#SachchiAdvice That made a difference in my Life

Sharing is Caring !!

It is exactly 5 years back on 27th of September my journey with IT industry started. I was a fresher who wanted to spread my wings and had a dream of roaming the whole world and leave my mark in the world. Fresh from the campus after completing the engineering course, I chose to follow my dreams and stepped into the unknown far away from home. The Journey took me to Mumbai , Bangalore and Hyderabad where I spent my next 2 and half years combined making loads of friends having fun and exploring multiple cultures and places. I got a new perspective in life and learned lot by being independent. Life was full of fun and entertainment.

As they say “grass is always greener on the other side” all of my friends started looking for better opportunities  as they grew tired of being in a single firm for more than two years. I too got into the fad and started looking for greener pastures. When I told my parents about the job search, they asked me why don’t you search in Chennai and come live with us. Even though I stayed in touch with my family and friends through calls, social media on daily basis but still it felt like something was always missing. So I attended few telephonic interviews for Chennai Jobs. Still I was hesitant as my friends were searching jobs in Bangalore as it hosts various opportunities with much better pay for the technology which I specialized in. Within a week or two I got a job offer from a very big product based company in Bangalore for a sum which just took my breath away. The very next day I got a decent offer in Chennai and the work location just 15 minutes from my home. I was not sure of which way to go as one would lead me to more money and other would take me home. I called my dad and asked for advice. He told “Its your life choose whichever you like but don’t regret later that you missed an opportunity”.

All my friends advised to take the job in Bangalore as it was dream job with premium pay scale which according to them it would elevate the happiness. Money is a very powerful thing, it builds empires and breaks down kingdoms, it allows for dreams to come true and it takes others away, it makes some people happy and others completely miserable. As today the pursuit of money is almost directly linked to the pursuit of happiness, many will argue that money = happiness, I also thought to do the same.

Then I called my mom. She told “If you have got an offer in Chennai why thinking about something else, come immediately.” I could recall the voice breaking when my dad said to follow my dream even though he secretly wanted me to come home.  And later when I was going through my mail, I saw one from lifehack.org which was like a savior to me. It was about “how money cant buy you happiness and you yourself can define your happiness and it lies in satisfaction”. It just left me in deep thinking. That was the #SachchiAdvice which has shaped my life and made me what I am today.

For the past two and half years I have been staying with my family without any regrets and waking up to Bed coffee and getting breakfast, dinner and lunch on time and delivered to where I am 😛 ! I can happily say that I don’t have to wake my self anymore using the sound of alarm everyday 😛 ! Here is a little #SachchiAdvice  from my end to you which can change your life just like it did for me !!

Life is really short so instead of spending most of the time brainlessly chasing money you should start from the little things that make you happy.
