The engine or the driver?

Woah! I am on fire lately because I am reading books again regularly. It’s maybe because I have switched jobs and I am getting some more ‘me-time’ than usual or because I have fallen again in love with books and I am spending quality time with them.

I am observing things and all this observation is leading to many findings. I am compelled to think whether I am a driver or just an engine? Am I a leader or just a soldier and a warrior? Because the engine faces the accident first. Because the soldier dies first.

What made me think this? Maybe because I am not doing things differently. I am not thinking out of the box. I am rooted. I am scared of change. I have started loving my comfort zone.

To become a driver, a leader, I have to leave all this and start doing things better, forget my comfort zone, and start thinking out of the box. I am ready to think that I need change but am I ready to embrace that change? Am I ready to expand my comfort zone? What do you think?

I know that I don’t have any other option and that’s the best thing for me. I have to do it all. I have to suffer and I have to toil hard and I have to get things done. I have to smile, smile from my heart and be satisfied with my efforts.

Being content will make me a leader maybe because I will be in total control of myself and the outside factors cannot affect me. For that, I have to be satisfied and also find inspiration from others and my surrounding.

Below is my video about how I find inspiration from people.


I am trying my best to be a leader but for that, I have to keep on learning and expressing my knowledge via actions.

P.S.: I have been just a name in the Blogging world lately and I am trying to turn the tide and be back with more frequently. I finished ‘Slumdog Millionaire’ book and now I am reading ‘The Girl on the Train’. Till that, keep smiling and enjoy Capsizeย of Frenship and Emily Warren โค Promise to see y’all soon ๐Ÿ˜›

    • Yeah, inspiration is a two-way street. Sorry for the late reply ๐Ÿ˜› I am trying to be back in WP actively. Comfort zones are scary and I am also trying to avoid it or keep it at a safe distance ๐Ÿ˜‚
