प्रयास करने वाले को सफलता मिलती है

प्रयास करते रहो… 
कभी निराश मत होना… 
क्या पता जहाँ से तुम लौट आये थे, 
मंजिल कुछ कदम ही दूर रही हो…

प्रयास करने वाले को सफलता मिलती है…. ये ज्ञान नहीं सच्चाई है….

Knowledge and wisdom

There is a difference between knowledge and wisdom.

Knowledge is knowing that a tomato is a fruit not a vegetable.

Wisdom is knowing not to include it in a fruit salad.

A peaceful mind can think better than a worked up mind

There once was a farmer who discovered that he had lost his watch in the barn. It was no ordinary watch because it had sentimental value for him.

After searching high and low among the hay for a long while; he gave up and enlisted the help of a group of children playing outside the barn.

He promised them that the person who found it would be rewarded.

Hearing this, the children hurried inside the barn, went through and around the entire stack of hay but still could not find the watch. Just when the farmer was about to give up looking for his watch, a little boy went up to him and asked to be given another chance.

The farmer looked at him and thought, “Why not? After all, this kid looks sincere enough.”

So the farmer sent the little boy back in the barn. After a while the little boy came out with the watch in his hand! The farmer was both happy and surprised and so he asked the boy how he succeeded where the rest had failed.

The boy replied, “I did nothing but sit on the ground and listen. In the silence, I heard the ticking of the watch and just looked for it in that direction.”

A peaceful mind can think better than a worked up mind. Allow a few minutes of silence to your mind every day, and see, how sharply it helps you to set your life the way you expect it to be!

How the poor live

One day, a father of a very wealthy family took his son on a trip to the country with the firm purpose of showing his son how poor people live. They spent a couple of days and nights on the farm of what would be considered a very poor family. On their return from their trip, the father asked his son, “How was the trip?”

“It was great, Dad.”

“Did you see how poor people live?” the father asked.

“Oh yeah,” said the son.

“So, tell me, what did you learn from the trip?” asked the father.

The son answered, “I saw that we have one dog and they had four. We have a pool that reaches to the middle of our garden, and they have a creek that has no end. We have imported lanterns in our garden, and they have the stars at night. Our patio reaches to the front yard, and they have the whole horizon. We have a small piece of land to live on, and they have fields that go beyond our sight. We have servants who serve us, but they serve others. We buy our food, but they grow theirs. We have walls around our property to protect us; they have friends to protect them.”

The boy’s father was speechless.

Then his son added, “Thanks, Dad, for showing me how poor we are.”

Peace of mind

Once Buddha was walking from one town to another town with a few of his followers. This was in the initial days. While they were travelling, they happened to pass a lake. They stopped there and Buddha told one of his disciples, “I am thirsty. Do get me some water from that lake there.”
mahatma Buddha

The disciple walked up to the lake. When he reached it, he noticed that some people were washing clothes in the water and, right at that moment, a bullock cart started crossing through the lake. As a result, the water became very muddy, very turbid. The disciple thought, “How can I give this muddy water to Buddha to drink!” So he came back and told Buddha, “The water in there is very muddy. I don’t think it is fit to drink.”

After about half an hour, again Buddha asked the same disciple to go back to the lake and get him some water to drink. The disciple obediently went back to the lake. This time he found that the lake had absolutely clear water in it. The mud had settled down and the water above it looked fit to be had. So he collected some water in a pot and brought it to Buddha.

Buddha looked at the water, and then he looked up at the disciple and said, “See what you did to make the water clean. You let it be ... and the mud settled down on its own – and you got clear water... Your mind is also like that. When it is disturbed, just let it be. Give it a little time. It will settle down on its own. You don’t have to put in any effort to calm it down. It will happen. It is effortless.”

What did Buddha emphasize here? He said, “It is effortless.” Having 'peace of mind' is not a strenuous job; it is an effortless process. When there is peace inside you, that peace permeates to the outside. It spreads around you and in the environment, such that people around start feeling that peace and grace.

The important things in life

A philosophy professor stood before his class with some items on the table in front of him. When the class began, wordlessly he picked up a very large and empty mayonnaise jar and proceeded to fill it with rocks, about 2 inches in diameter.

He then asked the students if the jar was full. They agreed that it was.

So the professor then picked up a box of pebbles and poured them into the jar. He shook the jar lightly. The pebbles, of course, rolled into the open areas between the rocks.

He then asked the students again if the jar was full. They agreed it was.

The professor picked up a box of sand and poured it into the jar. Of course, the sand filled up the remaining open areas of the jar.

He then asked once more if the jar was full. The students responded with a unanimous “Yes.”

“Now,” said the professor, “I want you to recognize that this jar represents your life. The rocks are the important things – your family, your partner, your health, your children – things that if everything else was lost and only they remained, your life would still be full. The pebbles are the other things that matter – like your job, your house, your car. The sand is everything else, the small stuff.”

“If you put the sand into the jar first,” he continued, “there is no room for the pebbles or the rocks. The same goes for your life. If you spend all your time and energy on the small stuff, you will never have room for the things that are important to you. Pay attention to the things that are critical to your happiness. Play with your children. Take your partner out dancing. There will always be time to go to work, clean the house, give a dinner party, or fix the disposal.”

“Take care of the rocks first – the things that really matter. Set your priorities. The rest is just sand.”

We See Things NOT The WAY They are BUT The WAY We ARE

There is a legend about a wise man who was sitting outside his village. A traveler came up and asked him, "What kind of people live in this village, because I am looking to move from my present one?" The wise man asked, "What kind of people live where you want to move from?" The man said, "They are mean, cruel, rude." The wise man replied, "The same kind of people live in this village too." After some time another traveler came by and asked the same question and the wise man asked him, "What kind of people live where you want to move from?" And the traveler replied, "The people are very kind, courteous, polite and good." The wise man said, "You will find the same kind of people here too."

we see things not the way they are But the way we are

What is the moral of the story?

Generally we see the world not the way it is but the way we are. Most of the time, other people's behavior is a reaction to our own.


One day, a ten-year-old boy went to an ice cream shop, sat at a table and asked the waitress, "How much is an ice-cream cone?" She said, "seventy-five cents." The boy started counting the coins he had in his hand. Then he asked how much a small cup of ice-cream was. The waitress impatiently replied, "sixty five cents." The boy said, "I will have the small ice-cream cup." He had his ice-cream, paid the bill and left. When the waitress came to pick up the empty plate, she was touched. Underneath were ten cent coins as tip.

The little boy had consideration for the waitress before he ordered his ice-cream. He showed sensitivity and caring. He thought of others before himself. If we all thought like the little boy, we would have a great place to live. Show consideration, courtesy, and politeness. Thoughtfulness shows a caring attitude.

लक्ष्य का होना ज़रूरी क्यों है:

१) सही दिशा में आगे बढ़ने के लिए: जब आप सुबह घर से निकलते हैं तो आपको पता होता है कि आपको कहाँ जाना है और आप वहां पहुँचते हैं , सोचिये अगर आपको यह नहीं पता हो कि आप को कहाँ जाना है तो भला आप क्या करेंगे? इधर उधर भटकने में ही समय व्यर्थ हो जायेगा. इसी तरह इस जीवन में भी यदि आपने अपने लिए लक्ष्य नहीं बनाये हैं तो आपकी ज़िन्दगी तो चलती रहेगी पर जब आप बाद में पीछे मुड़ कर देखेंगे तो शायद आपको पछतावा हो कि आपने कुछ खास achieve  नहीं किया!! लक्ष्य व्यक्ति को एक सही दिशा देता है. उसे बताता है कि कौन सा काम उसके लिए जरूरी है और कौन सा नहीं.  यदि goals clear हों तो हम उसके मुताबिक अपने आप को तैयार करते हैं. हमारा subconscious mind हमें उसी के अनुसार act करने के लिए प्रेरित करता है. दिमाग में लक्ष्य साफ़ हो तो उसे पाने के रास्ते भी साफ़ नज़र आने लगते हैं और इंसान उसी दिशा में अपने कदम बढा देता है.

२) अपनी उर्जा का सही उपयोग करने के लिए: भागवान ने इन्सान को सीमित उर्जा और सिमित  समय दिया है. इसलिए ज़रूरी हो जाता है कि हम इसका उपयोग सही तरीके से करें. लक्ष्य हमें ठीक यही करने को प्रेरित करता है. अगर आप अपने end-goal को ध्यान में रख कर कोई काम करते हैं तो उसमे आपका concentration और energy का  level कहीं अच्छा होता है.
For Example: जब आप किसी  library में बिना किसी खास किताब को पढने  के मकसद से जाते हैं तो आप यूँ ही  कुछ किताबों को उठाते हैं और उनके पन्ने पलटते हैं और कुछ एक पन्ने पढ़ डालते हैं, पर वहीँ अगर आप कसी Project Report को पूरा करने के मकसद से जाते हैं तो आप उसके मतलब कि ही किताबें चुनते हैं और अपना काम पूरा करते हैं. दोनों ही cases में आप समय उतना ही देते हैं पर आपकी  efficiency में जमीन-आसमान का फर्क होता है. इसी तरह life  में भी अगर हमारे सामने कोई निश्चित लक्ष्य नहीं है तो हम यूँ ही अपना  energy  waste करते रहेंगे और नतीजा कुछ खास नहीं निकलेगा. लेकिन इसके विपरीत जब हम लक्ष्य को ध्यान में रखेंगे तो हमारी energy सही जगह उपयोग होगी और हमें सही results देखने को मिलेंगे.

३) सफल होने के लिए: जिससे पूछिए वही कहता है कि मैं एक सफल व्यक्ति बनना चाहता.पर अगर ये पूछिए कि क्या हो जाने पर वह खुद को सफल व्यक्ति मानेगा तो इसका उत्तर कम ही लोग पूर विश्वास से दे पाएंगे. सबके लिए सफलता के मायने अलग-अलग होते हैं. और यह मायने लक्ष्य द्वारा ही निर्धारित होते हैं. तो यदि आपका कोई लक्ष्य नहीं है तो आप एक बार को औरों कि नज़र में सफल हो सकते हैं पर खुद कि नज़र में आप कैसे decide  करेंगे कि आप सफल हैं या नहीं?  इसके लिए आपको अपने द्वारा ही तय किये हुए लक्ष्य को देखना होगा.

४) अपने मन के विरोधाभाष को दूर करने के लिए:  हमारी life में कई opportunities  आती-जाति रहती हैं. कोई चाह कर भी सभी की सभी opportunities का फायदा नहीं उठा सकता. हमें अवसरों को कभी हाँ तो कभी ना करना होता है. ऐसे में ऐसी  परिस्थितियां आना स्वाभाविक है, जब हम decide  नहीं कर पाते कि हमें क्या  करना चाहिए. ऐसी situation  में आपका लक्ष्य आपको guide कर सकता है. 

दोस्तों  अर्नोल्ड एच ग्लासगो का कथन  ”फुटबाल कि तरह ज़िन्दगी में भी आप तब-तक आगे नहीं बढ़ सकते जब तक आपको अपने लक्ष्य का पता ना हो.”  तो यदि आपने अभी तक अपने लिए कोई लक्ष्य निर्धारित किया है तो इस दिशा में सोचना शुरू कीजिये.

Life is an opportunity

Life is an opportunity, benefit from it.
Life is beauty, admire it.
Life is a dream, realize it.
Life is a challenge, meet it.
Life is a duty, complete it.
Life is a game, play it.
Life is a promise, fulfill it.
Life is sorrow, overcome it.
Life is a song, sing it.
Life is a struggle, accept it.
Life is a tragedy, confront it.
Life is an adventure, dare it.
Life is luck, make it.
Life is too precious, do not destroy it.
Life is Life, fight for it.” ― Mother Teresa

Famous Quotes On Life

"Eleven Hints for Life"

1. It hurts to love someone and not be loved in return.
But what is more painful is to love someone and never
find the courage to let that person know how you feel.

2. A sad thing in life is when you meet someone who
means a lot to you, only to find out in the end that it was
never meant to be and you just have to let go.

3. The best kind of friend is the kind you can sit on a
porch swing with, never say a word, and then walk away
feeling like it was the best conversation you've ever had.

4. It's true that we don't know what we've got until we lose
it, but it's also true that we don't know what we've been
missing until it arrives.

5. It takes only a minute to get a crush on someone, an
hour to like someone, and a day to love someone-but it
takes a lifetime to forget someone.

6. Don't go for looks, they can deceive. Don't go for wealth,
even that fades away. Go for someone who makes you
smile because it takes only a smile to make a dark day
seem bright.

7. Dream what you want to dream, go where you want to go,
be what you want to be. Because you have only one life and
one chance to do all the things you want to do.

8. Always put yourself in the other's shoes. If you feel that it
hurts you, it probably hurts the person too.

9. A careless word may kindle strife. A cruel word may wreck
a life. A timely word may level stress. But a loving word may
heal and bless.

10. The happiest of people don't necessarily have the best
of everything they just make the most of everything that comes
along their way.

11. Love begins with a smile, grows with a kiss, ends with
a tear. When you were born, you were crying and everyone
around you was smiling. Live your life so that when you die,
you're the one smiling and everyone around you is crying.
