I as a kid was very stubborn…
even as an adult, I continue doing so! 😎
And it’s same with almost all of us. Stubbornness is integral part of our nature. It’s mixed in self-respect, confidence & many virtues. So, it’s difficult to be separated from us.
When we were kids, we were stubborn to get our favorite toy, our favorite candy, our favorite TV show and what.
As we grow, priorities change, but stubbornness remains. Be it being stubborn for getting pizza party, first day first show of our favorite movie, buying phone of our choice, or even choosing our fav. Bike which looks good, over the bike which Dad was suggesting which gives better mileage.
Crux is, we do what our heart says. As it gives satisfaction. Which is the ultimate need.
Thus, this little stubbornness, makes us what we are, it keeps the kids in us alive, it keeps us alive.
But, strange fact is, we keep this integral part of our nature to sidelines at a very important time.
Everyone goes through that certain stage of life when you feel yourself to be in complete hell or high water situation, i.e., making a decision about your career! What stream to go in? Should I follow the “XYZ ka beta” just because he’s pretty successful in his 10-6 desk job?
And in this moment of dilemma, we forget who we are. We lose our stubbornness & let others decide for us. Koi door ka Relative to some distant friend ka friend, who all have Successful ka label on their head & they tell you to follow a field, just because, they followed it. Or just because THEY BELIEVE isme bahut scope hai.
Guys, give yourself a Break! You deserve better. Your heart knows you more than these all fake well-wishers. They’ll be far gone when you’ll pass or fail in the struggle of life. They are just giving you random advice, because you’re not taking a stand for yourself.
Why to search a right thing on a wrong place? Close your eyes & find out, what would you like to do the rest of your life. If you find yourself great at speaking, then why not to utilize that skill to become a radio jockey, video jockey or even a rapper! Rather than giving entrance of engineering, which you know already isn’t your cup of tea.

Even Walt Disney, the founder of Walt Disney Company was a news editor before he realized that his skills were worth as an animator. Imagine, we wouldn’t have got such an entertaining cartoon character, Mickey Mouse, to revive in our childhood playlist, if he hadn’t broke the mould!
