Other side of Motivation

Inspiration to write this post came after the Talk given by my Company’s CEO few days back,That made me think about the other side of motivation and the argument she put was valid and acceptable.

I do read lot of Motivational books;on Leadership, on Management .Quotes on Motivation is always among my favorites, Still I have never read it or never heard it from anyone what she said.

what she said was,

You cannot Motivate anyone , You can give them the environment , you Can support them but the motivation is always a Self Motivation.

isn’t it True ? We read Motivational books, We listen to motivational audio’s. We go and attend Motivational Lectures by successful people, we go through their autobiography or biography to find out what different they did.

In this process, what we are doing is finding a Moment, event or a Quote which can motivate .
At one point we may find it , but the most important thing is what we are doing after finding it .

We are acting on it or we continue living our life without being motivated.

For me, Motivation is always a within, you can motivate your friends , colleagues , Juniors , relatives by sharing your story or any thing by which they feel better or motivated .

At the end its individual’s choice . What he or she wants to do ?

Do share what you think about it.

Keep smiling,
Cheers ,

Thinking too much

“Everybody wants to go to heaven, but nobody wants to die.”

I read a Quote by Peter Tosh and thought of sharing

This quote has no connection with the thoughts going on in my mind, Sometimes the way bombardment of the thoughts take place in my tiny little mind. I wonder where the hell they come from . I feel blessed that I meditate or else this overflow of thoughts would have drive me crazy.

————————————————————————————————————-
Mind keep wondering here , there and everywhere . It’s like a horse without bridle.people say I have a problem I think 100 things but do only one or two out of it for them I am incompetent Person who don’t do what he thinks .But for me It is Like I think a lot of things so that I can do what I like most,I always have options to select .Common at the end its my own thoughts and its up to me which to select and which to not . what do you do ?

“Eat to live, don’t live to eat.” — Benjamin Franklin

Eat to live or live to eat , This is real big question for me . I have admired Benjamin franklin for few of his ideology but when I heard about this quote and see that it was a quote by him . I was aback what ?  why ? He would have said this . I cannot eat to live , I live to eat. For foodie like me ,where trying new food is passion . it’s dilemma .

what’s your say ??

Mirror, Mirror What I Think When I look At You

This POST is Written For Daily Prompt : Mirror, Mirror

When I Look in the Mirror , I see a person who Says ….

May be I am doing what I am not supposed to do,
May be I am doing what I am not good at ,
May be I am not what you thought of ,
May be I am not what everyone wanted me to be ,
But I am what I wanted to be ,
I do what I want to .
I live the way I want to …

What you wanted to be when you were a Kid?

I was talking to one of my friend, Suddenly she popped up a question.She asked

What you wanted to be in your life when you were a kid?

Question was not new. Several times people have asked me or I would have asked people.I never thought on this ,But this time I pushed my self took my time and thought of it . what exactly I wanted to be ? what I am doing now is this what I wanted or I am into wrong profession?

I was not brought up in a very competitive environment by my parents,I never felt that my parents wanted me to out do some relatives kids, or they never expected me to bring X Percentage in my examination.They were happy with whatever I score , they were happy with whatever stream of education I selected.

I still remember few parents, they were in competition more than their kids.After result they were more concerned about others result then their own kid.

Back to the topic what I wanted to be , in my wildest dream when I was a kid . I wanted to be a Doctor and after few years I realized that I am a chatter box , I argue a lot so people said you can be a Advocate.But I was not that ambitious or you can say I was not that motivated or I was not concerned about what I will be after few years  .There was one job I always loved,that was of Waiter.I felt that in that profession you can meet several people , you can talk to them , you can make them laugh, there is lot about it.

Currently I am not a doctor ,not an advocate nor a waiter.Whatever I am doing I am happy.I don’t have to convince myself to go to office on Monday morning or I don’t wait for a weekend to get a break from office.

In childhood ,I was always taught how you can be nice to people, they taught me about treating people equally,they taught me about keeping myself happy ,They taught me about how I can keep myself content even in difficult times.

I have understood one thing , if you taught someone how to be happy and a content, that person will definitely grow in whatever profession he or she will go and they will definitely make world a better place.

Benjamin Franklin once said

Content makes poor men rich; discontent makes rich men poor.

What is your say on this ?

 

Life , Learning, Morality |Daily Prompt : Morality Play

This Post is written for Daily Post

Where do your morals come from — your family? Your faith? Your philosophical worldview? How do you deal with those who don’t share them, or derive them from a different source?

Definition of morality What i found on internet is

  Principles concerning the distinction between right and wrong or good and bad behavior. 

How morality is defined ? I feel it is individual’s principle which defines morality.Morality is very wide subject, It keep changing from country to country , culture to culture,family
to family or individual to individual.

One thing which is moral for me is immoral for you.
Drinking alcohol in India is immoral , but in other countries  its moral.
For one family inter-caste marriage is a sign of immorality but for other family , it’s a open-mindedness.
There are many other examples you and me can find around us , sometimes what we feel is inappropriate is acceptable to others.
For me Morality is something what i learn of my own,Meeting different People, Going to different cities , Being with different family and learning the way of living life and defining my own principles based on which my morality defines.

Daily Prompt :Moment of Kindness

This Post is Written for Daily Prompt

Describe a moment of kindness, between you and someone else — loved one or complete stranger.

What Defines Kindness?

Whenever i think of kindness a Quote Comes in to my mind

Kindness is the language which the deaf can hear and the blind can see.-Mark Twain

For me Kindness is something which should be a habit irrespective of for whom you are doing. It doesn’t Cost us anything , it’s an effort of making someone happy, making someone comfortable.

I have a incidence which i would love to share ,  security Guard name “Akash” is in my office , he will be always standing at the main entrance when i come to the office ,as i enter with my bike initially he use to stare me the way he looks at everyone, One day i gave him a Big broad smile and from that day itself , we have started sharing a bond whenever he sees me or i see him we will greet each other with a smile. and i tell you guys his smile cheer me up if i am feeling low.

Smile which i once did is paying me now daily. Though my moment of kindness has not cost me but it helps me daily , i Know there is one smiling face waiting to greet me always.

The Grown up Kid | Daily Prompt : Tagline

This  Post  is written for Daily Post

Often, our blogs have taglines. But what if humans did, too? What would your tagline be?

If humans  have a tagline , how wonderful the world will be , People’s intention, behavior, Character .Everything will be known by the tagline. No need to understand ,No need to judge .

All you have to do is ask them their Tagline .

When i show this post the Tagline came to my mind wasn’t Prompt , I gave a bit of thought.

Undoubtedly my Tagline should be.

 The Grown up kid.

No matter how Grown up I will be , the kid within me will always be there .

May be innocence of a kid is Gone with all the lesson Life has taught , But enjoying every moment like a kid is must.

May be I am busy achieving Goals , But enjoying happiness in every moment is must.

May be my eyes wants to shed a tear ,But smile on my face like a kid is must .

Except “YOU”

My eyes are swollen.
My heart is crying .
My mind is shouting , suddenly world seems different.
I have forgotten how to sleep,I have forgotten how to laugh.
I am searching happiness in material world ,which was always within me.
Beautiful mornings are now dreadful.
Soothing Sun rays are now pain.
Love within me is anger.
Patience within me is inflamed.
Destiny which was kind has become cruel.
Books once i loved are nothing more than a pile of paper.
People around me who were inspiration are now there to make me realize ,
I have everyone, Except “YOU”.

Being Idle

Doing nothing is tough,in my 3  years of professional career i never had this feeling ,and I always had complained to myself for not having enough time for myself, always being occupied , always finding a way to get busy.
 
Now this opportunity has popped out of no where and trust me ,This is the feeling i never felt.
 
I wondered and I asked myself , am i Being IDLE. and when the answer was assertive.I made a checklist of when you cannot call yourself a idle.
  • If you are enjoying your weekend watching movie on your laptop or on Television you are not idle ,you are watching movie.
  • If you are reading novel you are not idle, you are reading.
  • If you are hanging out with friends you are not idle ,you are hanging out.
  • If you are meditating , your mind does nothing but you are meditating so you are not idle .

So what exactly is being idle.

Out of my curiosity i Google what is the definition of IDLE .It says
idle means the act of doing nothing or no work”.

So with the reference to this definition I can say i am idle.
 
As everyone face this situation while joining a new company.They will make you sit idle until you are rolled out in a new project.

So I took this opportunity to reach to the people and make them realize Enjoy this time , this is something you wanted or you will crave for once you will start getting work(Many of my friends have complained about it earlier when they switched the job).

when you are idle ,we being a humans’ and a active social creature our mind will be flooded with all the thoughts like
  • You may end up questioning yourself about your own existence.(which i often do ).
  • your heartbreaks , if any.
  • your future plan , it can go weird sometimes.
  • your deepest concern ,which you never had courage of thinking.(no matter how much you avoid, it will come so go with the flow).
  • you may start questioning your interest.
It can be anything in this universe…
 
I will say wait for this time tighten your belts you never know when it comes , Grab it as a opportunity it will help you find yourself. it will help you find your interests and you may end up exploring yourself. You may re-invent yourself.
 
As i have found out few of my interests(Hope i can pursue them).

As my Dear Friend Sharon Says “Doing nothing is tough but if you can master the technique than you will be the one who gets the Liberation(Moksha) in this worldly pleasure.”
 
Cheers ,

Accept it

It takes a lot of motivation and courage to start writing and i was in search of it.
Thanks to “TEES MAAR KHAN” (A Bollywood movie) which made me feel i should have done something better than watching the movie for 3 hours(inspite of the terrible reviews).
When i was coming out of the movie, only one thought struck my mind. Inspite of having read the bad review about the movie i went for it and now i repent over my decision of watching it.
It gave me a headache,even Disprin failed to work. It was a poor decision and it costed me.This got me into a discussion with myself.Inspite of knowing the effect of an action we still go for a few things which will cost us the very next day.
Though i know i have to go to office in the next morning i still watch movies till 2am which results into getting up late and reaching office late.
Though we know getting into some relationship will  bring lots of problems still we go for it ignoring the consequences,only because we want it that way.
So if we keep our self open to others, their thoughts and ideas,life will be much easier and will be fun and will be without pain.
keep enjoying life and accept what comes.
