Books.......Guiding the enlightened

Image result for books

The above title must have given you the idea about the topic which I am going to touch upon today i.e. books.I have always been a voracious reader and strongly recommend others to do the same.I have always loved to read self help books and the autobiographies of great people.Its not that I have any kind of animosity towards romantic or thriller genres,but it has never appealed me the way the above mentioned books do.

Whatever you want to become has been already written about,and guess what,its all available! Jim Rohn once said that successful people have libraries,while the average people have large TV sets.So I guess what he tried to suggest us was this-victims love entertainment whereas the leaders love education.I have always been fascinated in knowing the kind of obstacles they had to face and the undeterred will power which they mustered to conquer those challenges.

So I invite you to read some inspiring books which will push you,stretch you and mould your mindset in a positive way.It is said that the hand that puts down a great book is never the same again.The mind when stretched by a new idea finds itself difficult to go back to its original dimension.

I strongly recommend you to read the autobiographies of Mahatma Gandhi,Nelson Mandela and Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam because reading those books is nothing less than having a conversation with them.And like every great conversation,you walk out being a better human being.

A Visit to Orphanage and Old-Age home

Mere words won't be able to do justice to describe the kind of majestic experience which we had on that eventful day. A school trip is always a memorable one, but when it is to such a pious place, than it gets all the more interesting. To be honest, we went off from school in a picnic mode. We were all so excited and pumped up. We were sitting in the buses and there were mimicries being done and songs being sung.

Learning From Nature

The civilisation is trying to destroy it,
But for our children, we've got to preserve it.
The lush green grassland uplifts our mood,
We owe to it a lot as it provides us with nutritious food,
And helps to replenish water with its phenomenon called rain,
Equanimity is the thing which it helps us to maintain.
It rises above discrimination, giving plenty to all,
We humans can learn from it who cheer from others' fall.
Inspiring it is, service is its legacy,
Will we ever shed our ignorance and reach out to the nature ? Well, hopefully!

The last two words of this poem always ignites a sense of optimism within me that one day we will be able to comprehend the true value of nature rather than hurting it when it pleads for mercy; that one day we will take a moment to appreciate the beauty of the rainbow and the serenity of the sunrise ascending gently above the horizon rather than turning our backs onto it, missing out those small moments which really constitute a happy life.

The 2X3X Mindset

Does the title seems to be a bit abstruse. Let me break it down for you. This is something which I learned a few moths ago and guess what? It is doing wonders in my life! This principle states that if you want to double your income and your impact in your organisation, then you must triple your investment in your self-development. 

You can't be progressing in your career if you are not willing to work on yourself and strive to be a better version of yourself with each passing day. What you'll have 2 years from now, 5 years from now,10 years from now solely depends on what you become and what are the things which you are willing to sacrifice today.

 Your income hardly exceeds your self worth and once you acknowledge this very fact, you'll start realising that there is a very urgent need to start learning new skills and be very competitive.

There are innumerable things which are out there in the world which can aide you reach your desired position. Being a bibliophile, I strong…
