WHAT ARE YOU CONFUSED ABOUT?



EXTRACT 1.
Keep doing what you are doing, you never know how beautifully life will turn out to be. Life works in the most beautiful of ways.

So lemme reflect to one of my peer friends’ journey back when he was in school. English wasnt his strongest language and bullying so became a part of his school life filled with a hell lot of embarrassment. Leaving all, he tried to focus on improving that instead of giving up over the stupid bullying stuff. He joined the IELTS classes and trained hard to improve his english only for one reason, not because he was getting bullied, but because he wanted an admission to his dream college though his parents couldn’t afford the fee structure of the university. But as we know, LIFE GOES ON..! He continued in india, and made his name as a famous business tycoon. One day, he got a call from the same college he aspired to go to, inviting him to deliver a speech there. And hah, a dream come true😊. It surely would take a moment for anyone to reflect on this kinda moment, because, it’s only when you say it loud, you realise how far you’ve made it..!
Nevertheless, some dreams maybe out of reach right now, but, if you keep believing, they come TRUE , and how, you saw that…!

EXTRACT 2.
Are you taking a step towards something better than before…something for a change?

So, here’s another extract from a real life-based story. It were the voting days, I was standing at the booth, and there I saw a 16 year old kid, who really wanted to vote in the elections, but as we know, this age couldn’t allow him to..!πŸ˜… I was talking to him the other day, he said he wanted to create a difference, he said he’s been thinking about this and how could he impact the INDIAN VOTING SCENARIOS. He even told me he created a community of students, starting with 4-5 seniors, eventually forming a group of 25 which spoke about the importance and impact of voting. Actually, to sum up, he decided to educate people on the need of voting. Within a few months, it increased its hands over more than a 200 crowd, bringing together students who wanted to create a societal change. Surprisingly, the community kept spreading and it even got featured in ‘THE HINDISTAN TIMES’. I’m not sure how much if an impact it created, but ik certain it helped atleast 1 person. This was the very first time I realised YOU NEVER HAVE TO BE POWERFUL TO CREATE A CHANGE, just the right intentions and a first step towards creating a change is enough. Like he took the step without knowing anything at all.
So, now, if ever feel like doing bigger things but think you are too young for that, do think twice.
Are you taking the step towards a change, though it changes even one person?

EXTRACT 3.
Lied to be cool and that’s okayyyy..!

So here’s another excerpt, and I guess many of us might have done this, and, and theres nothing wrong or to be shamed about. I was in about 8th or 9th grade, there was my best friend, she said she’s going to abroad for her summer holidays, and frankly speaking she thought she would look cool. It was later that the whole school got to know from her cousin that she didnt even had a passport. In no time, she was a laughing stock at school. She was totally humiliated and embarrassed at her act of telling the lie, with everyone pointing at her and laughing. But looking back, I think she might be glad she faced such an incident, because after that, that same girl worked her every sweat to make it happen. She started as a researcher and sent her work to one of the well knowned universities, and guess what, that university asked her to join their research team, arranging every expenses for her to migrate from India to germany. In that very instant, life comes around one full circle. I’m sure the 14 year old same girl would be very proud of what she became.
Make your actions match your words and go all-in to make your dreams come to life. Stop circling your life and repenting over all the lies you made and were a part of..! Life is so much more.
By the way, here I would like to ask something, in what way life has come full-circle for you?

EXTRACT 4.
What fear is stopping you to have a successful career?

What if I fail?
What if I make myself embarrassed?
Or what if I get embarrassed for not knowing this?
What If my performance is not upto the mark?
What if my work gets rejected?
What if I loose my job because if uncertain change in technology?
What if I get isolated from my team because of my inabilities?
What if I get stuck here with no growth?
What if dont learn anything at all?
What if I dont stay relevant in the future because the degree I took and the skills I have?
What if ?
What if ? And..
What if ?
This anticipation about the future and confusions about the growth, the biggest fears people face at every level of their lives. Be it you, your idols or even the richest man in the future..! Remember do wht you want, let others do wht they want, and let Bill Gates do wht he wants…! Do your shit.
What’s going to happen next and what I’m gonna do in the future is still a big question mark..isnt that?

EXTRACT 5.
If road A doesnt work for you, remember there are 100 others waiting for your steps to be put at.

10th : 10 cgpa
12th : 96.5%
Grad : 14 backlogs
Life : broke
People aspire me to join : IIM ahmedabad
A family of : toppers

Lol..welcome to the actual life..!πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
So this comes the last excerpt for today. Again a well noticed reality.
This person, considering himself weak in studies, was so much ridiculed by the family for the same. Though, he was even inclined towards finding more about this glittering word ‘IIM’. Though he started his own work, what actually he wanted to do, but his family never stopped ridiculing him as he could never enter an IIM. But, as is rightly said, winners find their way, one way or another. They always fond their way into achieving something they put their hearts to. He got invited to IIM to deliver a Ted-talk and an executive session for his life journey. Also, the main point, he still dies to go to IIM for studies or for anything else, but he is self aware of his strengths.
There is no route to reach your goal. If road-A isnt your path, choose road-B.

MY TAKEAWAYS .?
1. Stay true to yourself and your work.
2. Dont worry about the destination, but the journey and it’ll all be worth it in the end.
3. You do you, I do me and let Bill Gates do Bill Gates.
4. Stay out of others people business and make your own.
5. It’s not about the mistakes we make, what we learn from it makes the difference.
6. Prepare now to power ahead.

GROWTH IS PAINFUL, CHANGE IS PAINFUL. BUT NOTHING IS AS PAINFUL AS STAYING STUCK SOMEWHERE YOU DONT BELONG TO.

WHAT ARE YOU CONFUSED ABOUT THEN?

      And yeah, that cgpa, that’s basically a sum up of all the points or Marks we have gained our entire sem, to be lowered to the averages, so the name says, “cumulative grades point average..!” ( kind of a system here, which literally sucks seriously..!

      3. It’s quite disconcerting and it makes me anxious that painkillers are pure ecstacy at the moment. I have faith, without which i will not be able to get through this. I don’t wish to become anxious at all. I’m blessed, love surrounds me.

  2. Again a well set up Article, Akshita…😁😁
    seems lit bit busy now a days, aren’t you?πŸ˜…πŸ˜…
    Now coming back to your post, yes we people confused but don’t know why we confused, which creates more confusion among us, right?
    We know the path but destiny? I don’t think so, any of us have idea about it.
    We all are on same path sometimes, some creates their own, some follows blindly..
    We all joined rat race, even it’s not work out for us and we know that but still we go after that, that’s not the irony of the life, it’s the reality of many of us, right?

    Ahhan that last Bill Gates line, sounds like (my business is my business, yours is yours..πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚)
    Though true, no argue in that..
    Those takeaways is the best part of the whole post, I must say..❀❀

    1. Thank you so much Divyang..!πŸ™‚
      Hahaha, yeasss, maybe a bit, back to the call of the duty..! Cannot fetch much time here, but believe I’m trying so badly..lmaoπŸ˜…πŸ˜‚
      Diwali and everything over..!hahahh.
      Anyways, lemme know how was yours..???😌🀭🀭

      Well so much agreed here. This is the main problem faced by the people like us, confused yet dont know why, I wonder when the confusions of the confusions will end..!πŸ˜…πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
      Exactly, we know the path, that yes this is is..but destiny, we cant really figure that out, sadly..! We know wht we r doing, sometimes even not, but cant change the destinies..!! Isn’t that?
      Right right..! We discussed this very thing in the older comments actually..! And I guess, the best is to create our own, and follow one if it brings you any good..! Recollecting the old sayings..hahahahah ( by us, eventually..!πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚)
      Exactly, and I really dont know why this human nature has become so common, why the fuck..????
      Some because of peer pressure, some because they think the very thing they want to do is actually not worth it, people will not appreciate that or something, some because of their dignity issues..and a long list lmao.

      Hahah, kinda savage lol. Well, it was in no offense to the very Bill gates.πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
      Thank you so much for the appreciation Divynag. Have a lovely day 🧑

    1. Exactly, it is so much easy, like these unwanted thoughts hypnotizing us..haha.
      So much agreed Jaya, confusions for wht we want to do is the biggest hurdle in our way. Once we are clear with wht we are actually doing and are at ease with it, no one can stop us from moving forward..and, this is the biggest thing needed.
      Thank you for dropping by..I so much appreciated your kind inspiring words with gratitude πŸ™‚πŸ§‘
