“Whatever one lacks in oneself he must seek outside.”- Xun Zi
Seek things. Whatever you are seeking, seek it with care. Do not seek what everybody is seeking. You are created for something special. You are created for something, not for everything. Do not just follow people. If you cannot question them, if you cannot question their motives, do not follow them. Instead of following people you don’t trust, it is better to follow yourself.
If something is not right, do not seek it. If something is going to add pain to your life, do not seek it. Seek love. Seek life. Seek positive relationships. Happiness is good, but do not seek it. Instead of seeking happiness, give happiness to other people. Wherever you go, go with happiness. Always make people happy. When you that, your happiness tank will never empty. Always seek with care. Always seek with love. Always seek with compassion. When you go after things, remember, you are what you are seeking. You are what you are chasing. So before you dive into anything, make sure you examine yourself on the inside. Do not ignore how you feel on the inside about what you are seeking. If it feels right, do it. If it does not, do not do it.
In the words of Vincent Van Gogh, “Love many things, for therein lies the true strength, and whoever loves much performs much, and can accomplish much, and what is done in love is done well.”
Love many things, but focus on where you are going. Don’t waste your time. You can do anything. Nothing is impossible for you.Just focus on what you can do. Focus on what you know, not what you don’t know. Because success comes from doing what you know. Failure comes from trying to do what you do not know. It is okay to try things.
Whatever you do, no matter how difficult it may be, don’t give up. Do not give too soon. Many people are not successful because they gave up too soon. Do your work with all you have left in your tank. Do your work with love, with compassion, with empathy, with all your mind, with courage. Don’t settle for less. Do not do what is easy. Do what is hard. You do not grow by doing easy things. You grow by doing hard things.
Hard things strengthen your muscles.
Easy things weaken your muscles.
If you want to grow, if you want to challenge yourself, you must stretch yourself. You must grow yourself. You must not stuck yourself in a rut. Because there is no growth in a rut. Live your life. But not in a rut. You are not here to live in a rut. If you are in one right now, it is time to leave. Leave!
