Over the years, one philosophy that has served me well is that “you can’t lose what you don’t have.” It seems simple but it works like magic. Whenever I want to make that call or take a difficult step, I just think about this for a second and go ahead with my plan. Before I embark on it, I didn’t have what I wanted. If I don’t get it, I won’t be worse off than before – meaning I can’t lose what I don’t have
Of course, you can’t take it to an extreme.
Mark Twain talked about this long ago in this fashion.
“Dance like nobody’s watching;
love like you’ve never been hurt.
Sing like nobody’s listening;
live like it’s heaven on earth.”
– Mark Twain
On a lighter note – Now, for my friends outside India (Indians would have watched this multiple times) here is a short (5 minutes) video clip if you want to hear it in the form of a song. For the curious few who want to know the stars, the lead actors are Shah Rukh Khan and Saif Ali Khan and the actress is Preity Zinta.
