We yearn for connection, yet isolate ourselves. We seek love, but fear loss. We dream for someday, instead of trying for today. We want change, but don’t want to change. We over-consume, then wonder why there’s no space to create. We love the ocean, yet buy plastic. We advocate for education, then bury our students in loans. We want health, but for a price. We believe in equality, but struggle to bridge the gap of inequality. We ask for better leaders, but don’t think to lead. We wish for a better world, but not at the cost of comfort and convenience.
There’s a disconnect here. And it’s not any one persons fault. The world is made up of both beauty and brokenness. Most of the time, I believe we have our hearts in the right place. The problem is how overwhelming it all seems, but change is made up of small moments.
Change happens when we have been hurt, but choose not to act from our hurt. Change happens when we see someone who seems upset, and ask how we can support them. Change happens when we don’t pretend to have all the answers, but are willing to ask the uncomfortable questions.
The truth is, if we knew the whole story behind everyone’s actions, we would see why they are the way they are. And it doesn’t excuse it, but compassion is the birthplace of change. A COMPASSIONATE HEART IS THE KEY TO CHANGE.
I adore those who love to learn new things instead of being stuck in that zone of average betty mindset. The most beautiful thing about learning is that it stays with you & no one can take it away from you. Learning something & being educated is not just about few books or pre-programmed path of covering a syllabus/curriculum, it’s the ability to make your mind think critically. That’s the reason an educated person is respected. For better understanding, higher qualification or mastered skills are the real stature of any human being.
(There are bunch of dumbfucks/antivaxxers disowning the importance of vaccination. In USA, it’s basically Trump supporters & televagelists. In rest of the world, some French & German groups are spreading same propaganda. Stop refusing COVID vaccine. You getting vaccinated is important for me no matter where you live, because we all want to return back to a normal happy healthy open free safer world. In case you live in a village & your passport has no stamps whatsoever, then you can definitely say NO for the timebeing. Every unvaccinated person can be a birth ground for another mutated virus variant. So keep your social distance & mask handy till you receive your both shots of COVID-19 vaccine jab.)
Educate yourself. When a question about a certain topic pops up, Google it. Watch movies, YouTube videos and documentaries. When something sparks your interest, read about it. Read read read. Study, learn, stimulate your brain. Don’t just rely on the school system, educate that beautiful mind of yours.
Go to university, but go for the right reasons. Education isn’t a gun held to your head: it’s a weapon in your hands. Go not because you’re afraid of not getting a job but go because you love to learn, because you’re excited by ideas, because you believe that education is important for its own sake, and when you get there, pay attention, read everything you can get your hands on, cram yourself with words and figures and ideas, because that’s the one thing they can never take away from you. At the end understand Knowledge, Skills & Qualification, all are equally important parts of life.
The usual rate of success in any field of life is somewhere around 3% to 5%. What about rest 95-97% who are left out in the race? The answer lies in “LACK OF SKILL-SET CAUSING LACK OF SELF-CONFIDENCE”.
Developing the right set of skills is a major pillar of success. Confident people never neglect their skills & people with right skill-set are confident about what they do. So much of low self-confidence comes from not having the skills or training needed for great success. Those with confidence see clearly what they need to do to improve their chances of success. They are willing to commit the time and energy in improving their skills, advancing their training or getting more education in order to be more confident in their abilities. First master your SKILLS before marching on your journey to SUCCESS.
Destiny is not a chance and definitely it’s not given. It’s all about making right set of choices with an informed brain at right time. You have to be observant. You never wait for it because you have to achieve it. So three things to watch out here: AN INFORMED BRAIN, YOUR EFFORTS & RIGHT CHOICES IN RIGHT TIME.
Your efforts & choices may vary depending on what kind of person you are, it also depends on your upbringing. But an informed brain is the driving force here. In modern day, there is nothing called intelligence or IQ without being informed. Information is the real knowledge. If you want to stay ahead of the curve, keep educating yourself every single day about what’s happening around you and also what’s right/wrong with the world you live in. DESTINY IS MEANT FOR THE DOERS WITH INFORMED MIND.
(I like this song. Nothing to do with the post above.)
Education & Qualification are two different things which revolve around your curiosity to grasp more KNOWLEDGE. Now here when I talk about qualification, I actually mean what’s your journey of studying/pursuing something in high school/college/university. But when I talk about being educated/education, I mean how curious you are towards more knowledge!! Your urge to learn something new makes you more knowledgeable & your urge to earn a qualification makes you more educated. It’s your enthusiasm towards learning something new which makes all the difference.
So many of us humans are moderately qualified but merely educated. And I literally get bored around such people. People with urge to learn more are highly attractive in my eyes, it’s all about KNOWLEDGE & being curious towards that new ENTHUSIASM.
