An age old saying, all that glitters is not gold is highly relevant today as it always has been. With increasing complexity of the society around us, it’s easy to get distracted-distracted from our original goal, distracted from what we actually need and the story of distractions continue. And this is the primary reason why succeeding at things has become such a challenge, the overlay of all the glitter makes people forget to notice the underlying rot in some things in life. And once people are won over by such false dazzles in life, the inherent decay continues to spread from a thing to a person.
To remain in track in life, along with focus, the awareness of all the deceptions is equally important. Once people can see through this veil and intentionally avoid the lure, only then they can continue working towards what they actually need in life over what they may want in that particular moment.
To pick a reference from around us, say a person is an extremely talented artist who has the ability to make a decent to great lifestyle through her/his craft. Yet, at some point in life, that person can be lured away from her/his passion towards a false sense of security in the form of a high-paying job with perks and benefits she/he did not even imagine innthe first place. And all this gold can engage the person until she/he wakes up one day to realize all the adrenaline rush and the safety of a well-paying job was fraught with emptiness and she/he has no further time in life to pursue what she/he actually dreamed of doing from their childhood. In the lure for the gold, people tend to lose the diamond of their lives.
So keeping things in perspective, holding strong to what one needs in life over what one wants and continues the pursuit with focus and dedication can shape one life’s in a much more meaningful and satisfying manner.
Thank you for your time.
See you tomorrow!!!
