An Easy Guide to Greatness: Choose Pain

The dedication to greatness doesn’t come because of the joy the achievement gives. It (joy/ happiness) is only an aftereffect. But it your ability to bear the pain and misery of work – is what brings greatness.

Yes! You should learn to love the pain – to love the misery. For it is in that work that you shape yourself, that you purify your soul.

Greatness has to be forged out of hard struggle and the bantering of the soul every time. But you will come out of the furnace as a pure metal.

  1. Today I was disturbed a lot due to tough OFFICIAL situations, could not sleep – “Yes! You should learn to love the pain – to love the misery. For it is in that work that you shape yourself, that you purify your soul.” – These words encouraged me to MOVE ON TO LOVE THE PAIN and TO LOVE THE MISERY. Keep writing Satya. Your words can motivate a million.

    1. Sometimes I do feel that ‘struggle’ is a gift. Not many are lucky to get it. However, it is up to us to use that an opportunity for self-improvement. Glad to know that the writings are help you go through the misery.

  2. Just want to chime in here and say thank you. I’ve recently realised that I was creating my own personal hell, but I didn’t consider that the actual work was getting me down. Thank you for the reminder 🙂

    1. Dear Nadine,
      Glad to know that you found peace.
      Hell is our own creation and it is within us to let it rule or us ruling it.
      Take care,
      Sathya
