The most important thing that controls the course of our life: Is it the decisions that we make? or is it the conditions that we meet? Yes God has given us conditions in which we live but He has also given us the power to make decisions. Decisions what to do, decision what to believe. If anybody would ask me what is the most important decision that I made for my life: that would be to live in a beautiful state.. Now what does that mean? It means that the moment suffering arises, I’m going to decide that I am not going to suffer and I’m going to be the best version of myself.
Suffering is one thing, pain is another thing. Suffering is when you’re thinking about what you did or didn’t do, or what someone else did or didn’t do. It is ME obsessing about ME. It is the ME ME ME game. In order to end any form of suffering you decide that you’re going to live in a beautiful state: a state where you are not going to focus on yourself, you are going to focus on something greater than yourself! your mission, your life, your purpose. when you think about these it doesn’t matter how deep you are in that suffering you instantly change.
Look, our mind was not designed to make us happy. It was designed to make us survive and which is why it is constantly thinking about whats going wrong around us. Previously it used think about survival but now it concentrates on what people think.
Life is short. We don’t know how short it is going to be. If you knew you would die tomorrow you wont be obsessing about what your boss said to you. You would do whatever you can to enjoy those final moments. You would take awe in a sunset, you would spend time with your family. So my question is why wait? huh why wait? why not have it now?
Decide today that you are not gonna suffer and you are going to live in a beautiful state. and I can promise you this is how you change “highway to anxiety and dirt-road to success” to “dirt-road to anxiety and high way to success!”
