Those there are many educational quotes, this one “Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever” has touched almost all Indian’s heart. A quote by Mahatma Gandhi that lets us with the message how important is each day in our life. Mind is the most powerful thing, when it is filled with positive thoughts, the rest will fall in place. Do not keep anything for tomorrow, if it meant to be done today, do it right away. Procrastination is the biggest enemy within each of us. No matter how different or tough the job is- things to be done today should be given priority over anything else.
Knock the Doors of Wisdom
Knowledge is always an asset, no matter what life brings you to and how things change, knowledge you gained can never be taken away from you. Knowledge is having the right answer for all questions, it is the power that can only be shared but never can be given away. Understanding is a deeper knowledge, there are many who knows many things, but only a few knows what is meant by each of those. Knowledge, attitude and performance has to be put together to count the benefits. To knock open the door of wisdom, knowledge is necessary.
Don’t Worry about what is Gone
Life is too short to worry about what is lost, “Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever”, by this, not a single day of yours will be wasted. The power and opportunity to apply wisdom is gained through continuous persistence. Everyone should have the eager to learn new things, try something new every day. It doesn’t matter what the result is, putting effort is what it matters. The way we live life if there is no tomorrow is different from how we usually live it, the attitude is what it matters!
Take Decision when you are Calm
Making decision when in anger and giving promises when happy are not advisable; this is when emotions are taking control over your mind. Don’t react or respond to anything with emotions, always use thoughts and knowledge for judgment. Try to be curious in life; this opens lots of doors to success. There will be more than one opportunity available for us, but it is the way we interpret that matters. Investment in knowledge pays the best interest. If you have ever wondered what the food for the soul is; it is knowledge. Don’t ever stop learning, because life will not stop teaching. Each day is different in its own way, what you would learn today is different from what you have learned yesterday; similarly what I learnt is not what you have learnt today, so “Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever”.
It is easy to learn almost all things, but learning to trust people around you is a tough task. This can be learnt only through experience and passage of time. Things change, so does people. It is not possible to trust all at all times. But be sincere to yourself and never cheat or make fun of others. If there is a tomorrow; things will hit back on you. You will reap only those that you have sowed, so do good to other if you want goodness to come your way.
“Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever” should be used as a motivation in life. It is a gift to learn because not many are lucky to have this opportunity!
