31 Jul MY SIMPLE WAYS TO INSPIRE MYSELF
Inspirational words have always fascinated me. My passion for inspirational quotes, articles, books and even songs is indefinable. Way back in 1996, the lyrics of an inspirational song penetrated my mind with a force. I felt waves of inspiration within me. Want to share a few lines of this song:
I believe, I can fly
I believe, I can touch the sky
I think about it every night and day
Spread my wings and fly away
I believe, I can soar
I see me running through that open door
If I can see it, then I can do it
If I just believe it, there is nothing to it
I believe, I can fly
I can fly, I can fly, I can fly
Woooo …I can fly
Hmmmmm…..fly, fly, fly
FOUND IT INSPIRING ?
Must be getting curious to know the person behind this song. World famous basketball player, R. Kelly has written and performed this song.
I RECONSTRUCTED THE LYRICS AND HUM IT OFF AND ON :
Yes ! I can fly
Yes! I can fly
Yes! I can go high
Yes! I can touch the sky
Wooooo…. I am flying
Hmmmmm…..I am flying
Oh Yes! I am flying ……
Yes! I can fly literally means , Yes! I can succeed. There is abundance of talent, education and intelligence in this world. But we do not put determination and positivity in our actions to follow our dreams to enable ourselves to fly in the sky. What is the use of our dreams? What is the use of our knowledge, talent and Intelligence, when we cannot employ them in the best possible ways?
Positive attitude, will power and determination help us to reach out for the sky, an infinite area to fly. Positivity teaches us to soar like never before. We must set the targets to be achieved and develop an undying feeling to fly in the sky. We have to work hard towards achieving the targets. We will watch the dreams of flying coming alive.
Of course, we face obstacles and problems, but they would become instrumental in making us strong both mentally and physically.
Falling down while flying is not a failure. We have to learn not to fall again and start flying higher. Instead of losing patience or stop trying to succeed, we should carry ourselves forward.
WE HAVE TO MOVE AHEAD !
Thomas Alva Edison made a laboratory of his own when he was only 10 years old. Edison conducted thousands experiments till he finally invented the electric bulb. A reporter once asked him how he felt when he failed so many times. He replied that inventing a bulb was a phenomenon that involved thousands steps.
EDISON KNEW IT VERY WELL …. YES ! I CAN FLY
Merely thinking about our problem is not going to help our cause. Our problem will only grow.
Franklyn D. Roosevelt was struck with polio at the age of thirty nine. Even then his political career did not come to an end. He served as the 32nd President of the U.S.A. from 1933 until his death in 1945.
ROOSEVELT KNEW IT VERY WELL ….. YES ! I CAN FLY
There are ways to get rid of fear created by obstacles. It simply depends how we give treatment to them. Who has learned to tackle the obstacles, he will definitely succeed.
YES ! I CAN FLY
IF I JUST SPREAD MY WINGS
I CAN FLY… I CAN FLY… I CAN FLY
