Learning from Friends

Today,  I was feeling very alone in my room . It has been many months of months that I spend some good  time or hang around with my friends or family. Many of them are different parts of the world and  I am happy when I see them living their life fully. Then I realize what I can learn from them . Then one after another , one specific quality I figure it out from my friends whom I met in different times of my life and I realize I need to abide by those quality that my friend has . One of the other has different, unique and very good qualities . And if you have any of those qualities ; you really have a good things with you.  Here it goes


Prince Agarwal: My elder brother and my first friend.  Each time I spoke with him, I feel the tremendous support I have. I remember a few months back I was depressed regarding certain things and the very next morning I got a surprised call from him .  He usually doesn’t call me in the early morning and he was even not knowing  that I was a little depressed and we just had a normal talk. But that talk removes all my worries . It was the call from heart to heart . Thank you brother for all the love and care.


Rajat Aggarwal: I met him first time during my 2nd year of Engineering. Till then we have been very good friends . I never ever heard any negative word from him neither for anything nor for any person. That superb quality he possess. Always find the good things of anything and tremendous confidence.  He carries the  positive vibrations all around wherever he goes and that is really unbelievable. Thank You Rajat for being a part of my life and of great help .


Ashutosh Nayak: What I can tell him of him? When no one is there, he will be there.  We first met during our Wipro Training Camp in Pune . One quality that I take from him is “PATIENCE”.  No matter how difficult the situation , “STAY CALM”  his mantra.  Thank You for being with me in all the difficult period of my life and offering your helping hand. 


Ankush Rajpoot:  Even in the worst of worst situation, how to smile and stay happy , learn from this person. For him Life is colorful yesterday, today and tomorrow. Thank You Ankush for realizing me this fact. 


Bhushan Bhoyare: One of my very good college friend. One thing I learn from him is focus on one thing at a time . He has tremendous  love and care for his loved ones. We often used to talk each other and I figure it out is complete one task then move to another. Thank You Bhushan for giving me this great life lessons.


Mohit Sharma and Manish Ramavat and Chetan Agarwal : This post would not be completed if I don’t mention these names.  If I got stuck with anything or want to solve anything ; they are  just a call away .Thank you for being in my life.


There are many other friends from whom I learnt many things and thank you for making my life colorful. Life is full of blessings and beautiful when someone has friend like you all . When I say this, I really mean it. :)

Have you learnt anything from your friends? List it out and see the good changes.

I believe…

Dear Readers,

Before I begin, let me  take this opportunity to wish you all a very “Happy New Year”, though it is already a first few days of the year, nevertheless.

Hope this New Year you will bring your best.
Hope this New Year you will do the things that you were resisting for long.
Hope this New Year you will write new memorable chapters in your diary.
Hope this New Year you will be so good that it helps to make this world a better place to live.

Here I list out some key points that I believe and just want to share with you.

  1. I believe “Service to humankind is service to GOD”.
  2. I believe “One needs to keep working hard to improve himself”.
  3. I believe “There is no tomorrow; you never know what will happen the next day, better act today”.
  4. I believe “Life is too short to be hatred, so forgive others and move forward”.
  5. I believe “Life without purpose is no life at all”.
  6. I believe “Luck favors the brave, who actually deserve it”.
  7. I believe “Emotion is energy in motion and can keep you in momentum to achieve your goals; so find some emotion why you are doing for what you are doing but it should come from your heart and not attract from outside world”.
  8. I believe “Yes, as human we are bound to make mistakes, but it is said experience comes from bad experience and bad experience comes from mistakes”. So it’s good but tries not to repeat the same and also learn from other mistakes.
  9. I believe “We are here on this earth to bring some good changes, but it starts from you first. So change yourself what changes you see in the outer world. As Mother Teresa said “If each of us would only sweep our own doorstep, the whole world would be clean.”

  14. I believe “If everyone starts sharing their knowledge to at least 6 new people, then 6 people to next 6, then this world will be even better, power of networking”.
  15. I believe “Most of us are lived societies life, compromising our own life, why it is so difficult to follow the passion??’ Time to rethink over it and live with your values”.
  16. I believe “Happiness lies on the road we travel enjoy in smaller things while chasing bigger dreams”.
  17. I believe “What count most in life is what we do for others, period”.
  18. I believe “Environment matters a lot where we live, so chose to be in a good environment, the life you want to live”.
  19. I believe “Reading books help to accumulate lots of knowledge, but it’s useless if we only keep it to ourselves, apply the same and share with others”.
  20. I believe “Hard work is not what you do in office for 8-10 hours that is your duty, hard work is what you do after that”
  21. I believe “This article may help someone in some or the other way”.

Hopefully, you will start this year with the believe you have and make it stronger as the year passes by. Have one of the best year ahead :)

Happiness is a journey not a destination!!

“Happiness is not something ready-made. It comes from your own actions.” 
― Dalai Lama XIV

We entered the world with nothing in hand and we are destined to leave with nothing.But what we do in between these, matters a lot.

So if I ask a question, what do you want in your life?? Most of the time, I got the answer is ,” I want to be happy or I want to be successful”

So taking some pause and think for your answer “What makes you happy?”.

In this post, I am going to highlight a few key points that we miss out in our busy schedule or in fair way actually we are busy being busy.

Everyone wants to be happy, but the question is when?? When they achieve the certain things that there are looking for the long time.Sure enough, it will give them immense joy.But it doesn’t end here.The very next moment the definition of happiness changes and people looking for much better things. No wrong in it but while keep chasing things we should not ignore what we have in our hand.

However I learnt is Happiness is a journey not a destination. Means your journey to achieve your goals should be fun and enjoyable.. so that each day of your life is worthful living and when the last moment of your life comes,yes you can proudly said,” what a life I have lived”, thankful to GOD.

There are different parameters in life that we need to keep balance for a happy life and are equally important. (These are my thoughts, you may have different)

  • TIME
  • MONEY
  • HEALTH

Time:  Time slips through our hands like grains of sand, never to return again.A person is working very hard for 10-12 hours in a job and earning a good amount of money. In the same time , if his family needs him lets say they are staying in other cities, he should be there.What is the use of earning; if he can’t enjoy or give  time to his family when they needed it most. Just remember, at the time of your last hours, no one will remember your office presentation, family will.Give some time for them. Give them a call ; for a few minutes, that is good enough or sit together for a dinner or hang out somewhere in a week.

Money: A person has lots of money in his bank balance, but what is the use of it; if he doesn’t have a good health or have anytime to call up their loved ones.Someone rightly said, people work hard for 30+ years to earn money by deteriorate their health and then they spend money to gain their health. Here I want to say, take good care of health, a 15-20 minutes of morning walk or meditation or yoga will surely help or you can find other many ways.You will have a better and enjoyable life in all respect.

Health: “ Health is wealth”.You must have heard the phrase lots of time. Next time when you come across any hospital; just take some time to meet any patient on his death-bed; and asked him what the most important thing he wants. Probably, the answer you will listen ; just a few days of fit life. If one doesn’t have any good health ; the saddest part will be; though they want to go out and enjoy their life; still they can’t . I think you get my point.

Definition of happiness will differ for different people, I agree. However, there are certain things we should know why we are here and what difference we can make by being here. As  “Life of purpose is purpose of life itself”.

So all I mean is TIME,MONEY,HEALTH are like the 3 wheels of life ; in the absence of one; it’s quite difficult to maintain the balance.

“By the time most people figure out what they really want , and how to go about attaining it, it’s usually too late”.The monk who sold his Ferrari

Hopefully, the article will flash back to think you for sometime.

Thanks for reading :) Have a balanced life!!

Please share your thoughts!!

Books.. best friend of my life!

Today I am writing down my personal experience why I feel, everyone should read books in their life.

As Mark Twain said “The man who doesn’t read good books has no advantage over the man who can’t read them”.

books

Initially I hated reading books, I wonder how  one can read books of so many pages ,even 200 pages to read seems to climb Mount Everest for me. However, I want to thankful to a few of my friends who consistently told me to read books, at least if not but  for pleasure. Then slowly , I started reading books and today I really understand the potential of it.We have only life to live,  but believe me reading books will have to live many lives.

I  read books to

  • Grow.
  • Understand my strength and weakness.
  • Get close to GOD and Nature.
  • Acquire experience from successful people 
  • Love , understand others and so on

Recently I have read a book “The Magic” – Rhonda Byrne,  that I want to share with you why I do like it most.

This book will take you 28 days of magical journey. In fact for me it’s the rest of my life. This book says.. one word can change your life and that word is “GRATITUDE”. How grateful you are for your current life? If you go through other religious book like Koran , Bhagavad Gita or Bible, the law is same and that law of nature is To increase anything in your life you should be grateful for what you currently have”. i.e. Whoever has gratitude will be given more and he or she will have an abundance.Whoever doesn’t  have gratitude, even what or she has will be taken from him or her”.

A few lines from the “The Magic” itself:

When you arise in the morning think of what a privilege it is to be alive, to think, to enjoy , to liveMarcus Aurelius.

Are you fortunate enough to have slept in a bed,with sheets and a pillow? When you go to washroom, are you able to turn the taps and immediately receive fresh, clean water every morning?Imagine all the people who dug the trenches and laid the pipes across your country, throughout your city, and along all the streets to your home so you can turn a tap and receive beautiful, clean, hot water.Should not you be thankful for all this. Imagine a single morning of your life without water.

This book teaches you to look for the goodness to be grateful for in every circumstances.

I want to share something with you – heard in one seminar..

There were two persons in a village. After they died , they appeared before GOD. GOD asked both of them how was their life and what they want to be in  their next life. The first person said,”God, You have given me  miserable life.In my next life, create such a situation that I will receive things only. I don’t have to give things to anyone. God said , “Your wish, my command, granted”.

The second person said,”God, You have given me everything in this life , what I shall want more.In my next life, create such a situation that I can able to give things to the needy person.God said , “Your wish, my command, granted”.

Both the person rebirth in the same village. The first person becomes the great beggar of that village. What does beggar do ? He receives things only,doesn’t he?

The second person becomes the king of the village.

Moral-   ” To increase anything in your life , you should be grateful for what you already have“.

If you think that your life is not blessed, then I recommend you to go through this book. Since you are able to read this line . that means you are accessing to internet, you are using the most powerful way of communication ;  your life is itself blessed.Give a thought!

Thanks for reading.

Living for the day!

Hi Friends, Just another poem. Hope you enjoy reading it.

Living for the day!
Will keep thee vigorous for the time.
It’s not phony as it can be said
Only thee have to fight.

You never know what tomorrow will contribute
The matters you should be caring
Forgot the yesterday as it had already distributed
Concentrate on now, as it is where you are living.

Life is too short to be hatred
So live with full joy and make the most
Regrets are there and will always be
So do the things that you feel and will make it cost.

Better to express your feelings to your loved ones
Before it is too late and you fail
So don’t you have to regret later
That you haven’t let them smell.

Though sometimes things are visibly open
But the universe wants from your inner cart
That your action should not contradict with you desire
So bring all those things out from your heart.

Don’t too much dependent on the consequence
As all these things are not lasting
Never to lose your self-esteem
And just hope some miracle is waiting.

There is only one life to live
So don’t take it seriously
Otherwise you can’t escape from it
Only you have to be cautiously.

It is necessary to have friends
With whom you can share your felicity
Sometimes it may curse you because of their absence
As loneliness is the utmost poverty.

Lucky are those who are liked by others
Who doesn’t want to be cared?
But the thing is everyone wishes for different colors
Consequently we don’t get as expect and should be prepared.

Still life is beautiful
When good people are around thee
Enjoy the time as it always usable
Only one life you have to live.

So why not create a beautiful place
For ourselves and others
By Living for the day!
And Living for the day!!

In life, if you…

Quote

In life, if you stand in a situation where you have to make one choice out of two, one your job and the other is your family; then you don’t have to think twice, family is most important , it can’t be compared , doesn’t matter how luxurious your life is.

You can lose your job and you can get another,even better, but if you lose your family then you will lose the ultimate happiness of life. So please don’t hurt your family. Infact give all the support that you can give.

Wishing, yes important but…

Holding hands with your loved ones.

Hello Reader, Wish you a great year ahead!
Wish you a great happy birthday!
Wish you merry Christmas!
Wish you happy Diwali….

Well, you will be thinking why I am greeting you,yes I am,as it makes you feeling better, doesn’t it?But in today’s scenario we often wish someone on a particular day and then…then we don’t have any touch with the person.Does it make any sense,? There are many people in your life whom you wish on the day of their birthday or on an occasion. You wish to your friend, your colleague, your relatives and the list continue.Some prefer to wish only on Facebook, some-other play with their fingures to text SMS, and others take a little effort to call them up. But soon after the day, there is not a single chat, even don’t bother to call them up, not having touch with them, and just wait for again next occasion to arrive;to wish, and thus the cycle continues.

Now you will be thinking , he/she has not wished you , that means they don’t take care of you, they even don’t concern about you. But it doesn’t matter if your loved ones forgot to bid you, unless both you are in touch regularly not occasionally. That is more important as everyone behaves well in the coffee table but true loved ones are those who can understand you, who realize what is more important for you and are always there to give their time.

The most important gift you want to give your loved ones to is make yourself present before them and spend some moments with them,doesn’t matter where you are , how busy you are.If you wish you will, because you don’t know when your loved ones will leave you and when they will, then only you realize that it is too late now and only you can regret but can’t forgive yourself.

So next time if someone has not wished you, don’t blame him or her , tell them, hey buddy, don’t you remember what is special about today? and believe me you will have a great time with each other. Loved ones will never leave you, they are your memories, they are there for you yesterday, today, tomorrow and forever. So don’t feel bad instead having a good time with them.

Wishing,yes important but if it comes from heart only.

When did you wish your loved ones last time from by heart?

Thanks for reading.
