The Net Worth of Life – 3

‘I can do, I should do, I will do and I must do’. These were the writings writings on the wallon the walls of higher secondary exam aspirant Chandresh Bhutani’s one room home. He had glued previous year’s HS toppers names on the wall and pasted his photograph too with 96% marks.

Ratilal, his father, just lost his job as a diamond polisher due to economic downturn, borrowed money to facilitate his education. His mother had started a tiffin service to fuel the household expenses. Chandresh appeared in HS final. The results were announced and he scored a 94.43% and stood second in the state board. He said ‘My family and I had to suffer a lot and I hope to change all of it even for others’. Chandresh kept the end in the mind ‘an escape from the poverty’ through education. His success came as writings on the wall.

Usain Bolt imagines standing ovation of crowed, during his practice Usain Boltsessions in empty stadiums. He travels from the success to the efforts. This approach makes his real success look effortless. He remains stress-free, focused, happy and ecstatic through his preparations. That enables him to go off like a nuclear reactor on those ‘D’-days of events.

One very apt example could be when we learnt bicycling in our childhood. We never focused at and so were never scared of the risk of falling down and fracturing our bones. Rather we carried an image in our mind of ‘riding a bicycle and going to school’. We learnt it, as if effortlessly. This approach makes small people achieve big things and live larger than life status. This success to effort approach certainly increases one’s net worth of life.
