Creators and Consumers

There are only two kinds of people in this world – Creators and Consumers. All of us oscillate between these two roles every single day and every single moment, with choice always with us, to select the role. It is very important for us in life, to expose ourselves to opportunities where we take the role of ‘creating’ than mere ‘consuming’. The role of a consumer is akin to the act of receiving (easy) whereas the role of creator is congruent to the role of giving (difficult). The more you continue to formulate yourselves into the role of receiving, the more you lose the opportunity of ‘doing’ or ‘creating’. Try recalling every other incident in your past life, when you performed an act of creating, i.e. giving, and I am sure you would treasure this in your memory, howsoever old it may be. Not many such memories of consuming, i.e. receiving would be an easy memory.

Every act of creating (giving) involves sacrifice and hard work – hence has an innate passion associated with it. It is like allowing a part of your body (or soul) to be shared as an element of commitment with a clear purpose. This in turn, gives the giver a sense of happiness and fulfillment and eventually self- actualization. Effort always leads to results. If we try to look around ourselves in our society (or at our country, at large), we would notice that every act that produced noticeable results or success, would have an act of deep effort (creating) associated with it. Every Champion was once a contender that refused to Give Up. Inspiration breeds such results. Identifying an Idol to follow, would be an easiest way to enable such aspiration. As is said, in an old adage…Where there is a will, there is way !

He who created us, also relished the joy of giving. Hence, God is called the Creator.
