“Never stop fighting until you arrive at your destined place - that is, the unique you. Have an aim in life, continuously acquire knowledge, work hard, and have perseverance to realize the great life. “ A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
Kalam reminds us to continue fighting for what is important. He explains that a lofty goal of becoming okay with where you are in life should always be primary. People should seek to learn from others who have had experience in life and have been able to endure its tribulations. I learn from the older people who I come in contact with daily. I feel that I earn a wealth of knowledge through every person that I meet. Life is an ongoing process and the journey provides us each with different resources that we can each decide to learn from. The “unique you” is that which has absorbed much from the differing resources that each of us are exposed to. A person must go forward proactively and be open to all of the lessons that we each are exposed to on a daily basis. Many lessons come to us without our knowledge. I am not sure that we can ever achieve a final destination which is our “destined place”. Perhaps our destined place is not a place at all. We should all seek to be secure and comfortable on the journey. Life seems to be about the journey and not the final destination. I bounce my ideas off of the elders who I am in contact with and they seem to agree. I am incredibly thankful for the experience that I have gained from speaking with these elders.
From what I have learned, elders can help to unlock the secrets for the younger. I will forever be seeking the destined place. I don’t know that I concur in thinking that it is attainable. I believe that I will never stop fighting to attain knowledge through hard work. A great life will become reality through the effort that is put forth. Life is about the journey and I am hopeful that I will be able to attain a secure and sound life through the continuous effort that I will put forth. I am curious to hear any opinions or thoughts that you may have. I thank you very much for reading.
