WILLPOWER

Many a times, 
The world does feel smaller,
Probably bigger with less in it;
Few chances and opportunities,
Less motivation and purpose,
More shortcomings and misfortunes,
Enshrined in the day to day way of life;
The only comfort a couple of words,
"Whatever doesn't kill you, makes you stronger"
Yet strength is hard to come by,
Precisely the physical strength;
Fortunately, willpower can be summoned,
Tainted with willingness to fight;
Shedding off all the negativity,
Creating a new purpose and reenacting motivation,
A peculiarity that makes the world a perfect place,
Worth awakening to.

NOT ALONE

I stare up at the sky,
An empty space,
That's all I see,
Nothing captivating on sight,
Yet it's a calm night,
Filled with melodious sounds,
Escaping the unseen little insects,
Deservedly worth the praise,
For they offer stiff competition,
To the soothing tunes,
Of the early morning birds;
The sounds peculiarly gentle-
The melody untainted,
As the rhythm echoes,
Restoring hope,
Though in my own world, 
Elevating me to a star,
To shine through the vastness,
Of the outer space,
Wandering aimlessly through the sky,
The world not my own,
For I stumble upon other stars;
Realizing I'm not alone anymore.

STRIKING A BALANCE

I never seem to fully savor a deservedly earned victory. It gets me beaming with pleasure and clinching my fist in a snooty manner. The feeling can be overwhelming but I don't let it impinge upon my attitude and behavior. 
 'One should never desert his true self and drown in a fleeting feeling' is my guiding principle. This phrase is peculiarly curved from the realization that there are still more battles yet to come, no matter the current outcome.
My reaction after a unforeseen loss (bearing in mind we all encounter challenges or predicaments with the hope of pulling through successfully) is never the inverse of when I win
I must admit losing does change my mood precipitously. I start contemplating on the various strategies I should have used and might have had a higher probability of success!
I try not to rue my missed chance and move on quickly. Basically, this is in order to be prepared for what lies ahead no matter how bleak.
There need to be a balance between winning and losing. Winning is meant to increase the appetite for success. I often rather than not get inspiration from my past success. I use it to curve a desirable result in whatever I encounter.
Losing should be the basis of challenging oneself. I take it as a lesson and ensure I'm much better in my future endeavors.
Never let losing affect you. Replicate success and you'll attain all your goals.

INEXTRICABLY CONNECTED

The feeling was intangible,
Though one trait was very lucid;
It immensely sent pangs of anxiety,
Across the motionless stiff body,
That had already been entrapped ,
In galloping and spooky fear, 
Peculiarly unpredictable,
With each passing minute,
Wishing I could be quietude,
To prevent the darkness from resurrecting,
Inside my ingenuous aching heart,
Devoid of energy and elation;
An absolute devastating cruelty,
To the day's awaiting chores,
Needing exceptionally careful attention,
Rather than desultory, 
Convoluted considerations,
Emanated from mere hazy thoughts,
Ensuing more agonizingly,
Boundless anguish,
Proving to be intolerable,
As it had a drastic obtrusive effect,
That required hasty intercession,
Before the wee strength left in me,
Vanished like the joy existing beforehand,
Wishing it would be reignited,
For all the multiple mixed emotions,
Were inextricably connected.

Famous Failures That Succeeded (infographic)

Failure does not bring an end to the desire of success nor does it mean its time to give up. The fear of failure holds back many people from pursuing their dreams and attaining success. Ralph Waldo Emerson once said, “Our greatest glory is not in never failing, but in rising up every time we fail.”
There are many renown individuals who while starting out encountered many obstacles yet they overcame them. The following inforgraphic epitomizes some of their setbacks:
