What is the colour of the wind?

Most of us would consider ambition as the most important ingredient of success. Would you not agree that we all need to be ambitious in order to fulfill our dreams? Now take a minute and think about your most desired goal in life; think about all the required steps to achieve that goal.

I may not be certain what your goals are but I know for a fact that your plan of action to achieve them requires a great deal of ambition and its meant to lead to success. I don’t know the key to success but I have learnt that they key to failure is trying to please everyone.

We can all agree that we can’t succeed in isolation; like it or not, we all need the assistance of the others to reach our goals. Some people, if not a lot, will not always be pleased by you and you might be required to adjust your plan to suit their preferences. In that way your progress is most likely to be disturbed.

Trying to please everyone is like trying to identify the colour of the wind; someone will always argue against you because no one knows they right answer. What is the colour of the wind? Don’t waste your time trying to answer this, you will never be correct. The same applies to people’s perceptions of your quest to success; some one will always stand on your way.

Don’t let them!


  1. Someone will always try and stand in your way en route to achieving greatness in life. I guess like the wind which can propel you (like a sailboat), so too can such people (who try and hamper you) propel you to further greatness in life.

  2. Maybe it's not about the wind but rather how the wind works for you. We all face obstacles in our lives, but like the wind it can either work against you or push you in the right direction.
