In some parts of the world where stray dogs roam freely in the street and you happen to be passing in your car in the night, they run behind the car at full throttle. Once they reach in front of the vehicle, they are confused at what to do? The go about their business, till they see another car and the cycle continues. Likewise in life we run behind certain things without knowing why we are doing it. In the process we trample all that comes in our way, hurt people, alienate friends, make foes and get tired. Once we reach the destination, we forget why we were running in the first place. Yes, it does feel good for a while but soon insecurities take over and we have to find another target.
While aiming for goals and achieving them is a good thing, if you stop and ask yourself why you are doing it, the journey to that goal will be far more meaningful. Otherwise you will keep running from pillar to post your entire life without reaching anywhere. So next time before your mind runs, stop and think for a moment how this goal can bring fulfillment to you and others.
