It is great to be ambitious but does that mean that you need to lose your mind and happiness over it?
In this post, Vishwas Mudagal shares an honest perspective on how important it is to stay happy and focused at the same time.
I’m a huge proponent of being ambitious. I believe each one of us should identify our true purpose in life & strive to achieve excellence in whatever path we choose. However, at the same time, it’s equally important to be happy.
We must enjoy the journey of life & not halt the celebrations till we reach the so-called destination called success, which is not real.
Life is uncertain. Worse, nothing is permanent in this world. Yesterday, I read an article that spoke about two incidents. One, the man who built INR 12000 crore Raymond group is now come on the road, being kicked out by his son. Second, Michael Schumacher, the greatest F1 racer, who was once the most celebrated person on earth is now forgotten and is fighting for his life in a hospital due to an accident.
What do these two incidents tell us?
That nothing is certain. We don’t know what’s going to happen tomorrow. We need money, financial security to survive, but we cannot be consumed by it.
Ambition is important to reach a certain goal, but if that ambition takes away our peace of mind, then what is the point of this life?
Bottomline-Live your life like there is no tomorrow. Be good, do good and ever be good.
Don’t hold hatred or grudges in your heart. Today is all you have. Enjoy it to the fullest while you still can!
