“The reality of life is that your perceptions — right or wrong — influence everything else you do. When you get a proper perspective of your perceptions, you may be surprised how many other things fall into place”
If you are able to read it, it means you live a luxurious life because of having a computer to use and to have internet to read this article. There is always a day when your life shows you the practical side. You never get to know the hardships your parents faced in bringing you up until and unless you go through that process and the stage.
These are some of those days in which I am realizing, absorbing and digesting some of the hard realities of life. The biggest reality of life which I always denied, the reality that money is an important element of life to remain happy. The reality that you can’t get a job with a handsome salary after spending thousands on your education.
I have now come out of my books and learnt the real meaning of inflation and its impact on low class people and most importantly the differentiation of classes. I always had misconception that after spending around 3 lac in some private university will get you a job of at least 50k but it was just my figment of imagination. Life is not easy nor the method of acquiring money.
The reality of a common middle man is to work 9 to 5pm like a donkey and still pray not to have shortage of money at the end of the month. He cuts down his budget to nurture his children. He buries his own needs somewhere deep hidden from everyone while the short and easy definition of low class category is they live hand to mouth. No saving, No change in lifestyle, and a life no one would ever want to live.
When you get out of your home to explore the world, you will get to know that life is not a piece of cake. You can’t have everything as soon as you ask for. If you are able to do anything with your father’s references, you don’t need to be proud of it because it’s not you; it’s your father who should be given a credit. You are just a piece of shit without them. Get out of this glittery world and taste the harsh side of the world. The Real side!
Life is just a diplomatic game. Be a Politician and win it!
No matter how big the opportunity is, every opportunity in this world comes with a PROBLEM. The whole universe comprises of problems and their solutions. Problems exist in each and everyone’s life but some has the power to HIDE IT, some has the power to FACEIT and some just BACKS OUT OF IT. One should remember that showing back on the problem won’t solve it but giving hard time to problem will help it.
The birth of a child is a perfect example for a problem and its solution. At the time of birth, the child is a problem and as soon as he is delivered, he converts to solution of the same problem. But the essential thing required during the process is TIME and PATIENCE! You need to understand that every problem is itself the solution and the solution lies within the problem. Every problem motivates the person to struggle for more and for better.
Every problem and every chance is an opportunity to turn the life around. A quote says “The very least you can do in your life is to figure out what you hope for. And the most you can do is living inside that hope”. Maria Robinson once said, “Nobody can go back and start a new beginning, but anyone can start today and make a new ending.” Difficulties exist in life to examine a man and to force the person to find his core competencies. Face these problem with head held high. There is no person in this world that isn’t capable of handling the problems he is going through. God give problems to those who can handle them. Its truth that we can’t fight the problem instantly but taking flight from the problem isn’t the solution too. We are made with emotions, we are made to get sad, upset, hurt, stumble and fall because that’s the journey and the whole purpose of this life is to live this life and bear it the way it is i.e. to face the problem, to adapt it and to learn to solve it. These problems are the things which ultimately mould us to the person we become.
One has to admit that doing something and getting it wrong is at least ten times more productive than doing nothing. Problems are always there between reaching the target like a goalkeeper of the goal but it doesn’t mean that player should never try to hit the goal. Player always dodges the goalkeeper, tries and succeeds! Likewise, every success has a trail of failures behind it, and every failure is leading towards success!
