I am not perfect and it gives me peace. I have realised that I don’t have enough time in life to master everything. My ignorance about a lot of things keep my life interesting. At times, a little bit of embarrassment of not knowing about something is actually fun. I do attempt to be the best in a few things but take other things easy. After all, I am not attempting to win all the Golds at Olympics. A couple of them will be worth my life.
The eternal truth; we have to go. The timing unknown. What are you waiting for to walk your dream. What fear can be bigger than the pain of not even making a beginning. What is stopping you to mend your relationships with those who matter to you before its too late. What ego can be more satisfying than the happiness of walking together again with people you have lost connect with. You have got time. Some were short of it. You better set your priorities right.
It’s not about the difficulty in achieving. It’s about the lack of thinking big. Most people are unable to think big. They allow their fear of failure to dwarf their potential. It requires a high level of confidence and determination to achieve big things. Playing safe and getting satisfied with mediocre performance is a game winners don’t play. Get on the turf. Think big. Accomplish more.
We are the beneficiary of change. We live in a progressive world. We must contribute to keep it that way for the future generations to come. It’s our moral responsibility to leave this world as a better place than what we inherited. For this we must become an agent of change. Pick an area you relate with. Change the world. It may take time. May be more than a lifetime. Still, you must not give up. Be the change and then change the world.
The world is full of opportunities. Decide which one you want. Create your own vision. Once you do, go all out towards it. Remember, it will take discipline and focus to achieve your vision. If you want to go east, you must sacrifice the west. If you want to achieve one thing, you must let go of many other things. Commit your life to walk on that road which leads to your own vision. Don’t compete with others. Rather, inspire others by walking in the direction that inspires you.
Be crazy. Break the rules. Enough of serious stuff. Enough of safe play. It’s time you act funny. It’s time you kill the safety. Try different things. Pick your kid from school. Prepare your own meal. Change your job which you like for a lesser pay. Take your mom to a holiday. Don’t seek a definite result in every activity. May be, your perspective in life will change. At least, you will feel rejuvenated.
He achieved reasonable success in his life. Today he is worth much more than what he thought he would ever be, ten years ago. It was a tough journey. But surprisingly, he remembers none of that; the pain, the challenges and the frustration. To him it seems all so easy today. He has the luxury to take a break but he is focused on the way ahead. To embark on new goals. To take challenges head on. To start all over again. For him, stopping is dying. He can’t live on the glory of the past. He loves the excitement and uncertainty of the future. For him, putting himself to test every day is the essence of life.
I am capable of doing many things. That’s the whole problem. I try too many things. That also simultaneously. I know it too well that focus is a must to create something big and meaningful. Still, the urge to accomplish more doesn’t die. Also, the fear of not being able to make one thing successful makes me play safe. This results in mediocre performance and output. I am learning and mustering courage to give my full might to a single thing. May that day come soon
Living a balanced life can be superficial thing. Though I like a balanced life, at times, I love going extremes. A balanced life can sometimes become a boring life. To bring balance it becomes necessary to go extremes. In fact, the fun and advantage of balance is when you experience the extremes. A way to look at it is that when you do opposite extremes, you essentially balance it out. Some live a calculated balanced life. Some achieve the balance by testing the extremes in all direction. Define your own balance.
There are good guys and bad guys out there. Good guys are prospective and positive. They shun the limelight. The world runs because of them. Whereas, the bad guys feed on the good guys. They are negative, criticises the good guy and prefers the spotlight. They exist because of the good guys. They want to kill the good guys unknown that this will eventually eradicate their own breed. Till the mankind exists, they both will exist. It’s our choice who we want to be be.
