wherever you go go with all your heart Confucius

Wherever you go, go with all your heart.


Regardless of our motives or compulsions, we are all stuck in some sort of a routine or ritual that we do not really want to be part of. This could be anything from an unhappy relationship to a not-so-happening city to a dreary nine-to-five job. However, we often disregard the fact that a half-hearted approach to something is almost as good as not doing it all.

People who have a lackadaisical approach to everything in life have a very uninspiring presence. They simply go through the motions, hardly ever enjoying the process. As a result, they are always frustrated with, well, everything. They are always waiting in vain for something that will change their life for the better. All this while, they remain blissfully unaware of the fact that what actually needs a change is their outlook on life. Things that had previously seen dull suddenly seem intriguing the moment one stops doing things perfunctorily.

Believe it or not, we have the power to transform not just our lives, but also those of the people around us. Every successful man we look up to today made it big in life because they were at peace with their environment. They did not approach their jobs with half measures. And that is something all of us must really look to emulate.

All you need to do is put your heart and soul into whatever you do. A person who is enthusiastic about what they do infuse their peers with an unmissable positivity. Every ounce of dedication we put into our lives inspires our friends and colleagues to become better versions of themselves. And in doing so, we also become better versions of our own selves.

Kong Fuzi, popularly known as Confucius, was an ancient Chinese philosopher. Known for his thoughtful quotes about life, he once remarked: “Wherever you go, go with all your heart.”
