Importance of Perseverance

In this era of accelerating change, overwhelming complexities and tremendous competition,one often finds it hard to keep going. There is always a battle going on within, which commences from morning, to the time one goes to sleep. When the morning alarm clock rings,the aching muscles of the body plead in an unanimous voice, saying that it is too dark,too early to get up, and asks to go back to the dreamland,pretending not to hear the the command of the brain,which says that there was a reason you set the alarm at the first place. Even in school, one feels intimidated seeing the efforts one has to put in to get to the top,and more importantly,to remain there, since in academics, it doesn't take time to plunge from sky high to rock-bottom.

When one is going through a rough patch, when difficulties and obstacles seem to be ubiquitous,the only reliable partner is perseverance. It is a guiding light which helps a person to get from where he is, to where he wants to be. Faith, passion, efforts and sweat are it's ingredients, success is the product. Perseverance is a tool which stimulates the fear of mediocrity and the hunger for excellence. In life,we should acknowledge the fact that it would be insane to expect someone to hand our dream in a golden plate, saying 'here's your dream manifested'. One has to strive,hustle and fight one's way through the hurdles of life in order to emerge as victorious,and that's exactly perseverance is all about. Let me end by quoting Robin Sharma,"Starting strong is good,finishing strong is EPIC".

The 2X3X Mindset

Does the title seems to be a bit abstruse. Let me break it down for you. This is something which I learned a few moths ago and guess what? It is doing wonders in my life! This principle states that if you want to double your income and your impact in your organisation, then you must triple your investment in your self-development. 

You can't be progressing in your career if you are not willing to work on yourself and strive to be a better version of yourself with each passing day. What you'll have 2 years from now, 5 years from now,10 years from now solely depends on what you become and what are the things which you are willing to sacrifice today.

 Your income hardly exceeds your self worth and once you acknowledge this very fact, you'll start realising that there is a very urgent need to start learning new skills and be very competitive.

There are innumerable things which are out there in the world which can aide you reach your desired position. Being a bibliophile, I strong…

Pablo Picasso And The Lady

Once, one of the greatest painters of all times, Pablo Picasso was in a market place. A lady saw him and said 'Mr Picasso, it's great to see you. I am a big fan of yours'. He said 'Nice to meet you'.The lady pulled out a piece of paper and a pencil and she said 'Mr Picasso, can you do a bit of art for me? Can you do a bit of drawing for me'? She asked in a voice which didn't seem to take a No for an answer. Picasso said 'absolutely'.

 He quickly drew something and gave it to her. The lady looked at the drawing and she certainly was impressed by his art 'Oh Picasso, fantastic. This the best piece of drawing I've ever had', the lady said. After saying that, she starts walking away. Picasso called her and said 'Ah! my dear lady, that will be a million dollars.' The lady, obviously shell- shocked by that statement looked at him and said 'Picasso. A million dollars? It took you just 30 seconds to do that'. He said 'My d…

Don't Quit- Poem

Since last few days I've been listening to various poems by the budding poets around the globe and enjoyed most of them. But then I came across this one which was so serene and motivating, that I really couldn't resist myself from sharing it with you guys. It somewhat goes like this:

When things go wrong as they sometimes will When the road you're trudging seems all uphill When the funds are low and the debts are high And you want to smile, but you have to sigh. When care is pressing you down a bit,  Rest, if you must, but don't you quit. Life is queer with it's twists and turns, As everyone of us sometimes learns And many a failure turns about, When he might have won had he stuck it out; Don't give up though the pace seems low You may succeed with another blow Often the gold is nearer than, It seems to be a faint and faltering man. Often the struggler has given up When he might have captured the victor's cup And he learnt too late when the night slipped down, How close he …
