“This is a precious moment, but it is transient.
It is a little parenthesis in eternity.”
“Inner silence promotes clarity of mind; It make us value the inner world;
It trains us to go inside To the source of peace and inspiration When we are faced with problems and challenges.”
Goals are a means to an end, not the ultimate purpose of our lives. They are simply a tool to concentrate our focus and move us in a direction. The only reason we really pursue goals is to cause ourselves to expand and grow. Achieving goals by themselves will never make us happy in the long term; it's who you become, as you overcome the obstacles necessary to achieve your goals, that can give you the deepest and most long-lasting sense of fulfillment.
Most people never feel secure because they are always worried that they will lose their job, lose the money they already have, lose their spouse, lose their health, and so on. The only true security in life comes from knowing that every single day you are improving yourself in some way, that you are increasing the caliber of who you are and that you are valuable to your company, your friends, and your family.
People are not lazy. They simply have impotent goals / that is, goals that do not inspire them.
