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.

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…
