For me, success is being satisfied. I am happy where I am. That does not mean I do not want to grow but that I am in no rush for that growth.
I would like to start by asking you a question, “When would you call yourself successful?”
This question could have different answers for different people. In my day-to-day life, I get to talk to a lot of people who are constantly struggling to grow and to reach a particular somewhere. The hustle is real, it’s all around us, but where is the calm?
People talk about work-life balance but is real success hidden in the true balance? Or is success a measure of your bank balance? Do you think your friends enjoying a luxurious holiday are successful? Do you aim to reach where your boss is? If you run a business, is success a profit or a turnover? If you are in a job, is success a designation or a pay scale?
Each of us could have our definition of success but it is important to find this answer. To know when you can stop running and enjoy what you have achieved. To know when it is finally okay to say I am satisfied with my journey. Each of us should think about this and write it down somewhere. Look at that every morning and when we hit that target accept it. Accept to leave the race, accept to take a break and pause to enjoy the success.
For me, success is being satisfied. I am happy where I am. That does not mean I do not want to grow but that I am in no rush for that growth. I have come to a stage where I can enjoy what I have achieved, my brand is still young, and still needs to grow a lot but that has nothing to do with my success. I refuse to hustle; I refuse to run.

Half a decade ago marriage was a bargain between two famlies. Most of the women were married off to a man who was either well off or who could fend for his wife and family. Today the parameters of marriage have changed. Women no longer marry for the sake of economic security. Their expectations from marriage have changed in the course of years because of their changed status.
As women grew independent, their patterns of choosing partners have changed dramatically. Now women choose men who they feel can satiate their emotional as well as physical needs. Intimacy is no longer the physicality that happened between two people under the supervision of elders of the family for the sole purpose of procreation. Intimacy in today’s marriages involve understanding and fulfilling each other’s emotional as well as sexual needs.
So before you decide to hook up see if you know these five things about intimacy.
We often hear of relationships doomed by distances, of love wearing off when physical proximity ceases, and of growing apart. Most of my life I grew up witnessing the opposite of this. Thus, my belief in growing together whether distant or near stands tall.
When I think back today, I owe a lot of my value system to being a part of army life. This is the love of steel-hearted women who breathe life and passion into the soldiers of the armed forces.
A book by Swapnil Pandey, The Force Behind the Forces, is apt here. The love of these gritty women powers the men to confidently step out and face the most hostile situations. I feel privileged to share a personally witnessed account of this undying love and faith.
