People say, “Get good marks, you will get a good job.”
(Do you really think that working under someone else will lead you a great life?)
People say, “You should not drive too fast.”
(If you obey this, then how are you going to push the limit of your vehicle?)
People say, “Work hard today so that you will live an easy life tomorrow.”
(Hahaha. This is the funniest thing. Bullshit!! There is nothing like an easy life. It doesn’t exist.)
People say, “Learn what you have got in your course.”
(Now imagine Steve Jobs had done that.)
People say, “You must listen to your elders for any crucial decision.”
(What if they haven’t gone where you want to go? In this case, their advice is meaningless.)
People say, “You must work under someone before doing anything by yourself.”
(What if you are going to die tomorrow? What will you say to yourself when you are on deathbed?)
People say, “This planet owes us something.”
(It does not only sound bad but also smells bad. This planet was here first. Take care of it.)
Now, I say, “Who is setting up all these rules for your life? Who are these people telling you what you can and can’t do? And the most important is, why are you listening to them?”
These rules are useless. You got to break some rules in your life which are meant to be broken because you don’t want a life like others. If you want a great life, you must do something which you are great at. Break those rules which are hindering you from doing something great.
Will people criticize?
Will they call you nuts?
Will they like you?
It’s better to walk alone, than with a crowd going in the wrong direction.
I know, you will prove yourself in the end.
