Keep Going

This is one of the most inspiring videos from one of best speakers, Denzel Washington, whose speeches act as inspiration not just for young actors, but for young people as a whole.

In this 10 minute video Washington talks about being resilient and moving forward in life without giving up in spite of all the hurdles you may face.

If you want to get on the path towards a better life, you must decide that taking steps down that path is more important than the things that are keeping you from it.

You must no longer allow yourself to be held back by a lack of discipline, a lack of resources, a lack of motivation, or a lack of initiative. And you must no longer allow yourself to be held back by fear.

Believe in love. Believe in…

Monday Magic – Always Keep Believing

Believe in love. Believe in magic. Hell, believe in Santa Clause. Believe in others. Believe in yourself. Believe in your dreams. If you don’t, who will?
― Jon Bon Jovi

Isn’t it always so if we keep on believing and if we open our minds to all kinds of possibilities so many things can happen for us that it simply is like magic. Everyday things are happening all around us and we have the choice to seek them out or hide away. Life would never be half as much fun if we did not sometimes walk on the wild side and let the child inside of us come out to play.

There are so many places I have discovered in life that it seems they magically appeared to me. However, if I had not gone out looking for them, if I had not been interested to see what is around the bend, then I would have lost out on so much. I lived a great part of my life in New York City where I was born and raised. One summer day I was walking around the hot streets and turned into a little street I had not even notice before. There among the buildings I discovered a little cafe with a waterfall coming down a brick wall. Suddenly I was no longer on the street sof NYC but in a tropical oasis as I sipped a cold beer on that hot afternoon.

There are many wonderful songs that have magic in the title and many of them inspires you to believe in the unbelievable.

“Do You Believe in Magic” The Lovin’ Spoonful In this song the magic referred to is the way that music can give you the happiness and freedom to feel really good about yourself as you listen to it. Isn’t always that way when a day is dull and dreary we put on some music we enjoy and suddenly like magic everything seems to be all right.

“Magic Carpet Ride” Steppenwolf tells us that dreaming is all right that dreams can take us away from the ordinary and take us on an incredible journey. Sit back and listen to the song and perhaps you’ll imagine you’re on a magic carpet ride.

Resilience is the key to a better life

There is a popular American English proverb that says,

“When the going gets tough, the tough get going”

The proverb means that when life brings you challenges, strong people don’t just sit there doing nothing. They rises to the challenges and face them bravely, and are always successful provided they are resilient.

Monday Magic!

I am sorry for a late post, but co-incidentally WiFi at my home and office has stopped working. 😛

Monday it is! I have spent my entire last week wondering what inspires me for the Magic Monday feature.
Personal anecdotes, stories, what?!
But then I found the perfect answer, Jay Shetty.
Do you know who he is?
Jay Shetty is a Huffington Post featured Vlogger, motivational philosopher, keynote speaker and urban monk. He is the creator of Invisible World, short film series on YouTube and coach to several corporations including Accenture, Nasdaq, Bank of England and EY.
You must be wondering, what makes him such an inspiration. I have been following Jay Shetty on social media channels for a few months now, ever since I saw his first video shared by Huffington. His videos are my daily dose of inspiration, and it dosen’t always has to be when I am feeling low. Let me show you some of his videos so that you will know exactly what I am talking about.

Let’s build a life and not just a resume.

Redifining Happiness: Let’s not make happiness and success about the size of our homes, but about the size of our heart.

Why we should never stop learning– ‘We should be so focused in improving yourselves that you don’t have any energy to criticise others’ – Jay Shetty

Do you feel what I feel after watching these videos? Does it change how you view your life in a better way? Aren’t these inspirational?

Be The Change You Wish To See In The World!

Let me tell you a story today.

Once upon a time, there was a little boy who loved eating sugar.  He would chew on his sugar granules throughout the day. His mother was worried that this excessive gorging on sugar would take a toll on his  health. She tried everything from gently coaxing him out of this habit to scaring him to hiding the containers, but to no avail. Finally, she decided to take him to his idol, Mahatma Gandhi, so that the great man could talk some sense to her child.

So the next day, she started on the journey with her son. When she finally reached his Ashram, she saw that hundreds of people were waiting to meet the great man. When finally their turn came, the mother explained to  Gandhi the whole situation, and requested him to talk to her son. Gandhi smiled at her and said, “Please come back in 2 weeks time and I shall speak with your son”. She was confused, but she left without any protest.

Two weeks passed, she went back to the Ashram with her son and this time, Gandhi immediately spoke to her son. Curious, she asked Gandhi why he hadn’t spoken to her son the last time they had come. Gandhi smiled and said, “Well, two weeks ago, I too was eating too much of sugar”. He couldn’t preach what he didn’t practice.

It’s easy to complain about the world and other people, but if you cannot implement the changes in your own life, then you have no right to complain. Don’t be a hypocrite!

We do not have control over others. We cannot change others, only ourselves. If you want to see some change in the world, you must start with yourself. Every significant change that has ever happened in this world has been the result of changes which began at individual level. Revolutions have happened because one person had the courage to stand up for what they believed in  and didn’t wait for others to take action. Now, you don’t have to pick up your megaphone and yell for a revolution if that’s not something you want to do. Just be an embodiment of what you believe in and you might be able to move others with your belief too.

But in order for things to change, you have to change. Don’t just complain how this world sucks. Be the Change!
