Born Different to Think and Act Differently

Lifestyle

We are all born different. As we grow in life, we grow as different individuals with different thinking and taste. We act and react differently in different situations. We are in ourselves an example of unity in diversity.

Friedrich Nietzsche puts it very nicely in these words, "At bottom every man knows well enough that he is a unique being, only once on this earth; and by no extraordinary chance will such a marvelously picturesque piece of diversity in unity as he is, ever be put together a second time."

We know and appreciate that each day is different from the other and that makes that day a new day with different prospects and possibilities for different persons. So, Paulo Coelho is right in saying, "You can become blind by seeing each day as a similar one. Each day is a different one; each day brings a miracle of its own. It's just a matter of paying attention to this miracle."

It being so, may I request you to stand before the mirror to see and ask yourself how and in what manner you are different from your closest friends? You would surely get answers to many of your questions. All the great persons, from Gautam Buddha to Socrates, Einstein to Raman, Mahatma Gandhi to Mother Teresa, Nelson Mandela to Barak Obama, Steve Jobs to Azim Premji, to name a few, who lived with us and who are still with us, have achieved those seemingly impossible feats by attempting their tasks differently.

Why to go far away, you just see around your own domain and you would find that the winner among you has been living his life differently. Please remember, you are a human being and not a machine. You are having your own laboratory inside you to experiment, create, innovate, improvise and in the process discover your true potential and enjoy life.

Before signing off tonight, let me share with you these thought provoking lines written by an unknown author: "We do not choose to be born. We do not choose our parents. We do not choose our historical epoch, the country of our birth, or the immediate circumstances of our upbringing. We do not, most of us, choose to die; nor do we choose the time and conditions of our death. But within this realm of choicelessness, we do choose how we live".
