Once When Pablo Picasso, the world renowned painter, was in a restaurant, a young beautiful lady approached and asked if he could draw her portrait on a napkin in one minute.
‘In one minute?’ Picasso confirmed.
‘Yes, in one minute, they say you are the greatest painter in the world, prove yourself.’
Picasso understood that the lady was provoking him. He asked her to be seated. Took out a napkin and made a portrait of the lady in 30 seconds. The lady could not believe her eyes. The painting looked like a photograph of hers, so perfect. She went to him with her wallet and asked, ‘how much?’
‘One million.’ Said Picasso.
‘One million!’ The lady was shocked. ‘But you worked for just thirty seconds, how can you demand so much?’
Picasso smiled and said, ‘Madam, I did it in thirty seconds… but you need to know that I spent the last thirty years of my life learning to do it.’
We are not sure how reliable the story of Picasso is. But the message is clear: nobody is going to become anything one fine day; we are all becoming what we set out to become. In short it is a process. Sachin Tendulkar did not become a legendary batsman on a fine day. He had to sweat his blood for years. It’s true with Muhammad Ali, Mahatma Gandhi, any legend you name.
