The Purpose of Life

In this era,where most of the people are trying to chase materialistic pleasure,I was surprised to see some youth discussing about life and it's meaning.While I was walking past through them, I overheard them talking about karma, destiny and spiritual enlightenment.I stopped,went near them and I asked about the subject of discussion.They told me that they were discussing about life and it's meaning.Then, a short bespectacled boy with a blonde hair stepped forward and asked me the following question: I have seen a lot of your blog posts where I see you writing a lot about life and the qualities which one should possess.Let me ask you a kind of deep question,'What is the purpose of life?'

 Suddenly, his mom came to call him and he went to his home as quickly as his question had approached me. Well, I thought about it and have finally come to a conclusion;there are two purposes of life:

1. To become a better person.

2. To help as many people as possible.

Just think about it for a few seconds, you have so many resources at your disposal, you have such a vast amount of potential within you, even technology is helping you to improve yourself in areas of productivity and creativity, then don't you think that owe yourself the responsibility to become better every single day?

Let me give you a very hypothetical situation; imagine you are on your deathbed and around your death bed you are surrounded by your unfulfilled dreams, your wasted talents and that skill which you never tried to polish. They are looking at you with large angry eyes and saying that only you could have given us life and now we must die with you. So if you die today what all dreams will be left behind? We have got to strive every single day to become a better version of ourselves. Let me give you one of my favourite quotes to motivate you 'lf you want something which you never got, then you gotta do something which you never did, and in order to do something which you never did, you've gotta become someone you've have never been.'

Now let me talk about the second purpose of your life, which is, you should help as many people as possible. Now let me give you that same deathbed example. When you will be on your death bed, what would be your most cherished thing? Is it going to be the money which you made, or the fame which you accumulated or the luxury with which we lived at that time? You would only have one thing to cherish and that is the impact which you had on others. So many people have helped us who are not with us anymore. So can't we repay them by helping others who are in need of it very badly? The world will remember you on the basis of how much lives were you able to touch upon. If you want to be immortal then there is only way and that is by helping others because of which others will remember you even when you are not there in this world.

I hoped you liked this post and hope that that boy will be satisfied by my reply. Do share this to help others.

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 …
