Dearest Darling Friends,
When J.K. Rowling was scribbling Harry Potter on a napkin while hoping her welfare checks would cover that month’s electric bill, it seemed an impossibility that one day she would be richer than the Queen of England.
Arianna Huffington was rejected 36 times before her first book was published, and well before she was told The Huffington Post would be a complete and utter failure. The Huffington Post is the most powerful news blog in the world today.
Every year, thousands compete in the Standard Chartered Mumbai Marathon (SCMM). Lot of them don’t cross the finish line. That doesn’t mean they failed the marathon. It means they ran more than they have ever done. And the year after that, many of them will run farther.
What if you are the new Mohd Ali?
What if you are the sleeping Hanuman?
What if you are the next Gandhi?
What if you are the next Steve Jobs?
What if you are the new JRD Tata?
What if you are the next Michael Phelps?
What if you are the next Leonard Cohen
(Poet and singer-songwriter best known for his composition ‘Hallelujah’) ?
Come on my darlings…allow yourself to flirt with greatness. Our goals are only set by our own limits, and nothing else. How would you know, your walk to greatness began at the last turn? What do you think will happen if you believe in yourself a little more?
JK Rowling did.
Arianna Huffington did.
The SCMM participants did.
What will happen if you too did?
Would love to know your thoughts…
With love, prayers and exceptional wishes,
Imagine, when we wake up, we are given only what we had thanked for.
