“To be a well favored man is the gift of fortune, but to read and write comes by nature”
“Some are born great, some achieve greatness, and some have greatness thrust upon them.”
So… you have a wish. And you want it to come to reality, right??
Aladdin also had some wishes, but he materialized them by using some extraordinary power named Genie, remember??
Right. I want you to know that you too have a Genie in your life… wanna guess?? its name starts with U_____, any guesses??
Well, let me make it easier, its the Universe, of course.
So how to materialize your wishes using the Genie… here is what you have to do:
“If you have a wish, pray and wait for 1 month… if it’s not fulfilled, pray harder and you don’t have to wait for another (month).”
– Manhardeep Singh Ahluwalia
You probably have heard the saying, “Everything comes to those who wait.” Is it so?
You need to catch a train from Ludhiana to Delhi, will you reach Delhi if you sit at home merely WAITING for someone to pick you up and take you to the railway station? He’ll pick your luggage, get you into the train and make you comfortable there… is it really so?
Instead, it is you and only YOU who has to perform all the actions from going out of your home to boarding that train.
Hence, we can derive the 2Ws essential for success, and they are:
“Everything comes to those who work and wait.”
– Manhardeep Singh Ahluwalia
I have a friend named, Raghav Gupta. He is Master in ALOHA (well, sorry guys I don’t know what it stands for) and for him doing calculations with big numbers is piece of cake. But for others, it is not such…
So after a prolonged thought to this, I derived a quote that defines Success in terms of Mathematics…
Here is the quote:
“Small success is like small numbers, they can be added up easily and rapidly than big numbers.”
-Manhardeep Singh Ahluwalia
Let me introduce you to the 24-year-old Mr Pistorius who holds the double-amputee world records for all the sprint distances (100, 200 and 400 metres) and has been competing against non-handicapped athletes in international races since 2008. Last month he ran the 400 metres in 45.07 seconds, quick enough to qualify for Daegu, as well as for the 2012 Olympics in London.
Really, Where there is a dream, challenges hardly matter.
Champions keep playing until they get it right.

Anyone can count the seeds in an apple,
but only God can count
the number of apples in a seed.

If you’ve read ‘I have paid the price‘ then definitely you know how ‘LUCK’ is spelled.
For those who have not read it or doesn’t even know then so here the spellings of ‘LUCK’ is going to be revealed.
To understand the spellings, we are going to take help of the ‘world’s fastest man’ – Usain Bolt (also known as ‘Lightning Bolt’)
Usain Bolt is a world record holder for being the fastest man on earth, completing the 2009 world championships 100 m sprint in 9.58s. None the less, he is not only the record holder of the 100m sprint but also of 200m race. He has a world record of completing this event in 19.19s.
And to your surprise, he broke both the world records at the same Olympics and he became the first man to hold both the 100 and 200 m world and Olympic titles at the same time.
But that’s his LUCK, people say.
If you ask him what was the reason he will frankly tell you that it was his “LUCK” that brought him where he is today.
And you’ll not ask anything further after asking this question because you too will consider that where you are today is only because of your LUCK and indeed you are right.
But, let me help you by asking another question to this legend. “How did you become LUCKY?” and he will reply “By WORK” and after a pause he’ll continue, “I workout for 16 hours a day. I compete with myself and my timings everyday. I wake up early and run a few miles daily. I have nutritional diet and take care of my health so that I can perform at optimal point. Every night I visualize myself breaking the world record, running faster than the previous day. I WORK to be LUCKY and I WORK HARDER to be MORE LUCKY.”
Through his answer you’ll understand that the actual spellings of ‘LUCK’ is:
“The harder you work the more lucky you’ll be.”
I went to an adventure camp organized by “I CAN DO IT”
I was in Yellow Belt then and had been learning martial arts for about three months.
The next morning came and it was time for some exercise (which was obviously optional). Me and some of the friends got ready for the exercise… and I was like “I’m a martial artist and I can do anything” my god, what a thinking that was… the typical “I know all” thinking, which kills many.
And today, being black belt, training a lot of students, I realize how much less I know.
Of course, you too might have experienced the same thing in your profession, work place or in personal life.
So to conclude, remember:
“When you know more you come to know how much you know less.”
