When we start caring too much about how other people think about us, we stop being innovative and creative. This is not something new. You must have heard this before or chances are that you yourself have been guilty of doing the same. According to Seth Godin, the best-selling author, what holds us back and stops us from climbing the heights is not the “fear of failure” but the “fear of criticism”.
Rejection. Losing. Failure. Nobody strives for them. Do you? No athlete sets out to lose, no entrepreneur’s goal is bankruptcy. But as if an act of divine mercy, there are positives to be found in the negatives. In fact, successful people often preach as Gospel the value found in failure. Denis Waitley said it well - “Failure should be our teacher, not our undertaker. Failure is a delay, not defeat. It is a temporary detour, not a dead end. Failure is something we can avoid only by saying nothing, doing nothing and being nothing.” The mark of a successful person lies in their response to negative situations. They lick their wounds but stay on the battlefield. They find strength in their scars.

Make it your mission to make someone happy! Winter always seems to bring back all good and bad memories. The holiday season and the New Year! Sometimes, they make us nostalgic and that's what I'm feeling right now. Everything is starting to look grey and I feel blue. Yes, even I'm human and I don't everytime be positive and mind glowingly awesome. I don't feel bad sharing about this either. It's a natural phase, I suppose. So now, simply sitting here and feeling nostalgic and weary, I've decided to share some joy so that my heart smiles remembering this day and when I look at it this way, I'm already smiling. It makes me happy just to share more and more cheerfulness. Spreading more sunshine and warmth this cold season! Anyway, the reason behind my mood, I thought as I was feeling a little blue because of the on-going rubbish weather, I would try to make myself think of 25 things that would cheer me up.
