I Have  A Dream…

To weed out the deadwood and grow new saplings

Ready to breathe freely, to enthuse fresh oxygen

Steadfast, impervious of infestation and erosion

To paint the firmament vivid blue and earth lush green

 

To see these new seedlings be happy, contented

And grow into strong, passionate loving beings

Those greyed and ripened be warm and well tucked

Protected from chill, revered for all their years of giving

 

To wipe off all the miseries of the world

And make earth so peaceful & serene

All the pain and sorrow be well put back in Pandora’s box,

returning world its lost sheen

 

Make life’s journey full of joyous moments

And treasure this wealth to look back and gleam

Bathing in memories of all those who brought joy in life

Whose presence n role had a special meaning

 

The whole planet be wholesome continent

Why fight amongst the geographical terrains

Want to show power n victories over the world?

Save planet, sow seeds and plenty hearts to win !

 

JOURNEY TO VICTORY !!

Journey to Victory…dedicated to my Winning Team!!

 

 

There’s a challenge ahead

There’s an combatant outside

There are hurdles n blockades

It’s a steep cliff to climb

Are you valiant and unafraid!

 

There’s struggle, there’s warfare

Time to unite, together we fasten

To prove to the greater dare

Your ability may be questioned

Are you ready to smarten for crusade!

 

You may fall before the rise

You may falter before success

You may die to get immortalized

It’s a long journey without recess

Are you ready to resurrect n resuscitate!

 

There’ll be darkness before the light

There’ll be calm, yet a storm

There’ll be no wrongs to get to right

To walk on frost, shed the warmth

Are you ready to show your might!

 

There’ll be fire to walk through

You got to be steel, not ductile

There’s a cause to lead the crew

To co-create at every mile

Are you ready to bleed n fight !

 

There’s a promise to deliver

There’s pledge to be fulfilled

There’s a cause to persevere

There’s an honor to keep n shield

Are you ready for joy of pride!

 

The tunnel is long n obscure

The height is new n unknown

There will be dawn ahead for sure

The glory of day n warm sun anon

Are you ready to endure long night!

 

There’s field we need to plough

Unravel, uneven is the terrain

We need to surge, the seed is sowed

We need the sun, minerals n rain

Are you ready to blossom n flower within!

 

We have done enough

And yet the thirst for more

To meet our goal however tough

Camaraderie, passion in galore

Are we ready to clear the din!

 

We are now close to our success

Ready to unfurl the flag of victory

The last thrust to the power we possess

Triumph now! Rest will be history

Are you armed with valor n ready to win!

To Win Each Day, Be A Warrior Each day !!

Amidst so much of hopelessness, let’s light hope and win ourselves each day…..

 

Every day I wake up, willful to realize

Take up wattle and daub, in my armor like a knight

There’s new realm to annex, there’s new battle to fight

There s new cause to take up, there’s new reason for strife

 

I need to whet my arms of belief and raison d’être

Need to gather courage to face it everyday

There’s a fire, there’s blood shed

There’s vengeance and hatred

 

Wonder as if am fighting for my selfish goals

Question myself too often, am I warring my foes

They are my very own and so is my holy cause

We need to come together and forward we march

 

It’s time to awaken them to their righteous role

To work for creating around a better world

Somewhere we have lost our vision, sparkle of our sight

We have forgotten our worth and brawn of our might

 

Hey all martials wake up, team up and move

Don’t lose existence, living like dead wood

You have to be fearless, if your goal you wish to attain

It’s you who have to become the catalyst for change

 

Have you all forgotten pleasure of co-creation

Weakened are the values, fallen are foundations

There’s greed n there’s lust, bereft of self esteem

Know not if they know the bliss of earning by true means

 

It’s time to make a difference, it’s time to join crusade

It’s time to be invincible, it’s time to invigorate

There s a dead silence around, no soul so stirred

They have learned to live like corpses or a life of marauder

 

Ahh! I am losing hope and ready to give in……….

 

I am ready to call it a day and feeling so deplete

A feeling of restiveness, senses so dead and beat

If it’s really worth it, I can also look the other way

Turn my back to misery and let the world decay

 

Then comes a light, to blind my unscrupulous thoughts

The keystones I have laid and groundwork of past

I sleep over this melancholy, with conflicting cacophony

Then dreams lift me to the world anew, springing with harmony

 

I wake up cleansed and bathed, resolute and steadfast

Ambiguous and unassuming, are emotions of the past

Once again to fight, once again to win

Invoking the rabble to create a new sovereign!

 

My Vision, Mission Statement and Goals of Life!!

One of those days, when I pause and introspect

One of those moments, I take stock of life’s true aspects

How much love and happiness I have accrued, how much in return I ‘ve spread

There’re dreams that I fulfilled while some just faded and withered

How much I have achieved and how much more is left

The essence of life so far journeyed, the search of soul that lies ahead

 

One of those days, when I feel special and blessed

I am grateful to God and all of you who incite this smile

Filled with sense of pride for the goals I have met

When I sit here today to reminisce and reflect!

………………………………….

If feels great this moment, there is  peace, quietude, sense of achievement…but can this be a permanent state of mind!

I have been mulling over this until I stepped out of an exhaustive two days’ workshop conducted on the understanding and imbibing of our organization’s Vision, Mission and goals. We almost pledged with hand on our heart to live by each and every word of it.

Later, I was complementing at the amount of seriousness and focus our organization attributes to its values and the sense of pride we take to live by them.

What about us as individuals. How earnestly do we take our lives?

 If it is the most important and valuable project to us, have we set a clear vision, mission and goal for ourselves. Isn’t it imperative to replicate this wisdom to our lives at large….

So I started working on this new premise and I conceived my strategy around life more formally, using the same format that we do while making organization’s strategy…..

 

My vision-

To transform my life’s journey from ‘Living’ to ‘Winning’!

My Mission-

I will enhance my self-worth, stature and contribution towards all the important stakeholders of my life by refining myself personally, professionally and spiritually in order to create a mutually Win-Win endeavor for all.

 Important Stakeholders-

 

Myself- My mind, body and soul- (Self-actualization, health and internal bliss)

Family & Friends- My spouse, children, close family and friends.

Career- My goals towards my occupation, organization, leaders, team members

Society- A section of society which needs support and abetting

My goals…

I had taken following set of goals to be evaluated and reviewed after every year.

  1. Myself- To feel blessed, fulfilled, physically fit and one with my soul-
    1. To learn and practice new realms.
    2. To publish my poetry.
    3. To be regular on physical fitness regime. Right eating.
    4. Spiritual connect for quietness and internal bliss.
  1. To be an adored and respected mother, spouse and kin to those in the family who have contributed in my journey.
  2. To be an admired and respected professional for quality of work and value I bring by my contribution.
  3. To engage and support my best to a cause towards society.

Being a corporate employee for a while now, I knew you can’t sustain for long by just making powerful statements. It was important therefore to develop a methodology to measure my success on same. To assess that I am making progress on my vision and mission of life.

After a lot of serious deliberation and some consultation with people in family and colleagues I trust,

I concluded as follows.…

The technique to measure if I have met my first personal goals is- When I look at the woman in the mirror, I see an image I revere, respect and adore. I see a person who has lived a life giving her best , have no regrets and yet so much desire to learn and contribute more.

When it comes to goals with respect to my family/friends, my stakeholders are the customers who should rate my performance. If they confirm that my presence and contribution has made a positive difference to their lives and achievement of their important goals…I am home.

Career goals are easy to measure- Top box performance rating and results in each role.

My goal towards society is under planning and deliberation. I have an outline and imagery in my mind, however I have to assign and commence in a specific timeline.

…………………….

Before you start judging me for my strategy and goals or may find this entire exercise a little dramatic….My simple message to all is- it has really helped me crystallize and affirm important objectives of my life with an immense clarity ( However ingenuous they may sound). All this while, these thoughts were there in my mind but obscure and hazy. Having deciphered and documented them is like making a commitment to myself that I stand avowed to fulfil.
