“You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream.” ~ C. S. Lewis; British novelist, poet, academic, medievalist, literary critic, essayist, lay theologian, broadcaster, lecturer, and Christian apologist.
“Success consists of going from failure to failure without loss of enthusiasm.” ~ Winston Churchill; British statesman, army officer, and writer.
People allow themselves to be so overwhelmed by their failed attempts, and also many times people compare their successes or failures to other people’s; thus, missing the focus in their own path, missing the opportunities they could see if they let themselves stop comparing and judging in their minds.
If they were wiser, then they would experience bliss in their own journey; and when you experience bliss, true bliss, in your own journey, then, there is no time or wish to compare yourself or your efforts with somebody else’s. Like this, the sky looks bluer than ever before to you.
We are here to experience and learn, not to wallow in misery and waste time and effort measuring our progress with that of others; and in the same sense, we are not here to give up because the challenge seems too big or too rough for us. If you feel tired or exhausted, then take a break, gather yourself and your thoughts, look into your heart, and keep going.
The reality is that there is no failure in life, but there is the illusion your mind creates of failure. And so, it is wise to understand this, if it is about your life’s progress; because there should be nothing more important to you than your own life’s progress–spiritual, mental, and financial. If you do not have your own experience of progress, how can you guide others to their own progress…??
Life is about leading and helping others with your own example, not just with your kind words (this is the stupid nonsense most idiots are about, and that is why 90% of the world’s minds are mediocre and pitiful).
