There has been lot of motivational quotes and youtube videos out there.
Sometimes I wonder whether they serve any purpose.
Motivation is a complex term.
And quite temporary too.
There’s a question i ask you?
Have you ever imagined the type of person you want to be?
But, have you created that type of personality in you.
If yes, then there’s no need to read the following paragraphs. 😛
You can read.
Well the problem in creating yourself arises due to your past habits.
We all now.
That habits play an important role and they are very deep.
My post on samskaras will help you know the importance of habits.
How to know which habits support your goal and others don’t?
Have a mission in life.
Maybe that can be helping others, loving someone, personal excellence or whatever you like.
It can be anything.
But, yes be comfortable with it.
It shouldn’t be made out of impulses or society dictating you.
So now you have figured out your mission.
Now, how will you attain that mission?
Quite simple again.
By inculcating the habits which are in tandem with it.
Here’s an example.
There’s a guy who says he wants to win Olympics gold medal in swimming.
What would you or anybody suggest?
To swim daily.
To keep improving in it.
Keep in mind that your mission is like a trunk of the tree and its branches are the ways you can achieve
If your aim is for personal excellence(trunk) .
Then there are various ways like sports, dance, studies or maybe acting. (like branches)
Choose any one branch.
It’s like jumping on a tree, where you choose a branch wisely.
So that it doesn’t break.
It’s like that only.
Choose something that you love.
Now you have got the path also.
The more obsessed you are with your the habits.
The better you will get.
Here comes the best thing to do.
Whenever there’s a thought in mind that says you do something else which is not related to your purpose.
Ask a question.
Will it serve my purpose?
If yes. Go for it.
If no. Reject it as a poison.
Hanging out with people who don’t share similar life values .
Watching TV series which are useless.
You should be merciless.
And you should be merciless in your work also.
Keep on practicing.
Keep on improving.
But only in the those habits which support your goal.
Do have few things only. (there’s a post on few things also, Do read it)
Don’t aspire everything.
Just few habits.
I know emotions, societal backbitching, physical pain, laziness.
Everything will be there.
As i said preserve.
And reject everything as a poison.
And one day you would realize you have become the man or woman that you will always wanted to be.
Go. Create Yourself.
