be like water

<photo: winter at Yosemite National Park, USA>

water is an amazing thing. it covers 71% of the Earth's surface, and is vital for life as we know it. 60% of the human body is made up of water, and you will die from thirst first before you die from lack of food. water freezes at 0 degrees Celsius and when that happens, life stops. there's no doubt that water is life.

and life is like water. it's forever changing and evolving. we adjust to successes and we are shaped by our failures. life will come to an end when we freeze up, like when we become fixated on goals and targets. we freeze up when we believe that only the summit matters. we freeze up when we think that only the top of the career ladder matters. we freeze up when we think that there's only one measure of success, and that failure is the end of the world. failures help us with the flow, guiding us to our purpose in life. failures give life a meaning. be like water.


"Don't get set into one form, adapt it and build your own, and let it grow, be like water. Empty your mind, be formless, shapeless - like water. Now you put water in a cup, it becomes the cup; You put water into a bottle it becomes the bottle; You put it in a teapot it becomes the teapot. Now water can flow or it can crash. Be water, my friend." Bruce Lee
