Today I would like to share a true and inspiring story which will probably change the way you think and motivate you to move forward in your life. If you ever think that you have lost everything in your life, if you think that you do not have any energy left to fight the situations thrown by life on you, then read about Karoly Takacs. Karoly Takacs was a soldier in Hungarian army. He got a best shooting hand in his country. He was the national champion in shooting and probably there was no one in his time who could had beaten him. He was very confident that he would win the gold medal in coming Olympics in 1940. But there was something else destiny has planned for him.

Yesterday I was sitting late in my office waiting for some response from my client, It was around 11:30 PM and I saw a boy working in office sweeping the floors. I called him and offered chair to sit down. He gently accepted the offer. He was a smart and good looking person. I was curious to know about him, his life style, the problems and other things going on in his life. Initially I was doing so just for passing the time. But suddenly he said something and I could not believe what he said. He said that he never went to school, not a single day he has spent in school. I could not believe this, a young man of just 23 years old have never went to school!!! Is it still happening in India? Oh, My God!! is it true?
I strongly believe that there is only one life which we all get to live. There is nothing after this life. Whatever property you possess or whatever you will earn, that you can avail in this life only. There is no meaning of earning which you cannot spend in this life. Your unused earning is wasted thing for you. We always start our day like we have unlimited days left in our life. But who knows whichever is our last day. We always got twenty-four hours in our day but there are two days in our life which do not have complete twenty-four hours. These are our very first day and very last day of our life.
Recently I have read a very thoughtful quote from the book ‘The Way of the Superior man’. This quote forced me to stop and ponder on it. Here is the quote:
Most men make the error of thinking that one day it will be done. They think, “If I can work enough, then one day I could rest.” Or, “One day my woman will understand something and then she will stop complaining.” Or, “I’m only doing this now so that one day I can do what I really want with my life.” The masculine error is to think that eventually things will be different in some fundamental way. They won’t. It never ends. As long as life continues, the creative challenge is to tussle, play, and make love with the present moment while giving your unique gift.
The universal truth of this world is that every mankind has his dreams. Some people has stronger dreams, some has weaker. Few people realize that they have dreams and few don’t. Actually our dreams represent the energy level inside us. Energy is the source of every happening. The person with greater energy level has stronger dreams and the person with lesser energy level has weaker dreams. We can say that energy inside us is directly proportional to the strength of our dreams. Every mankind has some energy; hence every mankind has dreams. That’s why I called it as universal truth “Every mankind has dreams “. Isn’t it sounds good to you?
