Refuse To Quit

This is China's Liu Xiang.

He won the gold medal at the 2004 Olympics in the 110m Hurdles, but has since struggled with problems with his Achilles tendon. It led him to drop out of the 2008 Olympics moments before he was set to compete.

But he worked to get back for London, and this morning he was ready to compete in the event he had once dominated the world in. It was clear before the race that this moment was special for him.

Then the race started.

Liu's Achilles, the same injury that had robbed him of the 2008 games, had been aggravated again.

You could see the frustration on Liu's face.

He struggled to even get up. But couldn't. Finally Liu did get up. He hopped toward the tunnel, ignoring the offered wheel chair.

It looked like London would end as another bitter disappointment for the once great runner.

But then, he stopped. And he turned around.

And he re-entered the track to a stadium-shaking ovation, and managed to finish the 110 metres. He ran... alone...just on one feet.... and finally stopping first to kiss the final hurdle.

As soon as Liu crossed the finish line, his fellow athletes embraced him.

And helped him.

And just like that Liu Xiang's tragic day became what is sure to be one of the enduring images of the 2012 London Olympics.

He is undoubtedly the WINNER because he refuses to quit !!

The Last Lecture

Randy Pausch died of Pancreatic Cancer in 2008, but wrote a book ‘The last lecture” before then, one of the bestsellers in 2007. What a legacy to leave behind…

In a letter to his wife Jai and his children, Dylan, Logan, and Chloe, he wrote this beautiful "Guide to a better life" for his wife and children to follow.  May you be blessed by his insight.

  • Don't compare your life to others'. You have no idea what their journey is all about.
  • Don't have negative thoughts of things you cannot control. Instead invest your energy in the positive present moment
  • Don't over do; keep your limits
  • Don't take yourself so seriously; no one else does
  • Don't waste your precious energy on gossip
  • Dream more while you are awake
  • Envy is a waste of time. You already have all you need..
  • Forget issues of the past. Don't remind your partner of his/her mistakes of the past. That will ruin your present happiness.
  • Life is too short to waste time hating anyone. Don't hate others.
  • Make peace with your past so it won't spoil the present
  • No one is in charge of your happiness except you
  • Realize that life is a school and you are here to learn.
  • Problems are simply part of the curriculum that appear and fade away like
  • algebra class but the lessons you learn will last a lifetime.
  • Smile and laugh more
  • You don't have to win every argument. Agree to disagree.

  • Call your family often
  • Each day give something good to others
  • Forgive everyone for everything
  • Spend time with people over the age of 70 & under the age of 6
  • Try to make at least three people smile each day
  • What other people think of you is none of your business
  • Your job will not take care of you when you are sick. Your family and friends will. Stay in touch.

  • Put GOD first in anything and everything that you think, say and do.
  • GOD heals everything
  • Do the right things
  • However good or bad a situation is, it will change
  • No matter how you feel, get up, dress up and show up
  • The best is yet to come
  • Get rid of anything that isn't useful, beautiful or joyful
  • When you awake alive in the morning, thank GOD for it
  • If you know GOD you will always be happy. So, be happy.

While you practice all of the above, share this knowledge with the people you love, people you school with,
people you play with, people you work with and people you live with.

Not only will it enrich YOUR life, but also that of those around you !!

Never Quit

Sometimes when we doesn't succeed to achieve our goals, we get disappointed (which is genuine) but don't lose your hope ever because there is always SILVER LINING in BLACK when you feel everything going wrong, may be something good going to be happen..

Sometime back i have heard someone blaming that "why i defeated while i tried my best? "

At that time i didn't have any answer but now as time passes, i realize the reason very well..i dont know whether Defeat is mandatory but when we try something very first time, may be we have less idea, experience to deal with or could be we are in wrong direction but the best part of doing mistakes is you earn knowledge of how can you do same task in right way.

Edison once said, i have tried 2000 times then invented Electric Bulb. He never took that 2000 tries as failure. Even he admitted proudly that he know 2000 ways of how Electric Bulb does not work.

Success is something what you believe and dream. The choice is always yours wither Quite or Keep trying. Its better to keep trying and never ever Quit.

"Never wins who tried 100 times ..wins those who, learn from their tries..". So why learn from others mistakes, do your owns.

The secret of Life is.."may be you can fall 10 times but return the favour 11th times"..

Always remember that you are the only best challenger of yourself, try to defeat youself every time and then you'll find that you are at One step ahead from previous one.

Thank God,He got an Apple !!

A lost guy who turned into A creator, An innovator, A legend and legends don’t die.

Steve Jobs is a genuinely Genius. He will be forever remembered as a visionary who brought significant changes in technology. With millions of people in the world being devoted fans of his creations and ideas – he will definitely live on forever. Here are some of the most memorable and inspiring quotes by Steve Jobs.

  • I want to put a dent in the universe.
  • Sometimes when you innovate, you make mistakes. It is best to admit them quickly, and get on with improving your other innovations.
  • The only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle.
  • Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions, drown out your own inner voice.
  • Sometimes life’s gonna hit you in the head with a brick, don’t lose faith.
  • The ones who are crazy enough to think that they can change the world, are the ones who do.
  • Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life!
  • Have the courage to follow your heart & intuition, they somehow already know what you truly want to become.
  • Do you want to spend the rest of your life selling sugared water or do you want a chance to change the world?
  • Stay hungry. Stay foolish.

Steve never born-never died. He is just an impression which we feel forever.

You are Superman !!

After team meeting, I went to my work station with full of frustration and headache of tons of workload. Start thinking what and how much a single individual can do. I invested all my time, enthusiasm, happiness almost everything to my office just for to keep happy my officials but what I get in return. Every time they push me for better result and every time I give more than my limits.

I was fully disappointed suddenly I heard a little voice, the familiar one, confident and very supportive. I started looking all around and couldn't figure out the source of sound. Its sound me like: why are you bothering, you are Superman.

I was fully shocked. I noticed that the guy on my right hand desk was continuously looking at me.
Hey, you noticed that?” I just confirmed.

He smiles and asks me to forget whatever the Manager told me in meeting regarding my performance.
No, it’s not about that”, I replied “the one which indicate me Superman”. Suddenly I realized ‘aaahhhhh what the hell I done” because in return, he started laughing.

I was thinking if the guy near me didn’t realized that sound than how can I?

I again observed that whisper “you are Superman”.

After a lot struggle, I ends up with the conclusion that it’s my own one…yes exactly it was my inner soul…he wanted to share something with me.

I surrender myself and start listen him.

He brings me some year back, almost 10-12 years back.

I was 12 year old, sweet, innocent and very weak physically. I clearly remembered that it was the Sunday night and the clock show 9’o clock. Next day, in morning I had to appear in my exams, the final one.
I was much tensed because I was not prepared for the exams. I was afraid to see the tons of book and syllabus. There were almost whole 2 books which I need to cover and it was already 9’o clock. I was helpless. Somewhere I accepted my failure in the exam so that I was fully lost.
Suddenly Dad entered in the room and asked me the reason of worry. I admitted that I am prepared for exam and nothing I could do now. He smiled and asked my favorite hero.

Superman”, I said.

Dad’s next question was, “what you learn from him?” he continued,” you think Superman never feel problems, pains. He never gets hurt all because he is Hero. No, he also wakes up daily, eat, and fight from the wrong ones to save the others. He also struggles to prove himself. For being Hero he has to put a lot of efforts, dedication and fighting whole day-night to bad guys. He does all the good stuffs and yet hides all his worries. He has to fight all his worries alone. He helped everyone while he knows no one can help him. You are like him, you are also Superman. No matter what you has to face in life or what problems do you have ever, when the time comes you must prove yourself and come up with full of dedication. Nothing is impossible, it just what you believe. Superman knows he can do that’s why he just step-in and come up with all the success.

I got the impression what the Dad want to tell me. I still remember that day I studied whole night and secured good marks in that exam.

Today I realize there is Superman in all of us. We all can do whatever we want to do. It may be possible that there will lots of problem will come in the way. May be some time we will be frustrate, helpless, lost but one thing we should never forget that this is not the end.

Every problem comes up with the solution attached with it. It doesn’t matter how much time you fall, what you did when you stand up really matters.

Recognize the inner Superman for yourself and then you will feel that the sky is yours. If you cannot do something, no one can do then. Life is beautiful and full of opportunities, live it fully.
So if you ever fall down just call your Superman and defiantly he will show you that you are awesome.
