You can only become truly accomplished at something you love. Don’t make money your goal. Instead pursue the things you love doing and then do them so well that people can’t take their eyes off of you.
— Maya Angelou 

not your fault

It is not your fault if you fail.  you are made up of billions of cells.  it is their fault
the fault in our cells


when a piece of dialogue just appears in your head out of nowhere
and you don’t even know who the characters are
but they’re dialoguing and they’re upset or angry and they’re saying things and perhaps there’s been some deceit or misunderstanding and it’s all very passionate
and they’re so so alive
and you’re like
who are you people >:o

Meg Ryan's character

I always have a thought in my mind. "People have achieved many things by the time they were of my age, but I have not even figured out what I am good at... Or am I even good at any thing?" This thought made me miss something in life. It was then I met Meg Ryan  in the movie 'My mom's new Boy friend". When I saw her , I realized age is no barrier to look young !!! I might have learnt this fact from any movie. But I figured it out in that one. The Energy you get when you believe in yourself is amazing.

I have seen her in many other movies (You have got mail , In the land of women etc ). Being a teenager , I am a fan of Kristen Stewart. I mean who is not after watching Twilight?. But Meg in the character Sarah in "In the land of women" tapped my heart more than Kristen.

Recently I watched,"Kate and Leopold". That is when I decided  I need to write this short post. In all her characters, I see something... I see me. But I really cannot figure out what "it" is that I see in me or her characters. Though it is not explainable , it makes me feel happier and allows me to have a shot at life.

Just to be sure, this tiny post is about how her characters look like to me and not her real life :)

"Early Impressions are hard to eradicate from Mind" -Jerome

Try answering these questions.
1) When I last bought n automobile, was the credibility of the salesperson important to me?
2) When I last chose a bank, a physician, or a veterinarian, did the reputation affect my choice?
3) When I visited my child's school, how long did it take to get an impression of his or her teachers?

The first sixty seconds of encounter with a stranger are more lasting!!!There is much truth in this adage that we never get a second chance to make first impression.Humans are social beings. We exist in  world where our social experiences, that is our relationship with others, form the essence of our lives.Give your best every day.

Be Mentally prepared. Many coaches say to their athletes "Get your heads straight". This same advice holds true for becoming influential.Your vision should describe what you re seeking and the contributions you hope to make to others in reaching it.

Also be spiritually prepared.Influential people are those who remain at peace. They have faith in GOD and also in themselves.Boost your spirituality by encouraging others and by personal prayer so you can put your best foot forward.

You must also be physically prepared. Eat proper diet and get enough physical exercise.Your appearance can be your best asset or your worst liability when you interact with people.Even your handshake will project volumes about you.It might not be fair.But it is practical.Remember that you will be making impressions with everyone you meet and you never know what group of people can help you reach your life vision or goal.

Next is to be socially prepared. The more friends you have, the more is the chance of influencing people.
Smiles, good listening sills and Thank yous become valuable tools in socializing process.

People who help others are productive and likable.Again recognize that the first 60 seconds are important.
