“Chasing meaning is better for your health than avoiding discomfort Go after what creates meaning in your life and trust yourself to handle the stress that follows”

Don’t we all desire the Success? But sometimes avoid what comes along the way.

To me this quote signifies that we want the prize, the lottery ticket, the win, The Success!

But we avoid what comes on the path of getting there, which are often  & . This quote reminds us, inspires us and motivates us that let’s put up with what come along the way as Rainbow is our goal. Whatever happens on the way is only temporary.

If you are stressed from challenges, the consider that  will come with some of choices we make. But if what we choose is important to us we can learn to handle the pressure that may come.

So instead of avoiding, we can learn that bumps and pot holes will come along the way as good and bad are part of the journey.

A practice like breathing meditation first helps us to relax and then provides us space to reflect. Practices like meditations help to reduce the stress so we can then focus on our Goal!

Post Author:  Jas. Singh. I have often found myself searching for positive quotes for myself, for my daughters. I have made it my goal to publish daily posts with Positive, Inspiring quotes that are encouraging for us to learn from and apply into our daily lives.

I encourage you to not only read this quote but also to think and write does it mean to you, what and how you will apply it. If you are a leader or manager, inspire, motivate and share the positive quote with others.

I loved this quote when I first heard it. I found it inspiring and it made me pause and think, what will the world remember me with when I depart? Will I leave a legacy or will I have left an impression that my family, friends and others will remember me with?

So today, I am committing to: 

  1. Every day make a positive difference and help each and every person I meet and interact with.
  2. Balance my life between commitment to daily spiritual, streching practices, work and spending quality time with my family and friends.
  3. Contribute in ways that could help others long after I am gone. 

In this way I will do my part to leave the world in a better place in ways I can.
