This post is an inspiration from the episodes of many great people who were great “Failures” once…

Success is the most interesting, and a beautiful word that everyone wants to have in their book called  LIFE again and again.

Failure is a word, which most of us want to rub away or at least dont want to write in our book called LIFE.

Success rather brings lots of enthusiasm, great amount of power, morale and royalty. We feel like we are on the top of a mountain playing with clouds. Failure brings us into despair, leads us to utter dejection, ruins us, shatters us and shows us what it means to live in a hell.

Many people feel that failures should not be a part of their life and that it should be failure free life. Some people fight with their failures, and after having fought enough they escape paving their way into some other alternative. Some people “QUIT” after fighting from failures, and end their life.Some people cry cry and cry in the ocean of sadness and get used to it.

“BUT”


A WINNER IS ONE WHO “READS HIS FAILURES” AND “RUNS TOWARDS HIS LIFE”

This lady was dismissed from her drama school, because her teachers criticized her that she was very shy in acting, and cant get her foot ahead for good acting, and she was devoid of good acting skills.

She read her failures and went on to become an All time great American comedienne, film, television, radio actress, and holds a special identity for having one of the most longest careers in Hollywood. Shes “Lucille Ball”


The following rock band was turned down, it was forced to shut down, as it has a poor quality of sound output, and the guitars they used were not impressive and outdated.

This boy was dropped from his school basket ball team, as he was not able to put the ball in the basket. He locked himself in a room, cried cried and cried  in utter despair. He was criticized badly by his team members by not allowing him to pass on the ball during matches. He was injured several times and missed 64 straight matches. He couldn’t throw the ball into the basket in many final matches.

He read from his failures, went on with his life and won 40 awards in the world of NBA(National Basketball Association), won 2 olympic gold medals, and now is a LEGEND in the world of basket ball.

He is Michael Jordan ( A Basketball Legend)


This boy was exclaimed as “STUPID TO LEARN ANYTHING”, and can never ever be successful in his life by his teacher. He later on emerged as the “Godfather of Light”, he gave the sunshine to everyone. He failed 999 times while in the process of inventing THE BULB. He succeeded the 1000th time. He is THOMAS ALVA EDISON( The man who invented bulb)

This guy was fired from a newspaper agency, because he HAS NO IMAGINATION AND CANNOT THINK ON HIS OWN.He went on to become the ALL TIME BEST-CREATIVE DIRECTORS OF THE WORLD. He is SIR WALT DISNEY (Creator of the cartoon- Disney World.


His Fiancee expired, He failed in business for 2 times, he lost in elections for 8 times, he had a serious nervous breakdown, he was let down completely by failures, still he went on his way to become THE PRESIDENT OF UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.

He is Sir Abraham Lincoln

Failures are a chance to learn and transform ourselves. Failures squeeze us and expose us neat and clean like a washing machine.

AND THEY SAY

IF YOU WANT SUCCESS DESPERATELY, YOU HAVE TO FAIL MISERABLY….IF YOU HAVE NEVER FAILED—YOU HAVE NEVER LIVED

CrEaTiViTy. One of the most misunderstood words in the history of lexicography.CrEaTiViTy is simply inventing some psychological constructs of our own, the art of turning ideas into reality.People in the past used to believe that CrEaTiViTy is really far away from the myths of reality and natural thoughts of people. They used to believe that CrEaTiViTy to people came from a distant noble source and is only gifted to some people, And the Greeks called these “some people” as DAEMONS.The Romans exclaimed them as “GENIUS”.

But as days passed on, Man was kept in the center of universe above all gods and rational humanism  came into practice.Then it became easy for people to absorb that being creative is not a big deal.

Creativity is not a big task, its not like asking someone to swallow the sun.it just comes from our thoughts. Say, when you are walking alongside a seashore, the winsome sounds of waves, the buzz of the breeze, the flutter-flatter of the flies, or the silent sky, when all these wonderment’s are glimpsed for a moment,anything could bring out extraordinary thoughts out of the most exquisite part portion of your life.When asked whats creativity, my brother says  “its like when someone asks you to explain to the students that a COW HAS FOUR LEGS..RATHER THAN SHOUTING AND TELLING THEM THAT A COW HAS FOUR LEGS…U SHOULD DRAW THE PICTURE OF A COW AND ASK THE STUDENTS TO COUNT HOW MANY LEGS IT HAS”

The sense of creativity shows you in enlarged mirror. We STAY SPECIAL among many. Its like “when you are like a drop of water, in a sea/ocean, your identity is rattled  and shattled, you are with similar kind of countless water drops, which are together known as a sea/ocean. BUT when the same drop of water is on a lotus petal, it is regarded as a waterdrop because it shines and brings beauty to the lotus”. Being Creative is the same.

Creativity is of two types: One of them evolves out of conscientious thoughts which generates a different world and characters which depict their creativity. Certain advertisements follow this:

SOME OF THE COMPANIES LISTED BELOW with their smart and clever utilization of things around them excavated creativity, and thus became popular.Adopting someones techniques into yours and combining both and presenting could also be creativity, its just creating a typical impression on others so that they could say a big “WOW”.

So DONT RE-INVENT THE WHEEL, DONT FOLLOW THE MOB, BE CREATIVE AND DARE TO DIFFER FROM OTHERS

Creativity cant be learnt directly, it shld be initially adopted, then can be learned. If u come out of your senses for some time being and throw it on things around u, books around u, nature around u, you could land up in the world of CREATIONISTS. Its just being someone different from others. So just think about it….








It was in the year 2003, when I was squandering in Dadar railway station(Mumbai) to board a local train along with my parents. We were to hold on to our patience for a pretty good amount of time as the ticket booking queue was very long as a never ending stream. We sat down on the steps near the pavement. That was for the first time I’ve visited the most wealthiest city in India. The station was very busy, with people moving Helter- Skelter in the path where their destiny is leading them to.

There was a massive crowd of beggars sitting in a line as series of ducklings moving on a mission.Some of them were without proper clothes, some with torn ones, some with unusual behavior, some crying relentlessly,some cursing the passers by, some fighting among themselves for bucks.

Suddenly, there was feast for my eyes. My eyes took my sight over to a 6 feet tall guy with a gentlemen overcoat. He was walking as if he was the brand ambassador of the term called ROYALTY.He was wearing a dazzling detective hat. A plentiful of papers shrugged into his pocket seemed like jumping out of it, some cap-less pens were peeping sadly through his pocket. He was looking around people as if they’ve prosecuted illegally into his farm land.He had a nicely combed hair. He looked like an old  lazy lethargic  & a boring professor

He sat down on the pavement, unbuttoned his coat,removed his hat, kept it in front of him upside down, suddenly, He’s a BEGGAR. To my surprise, I saw his coat was completely torn inside and he started begging. All his fellow beggars shouted habitual and customary slogans while begging-few showing their children, half cut legs, hands, and most of them narrating their family drama.

This unique beggar seemed not interested in their tactics and started his own. He was looking at selected people and started shouting ” Allah, sabka bhalai karega”..forward 10 minutes… he started saying “Bhagwan, aapka bhalai karega…bhagwan aapka bhalai karega”…and after a moment he changed his slang and started saying “May lord jesus, save u from all your problems”. He started shouting slogans at some selected people even though they didn’t care for him. He started blessing people for no reason. And instead of pleading the people for money he started blessing them. Initially he was cared by no one, but later on, people came up to him and put coins into his not so hesitating hat. The traffic of his donors became increasingly more and more as time passed on.He played royally with the”THEIST SENTIMENT“of people and made money.And alas..!, when he found that his hat was filled, he poured all the clinging coins into his pouch, wore his coat back, put on his hat, and then slowly walked away……

I Always Wanted to be….

“When i grow up, I would become a Doctor…Engineer..Police…IAS,…IPS.” these are the words which are exclaimed by us when we are very tiny and small, twingling our tounges up and down happily. We neither know what the profession is, nor what we are going to do, but still we say them.

Most of us in our lives are being controlled by many factors around us.“WE LIVE THE LIFE OF A PERSON, THAT WE WERE TOLD”. We lack individuality. We lack that stubborn enthusiasm of taking our own choosen path. We find ourselves impotent of doing so. We do certain things in our life because someone said it suits us, and that it has more opportunities. We never go by our own choosen way.

MY chemistry sir “Mr.Kaushal” always used to say “ALL ARE BORN WITH EQUAL INTELLIGENCE..THE ONLY THING THAT MATTERS IS, HOW THEY USE IT”. As far as i believe, every one has a unique gift given to them. But many factors around us hinder it from uncovering it. A true conqueror is one, who knows what it is, and uses it effectively to make a contribution to the world.

The most unfortunate thing is that we really dont know what our passion is upto some point of time in our life. BUT A DAY COMES IN OUR LIFE WHEN SITUATIONS BECOME CLOUDY. TIME RUNS AWAY LIKE A BIRD AND UNDER THE REALM OF A DRYING SUN, WE NEED TO DECIDE OUR FATE, WHICH MAKES US READY FOR THE SO CALLED JOURNEY CALLED “LIFE”. This is more or less a point of realization in one’s life.

The one who understands himself and follows his passion from this “point of realization” enjoys Superhuman SpLendour and says “LIFE IS A GAME, LETS PLAY”…and the one who still gets crubbed with others rules and cant follow his passion ,gets into Mundane Debris and says “LIFE IS A COMPROMISE”

“There’s only one damn person in this entire world who knows everything about you…and its YOU. No one else can make it out.You are the only person who knows your strengths and weakness. When any crucial situation welcomes us and when there are many options before us, we ask many people around us to suggest a suitable option and become a prey to their decision.The most unfortunate thing here is that we dont ask ourselves. If we could ask ourselves, pick up the best option at which we think we can excel, no one can stop us. “GREAT DANCERS ARE GREAT NOT GREAT BECAUSE OF THEIR DANCE, THEY ARE GREAT BECAUSE OF THEIR PASSION”

“I dropped the word career from my life at the age of 24. Careers are constricting, i just went away where the wind blew, i call my life as an adventure”..These are words of BILL GATES.
BILL GATES- A young lad inspite of being dropped away from school, could leave his ego follow his passion and interest for computers and could become of the most admired entrepreneurs of the world.

Mohan das Karam Chand Gandhi, A law student from london, left all his ego ,educational degree, monetary pleasures, and strived towards his passion and went into DESPAIR DARKNESS to pull people out of it, and thus became the “MOST PHENOMENAL LEADER OF THE CONTEMPORARY INDIA AND THE FATHER OF THE NATION”

There are some things that money cant buy, the most important of all is happiness. One becomes happy, when he truly does what he always wanted to do. With happiness you can earn money, but with money you cant buy happiness.

On contrary, if we always live for others and always follow others paths, and listen and act accordingly to their ideas and ideologies,nothing hampers our growth, life goes on as it is. There comes a time when we become old and frail, and have lived enough of life, and then a thought always bothers us. We do everything for others, we give a great life to our loved ones, we give money to our children, we make our parents happy, BUT, we could do nothing for ourselves, we couldnt do, what we have always wanted to do. THIS LIFE IS OURS…AND WE HAVE LIVED IT FOR OTHERS satisfying ourselves for others needs.

Even if you realise your passion at this point of time,and think of following your passion.. even god cant save u or make you to follow your passion because “YOU CANNOT GO INTO THE PAST, AS LIFE HAS NO REPLAY, YOU CANT DO IT IN FUTURE AS U HAVE NOT MUCH OF LIFE LEFT”

Realise what you want, understand your passion, follow it and ENJOY THE PLEASURE OF DOING, WHAT YOU HAVE ALWAYS WANTED TO DO. All cannot become BILL GATES or GANDHIJI’S, but following your passion and thereby succeeding makes you a KING for yourself.
