Do It - Once Again

I have enjoyed lot of Vivek comedies, which of late are a lot more meaningful and informative. Recently I watched the “Koffee with Anu” show (Thanks to internet and those who host these videos on their website) in which the guests were Vivek and Mayilsami “Chandrayan” Annadurai. The show was very interesting. But what stood out at the end of the show was the message that Vivek gave. One simple mantra to encompass the meaning of several statements of advice. We have heard of all these : “Success comes to the one who never stops trying”, “It is not important how many times you fall, but what is important is how many times you get up after a fall”, “Try, try and try again”, stories of Gajini Mohammed and mulla stories of how the person who tried the 100th time succeeded over the person who gave up after the 99th attempt. But all these stories in 4 short words “Do it – Once Again”. I was awed by the simplicity of the statement and wanted to share it in my blog.

On a lighter vein, even if I am the only regular reader of my blog as of now, I am not going to stop posting here and am going to keep doing it once again each day ;-) with a hope to have many readers some day!!!

First, who say you are the only one reading the blog? :)

Second, no doubt that success comes to people who tirelessly try and follow their passion, but I always wonder where "necessity" fits into this formula. For example, if I am the primary breadwinner for my family and my passion is arts, should I choose to follow my heart or take a mundane job to put food on the table? It would be ideal to do both, but if I have to choose one? Not that I am saying we should not try and personally I feel nothing is an excuse to not try (even necessity, yes) but just always wondered when to call it quits when life happens?

I'd say that one must never call it quits. Even if one cannot follow their passion, there still is an arena to succeed - your job. Do what it takes to succeed there!! Chase excellence and success will follow.
But life is just not fair to provide an opportunity for everyone to go behind their passions. Nevertheless I'd also say that one should never give up on their passion too. When life presents an chance, try to make it into their job 'cause I think those who succeeded had their passions as their profession!!
