A thought for those who want to overcome their circumstances in order to succeed.
“Sometimes we can meet for a cup of tea”….That is all I can offer…. Nothing more. Everyone has to fight their own battles… And one has to climb the stairs nearest to him….No lifts are there.
Over the years, I have learned that no one can help anyone. A man’s battle is basically with his circumstances. His circumstances and his conditions are more powerful than his capacity and Will to Overcome those circumstances.
Gandhiji used to overcome his obstacles by following two principles
1) I will observe fast for certain days unless my obstacles give in.
2) Whether, my Will to Overcome my circumstances can actually overcome my circumstances or not is entirely in hands of God. So I will keep chanting his name during my fast. I will keep calling Him to help me during my fast”.
How far his method can work today is a big question.
Experimenting on theories is the only by which scientists try to discover principles that work. Experimenting with whatever suggestion you may think will work, is the only way to test it.
Summary : The Will to Overcome circumstances has to be made stronger than the strength of obstacles.
