Obstacles are those frightful things you see when you take your eyes off your goal.
On how to develop a positive attitude through KFP ( Kee Farak Paindaa —- what difference does it make), let me narrate a story which will, in all probability, make an impact on you. Coca Cola and Pepsi were engaged in Cola wars after the launch of Diet Coke in the USA. Pepsi came out with the concept of the “Young Generation” and went in for a record-breaking $5 million contract with Michael Jackson. But for KPF, this contract would have been in the courts causing stress to the Pepsi management and its bottlers.
It happened like this. It was stated in the agreement that Jackson’s face would be shown 5 times. When Jackson saw the film rushes, he put his foot down and wanted it not more than 4 times. Now, the Pepsi management knew for sure that they had a watertight contract and more or less decided to go to court to teach a lesson to the “brat”. As luck would have it, its very young president asked the senior marketing manager for his opinion. His response was instantaneous: “What difference do 5 or 4 circles make? If ever anyone came to know of our fight over this one circle, they would think that we were a bunch of idiots!” Not only does BFP (Bahut Farak Paindaa – it makes a lot of difference) create a lot of tension to its “victim”, it also increases blood pressure. So let go of BFP and embrace KFP. After all, no one can hurt you without your permission.
