“Guess what! Asking for help is a Privilege; Privilege for the one being asked to help as this shows the amount of TRUST the other person have in YOU !!”
We all need help from time to time in our pursuit of SUCCESS, JOY and ENLIGHTENMENT.
This book is a little bit of my own contribution to inspire and spur you on your journey.
This book is a short read, divided into 8 chapters which are basically 8 practical concepts, values or skills to inspire and guide you on your quest for success. A few of those are described below:
ATTITUDE: The ‘how’ of things
- Even if we have ample motivation and skill, it is our ‘Attitude’ which ultimately determines whether we will be able to successfully achieve your goals or not.
- The most profound effect of a positive attitude is, it makes your life happier and joyful. If you have consciously decided on your Attitude of life and act accordingly, you will never regret the decisions you make
Measure everything: A ‘mirror’ for your success
- What gets measured, gets done! This is an eternal truth in both our professional and personal life.
- The best way of maintaining and improving anything is to measure it every day.
Find your own ‘superpower’: A cape to fly to the zenith
- This is your own chip, something which no one can take from you and this is in fact the actual value you bring to anything you venture in.
- We may not realize the value of this initially, however, this ‘sense of accomplishment’ is very important in our life. A person who has experienced a sense of achievement in anything at least once, can change their life drastically, in a positive way. Things which appeared daunting and seemed impossible, start becoming easy.
And many more such small nuggets of wisdom and practices…
This book is arranged in the format of concept description/importance, personal stories/examples of the same and finally an ‘Action Plan’ if you are interested in cultivating the concept further.
“PRACTICE is always the basis of achieving or succeeding in anything. You can have numerous fantastic theoretical ideas and knowledge, but if you don’t practice the same daily, it will only stay as an Idea”

Essentially, Wrestle with Destiny is a kind of cognitive therapy. Cognitive therapy is a mode of therapy whose sole aim is to get a person to improve his or her thinking. Any person can do that with a little reorientation regarding what’s important to them.
