Judge your PRESENT and your FUTURE ONLY on ONE factor.
How strong is your DESIRE to excel in your work.
How strong is your DESIRE to make your MARRIAGE successful and a strong foundation for a BEAUTIFUL LIFE.
How strong is your DESIRE to make every moment that you spend with your kids a moment they will relish for long time to come.
How strong is your DESIRE to CONTRIBUTE to the world around.
I can go on and on but the most important part is that we do not understand the importance of this. Sometimes in the name of taking a pragmatic decision we start an endeavor that lacks this very fundamental factor of DESIRE and hence the spark is not strong enough to create the energy that is needed to push us to the desired destination. Instead we make our DESIRE start working against us by doing something from which our DESIRE only pushes us away. In other words, by not working on what we DESIRE to work on, we have given an opportunity for FAILURE to step in at the very first step.
This in turn becomes a painful journey accompanied by financial problems, relationship trouble, health issues because once we go against our DESIRE we create dis-harmony in our being.
