Take Risks Differently

We often hear and speak about taking risk is the key to get successful and wealthy in life. True to a great extent. Here, we ironically regard highly about financial risking. We are so much conditioned to conceive that risk taking is always a monetary affair when it comes to success and prosperity. Our society and culture reinforce with the idea in our minds through models that are rare of the kind and literatures that are plenty in that sort. But, most of us are trapped in that societal fancy of impractical models to mislead our vulnerable minds to make us believe such unrealistic but fascinating models. Rare and lucky models of financially successful people who risked money to invite their fortunes are projected in front of us to fascinate us about them and their act of risking money. Again, abundant and easy collection of literatures on taking risk by those who have never taken any serious financial risk are also projected for our serious reading to make us mesmerised of the effects

Avoid Occasions (For Better Living)

You must have noticed the label on some packages: ‘Fragile! Handle with Care!’ When we seriously think about life, the label is very much applicable to it. Life is something fragile if we do not handle that with great care. If you think, let your life go on its own course, the label is not appropriate to your life. But, there will come some time when you realize that the label is valid for your carefree life too, even though you don’t care for that and go past ignoring such occasions. Interestingly, it is not because the label is irrelevant, but because you don’t value that. Anyway, a purposeful life cannot ignore the warning and live life without any precautions for the future. Because, there are variety of situations that can spoil many of your precious aspects of life if you don’t take strict preventive measures not to happen anything such. I made a detailed study on such occasions in people’s lives that must be avoided for a better living and a rewarding future. 1.     That Spoil

Who Is Free?

When we look around, we see some people enjoying higher degree of freedom in life than we do. Though they are a very few in number they grab our attention by their charm beyond their beauty and our admiration by their grace beyond their smile. We wish to relish the same amount of freedom in our life too. But how? You know, we also can enjoy the same amount of freedom if we can also practice what they do in their lives. When I began to notice such people (it is noticeable only when we begin to think about life a little more seriously from a meaningful perspective), I developed a kind of curiosity to study their path of life and came up with some stark findings common among them that I am going to share here with you. Those traits can be inculcated in our life and we also can experience more freedom than we do have now. 1.     1. Brave is free A coward can never be free in life but always under the bondage of his variety of fears. He is afraid of anything and everything around him.

The ‘Secret’ Behind SELF CONFIDENCE

 Though confidence is ideally universal, it is practically not so. It is ideally universal because it can be acquired by anyone in any field. But, it is not practically universal because all could not possess it and no one could possess it in all fields. It clearly indicates that self confidence is extremely strict in its selectively universal and conditionally practical nature. This realisation by itself speaks about the secret of self confidence that it is so public. Then, what is that public secret about self confidence? Let us look into that. The one who is confident in public speaking may not be so in creative writing. The other who can paint a picture well may not be confident in driving a car. Even the one who is confident in fishing may not be that confident in swimming, the skill very close to a fisherman. The confidence in fishing with a net is different from the confidence in fishing with a hook and they both are even different from the confidence in fishing with a spear. Th

How To Discover Your Purpose?

Do you have a purpose in life? if yes, great! Go on. If not, sorry! Get one. I have two queries to those don’t have a purpose in life yet. One, is it because you don’t want one? Two, is it because you could not find one? If your yes is to the first question, again sorry! But, still you have time and option to choose a purposeful and meaningful life. If your yes is to the second question, no worries. Let us go get one! How? Just come with me a little more time ahead. Ask questions to yourself and find answers for yourself when asked for. In the end you will come up with a purpose for you to live the rest of your life. Still, it’s up to you if that should be pursued or not. If not pursued, those who said yes to my first question are cleverer because they did not waste their time to discover a purpose. In my opinion, having an unpursued purpose and having no purpose are practically the same. Now ask yourself and find answers to the following questions. Write them down in your journal for

How do you feel Purposeful Life like?

Now, let us discuss some of the interior and the exterior indicators of a purposeful life that are experiential to the purposer while heshe is living it out. The interior signs and the exterior signals one experiences while heshe is living a purposeful life are extremely significant for himher to move forward confidently and contently. A purposeful person must be watchful of them to examine if hisher ways are still right or wrong. And, it will help himher to correct and to confirm hisher ways ahead so that heshe never go deviated from hisher track of purpose and meaning. Purpose influences your thoughts, words and actions. Purpose shapes your goals; purpose points your directions; purpose filters your priorities; purpose frames your environments; purpose schedules your days; and, purpose designs your future. Purposeful life has a sense of urgency against procrastinations and a will of discipline against timewasters. People with purpose don’t fret on small stuffs and don’t worry about

Purposes & Priorities of Life

In a very simple way we can say that our purpose of life is the purposeful change we are deliberately going to make in this world by living here. We can categorize purpose into many considering different aspects of the purpose and the purposer. Purpose can be positive and negative based on the result. If your purpose brings in constructive changes in this world, it can be called positive purpose. And, if the change is destructive, it’s negative purpose. Based on the intention of the purposer, purpose can be two types: selfish and selfless. If the purpose is for the egoistic gains of the purposer, it’s selfish; and if it’s with the altruistic motive, it can be called selfless purpose. Again, based on the awareness of the purposer about hisher purpose, they can be divided into four. One, unconsciously purposeless, is the one who is not aware that heshe has to have a purpose. Two, consciously purposeless, is the one who is aware that heshe is living hisher life without any pupose. Three,

What Is Your (My) Purpose Of Life?

Purposeful life = Meaningful life. This is purely subjective when it comes to our lives individually. Purpose and meaning of your life must be defined by yourself. That is how my purpose of life differs from yours. As your purpose of life changes your meaning of life also changes. Whereas, when we try to define ‘the purpose’ of life instead of ‘your/my purpose’, we all get the same meaning and definition of life which we discussed in the previous post. What is purpose of life? Is it our goals or ambitions or wishes in life? No. Then what? Our purpose of life is the single cause that we are living our entire life for. Do we have ONE like that? Most of us do not have one yet. If so, we don’t have meaning of life too. Think about it. Living for the sake of living is not a purposeful and meaningful life. That kind of a life is with everything in this world like stars, planets, mountains, rivers, trees, animals, birds, and man too. Purpose comes from deliberation and deliberation is the r

The Purpose Vs My Purpose (of Life)

Let us leave the fundamental question “what is the purpose of life” unaddressed as that does not serve ‘our purpose’ of this discussion. Furthermore, I don’t recommend you to spoil your entire life to search and research answer to that impractical question to make yourself a ‘metaphysical philosopher’ and finally end up without any concrete answer to that question. In my opinion, whatever the answer you give to that fundamental question, it may change as life and time change. Because, the conclusions we arrive at today are based on our present understanding of life, time and the world. Though this fact is valid for even our physical questions too, our conclusions to that physical questions can serve and lead to better answers and findings on them tomorrow. Whereas, for metaphysical questions, if the conclusions are nullified, the concluders entire efforts are going to be useless and they do not serve anything  further anyway. Thus, those attempts become a waste of time, energy and reso

One's Destiny

‘Self Actualization through Self Realization’ is the DESTINY human life. As it’s destiny, it’s unavoidably obliged too. Regardless of our attention to it, it can happen consciously or unconsciously. Making it a conscious process is our duty anyway. Everyone has 'hisher' own unique destiny in life; and, which completes only at the accomplishment of hisher mission in this world. Destiny is nothing but the creative purpose (nothing divine here when I mean it) of a creature through its evolutionary progression. The nature has infused the ability and energy to actualize this purpose of creation within every creature. But, it is our obligation to realize our destiny and toil for its actualization as we are endowed with the faculty of mind. All other creatures and objects achieve their fulfilment through their ‘natural instinct’ and their destiny is to cooperate with and assist human beings to actualize their destiny. Because, by the gradual evolutionary development of man, the na

Code of Life (COL)

Every human being must have a ‘Code of Life’, either self made or adopted, for 'hisher' discipline and fulfilment of life. Let me delve straight into the matter. I stipulate a common ‘Code of Life’ (COL) for all that consists of only three golden rules: Concentration, Originality and Love (again COL). Concentration is nothing but the complete involvement of a person in each moment of his life. Even a single fraction of one's time should not pass 'himher' without hisher awareness of that moment. It is the state of mind to be developed with a superior level of attention. When we sleep, laugh, study, and even when we fight with someone, we must concentrate fully on it, so that the flaws of carelessness will not threat our activities and their result. The culmination of concentration of a human life is taking place at the time of hisher attentive death with the bliss of fulfilment. Originality is the state of human self observed of stainless individuality. In other wo

Success = Happiness

For me, being successful is being happy, and being happy is being successful. Then, in life, the secret of success is happiness, and the secret of happiness is success. If we continue our discussion like this, it will never get over. Therefore, let’s go specific to the matter. So, here is that precise question. what to do to become successful in life? Yes, here is the answer. Attain and maintain what makes you happy in life! As simple as that. But, what is 'that' makes you happy in life? What is 'that' to attain and maintain to be successful in life? Here comes difference in preferences among each one of us. Let that be naturally so. Everyone has a small list of priorities that makes him or her happy in life. Our prime list is too small. But, a long ever growing list is hidden within every one of us as part of our basic human nature. Let us forget about that unending long list as that can never be satisfied completely. My prime list contains only three elements that m

Mistakes Done In The Past

Do you regret about your mistakes in the past? If yes, very good. Correct them if possible; or else, decide not to repeat them anymore. Done. Do you feel guilty about your mistakes in the past? If yes, too bad. Because that can do nothing with your mistakes already done. But, your feelings of guilt can adversely affect on your today and tomorrow. Never ever allow them to spoil your life ahead. That's it. Even though your mistakes were deliberate, don't carry their burdens anymore ahead. Just shed them off from the shoulders of your mind now itself. Consider those mistakes as reflections of your immature understandings about them at that point of time. Learn lessons from them. Resolve and settle them. Make an emphatic decision not to commit them again. Cheer up and  live a changed life reflecting your wisdom attained from your mistakes in the past. Remember, life has to go on anyway, so make that to go well anyway. Eh?
