The powers




While celebrating success we should also highlight the epic journey towards success that are filled with trials,tribulations,upsets,setbacks and failures. Its not as glamorous to talk about those things but its important. Failure as much as its hurt is an important part of our life. Most successful people in our life have failed most of the time.

“I have missed more than 9000 shots in my career. I have lost almost 300 games. 26 times,I have been trusted to take the winning shot and missed. I have failed over and over and over again in my life and that is why I succeed.”

_ Michael Jordan

In order to grow,you need to fail,it is life’s ultimate lesson. Failing will happen ,no matter how hard you try to avoid it so you might as well have a ‘no fear’ attitude towards it. This should not mean you should expect to fail,but when it happens accept it.

Failure has value. Through failure you will get to know yourself better and you will learn from your mistakes. Failure makes us rethink,reconsider and find new ways and strategies to achieve your goals.

When you think about failure,you should not think in a negative light. Yes its painful and causes emotional turmoil and upsets. It inflicts agonizing pangs of guilt ,regrets and remorse. It may even cut deep like a razor slicing its way to your inner core,yet its necessary. The key to success is in how you handle failure. Handling failure does not come Naturally to some people. It an acquired skill. Some of our emotions tell us to sulk and avoid any situation in future that are likely to put us in the line to feel the pain of failure and its where we go astray.

So many times in our life our fear of falling keeps us from beginning. We have to ‘feel the fear and do it anyway’. Start with one small thing,make it something you know you will succeed at….,build your confidence and momentum and keep going. I say this because,the regret of never having tried can hurt worse than trying and failing.

Bear in mind that,the many times you fail are many steps to your success.


Commitment is the essence of ultimate secret to getting absolutely everything you want. Its willingness to do whatever it takes to accomplish your goals. Willingness is a mental attitude that state if it takes waking up 3 in the morning to accomplish your goals then you will wake up 3 in the morning. This means that to succeed,you will make a commitment to do whatever it takes regardless of the nature of the conditions involved.

This means that you have to make a commitment to achieve your goals then you will follow through with relentless determination and action until you achieve the desired result.

There is power that exist and its becomes available only when you are in that state of mind in which you know exactly what you want and you are fully determined not to quit until you achieve it.

Commitment is the act of having passion for what you do. Its helps you discover how bad you want to succeed. It leads to ownership and ownership will lead you to success.

Commitment is the principal of all. It will help you to make a pledge that will obligates you to do what it takes for you to succeed.

If there is anything that can affect how you think its commitment. Its extremely powerful and to succeed you need perseverance. Perseverance can only happen if you have a heartfelt,longterm commitment. The temptation to give up will arise but it is commitment you will have made that will help you get through and find success.

Jeff Keller argued in his book that,when you are committed,its likely you will not be derailed. Those who are not committed are derailed easily thus not achieving their goals

For instance,most people start a business with approach of ‘I will give it one year if it does not work out after one year I will quit This is where commitment separates the winners from losers. The committed people are going to hang in there and prevail no matter what. If it takes a little longer then they thought so be it,but they will never quit. Those who are not committed are going to give up the ship when things don’t work out.

Just stay true to yourself,set long term goals,turn problems into opportunities and make commitment to do whatever it takes and start moving forward.

Remember, one person with a commitment is worth more than 100 people who have only an interest.


Hard work pays. It’s an advice we have all being told several times that it has lost it taste.We have been so used to it that it does not sound at all important .The real question we should all ask ourselves is what is hard work?

Hard work has been given so many definitions that it confuses which one should guide us or the actual meaning. Some people personally,search for the meaning of hard work. I look for values that can guide me .I want to make sense of why i do what I do. Everyone is hoping that their life’s purpose will lead them to happiness and peace of mind.

Oxford defines hard work as a”great deal of effort or endurance.” Merriam Webster defines hardworking as “industrious,diligent.” In those meanings there is Effort,Endurance,Diligence and Industrious but all lead to success. In other words to archive success we have to work hard.

Have read about hard work from different writers and talked to people about hard work. I came to realise that hard work is what we both physically exert and mentally state of mind. This makes us realise that unless we are at a duress or strick direction,why should we work hard?You would work hard for something you have thought and planned for that will lead you to happiness,success or a well being.

The saying,”hard work beats talent when talent does not work hard” should mean something. You have talent and for it to work you have to apply it. That means one has to work hard,not necessarily as hard as the person who develops skills naturally. Regardless,hard work beats talent any day because hard work has one thing that talent does not have and that is Experience.

There is no secret sure ticket to success. There is no secret mantra. There is only a path,and to follow the path you have to be ready to work hard. There is no substitute to hard work unless we change the meaning of success.

If you want to do well in life or any other field of life,you need to know one essential mantra,work hard and the result will follow. Passion is as important as hard work. I guess both work hand in hand .Do not do something people expect you to do,instead do something that makes you happy. Something that you are passionate about.

The point is ,no one get to define hard work for anyone else. Just like success,you define hard work for yourself. Your success should be supported by how you define hard work. I think I should even say,though not relatable,”the end justifies the means”.

For example,a father’s definition of hard work would be making sure that his kids are well fed,schooled and housed. The sure and strick path direction is to see his kids fed,schooled and housed. This would be the reason to push him to work hard.

My personal definition would be reaching the given point at a given time. You have a different meaning than this,that okay because that would make us unique. What matters is to work hard enough because success travels in the company of hard work. There is no trick and no easy way.

With that i will leave you with the quotes from these amazing people.

Success is not accident .It is hard work,perseverance,learning,studying,sacrifice and most of all,love what you are doing or learning to work.


Success isn’t always about greatness . It’s about consistency. Consistent hard work leads to success. Greatness will come.
