Our ancestors weren’t wrong per se.They were just outdated.Whatever conclusions they drew about the world came from their observations and their observations were again dependent on the tools they used.I don’t need to emphasise the difference between a horse and bike to demonstrate the variance.Every new day we update ourselves and each other with new knowledge and experiences.This has been the tradition so far and will carry on for years to come.Whatever answers we think are right,wrong or neutral (even not answered at all) are that way because we haven’t developed the methods and instruments to help us reach the final answer.
As we become an adult,logic becomes a norm and creativity something unique.As a child it is the other way round.To us some of their endeavour may seem fruitless,but what they do all the time is completely new to them,and that’s important.They don’t hesitate to try because they don’t understand the cost that risk bears.Who do you think is more vulnerable? Us or a baby? Of course,the latter.Our mental faculty helps us to assess and averse the risk but not take it head on because we are afraid of the consequences.We have more tools that a kid does to get ourselves back on the track,yet they are the ones taking more risks than us.We understand our risks and have a greater ability to deal with them yet we take a step back.It doesn’t seem that we just evolve from childhood to late adulthood but more like evolve-devolve,for both good and bad.
Don’t think twice.You already invested a lot of time when you were thinking the first time.The second time will just exhaust your mental faculty and make yourself doubt you.Not to say you don’t need to proofread.And not to say haste cannot be a waste.If you made a decision first time with every resource available,then that was the best decision.Our resources keep on improving so it may feel like you made a wrong decision when in fact you made the best decisions under the given situation.It’s the doubt in you that kills future creativity.Doubt things around you to update your thinking.
Eating healthy food leads to good physical health and absorbing healthy thoughts leads to good mental health.In the first case,the farmers work hard to reap a good harvest for you.You give them back the fruits of their effort through your own skills and resources.There’s an exchange to promote well-being of all.It works the same for mental health.You can benefit those around you by sending out vibes of positivity for them to absorb.And they will give back the fruits of your endeavor with optimism as well.Again an exchange to promote well-being of all.
Exercise is for relaxation not exhaustion.
Your data may not be wrong,but the model could be.Your sensations could be in perfect sync but your perception may not be so.We really like to question others,but what do we do when it comes to us? Do we object to our own decisions? Do we question our own strengths and weaknesses? Do we try to become our own worst critic? It’s one thing to be skeptical about the external world,and another to be skeptical about our own.We tend to see what path others are taking,and during the process lose our own.Sometimes we should take a moment to see the chaos within us and feel the randomness that even exceeds the entropy of the universe.
Failure exists to remind you to not ease into success.You experience failure only when you are doing well.It wouldn’t feel like a failure if you were already a failure.Everyone of us is successful in our own way – economically,socially,spiritually,aesthetically,politically,religiously and so on.Failure doesn’t prove that you are a failure.It just proves you failed this time and there’re always new things to try out.Failure is the only way you will enrich your life to maximum potential.If you don’t go through the worst you won’t appreciate the best.Instead of criticizing failure – thank it – to not let you soar up high in the skies and only to forget what lies below it.
I have learned more from my mistakes and that of the others than any other sources of learning and teaching.Doing something the wrong way sometimes sets us on the right way.When we understand what is bad and harmful,we pick out and implement what is good and virtuous.That’s why our evil past and deeds shouldn’t be hidden.They should serve as a reminder of our atrocities and downfalls to teach the future the value of peace and freedom they hold.To teach them greed and divisions will just harm oneself and we should all strive for unity and love.Acceptance is the key not ignorance.Because ignorance of both the good and bad has its own dire consequences.It is only sensible to teach the future generations about our mistakes so that they don’t go through what we have gone through again.Allow them to learn,make their own mistakes,learn again and pass on all the combined knowledge and experience to repeat the cycle.Our failure today will set the path to success tomorrow.
Failure is not a bad thing.Failure makes you hungry.Failure motivates you to achieve high goals by breaking the barriers of highest records.That’s how new records are made right? You won’t work towards something unless driven by motivation.And the more you are beat down,the more motivated you need to become in order to achieve your dream.This can backfire though.Experiencing downfall over and over again can crush one’s willpower.They may not want to get up again because suffering feels more easier than trying.It feels easier to let go than to go on.But you need to remember that you hold the trigger.Whether your attempts fire ahead towards the goal or backfire on you – depends on you.You invented the weapon i.e. your plan.You need to find the right way to execute it.Trial and error will bring either of the two options – either failure or success.Just because you are facing failure over and over doesn’t mean you are taking a step back.In fact,every time you try a new approach you increase your chances of success.The more you try,the more miniscule your failure becomes,bringing you closer to your goal.It’s simple math logically.But a harsh reality.And that is the making of a beautiful future.
The next generation will always surpass the previous generation (isn’t that the point of evolution)? But how much better they become than us depends on us.A tiny fraction or a vast mile.Place yourself in their shoes and ask yourself “Do I wish that my previous generation worked hard more or put in more energy to bring me more knowledge and more happiness in life? To make world a better place for all for good?” I certainly feel that way.Do you?
