Along with being a man of action, I am an observant. Based upon my interactions with multitudes of people and personal experiences, I have proposed some invigorating advice. I'm sure if you try to encompass them in your lives, then success would be a byproduct of your karma.
Being a jack of all trades, and master of none, won't work. There's no problem in knowing something of everything, but you should also know everything of something. Be dazzlingly adept in some particular field, taking into account your interest, feasibility and practicability. Only a maven is recognized amidst the ordinary.
Of course, never miss an opportunity to emulate whatever good you can
grasp from anywhere or any one. But at the end of the day, pretentious behavior won't contend you. Aspire to be the best. You may set someone to be your ideal, but make that person your means, and not ends in itself. Blind following will only make you just another follower, rather than being a leader. If great people would have thought of being someone else they admire, they themselves wouldn't have been able to establish their own identity. Every day, let your ambition be to be better than what you were yesterday.
No one remembers who some individual was in a crowd, unless he's particular. If you want to carve out your name in the world, then carve out what's uncommon in you and others; make a niche out of it. Excel in being different
, because performing similar tasks or having similar approach to finding solutions won't get your course of action acknowledged, if there's already someone who acts so.
People are highly competitive to do something new these days. Ensure that you do it first. It may be anything, for instance, preparing for exams, gathering data for reports, composing novel music, or putting forth your ideas. Be a pioneer. Go forward and talk to new people; make new friends
and weave your own network. Don't wait for someone to give you opportunity; seize in anything that elevates your self.
Whatever happens, life is awesome. Don't whine over stupid things. And if you lose hope completely, then remember that there are millions who can't manage two square meals daily and there are infinite who are already dead since the history of universal time; but you're still here and that too alive. Go, have a look in the mirror and smile. Sincerely, you're beautiful.
