Astounding Yourself

Thomas Edison once said-'If we did all the things we are capable of doing, we will literally astound ourselves'. A brilliant insight. It has been observed that the biggest obstacle faced by a person in his/her journey towards self-development is not the obstacles thrown at him/her by the family, peers or society. These are something which we can easily overcome, provided that we are willing to fight our way through it. The problem is that one doesn't believe in oneself.

If you are going to achieve anything in your life, you have to convince a person that you have what it takes to get what you want. You have to convince  a person that no matter how bad it is, or how bad it gets, you are not gonna throw in the towel quickly. If you are able to convince that person all this, wonders will start happening in your life.

Well that person is not a sage or an opulent guy, but he is the person whom you see everyday in the mirror. Yes, it's you. Nobody else needs to convinced about your abilities other that you. You are not powerless, on the contrary, you are powerful beyond measure. The problem is that one does what he thinks he can do, not the things which he really can. Nobody is going to believe in you, until you start believing yourself.Surely, if you do it, the result which you will produce would definitely astound 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 …
