Clap For Yourself…!

You’ve gone through many stages and phases in life. Some of those phases were good and others disgusting moments. But in all of these periods, you didn’t lose your sanity. You pushed and pushed even harder. And you passed through the different challenges without losing your mind.

Well, clap for yourself. You did well. Problems are a part of humanity, which can extinguish happiness from one’s life. But knowing that human frailty is part of existence makes it easier to deal with these dark moments of existence.  Continue reading

A Letter To Self…

Dear Self,

Good Morning! As you wake up today, hazy and disoriented, there are a few things I’d like us to talk about. But first, go get a cup of tea as you squint at the sunlight. So, you’d gradually become aware of yourself. I want you to come to the reality of this frank talk we’d hold in a bit.

Okay. How do you feel today? “I feel good and I’m settling into the day despite the fact that the cloud is all grey and the sky is teary”. Well, you have no choice but to feel good inspite of glaring challenges and the mad drama unfolding everywhere in the world. Continue reading

The Entrepreneur’s Credo!

I do not choose to be a common man,
It is my right to be uncommon … if I can,
I seek opportunity …, not security.
I do not wish to be a kept citizen.
Humbled and dulled by having the
State look after me.
I want to take the calculated risk;
To dream and to build.
To fail and to succeed.
I refuse to barter incentive for a dole;
I prefer the challenges of life
To the guaranteed existence;
The thrill of fulfilment
To the stale calm of Utopia.
I will not trade freedom for beneficence
Nor my dignity for a handout
I will never cower before any master
Nor bend to any threat.
It is my heritage to stand erect.
Proud and unafraid;
To think and act for myself,
To enjoy the benefit of my creations
And to face the world boldly and say:
This, with God’s help, I have done
All this is what it means
To be an Entrepreneur.”
