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.

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…

Pablo Picasso And The Lady

Once, one of the greatest painters of all times, Pablo Picasso was in a market place. A lady saw him and said 'Mr Picasso, it's great to see you. I am a big fan of yours'. He said 'Nice to meet you'.The lady pulled out a piece of paper and a pencil and she said 'Mr Picasso, can you do a bit of art for me? Can you do a bit of drawing for me'? She asked in a voice which didn't seem to take a No for an answer. Picasso said 'absolutely'.

 He quickly drew something and gave it to her. The lady looked at the drawing and she certainly was impressed by his art 'Oh Picasso, fantastic. This the best piece of drawing I've ever had', the lady said. After saying that, she starts walking away. Picasso called her and said 'Ah! my dear lady, that will be a million dollars.' The lady, obviously shell- shocked by that statement looked at him and said 'Picasso. A million dollars? It took you just 30 seconds to do that'. He said 'My d…

Don't Quit- Poem

Since last few days I've been listening to various poems by the budding poets around the globe and enjoyed most of them. But then I came across this one which was so serene and motivating, that I really couldn't resist myself from sharing it with you guys. It somewhat goes like this:

When things go wrong as they sometimes will When the road you're trudging seems all uphill When the funds are low and the debts are high And you want to smile, but you have to sigh. When care is pressing you down a bit,  Rest, if you must, but don't you quit. Life is queer with it's twists and turns, As everyone of us sometimes learns And many a failure turns about, When he might have won had he stuck it out; Don't give up though the pace seems low You may succeed with another blow Often the gold is nearer than, It seems to be a faint and faltering man. Often the struggler has given up When he might have captured the victor's cup And he learnt too late when the night slipped down, How close he …
