When I walk through the roads towards my destiny, I met these people. By the look of them, considering the basics about them, they were the people who just live for the sake of it. Some were beggars. Some were millioners. Most were in between those two. But one thing was similar to all of them. After several years when I met them, they have not developed even a bit from what they were.
They were struggling to live wondering how others could be rich, happy, educated and this and that and what not. They did not think too much or rather they did not have too many expectations. Or they had too many expectations but had no vision or did not know the path. There was something about them that holds their luck. There was something on their way to block their journey. They did not know what it was. As usual like all the people of that category, they also blame the government, capital markets, black magic of the neighbors and social system etc for their fate.
I had this quotation of ‘Lao Tzu’ somewhere on my desk.
"Go to the people.
Live with them.
Learn from them.
Start with what they know.
Build with what they have."
But with the best leaders, when the work is done, the task accomplished, the people will say "We have done this ourselves".”
When I live so much with them and learn about them, I realized I’m in love with them. I managed to see above their fate. I saw how I can start with what they know and build with what they have. I realize how I can contribute to uplift them. People are not bad. Its just they need to be directed. Everyone has something in them. Every life can be uplift to next level. Everyone can be happy. This is my effort in uplifting lives of them in order to make them and keep them happy throughout. I will do what I can do. I will do what I should do. I feel I’m the chosen one. I want people to say that they made it by themselves !!!
