I was just checking out some information on the great personalities that have ever lived on this planet. After a long duration, I ended with only one thing. The thing which was common in all of them. A very crucial and forgotten thing. A thing that a few of us can see and feel.
The thing is called STRUGGLE.
Look at their lives. From Nikola Tesla to Albert Einstein. From Henry Ford to Steve Jobs. From Muhammad Ali to Michael Jordan. They struggled. They didn’t struggle for resources. They struggled to drive people crazy. They sacrificed their days so that people would live a better tomorrow. Again.
Let us sacrifice our today so that our children can have a better tomorrow.
-Shri A. P. J. Abdul Kalam.
They were focused. Sun rays can’t burn a piece of paper but when concentrated, they do. They knew what they were doing even though they were having bad breaks. Albert Einstein once said, “A man who can drive safely while kissing a pretty girl is simply not giving the kiss the attention it deserves.” And it’s so true. The focus is the game. No matter what circumstances you are dealing with. Be focused.
(Recommendation: Don’t kiss while driving)
Here’s another one. Nikola Tesla once made a true point. He said, “I do not think there is any thrill that can go through the human heart like that felt by the inventor as he sees some creation of the brain unfolding to success… such emotions make a man forget food, sleep, friends, love, everything.” This is called dedication. Everything else will feel secondary once you dedicate your soul to the work. The work that you only love. Be dedicated.
Look, if they did it, why can’t you?
They had 86400 seconds in a day, even you do. Then, what’s the difference?
The difference is, how you use your 86400 seconds in a day.
Mankind is the most powerful ‘thing’ I have ever seen in this galaxy. You have that power that can change the things around you irrespective of resources. Resources are not the problem. Users are. We are not lacking of resources, we are lacking of intelligent users. Give your life a meaning and don’t take your ideas and dreams to your grave. They are not yours. They are for humanity.
Make the shift.
Rough times will go leaving behind a powerful warrior with weapons that can only be forged during rough times.
