Chasing Success!

Well, it seems everybody is busy in finding success in life. We have been taught from our childhood that we need to be successful, that's why the word 'SUCCESS' has been mechanically imprinted on everyone's sub-conscious mind that we do not require much intelligence and awareness to say that 'we need to be successful'. 

That's why most of our parent's and elders tell us to study and get a college degree. So, today I'm going to talk about 'university education' and 'success'. Today, most of the people think that the word 'success' is dependent on 'education/degree'. It looks as if everyone dreams of success but we keep chasing success without knowing the true meaning of success. Anyways the quest for success is still on.

Today I've come to some determination on what type of success I want in life. Well, before chasing success in our life let's make some determination on what type of success we want or need in life. The choice is yours but let's understand about 'success' NOW....

It is very difficult to answer the claim that a person needs a university education to be successful in life because in life means different things to different people. Success in life can be achieved in different ways. Many magazines and TV programmes tell us that success means having a lot of money, having a fulfilling career, and being powerful. In contrast, most religious and spiritual organizations claim that success means finding spiritual happiness and being at peace with God and with you. Another idea of success focuses on relationships -being surrounded by people who love you and care about you, spending time with family and friends.

A University education can help you achieve some types of success, but it makes little or no difference to whether or not you are successful in other ares of life. Undoubtedly, a university education is essential if you want to have a career in a profession such as law, engineering, teaching or medicine. However, you do not need a university degree to become a wealthy and powerful movie star, sports star or business person. In fact, a university education does not generally enable you to achieve spiritual happiness, or to have successful relationships with family and friends.

In conclusion, there are many different types of success. A university education may help you to achieve professional success in some careers. However, it will not help you to achieve success in other areas of your life such as spiritual life or your relationships.

I've heard a heart touching truth "If we dig a ground of 1m depth at 10 places we'll not get water but if we dig a ground of 10m depth at one place we'll definitely get water." Success is also like that if you try different things on which you have less knowledge you are more likely to fail but if you do stick with what you know the best then it's more likely that you'll succeed.
Beyond the invisible (infinity)
"Knowing others is wisdom, knowing yourself is enlightenment."
