    Do you want to be successful? I know most of you would think I am mad for asking the obvious answer to such an obvious question. Aren’t you? Everybody wants to taste it, after all!


    But what does -Success mean to you?- This question holds more importance than the former. Is it raising a million-dollar business, securing a well-paid job, driving a luxurious car, being Popular or, generating a lot of money? How do you define it in your very own life is everything that does the work for you.
    It is spectacular that you have dreams that you want to turn into reality. But hey! Pause. Are you happy with your present life? It would be better to quote- Are you satisfied with the life you presently consider unsuccessful? All of us are crazily behind one goal or the other. We want things to turn for us in a certain way. Hence we submerge all of our precious life for that very prestigious purpose. This zeal is beautiful until it takes a toll on your mental health and happiness.

    Too lost in racing behind, we hardly pay heed to how are we losing our contentment? How are we undervaluing our present happiness? Happiness and success both are sacred. We have been going all wrong our lives thinking that they always go hand in hand. We consider happiness a destination; that will knock on our drenched door when we wave Hi to our very affluent friend- Success. But no, this is not how things are in life.

    “You need not be successful to feel happy. ”

    Read it twice, thrice, or as many times as you need to until you feel this in your bones. Now I know most of you would disagree. How can I overpower happiness over success, right? We need to bear some pain to get the fruit in our hands. Working for our dreams is so empowering and a lot of such. I want you to understand that I am not asking you to be lazy, stop working for the better, or just do not set goals from now.

    All I want from you is to be happy in the process. You can smile and sweat at the same time. Nobody said you to feel good once you have made it to a fancy goal or dream. There is not any rule like this. Happiness is our water; there is no need to make it a hefty cup of coffee. Though your craving for that cup of coffee is justified, it does not mean that you will stop consuming water until you finally have that coffee.

    Perhaps we need to deal with things, situations, and people restraining us from reaching wherever we want. It is a necessary part of the process. But not being grateful enough for living in the present moment is wrong. This habit of not practicing gratitude makes us feel hollow even if we make it to one goal or a part of it. Because instead of rejoicing that small win, we pay attention to what did not go right or how much more effort we need to put in to reach the ultimate goal or the most supreme of all?
    How can someone be happy with such a hustle? Your dreams are a beautiful component of your journey. You must put your best to make them real without undermining the worth of your present life. For if there was no present, would the future ever exist? No! So calm your mind, cheer up and smile, be crystal clear of your goals and start doing things you want. Be proud of the life that you are presently living.
    And when we have had our crucial share of failures and wins, we shall know the real purpose behind our existence.


    Much strength and power to you

    Happiness or Success?

    Happiness is our water; there is no need to make it a hefty cup of coffee. Though your craving for that cup of coffee is justified, it does not mean that you will stop consuming water until you finally have that coffee.

    I know I break my own heart sometimes.
    I want life to be certain way and it
    kills me when I can't make it so.
    However, there's beauty in this chaos,
    there're lessons on every struggle and failure.
    And so, I choose to be grateful that I can fight on.

    Where do you?

    Where are they hiding
    their failures?
    their breakdowns and
    Mishaps?
    Where have they buried
    broken plans and
    uncountable denials?
    Where is it they
    go to forget all the
    unsupported ideas,
    Where do they hide
    when the smirk follows
    them even in the lights out
    and to a point where
    no one is around
    in the extreme of emptiness?

    I know what failure means
    When its been days, and I haven't achieved what I wanted
    When even after so many trials, this vicious cycle of pain never ends
    When I know that each and every tiny bit of life is wonderful, whilst mine's a little struggling
    When I feel like giving up but still hold onto whatever hope there's still left
    When I know that no matter how stagnant I am, life does goes on
    But thats okay, because these failures are lessons learned and it's still beautiful the way it is

    ഇപ്പടി വീഡിയോസ് പാത്തിട്ടെ ഇരുക്കുമ്പോത് ഒരു നാൾ എൻ കനവ് കൂടെ നിജമായിടും എന്ന നമ്പിക്കയെ യാരോ യെ കാതിൽ വന്ത് സൊല്ലിട്ടെയിരുക്ക്. എപ്പടി നാ എനക്ക് തെരിയാത്. ആണാ ഒരു നമ്പിക്കൈ. അവളോം ആസ ഇരുകുലെ. അതാ. ഒരു നാൾ.....രസികർ നമ്പിക്കൈയില്ലേ അതേയ്താൻ.തമിഴ് ന്നാ അവളോം പുടിക്കും.

    Life......you just have to decide on which turn to cling onto.....Failure always comes with success, that is if we have the serenity of cohabiting with it.tolerance to failure beseige glory.
    Life condole two sides of a coin it's either you are the sculptor or the sculpted,and most time leaning at the wrong side of the coin isn't a sign of vulnerability,cos we'll all be needing the rough lessons to a painless future.

    Failures are not to be blamed,
    They are wrongly named!
    A failure is just a temporary setback,
    One can definitely find a U turn if wants to get back.
    Failures gives courage at the end point,
    Anyway losing, why not give another count?
    Failures should not stop us, they should encourage,
    To find different ways to tackle and manage.
    No doubt, they are the stepping stones to success,
    Only when handled without any mess.
    Let us not worry about failures anymore,
    They can lead us from the cross road stronger than before.

    When it’s easier said than done…


    I told myself not to fall again after my unsuccessful long term relationship unless it's really the one for me. 

    I told myself just to be friends with someone I’m comfortable with without letting myself fall again.

    I told myself not to date anyone unless I’m ready.

    I told myself to guard my heart.


    But all of those words vanished into thin air when I met this guy. He was too kind for me, a perfect guy I thought to myself. He was there when I was sad and missing my family and friends. He listened to my sentiments and kept messaging me every now and then. I tried not to be available whenever he sent messages or called or even when he wanted to meet again over coffee or dinner.


    What I promised to myself was broken. 

    I totally forgot my mantra in life. Not to fall again unless it’s for sure and I’m ready.

    I didn’t know. It was too fast. I fell and I failed. It was too good to be true to me. I cried so hard. It’s painful.


    Why is it so painful? Why is it more painful than my first love (the long term)? Why am I broken to pieces? 


    It’s so fresh. I know it’s my fault. I let myself fall. 

    I was too weak. I didn’t realize he was battling something inside him. I didn’t try to understand him more. I didn’t give him enough space for himself. I was too pushy and idealistic for the relationship. I was too darn serious about the love I always wanted after being single for a long time.


    I don’t know when I will be okay again. 

    Hopefully, when the time comes, I will be whole again. I want to get back to what I used to be. I want to be the same woman I was. I want to go back to my own self when I only care and love myself. Nobody else. 


    It’s so hard. I can’t help myself crying at night. It causes me more sleepless nights thinking about the decisions I’ve made. I was the one who initiated the breakup. I was the one who didn’t understand him fully. I love him with all my heart, but maybe I was selfish, too needy to ask for his time all the time. I demanded time. It was all my fault I guess….


    Now, I’m missing him so bad….

    I don’t know when I can get over him. I hope one day when I wake up, everything will be alright as if nothing happened. I hope one day when I wake up, I’ll forget those good memories so nothing will remain in my mind. I hope one day when I wake up, I can face and accept the reality that I met someone whom I loved but didn’t last (again). 


    I know I can move on. I can forget him. I believe someone will come along who’ll be the right one for me….but for now...It’s hard….


    It’s easier said than done...

    Franklin Roosevelt was paralyzed from the waist down by polio but the illness didn't stop him and he became the President of the United States

    J.K Rowling the author of Harry Potter had lost her mother when she had just begun to write the book. She ended up with a failed marriage and a baby daughter who she had to raise. She hit rock bottom and struggled with depression. She later resumed her work on her book but was rejected by 12 publishers. Finally, the editor at Bloomsbury Publishing Company published her book and now she is an author whose book series has been translated into 73 languages, sold millions of copies, and accrued over $20 billion through movie adaptations and sponsorships.

    Michael Jordan the best basketball player of all times once said - "I've missed more than 9,000 shots in my career. I've lost almost 300 games. 26 times, I've been trusted to take the game-winning shot and missed. I've failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed"


    If we look at all these stories of famous people who failed, we see that they all had one thing in common - "They never gave up". It's not easy to pick yourself up after a failure but it's definitely possible. We just need to fight the motivation to keep fighting, whenever you feel like giving up, just remember why you wanted to do that task in the first place. The key to success is to learn from your failures. I believe in you and I know that you will succeed in whatever you do. No matter how hard it gets, keep fighting. Never ever give up.

    No one is perfect in this world. We all make mistakes someway or the other, but just because you make mistakes doesn't means you aren't good at it or you should give up.

    Trust me, everyone in this universe has struggled a lot in their life, but the people who has achieved success are the people who never gave up. They learned from their mistakes, stood back on their feet, and worked hard to ensure that they don't fail again.

    Failures

    Failures are really hard
    This hit back to back
    But once you are successful
    Everyone forgets the past failures
    When the day comes they see your failures
    As your stepping stones
    And give your examples
    Till then just have to survive the taunts
    As the burning samples
    It's hard to resist
    But forgotten once over
    The phase in life makes you meet yourself
    You know than the whole world you are stronger

    Rebirth

    Don't be a dead corpse
    Unleash your strength and
    Rise from your ashes.
    Show your potentiality to the world
    Rise, Rise and give that dead stare to them,
    who made you feel miserable.
    As you can hear that once,
    People will cheer your name
    and call you the mighty phoenix.
