Let’s keep things simple today.
I have an awesome video clip for you to watch.
Being rich makes me poor- Anonymous
One day, when you’re wealthy, you have all the money in the world, and there is absolutely not a single thing you have to worry about in your life, life is gonna SUCK.
A life without a challenge is a boring life.
When there are no challenges, there is no growth.
When there is no growth, there is no innovation.
When there is no innovation, minds die.
When minds die, humanity dies.
Most people go about living their lives the wrong way. They live their lives from the outside-in.
They feel that external luxuries will satisfy inner turmoil.
Only the wisest of the wise flip the scenario.
They realize that their external world is only a reflection of their inner sanctuary.
We do not see things as they are, we see things as we are.- The Talmud
Stop blaming external forces for internal pains. And, don’t try to plug the hole in your soul up with external luxuries.
Here is the secret to bliss:
Figure out your life’s purpose.
Almost nobody does this, because it’s the hardest thing in the universe to find out.
Maybe I’ll teach you one day. =)
But, don’t wait for me.
Figure this out for yourself, because you need to know the answer.
Until you exist for a reason, until you know why your soul exists, you’re going to constantly be playing Goldilocks; however, there won’t be any middle ground where everything is hunky dory.
Trying to buy satisfaction is like rearranging deck chairs on the Titanic.
Your vision will become clear only when you look into your heart. Who looks outside, dreams. Who looks inside, awakens.– Carl Jung
You can’t control everything, so stop trying.
You can’t fix every situation.
You can’t change people.
All you can control is how you react to things.
All you can control is your mind.
And the mind. . .is everything.
It is where we dream.
It is where we translate the feelings of our hearts into emotions.
It is where we live.
Sometimes, the best thing to do is to let go and swim with the current.
Stop struggling with life, and start searching for inner meaning.
All that we are is the result of what we have thought. If a man speaks or acts with an evil thought, pain follows him. If a man speaks or acts with a pure thought, happiness follows him, like a shadow that never leaves him. – The Buddha
Be thankful for what you have.
Sometimes, all the riches in the world will make you feel poor.
When there is too much abundance, we lose our creativity.
Remember these words when you make it far in life.
And when you’re struggling along the way, don’t lose hope.
In life, all one has to do is dream- don’t let go of these.
The rest is taken care of.
