Time, Health and Wealth
These are the three fundamental sources in approaching life for human beings. In good health condition, we spend most of our time making money. We educate ourselves on ways to save money or create more wealth. Of course, money is essential in the world of today. But, at a later stage, when we have earned enough money and we have a lot of time with us, we unfortunately lack the energy to experience that life. That is called as a health problem. Without good health, the wealth and time that we have, is of no use. And we end up spending all the time and wealth we possess only to regain or to get back the health that we have lost; not to enjoy the life we have. This is the situation in everyone’s life in the present world. You can instantly create wealth through various sources but you can’t instantly fix your health. People spend a lot of money in fitness centres without doing any other activity and that is also a wrong approach.
Invest your time wisely
Here, we are talking about a huge percentage of population which is going through the satisfaction crisis. Animals don’t have this crisis as they don’t have any preferences in life. But we human beings have preferences in our lives and according to us, living without such preferences is foolishness. Right from the way we dress, the language that we speak, everything is related to our preferences. As we grow old, we reach a stage where we are unable to move as we wish. As a cancer patient, we might have everything that money can buy but medicines and a particular lifestyle is what we can endure at the time. All this never happens on a single day. So, we must decide where we are going to invest our time for the rest of our lives from now and make that decision as the highest priority. Let it be for 20 min or 40 min a day; we have to make that investment of time as the consistent discipline forever. Spending three hours in a gym for a month and then taking a break for three months is of no use.
Secret of success
For this New Year, we must tell ourselves the highest secret of any success - nothing can be attained, it can only be maintained. One thing we can never buy with wealth is time. So, we must decide to invest our time on health every day without fail and we must make sure we don’t fail in any aspect of life now and forever. In fact, Vedas say that any time we spend on health in the present moment is 18 times of the time in future, to recover from an illness. We don’t have to be fitness freaks but don’t be a failure in life because health is the only resource with which you can enjoy or enhance any other resource that we possess or we are going to possess. This is the design of the divine for human beings.
This New Year, health must be the first priority
Understanding this, to enjoy every aspect of life, let’s take a beautiful decision for this New Year. Let us take care of the first resource through which we are going to create every other resource that we want in life – our health. Once we decide this with conscious commitment, we must take one more decision to achieve unstoppable success. Instead of trying to keep up the promise that we have made for others, we must promise ourselves that we will keep up the promise we have made to ourselves. Then the entire universe will promise to deliver the life we wanted to live from now toforever.
Wishing you a life full of peace, success and abundance.
