They say music has no language and it is beyond barriers. If you ask me, it’s quite true. I do events across the world and make audiences of all races dance to the music I use during my motivational talks. I love music, so much that I once had my friend gift me a collection of 100 of my favorite Hindi tracks for my birthday. It plays in my car all the time now. If you have attended any of my leadership or stress management talks, you would know what I am talking about 🙂 .. Hence, a list of my favorite and super motivational songs, both Hindi and English had to be there on my blog! Read More
Love is one of the most breathtakingly beautiful emotions one can experience. It can literally and figuratively rock your world, if you are really lucky. And it can make your world pretty rocky, if you are being stupid. Why then, am I making such a strange request, that you delay falling in love! Because, love alone isn’t enough. It is not everything. But most people don’t realize this until much later. And because it is very easy to mistake every other emotion in the world for love, when one is specifically looking to be in love.
Let me first tell you all the things (I learned all these years) that love is NOT:
The biggest curse that any family could face in today’s times is ‘when any of its family members is addicted to some substance e.g. Alcohol, Drugs or any of similar genre’. Very often family members write to me in super exhaustion- ‘Do anything but cure my son/ daughter’. Forget about the family progress, even basics of life go awry for those families. Strange na that life expects one to have many good habits to be super successful in life but only one bad addiction can render one perpetually drowned in abyss of gloom (not only for oneself but also for the entire family). Addiction could be to anything – smoking, drinking, drugs, sex, internet, gaming, sitcoms (Netflix) and Mobile phone etc. Sometimes, to people. And sometimes also to sleeplessness.
Have you been troubled with your propensity to lazy around all day, not get any work done and then feel bad about it at the end of the day? Mostly it happens when the habit of processing mediocre, useless stuff as day dreaming, TV, Mobile phone, over sleeping & time-pass friends sediments itself as a Vriti (tendency) into our psyches. If you very honestly feel that you are closer to becoming a master procrastinator THIS very implementable post is for you only. Come on, do not be lazy. Read this blog post right till the end. I promise- you’ll dig something unique for your own self. Massive dreams require super massive efforts. And the sooner you start looking for real solutions and ways to deal with procrastination and beat laziness out of your system; the better it will be. See it is simple- ‘Energetic people are more successful’ (Only exception- Mr Beans) 🙂 .
Just imagine for once-‘If we were to take sex out of our lives. I mean; we keep it only for pro-creation and not for anything more’. Imagine! Scary it will be from the world economy point of view. The candle light dinners at five star restaurants, lagoons, the Valentine’s Day industry, the travels to exotically romantic places, the red wines in costly glasses, the premium gifts, a large part of high end fashion, travel and hospitality industry will take a huge hit. A lion’s part our economy gets it spread in a way that two people could impress upon each other and then make it out in some corner. Precisely the reason why media glorifies sex a bit extra much than it really is. Casual sex and its pitfalls are never highlighted because no one makes money out of it!
If you look at it closely, life may appear like one big hurdle race, wrought with obstacles at every point. And doesn’t matter which walk of life we belong to – the hurdle race will always be there. If you want some literal examples – we can all look at the sports section of our newspapers. It always tells tales of extreme obstacles overcome with extreme will power. In the times of the lows in life, these stories of perseverance can go a long way in boosting morale, notching up the inspiration levels and give us a lot of hope.
