Be miserable or motivate yourself. Be helpless or in control. Blame someone or take responsibility. These are examples of two ways you can see your life. One way leads to happiness, the other to dissatisfaction. Have to work this weekend complete an approaching deadline? You could see this as “This isn’t fair, my free time is being used to benefit the company I work for.” Or, you could take responsibility and see it as “This is a rewarding opportunity to push my limits, learn and grow.” There is no reason to cope in your career (or anything else)- either change your mindset about it, or change it.

It says, “There are three ingredients in the good life: learning, earning, and yearning.” It spoke to everything that I believe is important in life, which is why I decided to hang onto to it for motivation. When I’m feeling stressed out with my work, my fortune helps me to put things in perspective and refocus my goals.
If you want to live a good life, never stop learning, earning, or yearning. These three elements are what shape our character and guide our life choices. Without a balance of the three, you’ll lead a decent life, but not the best life you could lead.
These three factors, learning, earning, and yearning, are key to living a good life, both as we strive for early retirement and financial independence and once we reach it.
Born without limbs, but getting the best out of this life, Nick Vujicic is a powerful motivational speaker that manages to shake his audience to its very core every single time. Having no arms and legs… imagine that for a second! It should be enough for your brain to take you through a series of events of how life would be like. Now imagine that this same man can swim, surf, play football, and golf.
Life has no limitations, except the ones you make !
A farmer was taking three of his donkeys for sale to the market. On the way, he saw a river, and decided to have a dip. Since, he had only two ropes to tie the donkeys to a tree, he looked around wondering how to tie the third one.
He saw a sage and sought his help if he could give him a rope to tie the third donkey. The sage did not have a rope but had a suggestion.
He told the farmer, “let the third donkey see you tying the other two donkeys to a tree. Then you pretend to tie this one also”.
The farmer did as he was told and went for a dip in the river. Coming back, he thanked the sage, and saw that the donkeys stood exactly at the same spot where he had left them.
He untied the two donkeys and patted the third one to start moving. After going a little distance, imagine his surprise when the third donkey stood still at the same spot. Cajoling, kicking or talking did not help with the donkey, refusing to move from the spot. The farmer went back to the sage, who told him, “untie the third donkey”. “But”, protested the farmer, “I have not tied him”.
The sage asked, “You know it. But does the donkey know that?”
Sure enough the farmer went back and pretended to untie the donkey. The donkey moved immediately as though released and walked over to join the other two donkeys.
Moral of the story: We are all also tied up by too many imaginary ropes….. which are really non-existent.
The only truth is there are no boundaries in real life and anyone can stretch to any extent …
Don’t we all see records being broken, every time, everywhere and every day?
