I will share 2 IDEAS/MANTRAS which I got to know from reading a ton of books and watching Youtube videos. These 2 mantras were the most common and recurring !!!
These 2 ideas will answer the question “How to be successful in life”?
Most of you must be knowing about these 2 ideas, but you may have never give a thought overt it. Now is the time to reflect and find meaning !!
I won’t be giving you quick tips , rather I will endeavor to explain you the principles which will be the foundation for your actions,as
WHEN YOU KNOW THE BASIC PRINCIPLES, EVERYTHING GETS EASY.
Understanding the basics will provide you a good foundation.
WHAT IS A SUCCESSFUL LIVING?
It varies from person to person. But the underlying soul of plethora of definitions of ‘successful life’ is that
You are happy with what you are doing. You can feel that inner sense of happiness.
A successful life is spending time with your loved ones, living with purpose and spreading love . These 2 principles will help you to accomplish it.
THE 2 MANTRAS : THE KEY TO SUCCESS IN LIFE
FIRST MANTRA: LIFE IS SHORT !!!
Yeah ,Life is short. Do you agree with that??? Let me tell you, its fucking true.We think we have a lot of time, and its a misconception.
Let me tell you some numbers .
An average Human live 960 months . In other words its like 28,000 days.
When we think it in terms of age , our life looks big, But when we think in terms of months and days it looks small. isn’t it?
Think about your life. Don’t you think how fast time is passing by. Think about it . Think about the goals that you want to achieve.
We think we have a lot of time to achieve our goals, but its an illusion. This illusion is a mirage which emanates procrastination in us.
Think about the last time you procrastinated. I am sure it was due to your belief that you have enough time for it. That’s how you will keep delaying , and one day you will realize that time has passed by.
HOW TO USE THIS MANTRA
Doesn’t matter if you agree or disagree that Life is short, You can use this principle to help you make better choices in life . And when you make better , you get closer to success.
Remind yourself every day that life is short , And I will use every day to improve myself in all respects of life.
When you realize that , boy, i don’t have much time , You start using your time wisely. You will waste your time and energy to most important people and goals of yours.
You will see the difference in yourself when you will think about this. Think Now!!
DO ME A FAVOR
From today onwards, every day, you will reflect at least on your life. You will do it in the morning , while you are working (just take a 5 min break, and just do it i.e THINK) and before you sleep.
You will think about your goals , ponder upon how your day is going and what are your plans. You will ponder whether you spend enough time with your family /friends?
Does this exercise sounds a lot of work?? TRY THIS OUT , YOU will realize its soo good. TRUST ME.
UMMM. BUT THINKING ABOUT DEATH IS BAD , NA!! WHAT IF I DIE, AS I WILL BE PONDERING UPON DEATH ?LAW OF ATTRACTION WILL ATTRACT DEATH TOWARDS ME!!
I had this question. WHAT ABOUT YOU??
See, We are reminding ourselves of our death by realizing that our life is short.But we are using it for a good purpose.
We will make better choices, and will adopt good habit , thereby improving ourselves in all aspects . Hence we will become much healthier.
Hence we will end up living more years and moreover our life will be full of joy and bliss.
SECOND MANTRA : YOU DON’T KNOW SHIT!!!
Sounds rude, right? But I can say proudly that ‘I DON’T KNOW SHIT’. Why am I proud to say that?
See, right now I am in a much better position in most aspects of my life as compared to 9 months before. But I don’t need to be arrogant about it.
its a ongoing journey and I have so much to learn In life , so much to experience and I realize, boy, there’s a lot to learn even though I know a lot of shit.
I keep reminding myself that ‘I DON’T KNOW SHIT’. This mental attitude just helps me to be humble . This mentality makes me hungry for success, it slaps me in the face , telling me to do work.
YOU MIGHT SAY NOW “BUT I KNOW SOME SHIT”
Yeah, I agree . This mentality doesn’t undermines your capability.
Rather, this will help you to realize that there’s so much work still to do.
This mantra won’t let you fly or evade from the reality and will always inspire you to be a lifelong learner.
YOU WILL NEVER BE PREFECT
Does this seem true to you? SORRY, ITS TRUE.
We can never be always correct/ perfect in our life. We always go from being wrong to less wrong and this process is an endless loop.
This gives us a chance to improve ourselves .Does this chance of improving yourself bring a smile on your face?
If you smile when seeing a chance for improvement , this indicates you love doing work. You love the’ struggle ‘to become great at work.
Without struggle, no one has got success. Embracing struggle is key to succeed.
