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.

The Net Worth of Life – 2

falling rocket stages
Baggage of Past

A stage of a rocket falls down when it’s done with the fuel in it. The next vigorous one takes over the propelling task only then. It’s a relay from the hands of the past to the hands of the future. Present enjoys the moments being the baton. The show goes on and a rocket flies high. This is mapped, planned and proactively engineered.

We fall behind in the stages of our lives when we carry along empty fuel tanks. Old ones don’t detach and fresh ones never catch fire. We are victimized by our very own perpetual habits. We are anchored by the past yet hover in the future; our cataleptic present gets grounded in slums. Vibrant ‘Will’ gets zapped, canned and decomposed in life yard.

A rocket never carries extra luggage: that’s a fruitless burden and a drag for it. Why then we cling to rotten obsolete capabilities and practices for good? When past laurels are drags, why not shade them off and be light to fly high? Why are we in eternal love with our bygones and say “gone are the days?” Why do we not embrace the current and say “Wao are the moments”?

Great people give up rigidity and become H2O. They exterminate ego for ego is the receptionist to the malicious inelastic den. They Prevent fallbacks and fall in the hands of ‘chameleon habits’. One common habit of great people is the habit of reading and writing. Reading engages the bohemian mind and pilots the navigation systems. It re-energizes and rejuvenates ‘will’. Writing infuses positive electrical charges into it and digs out colorful inks from the depth of mind mine. These colors connect. Reading and writing help liberating us from the bondage of past laurels and from the traps of the alluring predictions.

 We start hearing – the ripples of rills, chirpings of birds,

cries of orphans and sighs of the olds.

We start seeing – burns of deprivation, marks of injustice,

flushing of anger and the rebels of bolds.

We start feeling – the cold of hopelessness, warmth of hugs,

romance in the iris and the nudges of our kins.

We start smelling – fragrances of Jasmines, smokes of disgust,

Scents of the rain and colognes of our teens.

Reading and writing conjointly is the ignition button, once pressed, add colors to lifewe are fired – out of our own enslaved self-shells. Reading and writing gives us ability to push ourselves out of past and pull ourselves out from future and thus make us able to hook on to the moments of truth. They increase the value of our living and improve summation of our net worth.

The Net Worth of Life – 1

When we enjoy a cool 10 degree centigrade inside a luxurious car we are unaware about the temperature inside the engine. Frankly IMG_3616speaking how many times we even thought about it? However this realization brings us to think on the background efforts needed in accomplishing essentially anything in life. Think about dining in an exquisite  restaurant or a smooth sail with Viking River Cruises or a superb speech by Barack Obama, all have some common things, unseen. Hidden behind the curtains of jazzy performances, they are these twin Ps’: Practice and Preparation.

They are modest and they never show up. Neither do they claim credit. But just like the chords of a Bass guitar in an orchestra they are only to be felt in the totality of the performance. They are just a notch louder than silence. World is interested only on the climax of our performance. What it takes to take us up to those well recognized performances are those twin Ps. These twins have the mother: analysis and the father experience. When they both met what’s born was the first P- Purpose. Twin Ps are younger sisters to this big brother. Intution is their grandma. Once one focuses on these 3 Ps there comes eventually the 4th one: Performance.

Next time you are a judge and a contestant is performing on the stage or you are hiring a person for your organization or evaluating the performance of a sports person or checking the worksheets of your child, you need to decide where to give them the marks. To “On the stage” performance or “Behind the stage” preparatory efforts! TreeCall is yours, for performance fixes our price but efforts send coded messages about our net worth. Our ability to quickly jump off the block is our asset. Our disability to kill procrastination is our liability. Our Net worth is thus directly proportional to the drops of sweat we shade on the job, mental or physical. It’s not only about the number of fruits those are displayed on the branches of the life tree but also the number of stormy seasons the tree had stood strong. Roots of integrity rooted deep enough to hang on matters the most.
