Have you ever tried doing crunches or weights? If Yes, then you do realize that the measurement of your workouts being effective is that you abs get sore and your muscles begin to pain. With that pain will you start seeing results.
This is the same way one starts to build life. There are quite a few times we are thrown into unknown territories and we start thinking What am I doing? Am I living the life I want? Am I doing what I really want in life?
These questions become more prominent when you hit roadblocks. As Steve Jobs says “Look into the mirror and ask yourself, if this is the last day of your life, are you happy doing what you are doing? If the answer is No for three consequitive days, then you need to change something”.
Don’t loose the motivation when things are not going according to your plan. Keep pushing and keep working out. Change the strategy, work and re-work on your plan of action and push yourself. Identify what motivates you and keep bringing those points which motivate you to accomplish what you wish to accomplish.
Remember, Success always follows failure.
Since the time I remember, I have always been thinking as to where ideas come from and what does it take for an idea to take off?
All the successful entrepreneurs share their journey and we get inspired. We want to do something different, but we don’t know where to begin.
I constantly have ideas which fly by me and then gets lost in time.
Have a small pocket dairy / use your phone to jot down your idea and you can revist it later.
What if you are driving or not in a mood to type or write anything – Use the voice recording app on your phone and record you idea.
Evaluate it later and take it forward.
Simple. But Complex.
There is one thig stronger than all armies in the world, and that is an idea whose time has ome – Victor Hugo

Well, that’s a very big word to use, but that is how I feel today about myself.
I slept last night a little anxious about how will I be dealing with today. When I entered the stadium it was electrifying and very energizing. I was only telling myself that this is not a competition and only to enjoy the run as long as I could run. I was clear that I am going to push myself but not as much that I am going to hurt myself. The flag off was at 6:00 AM and it was on time. I was very high on energy seeing the crowd. Started at my regular pace and within few minutes was out of the stadium beginning my first ever official 10K. Usually I take a break after about 10 minutes of run and walk for few seconds before I start running again. But today, I didn’t want to do that. I wanted to keep running at my regular pace and see how far/long I can go. Well, I surprised myself. I didn’t not take a break to walk for the first 5K. Then took a small walk break and again back to my pace. I carried lemon and honey water to keep me going. At one place I grabbed few orange slices and a gulp of water. Kept to my pace, kept my cool and just kept going. I completed the 10K in 1:16:23 and when I walked though the finish line, I felt reincarnated. Yes. It is a new beginning of myself and I look forward to reinvent myself.
The #TCSW10K is a wonderfully organized event and a big hi-five to the organizers and volunteers
Welcome to a new beginning. Look forward for my next 10K on 7 June for Anandayana.
I have been running off and on for a while and over a period of time I decided to take running a little more seriously than I did earlier.
So, yesterday, I decided to get myself ready for the upcoming TCK 10K on 17 May 2015.
My last reading has been You are an Ironman, by Jacques Steinberg. It is a collection of stories of 6 running from around the world who started running for a small change and to get back in shape, and over the course of time, as fate would have it, have been introduced to Ironman and then began training for the mega-event. The stories will definitely pump up your blood.
Since reading the book, I slowly started to bring running into my schedule. Last week, went for a nutritionist appointment and chalked out a nutrition plan. Yesterday, after my morning run for about 3.66 KM, went and signed up for an on-line Training plan for 10K. Training begins from tomorrow (today being the rest day).
BTW, did I mention? I have been a smoker for last 15 Years and now, I decided to kick the butt (I tried few times earlier when i failed and am not willing to give up any soon). In this process, I wish to let the habit go too.
This blog is dedicated to people like me who wish to follow their passion.
