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 Capsize of Frenship and Emily Warren ❤ Promise to see y’all soon 😛

 

I am so happy

Presently I am reading The Metamorphosis by Franz Kafka. It’s a great book and I am liking it till now. Just some 40 add pages are remaining (total pages are 100) 😀

I took the bus from office to home in the evening today. I took out the book from my bag to read. I saw the bus conductor approaching, I kept the book aside, took out my wallet. What happened next was astonishing for me.

The conductor came to me and instead of taking money from me, took the book and started reading. I was stunned. You ask why? Because in India, there are very less literate people who would opt for such a profession and he was totally engrossed in the book.

He went to collect money from other passengers and again came and sat beside me reading the book. I was so happy seeing him reading the book.

I wish he could read more and have a good life just as he’s imagined for himself. He is B.A. pass (Bachelor of Arts) and due to some family issues he chose this. I gave him the book and we shook hands and at the end of my trip, we both were happy souls ❤

P.S.: Ed Sheeran’s Shape of you is my new favorite 😀 I secretly took a pic of the guy reading. Hope this is good.16144932_1184966048223110_1196503601_o
