“Why do we have brakes in a car”?
Varied answers were received, like,
- “To stop”,
- “To reduce speed”,
- “To avoid collision” etc.,
but the best answer was, “To enable you to drive faster”
Give it a thought. It’s true but seldom such smart out of box thinking is done, much less appreciated. For a moment assume you have no brakes in your car then how fast will you drive your car?! It’s because of brakes that we can dare to accelerate, dare to go fast and reach destinations we desire.
At various points in life, we find our parents,teachers, mentors & friends etc. questioning your progress, direction or decision. We consider them as irritants or consider such inquiries as “brakes” to our ongoing work. But, remember, it’s because of such questions (read periodical brakes) that you have managed to reach where you are today. Without brakes, you could have skid, lost direction or gone astray or met with an unfortunate accident !!!. Learn to appreciate the ‘brakes’ in your life. Use them wisely…
