This blog post comes in the aftermath of Father’s Day and is particularly aimed at those who are repeaters ,although others would also benefit.   I shall be sharing some quotes/ videos which have helped me  in my darkest times.

There will surely be times when you feel no one understands your struggle and that it would be better to quit. That is when you need to remember-the journey of a long distance runner is always lonely. 

But sooner or later, success is won by the person who has PERSEVERANCE and DETERMINATION. Talent is a myth.  At max, the influence of talent is 10%. 90% of all success is determined by how tough you are mentally. Of course a 5 foot person should not aspire to be an NBA Basketball Player, yet for most fields of human endeavour , it will be raw grit that sees you through.

Here are some quotes which may inspire you.

You think Talent beats Luck?

1) Connor McGregor , a world famous Mixed Martial Arts fighter who has been the UFC Champion.

“There's no talent here, this is hard work. This is an obsession. Talent does not exist, we are all equal as human beings. You could be anyone if you put in the time. You will reach the top, and that is that. I am not talented, I am obsessed.”                                                                           

You hate studying  for CAT/ Working for your aspirations  and find it too tedious?

2) Muhammad Ali, The world’s greatest boxer

“I hated every minute of training. But I said ,’suffer now, and live the rest of your life as a champion”

3) Feeling low about Life? 

Watch any of the Rocky training montages you can find on Youtube. Sample here:

(I admit I like cheesy videos) :D

4) Do you think luck plays a huge role?

Then read this quote by Charles Munger, the billionaire partner of Warren Buffett”

“ The only way to ensure success is to make sure you deserve it”

5) Lastly all that we do is often inspired by our parents. Watch this heart rending video from the 1992 Olympics which tells all about Fathers, Sons, Success and Most of all NOT GIVING UP!

See this! Go, see this! 

PS: The title "Importance of Luck" was purely click bait. As I know most of you are lazy enough to believe Luck plays a huge role. Now Go! Work!
