Stephen Hawking:: Guy who never give up!

If you feel god did so bad to you & now you can’t do anything, you are helpless then you must Google one name; The great Scientist Stephen Hawking.  The biggest example of positive attitude, passion for life, passion for work and strongest Will Power. The greatest example of Courage & Will power that can even beat death & any disability!

Today is the National Disability day of India. On the FM Radio, i heard many Indian Hero’s who win & set an example for people in spite of Disability. I also heard a new term for Disable i.e ‘Differently Able’.  These are people who met unfortunate accidents or never even blessed with a normal condition or body but still they win. They ignored what they don’t have & just focused on what they have & what they can do to help people like them. They work really hard & set examples for others. They are real Heros. While hearing the show, the person who pop up in my mind is ‘Stephen Hawkings’.

Prof. Stephen Hawking is the biggest example of it. I really appreciate & salute this man. He is a big inspiration to me.

Prof. Hawking is suffering from Motor neuron disease. ALS is a condition in which a person body parts get paralysed with time & a person can survive max  6 – 7 years. But Mr Hawkings with his strong will power is living with this from last 48 years. He has been in a wheelchair for almost 42 years with almost every body part paralyses except his sharp mind & can’t even speak for 28 years.

He embodies the importance of taking obstacles in one’s stride. This disease & condition actually changed his outlook towards life. One might not have earmarked Hawking as the next great scientist of a generation. He only learnt to talk at 3 years old, read at 8 years old and was terribly lazy throughout his schooling – even during his studies at Cambridge University. Prof. Hawking had a natural flare for Mathematics, However, upon finding out that University College didn’t offer Maths, Hawking jumped straight into a degree in Physics. After finishing his undergraduate degree, he decided to study Cosmology at Cambridge University.

He discovered his disease at tender age of 20’s which shattered him for some time, but then he decided not to give up & do his best till he live.

Professor Stephen Hawking may be in a wheelchair, and may have to speak through a synthesizer, but he has nonetheless overcome an obstacle doctors never thought he would – to live for 48 years with ALS. Not only has Hawking overcome a monumental obstacle; he has done so exceptionally, becoming a role model.

He is well known & well respected theoretical physicist and cosmologist. Working till now with his full paralysis body thru his brain, eye moment & his VoiceText speech synthesiser & small computer fixed on his wheelchair . He is continually giving his best to the fields of cosmology and quantum gravity, especially black holes, theorem of general relativity, etc.

Hawking has won numerous awards, medals and prizes worldwide for his scientific prowess. Wanting to share his life with the world, Hawking has released two autobiographies, wrote more than 15 books, has been awarded 12 honorary degrees and has even the title of Commander of the British Empire.

He lives life at its best even in the worst condition he is facing. He wants to enjoy weightless condition so he took the weightless flight in 2007 which was actually a big achievement in his condition.  His wish is to go to space & I wish that his dream will come true.

Why I’m telling you his story? It’s because i somewhere realized maybe most of us are blessed with healthy body & mind conditions still we treat us as disable.  Sometimes we become soo helpless & give-up in front of the challenges we face in our personal, social or professional lives. We break down & give up on small things which are actually just pretty small in front of the Purpose we carry for our life.  I’m sharing this because i want you to think about this man courage, outlook & willpower whenever you feel like giving up.
Just think if a person like him can add so much to world & live meaningful life;  why can’t you?? 
It’s only willpower & positive outlook which can change your condition. Yes, it may take time but it will change for sure!
So be positive, be inspirational & no matter who you are, what you are, how much capable or incapable you think you are; Just get up, wipe your tears, throw your pains & feeling of helplessness and work towards something you really good at. Be the change you want to see. 
Get up! Do something for yourself & humankind. Be an example, an inspiration that gives hope to many!

Hope you also get motivated by Prof. Stephen Hawking like me.

In the end, I just want to share Prof. Stephen Hawking Quote:

“Remember to look up at the stars and not down at your feet. Try to make sense of what you see and wonder about what makes the universe exist. Be curious. And however difficult life may seem, there is always something you can do and succeed at.   It matters that you don’t just give up.”

Richard Branson: Inspiring Leader & Amazingly Creative Person!

Richard Branson well-known figure across world. Owner of the biggest group in the world ‘Virgin Group’. Why I want you all to know about Richard Branson? It’s certainly not  just to tell how great or amazing he is. I wanna tell about him to make you realize that if you believe in yourself, you can achieve what you actually want in life even if you are suffering from any problem. So here I go…

Richard Branson is a super cool Dude! Extremely courageous, creative, imaginative, innovative, adventurous & determined. His self-confidence, refusal to give in and readiness to challenge largely accepted norms became the fertile grounds on which success blossomed. From a Dyslexia, poor IQ test, poor image in front of teachers, school & people; he rise himself to the level of the most successful & influential people in world. A creative genius started his success story from an eye catcher student newspaper ‘The Student’ & now owning biggest Group with 400 companies ‘Virgin Group’.

The person for whom business is not about wearing suits or keeping stockholders pleased. It’s about being true to yourself, your ideas and focusing on the essentials. I like & respect Richard Branson not just because of his extremely confident personality & his inspiring story but also because he is the man who really want the world to grow. He is the man who helps, promote young entrepreneur with amazingly cool ideas. Virgin Startup helps entrepreneur with funding, resources & advice they need to make their business in reality.

He believe in himself & did what his heart said not what world assumed. He refuse to follow crowd, he refused to limit himself because of dyslexia, He refused to accept the poor IQ test result, he refused to be poor failure unnoticed common person and he refused to let stigmas of the society pull him down. His achievements were born of his undying trust on self, willpower & determination. He wins because that’s what he wants to and that’s what he is born for. I like him because no amount of ridicule could ever rob his confidence & faith.

Here are some interesting details of his career: The 20-something Richard Branson racked up a résumé that would impress no one: high-school dropout with dyslexia and had poor reading and math skills. Failed get-rich-quick schemes. Long-haired, barefooted hippie. Struggling business that led to two arrests and a night in jail on suspicion of tax evasion. His IQ scores were low and to teachers & school he was obviously not bright. But what IQ test & school failed to notice is his burning ambition, creative intelligence & exemplary interpersonal skills. His strong desire drove him on to find creative solutions no matter what problems were & to keep persisting where others would have given up long before.

As a teenager, Richard became extremely frustrated with the rigidity of schools rules & regulations. His first creative rebellion was to start his own Newspaper for Students. A dyslexic starting a Newspaper? Yes! He started his newspaper ‘The Student’ He didn’t published boring newspaper dedicated to school neither he limited his paper to student articles. He made it colorful, exciting & appealing to all. He invites Rockstars, Movie stars, sports stars, creative stars, MPs etc to contribute. He thought it differently & ‘The Student’ was a hit. Richard’s college principal said to him ‘Congratulation Branson! I predict you will either go to prison or become a millionaire,” Branson always recognizes opportunities when they cruise by him, and it was this innate business knack that helped him lay the foundation to what is today one of the world’s best known brands.

In 1970, the British Government had abolished the Retail Price Maintenance Agreement, but major music stores refused to lower the price of their ware. Branson started a mail order discount music records business that progressed like wildfire. The first chapter in the glorious story of Virgin is young Branson’s decision to set up the recording studio Virgin Records, fueled by the success of his discount records venture. The name “Virgin” was coined by a colleague who explained that they were all virgins in business, and thus the name was apt. Mike Oldfield’s instrumental compositions Tubular Bells topped charts in 1973, and stayed on the UK charts for almost 250 weeks.

Richard Branson is known for his boldness, be it his appetite for adventure sports, or for his unconventional business methods. Soon after the launch of Virgin Records, Branson signed on the controversial Sex Pistols, and went on to gain appreciation for publishing avant-garde works like that of Faust and Can. And thereon began a series of trend-setting achievements in the musical world. Today, Virgin is a brand whose assortment of businesses includes airways, publishing and distributing books, music supermarkets, start-up loans, credit cards, holiday planning, fitness clubs and recently, countering global warming. The empire called Virgin Group is made of more than 400 companies that function independently with different boards. However, all these companies have something in common: the collective knowledge and experience.

You may like to read his Autobiography  book ‘Losing My Virginity’ , it’s also a perennial bestseller.  

If a man suffering from dyslexia could make history & become billionaire with people following him & writing about him than why you are holding yourself?? Trust yourself!

Your believe, willpower, determination & ability to channelize your energy into something you wanna do is the key.

You hold the key to unlock door of your success! Come On! Go for It!
