Now as a man is like this or like that,
according as he acts and according as he behaves, so will he be;
a man of good acts will become good, a man of bad acts, bad;
he becomes pure by pure deeds, bad by bad deeds;
And here they say that a person consists of desires,
and as is his desire, so is his will;
and as is his will, so is his deed;
and whatever deed he does, that he will reap.
So basically, all this starts from desires. It is commonly said – “What you think is what you become” . Think good, desire for good, do good and then everything around will also be good.
To think good, one has to remain positive. I know there are situations when everything around seems pretty bad and it’s hard to see any good coming. But trust me just by being content with whatever situation (bad makes your character strong) you can be happiest.
Don’t look for shortcuts. Keep working hard till you achieve the desired. Stronger your desire, more closer you are to success. Your actions will build your character and your future.
