.. A Letter From A LOOSER TURNED WINNER..
The topper of my school, the gold medalist of my college, a money packed job in my pocket and many companies wanting me to join their firm, a healthy and happy-go-lucky family ; but still I felt like a big looser. I already knew from the very start that I wasn't meant for a 9-5 job but much more and worthy than that. But like many others I wasn't born with a silver spoon. All that I achieved today took blood and sweat of both me and my parents. Just for the sake of financial stability I took up the job. But now when I am free of all my responsibilities this job seems as a burden and a speedbreaker which is stopping me to chase my dreams. When everything is fine, still I feel a void inside me, pleading to be filled by the smile of the poor and the blessings of the needy. Everytime I went by the city, the miseries around ached my heart. But now I had lost the courage to give upon my job, and start afresh. Dreaming big enough is not wrong in any way but it requires a lot of power and courage, and I had lost this courage. Being greedy to feed your dreams is not wrong, being greedy to achieve everything for yourself isn't wrong but I had lost that greed. I was bounded by the insecurity to fail. I was earning a lot of money but I wasn't earning what I wanted, what I dreamt of. I was feeling suffocated as if I have commited a crime. And yes I had.,the crime of killing my dreams, the crime for giving upon a good cause and the crime for stopping the chase of my and others happiness. But the power of hope kept me going. One day I wrote my resignation letter, touched the feet of my parents and filed my resignation. I was liberated from the bounds of files, meetings, and projects. I had already done a great amount of savings, with the help of my family I started an NGO, not for a particular cause, but for every cause that was good, for every cause that brought smile to faces. And here I am the proud recipient of the "Best NGO award", earning more than a CEO of any Multinational Firm.
Remember "When everything seems dark,
You can see the moons scars,
Don't loose hope
And shine like a star."
Aim high, there's nothing wrong in this, be selfish and greedy for yourself and your dreams but don't let that greed and Selfishness harm others. Be hungry, hungry for the success, for your happiness and above all satisfaction. Everyone has lived for themselves, try to live for others once and your worth will be complete. Be your own competitor and break your own records. Don't let others rule you and your life. Don't stop yourself from doing anything good you wished for, if you're determined God will show you numerous ways. Earning money is not everything, investing it in the right place matters. Not everyone can give up on their jobs, not everyone is a social activist but everyone, for sure is a human, sent by God to help other humans. Don't always invest money for the completion of your luxuries, sometime spend it for the needs of others. Everyone is unique in their own different ways but one similarity than no one can deny of is the identity of being human and the power that lies within it.
A LOOSER TURNED WINNER.
