About

Passion:

I have attempted to answer the ‘Passion’ question couple of times and have now come to realise that I can only answer this in two sections, because life itself is built up of many aspect its best to divide into the following:

Passion in Life: Find happiness through intellectual, academic exploration and self realisation and to pass on the happiness to everyone including the stranger(s) I walk past.

Career: To be known by my work long after I have gone.  To inspire the future by virtue of successful academic studies and developments through to leading successful entrepreneur venture, above all to share the wealth both material and internal spiritual realisation.

My Personality:

Writing about me or about my personality is never easy and never has been, and honestly I have tried putting it off but then I want my readers to know who I am – so for now this is working progress and I intend to bring a better structure to this section but I will give you some insight about my Personality.

This is what you need to know about me.  My identity shall remain hidden since this blog is to mirror and voice my views or opinions on many aspects of my life and experiences including many topics.  Along the way I may piss some people off and I don’t want that anger finding its way back to me, I will touch up on this a little further on.  What I can tell you is that I am an IT professional working in the banking industry in the UK and have been working in a same field ever since I left University my Masters graduation.  I have other interests, which I do not wish to mention here, but lets put it this way, if I can pull them off with my profession then it’s a BIG DEAL indeed.

Pull it off is exactly what I do.  If you have ever seen or read ‘Into the Wild’ then you will know me better.  I challenge everything and do not accept it on face value only and I do not join the rat race unless I have no other option but continue to seek alternative routes.  I was born and bred in UK and I’m fortunate to be part of an empire which has achieved so much in history.  Many people who know me agree that I have my thinking cap on all the time.  For me this is normal and nothing new, since the first and most important step of any idea, creation, venture or solution is ‘thinking’ – this I do all the time (even when I’m sleeping).

Since childhood I have thought and done things different from normal kids and now into my late 20’s I find myself in the same situation.  As a kid I use to find myself doing allot more daily than other kids, I’d run an extra lap around the field when other kids just managed one, I’d get selected first by the sports captain for all sports activities including ones that represented our school, then college and now University, I’d get nominated by year head teacher to help out during parents evening and to answer questions from parents, I’d get nominated to be part of a school plays, fund raising school charities and so on.  Now in my early 20’s nothing has changed, I still get nominated to lead presentations on banking and finance, I still get friends seeking advice from me on all sort of things and in things which I have no experience in which case I use logic and common sense.  The people around me assume now that I am successful but for me, I think I have only achieved 10% of my true potential.  In life I take very calculated risks and like to be in control of the outcome.

There are two things about me that will never change throughout my life – the first is participating in all sports activities no matter what it is – if you offer me a game I will take you up on it.  I truly believe I am an all rounder cricket, football, tennis, snooker, badminton and so on.  The second is the hunger to succeed and become a successful entrepreneur – as a child I was once told ‘Don’t work harder just work smarter’ and that sentence has just been imprinted into my mind.  My mind churns and chucks out so many ideas on a weekly basis that I have no choice but to write these down into my idea book which incidentally is getting bigger week by week – then conduct research on the idea and if feasible and the environment is ready for such innovative idea then raise interests amongst close associates to follow this through, and if the environment is not ready then keep it close to my heart and wait for the right moment then unleash it.  If the same idea has already been attempted or live then I wait for them to have a good bash at it first, I stay on the sideline look and learn from their mistakes then when I’m ready I do the same but without making the same mistakes.

Person to Become:

I am always being told that I’m too busy, over ambitious, over stretched and have too much on my plate and I think too much and totally unpredictable – my reply is that ‘your soul will never be burdened no more than what you can handle’ – something I was told by a Muslim and find it to be so true.  I also stress to people ‘stay under the radar with your affairs and you will succeed’ this is taught by my father.  I’m not loud and never in your face but rather the last to put his hand up and the last to answer a question – but there is one poem by Rudyard Kipling which tells you what I am and what I want to become:

IF you can keep your head when all about you
Are losing theirs and blaming it on you,
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,
But make allowance for their doubting too;
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
Or being lied about, don’t deal in lies,
Or being hated, don’t give way to hating,
And yet don’t look too good, nor talk too wise:

If you can dream – and not make dreams your master;
If you can think – and not make thoughts your aim;
If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster
And treat those two impostors just the same;
If you can bear to hear the truth you’ve spoken
Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken,
And stoop and build ‘em up with worn-out tools:

If you can make one heap of all your winnings
And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss,
And lose, and start again at your beginnings
And never breathe a word about your loss;
If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew
To serve your turn long after they are gone,
And so hold on when there is nothing in you
Except the Will which says to them: ‘Hold on!’

If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,
‘ Or walk with Kings – nor lose the common touch,
if neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you,
If all men count with you, but none too much;
If you can fill the unforgiving minute
With sixty seconds’ worth of distance run,
Yours is the Earth and everything that’s in it,
And – which is more – you’ll be a Man, my son!

This Blog

Purpose: My mission is to voice and share my opinions/views on the world that we live in, to provide a platform for me to record and let you know what I think of stuff.  I know there will be some who agree and some who disagree and the good news for both types is that you can engage with me and let me know what you think.  I will always try to avoid offending people.  Sometimes I will succeed, sometimes my emotions get the better of me, especially when I discuss topics that effect us all like war, political changes, economical failures, so if any offence was taken, none was meant.

Audience: My targeted audience are Humans – if you think you are a human the last time you checked then welcome, if you are unsure but still possess thinking skills and ability then you too are welcome.  I guess the simple way to put it is ‘Everyone is Welcome’.

    1. Hi Minerva,

      Indeed, after all you are reading a ‘About Me’ page – and that is the idea behind it.

      I figured (from personal experience on visiting other blogs) that about me page should allow a reader to connect with the Author and understand the person and the whole environment they live in. Knowing the author makes the blog more engaging where the readers can connect and relate to. You will rarely find a blog with the ‘About Me’ page more than few lines – which doesn’t do justice to the Author.

      Your response is the type of reaction I intend to provoke. I guess it has worked. Thanks for your comment and welcome.

  1. Hi, I absolutely loved your passions about life and career. I could have totally written that, except I couldn’t have penned it so beautifully.

    Its a shame you want to keep your identity a secret. Makes everything much more real for the reader. But that’s just how I feel. 🙂

    Looking forward to reading more.

      Thanks a million for your comment and I’m glad to read you enjoyed and can relate my passion. After all passion is the fuel to success.

      I agree revealing my ID ups the level of reality but my reality is that I stay under the radar by choice – I love helping people, charities, etc, anonymously be it financially or not – The satisfaction I get is unbelievable.

      Thank you for sharing your feelings – all is welcome.

    1. Humayun – I’m happy you find my blog and content useful and I would be happy to help in anyway I can. Normally I would write more blog posts but right now I’m fighting to find enough time to write and second I rather quality of quantity.

      I hope my situation changes and I find more time to write – but I guess this is the real challenge and a challenge which I eager to accept.

  2. hey okay since u said every body is welcome so i m here too.. which category by ur definition of humans i dont want to exhaust myself on that.. u may decide or leave it for now. so nice blog.. n intriguing about me page 🙂

    1. aaww cool – I’ve achieved my first ‘Salute’ – bloody awesome and thank you.

      Judging you by your blog (everyone should visit its fantastic) I don’t think your lazy a** but rather finding the right moment to launch yourself.

      The secret is ‘don’t work harder just work smarter’ and once you get into the habit of thinking smart – life just becomes so easy ‘like a walk in the park’.

  3. A nice blog and a highly impressive intro. Looking forward to more interesting and inspiring stuff from you. Will be visiting the blog regularly now. Add one more to your readers list 🙂

  4. Kudos to you for not only voicing your opinions but having educated opinions with research to back it up. I admire you. I am not well versed in politics and I certainly couldn’t take a stand on things the way you do.

    Great blog. I look forward to reading – and learning – more.

    1. Thank you and welcome to my blog (for the the kind words)

      For decades, elite politicians have made it impossible for people (like me and you) not to have their own voice or to step into politics. It was normal to expect a Politician to have come from a well privilliaged and wealthy family. With the explosion of mediums on the Internet such as blogs, facebook, twitter the rules of the game (politics) have changed. Anyone can have their say, make their point and to think different. The hardest part of all this is ‘making a start’ – once you have done this then no one is stopping you.
