Eagerly waiting for “The Hindu” in the morning
Reading it as if it’s not less than any holy book for us
Yeah, sounds strange to those who read newspaper having tea just to flip pages
But that way won’t work for us
We need to watch the details and some editorials do demand to read between the lines
Those fancy vocabulary used sometimes makes no sense
As they say when things become a necessity you have to do it even it sounds non sense
Our friends spend time browsing stuffs that are amusing and mesmerizing
And we searching the newly formed policies on google and then memorizing
Sometimes it’s the scheme that is in news
Sometimes it’s the recently launched satellite
Sometimes it’s the blockchain, IOT etc..
Sometimes it’s the conventional methods practised in ancient history
Many of us may forget the name of our own pet but we won’t forget the name of the most endangered species on this earth
When others complete the T.V. series watching all the episodes in a day then brag about it
We are busy watching the lectures on Unacademy and You tube so that reading books don’t seem boring
This exam don’t care about your background
It brings all of us on the same platform
You may be an IIM graduate or an IITian
You may be a doctor or working in a most reputated company earning in lakhs
This exam has got nothing to do with whether you were a topper or didn’t do academically well in your school days
It provides equal opportunity to each and every one to crack this exam provided you should be ready to give whatever it takes to make it happen
Sometimes you may have to go through the arduous journey to achieve the most beautiful zenith waiting for your arrival
You might have read so many books, watched many movies which teach lessons on life but the real lessons are always learnt from your experiences only. It’s a natural human tendency that humans generally don’t take advice from someone else but if we ourselves go through the same situation then only we understand the value of the advice that someone once gave us because that person wanted us to learn from their mistakes. In this post i would love to share some lessons which i feel are worth sharing with my readers:
People listen what they want to hear: whenever you are having conversation with anybody at any point of time always keep in mind it’s not at all necessary that what you are talking is being understood by the person you are having conversation with. Very few people actually care about what’s happening in your life. Most of the people only listen to things which makes them happy or are doing them some sort of benefit. The only solution to handle this is never expect the other person to understand things from your end otherwise you will surely be disappointed. You just share whatever you want to so that the things don’t keep on troubling you again and again. And on a personal note i would rather suggest you to write every thought on the paper and later throw it, tear it or burn it. This truly works. If you are a blogger or a writer you are really at advantage. You can express your emotions by writing poems. Believe me writing is the best therapy to make you calm and later you can get back to the most important tasks.
Your parents are your true well wishers: we all have friends. They all are good but at one or the other point of time in life even the friend whom you are very close to may act selfish. But, your parents will always be there for you whenever you would call them. This is selfless love. Never forget to spend a quality time with your parents.
Keep your interests first: always remember you can’t please everyone on this earth. For example, if the world would have not adopted the new technology methods thinking it will not be accepted by people who follow traditional methods then we won’t come across the fourth industrial revolution. Similarly in life too do what’s right for you without worrying what the world think. At least “your happiness is totally under your control”.
Never take any action when you are angry, sad or too excited: whenever your mind is feeling extreme levels of joy or sadness or your anger is at the top then please do yourself a favor. Never ever go and react immediately. Take some deep breaths , relax, bring yourself back to normalcy then act. If you really want to avoid regrets in your life then you must always keep this point in mind.
Believe in yourself till your last breath: wherever you are, whatever may be the situation you cannot come out of it unless and until you believe in yourself. Your parents, friends, spouse, etc..can only encourage you or can provide you with the external motivation but at the end it’s only you who has to take action. You cannot succeed at anything in life unless and until you have a firm faith in your abilities. Believe me you are so much more powerful than any circumstances of your life. Even if you are alone on the path the divinity will be there to guide you only when you believe in yourself.
Cherish every moment: all of us have very few days left in our lives. Always remember to shed your love in the lives of people who truly cares for you. Don’t forget to thank those who are always there for you. Be happy and spread the happiness in your ambiance.
In today’s world of social media platforms and surrounded by number of smart phone devices we spend very less time with ourselves. We are either waiting for the notifications to pop up on our mobile phones or waiting for the comments. We know what interests our friends and family members. We know the aspirations of the people in our contact but very few of us can answer to the question: “What is my purpose or passion?” The reason is “we never question ourselves”. We waste time in overthinking, worrying, thinking about the past or worrying about the future but we never do the right questioning.
You know when you fall in love with someone you have a natural tendency to be curious about the other person. This curiosity helps you to know more and more about each other and as a result the bonding of the love grows stronger. Similarly, learn to spend more time with yourself. Write your thoughts down, start writing journal where you can keep records of your goals and hobbies and track your growth. Being alone with your thoughts gives your brain a chance to wander, which can help you become more creative. Believe me you will start discovering the hidden potential in you if you spend at least 20-30 minutes a day in solitude. Spending time alone can give you a chance to ensure there’s a purpose to all of your hustling and bustling. Quiet space provides an opportunity to think about your goals, your progress, and changes you want to make in your life. You will embrace every bit in you. Solitude is the need of the hour in today’s world of competition and social media. When you’re by yourself, you can make choices without outside influences. And that will help you develop more insight into who you are as a person.
If you are still breathing today then you are definitely alive for a purpose. There’s lot of power in your thoughts and what you think becomes your reality.So, what are you waiting for. Start discovering yourself.There will be times when “things just seem worthless” but during those times you remember my words:
“Life is a game, it’s an adventure…you are here to live this game and not to leave the game”
The human brain is an immensely powerful organ
It provides you with the courage to face your fears
And can also compel you to choose the “flight” response and RUN
None of the battles in the battlefield are won without winning over your “MONKEY MIND”
Responding and reacting when angry is more easier than listening patiently and remain kind
But what most of us forget??
We forget that the mind is an organ in “OUR BODY”
It is like a tool and we should not allow it to rule
If you think you are a slave to your mind then you are definitely making yourself a fool
Whether it’s about catching the flight or train in the last minute….
Whether it’s about beating the exam stress….
Whether it is combating the stage fear….
You cannot succeed at any of them until and unless you make your mind clear
Always remember the water when still seems so calm
But the same water when filled with waves and tides can cause mass destruction too…
When my feet trembled and my heart was scared
When I was on the road full of pebbles and thorns
You, became my strength
You gave me the courage to face all the ups and downs
You held my hand to help me get up again when I fell down
Many times I feel there’s no one around except the solitude..
Then I hear your voice “I am there”
You are the first thought in my mind the moment I wake up
You are part of me now
You keep me alive
Now, I don’t care about anything else on the earth
Only I know how much you mean to me
The only thing that matters to me now is “You” – my goals, ambitions and my dreams
