The Adventure of Unknown

The Adventure of Unknown

You will notice a connection among these:

1. Why gambling excites?
2. Why people go on vacations?
3. Why suspense stories sell more than self-help books?
4. Why a movie is not as interesting the second time?
5. Why are the boys crazy about sports?

And that connection is- Unknown excites everyone.

Life is boring if you know everything that’s going to take place. It’s no different than driving to work using the same route everyday. What keeps us glued to the sports is the twist and turn it brings every second.

A part in each one of us loves adventure. We want to explore the unexplored. We want to see the places we have never been to. But, when it comes to life everyone wants to keep moving on straight line. WHY?

Unknown excites us! Unknown keeps us moving forward. Unknown pulls out the best in us. Unknown makes us more efficient. Unknown stretches us to a new level.

Assume that you are not going to lose the job, come what may, will you still be excited about bringing new ideas? Will you still be passionate about thinking out of the box? Will you still be interested in setting new standards? Some will, though most will not.

Imagine right before the interview, you are aware that you have been selected; will you still take time to go an extra mile for getting ready?

Unknown excites us! Unknown keeps us moving forward. Unknown pulls out the best in us. Unknown makes us more efficient. Unknown stretches us to a new level.

The fear of unknown always pushes us to come out of comfort zone and do something we have never tried before. The unknown factor has driven the champions to set new records, it has inspired the musicians to create a new melody and has motivated the scientists to discover a new element. To each one of us, it gives an opportunity to surpass our limitations and shine brightly.

    Very True Vivek sir. REALLY UNKNOWN , How inspiring you and your words are. The best of puzzle as you mentioned above, people who creates puzzles will never intend themself to resolve. It’s for others to who initiate and solve it as it’s unknown to them.

    So true Vivek….the UNKNOWN appeals to us like nothing else…it ignites the fire that burns and turns us into.pure gold. However I would love to hear about the flip side of it…the fear….the apprehension…does it really push us out of our comfort zone?

    • March 13, 2017 at 1:48 pm

      So well said. It’s a nice extension to the blog Semanti. Our attitude decides how we respond to fear and apprehensions. We have a choice to use them positively 🙂
