Go, Chase Your Dream !!

While there can be lot of negative stuff in the newspaper now a days, it really depends on what your eyes are searching for. You will typically get what you are looking for.

I read the following story in today's newspaper

""In a past life, I used to make a living as a consultant, managing large projects," says Vandit Kalia in his blog. In his present life, Kalia is a scuba diving instructor and the founder of Dive India in Havelock, Andaman and Nicobar Islands, India. Life ended, and then restarted when Kalia turned 30 in 2003. "I was looking to do something different , and fell in love with the Andamans when I went there on a short diving holiday in 2000. The following year, I took time off work and spent six months out of that year diving there. I went back to work but kept thinking about the islands. Finally, I took the plunge and quit the corporate world and started a diving centre," he says.
Watching new people discover the underwater world — seeing them with big smiles on their faces when they come back to the surface — is a thrill that keeps Kalia going. While at heart his passion remains the deep shipwrecks of the North Atlantic, underwater photography, especially of nudibranchs (sea slugs with extraordinary colours and striking forms), gives him the most pleasure these days."

Well, Kalia chased his dream and achieved it. We all come to this world to carve out our own journey. Many of us stop short of taking that plunge that Kalia had the guts to take. What stops most of us? Our responsibilities? Our family? Or just that we are afraid of trying something new or trying and failing. 

Would Kalia be earning more than what he was earning earlier ? I do not know, probably not. Would Kalia be more happy than he was earlier? Most probably yes. Once your job becomes fun, it is no longer a job. If you do what you are passionate about, it gives your immense happiness. And ultimately, if you can remain happy doing what you love doing, then why do you need more money? Ultimately, most of us try to earn more money to ultimately buy happiness only. We try buying happiness in physical comforts - be it latest gadgets or cars or bigger houses and villas but unfortunately, the happiness is inside all of us while we are trying to look at it outside. Some call it as a "state of mind", and some by other concepts but the fact is that it is inside us.

If you are worried about your family and responsibilities, make sure you take care of them by being financially free before you take that plunge. But do plan out your life so that you take the plunge some day. Do not leave your dreams and passions for any excuse in life. If you start thinking and planning your dreams, you will surely find a way.

We spend our entire lives chasing money, chasing for our children's future, chasing for a better and a bigger house, chasing the latest gadgets and cars...but we do not seem to be satisfied or completely happy in spite of achieving all this. It is not worth wasting your life chasing anything that does not give you true happiness.

If there is anything worth chasing in life, then go and chase your dream that is inside your heart for long, something that brings a smile to your face even if you think about it for a moment with closed eyes, something that rejuvenates you, something that gives you a feeling of bliss, something that never gets you tired, something that you truly love.

Go, Chase your dream..do not let your life wander away... God has created a way to chase your specific dream..go find the way !!!
