Failure leads to Success Inspiring short story from Steve Jobs life

In this post we bring out a short inspiring story on Steve Jobs - how some failures in his life lead to one of the secret of success. When we mention about Steve Jobs , everyone know about about his Creativity. He was also considered one among the great creative icons of this century. He had a special character - even his enemies used to praise his efforts and dedication towards work. His life was full of up and downs - He went to college and later dropped out , later roamed around trying different things , when he was 20 , started a small company in his home garage along with his friend and named it 'Apple'. In the next 10 years , this company grew at a rapid pace and employed 4000 people with 2 billion dollars turn over. As company grew , he employed few more intelligent members in the team. Everything went well for next 1-2 years and suddenly , there crept in some difference in opinions in the team. The company directors met together and took a major decision i.e, to quit Steve jobs !! . 

Steve was 30 when he had to leave his own built firm. He was very disappointed and depressed , was not knowing what to do next and for next 4-6 months spent time thinking on that. He once sat and thought - "It is real that I have lost my company, but have always loved the work I did". He met his investors who had faith in him and apologized personally. He also promised , he shall not disappoint them and would start a new company. Immediately along with some of his friends he started a company "Next" , After 2 years started another company "Pixar". He worked very hard day and night , just like he loved his work - he also fell in love with a girl Laurene and married later.

Next company grew so rapidly that his earlier owned ex-firm Apple bought it and Steve Jobs was again appointed as CEO of Apple - this seemed like his life clock completed one turn and returned back at its initial point. Later Steve jobs grew as a eminent entrepreneur and gained popularity worldwide. During some interview when he was asked about his success secret , on the ups and downs he faced , he replied - "This would have not happened if I was not fired from Apple. That incident was like having a most bitter medicine for me. It was bitter , however it was essential for my well being. It helped me gain more attentiveness slowly. Sometimes in our life , we are attacked by big problems , but we should not loose faith. Only one thing saved me during that time - the love I had in my work. None of the jobs bring us success that we do without love. Nothing is permanent. If we think and has a limited aim to only to own a house and stay back , we permanently lay back in life and do not grow. We should always work with new visions , have new thirst in the things we love to do." 

These wisdom words from Steve jobs are so real. Some may have a job even when they don't love the work they do - which may bring in - money and home , but it may not bring great success and lead to individual growth. To succeed and make great achievements , we should consistently do the work we love deep in our hearts and should always think on those activities. Lets not stay back by just owning a house - let us move further working hard on the things which we love to do . Unconsciously , It leads us to great heights of success.

RamaDevara Betta , Ramgiri , Ramanagar - awesome hill spot one day trip from Bangalore

We bring in this post one of the awesome hill trekking spot our team visited . The Rama Devara Betta (Lord Rama Hill rock)  , Ramagiri kshetra in Ramanagar - which is about 49 kms from Bangalore city central and around 3 kms from Bangalore-Ramanagar-Mysore Highway.

RamaDevara Betta - on the way narrow roads

We reached the spot just before noon and it was quite hot sunny day. The 3kms route from Highway to this spot was very interesting  and felt adventurous while be passed by narrow roads surrounded by rocky hills. Moment we reached the temple arch located at round 3000ft below the temple hill , the security greeted us and showed way to the ample parking space with a minimal charge of Rs.10. For two wheelers its Rs.5.  They informed , there were 400 stairs to reach the temple.

The entrance had a small Ganesha idol, we took his blessings and started our mission climbing the RamaDevara Betta. 

We got a feel we are entering into some rocky jungle while we climbed the stairs, surrounded by age old rocks , bushes and trees.

People here say that this place is known for Vultures and Bears, however they are known to be active during nights. We found few clues when we saw some small caves in the rocks. 

RamaDevara Betta - Hanuman and Shiva Temples rock face
While we passed half of the stairs , we were greeted by Lord Shiva and Hanuman temples and felt relaxed taking the Darshan and the satisfaction of completing half of the adventurous journey. We very soon climbed through the rest of the stairs and reached our final destination , The Hill top Rama temple. There were around 380 stone stair steps to reach here and we made it in around 30-40 minutes.

This temple is of Historic Importance dating to Ramayana 1000s of years ago - the temple priest informed during Ramayana  , King of Vanaras , Sugreeva established this idol when Lord Rama helped him in killing Asura Sukasura. This was later identified and renovated by Kempegowda, the founder of Bangalore.

RamaDevara Betta - Sita pond
There is a small pond , which they refer as "Sita pond" . The priest said there is a mystery behind this pond and nobody knows how deep it is . Once some foreigners visited here and tried to measure the pond depth using some instruments , they went till 2000-3000ft with no end and returned back with no clue. This place is restricted for use and any kind of access to the pond as its dangerous too.

Also next to Rama temple is , Lord Rameshwara and Nandi temples . The priest informed , these idols were Udbhava idols ( created by itself ) , there is a view tower infront of this temple where people visit to get a good view of the surroundings.

A short story on how to control Anger and frustration

She was a young tortoise. Just like human kids going to school for studies , these tortoises also had a school near a sea bank. Her parents used to send her to the school. But she always felt the school boring as the teachers there always taught the same topic on how to catch fishes , how to swim for long time without getting tired, how to get away from Sharks etc . She used to get frustrated hearing to the same topics and in anger sometimes used to open her mouth wide open and bite nearby other kid tortoises. Due to this other tortoises started avoiding her which still increased her frustration and she continued to cultivate the anger. This went on and the teachers made her to sit in a lone place which further increased her anger and started feeling lonely. Once after school , she was very angry by the way she was getting treated at school and swam her way back to home.. Suddenly she realized she was going in the opposite direction of her home as her mind was overwhelmed by anger. Just before she was turning back to her route , she noticed a big structure was approaching towards her. When it came near , she realized it was a big old tortoise which may be older than 100 years. She remembered her mother's saying that these old tortoises have enough experience and memories and provide good guidance.
Control Anger , Frustration - Be Happy

By the time she thought of speaking , the old tortoise patted on her back and said - "Child , why are you looking depressed ? ". She suddenly burst into tears and explain about her experiences at school and how she was treated which caused her boredom and anger.  The old tortoise then thought for a minute and advised her - " Yes child, even when I was young I also faced the same problem which you are facing now. There is a solution to this. You should do 3 activities when you start getting angry or frustrated. One - the moment when you feel you are getting angry , hide your neck inside your shell and close your eyes. Two - Take a deep breath 3 times and relax yourself and Finally Three - Think what you can do or tell which will not hurt others. Practice this and within some period your problem will be solved.". She understood the tips given by the old tortoise, thanked him and started following the steps. Whenever she felt angry , used to hide her neck , relax for a minute with deep breath and come out with a refreshing smile. Other tortoises looking at her also shared a gentle smile. As time passed by , she became popular and lived happily.

The above story applies to we humans also - Whenever we feel depressed / Angry / frustrated - if we can control it for a moment , take a deep breath and relax our minds , we can avoid the bad consequences of anger and our reactions will not hurt others. This also improves our relationship and rapport with others. Turning Anger to a Gentle Smile inside your mind is a effective tool to control anger and live happily.
