Is there anything more dangerous than dissatisfied and irresponsible human beings who don’t know what they want?
One of the most common incompetence of the today’s world is lack of setting a life goal and working to achieve it. Many people lack of the understanding of how to do it, and do not seek the knowledge. They don’t know that they don’t know. This state can be referred to as unconscious inadequacy. Suppose, however, something happens in their life. They meet people. They read a book. They develop a friendship with someone who knows how to do it. They become aware that they have a need for setting a life goal. But they still lack the knowledge and skill to do the work.
I think life is essentially based on love. Whatever we are doing in this life is just because we want to be loved. Everything people struggle for: money, power, character, popularity, dignity is all because we want to be loved. Chasing love gives you the inspiration to move on in life. To me, family is everything. Religion also plays a key role in order to understand the meaning of life. When things get though in life, take them as hard tests and move on.
You have to fight when you feel defeated. When you feel failed, and when you feel your life is crumbled. A reporter once asked Muhammad Ali how many sit-ups he does every day. He responded, “I don’t count my sit-ups, I only start counting when it starts hurting, when I feel pain, cause that’s when it really matters.” The same applies to success in life. You always have two choices when things begin to get tough: you can either overcome an obstacle and grow in the process or let it beat you. Humans are creatures of habit. If you quit when things get tough, it gets that much easier to quit the next time. On the other hand, if you force yourself to push through a challenge, the strength begins to grow in you. Your challenge is to find those souls, and look for ways to guide them towards being masters of your own destiny.
