A book of 365 days – Just one is enough

AUM

I closed my eyes and looked back in time, and saw a girl waiting for someone to hold her hand. There came someone and hand held her hand, it was her father. It was so satisfying. And suddenly the scene changed , it was glory all over. The girl had grown up she was successful , working hard she had gained so much success , it was unbelievable , it was incredible. She had a purpose , a purpose she started living for , a purpose that gave meaning to her life. Helping anyone in need , anyone in trouble.

Not many of us actually have a purpose in our lives , a purpose which we could live for , something that gives meaning to our lives. Why is it so difficult to find one. The question always boggles me. It did boggle me 27 years of life until i found my passion and purpose.

Sometimes i find this world like an unbalanced equation which needs a catalyst or something extra to balance it. In the middle of our daily chores we forget the fact that we like something , we love doing something. But we dont , someone tells me i dont have time , someone tells me i dont really need one.

We keep living this life just like an unbalanced equation , forgetting the fact that we only have one to live. All this came to my mind when i read this quote : “life if lived properly , then just one is enough”. Yeah why not just one should be enough , till the point we are doing what we want to do.

As this unbalanced equation continues to exist , a point comes where everything is coming to and then the memories of the lifetime flash in front of our eyes. And then we ask ourselves this question : “Was one enough ?” , unfortunately the answer most of the time is no. Because we never tried balancing this equation.

I only want to say when i come to an end : One was enough  for me .

A book of 365 days – Luminosity of Lost dreams

AUM

We all have dreams and quality of dreams , that we wish would come true. But , how when and where , we absolutely have no clue about it. And, so we are lost in it. Lost in chasing our dreams. But , we forget on thing while we are chasing our dreams is , the quality of our inner abilities. We are chasing mindlessly. In order to chase our dreams we have to defy everything , come what may , in front of us . Defy. We have to take that one step extra to achieve.

Dreams are big , when they are able to give us nightmares , if we are not able to achieve. There is always a thin line between what effort we are putting in to achieve the dream and we have achieved. This is where we need to defy the gravity and fly high. Without caring about who thinks what , and without thinking as to what will happen if we are defying things. There is always a thought in our mind that , whether are we going to achieve it or not. This what we need to defy and fly high.

And i did read somewhere that “Between the Luminosity of Lost Dreams and the Nebula of Nightmares…lies the space where we all have to defy Gravity, try to fly.”

When you try to achieve one thing , there are 10 people who try to pull you down. Try to discourage you and that is when you loose the luminosity of your dream. The excellence and the brilliance is lost. It is when you defy this gravity , that is when you make your dreams come true.

Dont loose it, hold on to it.

A Book of 365 days – Two sides of a coin

AUM

We all know whenever we flip a coin, there is a 50 % chance that we see one side of a coin. While the other stays hidden, this other side makes our lives at times uncertain. It can decide fate of a game. You win or you loose. Its all a probability. Humans have two sides at times. We get to see only one. If we are lucky , we get to see the good side and those who are unlucky are dead duck. The surprising thing is this other side of a coin comes in front of us accidently , but we are not able to see. Why ? I dont think so even i have the answers. But, yes this other side of a coin always has something for us. May be to learn. May be to experience something. May be to decide something.

This is very subjective, which would depend on what the other side has. Depends on whats in store for us. Good bad ugly ? That depends on what comes in front of us. We have got to leave somethings on time. Or the best thing is why not to turn the coin and see what was the other side. This helps us to form a perception on a situation , person , or anything else for that matter, This would not harm us  thats one thing guaranteed. Some times in a situation it is required for us to see the other side of it. It is just like a coin , we have to turn things to see what was the other side of it . Because what keeps revolving in our mind is a question ?

Why ?

Or may be what ? When ?

And we need answers , and in search of this we have got to see the other side of it. So flip the coin. And see what was the to other side of the  story.

Hope i made some sense out of it.

A book of 365 days : For the love of my passion

AUM

It was a usual day for me at work , and more over a weekend approaching . The day when no one in this world wants to work. “Work” yes this word sounds very monotonous these days. We all are working, for the day of the month when get that nice amount into our salary accounts. And you know what i am really happy with amount that gets into my account every month. But , in past few years i was not able to understand that what i was doing is some thing i was suppose to do , or was i meant to do this. I was loosing out on it. I had not found my passion.

Imagine folks , you are currently working on some thing which is not your passion. But , what if you find your passion and that passion gets you money into your account every month , that too at an increasing rate. Isn’t that amazing. Most of us don’t have enough motivation . Our Supervisors set the same old goals and we end up saying at the end of the year that i did this and that blah blah blah.

Look back and see , what you say have you actually done it. Quite a lot of us would have monotonously achieved it. But , its not our passion. I realized mine with this simple webpage that conveys my words to the entire world who is reading this.

Thanks to technology which has contributed a lot to my passion. While i am typing this , i am not speaking a single word , but my words would go cross the boundaries barring all barriers.

We say for the love of god, I say for the love of words, for the love of writing , for the love of my passion. For the love of everything in this world.

My words are my god , my words are my love , my words are my passion . My words are everything for me.

So for now this is Shwetal signing off from this place. Hast la vista.

Enjoy everything for the love of yours.

A book of 365 Days – Sometimes holding on to things is so important

AUM

It was yet another day in a book of 365 days. Some times experience of a day is as long as , not a week or a year, but a lifetime. We hold so many things in our plate, which life has given us. But, not all the times we are stable. At times we tend to loose the sight. Today, i felt i was loosing out on things. I felt as if things were swaying away from my hands. Some times you don’t understand why things are like this in your life. But, the only important thing that remains is, holding on to them. Holding on to the time. Frustration, anger , revenge and furious thoughts cross our minds.

Today you might even feel like killing someone who has done bad to you. Which might be even justified, but the after effects wouldn’t let you live the way you wanted to. So the only thing you want to do here, is holding on to the time which is there, not loose the balance . Which doesn’t mean you have sit like a coward who is hiding behind a wall to dodge a bullet. But, patiently waiting for the right sight and hit it one go. 

When you have a gun in your hand , you are suppose to shoot. But, not in the dead air. But, at the right place. You have to hold on to the time.

We all are impatient.We want everything now. A friend of mine once asked me he wants to earn a million in a year. I said ok , do it. But he wanted to do that in much quicker time that anticipated. At times we want things to happen quickly , i am not surprised.After all , we all are only humans. But, the point is how much patience do we have to wait for that money to come to us. I bet a million dollars on this , we don’t have much .

The best thing to do is , make your effort for the money you want to earn and just hold on to things. It will to you.A car has 4 wheels , all of them are bound to align with each other for the entire vehicle to hold. That’s it , it overly becomes important for the vehicles to remain align and hold on to things. 🙂 . I might sound stupid at times. But , i am sure i make sense.

Never say die

AUM

Its been close to a year that i started this blog. When i started this blog , it was a website with a blank page on it. I kept thinking as to what to write, absolute no clue. I just started writing like an ameature with no idea as to who is going to read it. I had loads of doubts in my mind, whether i will succeed or not. This one single thought hampered me a lot from writing . Each time i sat to write something on this blog but never got any ideas as to what to write. But i still had one thing in mind and that was i want to write something. Anything that comes into my mind. Whatever thought unique or redundant but i want to write. I never wanted to give up.

And then there came a quote in front to me “Every champion was once a contender who refused to give up”. Neither i wanted to give up. So i decided to write something on this blog.  I designed the page beautifully and placed some links on it.  After completing my first post i decided to show it to few people. And what i got was them was a ridiculed reaction. None of them appreciated it. It was a complete negative reaction which would demotivate any person in this world. So was I , But i never wanted to give up.  I was willing to do this. Though something very different from what every one else around me did. I had a vision for it.

success_blog_full

I asked myself this question “Why do i succeed ? Why should i succeed? ”  The answers came straight , its because i wanted to do this , i wanted to progress. I did not want myself to back with fear, insecurities and doubt.  Even if i fail i wouldn’t give up. I wanted to rise , rise with success not with boast. But with success. Even if i was going to be beaten to fall to my knees , i wouldn’t give up , i would return. I want to come back. Not with vengeance but with confidence to succeed. I know i would not be 100 % perfect but i would get better and better and better with time.

I will not die , i will survive. I will fight against the odds.

Now a days its a rule , if someone wants to do something creative and good , he would be ridiculed by people around him. Telling him that he wouldn’t succeed in what he is doing. But remember one thing, ” A critic never creates a masterpiece, a person who stands against the critic does.”

So i say never say die. Stay immortal , we all are immortal. Keep fighting.

My Salute to Sylvester Stallone

AUM

This is one of the SADDEST stories ever told in Hollywood. His name is Sylvester Stallone. One of the BIGGEST and Most famous American Movie superstars. Back in the day,Stallone was a struggling actor in every definition. At some point,he got so broke that he stole his wife’s jewellery and sold it. Things got so bad that he even ended up homeless. Yes,he slept at the New York bus station for 3 days. Unable to pay rent or afford food. His lowest point came when he tried to sell his dog at the liquor store to any stranger. He didn’t have money to feed the dog anymore. He sold it at $25 only. He says he walked away crying.

Two weeks later,he saw a boxing match between Mohammed Ali and Chuck Wepner and that match gave him the inspiration to write the script for the famous movie,ROCKY. He wrote the script for 20 hours! He tried to sell it and got an offer for $125,000 for the script. But he had just ONE REQUEST. He wanted to STAR in the movie. He wanted to be the MAIN ACTOR. Rocky himself. But the studio said NO. They wanted a REAL STAR.

61213_535983169784399_886577640_n

They said he “Looked funny and talked funny”. He left with his script. Afew weeks later,the studio offered him $250,000 for the script. He refused. They even offered $350,000. He still refused. They wanted his movie. But NOT him. He said NO. He had to be
IN THAT MOVIE.

After a while,the studio agreed,gave him $35,000 for the script and let him star in it! The rest is history! The movie won Best Picture,Best Directing and Best Film Editing at the prestigious Oscar Awards. He was even nominated for BEST ACTOR! The Movie ROCKY was even inducted into the American National Film Registry as one of the greatest movies ever!

And do You know the first thing he bought with the $35,000? THE DOG HE SOLD. Yes,Stallone LOVED HIS DOG SO MUCH that he stood at the liquor store for 3 days waiting for the man he sold his dog to. And on the 3rd day,he saw the man coming with the dog. Stallone explained why he sold the dog and begged for the dog back. The man refused. Stallone offered him $100. The man refused. He offered him $500. And the guy refused. Yes,he refused even $1000. And,Believe it or Not,Stallone had to pay $15,000 for the same,same dog he sold at $25 only! And he finally got his dog back!

And today,the same Stallone who slept in the streets and sold his dog JUST BECAUSE he couldn’t even feed it anymore,is one of the GREATEST Movie Stars who ever walked the Earth!

Being broke is BAD. Really BAD. Have You ever had a dream? A wonderful dream? But You are too broke to implement it? Too tiny to do it? Too small to accomplish it? Damn! I’ve been there too many times!

Life is tough. Opportunities will pass you by,just because you are a NOBODY. People will want your products but NOT YOU. Its a tough
world. If you aint already famous,or rich or “connected”,You will find it rough. Doors will be shut on You. People will steal your glory and crash your hopes.You will push and push. And yet NOTHING WILL HAPPEN.

And then your hopes will be crashed.You will be broke. Damn broke. You will do odd jobs for survival. You will be unable to feed yourself. And Yes,you may end up sleeping in the streets.It happens. Yes,it does.

BUT NEVER LET THEM CRUSH THAT DREAM. Whatever happens to You,Keep Dreaming. Even when they crush your hopes,Keep Dreaming. Even when they turn you away,Keep Dreaming. Even when they shut you down,Keep Dreaming.

NO ONE KNOWS WHAT YOU ARE CAPABLE OF EXCEPT YOURSELF! People will judge You by HOW you look. And by WHAT You have.
But please,Fight on! Fight for Your place in history. Fight for your glory. NEVER EVER GIVE UP!

Even if it means selling all your clothes and sleeping with the dogs,ITS OKAY! But AS LONG AS YOU ARE STILL ALIVE,Your STORY IS NOT OVER. TRUST ME.

Keep Up the Fight. Keep your dreams and hope alive. Go get it.

Like and share if inspired. Lovely day people!
