People often get confuse in ‘A Good Human Being’ and ‘A Successful Person’. The truth is, a good human being can always become successful but not the vice versa.
Parents always tell their children to be good in studies, get good grades and get a good job to make good money. They often forget to educate their children about the basic etiquettes and manners in life. We see parents wanting their children to be “someone”, i.e. to have a status, position, qualification, tag, etc. But, in the process, if the need of being a good human being is given secondary importance, the child turns out to be “someone’’, but not a good human being.
If a person is best teacher or surgeon and is arrogant, no one would like her/him. So the efficient people should also be affectionate enough. So, under these circumstances our successors, i.e. young people and children should be encouraged to achieve great heights, but at every stage of life we must remind them that the value of life lies in being a good human being. The foundation stone of a good human being is laid at a very young age.
Being a good human being is a lot more than what others seem to give you credit for. People don’t understand that people who have good hearts and are just always there for other people, have to deal with a lot of negativity because people tend to associate kindness with weakness. But actually, it’s the complete opposite. When you’re a good person, you are the strongest type of person there. You are the one who people confide in whenever they need comfort or advice. You are the one who your friends come to whenever they have good or bad news. You are the one people rely on.
At the end of the day, a good human being is the one people will always be thankful for because their lives wouldn’t be the same without them.
