Greetings to all my friends, I am Dr. Ujjwal Patni speaking. Today, I am going to share a piece of good news with you. I fear you may suffer a heart attack.
The good news is that, all those people who are hearing, reading or watching me at this very moment, are all billionaires. You will be shocked to hear this, and will wonder how this can be true. You will laugh it off and think that I may be joking. I will again repeat that you all are billionaires. You will be bent upon thinking that you do not even have enough money to pay off the installments of your house, and that you move about on a two-wheeler and cannot afford to buy a four-wheeler. Very often you find it difficult to pay the salary to your staff. “Even in such a situation, you are a billionaire,” I emphasize.
Friends, we are all billionaires. I face this truth, each day of my life. Some time back, we happened to visit a restaurant by the name of ‘Dialogue in the dark’. Somebody had suggested that if I ever get the opportunity, I must surely visit this restaurant.
When I entered ‘Dialogue in the dark’ with my family, it was pitch dark inside. I cannot even imagine that the darkness inside could be so blinding. We were escorted inside by the waiters who explained to us how we could grope our way by touching the walls. We were given some fruits, vegetables, and other articles, which we had to recognize merely by touch. We were led to an area with statues of eminent leaders and freedom fighters. We had to touch these idols and try to recognize them. After this we were invited to a game of cricket. Guided by the sound of the tapping ball, we had to hit our shots. After so much of hide and seek, we were called for dinner. You will not believe that I had to hold my face and grope for my mouth. I had to literally feel, with my hands and fingers all over the plate, to find the daal and vegetables. I had to hold the chapatti and make pieces. It was a terrible and unbearable experience. I left my meal mid-way and came out. It was such an eye opener. We realized the value of sight, which otherwise we take for granted.
We use our two hands so effortlessly throughout the day for a whole lot of tasks, without even realizing their importance. Only a person who does not have hands will truly understand their value. You can view numerous videos of Nick Vujicic on the Internet. He suffers from a rare disorder with a deficit of arms and legs. You will be amazed to know how deftly he uses his mouth to apply paste on his brush. He even holds the glass with his mouth for a mouth wash. He shaves himself by holding the shaver in place, with his neck. People without feet can only understand their worth, otherwise people with feet may just relax and do nothing. Ask the dumb what is the value of speech. Compare them to people who can speak but utter bitter words, discourage others and spread negativity all around. Ask those who are deaf, what is the meaning of music. To them all sounds are alike because they cannot hear anything.
Friends, you are truly blessed, possessing organs which are priceless. Can you ever think of selling your eyes, your hands, or your feet, even at a cost of 2-4 crores? Your organs are worth more than crores and crores of rupees. Be thankful to the divine almighty God, who has gifted you with a property worth billions and trillions. He has directly made you a billionaire and sent you into this universe.
Have you ever realized the plight of parents with a mentally disabled child? In order to raise such a child, both mother and father put in all their energy and money; their life becomes a struggle.
Be grateful to God that he has endowed you with the power to think. You have an immense energy to plan your life; to see your past, present and future. Instead, you are being so ungrateful by thinking only of the adversaries in your life. You waste your time thinking about those who hurt you and why? Since you have the tremendous power to think, at least utilize it to think positively.
Friends, you are the owner of property worth trillions of rupees. Some scientists from England have taken up research to evaluate the cost of various organs of the human body. They started working out the cost of every nerve, each blood vessel, and every organ present in the body. The evaluation has only reached mid- way, and the mid- way cost is working out to the tune of eight billion dollars. This is the cost of a human body. Instead of being proud possessor of a body worth billions of rupees, we are complaining about trivial matters. We get up each morning with a drooping face, and begin the day criticizing people and gossiping. The rest of the day we watch unproductive Television serials. Instead of this, we should be utilizing all our energy in doing productive work.
My dear friends, the visit to ‘Dialogue in the dark’ made me realize how precious my eyes are. I thank God from the deepest cores of my heart that a visit to such places evokes a feeling of sympathy and compassion within me. Whenever I come across somebody who is under privileged than me, I realize how able I am. Otherwise, 99% people start counting their deficiencies, when they meet a person better than them.
God has given you a brain which works like a super computer. You have been bestowed with the capacity to dream. Fulfill your dreams by getting into action. Stop making excuses. Keep laziness and fault finding at bay. Stop leading a mediocre life full of compromises. Let decision making and action be your focal points. Otherwise, it would be sheer stupidity to waste such a priceless property as your body.
Friends, I wish to ask you a few questions, and I would like to hear from you so that we can have a discussion. This will enable me to know if you have liked my thoughts.
The first question is - If we have the capacity to listen, to think, and to understand things, then should we not be considered as V.I.P.?
The second question is – Who in your opinion, is the person who can defeat you, or curtail your success?
I firmly believe that you will answer both these questions. This thought may pull some people out of their comfort zone, it may awaken others, and inspire few others to an extent that their life is changed.
If you volunteer to do this small social service, you will get blessings from people which will add to your account, and lead you to the road to success.
I am out on a mission, to inspire every average person towards excellence. My mission is to make every unsuccessful person achieve success. I am on a mission to carry every person to the next level, and show them the right path. Alone, I am not so strong and capable to complete my mission. I need your support to go ahead with my mission.
