2015 : Best Year Ever


Advertise Here

To start with the new year on a high note, was reading this morning , inspirational cartoon series by Zen Pencils. My friend purchased it and has been pushing me to pick and read the book. New year morning gave way to that.  Browsed and skimmed a bunch of wonderful cartoon series on very famous quotes. One of the quote stayed in my mind and made me reflect.  So why not write a post
When I was in my 8th grade, my class teacher who used to teach us English told me , which had been my mantra even now. Her statement to me was - “Hari , brilliant people can fail, but hardworking people do not fail”. Probably I would not have understood the word persistence or perseverance – so she just mentio2012-04-24-coolidgened hard work which was easy for me to grasp. There had been many situation in the last 15 years that made me realize in my own life of seen in others’ life.
The above comic strip excerpt clearly calls out – Talent, Genius or mere education2012-04-24-coolidge alone will not – it is only determination and persistence that is omnipotent.  When we truly believe we can compensate the lack of skill by doubling or tripling our efforts with determination there is no end on what we can do. 
My spinning class instructor keeps mentioning this when we do our Tabata sprints, when your challenged we improve. Yesterday in our 2014 year end special class she mentioned this two wolves story.
There is a battle between two wolves that goes on inside very people. It is a terrible fight and it is between two wolves . One is evil - he is anger, envy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, and ego." He continued, "The other is good - he is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion, and faith. The same fight is going on inside you - and inside every other person, too."
Which wolf will win? – The one you FEED.
This happens inside every one of us, and let us feed the good wolf , positive wolf.  Let this new year bring a lot of positivity for everyone. Every person I met in my life so far had helped me become a better person and learn something new from them. I wish all of them a happy new year 2015. Let this 2015 be the best year ever for everyone.

Miles to go before I sleep and miles to go before I sleep.
