Miracles happen

A man was walking on a shaking bridge. He prayed for help! He saw God on the other side of the bridge & asked God to come near. But God did not come. The man got angry. He was about to give up, but with great difficulty, he crossed to the other side, and then […]

The label of Failure

I have learned a lot of life lessons just seeing my children grow up. Like when my son was just a year old and was trying to take his first steps and repeatedly fell down, he tried again…and again…and again. Sometimes he laughed. Sometimes he cried.

Lessons I Learned from My Dad

In my childhood days whenever I confessed to my dad, of my latest blunder, invariably there was a long silence. Was he angry? His silence was more menacing than a scolding or a lecture.

Continuing with yesterday’s post; the small, seemingly insignificant steps completed consistently over time create a radical difference in all aspects of life. I recently got my biannual blood tests etc. done. As expected all parameters were on the borderline and after a scowl from my better half, I took an appointment with my Doctor, also […]

The Story Behind “One Percent”

The Story Behind “One Percent” Benjamin Franklin said, “Little strokes fell great oaks.” Warren Buffett advised, “Life is like a snowball. The important thing is finding wet snow and a really long hill.” The Japanese have talked for centuries about Kaizen, which means ‘small continuous improvements.’ Instead of trying to make radical changes in a […]

True success comes from inner success

And yet, when we receive these things, we are left empty and unfulfilled. Therefore, we need to dedicate ourselves to getting to know who we truly are. Reconnect with your brilliance. Walk towards our fears. Evaluate the quality of your life and what you want it to stand for. Reflect on the beliefs that are […]

What shall I do now?

A man who took great pride in his lawn found himself with a large crop of dandelions. He tried every method he knew to get rid of them. Still, they plagued him. Finally, he wrote to the Department of Agriculture. He enumerated all the things he had tried and closed his letter with the question: […]
