HEARTBEATS – amazing humans

The world is going through innumerable predicaments like terrorism,  detrimental effects of criminal minds through the modern tools of social media, economic instability, religious atrocities, and ever expanding crimes of various nature, but the most unfortunate reality is the inability of human beings to realize and understand that human beings are possessed with unlimited power to transform their lives positively, against all odds, and negativity, though easily accessible, may not be the sole solution.

There are many examples of human beings who have proved this time and again, in human history and yet we somehow appear to be unwilling to accept this miraculous ability of man.  We are aware that conspicuous changes in the society and life styles of human beings have been the result of extra ordinary efforts and achievements of ordinary people, and not by extra ordinary and super intelligent people, academic achievers, technocrats, or so called professionals.

The boy who was rejected by schools saying that he does not possess average intelligence, forcing his mother to teach him at home, and later when he became inventor of 1098 discoveries extremely useful to mankind, Thomas Alva Addison, proved the extra ordinary merit of human mind.  The extra ordinary lives of Joan of Arc, Helen Keller, Florence Nightingale, Abraham Lincoln, Mahatma Gandhi, Martin Luther King Junior, Nelson Mandela, Winston Churchill, and so on, the list of extra ordinary game changers the world has seen is endless.

There are living examples too in Mata Amritanandamayi, who is only lower primary school educated, knows only one language Malayalam, and yet is capable of addressing millions all over the globe, Arnold Schwarzenegger, six times Mr. Universe title holder, evergreen Hollywood Hero, Governor of California, who was actually an amazingly slender boy when he entered the gym for the first time, Oprah Winfrey who was raped by a group of boys and thrown in a garden in New York, who became host of the world famous Oprah Winfrey Show on TV, actor, producer, and a woman of substance, presently draws a salary of $75 million, with a net worth of $3.1 billion, as per Wikipedia, and many others, the list of living examples of amazing humans is again endless, and growing.

Why is it that only a few are able to realise their potential fully while a majority of others are not only unable to realise it but they succumb to failure, depression, and perennial miseries, leading to even suicidal tendencies.  There have been enough evidences to show that the main reason for such disharmony of lives is because majority of aspirants are extremely worried about tomorrow or the future, which is uncertain and unpredictable, afraid of failure and uncertainties, which knowingly or unknowingly keep on drawing their attention from the tasks at hand.

In fact if you do things at hand superbly and excellently well putting your full energy to use, leaving no room for any sort of anxiety, it will automatically make you successful and safeguard your future.  In fact this is the secret of success of all the extra ordinary achievers mentioned above.  But ordinary people make them the role models, get inspired and venture to emulate mainly focusing on their success stories, rather than inner strengths.
