The RACE is ON

Gone are the days when we believed that slow and steady wins the race.Now its all about running fast. We all are part of the rat race. Just that these days the rats are becoming highly competitive and very fast.

They tell me ‘you are trying to run too fast’. Yes, I am. I am running to win. I am not on a marathon. It’s a sprint. And the only way to win is to run too fast. Yes I will fall, but the additional speed would have given me enough time to recover and join the race again.I might not enjoy the journey. Yes , I know. But I am more interested in enjoying the destination. My journey never mattered to me.

And mind it guys, its not easy. Cause I definitely see some rats in the race that have an advantage. They are either running a relay where the baton is passed or some other way. A few rats are more beautiful from the female gender and use it as an advantage. Yes, we all know men are dogs and these dogs are helping the beautiful rats. These rats have also known their importance and are using these dogs to the fullest. And did I mention the lucky rats. Yes, I do consider myself lucky but some are just luckier than me.

Now when the race is against all these, I have to run fast. I might get tired at times but I need to continue running. I might feel dejected and low but I have to continue running. I am not going to lose so soon and so easily. I know I am paying the cost but hopefully its gonna be worth it.

And did I mention that in all these races, I am also running a race to be among the good bloggers. And for that your feedback is important guys. So please comment more, suggest more and if you like it spread it more.

The 'Negativity'

I know the first few thoughts that come into your mind looking at the title of the post. The blog comes after a month and look at the depressing topic or why can't he write on something else other than negatives of life. Well I have a few answers.

Is it not already so much around us? The negative vibes, the negative feelings, the negative actions. Its there in your personal life, in your corporate life, in your relationships..everywhere. Then why do we run away from it. Why do we still feel we do not want to read on negative thoughts or watch negative movies. We hate movies where we are not entertained. We would love the silly romance where in the end our hero finally gets all that he wants. Real life is different than reel life.Its time we realize that yes negativity is a part of our life. let's for once accept it. Face it. Feel it. Admit to it.No more running away from it.

I had once read ' the only way to solve a problem is by facing it and not running away from it'. With this post all i want is people to realize that running away is not the answer. And there are many places where we don't. When we talk about corporate culture we feel and see the negativity but we cannot run. Cause it pays. We accept it for money. But that attitude of accepting has to be everywhere. Lets accept all those people around us who play games with us, betray us, force us to think negative. Cause only after i accept or admit you in my life , will i be able to fight you.

There is one more reason why i want people to read it.It helps to know that you are not the only person who is suffering from negativity. It surely helps me. So get ready boss, tighten your belt and be ready to fight.

And for people who know me, i know i don't come up to you as a depressed soul the way i portrayed in few posts. But then i need to remove my negativity and frustration somewhere. And one of my good friend had asked me to start writing for the same reason. The way the posts are is the same way life is. At times positive and at times negative. Let us share both. Accept both. And live up to all that is offered.
