Toiling

Toiling

Oozing happiness all the time may not be a feasible option. This fast pace world is a bit overwhelming on our daily shedules, but we are still happy doing our things even if we can't bear a smile over our face. We feel fulfilled after completing our chores. This mode could be satisfying, toiling through the day, not thinking about happiness or sadness. That is what I mean by 'Art of not giving a f*ck'.

Important Lessons

Important Lessons

1. Values can't control our bad values to follow.

2. Don't believe that you know anything with certainty, for it keeps you from improving.

3. Trying to leave a legacy might run your life.

Trying to not give a f*ck about most of the things is that you'll be able to give one about what really matters most to you in life.

Hold Values You Control

Hold Values You Control

Focus on things that you can control. See when people around you stay taking control of your life, you stop taking taking control of your little steps. Start taking small steps that you can control. They are intangible assets. With time they will compound which will make you shine among others. Choose values that you can control.

  • As a matter of fact think hard of values like punctuality and popularity. Can you control them??
  • Can you control values like honesty and kindness??

Certainty Hampers Growth

Certainty Hampers Growth

'When the cup is full nothing can be poured in it everything will be spilled over. So, to climb the ladder of knowledge you need to keep your cup empty.'

Rejecting the idea that you know anything will open you up for factual knowledge, scientific methodology and conceptual knowledge. This helps arriving at better decisions.

If you allow yourself a little doubt, you can disprove any limiting beliefs about yourself and others

Don't Obsess About Leaving A Legacy

Leaving a dent in the universe. Why?

Why we all strive to leave a legacy. Most of us are ruining our lives trying to chase this dream. We need to share our universe with our loved ones. Help others. Make commune. Gather like minded people around you. Let alone the legacy take care of itself.

The more we are driven to build a great body of work, the more we start chasing fame, working to much and focusing on future. What if, we start living in present enjoy our days while we a fully present here.

The Pursuit of Happiness makes you unhappy

The Pursuit of Happiness makes you unhappy

I pursued happiness like an addict pursues their next hit. I tried everything to try and be happy, but no matter what I tried, it didn’t make happy.

In fact, the opposite happened, it made me miserable.

I was pursuing happiness for the sake of it, there was no meaning behind my pursuit. I just wanted to be happy, but you can’t be happy simply by chasing it.

I think the best way to describe happiness is from this quote by Eleanor Roosevelt.

"Happiness is not a goal... It's a by-product of a weak or lived life."
