Education is the third eye and it is the light which opens new way for you. When a student begins to go to school, he dreams of future that he will become doctor, engineer or Policeman etc. Do all dreams convert in reality? No, because, our school and college provides education but our target are not fixed by us. So, we walk all the time wrong way when we find our right way, we can not achieve target due to shortage of time. So, fix your target first and then do hard work to achieve them.
I remember one small story of Swet Martin which I have taught to my students in classroom for motivating them. One day an old saint was crying on his house’s first floor. He was saying, “What do you want, you will get it. One person went to him and said to him, “I want to become richest person of world by doing the business of diamonds. How can it possible? I want to tell one more thing that I have nothing to invest in business. ” That old person said, “Yes it can possible. Because what do you want, you will get it. For this you have to keep two things. He gives first diamond. He said, “This is the diamond, its name is time, do not waste your time. Value of time is equal to diamond. Take other from me. It is pearl. Its name is good work. Utilize your time to do good work. If you will use both things properly, you will surely become richest person of the world in your business. That person said to him, “you are befooling me.” I am well educated and I know commerce. There is no value of time and good works in market. If you go to any shop and sell your time and good works. You will get nothing.” After saying that, he returned home. Now again, he was wasting his time to see the dance and drinking. Due to the feature of our mind that it can remember all old things . So he remembers that yesterday one old person said that we should not waste the time. He threw the bottle of wine. Next day, he went to his uncle’s Jewellery shop. He said that he wanted to do work. His uncle appointed him as helper in his shop for cleaning the shop. He did his duty fully hard work. He did not waste the time by escaping from his duty. He understood that doing duty is good work for him. After year, he opened his own Jewellery shop in his village. After opened his shop in city. Here, he did work for one year and then he opened his branches first in state and after six month all states in his country. Now, God was with him and luck was in his pocket. After four years of his beginning of career, he started to open his diamond business’s branches in whole world. Now, he became richest person of the world and opened his head office in New York one of world famous city of world.
Now he remembers that old person who gave him this good suggestion. He goes to village for thanking him. That old saint is in same position as he was five year old. He is still crying, “What do you want, you will get it.”
Now he reaches to saint in village and touches his feet. He says that you were saying true. After five years, I realized that time is like diamond and good works are like pearls. I did not waste even one second in last five years and always did good works. So, I have become the richest person in the world in the field of diamond business. It is also true that before five years I spent 20 years but I could not do what I have done in five years. That old saint is happy and says that you have realized this thing very lately. I am still crying on this road that what do you want, you will get it and people are saying me mad. I think, you have also become mad. That person said that yes without becoming mad, we can not get success. From this story we can get idea that if students want to succeed in life, they should not waste the time and devote their time in education and think that this is the good work for them.
Swami Vivekananda also explains above things in his words that if you want to success in the life, you have to leave your narrow thinking. Because with narrow thinking, you can not think high. Without high thinking, you can not reach your success.
Besides above things, I think that practice of any work is must for getting success. Regular practice will give you power to get every thing which you want to get.
Jason of you tube’s Eclectic Asylum Art has proved it that nothing is impossible. He made Mona Lisa picture by using ms paint only and played it in video just 5 minutes and got the You tube award 2007 . But originally this painting is made within 2 hours and 30 minutes in ms paint. Watch it and think about “What do you want, you will get it ."
