It was autumn,
standing amidst a crowd
i saw someone
one among them
or maybe not,
silently listening their conversations
nodding his head
left or right and side by side,
maybe, understanding things
or maybe not..!
To break this diliemma,
I went upto him
‘ Hey champ,
what are you doing here?’
And, an answer came,
~Are you a part of this group?..
No, just listening.. ~
I am a fan of this guy..~
( to be precise, that guy was a famous speaker)
~ So why dont you tell him?…
I’m afraid if he’ll even listen..~
~ You can try…
But, I’m afraid..~
~ Until you ask, the answer is going to be a big ‘NO’ always..
Okay, I’ll try..~
~ Go for it…! And, I left..!
Few months later,
I found that same person
right where I saw him before…!
curious me, again went to him,
~ Did you try?..
…yes, I told him I was his big fan ( the light in his eyes was incomparable)~
~ Did he listen?..
….he was a kind soul, even took a picture with me..! ~
~ Wow, isnt that incredible?…
…but, I thought this could be more, sooo~
…sooo, I followed him to the VIP area,
again went to him,
just wanted to see the words win.
He offered me a drink,
but, what if someone doesn’t drink?
I said him, rather,
i would like to stand next to him..!
Having stood for an hour or so,
being so resolute..
he invited me for lunch.
Asking my plans,
asked me to start a podcast..! ~
~ Okey, then?….
….I asked him to be my first guest..!😅
He said, what about 15th?
Having recorded 14,
i’m standing here
waiting for him, to record 15th..!~
And, there he went,
recording 15, 16 and so many more….!
Honestly, I was numb.
There I realised one thing, unless we make an effort to actually ASK.. how can we decide ourselves, the answer is going to be a NO. Who knows what happens next?
You see, it all starts with an urge to ask..! You have to ask, if you want to do something. No one is here to read your mind, you have to get up yourself..!
Ask for more, more and more..until, you feel enough for you…! Telling him he was a big fan, asking for a picture, following him to the VIP area, asking to stand next to him, being invited for lunch, given an idea to start a podcast, inviting him as a guest, and finally recording him as his 15th podcast..!🙌🏻
EVERYONE CAN MAKE THIS HAPPEN.
WORK ON YOU FOR YOU..!
