Life's Lessons - Never Give Up

I had watched many times the video clip of the 1992 Olympics - the forecasted champion Derek Redmond who ultimately finished not second, not third but last with his father's help.

He would not have been able go beyond the spot where his muscle injury worsened.

Wondering how Derek's farther came in to his performing arena - the Olympic track?

This story has moved many and today I was thinking, what if my late father who died in 1979 was yet living in 2008, when I was made to decide to resign from a job of 32 years.

Would he have jumped in to the pits!!

The movie can be seen here:

Focus for Better Self-Realisation

I have read a little more than the average individual -  also it is no mere under-statement too.

I read the the book "Power of Focus" more than a decade and a half ago.

It was only when I got to know and understand the work of Dr. Mani Sivasubramanian, I became slowly another person in the quest for knowledge to be of service to others.

I am on my way now - gaining focus.

I will strive to make it an interesting read,

It is no wonder that a statement made by the late JFK about being of service to others yet stands ground so steadfastly.

Retirement Reversal

I was a Flight Attendant for 32 yeras and out of which, for 16 of those years, I was training the same crowd.
The Airline did win a couple of major awards by various International Aviation & Travel related bodies.

How it may have occured, is a no brainer - in it's 30 year history, it had not rivaled any of the Top Ten Blue Chips in it's own country even at the national level.

I resigned from the job one year ago in 2008, after realizing the difference between earning for a living and earning to make a life.

Incidentally, I was 54 years of age having being born in 1954 - hence I decided to use the pseudonym - justfun54.

I became aware of Dr mani's Think, Write and Retire e course, which I have purchased.

I am glad on both the decisions I did make - resigning from a job six years earlier than I should have,and also to have begun on the e course of Dr. Mani.

I have to confess that only 5% of the people who embark on the internet succced - yes, it is a slow trek for me - I do not have a URL as yet.

And this is my first blog entry on 31st August 2009.

I know that even motivational gurus go through a slump - once in a while.

Pray that I will be able to make it - at least I know of some thing called a Purpose - now.

Proud I was able to say a final good-bye to the visions & missions of an eight to five cooperate life.
