Motivation and Inspiration, I am not sure about the exact difference between the two, But for me both are important. OK forget that..! Happy reading..!
I am writing this post coz I was inspired to complete my assignment after I failed to figure out the answers of at least 4 qns in fluid mechanics for 2 days. It meant so much to me and made me remember a day almost 14months back.
Seventh semester Anna university examination was going on, and the next exam for me was FEA(Finite element analysis) It is a numerical technique to solve hard problems, lets not get too technical… So I had to go home 2 days before the exam for some purpose. I was back to my house in Coimbatore(Tamil nadu) with almost 48 hours before exam.
I was complacent, disinterested, “who cares” attitude on my head. I was unprepared, It was like, if i don’t start studying, am going to fail! Still, I was playing computer games, chatting, browsing, then suddenly this wallpaper popped up, It was the wallpaper of the movie 8mile(starring Eminem), I had not seen the movie, and I still haven’t seen it. But the words on the poster moved me. A new hope, a sudden rush of energy filled me. I jumped and was preparing till the examination and scored pretty well for my efforts.
the poster is
“Every moment is another chance” That single line made such an impact me on that day, I really felt some heavenly force was helping me out.
In this week, to be precise Wednesday after hard toil on Monday and Tuesday, I was still struggling to find solutions to the assignment problems on fluid mechanics, which made me reach on the verge of “giving up”. Then suddenly, I saw a quote, which was written by me on some random paper last semester. The words were, It created almost the same effect..!
“You will never fail until you give up”
Ok.! I was like, no matter what, I am not going to give up..! I sat there, found solutions to all the problems, it was so heartwarming that..
I was like “YES.., I DID IT..!”
I would like to add one more story into this post( stolen..lolz..)
Footprints in the Sand
One night I dreamed I was walking along the beach with the Lord. Many scenes from my life flashed across the sky.
In each scene I noticed footprints in the sand. Sometimes there were two sets of footprints, other times there was one only.
This bothered me because I noticed that during the low periods of my life, when I was suffering from anguish, sorrow or defeat, I could see only one set of footprints, so I said to the Lord,
‘You promised me Lord, that if I followed you, you would walk with me always. But I have noticed that during the most trying periods of my life there has only been one set of footprints in the sand. Why, when I needed you most, have you not been there for me?’
The Lord replied, ‘The years when you have seen only one set of footprints,
my child, is when I carried you.’
All I could do after reading that was to be silent..!
