Happy New Year

2013 year has been a splendid year for all of us. If (some of you) are thinking otherwise about 2013 and feel that it was quite a tough year, then think again!

Every year (with time) brings new hope, brings new experiences, brings new confidence, brings new positive expectations, brings new aspirations and all these lead to new learnings, new lessons of life, humanity and happiness.

Tough time, mournful days and soreness are just imaginary words which doesn’t exists. These all are, I believe (I may be wrong) is state of mind. When we face tough times, it actually give us a chance to learn. It gives us chance to sharpen our mental knives. These situations make us tougher and we must learn from these conditions rather than blaming our time, current year or luck.

We all have learned a lot in these earlier flourishing years and will enjoy its returns till our death-bed. Every year teaches us something new and brings new challenges which makes us smarter, wiser and intellectual.

Year 2013 brought smiles on our lips, rejuvenated us, built new as well as strengthen relationships. We met old friends, erased our grudges with those who hurt us in the past, inspired many and got inspired, did mistakes and learned from those mistakes. In the midst of this topsy-turvy ride we never forgot to smile and never lost courage. We bounced back with a bang and achieved acme.

Today on the last day of this incredible 2013, I am personally grateful for all your tremendous support, precious guidance and life changing tips which made my year. We are entering into 2014 with beautiful treasured memories which will water our soul throughout our life.

I wish you a very beautiful, rewarding new year filled with positive thoughts, abundance, joy, and treasured moments.

May 2014 be your best year yet!

Please take care of yourself as you are apple of someone’s eyes.

Keep Smiling… 🙂

Get rid of Pessimism Web

Optimism and Pessimism, these two words can make or destroy people. Optimistic in life crops up positivity and always lead to better and happy life. While pessimists always struggle.

winchurchquoteOur own confidence depends on our society and people who surrounds us. Wherever we go, pessimists follow us just like our own shadows. If our colleagues or friends are pessimists then it may make a dent on our confidence as well. The best part is, just ignore them and concentrate on our work.

I read a story about Robert Fulton.

Robert Fulton invented the steamboat.

English: Robert Fulton, holding a watch fob in...

Photo credit: Wikipedia

On the banks of the Hudson River he was displaying his new inventions. The pessimists and the skeptics were gathered around to observe. They commented that it would never start. Low and behold, it did.

As it made its way down the river, the pessimists who said it would never go, started shouting, “It never would stop.”

What an attitude!

people-quoteHad Robert Fulton listened to his critics or had he caught in the web of pessimism, he wouldn’t have invented the steamboat.

It happens with all of us. Whenever we talk about new ideas, people raises their questions. Pessimists stand and start criticizing.

“You Will Never Reach Your Destination, If You Stop And Throw Stones At Every Dog That Barks. Better To Throw Biscuits And & Move On…”

Dhirubhai Ambani

Break this Pessimist barrier and move.

We must never respond to these situations or pessimism. Try your best to achieve your goals and change the world.

“When you have vision it affects your attitude. Your attitude is optimistic rather than pessimistic.”

Stop dancing to negative tunes

When I was a kid, I hardly used to go out of my home. Even when bell would ring I don’t dare to open the door.

I used to skip social gatherings, festive evenings etc. and even if I had to go (forcefully) and attend these, then hardly used to talk to any one there. This doesn’t mean, I was like ‘not-to-mingle’ person but I was worried, what people will say about me. How will they react once I start talking to them. Lots of questions would arise in my mind.

I was living in an isolated world.

It happens with every one of us. It must have happened with you, if not hats off to you. I wish I would be like you.

What will people say at my back’ put me in the isolation. I could not handle criticism. This word ‘Criticism’ made me shiver. It made me frightened. Socializing with people and rubbing shoulders with them for me was like walking alone in timorous and terrified midnight in the jungle.

I was living in the midst of Critics, their criticisms and people used to gossip about me. Unfortunately, I danced to their negative tunes.

“People deal too much with the negative, with what is wrong. Why not try and see positive things, to just touch those things and make them bloom?”

– Nhat Hanh

Before I move forward, let me ask you one simple question.

If you accidently caught in the marshland then what will you do to get out of it?

Yes, you guessed right!

You free your body and will try to grab some support and slowly try to come out of it. The more you make yourself rigid and stay there, the more you go deeper inside the marshy land. You know the result.

These negative people in our society who talks behind our back or criticizes us openly are not lesser than the marshy land. The more you stay with them, higher the negativity surrounds you. The more time you spend with them, more unhappiness will start revolving around your soul like satellites orbiting around the planets.

Wherever you go, they and their echoes will follow you.

What to do in these circumstances, when you get caught with these negative people while socializing?

keep calmWill you stop going or visiting these ecstatic places (the way I did)? Will you stop talking to incredible people who can inspire you, inject the positivity inside you and who can share life changing ideas?

No!

Just ignore them, live your life freely. Put the wings on your back and keep visiting numerous people no matter what they talk about you or how they react at your entrances or exits. Don’t waste your energy after them and their idiotic gossips. Entertaining these people are waste of energy, time and most importantly spoiling our mood and soul. If you don’t love talking to someone, just politely ignore them with smile on your face. Trust me, your million dollar smile will kill their egos and confidence.

ignore negative peopleNot going at such thrilled places because of the negative people will isolate you, the way it did me. Yes, I was hundred percent wrong and obviously was immature in my teenage days. But when I got to know my mistake, suddenly I worked on it and changed my attitude and it changed my life.

Now, whenever I go to parties or socialize with others, I just ignore the criticisms with my beautiful smile and never let their negativity enter in my soul. I filter out their negative impacts and receive positive vibrations from the environment, the way modern air conditioners filter out dust particles and provide you chilled air and give you soothing experience.

We go to social gatherings and meet various incredible people and increase our network. Strengthen our relationships with those who love us and care for us. Going there and not talking to beautiful people is like walking in the beautiful garden and avoiding the fragrances of the beautiful flowers.

In garden, you may get few thorns as well but because of these, will you stop visiting the garden?

Life isnt a straight line

Life gives you a lot. It gives you million reasons to smile. It makes you laugh, sigh, angry and sometimes, makes you cry. It teaches you at every bit of minute.

Sometimes it gives you a punch on your face and stupefies you and in next moments it life teachesmedicates you.

Every day we learn something. Life has a meaning, which provides something to us, something relevant which directly affects us and our society.

Here, the main question isn’t what life teaches us, but the main question is what we learn from life. How we make it large and influencing.

life graph

Above figures are life graphs as they reflect the pattern of life.

Graph at your left resembles stock market chart which has lots of ups and downs. As you can see there are 7 days in a week on the X-axis and these days are never same emotionally nor physically.

Monday you may be suffering from “Monday-Phobia” after having an enjoyable and pleasant weekend. Tuesday you may get indulged in the work and then you start flowing with the flow till Friday. The sixth day brings smiles and happiness on your faces. Weekends are always great fun, aren’t they?

Seven days are not same and it should not be same. It indicates there are lots of happenings in our life no matter a positive one or a negative.

Positive one gives confidence, internal satisfaction and happiness. While negative ones give us a learning experience. We must not get demoralized from these negative kicks. I don’t call them failures. Failures are learning lessons of life.

life

When you do not understand what exactly you want to do in your life, when you have no ideas about your goals and you have no sketch plan to achieve them or you simply are confused with your life then you see your life like a straight line graph.

A life without a goal is like a necklace without a diamond. A plain life starts and it injects pain, leave us frustrated. Life becomes lifeless just like stagnant water in a pond.

If your life is moving ahead just like a straight line, then my dear friend you are moving in the wrong direction and will surely land in trouble and cursing your luck.

“Big ships always sail against the wind and tides in the unpredictable oceans while boats floats in the lakes.

I still remember incredible words from Steve Jobs, “Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle.

Yesterday, someone told me, “Aviral why you want to start a business? You are doing well enough and the better part is you are living your life without tensions. Starting a business is full of tensions, headaches and it has many challenges to crack.”

Is life without a challenge a life? I don’t think so, do you?

Don’t get settled. A life without challenges will leave you paralyzed. Keep looking what you love to do and start it once you find it passionate.

Don’t waste time after thinking. Plan it. Jot down the points, take necessary actions and make it happen. We are not here to talk about other’s successes.

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than
by the ones you did do.  So throw off the bowlines.  Sail away from the safe harbor.  Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” 

– Mark Twain
