People don’t decide their future, They decide their Habits!
It was around 2 AM as the calling bell rung. I was watching “The Last Dance” in Netflix, as I heaped my attention to the standing door. Not quite the time to expect a visitor. I hit the pause button and set to open the door. “Who could it be?”, I asked myself twice before opening the door. To my surprise, it was a postman in his uniform dripping in the rain. I was bedazzled. He kept smiling there humbly and was searching into his bag. I didn’t know what to ask a postman standing at my door by 2 AM. He then took out that letter in a red envelope. “Prem from Studio A?”, he asked. “Yes”, I told and received it. I couldn’t help but wonder still about this uncanny happening. I flipped the cover and looked for the sender. “Times of the Universe” it read, and it was dated to 2050. “2050 what?” I asked out loud. “Of course Sir, this is from the future. Where else do you think people will understand the importance of letters?” he replied with a smile. And in the split second when I nodded head back and forth to the letter, he vanished. Puff! He was gone. I didn’t have the courage to head out and search for this mystery man, so I retreated and closed the door. “Must be a prank”, I said out loud and sat on the couch. But deep inside, “Can this be real?” is what the conscience told. I fervently opened the envelope, and it was a paper cutting from a newspaper titled Times of the universe. All about A and S, was the article titled on that page. I went on to read,
“We have seen Entrepreneurs, but for the first time do we see a company of Entrepreneurs. Yes, the name is Studio A, and the reputation precedes and succeeds it. Crossing 50 years, this is the first of its kind name in the world to house so many companies in the same house. Not to mention how it’s recent streak of ventures in the state of art weddings, organic farming, AI, Eco-friendly color-changing backdrops, breathtaking documentary films, mind-mapping, native food, healthcare, and more, are sprouting to set revolutionary waves. Our attempt to catch them for an interview was in vain as they are touring the Bahamas as a part of their vacation. They sent back a letter thought that reads –
‘A lot of what is being spoken of our success today roots from one simple word — HABIT. Yes, we’ve read it and written it a million times during our school days, but the moment you realize the power of it, it is transformational.
It all started from the simple exercise we took on with SPI EDGE’S Aspire, as they fueled the cultivation of habit culture. It was one day at a time, that became weeks, months, and years, and here we are, not really worrying about being there for the world’s most famous newspaper’s interview but instead doing what we want to do. Life has been one fun ride, and we continue to strive for a better world. Yes, most of us have crossed our 50s and have our Entrepreneurial ventures soaring. But we’ve stood the ground as a family. It took time, really long for this magic to happen. We keep discovering, inventing and innovating. Habits make the man. It made us what we are today. Rest assured, everything is possible. Bless you’.
Now that response sticks. It is to be noted that the Aspire program revolutionized the business scape of India, and is now on a consulting project with the UN and the NASA. And yes, few kindergarten books carry the line A for Aspire and S for Studio A. Apt it is, and stands true”
That was one-helluva-article I said. What do you say?
