what happened to your burning desire?

What’s a burning desire? It is the motivation that makes you work, suffer, dance, cry, shout, stand up for what you want and believe that you can achieve your dreams. It’s when someone engages in an activity so much that it becomes what always thinks about,talks about and dreams about. There’s quotation of Martin Luther, “If you have not discovered anything to die for then you are not fit enough to live.” This world needs more people with burning desires. People whose lives would be judged by their actions. Surprisingly, whether you knew it or not, from very young days of your childhood you had experienced these burning desires. When we kids, we wanted to be superheroes, pilots, engineers, poets, writers, princesses, policemen, painters, we wanted to change the world, stand up and be counted, to get attention, climb trees, cross the road, buy candy and eat a lot of ice creams. You know that if children would not get what they want such as the chocolates, ice creams. They would cry! but why ?  because they would do anything to get what they want. I’m not saying to give the children what they want because as we all know that would make them stubborn. Unless if they deserve it of course! What I’m really pointing out is the fact that we ‘had’ those burning desires & asking you where did they go?

All you need is a burning desire.

Let me tell you where I think they got lost and remember things lost can be found. As we grew up, life taught us many things. Bad people got into our lives, disappointments, we got hurt, we fell down, we lost and then we followed the trend that goes by the principle, “we should not think too big, reach too high or love too much.” Some would call it life lessons because of that they stop chasing what they want. But I would take it as an opportunity to prove them wrong and make it a reason to fight for you want. You are meant to shine. You have a purpose, you just need to find it again. Like I said before, things lost can be found. Believe me once you find it, it will become the core of your existence. Thus, you will create your destiny. It get you up at the crack of dawn with fire in belly! Fire burning so bright, a burning desire you can call it.  A desire that will consume you! A desire that you will work hard for! A desire so beautiful and so meaningful. You will change the world and I firmly believe in that! You may want to help the people around. Help your colleagues reach their potential. Help the community. Bring innovative thinking in to the environment around you. All you need is get inside your mind and heart and find that beautiful, meaningful, lost burning desire!

I read about a man who is a lawyer, a leadership expert, motivational speaker, author, social worker. He wants people around the world to reach their potential. That is the whole population. He works day in and day out to try to make this a reality. Extremely crazy? Yes, but an extreme burning desire ? Definitely!

Is he special than you are? No,he just found his cause, his burning desire!

Stop calling names.

Whatever is wrong with you, that becomes your nickname. That can’t be good. If you are fat; “Fatty”. If you are studios; “Nerd”. You wear spectacles; “Four eyes”. “Fish face”. The list can go on because everyone is not perfect. There’s always at least one thing wrong with every individual. All this nicknames got the tendency to destroy every little of your self-esteem. The point is, you are not the only one who has a flaw so don’t get down on yourself. Just take it as you have found your flaws and they haven’t. You found that you are not perfect and you don’t have to.

Book Review: “Things not seen” by Andrew Clements

It’s been a long time since I ever read any fictional book. I’m glad that I came across the book “Things not seen.” I borrowed the book from the ‘American Center Library’. Reading the first few pages it seemed boring. I don’t know why that sense if mind came into me. I guess maybe that’s because of my lack of reading regularly. So, I don’t think its the fault of the book but myself. I got sick for a few days. When I was couldn’t do any thing but lay on my bed. But it was too good of a day to not do anything. So, I started reading this book at about 8 o’clock. I kept on reading and reading and reading. Every time a page I turned, my interest for the book increased. By the time I got to the 5th chapter I was totally hooked up in the story. I read and read; by the time I finished the book it was past 1 in the morning. In other words I was reading for more than 5 hours continuously. I don’t usually spend this much time on a book but that just shows how interesting the book is.

The story of a young boy who becomes invisible. He lives in an invisible life it was a bit hard but not as hard is he expected because he came to realized that even when he was not invisible he actually an invisible boy to society. No one cares on what happens to random people. Today, its worse. You don’t care for people who we know. That is just people are winded up. This book really points it out and shows how one boy relates it out that many of us today are experiencing. We need resist this type of nature of judging people by looks, gender and other things people insult each other with. We should develop a sense of rich sense of ATTITUDE OF GRATITUDE. Let me start by giving my appreciation to Andrew Clements for writing such a magnificent book. A situation that relates all humans in the modern world because of that I say that it is a successful piece of literature.
