There is No Plan B!

Believe in yourself and you will find that the world believes in you,

Believe in yourself and you will have all the energy, power and motivation to achieve all that you desire,

Believe in yourself and you can make all your dreams come true.

The first step before anyone else believes you, is that you start believing your own self.

Reminds me of a famous quote which goes like this – ” There is actually no reason to have a Plan B, because that only distracts you from Plan A.”

Even having the notion of Plan B or a backup plan shows that you are not completely confident on your Plan A. The moment you doubt on your original plan is the moment you have failed. The most successful people never had a Plan B. For them, their Plan A was their Plan B, Plan C and Plan D.

May be your plan is not realistic but who cares. Life is never about being realistic, it is about being optimistic.

The secret of success

Initially I thought being successful is a daunting task. Not all are successful and that’s okay. But gradually I realised the real meaning of success.

After having worked in the corporate field, it became obvious to me that success is a broader term and without bringing in the Catalysts into picture the definition of success will hold no ground.

Imagine adding all veggies, oil, spices together with no flame. Would it be eatable? No. Adding all the ingredients together does not mean that the dish that is edible. It needs a Catalyst, and fire is the catalyst in this case.

Same holds true in careers and life. Most people think, “I have the ingredients for success so, I will be successful.” No, without bringing in catalysts, you cannot get the real success.
