- We do not want Struggle in our lives and certainly not for our children.
Nowadays the biopic is trending. Bored with fictional stories, the public wants to see 'Slice of Life'. There must be something special in that man or woman. And then the film maker puts a little salt and pepper in that story and presents it to the audience. For two-and-a-half hours, we get engrossed in it and also start dreaming. Then go home and the effect is gone.
He is imprisoned back in the realm that was seen, heard, lived since childhood. Because there is a safety and comfort in it. No matter how much that man or woman has struggled in the picture, in our life we do not want to struggle. And certainly not for their children. Every morning when sleep opens, the mind feels five minutes more. It is the weekiness of the body that it wants rest. He whose mind is powerful gives command to the body: wake up. Start the activity If you keep doing this continuously then the habit of getting up on time is set. Jagjit Singh once studied in DAV Jalandhar. It is said that every year there used to be a lot of quarrels in their hostels that we should not allot rooms around this man. Because at five o'clock in the morning, his Riaz started and this human alarm clock disturbed the sleep of others.
Just think, what a golden opportunity it was for those relaxed students. If he too got up and paid little attention to studies, then where would he reach from where. But forced by habit. Then how to change these habits? Every year on January 1, we make a lot of resolutions. Everyone forgets by January 5. I recommend taking a step. Take a small issue and make a small improvement in it. Like many people say that I do not get time to read a book. Sir, just do these things every night before going to sleep at night. Put the phone to sleep in another room. Place a book on your bedside table, read five to seven pages daily.
The book will be completed in a month. What will be the benefit of this small habit? When we watch a serial of Netflix, we are in passive mode. We do not have to work hard. But to dissolve in the world of books one has to be mindful. We have to use our imaginations. And today we are in dire need of the same thing. To dream on the screen of your mind. Secondly, you get all kinds of news and videos in WhatsApp and it also feels good. But for the mind, it is junk food. Sometimes you will eat burgers and chips, no problem. But if you eat only useless food except pulse-rice, vegetable-bread, what will happen to the body?
The result is clearly visible. The mind also needs nutrition. It is not that the internet is a bad thing, but use it wisely. Watch the comedy on YouTube as well as an 18-minute TED talk. There are latest developments in the field of education or business, search Google on them. This is a gold mine, don't just float in the soil. Do you know, Steve Jobs gave the iPad to the world but not in the hands of his children? Similarly, mobile phones are banned on the dining table in Bill Gates' house and a limit was also imposed on screentime. Because they know very well that social media is an illusion. What got stuck in it, cannot get out. We login every day to see how many likes my post has received. If there are more likes then our brain releases dopamine. It is called 'feel good' chemical. Cigarette smoking or gambling also have the same effect. So don't gamble with your future. Get on high with the help of good habits. Not tomorrow, today. (These are the author's own views)
