Believe & Become!
If you believe in something, you will sure become that.
When you think you are worth a penny, then you worth even less.
When you think you are worth a billion, then you are worth even more.
Inferior attitude pulls you down, progressive attitude pushes you into the Top.
Choose what you think carefully.
Winner thinks about “What works?”
Looser thinks about “What doesn’t works?”
Who thinks “What works?” – Wins.
Who thinks “What doesn’t works?” – loses.
This passage is my take away from an inspiring article written by a neurosurgeon who died @ 37. In this article he explains about doing an operation, which applies in many parts of our life.
There are two strategies to cutting the time short, like the tortoise and the hare. The hare moves as fast as possible, hands a blur, instruments clattering, falling to the floor; the skin slips open like a curtain, the skull flap is on the tray before the bone dust settles. But the opening might need to be expanded a centimetre here or there because it’s not optimally placed. The tortoise proceeds deliberately, with no wasted movements, measuring twice, cutting once. No step of the operation needs revisiting; everything proceeds in orderly fashion. If the hare makes too many minor missteps and has to keep adjusting, the tortoise wins. If the tortoise spends too much time planning each step, the hare wins.
This a very inspiring outlook on how to live our life….will for sure improve your perspective of life. I took many lessons from this article. Above takeaway is more related to our day to day operations.
May his soul rest in peace.
Never ever try to solve a problem that is not born yet. Worrying about such unborn problem steels your mental peace!
Daniel Shechtman – A Nobel laureate’s discovery in 1982 initially faced strong objections from the scientific community and he got kicked out of his research group!
But “His battle eventually forced scientists to reconsider their conception of the very nature of matter,” the academy said.
For months he tried to persuade his colleagues of his find, but they refused to accept it. Finally he was asked to leave his research group.
Prof. Shechtman returned to Israel, where he found one colleague prepared to work with him on an article describing the phenomenon. The article was at first rejected, but finally published in November 1984 to uproar in the scientific world. Double Nobel winner Linus Pauling was among those who never accepted the findings.
“He would stand on those platforms and declare, ‘Danny Shechtman is talking nonsense. There is no such thing as quasicrystals, only quasi-scientists,” Prof. Shechtman said.
Note: Even highly educated people like Linus Pauling, Shechtman’s colleagues and scientific community are misguided by human Ignorance and Negativity!
My bottom line is – If some one believes in something try to encourage him at least don’t try to oppose him – ridiculing others belief is not our business and he has every right to express/propagate what he think is right!
Its worth mentioning a saying: At first they ridicule you, later they oppose you, and finally they accept you!
