To Be or Not To Be...

Life, as we all admit, is full of challenges day in and day out. For some, living itself is a huge challenge whereas there are those that go hunting for challenges and find ever new obstacles that they must cross to get the much -needed adrenaline rush.

Some of the biggest challenges faced by the common men involve the day-to-day drudgery of providing the basic necessities for their families. Some of us find it a challenge to get a better paying job while others are faced with a challenge meeting their budget obligations and paying their high-interest Credit Card debt.

The above situations do not necessarily leave any choice whether we want to be in that particular situation or not. Of course, no one wants to be faced with the daily dilemma of affordability. For them the question: ‘To Be or Not to Be’ may be a moot point. However, what I am going to share in here might motivate a few of these unfortunate souls to pick up the gauntlet and make onerous efforts to get out and BE the Winner that they were destined to be.

How could one ever challenge the universally recognized wisdom of the ever-green 16th Century English Poet, Playwright, Actor and Writer par excellence that Shakespeare has been recognized as, over the centuries by one and all alike?

In “Hamlet” Act 3 Scene 1, the dilemma faced by Prince Hamlet of Denmark while considering avenging his father’s murder by his uncle, Shakespeare presented in these beautiful words “To Be or Not to Be” shall always hold true as long as civilization exists. The only difference is that some of us recognize the challenges and actually do something about it while most others fail to do anything. Those that do, take necessary steps to address the situation head-on whereas the others end up losing more than they could ever imagine.

Think of the three most important things that you always wanted in your life, first as a child, then as a teenager and last, but not the least, as an adult. Have those three things always remained constant until acquired or you ended up compromising per given situation and settled for something else instead?

I am sure by now you must have realized that life is subject to change at every step. Those that understand the cycle and learn to flow with it win the game while an attempt to go against the system poses challenges that we are seldom prepared for.

Why try to reinvent the wheel when it already exists?

PLEASE take note: I am not implying failure by the longest shot. Instead, my observation is that our preparedness to change the course of the tide is in our own hands and the only thing we need, first and foremost, is to learn the techniques rather than getting carried away by the strong currents of the tide, into oblivion.

We can find umpteen numbers of examples of ferociously raging rivers that have been tamed with ingeniously crafted dams, bridges, culverts and specifically added/diverted tributaries, all for the benefit of mankind. These amazingly thoughtful and determined individuals, the thinkers, the designers, the architects, the hardy teams and the labor force, they have also risen from within us.

The above goes to prove my point that no matter how difficult a challenge, once we take it upon ourselves to face the same head-on, our willingness to learn the techniques, to acquire the necessary skills and then to gather enough hands to assist us, all come together to support us. The first and foremost necessity is our own willingness “TO BE”, rather than “Not to be”.

In simple terms, it is entirely up to ourselves whether we want “to be that daring soul to face extremities or life’s challenges or we do not want to be” in that enviable position of a WINNER!
