On Sucess & Failure..

"I've missed more than 9000 shots in my career. I've lost almost 300 games. 26 times, I've been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I've failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed."

That's Michael Jordan on success and failure.. Statictics apart, it shows how nothing is inconquerable to the human spirit. But to keep that flame of desire and passion burning bright, it takes a lot of mental toughness.. But the incentives of hard-earned success far outweigh the numerous failures that strike us down as we work our way through!

Starting Afresh!

"Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could; some blunders and absurdities have crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; you shall begin it serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense. "

One of my favourites.. The importance of letting go of one's past, purging one's mind of all negativities and making a fresh beginning cannot be overstated. It's sometimes the simplest medicine to all our worries.. Just that it's one pill that's not very easy to swallow :-)


Aaah.. It's good to be back! It's been a long time since my last post.. Was just wondering what to write next all this while.. Out came the philosopher in me..
