The ILLness of Success

Climbing the ladder to success is like watering a never ending fountain. The human perspective of clear vision is achieved once we get a clear ideology of things. To prove this concept, mankind has ever since kept trying to climb the steps of wisdom to achieve success. But where does this wisdom lie? 

A lunatic soul once took off to the Himalayas. His hand was filled with breadcrumbs of formulae to nourish his daily inspiration. But little did he know that the birds of the air were far better thinkers than his perverted mind. Keeping aside all strain, he hustled towards his goal, conquering over milestones and surpassing missile toes of misfortune. As he etched towards his peak, he noticed that life felt stranger and lonelier. He wished for companionship but found none. Hardened by the ever thirsty feeling for love, he rechecked his past to find that all he gained was worthless. Life suddenly felt like a breeze, and he was a stranger to the world around him. Desperate for redemption, he pursued towards the heights even against all odds. Wind and rain broke down his splendor, and tree roots filled his stomach. But the room for lust had died and snowfall had filled his life. Finally, at the end of time, he reached the top only to find himself a lonely man with no bonds, no more passion and a lost life. The end may seem bitter but this may be what you would expect from the saga of a Yogi.

Success can blind you, but never forget where you came from. A humble man who shows self-restraint is better than a proud boaster. Sometimes we forget that we are mere human, bound to humane errors and chased by unfulfilled dreams. The real successful people are those who can smile even at the darkest hours of their lives, with the courage that all will turn out for the good. My salute to such minds!
