Khudi ko kar buland itna ke har taqdeer se pehle
Khuda bande se khud pooche bata teri raza kya hai.”- Allama Mohammad Iqbal
English Translation- “Empower/elevate yourself so strong/high that God Himself, before framing fate/destiny, should ask you- Tell me, what is your will/consent?”
He had fallen in love with the above amazing #KhudKoKarBuland Urdu quote by Allama Mohammad Iqbal the moment he heard it.
He was twelve-years old when his father had shared it with him.
He had decided that that he would strengthen himself that even God will consult with him regarding his intent.His decision to be famous and successful received a jolt when his parents expired in a road-accident.
With their death, all his aims and aspirations seemed to expire...
There are some things like death that are not in our control...
When the seniors in their family, looked for his father’s documents, they found no property or life-insurance papers.
Alas! His father had not planned for his family... This proved to be a major setback as the young lad had no funds to fall back upon.
He worked very hard with self-actualization as his aim. He studied really well and won scholarships.
He wanted to become an entrepreneur.
Not having any parental property or funds, he had to take loan to start his business. But, the bank wouldn’t give him a loan as he had no income. Thus, he had to take up a job.
After his marriage and when he became a father, he became extra careful. He took care of saving for rainy days too. He did not want his daughter to suffer the same way as he had...
He pledged- “I will give her everything to make her life happy. She must fulfill all her aims...”
He insured his life, his family’s life and their property.
Some years later, when he had got enough funds, he started his own business.
He became a successful businessman.
Today, his family is secure.
He has shared his words of wisdom with his daughter-
“Life is uncertain-
Sometimes a pain...
People & things expire,
But, not our desire.
Our aims won’t expire-
If we have the fire!
