John Lennon once said, "Life is what happens to you while you're busy making other plans." Yes, everyday we plan something but we experience some other reality. But the things which count most are keeping our shoulder high and moving forward.
Just think about Mary Kay Ash who after working for 30 years as a sales representative, one day suddenly found that she was passed over for promotion in favor of men. At that very moment, she resigned from the company and decided to launch her own business.
As the thought so the decision, with the initial 5000 dollars - every cent she had, Mary Kay planned out her business. But a month before she was to open her business, her husband died of a heart attack, right at their kitchen table.
Most people would never have been able to go on after that event but not Mary Kay. She kept going and launched May Kay Cosmetics. And now, Mary Kay Cosmetics grosses over 2 billion dollars at retail every year, spreading its wings to 37 countries with 8,00,000 representatives.
Life is a process of becoming, a combination of states we have to go through. But most of the people elect a state first, and then try to remain in it. Sorry, we can not remake our self without suffering … nah!!
