Video: Famous Failures

Greetings ppl!
"It comes easy for him." This quote is heard about many successful personalities.

Yes, maybe because "They continued where others left off".

Many a times I try to keep my tongue/thoughts in check, before repeating the same thought about any1. You dont know their life story nor do you want to Live it.

Please check this video. Its about some of the "Famous Failures". I saw it on a friends Facebook profile & googled to find out more about it :

IF you have never Failed, you have never Lived!

Life=Risk


Its description says:

Sometimes we look at people who have achieved a great deal of success and we wrongly think that everything must come easy for them. This powerful video illustration takes us inside some the greatest failures of all time so we can see the perseverance needed for them to achieve ultimate success. Abraham Lincoln, Lucille Ball, Walt Disney and Michael Jordan are success stories that first began with failure. This video illustration shows how failure fueled them to achieve beyond anyone’s expectations. If you’ve never failed, you’ve never lived.

Change: Good or bad

Hi Good day ppl !
The song lyrics posted in the last post: You gotta be bad, you gotta be bold
are apt for this post. Read on to determine what toad you are ;)

Various biological studies have shown that if a toad is placed in a container along with water from his own pond, he will remain there, utterly still, while the water is heated, even when the water reaches boiling point. The toad does not react to the gradual increase in temperature and dies when the water boils.

Fat and happy.

On the other hand, if a toad is thrown into that container when the water is already boiling, he will jump straight out again, scalded, but alive!

Sometimes we behave like the boiled toads. We do not notice changes. We think that everything is fine and that anything bad in our lives will simply go away - that it's just a matter of time. We are close to death, but still we sit, unchanging and apathetic, while the water around us gets hotter by the minute. We end up dying, fat and happy, without having noticed the changes going on around us.

Boiled toads do not understand that, as well as being efficient (doing things right), they need to be effective (doing the right things). And for this to happen, there must be continual growth, with room for dialogue and clear communication, room to share and to plan and to build an adult relationship. The biggest challenge lies in having the humility to respect someone else's views.

There are, however, boiled toads who still believe that the most important thing is obedience, not competence: those who can, lead, but those with any sense, obey. And where does this leave real life? It is far better to emerge from a situation slightly scalded, but still alive and ready to act.

Bye. tc. Have a great week!

You gotta be bad, you gotta be bold ;)

Hiiii Good Day ppl,

One more song's lyrics for you'll. This one ask you all to be Bad,bold instead of be patient, calm,... ;)
Love will save the day


Listen as your day unfolds
Challenge what the future holds
Try and keep your head up to the sky
Lovers, they may cause you tears
Go ahead release your fears
Stand up and be counted
Don't be ashamed to cry




You gotta be bad, you gotta be bold,you gotta be wiser, you gotta be hard, you gotta be tough, you gotta be stronger
You gotta be cool, you gotta be calm
You gotta stay together
All I know, all I know, love will save the day

Herald what your mother said
Readin' the books your father read
Try to solve the puzzles in your own sweet time
Some may have more cash than you
Others take a different view
my oh my heh, hey

You gotta be bad, you gotta be bold,you gotta be wiser, you gotta be hard, you gotta be tough, you gotta be stronger
You gotta be cool, you gotta be calm
You gotta stay together
All I know, all I know, love will save the day

Time asks no questions, it goes on without you
Leaving you behind if you can't stand the pace
The world keeps on spinning, can't stop it if you try to
This part is danger staring you in the face
oh oh oh
Remember

Listen as your day unfolds
Challenge what the future holds
Try and keep your head up to the sky
Lovers, they may cause you tears
Go ahead release your fears
My oh my heh, hey, hey

You gotta be bad, you gotta be bold,you gotta be wiser, you gotta be hard, you gotta be tough, you gotta be stronger
You gotta be cool, you gotta be calm
You gotta stay together
All I know, all I know, love will save the day


Some sane & practical thougths ! You cant be a saint & precher all time. Be the common man & keep 'Trying', you'll get there some day!!! Wat say? :)


Bye. T.c.
