I guess it goes without saying that in today’s world it’s substantially preferable and prudent to conquer yourself rather than trying to conquer your peers, friends, family, society, or the world—for reasons we all know and understand. But even after explicitly knowing this, we still act the way we have always been. We still blame our boss for not being able to grow in the company, we blame our colleagues for backstabbing us, we blame our parents for our shortcomings, we blame our partner for our emotional outburst. And some people go one step ahead and blame the entire universe, God, destiny, the fate for all the wrong things happening in their lives.
What this actually signifies is that we are still lacking somewhere or the other in exalting our intelligence and are letting our minds seamlessly function in autopilot—according to all the old beliefs and set patterns, which is getting the better of us.
