Complain-o-Meter


How  much do we complain in a day?

From the time we wake up. Supposedly, if we are late for work or a commitment, what is our first reaction ? Lemme guess , " Oh Damn !", "Oh God !", or the all timer " Oh Sh#t !".

Now let me ask you another Question. Immediately after you react, what feelings do you feel? I doubt "Happy" is one of them. It is usually, Anger, Frustration or just Plainly being upset. Whatever it is, Its not Postive.

Now I'll tell you something I heard, " What you Focus on EXPANDS ".

So, when we grumble or complain about something or someone, were actually asking for trouble. Why would you want more of what you dont want. Sounds like a Googly, but Believe you me, successful & happy people, dont complain, blame or justify either.

So if we want to be or atleast feel Happy & Successful, all we need to start with is Abstinence from the same. Are you up for this Challenge?

I DARE you to NOT Complain or Blame for the Next 7 days. And if you do, rectify your complain into an observation. Let me give you an example right here,

Lets say, you asked a friend to pick you up for a 3pm movie. And for an unknown reason he is late and picks you up at 2 : 55. There could be 2 scenarios namely,

a. You shout at him and grumble about how late he was and that you would miss the start of the movie because of him  (Blame). You would feel Anger and Frustration, which again as a reminder, are not Positive Feelings.

Or Another way to react would be

b. You either accept in your mind that he is late, no problem, whats the worst that could happen, you would miss a few minutes of the start. You make an Observation to him, ask him if everything is alright. Find out why he was late.

Now You tell me, in which scenario, would you ENJOY that movie?

Well it doesnt take Rocket Science to figure that out.

"7 days - NO COMPLAINING, NO BLAMING".

Let me know how it works for you in time to come.

To Happiness !

  2. Complaining is something we all do so easily. I think we need to cultivate a habit of being grateful and see how much each one of us has been blessed :)

Think Again…

Firstly, I appreciate you taking out your precious time to read my very first blog.

It has always been a Dream to write my thoughts and share them with everyone. Finally after few years of procrastination , here it is.

if your wondering,.. why “Think Again”, …. I’ll explain..

But first you need to ask yourself one question..

Do you BELIEVE that you can be, do or have anything you want in Life ?..

I know it’s a heavy question for starters, but an important life-altering one.

When we are young ,not only are we innocent and playful,but were also Believers…
Ask a 5 year old his dreams,, and you’ll automatically know where his Beliefs lie.. am I right or am I right?..

Children are born innocent unaffected by the reality checks of Life… They smile like they don’t understand frowning,, play like the world is their playground and dance like they’ve won “Who wants to be a MIllionnaire”….

Well.. Guess what,..... WE come from the same origin!..... but... whats changed?...

If your with me, nod your head…

Autograph Please ?

Have you ever tried looking at your Life from a third person's perspective. Or let me rephrase, have you looked at your Life like you are watching a Movie?. Take a moment to first grasp the idea of watching YOUR Movie. Newly suggested thoughts take a while to digest.

Now that your visualise your life as a Movie, the million dollar question is, Who are YOU in the Movie ?

Hold on to that thought.

Now generally when you want to go see a Movie, you expect something out of it whether its comedy, romance, action or thriller your looking for. You want to ENJOY the experience and leave the Cinema with a feel good feeling ! But it takes two to clap and depends on how everyone brings it to the table.

In Life, you are the Director, Producer, Script Writer & Lead. What kind of a Movie would you like to watch of YOUR life ?

All you got to do is write your Life's Script, direct your Actions based on what you have written and Produce the Results you want to see . You are the Actor. You A…

Loving "YOU"

“I don't like myself, I'm crazy about myself”

How often do we say things like this to ourselves. As a matter of fact how often do we even talk to ourselves ? Have you ever tried it or do you laugh at the very thought of it ?

"Talk to myself? !!!, What am I Stupid ? !! "

Confession time - I Talk to myself. Am I stupid ? Noways. I love spending time with MYSELF. Generally, people are always surrounded by others through relationships or circumstances. Whether its Home or Office, you are rarely alone ; even if your a social outcast. So what am I trying to get at here is to ask yourself, how much time do you spend with the one you should love the most, YOURSELF ? Or are you looking for that Love and Approval from someone else ?

Every now and then I take a walk at the Race Course, to consciously spend time with "me".  And trust me, not only do you hear your thoughts more clearly but you also have these awesome breakthrough ideas . How can you even expect someone…
