We are what we preach. In other words, we are able to determine an outcome based on our predisposition. Today’s blog touches getting the most from our endeavors.
If we decide to do something, we do it. However, our love determines our victory. If we, do it halfheartedly then we could fail. Even if we do it full heartedly, we could fail, but at least we failed knowing we had applied ourselves. Trying wholly gives us a sense of satisfaction and fulfillment by either winning or losing.
Life is what we make it. This sense of accomplishment whether victorious or not is the essence required to make life meaningful. Well, at least that’s my own opinion. Perhaps yours is different. Moreover, it’s pretty negative to fail after making a shabby attempt to do something in the first place, as we can only blame ourselves for not giving it our best shot.
At the beginning of any activity, it is difficult if not impossible to see the full extent of positive results. We have no guarantee of success, but taking daily steps to reach our target requires consistent input. It takes time and effort to perfect a project, so patience is a virtue. Step by step actions are required to reach fruition.
There is an expression called, “Only the strong survive!” which sums up the winners and losers and what it takes to survive in difficult times. Not that we can guarantee an outcome the way we want it, but we can take to the grave the strength of our spirit and the effort we made to overcome the struggle. Clearly, this attitude could be construed as extreme, but then we only live once, and consequently I’m sure you'll agree that our connection is entirely reliant on our output.
Many people are in doubt about what is their objective as a human being, so following the attitude of giving it every ounce of effort to accomplish greatness and go as far as possible are as good as any!
Prof. Carl Boniface
