Positive aspects of Lockdown

IntroductionWe all are stuck at our houses and waiting for two things a) completion of lockdown, b) vaccine of Coronavirus. But most of us are consuming non-stop news bulletins and counting the Worldwide death toll of the Corona Virus. Researchers have found that stress has a psychosomatic impact on us. We are consuming so many negative things throughout the day and hoping for a positive outcome but it's impossible. The capacity of our mind is very high as compared to our body. We need to keep ourselves positive in these difficult days. It is a fact that negative thinking reduces our immunity and positive thinking boosts our immunity. Corona will definitely go within one or two months' timespan but just think what we will tell our future generations. Do we tell them that we were in depression during Corona Scare ? or we will tell that we emanated positivity and motivated our family members to fight Corona during the lockdown. We have to understand that Corona Virus cannot come…

When Isaac Newton had to work from home

Just one month back when someone has told us that work from home is our future then we all might have laughed at him. Employees working in non-IT companies must not have imagined such a situation. This is the major change Novel Coronavirus has brought in our life and it clearly ushered a culture of work from home. Suddenly remote work opportunities started mushrooming and employers have understood that work from home is a better option and it can result in huge cost savings for the organizations. Call centre employees already started work from home just after few days of lockdown. As the government decided to go with complete lockdown to flatten the curve, people are spending maximum time on social media and failed to maintain a work-life balance. We have come up with an inspirational story of Sir Isaac Newton who had taken maximum benefit of lockdown in his lifetime.

Both of them spent one night at the farm of a poor farmer. After spending that night, both of them came back to their home.

Life will definitely throw lemons at you but it depends upon you how you react. The …

Arnold Schwarzenegger: 5 Rules for Success Part 1

On 2001 August 22, the US National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) released photographs of Spiral Galaxy NGC 3079 which is 50 million light-years away towards the constellation of Ursa Major. The photo was taken from Hubble Space Telescope and it revealed gas towers of 2000 light-years with a swirling cosmic cauldron of activity at the galaxy's center. Measurements show that the gaseous pillars are beaming away from the center at 6 million Kilometers per hour and eventually looking like an expanding bubble that is on the verge of bursting. This phenomenon is happening at a very incredible scale. Researchers also show that when this bubble will burst then several new stars and planets will form. Our own sun was also born out of such cosmic drama, as was our earth. We can correlate this event with our life also, whenever our life reverberates with failures then we must extrapolate that something big is coming and success is imminent. Arnold Schwarzenegger, Mr. Universe (…

Best Motivational story of Michael Jordan

Migratory birds used to travel from 5000 to 7000 km to sustain their lives. In India, Siberian birds used to come in the month of December and stay there for more than three months. These birds used to come from Siberia but this long journey is not very easy. During winters Siberian birds have two options, first is to live in Siberia and die while tackling extreme temperatures in the range of -40 to -50 degree celsius or to travel to relatively warm areas like India. This is just like a process of change we also face in our lives. Change is never easy and we have a tendency to enjoy the status quo. But the status quo is very harmful and never benefits us. Siberian birds decide to travel 5000 to 7000 Kms and start preparing 3-4 months before the winters by subsequently increasing fat in their bodies. They face very harsh conditions like extreme temperatures of dessert area, starving, hunting, etc during their journey. But it's a matter of life or death for these birds hence they de…
