Don’t watch the clock; do what it does. Keep going. – Sam Levenson
Often people say me that I’m only a 21-year-old boy, but I talk as if I’m a saint or an old man who is sharing stories of his experiences and failures. A few of my teachers even taunted that I’m a boy with the small-mouth and big words.
Whenever they try to make me feel down by saying that I’m too little to have an impact on society, I laugh and turn to them with the words of Anita Roddick: ‘If you think I am too small to have an impact, try going to bed with a mosquito in the room.’
I believe that we all have right to change our destiny and to live a life we dream all the time. But so many people avoid working to lift themselves above their circumstances.
They fear to rewrite their own story. They are afraid to face the failures again. They don’t take the risk and mark a forever-full-stop before knowing how they can develop themselves with their mistakes and risks.
I know how difficult it is to let go the regrets and forget the mistakes we did in the past, but on the other hand, I also agree with a wise saying ‘Why to cry over spilled milk?’ Learn from it.
Yes, it is hard. I too had done a lot of mistakes and I am still doing. But when I accepted that disappointments, problems, and mistakes are the part of every process, I was relieved from worries and boosted up my life to a new level.
Now, no matter how much disappointments I confront, I wake up every day to only write my own story because I’m sure that every problem I face is a new challenge for me to bring myself one step closer towards greatness.
Another thing I noticed that when people face difficulties in life they begin visiting palmist and pay them huge ransom to find the solution to their problems.
If you are among those people who still think that your life is written in your lines of palms then I respectfully want to tell you that as a child, our fists were clenched. They have been clenched for so long that little creases formed on our palm.
Similarly, sermons, telling future by name and birth-date have nothing to do with our future.
As a student of spirituality, I request you to get rid of superstitions and find all the treasures of life within yourself. Always remember no one can predict the future and our faith is not yet written. It is only we who can decide our own luck.
I feel so enthusiastic whenever I read the words of Rumi that I’ve written down on the first page of my journal and also quoted in my book Superhuman in You: ‘Don’t be satisfied with the stories, how things have gone with others. Unfold your own myth. Before death takes away what you are given, give away what there is to give.’
It’s a right moment to start working on your life. Don’t get trap into the web of uncertain future. Learn from the past, prepare for future and live in the present.
Craft your life according to your own philosophies and experiences. Age doesn’t matter and can never differentiate people from each other.
Everyone has different stories and the only thing that matters most, when and how a man would stand before the universe to deliver his greatest speech.
