Its been almost 5 years since I've attended Alive & Fearless. I was initially a lost chap, always unhappy and ungrateful, not knowing what to do with my life.
In my eyes, you are nothing but a savior. You showed me a path towards development. You gave me the desire to grow & learn. You gave me faith & courage to dream bigger and you gave me hope to keep going.
Napoleon Hill used to speak about how he would have a counsel with all his role models in his mind. I used to do the same. But keeping you as my role model.
Sir even if I thank you a million times over it still wouldn't be enough because you had given me a new life and gave me the tools to forge a new identity for myself.
It is because of you that my friends started respecting me and other people started noticing and liking me.
It is because of you that I am the presentable person I am today.
It is because of you that I even started praying and have such a strong faith in God.
It is because of you that I am now always thinking about how to make my society & world a better place.
There was a poem I had written a long time ago. It goes like this-
"Be our lighthouse and show me the way when I'm too far out,
too far involved battling my own demons,too vain to shout
out for help when I'm lost in oblivion,
where my minds dark minions
speak directly to my heart
which does not pay heed,
to the opinions I impart"
You were that lighthouse when we were lost at sea.
