Everyone Tells Us To Do, But No One Tells Us How To

By Kundan Shumsher Rana

On 26th November 2015, Sachin Timalsena, V.P. of Human Values for Peace and Prosperity, visited DWIT. He came to DWIT in hopes of providing some motivational talks to the students. Mr Timalsena completed his Bachelor level from the National College Center for Development Studies and he actively participates in several social service activities. He is also one of the leading entrepreneurs in Nepal. He is also a lead co-coordinator of the event GWR (Guinness world record for largest human national flag) and the Sadak Bhoj Karyakram (Open Road Food Program). He is also a member of the Kathmandu Cricket Association.

During his speech, he talked about his organization, the work that they do and the personal struggles that he has faced in his life. “Everyone tells you to do something, but no one tells you how doing it. This creates a lot of trouble and puts unnecessary pressure and expectations on a person.” This was the primary point he made during his speech.

He talked about the adversities he faced while organizing the GWR (Guinness world record of largest human national flag). He said, “When I had the idea of creating the largest human flag, I didn’t know what I was doing, how to do it or whether it would be a success or not. The main problems were the weather, the sponsors and the participants themselves.” He further said, “We needed 37000 people. When I put this detail in front of the potential sponsors, they laughed. They asked how we were going  to bring 37000 people in a single location.”

He told the audience how he overcame adversity and beat the odds. He encouraged the audience to stand up for what they believe in and never give in to pressure. He also said that, “To do what you do properly, you need three things. Confidence, Concentration and Clarity of Mind. With these things, nothing is out of reach.”
