Today I Faced Rejection

Well, after reading so many highly inspirational and power-packed articles of mine, many of my reader are saying that I have no idea what failure looks like and that's the reason why I say it without any hesitation that one should get up after experiencing a failure.
 Well guys, I don't think that I will ever have a second thought about the things which I have said in my blog posts. What do you think, that I am this esoteric, god-like thing who never faces any challenges and am here to preach others? Well, sorry to say, but, you got it wrong.
I am a person who has failed more times than I could even remember. I am a person who gets rejected and is left heartbroken very often. I have my own set of personal problems to deal with. But you why I still write these positive articles to you all guys? Its because it gives me a ray of hope. My heart says that if you are good enough to preach others, than you are also bold enough to tackle your own problems.
Let me share with you all this incident which happened to me this morning. Two days back, I had submitted an article to the addicted2success website hoping that I will be selected and could see my article being posted there. I had literally poured my heart out to the content of the material and left no stone unturned to make that, one of my magnum opus. I waited one full day yesterday, but I didn't get their e-mail. Today I got it and was saddened to know that it got rejected simply because the title of my article seemed to be matching someone else's.
I actually had never thought of checking on that website to know whether such a title was there or not. For a few minutes, I felt sad, but I soon picked myself up and went back to the grind. I am starting to write again, this would hopefully be better than the previous one. So guys, all I want to say is that never lose hope. Fall down 7 times, get up 8. If  I can do it, then I know you can definitely overcome absolutely anything.

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 …
