When I look back…

When I look back…

I see my kindergarten classmates dancing in the class when my teacher went out for a minute…

I see my friends throwing chalks at each other and having fun in the class…

I was made monitor of the class and I was very proud of my discipline…

When I look back…

I see my best friend having full focus on his crush instead of the blackboard…

I see my classmates bunking the class…

I scored highest and I was very proud of my focus…

When I look back…

I see my cousins going on trips to beautiful places…

I see my friends going for sports competitions in other states…

I was preparing for my college entrance exams and I was proud of my dedication…

When I look back…

I see my friends doing a lot of shopping…new clothes…new shoes…new watches…

I see my brother buying a new bike…my sister buying a new phone…

I was saving for my future and I was proud of my vision and control over my expenses…

When I look back…

I see my colleagues doing only what is required…

Few of them had a great work life balance…

I was the best performer and got multiple promotions and I was proud of my hard work…

Now…

I see all my friends settled… some rich… some okay okay… but they don’t have any regrets in life…

I see all my friends happy as they lived their lives in the present and not in the plannings…

I did great in school, college and office…

best student…best performer…best employee…best boss…but…

I regret now!

When I look back…

I want to play in class like others did… I want to be crazy and not monitor others…

I want to talk to the girl who used to greet me daily with a beautiful smile…

I want to go on trips with my cousins and on sports competitions with my friends…

I want to spend on food and travel… and not just save everything for my retirement…

I want to spend life with my parents… wife… and kids… and not invest my full time in work…

I want to live in the present… but the present has become past…

I want to relive my life… if I can…

When I look back…

I see no life…

If you are reading this… live in the moment… Future is important but not as important as your present!

Give time to yourself… to your family and friends… because I don’t want you to say the above lines when you grow old…

Stay happy and live long!

Single Rule For Success

Why live only once?

There are people who think that there is a possibility of rebirth, but no one can be sure about a second life! This is why you might have heard many times… “We live only once” or the famous acronym #YOLO – You Only Live Once!

Why?

Why is it so that you have to only live ONCE?

Almost everyone gets the chance to be a child, sibling, friend, partner, parent… but what else you can do so that you can live a life with many more mini-lives inside this single package!!

In my book Single Rule For Success, you will find a line where it is written to that you should do something, which will keep you alive even after you are gone physically from this world!

This line might seem simple, but there is a deep meaning hidden in this. You should not work hard so that people may remember you after you are gone, but you should work in such a way that you have lived your life fully as per your own will, and there is nothing left pending in your mind when you are taking your last breath.

Why only become sportsperson? Why not be a great singer too?

Why just become a great painter? Why not be a chess player too?

I know we have only one life, but why should we live it only once? Don’t be king of a single trade, be the jack of all! Don’t leave anything which you want to try out but something is stopping you from trying it! You are the boss of your own life, live it multiple times, learn, explore, live!

I’ve played a few roles and learned many things from them! I am just 25 and wish to live many more lives because it opens up my mind, widens my thinking and makes me a better person. Here are a few roles that I’ve played till now, at this stage called life:

I have been an Engineer – I didn’t just complete my Btech, but I also built a robot with my friends and we won the competition too! Me and my three friends – Pallavi, Quayad, and Shubhi tried a lot but the circuit was burning all the time. All our resources were almost finished but what was still left, was our excitement and craze to build the robot. We finished it without a proper body and temporary wiring and you know what happened! We won! That was a great day for all of us!

I have been a Manager – During my MBA, I was the President of Management Student Association. My main work was to solve issues among the classmates and the committees. I learned a lot from this role. I learned how much patience and calmness is necessary to think practically and take the right decision. I learned how to be a good orator, to gain the attention of everyone and make them understand the situation.

I have been an Entrepreneur –  This is one of the toughest roles I’ve played till now. It requires all the positive words you might have seen in a dictionary! But to make it short, the most important traits that you should have are – patience, passion, vision, practical thinking, time management and resource management and positive attitude!

I have been a Writer – This one is the recent one! One day I thought to share my experience with all the young minds who are confused a lot… they don’t know what they are doing and what they want to do… after two months the manuscript was ready. I designed the cover myself and without investing a single rupee, I published it independently at Pothi.com! This role taught me the value of words. A single wrong choice of word can affect the reader and that is what I never wanted to happen! So, I chose a very simple set of words which can be easily understood by anyone.

Apart from these, I’ve played many small roles too, and I know you would have done the same! But, did you ever go back and thought what did you learned from it? How did it help you move ahead in life or was it just a waste of time? Think and give an answer to yourself!

I have to live many more roles too so that I can expand my creativity and imagination. I wish all the very best for you! Do, let me know about your own success stories, it keeps me motivated!
