Do Not Repeat Mistakes Again and Again
Change your life through Positive resolutions
The road to success is not easy
Your weakness, is your weakness, until you believe it to be your weakness. The obstacles are your obstacles until you consider them as your obstacles. Your own personality is vast and magnificent, and it has infinite potential. Think about your strengths and search in your own mind for methods to resolve your negative defects.
It is in human nature to commit mistakes. He commits multiple mistakes in his life, suffers repeatedly and then starts on an unknown path towards an unknown destination. A person continues to move on in his life, keeps on suffering troubles, pain and torture, and it is surprising that the person commits the same mistakes which he has already committed earlier i.e. he continues to repeat the same mistakes, even if they assume different forms. Generally a person is neither concerned about changes in his life, nor he learns from these mistakes to learn something new.
The Life continues and time gets out of hand. Because nobody has control over time. A person knows all these facts, but he has made his mind-heart so bizarre and heavy that he repeats the same mistakes even after repeatedly falling and getting hurt; which had caused him unbearable sorrow in the past.
There is a beautiful legend that two friends were walking in the darkness of night and were talking very loudly. Harish said – “Oh! Ramesh ‘what is this life?’ I cannot understand it. This life consists of only pain and sorrows. There is no respite even for two moments in this life We are engaged in work whole day like slaves. There is no hope in life. I have grown very sick of life.
Then his friend Ramesh replied – Listen brother! Harish. There is a pit ahead and we may fall into it.
And really, both friends slipped and fell into the pits; both got up, dusted their clothes and started to walk again.
Now Ramesh started to speak – Man! Friend, ours is such a bad life. We have wife-children, a family; but all of them live as per their desire. When they wish to, they speak well with us, otherwise they get angry. I am contemplating suicide.
Now it was the turn of the first friend, Harish – Look brother! There is another pit ahead. They both again fell into the pit, abused the world, and while murmuring, got up and walked forward.
A saint overheard them and thought about calling them and giving them some guidance. At this his aide told him not to worry about the talk of those two youths. They are sons of rich fathers. They drink daily and fall into these pits, abuse these pits and and start their sorry tale of woes.
The saint listened to these words and realized the Divine wisdom of these words – They fall into these pits daily, and restart their sad tale of woe; and this cycle repeats daily. This itself contains the path to obtain salvation in life and the obstacles in the path of liberation.
Man also possesses the knowledge and strength similar to God. He also has combination of unlimited power and wisdom. There is only one fault in man, and this fault is – Lack of Power of Concentration. This causes division of his power and energy into thousand of small bits, and therefore he cannot achieve perfection, cannot achieve his goals. Cannot achieve salvation in life.
According to Hinduism, when this universe was created by the Almighty God, He created human beings after creating all flora and fauna. Then His assistant Shakti questioned Him – O Lord of Gods! Whatever you have constructed, is complete, is uniquely perfect, is beautiful, and there is no shortage of any kind in this. In this way, you have created Gods instead of humans, which you wanted to create.
Almighty God laughed and admitted His mistake and started to incorporate deficiency of some sort in each of these human creations.
He has granted all the qualities required to achieve success, He has also given excessive desires for greed-avarice-obsessions such that the human is not able to concentrate on his basic goal. God also added the key of “Positive Resolution” in his mind-heart, so that the human can transform his weaknesses into absolute power to achieve complete success in life. To enjoy every moment of his life and to achieve successes in the life.
The puzzles of the human mind are very strange, it knows everything, yet it keeps its eyes shut. He turns his gaze away from the events and the results of the future actions. His actions are similar to that of a buffalo, which upturns the feed pot, after eating her fodder. Perhaps she thinks that she will not need it again, while she will need to eat its again and again.
Only those who could conquer their weaknesses through strong resolutions have progressed in their life, and they have become great personalities. Tulsidas realized the difference between lust and ascetism through the taunts of his wife, and became a great wise writer after conquering this weakness.
Valmiki realized in the sin of his robbery that – only he is responsible for the sins of his actions. Only he will have to suffer the fruits of his sinful deeds. He realized wisdom after comprehending this Divine truth and turned into Valmiki from Dacoit Ratnakar.
Buddha cursed his life path which was leading him to a general person, part of a crowd; and turned into a man of an Era, though his sheer determination.
When you talk about your weaknesses and positive energy of your own personality then you forget that your personality is vast and magnificent and that it has an infinite potential. You do not have complete knowledge about your own personality. So you should examine your full self, think about your strengths and search in your mind-heart about methods to resolve your negative defects.
How to search for own mistakes, own obstacles and own energy?
1. While thinking about your weaknesses and failures, you should certainly examine how you realized these drawbacks? If you realized them through someone’s comments, fear of society or two-three failures; then you ought to swing back and try again with full vigor.
2. If you are receiving failures, then these failures are indicating to you that your life lacks principles, human-values and thoughts. First you need to make a combination of the principles of life and proper thoughts. Discard the people, the situations which caused you hurt and pain, and led to failures; and instead concentrate on a self-centred focus with absolute full energy. If you constantly keep thinking about the failure situations, and people who caused these failures, and those obstacles; then you will forever remain weak. You have to transform your weaknesses into strengths.
3. It is the nature of man that he is generally opposed to hard work, he wants simplicity in his life. He wants to obtain everything easily, but this does not lead to success. The difficult paths in life require continuous enhancement of energy and labor-exertions; and only then life becomes simple or intuitive.
It is clear that one requires increase in energy and labor-efforts to lead the difficult path of life. Success can not be achieved by easy methods.
4. The resolution is such a great potent force that it consumes all vulnerabilities within it. The MahaTandav Dance of Lord Shiva demonstrates the strong power of determination. Stop leaning on others or takings assistance from others every time. Think deeply about your own self-power and lead your life accordingly. This does not mean that you become arrogant due to your power, maintain sweet relations with everyone.
Try to become as much introverted as you are extroverted. Do not just look at the external personality. Do not just look at others, look deeply inside your own self too. There is lot to search for in this internal world, and only this internal world can take you to the pinnacle heights of success in life.
Your weakness is your weakness until you consider it as your weakness. Your obstacles are your obstacles till you consider them as your obstacles. Whatever trait of our personality we ignore, we start acknowledging it as our weakness. When you become determined to take action to remove your weakness, then you win over it, and that weakness obstacles departs from your life.
Always remember that the Almighty God created you. He wants to make your life obstacle-free. The Almighty God has made a key for you to conquer every obstacle and to resolve all your weaknesses. Search for that key after converging your mind, you will certainly find that key.
Continue to self-reflect, always.
