Trust Yourself

The other day, I went to my bank to withdraw some cash from the ATM.

Two out of three ATMs bore a notice-“This machine is out of order.” I decided to check if the notice was true.  It wasn’t!

The machine was working perfectly and I withdrew cash.

Trust is a divine quality. But trusting and following something or someone mindlessly aren’t the same.

Many times people will tell you something that’s not true. They do so because they have their own vested interests. They might be misleading you or trying to fool you.

 If you feel that something is wrong, you may be right. Go ahead and check it out for yourself.

Sometimes it’s good to trust no one but yourself.

Save Water

The other day when I was washing hands after eating my meal, the water reminded of my grandmother– a noble and virtuous lady.

Whenever I accompanied her to the fields (my grandfather was a farmer) and asked for water, she used to say “We’re far away from human dwellings, and here, water is scarce, you must use it wisely. Don’t waste even a single drop. Every drop is precious.”

I feel bad when I see people wasting water. They leave the tap running, wash their cars and bikes with drinking water, let the water overflow from water tanks—they take it for granted.

Earlier, water was scarce in some places only, but nowadays, clean drinking water is becoming scarce almost everywhere.

The situation is really serious, and if we don’t act today, there’ll be no water left for tomorrow.

Get Dissatisfied. Get Motivated!

  

By Avdhessh Arya

 

No motivation, no matter how trusted and honorable source is it coming from, can help make your dreams come true,  unless you are self-motivated.

All motivation is self-motivation in disguise.  It’s like your higher self speaking to you through  some outside source. It’s a mysterious and beautiful phenomena.

And it’s taking place every single day in your life. But you’ll be able to understand it fully only, if you are self-motivated.

Self-motivation happens to you naturally when you become deeply dis-satisfied with your current circumstances.

When you see your face in the mirror every morning and feel disgusted, because you know in your heart that this is not the kind of life you were born to live.

When you realize that the kind of relationships you are in, the kind of people you are spending time with everyday are not the ‘right ones.’

When you get dissatisfied as hell, and desperately want to start your life afresh.

 Until that happens to you, all wise words fall on deaf ears.

How to Accept Yourself

By Avdhessh Arya

 

One of the most futile things you can ever do to yourself is to indulge in personality analysis- finding out what kind of person you are.

Let’s say you are an introvert.  That’s cool…that’s OK!

What’s wrong in being an introvert? And for that matter, what’s wrong in being an extrovert?

Nothing!

I have seen many of my introvert students trying too hard to turn themselves into extroverts, and vice versa.

It appears that nobody is happy with what he or she is.  People have been conditioned to believe that they are not good as they are. In order to prove that they are good, they need to get other’s approval, and for that, they need to polish themselves, refine themselves.

There’s nothing wrong in polishing and refining yourself as long as you feel good about it, and do it for yourself.  When you do it to please others, it becomes poisonous.

When you live by others’ standards, you lose your originality. You lose your ‘voice’. And if you really want to grow as an individual, you simply can’t afford that.

Be Patient

The other day, I had a hard time cleaning a pan with remains of noodles in it. The noodles had dried up, I tried hard for some time, then poured some water in the pan and kept it aside.

The water helped the dried up remains get loosen up, and the pan got cleaned easily.

While pouring water in the pan, it occurred to me that life is no different.

Whenever there’s something remaining back, which we don’t like, we immediately try to clean that up. And guess what, we almost, always, face a hard time, because things have dried up.

It need not be like that, at least not every time.

You can make the process easy and much more effective. All you need to do is pour some water (patience)

Most of the times, patience is what you need to clean the mess.

You see, patience is not at all necessary. It is just an option, but certainly a better one.

When things are going wrong, stop trying hard. It will only make things worse.

Bring in some patience instead, and who knows, you might amaze yourself.
