Roll back in your time machine ( That’s a bit of a starter )to, 7th December 1999,California, Bill gates the CEO of Microsoft Corp, was speaking about revolutionizing technology, he coined “ The digital media revolution “, featuring the use of digital audio and video as the next major wave of internet computing. He spoke of establishing a blend of innovative technologies and industry partnerships to make digital media revolution a reality in the home, the workspace and everywhere in between. A transformed hand held multipurpose device. Mobile phones had already hit the market with call functions. But this was something new, a proposal which was then considered the biggest of all those “off the book “challenges that Microsoft put to the rest of the business world , with success of windows 98 Gates was running good laps and turning the screws tight, Had Microsoft pulled this one ,it would stamp its position in the wall street being the top shot company ever , And by a large margin they were still the winning horses , and this was the biggest challenge in front of one man! He was rebuilding his lost empire, he had performed well in bits and pieces, but he needed a big hit. He believed himself to be the most creative man on earth
On January 8, 2007, at the MAC world expo in San Francisco, CEO of apple Inc., and Steve jobs speaks “Today, we’re introducing three revolutionary products. The first one is a widescreen iPod with touch controls. The second is a revolutionary mobile phone. And the third is a breakthrough Internet communications device. So, three things: a widescreen iPod with touch controls, a revolutionary mobile phone, and a breakthrough Internet communications device. An iPod, a phone, and an Internet communicator. An iPod, a phone…are you getting it? These are not three separate devices. This is one device. And we are calling it iPhone. Today, Apple is going to reinvent the phone.
And this was a shocker for all!! I mean, they just shook the market. Well today Jobs is no more, but the legacy he set stands tall and speaks for him. Remember he was the same man who was thrown out of his own company. And it took ages for Microsoft to overcome this big hit, and they never actually came up with something great until 2011 when jobs sadly left us, And until Microsoft tied up with Nokia.
Well I am not comparing Bill Gates or Steve Jobs, even with Gates it was the same, when he had spoken about easing the computing interface with GUI over command prompts the world had laughed at him too. But windows answers it all now.
Yes guys, we all look upon Bill Gates, Steve Jobs, Warren Buffet, Mark Zuckerburg, Walt Disney, Lakshmi Mittal and many more as our role models!! They are the icons of the world which we live in!! But have you ever wondered and thought , there is just one Gates, one Jobs, one Mittal, one Buffet in the world, did you ever think what made them what they are today , well wait ! I want to be a writer, someone around wants to sing, a guy draws very well, a geek who can fix up any circuit which is freaking fucked up, a guitarist who can play 3 guitars at the same time, and sing along, a girl who fancies hip-hop! Photographer who chases the wild, and that dirt racer who challenges the wind. But check them all after 5 years or 10, may be when they are 30 years old or so, they will be working in the matchbox cubicles of some firm, delivering pizzas, working as engineers, doctors, teachers, babysitting kids, working in multiplexes, workshops, grocery stores and what not. They are all successful people in their works. Responsible men and women, they take care of their families, kids, enjoy weekends. They look really happy. But have you ever noticed a tinge of wryness in the smile, that sigh when they breathe, that feeling of being the odd one In the group, yes they all have this thing, “I don’t belong here, I don’t know what I am doing, I don’t like my job “, Yes you don’t like what you are doing, you are not satisfied with your job and life and a lot more things!! Guess why?? Simple reason on earth. You didn’t become what you wanted to become , you didn’t listen what your heart wanted , you didn’t trust your instincts, you were afraid , well you may have excuses , but they don’t count in this world
Then what was that thing which separates them from us??? What was it that made them successful people that they are today, was it sheer luck? Was it grace? Was it destiny? May be!! But that’s one way of thinking.
SUVARNA PUSHPAMIVA PRITHVIM CHINVANTHI PURUSHASTRAYAHA,SHOORACHA KRITHAVIDHYASCHA YASHCHA JAANATHI SEVITHUM (Earth is a golden flower , and it can be owned by three kinds of people , the one who is brave , the one who is knowledgeable and the one who serves mankind”). And this is my way of thinking about it.They didn’t do anything in different, they did things differently. They trusted their instincts, they trusted their pulses and impulses, and did what their heart asked them to do, they had done their homework. Spent countless number of nights thinking, reassessing things ,changing plans , listening to the heart beats of the target customers, collecting Intel on what the market situation was , what would the future have for them, what were the problems to expect and how to overcome them. They did what was imagined to be a fantasy into “slap on face “reality .Things twist themselves around the horizons of impossibility. All that it takes is perseverance to hold on in the toughest of the times, where your belief is your only hope there is no shortcut for success, there is no wildcard which guarantees it, and if you are not successful the world is going to laugh at you. You are going to be a symbol of something shameful, but make your choices, do you live your life for people who laugh or the people who love you and trust you?? Do you care for people who don’t mean anything in life?? Well if you do care, remember. These are the same hands which you are going to shake if you are successful! These are the same hands which clap when you win. Decide what you want in life and work towards it .Be truthful to yourself and do what your heart asks you to do. success will start following you, Well the road for success is not simple , it’s going to be painful, it’s going to test you ,it’s going to punish you, you are going to melt to the heat ,shed down to the pressure , You need a heart built by concrete to force yourself against the incoming brutal attacks .There would be times where death seems the only way out, you cry, you sweat, you bleed , Well that’s what separates men from boys!!.Every swish of the whip should be a new learning, every cut should be a new building, and every rejection, every laugh, every annoying comment, should be your fuel! Every morning should be a new beginning, Every moment should be a battle!! Fight it!! Prove the metal of a man you are.
Just look at this for an example, I all give you mine, I want to write, Yes I am afraid, I am afraid of being a failure, when I thought that I would start a blog, I had to compete with 164 million other bloggers who already exist, and the new ones who add up daily, there are these legendary people whose blogs get shot up with likes and fan following seconds after they are posted online, there are these premium sites and “ Pay me ,I will launch you “ sites , there are these promoters , who make the links to your blogs available to the world, popularize it, There are people with God fathers … I know I am hunting in the wild, I know I am competing ,or should I put it , I am fighting with these 164 million unknown faces, some of them have swords, some have grenades , some have nuclear warheads, some have super heroes, while I am still searching for a weapon to fight! Yes I am afraid!!! I agree I don’t know where am I going to land, I don’t know how long will I keep this fire burning in my heart, But all that I know, is that until I live, But I believe in myself, I know, I can make people like what I write, I know I can inspire people with my words, I don’t mind if I am fighting alone in this battle, I would die, But it’s better than showing my back to this competition and running away. And a final word! I am here to make a name for myself, join with me to embrace a new beginning, or stay there, it doesn’t matter… All that I really know is that I love writing, I love inspiring people ,and like to see them grow up as I grow, And if by any chance I am able to ignite the flames of fury, enthusiasm in at least one person who reads this, I would consider it an achievement within itself.
