Better Life Vs Bitter Life

Are you among those who feel they are victims and that success is elusive? You have to learn not to be a victim, but a victor. You have become victim to you psychological patterns, your idiosyncrasies. These patterns, so often represent your failures, which do not allow you to celebrate outer success. Hence, in spite of success, you experience failures.

When you carry your hatred inside your mind and heart for long, your hatred will spoil your mind and heart. Learn to drop hatred as soon as possible. Your life, so often, is spoilt due to your differences with others. Differences with others need not end up as hatred. Differences are just differences, but the moment the mind gives them a name tag of hatred, mind and heart get polluted.

We are so often a product of society; human beings are social beings. We are impacted by social expectation. You have to be alert not to become a slave to society and at the same time respect society. You have to relate intelligently to society, lest you become a social slave. When you become a slave to society, you are afraid of society. Such fear will make your life ineffective.

With fear, you will not be able to discern facts of life. With fear, your perception will be distorted. Then instead of the actuality of life, only the illusion of life will be experienced. You have to drop fear. Then you will comprehend facts as facts, otherwise fear will distort facts to fit into its manipulations.

Also you tend to become victim to your inner conclusions, inner beliefs, and these could dominate your life. Your mind is not free from the victimisation by all the inner conclusions and beliefs and the external impact of society. If you are a victim of your conclusions, then your thinking is not free, it is bound. Such a bound mind can never think differently.

In management one talks of “out-of-the-box thinking”. So you can free yourself from conclusion and beliefs and operate from openness. All this needs psychological alertness, but most of us are psychologically lazy, We don’t want to change. It is easy to follow what has been decided. You need strength to think differently and not to allow fear to guide your life. You will do business better and live a better life rather than a bitter life.

Motivation is Greater Than Favour

Super achievers are not born. They are self made people. It is not external favours that makes one a super achiever but one’s own struggle. Super achievements it not got through inheritance but self acquired success. No one is born a billionaire but everyone is a potential billionaire. It is one’s own potential that makes one a billionaire or super achiever.

Nature does not discriminate between one person and another. Nature’s gifts come to everyone equally. It is the receiver himself who either utilises them or not. The so called deprived persons are in fact privileged persons. Their state of deprivation serves as inner motivation. When they see others are progressing it creates a string of incentives in the mind. It is this incentive that makes a person super. It inculcates a strong urge in the individual to make something of his life.

Any state of deprivation brings about a kind of brainstorming which enhances inner spirit. They enter the world of competition working to the full capacity. They develop the spirit of do or die. It is this spirit that leads then to success. Contentment kills motivation. Discontent activates one’s mind and trigger a fire within one to do hard work.

One who is born into a poor family and achieves success by way of struggle achieves one more thing which is more important than wealth-that is, intellectual development. His circumstances automatically develop an intellectual struggle in his mind. This struggle unfolds his inner capacity and consequently he emerges as an intellectually developed person. One who is born in state of affluence could become intellectually dwarfed while one who is born in poor circumstances could emerge as an intellectual giant. The laws of nature are greater than everything else. They are eternal: they cannot be changed. The law of nature in this regard tells that it is not ease but effort, not facility but difficulty that makes men.
