Many people complain for their failures as DUE TO CIRCUMSTANCES BEYONND MY CONTROL.... One cannot accomplish anything without improving ourselves before setting right circumstances. I firmly believe in this. What are your comments?

I strongly agreed with you.Failures was NOT end of the day and its not the up most important aspects in any given cases and the most important things was that what we have learn during the process as to make any necessary changes/improvements to make things success next time. Self improvements was the on going process as well as the only way in our life to achieved any success!

The most important thing is one should first change oneself and then go about changing the circumstances, instead of becoming slave to the circumstances.

As we learn,we find that while everything may not be within our control we can do things to put the odds of everything going right onto our side.This comes from experience and knowledge which means self-improvement.If we stop seeking,we get lost.

You are right. Without self improvement and self realization, one cannot achieve higher and higher.

hi it is too much hard work to improve the circumstance when you are not involving your self in that circumstance, but if you restrict your self in one place and you don't entrrupt any one and you would re-strict your self in one place then at some extant it would be possible to improve the circumstances. but the circumstances which you would ask is of about your surronding environment then it is quit necessary to handle it other wise you would be the loser of the life game. because you need to coupe with the situation and you need to manage the situation's over there.

that's right that we can not blame circumstances with out improving ourselves but some times it gives some internal satisfaction to blame over circumstances and we feel quite satisfied by thinking that.i know i should'nt but some time i also want to blame circumstances not me.

I personally feel that the circumstances around a person are due to the actions he has taken in situations. Every situation in life presents two course of actions at least and whichever path you take is responsible for making your circumstances.So for the circumstances around you , you alone are responsible, so while changing yourself you can change your circumstances as well.

your circumstances are the consequences of the decisions you have made.Thus,you cannot improve your circumstances without improving yourself.Because you are the one who decide and not your circumstances are the one who decide.

No. I believe in improving yourself and the circumstances may improve or sometimes circumstances may not improve even if you improve yourself. However, circumstances cannot improve without improving yourself.

Yes I tend to agree. I think the problem is that we fail to act. So I am in this situtation, I don't like it. Instead of focusing on how we feel about the situation we should perhaps focus on what we can do about it. Accept it?, Ignore it? or change it?. 3 basic choices, the problem is we forget to choose.

Official things, there can be failures due to circumstances beyond my control, but not in personal life. If i take a decision to do something, i will do it even if i break my neck. I dont accept failure before trying my very best and more. I think i once told you how i put my daughter to nursary. So in this case (just like in a lot of other cases as well) i agree with you. Good luck.

You said it very appropriately. Not many people understand this fact that one should be correct before going out to correct others. Thanks for very interesting response.
