Do it with passion or else don’t do!

So you have been living on this planet for many years. You may be of any age 20s, 30s 40s or 90s. You would have enjoyed life, struggled in your daily ways and you would have had fun with it. But as you would have lived live and continue to live it, you may at time feel that something is missing; something that is the difference between a super and an ordinary life.

You will find people who are out there in the universe and are bubbling with life. They are everywhere around you to inspire and be followed as examples.What is that makes these people as shining examples for every one to dole upon and admire? There are countless characteristics we may admire in them, but if you look closer there is just one that is common to all of them. They live each moment with ‘Passion’. ‘Passion’ is the alixir for a super life. The people of passion do everything they do with passion, any thing they put their hands on, they just don’t do it; they do it with all their effort single minded on the task. These people will bring the extra fuel in doing things. They will do it with the zeal and enthusiasm that will bring so much life to the task and their work environment that you will actually be able to see the energy ring that will surround the whole work place. They will create ‘positive chaos’ and they will challenge entropy so much that you can visually experience the churning and buzzing all around the place.

But how can you become such a ‘bubble buzzle’ to create such a level of energy all around you at most of the time. Here are some pointers that may help:

  • Do not take foot in the tasks that you do not like; be choosy where ever you can be. Do tasks that interests you if you have the choice.
  • If you do not have the choice of the type of task that you have to do, this is your opportunity to do something new; find out the real reason you want to shy away from doing it.
  • Most of the time the reason is that you are scared to do take a task because it involves new skills that you do not possess. If that is the case, this is your golden opportunity and don’t let it go. Take that task and learn new things
  • If you don’t want to take a task because it’s so trivial and mechanical. The reason why you should do it is because now you will have the opportunity to become an expert in that task
  • There are always reason why you should be passionate to do a task.Find your reason!
  • If you don’t know something, there is nothing to hide from and especially from yourself, it’s time to learn and conquer
  • Involve people in what you are doing and talk about what you are doing to anyone you meet. Market and publicise your current activities and achievements
  • Remember you are not bragging when you are talking about something you are so much passionate about, so don’t shy away from showcasing your achievements and talents
  • Feel proud about the task you are doing
  • Become an expert in the task you are doing
  • Time target the finish of the task and challenge yourself each day
  • Have a fulfilling day, be super engaged in the activity and then go home for a well-earned rest and somber

You just have to walk 20 percent faster than your normal pace and the confidence will just flow in automatically in you!

Enter the Real World :)

When you are so much engrossed in your thought it can be intimidating to actually admit that you may be now be living in an enclosed castle of your own thoughts and your own dreams. Let’s take a radical step now. Let’s break this castle of our dreams. Let’s admit to ourselves that we have created false dreams and also false boundaries for ourselves and our imagination.

You may start by thinking that ‘hey! that is not true. I have lived like this since the time I remember. This is how things have worked for me, and there is absolutely nothing wrong with my ways of life and thinking.” But take this thought, we have just one life to live. What if it is true, may be there is a real world out there. A world which is not ruled by me, but still is refreshing. A world where there are no boundaries, because our boundaries are created by our mind, there may be no bounding thought.

Let us enter another world, most likely the real world. It may be the most daunting and most difficult thing to do. Because now you will have to ask your mind to shut-up and ask your heart to open up infinitely.

How is this world like? This is the world where the bounded mind meets the infinite. This is the world where you act first before you think and even better you don’t think. This is the world with pure entropy of actions. There are no thoughts just pure interactions with others like us. This is the world in another dimension, and even science says that there are infinite universes around you. May be this is the truth science will ultimately discover or may be not. May be this is your chance to find a new world and new universe by just changing your ways of interaction with the world you know. May be this will create a new level, a new dimension for you.

You just have a lifetime to live, so do you want to experience what is yours for delight. The problem here is I in my present state of awareness am still to find a way into that level of sustained experience. We may experience that feeling at brief moments but we do not sustain that experience.

But here are some ways you may be able to achieve it and maintain it:

  • Stop your thoughts altogether, stop thinking, achieve it, or at least achieve singularity in your thought. You can use various meditation techniques or any of your techniques
  • Interact with the world around you, and that means interacting with real people
  • Become more spontaneous in your behaviour, if you are planning something, then do it now instead
  • Become more emotional and more kind towards the world, people and nature
  • Always think of new ways of having fun and enjoyment
  • Bring happiness to the world around you
  • Become most confident and have no fear of anyone or any situation
  • We are all equals and neither you are so low or the other so downtrodden
  • Make at least one friend a day, talk interact and explore their thoughts
  • Read books and articles that inspire and make you happy
  • Be enthusiatic about everthing small or big
  • Bring out the passion and zeal in what ever you are doing
  • Do it now, whatever you have been planning
  • Interact with every one around and keep a smile on your face always from your heart
  • Start listening to your heart more than your mind

Get out of your shell and enter the real world now! It’s time.

When you should know, ‘It’s not worth it’

You have tried for things,

you have tried for emotions,

you have tried to chase your dream,

you have tried to chase your life,

you have tried to get the best,

you have tried to be the best,

you have tried to get her for your life,

you have tried to run after money,

you have tried to chase the fame,

you have tried to run a mile,

you have tried and tried because you have been taught never to fail,

but now is it time!

You have tried a lot, but have you ever thought about,

have you ever thought is it is worth the chase…!

Have you ever thought whether the dream, wealth, love, fame you have been chasing is worth the chase. The evaluation is important because you cannot do it infinitely and early you realise the better it will be for you. You have had a few runs in your life, chasing one of the above mentioned charms in life and you would have got some and lost some. If you got some you are lucky as well as unlucky at the same time, lucky for the obvious reasons, unlucky because you quest ended there. And you had to find or create a new quest in life. But if you got nothing in you chases, you are not doing bad either, because it’s the steps towards you prize that’s more fascinating than the reward itself.

The only limit one has in his or her life, is time. You can actually gain time by slowing down you pace of life. You can gain a lot of joy in life by doing things slowly, because time is relative. The more immersed you are in the moment, the more prolonged the experience will be and more detailed you observation will be.

But even with that time will pass, and there is a limit on time one has, so you should not be wasting too time, chasing an already lost dream, no matter how huge the satisfaction may be. You have to learn to exit, be it anything in your life. If you learn to exit at the right time, you will get all the happiness, wealth, health and love and joy that is there in the world.

So if you are wasting too much of you precious present seconds chasing, then do take rest, analyse and ask yourself the question: “It is worth the chase?”. You will get the answers there itself! And you get the answer don’t look back, just follow what you decided.
