Making Right Decisions!

“ A man’s success is mere reflection of his decisions”.

The thin line between the success and failures is the “decision making ability” of a person. We all always face a dilemma while making certain decisions. As a coin has two sides all situations have two decisions. Always there will be “two roads diverging in woods”. We have to decide the road, the side of the coin.

After days of thinking and pondering and even experiencing I believe no decision is wrong. People make decisions according to their circumstances and so the results are the after effects of not their decisions but their circumstances. A person makes decision on basis of his knowledge and his experiences and as experiences differ, a person’s decisions will differ.

A terrorist; we consider him a beast. We curse him for killing so many lives. But just for a second lets compare terrorism with Mahabharata. In Mahabharata Shri Krishna asked Arjun to kill his brothers and teachers because they were doing it to save Dharma(righteousness). Shri Krishna said “dharma ko bachane ke liye adharma hoga”. Same way a terrorist is infleuenced by his AKAs to spread terror by saying him that they are doing it for protection of Jehad. So in that sense even a terrorist is not wrong.I am not supporting terrorism but I am just making a comparison.

The point is that the man’s decisions are influenced by his situations and circumstances. No man is born devil. A thief is not born thief. He had to steal because he was not able to feed his children, he had to steal because he was not able to fulfil his basic necessities.

So there is nothing like right decision. We have to make our decisions right. The only care we need to take while making any decision is that :

We need to make sure that the motto behind the decision is good.

Steve jobs dropped out of the college and started learning calligraphy which he loved doing. At that time people would have cursed his decision to drop out but when Steve Jobs made his first Mcintosh computer he used those calligraphic fonts in that computer which he learned after dropout. He made his decision right by hardwork and perseverance.

While making decisions keep in mind that god is watching you and also make sure that you are ready to abide by your decisions and not change it in midways otherwise you will never reach a goal and will get strangled in your life.

“Think thousand time before making a decision but after making a decision never give a second thought to it while following your decision.”

People first think about safety before making decisions because they fear the outcome. They fear the response from the society.

Mahendra Singh Dhoni is one the best captain of World cricket because of his decisions. He just follows his intusions and makes decisions but he also is never afraid to take blame of the failures of team. That makes him so great.

You made a decision on basis of your circumstances which no one knows about so they are no one to judge you.

Don’t make decisions because of someone else’s opinions. Don’t fear to take blame of the decision when it comes out wrong because a day will come when you will exceed and at that day you will realise that you have learned from wrong decisions. No person or society will be able to challenge you.

Believe in your intusions, your Karma, your deeds. If they are right and you have a good motto all decisions will eventually turn out true. There will be mid-way failures just to show you the correct directions.

BE FEARLESS AND HAVE A GOOD MOTTO; EVERY DECISION YOU MAKE WILL EVENTUALLY BENEFIT YOU.

BE FAMOUS BE HUMBLE

Dosti ke naam ek article!

Yeah, its friendship day today.. The day for which we youth wait for a year. Celebrated every year on the first sunday of august month. But the question is DO WE KNOW WHAT FRIENDSHIP IS IN TRUE SENSE??

Its a non-blooded relation but sometimes even worthier than a blooded one. A relation which has no definition. A relation with no expectations, only love and affection. Something which can not be described by words but just felt through heart and soul. It is an universal relation with no boundaries or differences.

Everyone have friends in their life with whom they can share each and everything-happiness, sorrows, joys, problems etc etc.. But friendship is just not about sharing, it is about to stand beside friends whenever they need us. It is about solving their problems as if they are ours. Help each other in each and every trouble. It starts from sharing toys and must end to graveyard. Friendship is about having wonderful moments with your friends and sticking to them no matter what you do or what goes on. Everyday I stick up to everyone and every person who is my friend.

What makes a good friend?

The one who supports you no matter what you are upto. You can trust them.  A true friend never puts you down or hurt your feelings deliberatly. They love you because they chose to, not because they feel like they should. He/she always enjoys your company. Being trustworthy and willing to tell you truth, even when its hard. Is the one who sticks around you even when things get tough. Makes u smile when you can’t. Will cry with you when you cry and is always there to listen you.

 

Friends will come and go in your life, but more important than how long a friendship lasts, is that a good friend will love you for who you are. The way you can tell the sign of a good friend is by looking at the actions they take –big and small – that show they care.

Smiles and hugs are a great way to show friends that they’re not alone, that you’re there for them, and that they are important. Even if you guys aren’t nearby each other, making an effort to keep in touch through facebook, emails, texts and calls will show your friend you are there for them.

 

I know everyone knows all these what i wrote above but still there are people who make friends just for benefits. So this one is for them.

 

At the end, a very HAPPY FRIENDSHIP DAY to all of you on behalf of THE PARALLEL UNIVERSE.

Getting out of the comfort zone!

 

 

People say “GRAVE IS THE ULTIMATE DESTINATION OF A BODY” but the right way to live life is living with the soul and not with the body. Because the ultimate destination of soul is not grave but it’s heaven.

I was greatly inspired by the renowned dialogue of the movie “ANAND” which was as follows “babumoshai zindagi badi honi chahiye lambi nahin”. It has a very simple meaning but lot of us don’t implement it our life. We want a life full of comforts and minimum of responsibilities and that’s why we end up living a very boring life.

We normally long for a life in which after our retirement we can sit in peace with a cup of coffee in one hand and a newspaper in other. We blame our education system that it compels us to mug up things but the truth is that we mug up things because we find it much less easier to mug up things than remembering them after understanding them. We never wish to refer any other book other than textbooks because we are studying for exams and not for knowledge.

We never wish to come out of our comfort zone. Also at our work place we are often reluctant to take responsibilities which compels us to come out of our comfort zone. “One who waits for perfect situation to do work never gets the work done because perfect situation is never going to come”. We dream of a life of Mukesh Ambani but we don’t have the courage of taking risks like Dhirubhai Ambani.

That’s why “life is not the breaths you take but it’s the moments that take your breath away”.

The movie zindagi na milegi dobaara inspires us to do the things which we are most afraid of and overcome the fear.

The dialogue “ main udna chahta hun daudna chahta hun girna bhi chahta hun bas rukna nahi chahta hun” was so good to hear but do we ever take risks not being afraid of the failure? The answer is NO!

You have to make your life large by doing things you always wanted to do when your body and health supports you. You can’t dream of doing skydiving at the age of 60 nor can you climb Everest at age of 58 so as I said you cannot wait for conditions to become perfect. You have to do things by getting out of your comfort zone.

Life doesn’t come with a user manual so there is no right way to lead your life. Only thing you can do is living it as you wish.

We often compare our successes and failures with our peers and that ultimately makes us live our life in a way they are living. Once we start living someone else’s life we lose our unique identity on the planet. Little failures start hurting us. We stop taking risks and finally live a life that’s not worth.

 

Fear- forget everything and run.

Fear- face everything and rise.

Its up to us how we approach fear!

When there is no pain there is no gain. We have to take the pain to gain something rather than sitting and waiting the life to give us opportunities.

LIVE A LIFE THAT TAKES YOUR BREATH AWAY AT EVERY MOMENT BECAUSE ONLY THEN YOU WILL REALISE THE VALUE OF EVERY SINGLE BREATH.

WHEN OPPURTUNITIES DON’T KNOCK YOUR DOOR BUILD ANOTHER DOOR AND TRY ONCE AGAIN.

Determination means the “one last effort” we give when we are not in a position to give any.

So take risks because IN THIS AGE LIVING A LIFE WITHOUT RISKS IS THE BIGGEST RISK YOU ARE EVER TAKING.

Sometimes living life knowing that we are going to die tomorrow helps you a lot because then we don’t waste time behind futile things like money, position, reputation etc. , but we start doing things we always wanted to do.

Always ask yourself this question:” Will I do this same thing if it is the last day of my life?” If you don’t get your answer for few days believe me its time to change your style of living.

 

“ITS YOUR LIFE-MAKE IT LARGE”

 

With this again I am signing off. Eagerly waiting for your valuable feedbacks and suggestions.

IF YOU WANT TO ACHIEVE WHAT WAS NEVER EVER ACHIEVED YOU HAVE TO DO SOMETHING THAT WAS NEVER EVER DONE BEFORE.

You must have seen the advertisement featuring naseerudin shah in which he says “AIM FOR GREAT NOT GOOD” because good is just not good enough. Only the man who dreams big can achieve great.

The world today salutes the great because they have achieved what no one else have ever dreamt of. Satisfaction is a word when misinterpreted kills more dreams than anything else. We are advised by our parents in our childhood to be satisfied with what we have and don’t demand for extra but today if we want to excel we should have that cutting edge that something extra.

Satisfaction solely means that we should not be hurt seeing other’s success rather we should cherish what we have achieved but that doesn’t mean that we should stop once we achieve what others have achieved. The people I think who are satisfied with the 8 hours job and own house and car with a small family and never ever give in the extra effort to achieve anything else are rather not satisfied but they either doubt themselves to take responsibilities or are lazy to take them.

In India even if you are “ONE IN A MILLION” there are 1241 people like you so you can just guess the competition out there.

You cannot be first in the race which everyone is running. So you have to take another race and reach the heights. You have to take the “ROAD NOT TAKEN”. You have to do something unique something original. YOU HAVE TO BE THE BEST IN SOMETHING.

That “something”  has to be your passion, the thing  for which you can sacrifice anything-your meal, your sleep, your comforts everything. By passion I mean the thing which is of your interest and not that stereotype works which people or your society consider good or which can earn you a car or a bungalow.

Never work for earning material things because that is not what is going to come with you to your death bed. The things that come with you to your graveyard is your name, your respect, your character and your inner satisfaction.

As I said earlier about the man who works 8 hours for a car and a house, by that I don’t mean that you should work for bigger cars and houses. That is greed not passion.

Passion  is something that makes you work day and night for your goals-the goals which are to make you unique in world. IT’S THE RESULT OF YOUR INSANE HARD WORK WHICH WILL GIVE YOU SATISFACTION.  And results doesn’t always come what you expect but if your hard work is sincere I bet that results will be hard to believe much better than your expectations.

Always dream high. There are neither any barriers to imaginations nor to the extent of your hard work. Show the world what one can achieve if he is just focused .

Here I will like to quote APJ Abdul Kalam “ IF YOU WANT TO EXCEL TIE YOURSELVES TO GOALS AND NOT PEOPLE AND THINGS”.

No one ever dreamt of 100 centuries in international cricket but SACHIN TENDULKAR achieved hence the world salutes him.

People of India never expected that India will have independence but some freedom fighters like BHAGAT SINGH and GANDHIJI and many more achieved that and they became immortal in hearts of people.

No one knew about America in 14th century but Christopher Columbus never gave up on his dream of discovering a new land and he succeeded.

Never did anybody  expect  Narendra Modi to be the prime minister of India but he worked selflessly towards his dreams and goals and today everyone has the word NAMO on his tongue.

KHUD HI KO KAR ITNA BULAND KI KHUDA KHUD BANDE SE PUCHE BATA TERI RAZA KYA HAI

LIFE IS NOT A BED ROSES BUT WE DO POSSESS THE TALENTS OF COLLECTING THE ROSES AND LAYING THEM ON OUR BED AND THEN SLEEP ON IT.
