I have always been a Motivational Speaker. Writing was always on the agenda but I always thought I am okay writer. That’s why, when I ended up penning this inspirational Hindi poem – I did surprise myself a little too 🙂
This one is about trying to live better, but failing spectacularly – because of our own tendencies to waste the time of our lives!
Yaa to hum ‘Saamaan ikathaa kar rahein hain’
Yaa fir ‘Gyaan ikatha kar rahein hain’
Aisay jee rahein hain ki jaise ‘Zindagi aaj nahin ; kal aani hai
Aur aaj sirf hum kal ki taiyaari kar rahein hain’ …
Pata almost sab hai — Kyaa karnaa hai ;
Lekin phir bhi implement karne se Dar rahein hain
Zindagi aek ‘MAINTENANCE’ mode pe chal rahi hai;
Par soch rahein hain ki ‘Hum taraqi kar rahein hain?’
Apne ‘Swaad’ aur ‘Chaskey’ lene ki aadat se
Aek khoobsurat si zindagi ko complicate kar rahein hain
Shayad zindagi mein kaam sirf 5 karne hain ; lekin hum 20 kar rahein hain
Eis saari confusion mein ‘apne aap se lad rahein hain’
Issay jeena thoday hee naa kehte hai ; Hum to sirf TIMEPASS kar rahein hain…
A successful, peaceful & a ‘HAPPY’ life is a result of a progressive reduction of a ‘peculiar habit’ of ours. I am talking of a deep rooted HABIT of our mind- which just keeps on creating ‘Self-created ISSUES’ in our life.
There are some issues which are beyond us e.g. ‘How you Look’ because of your genetic makeup or an ISSUE like ‘your parents fight a lot’. There is not much you can do about such issues. ‘Acceptance’ ONLY will help; over a period of time.
The bigger issue is the ‘Self-created issues’. These are the ISSUES which are either usually out of your ‘over reaction’ or out of your habits of extreme indulgence in ‘duniyaadari stuff’ e.g. excitements, egos, greed, wanting to be in the limelight, uncontrolled sexy fullness, lesser restraint in your speech.
We first create PROBLEMS because of our mediocre habits and then one day we get fatigued / die while trying solving those ‘self-created’ problems. (Read: How to Eliminate Mediocrity from Life)
Most of these / such ISSUES arise because ‘We are trying to defend an IMAGE of ours; which we have given to the world’. E.g. the world calls me a refreshing trainer, people think I am ‘COOL’ & I have a sense of humor. Now next what will happen is that ‘I will LINK everything that I do socially to this IMAGE of mine’. The ISSUES start when I jabardasti try to live upto my duniyaadari image. While trying to do so; I end up doing more stuff than what is required of me; actually. Like a fission reaction these ISSUES compound and I further exert more to solve them. Even if you are living up to an IMAGE ; maybe you can go in for a better ‘IMAGE quality’.

90% of the life’s struggles; which I see people doing especially between the ages 20 & 50 are AVOIDABLE. The genesis of most of these struggles is ‘self-creation’.
‘Wo kaam hee kyun karnaa jissay karne ki zaroorat nahin’.
Avoid controversies and especially reduce your habit to ‘create a controversy out of nowhere’. This will help you SAVE tremendous energy. You can then use THIS saved energy towards your GOALS. You’ll feel lesser TIME PASSING then in your beautiful life. (Read: 4 Critical Ways to Stop Wasting your Time)
Remember, Time Pass = Time FAIL !!
Agar aap sabse lambe raastey se manzil pe pahunchay bhi gaye to kyaa ?
Raastey mein Mazaa nahin aaya, to aap manzil pe pahunch bhi gaye to kyaa ?
Pahunchney ke baad; saans nahin lee aur duniyaa ko bataney mein hee busy ho gaye to kyaa ?
Koi bhi Manzil door na ho ; agar hamaari nazar manzil par hee ho…
Safar bhi mast hoga ; agar ‘self-created issues’ chotey aur himmat badi ho…
Agar aisaa ho ; to aapki duniyaadaari hee aapki karegi ‘Jai Ho!’
