In what sense the life is good ..? When we give our best to this world and also do our best at personal level..? Why sometimes we forget our deepest desires.? Why we chose the path in just a rush to live a life ..?Is it the meaning of our life which Bhagvaan (God )gave us ..?
This post is for all those who try to excel in all the fields of life. Its a big task and to be efficient and to do all the things.To conquer a lot in our lifes, one has to create a good balance between the main task( means the main work which gives us food or feed our children )and on his side skills( hobbies or else).To follow a passion is easy to say, because in order to live a life in a more secured way special experience and knowledge is required.
When we are born to a middle class family , it’s the duty for our parents to keep us on the right track and to make us more focussed towards studies .But in order to let our passion take breath till our death, we have to make a balance between the both , in other words we need to think differently.
Let me explain why the tiltle is so catchy and how does the idea came in my mind ,what were the things that keeps the many youngsters to kill there passions ..!!
First what it gives to me and what does it took from us —
On reaching to the point, what I observed is that chosing both the things and hustling in between the two. is not a cup of tea . because our mind is not multifunctional. To reach heights we need to focus on one thing at a time . Giving mind extra pressure to excel in both of our fields is not a worthy game. It keeps us away from both, but to keep a balance is necessary .
What does my hobby of rapping gave me ..? Why I’m different from croud and Why does I have my own ideas and perspective towards all things..?these are the basic things which side passion gave to me –
- gave me Identity
- gave me happiness
- increases creativity
- gave me perspective
- make me more connected to people
- prevents boredom
- *and the pleasure of recieving love from all those people who love my performances whenever I kept my leg on stage *
But trying to keep legs on the two boats is difficult , All it required patience and dedication. But more over, it brings joy that is much more than money or any other things in this world .The feeling of fullfillment gave inner peace .
As to born in a mediocre family we need to have a secured future therefore our parents usually scold us , they are-
‘hamaare baap hain von ‘( famous saying in countries where hindi is used meaning that ‘he is our father’ generally used to jear people)
they know much more about ourselves and also of this world .They have more experience than what we think we have .They had already passed through all the ages which we are passing now . And most important they are the only one who truely want good for us. We can trust only on our parents in this world blindly. (till now what I found in my life).That’s may be the reason that they scold many of us for following our passions. But to some extent they are true in all sense .
I found many singers who are against there parents of sometimes they even they try to abuse there parents for that. Its not fair, may be the mindset of such cheap artist is just bullshit.This is wrong and I fekt very sad for this atlast they gave you birth we should respect amd accept them for whatever they had done to us.
Being mediocre is good , many great men told us that before.Because when we are mediocre in any field we come to learn from both the top and bottom .This is place where we see the toppers also we see the people who are below us . This makes us more aware what actually the conditions and cases are..? We are able to observe the things in three ways .It just acts as the third mind as listed in the book “Think and Grow rich “by Napoleon Hill
Many times, we try to copy the toppers in case of studies, but what we get in hand is dissapointment . It only makes us feel guilty for either not getting good marks or not getting in the toppers list.It also sometimes makes us feel inferior to those who are above us.
to the second face of the coin what I found that –
I’m far better than them ,the feeling of not holding the first position gets neutralised by the rewards that I recieve whenever I go to stage. I have a inner feeling of accompishment that atleast what they are doing is meant for them and what is meant for me is what I m doing.This also is important because –
“when every body becomes extraordinary than no one is actually estraordinary”
as mentioned in the book ‘The subtle art of not giving a F*ck’ by ‘Mark Manson ‘
And in this way I am always good in my eyes, and they are good- ‘kitaabi kidaas‘.Also ,what I found that what teacher told us (talking about the studies ) in any class we rarely remember them, but what we can easily remember is our past performances or whenever we had done something much more than studies .Or win any competetion for example.
We feel connected to our innerselves when we remember of the things that gave us happiness at one time like -performing on stage or winning a race , or winning any competetion ,what I think is even participation is also far better than being the ‘ kitaabi keeda’. And sitting like a dumb in the class seeing the faces of others and just sitting only…..
I’m not against those students or studies.Eduation is must and it should be our priority in all aspects of our life. The education only makes a person accepted by the community.It teaches a indivdual how to live a life in a more ethical and cultural way. This is the same thing that what our religious teachings teach us. Only because of good education we are able to change the world or to bring a change in this world .
Thus coming to the end of this post I would llike to summarise by saying that we have to keep our studies a priority but also we should not kill our passions or hobbies for the same . As they are our Identity and they gave us the meaning to our existence much more than that what studies give . Also the rewards that we achieve from the people whom we present our skills is much more valuable than any other thing in this world .it can’t be purchased from the money .Further more it adds value to our life …. 🙂
