There are two kinds of people. First, the mass category - those who have found the end point of their journey, their destination, that is to be - stay where ever you are- at whatever cost. And the second minor category, those people for whom the new journey has just begun and the highway goes via US while the destination may or may not be here.
Up until now how much ever i have figured out about myself-ourselves, i am more close to the later category. I am most impressed with the 'education' this country has to offer because its so much valued, its sort of life long investment even if you choose to spend your savings or take loan for it in comparison to the earnings that we crave for (specially converting it into Rupees). Because no matter which country, continent, small town life will take you after x number of years, your alumni network, knowledge and circle of influence is with you to propel in your 'whatever worth it' idea. If you know what you are good at, stay focused, know how to get it done, have a purpose or raise resources for it, i guess getting decent pay is not something to be bothered about. More of an entrepreneurial spirit or lifestyle.
What i have become very sure of over the years or being repeatedly told is that i do unknowingly exhibit a certain amount of sheer madness (on the rise) when i am into something - i don't know if its something what we call passion which exuberates so much intensity in my efforts. When you can consistently work on something without being bogged down. When you are not tired about proving what you have in your head through telling compelling stories every single day, writing them in an assertive argument or a flawless business plan or a sales pitch while looking into the eyes of a complete set of strangers who have deep pockets that you are eyeing - that absolute passion that fuels you to talk endlessly given a chance to present your idea or your baby 'pilot project'. Everything seems in control and you are so confident to find solutions. That sudden rush of blood that makes you wake up in the morning and go for work with gusto.
