Life changes so very quickly. It does not give us enough time to think and plan the next step. People leave….plans change….priorities change….
All the people whom I knew in school are only profile images to me on social channels now. I don’t know much about them. All the people whom I met in college have moved on in life to new professions, new spheres of learning, new phases of life.
When I look back ….I wonder, what did I learn from all the people who shared some moments of life with me. What were the lessons life taught me when they were around?
Some people have large social circles and channels. I wonder if they ever spend time analyzing or imagining what purpose the other people played in their lives? Do they even have time to do that?
There are no rules in life. If you want to spend your entire life meditating, you can. If you want to spend your entire life dreaming, you can. If you want to spend your entire life socializing, you can. If you want to spend your entire life studying, you can.
It’s what you want to do and not what others want you to do. Many of us change our priorities based on what others expect from us and in the end, all those people don’t even matter to us. Only a handful matter in life.
I changed myself for a lot of people. I changed my rules for a lot of people…..people who don’t even matter anymore.
People who know what they are doing, why they are doing what they are doing and where are they heading are most successful. But again, there are no defined rules for success.
If you think being healthy is success, you can be healthy. If you think being rich is success, you can be rich. If you think having fun is success, you can have fun. If you think, being famous is success, you can be famous.
So, the conclusion – we have no rules to life and no rules to success. Are there any rules at all then?
If you want to be rude, you can be rude. If you want to be polite, you can be polite.
You define the rules, you follow the rules and you bear the consequences.
Do you define your own life rules? Do you think you need any rules at all?
