Live your life !!

Now a days, it seems that going through Facebook every day morning is more inspiring and much more healthier for your mind than reading newspaper or watching morning news over television. I have made this as my routine now. Since i am used to reading in the morning, i connect to Facebook rather than grabbing the local newspaper.

There were two distinctly unique quotations referred by two of my close friends on Facebook today. Though these statements are unique, still they carried a bondage which attracted me enough to share the same with all of my friends.

1. Success doesn't come to you..you have to go and get it (courtesy : Rashmi R Das)
My Facebook friend shares an example of a typical restaurant where most of us pay to get our stuff, and not only we have to pay, we have to get up and get our order, rather than the same being delivered to us.
Life is so much like that. You can get whatever you want out of life provided :
a) You are ready to pay the price, and
b) You are ready to get up, make the effort, take the pain and strive towards it.

Most of us keep waiting for the opportunities to land in our laps...which does not happen in most cases. Opportunities would come and knock, provoke us to get up and then will see if we are ready to make the effort to get up or not. 

So, if you have a dream, get up my friend. 
Take the first step. This is the time.

2. Do not live someone else's life (courtesy : Arvind Khurana)
Though this was shared by one of my friends, he gave due credit to the owner of these lines (Steve Jobs). This is how it goes: 
Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma - which is living with the results of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of others opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.
The unfortunate reality is that each one of us is stuck in our own rat race. We have forgotten to listen to our inner voice, we have stopped appreciating and chasing our dreams, we have stopped thinking about doing what we really want to do in life. We want to be with the crowd, perhaps because we feel that is safer. But the fact remains that it is only if we follow our heart and have the courage to take decisions, even if they are against the popular sentiment, we would be happy and peaceful.

I am leaving you with these 2 messages that have shaped my life as well - from an engineer in a rat race to a financially free man to an author to a social activist. 
I am taking steps every day that helps me chase my dreams. Are you ??
