Life Beyond Degree

Our parents set limited goals for us. This is the mind set. My son / daughter will complete his / her education, get a degree and finally job. This is the overall goal set by our parents for us. But Life is Beyond Degree.

Degree will help you to face problems in your life; degree will open the first door in your practical life. Your talent will open the second but it’s your attitude that will open rest of the doors. Now there is a difference between talent and attitude. Talent is your inborn ability while attitude is what you do with your talent. Let me elaborate with an example. Saeed Anwar (famous Pakistani cricketer) was born talented but as “Practice makes man perfect”. He practiced hard. 55 days of consistent practice. He practice for 2 hours, play a game, practice for 2 hours then play a game. Now this is consistency towards your goal. If you have a goal in life you have to make gradual increments on daily basics to achieve your goal.

Problems will be there but “Don’t bring your problems to the marketplace bring your skills”. One of my favorite lines from the movie Rocky Balboa in which Sylvester Stallone to his son “Life is a very mean and nasty place, it will throw you down to your knees and keep you there permanently if you let it but it’s not how hard you get hit; it’s how hard you can take and keep moving forward”.

Do good and people will follow you

As a Muslim it’s our duty to follow the teachings of Prophet Muhammad (P.B.U.H) and also influence others to follow them because it’s the only way to lead a successful life here and life after death.

This incident took place when I was coming back to my home from office. I was traveling in bus which was full of passengers so there was no place to sit. An aged man gets into the bus but since there was no place to sit he preferred standing right at the door. After few minutes a young man offered his place to the old man. Now this young man was standing; few stops later place was again empty and young man sat there. After two stops again an aged man entered the bus and again this young man offered his place to the old man.  Place was empty on the next spot and young man sat there.
