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".

A Visit to Orphanage and Old-Age home

Mere words won't be able to do justice to describe the kind of majestic experience which we had on that eventful day. A school trip is always a memorable one, but when it is to such a pious place, than it gets all the more interesting. To be honest, we went off from school in a picnic mode. We were all so excited and pumped up. We were sitting in the buses and there were mimicries being done and songs being sung.

Learning From Nature

The civilisation is trying to destroy it,
But for our children, we've got to preserve it.
The lush green grassland uplifts our mood,
We owe to it a lot as it provides us with nutritious food,
And helps to replenish water with its phenomenon called rain,
Equanimity is the thing which it helps us to maintain.
It rises above discrimination, giving plenty to all,
We humans can learn from it who cheer from others' fall.
Inspiring it is, service is its legacy,
Will we ever shed our ignorance and reach out to the nature ? Well, hopefully!

The last two words of this poem always ignites a sense of optimism within me that one day we will be able to comprehend the true value of nature rather than hurting it when it pleads for mercy; that one day we will take a moment to appreciate the beauty of the rainbow and the serenity of the sunrise ascending gently above the horizon rather than turning our backs onto it, missing out those small moments which really constitute a happy life.

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…
