“Take up one idea. Make that one idea your life; dream of it; think of it; live on that idea. Let the brain, the body, muscles, nerves, every part of your body be full of that idea, and just leave every other idea alone. This is the way to success, and this is the way great spiritual giants are produced.”
― Swami Vivekananda
Papa, you were worried, if I would be fine!
I said, Yes, I’ll be. It was just an ambition…
A dream, I wasn’t very passionate about,
Probably I lacked the vigor in my aspiration!
I said, it was perhaps not the time for me,
I assured, I would fight when time comes,
I made a choice; to let the life drive
Until I gather the thrust for a deep dive!
Now, is it the time? I ask myself today,
I think it’s around, the time to ascend,
To be an eternal name in human history!
Yes, I’m sure, this is it, a time of victory!
As per the words of Heraclitus, ‘Change is the only thing that is constant!’ The same principle is advocated in one of my favorite books, ‘Who moved my cheese’, by Dr. Spencer Johnson.
Flexibility is a quality that’s either inborn or can be acquired through experiences of life! It may or may not impact you directly if you do not adopt but it affects the society as a whole.
In corporate world, everyone is becoming more conscious about developing ability of quickly embracing Change. When it is not possible to satisfy the hunger of corporate employees for vertical growth, industry is trying to compensate by providing opportunities in other functions facilitating lateral growth. Personnel, who are not willing for this Change, find themselves becoming redundant as time passes.
Change is certain and is becoming important in all faculties. Take an example of Sportsmen of current age. Earlier, Sport was like an art form, where individual abilities counted a lot! Today, the skill set includes qualities like, how you perform as a part of team, the interpersonal skills you have, and most importantly how you inspire fellow team members to be always on the pursuit of new strategies to win, for Change!
Technology is bridging the gaps like never before; there are mergers and acquisitions taking place across the globe. Time zones also don’t matter, be it business or life as a whole! In such a dynamic scenario, the sustenance is for only those who start looking for a New Cheese station noticing the symptomatic signs of Change in coming!
‘Sometimes you feel, “This is too much. I can’t handle any more.” I tell you, you will never be given anything you cannot handle. The water will come up to the nose, but it will never go beyond.’
– Sri Sri Ravishankar Guruji
Has it been ever experienced by you? Have you ever thought that you couldn’t take it anymore?
As per wise words by Sri Sri Guruji, it’s going to be taken care of, just before we are about to surrender. It’s astonishing, but so true! As experienced personally by me, on several occasions…
Why does it have to happen in such a manner? The answer is, to test our resilience. Each time we surpass the earlier tolerance levels, we learn about our capacities anew. Moreover, we tend to outperform under pressure, at many instances. The one, who buckles, is naturally subjected to the elimination process. Hence, we feel like living on the edge every moment.
We look up to Heroic figures with Supernatural powers to live our dreams! While so, unknowingly we are training our minds to accept that all this is improbable stuff & no such deeds can ever be performed in reality… Even so, have you ever tried to understand how could you possibly solve an unbeatable riddle while you were left with the only option to retain hope blended with few positive actions?
This seems to be too idealistic to believe, right? I invite you to join me in an exercise here. For rest of the week we shall make a note of seemingly unbelievable events those are happening around us! Maybe you can mention about it in the comment section below or post about it on your blog or just keep it with yourself… what really matters is that we reinstate the childhood faith that there is nothing as such that is called as a Limit to human ability!
Let’s do it together…
Wish we are all blessed to be able to extract the nectar of life!
