SUCCESS

Its just like another weekend when I am in a pensive mood, browsing through various job opprotunities on internet and wondering, what is it that defines SUCCESS. Why is it so elusive in nature, why do some have it and others dont . What is it about SUCCESS that makes it so desirable yet so unattainable. I want to nail this down ... REALLY, i want to unlock this mystery, why is it
like a mirage running away while I try to grasp it with my hands.
DAMN did I just mess up with my life or is there still that thing that I can use it......get it.....

I have never liked the idea of mediocrity , ironically people may just call me a mediocre person. I look at others and I ask myself, Why cant I, what is stopping me, why do they have it and why dont I.
And honestly , I want this jealousy to turn into so much of zealousness that I just make it happen.

Keep moving, keep learning and keep dreaming



There comes a time when somethings in life come to a standstill. They cease to serve any purpose in life. They cease to excite you, they no longer help you grow. Before that feeling sinks in, it is better to move on, else you will be caught in stagnation. Like a quicksand, the harder you try to move out, the deeper it pulls you in. someone very rightly said, the only constant thing in the world is change.

Change for better is good, but no one knows if the change will make you better off or worse. That element of uncertainty will always loom, but sometimes an unpredictability is better than the the certainty which does not take you forward.

Before the feeling of stagnation overpowers you, make a move, because the ability to give up on something that does not add meaning to your dreams, aspirations or future goals requires real courage and a tough decision.

In terms of economics, this can be correlated to the law of diminishing marginal utility. The more you do it, the lesser satisfaction you gain out of it (the economists may beg to differ if i used the incorrect law here). Life is too short to carry regrets.  After all, life is just once, and it is short. Why restrict to the set definitions, roles,rules, learnings, experiences.

Keep moving, keep learning and keep dreaming !
