To be very frank, most of us do not even live halfway; whereas life is our own – very personal and we should be living it full! Who stops us; what prevents us? Paradox is most of us believe that a full life means experiencing a bit of everything! No; full life means doing things, even if these are fewer, with full heart and mind, understanding and knowledge, consciousness and conviction!
Most of us think we know enough, what we are doing is correct; but when we do not get what we want, we waver to ask ourselves why and where we are going wrong. We somehow explain or satisfy ourselves that this can happen, have patience, it would come; but we do not try to fathom whether it has something to do with our own understanding. In the bargain, we do not get even 50% return on our efforts and end up muddling through our life.
We would read, listen and participate in motivational topics, enjoy exciting quotes, attend personality, character or leadership building programs; but do we drop our preconceived notions or allow our paradigm to shift in the right direction? No, we do not! Then, how can we believe that we have better understanding now, simply because we have attended such programs? More than 90% of people feel that having attended or read something better has made them better!!!
Our real problem is we lack tenacity to reach full understanding, develop full conviction and validate it by results we get. We stop midway, believing that we have got it or it is not worth going further.
Living with half definitions and half convictions!
It would be difficult to believe but true that it is more common all over the world to live with incomplete definitions and fractured convictions! To do the opposite i.e. living with full understanding is an exception! To cite some examples:
Do a reality check on your conclusions and convictions
Your conclusions and convictions are fractured or false, if:
In short, your definitions, knowledge, understanding, conclusions and convictions are real and complete, only if you live by those regardless you get successes or setbacks!
Living a full Life!
It is better to be ignorant than to be ill or partially informed! But, your information is complete, only if you are implementing or using it!! It is bunk to say that oh, I know it but don’t feel like using it. Fact may be that you do not know it fully. It is impossible that your information or conclusions are nearly complete and your mind would not compel you to use it.
You take cycles of good and bad, high and low as granted. But, one of main factors for such cycles is you draw upon your right conviction, which brings good and then you drop it only to face bad. Reason why you draw upon and drop, your convictions are actually fractured; otherwise there is no reason why you would not always stay with those! To add to your woes, you develop illusion that you have the right knowledge; but it is not helping.
As mentioned before, put your full faith in living a full life and you can only do that when you go an extra mile to get your information, knowledge, learning, conclusions and convictions as complete as you can and then do the above reality check. Never worry about too many things or too much information. When you do few things right and complete, you would automatically get opportunity and time to do more!
So, live a full life by aforesaid definition, you would surely reap rich fruits forever!
