Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do.
If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle. As with all matters of the heart, you’ll know when you find it.” — Steve Jobs
One businessman was working very hard, struggling it out.
Someone ask that businessman, — why are you working so hard, sir ? What do you want ? …
he said ,– I have launched this new corporation. I wish to make it a success.
Is that all ? why do you wish to make it a success ?
He says – By virtue of that I will earn a few million dollars.
So, you want money in that case ?
It is not merely the success of the organization that you have established.
That is a means for the money you will earn from it.
So please tell me then,– why do you want money ? He asked the businessman.
Why do I want money? It will help me get the things of the world — he replied.
What kind of things, sir ?
He again said — 5 kind of things .. things to touch, things to see, things to smell, things to hear and things to taste..
God has given us all 5 senses. And we want the objects of these 5 senses. The whole world is a subject of our five senses.
So, in that case, money is also not the final goal.
Money is only the means to get the things of the world.
Let us ask the question again… why do you want these 5 kinds of things ?
Looking to the stranger, that businessman said –Why do I want them ? They will give me happiness, peace, calm, joy, .. there are so many names .
That means you want ultimately happiness ?.
Yes, That is right .
For the sake of happiness, you wanted the objects of the senses ?
Yes, Very correct..
And for the sake of the objects of the senses, you wanted money. That is right .and for the sake of money, you wanted to make your business a success.
Very correct ..
And for the sake of making the business a success, you were working so hard ?.
That is right .
So, the entire chain, where did it end ?
What does a person want ?
Yes , everybody working hard to achieve happiness..
