One fine evening, one of my friends came to my home. He looked stressed and disturbed. He seemed to be in extreme pressure. I asked him the reason of the stress.
I thought for a while.
I went inside the kitchen and brought a glass of water and asked him, “How heavy is this glass of water?”
He replied amazingly, “May be around 300 gm.”
I continued, “What if I ask you to hold it for a while may be for a minute? Then there would not be any problem. If you hold it for an hour, then you will have ache in your right arm. If you hold for a day, then without a doubt I have to hospitalize you. “
I added, “Weight does not matter at all, does it?”
In each case, it’s the same weight, but the longer we hold it, the heavier it seems.
“Now you compare this with stress. If we carry all the burdens on our shoulders and problems in our mind all the time, sooner or later, the burden seems to be a like Mount Everest on our mind and won’t be able to carry it.”
Now, I asked him to hold the glass till he feels pain in his arms. He held it for around five minutes and then put it down.
I said, “As you felt pain, you have to put the glass down and need some rest to hold it back.”
When we are refreshed, we can carry on with the burden and pressure.
Finally I concluded, “Whenever you return home tonight, put the burden of work down and do not carry it home just like you remove dusty shoes before entering the home. Relax and enjoy with your family and just forget the pressure of office or burden of professional life. By not doing this, you are not only injecting more stress and creating a headache but also you may ruin your relationships at home.”
My friend seemed more satisfied and he thanked me for the motivational lesson.
Life is beautiful so never take stress. Stress and mental burdens are just temporary and it has no place in the beautiful mind.

Respect the Time.
This sentence has two most important words, ‘Respect’ and ‘Time’. They are just not important, but they are most powerful words in the world.
“Time has the power to convert black charcoal into glittering diamond. Respect has the power to lift you to the top of your life.”
Manage the Time and Respect others.
If you have these two important qualities, then you have won half of your battle of life and career.
I have always heard from my elders and seniors, ‘life is short and you have no time to hate others.’ Life is short and you have no time to disrespect others.
We have 24 hours day cycle. And we pretend to work for say 18 hours a day. And remaining hours we don’t only sleep but we also get indulged in our daily activities. These activities hardly give value addition to our life.
We are too busy, aren’t we?
We all are really very busy with our day-to-day lives. We have hectic schedules so we don’t have time for our relationships, family, friends, and colleagues.
We don’t have time for Love and Care. We don’t have time for Time. I call it, ‘Busy without Business’.
I have no idea about their busy life. I don’t know whether they pretend to be busy or they actually are busy in some relevant work or they are simply working like dumb which leads to duplication of works.
We are busy in
- Checking emails, those emails which actually can make us upset
- Scrolling our cell phones
- Posting irrelevant posts on the social networking websites
- Messaging or Chatting
- Gossiping and talking on irrelevant topics which has nothing to do with our personal or professional lives
If we receive calls from our family or loved ones, we actually pretend to be busy. Not only pretend, we sometimes speak harshly (may be due to boss’s anger or extreme work pressure) and respond weirdly and that too without thinking.
We are not just wasting our time but we are disrespecting our relationships.
Rather than spending time after cell phones and social websites till late nights, take sufficient sleep for at least 6 hours and spend fragrant mornings after health rather than scrolling emails. It not only makes you physically fit but also makes you mentally strong. It rejuvenate you, energizes you. Do not waste time after emails. I personally check and respond mails only once in a day. I never check in mornings.
We must always respect our peers, elders, loved ones and in addition to this we must not forget to respect strangers.
Listen to our loved ones. They expects from us. Disrespecting not only ruin their expectations but also break their hearts. At the end of the day, we are losers not others.
“Time has the power to make you and if time can make you, it also has power to break you.”
Keep Smiling.. 🙂
