From A Going One To Some One…

images

When You wake up a day and find that I’m not in the world,

Remember how much I wanted to be around and with you desired to get old…

Accept my life on earth was over,My days have been ended

All happened what destiny intended My life sheet had all been tilled…

Just think of me with smiles ,Hold not the bad ones but little good memories

If After death I remain in your heart, Trust me, We’ll never be apart…

For all the love I held all time I’ll be there by your side,

Watching, standing by you ,I’ll always remain your guide…

What if Even I died…

And if we never meet again or say the word goodbye

Please, don’t have a broken heart, Trust me ,We will not be apart…

Remember my anger, Recall my pointless tales,

Remember Whenever I hurt you, For me it was a bitter heartbreak…

So if I die tomorrow and the sun for you don’t shine

Just look up towards the sky ,I’ll share with you the Great Divine…

 

What If I Die Tomorrow….

The Meaning of Success

define-success

I have lot of money, the count of my assets has filled me with a feel of joy, Yes Now I am successful!! Does it goes same for a Saint, who thinks that he is successful because he has reached to the highest level of detachment from all the worldly pleasure. A man who is a writer ,doesn’t live a life of leisure , sits alone and smiles when he count the people who appreciated him for his work, a sense of being successful runs through his veins.

I have written on this subject earlier too, Success is something that we desire the most in our lives. Every passing day we count our efforts in the direction of being successful. Everybody is in a rate race of getting the tag of “Successful”. When we find the lack of something in our life then achieving that becomes our uttermost purpose, and such attainment gives us a sense of being Successful.Success is nothing but our search of happiness in those areas of life where we are lacking and want more. The sense of fulfillment in any aspect of life is a form of success.

A passing thought says that Success is nothing but our efforts of filling the gap in our lives that might have existed since long. A person who was born with a silver lined fortune but grew up watching family fights, lack of support and love will definitely feel that money is not that which gives a peace of being successful but this is the love and affection of family which makes someone successful, he will look for love everywhere and his success will be getting such people into his life.But a kid who has a loving mother but he begs on the road to get a meal , will think that having money is about being successful rest everything follows.

One of the most important key steps to achieving success in life is to know the meaning of success for your personal life. In reality, the true meaning of success goes far beyond the common definitions such as having a lot of money, being wealthy, having a lot of tangibles and earned degrees. Quite the opposite: true success in life cannot be measured with the above-named factors, but instead with the amount of people that are able to live a better and more advanced life because of what you created. This is the meaning of success. Not the trophies people are collecting in their lives. Media and society let us often conclude that living a successful life means to be extraordinarily wealthy and have a lot of tangibles. But the meaning of success is to live a happy life and to make this world a better place for everyone.The desires are never ending and so the urge of being successful, we are successful when our good deeds touch the lives of other and bring smile on a face not tears.

Be Successful first to meet your necessities first, Be successful to fill all the gaps in your life. But in the process of being successful , don’t be unsuccessful in making someone smile. The worst exchange in the race of being successful is compromising with your values and hurting the good ones who meet you in this journey. Stay Honest, Stay Good and Rest Will Follow……

As I always say- Do Good and Expect Good to Happen!! Life is a Blessing for Those Who Makes World a Better Place for Others.

The Lessons That We Learn In Hard Way..

file.jpg

“People never learn anything by being told,
they have to find out for themselves.”
―Paulo Coelho

Few days back, I woke up with a text about a close one’s sudden demise. Few colleagues and friends called me as soon as they got the news and offered their help.In the midst of my sorrow I now realize this tragic loss made me to realize certain things.First, time has its own unrevealed mystery.  Second, In any case our lives don’t stop , Our inner selves are strong enough to heal themselves with the passing time.  And finally, just as it is difficult to see all the opportunities life gives you until you’re looking back, it is virtually impossible to fully understand certain life circumstances until they actually happen to you.

It’s a variation of this final point that I want to explore further today , Few lessons that we learn in the hard way-

  1. The people you lose remain a part of you-

Someday we all have to face the reality of loss , it can happen due to any worldly reason. And as life goes on, days rolling into nights, it becomes clear that you never really stop missing someone special who’s gone, you just learn to live around the gaping hole of their absence and somehow stop expecting them to come in your way.

When you lose someone you can’t imagine living without, your heart breaks wide open, and the bad news is you never completely get over the loss.  You will never forget them.  However, in a backwards way, this is also the good news.  They will live on in the warmth of your broken heart that doesn’t fully heal back up, and you will continue to grow and experience life, even with your wound.  It’s like badly breaking an ankle that never heals perfectly, and that still hurts when you dance, but you dance anyway with a slight limp, and this limp just adds to the depth of your performance and the authenticity of your character.

  1. Being Happy in the life is more about finding its meaning-

Pursuing happiness is not at all the same as being happy, which is a fleeting feeling dependent on momentary circumstances.  If the sun is shining, by all means bask in it.  Happy times are great and often fun-filled, but happy times pass, because time passes.  This is something we rarely grasp at first and we again start seeking for happiness…

So better to find the meaning of your life and do something that gives peace to your soul. Desires are good but we have to put a stop somewhere to enjoy that we have in present.What you are really pursuing is meaning – living a meaningful life.  It starts with your “why.”  (Why are you doing what you’re doing with your life?)  When your “why” is meaningful, you are pursuing happiness.  There will be times when things go so wrong that you barely feel alive.  And there will also be times when you realize that being barely alive, on your own terms, is better than living a lifeless existence for eighty years on someone else’s terms.  The pursuit isn’t all or nothing; it’s all AND nothing, with ups and downs and worthwhile lessons along the way.

  1. Seeking validation from others invalidates YOU.

Has the fear of rejection held you back?  Have you ever been so fearful of what others might think or say about you that it kept you from taking positive action?  I bet you’re shaking your head, “yes.” It’s time to change your mindset…

Today, the only person you should try to be better than is the person you were yesterday.  Prove yourself to yourself, not others.  You are GOOD enough, SMART enough, FINE enough, and STRONG enough.  You don’t need other people to validate you; you are already valuable.If someone says “no” to you, or if someone says something negative about you, that doesn’t change anything about YOU.  The words and opinions of others have no real bearing on your worth.  Certainly it can be helpful and desirable to make a good impression in certain situations, yet it’s not the end of the world when you are faced with rejection. It’s great to receive positive feedback, but it simply doesn’t always happen.  That’s OK though, because you know where you’re headed and you know your true worth does not depend on the judgment of others.  When you set out to make a true difference in life, there will be those who disagree with you, those who ignore you, and those who flat out reject your ideas and efforts.  Look beyond them, step confidently forward, do what must be done, and let people make their own stories.

  1. Regret hurts far worse than fear.

When we give in to our fears, we have a harder time looking at ourselves in the mirror.  Sadly, very few of us escape learning this lesson firsthand.  If you have already experienced this a time or two, you know what you need to do.

It is only when we risk losing that we truly open the possibility to win.  Whether it is quitting your job to build a business, running a marathon, or traveling to unknown parts of the world, any worthy endeavor requires risk, struggle and sacrifice.  Some of these things may even terrify you, but ask yourself if these fears are stronger than the most powerful of fears, the fear of a wasted life?

If you’ve never lost your mind, you’ve never followed your heart.  It’s better to look back on life and say, “I can’t believe I did that,” than to look back and say, “I wish I did that.”  Don’t let time pass you by like a hand waving from a train you desperately want to be on.  Don’t spend the rest of your life thinking about why you didn’t do what you can do right now.  Live your life.  Take risks.  Feel passion.  Discover love. Stay Foolish. Go Crazy. 

Set yourself free to follow the instinct of your heart.

  1. Life is too unpredictable for rigid expectations.

When you stop predicting and expecting things to be a certain way, you can appreciate them for what they are.  Ultimately you will realize that life’s greatest gifts are rarely wrapped the way you expected. 🙂 

Let situations come in your life, let the fate play its role, With a positive attitude and an open mind, you will find that life isn’t necessarily any easier or harder than you thought it was going to be; it’s just that “the easy” and “the hard” aren’t exactly the way you had anticipated, and don’t always occur when you expect them to.  This isn’t a bad thing; it makes life interesting. Trust me Life is Good Anyway… 

Ninety-nine percent of the time life delivers the experiences that are most helpful for your personal growth.  How do you know it’s the experience you need?  Because it’s the experience you’re having.  The only question is:  Will you embrace it and grow, or fight it and fade?????

  1.  Hardships are inevitable and helpful.

Nobody in this world is going to blindside you and hit you as hard as life will. Sometimes life will beat you to the ground and try to keep you there if you let it.  But it’s not about how hard life can hit you, it’s about how hard you can be hit while continuing to move forward.  That’s what true strength is, and that’s what winning the game of life is all about.When you have a lot to cry and complain about, but you prefer to smile and take a step forward instead, you are growing stronger.  Work through your struggles and hardships.  Even when it feels like things are falling apart, they’re not.  Take control of your emotions before they take control of you.  Everything will fall into place eventually.  Until then, learn what you can, laugh often, live for the moments, and know that it’s all worthwhile in the end.

At Last, the key is to stay good and do good to others, Rest will follow. The Most important lessons of life come with harsh , heart wrenching experience. Take the life as a learning school and welcome everything that comes your way!! 

Happy Living!! Happy Learning!!

My 8 Commitments to Myself..

 

download.jpg

“Commitment”- This 10 letters word is loaded with a lot of responsibilities, realization of facts, hopes of future, Assurance, A Series of Positive Trials to Make Something Happen and much more is hidden in this word. Whenever we feel the urge of bonding ourselves in the pursuit of doing something then we give the commitment. Commitment is a kind of positive force. I have given many commitments to people and tried my best to act accordingly in most of the cases. Sometimes we have to sacrifice a lot in order to live up to our commitments. This time I decided to use this force in my favour, Here are few commitments that we should made to our own selves –

1-Being True to Who I Am/You Aredownload (2).jpg

A person is a layered entity.  Sometimes we make changes in ourselves to please the people around and as per the time. There is a huge difference between “being true” and “correcting ourselves while being wrong” . There is nothing wrong in adopting the change until we don’t loose our real self. Be Real to Your Yourself. Do What Gives You a Reason to Smile and Be Proud of!

2-Stand for Your Own Set of Rules – Every one of us have our own set of ethics, principles and moral codes. Live true to them every day. Time always comes with 2 options for Everyone, 1- Act Ethical 2- Act Unethical. Initially we notice no harm in adopting the easy Way 2 ,but Way 1 is way better than Way 2. Act as per the ethics, Morals & Humanity. Life will never give you a chance to feel guilty.

3-Create Life’s handbook- letter3.jpg

I decided to devote a fine day to make my handbook comprises of my Values, My Professional Goals, My Monetary Goals ( Short Term and Long Term) , Personal Goals, The Things to Do That Make Me Happy, Travel Goals, Personal Strengths, The Loopholes to Work Upon , The Habits to Quit. We get a path to act when we write down my plans. The handbook is a road map to build on a strategy to achieve.

4-Let Go of Attachments- download (1).jpg

The attached strings bring us down many times in life. Don’t fixate yourself with a status, fame , possession etc.Same goes with the people too, Don’t be too much attached to anyone because it forces us to do a lot of the unwanted things followed with the fear of loosing, depression and much more. Create bonding but stay practical in your approach. These are impermanent and will ultimately disappear one day when you die. Focus on growing and living life to the fullest instead.

5-Do a Kind Deed a Day- What is something you can do today that will make the world a better place? Go and do it.

6-Don’t Settle I am in full plan for not to settle for less. Don’t settle for someone you don’t like as your partner. Don’t settle for a job you don’t like. Don’t settle for friends who make you feel like a lesser person. Don’t settle for a weight you are unhappy with. Go for what you really want.

7-Live Life & Love Life- untitled

Many times in life we give so much of value to others and somehow we forget to live our life. Life is truly good. I always find living to be a fascinating experience.. There’s so much we don’t know out there about this world, so much is there to be experienced in life.it’s just wonderful. We have a life that millions of people dream of, then why not to enjoy it.

8-Make a Source of Alternate Income- Money is not everything in life, but it has a significant role to play in the life of each one of us. Don’t be dependent on Salary and Fixed Deposits. Use your expertise to generate a source of continuous alternate income. Create a business, that can keep running even if you are not physically present there all the time to monitor.

As I always mention, Never do wrong with anybody and enjoy this blissful life at the fullest. Don’t do wrong because in some way or other What Goes Around, Comes Around!!

You Fail Only When You Decide Not to Try- The Sky of Limitless Possibilities.

7-Eye-Opening-Truths-You-Will-Learn-On-Your-Journey-to-Personal-Development-696x465

Hi!!  If you ask someone-“Do you want to fail?” “Do you want to make a mistake?  – What will be the answer of that person- I am sure it will be” Nobody wants to be failed in life” . Right? But despite making all the right, “in place” decisions , sometimes a person feels confused and out of track. That “Something is missing” feeling soaks all the energy and a person feels like giving up. There are times when things just don’t go your way and sometimes it happens to that extent when a person finally gives up and think that this was not his cup of tea. I read somewhere that –”Sometimes you have to fail thousand times before succeeding”. I firmly believe in this. Don’t be so quick to throw all your efforts away. Life has a lot to teach us and offer us in various forms.  It’s just the beginning and you will learn more as you go. My little experiences taught me that sometimes we have to review our recent activities in order to succeed without blaming others.

Delay in success doesn’t mean the failure. My motive is not to tell you an out of the world story here, but just to repeat those few points that we might have overlooked. Success is a process of continuing efforts, here adding some thought to “Never Quit Approach” and clear the dust –

  1. Change comes When You Take the Charge of Your Deeds-

Whenever anything doesn’t do right , we look for the causes of the same. But mostly we end up with a handful of people to blame for all the things that went wrong in the process and hindered our way of success. Review is good but blaming others will never give you a chance to notice your short comings and eventually you will end up making no   development. The moment you claim personal responsibility over your life, you will learn the importance of steering your own ship. You will start to make decisions for yourself, and end up feeling less hateful and happier for the people around you.

2- Relationships are the Game Changers-

Relationships teach us a lot and have enough power to change a person completely. Nourishing relationships fuel your motivation to succeed and staying in toxic relationships are sure fire ways to fill your heart with negativity.  It is a widely accepted fact that we function well when we connect, collaborate, and share ourselves to other people. If we take a look at the other side of it- There are many people who succeeded in their life after suffering or learning from a terrible relationship. AT the same time there are people who succeeded when someone from their close family made them realize their responsibilities.  Choose your people wisely, It can either help you rise into your life or can break you suffer to the irrecoverable point.

  1. Life is a Learning School-

Learning doesn’t end at school, it doesn’t end at your college. Humans learn everyday throughout their lives. Learning shouldn’t ever be confined within the walls of a classroom. When we start noticing the learning around us, we notice that we know very less, this world has an ocean of wisdom . We enrich our experiences when we keep learning from the people and the happenings  around us. Failures also teach us something , may be another thing to be added into “Not to Do” list when we would try next time!!

  1. Big Achievers only Get though Big Troubles-

You will not be in any trouble if you don’t wish to grow and stay satisfied with your on going routine life, there will be no hassle if you don’t wish to rise in your life. There will be no need of getting out of your comfort zone, if you don’t wish to reach to new horizon. There will be no loss if you don’t wish to make profit and keep stuff safe inside the wall. Yes, life will not show up anything different if you are not willing. But will it be a meaningful life then?? I believe it will not. I hope you got my point- There is no gain without pain. We have to stretch our limits in order to get something that others don’t have.

  1. Money  is Not the Synonym of “Success”-

I am among those who never underestimate the value of money in life. It matters, even all the knowledge of the world doesn’t make any sense if you can’t earn your livelihood.  But money should not the only parameter to measure success. There comes a time in life, when a person feels like starting something for his self satisfaction  and mostly that satisfaction comes when we start something without considering the margin of monetary profit for ourselves. Earn enough to have good life but don’t forget that success, happiness, peace & health etc. don’t have so much to do with money. A common misconception in today’s capitalistic society, this view is shared by people who place great importance on wealth and material stuff.  You will realize that there are other forms of success too. Success isn’t based on your salary and job title, even success  includes your health, emotional well being and your relationships. These forms of success are the best source of long term happiness. Focus on making a balance life for yourself.

 

  1. Negative Experiences Are The Award Winning Teachers-

If your life goal is to avoid pain and suffering all the time – then you’ve already set the limit for your own growth. The point of negative experiences is to teach us the value of happy moments. To make us learn from our mistakes. Negative experiences are our best teachers. They help us grow into adults capable of fixing our own lives.

Your journey to success starts from the moment you change your limiting views about yourself.   There is so much you can do. You are more than just dust in the wind. You are here to mark your existence, to touch other people’s lives – you just need to find out how. Keep learning  and keep moving, because the delay in success doesn’t make you unsuccessful. Lean, Move, Be Patient and Give Time to Time.

Trust Your Journey of Life!!

Hello Folks!! Hope you are enjoying the newness of this week!! Today the thought that I am going to share with you is driven by the planning of my upcoming trip. Whenever we decide to visit a new place, We follow a process-
1- Decide Where to Go.
2- The Thoughts of Good things that we can get while going for this trip. In terms of Serenity , Peace, Views, Knowledge of Culture, Leisure Time, Break from Our Routine Schedules etc. etc. We start visualizing ourselves at that destination doing the things of our choice.
3- Planning & Execution
4- Believe that we planned well and Wait for the day to start.

images (1)

During this whole process ,we keep visualizing , we keep believing that the journey will be full of good memories and a refreshing one. We hold this thought in ourselves. Which is a form of the “Trust” that everything is going to be absolutely fantastic.Whenever we are on a road trip and have to shift our speed and gear as per the requirement of a turn then do we think that rest of the road will not be good? Or rest of the journey will not be good? No!! Right!! We treat the turn as a Turn only, It’s sharpness or a little shift in our speed & posture or change in our heart beat don’t give us the negative feeling about whole journey. We move forward with a Belief , We enjoy the ride!! Right!! Life is exactly same!!

Have you ever felt that Life is also a journey. Yes,Many say that Life is unplanned, I do agree!! We should be ready to welcome unexpected turns but at the same time we should be have a faith in Almighty that all whatever we get will lead us to a life of Abundance , Excitement,Full of Love , Glory and all the good things that we desire for.Duration of this journey of life is more than the duration of any other journey so there are more chances for change, improvement and shift in feelings. Life gives us many chances to experiment,to change the pace and decide where to go. Many good and bad incidents take place but any incident (Turn) is not big enough to think that rest of the journey will not be good. We should trust the process,We should trust our journey.As all days are not same in terms of weather and temperature so our lives!! Our motives throughout the passing years should be- Keep Moving, Have Faith, Stay Honest and Be Good to All. Rest all will be taken care by God, What goes around, comes around. So Focus on being a good human, Do Justice with all whom you come across. Have faith , in the end you will be in peace and your life will be exemplary good!!
Just Trust Your Journey!! Enjoy the Process and Stay Positive!! Good Thing Happen in Everybody’s Life!!

Connection!!

“Connecting” -“Connection”- ” Connected” …3 different words to represent a process of getting the uttermost state of well being. The first stage of establishing a connection with well being is to DISCONNECT ourselves from all those thoughts that prevent us from feeling good. Because if we want to witness any change in our outer world then it is important to change our inner state of mind first.  And to disconnect ourselves from negativity it’s not mandatory to stop the flow of thoughts . Close your eyes , let your thoughts run through your mind, let the thoughts come and go.. In this storm of thought you will surely get some good thoughts too, don’t stop there , just keep a note of those good thoughts in your mind and let the thoughts move. It will take time, once your realize that it’s done, you have gone through all the thought and incidences which were on your priority list then start eliminating all the negative thoughts .

For this job , I prefer to express my Gratitude for all the things that come to my way. I take some deep breaths and say to myself that” God is with me, when he is with me then no one can harm me. Everything happens for a reason, I have to move with the faith in my heart, that I am here to get all the best things and it’s a process, that I am going through to achieve something exceptionally good that I might not have  thought of. Thank you God for All the Good Things and Experiences”. I suggest people who are struggling in their lives to believe in God and Almighty , its nothing to do with the religion but Yes Faith brings Positivity and Positivity changes Our Lookout towards Life and Our Lookout changes Our Outer World.

qwe

It sounds old to few people but its truly amazing that When we start believing in Almighty , when We put our faith in the Creator of the World and surrender ourselves to the God then we get a positivity out of all the incidences, from each and everything around us we attract just positivity only: This positivity heals us and we start feeling good from inside . Practice feeling good from inside, initially do it intentionally , Captivate this feeling and make it your habit.

When you start feeling Good , then unintentionally you start “Connecting” yourself with the state of well being. Eventually you get “Connected” to this state of mind and establish the ” Connection” with Positivity ,Good Feelings and Start attracting Good things in your life. Have you ever noticed that When we think something ,then we get more alike thoughts , Feeling sad or Feeling Happy works on this concept only. We get alike thoughts every time whenever we think of something, So to be happy start feeling happy.

It’s all about our Connection with the Thoughts, It’s all about our Connection with the World, It’s all about our Connection , it’s all about Our Perception.

Stay Happy, Stay Connected to Good Thoughts!! Happy Week Ahead!!

Our Thoughts are Creating Our Future!!

Hi,

When many of the philosophers have emphasized on the fact that we can get what we desire for, then why does it happen that sometimes we have to loose the things that we desperately want in our lives? I spent many days in analyzing many events that occurred in the lives of my close ones in recent times.

One common fact among all the pleasant events was- We never thought that “What if it doesn’t turn up this way? we simply believed that it will surely happen” We emitted a lot of positive energy that floated into the universe and made it possible for us 🙂 .

The common fact among all the unpleasant events was- We were scared of the adverse scenario that “What if it doesn’t happen?” We spent much of our time in thinking that how it will be if we don’t get the desired outcome.We somehow emitted a lot of negative energy in the form of our thoughts that weighed more than the energy of our positive thoughts and we ended up getting the same negative result that we were worried about.

Everybody has the right to get all the things that he wishes for. There is certainly no limit of opportunities and fortune if we direct our energy in the right direction. As many say- When we truly wish for something , this universe conspires to help us in achieving the same. Believe in it! Our thoughts are not just words ,they are the powerful signals that we emit into the universe and the universe works in accordance of our thoughts. When we decide to start a new thing, let’s take the example of a dish that we want to prepare, We first visualize it how we want it to look and taste, accordingly we start our preparation. in 99% of the events of my life, I have felt the power of visualization. So start visualizing your dreams. Prevent yourself from thinking negative thoughts, sometimes it’s fine even if we are not positive because we are human and change in the thoughts is a very common process ,but don’t hold any negative thought, let it pass .. Let a positive thought take it’s place. Once your mind will be full of good and positive thoughts , it will give you a sense of Well being and circumstance will start moving in your favour.

download

When you are determined to achieve something then make it a practice to understand the signals of your own soul. At times, when we find ourselves in a non decisive position then sometimes its good to sit back and have a deep conversation with our inner selves. Ask your heart what it actually believes in, Ask your mind- What are the logic behind this particular desire, ask your soul – Is it actually what you want?  Once you get all your answer then make your precise goal and start believing in it. With the passes of time, once your desire will be strong enough, you will start noticing small signals from the universe that your desire will come true a day!! Thoughts create Beliefs , Beliefs create Actions and Actions create Our Future..Be Specific and Start Believing.

The things that happens beyond logic called Miracles. And miracles happen when we put our endless belief in something. Learn this before you loose something that matters a lot to you. Miracles happen! Just Have Faith!
