Truly inspiring

“Do not follow where the path may lead.  Go, instead, where there is no path and leave a trail.”

- Ralph Waldo Emerson

You are who you are

I really enjoy this quote which beautifully captures the essence of the important concept of being who you are, and being true to yourself  in every decision you make and at every moment in your life.
If you want to be someone you are not, you would’ve been created that way to begin with!

“Be what you are.  This is the first step toward becoming better than you are.”

 – Julius Charles Hare

I smile everytime I read this story

Here is my favorite story/quote from one of the most interesting books I’ve read. I have mentioned this story ( in the “How Happy are you” post)  and reviewed the book previously. The book is “The Practice and Philosophy of Decision making : A Seven step Spiritual Guide” by Neeraja Raman.

Here’s how the story goes :

A big cat saw a kitten chasing its tail and asked, “Why are you chasing your tail?”
Said the kitten, “I have learned that the best thing for a cat is happiness and that happiness is in my tail. Therefore I am chasing it and when I catch it, I shall have happiness.”
Said the old cat, “My child, I too have paid attention to the problems of the universe. I too have judged that happiness is in my tail. But I have noticed that whenever I chase it, it runs away from me and when I go about my business, it just seems to come after me wherever I go.”


This is my life mantra. I try and adhere to it as often as I can as hard as possible. It’s not as easy as it’s said but definitely something worth following.

Chance

“The guy who takes a chance, who walks the line between the known and unknown, who is unafraid of failure, will succeed.”                  

-Gordon Parks
