I guess not many of us would have forgotten the man who stole our hearts as NEO in the Matrix triology but do you know his life has a very interesting back story – His father left him when he was three, his mother was a divorced wanderer,Keanu himself was affected with Dyslexia, his girl friend died in an automobile crash and his daughter was stillborn- sounds more like a wreck. 

Despite all this he is one of widely admired A- listers around the globe.Some of the most incredible stories of survival are scripted around pain and suffering. Learn to use the pain as a driving force to change your destiny. As I quote very often ” It is never too late to make a start”. Format all your sufferings and re-boot yourself to make optimum use of your own abilities.

More often than not pain can serve as a great motivation. Stop whining about the hurdles that you face when you work towards your dream. If you think you are the only victim just have a re-look at the list I have provided above. We all go through our own phase of insurmountable odds the trick is to not let it get to you. Just keep your eye on the treasure that awaits you in the end it might just help you last the whole distance 

This post is written for A to Z blogging challenge and Ultimate blog challenge






  1. Sometimes we go through a lot of pain and think we will never see light at the end of the tunnel.

  2. I had absolutely no idea of his story, Salesh! Very inspiring. Thanks for sharing.
    PS: I can’t seem to find if you’re on Twitter.

  3. Inspiring thoughts – thank you for sharing!

  4. Stopping by on the 12th day of the #atozchallenge. Having a good time today blog hopping, saying hi and moving on. If you have time or interest, I am writing about gardening and related topics this month. Come and visit.

  5. That is inspiring. He is one of my favs 🙂
    Like Speed the most

  6. This guy Keanu is like a never ageing mortal in our world and I just love him. Not just for his cute looks, but his calm demeanour and his down to earth self. My friend even met him in a subway train and this guy got up to give his seat to a pregnant lady.
    Apart from that he inspires me to keep fighting. To stand up again and again no matter how many times I fall.
