Hello hello, there dear readers. Happy Monday again you bold and lovely people. For today’s blog, I am going to be talking about being bold, which I am sure many of you already are, and I couldn’t have been more thankful for that because I really do love and admire people that are bold and courageous.
You know, an inspirational figure of mine, Swami Vivekananda, would always encourage his students to be bold, have courage and be strong, and he would also say that the weak have no place on earth and even in hell.
Oftentimes when I get to interact with people I see that a lot of them are scared of expressing their opinion with the fear of being judged. It seems like they are afraid to be different and bold, lest they may be mocked down upon.
But, honestly speaking, how many normal people have made history? Starting from Albert Einstein, Thomas Edison, Mahatma Gandhi, and Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose, none of them thought and acted like normal people. In today’s world, consider the examples of Bill Gates, Steve Jobs, Mark Zuckerberg and Elon Musk. They all had ditched the traditional way of education and believed they could do something far better and valuable for society, and they did.
They were bold in their decisions, and they did create history. You see, it gets proven again that it is the people who are a tad bit different from the usual societal framework are the ones who get to create history.
Now, talking about myself, I would like to share that if anything I have always tried to convince myself that bravery lies in thinking differently, and boldly. Of course, there have been times in my life when I have refrained from saying certain things for fear of being judged, but I have noticed that in the end, it was always me who ended up suffering the most.
I guess that it’s high time we move on, keep doing what we are supposed to do, and not think about what our relatives are going to think or how is society going to react, because frankly, their opinions aren’t coming to pay my bills, so it will be in my best interest to ignore them and continue on my path to discovery.
Also, I have seen that a lot of times being bold has to do with our internal mindset, meaning there are times when the mind weaves up certain stories, and acts negatively, in those situations we have to learn how to tame our minds and convince it instead that this life that we have now is a gift that has been given to us, and we must not waste it at any cost.
Sure, failures are inevitable in this route, but we have to make this effort consciously so that every time we fail we pick ourselves up, and just set off on this journey towards being ourselves, and being bold, and soon we will be able to write our own histories.
