The day is beautiful with this cloudy weather and rainfall...
Lets add value to beauty of the time passing by..
by making a very valuable investment in the most bankable asset..that's YOU!!yeah..better than any material possession in this world is owning YOURSELF..that is knowing and standing by yourself at all times..coz you are really special,sweet!!
Today let's see how we lose our beliefs that we are UNIQUE..
First let me tell you how we all know that we are special in our childhood.Every one pampers us , no matter what!!they unconditionally love us..but as we grow up,people want us to be good at something they dream of..usually academics..Ofcourse, all of this is done by our family with the best of intentions for us..They love us,so they advice us,as our real well wishers..
But grow up further, and you won't be surprised to see many of us living for the so called "society" which mostly comprises of people with whom we don't interact with for years!!and strange what an impact they have on us!!
Education and employment are chosen on the basis of their popularity and image, rather than interest..The fear of what will society say stops many people from pursuing what they really love in life...
But in this thought process we forget something..If we pursue our passion, if it is unconventional, we will be criticized by many..but if we succeed in that, the same people will appreciate us..So follow your heart, take risks and see where your passion will take you..PASSION LEADS TO PERFECTION..it's easier to perform better when you love what you are doing..I will quote some examples, coz the aim behind writing these articles is to learn good things from our fellow human beings..It will not cost us anything ,right??
COOKING:-An unusual task which is usually pursued as a hobby, not as a profession by many in India..But look at Chef Sanjeev Kapoor, Tarla Dalal, Adithya Bal(Chak Le India, NDTV good times),and eating!!Eating has become a great career option for Rocky and Mayur on Highway On My Plate Series, now these hungry guys came up with a Book by the same name..and don't forget Ritu Dalmia for Italian Khana..!!
Globally we have Nigella Lawson, who touches the cooking ingredients as if they are the most precious in the world..!!Rachel Ray, Keith Floyd, Kylie Kwong, and many others have made a real rich living of their passion called cooking..!!
TRAVEL:- Travelling is not just a hobby for these world famous people like Ian Wright, Samantha Brown, Anthony Bourdain,Bobby Chinn, Andrew Zimmern and Megan McCormick..They do what they love the most and get paid for it!!
WRITING:- Chetan Bhagat left his highly paid Investment Banking job to pursue writing, which fetched him millions and movies are being made out of these stories!!All his four Novels have been best sellers..!!Jhumpa Lahiri achieved laurels at a very young age for her writing skills, Arundhati Roy got a Booker's Prize..JK Rowling..Do I need to say something about this poor single mom who couldn't afford toys for her baby once??Harry Potter gave her millions of dollars..
ANIMALS:-Steve Irwin, Jeff Corwin, Steve Leonard,Bud and Carry, Sir David Attenborough,Nick Baker, Jane Goodall were amply rewarded for their passion for animals..
Apart from these, many social workers ,entreprenuers, and unconventional artistes believed in their dreams, it was a very tough road to thier dreams, and when they achieved, the same criticizers turned into their fans!!!
Tomorrow is Sunday..so sit back, relax and think what your real calling is..May be you are in the right place, think of ways to perform better in the field..and if what you love is different from what you do..take little steps to ensure that you will do what you want!!
MORAL OF THE DAY:- 90% OF THE DETRACTORS, RUMOUR MONGERS ,NAY-SAYERS ARE THE ONES WHO PERHAPS HAVEN'T COME FACE TO FACE WITH YOU OR YOUR CAPABILITIES..THEY DO NOT PAY YOUR BILLS..DO WHAT YOUR HEART SAYS FOR YOUR GOOD,..JUST THINK "I WILL GIVE MY BEST TO WHAT I DO"!!
