Look, if you had one shot, or one opportunity To seize everything you ever wanted-One moment Would you capture it or just let it slip?
You better lose yourself in the music, the moment You own it, you better never let it go You only get one shot, do not miss your chance to blow This opportunity comes once in a lifetime yo,
You can do anything you set your mind to, man
-- from "Lose yourself " by Eminem
A person waits all his life for that elusive "one shot"
to prove himself to the world ...or even better...
to prove himself to himself !! So does he let go
when the opportunity crosses his path ??
There are no technical-s**t-routines or
standard procedures for success (though they
might serve as pre-requisites) !! Success comes
when you “lose yourself” to the purpose of achie-
ving what your truly believe in!!
Its about setting your mind to what your heart
ACADS : Many people who are really qualified for
discussing this already did it. Check out IIIT Blogroll
to search for them .
OTHERS LIKE SPORTS,LOVE,etc., Put your mind to
give the scenario your best shot … at winning the
game. Its all about unleashing your inner heart-felt instincts!!
For instance, a very skinny fellow wants to bulk
up (or) someone wants to lose weight !! (Halt!
Being thin or a little overweight doesn’t really
matter as long as YOU are comfortable with your
overall persona! ) Okay! So if that’s what you truly want in that heart of yours then tune your mind to
get it! In places like IIIT, it becomes really difficult
to be regular to the gym or implementing other
means to reach the afore-mentioned goals ! But
look at the bright side ,if you achieve it against
all odds , you become tougher and internally stro-
nger ! Moreover, you will learn time-management
as well ;)
Another e.g., is this thing called LOVE. If you are
really serious about a person and your feelings
are honest …. barriers like caste,creed,religion,
etc., matter a pea-sized-damned-faecet !! Just
follow your heart (of course use the ideas in
your brain to complement your heart’s true
craving ) and make sure things end well !
(That doesn’t mean you become a stalker
though.Irrespective of whether she/he reci-
procates, be the good person ..if it works out
..gr8! If it doen’t initially , who knows?U might
well be the next “Arya “) .But the moment you
f***ing give up ‘coz of such barriers…. Forget
it pal! You just lost your “one shot”!!
So quoting from the feature film “Bhadra”
“Just do it..just do it
Don’t bother go and try
Jo kuch karma hain ..”
Then we have the dude called failure.In case you met him
already, you are now a “wounded tiger” and as the
appellation to an old saying goes , “..A wounded tiger
is less probable of getting wounded (=>; losing )
again “.So now you have the “eye of the tiger” !
Just zero in on your goal ! Something on the lines
of “becoming stronger after every battle (whether
you win or lose) “ .
Hence , if there is something you waited an eternity for,
a feeling that is infinitely intense , something you
whole-heartedly want to achieve …….. small-scale or
large-scale, academic or non-academic, simple or
sophisticated, possible or (seemingly)impossible …..
just put your heart and mind to it ol’ chum …
NEVER GIVE IT UP !!
PS: One of those rare times when I wrote something
serious! Guess I just joined Halley’s club though I am
not an idealist like either Halley or PKV.
PS1: Most rap is s**t crap. But “Lose yourself” begs
to differ .
PS2 : Spawn tagged me long long ago ..will fulfill the
requirements tomorrow ..this time for sure
