Please redefine SUCCESS.
Everyone seems to strive to be successful in life. We all look to apply the Law of Attraction to gain success.
But what is success? What makes you successful, and what makes you a failure?
To answer this question, lets first take a look at our world. Our societies are completely focused on our five senses of seeing, hearing, tasting, touching and smelling. Our five senses are constantly stimulated. They are enticed and exploited all the time.
It is therefore no surprise that we tend to focus our minds on materialism 24 hours per day. We tend to focus all the time on big cars, big houses, lots of money in the bank, and so on.
There is nothing wrong with that in itself. Neither does this mean that being spiritual equals being poor and living in a dump. That doesnt make sense either. The problem is not with the material objects themselves.
After all, why would you want a lot of money, or a big house, or a big car? Why would you want others to approve of you ...more

Once - in Hindi. I just started learning Hindi at the 9th Standard (! ! ! ! !) It was a compulsory language for me. Within 6 days of joining the school I had to appear for Unit Test. Went asked the teacher to excuse me from appearing the paper and he only suggested that I try my best. I asked my classmates as to what I can do?

The suggestion was that I would get some grace marks even if I am able to fill a page with the questions [rather than any answer]

Believe me - I spent two hours by trying to copy the questions as it was more like a drawing exam to me. And I completed all of HALF A PAGE.

That was the one and the only time I ducked in a subject getting an unforgettable ZERO.

Apart from academics, there have been some failures in other aspects of my life.
