By nature, humans have got an outstanding surviving potential that they may climb hills and mountains of life and still persist; that they may confront the storms and lightening of life and dare not steer their ship to catch the breeze of popular favor; that they may take that which life dishes out to them and move on all in the hope that, someday, their efforts will pay off good and that their hearts and souls will come to rejoice and sigh in a tone of contentment when the sun they have always longed for shines upon them.
That’s just the theory. The real work lies in the practical aspect of it. The tragic part is that human has also unlimited power to despair when torture has reached its stunning peak. It leaves you chattered. Perhaps, you know what I mean.
These are thoughts I reckon will help when such times should come.
- Every Act Has Its Reward
Nothing in life seizes but changes. Hard times, and so do pleasure times, do not last forever – each come at the expense of the other. It is not a negative philosophy; it is nothing but the truth made by Nature for it is from them that you learn that you may grow into a fine and wise human, that you may, someday, look back at the ups and downs of your past life and those old times of your follies and acknowledge the fact that you have learned a great deal in those ugly days of uncertainty and lovely days of contentment.
Your effort will, one day, pay off good. Although it could seem untrue, but surely that day will quietly creep upon you that the work of your hands will get its due reward and your days of disappointments, bullies, embarrassment, pain and sufferings will present themselves before you in form of tears and there and then, you will wipe them off with joy and happiness.
“He who can not change the very fabric of his thought will never be able to change reality, and will never, therefore, make and progress.” – Anwar Sadart
You must, at first, move the mountains of your mind and hills of your thoughts if you will move any external mountain. A man that wants to change the world must at first change himself – his thoughts. People would want everything around them to change but them; they are ignorant of the fact that it is through the fabric of their thoughts that they attract from the outside that which they require to fulfill that which they concede in their minds; and same goes for you.
You have unlimited power to choose what it shall be if only you knew that with your mind, you can build a heavenly mount of peace of mind; and likewise do you have the power to build a life that wretchedly flourishes with pain and agony. Optimism can somewhat put your mind off today’s misfortune and set it on tomorrow’s fortune; thus you can smile once again like you’ve never been hurt.
- Quitting Has Never Been the Solution and Will Never Be
Whereon is such place as The Perfect Place? – Where critics have died away or gone underground and all that remain are folks to help you improve your intellect; where all would wish well of their neighbors and so do their neighbors unto them; where none would hold any grudge against others and all personalities will be respected and treated as such. Undoubtedly, such place isn’t on earth, if it does exist.
It is not the strongest that survives; it is the one that is most adaptable to change. You don’t, at all times, get things your way but what makes you a winner is the fact that you make the best of all circumstances. Critics and people with desire to go nowhere are of great existence in our world; and like many great successor before you, you can survive if you learn to move on. Keep your goal ahead of you that you may look up to it every time your hope sinks and ask yourself straight and sound: Is quitting the solution?
