Siddhartha Gautama was amidst those people who had renounced the world a couple of centuries before Christ. He began his search for all answers and hurt himself by living on a grain of rice, sleeping on nails, among others. Yet, he didn’t achieve what he wanted to. But one day, when he gained his thought, he summarized that all our answers lie within.
Similarly, all the solutions to our problems lie within. Self-motivation is the best way to move forward, instead of looking towards outer sources which can disappoint.
