I have done so many things in life, taken certain actions also. Today, when I look back, I ask myself, how on earth did I do it? If I had focused on my fears, or on my doubts, I wouldn’t have been able to do it. If I had looked at those who felt I wasn’t qualified to do it, I would have just sat down and remain ordinary. When I say ordinary, I am not suggesting that I am extraordinary – what I am saying is that as an ordinary person, I am living my dream by being an inspirational person. If I wasn’t, you wouldn’t be hearing my voice now!
When I stand to speak in front of people, it doesn’t mean I am not nervous – I am nervous but unwilling to let my nerves steal my dream. When I sit down to write an exam, it doesn’t mean I am not scared of failure – I am, but unwilling to let failure stop me from reaching my goal. When I tell people I can, it doesn’t mean that I always can, but I am unwilling to let the can’t stop me from making efforts to learn new stuffs. I am not superhuman, but I have decided to make efforts to do super things – you don’t need to be super to live your dream.
What are you scared of? What are your doubts? What are your concerns? Who told you, you can’t step on the platform you always admired? Who lied to you, that your vision is impossible to achieve? Who has been playing a mind game on you, deceiving you that what you see inside cannot be seen outside? If you believe the negatives, the lies, the impossibilities, the fears and scares, you will stay put on the level of insignificance, where you’re an eagle but with a chicken mentality. You are a talent, yes you are – you don’t need to be reminded all the time. When you look into the mirror, stop seeing a failure. When you stare at your shadows, stop seeing the unintelligent. When you view your reflection on the glittering surface of the sea, stop seeing a disappointment. Yes, you didn’t make it through people’s expectations, that doesn’t mean your time is up – you can still make it. Forget about age, just rage. Rage against impossibilities. Rage against the dynamites of failure. Rage against fears and doubts. You’ve got life in you – make every second count. Stop looking down on your IQ – you don’t need an IQ to be a genius – you were born a genius. You don’t need anyone’s spec to be special – you were born special, and you are special. Go back to the mirror where you first saw inadequate, and look into your inner self – see what a great value you are to humanity. If the world was complete without you, you wouldn’t be born. You have a duty to humanity, don’t let inferiority deny you your purpose on earth. Play your role on earth with dignity. Put a broad smile on your face. You owe no one apologies. Be yourself. Be who you were born to be.
