In the Modern World, Competition is what we live for, one man trying to be more successful than the other! And with all this, Money has become the ruler of everything. Money Rules! Having more money ultimately means being more successful. The definition of success has been altered by the concept of money. I am sure you would agree!
Money was created by Man to make trade feasible. But, the ‘Modern Man’ sadly has changed the entire concept of money. His ultimate goal in life is to earn as much money as possible. I would like to quote what The Dalai Lama XIV’s great mind taught us,
The Dalai Lama, when asked what surprised him most about humanity, he said:
Because he sacrifices his health in order to make money.
Then he sacrifices money to recuperate his health.
And then he is so anxious about the future that he does not enjoy the present;
the result being that he does not live in the present or the future;
he lives as if he is never going to die, and then dies having never really lived.”
I don’t need to say any further after this.. What we really have to think about is what is the actual definition of success.
This would be a great topic if discussed. Will get to learn a lot of different perspectives.
