The eyes seem cloudy, but you cannot stop. You need to run like a mad hound as fast as you can, believing that some day this hound will reform to become a handsome man and that day all the sweat that you had shed will attain its reason. But this race is just equivalent to a tyrant’s kingdom and the faith imparted is like his promise which is never to be believed. He will exploit all your energy for his own welfare and when exhausted shall throw you away.
Still, we follow this path. We run in this race not knowing where to go, not able to define ourselves, just believing in a virtual cause.
In this world we have got races at every step. Starting from admission in kindergarten school to admission in college or Post Graduation we have to run believing we will get a very good job. But then the same job frustrates us. What we attain from this is nothing except a mechanical existence.
Some people are so inert that they won’t accept this fact and say otherwise. They say this race is needed. Maybe, they do not have any idea of people like Steve Jobs, Albert Einstein and many more. Steve Jobs left his graduation in between and is now presently CEO of Apple and Pixar animations. Albert Einstein could never figure out what happened in school so he left school itself and his success rate was more, he won a Nobel Prize.
For achieving success what one simply has to do is follow his heart and nothing else. All achievers we know have done so. But for doing that one needs to have a well defined cause, faith on himself, and guts to face anything that comes in the way. The one lacking the above requirements follow the well defined path, which has a hypothetic cause.
Some of the lines Steve Jobs said in his speech at Stanford University.
“You have to trust on something, your gut, destiny, life, karma whatever. Believing that the dots will connect down the road will give you the confidence to follow your heart, even when it leads you off the well worn path and that will make all the difference.”
