Honesty is the best policy. Remember this quote? When I was in my school, back in fifth standard I was thought this. It’s not just me but the whole class. Some followed this way and others didn’t. I am among the ones who followed the honest path. Those who are honest by now know that it’s very difficult to be honest. For me it’s creating not just problems but troubles.
I see peoples choosing the “other path” for the sake of success. And success for them is merely measured in terms of the green color. The more they have it the more successful they are. The “other path” you take may seem smooth at start but as you proceed it will get difficult. This is very opposite to the honest path.
When you work on honest path you get troubles and admirers too. This comes from my job experience. I worked hard. Everyday I had sweat bath. I lost my sleep. I lost my interests. I was distanced from my friends. All for the sake of this job. I kept telling myself.. “Just for another few days and things will get easy.” When that time came, I was accused of taking bribe.
This was the first time in my life someone said like this to me. I couldn’t stand it. I decided to quit the job. To my goodness, I got a suspension before quitting the job. I should have quit at the moment I was accused. Though I was given an option to work on another site by my employer, I didn’t. I lost my faith and trust in him.
Later on I found out that he recruited three freshers for the salary he used to pay me. Three for the price of one?? I was happy with my decision then. He is not the person whom you can trust. He doesn’t want to build a team but wants workers whom he can use and throw. He wants peoples who can dance the way he wants. I am surely not one of such.
Though happy with my decision, I felt very bad on losing the job. This was my best performance ever throughout my career. I wanted to work more here and learn more. It was not written in my faith. Sometimes I get a question, Is it worth working hard? The next moment the question disappears with answer “it is”. I look back and see myself working hard in tough conditions in a hope for better tomorrow. I end up jobless and being called as workaholic fool.
Good things to take were the good peoples who worked around me. I got many admirers who appreciated my work. I loved working with these people who worked hard. I wish to work with them again. With that hope I look forward…Who knows!!! Something great is waiting for me as I already have tasted goodness. 🙂
Principles change as the time. Why not? You need to cope up with the new world which defines things in different way than what they used to be. Over the time work is where there have been dramatic changes. What you do, doesn’t matter. What you don’t do, doesn’t matter. What matters is that whatever you do or don’t do should result in success.
We have now got the habit, a very bad habit. This habit is not being used to success, but running after success. We try everything possible and impossible to get closer to success. We forget our principles, instead we change them. The path chosen for the success not necessarily are right paths. We go through the wrong path, get lost in between and then dig a path which lead to right one. It’s like we know the right path but we choose the wrong path in order to taste early success.
While doing all this one thing we forget is the source of success. What is the source of success? Was there a single moment in your life when you asked this question to yourself? I bet that moment doesn’t exist. Fortunately or unfortunately the source of success is known to everyone. We don’t see it. A blanket of nothing covers that source. That source is Happyness.
Happyness is the source of success. When we are happy, there is nothing for us to worry about. Whatever we do at that time works out excellent. Our mind loves happyness and it acts as oxygen to our creativity. When we know the source of anything, we see a definite path towards the source. There is no need to search and go the wrong way.
So don’t worry. Be happy and see yourself closing towards success…. 🙂
Till you get happy…
An empty chair to seat
for my legs to get some rest
and my bumps to have some stress
Pain in body is relieved
but not vanished
Standing up relieves my bumps
And puts stress on my legs
I feel the pain
It gets worse
What is happening to me?
Pile of files in front of me
I am trying to focus
Cool breeze kisses me
My eyes are closing now
What was there in that breeze?
Out there under the sun
He is trying to suck me
Like orange juice
For me, water is not enough
Nothing is enough
Thirst is never satisfied
My bed is not my friend
Laying on bed hurts
All the pain at same time
Then my eyes get closed
It doesn’t take long
The symptoms are repeated
They seem to be perpetual
once again the same question
What is happening to me?
I am tired
I am tired of being tired
“He achieved another milestone.”
You hear such sort of statements after someone achieves something or someone succeeds in something. This something differs from person to person but the statement remains the same.
“And he is crossing milestones one after another.”
A question arises is why milestones only?? Do you know the reason??
Milestones are easy to get. You find them at every one mile distance. In international units its roughly 1.6 Km.When we achieve a milestone there is lot of hard work involved in it. We have the sweat dropping hours of work. Well the sweat dropping thing is not for the chefs and the ones related in food industry. You may get fired for dropping sweat there.
The hard work we do cannot be compared to milestone. Milestones come every mile and they are easy to get. Unlike the success we get. It’s not everyday that we taste success. It’s a luxury. Comparing success to milestone is just not the respect and honor for the person’s work. Do you think success is like a milestone?? It always appears after every mile that we travel?? At least don’t include me in that list.
So what’s the alternative word for this? There is no perfect one. But I guess there’s a need to find for an English word. May be I am just not aware of the word.
Till you reach another milestone…
Way back when school was school and not a way to earn money, there was a lot discipline in the schools. I remember my school days. I studied in a christian school where discipline injected in our bloodstream. You can compare that with the military training. Schools too can discipline as effectively as the cadets or soldiers in military. The dumb students or those sitting at the back of the class surely think school as military camp.
Being late in school was never allowed. I hardly saw anyone coming late to school. When there was someone then that student has to take a long walk towards the principals office. To be frank, Our school was in discipline just because of our principal. There was a fear for him in my mind till my last year in school when he taught us maths. He always asked me for the answers and my answers clicked often. And throughout the school life I never heard that question.. “Why are you late??” Continue reading →
