the amount of people that are able to live a better and more advanced life because of what you created. This is the meaning of success. Not the trophies people are collecting in their lives. Media and society let us often conclude that living a successful life means to be extraordinarily wealthy and have a lot of tangibles. But the meaning of success is to live a happy life and to make this world a better place for everyone.The desires are never ending and so the urge of being successful, we are successful when our good deeds touch the lives of other and bring smile on a face not tears.

Be Successful first to meet your necessities first, Be successful to fill all the gaps in your life. But in the process of being successful , don’t be unsuccessful in making someone smile. The worst exchange in the race of being successful is compromising with your values and hurting the good ones who meet you in this journey. Stay Honest, Stay Good and Rest Will Follow……

As I always say- Do Good and Expect Good to Happen!! Life is a Blessing for Those Who Makes World a Better Place for Others.

I Will Rise…

images
I have been a part of history for you,
Nothing left to be said and nothing due,
I remember the twisted trues and all the lies,
The betrayal broke me then but I’ll still rise….
I remember the words that worked as sword,
It still pains when I look to that wound.
I remember those sleepless nights, Shoulders falling down like teardrops. 
The Weakened me by my soulful cries.
I remember the last sight when you killed me with your stranger eyes.
I remember everything but hopes just springing high,I have come a long way now and soon I’ll rise..Away from the chains of history’s shame, I will rise.
Up from a past that’s rooted in pain, I will rise.
I’m a deep ocean, leaping and wide, Welling and moving I bear in the tide.
Leaving behind all those drifts and fear ,Before my final day to go to the other “way” I’ll rise…  

The Lessons That We Learn In Hard Way..

file.jpg

“People never learn anything by being told,
they have to find out for themselves.”
―Paulo Coelho

Few days back, I woke up with a text about a close one’s sudden demise. Few colleagues and friends called me as soon as they got the news and offered their help.In the midst of my sorrow I now realize this tragic loss made me to realize certain things.First, time has its own unrevealed mystery.  Second, In any case our lives don’t stop , Our inner selves are strong enough to heal themselves with the passing time.  And finally, just as it is difficult to see all the opportunities life gives you until you’re looking back, it is virtually impossible to fully understand certain life circumstances until they actually happen to you.

It’s a variation of this final point that I want to explore further today , Few lessons that we learn in the hard way-

  1. The people you lose remain a part of you-

Someday we all have to face the reality of loss , it can happen due to any worldly reason. And as life goes on, days rolling into nights, it becomes clear that you never really stop missing someone special who’s gone, you just learn to live around the gaping hole of their absence and somehow stop expecting them to come in your way.

When you lose someone you can’t imagine living without, your heart breaks wide open, and the bad news is you never completely get over the loss.  You will never forget them.  However, in a backwards way, this is also the good news.  They will live on in the warmth of your broken heart that doesn’t fully heal back up, and you will continue to grow and experience life, even with your wound.  It’s like badly breaking an ankle that never heals perfectly, and that still hurts when you dance, but you dance anyway with a slight limp, and this limp just adds to the depth of your performance and the authenticity of your character.

  1. Being Happy in the life is more about finding its meaning-

Pursuing happiness is not at all the same as being happy, which is a fleeting feeling dependent on momentary circumstances.  If the sun is shining, by all means bask in it.  Happy times are great and often fun-filled, but happy times pass, because time passes.  This is something we rarely grasp at first and we again start seeking for happiness…

So better to find the meaning of your life and do something that gives peace to your soul. Desires are good but we have to put a stop somewhere to enjoy that we have in present.What you are really pursuing is meaning – living a meaningful life.  It starts with your “why.”  (Why are you doing what you’re doing with your life?)  When your “why” is meaningful, you are pursuing happiness.  There will be times when things go so wrong that you barely feel alive.  And there will also be times when you realize that being barely alive, on your own terms, is better than living a lifeless existence for eighty years on someone else’s terms.  The pursuit isn’t all or nothing; it’s all AND nothing, with ups and downs and worthwhile lessons along the way.

  1. Seeking validation from others invalidates YOU.

Has the fear of rejection held you back?  Have you ever been so fearful of what others might think or say about you that it kept you from taking positive action?  I bet you’re shaking your head, “yes.” It’s time to change your mindset…

Today, the only person you should try to be better than is the person you were yesterday.  Prove yourself to yourself, not others.  You are GOOD enough, SMART enough, FINE enough, and STRONG enough.  You don’t need other people to validate you; you are already valuable.If someone says “no” to you, or if someone says something negative about you, that doesn’t change anything about YOU.  The words and opinions of others have no real bearing on your worth.  Certainly it can be helpful and desirable to make a good impression in certain situations, yet it’s not the end of the world when you are faced with rejection. It’s great to receive positive feedback, but it simply doesn’t always happen.  That’s OK though, because you know where you’re headed and you know your true worth does not depend on the judgment of others.  When you set out to make a true difference in life, there will be those who disagree with you, those who ignore you, and those who flat out reject your ideas and efforts.  Look beyond them, step confidently forward, do what must be done, and let people make their own stories.

  1. Regret hurts far worse than fear.

When we give in to our fears, we have a harder time looking at ourselves in the mirror.  Sadly, very few of us escape learning this lesson firsthand.  If you have already experienced this a time or two, you know what you need to do.

It is only when we risk losing that we truly open the possibility to win.  Whether it is quitting your job to build a business, running a marathon, or traveling to unknown parts of the world, any worthy endeavor requires risk, struggle and sacrifice.  Some of these things may even terrify you, but ask yourself if these fears are stronger than the most powerful of fears, the fear of a wasted life?

If you’ve never lost your mind, you’ve never followed your heart.  It’s better to look back on life and say, “I can’t believe I did that,” than to look back and say, “I wish I did that.”  Don’t let time pass you by like a hand waving from a train you desperately want to be on.  Don’t spend the rest of your life thinking about why you didn’t do what you can do right now.  Live your life.  Take risks.  Feel passion.  Discover love. Stay Foolish. Go Crazy. 

Set yourself free to follow the instinct of your heart.

  1. Life is too unpredictable for rigid expectations.

When you stop predicting and expecting things to be a certain way, you can appreciate them for what they are.  Ultimately you will realize that life’s greatest gifts are rarely wrapped the way you expected. 🙂 

Let situations come in your life, let the fate play its role, With a positive attitude and an open mind, you will find that life isn’t necessarily any easier or harder than you thought it was going to be; it’s just that “the easy” and “the hard” aren’t exactly the way you had anticipated, and don’t always occur when you expect them to.  This isn’t a bad thing; it makes life interesting. Trust me Life is Good Anyway… 

Ninety-nine percent of the time life delivers the experiences that are most helpful for your personal growth.  How do you know it’s the experience you need?  Because it’s the experience you’re having.  The only question is:  Will you embrace it and grow, or fight it and fade?????

  1.  Hardships are inevitable and helpful.

Nobody in this world is going to blindside you and hit you as hard as life will. Sometimes life will beat you to the ground and try to keep you there if you let it.  But it’s not about how hard life can hit you, it’s about how hard you can be hit while continuing to move forward.  That’s what true strength is, and that’s what winning the game of life is all about.When you have a lot to cry and complain about, but you prefer to smile and take a step forward instead, you are growing stronger.  Work through your struggles and hardships.  Even when it feels like things are falling apart, they’re not.  Take control of your emotions before they take control of you.  Everything will fall into place eventually.  Until then, learn what you can, laugh often, live for the moments, and know that it’s all worthwhile in the end.

At Last, the key is to stay good and do good to others, Rest will follow. The Most important lessons of life come with harsh , heart wrenching experience. Take the life as a learning school and welcome everything that comes your way!! 

Happy Living!! Happy Learning!!

Imagination- A Powerful Tool to Get the Life You Desire!!

Hello Friends!! Hope you are having  great day!!  Today I thought to introduce you to the energy that we all have in ourselves, that is a big deciding factor of our future. So here we start-

download.jpg

Have you ever come across the incidences like- You thought of Someone and suddenly that person appeared in front of you!! You witnessed an incident and suddenly realized that you have imagined it earlier!! You were possessing a dream of having your desired job and suddenly you get an offer of your choice!! Or the worst is- You sensed a problem quite before it actually occurred in your life. I am sure your answer will be “Yes” in all these scenarios .

If you notice there is one common factor among all the above mentioned examples. That is- IMAGINATION. All happened in the imagination first, then it came into reality. Many times we ignore and underestimate the power of our own imagination. It’s all about the vibration and our energy that bring changes in our lives and certain events take place. If we hold a thought for so long with a high intensity then there are chances that it will become our reality. Many philosophers have said ” Our Thoughts Create Our Future”.

Our greatest scientists also firstly imagine to invent something and imagined how it should look like, how it should function, they believed in their idea, worked in that direction and finally they ended with their great inventions!! In my words- Imagination is not an Imagination , it’s the first step of the process to create a Reality. So we should be very careful about taking our first step, We can lead to absolute Happiness or we can end up having a big sum of troubles too!! So start imagining a life full of achievements, love, abundance , excitement, good health , happiness and peace. Once you will be filled with the imaginations of such good things , I assure you that eventually you will start noticing the difference in your daily life..Things will start turning into your favour!! I don’t deny the fact that we should be real and realistic while imaging something, but at the same time we can always stretch our limits of achieving something. Thinking Big Will Not Harm You!!

As I have said it earlier also that it can take time , but don’t stop believing. Miracles Happen!! Just Give Some time to Time! Keep imagining ,Have Faith!
