How to stay positive in todays environment?

Its a no brainer – everything is falling apart now a days. Every other person i meet has a story about a friend who was fired or laid off. Everyone i know knows somone whose visa got rejected. Every other day i hear about a project getting scrapped or postponed forever.

Some of my very dear friends lost their job this week. I felt very bad when i heard about it. These are people i worked with for last couple of years and was very greatful to have them as my team mates/colleagues. Today, they are gone.

Some of these people had great expectations from life. They invested in their personal and family life to make the most of it – and all of a sudden this blow must have shattered many of their dreams; If not for long, for short time ofcourse.

How long this will go on? I have not Idea. Is there a solution to fix this? Everyone is searching for one. What can we do? Yes, that i can tell you.

The only thing we can do in this environment and current situation is to have faith and confidence. Every once in a while -whether you believe it or not- God tests us. He wants to see how we perform against all odds. He wants to confirm if we still believe in him, and in ourselves. I am sure you must be feeling the pain of this situation in one or the other way, but this too shall pass.

Recently, many companies have done a salary cut including mine – but that does not mean we should be fearful of whats going to happen next? Whats going to happen will happen – You have not control over it. What you can control is how you react to it, and how can you make the best of it?

In my conversation with friends and family i always tell them that Job is not secure. It is the farthest thing from security – in the bad times. In good times ofcourse you love a 9 to 5 job which helps you pay bills, go on vacations and enjoy life to the fullest. But in the bad times, the entreprenuer in you start to kick you. What are you doing waiting for something to happen? Why do you like to be a puppet in someone’s hand? Why do you keep falling for the wrong stuff? Go, do something yourself and see how this world can stop you?

Friends, i can talk for long on this topic but that wont be justice to your important time. If you are reading this, i just want to tell you one thing – Have Faith in Yourself, and Trust in God. Things will get Better.

Who says that you can’t make a hole in the sky? Just throw a stone with all your might….

कौन कहता है के आसमां में सुराख़ नहीं हो सकता, एक पत्थर तो तबीयत से उछालो यारों!
(Kaun Kehta Hai Ke Aasmaan Mein Surakh nahi ho sakta, Ek Patthar To Tabeeyat Se Ucchhalo Yaaron!)
