Key to Success

Today’s thought for the day read as below:

Formula for success – Rise early, Work hard, Strike oil.

These are just some pearls of wisdom by some wise man. In the present scenario, people who are successful fall under two categories –
i) the ones who chased dreams and chose to be daring and different.
ii) the ones who worked on their inherent talents and harnessed them completely.

Resul Pookutty falls into the former while A R Rahman falls under the latter.

Last week, in the middle of the night, I was woken up by a SMS from a friend which worded like this: -

"Check this link http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/south_asia/7895708.stm
Can you recognize this face?”

Curiosity killed my sleep. Visited the link, and was startled to see the photo of my friend G. He has been interviewed along with the likes of Pookutty and other sound technicians. I had mentioned about G in my blog under the title “Chasing Dreams”. Way to go my friend. You are doing it perfectly right. If Pookutty has done it, so can you!!!

In “Dark Knight”, Joker mentions “If you’re good at something, never do it for free”. A perfectly articulated, thought provoking statement. Similar to what S brothers from my native have done with their lives – worked on their strengths, sharpened them further and made their passion, their line of work.

Is there any formula for success? May be, for it varies from person to person. Do divulge your views on how to unlock the key to success.

Good points all the way....but I think two other important things one must learn/keep in mind and practice to be successful is
- Cope with failures and dont give up
- Be patient...it takes time to shine and be heard (many cases unless you are a child prodigy)

@Thoda Sa
Too much for me to digest or am I too dumb?
