The No-Nonsense Guide to Improve Your Life Right Now, Part IV

By Anuj Chugh

Another Perspective On Life, Glory And Guts

Since, I am very much into good quotes, I present you with the most amazing lines, that have the power to change the way you live your life. The only effort needed on your part is to accept and embrace these lines and the wisdom contained in them, whole-heartedly.

“Far better it is to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs even though checkered by failure, than to rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy nor suffer much because they live in the gray twilight that knows neither victory nor defeat.” ~ by Theodore Roosevelt

In all the good self-help and success books I've read, two most important and indispensable steps, that are recurring and repeated are:- 1) It all boils down to how badly you want it, and 2) Courage, guts and fearlessness. I realize, with every passing day, that life is a serious business and nothing is predetermined.

The problem is not getting out of negative situations. There will always be some sort of negativity in your life, no matter what you do, how much you do. Life suffices it. Problem comes only when it weighs down on you and makes you, static and fearful.

Show some confidence man. There will always be people who will downgrade you, downplay you as so many are fighting for the same positions, for limited resources. You have to find your own way, make your own way. Things are not easy. It's all bloody mean and bitchy out there. I hope you understand these things, give them due attention and take care of yourself.

There are people who do wrong with guilt and there are people who do wrong without any guilt. In this life, you come here, are born here to avoid pain, reduce your suffering and seek your happiness. No, it's wrong, you are not here to make this world a better place to live in. You are here for your self interests and that is, the pursuit of happiness and lofty heights. To earn money, relationships and those things, which will make you happy. You can't spread happiness, until you are happy yourself.

Care enough, to stand your own ground. You meet people and you talk to them nicely but there's one right that you shouldn't give to anyone and that is, teaching you right and wrong. You will live your own life, only if you have your own judgements, though you can use at times, other person's opinion as your reference point.

Take care of the way you carry yourself i.e., the way you act and move. If you act like a beggar, you will be a beggar. Don't worry or have second thoughts about it. For this is a world of appearance. This world relies upon appearances, and heavily at that.

Don't believe in god, don't believe in destiny either. You are not that weak. Belief in God, only works when the person has developed a strong character and has learned to keep the bigger picture in sight. It requires maturity. Otherwise, the person only begs in front of the idols for what is lacking in him / her, in vain. Alternatively, they may blame 'destiny'.

A rich man only has more money. Nothing great about him if he is tough on people in poverty, and not its causes. People working under him, eat off their own blood and sweat, through hard labor. Not off the so-called, 'love, mercy, compassion, sympathy and forbearance,' shown by the fat guy. The bloated guy is enjoying a good outward quality of life. But his mean spirit and dark heart will never allow him to be at peace with himself. His darkness will chase him down everywhere, even to the depths of hell.

Don't care if you live only 4 years more and die. The only thing that matters is, how much ever you live, you should live like an elegant lion and not like a clumsy dog. The only thing that you really want from the core of your heart, is to be dignified with yourself - is to honor your own self with your behavior. So you see, your life is in your own hands.
