Create, Innovate, Team Up!!!
These 3 words and the social media, together, have positively changed the dynamics of ‘real in the reel‘ for quite some time now. I remember being a kid, watching the larger-than-life movies, questioning myself that is it really possible? The same question popped up in my mind when the hero performed an unbelievable action stunt or when an experiment in the lab of an estranged
mad ambitious scientist resulted in mutation, hence, creating a strange creature #the-ultimate-villain. Haha!!
Not that I didn’t believe any of it as a kid, I just craved for some reality. Now, you might argue that we still had the News Channels showing the daily news, real events, etc.. True but was it enough to make us aware of the real lives(and events) of millions of people around the world, may be it was. But not for me, never for me. I always wondered if its OK to think beyond boundaries, to take things as they come, to break barriers and think free. I kept questioning myself until one day, when I met my partner in crime – the ‘Mr.’ in my life.
As I started to get to know Rahul and his views, I was reminded of not only my questions and the urge for reality but it made me believe that there are more people like me. Every time we shared our opinions regarding various topics, be it our love for science, travel, music, career or ambitions in life – it became a bit more clear to me every time that we are meant to ‘team up’ (as in ‘made for each other‘ – if I say it in a more poetic, movie-ish way). I was still not much aware of social media by that time, unlike Rahul. It’s funny that leave Facebook account, I didn’t even have an Email ID back then. But eventually, I did sign up for one and then came Facebook, Instagram and so on. But as we (Me and Rahul) grew together as individuals every day, read more blogs, learnt more information on google, watched more YouTube (tech/music/review) videos, traveled to different countries, talked to people, got to know different cultures and backgrounds, every day was more eye-opening for us than the one, before. We learnt to be more accepting, learnt to appreciate everything and everyone in our life, learnt to handle both, ‘the impulse and calm’, likewise.
So, coming back to the topic – the ‘Age of Social Media’ was very evident, rather relevant – it had captured the attention of everyone and we were no exception. It was a time of revolution in human history – the Age of Social Media. It comprised of anything and everything that could potentially spread a message or make a statement like blogging platforms, Reddit,YouTube, etc.. These enabled common people like you and me to share our views through blogs and videos; views related to a product or an event, tutorials related to photography, makeup or even topics like ‘how to fix a broken pipe’ or ‘how to color your black shoes white’ were addressed.
Somehow, it not only enabled people to express, it empowered them, inspired them. Of course, it also made people rich but what’s wrong in it. Just look at how things work today as compared to 15 years before. We don’t blindly buy a product because our favorite actor/actress uses it or because we have seen an advertisement about it. We read/watch the reviews of people who actually use it and I think that’s really cool. I don’t deny the fact that few use this platform for spreading fake news/creating chaos but for once, let’s just discuss the positive side of it; we have enough negativity in the world already. Today, blogging platforms, Instagram, Facebook , YouTube, etc. enable everyone to do something creative, market their own idea, start their own business, hence, empowering the masses.
Hope – Believe – Work – Achieve
These four words have summarized our life so far and will continue to do so. With this video (below), we hope to inspire everyone to not delay their dreams anymore and to just `jetsetgo´.
With this video, we also expect to get feedback from you about the facts or events in your life that motivates you. We will be making our next videos based on your that and you get the credits for that in the video. We have started an initiative so as to team up as a community; brainstorm and together, create something unbelievable. Share your thoughts in the comment section. Let’s create and innovate.
Lots of love
