How does the intrepid flow of time couple with the pressure of its impregnable passing influence us?
It makes us realise the futility of our presence and thus awakens an innate desire rooted deep within us to attain fulfilment. Ushering us towards a new adventure, Putting us onto the path to bring about change in our being, and making us aware of what we need to hold on to and let go of.

This adventure of evolution cannot be undertaken without the conscious choice to transform ourselves.

Transform implies a major change in form, nature or function.

It is an undertaking that stems from our desire to become anew.
It is the realisation that one can not only dream of a better tomorrow,
but paint it into reality as well.

It is setting sights and taking action to render reality as per our vision.


Painting our dreams into reality is a possibility accomplished only with hustle being inculcated in the fibre of our being, as then progress becomes an imminent reality.

It aids us as we venture forth into the adventure of attaining our aspirations and inert desires.

“Knowing yourself is the beginning of all wisdom.” -Aristotle.

The process of introspection involves looking inward to examine one’s own thoughts and emotions. It isn’t simply knowing, it is understanding oneself and that makes all the difference.

To understand oneself is to silence the chaos and find peace in our being, it is only through a careful understanding of ourselves do we venture onto this path of betterment.


When we plant a seed, for it to blossom into a sapling, care and nourishment are vital.
Similarly, while the path of introspection unearths qualities, hidden inwards,
fruition can only be attained through our abilities being nurtured.

Transforming into a better self doesn’t just mean discarding the qualities which hinder our growth, it also means nurturing the ones which put us further on the path to betterment.

C- Create:

“The desire to create is one of the deepest yearnings of the human soul.”

Creativity or creation has a unique approach to making us humans understand our niche. It encompasses a well-defined equilibrium of thoughtfulness, imagination and balance in general.

Shattering the societal mould through the influx of our creativity can be done by nurturing the fruits of our thoughts, that is, introspection. Our thoughts lead to a conscious transformation of ourselves, which can only be attained through the hustle we undertake.

So lets T.H.I.N.C to evolve to build a better tomorrow than the today we behold!
To reach the limits untouched and the paths undiscovered.
