  Recent developments in World Wrestling Entertainment, W W E showed how a popular wrestler by name Seth Rollins desired to make himself a legend instantly without minding how hard such road to greatness is supposed to be.
    Seth Rollins is the present W W E world heavy weight champion. He formerly belonged to a trio of fine, well co-ordinate wrestlers called ‘The Shield’. He opted out of the group after being enticed by the self proclaimed ‘Authority’, the controllers of the games so he may be used to promote their unpopular decisions in the day-to-day affairs of their operations.
        He wriggled his way to the top position in the organization (by becoming the World Heavy-weight Champion) through various questionable methods. The Controller of the games, Triple H who pairs with his wife to describe themselves as the “Authority” have been the brain behind Seth Rollins’ acclaimed ‘successes’  with the company.
        In order to make sure he always recorded victory, he had some ‘aides’ always standing by the ring side to assist him. One of them was the seven- footer, lanky fellow wrestler called ‘Kane’, who always represented the Authority. Also, there used to be a couple of moderate size boys called ‘J J security’. Ironically, an opponent always found himself fighting against four people instead of one, in a contest with Seth Rollins. For now, all the three aides have been dismantled effectively by another super wrestler called Brock Lesnar!
       The streak of ‘victories’ within few months got into Seth Rollin’s head that he demanded a statue be made for him by the Authority; to confirm him as a legend. Though he was aware that many people (among fellow wrestlers) were not happy about the development, he least expected anyone to boldly come forward to resist him being presented with the statue.
     At the point of being presented with it, he was resisted by a visitor to WWE by name ‘Sting’, who made away with the highly cherished object. He advised Seth to really work hard and earn such a statue genuinely and not overnight. Sting eventually tossed the statue into a moving refuse collection vehicle!
        The lesson here is that over-ambition may never bring about true success. In the first place, Seth Rollins had to betray his two other friends in an effort, as he put it; “To build a great future” for himself. Everyone needs to realize that greatness is not a short-term achievement, but something to be built gradually over time and with integrity.
     To be successful in online business, you need to be highly committed and resolute; be prepared to overcome challenges and to try again and again in case of failure at the first attempts. Success or greatness is real; but the road to get there is quite rough, tough and sometimes seems impossible. However, just one more effort may take you to the cherished position.

 The venue of the celebration, a large spacious hall was filled to capacity. The  chief celebrant stood up from the high table to come to the podium, and she was greeted with a resounding round of applause.  
      Madam Rose Mazinga, widow of late Chief Roland Mazinga; a wealthy industrialist of his time, was celebrating her 55th birthday. In attendance at the venue were friends and well wishers of Madam Rose, a highly respected philanthropist in the township. Therefore, apart from her relations and well wishers, there was a group of enthusiastic young men and women- students of various educational institutions; all of them beneficiaries of her philanthropy. They were also there to celebrate with her; with almost each one of them yearning for a space of a minute or two, to express their gratitude to her verbally.
      “I thank all of you for sparing some of your valuable time to be here today”, said Madam Rose as she cast a sweeping look at the audience from one side of the hall to the other side. Then she continued, “I thank God Almighty for keeping me alive today in spite of the huge obstacle on my way of survival. Unknown to many of you, I am one of a set of twin sisters; but I lost my partner fifty years ago.” The hall became cold and enveloped in utter silence; with tears welling up in the eyes of some of her young beneficiaries.
        “Five years after we were born, my twin sister was diagnosed of a heart condition, and with the residue of superstition still surrounding the birth of twins at that time, the general assumption was that the ‘gods’ were not in favor of the kids (being twins). Eventually, she passed away while most of the citizens in the locality expected that I too should follow suite very soon. True to their expectation, I too fell ill of the same ailment a year later. My father was said to be on a business trip abroad and my mother was faced with a situation in which she may remain childless for life because it took her almost twenty years after marriage to have us. This time, she was not prepared to lose me as it happened to my sister. She promptly asked for a referral note from the village clinic to the specialist hospital in the capital city.
          My father was contacted and he consented to the proposed heart surgery abroad”. Once again, she cast another slow, frank and appealing look at the now ‘frozen’ audience in the hall as she concluded, “I appreciate the gallantry of my late mother, who chose to rise above the ignorance that pervaded the locality and opted for an extra ordinary action to be taken to salvage the almost hopeless situation, thank you all once again, for coming.”
