My Self Awareness/Meditation Techniques for Personal Improvement

The importance of meditation is great that ancient priests and leaders who knew created sort of mystery around it; the intention was to keep it away from the ordinary people.  Self-awareness, concentration, problem solving, inner peace, control, gentleness, empathy, healing, gratitude, healthy relationships and connection with nature are some of the benefits of meditation.

How to Take a Walk in Nature and Bring Out the Best in You.

One beautiful thing is that being in the present can heal the past and make the future clearer!

There is nothing more powerful than being in the present, being in now. Most times, we cannot help but either stay put in the past or roam in the future. We believe that experience matters a lot but we, at times, tend to get stuck while going over past experiences, especially the negative ones.

Why We Get Stuck in the Past or the Future

HOW UNHEALTHY AND UNEQUAL COMPARISON IS KILLING RELATIONSHIPS

A kid was proudly describing to two other kids on how his dad’s car is the best in the neighborhood. One of the two hearers cut him short and proved to him that the rich family living down the street has better car with good reasons. The kid became angry and sad at the same time.

Unhealthy comparison
Unhealthy comparison

Most times in life we hold on to certain things we have in life believing that they are the best. But from the moment a comparison is done with some other things and we find our own wanting, we (implicitly or explicitly) become sad about it. Worst of all, we start to become discontented with that which we have.

From the moment we put ourselves (or someone else does) on a scale with our colleagues, friends, or even strangers that we have not met, the feeling of inadequacy and redundancy comes in.

What if we are found better than the others? Continue reading HOW UNHEALTHY AND UNEQUAL COMPARISON IS KILLING RELATIONSHIPS

Why Great Ideas/Changes Meet Resistance and How to Overcome

The wolf and the pack

It is always more like a shock to organizational leaders that changes they, themselves, see beyond every doubt that will be beneficial to their systems meet resistance. The employees and more surprising even the managers object to such changes, upgrades and let us call it improvement. The challenge comes from missing out certain ingredients during planning on how to start the change.


Missing Out Adequate Information Communication.
This can make even the most simple changes look complex. The complex changes, with adequate communication, will look very simple. Thus it is necessary to plan an adequate and comprehensive communication system before initiating a change. In planning the communication system, there are certain loopholes that need to be filled:
 

a. What is in the change for us (personally)? Continue reading Why Great Ideas/Changes Meet Resistance and How to Overcome

WHO AM I?

Who am I? Who are you?

A friend of mine on Facebook recently posted that all his friends should describe themselves in one word. I took up the challenge and I actually thought deeply, meditated and searched my innermost self. A lot of answers came up but I felt that they were wrong. They did not fully describe who I am.

There are two versions of who I am and there is a great difference between who I am (apparently) and who I (really) am. Continue reading WHO AM I?

WHO DO PEOPLE SAY I AM?

If you can’t beat them, you join them (indecisiveness ends the statement here!). If you can’t join them, you leave them (an exhibition of the will!)

I believe strongly that every man and woman has willpower in him or her. Such willpower has been the major difference between man and closely related animals. Our choices, which decide who, what and where we are, largely is dependent on the willpower among others. The others include perception, imagination, intuition, memory and reasoning. Who defines us? What tells us who we are? Continue reading WHO DO PEOPLE SAY I AM?
