“Impossible is just a big word thrown around by small men who find it easier to live in the world they’ve been given than to explore the power they have to change it. Impossible is not a fact. It’s an opinion. Impossible is not a declaration. It’s a dare. Impossible is potential. Impossible is temporary. Impossible is nothing.” ― Muhammad Ali
Ordinary mind thinks small thoughts, while the extra ordinary mind, thinks extra ordinary thoughts. The difference is all about the thoughts. You take each step out of your thoughts. If, you have a big game plan for life, you act accordingly, if you think, big & grand life is not for me, you take small steps in life.
If I think to run a 100 million dollar company in the future, the whole thoughts of mine will revolve around that big idea, & all my actions, will be to that plan.
The mind will serve you the way you want. I am the one, who has to make a choice, how I wish to play with my life, small or large. Life gives us what we ask for, nothing more, nor less.
When we think small thoughts, our mind is engaged in petty things, & rather than thinking some big stuff, & manifesting those big thoughts in our life, we focus more on the things that is not useful, & that takes unnecessary energy out of us.
Life is a habit, so does the thinking. We can choose what kind of thoughts that can serve us. If we really want to make it big, in our life, we should learn to start dropping those activities that takes our time, but is of no real purpose, & focus on the things that can push our life forward.
Watch all the actions of your day, & focus more on the real work. Timely break is an advantage. But when we linger around the day, & don’t give much importance to the day, than that day will provide you, what we have offered to the day. Nobody can play smart with life, we can only think, we can cheat people, but when it comes to life, you have to be honest. It’s that plain & simple.
Life always offers us, what we offer to life. Life is always at our service. God has given us a mind that will go into the direction, where we want him to go. When we make a choice, all our thoughts reflect about that choice, & then we can choose the most beneficial thoughts for us, & those thoughts, & can show us the future life, lying ahead for us.
People don’t show up courage, because they see the long road, and before they take that first step, they get frightened, & leave the things, as it is, without acting on it. No special soul has ever walked down this earth. Everyone has to face their fear, & take that first step of courage, in the direction of life; they wish to have for themselves.
Life only happens to those, who dare to make it, and it’s not that, only few have those dares, we all are born with the same courage & fear. It’s just that some choose to overcome their fear, & for some it’s so frightening, that they choose to live with it, for the rest of their life.
Nobody is gifted with extra ordinary mind. You have to create it for yourself, by making more choices with life, by switching path quite often, and doing things differently, whenever you get the chance, to do so.
It’s our daily habits, that creates extra-ordinary life. After a dedicated practice, the life of an extra ordinary mind seems like a play, but that doesn’t prove that the things became easier. It’s out of the practice & strict training of the mind; they make us look everything easier, & effortless. The champions have put themselves, into the position from where they can’t lose. They just can’t afford to look back in their life, & keep their eyes only on the future. That’s the perfect way to go about life.
Life tests us at each point, & makes us stronger, every time, if we go on pushing the envelope. Everybody have their fear, & life frightens us each day, with the same fear. But if we run away, the fear comes back in some other shape & form. We should learn to stand & face anything that falls on our lap, if not today, do it tomorrow. Prepare yourself first, & you will surely win, against any situation of your life.
We have to accept, what comes our way. Preparation is very important, & we should follow our emotions. Our emotions know the language of the soul, & the soul can never go wrong. If the heart feels fine for the action, jump to it, & if your heart denies, pull yourself back. Preparation has to be done from inside, before we move out, to face the world. Once we are sure from inside, no defeat is possible in the outside world.
Life doesn’t change in a day, but each day we should add new things to our daily schedule, & slowly it starts reflecting in our outside world. The best lesson of life is to keep moving. We should learn, not to get caught up with our success, and this saves us from all the pride & ego trip.
If, our focus is on the goal, then we miss the real goal that is the path. The path is something that takes us to the goal, & once we reach to the goal, nobody can sit with the goal forever. The goal is achieved, & great satisfaction filled our heart, now further path has to be continued. If our focus is on the path, we are not bothered about goal, because the one, who focus on the path, certainly going to cover many goals, of his life.
Choose your path well, & walk till the end. The path has to be out of your heart, & should serve the process of evolution, that means the path should help you to grow each day. If the path is out of heart, we enjoy all the actions we take on the path, & we grow & evolve on the path. Then we are less concern with the goal, & the wisdom gets develop on the path that, tells us that, no other thing, of this world can satisfy us, more than this path.
Our heart has this intuitive quality to set us a path for us that can help us to achieve, whatever we ask from the path. We should follow our heart more often. The path of life changes in the moment of silence, & more often at the level of heart.
As we grow in life, we see the clear path, & then the action becomes stronger, on the path. Normally we are frightened, because we cannot see the whole path. But let me tell you, nobody on this earth, can see what’s lie ahead of them, all they can see, is what’s going on in their mind, in this very moment, & they keep on walking till the clear path is visible to them.
When we follow our heart, we fail miserably, but that should not hold us back, to listen to our heart. We fail, only when we expect more, & receive less. We fail, because we haven’t paid the price, yet. We fail, when we leave the things in the middle, & didn’t go till the end. We fail, because we miss the right time.
Try to stretch bit longer, try to get better, improve, serve, love, try all the options you have, until no option remains in your life, & you will never come out as a failure.
Go through the life of all the great souls, & we will get one thing in common, “they strive till the end, no matter what. They rested, took a pause, & again moved on the path, they have chosen for themselves.”
Big stride is all about energy & enthusiasm. Energy & enthusiasm is not something, we get as a gift each day. We should figure out the method to dive deep inside, & create passion for life. We should look for the things that fill our belly each day to help us to strive forward in life. Be it meditation, be it a hot coffee, be it a long run, be it yoga, good music, people you love the most, anything. We should know what our daily dose of motivation is, & should utilize it to fill our day with energy & enthusiasm.
The world around us doesn’t change in a day. Sometimes it takes months, & sometimes it takes years, but if someone is truly committed, he can slowly change the course of the game, & can create the world around him, that he has imagined for himself.
“No one saves us but ourselves. No one can and no one may. We ourselves must walk the path.” ― Buddha
We want somebody to come & shake us up, or some miracle should happen in our life, & everything should become alright. All the illusion, we carry in our head, spoils our game. Without making the effort no real change has ever been possible. No magic or mystery have ever noted on this earth, without sincere dedicated effort. This is the real fact of life, & if, we know some other truth, or some easy way to get the truth of life, than beware from that truth, it may lead you to astray.
“Do not believe in anything simply because you have heard it. Do not believe in anything simply because it is spoken and rumored by many. Do not believe in anything simply because it is found written in your religious books. Do not believe in anything merely on the authority of your teachers and elders.
Do not believe in traditions because they have been handed down for many generations. But after observation and analysis, when you find that anything agrees with reason and is conducive to the good and benefit of one and all, then accept it and live up to it.” ― Buddha
