I spoke to Myself

October 19 2011

Inspiration is perhaps very much necessary to each one of us. We ourselves can truly inspire our-self. We know the person within us better than anyone else. Inspiring ourselves is the best one can do for the one self. I do speak to myself quite often, and I hope most of you too do, which is quite inspiring for me.
From a last couple of weeks, myself, good friend Ling & Thiyag are practicing for 5 kilometer Marathon coming up in November. We decided to run on the roads instead of using treadmills. It was all fun & indeed very stressful. When the stress gets the best out of you, we always tend to give up. Such was the scenario with me once. Half a kilometer to finish, I was grasping for breath. I was very much certain to stop at that point, even though the destination was in sight. Then I spoke to myself, regained my confidence & composure to complete the run.

I was very much excited when Ling expressed about the same feelings while we were discussing after our practice. He was true to say that the sighting of our destination helped us do our best. Hope to better our time during our next session.

Instead of searching for Inspiration elsewhere, we got to look into ourselves. If we can't find tranquility in ourselves, we can't find it anywhere.
