If you listen to, or read any prosperous, happy person on this planet earth, they mostly have very humble and grateful approach about life. Every morning listen to them or read them. They make you feel  gratitude towards minor things in life that you might hadn’t noticed before, like having both of your feet to walk on, having eyes to see with, having home to live in, even having headphones to listen music. This ‘thankful’ energy will rest with you throughout the day.

Welcome Your Real World, Abstract is Damaging

friends & family

Whole world is busy today, routines are hectic, people are getting mean, and no one calls you until has one’s own interest. We are in much hurry today. Lives have been narrowed to get up, go to work, breakfast on the way, work & more work, leave for home, have dinner (if you have time), make your children sleep, and then sleep.

We don’t have much time to be sensitive about ourselves then how can other manage their precious time to take interest in our lives? On one side we feel free to have nobody to have concerns about us but on the other hand our sadness turns to depression when nobody is actually there to hear us.

What an irony is this!

This 21st century has lost in social media. According to recent figures Facebook users are around 1.4 billion, where 47% of whole internet users are on Fb and almost 75% revenue of Facebook is generated from mobile advertising. And this world is unaware of what it is losing actually.

The sad reality is what we do mostly on this social media. First and foremost we make friends and a lot of friends. Then we like each other’s stuffs and share our every minute activity. What we eat, where we go, whom we met, whose concert did we attended last night, and who is our current crush we know all these stuffs about each other and have no time for the parents living in next to our room, siblings whose Continue reading

How To Regain Motivation?  A Story

Regain Motivation

“Do you want to know who you are? Don’t ask. Act! Action will delineate and define you.” Thomas Jefferson

Today I saw this quote in my autograph diary, an autograph that was penned by one of my favorite school teachers.

When 7 years back I read this quote first time I was so inspired. I felt the spark and motivation in my blood to find and define myself. With the passage of time the spark kept growing. I passed through the journey from school to college to university and then got married.

My spark was still alive; the spark to “do” something that defines me. My husband made me felt so much lucky by supporting my spark and let me be the way I wanted to be and even he offered me to join him in his business that could led me to an independent business woman.

And you know what? I joined him in business.

Let me introduce you a bit of my hubby and the nature of one of his businesses. He is 30 years old young man, full of motivation, hard work, dedication, optimism, consistency, determination and a man with great goals and purposeful life. Besides doing his job, he is running his online business very successfully. And I was offered to handle the matters of this e-store. My Masters degree is in business administration but specialization is in finance yet I took this opportunity as a challenge with all up emotions.

I did accept the offer, learnt some relevant basic knowledge, and there I went on.

I worked hard, showed some great results but

3 months later…

After doing daily work with high hopes, I was no more there. I lost my interest in that work, boredom was there so was the dullness. It might happen to many people at least once in their life.

Being not able to explain myself the reasons behind, it became routine to switch on the computer, looking for some latest news, watching movies or any of my favorite shows, killing time on facebook & twitter, and finally shutting down the system.

I felt like I might want some break and then there were question, “Break from what, from just 3 months work? What will I do if I’m not doing this? I’ll be all day alone in a home and nothing to do but just sleeping, eating and watching TV?” Continue reading
