Guest Post by Megha Shah: Hustle Your Way to the Finish Line (Vita. Consilio. 03.21.17)

Over the last few years, if there is anything I have learned, it is that there is no such thing as ‘luck’.

Luck is just an excuse made by those who are unwilling to work but wish to achieve all the success there is.

No Better Teacher (365 Days of Spirited Living – DAY 217)

No Better Teacher

“It is fine to celebrate success, but it is more important to heed the lessons of failure.”
— Bill Gates

“The phoenix must burn to emerge.”
— Janet Fitch

Failure happens. It happens to all of us, even the best of us. The thought of not achieving one’s desired goals is a scary fact of life. It is an idea that we could well do without. But in embracing the opportunity and freedom to succeed in life, the opportunity and freedom to fail is also willfully available. Many people avoid failure to the neglect of the possibility that they could succeed. Sometimes, success is found after many failed attempts at doing something.

You can light another candle after the storm comes and knocks the first one out, or you can sit in darkness. It’s all about your perspective. Read more…
