Hard work does not go unnoticed, and someday the rewards will follow

I began my weekend morning at 9 AM and immediately after I freshened up, I went to the kitchen to get done some long overdue chores and prep up our lunch. At times, I have infinite patience to do small stuff which would usually be put on the back burner when I have a busy, tiring day. Continue reading

The Size of Your Audience Doesn’t Matter; Keep up the Good Work

audience

There has been a lot of conflict between my practical mind and my heart regarding the concept of “Being acknowledged”. I believe that that acknowledgement doesn’t matter. If it makes you feel good inside; you should do it irrespective of the fact that somebody is watching or not. Then sometimes my logical mind would argue about “Quid Pro Quo” – “Something in return”; though not monetary or in big things, but a small word of encouragement would be more than enough to fulfill the “Social”, “Esteem” or “Self Actualization” Needs as defined by Abraham Maslow. This confusion was seamless and endless.

Although I seldom work for praises or appreciation, I or for that matter any one; would love being recognized.

Yesterday evening I was quietly reflecting upon my journey in the “Corporate World” post college life, my journey as a “Blogger” and “Painter”. I admit that I like being recognized and admired.

Always Dream On.. Here is WHY ??

dream-quote-george-lucas

“I have a dream…!” Most of us are familiar with these famous words, which became the name for the ten-minute speech calling for racial equality and an end to discrimination by Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. on August 28, 1963. Maybe the reason that these words still have such a profound impact on so many is because we all have dreams—dreams for our own lives, dreams for our children, dreams for the future—all kinds of dreams. Some of the dreams we secretly hold, we may reason away and set aside as unrealistic notions— But what if our dreams could come true?

Have you ever seen someone without hope, someone who doesn’t have any expectations or any aspirations to move forward and do something different in life..?

Hardly anyone..!

There is immense power in your dreams, your anticipations and in your aspirations to have the world you imagine and to shape your destiny.

Each of us have dreams. Big. Unplugged. Larger than life. So, what is it that sets apart some gems in the world from the rest of the world ?

We always imagine, why someone reaches the heights of success so easily and why others don’t.
Why some people do an altogether different thing that we might not have ever even imagined.

The only answer to almost all questions is a Dream…

A Dream to become someone nobody would have ever imagined.
Dream to live a life no one has ever encountered and a dream to design their destiny with such beauty that reality also gets a fragrance of it.

It is their belief, their determination & their passion to chase their dreams. They dreamed, but with their eyes open. They worked hard to achieve their dreams till their brows ached with sweat. They worked relentlessly, dared to see the world from their vision & choose to stand against the world just because they had belief in their dreams.

Whether you see someone who is selling tea and now the Prime Minister of India, or a women who had almost gone deep down in her family life and again made a come back & carved a history in boxing : Mary Mom, or a person who was selected as a junior policeman at a mere salary of 8000 INR, who is currently the most favorite cricketer of all times MS Dhoni..

The man who started his early career working in a petrol pump in Aden & dreamed to own his own petrol pump, went ahead to build the largest single location refinery in the world. In the words of Dhirubhai Ambani :

“Our dreams have to be bigger. Our ambitions higher. Our commitment deeper. And our efforts greater.”

Before Walt Disney built the “Disney empire” he has today & created “Mickey Mouse”, he was fired by a newspaper editor because “he lacked imagination and had no good ideas.” Walt Disney propagated:

Walt disney

No one is born intelligent or born dumb. Life purely depends on how we make choices, how we forecast our destiny, how we want our reality should be and how beautifully we dream the path of our life.

Life is truly, what you dream to be !!

So Dream…
Because a dream can change your life…
Everyone doesn’t get chance…

Dare to Dream and chase your destiny….

Lastly, to conclude with these beautiful lines :

“Jo tujhe jagaye
Neendein teri udaaye
Khwab hai Sachcha wohi

Neendon mein jo aaye
Jise tu bhool jaaye
Khwab woh sachcha nahin.”

Dream On
