My Inspiration for Positive Approach in Life : Dr. A.P.J Abdul Kalam

For this post I decided to use my Facebook profile picture. Today's blog is about the man I admire," Dr. A.P.J Abdul Kalam"

Dr. A.P.J Abdul Kalam born on 15th October, 1931 was the 11th President of India. Born and raised in Rameswaram, he studied physics and aerospace engineering. Popularly known as Missile man of India, he was referred as "People's President". On 27th July, 2015 while delivering lecturer at Indian Institute of Management Shillong, he collapsed. He died because of cardiac arrest.

Whenever I feel demotivated and negative, I find positive energy reading his quotes and speeches. 

"Determination is the power that sees us through all our frustrations and obstacles. It helps in building our willpower which is the very basis of success" - Dr. A.P.J Abdul Kalam

In December, last year I decided to start writing the blogs on training and development. I was not sure if I would be able to write or will I get views. I really wanted to write the blog as training is my passion and writing, a hobby. Whenever I do not feel confident I go to Dr. Kalam and without fail I find my inspiration each time. 

"Courage is about doing what you are afraid to do. The one who feels no fear is a fool and the one who lets fear rule him is instead a coward. We must have courage to act instead of reacting"-Dr. A.P.J Abdul Kalam

That day I realized that fear is not bad but it cannot stop me from being who I am and what I want to do. 

"Do not wait for something big to happen start where you are with whatever you have." -Dr. A.P.J Abdul Kalam

That's how I started writing blogs and encourage myself with quotes by Dr. Kalam.

Recently, I attended an interview which I did mention in my blog Blog about Woman's Career. I felt frustrated. But then I read, "Use the difficult situation you are facing to tap into your spirituality and built upon it to achieve something meaningful."- Dr. A.P.J Abdul Kalam.

He was a scientist, statesmen, teacher, president and a very good human being. I had never met him personally but he is my teacher who has taught me the way to live my life. Though, he is not in this world but he continues to show right path to me and many more. 

There are many quotes by him which continues and will always inspire and show path to me. One of the quotes by him that has always inspired me to never give up is :-

"Failures will never overtake me if my definition to succeed is strong enough." - Dr. A.P.J Abdul Kalam 

Life has many shades, failures and success is part of it and what I learnt from Dr. Kalam is," Life is a very complex interplay of various factors and there has to be acceptance of the risks inherent in copying with it and yet keep moving on."  

He is my inspiration and I still follow him and will follow forever. I have learnt never to lose hope and more importantly I have learnt to dream. He may not be alive but his thoughts will continue to inspire. His life is a perfect example of never give up.
