Each and every individual have their own way to live their life but one thing is very common that most of them wishes to see one day miracle in their life – it’s a different matter that it happens only with very few of them. (Also refer last blog of Pentagraph – penned by Meghashyam about miracle (Miracle Happens But ……). It simply proves that only wish to have great thing in life would not do , this only does not have the power to bring great changes to your life.
Then what will… ???
I think the CHANGE ( Willingness to Change , ability to change and Confidence and adoptability to Change ) does have all the ingredient to get miracle in your life but is very painful .Will start from our day to day life . We know that we must get up early in the morning for the various benefit but is really very difficult. Many of us ,set up alarm to get up in the morning but when the time comes in the morning, we very conveniently switch it off to continue our sleep for some more time promising ourself that will do it from tomorrow onwards definitely .Think, if this, a simple habit – can’t be changed – changing for investment definitely would always remain a very difficult task.
People feel happy listening about great successful individual and clap for them – remember they are great because of the flexibility /Changes- they have adopted in their life – must have gone through the pain of getting up early in life .If there is a desire of great things – adopt the CHANGE which would give certainly pain for some time but joy for all through life. We advise to young employed individuals – who just have started working to start SIP of 5000/- and increase 10% every year – which could bring excellent wealth to them after 20/25 yrs. –very few are willing to believe in this… but it happens …Miracle happens.
One simple story, I would like to narrate to make you understand how difficult is to change. This has been taken from Mahabharata.
All the learned men of Mahabharata decided to give one barren parcel of land to Pandava to avoid clashes between Kauravas and Pandava .Finally, the barren land was given to Pandava. The Pandava was very upset but finally Krishana- their advisor, made them agree to accept this as their luck and start their onward journey from there itself – the place was known as – Khandavaprastha. After years of hard work the Pandava made the barren land like heaven and renamed this as – Indraprasta .
Few years later, Pandava invited – all their relatives to Indraprasta to celebrate their success. As we know – all from Hastinapur has come and enjoyed the celebration but Duryodhan was very upset seeing their success and said to his Mama – Shakuni – that he needed – Indraprasta also otherwise he would sacrifice his life .
Shakuni said – don’t worry Bhanje (Nephew) , I would help you and asked Duryodhan to invite Yudhisthira to play Juwa (Gambling).The invitation went to Yudhisthira and they called a meeting . All Pandava except Yudhisthira was opposing for this but finally agreed as big brother wanted to go and enjoy this game leaving all worries. Finally, we all know what happened – Yudhisthira lost everything – his entire Kingdom, Brothers, wife including himself.
After this win, in the evening the celebration was on and everyone in the Kauravas gang was enjoying. At one corner – Duryodhan and Shakuni were too enjoying and during the conversion – Duryodhan asked Mama- how could you do this ?. Shakuni has given a very simple answer that Yudhisthira is a habitual jurari .He always used to play and enjoy this game.
The moral of the story is – the man irrespective of his knowledge, wisdom & experience – can’t leave easily their habits, like many of us failed to wake up early in the morning. So, changing the habit is really very difficult .That is the very reason – we failed to make people understand to save for future by starting a very small investments and the flexibility and courage to change is acceptable to only 2% people.
One final thing – if you would have observed in the entire Mahabharata – whenever Pandava was in trouble, their Advisor – Krishna had saved them but this was the only reference where Krishna – the advisor was not there.
So, I am leaving you all to think … the role – might be of an advisor – in your journey!
