𝗧𝗵𝗲 𝗦𝘁𝗮𝘁𝗶𝘀𝘁𝗶𝗰𝘀 𝗼𝗳 𝟵𝟵% 𝗙𝗮𝗶𝗹𝘂𝗿𝗲 & 𝟭% 𝗦𝘂𝗰𝗰𝗲𝘀𝘀So most people do not take up challenges because they are well aware that of 100 people who try, 99 would fail and just 1 person would succeed. The non attempt at everything is seen as a smart choice. Why waste time chasing a mirage? Why not see the latest web series on Netflix? Or read juicy news on politics. Or take an Instagram selfie. Or earn brownie points at LinkedIn by following and liking the post of people who matter. There is so much to do for your own career, entertainment or things that matter. Why suffer the eventual heartbreak.Solid logic, it seems. But is it really?How did the modern man achieve the comfort he enjoys? And the safety from the lion in the bushes. We feel warm in freezing winters and cooler in scorching heat. How did it happen?It is because the earliest of human beings did not follow this logic. They worked hard to fight their challenges. Fire did not happen in an instant. To me it looks like something the early humans might have mastered over generations. Because even if we take two flint stones and try to light up a fire with them, I bet most of us will still fail. Language. Art. Dance. Everything happened because they all struggled against mighty odds like a collective. But we have it so easy that anything that causes unease is shunned like a dis-ease. We have become passive consumers of the gifts of thousands of years of hard work of our ancestors.So the 99% fail and 1% succeed law is dubious to say the least.I think of millions of men and women today, just a 100 take up the challenges they face. Out of these 100 out of millions of people just 1 man or woman succeeds. It is not the failure of 99 people. They were important to create the crude from which 1 enriched life emerged. No the 99 did not fail. They enabled 1 person to succeed. Empowered. The actual failure is of the millions who did not participate at all. Think how fast we can evolve if everyone took their challenges seriously. I think it is time to introspect. Each of us has been granted a gift. Some can make music. Another is good with numbers. The colleague we know gave up coding for a managerial job. I don't think there is even one single person who does not have a unique gift.But only a 100 out of millions believe in the gift they have. And they work on it and out of them 1 takes it to such a level that the entire mankind benefits from it.So next time if any of us try to discourage people attempting to make impossible as possible, they should please do a reality check on their own lives. Have they done justice to their gifts? If not, I think the least they can do is not to stop another person in their tracks.Who is this person people try to stop?A son. A daughter. Themselves. Their spouses. A friend.Please don't. Because aspirations are meant to fly on wings that need to grow and not be clipped even before they are formed.hashtag#believe hashtag#successActivate to view larger image, ... See MoreSee Less

I was wondering why the Govt has not created an FPL: Farmer Premier League. BCCI earned 2400 crores from IPL 2022 and kept 50% of the money in its own account. The players got richer by croresTeam sponsors earned crores.Broadcasters earned crores. Had the same competition been done for Farmer teams across India, we would have eliminated Farmer Poverty. We would have invested sponsors, corporates and broadcasters to uplift the plight of farmers just like we uplifted the quality of cricket.Look at what India was in cricket before IPL and look where it is today thanks to the crores of rupees that has increased competitiveness, improved training methods and inducted new technology in the game.Imagine what would be the plight of farmers and how it will be uplifted if the entire money making machine got into it.We need such reforms to reach the masses.#govtofindia #ModiHaiToMumkinHai #ipl #farmer #indianfarmer#indianfarming #ipl2024 #shahrukhkhan #indiancricketteam ...

Most writers are literary sanyasis.Writing their script/uresObserving life in the witness stateDoing karma which is not mindful of results, as publishing does not guarantee any returns Giving up attachments to material things to which the world clings for a higher purpose.
