Les Brown Motivation… Powerful as it can get!

If you want something bad enough then go out and fight for it.

Work day and night for it.

Give up your time, your peace and lose sleep for it.

If all that you dream and scheme is about it

and life seems useless and worthless without it

and if you gladly sweat for it,fret for it,plan for it

and lose all your terror of the opposition for it.

And if you simply go after that thing that you want

with all of your capacity,strength and sagacity,

faith, hope, confidence and stirred toward tenacity.

If neither cold, poverty, famish or gull,

sickness, pain, body or brain

can’t keep you away from the thing that you want.

If darkness and grim you besiege and beset it

And by God you will get it.

-Les Brown

Motivational Speaker

 

Nature loves courage…

Nature loves courage. You make the commitment and nature will respond to that commitment by removing impossible obstacles. Dream the impossible dream and the world will not grind you under, it will lift you up. This is the trick. This is how magic is done. By hurling yourself into the abyss and discovering it’s a feather bed.

— Terence McKenna

Crash & Burn…

When you feel all alone
And the world has turned its back on you
Give me a moment please to tame your wild wild heart
I know you feel like the walls are closing in on you
It’s hard to find relief and people can be so cold
When darkness is upon your door and you feel like you can’t take anymore

Let me be the one you call
If you jump I’ll break your fall
Lift you up and fly away with you into the night
If you need to fall apart
I can mend a broken heart
If you need to crash then crash and burn
You’re not alone

-Savage Garden

Sometimes we’re so afraid of life , we stop living! You gotta trust someone along the way. You gotta open up…You gotta crash & burn…. And then you’ll rise back up like a falcon…Out of the ashes…. Ready to soar into the skies…Once again!…

It’s hard to stay calm when things are’nt going alright…

So I’m back home after a long tiring day at work. I feel stressed out as the day was challenging. One of those days when you just feel like screaming out of frustration.

But then another thought comes to my mind and I’ve learnt it from this particular scene from ‘Seven Pounds’. To just hang in there,not say a word out of anger and to let the day pass by in silence.

It’s hard for me to stay calm when things are not quite going my way. But I guess it requires character to be calm in the midst of trial.In real life there are 2 sportsman who I look up to alot coz of the great patience and character they showed at various instances:-

1.Andy Roddick : Losing the Wimbledon final against Roger Federer in 2009. He was so close to winning but fell short after playing the match of his life. I cant imagine how he would have felt after playing a match for close to 5 hrs and still come out a loser. Still,during the presentation he was calm and wiped his tears slowly in silence. It showed true character even in loss.He is a true winner to me!

2.Rahul Dravid: Early on in his career, he was humiliated by a cricket fan who called him a boring player who could never last in the ODI team for more than a few months. He listened to every criticism carefully without ever saying a word back in defence. When his friends felt instigated by the fan he stopped them saying that he wanted to know what the real Indian cricket fan thought about him without any biases. He did work on his weaknesses and is today the 2nd highest ODI run getter for India following Sachin Tendulkar.His career spanned close to 2 decades.

It feels good to end the day knowing that I’ve given it my all and have stayed calm till the end. I hope I continue my journey on this ‘Road less travelled’ and wish that I have alot of companions from the world over.Together we can make a difference. 🙂
