March 5 2019 is a special day for me which I would like to share. Like every other morning I started for my work but never expected the morning travel is going to make a change in
me.When I just entered into the cab I realized I forgot my identity card without which I will not be allowed inside my office.I requested my cab driver to wait for few mins which he accepted with a smile. I normally don’t entertain conversation with strangers but that day our
conversation started with a thank you.
We had general talks on all companies,business everything and my prejudice about cab
drivers changed that day because he had very clear thoughts and good way of communicating the same.
It went on for few mins and suddenly he asked me a question
“Do you think in next few years, you will become the CEO of the company in which you are
I just smiled at him thinking he is trying to taunt me.But the next 15 mins conversation has put in me a new thought process.
I replied him with my smile that am not passionate about it.
“How you would know what you are passionate about when you don’t have a vision of it.”
This made me to think.Meanwhile he continued..
“Passion is something which we not only likes to do, but putting the best efforts for it everyday ”
I was questioning myself ,do I have a vision about my life? am I giving my best shot every day? Am I really happy and contented with what am doing ? When I was pondering on these thoughts, he continued..
“No one is ever going to be satisfied with what they get from others.Contentment is something which comes from inside of us by giving and not by getting.”
Our discussion went on and am briefing it 3 points here.
● Give 100% efforts for your vision.Define your 100 percent everyday.
● Give time for yourselves and people in need.When you are able to take care of yourself you will be able to take care of others as well.
● Never give up.when things go wrong just have an attitude of “ok..let me start doing again”
And finally when we departed ,the conversation ended with a “Thank you” from the depth of my heart.When I enquired about him, He just said he is an ordinary person who likes to speak to people and listen to their thoughts.
I realized that morning a right word given at the right time to a right person has the capacity to bring a change in one’s attitude to face situations.He encouraged me to
work on the vision of my life.
If you feel encouraged as well,i just want to say All the best !!!!!!!
