Since I can remember, I loved reading and being read to, when I haven’t learned to read yet( around the age of 5 year-old). My mom used to read me from a huge fairytale book of Brothers Grimm. Later on, when I learned to read a little, I remember I used to read a books with fairies for more than 10 times. I don’t know what I found so fascinating if I already knew how the story ended. Even now, after more than 10 years, I can still feel my fingers on a short story of the three pigs translated into French. The colors, the musicality of the words, and the covers made the experience almost magical.
When I was in high-school, me and my colleagues had to write, as a homework for English class, a short essay on the importance of traveling. I don’t exactly remember what my teacher thought of my homework or even what grade I got, but one of the few things I remember about that day is that more than 90% of my colleagues, including myself, used as an ending line, the following words: ‘Traveling broadens our horizons’. It sounded really smart at that time.
Today’s topic is success. What is it, how to achieve it and, some related thoughts. What made me write and previously think about success is an article I’ve read exposing the thoughts on the matter of some corporate employees.
I am outraged, angry, and sad. Last night more than 100 people were killed in Paris after many bombs exploded and people were taken hostages at a concert hall. While I don’t know much about terrorism, I really don’t think that Jesus, Muhammad or Allah wants his children to kill their neighbors. I refuse to think there is such a god that wants murder, blood and sadness.
