I have learnt a lot of things most of them coming from inner voice and some due to the outer noise. Nevertheless it has been interesting and I would love to share them with you all my fellow sufferers (in Hindi HUM SAFAR) of this bumpy yet interesting drive of life.
Use mirrors (soul searching?) only to detect mistakes made in the past to avoid them again.
People will always be richer, more successful, and more beautiful than what we are. If we just keep comparing, life would be such an endless sob story. See where you are today and just analyze what can be achievable. For e.g. I cannot make it to the Forbes magazine of richest people in the world for sure, I am happy I could see the building where Forbes is located in
An interesting observation here is to space goals with the right time in between. Make it too short and you may miss the next one and if too long smaller problems may start filling in taking your eyes off the next big goal. This comes from keeping a safe distance between the vehicles in front, if too spaced you may have smaller vehicles filling in the gap making the maneuvering difficult and if too little you may hit the guy in front.
Tip no 4: Honk if you like, but nobody is hearing.
So for all the “silent spectators” who have moved mountains by just a word and all the eternal talkers, cribbers who don’t get their way ever, did you get it? Talk only when needed and you shall make a difference (hopefully positive!). Listening is stopped automatically with an overflow of words anyways, then why waste energy and lose the hard earned respect?
Tip no 5: Follow the right path and reach the highways safely
No matter how big or small each vehicle is on an average most do make it to their destinations safely. Reason? Every one is a special creation and is looked over by Big Brother. Do not underestimate yourself. You are special. Follow the general rules laid down and you shall be respected for what you are and can reach your destination safely.
God bless and drive safely J
