‘IF’ Keeps me Going!

Not the uncertainty, but the poem!

‘IF’ by Rudyard Kipling.

IF manages to work its magic on me every time I read it.

IF covers a wide spectrum of values from not lying to forbearance. The personification of Triumph and Disaster, the amazing finish – this poem is just wow! For me, it has been a model for great conduct and for developing a great strength of character. IF, in essence, does seem to be influenced by Bhagvad Gita.

I have had a pin-up of this masterpiece at my workplace for as long as I can remember!

Your heart starts racing, your pulse quickens, impatience to achieve rises from the depth of your soul, the mind clears of the fog of indecision and ambiguity and…you are raring to go. Ready to live out your best life with the best of values.
