Have you ever noticed that it is the people we love we most take for granted?It is easy to spend less time with your family because you know they will always be there for you or so you assume. It is easy to put off expressing your love to your loved ones because there seems to be no urgency at play.Its easy to let home relationships slip because you assume there are more pressing things to deal with.
But if you think seriously what could possibly be more important than your family?Is there any wisdom or excitement in being successful, yet alone?
So get out of your casual mode,pick up the phone and tell your parents that you love them. your child too would copy cat this. Before you leave for work,give your spouse a delicate kiss, like you mean it.
And yes,please do hug your kids. Enjoy them while you can-they will be young only once.And once that window of opportunity closes, it will be gone for ever and never return to you.
Every person who has shown up in your life and arrived to help- you become the person you are now. Appreciate and love them.
Three simple test: Short and sweet
1- He/She should be a good human being.
2-He/She should have good upbringing.
3-Meet his/her parents and keep meeting them for atleast one year to know them well, because your prospective life partner is a reflection of his/her parents and will have their a lot of influence.This can seal your decision.
Yes, you have heard me right!
One of the primary traits of world-class performers in business and in life is their ability to ‘detach from the noise’. Each day, ‘noise’ such as little crises,minor interruptions and interesting distractions beg for our attention.To get to your own unique form of personal and professional greatness, it is important-no,essential-to detach from the noise and stay ‘on vision’.
I suggest you a simple daily practice to keep you on course and get to your dreams. you should spent some time each morning in complete silence.
Before your day gets noisy, close your eyes and reflect on your mission. Think about your goals. Reflect on what are your most important To-Dos today.Those things that will get you to your dreams.
We all face ‘the tyranny of the urgent’ during our days.But,trust me, the best of the best stay true to their vision, values and virtues.And they ensure that the things that truly count never get sacrificed for those seemingly pressing but unimportant ones.
They simply refuse to major in the minor.They avoid the noise.
I am a firm believer in Charles Kettering’s proverb-“A problem well stated is a problem half solved.” You feel something special when you take out a piece of paper and list your every single problem and worry.This is like a peaceful feeling you get after telling your best friend about something that has been troubling you for weeks.You feel lighter,calmer and freer.
If you keep thinking about your worries and problems, a time will come when you will think little else.In this situation, it becomes very important that you let go the mental clutter that your problems tend to generate.To get out of this situation, list all your worries on a piece of paper.If you do this, they would no longer be able to control your mind and drain your valuable energy.
This is such a simple exercise that will take your problems into proper prospective and let you tackle them in an orderly fashion and well planned sequence.There are many successful people who have successfully used this technique. Winston Churchill once said-“It helps to write down half a dozen things which are worrying me.Two of them,say disappear; about two nothing can be done, so its no use worrying and LAST TWO PERHAPS CAN BE SETTLED.”
“SIMPLE. SIMPLE. SIMPLE.” FOCUS. FOCUS. FOCUS.
One of the primary reasons that people and organizations fail to achieve greatness is that they try to be too many things to too many people. They tend to forget a very important proverb:
“MAN WHO CHASES TWO RABBITS CATCHES NEITHER.”
The most successful human beings are wildly focussed.They have a very clear picture of what it is they want to create by the time they reach the end of their lives.They also then have the discipline and courage to stick to their mission, saying “no” to everything that is not mission critical.
So my gentle suggestion to you is-simplify your life. Make things simple. Strip away all that is unimportant-these are the things keeping you from getting to your dreams.And then,once you do your clean up-focus,focus,focus.That’s it!! you will be surprised how good you will then get at being great.
Every now and then, life will throw us a curve ball. When we go through hard times, it’s easy to forget that we have the tools within us to make ourselves feel better. When life is good, self-care practises feel easier to follow out of pure enjoyment. However, when we are feeling low we can […]

Gratitude is an amazing thing.It makes the recipient feel better. It makes the sender feel great.It works both ways.
TWO MAGIC WORDS?
” THANK YOU”
They display your gratitude. They reveal your appreciation. They honor the one who has been HELPFUL.As soon as I get up in the morning and before I get out of my bed,I pay my gratitude to HIM for keeping me in good health, for giving me food, clothes,money, for giving me a calm mind and courage, which enables me to face without fear the truth and difficulties in my personal life and in times yet to come. I repeat my same gratitude when I go to bed in the night. Believe me,it make me feel wonderful, calm and patient.
I often express my gratitude to the people who elevate, influence and inspire me. I honor my kids for all the gifts they have brought to my life. I wish I could be half amazing as them.
I thank those who have believed in me and helped me along the way. We all have a lot more blessings in our life than we know. Its human nature to focus on what’s not working rather than to embrace all that is working.
No matter how good or bad, your life looks at this very moment, there really is so much and so many people you can be thankful for. Just do it and see the difference it makes in your life.
Gratitude begets gratitude. The more good things you see, the more good things you see.
