No matter how perfect the situation is, winning still needs performance
Some people never forget us, Erika is one such beautiful friend. I often quote that, she has ‘Kind’ in her name so, what else can we say. She is an all-rounder, you must visit her blog to get a feel of what I mean. She has offered me an Interview tag recently.
So, here are the rules:
* Mention the person who tagged you
* Answer the questions in full
* Don’t forget to tag up to ten other bloggers at the end
Here is my take on the questions:
How did you get into blogging?
New country, new mission, and new turmoils of my life couldn’t have been more fruitful. I have always been aware of my love for writing but, my laziness always turns out to be the champ.When the turbulence of my mind crossed a level of saturation, I resorted to my true love i.e. writing. In just over 10 months, it has exceeded my expectations.
What advice would you give to a blogger just starting out?
just pour your heart out. Target the hearts, numbers would follow.
What would be your dream campaign?
Cook a new food item every day, and fill the world with food
Do you have a plan for your blog?
Planning kills the fun. It’s good to be impulsive in these matters. I like controlling the sails in an open sea, let’s see where the boat takes me.
What do you think about rankings?
Rankings with well-defined and specific parameters gives us a good idea about the quality. However, one should not trust them blindly.
I would like to nominate following bloggers for this tag:
“Dude! You look like David Beckham”
And the dude in question soars to the skies. The dude may choose to hide his inner emotions, but he can’t deny the happiness within his mind and heart. Even if he hides his emotions, he is going to try and recreate the same magic, and work towards living the compliment. This is the beauty of appreciation. I am still learning the art of responding to compliments. There is nothing wrong with the comparison to Beckham, but I see perceive it in a different way. One question that comes to my mind is: ‘Whom did Beckam choose to imitate?’, and the spontaneous answer is ‘No-one’. Amidst the glory of compliments, we forget the basics of stardom.
“True heroes never looked like anyone, but they created their own benchmarks”
Let us try to dig deeper into the stardom of guys like Beckham, or Christiano Ronaldo etc. What if Ronaldo was still in Santo António, not known to the world as a champion footballer? There is no way he could have gained the limelight of this intensity. This brings us to the core of the issue, he made himself through his skills and hard work. He chose to focus on his work, became good at it, and that gave rise to his fame.
“Fame should never be the objective, it is just a byproduct of the rewards for hard work”
We are often told to follow a fixed path, and we forget our originality. What worked for someone, may not work for you. There is nothing wrong is using someone’s life as a template, but we should not try to imitate that step-by-step. The conditions which prevailed during his rise, the mentality and situation, cannot be recreated. It’s good to use these personalities as an inspiration, but do not try to follow their track. If someone gained millions from mutual funds, you cannot recreate the market situation to gain the same amount. The best way, is to find what works for you. Mark your strengths, guard your weaknesses.
“Don’t follow anyone, lay your own path and lead the way”
When I look back at the past 23 years of my life, a lot of actions look silly. That means that I have become wiser with time. This is how life improves us, it is like a natural process of evolution of our personalities. There is no such thing like rejection, always believe that the ones who did not choose you were the ones who didn’t deserve you.
“If you really want to become a high-flying bird, do not fall in love with the trees of the ground“
on the final day of this challenge, I thought of experimenting with the way to write a quote . I would like to give a proportionality equation to get an idea about one’s quality of life:
Q∝ 1/ T
Q= Quality of life
T= Total time spent on social media websites (in hours)
This leads us to the following quote:
“Quality of life is inversely proportional to the total time spent on social media websites“
