You.

“You are a wonderful being. You are the reason that someone smiles. There is nothing that you cannot achieve. So, trust yourself and do what you love to.”

This date, marks one year of this blog. I started this blog to bring out the best in people, but the more people I reached out to, the more I saw them running away from themselves and that’s when I realized, a person can be motivated only when they are ready.

There were many reasons behind this. Some didn’t trust themselves. Some underestimated themselves. Some were jealous of others. Some were filled with fear. Some hated themselves. Some were lost. Some were clueless and what not.

Let me be honest here, everyone in the world has been through this. No one is perfect. Doubts can be cleared. Fear can be conquered. Hate can be faded. The lost can always find a new place to live.

Life is short, but to live it short is not a good idea. If you feel that you are losing, just look around, there would be millions like you. But if you continue your path towards success, you would see a lesser crowd, all continuing their journey to be awesome and when you finally reach the top, you will feel why you had to doubt yourself all along. The reason there are less people at top is just because the rest of the crowd feel that they are unworthy of the position and never try. Some may hate the hard work, but ask any artist who loves to paint, about hard work, and you’ll know that hard work for them is a happy time because it’s their passion. They might need smart work too. If you follow your passion, your work might not seem that hard after all.

No wonder Swami Vivekananda, “You are the creator of your own destiny.”

Your life lies in your very own hands. One cannot expect the egg to hatch as soon as it is laid and it will only hatch when the creature inside is ready. Motivation works the same way. No amount of guidance will work if the person inside is not ready.

If you want help and you are not getting it, then you are not ready for it yet. You’ll get help when you are ready for it. You’ll ask for it.

If nothing is going according to your plan, then it is going according the Lord’s plan. And trust me, His plans are way more exciting than yours.

Never give up. Giving up is easy. That is why people who think they have lost everything, give up. But in reality, if you have nothing to lose, then what’s the use of giving up? That’s why winners never give up.

“Winners never quit and Quitters never win.”
~Vince Lombardi

Be mindful of your thoughts. They define you. Your thoughts may be the reason why you are what you are and may be that is why you are here. To be yourself.

If you are who you are just because someone has asked you to be what you are now, then I feel bad for you. If you really want to be something amazing, just be yourself. Be you because there is no other person in this world like you, and I know you. You are one amazing friend. You are beautiful. You are the best person I’ve connected with and you are here to win and let me tell you one thing: You have the power to be the best.

As Uncle Ben or Benjamin “Ben” Parker once said:
“With great power, comes great responsibility.”

“What it is that you have to do, and what it is that you have to be, that, your soul will tell. Who will be on your side, and who will be against you, that, the time will tell.
But who you are, and what you ought to be, that, you will tell.”
~Amith Chhabria.

Oh and yes, as the topic suggests, I dedicate this post to you, and if you still doubt yourself, just visit this page back and remember that we love you. Will be back with another electrifying post, until then, just LIVE yOUR LIFE.

“There are mysteries to the universe we were never meant to solve. But who we are and why we are here, are not among them. Those answers, we carry inside.”

Life without ART!

Answer this:

How would it be if there would not be any laughter? How would it feel if no one had a sense of humour?
Any thought on that?? Good, Bad or worst??

If your answer is any way in positive, I feel sorry for you…
Anyhow, I want to ask you another question…

What if there was no art in it??

Yes, ART… It could be in any form dance, music, literature, painting, etc..

I asked few people the same question!

I’m combining the answers altogether:

“Art is about self-expression and creativity. Creativity gave birth to everything currently… And if there was no art, there would have been a great void in the world; it would have made the world colourless.  For example, “Wheel” it may look like a small circled thing, but the invention of it gave birth to transportation; it helped textile industry, electricity and many things.
No art means thinking inside the box, in short keeping the human brain locked up in a prison. That way, there would be no creativity. When there’s no creativity, there would be no innovation that would stop the progress in any field!
Human being has a bundle of wants; art plays a vital role in satisfying it! We require music, books etc., to keep us entertained! Sometimes they also help us get out of depression; it is a friend that stays with us no matter what.
Human beings are given an upper hand for a simple reason, they are creative, and a human himself is an art! A beautiful creation! If we take out the creativity, what would be the difference between humans and the other animals?
In Simpler words, Life Without Art is similar to life without breath.”

The best part was, no one gave similar answer. Everyone had something different to answer. It is not surprising that no two people gave similar answer to even what art is…

You can compare different dictionaries, not many words would be given similar definition.
So, that shows how important art is! We have lived in this world for millenniums… The reason why we have come this far is only because of art…

You might be wondering, ‘how can everyone answer for the support of creativity?’

Well, I asked people of different age groups! Out of all the people who answered the question, only one person had something against creativity. That person said, “Everything has a positive and a negative effect. Creativity is just expanding our thinking capacity. Good creativity led to the discovery of pen whereas bad creativity led to the discovery of weapons. It’s just how one uses the power. So, in one way the absence of creativity might lead to no peace, no harmony, whereas it might end up the production of things which are harmful to us.”

To that I want to answer one thing, if weapons weren’t discovered there would have not been any human kind alive, the early men used the weapons for protection from dangerous creatures. Now, we might not require any weapons, but that guy said it himself, it all depends on how you use it.
A friend of mine asked me, “Hey, you scored amazing marks, why aren’t you trying in any top 10 colleges?”

C’mon, marks won’t keep you happy. Yes, my mark is good, I could have gotten in few of those top colleges, but why should I select them? Where ever I end up going, all I would do is dig into my creativity.

“ART IS THE MOST INTENSE FORM OF INDIVIDUALISM THAT THE WORLD HAS KNOWN.”
~OSCAR WILDE

We have ended up with a generation in which, 50% of the population doesn’t even know they are creative, 25% are aware of their creativity but are following the society and who end up calling the successful people “lucky”, 15% want to follow their passion but they don’t just because of what the society would think, the remaining 10% of the population are the one who chase their passion and encourage their as well as everyone’s creativity.
Ever heard of this?

“YOU ARE THE CREATOR OF YOUR OWN DESTINY”
~Swami Vivekananda

When something is created, the person who makes it doesn’t start with the direct idea of making it, he feels something has to be made for this reason, for example, the creator of umbrella wanted to make something to save him from getting wet or to escape the extreme heat, that’s when his creativity kicked in!

“THE AIM OF ART IS TO REPRESENT NOT THE OUTWARD APPEARANCE OF THINGS, BUT THEIR INWARD SIGNIFICANE.”
~ ARISTOTLE

Art acts the same way salt acts to food, but the only difference is, the more the art, the happier may the life be! Art is just like meditating, it brings out the feelings of the inner soul, which is very hard to describe. That’s the reason why it is difficult for people to describe, poems, songs, paintings etc., in words, it reflects the inner language!

If people would make their passion to their profession, the world might be a better place or the least they could do is encourage others, instead of criticizing it! The path may be difficult, harsh and may seem impossible to reach, but the journey, the life is worth the pain!
I almost forgot one of the best sayings on art:

“EARTH WITHOUT ART IS JUST ‘EH’!”
~Unknown.

Few days back, I met one of my cousins after a gap of around 10 years, almost at the end of the conversation, he asked me, “You don’t talk much?” I simply answered, “Ha-ha! Being a poet, I let my poems do the talking!”
In my words, everyone is a born as a poem and goes on becoming a poet when he starts to live the life!

“IF ART IS TO NOURISH THE ROOTS OF OUR CULTURE SOCIETY MUST SET THE ARTIST FREE TO FOLLOW HIS VISION WHERE-EVER IT TAKES HIM.”
~ JOHN F. KENNEDY

So, art and creativity do play a major role in this world.. But it also matters how you one uses it!
I thank everyone who gave in their opinion… Do tell, what your opinion is.. I’ll be back with another amazing post.. Until then, just LIVE yOUR LIFE!
