Happy New Year

2013 year has been a splendid year for all of us. If (some of you) are thinking otherwise about 2013 and feel that it was quite a tough year, then think again!

Every year (with time) brings new hope, brings new experiences, brings new confidence, brings new positive expectations, brings new aspirations and all these lead to new learnings, new lessons of life, humanity and happiness.

Tough time, mournful days and soreness are just imaginary words which doesn’t exists. These all are, I believe (I may be wrong) is state of mind. When we face tough times, it actually give us a chance to learn. It gives us chance to sharpen our mental knives. These situations make us tougher and we must learn from these conditions rather than blaming our time, current year or luck.

We all have learned a lot in these earlier flourishing years and will enjoy its returns till our death-bed. Every year teaches us something new and brings new challenges which makes us smarter, wiser and intellectual.

Year 2013 brought smiles on our lips, rejuvenated us, built new as well as strengthen relationships. We met old friends, erased our grudges with those who hurt us in the past, inspired many and got inspired, did mistakes and learned from those mistakes. In the midst of this topsy-turvy ride we never forgot to smile and never lost courage. We bounced back with a bang and achieved acme.

Today on the last day of this incredible 2013, I am personally grateful for all your tremendous support, precious guidance and life changing tips which made my year. We are entering into 2014 with beautiful treasured memories which will water our soul throughout our life.

I wish you a very beautiful, rewarding new year filled with positive thoughts, abundance, joy, and treasured moments.

May 2014 be your best year yet!

Please take care of yourself as you are apple of someone’s eyes.

Keep Smiling… 🙂

Shake dirt and take a step

How do you define ‘Life’?

life-lifes-up-downs

You ask a teenager about life, he or she will define life a hilarious and enjoyable jaunty journey.

If asked to elders, they will share their invaluable experiences about life.

If you ask me, I would say, ‘Life is a learning lesson’.

Life teachLife is full of ups and downs. Even if you are born with a golden spoon, someday life will teach you a lesson. Every day we learn something from it which makes us smarter and wiser. Take lessons as a stepping stones, which support our future just like a spinal cord and make us stronger. It helps us to crack down the complex issues.

It depends on us how we take life, learn from it and how we use these lessons like a key in tough times just like the donkey did in this motivational story, a story of a Donkey and his master.*

Story goes like this.

One fine day, a farmer was going to the market with his old donkey. Donkey did not notice the pit and unfortunately fell down into it.

The animal cried piteously for hours as the farmer tried to figure out what to do.

Finally, he came to conclusion and decided that the animal was old, and the pit needed to be covered up anyway; it just wasn’t worth it to retrieve the donkey.

He called all his friends to come over and help him.

They all grabbed a shovel and began to shovel dirt into the pit.

Initially, stony dirt hit the animal and with each dirt he cried horrendously.

Then, to everyone’s amazement he quieted down.

A few shovel loads later, the farmer finally looked down the pit. He was astonished at what he saw. With each shovel of dirt that hit his back, the donkey was doing something amazing.

He would shake it off and take a step up.

As the farmer’s friends continued to shovel dirt on top of the animal, he would shake it off and take a step up.

Pretty soon, everyone was amazed as the donkey stepped up over the edge of the well and happily trotted off!

Moral of the Story:

Life is going to shovel dirt on you, all kinds of dirt. The trick to getting out of the pit is to shake it off and take a step up. Each of our troubles is a stepping stone. We can get out of the deepest wells just by not stopping, never giving up! Shake it off and take a step up.

Just keep movingKeep Smiling… 🙂

Life is Priceless

Yesterday I went to see a hindi film ‘Jab Tak Hai Jaan’ led by flamboyant superstar Shah Rukh Khan. Its romantic movie directed by evergreen legend late Yash Chopra who gave Indian cinema one of the greatest romantic movies.

The reason of discussing the movie here on this page is, there was a scene in which actor Anushka Sharma, playing a documentary film maker interviews Shah Rukh Khan donning the role of an Indian army officer named Major Samar. Samar was about to diffuse 98th bomb and never wore protection jacket in his entire army career.

She asks, “Why you don’t wear protection jacket before diffusing the bomb. “

He takes a pause and replies,

Life is more dangerous than a Bomb.”

He adds, “Bomb can kill you just once but Life kills you at every moment in your life span. Life is full of Treachery, Rejections, Betrayal and Fake which kills us at every interval. These are no lesser than bombs and if we can handle such situations then why to worry from such bombs.”

This dialog made me think, penetrated into my heart and stamped in my mind. So true, so profound.

Life teaches us. It teaches us at every moment.

“A hot metal takes shape only when it is beaten numerous times.”

Above line goes same with the Life. It’s up to us how we take such hits. I believe two things can take place.

Either we get crumbled and give in or we stand, face it and learn invaluable lessons from it.

It depends on us how we handle such situations, how much we learn and make our lives precious. Makes us mature as we grow.

It makes us stronger and mentally tough. We must learn all the lessons of our lives so that we can minimize the mistakes and make our lives more Inspirational and Beautiful. We must fight and most importantly, have patience.

In addition to this, we should also learn from other’s mistakes as well.

“The person is Smart who learns from his or her own mistake but s/he is Wiser when learns from others mistakes.”

We must always be positive and should never get distracted from obstacles and must not ever get disheartened from redundant criticisms. Filter out all the negative impacts and convert it into positive ones.

Let the positive rays penetrate into your soul, your veins and your mind.

Be positive and keep on rejuvenating yourselves every day. Inject the confidence and stand firm in front of such barriers. Plan and cross them.

Life is not miserable but it is one of the beautiful and priceless gift and we must make it memorable.

Keep Smiling… 🙂
