Power of meditation and solitude

There was one lumberjack who used to work for a very reputable wood company. He spent almost one decade in that company while dedicatedly giving his best. One day a new lumberjack came to his company and also started working with him. The first lumberjack observed this new person and found that both lumberjacks used to put the same amount of effort in their day to day work still this new person used to get double output.

Srinivas Ramanujan: Powerful motivational story

Napoleon Hill once said, “ The only limitation is that which one sets up in one’s own mind.” Srinivas Ramanujan proved this quote true. Srinivas Ramanujan, the person who knew infinity, was a common village boy with unlimited potential. He didn’t get any professional training from any mathematician but he was a self-trained person. He was born on December 22, 1887, in a Tamil family. His contribution to mathematics is unmatched and will be remembered always. He died at a young age of 32 but he had given so much to the field of mathematics that if he had lived 10-20 years more then he might have surpassed the achievements of Einstein or Newton. We can measure the talent of Ramanujan by knowing facts like he used to solve college-level mathematics problems during schooling, at the age of thirteen he learned advanced Trigonometry and in his life of mere Thirty Two years, he invented 3900+ equations. But during his lifetime he continuously faced challenges as he failed in exams because
