Energy

You want to achieve a goal? Surround yourself by people who want to achieve similar goals.Energy is contagious.Their wish will flow through you and your wish will flow through them.This transfer of energy is how you will sustain throughout.

Resistance

Those who complain don’t bring change.

Those who bring change address those complaints.

No matter how noble of a choice you make,you will always face some resistance from others.

Pay attention to critique to improve your choices and not to demotivate yourself.

My Plan

When people look towards you and expect you to follow the norm,don’t look back at them.

Just look towards a future in which you tried to be different from the rest with no regrets.

It won’t guarantee that you’ll win or lose but certainly it will let you experience playing by one’s own rules.It’s your life and you have the biggest stake in it so live it the way you want.

Foundation

Parenting is not about shaping the child.It is more about creating an environment in which the child shapes itself.

So you don’t get to choose what the child should do or shouldn’t do.You just lay down the ground rules and let the child decide the path it wants to take.

You can teach your child what’s good or bad,what’s desirable or undesirable,what’s right or wrong BUT don’t tell them that this is an absolute reality in which they have to live.

True freedom just doesn’t come from the right to choose.One should also have the knowledge about their choices because then only they can think as a person in their own right and choose the path they want to follow.

This may sound like it’s only possible for the privileged but not really.Living in an environment deprived of choices is a downside but it allows one to create opportunities for oneself.It’s a refreshing experience in itself.

When you can afford things,you get to choose.When you can’t afford something you get the opportunity to create.People don’t create inventions because they don’t need them.They create them because they feel their lives are lacking something and add meaning to it.

Not having something is not necessarily a disadvantage.It is an opportunity to create something with your own hands.On the other hand,having almost everything gives us an opportunity to explore more and learn to create.

Balance

Life is about pluses and minuses.As long as you have even one more plus than minus,you win.

P.S. Concerning yourself with other people’s pluses and minuses is a sort of minus in itself.Worrying about why others have it all rather than building your own stuff is a real downside.

Skill

Don’t judge people by what they can’t do but what they can do.

You cannot always find a ‘know-it-all’ but you can always build one.

There is a difference between having an ability and having a potential.

Ability is like a dish.It’s already prepared.You can improve it by adding more things to it,but the foundation will remain the same.

Potential is like raw ingredients.You can create something never seen before.Making a unique beginning may lead to an unexpected end.

It’s all about a balance of time and effort.No matter how much effort you put in,if you don’t have the time to create,you are likely to fail.
