#AdviceThatMattered In My Life




Let’s do one exercise.

Go to a child, and ask that child one question, “What do you want to be when you grow up?”

Hear their answers. It will be something like doctor, engineer, scientist, pilot, rich businessman, actor, sports person, etc.

That one question has the power to make a child dream big. That one question has the strength to get a child going on the path of fulfilling their objectives and goals.

But when that child grows up, these dreams fade away. If a child dreamt about taking up sports and becoming a cricketer, he gets hit by the fact that it is not easy to become a cricketer and that you need a godfather to help you through. There are lakhs of people who are trying and working hard to enter the Indian cricket team of maybe around 15 players. And in this race many dreams are crushed. And therefore, understanding the consequences, they pick up sensible career options and forget the lofty dreams.

Remember that saying from the movie, “3 Idiots”, Life is a race! From the very beginning till the very end. Only a handful wins this race. And they win because of the assistance they receive. The ones who get the right guidance fly high and achieve what they set out to do.

Here are the 3 advices that I have received in my life time that actually mattered and helped me to fulfil my goals. These three advices were the best among the many given to me by different people I came across in my life: parents, friends, mentors, etc. Here they are:

1) Work hard

The no. 1 rule in the “How to Be Successful” book is that you need to work hard. Working hard here may mean giving up the easy way out option. Visualize that goal you have write it down on a piece of paper, put it in our cell phone under calendar and type in 8am "Rise and shine time to chase after your dream." Every morning, get up with an aim for the day and at the end of the day evaluate how far you were able to fulfil the daily goal. Change doesn't come overnight. It takes time and time crafting yourself to become that person you want to be or overcome that wall that seems too big to get over.

2) Have Faith

You will come across people who will make you believe you are good for nothing. With their grumblings and naggings, they emit a negative force and this force is enough to destroy anyone. But you need to be strong and have faith in yourself even in the worst situations. Faith is the key to your success. Without the key how do you expect to unlock the door to you dream. They key is valuable. To reach that dream it takes time, takes days, it take months and you have to keep breaking those limits in your life. Keep that craving fire burning for success.

3) Connect with people

If you think you can do it alone, you are wrong. Remove the thought from your mind that I can do it alone and I don’t need anyone’s help. Yes sure you will be able to do it alone but it will take up a long time. With someone else helping you, you can reach your goal sooner. Connect with positive people who can help you make a difference in your life. Cut out the ones who push you down. The right people will help you a lot in achieving your dreams.

These three advice's have helped me a lot in my life both in personal and career aspects. Hope these help you too.
