Each Change A Death

Each Change A Death – Marcus Aurelius

Each change brings about chaos from our normal world, Chaos of the unknown, Chaos of discomfort and Pain,

Each time we descend into this unknown world, We die a little,

We die a death…

A death of our old self.

A death of the way we used to do things

A death of the way we used to think…

And from those deaths we are reborn…

But life is ever-changing so we are forever dieing

& If you’re not adapting you will forever live in a world of Chaos.

‘If you’re not growing – Your dying’ – Tony Robbins

As the same fire assumes different shapes when it consumes objects differing in shape, so does oneself take the shape of every creature in whom he is present

As the same fire assumes different shapes when it consumes objects differing in shape, so does oneself take the shape of every creature in whom he is present. – Marcus Aurelius

Oneself take the shape of every creator in whom he is present… Look around your office, Your social circle, Your family… Now look at yourself, Do you resemble them?

Maybe not at first look… But dig deeper… Your thoughts, Your actions, Your mood… They converse about tv shows, talk about their anxiety… How they can’t be bothered, Continue reading “As the same fire assumes different shapes when it consumes objects differing in shape, so does oneself take the shape of every creature in whom he is present”

Falling down is an accident. Staying down is a choice.

Sometimes the fall can hurt.

We can fall far,

We can fall fast &

We can fall hard

 

We got so consumed in moving towards the objective that we don’t see the obstacles or the mistakes.

We just feel the fall.

and it hurts.

It hurts so bad that we don’t want to get back up, so we stay down.

Even when the pain has gone.

Because we remember the pain.

But if you looked back to the fall and the actions leading up to the fall… You will find the cause of the fall.

And in looking back at the fall and finding the cause of it, You will have discovered something more valuable than if you never fell.

Which can take you further than you have ever been before… But it can’t, Not if you don’t get back up… Falling down can hurt or
Falling down can be an education

That choice is yours

Win from within. Usain Bolt

Sometimes

Winners lose and losers win,

The ref makes a bad call, Your opponent lands a lucky punch… There are many externals that are out of our control… What is in your control?

The effort you put into training & Doing your best on the day… Remember that even you could be the loser who ends up winning on a bad call… Is that the victory you want?

Do your best

Win from within

How long are you going to wait

How long are you going to wait before you demand the best for yourself? – Epictetus⠀

An interesting observation I’ve made in myself and others -⠀

We are quick to offer advice to our family and friends, Even go as far as getting annoyed with them if they don’t follow our judgments.⠀

Because we want the best for them, We know that they could do better and make better choices…⠀

Yet when it comes to ourselves -⠀
