(from an Indian perspective)
The very theory of evolution of world from stagnant to dynamic and life thriving took over eras and ages along, and is still on it’s way of making and moulding. Life existence and human thereby is no exception and thus subject to this timeless procedure of evolving persona, stamina and intellectualism. Therefore any aim of one’s own pursuit or passion ought to take a better half of gestation period and requires a greater patience, perseverance and an optimistic outlook to one’s own capability. Shortcut is in no way fruitful to achieve a greater good let alone job opportunities.
However in recent world with increasing materialistic outlook and cravings for a secured future to the earliest, instead of satisfaction and reverence in career fields, the concept of “quick money” opened up to a spectre of shallow ways of income to youth one often falls prey to even at lowest of salary for a seemingly stable financial commodity often even out of family pressure deviating from the purpose of life a person dreamed of. For a person to achieve a broader prospect of satisfaction or in what the society may call “a good job” would surely take more sweat and blood than what’s most easily available, and this realisation of truth would give one a realistic reason to fight along, never to look back.
Most importantly, the parameters of a good job is not the one with greater salary and allowances, not even the one with greatest of fame and power but the one that makes one feel elated, ecstatic and enthusiastic about, recurring to one’s own areas of interest and awe. As Confucius once said :
“Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life.”
Looking into real life example setters is the iconic Tata Iron and Steel Company (TISCO) founded as a protest against British colonial rule, boycotting foreign goods based upon self reliance and sufficience by Jamshetji Tata in 1912 that took over 100 years to attain a stable curve and is today one of the most prosperous and growing company of India.
Apart from business, research works, artistic and athletic skills take a greater time to master up enough for one’s living. It costed various scientists their entire lifetime to frame their insight to a practical ground, some yet again in vain, learning through experience and knowledge by age and time.
Time in itself is the greatest teacher, therefore cheating over time is disrespecting the most natural phenomenon of experience gathering and knowledge concussion and thus never of actual benefit, but is sure to cause stress and grieve in older age.
The quick sands of life is sure to baffle us, the clouds shimmering to darkness would not made us see too clear, stumble stones shall put us down to feet, over and over again. Yet , the never giving up zeal never fades, for we are no common mammals but the most prudent, most developed, most intellectual, the most diversified of all species, the most precious gift of The Divine Evolution.
