The New Dawn
Today, early in the morning on the 1st day of a new calendar year, as I was having my walk, deeply savouring the freshness of the cool morning breeze, suddenly I started feeling really bad …. I missed my children and other family members ! Today was precisely after 26 years that I am all alone on a New Year !
On return, the first thing I was drawn towards was the albums. S.o.o wonderful just to flip through the photographs ( thanks to the Inventors of camera and photographs !!!!!) – especially the ones capturing the childhood of your children, yourself and other loved ones.
This one kept me spell bound for quite some time ( felt like eternity ). Aroused so many different kinds of emotions and thoughts! Children !! My God, how they love to wear the spectacles of the elders ! Then some thought came vividly to my mind, which is:
There are basically two sides to a person who achieves success and happiness in life - just like the twin sides of the same coin; :
1st - S/he always keeps the child in her/him alive.
2nd - S/he never stops growing .
For sometime now, I have been obssessed with reflecting on the qualities and human traits that successful persons/leaders, in general, display. A lot, in fact, l…o…t has been written and said about leadership qualities. They are all correct and relevant. I was just trying to categorise the important ones of them into the least possible number of “ bundles”. Look at a child and his natural dispositions and look at someone who is always “growing” consciously – merge the two and you have a recipe for unfailing leadership,success and happiness.
HAPPY NEW YEAR TO THE WHOLE WORLD !!
LET THIS BE THE YEAR OF REDISCOVERING THE CHILD IN YOUR ADULTHOOD & THE ADULT IN THE CHILD IN YOU !!
