Never Quit

Posted on

It has been a while since I posted something new here. I have written couple of book reviews but that is not part of the blog post. I was busy writing technical book titled “Learning Raspberry Pi“. Somewhere I read these lines

“If you have insights, experience and expertise that would benefit others; it’s selfish to keep it to yourself.When you think about it that way; writing is a way of contributing your gift to the world.”

I have been sharing my knowledge with the people whom I know since long but I believe by doing that I reached only certain numbers/types of people. So I decided to write a book and fortunately I got great publisher “Packt“. I don’t know how challenging it was for you ( Those who have already written a book) but for me it was quite challenging maintaining the timelines of chapters and handling the pressure of my day job. The number of revisions that each chapter goes through drains your energy. There were couple of moments when the work load in my day job was too much and I was lacking motivation to write. I almost quite at those moments but I did not. Whenever I felt low while in the process of writing book , I read the experiences of people who are best-selling author. Some of the quotes that kept me going.

“If my doctor told me I had only 6 months to live, I’d type a little faster.” – Isaac Asimov

“I want to do something splendid…
Something heroic or wonderful that won’t be forgotten after I’m dead…
I think I shall write books.”
Louisa May Alcott

Today , I feel proud of myself for not quitting. My book is available for pre-order now. As a human , we all struggle in achieving what we want and there are moments when we feel like quitting. For me it was writing book, For you , it could be starting a company , finishing college or finishing that long pending task. Whenever you feel like quitting , think about why you started. No matter what happens , never quit.

This is your life. Make it large.

I rarely watch TV but being an cricket fan, last Sunday I was watching India vs. Australia wt20. During commercial break, I saw this new ad featuring SRK in which he talks about the joy of getting things for the first time or doing something for the first time. In the end he spoke one line and that caught my attention.

This is your life. Make it large.

We humans can do most of the things we want to do but the real challenge is to be persistent. Success is not a one time thing. It is a continuous process. This theory is very well visualized in movie Rush. It is a story of two F3 drivers and their journey towards becoming F1 world champions. One got satisfied and stopped practicing after winning first title and other kept on practicing and he won several titles. The one who stopped practicing died at the age of 45 and other got worldwide recognition.

So its up to us what we want to do with our life. Either we get satisfied with one time success or we follow below quote by Steve Jobs:

I think if you do something and it turns out pretty good, then you should go do something else wonderful, not dwell on it for too long. Just figure out what’s next.

People may Hurt you , Break you but it is How you Behave that Make you.

As a human we experience something new and better everyday. We met thousands of new people in our journey of Life.  And those people are of different kind. If you could not find anything good in them then read Good people are hard to find on earth…Really???.. . And among them you find many people who tries to hurt you , tries to break you. But you should not get demotivated by them. Please do keep in mind Life never turns the way we want, but.. . You can not blame whole human culture/life  just you had bad experience with few of them. Once again I want to quote Life is beautiful. Live it, Learn it , Love it . So ever since you come to such situation , just spend some time with yourself. Read some motivational stories/article for example this . It is your reaction to the situation(people) that makes you.

Life Is Beautiful : Live It , Learn It , Love It.


Life is like a train. We all are passengers travelling in the same train. Some are enjoying the journey even in the general class while some are unhappy in spite of being in AC coach. At each station new people come into coach(Life) . We interact with them and learn from them and when their station came they left us. Instead of missing someone all the day , accept the reality. That’s Life..dear…It does not matter how much time you have spent with someone but it is the bond between two heart that keeps them always near. The one who does not accept the reality , has to suffer a lot. I want to say…..

Life Is Beautiful…….

Everything In Life Happens For A Reason……..

So…….Live It…………..

Learn It…………….

Love It………

Use Your Smile To Change The World…….

Don’t Let The World Change Your Smile………………….

It’s a sure thing that you’ll not finish if you don’t start.


An ancient proverb says, “The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.” You have probably known people nearing the end of their life’s journey who looked back and said, “If only I had done things differently. . . . If only I had taken advantage of that opportunity when it came along.” Unfulfilled lives are filled with “if only’s”. They are the refrain of the timid souls whose lives were finished before they ever really got started. Life is filled with many opportunities — for great successes and spectacular failures. It is up to you to seize the initiative, to take advantage of the opportunities that come your way. You are condemned to a life of mediocrity — unless you get into action. Don’t delay; do it today!
