Chief Guest, Guest of Honour, Panelist, Speaker, Role Model, High Achiever, Judge and all those tags!
Yesterday I checked the number of subscribers on Johntext. We can be very satisfied. The total amount of all subscribers on Johntext is a five-digit number!!!
The first authors on Johntext – John P. Matthew from Mumbai (Johntext India) and Laura Lamarca from United Kingdom (Johntext United Kingdom) have a lot of subscribers because they had the most time and because they set value on good articles.
But numbers are not everything. What I want and wish most for 2015 and the coming years is that the real background of Johntext – to create literature with purpose to help – will lead to texts or books which help others…

Today I read the key article about the influence of our past and gone relationships to our behavior and our aims and goals in the future. Published in the Huffington Post by Jean-Paul Bedard – in my opinion – it makes reading hundreds of books about the subject redundant. The article reveals the center and heart of the problem and how to cope with it: it is us and our attitude towards our story, our past and our relationships. A wonderful article about this subject. Enjoy it! Hans-Jürgen John
Besides Faraaz Kazi is cited in the article:
“Some people are going to leave, but that’s not the end of your story. That’s the end of their part in your story.” — Faraaz Kazi
Oprah Winfreys citation:
“Forgiveness is giving up the hope that the past could have been any different, it’s accepting the past for what it was, and using this moment and this time to help yourself move forward.” — Oprah Winfrey

Three years back on this day, I had my first book launch in the middle of a crowd that turned up to support an author who was no one till a day before — feeling nostalgic with Tuhin A. Sinha.
