He even made American Express card commercials because of it! However, success doesn’t come without hard work and a sacrifices. His book , High Adventure, reveals all the challenges and trials he has to go thru before finally accomplishing the great feat.

In 1952 he attempted to climb Mount Everest, but failed. A few weeks later a group in England asked him to address its members. Hillary walked on stage to a thunderous applause. The audience was recognizing an attempt at greatness, but Edmund Hillary saw himself as a failure. He moved away from the microphone and walked to the edge of the platform. He made a fist and pointed at a picture of the mountain. He said in a loud voice, Mount Everest, you beat me the first time, but I’ll beat you the next time because you’ve grown all you are going to grow… but I’m still growing!

Life don’t have to be complicated

Ok, I guess i should put it another way….

Life can be complicated at times,
But happiness can be really simple.

Change your thoughts and you change your world
Lighten your load and move to where you want to be,
embrace forgiveness,
abandon all resentments
walk away from all anxieties,
let go of the needs to always prove you are right,
throw your heart over the fence and the rest will follow…

Remember that laughter is like an instant vacation,
Always enjoy the little things in life,
for one day you may look back and realize they were big things

And always be kind…. in the words of Mother Teresa

Everybody can understand kindness,
Even the blind can see it and the deaf hear it.

 

In this life, we cannot always do great things,

but we can always do small things with great love.

Who decides my future?

Its so funny how often we have a great business idea, or an excellent business plan …. only to be influenced by negative people around us, who keeps poisoning us how it cannot be done. And very often, these are the friends and people we are close to or mixed with daily or frequently.  They are discouraging not because they want to harm us, but to keep us safe and sound.

Ever happen to you? When you get passionate about something, when your inner self , your higher self , your gut instincts tells you that this is the one you have been waiting for all this time, only to be shower with cold rain water from a close friend or dear one.

I have a sudden awakening…. my future belongs to me. And no one, who’s never done it should ever rob me of my dreams and tell me whether its possible or not, ever again.

Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great make you feel that you, too, can become great. ……. Mark twain

The future belongs to those who prepare for it today. And I know the best way to predict the future is to create it.
