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.

Independence

You can force someone to work all day long.But the efforts will be the result of compliance to the order rather than fulfilling engagement to work.

That’s why we hate to be managed.May it be an educational institute or workplace or home.We feel bound to rules with no room for flexibility.

Authority suppresses us when in fact autonomy must surround us.Only engagement and honest commitment to work can take us on to the path of innovation.Compliance will only help us survive,but not live life to the fullest.

Climb

There are two ways to make change possible – in both cases you need to become ‘big’ relative to the task.

Either you grow your knowledge and skill – become an expert at doing something.

Or you shrink the challenge – you divide your goal into smaller individual attainable actions.

Either way,you become more daunting than the task itself.Do not fear the task.Let the task dread you and follow your way instead.

Once you become capable or believe that you have become capable – your chances of succeeding increase significantly.

Moment

Working with the best tools brings efficient results easily.In the same way when you keep your mind and body healthy by eating right and thinking right,you are honing your body which is your tool to achieve your goals.

Sheer hard work is not wrong but it is stressful sometimes.You need to play the game of life smartly if you are to win in the end.Take care of yourself.Love and teach yourself.Don’t hesitate to take a break.

If you are to get the same thing done within the same time limit then try this or you will drastically reduce your whole lifespan and regret that you didn’t live long enough to experience everything.You will fail that’s inevitable.But if you accept that then you are guaranteed to win.

Invest

To become successful you need to do two things: (a) have an idea and (b) act on it.You can’t have success unless you have an idea to materialize.And you can’t have success unless you materialize your idea.

Both idea and action come at a cost.But the costs differ.Idea comes at a cost of experience.Action comes at the cost of money.You may take the risk and pay the cost.Or you may wait a while for the cost to change in your favor.

But both of them also come at the cost of time.A cost that is due on all of us.If time is a cost we are all eventually going to pay,might as well make the best out of it.

Flow

Plan everything.But don’t freak out when things don’t go according to your plan.Just get things done.Worry consumes too much energy and time.Both of which are limited for us.And you know what’s funny? Things don’t get done even if you plan every last detail to the point.It just gets done some or the other way if you persevere.That means,EVERYTHING GETS DONE,BUT NOT EXACTLY THE WAY YOU PLAN.Don’t sweat.Just do what you gotta do.Inspiration,motivation,satisfaction – all these things get spurred by action only.A potato doesn’t do anything.It just sits there.Hence it has got no ambition.No life.(I don’t mean to hurt your feelings potato! I love you!)

This is not a formula for success.It is a formula to face failure.You can only succeed if you accept failure as a part of your life.If you get scared of losing you footing,then how are you gonna climb up forever? Acceptance makes you stronger.Avoidance just brings conflict of identity.It makes you wonder who you really are because you never step out in the game and assess yourself.And if you don’t evaluate yourself,then how you’re going to grow? Isn’t that what we humans,or rather every living being has done since the beginning of time?
