An attitude

Image
As I think and grow, I understand the impact of an attitude in life. An attitude is more important than reality. It is more valuable than education or money, success or failure, skills or appearance & what others say or act. An attitude is higher than everything. It can make or break. It can create or destroy. Ultimately it plays a vital role in building a life.
Remarkable thing is that we are the in-charge of our attitude and we have a choice to have it positive or negative. We can’t avoid the inevitable, but we can do one thing that is to play with an attitude. Who can play with own attitude is the master of self. So if we want to master the self then we must learn how to master an attitude.The man with a mastery of an attidue can overcome any obstacle and rule over any circumstance that falls in life. “Mastering others is strength, but mastering self is true power.” Lao Tzu

Attitude determines altitude

Image
It is wisely said that "Attitude determines altitude." It is very interesting to know that what winners say and what losers say. After all what we say reflects our attitude. Think and decide what category I belong to. And If any one find that he needs to change ... then change what we think and say and be a winner. It is too simple to act. 
The Winner is always part of the answer;
The Loser is always part of the problem. 
The Winner always has a program;
The Loser always has an excuse.
The Winner says, “Let me do it for you”; The Loser says, “That is not my job.”
The Winner sees an answer for every problem; The Loser sees a problem for every answer.
The Winner says, “It may be difficult but it is possible”; The Loser says, “It may be possible but it is too difficult.”
When a Winner makes a mistake, he says, “I was wrong”;
When a Loser makes a mistake, he says, “It wasn't my fault.”
A Winner makes commitments;
A Loser makes promises.
Winners have dreams;
Losers have schemes.
Winners …

Break limits

An elephant can lift in excess of a ton of weight with just its trunk. Still an elephant is conditioned to stay in one place with a weak rope and a stake. Only a small rope tied to its front leg holds an elephant. No chains, no cages. It is obvious that the elephant can, at anytime, break away from its bonds but for some reason, it does not.

The reason is that, when the elephant is a baby and much smaller, it is tied to a strong chain and strong tree. The baby is weak but the chain and tree are strong. The baby is not used to being tied, so it keeps tugging and pulling the chain, in vain. A day comes when it realizes that all the tugging and pulling will not help and it gives up, thinking that it cannot break away from the bond. It stops and stands still.

And when the baby elephant becomes the mighty giant elephant, he is tied with a weak rope and a small stake. The elephant could with one tug, walk away free, but it goes nowhere because it has been conditioned to believe that it cannot…

The one you feed !

Image
One evening an old Cherokee told his grandson about a battle that goes on inside all people. He said, 'My son, the battle is between two 'wolves' inside us all.

One is Evil. It is anger, envy, jealousy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, and ego.

The other is Good. It is joy, peace, love, hope, confidence, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion and faith.'

The grandson thought about it for a minute and then asked his grandfather: 'Which wolf wins?'

The old Cherokee simply replied, 'The one you feed.' So always think positive and be the master of self not the slave.

Delight Eternal

These are few drops from the ocen of infinite (Upanishadas)

(1) Transliteration :

Yo vai bhuma tat sukham,
Nalpe sukham asti,
Bhumaiva sukham. ...Upanishada...

Translation :

The Infinite is the satisfying happiness.
In the finite no happiness can ever breathe.
The Infinite alone is the fulfilling happiness.

Meaning :

The Life Infinite is the Delight Infinite.
The finite is a stranger to the infinite Happiness.
Infinity without Delight means the creation without a Creator.
Indeed, this is absurd.
Delight without Infinity means the Creator without the creation.
Indeed, this is equally absurd.

(2) Transliteration :

Anandadd hy eva khalv imani bhutani jayante,
Anandena jatani jivanti
Anandam prayantyabhisam visanti...Upanishada...

Translation :

From Delight we came into existence.
In Delight we grow.
At the end of our journey’s close,
Into Delight we retire.

Meaning :

God has written an open letter to His human children.
His letter runs:
“My sweetest children,
you are the only delight of
My un…

A wise man once sat in the audience & cracked a joke.
All laughed like crazy. After a moment he cracked the same joke again and a little less people laughed this time. He cracked the same joke again & again, when there was no laughter in the crowd, he smiled and said,
“When u can’t laugh on the same joke again & again, then why do u keep crying over the same thing over and over again”
Life is small and moments are less.. Don't waste it ...Just enjoy...

Person hindering your growth is dead !

Image
One day all the employees reached the office and they saw a big advice on the door on which it was written:
“Yesterday the person who has been hindering your growth in this company passed away. We invite you to join the funeral”.

In the beginning, they all got sad for the death of one of their colleagues, but after a while they started getting curious to know who was that man who hindered the growth of his colleagues and the company itself.

The excitement in the gym was such that security agents were ordered to control the crowd within the room. The more people reached the coffin, the more the excitement heated up.

Everyone thought: “Who is this guy who was hindering my progress? Well, at least he died!”

One by one the thrilled employees got closer to the coffin, and when they looked inside it they suddenly became speechless. They stood nearby the coffin, shocked and in silence, as if someone had touched the deepest part of their soul.

There was a mirror inside the coffin: everyone w…

Self Esteem

"No one can hurt you without your consent"
On the first day, as President Abraham Lincoln entered to give his inaugural address, just in the middle, one man stood up. He was a rich aristocrat. He said, “Mr. Lincoln, you should not forget that your father used to make shoes for my family.” And the whole Senate laughed; they thought they had made a fool of Abraham Lincoln.
But Lincoln --- and that type of people are made of a totally different mettle. Lincoln looked at the man and said, “Sir I know that my father used to make shoes in your house for your family, and there will be many others here…. Because the way he made shoes; nobody else can. He was a creator. His shoes were not just shoes; he poured his whole soul in it. I want to ask you, have you any complaint? Because I know how to make shoes myself. If you have any complaint I can make another pair of shoes. But as far as I know, nobody has ever complained about my father’s shoes. He was a genius, a great creator an…

But the thing is that we are always influenced by others. We never use our mind. We are always ruled by others.

We are born to be great. Think that we can do. We can make difference. We are not here in India to just follow others. We are made for miracles. We can change the world. Dare to dream. Have vision in life. Act on the way u like to live and be a leader.

What is Nation ? Is Nation bounded by geographical area ?
Real Nation is the Integration of Special and Rich Ideology, Special Living Customs, Special Cultural and Religious Customs. This can be known as Nation.

What abt us ? V r living in India but r v really Indians ? Do we believe in our own Nation. We always abuse our nation and blaming others 4 what v r today. Do v own our responsibility ? V r crazy for going abroad and also abt Imported Articles. Don’t v know that Self Respect comes out of Self Reliance ? R v abusing in foreign ? V r obeying their system without complain. Can v be same here ?

If we look into our Glorious History, v will be able to see many examples who had sacrificed their life. Our Rishis were divine souls. They were highly intelligent. We have Vedas, Upanishads, Purans, Bhagvad Gita, Mahabharat, Ramayan and what not ...We have Rich Ideology then why v r so narrow and selfish. Why we don’t think of or own Nation, our own Motherland. Can v abuse our own Mother …
