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.

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…
