Every morning I have two choices; continue to sleep with my dreams or wake up & chase them!
For Ajay, life was definitely the latter. On the 3rd of September 2018, he set foot in the Repos office for the first time.
As Repos tradition goes, there were fun activities planned for new joinings and a prank was played on him where we convinced him that the door which spelt ‘POSITIVITY’ was a door to a room that was a sacred resting place for everyone in the office. Ajay didn’t know what to expect when opening the door, but he never expected that we were talking about the washroom. A fun start to an evergreen journey, he still remembers the warm welcome he received that day.
Being a Reposian, dreaming is in your DNA. Ajay is a dreamer with a relentless work ethic and the ability to get things done. A Bollywood dialogue that would suit him is “Ek baar maine commitment kardi toh phir mein apne aap ki bhi nahi sunta.”
Over the years he made countless memories with the team. One occasion that sticks out to be very special for him was during Diwali. All the preparations were going on for the festivities. Ajay was at a client location and his plan was to come back to the city in time for the celebration. Due to circumstances, an urgent meeting with a client arose because of which he had to cancel his trip back and head to Jodhpur. Although he wasn’t physically present with everyone else during the Diwali bash, he vividly recalls the jubilant celebration that we had along with him on a video call. “Being so far away from everyone, yet being so close is one of my fondest memories with the team. At this point, the team has truly become my family.”
Ever since Ajay came back to India after working a while in Tanzania, he always dreamt of buying a fabulous car. After many such incidents of working hard with the team round the clock and enduring sleepless nights, the model of the car which Ajay wanted, had finally launched in India. His patience had paid off and he finally bought it.
It was not just a moment where he fulfilled one of his dreams, it was that point in time where he started living it!
Chasing a dream until it becomes a part of your reality is not an easy transformation. It requires relentless dedication, an unshakable belief and the power of consistent execution.
Belief in your potential and in the possibility of your dreams. Everyone has dreams, but it is those who dare to chase them who truly experience life to the fullest.
When asked why people shouldn’t stop dreaming, Ajay replied, “If you don’t have a dream, then what are you living for? Having something to work towards is what gives meaning to our lives. It is what pushes our limits and makes us go beyond our own expectations! It is what makes us capable of achieving feats that only existed in our imagination.”
If dreams are a representation of possibilities, and dreams are endless, then the potential for humans to achieve spectacular milestones is definitely limitless.
Ajay’s next dream is currently a secret to all of us. Only time will tell us what he is working towards now.
The important aspect to remember here is not just that of having a dream but also working towards it.
And to those who dare to chase their dreams, greatness shall arrive!
