The Need For Motivation

There are days when we don't feel like doing what we ought to do. There are times when the only thing which seems to surround us is the darkness, cast by failure. Even the greats had had their shares of lows in their life. So what is the thing which drives a person even when his/her chips are down? What is that force which moves a person to his/her dreams, even when everyone else seems to have given up hopes on him? There maybe different terms given by different people. The spiritual group would give one name while the opulent class may coin another term. But if you ask me, I would call it as motivation.

It is the thing which acts as a catalyst to get your energy level and your subsequent actions to a whole another level. Do you think the legends were feeling lethargic while working on their respective crafts? Do you reckon Roger Federer would have won his 19th Grand Slam, had he not loved the process of sweating it out for hours in the practice courts? Maybe some might have views which could be very much opposite to mine.

Well, I maybe wrong. I've never claimed my opinions to be totally right. But don't you feel that motivation is one of the biggest element behind one's success. Every single day when we get up in the morning, we've got a quick decision to make out of the possible 2 options- Either to go back to the dreamland or get up and do the things required. Now I presume that you fall in the later category. So what do you think is the reason behind others pressing the snooze button when the morning alarm rings?

The answer is simple- They lack the motivation to get up. They don't know what will they be doing after getting up from the bed. It is motivation which helps you to achieve your personal freedom. It is motivation which energizes and pumps you up when you encounter a new challenge in life. It presents a reason on why you've got to do a specific thing. I don't know what your 'Why' is. It might be to get out of destitution, or making your parents proud, or proving others wrong who had doubted on your skills and abilities or to bring light to others' life or whatever. You must have observed a sea- change in the way you respond to the obstacles if you are motivated enough to wither any storm which comes in your way.

I personally like to read positive books and articles to motivate myself. Even when I write articles in this blog, it fuels me to walk the talk. 'The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari' is the most inspiring book I've ever come across in my life and I highly recommend you to read it. The day when you get motivated, I am sure that you will achieve great heights, but I urge you that when you find people who are exactly in the same position you ones used to find yourself to be, please make sure that you help them.

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…
