Life is a roller coaster ride. It gives you jerks at the most unexpected of times.We then try to explain them, justify them but rarely try to accept and then react to them.We act on impulse and most of the times keep proving Newton's law that every action has an equal and opposite reaction. Needless to say the outcome depends on the reaction.So is it not so very important to react wisely? Yes it is.

Imagine being lost in the woods. There would be different reactions from different people. Some would cry, some would scream for help,some would fall prey to the predators,some would perish out of starvation etc etc...mostly all of them would have one thing in common;the fast engulfing fear and what would that lead to? Inactivity of brain or rather inability to think clearly. Very few peoplewould hold on to their faith and thinking power,but the ones who would do, would be the ones who would keep on exploring one way after the other, relentlessly, till they actually find it.

Similarly in life , we need to keep exploring our selves,our hearts. We should keep asking ourselves the purpose of our wants, desires and goals . Then we could set out to find ways to fulfill them, achieve them.The ways need to be constantly evaluated,explored. We would find many ways that may not lead to our destination, but the people who keep on evolving in this process of search start transforming their own lives. The ones who set out with faith in themselves, take the failures as new things learnt ,thus getting enriched in their knowledge leading to clearer paths with clearer vision.Each fall gives them a new bounce. Bigger the fall higher the bounce. And this bounce adds to their courage and strength.Higher the bounce higher they reach in their lives. But most importantly their transformed lives make them a much better and stronger person.

As they say and rightly so , the person who has seen the most failures ,has a higher probability to success for the simple reason that he has done away with more of his share of failures .Actually what differentiates the super achievers from others is, the unmatched number of failures indicating so much higher frequency in putting in efforts and also so many paths experienced hence a substantial increase in knowledge add. In the process the fear to fail disappears and the excitement to dare tread unknown grounds and explore ,takes place. His enriched life has wonderful pads to absorb greater shocks and living becomes so much more meaningful...purposeful.

Then as they say the journey of life itself becomes so much exhillarating ,enriching and rewarding than the destination itself for they have learnt the power of BOUNCE.


  1. There's a very famous Michael Jordan quote that you will relate to :)

    I've missed more than 9000 shots in my career. I've lost almost 300 games. Twenty-six times I've been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I've failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed.

  2. Absolutely true....and this is what is the power of Bounce.....
