In what ways do you stand out?
It is a considered fact that we are what we think ourselves to be. If we have low opinion of ourselves, we are not able to make a mark in the society we are living. Low self esteem leads to downfall of an individual in all the field of his / her activity. A person who has reached to a certain level in a particular discipline and etched out a niche by dint of hard work and perseverance will prove highly productive to the society at large.
Although I want to do my duty for the people I am near or with whom I have interaction, yet, I do not try to make them realize that I have / will be of any value to them. I do that service without any fanfare. I am from a village background, and from a middle class background. I am aware of the need of our society and try fulfilling the same in my own way. I am a Homeopath – this I have not followed as a profession but as a social service cause. My payment is earned immensely when my patient is relieved of the ailment. I get a sort of mental satisfaction which otherwise I do not get even if I am offered the kingdom of heaven.
The strongest thing which I can bank on are sincerity, integrity, loyalty, excellence in my job in hand, go-getter attitude and above all ready to help attitude at all time without any discrimination. (To be honest with my readers, all these qualities have been penned down by my superiors and peer group with whom I have worked / am working presently). In all these, and others, if and when am able to help, it gives me immense satisfaction.
Why being busy is a blessing in disguise?
It is well said that if you want to remain away from bad deeds remain busy. Remaining pre-occupied means our attention remains riveted on the subject in hand and you do not indulge in misdeeds and earn a bad name for himself and for the ones you hold dear. It has also been experienced that a person’s ability / capability is gauzed by the productive results / outcome which he / she shows on ground. It is not acquired when a person sits idle. Also an idle mind is a devil’s workshop. An idle person is prone to participate in anti-social activities which may spoil his /her name and fame.
It has been seen practically that we can achieve much output while we remain occupied in some productive venture; may it be reading, writing or any other activity. All the maladies in our daily life like depression, despondency etc are the result of our inactivity. While we are inactive, we are putting pressure on our heart for redemption. Depression results in less productivity, less material possession, less knowledge, etc. In this sort of a scenario, we become dependent on others for pulling us up from the quagmire of our own making.
Conclusively, it could better be said that those who remain pre-occupied with one pursuit or the other remain at their productive best through out their life and in this endeavor they make a mark not only for themselves but for others also. Life for them is not a burden but a way of life. Both in happiness and in sadness they maintain their equanimity and take everything as a challenge.
