You are here in this world for three main reasons. The first one is to experience as many different things as possible and enjoy life to the full. The second one is to create, contribute, share, and leave a positive legacy behind.
And the third reason why you’re here on this planet is to improve, evolve, grow and become the best version of yourself.
Another day, another blog post and another story which might trail down to motivate you in some way or the other.
Before sleeping and after waking up, do ask this question to yourself that ‘what kind of person do you want to be?’
I mean everybody wants to be rich, wants to have a good lifestyle and most importantly ‘have it all’.
With time, I have noticed three ugly qualities that resist a human to become his/her best version and that is –
Having It All –
I have actually come across people who have a tendency of equating their success with ‘having it all’, but this can end up a slippery slope. The appetite for success develops into greed.
I have met many bloggers and influencers who were unhappy, negative people. It surprised me because It looked like they had it all. But deep down they hadn’t done the work of figuring out what kind of person they wanted to be.
Let me ask you the same question again, What kind of person do you want to be?
Living in a culture of entertainment and celebrities, a lot of people succumb to vanity. I mean we all want to look good, isn’t it?
Recently, I was just passing from a gym and saw a man with a good built, shaved legs and ripped. I don’t know but after having all that which we humans consider as ‘perfect’, I found that man to be very unhappy. You know what the problem is? We spend an enormous amount of time, energy and money in improving our looks and developing our character.
Becoming the best version of yourself is far away from just sculpted muscles, waxed chests and whitened teeth. It requires intellectual enrichment, empathy, sacrifice for others and the most important quality – Kindness!
All things in Moderation –
Perhaps, more than vanity and greed, addiction account for the grief in most people lives. The problem is that we like some things way too much. We pursue them at all costs and become addicted.
Living in a country like India where addictions are just accounted for drinking alcohol and sexual misbehaviour, there are so many other addictions out there which are neglected – Social media addiction, food addiction, addiction to drama, even healthy pursuits like fitness can become a destructive addiction.
Addictions can be treated. Simply ask yourself what kind of person you want to be? The answer will come to you and then what? Begin the process right away. You can always make changes and become the best version.
No matter who you’re, no matter what you did, no matter where you’ve come from, you can always change and become a better version of yourself!
That’s all for today. You can write me down on firstname.lastname@example.org or can easily connect with me on any of my social handles given in the right-hand sidebar.
Thank you for stopping by until the end.
Don’t forget to add value to others as they’ll come back when the time comes.
Have a great week, ahead!
See you in the next one!
