WEEK IN BRIEF 29 November - 4 December, 2010

Quote for the Week
"Failure is success if we learn from it." - Malcolm Forbes

No one likes failure. It mars your self esteem, bruises your confidence and crushes your ego; it just makes you feel BAD. But then, does failure have anything to do with success?
If you analyze where you have gone wrong, the next time you will refrain from making the same mistake and will do better; then, as they say, failure will indeed become your stepping stone to success. You must also take time once in a while to take stock of your successes. That way your letdowns won’t seem so significant anymore.

WEEK IN BRIEF 15 - 20 November, 2010

Quote for the Week
"A goal without a plan is just a wish." - Antoine de Saint-Exupery

How many wishes have you made in your life? How many have come true? Wishes are akin to expectations - you wish for something and hope for the best. They are all about what you would like to have. On the other hand, goals are about what you must have; they are specific, result-oriented and mostly realistic. We often think of our target, and pave our way precisely just to reach that destination. Goals are about sweat and effort, with a dash of hope.

WEEK IN BRIEF 8 - 13 November, 2010

Quote for the Week
"A wise man will make more opportunities than he finds." - Sir Francis Bacon

A person with a goal in mind does not wait for something to happen; he makes it happen. If one has a fixed purpose or destination in mind, the path leading to it becomes clearer. His conviction makes him think little of the effort he has to put in. Of course, fate sometimes does play a decisive role in our endeavours, but you cannot always blame karma.

Opportunities come and go, but strength of mind lies in the will and ability of a person to turn any situation – good or bad – to his/her advantage.
