Do you know KFC? Well that’s a crazy question right, who doesn’t? So, we all must be familiar with the fact that they have some secret blend of ingredients that they use in their preparations. This secret ingredient makes them different from the others.
That’s regarding KFC. What about you? Do you have a secret ingredient? Is there a secret ingredient to life?
Recently I saw this movie called Kung Fu Panda. It’s an animated movie with a really strong but simple message. That message did strike me so I thought I should share it here.
This movie is about a Panda who wants to learn Kung Fu, yes a Panda!
A Panda doing Kung Fu is a surprise and strange too. But it’s his ambition, it’s his dream.
We, like this Panda have dreams, and on many occasions the world sees us as unfit for that dream. So what? Does that make us love our dream less? No, it doesn’t, and if it does, then that isn’t your dream.
The climax of this movie is what made it special. There is a thing called “The dragon scroll,” the person who earns it gets to read it and gets some special powers. But when it is opened, it’s blank! A blank scroll that reflects the face of the reader.
That sounds ordinary, doesn’t it?
Everything that we see in life is special or ordinary in the way you see it. If you look into the mirror and see something special in it, then you’ve just made yourself special. There is no secret ingredient in life, it’s just you.
We can read thousands of inspirational blogs and view as many inspirational videos, but if you don’t see yourself as special, all this will not make any difference to you.
If Bill Gates would see himself as ordinary, today there would be no Microsoft!
If Steve Jobs would see himself as ordinary, many of you wouldn’t be holding that iPhone in your hands.
It’s just one decision that can make a world of difference. Nothing is ordinary untill you see it that way.
We all have different dreams and ambitions but remember that it’s your dream and if it doesn’t make you feel special then stop dreaming.
Success is not about doing ordinary things, it’s doing them extra ordinarily by people who are special.
We make our lives complicated by looking for secrets of life, but why don’t we realise that there are no secrets, our lives are like a bank page, what we write on it is what we are.
I’m ending by sharing another quote from this movie.
Have an amazing day and always remember, there are no secret ingredients in life, it’s just you.
