Which one do you think is the longest film you have seen till date?

Titanic instantly comes to my mind. Let me know if you think of any others.

The point of this Nano was not to quiz you on this but there was a deeper thought behind it.  

The Longest Film that you will not only see but will also live is your life and the world around it. 

This is your Story. You are the Lead Actor, and You are the Director.

This story will have the problems you faced (or didn’t), the challenges you took up (or didn’t), the difference you made in the lives of people, your successes, your learnings and all the other masala.

You do not have to break mountains like the phenomenal Manjhi (The Mountain Man) did, but we have our own mountains to break.

So, what are your mountains and what do you want your story to be?

Reflect over this.

Finally, which of the following do you want to be remembered as?

  • The Mutual Fund Sales Gal/Guy or  
  • The Market Beater or Timer or 
  • The Person who made a happy difference in the lives of people and
  • The Person who delivered a Return on Life in the lives of people or
  • Fill in the Blanks in your own words

As always, the choice is yours.
