Here’s something I heard from an old man recently.
“The source of most troubles in this world is lethargy. The key to a happy and content life lies in ………. exercise and activity. So, if you want to avoid depression, dissatisfaction and all things negative, exercise. And if you want to grow and improve, stretch yourself to the limit. But remember, you are not just your body. You are a combination of your body, mind, heart and soul. So
1. Be physically active; try to do all your work yourself. And if you want to go a step further, stretch your body to the limit; As you keep pushing the limit, the limit will keep moving ahead and you’ll keep growing stronger.
2. Ask questions. Be curious. Never believe in anything without thinking. In other words keep your mind active. Keep thinking. And if you want to go a step further, stop being afraid of new ideas, stretch the limits of your mind, the only thing that stops us from mentally venturing into unknown territories is ourselves and our fears. Overcome yourself and you’ll keep growing stronger.
3. Be good to the people around you. Love them and help them wherever you can without any expectation of any return. Just give. And if you want to go a step further, love all creatures, help everyone, try to stretch the capacity of your heart to the limit. Help even those who never asked you and don’t worry if they respond by hurting you. Achieve that and you’ll keep growing stronger.”
