It Is All In Your Hands…

The popular saying goes… “Your life is in your hands.”

Believe in that? At least I do.

I was someone who believed in destiny. I always said to my folks… whatever is destined to happen, will happen. Why worry! But then now I realize… it ain’t like that. May be it never was.

Destiny…is something that transcends your powers…something that was never in our hands. But there is something that is always within your reach… something that you know you can deal with. And that something is… your will!

There have been times when I have complained of not being able to do something because of lack of understanding. But a close scrutiny had made me realize that it wasn’t the lack of understanding, but it was the lack of the WILL & WISH to understand that made me stay away from achieving it.

When I was forced to work in a field that I never wanted to work in, I always felt that I could not make out a word…I just wanted to run away from it. I always made excuses… but the day I sat and thought about it… WHY was it that I was just not able to understand anything, all I realized was that… I never wanted to learn, I was never interested in it, I never owned up my mistakes, I spent all this time whining. Then all I thought about was… how I can do better. How can I outperform myself at each stage?

Things started to settle down. I learnt each day.

It all basically depends on whether or not you want to do it. Life gives you ample opportunities to prove yourself. Justified to say, some of them go unnoticed by us. But, a lot many of them… we close our eyes to it.

It really does not matter if we succeed on grabbing that opportunity, but what surely matters is whether or not you tried. Test your skills, outperform yourself, set bigger and better goals in life. When you know you are better than anyone in this world, why not prove it to the world?

Your life is in your hands. Live it the way you want to.


Here is wishing you all the very best for every endeavour in your life. May God bless you with many such opportunities and with all the sense and sensibility so that you never let even one of those chances go unnoticed.

Loads of love and luck,

That was good at least it made me feel i dont have to buy robin sharma's books..

It also reminded of one of my friends who always used to say"Everything is in your hands dude" and he used to continue " If you want it that badly, you ll definitely make it ". Sometimes some people, sometimes some thoughts and sometimes some posts do inspire us... :) Same us here.

BTW what does NYX implies... wondering from long time :)

Good job :)

Another of your wonderful creations and with a very meaningful message to convey...its only with time that we realize that we cannot do everything we dream of, but then as you said we can definitely the best out of even the worst with our will-power and our capacity to hold on.
Thanks a lot for sharing such inspiring thoughts.
