“Attitude is not what you wear …..it is what you are…….”
During my college days ……attitude was one word which we all use to laugh at because it was so extensively used by my professors that we were very tired of hearing that word …but trust me ….they were always right when they said “Attitude is not what you wear, It is what you are”. Though this was a very popular quote I heard it for the first time and many times in my college for various reasons…..hmmmmm certain facts might sound stupid, some might sound humorous some might be bitter …but Facts are Facts…..thats reality isn’t it?
This was during my starting days in the college….. one of the popular public personalities in India had gifted me 3 to 4 small books about freedom fighters and true heroes (Bhagat Singh, Chandrashekar Azad, Savarkar, Rani lakshmibai) on an occasion of Raksha bandhan (Indian festival). It was at the same time we had a presentation in our class where we could choose any Indian personality to speak about for 5 to 10 minutes…..
I had chosen to speak about “Bhagat singh” and if am not wrong there was this guy in our class who had chosen “Chandrashekar azad”as his topic of the day. What is special here is that this guy was a look alike of chandrashekar azad….He had grown mustache just like the one which great Azad had…
of course he spoke very well about freedom fight, army , role of Azad etc……..friends you might be wondering with what connection am talking about this guy , attitude, Great heroes …isn’t it?
Here it is …..
Many of us watch movies —> admire movie stars
—> wear what they wear —>That’s it
Many of us read about great personalities —>admire their intelligence
—>Style like they style —>That’s it
Many of us talk about great leaders —> admire their struggle
—> Enact like they act —>That’s it
–> The End
All that I need you to do is ask this question to yourself……
Is just admiration?? Wearing what a movie star wears?? Styling your hair like that of a famous person?? Buying what some star endorses??Talking fantastically without anything truly inside you is allllllllllll that we call as an ATTITUDE ??? Are these the only things which we are able to see in great personalities ?????
Why don’t we take one step ahead and listen to the subtle messages of what these great personalities have told us without openly telling…
Their struggle, their hard work, their dedication, their learnings in life, and mainly their own and unique ATTITUDE have made them great and that’s the reason why they are role models, trend setters for us….
So I wish you wear your unique attitude (with good virtues) and you can set your own trend……..
At the end …for that person who was a look alike of Chandrashekar azad in my college class …whichever corner of the world you are ….you will be a simply great person if you have really dedicated your life in army or any other activities connected to social benefit because “Long back you styled like a star and today we wish you to be a star” …..its okay you can do it with that stylish mustache……..:-) 🙂
Style like “Stars” but better be “Stars”
