It would have been pretty simple and straight forward right? A world of our own. A world with no disappointments, rejection, challenges, a perfect world where life is completely the way we define it.
We all have a grand plan for our life are very passionate about it. It will be amazing to lead a life as per our plan, as per our thoughts. There would be nothing to worry about at all. We talked about How To Stop Worrying And Start Living in our past debates, but then realize that worry appears from a problem and the problem appears when life seems a little different than the plan we have for it.
But then again, that is perhaps the beauty of life. We don’t want to limit our life just to what we think we are capable of. Sometimes, when we are pushed out of our comfort zone we realize that life is asking a lot more from us. True, it appears as if life is testing us and putting us through unnecessary trouble, but how else would we realize the problems?
I mean there should be something which tells us that what we are doing is wrong. There must be something that tells us that we can mend something to repair our lives and its problems, there must be some feedback mechanism. If we look at the biggest achievements of our lives, we realize that all of these achievements had tremendous amount of problems associated with them. All these achievements at some point told us that we are incapable of even getting close to them.
All these achievements at some point mocked us, made fun of us and even made us doubt ourselves. But there was something beyond these silly messages that kept us going. Something that kept telling us we are better than that. Something that made us get out of our couches and get into action.
No wonder we all like a perfect world. It means that we will never have problems in our lives. But if there are no problems in our life, then what is the point of it. What is life without a few challenges. If that was the case, if everyone was living a perfect world based on their imagination, there would be no scope for any improvement at all.
In the end, status quo would have been the ideal solution to everything. There would be no inventions, no discoveries, no realization of how strong we are as people, no realization of how much we mean to someone else. Cos life becomes that easy, that simple or so we think. But simplicity comes at a cost of complexity, it comes at a cost of understanding that life is just that sometimes. It comes at a realization that no matter how hard we try, sometimes things go wrong and we need to find a way around it.
Above all it brings out who we really are, the real juice of what defines you and me as a person. So, instead of wondering why this or why that, ask that one question which John Chambers does, life gets a lot more meaningful than that.
This is our thought for the day. Stay tuned in for more..
