The Circle of Life

The Circle of Life

Finally! graduation is complete and we got our bachelor’s degree. Mission accomplished with a job and a promise of giving handsome salary in hand. Everyone is finally settled so, now what? Is this supposed to be like this?

I was hearing a song named “The circle of life” and had this thought into my mind that what’s so special about whatever we have done so far. What’s the purpose of all this? Did we ever try to understand the reason of being here? I believe that after studying from one of the top university, we are not common people and there is something bigger which we haven’t figured it out yet. God has given us a lot and there must a reason which we all should think about it.

Each year thousands of graduates wear gown, get degrees, return their gown and go home. Next year same system is going to repeat with new faces and hope. A complete well-mannered system is written for us and it’s repeating persistently with different faces every year.

We get a job at the end of our graduation and are called software engineers. We spend time daily from morning to evening and then go back home. At the end of the month we get a salary and we throw a party and live a happy life. In a year, we get a title of senior software engineer and then project manager.  Meantime someone else gets our old designation and then a day will come when we will be ditched out as a retired engineer. They will replace us and others will replace them. Isn’t our life confined into circle of these so called complex routines? From morning to evening to goodnight, we are just part of this system and one day we all are going to die and people are going to forget us and system will replace us by others.  That’s how the nature works. That’s how the circle of life drives.

Only those are remembered who indeed forced themselves to be the change they wanted to see in the world. Only those are remembered who indeed did something precious for the society, for the county, for the world, and for the greater humanity and that is the actual responsibility of those un-common people because with great power comes with great responsibility. They were chosen to be one of those who were supposed to take care of common people. That’s how nature balances itself.

We are among those fortunate who got chance to live the best life. We studied in best school, college, and university. Our parents invested hell a lot of money not because, after graduation, we live an easy life. You are not a person who lived a poor life and there must be a reason. You are the chosen one and yet you haven’t figured it out yet. Today we all work for western people. Name a single software house or organization, running by us, for which westerns are working? Name a single software house or organization that doesn’t work for them? Why? Because they realized this long ago that they are not common people. They created obstacles for us, and they let us feel that we are only slaves and that we can’t get success because we aren’t the chosen one. We are those frustrated, demotivated people who are living a dead life because we neither have strong will power nor dedication.

I believe the only ingredient that improvises the idea of being prosperous in life is dedication & having strong will power. Until and unless you are not going to follow it you can’t get success. This is the only path which will lead you to the idea where thousands of common people will get a chance of survival. I have seen people who just talk and talk but they don’t have implementation perhaps their will power is not strong enough or they aren’t dedicated at all. They have potential but they don’t have guidance or support or they don’t know how to build that bridge through which they are going to see that success path. Others give up just because of a failure. Remember one thing; a failure shall not affect the entire future.

I believe you don’t need guidance or support but if you are getting it then you are lucky. The only thing that counts is “believe in you”. If you believe in yourself then regardless of billion failures you are going to achieve it.

We people are so lazy that we wish to have everything without having passion to have it. We do think that we are going to do this or that thing but then we stuck and forget about it and then one day we realize that we are a looser. We go into a depression and when others ask we say I never got such guidance or support or resources. Remember I told you; you are lucky if someone is guiding or supporting you. This is a bonus point but if you are not having it then it doesn’t mean that you are below the curve. Everyone gets equal points in this world. Total net package is always equal but points are simply unevenly distributed. You just need to figure it out the best of you in it. Success is only going to follow those who truly desire for it. Your passion is what tells the intensity of having it. Aim for big but always work on one block at a time. If you have a desire to develop a top iPhone game then go for it. Remember, you will face the resistance because in this world there is no such ideal thing. You are going to listen that hey there are 71 thousand games on iPhone app store. What is the probability that your game will be selected for top 10 games? Aren’t you wasting your time? If that happens then show them (flex) because if you give up then there is no difference between you and that common person.

Initiating something is always the biggest problem that we face. We don’t know where to start or we just find it difficult. As I said before, break your idea into blocks and complete block by block. Builders don’t build entire building in a day. They know their target. They have plans and final rendered image of that building but observe, they will always start from zero. They put one block at a time and they persistently do it until their idea or aim comes into existence. Second problem that we face is time. Time is the biggest obstacle and barrier. Remember, time is not going to stop for you. It’s your responsibility how you manage your time.

You will feel tired and people will say you to have rest. This is where the intersection of two different path lies. You are standing at a point from where two different path leads. One is for common people and other one requires greater dedication. Your will power will become vulnerable and you will feel attraction towards easy path. Your heart will be filled with desire to go and have a long sleep. Your body temperature will be lowered and stream of blood passing through veins will force you to accept what your heart is filled with. This is the time where your dedication and believe will call you. Deep down in lobe of your brain an idea in the form of neural pattern will call you. You will be in a position where you will need to make a choice and this will be the time where you will need to go against your will and you will choose the hard path and yes, you have built successfully your first block of that bridge. Yes, your will power is now overwhelmed by an idea of doing something big and bandwidth of your blood flow is upsurge. You just crossed the alternate universe – The universe which is defined to work for greater humanity.

“With great power comes with great responsibility. Remember, you are not a common person”

    True, people don’t realize that they have the potential of doing something out of the ordinary.

    People think that if they deviate from the path the circle takes, they’re violating a rule, which is naive.
