Finally I feel that I am off the RAT-RACE

When I was in school I read this book, “Rich Dad Poor Dad” and got to realize that I was part of a system and was running the Rat Race.

The idea is simple, a kid is born into a system. The kid goes to school, then college, then finds a job, then gets married and have a couple of kids and those kids repeat the same. The cycle never ends.

Rat RaceTo be honest, the Rat Race is easy, its something what others expect you to do and obviously you live a common life. The framework is set for you, you just have to go along the flow.

Last day, I was at cochin with my friend @Zeqox and I heard him saying to a friend of mine (@Rajeshtaracad) that I was now off the framework, out of my comfort zone. Thats when I realized that I was off the rat race, and that moment just felt awesome.

Now it doesn’t matter what I do; honestly I am not 100% sure of anything right now, but I am loving it. There is so much to learn, so much to see and so many places to go. I am so glad I have a great bunch of friends to turn on to and to support me when I am in doubt.

I believe the opportunity I have to choose my way at my will is not something everyone have. I feel so blessed for the awesome opportunity ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Oh boy, you should as “what is this rat race?” ๐Ÿ˜›

  3. Come to think of it, I never was in the rat race. The road not taken was always the one I took. I know how you feel ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. I think you are the first one from our batch to break the cycle ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. I remember that book! I enjoyed it as well. Now I’m going to have to dig it out of whatever box it was stuffed in and reread. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Don’t worry, I’m not sure about anything, either. You just have to take things one day at a time. As long as you strive to keep learning and growing, you’re doing all right. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    1. Well, now that you have said this, I think I have to re-read it myself. Let me try that, maybe I would find some new points!

  5. “The Matrix is a system, Neo. That system is our enemy. But when you’re inside, you look around, what do you see?
    Businessmen, teachers, lawyers, carpenters. The very minds of the people we are trying to save. But until we do, these
    people are still a part of that system and that makes them our enemy. You have to understand, most of these people are
    not ready to be unplugged. And many of them are so inert, so hopelessly dependent on the system that they will fight to
    protect it.”

    …….last line defines everything…. ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Oops, thats heavy, really heavy stuff ๐Ÿ˜›
