Sisyphus

Those who don’t know him might be thinking who is Sisyphus and what is this trivia about him. But, more about that later. Right now allow to me say that although I have done several posts related to self-improvement, health and other things on my blog

Towards A Better Life https://towardsabettterlife.wordpress.com/

this is the first time ever I am trying to write a trivia.

This led to me think about what I should write on, when the idea came from a comment Anand made on my Magic Monday post yesterday. He said, “It’s an inspiring post. Have you heard about the myth of Sisyphus?” To which my reply was, “Thanks for your appreciation. Yes. The photo given is related to the myth.”

But, sorry Anand I had searched about Sisyphus in Google only after you had asked me about him. That is when the idea came to know that there may be others like me who know nothing about Sisyphus, the man behind the popular image of a man pushing a boulder up a hill that was in my Magic Monday post. Hence, I am writing this trivia related to the Greek myth about Sisyphus or Sisyphos who was the king of Ephyra. He was punished for his self-aggrandizing craftiness and deceitfulness by being forced to roll an immense boulder up a hill only for it to roll down every time it neared the top, repeating this action for eternity.

But wait, before ending this post I would like to say that there is a great moral to the story. Sisyphus teaches us to never give in to circumstantial disappointments or try to escape from the failures, rather accept failures the same way we accept our achievements. And most importantly, no matter how much we lose in our quest, we must never back down till we fulfill our potential.
