The Start Of A New Journey

Hello All,

    This is my first post (Not my first blog though!). A hearty welcome to all my blog readers.

   This blog is the start of a new quest with the ultimate intention to redefine my efficacy as well as your efficacy (If I may) to lead a successful life. Initially, each one of us used to be ‘gung-ho’ in all that we do but time and again life has taught us lessons in ways unimaginable thereby making most of us wacky, byzantine and sometimes even supercilious. A few become enervated. Yet a few,leave this world permanently thinking that they are leaving for the better. While there is nothing we can do for the latter few, time and again it has been proved that ‘Achievements are revised versions of Failures‘.

    Now,Who am I? I am an IT Professional (Its appropriate to call me a Rookie rather than a Professional, as I have less than a year of experience) playing a small role in the kafkaesque IT bubble. Am an Indian and am extremely proud of it! One thing that no other person can deny about India is its diversity- India is a land rich in diversity and this IT bubble makes sure that you meet a lot many persons in life – Some make you happy, Some others make you happy by instigating you to punch them, Yet a few make you happy by instigating you to punch them straight in their face!  I spend most of my time wondering about the many different complexities surrounding this world. I used to be an extrovert. But, due to some recent developments in what used to be my normal life, I guess being an introvert is wise. (Or should I say it the other way around?)  Its up to you, my fellow readers to decide what’s right for you.

    Everyone has to start somewhere and here I stand, 21 years of age charged up more than ever due to various intricacies of the past. Life is a continuous learning process. There are a lot of lessons yet to be learned and am ready to embrace it all just like a little baby who cuddles his little Teddie.

    Be ready to embrace all things that is gonna happen in your long life.Yeah, life is not short. Life is long and we should be happy about it. If you want me to sound optimistic,’Everything happens for a reason‘ or if you want me to be pious, everything is ‘pre-written’. Else,If you want me to be sanctimonious, ‘ He who possess the Spear of Destiny holds the fate of the world in his hands‘. (Honestly,It gives me chills every time I utter this sentence. Additionally, It makes me wonder what if I happen to get hold of the Spear of Destiny! ** Evil Laughter ** ).

    Let happiness fill your life more than ever. If you happen to feel worried, just come back and look at this post again.

    Before I sign off,let me tell you something about Abraham Lincoln ( Not the Vampire Hunter whom we have seen in movies! Sarcasm intended.) – The 16th President of the United States of America.

1816: His family was forced out of their home. He had to work to support them.
1831: Failed in business.
1832: Ran for state legislature – lost.
1832: Also lost his job – wanted to go to law school but couldn’t get in.
1833: Borrowed some money from a friend to start a business and by the end of the year he was bankrupt. He spent the next 17 years of his life paying off this debt.
1835: Was engaged to be married, his sweetheart died.
1838: Sought to become speaker of the state legislature – defeated.
1840: Sought to become elector – defeated.
1843: Ran for Congress – lost.
1848: Ran for re-election to Congress – lost.
1849: Sought the job of land officer in his home state – rejected.
1854: Ran for the Senate of the United States – lost.
1856: Sought the Vice-Presidential nomination at his party’s national convention – got less than 100 votes.
1858: Ran for U.S. Senate again – lost.

    And then, he became The President of the United States of America. Additionally we all know that he was the son of a shoemaker. Everyone must be aware on how the society treated shoemakers in the 18th century. To him Defeat was a Detour. Not a Dead End.

    Be happy as happiness is one of the recipes for success. If you are not happy,make yourself happy. Party hard. Learn indefinitely. After all, ‘You Only Live Once’ and it lies in your efficacy to make the best out of it. Cheers 🙂
