If we want to see success in our lives, we must intentionally work towards what we’re purposed to do. We cannot get distracted by anything outside of our purpose or compromise our creativity, vision, or convictions because we believe that we’ll obtain more success or get more recognition or praise through our change in direction.
It doesn’t work like that. Because success is connected to purpose, not trends of popularity.
One of the definitions of success is “the accomplishment of one’s goals”. We have to keep OUR GOALS in front of us, not someone else’s. So, stay on track. Believe in yourself and your purpose. Trust that as you stay faithful to what you know you ought to be doing, you will experience astronomical success that will leave you with a sense of fulfillment and will impact the world around you. (Not my words.)
Sometimes my white friends want to know to whom i am saying “RAM RAM” over phone instead of starting a conversation with a simple HELLO!! Today is the right day to answer this. This has something to do with my values, upbringing, religion, morals, childhood & my grandpa’s bedtime stories because my both parents were working. I am not a strong believer in religion the way people portray now a days. But i believe in your beliefs. I believe there’s GOD, a positive divine power guiding us from somewhere. If you are productive, truthful, consistent with what you do from a clean heart, kind or humble towards other human, all of these acts are filled with godly goodness. I am born Hindu, and i believe i am a practicing Hindu. My religion teaches there are multiple forms of GOD, and there are multiple pathways to heaven, so all religions must be treated with equal amounts of respect & acceptance.
Let’s get back to my answer. Before some thousands of years there used to be a King named “Lord Ram”, incarnation of god significant to Hinduism. Some circumstances forced him to stay away from his family & palace. He lived in forest for 14 years like a normal human leaving his royalty aside. During those 14 years, he fought some demons, saved his wife & kingdom after killing a 10 headed monster named Ravan. Those 10 heads represent lust, anger, delusion, greed, pride, envy, mind, intellect, will and the ego. Ravan is the example how certain negative traits can downsize good qualities & the world remembers him as a MONSTER today. Today is the date “LORD RAM” killed Ravan & “godess DURGA” killed mahishasur, this day symbolises victory of good over evil & we celebrate it as DUSSEHRA. HAPPY DUSSEHRA TO EVERYONE WHETHER YOU ARE CELEBRATING OR NOT.
After killing Ravan, Lord Ram returned back to rule his kingdom. Under his kingdom, there was no place for any criminal or derogatory behaviour. He established a standard for men to be truthful, faithful, kind, loyal & brave. Till the day he ruled, every human being enjoyed equal amounts of respect & happiness. So when a Hindu says “RAM RAM”, Ram is the goodness/god inside you/your soul. One Ram is for you & other one for me. The meaning behind it is; “WE ARE EXCHANGING EQUAL AMOUNTS OF RESPECT AS HUMANS WITH A HOPE TO SEE A WORLD LIKE LORD RAM’S KINGDOM WHERE EVERYONE IS HAPPY & TREATED EQUALLY”.
We’ve been infected with this idea that LOVE is an emotion only felt between two people. But love is universal. It’s an energy, a contagious force, a beautiful gift.
To offer money to a homeless man is to love. To smile at a stranger is love. To be grateful, to be hopeful, to be consistent, to be faithful, to be truthful, to be considerate, to be brave, to be forgiving, to be proud of yourself, is also to LOVE.
First have a lust towards a beautiful life. I am talking about your OWN LIFE. Never obsess about chasing love. Chase goals. Chase dreams. Chase the behaviors that are going to make you better.
You don’t chase love; you allow that to find you by accident, and when it finds you on accident, you’ll know that is was supposed to find you PURPOSEFULLY.
(This paragraph got nothing to do with the post above. It’s my movie review for FREEGUY. Watched in ODEON IMAX, the movie & experience both were amazing. One of the best movie theater i visited so far. Friends said, it’s a great one time watch, but i will definitely watch it again. Don’t miss it. My friends also suggested it’s even better in 4DX 3D. The only part i didn’t like was my bestie DEMI ate 4 chocolate cupcakes, a litre of cold drinks & a whole large tub of popcorn like a hungry pig. I must agree, most girls who look good are some kinda sorcerers. It’s impossible to look fly while eating that much amount of garbage.)
