Have you ever disappeared out of someone’s life? Someone so important to you, but now also someone who doesn’t know if you exist or not. Just going out of their sight, and never returning. Not having the slightest hope to see them ever again, and it doesn’t even seem like they are interested to see where you are and what you are doing either. Not interested in getting in touch with you ever again.
You know they probably check on your profiles every day and see how you are doing today. They check on you to know what are you up with these days, but they won’t agree that easy and you know it. It’s all about the ego someone uses on you to get their purposes served, or rather just get their egos satisfied.
You are not there around them, you are not even in their radar, you are nowhere to be seen, you have just vanished out of their lives completely.
The once protagonist of their story has died a slow death at the hands of the writer. It was once when you lead their lives and they loved what you used to do for them and what you promised to do. You were working on your promises when they thought that you aren’t. And when the protagonist fails to deliver, when the protagonist fails to live up to the promises, the story is bound to fail.
And now you know, or rather just think, it was all a game. Because you are still here, trying to fulfill your promises, while the writer already has a new protagonist.
Someone who might be promising the same things as you did, or something better. And they will stay the protagonist unless they fail to deliver.
All of us have some goals in life. It could be going to the gym daily, starting your own firm, starting a website, becoming a social media influencer, ranking up in a competitive video game… anything! We have a path that we have created for ourselves to follow. A path that might lead us to where we want to be. Even if it doesn’t, we will get a little closer every day and could change the path a little to get there.
We have the plan ready, we have the idea ready, but most of us just don’t start walking. We just stare at it. We know what we need to do to get there, we think we have it all planned on the paper, but there’s no practical backing, so we just chicken out. Or we need a perfect job that could back you up and fund your ventures, give you enough extra time before you actually set out.
None of the ventures start without money, agreed. But there are many more ways to start earning without a job that you can take up to get to where you want. Freelancing, part-time jobs, baby and pet sitting, ghostwriting, virtual assistant, cab drivers and so many more. There are so many ways to earn money. It might not get you all the things that you need to set out and it might not pay handsomely, but you can start somewhere.
If not the entire company, you can start a website for the moment and tell the world about your plans. When you have your plans written in your personal diary, you might back off from them at any time, but once they are out there, you won’t.
It is not necessary to win at everything you start, you will fail a few times before you actually start getting somewhere. But you will succeed, or you will fail, only if you start.
A lot of us have our paths ready, our ideas ready, our plans ready, but we are not ready to walk that path.
Just start walking before it is too late, before someone walks your path, give it all you have in you. You can do whatever you want to succeed because if you win you don’t need to explain anything and if you fail there is no need to explain.
You had one objective in your mind for the past so many months. You had worked day in and day out just to get somewhere and now, when your efforts are starting to pay when you are moving towards your final goal, when you are finally going to have all you had ever dreamt of what if the one thing you needed the most, fails?
Like, suppose you were planning to buy land, a property by your dad’s name as a gift to him. You had earned a lot of money and stored all of it in your bank account. Now, right before your FDs were going to mature, or right before you were going to make your final deposit, the income tax department comes in and seals all your accounts because they suspect criminal activity.
What do you do? You don’t even know if the hold is permanent or temporary or how long the cases in the court would last. All your hard earned money, collected over the years is locked in the bank account forever. Yes, you did some percentages of cheating in your taxes, but it was as much as salt in a dish, and that shouldn’t stop you, but it is!
You stay there, frozen in your feet and there is nothing you can do about it. You are just a powerless guy with no contacts, no connections and you are stranded in the desert all on your own. What do you do? Nothing, just make a new goal in your life, understand life is not fair and move on or just wait and try something to warm up your dead cold feet.
“Need is the mother of invention, but curiosity kills a man”.
What do you live your life like? Do you fulfill your needs and settle down, take a deep breath and relax. Or do you test it out, try everything on yourself just to get the extra bit and might be, make it to the top someday?
While people have always been telling you to treat your body like a temple, and body is the most important thing to you, treating it like a science lab might work too. Experiment with it, get your hair colored, get tattooed, open up to new experiences, open up to the world once again and try new things.
Try new food, meet new people, hang out with the people you connect with, drop out the people you are with only because they might get you somewhere someday, the friends you have because you might benefit from them and not because you like them. Stay with people you share comm0n energies with, and stay away from those who would never have your back.
All your thoughts are derived from your experience and eventually, it is going to get you tunnel minded. Get connected with someone, get more experiences, think with people like you, let all the experiences, let all the people come in before you make a decision. The decision might still be tunneled by your experience, but after so many experiences and meeting so many people, while it is still tunneled, the tunnel might just have a wider mouth.
Though your body is a temple and staying away from things that would harm it for good might not be in your best interest, but something that you might grow from, something that could make your better, you need to try it. Just remember, not all inventions were made by Gods in the temple, some needed The Science Lab.
When you are in a tough spot or in a pickle, and if it is really hard to make a decision, then remember at the end of it all, all that matters is you!
You are low on money and your friends want you to go out with them, then remember they are with you today, and might not be there tomorrow. If the offer is tempting and is something you cannot refuse, then go! If your monetary situation is so bad that you cannot even afford a cab to the office or to the local store, then remember the friends might leave you tomorrow and all that remains is you!
If you have to make a choice between choosing someone and something that is very important to you or sacrificing something that you wanted to chase ever since you were a child and now you get a shot at it, but something turns up and you have to let go of you chance for someone or something, just remember, that something might be fragile and might break tomorrow, and someone might leave you by the end of the day, so all that is important is you!
If you are in a dilemma and you cannot decide between the good and the easy, and even though the good might never get you what you wanted and easy is a tempting offer plunged at you, then just remember, all that matters is what will you think about yourself when you are done with this, will you be okay? Or will you regret it? Because all that you are going to care about it, is you!
And when you have to choose between money, or fame, or if you are thinking to pursue a goal, or you just want to be kind to someone, don’t wait for an opportunity, don’t wait for anything, because at the end of it all, when you are not here anymore, people are not going to remember who you wanted to be, all that would be remembered is you!
If you haven’t fallen in love already then do it, all you need to love is you!
So, I’ve been getting a lot of inboxes lately, about how to write a novel? Where do I start? How to write it? Will people read it? Will anyone like my writing? Is it difficult to get sales? How do you get your books published? How to contact the publishers? And so many more. There are all sorts of questions including questions that are projected a few decades ahead of now.
Well, before I answer your questions, I have a question for you. There were three frogs sitting on a branch, one decided to jump, how many remain on the branch?
He decided to jump but never jumped.
You too have decided to jump, but you haven’t jumped. You are just sitting there, idling around, and that would make a big difference in what you are doing right now and what you are going to do tomorrow and in the next few years.
Don’t just sit there, jump! Take that leap of faith and let the opportunity guide you to where you are supposed to be. You need to act before you expect the results. Expect less and work more. Just follow your heart and you might get where you want to be if not, you will be somewhere that suits you.
Just write out your heart, just don’t care about what people are going to think about your novel, are they going to like it or not, if it would sell or not, all these are problems that you might face after you are published, and getting published is going to be a problem after you have written your novel.
If you haven’t written your novel, you aren’t going to face these problems, so why are you worrying about the problem that would never come your way? First write it out! Write what you want to write, don’t care about the grammar or the spellings or the flow of the book, just write it. Once you are done writing it, we will correct everything.
Once you are done writing it, we will find a publisher and once you are published we will take care of the sales.
Don’t worry if people don’t like your novel, they might fall in love with the second, or the third or the one following it. And lastly, you cannot please everyone. The world’s best selling authors are not loved by everyone. They are loved by many, but not everyone. You will always have someone you cannot please, you will always have someone, who likes someone else more than you, and that is absolutely fine!
For now, just write it out!
You are low on money, you might not be able to afford a necessity, you might not be able to get something everyone else seems to have, everyone has an edge over you, do you give up? Or do you try?
And when you try, do you rage on everyone around you who doesn’t need to try as hard as you do and losing an opportunity you wish you had? Or do you walk your own path and don’t expect anything from anyone? Do you believe or do you trust? Do you walk your own path and share it only when it is a success story? Or do you tell everyone about it and take help from them?
But does giving up always mean you have lost and accept defeat gracefully or does it mean you on;y need some rest before you pounce?
Giving up doesn’t always mean you are giving up on the whole mission, and sometimes it is just taking a step back and doing the damage to run the entire mission and make it a success. You break the bone of the problem, you kill it with fear when you are short of bullets and there it is, a match won over broken pride and broken confidence.
What do you do? There are clouds and you can’t afford to remove them? Do you fly below them and become the prey? Or do you tear through them, up above, and become the master of the skies?
All of us have some dreams and some goals in our lives. And each goal needs you to live a life. The desire makes your soul twitchy and anxious, it makes your soul jump beats and doesn’t let it settle unless you get what you need. Once you do, you are okay with what you have and you think you have got what you always needed, your soul calms down and you can rest.
Some, just lower their expectations, make a short term goal and live just long enough. Some, have sky-high goals and live an immortal life. Some still alive in our hearts, souls, minds, and books. Some just want to live just as long as their partner and make combined goals with them. They find someone with the same thirst and the same desires.
What life truly is, is all about how you plan to live it and what do you plan to have when all of it comes to an end. It’s all about what you want from yourself and what do you wish to have by tonight. It’s all about the moments that you live in the todays, the memories that you created in the yesterdays and what do you see for yourself in the tomorrows.
Only business empires and careers are not limited to goals. Staying fit, loving someone, getting loved, getting famous, completing the novel that you read half way through, completing the incomplete novel that you wrote halfway through, completing the stories of you today, meeting new people, gaining new experiences, setting out on a world tour, meeting people you would love to meet and meeting people you don’t know exists. All these are goals, all these are desires that fuel our lives, all these are what we live for.
I’m in love with this colour and I don’t know why.
It is just a little too calming too look and it is everywhere right now. I have a purple water bottle, I’m always purple in games, if not my clothes then my name tag is purple, my keyboard is purple and even my mouse is switching between being purple and all the other colours on the spectrum.
I don’t know how to make sense of what I’m trying to say but it seems to be a new favourite too look at. I don’t have purple clothes, but I’m planning on it and might even get some purple merchandise and a purple backlight for my monitor.
No, I don’t have a fetish, nor I’m in favour of purple, it just seems too calming to me right now. It is soothing and at the same time brings in a sense of enthusiasm.
Or might be it is just the shade of purple that I have that looks good and not the colour as a whole. Well, I believe I’m not the only one, even Tarzan the Wonder Car was purple and Jane from Tarzan had a purple wrist band if I’m not wrong.
I don’t know, don’t judge me, I’m sleepy.
An omnipresent and the most powerful feeling in the entire universe that could conquer everything, as long as it is not between the people of two different castes, creeds or is between the people of the same sex.
Love has said to have conquered a lot of things. From the hearts of millions of people around the world to a petty territory of a King. It has been there from the time life came into existence. It has been around since the time people first started writing. It has been there in the plays, movies and even the photos clicked. It is there, where you look for it.
Yet, it fails to bring two souls, that actually love each other, together. They are bound to leave each other, under the pressure of their careers, their families, the society.
Love the most powerful feeling in this world, loses all the battles. It has to fight against everything that is there to fight with. Nations, friends, people, religions, holy books, distances, villains, pasts, future, time, and if there is any strength left in you after all these battles, there is one more battle, against yourself.
After you win all these battles, and if you still have the strength, then you can love the one you fought for. Unless they left you midway while you fought your little battles, or unless your soul has died in the process of overcoming every evil in the world.
When love is said to be so strong and is said to be immortal, why does it have to die before it could bloom?
