Ahem Ahem, I may sound a critique to those who are working or earning, but this topic I am gonna write about has a different perspective all-together. All our lives we are being asked to follow what is traditional and what will help us achieve success (“What people define in terms of money”). But if we focus on our passion and interest instead, we would definitely be in a better position to achieve satisfaction and success in our lives.
There’s a common belief that, after studying and doing higher studies, one can get better money which would then lead to a better life and ultimately “satisfaction”. But in this process, I think we forget the value of Knowledge that we get after completing our Education. Education and its sole purpose is not only to confer the individuals with monetary benefits, but induct or induce them to become a contributor to the organization or to the society; which they belong to. Knowledge has a great importance in Human Life; it can get you many more things that money can’t buy in life. One of such things would be Respect; which means a lot to everyone.
Everyone is so dumbfounded by the idea of getting the degree for the namesake that they forget to even look at their interests and passion in life which they would do profoundly and immaculately. During college/student-life phase, everyone takes efforts in order to earn as quickly as possible. And once they start working they immediately face the issues with the job profiles, job satisfaction, work-life balance and the like. This reminds me of a Quote which says ” It’s better to try and fail, but never fail and try “.
Its both simple and complicated at the same time. Making money is the ultimate aim of anyone’s life which derives prosperity, security and a future in life. But if we take efforts in acquiring knowledge and not seek financial gain, money will ultimately follow. Reminds me of a great learning from the Bollywood Flick 3 IDIOTS which says that “Success is obvious, if one strives for excellence”. This excellence can only be achieved only through Knowledge, nothing else, not even money can surrogate it!!!
