Do we have to win gold, silver, or bronze, in order to be winners in life?
Do we have to show our medals just to say, we have been winners and a success in our lives?
NO. Success in life cannot be measured only by medals and awards. The greatest achievement is even graver than that. The greatest achievement is to come to the point of loving God with all our heart, mind, and entire being. In this way, we already achieved real happiness, real love, and real shelter.
Our happiness, love, and shelter should not be based on material things. Soon, these things will be gone. Beauty, intelligence, fame, relationships will soon be gone, and all these things can never help us when death comes. The greatest achievement is to not become afraid at the time of death by having a deep core relationship with God. Because in the real sense, only God can help us at the time of death.
If success is based on medals or awards, people will not become satisfied with it completely. These things will also not help help us at the time of death. Everyone will not come to know your awards, and you yourself will have to forget it either come old age. We should be putting our focus on developing our spiritual advancement--relationship with God. Because only spiritual things is permanent. This will never fade. It will not cease to exist. Matter is bound to get torn apart and decay. If our happiness is based on material things, expect that this happiness will only live for a fleeting moment. Today you're happy. After some time, this happiness will soon fade. But if our happiness is based on spiritual things, our happiness will live forever... and this kind of happiness is what we've always been searching for all of our lives. Our happiness, love, and shelter should be in relationship with God. This is real achievement. This is real success.
I believe that winning is an attitude, rather than a result. We humans generally attribute success to some form of gain, yet in reality I believe success to be ideal in action, a constant and unyielding want for truth and knowledge by experience. As the platitude says 'Its all about the journey'.
I agree and what a great answer. You are gifted and so deserving.
Nope, athough there are a pathetic bunch of people around who need 'medals' of some sort to massage their inflated egos, or as an invitation to others to do the massaging.
