Why wait for difficulties to confront you before you pull back from the noise and rethink. Think again - who you are, what your priorities are, where you are going, why you are going there, how you want to shape your life and what values you stand for. Please remember - to succeed you will have to do things others don’t like to do, even if you don’t like to do them either – Have guts to rise above your feelings of the moment - and do what's correct versus what's trouble-free. And that's how you emerge as a winner of every moment.

"Amidst great difficulty lies big opportunity”
Albert Einstein once said.
In this time of sluggish economy and low morals, we need to have a vision for tomorrow. There was a time, not so long ago when big corporations failed and people were stunned. No one had ever imagined that giants will fall down like this. However, this is an opportunity for us to show our braveness, boldness and use our decision making power in the right direction.
To have a vision for tomorrow, we will have to make our ‘today’ productive. It takes guts to oppose the tide of pessimism and stand tall to show ‘the right way’ to others. To be daring, you don’t have to be famous. To make humanity better, men and women will have to take steps and lead. We are the generation of leaders and visionaries, and we will make our world better. So, go out today and shine with all your might. Never forget for a moment that hard times are rich with gigantic opportunities. Be passionate and believe in your vision and success will follow, IT HAS TO FOLLOW.

This line sends shivers down my spine. Whosoever wrote this statement made the most valuable point in the Philosophy of Life. It’s a natural trap for every human being to look at the things they don’t have and feel sad about it rather than being grateful for what they have. I meet many people who say that they are thankful to God for giving them what they have, but do they really realise it from inside?
The moment a person become conscious of good things around, complaints of life vanish immediately. The fear of ‘what’, ‘if’, ‘why’, ‘when’ and ‘who’ immediately fades away.
More than billion of people go to bed hungry and we feel gloomy if we don’t have money right now to buy some branded clothes......Children, with no fault of theirs, are born with AIDS every day and we get irritated if we have to spend some time in a traffic jam? Many died last week war due to tensions between Israel & Hamas, and we worry about losing extra pounds?
The only word to think about here is ‘Perspective'. See world through the eyes of traveller and you will have a Perspective, speak to people and you will know their Perspective, respect others and you will have a Perspective and listen to your parents and your life will have a Perspective.

1. Dialogue with myself:
In today’s world, we all have busy lives and busier schedules. We have time to talk to everyone, responsibilities towards everybody but how much time do we spend with ourselves? Have you ever wondered where do all the negative feelings originate from? Why do you sometimes get a feeling that “something wrong is going to happen” or “I will not be able to complete this task”? If someone speaks to you bluntly, how long do you keep on thinking about the incident in your mind? Are you able to forget the wrongs done to you and forgive those who hurt you in past? Do you get jealous of other’s prosperity? Have you ever thought how much of your time is wasted in these wasteful thoughts?
What is missing from our lives is introspection. It is easy to point mistakes in others but equally tough to accept your mistake and ask for forgiveness. Why don’t you sit with yourself for 10 minutes, without any interruption and ask – “What am I doing?” This question initiates the most powerful relationship that is with yourself and you learn to respect yourself.
2. Starting with what is right:
Most people do not give due credit to their efforts and always see themselves as underachiever and on the other hand there are those who see themselves as superior to others and are usually overconfident. Meditation helps you to bring your feelings to a balance and stay in a positive frame of mind throughout the day.
