I would urge all my readers to dedicate 76 minutes of their lives on a video that could become a life altering experience. I promise each one of you that this video will impact you in a manner that would help you to solve many unsolved mysteries of your life. In my life I have come across many confused souls that were in search for an “ANSWER”. So what kind of an “ANSWER” are these people looking for? The truth of the matter is that these souls had no clue about the “QUESTION”.

LIFE” …. That is what these people are trying to figure out. People spend more time lamenting about their problems rather than focusing on the purpose of their own existence on this planet. Many people whine about their life and they feel that their life is the most unfair life. But they forget the fact that there are many people in this world in situations that are worse compare to their own situation.

Yesterday I saw a video called “Randy Pausch Last Lecture: Achieving Your Childhood Dreams” which shed a lot of light on life. Many people seek a mentor or a Guru that can help them to unfold the mysteries of this world. People, believe me after watching this video you will be your own guru. There is no better teacher than life

Randy Paush is a professor at a prestigious university who has been diagnosed with cancer and doctors have told him that he has only 3-4 months to live. He is a very talented gentleman and has achieved most of his childhood dreams. In the video he doesn’t talk about his cancer or his problems, instead he is teaching all of us the secret of becoming an achiever. He is such a strong force mentally and that’s the reason he has no fear of death. He could have locked himself in a room and sob about his ill fate but instead of that he wants to spend each and every second of his remaining life having fun.

I would strongly suggest each and every one of you to see this video. I am hoping that each one of you would be ashamed of your own self for complaining and whining about hardships of your own life. If you feel ashamed of yourself after watching this video that means that it has impacted you very deeply. I wish that Professor Paush can live longer and cherish each and every ounce of his life with his three kids and wife. The key is to be alive not just live. You are 76 minutes away from being the master of your own happiness. Life’s best education is a click away
