There are several aims and objectives that keep me motivated throughout the day; for example, to spend quality time with my kids and to excel in my profession. However, there are three core or major or basic aims in my life. These are not very special or out-of-the-box aims. These are very common aims. However, these aims give me power to do extremely well in all areas of my life such as professional, personal, financial and, of course, spiritual.
These aims are as follows:
- To add value in the lives of those who look for substantial thoughts, which help them excel in their lives
- To make my parents feel proud of me
- To set good example in front of young generation in my family and, of course, in society
For more than ten years now, these aims have navigated my life. As I mentioned in one of my previous bloposts [Mahatma Gandhi, as I Appreciate the Man] about my preparation for the prestigious civil services examination, I thought that I would achieve all these aims in one shot, i.e. I would contribute in social welfare activities or make some major policy that would have positive impact on common man’s life, I would make my parents feel proud of me and I would set extremely good example in front of my younger brother and sister [as in my generation, I am the eldest son of my family].
However, since now I have chosen to become an editor, I arrange, develop and edit the content and books that add immense value to the readers’ lives. Since I have written a couple of books, I believe I have certainly made my parents feel proud of me. And with all these achievements, I think I have set a certain example in front of the younger generation in my family, and at least those who know me personally.
But I strongly believe that all this is not at all enough. In my life, there is enough space that needs to be filled. I need to add more value to the lives of those who are looking for it, I need to make my parents feel more proud of me than what they are today and I need to set more higher examples in front of young members of my family. Therefore, I have started this blog. I strongly believe that through writing, I can make more/extra contribution, which I cannot make in any other way. Therefore, this blog is one of the several ways to achieve the three main aims of my life that keep me motivated.
