We all have faced this question at one pint of time or other. we all have tried to find out our purpose of life. but, how many of is do you think really realize? well, I just happened to find out.
Health, wealth and respect might be some of the tangible and intangible assets someone might include in his/ her purpose of life. Someone might even have a purpose of giving out love, helping millions of people, making world a better place in his / her list of purpose of life.
I have lived a better part of my life and as of yet, i have come across this question hundred of times. What is the purpose of my life? I have not found a true answer to this question.
Funny thing is, I don’t know how to find it. And even funnier things is, not even those people know it, who I thought, might know. So, somehow, its completely up to me.
Maybe I need to do some soul searching, maybe meditation and yoga might help, or maybe I should connect with enough people and gather their opinions of me. But I am not sure any of this will help. Why? Because I do not follow any such structure.
Sometimes, we find our answers in most peculiar ways possible. I found my answer couple of days back when I was smoking along with a smoker. He was talking to someone else and I overheard it.
“My purpose of life is to become the best version of myself. I do not care what anyone thinks about me. What’s most important for me is my opinion about myself.” Well, in that very moment I found that it went with my priorities. And so, thus I found my purpose of life. ‘To become the best version of myself.’
Hi, this is the complete biography of fastest man on earth- Usain Bolt. It is based on his official autobiography ‘Faster than lightening
About Usain Bolt :
Usain St Leo Bolt, born 21 August 1986 is a retired Jamaican sprinter and world record holder in the 100 metres , 200 metres and 4 × 100 metres relay. His reign as Olympic Games champion in all of these events spans three Olympics. Due to his achievements and dominance in sprint competition, he is widely considered to be the greatest sprinter of all time.

When Bolt was a kid his father made in compulsory for him to greet hello to everyone he met while walking to school. That made him respectful.

What is life? I tend to think about it over and over. for a long time I thought about it and then found out a simple answer. Life is choices we make.
It has dawned onto me that the beauty of life lies in life itself. Life is what we make it. Let’s take an example to illustrate this point.
Let’s say you decided to have a cat as a pet. You might be, and you should be very well aware that life revolves around choices which we make. Now, in the case of having pet at home you have to make numerous choices. Starting from what you would call it, what you will feed it, where you will keep it, how will you groom it, how you will play etc. All these choices have implications. For example, you have an option of giving your cat the leftover food or the fresh food. A lot depends on what you choose. You might choose giving fresh food and you might make it a habit. Then there will come a day when you have no energy to prepare anything for your cat. But it won’t eat the stale food.
Similarly, life is a result of the numerous choices we make every single day. What do you choose decides what you will receive. Every single sentence you speak shapes your life. Every single moment you spend shapes your life. Every person you interact with shapes your life. Every thought you think of shapes your life.
Now, I do not think that awe can always make right choices. In fact, quite a lot of times we make Wrong choices even if we knew its implications. We decide to smoke, to drink and drive, to pay the unknowns without much worry. We do that primarily because we prefer not worrying about things.

Do you know how to find out your inner calling? what should i do? take a religious route or do a lot of meditation and exercise. what should i do. or for that matter, how do one find out his inner calling?
I am not quite myself these days. I am almost always lost in distant thoughts. The funny thing is, most of the times even I am not sure what I am thinking about. I am just living in a life life trance. I thought that I liked to work in the field of sales and marketing. But nowadays, it has dawned onto me that i was wrong. I do not enjoy my job anymore. I am growing more And more distant from my friends, family and colleagues. I have forgotten why I am living. I am not sure how to enjoy my life. In fact, I have forgotten how to lead a normal life like every other person. To be honest, I think that I am not a normal person. I would like to think of me as a philosopher, a reformer. Much like Paulo Coelho or Mark twain. And there is one question I am asking myself, ‘who I am? What is my identity?’
Now, I am not actually sure if I understand myself so well. However, I seem to enjoy working on literature. I would love to be called as an author. I would like to write new and unique stories. That’s all I would like to do.
But how would I find out whether I am right or wrong? Can you suggest me how should I find out my inner calling.
Meanwhile, you can now join me on my YouTube channel. Here’s the link.
I have been writing diary for the large part of my life. Today I took a look at what I achieved with it just in one aspect.
Last year i did an experiment. I wrote an article on my experiences from morning walks. The blog picked up pace. I got some good comments, it gave me recognition in my place of work, my colleagues now find me talented. What I meant to say is, any habit takes some time before it gives us the fruits. We cannot expect to achieve big success in short time even if we take extreme steps.
Now, I have understood the importance of keeping up the good work. Good work, good content, good underatanding, good health, good clarity of basics and good commitment in life do give you some benefits.
Now I have taken up a project. I wish to make this my master project. Mainly because, this is something i am good at. I am a good writer, good reader and a speaker. Now, with the help of my YouTube channel, my personal web site I am able to put my thoughts into words. I am sure in days to come, I will strike a chord with world. I will be able to carve some place for myself. Hopefully, I will be able to convert it into a full time business.
Keeping good work going is the key to success. May God give me strength to keep moving. I am thankful to God for the beautiful mind he has given me. I will always try to prove to him that he trusted a right person with these abilities. I will be the best version of myself .

Problem solving skills are among the most demanded skills when one appears for interviews for jobs. You certainly understand that if you have these skills, you can beat of a large section of competition.
In our personal life, we come accross a lot of problems on daily basis. Sometimes it feels that the problems aren’t going to end till your last breath. That feels most of us with worry and agony. We spend a large amount of our time and energy in getting our those problems. Gladly, there are methods to solve these petty issues. Lets take a look at 2 step problem solving guide recommend by Dale Carnegie in his book “stop worrying and start living”.
1. Ask yourself- “what are you worried about ?”
You may find this step quite funny. Especially because, you were worried about the problem. However, try to write down this problem in the form of a statement. Try something like this ‘I am worried that I will not be able to create my Android app on time.’
Now, you might have different worries troubling you at the same time. Author suggests, you can write all of them on paper in the form of statements.
When you will be through with this step you will find out that they are not so frenetic now. You will start thinking about the problem as it is.
2. Ask yourself – “What can be done about it?”
Write down all the solutions that come to your mind. For example in my case-
A) I can put extra efforts everyday for one week and that can complete my project on time.
B) I can ask my colleague to collaborate
C) I can take help from online app buildings sites.
D) I can ask for one week extension.
When you make a list, you start finding that you can solve it. Your mindset shifts from thinking about problems to problem solving. Believe me, mindset is the key to problem solving.
Do let me known your thoughts on it.
Life Is very much like a train. As it happens in a train journey, the quality of journey depends on the compartment we travel in. Similarly, the quality of life is determined by which class we choose to live in. I believe, the decision as to which compartment you wish to travel in lies with the traveller. So does the
I have been really lucky to get in touch with a few influential people. What influenced me to the core was their ability to deal with situations; their way of interacting with people and their understanding about life. One thing was very much common among the influential people I got to be with. They were all sure about what they were going to do the next day. They were sure about what they wanted to do, to have and to achieve in long term as well.
In the seminar I attended a couple of days back, I was amazed by the understanding of life by the speaker. He understood one thing for sure, we do not have to understand the life. Because, we can’t. Nobody can’t. But yes, we surely can analyse it.
Let’s hear it in speakers own words. He said, “as I look at it, life is like a Train. I will tell you why I think so. Like a Train, all of us have our journeys fixed. All of us will begin (birth) at the same point and will reach to the same destination (death). Like a moving train, all of us will gradually grow old. There is no way we can reverse it. Like stations that come on the rail journey, all of us will go through different stages of life. And now, here is the thing I would like everyone to focus upon. Because, according to me, this is the most important part of the train journey. It is sure that all of us will reach to the same destination, but the secret is, when we will reach the destination all of us will give different reactions. You know why? Because we will travel in different compartments. Those who travelled in general class, they will complain that they are tired in the journey. They did not get the place to sit. There was no hygiene. And they did not enjoy the beauty of nature from the window. However, those who travelled in first class, they will enjoy the journey. They enjoy the comforts of the air conditioning and privacy. They enjoy the views from the window.”
There is actually no difference in all of us but how we choose to lead our life. Decide in which class you would like to lead your life.
