A prominent writer, a playwright, a composer, a reformer and a painter, many talents in one man, Rabindranath Tagore, is an author of Indian and Bangladesh National anthems. He received the Nobel prize for his marvellous work in Bengali literature. Yet this highly successful man has been through the darkest phases of life. He lost all his family members in 5 years. The heartbroken Rabindranath Tagore suffered severe depression and psychological trauma for many years after the demise of his family. The quotes written from the lessons he learnt and the experiences he faced are a great motivation to others:
“You can’t cross the sea merely by standing and staring at the water”
Who doesn’t want a good life? There is always a goal that each one of us has dreamt of achieving. As said, if you can’t dream big things, you can never achieve them. Dreaming is the first step that drives you to achieve your goal. But only thinking of your goal becomes a wish and is never fulfilled. You have to take action to achieve it. There are many productive hacks, given by experts that reduce time and effort if followed sincerely. The SMART approach is the best-known productivity hack to define your goals and improve productivity. Set realistic goals, take action towards them, compare the performance to the desired results and improvise your plan based on feedback.
“I slept and dreamt that life was joy, I awoke and saw that life was service, I acted and behold that service was joy”
We live on one planet cooperating with one another. The actions of one will affect the other. Therefore, you should be attentive in making decisions so that you don’t harm others but get benefitted from your actions. Learn to be like water. Mend well with others but find your way to flow. Helping each other, holding hands, serving the weak are the true signs of a prosperous society. Once you do a service, you get addicted to it. That’s the amount of satisfaction you get by offering a service to others. It improves your character and also helps others live peacefully.
“Faith is the bird that feels the light when the dawn is still dark”
There comes a day in everyone’s life when we feel lost and life seems to end there. As said only after the darkest times, one can see success. If you could make one step ahead in the darkest times of failure, you taste success. But what does it take to make that one step? Courage and Faith in yourself. Courage to move forward and a leap of faith that you can do it. Without hope, we don’t feel alive. Don’t give up. Every time you fall and fail, rise from the ashes like a phoenix. Remember that living through the worst situations toughens you and prepares you for a better tomorrow. Life is never a bed of roses. There are horns to be crossed to reach the rose.
“If you cry because the sun has gone out of your life, your tears will prevent you from seeing the stars”
Mourning over the spilt beans will never fetch you anything. In the end, when we look back, every moment good and bad is worth experiencing. They are responsible for what you are now. Always have a bigger perspective and think about where you want to be in the long term. Keep shorter goals and take one step at a time to achieve the bigger one. However small the progress may be, keep moving. The moment you give up trying, you fail. Always evaluate the deviation of your performance with the desired one and try to minimise it.
“Let us not pray to be sheltered from dangers but to be fearless when facing them”
From the moment we leave our mother’s womb, we have to fight every single second for survival. People after securing a job feel safe and think that life is settled. Getting a job should not be your goal. Always keep learning and trying new things. That’s the only way to feel alive. Take new challenges, do what scares you, try adventures, that’s the only way you can know and appreciate the meaning of life. A man is a lifelong learner. The moment we stop learning, we are considered dead. Rise above result-oriented life and focus on the journey. This mindset can revolutionise the world.
