“The definition of success"
"To laugh often and much;
  • To win the respect of intelligent persons and the affection of children;
  • To earn the approbation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends;
  • To appreciate beauty; to find the best in others; to give one’s self;
  • To leave the world a little better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch, or a redeemed social condition;
  • To have played and laughed with enthusiasm, and sung with exultation;
  • To know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived.
  • This is to have succeeded."
  • - Ralph Waldo Emerson

    MIND IS....
    Whatever we see in this world is per the condition of our mind.if one is happy inside he/she used to be happy externally too.

    'If,i am in a happy state of mind the entire world seems to me or appears to me a wonderfull place to live in and enjoy .'

    Who ever is capable of tunning up his/her mind in a state of Balance/Equliberium can always have a 'High Quality of Living' right here and now....For these people who tunned very well within, can manage any worst or the best- external/internal clouds of change and maintain a great stream of consistency in their thought process..these people are very much balanced,nothing can make them tensed up,stress(eu-stress),anger,irritated... or any of these negative traps of conditionings.

    'If, my mind is in sad state of conditioning the entire world seems to me or appears to me a 'Hell Place' to live in. where the life is full of miseries and sorrows,no quality of living is seems to be attainable or may be rare to attain.'

    So...each one among us carry a unique faculty called the 'mind' which will, all the time fluctuates from here to there like a pendulum in the has to go on and one enjoys it (accept it) or not!! many times life goes 'un-aware'. we simply pass time,and life may go's on and on, in the absence of our awareness..(The un-consciousness living)

    Bring Great Awareness Unto Your Being...
    Let Us Lead Our Life With Full of Fun and Adventure...
    Let Us Really Celeberate each and every moments.
    Let it Go Forever..

    More than any other skill, the ability to read and read well allows a child to succeed in school, learn about the world, and to function in society. Children who learn to love books will be children who grow up to be good readers. The very best time for children to learn to love books is while they are young. Keep a supply of books and other reading materials where children can reach them. Add new books as children's skills and interests change.

    When children become good readers in the early grades, they are far more likely to become better learners throughout their school years and beyond. Read to your children every day, Spend time talking about stories, pictures, and words. Read with expression. And choose books your children will enjoy! Create happy, warm, enjoyable times so children look forward to books and reading with enjoyment and interest. Continue to read with your children each and every day.
    There are hundreds of "new" books that your children will enjoy - available at book stores and at your local library. Continue to provide familiar books and new books to keep reading enjoyable and interesting. Help children understand what they are reading.
    Good readers think as they read and they know whether what they are reading is making sense. Help children to check their understanding. When children are having difficulty, show them ways to figure out the meaning of what they are reading. Teach the meanings of words, especially words that are important to understanding a book. Teach ways to learn the meaning of new words. Teach children how to use dictionaries to learn word meanings. Build reading comprehension. Talk with children about what they are reading. Ask about new words. Talk about what happened in the story. Ask about the characters, places, and events that took place. Ask what new information he or she has learned form the book. Build reading accuracy.
    As each child reads aloud, point out words he or she missed and help him or her to read the words correctly. If you stop to focus on a word, have a child reread the whole sentence to be sure he or she understands the meaning. To encourage and develop good reading skills to last throughout a lifetime, means that parents must be diligent about finding the best children’s books available and taking the time to read to their children.
    Many of the most popular children’s books are often referred to as classic children’s books and with very good reason. While watching the news the other day after the debate and they did a story on reading to children. They had video of Barbara Bush reading to a class of elementary students.

    Happiness does not consist in pastimes and
    amusements but in virtuous activities.
    - Aristotle
    Count Your Blessings
    I've never made a fortune,
    and it's probably too late now.
    But I don't worry about that much,
    I'm happy anyhow.
    And as I go along life's way,
    I'm reaping better than I sowed.
    I'm drinking from my saucer,
    'Cause my cup has overflowed.
    I remember times when things went wrong,
    My faith wore some what thin.
    But all at once the dark clouds broke,
    and the sun peeped through again.
    And may I never be too busy,
    to help others bear their loads.
    When I think of how many people in this world
    have it worse than I do.
    I realize just how blessed most of us really are.

    A Good Vocabulary Is Vital

    Increase your word power.
    • A good vocabulary is an asset. If the speakers have limited vocabulary then they will adhere to repetition.
    • Naturally using the same words several times bores the listener.
    • Also keep your vocabulary reasonably simple.
    • Avoid the following phrases, which are usually repeated. You see, OK, You follow, you know what I mean, I see, Yes yes and much more.
    • Use the alternative words. Say for example,

    (1)Rural area: mufussil, countryside, region far away from cities and towns.

    (2)Best: Finest, super, excellent, grand.

    While concluding a speech use good and soft vocabulary. Avoid telling,

    • “The time given to me is very less. Otherwise I would have explained the subject in detail”
    • "Even I don’t have time to give – brief summary of the main points.”


    Stop all our judging / gauging of the other person with our prejudice/negative condition of the mind. Just De-Condition and Start loving every one around you.Create a 'Aura/Love field' around you.That's it,life is very simple.Do not complicate it unnessarily.LOVE is all and LOVE all.

    Use what talent you possess: -
    " The woods would be very silent if no birds sang
    except those that sang best. "
    - Henry Van Dyke

    "Live each day to the fullest."
    - S. H. Payer
    'Get the most from each hour, each day,and each age of your life.
    Then you can look forward with confidence,and back without regrets.'
    • Be yourself - but be your best self.
    • Dare to be different and to follow your own star. And don't be afraid to be happy.
    • Enjoy what is beautiful.
    • Love with all your heart and soul. Believe that those you love, love you.
    • When you are faced with decisions, make that decision as wisely as possible - then forget it.
    • The moment of absolute certainty never arrives.
    • And above all else, remember that God/Existance helps those who help themselves.
    • Act as if everything depended upon you,and pray as if everything depended upon Nature/God.

    I believe
    that we don't have to change friends
    if we understand that friends change.

    I believe-
    that no matter how good a friend is,
    they're going to hurt you every
    once in a while and you must forgive
    them for that.
    I believe-
    that true friendship continues to grow,
    even over the longest distance.
    Same goes for true love.
    I believe-
    that you can do something in an instant
    that will give you heartache for life.
    I believe-
    that it's taking me a long time
    to become the person I want to be.
    I believe-
    that you should always leave loved ones
    with loving words.
    It may be the last time you see them.
    I believe-
    that you can keep going
    long after you can't.
    I believe-
    that we are responsible for what we do,
    no matter how we feel.
    I believe-
    that either you control your attitude
    or it controls you.
    I believe-
    that regardless of how hot and
    steamy a relationship is at first,
    the passion fades and there had
    better be something else to take
    its place.
    I believe-
    that heroes are the people
    who do what has to be done
    when it needs to be done,
    regardless of the consequences.
    I believe-
    that money is a lousy way of keeping score.
    I believe-
    that my best friend
    and I can do anything
    or nothing and have the best time.
    I believe-
    that sometimes the people you expect to kick you
    when you're down,will be the ones to help you get back up.
    I believe-
    that sometimes when I'm angry
    I have the right to be angry,
    but that doesn't give me the right to be cruel.
    I believe-
    that just because someone doesn't love
    you the way you want them to doesn't
    mean they don't love you with all they have.
    I believe-
    that maturity has more to do with
    what types of experiences you've had
    and what you've learned from them and less to do with
    how many birthdays you've celebrated.
    I believe-
    that it isn't always enough to before
    given by others.
    Sometimes you have to learn to forgive yourself.
    I believe-
    that no matter how bad your heart is broken
    the world doesn't stop for your grief.
    I believe-
    that our background and circumstances
    may have influenced who we are,
    but we are responsible for who we become.
    I believe-
    that just because two people argue,
    it doesn't mean they don't love each other
    And just because they don't argue,
    It doesn't mean they do.
    I believe-
    that you shouldn't be so eager to find out asecret
    It could change your life forever.
    I believe-
    that two people can look at the exact
    same thing and see something totally different.
    I believe-
    that your life can be changed in a matter of
    hours by people who don't even know you.
    I believe-
    that even when you think you have no more
    to give, when a friend cries out to you
    you will find the strength to help.
    I believe-
    that credentials on the wall do not make
    you a decent human being.
    I believe-
    that the people you care about most in life
    are taken from you too soon

    Nature does nothing uselessly.
    - Aristotle

    I know a lot of people feel really uncomfortable when people stare at them, but it doesn't bother me so much. I guess I assume people are just friendly and curious.

    Personally, I'm always curious about the people around and I know I would stare at others more if it wasn't "against the rules". In Asia, it's not culturally impolite to stare and as a white person, people really do tend to stare at you. I know that a lot of travelers find it very offensive, but in Nepal, I learnt that the best thing to do was to stare back at the person staring at you. The results were amazing. Sometimes it would take a full 10 seconds or more of staring and smiling but eventually the other person would start to smile and you felt a real connection. Actually it's really amazing what you can say with your eyes alone.
    For instance have you ever wondered what happens if you do break the eye contact rules?One day in Stockholm, I was feeling so lonely that I decided to find out. It was a pretty funny experience. I was on the train about eight minutes from my station, and opposite me sat a young guy about the same age as me. So I looked at him and when he looked back at me I didn't do what was expected - I just keep looking, and of course smiling. Well, what happened? After a short time, it occurred to me that he thought I was "checking him out". Oops, so that's what happens if you break this rule. The last few minutes to my station were a little uncomfortable and I couldn't get off that train fast enough! So wherever you go in the world you can say a lot without even opening your mouth.
    The problem is that sometimes what you are saying with your eyes depends on where in the world you are. One thing is for sure though, wherever in the world you end up, a friendly look and a smile can open doors.

    So I challenge you to go out there and let your eyes do the talking!
