DREAM BIG: The first principle of the 5 principles of a successful life is ‘Dream Big’. Walt Disney quoted, ‘If you can dream it, you can do it.’ It is important for us to dream big, no matter at what age we are. Dreams keep us hopeful and our energy focused on our future. One must set sub-goals with a time frame to convert their dream into reality. Find a picture of your dream and allow it to pursue your dream. The picture of your dream will motivate you always. 2.

Mysteries behind Holi and important Life lessons

In Hindi, we say " Bura Na Mano Holi Hai" while celebrating Holi. This means please do not feel sad because it's Holi". It's an Indian version of La Tomatina with the only difference that Indians use colors instead of crushed tomatoes. Obviously, Holi is a time to become exuberant but we must also learn some life lessons from Holi. This a time when caste, creed, and color doesn't divide people. People from different walks of life enjoy Holi together and this is a time when enemies become friends. There are also many mysterious stories behind the Holi festival which have some greatest lessons for us. Let us try to understand and inculcate those lessons in our lives. Lesson 1: Never Boast of your resources: Hiranyakashyap was a king in ancient India who was just like a demon. He wants to take revenge for his brother's death from Lord Vishnu. Once Hiranyakashyap performed a prayer for several years. In the end, he was granted a boon and because of w

Corporate lessons from the life of Sh. Manohar Parrikar

Born in Goa on 13 Dec 1955, Mr. Parrikar had done Engineering from IIT Bombay and he was a batchmate of Mr. Nandan Nilekani. He entered politics to uplift the downtrodden common man. Below are the life-changing lessons from the life of Mr. Manohar Parrikar. 1. Duty is always first: In 1999 he lost his wife Medha who died because of cancer. Just after 1 month, he had taken oath as the first BJP CM of Goa. Let's read the realization of Dr. Jagannath (Doctor who treated Sh Parrikar): He was never out of touch with the af­fairs of the state. In spite of being in the hospital, he ran a full day of office work with his staff in the hospital. When I went to New York to meet him, I saw a similar arrangement of his getting information and passing the necessary instructions back to Goa. Many times we used to take leaves from the office by giving lame excuses like I had pain in my hand, head, etc. Here is an example of a man who is lying on his deathbed but still fulfilling his duties.

The Importance of Setting Clear Goals

It's good that we have dreams, goals, and desire but we must think twice before setting up any goal in our life. If you ever been on a long route without proper GPS or a map then it might have turned out to be a good adventure but you might have taken a long time to reach the destination. It's important to focus on your goal instead of focussing on the problem. This can be understood by following analogy " when you focus on your problem then you lose your goal but when you focus on your goal then you lose your problem". Many people used to left their job when their bosses scold them, but they must not change their goal but they must change their strategy. We cannot play football without a goal, a ship that has no rudder cannot go anywhere and hence a professional without any goal cannot go anywhere. No goal means no direction. There is also a very famous shloka in Bhagwad Gita where Krsna has spoken about Goal setting: vyavasayatmika buddhir ekeha kuru-
