Have you ever engrossed in your own troubles?
Ever since I turned 30, The whole world seems to worry about my marriage. They desperately want to sell off my single bed and to buy double bed for me.
But, after being rejected by 10th times, I was again facing my marriage interview.
My prospective Father-in-law asked during the interview: “How old are you?”
I replied: “30.”
“But you look as if..father of two kids.”
I controlled my anger and said: “Thank you for recognising my potentials.”
And I was rejected again, for being BALD bole to Ujda Chaman. (To increase the pain of insult thanks the director of movie Ujda Chaman Mr. Abhishek Pathak)
I whispered: “God,I want to grow my hair.”
My friend Pinku Suggested: “Dude!!Not to worry!! There is a way. Why don’t you try Head and Shoulder?”
After using it for two months, I realised that: “My head and shoulder, both looked the same”
I consoled myself: Look at famous personalities like Shakespeare, Yogi and Johny Sins Madhuranjan, don’t be afraid of you future father-in-law.
I was not even afraid of my boss. My boss and I got along great. I used to laugh at all his jokes, and he used to laugh at all my SUGGESTIONS.
We both were in the Conference Room for performance review.
He asked: “So, how is the work going on??”
“Pretty good! In fact, I have started working on something that has never been tried before.”
Wow, that’s interesting, but why didn’t you do that before the appraisal?
“Sir , I ..”
“Every time I pass by your cubicle, I see you are busy in some nonsense crazy stuff. “And I got this feedback too—“You keep ogling at girls, who are working in other projects.”
Without any fear I said:“Then why don’t you get beautiful girls in my project?”
Next day, the situation changed. I was thrown out of the project. Even I realised coding was not my cup of tea.
For an advice, I reached out to my uncle. I said: “Uncle!! I hate coding!!, Is there any way”
He said : “Son , Not to worry , why don’t you try comedy?
I said: “Wow!!Thank you for recognising my potentials but what if I ….
“Son!!Not to worry !!! There is a way and way is on the way.”
I learned “to have no care at all ” – an attitude of whatever will be, will be.
Everything happens for a reason.
I had an aunt. She was an old lady ,short ,fat and slightly bent, desperately poor, Her life was filled with poverty, but possessing immense energy to survive.
At cooking time, her daughter says says “Mom, what shall I cook? We have neither dal nor vegetables.“
Aunty would reply. “Not to worry, there is a way…” and March out of the house.
Strolling around the neighbourhood she’d shout to the owner, usually a woman of her own age,”Hey Kaushalya, your brinjal look nice. How about a couple for me?“
Then, without even waiting for a reply, she’d pluck a few.
Returning home, she’d say to the daughter: “Cook these, just be sure to add extra water.”
I would often visit her, she’d say to me, “Not to worry, here, sit down and have something to eat.”
That favourite phrase of hers became my strength. “Not to worry! there is a way…”
I did not even worry after leaving my job. I started calling myself: “Entrepreneur.”
But the kind of revenue I was generating, people started calling me as: “Social Entrepreneur.”
In this situation, I learnt a new skill. Borrow money. Without any fear, I could ask anyone for a loan.
Several times I thought, Should I go back to my old IT job?
But as you know said by Darren La Croix “The best part of being a speaker is that, whenever tragedy happens we say: “Yeah!! I got a speech!!!”
I started delivering my tragic speeches in different clubs. I was totally engrossed in my own troubles and that’s how the speaker in me took the shape.
After one year down the line, I so called became an international speaker.
My frequency of speeches, increased exponentially. I started getting calls.
“Sir, I would like to invite you to our club.”
“Can you arrange for a cab?”
“Sir, you can come by Delhi metro.”
I was shaken inside. A prospective world champion and going by metro??
Then once again
Last month my dad called me and said: “Son, Come home!! We are going to fix your hair, I mean marriage.”. Once again in front of my another Prospective father in law.
This Father-in-law said: “, how old are you?”
I said: “32”
“But you look like….”
This time, I was not worried about being rejected because there is a way and way is on the way.
Dear friends, If you have been rejected by someone, there is a way ,but what if when you have rejected yourself?
For everything there is a reason and season. Don’t worry !! Respect the gestation period.
Trouble will be vanish like a bubble if you don’t worry! there is a way and way is ……
