Sufferings:blessings in disguise,aren't they?


The messages or lessons hidden in quotes, are many a times difficult to be implemented practically and its like they are "Easier said than done".

Here is one for example:

  • We must embrace pain and burn it as fuel for our journey. --Kenji Miyazawa

I mean when you are going through a bad phase how will you have the resources to get up and embrace pain let alone going a step ahead and using it as fuel for your journey:your life? 

But it is true!!Yes it is...Sufferings shoot up your will-power to show you what you are truly capable of,everybody has the desire to live their life in the best possible manner but at one point we tend to reach that best possible way and continue from thereon at the same level without trying to achieve more..Sufferings do the job of making us aware of our lives,our relationships and many more things which have gone unnoticed so far.Once we overcome the so called bad phase we will have evolved into a stronger,a mature,a better person.





Yes;sometimes it is a painful experience which makes us a better person and takes us closer to our objective in life.

So friends the next time you encounter an unexpected twist in your life remember the following:

  • A bend in the road is not the end of the road... unless you fail to make the turn.--Anonymous

  • I ask not for a lighter burden, but for broader shoulders.--Jewish Proverb

  • The difficulties of life are intended to make us better, not bitter. --Anonymous

  • Be master of your petty annoyances and conserve your energies for the big, worthwhile things.--Robert Service

Mangalyaan...


Hmm...saw some news about India's latest space mission to Mars,after Chandrayaan which was launched some time ago!

Sriharikota, Andhra Pradesh: India today successfully launched Mangalyaan to Mars, a 450-crore mission that has been in the making for over 15 months with over 500 scientists working on it.
(source ndtv.com)
This brought memories of a great space scientist and an ex-president,a man so down-to-earth in his mannerisms and messages that it makes me wonder :Is it so easy to be humble even after gaining so much success?
Yes,I am speaking about Dr.APJ Abdul Kalam. Some of his quotes below exemplify his simple living,high thinking nature:



  • Dream, Dream Dream,Dreams transform into thoughts,And thoughts result in action.
  • For great men, religion is a way of making friends; small people make religion a fighting tool. 
  • It Is Very Easy To Defeat Someone, But It Is Very Hard To Win Someone 
  • Dream is not that which you see while sleeping it is something that does not let you sleep. 
  • Don't take rest after your first victory because if you fail in second, more lips are waiting to say that your first victory was just luck. 
  • Thinking is the capital, Enterprise is the way, Hard Work is the solution
  • Suffering is the essence of success!!! 
  • Learning gives creativity.Creativity leads to thinking.Thinking provides knowledge.Knowledge makes you great. 
  • When learning is purposeful, creativity blossoms. When creativity blossoms, thinking emanates. When thinking emanates, knowledge is fully lit. When knowledge is lit, economy flourishes.
  • All Birds find shelter during a rain.But Eagle avoids rain by flying above the Clouds.Problems are common, but attitude makes the difference!!! 
  • Once your mind stretches to a new level it never goes back to its original dimension 





And these two for all my fellow-engineers-in-the-making :P



Marks are important though!!

Habits..they define us!


Well friends you must have always wanted to change some or the other habit of yours which you knew wasn't helping you in any way.Or some other which you felt,why not include in your behavior,but kept postponing for want of some internal motivation?

Habits are a set of behavioral patterns that you repeat almost subconsciously until you observe their effect on your lives.Well,why do our parents stop us from doing certain things in our childhood or even when we grow..because if they don't,we might end up being slaves of our habits in the future..It is important therefore to choose which habits we want and eliminate the rest as soon as possible.
I myself for example,keep procrastinating all the time and now I'm like how do I get rid of this? 

So friends,do keep your habits in check and here are some quotes on habits:

  • We are, all of us, creatures of habit, and when the seeming necessity for schooling ourselves in new ways ceases to exist, we fall naturally and easily into the manner and customs which long usage has implanted ineradicably within us.--Edgar Rice Burroughs


        


       


  • You can’t change your future. But, you can change your habits, and surely your habits will change your future.-- APJ Abdul Kalam

  • The chains of habit are generally too small to be felt until they are too strong to be broken.--Samuel Johnson

  • Men's natures are alike; it is their habits that separate them. --Confucius


  • Habits are at first cobwebs, then cables.--Spanish Proverb

  • Whatever you habitually think yourself to be, that you are. You must form, now, a greater and better habit; you must form a conception of yourself as a being of limitless power, and habitually think that you are that being. It is the habitual, not the periodical thought that decides your destiny.--Wallace D Wattles

:)

Nowadays,I find a lot of news about some experts pondering over the imminent economic scenario and the headlines reading:

Inflation is likely to remain elevated despite sluggish growth....onion prices hiked....petrol prices cut but that of diesel soar....and so on.

This resulted in a question in my mind? Well what do we afford in today's world? What is the thing that truly costs nothing and ought not to even in the future?

The answer I thought :)

I express my apologies for drifting from such a serious discussion to something as trifle as a.......
Smile.

Yes smile! Although a simple form of expressing warmth and joy it has become less common recently. A smile can have a positive effect upon our interactions with anybody no matter who he/she is.
Well regarding the solutions to the above problems: Let those who are good at it take the decisions and side-by-side let us also think over what we can do to reduce inflation.


Enjoy : )


  


  • A Smile is a curve that sets everything straight--Phyliss Diller

  • It only takes a split second to smile and forget, yet to someone that needed it, it can last a lifetime. We should all smile more often. --Steve Maraboli



  • Sometimes your joy is the source of your smile, but sometimes your smile can be the source of your joy.--Thích Nhất Hạnh 

  • It takes a lot of energy to be negative. You have to work at it. But smiling is painless. I’d rather spend my energy smiling.--Eric Davis (former MLB star and cancer survivor )

  • A smile is the light in your window that tells others that there is a caring, sharing person inside.--Deni Waitley

  • Peace begins with a smile.--Mother Teresa

I don't know whom to thank for the following quotes:

  • A smile costs nothing but gives much. It enriches those who receive without making poorer those who give. It takes but a moment, but the memory of it sometimes lasts forever. None is so rich or mighty that he cannot get along without it and none is so poor that he cannot be made rich by it. Yet a smile cannot be bought, begged, borrowed, or stolen, for it is something that is of no value to anyone until it is given away. Some people are too tired to give you a smile. Give them one of yours, as none needs a smile so much as he who has no more to give.

  • It takes a lot of work from the face to let out a smile, but just think what good smiling can bring to the most important muscle of the body... the heart.

  • Smile, it lets your teeth breathe.

You must have heard this one before:
  • It takes seventeen muscles to smile and forty-three to frown. 

And the last one:

Support can do wonders!


There are times in life when we are so happy with ourselves and our life that we overlook the needs of others.On the contrary,when as a matter of fact adversity tests us we realize the importance of support,from our near and dear ones,from all those who are strong enough to provide us with the same.

Support is a great thing I believe.When you are sad,feeling lonely and then someone comes,cheers you up,gives you a shoulder to rest upon or at least sympathizes with you,doesn't it boost you up?

In sports,they have a group of people called Support Staff who look upon the needs of the sport-persons and keep them all set to perform to their potential.This support staff is everywhere sometimes subtle and sometimes conspicuous.    

So friends,value your support system and yes do help others as long as you are in a position to do so,who knows what lies in the future?

Few quotes depicting the importance of support:


  • No man is an island--John Donne


  • Was it you or I who stumbled first? It does not matter. The one of us who finds the strength to get up first, must help the other.--Vera Nazarian

  • A dwarf standing on the shoulders of a giant may see farther than a giant himself. --Robert Burton


  • No one is useless in this world who lightens the burdens of another. --Charles Dickens
