– It’s my parents fault. – It’s because they are rich. – Privileged ones got it right. – Luck didn’t favour me. – The government is useless.
These are the lines used by losers. Everytime you blame others, you take your power to succeed away.
Ask yourself “What’s stopping you & which skillset/knowledge can fix it!”. Try figuring out how to improve yourself. When you take accountability for yourself, you immediately gain the power to succeed.
Someone fell in love today. Someone was born today. Someone lived through something that could have killed them. Someone won back the love of their life. Someone made their parents proud. Someone survived. Someone healed. Someone let go.
Seven billion people, and some of us have just had the best day of their lives. Today may have been the very worst day of yours. But take solace and celebrate this simple fact. It wasn’t your best day today, but it is on it’s way, because we all get lucky in turn. (Not my words.)
(This video got nothing to do with the post above. I share what entices me, this National Geographic series on God & Mythology by Morgan Freeman is fascinating. It’s about the word APOCALYPSE. Watch it for fun & little bit knowledge.)
I’ve learned that no matter what happens, or how bad it seems today, life does go on, and it will be better tomorrow. I’ve learned that you can tell a lot about a person by the way he/she handles these three things: a rainy day, lost luggage, and tangled christmas tree lights. I’ve learned that regardless of your relationship with your parents, you’ll miss them when they’re gone from your life. I’ve learned that making a “living” is not the same thing as making a “life”. I’ve learned that life sometimes gives you a second chance. I’ve learned that you shouldn’t go through life with a catcher’s mitt on both hands; you need to be able to throw something back. I’ve learned that whenever I decide something with an open heart, I usually make the right decision. I’ve learned that even when I have pains, I don’t have to be one. I’ve learned that every day you should reach out and touch someone. People love a warm hug, or just a friendly pat on the back. I’ve learned that I still have a lot to learn.
I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.
I know people who graduated college at 21, and didn’t get a salary job until they were 27. I know people who graduated at 25 and already had a salary job. I know people who have children and are single. I know people who are married and had to wait 8-10 years to be parents. I know people who are in a relationship and love someone else. I know people who love each other and aren’t together. There are people waiting to love and be loved. My point is, everything in life happens according to our time, our clock. You may look at your friends and some may seem to be ahead or behind you, but they’re not, they’re living according to the pace of their clock, so be patient.
You’re not falling behind, it’s just not your time. (Not my words.)
(This video got nothing to do with the post above. I shared it just because i like this one. Very few will understand where this song is heading.)
Listen to that little voice inside yourself, like a loving parent or a good friend. This is the truest part of your soul, the key to your happiness. Sometimes thoughts, fears or other people get too loud and we can’t hear ourselves. Do what you need to do to get back in touch.
Today, follow what your heart tells you. Nobody but you knows what is right for you, so listen to your instincts.
(This video got nothing to do with the post above. Carl Ichan is a big name in the world of investment. You can call him investor, business magnate or corporate raider, nobody knows takeover game better than this man. Big fan & this trailer looks fun. Investment is so easy that nobody does it. Invest 1000 quids in S&P-500 every month, just that much puts you in top 0.3% richest in 10 years. Business & Investment are two best games of mature stable happy people.)
Mama once said; “We don’t just entertain friends/relationships outta fun, we build them over time, we respect them & we keep them. That’s why never accept or serve discounted garbage”.
I was in my teen days. I was still getting pocket money from parents. I wasn’t able to understand those heavy/right words. I thought my mum was talking about not buying discounted clothes/stuffs or wasting money with friends during weekend trips. Most of my friends know i hate discounted clothes now too. In fact, i don’t have a single piece of clothing from any fast fashion brands.
Coming closer to my 30, now i am understanding that she told me not to hangout with people who have discounted/cheap personality/approach/attitude/mindset, It took me almost 14 years to figure out the real meaning behind those wise words. Being a MAN means progression of understanding, knowledge, acceptance & virtue while developing better habits.
(This video got nothing to do with the post above. Watch it to understand how your shopping habits are shaping a climate & humanitarian disaster. There’s a reason I never buy clothes from H&M, Zara, TK Maxx or any store/brand with 50% discount board. I buy clothes which cost at least a hundred quid or more, and i wear them for ages. They stay with me because, I know I have spent enough money to buy them. And i fully remember how much I paid, I have a photographic memory. Fun part is, I still have t-shirts, jackets, hoodies & sneakers from my 8th grade & engineering college days which fit perfectly even today. FYI, I am a sneakerhead & my love for watches is something divine.)
Society loves to ingrain this idea in our heads from parents to professional figures to religious leaders to government officials that “You have to trust and obey all authority”. You clearly don’t have to follow this. We are led to believe that we must obey authority. As soon as you begin to question this belief with critical thinking, you’ll see how unjust an irrational authority can be. Although this isn’t always the case, you should never blindly follow or trust authority simply because they have power. If everyone followed orders because rules are rules society would never seek progress.
Think about the greatest historical movements would never have been possible without the people who rebelled against authority. Humans are profoundly social beings. We have an inherent need for connection, acceptance and love. And some people will do whatever it takes to gain social approval, the fear of being left out abandoned or lonely often pushes people to suppress their authentic desires. You probably know that forcing yourself to do something just because someone told you to it’s not a good decision. But it’s harder to be mindful when society tells you to do or believe certain things that go against your true intentions. We must question the beliefs and social norms that we inherited to be able to start on the path of independent thinking. Then we can live as our most authentic selves and make decisions that support our well-being.
Every single time there is some negative bullshit or conspiracy theory, it always goes back towards one group of people. Anti-vaxxer, anti-mask, global warming denial, flat-earth & it’s followed by some hundred others. It’s effecting the whole world because the news media is majorly controlled by west. Right now is the right time to show an amazing middle finger to the ones who were screaming “Kill Bill gates or Fire Dr.Fauchi”. Actually it’s not just the problem of USA. I was gobsmacked while returning from airport in my Uber when i saw people burning 4G towers with the belief in hoax theory of 5G waves causing COVID, you can’t even laugh to that level of nonsense/illiteracy. In such moments we need right people to show the light, every little effort counts no matter from where you are reading this.
God has given you a life & your parents have given you an identity, you got one chance to shine or whine. Few people may suggest there is an afterlife, but I am a strong believer of Karma. Your hell & heaven both exist in this planet looking at your deeds. Never do something which may hurt others purposefully. Always remember to cherish what you have in life and you will feel fulfilled. If you look at what you don’t have, you will never have enough.
Life has nothing “meant to be” in it, it’s all how you perceive. Go & do everything that’s within your capabilities, yes you got one shot.
Sometimes I look at my parents & see them making it happen so smooth each day without any chaos/conflict unlike others. The thing is they were/are only focused on HOW to make it happen, not whether to make it happen!! Their assurance in each other is that symbol of LOVE & RESPECT everyone should take a lesson out of it.
Everytime somebody talks about my EGO, I laugh at that person for a while before walking away. I am connected to some amazing set of friends since past 14-15 years to be precise & never switched anyone of them. We all are amazingly simple & beautiful on our own. I am the most emotionally detached in our group & my mates never make me feel less because of that. I am driven by logic out of choice & this will never change. We don’t have time to entertain EGO, it’s as simple as “be right or stay shut”. Nobody is perfect and we make sure to make sense in arguments in case any misunderstandings pop up. Life is fun because we are open, available, consistent & TRUTHFUL. That’s where we understand each other’s boundaries and make sure we offend less & laugh more while preserving everyone’s SELF-RESPECT.
One tiny thing to take notice, the only person who can hurt me is my mum. And because I ran away from my home in my teen days, even she is afraid to say something that I might not prefer to listen. She might have noticed my EGO because of my wrong actions. You can say, I am simply complicated. Whatever right or wrong I have ever done, I am always grateful to my parents till I breathe. I am not sharing the same house with them, but I am proud to say I am proud child of a intellectual loving couple. That’s all.
