Be the hero, you seek

Be the hero, you seek

The insurmountable mountain top in picture, few steep climbs and heavy breaths later. May be we should do this tomorrow, we did start late as the hotel owner said. There is a mid way cafe, we can chill there and go down and tomorrow get a fresh start.

Is it this or we are already giving up or the Inner procrastinator banks on the fact we have tomorrow to do this.

Listen to the frail sound, Keep going.

How far to the top?

“You will reach by evening.”, it was only 10.30a.m. 🤨

“Some said 5–6 , some said by 4–5” .

Then some one says 2–3 and some one finally said “1.30, you guys are making quick time.”

The small note of encouragement put a spring to our feet. Suddenly, the air felt colder, the good kind and the mood uplifted. The jolly tune started humming in the head.

Big Goals, small actions

Big Goals, small actions

One step at a time, take immediate action not overwhelmed by large goals.

The mountain on the whole looks daunting. But when you think I will take 10 steps and see. And then you take 10 steps. When the 10 steps will tough, you say let’s take one step and see. And we literally did this, as we reached top steep parts of trek we took 2 steps and stopped, then other two steps. But we kept going.

Don’t be blinded by your goals

Don’t be blinded by your goals

Stop, take a deep breath and look back. Soak in where you are, plan again where you want to go. Look at the last once unsurmountable point on the mountain, now seems like a distant victory. Then look around, soak in where you have reached and then look at the next unsurmountable peak and remind yourself, you will conquer it.

You can do more than the limit you set for yourself

You can do more than the limit you set for yourself

Mind wants to protect you, it will try to run in opposite direction. To save you from the physical and the mental pain of giving up. It will prefer, I could have but never tried . But, if you block it and keep going. New paths will open up. New belief system will develop.

When you reach the peak, you will be surprised. I did it. You will reflect, I had my moments of doubt but I did it. This is far beyond my physical capacity, this was my initial thought. I was wrong. The good kind of wrong, the kind which puts a wry smile on your face.

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.


Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Sean Green

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Ghazala Begum

Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.

Giovanna Scalzone

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
