How Difficult It Is To Change Ourselves? #ForLove

For past 6 years, I was building an invisible wall around me. Unknowingly, I trapped myself in those walls. As it happens, I struggled to break away from those walls. Because over the years, I started feeling that the life behind those walls was normal one. But, it wasn’t. I was just convincing myself all those days. I did that to safeguard my beliefs. Today, I broke free from one of my beliefs.

Today I have done something which I never thought I will ever do. Even i have surprised myself with this actions. For years, I have been advocating myself for being a rational person- an atheist. However, today, I have broken my own image. I have installed the Ganesha idol in my home as the celebration of Ganesh chaturthi.

What can be a more funny thing in this unprecedented act than my acceptance. When Bhagyashri called me to ask whether we should celebrate the Ganesh Chaturthi, I happily agreed. I agreed as if I was waiting for her to raise the topic.

I find the roots of this sudden unprecedented action in my childhood. As I child, I enjoyed the festival of Ganesh Chaturthi. I enjoyed the dancing, music and the aura of celebration. When I was in 4th or 5th std, I had asked my father whether we could install the Ganesha idol in our home. He had denied. The reasons were obvious, it was a waste of resources. However, that wish lingered in my mind for years. And today, when Bhagyashri asked me I happily consented and celebrated with her.

As another form of explanation, I can say that I did what I did today out of sheer love. I love her, and I am ready to do whatever makes and keeps her happy. Thus, I believe, I am serving love. I want to say myself and I want to believe that i am an atheist. I wish to stay atheist. But if that comes in the way of my love, I will not keep it as a barrier.

Now coming to what my mind is thinking now, I am feeling completely normal. For past half a dozen years, I had grown distant. I had come to despice loud music, loud celebrations and ultimately religious activities. However, a man with hate in his heart is less a man. Hate for anything creates a hollow vacuum in our heart. We start to become weaker and distant from ourselves. And honestly, when we realise that we need to change, we can’t. Because by that time we become a slave to our older ways of thinking. We imprison ourselves in the self created world of dillusion and sadness.

Today, I have learnt one thing for sure, atheist or no atheist. I want to stay happy. That’s all. I do not wish to stop myself from enjoying diffrent parts of my life Only because they are behind the barrier of my beliefs. 

I am fighting with myself to find a perfect balance. It’s the conflict of mind. The more time you take to take your side, the more trapped you feel. I need to make my choice and make it faster.

Having The Goalbook #TowardsSuccess

I am going to explain you the science of goals today. This is the science used by many great leaders, philanthropists, philosophers and scientists of modern times. Read till the end to uncover the secret of success you can use in your daily life.

For past 8 to 9 years I have maintained the daily journals. It has been a secret potion driving my life till now. 

A few years ago, one of my mutual friends called me with her problems. The biggest problem she was facing in those days was that of mental depression. Her engagement was broken twice. She was ditched by her boyfriend and had married other girl. Each time she was a victim of the situations. And now, she had reached a stage where she had turned suicidal. She had called me for counsel.

In that period of time I was not so aware about helping someone mentally. However, I had had great experience in dealing with crisis. In every crisis I had ever faced, I wrote a journal note about it. Writing down my problems always lead me to the answers. It was like my journal was a wisest person on earth. 

I told her to write down her worries and thoughts. Even now I do not know why she trusted my counsel. She started writing about her worries. When she wrote her journal she also wrote what she wanted rather than what had happened. And magically, her state of happiness improved. When she called me after a week I could see the magic caused.

Two important things happened after this incident. One, my mutual friend got married to a really nice guy after 3 months. Two, I became a staunch follower of the practice of diary writing. 

I have named my previous journals as ‘The Learning’  and ‘The Journey’. In accordance with the names, I have witnessed the results. I learnt a lot when I wrote ‘the learning’. I had been through a lot of situations while i wrote The Journey. 

Today, my The Journey was completed. I sat down and thought about what my next journal should be about. And I have reached to the decision that It will be titled, ‘The Goalbook’. I am pretty sure that the journal is going to lead me towards my goals. Because that’s the logical state.

I strongly believe that whatever I write about in my journal I tend to believe and achieve it. It’s time for me to upgrade myself to the next level where I lead a life towards good health, good wealth, good success and lots of love. My goals are going to be in the same direction, and I am going to achieve them through the science of journal writing.

In case you happen to have any doubts let me explain the science of journal writing. Journal writing is a secret science used by many a great men to achieve success. Abraham Lincoln wrote a journal; Mahatma Gandhi wrote a journal and so did many great leaders of modern times. Martin Luther king, Anne Frank, Hitler are some of the examples. These people used to write What they believe in. They used positive affirmations while writing about their beliefs. They wrote about what they wanted. They used the art of visualization to their benefit. 

When we write something the thing becomes pretty clear to our mind and is easy to understand. Ones something is easy to understand it becomes easy to believe. Ones we believe something with full heart, we are sure to achieve it.

Let’s Start using this secret science many great people used for their success. Do let me know your views on the same.

The Royal Road to Riches #HowToAttractMoney

Everyone wants to be rich. In fact, if I wrote down the names of people who want to be rich I would be on top of the list. However, not everyone of us is aware of how to attract money.

Yesterday I bought a book titled ‘How To Attract Money by Joseph Murphy’. I found the book positively motivating. The author has given all new angle to the concept of amassing wealth. The angle I am referring starts from thoughts. The thoughts thus changed are transformed into actions leading to wealth creation.

The good thing was, I have already been practicing some parts of the book in my daily life. And I have ripped excellent fruits. Let me share the brief overview of the learning with you. I believe the learning will be helpful to you in long term.

Author stresses on the mentality of being rich. Some people are groomed in such ways that they have come to hate wealth. Some people have been through the situations in which they have found money to be the root of all evils. These people walk around hating money. This keeps them poorer.

There is no virtue in being or staying poor. In fact one finds it difficult to attain peace, enjoy life through its instruments when he doesn’t have money. Thus, in many ways wealth makes our life easier. 

The law of Attraction works equally for Everyone of us. We are all bound by it. As it applies on living and non living things, so does it apply on the thoughts. The thoughts are made of energy. And could be considered and interpreted like physical things. Every thing in the world attracts everything else. So do thoughts.

The author stresses that the concept of law of Attraction is applicable on everything in the world. One can attract health, wealth, success, relationships, emotions and virtually anything that he craves for. It solely depends on how one attracts them.

One needs to think positively. Here let me clear the meaning of positive. 

Today morning, My wife informed my that there was some moisture on the kitchen floor. She said ,”take care. Don’t slip on the floor.” To her the sentence was positive. However, inadvertently she had spoken a negative sentence. When I bought the thing to her attention she said, “take care. Walk safely on the kitchen floor.” That’s a positive sentence.

We humans tend to think in terms of images. Thus when we are told that we should not slip on floor, we actually think of the images of slipping on the floor. And the same is transformed into actions. However,  we should think about what we want. If we want to be safe we should think about being safe. If we want wealth we should think about being wealthy. And when we think about having money we should think “I have a lot of flow of surplus money.” And should feel like that.

I believe, you have studied similar books before. However, I shared my thoughts one more time. We tend to forget about things. I want you to remember the concept of law of Attraction.

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. 

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.😊

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. 

After Near Death Experience #BeThankful

Life is a series of miracles. Usually we do not recognize these miracles because they are wrapped in the form of regular life. But when we meet with near death experiences, we tend to see how beautiful life is.

From what I have observed in my life, I have come to believe that we humans are very ignorant about the value of life. I got fortunate to have interacted with many of my colleagues on this isaue. Almost everyone of them had a thrilling story to share about their near death experiences. Some of them had survived the accidents, some of them had survived the illnesses and some of them were saved from possible deathly situation in miraculous ways. When they told their stories they often ended by saying, “That day I got a new life with God’s grace. Had their been a small mistake I would not exist today. That day I learnt the #ValueOfLife.” Sadly enough even after having gone through these situations, those people seemed to have forgotten the important #LifeLesson. 


We humans are very forgetful. Forgetting is a bliss in many cases. However, eventually we tend to forget everything. 

Yesterday my boss at the office survived from a near death experience. From what she told, the car in which she was traveling was completely damaged in the mishap. She had survived from the accident at one of the most deadly roads in entire country. When she came back to office, she was more thankful to God than ever. The shadow of death had touched her mind but couldn’t engulf her soul.

I have survived from many such accidents. Sometimes I feel that if life were a game, I have used all my lifelines. I care a lot about avoiding accidents these days. After surviving one of the accidents, I decided to celebrate the fact. I called my girlfriend and invited her for the small party. What she told me while we were having dinner gave me a new perspective on life.

“Congratulations on surviving yet another deathly accidents” she told. “Am very thankful to God for saving the love of my life. When something like this happens, I tend to love the fact that am living. Otherwise, on most days, I compare my life with others and feel sad that I have not succeeded yet. But when I hear about near death experiences, just the fact that am living is enough for me to cheer me up.”

Later on she said, “it’s good that we are celebrating today’s occasion. You have returned safely from the mouth of death. But do we need a reminder like these to make us #CelebrateLife ? Why can’t we celebrate very often?”

In my humble opinion, life is a miraculous sequence of events. It’s futile to try and understand how life works. The simple fact that we are alive is not simple at all. Talking scientifically, living every another second is a big struggle. Every second our body undergoes lots of changes; fights millions of bacteria and viruses. Life is a struggle at every moment. Thus, when we wake up every morning, we wake up after winning a battle. 

What do you think about it?
