Today is the day

Think about this. We all woke up this morning to the same world. For some of us the day is exciting and wonderful while for others it may be the worst day of their lives.
How come the same day can be so different? The day is the same, but the people who look at it are different. Hence it is not the day which creates the environment, but YOU. In fact only you have an influence on the environment. The environment has an influence on you only if you permit it.
I don’t know how many of you have heard this quote, “Nobody can make you feel inferior without your permission.” But all of us make statements like “he belittled me,” “she frustrates me,” or “he is making my life miserable” on various occasions. Nobody can make you feel inferior without your permission, nobody can frustrate you without your permission and nobody can make your life miserable without your permission. Because it is you who are in charge.
You have the best environment right now, if you have decided to succeed in life. India is growing at a breathtaking pace. Every sector in our economy is booming. All the economists of the world are of the opinion that India is unstoppable till the year 2020. By 2020, as former President Dr Abdul Kalam visualised, India would have emerged as the most powerful economy in the world. This cannot be stopped. In other words, you have the best environment during this time; provided you are ambitious, progressive and have got big plans in life. If you don’t qualify for any of these factors, these years are going to be the most horrible for you.
It is not the environment, but what you want to make from your life, what you want to do with your life that is the most important thing.
Take charge of your life today…and have a very productive week ahead.
