Make yourself a better life it’s just a choice away

I choose to dress like the way I do. I said no to coffee because I wanted to. I waited and search
for long to buy the watch that I believe, defines me. I choose whether or not I should look after
my health. I decided to start my career after Engineering and put my post graduation studies a
hold. I made the choice.

Life is all about the choices we made. Every single thing in our life is a result of choice we have
made. Some may find this fact distasteful as they complain about their lives, hate their jobs, and
wish things were different without even realizing they were only responsible for that. Looking
for answers and digging their self if at any moment they realize this and decide to take action
they expect an overwhelming response from themselves. The efforts by mistake are lightly
considered showing impatience, as the benefits of this transformation and the transformation
(much needed) itself is ‘moment – to – moment’.

So to embark this transformation in the journey of our life, we start browsing for self
improvement and motivational articles or books, hoping for the enlightment to happen.

I have seen so many people around me practicing so , and I always wonder –  is this
transformation an easy, quick and painless job? Is this the skill which one needs to learn only
once in a life time? If yes , then why can’t I be one of them . Observing them closely , here is
what I see.

Spending few days on this exercise they realize life is not simple (back to dissatisfaction again ).
For them, they did their best, but for no gain, living the same ordinary, mundane, stressful life.
And they finally come to the conclusion that very few people are blessed with such moments
where self realization and enlightment happens as a flash of light. And then they keep on waiting
to come across a big enough catalyst to wake up!

Does this ‘big enough catalyst’ approach them? Do they finally wake up ? (Thinking for the
answer , it will always be no 🙂 . If any doubt , look for an honest answer from urself first).

Until the time they will wake up ,open their eyes and mind, they will never experience the kind
of insight (the force we all are looking for) that will change the life. For any ordinary man,
life is routine with the same challenges, worries, ups and downs. With this rigid belief in their
subconscious mind they would never become desperate enough to go beyond the fog they have
created by their obsession with worldly affairs (over the years accountable to half of their lives ,
sigh !!).

So when we (here including myself , as I am also a wannabe ) wish to change this routine
which we are used to, we have to have to take the action, the real action, every single day or
actually, every single moment. There may come a point of restlessness or mild dissatisfaction ,
but it happens , the transformation we are expecting is still away , keep moving on should be the
motto. Now , when , where and what action to take is sadly again our choice!!

The point that I’m trying to make (eventually learned) is that self empowering transformation
is a moment-to-moment thing. If we really want a new serene and improved life then must
learn that, it is derived from the small changes that we make moment to moment. This involves
commitment, vigilance and the perseverance to pick ourselves up and start over each and every
time that we fall.

Understanding one basic thing about life that it is always changing and transformative and can
be more and more amazing by the result of small changes , we bring to it. Small, simple may be
insignificant changes which we make can dismantle the texture of our mundane life.

Make yourself a better life it’s just a choice away 🙂

PS : Do it wisely.

    i agree with u , that ppl want to change their lifestyle at some point or the other ….coz thy r unhappy with their life for wat ever reason, be it work or personal. But wat one actually want is a life with out any trouble or worries …which i must say is impossible .
    wat happens is usually one looks around n finds everyone in a better position than himself (which actually aint true)..n this usually is the force behind the whole “CHANGE”.

    i personally believe that wat one needs to do is knw himself …to knw wat makes u happy
    and wat is the sourse of ur troubles …..
    the source may b easy to get rid of (like a bad relationship ),or it may b ltl harder (unsatisfying job..which u cant leave for various reasons ).
    but i can assure u ..if one can JUST knw the source of the trouble n has a will to eliminate the source (which i must say usually is a tough decision)..u ll get the happiness n the CHANGE u dream abt .

I am not saying your information isn’t good, but suppose you added a headline that grabbed a person’s attention? I mean Make yourself a better life it’s just a choice away saakshinagpal is a little boring. You ought to glance at Yahoo’s front page and note how they create news titles to grab people to click.
