Few days back I was at the party with my wife. Including my uncle’s family, we were talking about classical Indian music because my wife has learned and practice vocal Classical Indian music.
We were talking about an android application that is on my phone that is for playing a piano with your touchscreen. My uncle requested my wife to play that piano and so she did.
Making a little mistake at one point, my wife mentioned to my uncle, “Although I have learned music, Vighnesh can play this piano better than me with his sixth sense.”
That made my uncle say, “That does not matter. Because probably I can introduce you to my friend who plays better than Vighnesh. There is no need to compare yourself with him. We just want to hear how you play, that’s all. There always will be someone better than the other.”
Now, that’s the line we are sticking at.
So much weight that truth holds. In chapter 2 – never compare of “Volume 1 of Get inspired Get thinking”, my e-book I mentioned a similar thing. There is no point comparing and having yourself feel bad/down.
Now, just to add another lesson to it, something that my uncle said, there always will be someone better than the other. So, do not ever feel bad for not being as good as others. Why do we feel that we are not as good as others? Why do we not concentrate on the fact that we may be better than someone else at doing something.
Everyone is not the same. Everyone is not the strongest. Everyone is not the weakest one either. Never underestimate the power of anyone, including your own self.
Some of my friends reading my blogs ask me how I get the ideas to write. I just try keeping my eyes and ears open. Things happen right in front of you. Every day, every new situation is filled with a lesson, so be a good observer and be a good learner.
“In order to inspire others, you have to be inspired first.” – Robin Sharma
By being a good observer and a good listener you will be inspired and you will be able to inspire all around you. so Stay Inspired, Stay Thinking.
A romantic/suspense fiction coming your way. If all goes well it will be there right when 2013 Valentine’s day is around the corner.
