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.

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…
