An article on Motivation

Hai friends. Once in my company, I was asked to write an article on "Motivation" by my predecessors. They said this article will be provided to my successors and hence the article should be upto that extent.

But i have no experience of writing such articles before. I tried upto my level and completed the article with the help of my room-mate. I like to share that article with you. Do read the article and find whether it is worth enough to motivate the reader(yourself).

The article on motivation is as follows:

As per the saying of Dr.A.P.J.AbdulKalam "Self-Learning is the pre-requisite of great undertakings". One should emphasize greatly on the way he/she conceive and conclude things. Learning is an arrow and its target is knowledge. So the way it is carried out holds the key. This key not only opens the door of knowledge, but also of success. "Carrying out" as such is not a simple phrase; it needs a ton of homework to balance the weight. Planning, preparation and peddling the preparation, peels the hurdles in search of knowledge.

Planning needs a great contemplation on the destination or goals. Goals are the sense of direction and they thrive us towards action. Once you fix your goal, your commitment to achieve it is the next, but the big step is in reaching it. Everyone can ask questions, but the one who has the real commitment to find the answer gets it. Sincere, serious, systematic steps surely secure the supreme success.

Preparation and commitment treads on the same line with great difference. Commitment is persisting with your aim even when you don't know how to prepare. Preparation is the side door of commitment, only when you are committed you will prepare. But to touch the cup of success is not easy without two gross of toil and sweat, which in-turn are the only products of preparation and commitment.

When you are walking along the path to your destination, the milestones/objectives are the moral boosts. They guide and persuade us. They are like the smell of roses in the Amazon area. The travelogue of success by great personalities reflects their commitment, not in reaching their destination but their objectives. Objectives without action are empty dreams. You get nothing out of them. But the actions squeeze the inner soul out of you. It has the pain which often scruples you. To overcome such hurdles, one needs the maturity at its superlative.

An ancient Indian sage was teaching his disciples the art of archery. He put a wooden bird as the target and asked them to aim at the eye of the bird. The first disciple was asked to describe what he saw. He said, "I see the tree, the branches, the leaves, the sky, the bird and its eye".

The sage asked this disciple to wait. Then he asked the second disciple the same question and he replied, "I only see the eye of the bird". The sage said, "Very good, then shoot". The arrow went straight and hit the eye of the bird.

What is the moral? Unless we focus, we cannot achieve our goal. It is hard to focus and concentrate, but it is a skill that can be learned.

"Winners see objective, losers see obstacles."

The above pictures the large sea-dwelling crocodile that lived 135 million years ago (i.e. in the middle of the dinosaur era). The fossil of this large crocodile was found recently by scientists.

This crocodile is distinct from other crocodiles by having long, slender snouts and a mouthful of more than 100 small sharp teeth, useful for catching fish.

Thought all should think about

The thought which attracted me at the first glance:


- George Bernard Shaw (1856-1950)

I got this thought from one of the forwarded mails that I received. I wish to share this thought with you all :-).

Go for Right Drivers

Hai, i here-by share my experience that I had with my laptop.

Recently I bought a "HP COMPAQ" laptop. The OS they gave with the laptop is "Mandrake Linux". But the vendor installed "Microsoft Windows XP" in laptop without my attention.

Since I was new to "Linux", I continued my work with "Microsoft Windows XP". Later I got internet broadband connection. First I connected my laptop with the external modem via USB port. It worked fine for me.

Later I connected my laptop with the external modem via ethernet port. Here bobbed up a problem for me. When I touched the touchpad of my laptop, the mouse-cursor moved in an un-controlled manner. I.e. I am not able to bring the cursor under my control using the touchpad.

Since I am not aware of such problems, I thought that there might be some problems with the modem given by the internet service provider.

So I contacted my internet service provider regarding this. They asked about my Laptop company name. I said them that I am using "HP COMPAQ". Hearing the company name they said there are such problems with "HP COMPAQ" laptops and they have encountered such problems in many places.

But I am not convinced with their reply. So I searched the internet regarding this problem. And I came to know that my touchpad is not configured with the right driver. Initially the touchpad was working with the default mouse driver :(.

Then I configured my touchpad with the appropriate driver. Now the mouse-cursor is under control with the touchpad while connecting the laptop with the external modem through ethernet port.

I think this might be useful for those who read this :-).
