“How to control your mind?” —This particular predicament has become a rather common household jargon. The person who triumphs in this mammoth task makes his life simpler, more fun, and a lot happier. Those who let the mind control them live a grueling, resentful, and miserable life.
Our minds are naturally wired to do the things that give us a sense of pleasure and delight, and snub the things that give us pain and hardships. But as we all know that for good things to come our way, we gotta swim ourselves through a pool of blood, sweat, and tears—which isn’t always a walk in the park. And of course, all the bad habits give us instant gratification which is why we are hooked to them so badly in the first place.
No one would indulge in smoking or drinking if it didn’t give them an instant source of joy and bliss. Consequently, everyone would indulge in doing the work they know is good for them, if it was a piece of cake. That’s why it’s imperative one learns to control the mind or be ready to face the music.
