No matter what you do, what you like and where you live, none of it will be worth it if you can’t answer this one question positively… Is your life Fantastico or not?

These are the words said by a great man, who is also the author of this blog. Well, maybe not great, but above average… Or maybe not… You know what? Let’s not get into the technicalities, shall we?

Before I tell you more, let me give the credits to the all new Tata Zica for the word fantastico, which is on its way to become my second favorite word after Awesome, much like the Zica which is my second favorite car right now!  (The first one will always be bat-mobile, right?)

So what is fantastico? Well, in terms of cars, it is most definitely an amazing and confident exterior, great mileage, a powerful engine, high tech specs and a spacious design… something the Zica is all about. And the analogy of all this with us humans is uncanny.

Think about it. Don’t we all need it? A confident exterior; so that all those meetings you go to, all those presentations you give and the tests you take, you ace them all. Was that possible without confidence?

A great mileage; because if you don’t have the energy to go on all day without getting tired, you’re facing fatigue, which is not at all good for you or your body.

A powerful engine; well, you do need strength to face the tough competition this world gives you in order for you to succeed.

High tech; because no matter who you are, it’s your smart phone that is going to give you the advantage you never had.

And a spacious design… Well I got nothing here, but you get the drift.

My point is that there’s just so much one can do to make the lives of himself and others around him, awesome. And if your life is awesome, you are Fantastico, isn’t it?

Being fantastico is not just about having great things in your life; it’s about being able to live your life the way you want. It’s about being in a state where nothing can disturb the happiness that you have. It’s not about having everything; it’s about making the best use of what you have.

I’d end this with a quote from a very famous movie that Bollywood gave us, 3 idiots, “Don’t chase success, chase excellence, success will automatically follow you”, and it stands true for being fantastico too; you don’t have to put an effort to be fantastico, you just need to live your life your way and your life will be Fantastico before you know it. Don’t trust me? Try it yourself. Goodluck! J
