Instead of muddling over your past,take a renewed step towards future.
One can always use cheap tricks to drag others down and make themselves look superior.But what good will that do? You will betray your own chance of being excellent by eliminating fierce competition and advancement towards growth.
Parenting is not about shaping the child.It is more about creating an environment in which the child shapes itself.
So you don’t get to choose what the child should do or shouldn’t do.You just lay down the ground rules and let the child decide the path it wants to take.
You can teach your child what’s good or bad,what’s desirable or undesirable,what’s right or wrong BUT don’t tell them that this is an absolute reality in which they have to live.
True freedom just doesn’t come from the right to choose.One should also have the knowledge about their choices because then only they can think as a person in their own right and choose the path they want to follow.
This may sound like it’s only possible for the privileged but not really.Living in an environment deprived of choices is a downside but it allows one to create opportunities for oneself.It’s a refreshing experience in itself.
When you can afford things,you get to choose.When you can’t afford something you get the opportunity to create.People don’t create inventions because they don’t need them.They create them because they feel their lives are lacking something and add meaning to it.
Not having something is not necessarily a disadvantage.It is an opportunity to create something with your own hands.On the other hand,having almost everything gives us an opportunity to explore more and learn to create.
Don’t compare yourself to the people in the past.They are way back in time and our job is to walk forward.And only way we can do that is when we try new ideas.Repeating and following the old ones will just bring us up to the present,not take us into the future.
Life is about pluses and minuses.As long as you have even one more plus than minus,you win.
P.S. Concerning yourself with other people’s pluses and minuses is a sort of minus in itself.Worrying about why others have it all rather than building your own stuff is a real downside.
It’s futile to think that everyone should grow up a the same pace.
Some people run fast,some run slow.
Some take risks,some make careful decisions.
Some are certain,some are uncertain.
Trying to take away someone uniqueness for the sake of generality. Please.We are not plants.
Knowledge doesn’t take you far.Only risks do.
The future’s not set in stone.How your goals can be? Your ambition needs to be flexible,not replaceable,to adapt to the future.You replace,you start from the scratch.But when you flex – you grow,you change,you modify,you become better.
Flexibility is strength showing potential for change,and not a weakness showing submission.
Acknowledging differences between people is good.But discriminating is not.Discrimination shows up when we label those differences as superior or inferior.Everyone is different because one person can’t do everything.We fill in for each other where the other cannot.It is about teamwork.How can you discriminate against someone who’s on your team?
You can’t drag someone down without lowering yourself below them.You can’t kick someone down from above without stopping at your own path of growth.If it’s their loss,then it is also you own.That’s what happens in a team.
