In this blog, Grandmaster Shifuji Shaurya Bhardwaj expresses his views on how to live happily. Even though it is a complicated process, but we must aim to try and find happiness from the small-small things in life. After all, the biggest challenge in this world is to control the naughty monkey in our life – that is, our mind.
In my experience, I have found that people who have fought many wars have commonly experienced depression at some point in their life. However, their biggest strength has been to conquer this depression and pressure. Moving on in life, when the going gets tough, is the biggest strength of us humans.
After all, it is only humans, out of all other species put on this planet, who have been blessed with the ability to move forward, no matter what. This is why it is essential that we do not take our life for granted. After all, the entire world is not bad. We must strive to find happiness in the small-small every day things that we do. There are millions of people in the world, but not everybody is engaged in killing one another. This shows that there is still some humanity leftover in people in the world.
The fact is that even though we may believe that our actions have no effect on others, it eventually does. Every action has an equal and opposite reaction – and this is typically the biggest point of friction and the foundation of every challenging situation we end up facing in life.
Deal with this friction, do not suppress it. If you did not like something that someone has said to you, make it a point to let them know. If you are not comfortable speaking to them directly, then message and let them know that you are uncomfortable with the situation that transpired. After all, life is too short to carry on living with grudges. And furthermore, if you suppress these feelings, they will eventually all come tumbling out either in the form of an altercation or in the form of mental stress.
This is why all of us need to make certain firm decisions about life. There comes the point in everyone’s life where certain life-changing choices have to be made. It is your own life, and you alone have to make the decisions. “A ship without a captain will not reach its port.” This is why it is so necessary to have a destination in mind where you ultimately want to reach.
It is up to you to decide whether you want to be a winner and reach your destination, or if you want to lose this daily battle with life and forego your destination. A person who wins once is not someone who wins one battle in their life. A winner is a person who wins every day in the life. The struggle amongst losing or winning is fought out every day in the morning and the decision taken in the morning itself will ultimately determine the outcome of that particular day – whether it will be a winning day or not. Everything is in your own hands. Your outlook towards life can only be determined by you, yourself.
For instance, if the alarm rings in the morning and you automatically hit the snooze button that will be the very first battle you lose that day. So stop pressing snooze on your life and get up and claim victory for yourself.
