    Light a Candle

    One way to expand our personality is to read success stories. When we get fired and inspired, our strength increases; our enthusiasm becomes intense and we outstrip our own expectations. We see people going to a hospital and helping patients expecting nothing in return. We see workers going to slums and making children literate. We see people working to increase the sub-soil water level, to decrease water scarcity. We see volunteers coming

  • Keep Moving forward Only

    Some species of sharks have to keep moving just to survive. It is also true of creative people who can’t rest on their laurels. All the time in life, we are either moving towards, on retreating from our cherished goals and it is upon us to decide to chase, rest or retreat.

    Understanding Mind-Body Communication

    Its a common thing for us to experience emotions directly through the body, for e.g when we go out to meet someone whom we love a lot, we walk lightly with our hearts pounding with excitement, whereas anxiety might tighten our muscles and make our hands sweat and tremble before an important job interview, Right?
