…. IMAGINATION IS MORE IMPORTANT THAN KNOWLEDGE….

Albert Einstein

Walt Disney, the man who gave us Mickey Mouse, the man who helped craft our imaginations and install these beliefs, values and morals that impacted us significantly, making us the better person we are today – without him where would we be? Who would we be? Walt Disney failed 302 times to transform his vision: Mickey Mouse, Disney World to reality. Failure does not mean “game over”. It means try again. You are a diamond. You are fragile and have your unique voice to bring to this world. You are hard to attain – it is not so simple to purchase a diamond – it is not so simple for someone to recognize your talent. Just like a diamond increases its monetary value as years go by, you increase your value by continuously growing yourself: by embarking on opportunities, learning from your mistakes, and aiming to push harder the next time. Yes, there is always a next time! When someone rejects you – never question your self-worth – it just means you are expensive and they could never afford your price tag.

  1. Amazing blog! Do you have any suggestions for aspiring writers? I’m planning to start my own website soon but I’m a little lost on everything. Would you suggest starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many choices out there that I’m completely overwhelmed .. Any suggestions? Thanks a lot!

    1. Thank You!
      You can totally go for a free option initially if you do not care about the domain but if you want it to be branded from the beginning, a basic paid plan would work fine!
