Each minute of our life is a lesson but most of us fail to read it. I thought I would just add my daily lessons & the lessons that I learned by seeing the people around here. So it may be useful for you and as memories for me.
Life is not a Race to WIN… Life is like a Journey , to ENJOY every moment. We are running through life so fast that we forget not only where we have been but also where we are going.
There is no reward for completing the race my friend. Please run at your own speed and run how you like it.
Don’t try to run other’s race. It is your own race run how you like it.
Stop worrying about the consequences. Live in the present, share the glory of being a part of this race. No amount of gold, silver or money will or can compensate what you will miss if you try to rush things and miss the very essence of running.
Don’t just run for the sake of running because running is important and not the race!!
Do not undermine your worth by comparing yourself with others. It is because we are different that each of us is special.
Do not set your goals by what other people deem important. Only you know what is best for you.
Do not take for granted the things closest to your heart. Cling to them as you would your life, for without them, life is meaningless.
Do not let your years slip through your fingers by living in the past, nor in the future. By living your life one day at a time, you live all the days of your life.
Do not give up when you still have something to give. Nothing is really over until the moment you stop trying.
Do not be afraid to encounter risks. It is by taking chances that we learn how to be brave.
Do not shut love out of your life by saying it is impossible to find. The quickest way to receive love is to give love; the fastest way to lose love is to hold it too tightly.
Do not dismiss your dreams. To be without dreams is to be without hope; to be without hope is to be without purpose.
Do not run through life so fast that you forget not only where you have been, but also where you are going.
We have born and brought up in society, where we were prepared to compete with others – your fellow mates and friends.
The seed had planted when you were at school. The pressure of scoring highest marks, the pressure of performing well in sports, the weight of getting admission into a renown college, getting a good job and again getting into an unhealthy competition at the workplace.
Life is not a race, but a journey to be savored each step of the way.
When you were in college, you wanted a job.
When you got a job in service-based company, You wanted product-based.
When you got 6 LPA package, you wanted 10 LPA.
When you got 15 LPA, You wanted 30 LPA.
When you got 40 LPA CTC, you wanted 40 LPA Fixed.
When you got 50 LPA fixed, You wanted to build a startup.
When you got successful in that, you wanted early retirement.
When you retired early, you wanted unlimited passive income.
When you got everything you ever wanted, You wanted time to enjoy it.
Hence, time is your most valuable asset and it cannot be equated with your earnings. Enjoy your 20s and 30s by both working hard and playing hard. Feel the satisfaction of hitting milestones. The finish line is not really important.
Achieve your own goals ( Not society’s expectations ). You don’t need to prove anything to anyone but yourself.
Nobody is measuring you, they are busy in their lives. You are the only opponent to yourself in this battle.
Running towards the next fulfillment will never be able to find peace in life. It will only lead us distant away from what we’re hoping to feel.
The only way to win the race of life is to realize that, there is no race.
Winning has to be from within us. We need to find happiness within ourselves. True satisfaction can only be observed from inside.
Life is not a race or competition. It’s a journey. Don’t just run after aiming at the finishing line, rather enjoy the ride.
