Life isnt a straight line

Life gives you a lot. It gives you million reasons to smile. It makes you laugh, sigh, angry and sometimes, makes you cry. It teaches you at every bit of minute.

Sometimes it gives you a punch on your face and stupefies you and in next moments it life teachesmedicates you.

Every day we learn something. Life has a meaning, which provides something to us, something relevant which directly affects us and our society.

Here, the main question isn’t what life teaches us, but the main question is what we learn from life. How we make it large and influencing.

Above figures are life graphs as they reflect the pattern of life.

Graph at your left resembles stock market chart which has lots of ups and downs. As you can see there are 7 days in a week on the X-axis and these days are never same emotionally nor physically.

Monday you may be suffering from “Monday-Phobia” after having an enjoyable and pleasant weekend. Tuesday you may get indulged in the work and then you start flowing with the flow till Friday. The sixth day brings smiles and happiness on your faces. Weekends are always great fun, aren’t they?

Seven days are not same and it should not be same. It indicates there are lots of happenings in our life no matter a positive one or a negative.

Positive one gives confidence, internal satisfaction and happiness. While negative ones give us a learning experience. We must not get demoralized from these negative kicks. I don’t call them failures. Failures are learning lessons of life.

When you do not understand what exactly you want to do in your life, when you have no ideas about your goals and you have no sketch plan to achieve them or you simply are confused with your life then you see your life like a straight line graph.

A life without a goal is like a necklace without a diamond. A plain life starts and it injects pain, leave us frustrated. Life becomes lifeless just like stagnant water in a pond.

If your life is moving ahead just like a straight line, then my dear friend you are moving in the wrong direction and will surely land in trouble and cursing your luck.

“Big ships always sail against the wind and tides in the unpredictable oceans while boats floats in the lakes.

I still remember incredible words from Steve Jobs, “Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle.

Yesterday, someone told me, “Aviral why you want to start a business? You are doing well enough and the better part is you are living your life without tensions. Starting a business is full of tensions, headaches and it has many challenges to crack.”

Is life without a challenge a life? I don’t think so, do you?

Don’t get settled. A life without challenges will leave you paralyzed. Keep looking what you love to do and start it once you find it passionate.

Don’t waste time after thinking. Plan it. Jot down the points, take necessary actions and make it happen. We are not here to talk about other’s successes.

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than
by the ones you did do.  So throw off the bowlines.  Sail away from the safe harbor.  Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” 

– Mark Twain

No Strife, No Life

Life_Updowns

When we were kids, we enjoyed every moments of our life. When we grew older and entered in teen’s worlds, we got to know a bit about life like a newly born bird comes out of nest and face the dirty world. We started feeling minute level of pressures especially in exams or our so-called-love-life as we indulged ourselves in our love though it was just an infatuation.

As soon as we enter in the world of professionals and corporate we got the real taste of life. When we got married and have family we got to know the word ‘Responsibility’.

Life is not a linear. It’s like stock market graph chart. Rise and falls, ups and downs. stock graphTwists and turns.

When we wake up in the morning we feel fresh and morning dew and fragrance make us rejuvenated. As the day proceed and things keep coming on us, our mood starts fluctuating. Cause of fluctuation may be office work, relationships, family or any external forces. Whatever the reason be, it spontaneously changes our mood and we feel disheartened or happy.

When we talk this at macro level, we call it Life.

Life is like a roller coaster ride. It gives you bumps at every interval.

Rather than taking it as a frightening experience, we must take it as a learning experience. We must enjoy the ride like we enjoy a roller coaster ride.

I love it when I feel pressure. I love it when I pass through bad phase. I love it when some irrelevant weeds crop up in my life.

Because these, teach me lessons. I learn a lot, examine others and try to find out how to react on these circumstances and trust me this is extremely helpful for our future when we may (obviously will) face bigger issues than today. At that time, we can link to those issues with we faced earlier in life which gives us hint for the optimum solution. It gives us energy to handle the pressure. It teaches us to stay calm in these tougher situations and our maturity level increases.

I personally, have seen many matured people who react weirdly when they face tough situations. They start blaming, shouting and sometimes start badmouthing. You must have seen big politicians, celebrities reacting to media. You guessed right, who enjoys the game and who gets trapped, we all know.

I won’t say, they lose their temper after getting bombarded with these bad happenings, rather I would say they get trapped by these situations. Guess what, we keep repeating the mistakes going forward and never learn.

In these tough situations of life or controversies we must never:

  1. Lose temper
  2. Get panic
  3. Get frightened
  4. Speak abruptly and
  5. React

Just stay calm and be silence for the time being.  Take a deep breath, hold it, count 10 and release slowly. Do it for three times and you will get a solution and feel relaxed.

Go to a calm serene place and think twice, thrice before uttering a single word because harsh words can ruin someone’s life and yours for sure.

These are just temporary and will leave but if not handled properly and smartly will give you a deep impact on your life.

“Thank you for life, and all the little ups and downs that make it worth living.”
