Nuisance of winner and loser !!!

From a daily wage labourer to a prime minister of a country, everybody is in a race, a race to prove himself, a race to defy himself, a race to emerge out better than yesterday. This is the essence of life , this is the motive of what we are going through.

This is a very nice stature of life, at least if considered an ideal situation. If we ponder upon the case of children we can see there is an enormous pressure exerted on them by society, family, relatives and friends. A child does not know what he is able to do, in spite of knowing the areas of opportunities he is pushed in the “death well” of performance where he has only one option i.e. only to get great results, if not then he is a loser.

Going through all this he grows up and like a rapid stream of water which carries with itself sand as well as gravel, symbolising the trend of society. If you are not doing this job, then you are not doing a job. Few marks are already decided, outstanding which you lose. If we were not able to achieve anything we try to put that onto shoulders of our descendants and without realising we make a failure out of them.

Only thing I wish to say is that the rule of success is to do better in a field which we like rather than wasting time, energy and zeal in what others like and we don’t. Even if you don’t make up to be a billionaire , you will be happy and contended that at least you have lived for what you believed for, in one life which is all you have got.

The PUSH !!!

“When a little birdie is born its mother should wrap in a very soft cloth, give it a very warming and comfy temperature and what not…” This is an expectation of most of us or better to say all of us if we are having humanity in ourselves but this not the law of nature. On reality ground, when baby bird experiences its feathers, the mother bird pushes the baby off the branch the number of times required by the baby to learn flying. This is the only reason birds fly , free from any harness, where ever they want to and whatever height they wish for.

Similar goes with the giraffe. When the baby giraffe is born the very first thing mother giraffe does is to kick it hard, again and again, until the baby giraffe stand on its wobbly legs and starts running. This hard rule of nature is to ensure that each and everyone is able to survive on its own. Initially it seems inhuman and rude but it is a major reason of successful life.

In our life similar conditions arrive often in which life through its circumstances give so much hardship that if we cope with same , we emerge out as champions. In these times we need that push, that trigger which makes us realise that what we are here for and what is more to be done in order to mere sustain. We should not pass these problems to our fate, rather take them on own shoulders and bring out a winner in our self.

Life Is Complicated

Life is not at all symmetric like the engine thump or the ups and down of ECG graph nor as can be explained by someone else. Your life is as unique as a fingerprint or an iris. Only you are liable and answerable to how to deal with everything going on in your life.

Usually we tend to ask someone, we feel better or more advance, the tactic to solve any problem or to face any hurdle in whereabouts of our life. We ask for and we get it because the easiest job in the world is to give an advice. We always have solution to almost all of the problem anybody could ask for, but we always fail to help ourselves.

In my opinion there is only one person who understands me which is me and no one else. If anybody else is giving any solution to your problem then it is his way or approach of solving the problem not yours. I am not saying that everybody is wrong but yes there are few people who can be taken into consideration anytime, like our family or our closest friends. They will always try to help you and we should be always thankful to them.

What I really want to say is that whatever problem you are facing, you are the only one to ace it because no one understands you better than yourself. Only you know how much you can stretch yourself and prove yourself. There is no doubt that in order to achieve something you need a proper guidance and that’s for sure a constant entity.

The only mantra is to go by your instinct, seeking approval from yourself and words of wisdom from the ones whom you can count upon. Whatever you do, whenever you do must be justifiable to your soul because unit of life is only “one” and that is all you have. In spite of crying over spilled milk, see that shining sun above.
