100% - शत प्रतिशत

Are you sure? 100% sure?

Every day we encounter this question, and we try to respond by yes, no or maybe; The beauty of life is, it has never ending questions, sometimes answers are in choices or sometimes, it's just situations, but we move on.

Ever since I remember about my inquisitive mind and the first set of questions i had in my childhood days like: Why Earth is round?

Why can't I fly? Chakras, Tatvas, Mythology and so on..

I did faced many troubles because of this never ending thrust of knowing everything, felt contentment and emptiness at the same time. 

With time I understood, how decision making works, In order to decide what you want, first decide what you don't want, and this methodology worked well with me. My education, career, or life partner are some beautiful examples of it.

Concluding this blog post by quoting a wonderful poem by Swami Vivekananda, which I read in my school and it literally changed the way I perceive everything:

"When I asked God for strength
He gave me difficult situations to face


When I asked God for brain & brawn
He gave me puzzles in life to solve


When I asked God for happiness
He showed me some unhappy people

When I asked God for wealth
He showed me how to work hard

When I asked God for favours
He showed me opportunities to work hard

When I asked God for peace
He showed me how to help others

God gave me nothing I wanted
He gave me everything I needed."
