Enriching enterprise

We often hear people saying they have changed with time. Moving on, most of us realise that time hasn’t really changed us but unfolded us more. It’s all within us. Transformation is about giving right expressions to what we have. It happens to everyone some time or the other. Extraordinary people don’t wait for time to change them. Instead, they realise their potentials and try to exploit them to fullest. No matter how intellectual one is, intellect doesn’t come to the fore unless it’s challenged.
Usually, our intellects remain unexploited and inner potentials hidden, as they are not challenged. Researches have shown that commonly, human beings apply only five per cent of their brains while 95 per cent remains unused! We are often unaware as to how much our brains are exploited since most of our energy is wasted in observing others’ brain applications! Our true potential isn’t revealed to us. How would it be when we are looking more at people’s things; their sense, nonsense et al? We h…

Being in the zone

I was at it again! Yesterday only I had reminded myself that I would assert with conviction always and all ways. But lo! Here I was unable to put my point across when it was needed. Of course, it was not a question of life and death where I was expected to put my foot down lest I shouldn’t have been writing this! It was just a routine matter but yes, every moment, which helps boost our confidence must count. After all, no Tendulkar can lower his guard even for one ball. His alacrity and alertness, balls after balls, take him into the zone where he rules the roost. It’s a ball, a moment. Both small. Small things indeed make a big difference. Being all alert and making the most of every moment can be a turning point while lowering guard even for a moment could be a breaking point. Lapse in concentration even for a second gets the best of the batsmen out. Each ball counts since together, these balls build innings. On the life’s field also, we need to play moment by moment. Cautiously. Eve…

Best among the best

A bagful of diamonds! Their radiance is amazing. You don’t know which one to choose, as each is no less bright and beautiful. The right choice is tough. It gets tougher when it’s about choosing best among the best. Of course, not often do we encounter such a situation but when we do, we would be lost. Similarly, it’s a rarity to have our mind full of great thoughts. When it happens, how do we select best among the best? Sometimes, yes only sometimes, everything around appears nice. It is indeed a tough ask to choose nicer among the nicest or prioritise. What do you do? Perhaps, random and blind pick-and-choose helps. Don’t think; just pick up any diamond from the bag. When the mind is overflowing with meaningful thoughts, close your eyes, go blank and hold on to any of them. Trust it and rest assured. There may be many roads leading to the same destination yet we have to choose one. That done, move full throttle backing your instincts and you won’t lose direction. You will reach your …
