As we end this month of November, allow me to share with you some insights into these thoughts to ponder which I believe have significant impact on our lives. Everyday we learn from our experiences and interactions with people and things. One good thing in life though that these are free and available everywhere but sad to note that many among us fail to fulfil this task due to our other concerns.
Anyone, here are points to ponder and my reflections on them:
" There's no sense aiming for a goal with no arrow in your bow."
Goals are pertinent in our life yet we also need to equip ourselves with the necessary tools and resources so as to reach them. As mentioned beforehand, our everyday learnings allow us to grow better as a person and through this, our readiness to face the future squarely is attainable. Hindrances will come along the way but if we are determined enough to attain our goals, then we are also ready to face both yin and yang of life.
"The surest way to gain respect is to earn it by conduct."
Much agreeable to me and I believe it is related to what they say that love begets love thus if we sow beautiful things to others then we can also expect to receive similar things on the process. If we treat others with dignity and honour then surely others will also endow us those two.
"It's not the load that breaks you down, it's the way you carry it."
What is essential to this point is that we must know how to handle and carry ourselves in all times, both in good and bad times, in smooth or rough sailing moments, in bad or god condition. At the outset, we should be the first ones who know exactly ourselves including our dynamics, volitions, weaknesses, likes and dislikes, etc.. and with this self- knowledge, we therefore are knowledgeable enough to handle those varying life chapters.
More points to ponder next time around guys. Good luck to all our journeys in life and remember always that the best way to approach each journey is with openness and excitement.
