Surround yourself with inspiring people and with inspiring quotes

Yesterday my Friend & CTO Ksawme shared the above image on FaceBook… Also he sent this small note…

Hey Anand Nataraj, Do you remember this?!

“Alfred to Batman : “Things always get worse before they get better” – One of my favorite quote from the movie “The Dark Knight”

Here, who is Alfred & who is the batman?! 😉

That was the quote Ksawme shared when things were looking very blink last year… Nothing was happening right and what made us run was such motivation quotes and the motivating personality Ksawme and me possessed…

Today when I was looking at FaceBook I got this tip and it sounded relevant… I wish all budding entrepreneurs to consider recommendation seriously…

It might be impractical or unrealistic to expect your entrepreneurial, corporate, political, or athletic heroes to hang out at your cloistered startup headquarters on a daily basis, but it is a surprisingly motivating strategy to surround yourself with their words, especially if your heroes happen to be individuals who have accomplished difficult or near-impossible tasks. When you’re tired and it’s late at night – and Sunday mornings seem far far away in the future – take the time to inspire yourself with a great quote or a quick motivational video, nothing too long or too serious, anything that will remind you of the reasons for which QUITTING IS NOT AN OPTION. Copy the quotes down on brightly coloured sticky-notes and paste them to your computer screen. Go to our website and post startup quotes to your Facebook page. Print them up and tack them up onto the bare white wall you keep staring at when your eyes begin to blur in the late afternoon. Whatever you do, put yourself in an environment where you are constantly reminded that YOU ARE NOT ALONE and that YOU…

Someone’s perception on FAILURE

Today I was searching for a friend of mine and i slipped into someone’s profile on Facebook… I was quite impressed to see the Favorite Quote of this person which was inspiring and motivating… I wanted to share it with you all;

“If you fail, learn, and move on, you’re growing.” ~ Robert Kiyosaki

Have you ever failed? If not, I would guess that you have never taken a chance on trying anything new – or else you are lying.

There is nothing wrong with failing – as long as you learn from your mistakes, modify your approach and try again. In fact the more often you fail, the sooner it will be that you finally succeed – provided that you do learn and keep trying.

You can only grow from experience and you only get experience from having a go at something. It may be more pleasant to succeed, but you can actually learn more from failing. But this is only if you are observant and take note of what you are doing and which things have worked and which haven’t. You then need to analyze what has happened, alter your direction and move on.

So go for it! Try, try again and if you don’t at first succeed . . . then try yet again. You will eventually get there – unless you stop trying.

Yet another dull day

Yesterday I woke up only to see myself trapped inside my house and I had to stay inside my house the whole for waking up late. Metro water pipe lying was happening and my street was dug and the entire street was not accessible. My mom woke me up asking me to get ready and get out if I had any work. My laziness played the spoil sport.

Then today again I got up late and again my father took the car which was parked in my uncle’s house couple of streets away and my sister took the two-wheeler. Since it rained the entire mud filled patches got wet and it became like quit sand. Most of the cars got struck in the sand. So again I had to stay back and I didn’t want to waste one more day as I didn’t have any online work to work from home.

Also I got a call from my friend who invited me for lunch to introduce his boss who would be of help in my business. I decided to travel though public transport (Pallavan Bus). Then I went to office to check if my old notebook which was back from servicing (it has 600+ viruses) is working fine. To my happiness everything was fine.

Still I was not feeling comfortable. My body vibes were not positive. Then I called bala to hear irritating news and our mud slingers have started with their work of disturbing us from doing our business. Again my folks are not allowing me to act because patience is always taken for weakness.

Then I went to meet my friend’s boss and I was not in a mood to speak business and I made the occasion as a normal networking lunch and I moved back to office. Bala reached in another 15 min of me reaching back to office and he had to take an interview and finish a client meeting.

After everything was done I went and engaged a conversion with bala and I still felt the day was not productive and I wanted to do something useful to sign off the day. So I decided to buy some motivation quotes to place it in our office. Then myself and bala went to Landmark and brought some 17 frames with motivation quoted and I personally got a thirukural book with also has an explanation about what the kural says.

Then again my friends called me for a movie and we all went to Aadhavan. I’m must be crazy or more brave to watch a movie which I didn’t enjoy when I watched it first.

Over all the day was pretty ordinary and I tried to make it little productive but taking some voluntary steps. Let me put all the bad omen back and step forward to have a fascinating Friday.

First thing I’ll be doing tomorrow is to have a hair cut and have a new look and feel to make some cyclonical difference.
