The sights to freedom – 2

“Shine bright. Live brighter, even if the sky is clouded.”

It has been a tough day for Seko. He didn’t get up on time, didn’t follow the schedule and later on in the day he was so de-motivated that he just went to sleep. This was Day #1 and he acted like a kid who didn’t have a goal.

He didn’t do any exercise, or review his stock holdings or read news. At least he did try to manage what business he has at present, by really, was this enough?

The next day after he woke up, he checked the time and then cried in his mind for the lack of motivation and thoughts of failure lurking in his mind. What is the right path? Is there one?

“It will be okay. I will follow everything slowly and get where I want to. It takes time, it will not happen in an instant”, he said to himself while looking at the bathroom mirror. He touched the mirror with his palm, as if trying to console his own self, “It will be okay. I will get better. I need to also realize what all did I do today, and how it affected anyone. I do hope I changed someone’s life for the better today.”

I am not giving up that easily. I will explore, learn, do more and become the best.

 

The sights to freedom – 1

Seko had been dreaming about leading in the fields of Sports, Modeling, Investing and Business since the age of 19. However, he didn’t knew that the competition in each of those fields was way too tough to lead, much less lead in all the four fields.

Now at the age of 24, he still dreamt of being at the top in those fields without having made a little contribution in them. He was often criticized by his parents of his blind thinking and unattainable goals. Slowly and steadily he lost most of hai friends and only a couple were left, but even they didn’t know about Seko’s fantasies. Seko also feared telling them as he thought that they might also leave him thinking he is crazy.

What was Seko supposed to do? Frustrated with is stop since the past four years he finally planned on doing something. But it was harder than he thought.

The past five years of mild efforts had made his body relaxed, sleep in late, drink, his mind was confused and heavy, while he was short of breath at times. His round belly was visible from a distance and his laziness often cost him the respect he could deserve.

“No no, I will make it a point to change. It won’t work like this else.”, He thought to himself.

He had recently read that it takes at least 21 days to turn a task into a habit, while it takes 90 days to turn it into a lifestyle. What he wanted was for a lifetime, so he needed to be ‘very’ disciplined for at least 90 days before his body gets accustomed to the routine and starts to act on things on it’s own.

And so began his journey for his SMIC routine…If he could attain 6 hours of Exercise/Sports and 10 hours of Work/Business, he should be all set to achieve his objectives. But there are many other take in a day besides this such as getting ready, eating, sleeping, talking to family and commuting. Is it okay to skip a few? No no. Everything on that list is important on a daily basis. All of them need to be done to have a relaxed mind and body.

“Let’s start slow”, he said to himself, “then we can see how things work and take it from there.”

Sports – Exercises related to Running

Modeling – Exercises to tone the muscles

Investing – Read the finance column and dabble in stock market for at least an hour daily

Creation – Manage what is at present and dive in something new by exploring the innovative possibilities

Will he be able to start his journey from this day?

A day of questions

Adam started:

I am turning 24 in a week, and lately I have been thinking all day about what do I want to do in life. Things are starting to clear up (or become more complex?) as I walk through this continuous flow of life, sometimes monotonous and at times surprising. At times I find myself staring up at the moon in the night, glowing so brightly while sometimes it is hidden by the clouds that shroud it.

As I keep on working in the company, learning new things and meaningful solutions, I often think if this is what I want to keep doing. What is it that I am looking for? No, I am not that good at blogging to get thousands of followers. Traveling needs money and I am not that interested in it. Although I would like to support people, I first need to develop the strength for the same. Yes I want to give that beggar in the street corner a thousand bucks, but will it be useful? Ultimately it would be spent on something other than knowledge, and to run a free education institution needs finance and dedication. What I am looking for is something more…

Something deep? With more meaning to myself?

We are all clinging to life, some of us barely. Probably the people around us make us do that. You binge from one series to another, go to pub often and yet find no solace. Maybe meditation can help. And yoga.

No matter where you are, the emptiness creeps in. But that’s not it. It comes with a need to do more. A want for something more. And there is no way to satisfy it. Not yet. So tire yourself out until the mind calms down, until it can’t think any more. Let the sleep filled with the dreams of the past shown in the future. Let it all go in the instance.

Sid replied:

And the next morning, have that morning cup of black coffee. Splash your face with water. And re-start. Re-vitalize. Return with that craving of something more.

Emotions: Something that controls us all!

#emotions #life #corruption #selfish #humans #world #desires #money #happiness #poem

You can have emotions,

But with it comes the burden;

A burden to choose,

Choices that are not so light.

 

Emotions give us love, Emotions give us life,

Emotions give us fun, Emotions give us fight;

Emotions are something that give us all,

Be it enjoyment, sadness or corruption for all.

 

Any person will look to support their family,

Because emotions resides inside us all;

Whether it is the president, the police officer,

Or the mafia with the gall.

 

So then what are these emotions,

Are these anything that makes us live;

Or these are the things that makes us suffer,

And are the reason to cover us in pall.

 

However, you can agree with the fact,

Even if you are a Psychologist;

No one can realize the emotions of everyone,

The different emotions in us that call.

 

Happiness is an emotion, so is sadness,

Birth is an emotion, so is death;

Success is an emotion, so is Loss,

Rising is an emotion, so is a fall.

 

There is no heart without the emotion,

Neither is there love, nor humans;

But corruption too comes with emotion,

And radicalism flows outside the wall.

 

What we can do is live in the present,

Creating new emotions every minute of our life;

And sharing these emotions with other people,

There are billions of people with us in this hall.
