Kakorrhaphiophobia - wtf ?

It is 6th September, some 2 months for CAT,& am hardly studying,except for giving the mocks, which i enjoy giving.Maybe it satisfies my deep hidden ego somewhere, somehow.So here as i look at the JMET 2009 admission site, now accepting applications, all i can do is wonder "Should i apply ??".

Reality hits hard.Its easy to hate your college & dream to get into those amazing B-school campuses,that i-gonna-take-revenge attitude, supported by a decent mock score which instills in a feeling of 'work harder, you may get into that golden league of so-termed lucky people'.But what is difficult is the reality to actually work hard on it.Dedication is still missing & the most important the 'spark' to do it no matter what & courage which doesn't care about the failures.

Yes, I confess the word is Kakorrhaphiophobia ~ Fear of Failures or Defeat & it is proving out to be as dangerous as any other of those phobia lists.It can finish off a relationship even before it starts.It can bury a realizable dream in its premature stage,something as heartless as crushing that small bud of rose before it blossoms into one of the most amazing beauties of nature.It can direct you & say, why do you want to work when you know it won't be completed & worst of it, it supports the pessimistic attitude which takes you no where in life.

But wait who said fears can't be conquered,isn't an air-flight more exciting when you have acrophobia to conquer over & prove yourself.Who knows there is another lesson in teaching,the coming few months beacause 'Life is too short & there is a lot to enjoy & learn'.So, the mode remains 'OPTIMISTIC'.ONLY ACTIONS NO EMOTIONS..!!

B: Aren't you afraid going out fishing during such a stormy weather, rough sea?
A: Yes, I am.It scares the crap out of me..!
B: Then how do you still manage to venture out ?
A: Its good, am soon running out of all the stock of crap inside me. :)


  1. Lt. Col. Frank Slade is speaking in defense of Charlie Simms at meeting at the Baird School. He says- Now I have come to the cross-roads in my life. I always knew what the right path was. Without exception, I knew, but I never took it. You know why? It was too damn hard..

    If you have to do it do it NOW, else it would keep coming back to you.. and one day u'd either say "its not meant for me" and surrender or let the frustration creep in after many half-hearted attempts!

    good luck! keep studyin with that OPTIMISTIC mode!

  2. btw Lt Col. Slade was Al Pacino in my fav "Scent Of a Woman" :)
