Are We Original ?

Imbalance in life has set so deep in our life that we are completely modified and living in an artificial state of mind. Our originality is lost and we have become totally a different person.

Let's test our originality and ask ourselves some questions :

1. Can we smile in real ?
2. Can we laugh freely ?
3. Do we feel close to our family ?
4. Can we really define our own happiness ?
5. Do we enjoy being with our friends ?
6. Are we afraid of something all the time ?
7. Have art and hobbies completely evaporated from our life ?
8. Feeling fed up ?

Such honest questioning will open our heart and pave way to do really meaningful in life. We are not taking adequate pauses while remaining in the race. This causes our inner system highly stressed and prone to failure. What for we are in the race ? We must ensure that whether it is just for the sake of showing off or it is really needed. We don't have time to read or discuss such things as we are not original now.

There may be varied reasons for loosing originality like attaining prosperity, meeting some accident, bad health, reaching a powerful position, the disloyalty of some closed friend or relative, break up in any relationship and the list goes on.

Most negative part of loosing originality is that those who lost it, they simply don't agree to this and continue to suffer for a prolonged time or forever sometime.

Mute question is how to remain original. There are symptoms we must observe and knowing these would make it easier to remain original.

We must observe and find answers to these questions :

Does our friend visit or contact us less as compared to earlier ?
Do we feel isolated in our society?
Do people respect us from the heart or just for some compulsion ?
If working, Are we sought after or avoided by subordinates ?

Such introspection may bring some real changes if we are honest with ourselves. In fact an original person only can enjoy life and every moment of it. Being original makes us stress free always as we are not pretending anything and close to nature and ultimately more meaning to our life too.

उम्मीदों का आँगन

वक्त के भाल पर सिलवटें बढ़ने लगी
मंजिल साधने आरजु उमड़ने लगी।
जान लो कि में ना थका नहीँ हारा हूं
आज भी बदस्तुर सिर्फ तुम्हारा हूँ।
तपते रेगिस्तान में फुहार आई
आप क्या आये बहार आयी।
इंतजार तो बहुत हुआ पर गम नहीं
सामने हो आप ये कुछ कम नहीं।
वादा करो हर वक़्त रूबरू रहोगे
हमसे हर गिला शिकवा कहोगे।
रोशन हुआ जहां आपकी नजरो से
क्या खूब निकले हम सब खतरों से।
साकार करेंगे हर एक सपना
आबाद रहे ये सकून अपना।

Pursue your goals

Every time when you feel things will move, time will change, just see whether you are pursuing your goals on a sustained basis or waiting for the destiny to change repeatedly. If our expectations are high then efforts too must be more timely and focused.

Never conclude your victory or defeat without putting enough efforts. Time plays it's role but our own initiative makes a difference.

Goals may be anything, study, reaching a particular position, winning heart, become an influential leader, targeting an award, mastering a skill or profession and so on. Higher the goal, higher would be the need for efforts. Sitting pretty in your drawing room and thinking of changing everything with miracles must be avoided. Instead wholehearted persuasions of the goal will lead us to build our own incredible empire we dream upon. One can say, coming out of comfort zone would be the first step to pursue his or her goals. At the beginning, the journey may be very boring but after crossing some milestones it would become interesting more and more.

There are four reasons for not achieving goals

1. Lack of burning desire : there are people who get influenced by changing circumstances for instance, Just after reading newspaper headlines or meeting someone they set their goals and don't know what they wish to achieve. One should live the dream.

2. Setting wrong or unpractical goals : Be practical while setting a goal. Decide short term and long term goals and focus on what can be accomplished early. Unpractical goals will lead us to frustration only.

3. Efforts in wrong direction : even after putting all out effort goals are not within reach then certainly our efforts are in the wrong direction. Rethink your strategy and make suitable changes in your action plan.

4. Lack of resources : most of the time we find people complaining about the resources. We must first assess all three points above then think about all those who achieved their goals and ask ourselves whether we are the only one who are deprived of resources. Proper planning and action in the right direction on a sustained basis will surely lead us to great success.

Let's move and strive for the best.

Cultivate a hobby

When life seems to be at standstill hobby can be an answer. Most of us have some hobbies but we don't pay much attention to them due to many constraints. Truly speaking hobby is like communicating with one self and if cultivated properly it provides valuable meaning to life.

One can choose a hobby or hobbies as per his or her wishes. We find people enjoying with painting, writing, playing some games, walking, gardening, speaking, advising, counselling, singing, traveling, meditating and so on. When we do something as per our choice, it makes us like talking to ourselves and we start expressing in true senses which bring out stagnancy set in our life. Now we must see one important fact that while choosing hobby ensure that whether it is really communication with oneself or it is just killing our time. For instance watching a television series is not a hobby it can be fun. I feel we should not classify such things in the hobby though one can find these very essential for him.

My point is that hobby should increase your inner pleasure and satisfaction level as you advance in devoting into it. There are many people around the world whose hobby took them to height and they converted it in their profession with great success too. In most of the cases people surrender and compromise with their hobbies and eventually they loose charm in life. Once charm and inspiration lost, it becomes difficult to come out of negativity which haunts on a sustained basis and this makes us compelled to think about our hobbies which enables us to talk with our own soul really.

Personality Development Audio in Hindi - Money

Welcome to the 2nd audio in the series of Personality Development Audio in Hindi.

In this audio I describe how to manage wealth. Click play button now to know important points about money (पैसा).

Oct 15, 2014

पैसा (Money)

पैसा अथवा धन इंसान के द्वारा बनाई हुई वस्तुओं में शायद सबसे ज्यादा चर्चित विषय हे। आइये इस पैसे के बारे में कुछ रोचक बिन्दुओं को समझे।

1. पैसा हो और नहीं हो, दोनों ही अवस्था में व्यक्ति को व्यस्त कर देता हे। होने की अवस्था में धन को सँभालने में और नहीं हो तो उसे कमाने की भागदौड़ में जीवन का अधिकांश समय चला जाता हे।

2. पैसे से यदि जेब भरी हो तो आत्मविश्वास में वृद्धि होना आम बात हे परन्तु यदि पैसा पास नहीं हो तो चेहरे की चमक लुप्त हो जाती हे।

3. यदि पैसा ज्यादा हो जाये तो उस पैसे से और ज्यादा पैसा बनाने की लालसा बढ़ जाती हे और उस पैसे का उपयोग कैसे किया जाय इस बिंदु से ध्यान बिलकुल हट जाता हे।

4. पैसे में न जाने कैसी चुम्बकीय शक्ति होती हे कि इसके कारण सगे सम्बन्धी, मित्र आदि स्वतः अपनापन दिखाते हे।

5. पैसा सब कुछ तो नहीं पर बहुत कुछ खरीद सकता हे। इस दृष्टी से यह संसार को चलायमान बनाये रखता हे।

6. सुख के लिए दौलत पाने की हौड में दौलत तो कइयों को मिली हे परन्तु दौलत से सचमुच सुख कितनो को मिल सका इस पर खोज जारी हे।

7. धन जब हाथ में हो तभी अपना होता हे । सिर्फ आने की सम्भावना उसे अपना नहीं बना देती। कई लोगो ने सिर्फ धन के आने की संभावनाओं पर बड़े सौदे किये और कुछ ने कमाया भी होगा परन्तु उसमे से अधिकांश लोग अपना सारा भविष्य दांव पर लगा बैठे।

8. यह पैसा पड़ा पड़ा नष्ट हो जाता हे। महंगाई से इसकी सही कीमत घट जाती हे या समय के घटनाक्रम इसको सही सँभालने वाले के पास पहुंचा देते हे।

9. पैसा यदि मेहनत और अच्छी नियत से कमाया हे तो व्यक्ति में उस पैसे की कीमत की अच्छी समझ होती हे अन्यथा अहंकार स्पष्ट रूप से दिखाई देने लगता हे।

10. उपभोग ओर दान ये दो महत्वपूर्ण उपयोग पैसे के होते हे । यदि इन दोनों में से कुछ भी नहीं किया तो समझ लो कि वो पैसा कमाने वाले के काम नहीं आने वाला।

11. यदि पैसे का ज्यादा प्रदर्शन किया तो गवर्नमेंट यानि सरकार या गुंडे कोई तो पीछे पड़ने ही वाले हे।

12. पैसे यानि धन के कई स्वरुप होते हे जैसे मुद्रा, सोना, चांदी, मकान, बंगले कार, शेयर, कल कारखाने, बाग बगीचे, जमीन आदि। सभी स्वरूपों में पैसे की सतत सुरक्षा बहुत बड़ी चिन्ता बन जाती हे।

13. किसको कितना पैसा चाहिए यह व्यक्तिगत प्रश्न हे परन्तु किस समय कितना न्यूनतम पैसा जरुरी हे इसका विचार तो सभी को समय पर करना चाहिए।

14. पैसे की बुनियाद पर बने रिश्ते कमजोर होते हे फिर भी इससे पैसा कमजोर नहीं हो जाता, जहाँ पैसे का काम हो वहाँ पैसा ही चाहिये।

15. बहुत बड़ा आश्चर्य का विषय हे कि पैसा कमाने में बहुत लोग महारथी होते है पर उसे कब, किसपे, कैसे खर्च करे , इसमे बहुत गहन प्रशिक्षण की आवश्यकता है।

16. पैसा अपने आप में न बुरा होता हे न अच्छा ये तो हर व्यक्ति का दृष्टिकोण और उसे पाने एवं उपयोग के तरीको पर निर्भर करता हे कि पैसा उसकी दुनियां को आसान बनायें या वही पैसा उसकी मुश्किलों का सबसे बड़ा कारण बन जाये। संतुलित नजरिया ही इंसान के जीवन में आनंद ला सकता हे।

प्रयास (Efforts)

जब सब कुछ रुका हुआ हो तुम पहल करना निसंकोच, प्रयास करके खुद को सफल करना। ये मोड़ जिंदगी में तुम्हें स्थापित करेंगे और, संभव है कि तुम देव तु...
