Kick, Start Yourself!

Someone has greatly said that life is all about motivation. Life is all about how positive and optimistic are you about different aspects of your life. Textile Institute Students Forum, keeping in mind the past tragic events, arranged a motivational session on 8th October 2008 in TISF slot. The session was headed by Akbar Senior Motani from NAVITUS (a leading corporate assistance and motivational organization).

Mr. Akbar started the session by asking the definition of success. After collecting different views from students, he coined his own definition according to which “Success is all about leading your life with great responsibility”. However, leading is “be the first” and responsibility is “ability to respond at different times”. He further emphasized the concept by saying that it is not about winning or loosing, it is all about how high you bounce back. He gave the example of Mr. HONDA and told his story that how his factory was bombed twice and how he kept himself motivated towards his ambition and how he became the founder of motor cycle.

On a critical and serious discussion stage, he delivered few condolence words for our beloved friend; Mairaj. He further said that we all have to go where we have come from and we need to get back to our life. He said that we have to see the positive side of things as Mairaj in either way has been saved from sins and dirty things of the world. He must be in eternal piece and the maximum we can do is to pray for him. We were also being motivated and wished good luck for our upcoming hourlies.

On the question of one student, Mr. Akbar answered that he did not believe in luck and that he was a strict believer of our perception about things. An example of balancing a pencil on our finger tip was also given in which he asked us to balance a pencil on our finger tip by looking closely at the finger and we were not able to do it. Then he asked us to balance the pencil by looking broadly at it and we did it amazingly. He said that we usually, get stuck into a situation rather than looking broadly at it. We put obligations on ourselves that we cannot do this, we cannot do that but in the real sense all those things are possible which can be visualized. In the end, he was awarded a TIP tie by Mr. Ali Hafeez on behalf of TIP. Mr. Ali Hafeez thanked all the students and faculty members who became a part of this session at this critical point of time and also for behaving such decently in front of the speaker.

  1. I do agree with speaker’s thoughts about being Optimist in even the worst scenarios of life … though the examples he used to make his point are vague and pessimist …

    “He further said that we all have to go where we have come from and we need to get back to our life. He said that we have to see the positive side of things as Mairaj in either way has been saved from sins and dirty things of the world.

    First Mr. Rameez for sake of sense, try to speak proper English or at least correct ur spellings in ur great articles or commentaries… Its PEACE not PIECE … and its Hourlies not Hour LIES … Jeez

    Anyhow coming back to the point, The point i quoted in which speaker gave an example of our beloved Miraj and than used that example to show us the most pessimist picture of life by saying that we should take Miraj’s death as “he is saved from dirty things and sins from this world” … Here am unable to understand what kinda crocked up motivational speaker he was … i mean what he needed to do was to tell people that this world is whatever good or bad place, we can change the odds in our favor by our hard work and our motivation to live … he should motivate students to live not to die … What he advocate by using such example was that World is full of dirty things and sins so Miraj is better now in Heaven, lets all of us commit suicide and join him in heaven by leaving all these dirty things and sins of this world …

    What a motivational speaker required to do is to bring life in even a mentally n emotionally dead person … what he did, he is telling us the benefits of death … and talking about afterlife … which is frankly a mere imaginary world.

    So guys try to question such speakers, instead of listening to their crap like they are better than u … am not saying that start considering urself better than them, but at least question them if u feel they are bluffing and question them with the intentions of learning some more from them …

    Life is a wonderful gift, we should cherish it, we should respect it, we should consider it something productive … Yes death is reality, but an unfortunate one as well …

    Thanks for reading. 🙂
