Balancing your life : Best of everything for success and happiness!
What are the qualitites of successful people? Success in career is one thing but we also need to have success in our relationships to lead a complete life. Have you seen anybody who is a success in whatever he does? Success in every moment is more fruitful than one major success. When you have a habit to be successful then why would one like to fail in maintaining relationships?
Success and failures are part's and parcel's of life. Actually people don't fail. It's just they did not get the desired output. In life nobody fails. Success and failures are labels we put on things to get the desired results. But sometimes your failure can save you from many illeffects of success. Yes, success have ill effects too. Everything in life comes in a package. You have to accept both negative and positive aspects. It is impossible that one person will have only negative aspect's and the other only positive. So we should have best of both - positive and negative. Successful people are those who accept success and failure as these things doesn't matter to them.
You might be outstanding in one thing and you may be miserable in another. In life to be happy we need to be atleast average in important things of life. The three pillars that one should concentrate is :
- Self : We should be first happy. People think wealth, people, success gives them happiness. But the fact is success comes to happy people. So we need to be happy first to enjoy success. Happiness comes when you accept whatever that is happening in that moment. "Present moment awareness" is the key to happiness.
- Family : Success comes when you have excellent relationships within the family. Infact "Life" is relationships. Imagine where would you be if you didn't have relationships? You were born out from relationships. To maintain good relationships you need to experience people as they are. "No judging". You have to remember that each individual is a robot and is programmed to do particular tasks based on education and conditioning of mind. So if u accept people as they are you also start accepting yourself as you are. This will give you joy.
- Society : Human beings are social animals. We need to socialise for our survival. Socialising doesn't mean to have to do what the society demands from you. But you have to act in your own unique way through which you make changes and improve the society. To succeed in a society we need values. People with ethical values always are valued more and respected in a civilized society.
You need to have a balance in all the three to be a complete human being. You don't need to be outstanding in any one field but being average in all three is better. Do simple things that give you success. Each success in each three field gives a huge success later. Se we need a balance of life, Best efforts put in all the three!
