Life without an aim is considered the life without a proper direction. It’s like a ship floating aimlessly in the vast ocean. Have you, even once, ever thought of your objectives of life? If you want to truly live life, to really experience it, to enjoy it to the fullest, instead of barely scraping by and only living a life of existence, then you need to find ways to break free from the mold and drink from life. Majority of us in today’s busy schedules rarely have time to focus on what can truly bring us greater clarity and therefore greater meaning to our lives. We most often get caught up living our lives on automatic pilot and end up working extremely hard on just existing rather than consciously living. The difference between an existence and a full life is involvement.
Most of the people on this planet are existing, they are not living. They are existing because they are not dying. You have seen the train and the bogies. And if you ask me why the bogies are moving, I’ll tell you because they can’t help it, because they just have to move. People come on this planet and die as ordinary people, that’s all. And they blame the situation for what they are in. Life is meant to be lived – and very few of us actually live life to its potential. Most of us live a dark shadow of what our life could be – in fact, most of us don’t even consider what our lives could be.
How can we live an ordinary life in an extraordinary manner? I ardently believe a person, when he comes in this planet, has a choice, either live life enthusiastically, wholeheartedly with positive, mental attitude or give up, saying that I cannot do, because my situation is always unfavourable to me, because I am either the eldest, or the middle or the youngest son in the family.
But then situations are always unfavourable. And it is you who can turn them into favourable ones. As once Helen Keller beautifully said, “Life is either a daring adventure or nothing.” But how many of us are truly ready to explore our potential? No, not very many of us; And this is the biggest problem all over the world which is, in fact an attitudinal problem.
To be a victim to outside circumstances is to EXIST, but to be influenced by the internal is to LIVE.
