Have you ever wondered what differentiates a legend from a common man? What is that they have and we don’t have? What makes them a hero?
If you ever go through the biographies of people like Dhirubhai Ambani, Bill Gates, and Steve Jobs or study the life of leaders like Mahatma Gandhi, A.P.J Abdul Kalam or Mother Teresa, you will find one thing in common; they believed in something and dedicated their entire life to that belief.
You can call that “something” a principle, a vision, an ideal, a philosophy or simply a “funda.”
What transformed Agnes, an Albanian origin catholic geography teacher into Mother Teresa (now Saint Teresa) or what made Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi, an Indian origin Barrister in South Africa, the father of nation, Mahatma Gandhi?
The answer is a “eureka moment”, the moment where they realized what are they born for and their principles they valued the most, their “life ka fundas” and decided to dedicate their whole life to these fundas.
The realization that she wanted to help those who had none to help them and the firm decision to give up everything to make this funda her sole purpose of life, no matter how challenging it would be, transforming a school teacher Agnes into world renowned Saint Mother Teresa.
One fine day Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi was thrown of the train on the platform in South Africa. He got up realizing what would be is purpose. Rest is a story we all know. He only lived on two fundas 1.non- violence 2.non- cooperation. He gave his life and energy to it making India free of British rule.
No physical strength, intellectual power, educational qualification or material wealth is needed to become a legend or a hero. The ability to know and work with your strengths and your dedication towards it makes all the difference.
Remember,your “life ka funda” is what defines you. It is what the world relates in you as. It’s just like a brand name for you. It is who you are, it decides the purpose of your life. Discover your life ka funda and when you do, just go for it, no matter what people say. Overcome all the hurdles stopping you from being successful.
Always remember ‘Passion without Priority is Powerless’
This life is your only opportunity to make it humungous in any aspect of life, discover the true potential in you and create a revolution. Legends are those who are intellectual in knowing what they want from life and emotionally involved in getting what they want from life…
Create a blue print of your goal intellectually and be in the process of achieving it emotionally. The emotional attachment to the bigger picture will help you overcome the hurdles, problems and trifles easily. Chatrapati Shivaji Maharaj a history maker of the Maratha kingdom is a true example of this. He always had the Funda clear in his heart and mind ‘it does not matter what and how much I have, what really matters is what I do with what I have…
As you travel on your timeline let this present look like someone else’s past a few years from now. Rediscover yourself ones again, find what is that you are made of and made for…So, thank you so much for reading this!!!!!! WISHING YOU PEACE AND ABUNDANCE…. Ashay Shah
