The Flux of Ideas

Four years ago I published my first blog post on this very day titled, “ 3 Apples changed the world, Why can’t you?” I talked about being crazy, I talked about following your passion. I talked about being you, being visible to the world. I quoted lines from Apple’s Think Different Commercial,

People who are crazy enough to think they can change the world are the ones who do it.

I was a normal school going child back then who loved reading quotes, thoughts and storytelling.

Fast forward 4 four years, I am in the second year of my college and I had my Entrepreneurship Development examination today. One of the question in my examination paper was to write the success story of either Ratan Tata or Steve Jobs. I chose the latter. Subconsciously, I started my answer from the same lines I wrote four years ago on my very first blog post,

People who are crazy enough to think they can change the world are the ones who do it.

Four years later you can still find me quoting the same lines.

You know why?

Because:

Because no matter what the time frame is ideas always stick around. They are bulletproof and they won’t die. Yesterday’s ideas can become change agents of today, today’s ideas can burgeon into something great tomorrow. That’s why they say,

So, let me take this moment and discussion to share with you all an idea I stumbled upon recently. The idea is to stop seeking validation for anything that you want to do in your life & do it anyway (except drugs & cigarettes kidos I don’t endorse that).  I have met so many amazing people in my life who want to do so many stupendous things.

But they never do it.

Laziness creeps all over them, the fear of being judged engulfs them. And they miss on the possibility of being a go-getter. To be high on the need for achievement you don’t have to be an entrepreneur but be true to oneself. And the truth is you can become whoever you want to be and it all starts here by letting go of what people think of you and your ideas and pursuing them whatsoever.

And whenever you are having second thoughts about doing anything in life remember the saying of Tyler Durden from the movie Fight Club,

We buy things we don’t need, with the money we don’t have, to impress the people we don’t like.

Clearly, seeking validation isn’t the way out for anyone.

Think about that.
