Desire for life

There’s always that desire for life that’s better than the one you have now.

When you do try to stay in your comfort zone, you never truly feel comfortable. There’s always that nagging feeling that you could be doing more. The more we try to stay comfortable today, the more uncomfortable we’ll be tomorrow.

There really is no destination, only exploring, exploring and exploring. Stop doing all that shit you know you shouldn’t be doing and start doing all the shit you know you should be doing. Those who succeeded, succeeded not because they were certain that they were going to succeed but they didn’t let uncertainty stop them. So rethink and start doing.

L 766

If we do not believe we can make it, we will not get the resources we need to make it. The moment we believe, the gates are opened and a flood of energy is unleashed the same way as we find in some treasure hunt.

Keep exploring step by step and you will get the clues and the resources. Both hope and despair are self fulfilling prophecies.

L 760

Birds of a feather do flock together.

Be sure you’re in the flock that thinks right.

Don’t let negative thinkers pull you down to their level. Let them slide by, like the water from the proverbial duck’s back.

Cling to people who think progressively. Move upward with them.

You can do it, simply by thinking right. Be careful about your source of advice.

L 756

In Mahabharat, Karna asks Lord Krishna – “My mother left me the moment I was born. Is it my fault I was born an illegitimate child?

I did not get the education from Dhronacharya because I was considered not a Kshatriya.

Parsuraam taught me but then gave me the curse to forget everything when he came to know I was Son of Kunthi belong to Kshatriya.

A cow was accidentally hit by my arrow & its owner cursed me for no fault of mine.

I was disgraced in Draupadi’s Swayamvar.

Even Kunthi finally told me the truth only to save her other sons.

Whatever I received was through Duryodhana’s charity.

So how am I wrong in taking his side ???”

**Lord Krishna replies, “Karna, I was born in a jail.

Death was waiting for me even before my birth.

The night I was born I was separated from my birth parents.

From childhood, you grew up hearing the noise of swords, chariots, horses, bow, and arrows. I got only cow herd’s shed, dung, and multiple attempts on my life even before I could walk!

No Army, No Education. I could hear people saying I am the reason for all their problems.

When all of you were being appreciated for your valour by your teachers I had not even received any education. I joined Gurukula of Rishi Sandipani only at the age of 16!

You are married to a girl of your choice. I didn’t get the girl I loved & rather ended up marrying those who wanted me or the ones I rescued from demons.

I had to move my whole community from the banks of Yamuna to far off Sea shore to save them from Jarasandh. I was called a coward for running away!!

If Duryodhana wins the war you will get a lot of credit. What do I get if Dharmaraja wins the war? Only the blame for the war and all related problems…

Remember one thing, Karna. Everybody has Challenges in life to face.

LIFE IS NOT FAIR & EASY ON ANYBODY!!!

But what is Right (Dharma) is known to your Mind (conscience). No matter how much unfairness we got, how many times we were Disgraced, how many times we Fall, what is important is how you REACTED at that time.

Life’s unfairness does not give you license to walk the wrong path…

Always remember, Life may be tough at few points, but DESTINY is not created by the SHOES we wear but by the STEPS we take.

L 752

One at a time. The 100%

What does that mean?

It’s the secret to success. We have a tendency to start various projects or tasks and work on them with completion at different stages. Sometimes leaving the project midway as close to 99% and keep hopping to another one that interests you.

Change your working style. Make it a habit to finish the project single mindedly upto 100%, you have taken and then only proceed with the other one. It will give you a feel of success and step by step you will proceed towards success.

Start applying this mantra and you will feel accomplished.

L 748

Khow Thyself.

Never sell yourself short. When Success is concerned, people are measured by the size of their thinking. Greatest human weakness is self deprecation i.e. selling oneself short. Never sell yourself short. You are bigger than you think.

It’s well to know our inabilities as this shows us the areas in which we can make improvements.

The only thing that counts about one’s vocabulary is the effect his words and phrases have on his own and other’s thinking.

We don’t think in words and phrases. We think only in pictures and images. Words are the raw materials of thought.

Big thinkers are specialist in creating positive, forward looking, optimistic pictures in their own minds and in the minds of others. To think big we must use words and phrases which produce big, positive mental images.

L 747

Start with Why

An organization’s why comes from the founder and their beliefs. This is often something they believe long before their organization exists. It’s a cause that drives them constantly.

Learner’s clubs why is the acquisition of new knowledge on a regular basis and inspiring others to keep learning new things and concepts. Learning makes us intellect and helps improve us in decision making.

How we do it is gaining new knowledge from whatever sources we can books, quotes we found somewhere around or while discussions on various topics with other learned people and professionals, whereas social media and internet is a new source of learning these days.

What we do is inspiring others and keep them motivated to achieve more and learn more.

People don’t buy what you do, they buy why you do it. 5GB MP3 player Vs 1000 songs in your pocket. Creative told us WHAT their product was and Apple told us WHY we need it.

This relationship defines the difference between the Vision and a mission statement. The vision is the purpose whereas the mission is how the company will work towards its vision.

Leadership requires two things a vision of the world that does not yet exist and the ability to communicate it.

The leader sits at the top of the cone at the start, the point of WHY, while the HOW types sit below and are responsible for actually making things happen. The leader imagines the destination and how types find the route to get there.

The goal is to hire those who are passionate for your why, your purpose, cause or belief and who have the attitude that fits your culture.

When you hire people who believe what you believe, success just happens. You don’t hire for skills you hire for attitude.

Great companies don’t hire skilled people and motivate them, they hire already motivated people and inspire them.

So start finding the Why of your life which will definitely guide you towards the way to success. Your How can change and have enlarged view but keep sticking to your Why.

From the global bestseller book Start with Why by Simon Sinek.

Thanks to the Booklet Guy Amrut Deskmukh for making things little easy to learn.

L 746

“Underneath he’s probably a very nice guy. Most folks are.”

Remember those two short sentences next time someone declares war on you. Hold your fire.

The way to win in situations like this is to let the other fellow blow his stack, and then forget it.

Remember, when someone throws the verbal tornado or tongue lashings on you, you are just a guy who gave him a chance to get something out of his system.

L 745

Interest, enthusiasm is the critical factor to achieve anything.

With a positive, optimistic and cooperative attitude a person with an IQ of 100 will earn more money, win more respect, and achieve more success than a negative, pessimistic, uncooperative individual with an IQ of 120.

Just enough sense to stick with something – a chore, task, project – until it’s completed, pays off much better than idle intelligence, even if idle intelligence be of genius calibre.

For stickability is 95 percent of ability.

L 744

Most of us make two basic errors:

1. We underestimate our own brain power.

2. We overestimate the other fellow’s brain power.

Because of these errors many people sell themselves short. But along comes the fellow who isn’t concerned about intelligence and bags the job.

What really matters is not how much intelligence you have but how you use what you have.

The thinking that guides your intelligence is much more important than how much intelligence you have.

L 742

Remember, you have the capacity to choose. CHOOSE Life! Choose Love! Choose Health!

You do not have to be influenced by destructive heterosuggestion. All of us have suffered from it in our childhood and in our teens.

Auto suggestion is a means releasing you from the mass of negative verbal conditioning.

You must make certain to give your subconscious only suggestions which heal, bless, and elevate to inspire you in all your ways.

L741

Pass it on….whatever you have gained and possess. Just pass it on. As it is rightly said the only thing you can expand by giving is ‘Knowledge’.

It’s not just theoretical knowledge but also includes all kinds of skills. Whatever you have learnt at any stage of your life, just share and pass on to others.

May be in this process, you may gain some unpolished diamond, which can be polished and shine to benefit the entire human race. So your efforts may not go in vain.

“कोशिश करने वालों की कभी हार नहीं होती। “

“Those who try never get defeated.”

L 740

The treasure house is within you.

Your subconscious has the answer to all your problems.

Lull yourself to sleep every night with the idea of perfect health and your subconscious, being your faithful servant will obey you.

Every thought is a cause. Every condition is an effect.

You are like a captain navigating a ship You must give the right orders.

Your subconscious mind takes you at your word and sees to it. Affirm, “I can do all things through the power of my subconscious mind.

The law of life is the law of belief. Do not believe in things to harm or hurt you. Believe in the power of your subconscious to heal, inspire, strengthen and prosper you.

Change your thoughts. You change your destiny.

When you take a no-nonsense decision towards attaining a goal, you sign up fully and keep moving towards it, not minding whatever is flung in your way.

Making the no-nonsense decision is important, because, without it, you will quit at the slightest of obstacles that cross your path.

According to Winston Churchill, success consists of going from failure to failure without loss of enthusiasm. No one gets to the top of the mountain without falling on his or her face, over and over again.

The only failure is quitting. Everything else is just information gathering.

If you try to live your life wrapped up in your stories like most folks do — you don’t have money, you are not good enough, you can’t quit your job, you are lazy; etcetera — and trudging through life with your head down and clinging to your false beliefs, chances are you won’t be able to see the infinite sea of opportunities surrounding you.

Countless, awesome versions of reality surround you, but if you stay set in your ways and committed to your stories about who you are and what your reality looks like, you will end up scratching only the surface of all that’s available to you every moment.

Life is an illusion created by your perception, and you can change it the moment you chose to. Just focus on a new illusion, a new reality.

हँसो तो मुस्कुराती है ज़िंदगी
रोने से आँसू बहाती है ज़िंदगी!

प्यार दो तो संवर जाती है ज़िंदगी,
हाथ बढ़ाओ तो पास आती है ज़िंदगी!!

जिस नजर से देखो वैसी नजर आती है ज़िंदगी
नजरिया बदलते ही बदल जाती है ज़िंदगी!!!

Never in the history of the Universe was there such a storm or the darkest night after which the Sun did not show up!!!

If you think you are going through a turbulent period for you and/or you think that there is only darkness around, do not fight it. You will waste a lot of energy and you won’t even notice when the sun appears. Accept that hard times have come to your life but do not fight them.

WAITING THROUGH A DIFFICULT PERIOD OF YOUR LIFE IN HIGH SPIRITS IS THE ONLY WISE DECISION.

If you keep calm and mindful, you will surely see some light in a short time. ☄ The light is best seen in the dark. What is more, only a good mood can help you, as bad certainly won’t.

“Meditation — sitting still and thinking nothing — has a lot of benefits, is stupidly simple and surprisingly hard.

Its goal is to quieten your mind long enough so you can connect to the Source Energy and listen in on your inner guidance. It brings you into the present moment, raises your frequency, opens you up to receiving unlimited information and ideas, relaxes you, relieves stress, strengthens your intuition and your ability to focus, allows you to hear your inner voice more clearly, fills you with light and love, puts you in a good mood and helps you love yourself.

So, learn to meditate. It will do you a world of really good.

When you think about how well-planned and smooth-running the universe you live in is, you can’t help but realize that it didn’t just begin randomly. It was created by an intelligent mind — a Universal Intelligence.

Everything in nature has a place and a purpose, and it works together in its intricately interwoven and compatible way. The Universal Intelligence or the Source Energy is incredibly smart.

Your mind works like that of the Source Energy. Your thoughts are the most powerful tools that you have. You think, so you are able to create awesomeness. Your thoughts essentially equate to your reality. To think what you want to think is to think the truth, regardless of appearances. Your thoughts and your beliefs change your reality, so if you want to change your reality, change your beliefs.

The moment you have the audacity to start believing in the not-yet-seen, your reality will begin to shift. Note that it is not your job to know how your dream reality will be created.

Your job is to know what dream reality you want and to be open to discovering and receiving how you will go about creating it.

Discover your life’s purpose.

Your life’s journey is different from that of anyone else’s, and ultimately, you want to get to a place where you feel happy, most alive and most like your true self.

So to discover your purpose, detach yourself from you and analyze your unique abilities from the “outside,” make a move when action is required to realize your dreams, do your best wherever you find yourself with the understanding that the “good” and the “bad” experiences on your journey all contribute to your final destination; and build your dream life copying what works for other people.

Learning 719

Love yourself unconditionally and ferociously.

See yourself as perfect.

Like the river that’s curving and twisting around topology, moving fast at some places and slowing down at others, understand that you are on a journey that has no beginning, no middle, and no end.

Understand that there can be no wrong twists or turns on your journey. There is just being, and that’s all that you need to be. It’s the reason you are here.

If you shy away from who you truly are, the world would end up you-less.

You are the only you there is and ever will be.
