Sadhguru’s Ultimate Advice For Students & Young People – HOW TO SUCCEED IN LIFE


The simple thing is this See.. If your joy, your sadness,
your happiness, your misery is determined by something
or somebody around you the chances of you being
joyful in your life is remote. For every one of you
your life is precious, isn’t it? It’s a precious life If something is precious, where do you want to invest this life? Into what do you want to
invest this precious life? If this is a worthless
life throw it somewhere. If this is a precious life, what do you want to
invest this life into? If you look at it this way you will find something
truly worthwhile to do. If you think in terms of how to earn a living? How to get this kind of thing,
that kind of thing? Then you will do something silly that you will regret for
the rest of your life. Most people are a regret. That’s why they’re going around joylessly because they’re not doing
what they want to do. They are not creating
what really matters to them. They’re doing something for a living. Earning a living is not
a big deal for a human being every creature, every worm, insect,
bird, animal is earning their living, isn’t it so? With such a big brain, what is
a big deal about earning a living? See, your ability to do things
is not because you want to do things I want to do something is my desire. Desire is just an intention an intention won’t make things happen, an intention will only set direction, still you have to make the journey. We become too goal-oriented. Goal-oriented means we are interested in the consequence, but we are not interested in the process. Process is an end in itself. If you are absolutely
devoted to the process something will come out. But now we are interested
in the consequence not in the process. This goal-orientedness, I want to
get there, I want to get there No, I want to win the race See, if you treat life as a race If you have to win it, you have to get to the finish line soon. You want to? If you get to the finish line ahead
of all these people you won the race, you know what the finish line is? We’ll be negotiating where to bury you. If you.. If you go outside in the garden and try to catch an ant who is born here, was grown up
here and probably will die here If you try to catch him he’ll say, “Okay, crush me if you want” is it so? He’ll do everything to protect himself. He values his life, isn’t it? Very much so Tiny little creature
that we may not even notice we may step on him without
even seeing him, unfortunately, but he values his life immensely. Does he or no? He’s got spark. But you a human being At least on this planet
you’re the peak of evolution physiologically at least What the most evolved creature
on the planet means is, It has the most
complex neurological system and it has the highest level
of cerebral capability. That means you can think,
you can remember you have memory You have a very vivid sense of memory and a fantastic sense of imagination. An ant doesn’t have such
a vivid sense of memory nor does he have any great imagination he has some but he has a presence of mind
about the life that he is living. Because the education systems that you’re going through right
from kindergarten level is such.. That it is about everything except you Somebody’s PhD in tourism,
somebody’s PhD in biotechnology. Somebody’s PhD in something Nothing about this how does this function,
there is no attention at all. A human being exists in three times. He lives because of
the richness of his memory The present experience is important and how vivid is your imagination
for tomorrow is very important. Right now the problem is, these things have all gotten mixed up because discipline of faculty
has simply not come If you are postponing something you’re obviously doing something that you don’t want to do If there is something
that you really want to do will you postpone it or prep on it? Do you see somebody is waiting
for someone they badly want to see. Only ten minutes in the ten minutes
they look at the watch 25 times why they want to prep on it? You’re doing something
that you don’t want to do so you want to postpone it I’m asking, “why are you doing
something that you don’t want to do?” No, because if I do this
I will get that, I will get that that’s not the point. It doesn’t matter What is your level of intelligence? What is your level of capability? Introvert, extrovert this, that, doesn’t matter. Do you have the courage and commitment to make the possibility into your reality? That’s all the questions What is it that you’re going to create? This precious life,
where are you going to invest it? Are you going to invest it
in something that’s truly worthwhile? Or are you going to throw it away? as a worthless thing this is the important thing because what you call as my life is just a certain amount
of time and energy, isn’t it? As you sit here your life
is ticking away or no? You are young,
you may not be thinking like this, but actually it’s ticking away. What is ticking away is not time,
what is ticking away is your life so this energy that you call as my life, how are you going to invest it because.. If you are doing
something truly worthwhile it gets over before you know what happened. Only if you’re doing something
worthless, it feels like a long life Something that happened 10 years
ago, you can still suffer, isn’t it? Something that may happen day
after tomorrow, you already suffer. What happened 10 years ago
or even 10 days ago does it exist right now? Does it exist right now? No What may happen day after
tomorrow does it exist right now? No, so if you suffer.. Something that does not exist should we call you sane or insane? Success means what- ‘I made it’. What did you make? I bought a house site That’s an achievement I got a job, I made this much money It’s a very constipated way
of looking at life. I want young people
to look at it in terms of.. How we can do.. Something that cannot
be done in this lifetime. Oh, what will happen if I don’t fulfill it? If you, if you worked incessantly And still at the end of your life
the job is not done It doesn’t mean you’re a failure It means you had a great vision. That’s what it means.

  1. If you work incessantly and still at the end of your life the job isn't done it doesn't mean you're a failure it means you had a great vision. 🙂

  2. 1:40 powerful statement… your possession of your ability to do things is not because of your wants or what you want to do or what you desire…

    2:19 another powerful statement… if you are absolutely devoted to the process then something will come out…
    My addition to this –> this something is the art of life , creativity in expression, true sense of being a full blossomed life 🙂

  3. Family is important. Money is important. Sometimes we need to adjust with what we have, because our family depends on us. Sometimes, going after what we love doesn't work, and we need to be flexible. We have to support our family, so doesn't going after what you need, kind of selfish?

  6. Birds and insects and other forms of living things freely earn their living but humans especially women who is married have many restrictions to do what they want to do …so obviously there will be joyless life around we can't simply break or come out of all our barriers and simply live life for ourselves

  8. If anyone reading this comment of mine Plz answer 'I don't know where to invest my life ..?? I really don't know what should I do ..?? I yet to find my interest ..!!' Plz help ..!!

  9. when a person has a bag full of responsibilities and their is nobody to support that person, he have to do something that he don't like even he can't even find out his whole life that what it is that he likes or what it is at which he is good. How can he live his life happily? should he leave his responsibility or should spend time in search of his passion where his familiy's life is at stake. would that be justified?

Sadhguru Sir speaks about only which we really feel that is important for us. Thankyou Sir for your wonderful video. Also the english you spoke Sir even i can't talk .

  15. If you want to do something with life, it procures utmost committment to turn out the delusion into reality.
    If you want to spend it worthless, for that too you need immense conviction to screw up the cognition that you had….

  30. Here are all precious words of sadguru..
    Whole subtitle at a place

  31. Or from 5:46–6:09, you may be postponing something even if you like it simply because something else you don't like is taking your time one way or the other, so you may feel that you will do this first(something you don't like) so that you can be fully focus on what you like.
