The Survival

Once the monkey is off the back you are free!!!!! That is exactly what happens once you finish the draft of you post   and click the  “post it “ button. You have officially complete the process of creating an blog and started  your journey  as a blogger. As I have just accomplished the same,there are numerous thoughts on what topic should I pick  to write my second post…. Travel , food, experience, hoppy , work life , clothing etc….  there is so much to write about and there is the freedom to write too.There definitely is going to be a good fight before I finish drafting my second post.

After much thought the most apt topic to write on was the thought itself. SURVIVAL . The  strive, the pain , the hardships are all forgotten once we achieve the goal or succeed .  Though we always say in our thank you speeches “ I worked very hard to succeed “, but is success the only reason we fought the battle. No we fought the battle to survive, we mastered the act of survival and that is when we pulled our shoes and aimed for success

Success is sweet, powerful  and  satisfying . Eventually it will come to all of us. Whereas  survival is a trait which separates the doers from the quitters. It is the driving force for us to hope for a better tomorrow and live the moment with respect.

In the business world , when  we decide to venture out  to try something new, we analyze the conditions, the possible outcomes, the investments, do the  market research . However on the very top of our checklist will be to  analyze the risks, we try to understand whether we will be able to survive in spite of a failure if  and when it occurs. A lot of deal of money is spent on risk management  alone.

Nobody likes to loose but everyone wants to survive. Deny it  if you want but that is a fact. When we hit the rock bottom, we do everything possible to just survive and then take drastic measure to succeed, because we know we can’t survive for a long time if the situation continues. That is by theory when you see so many success stories coming from people and places you least expected.

With the hope that  I will survive to write many more posts and  the self-assurance that inspite of the criticism or failure which is a part and parcel of life , I will be able to sustain and succeed …..
