The Power of Being Good

Since a couple of days a question has been revolving in my mind. The question is-What happened to 'good'? During my childhood days, I used to hear a lot about the word 'good'. Whenever a person asked me the question regarding what kind of a person I am, I would always reply in a boastful manner to him that I am a good boy. We were all born and bought up in a place where 'good' manners were given the utmost priority in our lives. We always had a desire to become 'good' citizens of our respective countries. But now, after all these years, I feel that somewhere along the line, the word 'good' is losing it's significance. The word which was once considered as one of the best words, is slowly being replaced by words like'cool', 'great', 'amazing', etc. Now having said that, I don't mean that the replaced words are not decent. It's just that those words are being used more frequently than it should have, given the kind of magnitude it holds.
Now in the next 30-45 seconds, let me tell you what a good person actually means

  • It means that he is a person who values his relationships and remains true to his words.
  • It means that he is a person who does not run away from hard times, but rather embraces it, since he acknowledges the fact that it will only make him stronger from the inside.
  • It means that he is a person who seeks more growth, and not more things.
  • It means that he is a person who behaves in a graceful manner.
  • It means that he is a person who always has the hunger to improve himself in a comprehensive manner.
  • It means that he is a person who gives nothing but his very best in the work he does and delivers more than is expected.
  • It means that he is a person who will not be brainwashed in believing in the status quo.
  • It means that he is a person who reaches out to others and tries to strike a constructive conversation with others to make new friends and increase his circle of influence.
Hope I have been of help to you. Share this message to all the good people around you to make them realise how important they are. Thank you.

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 …
