I had some question, you might have them too. “Is there some stage in midst of Success & Failure?” “Is there some legit way to define Confidence and Attitude?” “Is money all you need to be happy?” “Is there some defined way to select the profession?” “What drives us?” and this never stops... Though, my journey of 7 years towards an answer to all these questions concluded with a book, Back of the Ball ! It is key to the most lu....
The Journey from Failure Towards Success
From the very first day, since I have started this book, there was huge anxiety if I’ll succeed in completing it? Over no surprise, the dates and deadlines I gave myself were quite overruled. My commitments being broken continuously! The book was about to be launched in May 2014, but somehow I pushed it 6 years down the line. Still, my persistent approach towards completing it surprised me too.
In a nutshell, every bit of writing I wanted to produce, faced huge commitment issues. Here, the concern was not about the quality, it was about the speed. I failed to fulfill my commitment. I failed in accomplishing the task on time. I failed in keeping myself up on the deadlines. So now the question left was, if it was my failure? Am I a failed writer? The answer seems “YES”, but surprisingly it’s a “NO”!
Let me drive you to the depth. It surely took me 6 more years to complete this book than expected. However, it took exactly that much time and perseverance to understand the depth of the matters of life. To redefine the vistas of so-called “LIFE”, I wonder what it would have been if I would have tried to explain the Philosophy of life, without even being a part of some of its most crucial phases (literally it included one of the biggest pandemic of all times: Covid-19). What would have happened if I would not have been into the episodes of these 6 years of my life, which continuously challenged my thoughts on temperaments of life?
My writing might have been the fragments of my “Little Realms of Imagination”, but that won’t be able to disclose the reality of the part of life, where we usually wander for happiness. The place where we think the best of our expectations are hidden, at the “BACK OF THE BALL”! (The part we are longing to see, but if it exists or not is a question)
When I first thought of this book, it was not just a book. It was a whole new perception of the most basic parts of life. It was about challenging the conventional ways. It was all about the change!
However this chapter, I wrote at the end to make you read at the start.
One that was a matter of shame for me 6 years ago, is a matter of pride today, not because I have finally fulfilled my long time failed writing commitment and got it published successfully. But because in these 6 years, I almost revised this whole content for about 73 times (Not sure though). Yet now what I have contains the actual essence of the idea “BACK OF THE BALL”.
