A fine line divides success & failure

What does success mean to you

Success is dynamic and transforms itself perceptually time to time. When I was young, I craved to wear success materially. When one matures, these trappings seem vain and trivial and no longer drive me. Success has got me recognition and respect, apart from bringing me the added benefits of a standard of life enabling comfort, luxury, entertainment, privacy, health and security. However, success has also entrapped me and I realise it is a very fine line between success, mediocrity and failure.

What is your biggest strength

My biggest strength is my ability to put myself in other peoples shoes. I never underestimate people and I believe I am sensitive even in this age. I have huge weaknesses as well, of being infused with an inferiority comple. I am also insecure.

What works as a stress buster

Work is holiday and holiday torture. Therefore, during my occupational work I derive pleasure in creating wall sculptures and paintings that are influenced by my sensitivity to automobile forms. I also catch up on the latest business management theories or design news just before I retire. At spare times, I love listening to old Hindi film music.

God to you is...

I am not an overtly religious person, but do believe there is some supernatural being. How else do you explain unpredictable coincidences. There is definitely an angel who ensured I got what I dreamt of.
