Its just a thought...not only mine but of most of us. The mind asks, "Will I be anything one day?"
And my answer to this is... "No".
One can only be something 'today'. If I am not able to be someone today, I cannot ever be. All I have is today, tomorrow never comes. Past is gone, future is yet to be. All these sayings go together. So the only valid thing I can ask myself is... "What can I be today?" The first thing I can do every morning is to ask myself this question. Next thing I may do is to decide for it, and strive whole day to make it work. I cannot say to myself that I will be th president of the US today! But yes, if I take small steps today in this direction, I certainly can be the president one day. And my goal shall be to, meet ten people today...only one step at q time.
The second thing that is important is that I end my day with a similar question...did I do today what I was supposed to do? If yes, congratulations! And the next question is.. How could I have done better?; and a resolution of using the newly acquired understanding and knowledge where ever required from now onwards. If the answer to the original question asked in the evening is a no, then the next question could be...where did I lack? What could I have done better? and instead of feeling like a failure and blaming myself, I should look for some parts of my morning resolution which were filled, or partially filled. It will give me a confidence, and a hope. It also shall provide as the stepping stone for the next day's work... And I will keep going!
So can you! It's not difficult, but easier said than done, because it needs a certain level of commitment, focus and discipline. But what can we lose in giving it a try?
