Purpose Driven Life


Life is crazy…

Sometimes it feels as if there is a balance between success and failure. There is a concept called the “Empty Success Syndrome”. All it means is that one has the trappings of what it means to be successful by society’s standards yet at the same time that person does not have a sense of fulfillment. They ask themselves, “Now what?”

This photo gives off the impression of education. The words are written in chalk on the blackboard.There are so many elements one could analyse, but only three will be examined in this blog. People yearn for the life without stress and worries. However stressful and worrying situations are without a doubt a part of life. Life educates by using these situations to make the individual better and stronger. The way in which the individual reacts towards life’s situations, makes it worrisome and stressful. Power lies within.

If you were to ask most people what they want out of life, chances are at least one person would say, “I want to be rich and famous.” They equate being rich and famous with being happy. Yet many rich and famous persons are harassed constantly by the tabloids or stalked by some maniac- obsessive- psycho, so happiness may not be on the list of emotions that they experience. In the movie the Pursuit of Happyness, Will Smith’s character is trying to make it big with the outcome of having zero financial problems. However on a closer look at the movie, the real happiness is the bonding between a character father and son and actually between Will Smith and his son Jaden. Happiness is found in the simple things in life.

After the last word “happy” is three dots. In Spanish they are called “puntos de suspension”. They give the impression, “Now what?” After happiness, what direction does life take? How priorities be balanced? When will fulfillment occur? That’s what life is all about: a cycle of successes and failures to gain an appreciation of the journey and the end result.
