Do you hate Mondays? Are you waiting for the holidays? Are you sitting in your office daydreaming a life you feel you can never have?
Snap out of it! This is the only life you have. Build something for yourself and your kids. People will call you crazy. embrace it. Hell, I’m nuts. People will call you stubborn. If the weak-resolved see commitment, dedication and a strong will as stubbornness then hell yeah! They can call us unicorns for all we care.
Be rebellious. Do what others are too afraid to do. Actually do it because you’re too scared to do it! When you propose a plan and everyone is agreeing with it, don’t follow that plan! Throw out what everyone likes. Instead do exactly that which no one wants you to do! Trust me you’re going to ace it.
No one has it easy. I certainly didn’t when I chose acting over business. All hell broke lose. People cried and wailed. But I went ahead with it and paid them bills. My dad didn’t either when he left his prestigious and respected zamidari and came to Lahore with his own dreams and vision. Look at what that got him? His own airline. Rebellion runs in our blood. Dulla Bhatti ki Aulad hein na. Kuch na kuch tu garbar karein ge.
But rebellion runs in all of us. We aren’t meant to be a slave to the dominant discourse. We’re not meant to follow a system or way of being that leaves us without a sense of identity. We are meant to rise. Both independently and together. So do what your heart desires, and do it well. You’re not responsible for other people. Only for yourself. Make yourself happy. If the complainer next to you is fussing over what you are doing instead of focusing on what he is doing, trust me he’s got Way bigger problems to deal with. Like getting his own life together! It’s about time he works on that sinking ship!
