The Seed Of Change Lies in Visualization #DreamIt

Recently I felt some divine powers playing around me. All I wished for was granted. It seemed to me that things were carved to fulfill my wishes. Now, when I have understood the importance of making wishes, I feel it my responsibility to share the #Secret with my fellow readers.

As per the dictionaries, the meaning of ‘#Dream’ is ‘ a series of thoughts, images, and sensations occurring in a person’s mind during sleep.’ I have come to observe that, I forget the dreams as soon as I wake up in the morning. 

Very recently, I have updated the definition of dreams. According to my updated definition dream is ‘ a series of thoughts, images, and sensations occurring continually, visually and affirmatively in a person’s mind in his conscious state.’ The reason lies at the core of what a dream can do for us.

You just need to dream it and you are halfway near to the realization. You just need to have an unwavering belief in your dreams and you reach too close to its realization. You just need to start taking steps towards it and you will have just arrived.

I had been going through a lot of turmoil in my professional life. I had done some irreparable damage to my image and my relationship at the work had almost reached to an end. At some points, I felt that I needed to change my behaviour because the bitterness was ruining my personal life. I was becoming increasingly irritated. I was gradually turning into a short tempered person. One morning I sat down and found that it was the least of what I wanted to become. I wanted to be known as a respectable person, I wanted people to recognize me for my talents, I wanted to have a positive self image.

I remembered what I read in the book titled ‘succeed yourself by Richard Denny’. I trusted that we can get whatever we wish for. 

That day I sat down and closed my eyes. I dreamed that, I wanted to be respected. I dreamed that everyone adored me, behaved with reverence. I also imagined that I will thank people when they will speak respectful and boast me. I decided to take compliments gracefully. I did all this in the conscious dream.

In upcoming days, I woke up each morning and followed the routine of dreaming. I put my faith in what I was doing. I believed and trusted that whatever I will dream, it will come true.

Things started changing gradually at the office. My colleagues started sitting in front of me to seek professional advice. It was like, they had newly discovered my presence. Suddenly everyone at the office needed something from me and I gracefully helped them. And when they complimented me, I happily took the compliments.

Now my faith in #TheSecret has risen to the next level. My faith in myself has increased manifolds. I have come to know the spectacular power of dreaming. And so I have made it a habit to dream in the morning. Everyday. 

How to Love Someone? #WithFullHeart

My wife has joined a new job from yesterday. Now she needs to leave for work at 7 AM sharp. The funny thing about her is she is never on time. Sometimes I feel that there might be something utterly wrong with her sense of timing.

I am a very serious person. When it comes to reaching somewhere on time, I can’t help but reach on time. Every time. That’s actually a good trait in me, but nevertheless it hurts my relationships sometimes. Especially when I am married to a girl who is never on time.

The bad thing is, We all have some or other deficiencies in us. The good thing is, We all have some specialities too. Human mind is a one complex place. It takes bad things rather seriously. The same used to be pricking thorn in my relationship. I used to get utterly upset over my wife when she made me late.

It had been around two months and I was growing irritated with her over timing issues. Fortunately enough, I started noticing that I hated to get upset. Now I have reached to the solution of the problem. It’s Love.

When I married her, I married her with her good and bad qualities. Like all of us, she has got some deficiencies, but that doesn’t make her bad person. Neither me having some good qualities make me a superior person to her. That just left me with one option- to love her for who she is and not for what I want her to be. 

So, today morning, I woke up earlier than her and helped her be ready on time. That way I found the joy of showing my love for her. It was just a small work of 20 minutes, each minute I felt love overflowing in me. That’s certainly a treat for my soul.

I hope you liked my experience. Do share your views on the same.

Letter to Newspaper Editors #GoForDreams

​I have been planning to reach out to different newspapers to publish my articles. I very much wished to see my articles being published in the national papers. It seemed too ambitious to me. For quite some time, I kind of pushed myself back. I told myself that its too tough; it requires a great quality maybe I won’t be able to provide that; I feared that nobody will reply and my efforts will be wasted. 

But today, I decided to do it. I told myself that the worst that can happen is they will reject my request or won’t take efforts to write back. But, it might be a temporary ‘no’. They might reach out to me in future. Or, they might ask me to be a ghost writer. So I #TookAStep and began writing the letter. Am sharing the same with you. I am doing this because I feel firm on my feet when I share with my fellow readers.

I Wrote a Letter to My Boss #ExpressYourself

Sometimes, I find it difficult to express myself in a conversation. My strength had always been written stuff. That’s the reason, today I wrote a letter to my boss to #Express my dissatisfaction to her. I am sharing the copy of the same.

Hi mam, I would like to Let you know something. In past couple of days, I have felt humiliated. It was a result of how you spoke with me. 

1- when the Nagraj and his friend came with the printed fliers, I had come to your cabin out of curiosity. You shouted at me with lot of indignation. I was hurt but did not let you know.

2- today morning, I had come to your cabin to enquire if we have something to do at Airtel office. This was because I needed a reason to visit the Airtel office. Last time I had discussed with the employee at that office about MBA admission. Now, I planned to go there and take feedback or take discussion to next level. But you shouted at me infornt of Purushotam sir. I don’t know whether you noticed it or not, it was a humiliating response. But I smiled and left. I noticed that such incidents are happening on day to day basis now.
I am pretty certain, that in all the cases I behaved immaturely. I will surely take steps to change myself now.
mam, I respect you a lot. Had you not been there i would have long gone from ICFAI. You have done a lot for me without asking. You certainly have a golden heart. Thats the reason, i am expressing my thoughts. Otherwise, I never take this much trouble. 
I observed that this is not your fault. I have shown some wickness  of character in recent times. I don’t know how to play ‘tit for tat’ game. In some cases, I have displayed that I am not capable of violence. Which is quite a fashion in demand. 
If such things keep on happening, I would not be able to focus on work. I will inadvertently leave the organization. 
My expectation from you is of gentle behaviour. Which you are certainly capable of. I have seen enough voilence in my small life. Now I would like to be treated with gentleness.
If you have reached till the end of this small letter, I would like to Let you know that this is not a complaint. I am just expressing my thoughts to you. 
Good Night.😊

Remember To Smile #DoItNow

I read an article today. The article was written to the point and made me think about my smiling habits. The analysis gave me some necessary outputs. Read on to find out how it can be important for you as well.

In my opinion and experiences, nothing is more contagious than smile of the person you love, your friends and acquaintances, people you deal with on daily basis, people you work with and even the novices you see on the streets. That’s the #BeautyOfSmiles.


I came upon this thought today when I read the chapter from book titled Succeed Yourself by Richard Denny. In the chapter, author has emphasized on importance of smiling in all new perspectives. Here are some of the perspectives I liked :

1) Smiling takes lesser muscles than frowning. That simply meant our faces won’t be wrinkled soon if we smile more often. That also meant we will look more beautiful. 

2) The author has pointed out on smiling without any reasons. Yes, there is a difference between smiling and laughter. 

3) How about starting your day with a #Smile?

4) smiling person is automatically perceived as confident, passionate and friendly. 

5) Smile and negative thoughts will be at arms distance from you.

6) Everyone loves to speak with smiling person. Do you like to speak with a jolly person or serious one?

After reading the articles, I went on to do the analysis of my smiling habits? How often I smiled? With whom I smiled? And I was not so happy with what I found.

The first thing is these days I don’t smile much. I wear kind of a grave look on my face these days. The reason behind this is my distorted relationships with my colleagues. I have decided to improve the relationships now. I realky like my smiling face.

I have become too serious in my personal life as well. I love my wife a lot. But when am sharing time with her, my mind is almost always occupied with something or other. I don’t smile so much with her as well. This is a grave serious observation. I will make it a point to handle things with smiling face. Starting this moment itself.

I think a small change in ourselves on daily basis can make us better, happier and more importantly, stronger. What are your views about it?

How To Achieve Anything with Power of Visualization #SucceedYourself

EIarly morning today, read a chapter from a book. It’s marvellous content got me hooked. It gave me confidence that I can achieve anything.

It was raining when I woke up early at 5 AM. It was neither possible nor advisable to go for a #MorningWalk in such a weather. The first thought that came to my mind was to go back to sleep. Because it was cold. However, I was doing just the same every other day. So I got myself up and running. Since there wasn’t much to do, I took up a self help book I had bought a month back. The book was ‘Succeed Yourself by Richard Denny’ I opened a random chapter and got hooked up on it.

The chapter was about the #PowerOfVisualization. I liked the way author had put his thoughts on the subject. More than anything the author had focused on #Affirmations and detailed visualization. I also got to believe that if we believe in an idea and there’s not an ounce of doubt in our belief, we can achieve anything. The author had given examples of how different athletes had put the concept of visualization and affirmation to there belief. Find some of those examples here:

 

Now the question was, how do I visualize and use affirmations. So, I am sharing my affirmations and visualizations here. Because if I dare to speak out my affirmations and visualizations I tend to believe it. It will lead me towards its fulfilment.

Affirmations:

1) I am a good man. I believe in equality. I believe that God lies in each one of us. Thus I love and respect everyone equally. 

2) I am a family loving person. I love, care and respect for my family members. 

3) I believe in my potential. I have a capability to achieve anything.

4) I am a strong person. I do only those things in which I believe.

5) I strive to help everyone. Regardless of who the person is, if he asks for my help, I provide help.

6) I respect everyone’s individuality. 

Visualizations :

1) I want buy a 2BHK home in Pune. I have also decided as to how I wish to paint it. I have also visualized which furniture and lights I want in there. I have decided to buy the house in the time frame of 10 months. I want to have the new house as a birthday gift. My birthday falls on 5th June.

2) I want to write a novel. I visualized how I want its cover design to be. I am currently working on it and plan to publish it in June 2019.

Dear reader, I strongly believe that the power of visualization works. I urge you to use it to your belief. 

Why Do I Prefer To Wake Up at 5 #LiveMore

Everyone wants to make his life more and more beautiful. It’s very easy to do so. The secret to the improved and satisfactory life is living more, doing more and more activities and ultimately staying at top of everything.

A few years back, one of the beverages company started a campaign titled “It’s your life- #MakeItLarge” The campaign concentrated on how you enhance your life by drinking those beverages. However, it gave me a good concept to think about. How to make our life more beautiful? How do I enhance my life? How do I #Enjoy its every moment?

Later I began writing on the same concept. I explored the concept in terms of experimenting with different things ranging from sports, spirituality, music, knowledge and much more. The subject, however, was so extensive that I wasn’t really satisfied with what I explored. The question wasn’t really resolved. I guess, I have reached to the core of the solution now.

For last few days I was not able to go out for #MorningWalk. As happens with all the lazy people, I started waking up late. And for last 10 days, I started waking up at 8 AM. There was a marginal difference between waking up at 5 AM and 8 AM. My routine was completely devastated with this change. The good thing, however, was I felt better to have some lazy time.

Now the grand question has struck me like lightening. I sleep between 11 PM to 8 AM. That means I sleep for 9 hours out of 24 hrs of day. I go to office and work between 9.30 to 7 PM. That leaves me with meagre 4 to 5 hours to live my life. If I live only this much, how do I make it Large?

Now, I have understood this concept of making our life large. It’s essence lies in living more. Here are the takeaways,

1) Wake up early and do as much activities as possible 

2) Do exercises, Yoga, Pranayam, read books, listen music, write the day journal, have a good hefty breakfast and then start for office.

3) I calculated the time and found that I needed atleast 4 hours of morning life.

4) The life seems more beautiful when you are occupied and involved in different activities. 

5) If we are doing single activity in 4 hours we feel day is very short. However, if we did lots of activities in couple of activities,  we feel the largeness  of the day.

6) Feeling healthy is a key to positive thoughts. So if you want to stay happy, keep yourself strong and strive to be stronger.

Now I have decided to start waking up at 5 every morning. That’s how I plan to make my life large. What are your thoughts about it? Kindly add your views too.
