Destiny or destination?

Just don’t let your doubts get the better of you when faced with inescapable situations

There are times in life when you question whether you have what it takes to be successful and times when you question whether all your sacrifices are worth it. In my dictionary there is only one answer – “Giving up is not an option.”

You won’t get the response from your potential customers, your team will fail at delivering projects on time, you’ll face customer dissatisfaction, you’ll get caught up in day to day, etc. etc.
These and there are several other inescapable situations in the life that keeps coming in the life.

In year 2008 when the world was struggling to fight the financial meltdown and depression, a legendary businessman opined me, “Whenever faced with the tough spot, my philosophy is to bow the head and let the storm pass by. Tomorrow will be another day and that would be mine.”

Recently, I came to know about the eagle, which has capability to fly at the highest length. When faced with the storm, an eagle goes at the top of the storm, floats there and allows the storm to pass underneath.

When I started up my entrepreneurial journey in 2010, I had a plan to leapfrog the success using my talent, skills, expertise and personal magic.

However, when inside the game the experience has been very different.

I believe the fun lies in being there and being around instead of mingling too much about the “destiny or destination”.
