The definition “life” is what we experience between the period after birth and before death in this universe. Living things have their own “life”. Living things constitute plants, animals, and human beings. These three things are connected with each other’s life but have different laws of nature. Plants are living beings but they can neither move nor communicate but play a vital role in the life of humans. Animals also have their own lives; there are different kinds of animals: some of them are herbivores, carnivores, and some are omnivorous too. But they play a main position in cosmos as well as in the human life. “Life” is a short word but has a big meaning to it. No one has a perfect definition for life. Many scholars, writers, poets have written articles and poems about “life”. Each human life has its own experience. Some experiences are good and some are not.
“Life is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance, you must keep moving,” says Albert Einstein.
Life is too short. Human beings want to live a happy life. While some of them are not able to reach their destination, some of them are able to achieve their goals and live a happy life. Whatever it is, we have to learn how to balance life.
To live a successful life, it requires love, motivation, reward, inspiration, and support. These are like medicines which helps to stay positive in life. Love makes life worth living. A life without these things is meaningless, empty, and worthless. Inspiration could come from parents, siblings, relatives, friends, your lover or partner, as well as the people that surround you (neighbors or community). Life can be very hard and difficult to go through but with support or motivation will stop the pain. If you get success in life or are able to reach your destination that is, in my opinion, a great achievement and proves that you have learned to balance life.
Behind a successful life there is hard work, determination, dedication, integrity, confidence, and positive thinking attitude. There is clear road map of life. Which is why today they have reached their destination. If you want to see success in life, you should be honest to yourself and all success begins with self-discipline.
If you think you are a loser, you are heading in a negative path. “Nothing is impossible, the word itself says, ‘I’m possible!’” Said Audrey Hepburn. It means that you have brains, feet, and hands that you can use to guide yourself and you are the owner of your life. YOU are the one who will decide where to go and what to do. Never think that you cannot do anything; think positive, act positively but do not expect anything. When you begin to fulfill your responsibilities with integrity, you will definitely begin believe in yourself. If you do not have a proper vision in your life and are confused with your destination, just close your eyes and follow your passion. Whatever makes you happy, do it? You like to be a singer? A businessman? An actor? A good writer? Whatever it is lately, chase your passion. I know you will definitely identify your vision of life as well as reach your goals. If you think it’s too late to set goals, trust me, you are never too old for new dreams. So, let’s start to dream. As A.P.J.Abdul Kalam has said, dreams aren’t those that come when you sleep, they are the ones that don’t let you sleep. If you love your work, you will reach your goals soon.
If you want to be successful in life, it does not matter who you are and what your background is, but what is important to know that success is not achieved in a day. It comes from making efforts every day and getting little better than the previous day. If you are not confident about winning, at first it seems impossible. Then you seem doubt the impossible and then you realize soon that it is inevitable. You will never change your life until you change something in your daily routine. The four things for success are work, pray, think, and belief. It does not matter what others are doing but it does matter what you are doing. I would like to add this: work hard in silence and let success make the noise. Be silent, chase your dream and prove who you are. The secrets to becoming successful is to never ruin a good day by thinking its bad. There are five things which you need to remember everyday: I am amazing, positivity is a choice, I celebrate my individuality, I can do anything, and I am prepared to succeed.
Here, are some tips which can destroy the obstruction of norms created by the society. If you want to be a different person, first break out of your comfort zone, stop doing things you do not want to do, communicate clearly, stop pleasing people, say what you really mean, trust your instincts, never talk yourself down, follow your inspirations, do not be afraid to say “yes”, do not be afraid to say “no”, and be kind to yourself. Push yourself because no one is going to do it for you. No one can change your life; only you can do it and you can make it. If you fail, never lose hope, be positive, and learn to motivate yourself. On this note, I am reminded of Henry Ford who quoted that “Failure is the opportunity to begin again more indigently.”
Believe in yourself. You can do anything and you have to do it now. Learn to appreciate what you have first. Miracles don’t happen; you have to struggle and work hard and learn to grab opportunities. Whatever your circumstances are, learn to stay focused on your goals. Never lose hope. Try again and again but never give up. If you want to do something in life, firstly you have to dream and then act on it. You got to run after your destination. You have to build up confidence. Breakdown your goals into many pieces and act on the smaller steps first. Remove the word “procrastination” from life, follow “do it now” and love “isolation”. These are gifts to be strong and an opportunity to “recycle yourself”.
Nobody knows what is inside of you. Only you can recognize what you can accomplish. “Think big” with “big vision.” When you work really hard, it is possible to change the impossible into possible. Never be afraid of rejection. Excellence takes times and achievement takes passion. If you want success, think differently than an ordinary person. Discipline is one of the qualities that is required for success along with the right mindset. Mind controls the body but body never controls the mind. So, always control the mind through meditation.
If you are finding it difficult to find direction, identify your passion and chase it. You have to fight; winner’s win and loser’s lose. You are going to win with own will power. Break out of your comfort zone, love to work hard, and be a responsible person. You are the master of your own destination; do what makes you stronger. “Hard work” is the dear friend of our life which will help you achieve. The key words to get success in life are “Do not give up”, “persistence” and “courage.” You have to stick to these words. These words are like a medicine to get success. The famous business philosopher Jim Rohn once said, “Discipline is the bridge between goals and accomplishment.”
billionaires or beggars, black or white, older or younger, they all have the same 24 hours. So, you are the decision maker of your life. You have to act on your passion or inner drive. Let’s begin from this quotation “Dream big, think big and start small”. Why is that most people are unable to reach their goals while 2 to 3% really achieve a high level of success? The people who take small steps on every single day who achieved their goals and dreams. Everybody on this planet has a gift. It is your job to figure out what the gift is. Then it becomes your job to decide whether you are going to use it or not. Winners are not people who never fail but people’s level of success is determined by the level of discipline and perseverance.
There are three things that people who wish to become successful must keep in mind: a steady interest to improve yourself, developing passion for learning and knowing that improving yourself begins right where you are. When you start chasing your passion, you will then find the destiny of your life. In this universe, every human being is unique; therefore you are definitely different from others. You should work hard, improve yourself and prove who you are and what you are. It is extremely important to have a proper road-map to reach your goals; without this it is not possible to achieve. Sometimes, things may not happen the way you want it. Nevertheless, it is important to stay focused on what you want. You can become whatever you desire to be but you have to be determined.
Behind the success of every person there is hard work, determination, integrity, and self-discipline. We can take the example of Stephen King’s inspirational success story. King is recognized as one of the most famous and successful horror writers of all times. Most people know Stephen King the famous writer but few know about his life story. Stephen’s first novel was rejected almost everywhere it was submitted. He threw it in the garbage. His wife got the story out of the garbage and insisted that he submits it again. In the end, he became the Stephen King. There is a very important lesson from this inspirational success story which is that rejection should make no sense at all if you believe in yourself. Thomas Edison’s success story is one of the stories that can motivate anyone after experiencing failure. Thomas failed about 999 times to invent the lamp before he succeed in doing it on the 1000th attempt. Thomas Edison’s success story should make you conclude that failure should never stop you even if it occurred more than once and Oprah Winfrey’s is one of the inspirational success stories that really motivated me when I read it the first time. She has worked very hard and struggled to get success in life but she never give up on life. She was rejected for TV earlier in her life; these days she is one of the most popular TV icons and one of the richest women on the planet.
Life is too short to begin with broken pieces of yesterday. It will destroy the wonderful today and ruin the great tomorrow. Life is unstable; neither is it always fun nor always sad. It is also unpredictable sometimes; we lose jobs, relationships and reputation. We sometimes would like to change job but unable to. It has happened that we are unable to identify ourselves and purpose of life. This can lead to human beings facing failure in life and reputation in the society is also decreased. If you face varieties of difficulties and pain in life. They do not come to destroy you but to help you realize hidden talents and learn to be strong. Success does not come searching; you have to find and get it. Dream and dedication are powerful keywords to live a successful life.
“To be successful you must accept all challenges that come your way. You cannot just accept the ones you like.” – Mike Gafka.
