Am-In?

They say one’s life is a direct consequence of the choices one makes.

L=f (choices) is what one would say as a mathematician.

More often than not one answers in the affirmative to the title of this post.

Be it joining a cool group as a teenager,

Be it replicating the Virat Kohli’s beard look or the Ronaldo’s hair cut,

Be it starting to smoke or drink with friends,

or

Be it buying products from the who’s who of brands be it Zara, Louis Vuitton etc.

Have you ever wondered what would life be if you were NOT IN?

You wouldn’t be too concerned about spending loads to match up to the fashion trends,

You wouldn’t get too affected by being an outlier from the smoking/drinking groups,

You wouldn’t be spending too much time and money trying to find where happiness lies,

Rather

Would start deriving happiness and satisfaction from the so called little things in life.

The only thing you need to figure out is whether you choose to be IN or NOT!

Success=====!

Let me see what this means:

Success=====Wealth?

Success=====A luxury car?

Success=====A house on the Marine Drive?

Success=====Traveling in business class?

Success=====Dining in a 7-star?

Success====Owning a 5000 Euro Louis Vuitton bag?

Success====Fame?

Well, going by what the world perceives, going by what the society tells us, going by what we have been socialized into believing, going by what we are praised or followed for, the above, in all possibilities seems to be true.

People who are totally conditioned to the point of believing each and every word of the same, would go all out in arguing what else it could mean, for money can buy them loads of stuff, fame can get the who’s who among others bow their heads in respect satisfying the egos which most would refer to as the inner self.

Now let us consider an alternative to the above narrative:

Success====Starts with peace of mind?

Success====Well being?

Success====Playfulness?

Success====being joyful in the moment?

Success====living life to the fullest?

Success====experiencing the wonderful nature?

Success====being pleasant within=good health?

Wonder, whether the alternative view leads to the former one or vice-versa?

Wonder, whether the ability to be joyful within, leads to enjoying the fruits of one’s hard work and wealth that comes along with the same?

Wonder, whether good health enables us to enjoy time that we spend with our near and dear ones along with the materialistic possessions that we tend to identify ourselves so strongly with?

Wonder, whether we need to redefine the way we all perceive success?

Wonder, whether the world that is, was not meant to be conquered but to be experienced?

Food for thought, haan!
