Finding symmetries in an unsymmetrical world ..

Posts Tagged ‘goal

There is this story about the earthen pot and the brass pot, where the brass pot proposed to the earthen pot one day that they go out in the world together. Fragile that it was, the earthen pot was reluctant, claiming that he would be safe by the fire. But the brass pot convinced the earthen pot to come along.

But the earthen pot could not survive the companionship and cracked after the ten steps that they took together.

The fable ends there, but here it just begins.


Are you the earthen pot, what’s keeping you from plunging out in the world?

Are you just excusing yourself believing that you are fragile, and torn.


I was just reading Lance Armstrong’s Its not about the bike. My journey back to life” . In an instance, Lance asked his Mom if her job was going nowhere, and she could outdo it any day; why dint she just quit.

To which she said  …”Son, You never quit.”


Simple as it may sound, but this one liner was so power packed  that all through his battling with the testicular cancer, a career that had just begun and was on the verge of a complete loss, and his fight for life, Lance kept reinforcing this and determined not to loose to the death and the odds of his survival.

And he DID WIN !


The point?

Simple, if you are weak, go put fire, burn yourself in it and come out with an astonishing stamina, for you can never win any battle when you have already lost it in your mind.

The sculpture is already inside stone, go morph it !

 If you want to build a ship, don’t herd people together to collect wood and don’t assign them tasks and work, but rather teach them to long for the endless immensity of the sea.

 


Seth writes that to do something all you need is some MOOD , far from ordinary claims of not having enough information, that’s out there for you, waiting for you, all you need is the perseverance and persistence to put it.

I know of a friend who always gives me enough ideas to juggle with , so many of them at times that at times I find myself warning him if he doesn’t do anything about it, I might as well steal them.


Ahh! Stealing someone else’s ideas. Of course the ideas that spread win, and who likes to conceive an idea, work on it, and then say’ oh I am not prepared yet, not enough’.




Buzo’s turn me off. I am 24, full of energy, and here with an open mind, to explore not what surrounds me, but what is within me. Call them what you should the NoNo’s ,buzo’s , they find remarkably innovative ways of turning down a prospective idea, and why things will never succeed, and why you are never prepared enough.

Well, the fact is that, you will never be prepared enough.

Watch Guy talking about Buzo’s here and why one should avoid them.



Obstacles are the things that you see when you take your eyes off the goal.

Don’t do that !

My two cents this year:

Do not listen to people who turn you off.

Follow your heart, fail better, smarter, faster.
