FROM GOOD TO BETTER, BETTER TO BEST
There were two students who were studying in the same school and were in the same class. They were good friends too. But, there lifestyles were completely different. One was born with a silver spoon. Living opulently, he almost had everything. The other one was grievously poverty stricken. His father somehow managed to pay his annual fees. But, his will to study and to paint a bright future for him and his family was far more than his hardships. He studied assiduously, focused om what he had, did his best and in the end, life rewarded him and he ended up living lavishly. The rich lad, however, was not content even though he had everything. He kept thinking what others had and he did not, like he had luxurious cars but he wanted a bicycle like others. He kept comparing and ended up living in depression.
What is the moral of the story? The grass always looks greener on the other side. No matter how rich you are, your wants are never satisfied. You are not content with what you have on your plate and thus you are not able to visualize what the things you have can do for you. What is meant for you will always be yours. Nobody will take that away from you. Stop comparing your lives with others. Instead focus on what you have right now in your life and what you can do with that. Do your best with whatever you have, wherever you are and He will ensure that you will get what you deserve. Your destiny will unfold itself. Your Karma will take you to your destination. First, it is important to learn to love yourself, your work, your behavior and everything about you. Fall in love with yourself. Only then you will be able to produce fantastic results in your life. When you won't take pride in what you do, how can you expect the world to appreciate your work.
Just thinking about how bad is life to you won't change anything. Life is like that for everyone. It puts people into difficulties to test them. But, there are some who despite being on a rocky road, make their way to the top with what they have and their are some who just cling to their problems, compare their life with others, curse it and do nothing."If a man is called to be a street sweeper, he should sweep streets even as a Michelangelo painted, or Beethoven composed music or Shakespeare wrote poetry. He should sweep streets so well that all the hosts of heaven and earth will pause to say,' Here lived a great street sweeper who did his job well.' " said Martin Luther King Jr.
Do your best. Never leave hope. Always see yourself becoming better than who you are today. Love what you are doing and then even the forces of nature will cooperate to make you superior.
