When I was young I received a birthday card from my father which essentially said

Prayer to GOD

“Give me
The ‘Serenity‘ to accept the things I cannot change,
The ‘Courage‘ to change the things I can,and,
The ‘Wisdom‘ to know the difference”.

As times passed and at moments of self-doubt I encountered another quote from Charles Darwin in ‘The Origin of Species’ which said
“It is not the strongest of the species that survives, nor the most intelligent that survives. It is the one that is the most adaptable to change”.

I guess success is about the ability to connect two unrelated things and make sense of it. Well, it stuck me and I adapted the first quote as the ‘Survival Mantra‘ of my life.

Prayer to GOD

“Give me
The ‘Serenity‘ to accept everything,
The ‘Courage‘ to change nothing,
The ‘Wisdom‘ to stay indifferent”.

Stay Tuned and Have fun.
