#ThinkAboutIt - It's More Than Just Coffee

First, it's also persistence.

Howard Schultz, in trying to raise private equity money, was turned down 224 times. That's a lot of rejection! Most of us give up on something after three failures or rejections. Some even do after giving things a try only once, a horrible thing to even think about.

The Most Important Letter in Your Pursuit of Your Dreams

Last year, my new life began to slowly unfold itself. An image of my dream materialised when the first draft of my upcoming novel was completed. My blogging hopped on a roller coaster ride of experimentation: changes, reversion, temporary halt, and additions. My life purpose, vision, mission, and dreams reshaped themselves after walking the path of knowing oneself. I felt on top of the world, figuratively, yearning to scream my excitement in a new found life I had. Then something stabbed me in the back, an unforeseen reality that threatened to turn my nirvana into despair, disappointment, and descent. I watched my friends and family ignore my dreams and me, their silence as painful like a knife to a heart. I felt crushed, I cried, and I cried.

  • my dream
  • my upcoming novel
  • my blogging

  • my nirvana
  • my friends and family
  • I felt on top of the world
  • I had (new found life)
  • I watched
  • I felt crushed
  • I cried

Let's apply some equality. If my = I (my is equals to I), what do the phrases above have in common?
