Unintentional Negativity!

Few days back during my evening walk I overheard a man shouting to his wife, while she was trying to cross the road with her daughter,

“Ek din tum dono ko koi gadi wala uda dega” (One day a vehicle will hit you both!!)

The said gentleman had already crossed the road with his son. The wife was visibly humiliated and ashamed, but the husband continued the rambling.

It left me wondering is this Care or Love?

How often we wish for terrible things for our loved ones unintentionally? The sad part is that the universe listens to all our commands and creates such situation in future.
So one day the lady will actually meet with an accident as the husband forewarned but wished for her. The rambling husband would proclaim after the accident “See this is what I have been telling you all along”.
And that’s how we invite terrible things in our lives by unintentionally wishing for it.

So friends be wise and control such negative unintentional comments and wishes. Especially when talking to kids don’t curse them on what they will do or not do in life.

Life is a beautiful gift, Positivity and Gratitude have the power to make it even better!
Wish you a very Positive week!

16 Simple Rules for Living a Successful Life!

Is your day-to-day life full of stress and chaos? Are you scrambling to find a peaceful moment in the day when you can put your feet up and relax? Are you rushed, stressed out and ready to call it quits.
Why is that so? Who is responsible for it? Why have we made it so difficult?
The solution is simple: simplify your life. It’s the implementation part that is hard, but here are my top tips to help with that:
#1 Believe in yourself, but be aware of your limitations
The first step to accomplishing all your goals and making your dreams come true starts with this simple realization that you are human: you are not perfect and you can’t do everything alone.
Always keep things realistic. Don’t put so much pressure on yourself that you find it hard to move; trust yourself to deliver what you need to, but also be prepared to cut yourself some slack.
•        Own up when you make a mistake
•        Set goals, and enjoy the journey
#2 De-clutter & simplify
You have a thousand different things screaming for attention: Deadlines, presentataions, Sales closing, Inventory, and products health. You have to organize your calendar and make room for more appointments; make time to socialize; help the kids with homework.  
Let’s get one thing straight—you cannot accomplish anything unless you get yourself some of the clarity that comes from creating space in your life, in your relationships and your environment. You need to reduce, cut back, simplify—only then will you stop the feeling of being overwhelmed and rushed.
•        Give anything you haven’t used for the past 3 years to charity
•        Get organized
•        Enjoy the concept of enjoying without owing, and appreciating without acquiring
#3 Use everything in moderation
This is something I live by, be it work, socializing, family commitments, overeating, shopping, or watching too much TV—it helps with every single thing. Embrace the philosophy of “having enough”: there’s no need to go to extremes, so exercise common sense and learn to curb any obsessive behavior.
•        Spend less money than you make
•        Watch your diet
•        Watch less TV
#4 Keep things in perspective
I admit there will be times when nothing will go your way, and you will find yourself fighting battles, fixing problems and minimizing damage all day long. We all have those days, and it is too easy to get caught up in the drama. Get a handle on things: this, too, shall pass.
Your child will get better soon, the noisy neighborhood parties will end, business outlook will improve (Achche DIN), and there will be actual days where you tick off all the items on your to-do list.
•        Don’t sweat the small stuff
•        Have an open mind
#5 Treat others how they want to be treated
You might end up getting in trouble if you try treating others how you want to be treated, instead of how they would like you to treat them. For instance, if you are not a phone person, you might not call your friend because you assume that they feel the same way you do, which may not be the case.
Try to be sensitive to the needs of others, and occasionally going out of your way to do something for them.
•        Try not to judge
•        Be generous; try to do something nice for somebody on a regular basis
#6 Family first
As I keep repeating to you all…keep it sorted
1.    Your health
2.    Family
3.    Job
How important is it to you that you spend time with your family? Are you making sure that your work doesn’t prevent you from doing just that? What sort of arrangements have you made to make it happen? You don’t have to stop living your life for your family members, but you’ll feel far less guilt if you priorities and make time for them.
#7 Pay attention to the moment
Stop thinking about what happened in the past, or worry about what might happen in the future. Live in the moment and learn to savour each one.
#8 Have a positive mindset
You are what you think all day long. If you have nothing but negative thoughts racing through your ahead, then that’s what you are going to get, so try shifting to a more positive outlook on life. You will be surprised to see that whatever you wished for will start to manifest itself around you.
“Whether you think you can, or you think you can’t—you’re right.” ― Henry Ford
#9 Educate yourself
The most interesting people are the ones who take an interest in life and never let go of the “beginner’s mind”. They discover learning opportunities and continue to grow, both personally and professionally.
Be a life-long learner. You don’t have to get old to become wise.
•        Read good books
•        Try to learn something new every day
•        Take courses in subjects you enjoy
#10 Be passionate about something
There are some people who are so bursting with energy and vitality that others feel compelled to listen to them, and feel drawn to them. Passionate home cooks, budding interior designers, gourmet chocolate lovers, antique collectors, Fitness freaks —just try asking them a question about their interest and they will talk your ears off.
You want to be that person: someone who’s full of love for something significant. Have one meaningful hobby that encourages you to follow your passion, and you’ll begin each day looking forward to something special.
#11 Always be reflective
Do you ever think about yourself in moments of solitude? What makes you, you? What makes you tick? What bores you to death? What sort of things do you dream of? What can’t you get over? What regrets do you have of your past? Take some time to think about those things and you’ll understand yourself more clearly and deeply. You’d be surprised at the life-changing impact such reflection can bring.
•        Consider doing a Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) or another personality assessment to develop true understanding of your self
#12 Surround yourself with supportive people
3 things can change your life: friends, books & your thoughts. Choose them wisely.
•        Avoid naysayers and party-poopers
#13 Banish the word “perfection
Listen to what you tell your children: always do your best and forget about the rest.
•        You are expert enough
•        Strive for excellence, not for perfection
#14 Fix it, or deal with it, but stop whining about it
Nobody likes a person who complains all the time. If you look around you, you’ll see many people who have been dealt a bad hand, but are making the best of things.
•        Don’t blame others for your problems
•        Don’t make excuses
•        Don’t be overly sensitive
•        Don’t be a drama queen
#15 Remember things that you are grateful for
Try this exercise: whenever you are feeling low, make a list of all the things that make you happy, joyous, and grateful. A beautiful family, adoring kids, kind friends, health, happy home, a job that pays the bills, surprise dinner prepared by a loving spouse, a blog, favourite books and keepsakes, unexpected Rs 100 note in your jeans pocket. Everything counts.
After you’ve done this, consider what has happened to the feelings of doom and gloom: it is impossible not to be cheered up after remembering all the fantastic things you have in your life. Be grateful, and always make room for more happiness.
#16 You can have it all, just not at the same time
There is no greater truth than this: you cannot have everything at the same time. You have only 24 hours in a day and need to take care of your relationships, work and spirit. On any given day, the focus will shift: some days your children have to go to after-school care because you have an important meeting, while other times work has to take a back seat because of a sick child with a high fever. Sometimes you just need to chill with your girlfriend because it has been ages since you last took a break.
You don’t have to do everything all at once, and life doesn’t have to be complicated. Simple living is mindful living.
Happy practicing..

53 Rules for an Awesome 2015!

Dear Champions,
My On-line coach and Guru  “Robin Sharma”, sent this mail at the start of the year,
It’s my pleasure sharing the same with you. Its exhaustive but well worth reading twice. Read it if you want to see a better you in 2015!

  1. Success has less to do with hard work and more to do with massive focus on your few best opportunities.
  2. Why resist change when it’s the main source of your growth?
  3. The more you invest in growing and developing your mindset and way of seeing the world, the more everything you touch transforms in a breathtakingly positive way.
  4. Pursuing perfection really does matter (in a world highly accepting of mediocrity).
  5. Spending full days with zero technology to refuel or do important work is a game-changer.
  6. Doing something super-nice for at least one stranger a day gives them a gift and an even larger one to yourself.
  7. Adore your parents. You’ll miss them when they’re gone.
  8. The smartest thing you can do to grow a great company is to first sweat getting A-players only onto your team and then sweat training and developing them so they play their A-game.
  9. Most TV is toxic.
  10. Have the discipline to clean out all the energy-draining people in your life. You really do rise or fall to the level of your associations.
  11. Doing huge dreams we have never done can be frightening. Yet when we push to the edges of our limits, our limits expand.
  12. If you don’t make the time for yourself to get inspired, no one around you will ever be inspired.
  13. Your diet affects your moods. Eat like a superstar.
  14. Talk less. Do more.
  15. Integrity is more valuable than income.
  16. Model Mandela and you’ll find at the end of your life you lived an awesome one.
  17. Learn to love yourself. It’s the great rule for being loving with other people.
  18. When your dominant business focus is to deliver outrageous amounts of value to your customers every time they do business with you, they become fanatical followers who tell the world about what you do.
  19. Money invested in personal development and professional growth generally has a 30X plus return on investment (I went to more high-level seminars and programs than ever before and the ROI made them all free).
  20. Real leaders have the guts to have the hard conversations.
  21. Your environment (your home, your office, the magazines you read etc.) dramatically affects your levels of achievement.
  22. The quality of your practice affects the calibre of your performance.
  23. Reviewing your Big 5 annual goals every morning and working on your plan every day is an exceptionally powerful way to breed unbeatable focus and drive.
  24. Measure your success via your influence and impact versus only by your income and net worth.
  25. To become successful, first learn how to be happy. Too many think that the route to happiness is to get successful. Untrue.
  26. Getting ultra-fit lifts every other area of your life.
  27. Self-belief is so incredibly important. Because if you don’t believe you can achieve a vision/goal, then you won’t even start to do the work needed to achieve that vision/goal.
  28. Our biggest enemy is our own self-doubt. We really can achieve extraordinary things in our lives. But we sabotage our greatness because of our fear.
  29. Drink more water.
  30. Watch the documentary “Searching for Sugar man”.
  31. Join a mastermind group. It’s just remarkable what being in a room full of people who are smarter than yourself does for your performance.
  32. Related to the above, remember what Dennis Kimbro once said: “If you’re the smartest one of your friends, you need new friends.”
  33. Dopamine is the elite performers best friend. [I really dug deep into the neurobiology of high-achievement in this past year and discovered that this neurotransmitter is the key to motivation...and it is released when we push our envelopes and do things that are difficult].
  34. You rarely go wrong when you trust yourself.
  35. Writing learning down works so much better than typing things down on a computer.
  36. If you try to do it all yourself you get very little done. The most productive people set the dream and then hand it over swiftly to a project manager to execute with precision.
  37. Become one of the rare people who don’t know how to quit (unless it really is time to quit).
  38. Smile. It truly makes a difference to the people around you.
  39. Just because excellent manners are not so common doesn't mean that excellent manners are not incredibly important.
  40. Always remember that there’s food on your table thanks to the customers you are privileged to serve.
  41. It’s so much better to fail trying than to not even get into the game.
  42. Music just makes life a whole lot better.
  43. You can change the world or you can worry about fitting in but you just can’t do both.
  44. Change is hard at first, messy in the middle and beautiful at the end.
  45. The real key to getting great things done is stop doing so many good things.
  46. Small little details done excellently and consistently stack up into something the world sees as Mastery.
  47. Spend time in nature to renew and refuel.
  48. Less entertainment, more education.
  49. Gratitude is the antidote to misery.
  50. We become happier not by accumulating more things but by creating richer experiences.
  51. Your self-identity is what really determines your income, influence, impact and lifestyle. Retrain that and your bigness comes out to play.
  52. The more you serve, the more joyful you’ll become.
  53. Life’s short. Have fun.
Have an Awesome 2015!
