Killing Authenticity

Standard

nothing to think, create, or learn without internet.

With growing technological advancement and the information explosion, people lack originality in their thoughts views and opinions, its embellished with the facts that we already know and there’s a need for good leaders who can lead with their heart, it is all because of

1. So much information explosion where every bit of knowledge is available at the ease of a click , hence there seems to be no originality in opinions and ideas that people can come up with moreover it hampers innovation.
2. People find the greatest NEED FOR APPROVAL which can only come through doing what the others want , and saying what others wish to listen, therefore authenticity is ruled out.
3. Fear of failure leads to following the old tracks and doing what is accepted and accompanies minimum risks.
4. We tend to believe what we are fed with , the information we receive and retain from the media, internet, books etc remains embedded in our heads , and hampers the creation of something new or novel.
5. No longer we go out in the dirt, in streets, in parks or neighborhood  because only exploring things hands on, in the nature can make us understand its different angles that can generate creativity.
6. having greater access to the right information stagnates the scope to try for new information or even come up with wrong marination that lead to the right information through trial and error process. but the internet has diminished the scope of even this approach where one could learn form mistakes and failures.
To overcome this and to fuel authenticity among the people,  we can create space and scope for people to be more authentic only if we Learn to ACCEPT all the move’s one makes , even if it leads to failure or success , it must be accepted and appreciated.
Once everyone accepts everyone there will be great leaders who are more authentic and lead with their heart.

 

Explore: Your Creative Best !

Nurture creativity among you and the young ones, to reap the fruits of success

 

Its really hard to find what is best in us because there are so many opportunities that we may get to work for in life and many that we dont even know about their existence. In such events it becomes necessary to experience as many thin gs in life so that we may get to know and see what we are best in doing.

I may not know if i were good in gymnastics or ballet dance or playing piano or a guitar, because  i did not get the opportunity to try and experience them so far.

And this is why i feel that every child during his/her childhood should be given ample scope to try each and every sports , creative activities, technology, spirituality, and many other fores of life where if it is possible for parents they should try every endeavor to let their kids discover their true talents and where their creativity holds.

There might be many reasons where some kids may not be able to get such opportunities to explore their creative potentials in such circumstances the best thing you can give a child is “freedom”of, choice where he /she can choose the activity , hobby, interest that they like the most doing . This will nurture self reliance and confidence among them for even getting a choice, where they can transform their habit, interests into their passion and lead to innovation or developing their creative best talent.

For Kids it is as much important as academics and care for their development. But there is no age bar when it comes to finding your best even adults can discover their true talents at any stage of their life and try to maximize acquiring and benefiting from the opportunities galore that is there today to try their hands on every skill set through finding needful time on weekends and holidays.

Opportunities grow and develop with time, the sooner you identify them, the sooner you create space for success .

A poem written by me, describing importance of creativity and why  kids should be given an opportunity to explore.

THE SEAT OF CREATIVITY

 The blissful smile on the flawless face,

of a child so near to GOD

of thy spirits and thy beauty,

no boundaries see but bold,

 

As they not match,

to man ,not hatch

any plots or conspire

to gain the seat in heaven

they cherish no desire.

 

Thy pity on the soul of mankind,

persuaded and chasted by thy smiles ..

thy unconditional signs of affection,

maketh us realise

 

That he who sits in heaven

is eying on our crimes ,

be it guilt or mercy,

the child knows it all.

 

The eyes that wanders about

in space but casts a spell on us

make ways through all odds,

be it light or dust,

to show us omens of good and 

bad they cry ,feel sad or sneeze.

and a little hope is bestowed

when they smile its breeze

like the dew drops on the tiny leaves

in the arms of blessed trees.

 

Not a son nor a daughter

in tenderness and warmth of big hands,

be called by its name,

but a child is a child ,

who until has no name,

lest they touch the chest,

of mother earth and lift

up themselves all alone.

they be called children ,

in the entire eternity

their childhood thus claimed

the seat of creativity

Motivation is lesser than NEED !

Standard

Another article i read today is about “Motivation alone can make you successful ”

I dont Believe this ..

I believe that Motivation has got a lot to do about success but this alone cannot define everything i have achieved in life . I tell you why i say this because its a Universal truth that we are talking about here and how can i deny it not being true .

Very often i have arguments with my fiance , who every now and then complains that he cannot work anymore on his new venture because he has lost all motivation and drive to proceed just because a silly problem snapped off all his logic and focus .

To this, my take has always been that you need to shift your thoughts from getting driven by this word “Motivation”. this word now makes me feel uncomfortable it petrifies me that in absence of this everything will crumble . So much for the word, that it becomes just  a complete perspective of the whole situation that can no longer happen and everything stagnates . the more he says it the more i get annoyed listening to it.

Why is motivation so much important for a person to hit success ? I  see success originating from need and sheer hard work , where work alone is the major concern that you have to perform because you have to do it, out of need. I consider Motivation is muse, a more pleasurable and rich feel word that can be applied for those who have” Choice”  in their hand, the gift of looking for some other task or work by skipping the ones in which they no longer feel interested in.

I think one is able and should be able to Succeed in absence of motivation, because only the Need can help you to work even when you feel pathetic working in some situations under rude bosses or with bad colleagues, you work alone to make ends meet where you have to feed your family, support someone or yourself, in such situations motivation doesn’t really help , because it makes you depressed on finding surroundings as nonadjustable and you cannot quit having no choice.

In such circumstances when you have to work for need you tend to work alone and make things simpler and convenient in the due course of time, you adjust and get used to the situation and keep consistent with your tasks thereby bringing permanence and resilience for the work and work environment .

Having had consistency and resilience you tend to develop more fine skills and smart work abilities  that let you cope up in stress and  take pressures and still focus on the major tasks that define the path for your success and accomplishment.

Honing such necessary skills and not giving up attitude and in absence of motivation you take up challenges and become a non quitter thus leading ahead with the quality not many have which makes you unique and an achiever in every stream where there’s no option other than to succeed and win it over.

Honesty : Need of Every Eon

Standard

Honesty ! Hmmm,  does this word scare you away or makes you feel proud ?

Evidently there is a mixed of both when you reflect in the past or present and a series of situations come into the mind where you have  spoken the truth or lied to anyone or everyone, and the feelings that followed inside you of being proud , guilty , saved the day or self.

In view of the above one thing everyone would agree for is that, You will always feel comfortable with “Truth ” as it makes you feel stronger, more comfortable , free from feelings of guilt, shame and embarrassment, lets you have a proud good night sleep and teach the value of same to the young ones.

Today we may come across people from all walks of life who share quite similar traits ranging from being clever,  lazy, making excuses or lying, diplomatic, unsympathetic, untrustworthy and narcissistic etc. this is a usual sight around you among relatives, friends or colleagues at workplace. The point is not what others have in them as part of their personality that makes them stand where they are today but to observe and undo what has become common now from our lives so that we can Stand Out.

To Stand Out among the rest be it among your friends or work place, one can cultivate and nourish the Habit of Honesty through regular practice of speaking Truth as “Truth is easy to remember than a lie” and be consistent with it every time and in every situation.

Its No doubt a tough task to practice and walk the path of truth and never give it up even in tough times , is a trait that develops after long years of practice and experiments, and the regularity and permanence of this ritual alone makes one Stand out and be considered as Unique and appear bright among the rest. Moreover its a feeling that makes you feel enlightened, light, proud and happy whenever you introspect and have a one on one with Your Real Self that matches Your Ideal Self .

Even Your friends , Boss , colleagues shall reach for you seeking Your advice, opinion, and contribution in the most important tasks and assignments .

We are all well aware about the growing competitive trends in every field and it doesn’t limit anyone to choose the path they take up to walk the ladder of success and it can be any and any traits or trick they follow to achieve it . It may not matter to some but it matters a lot in the work culture as the people in power positions , top bosses,do actually look for honest employees who can be trusted upon and where they can share companies status , strengths and weaknesses with them as well.

Then be sure about if you have Honesty as your core trait , be proud of it and forward it to your young ones and peers, as its easy to be considered as part of the crowd but it really is worth to be one among the crowd.

You CAN Succeed with Collaboration .

Standard

Hello !

Today I read about “being cooperating or collaborating which one influences success” an article by Danial burrus  .

“You cooperate because you have to; you collaborate because you want to”

I agree that people in different situations of  life or workplace pick any one of the above and apply it as and when required.

Cooperation in some ways is subjected to want and compliance merely to be part of the team or work one has to perform , whereas Collaboration is a completely positive term where the person is willingly being part of the situation or work even if there is presence or absence of some interest of the individual involved in those.

Success  majorly depends upon the amount of interaction and commitment of the individuals involved in the task who facilitate group cohesiveness, where they collaborate to achieve a certain goal.

For instance there can be a workplace where a particular assignment is given to two different teams where one team cooperates and another collaborates to complete it.

Cooperation : the team lacks motivation, its more about the willingness of the members involved, social loafing becomes prominent , no clear vision and goal orientation, lack of involvement and devoid of challenges.

Collaboration : its positive in outlook, motivation among members, team spirit, goal oriented, focus on goal and completion of assignment.

Collaboration is a more social and positive term than cooperation where individual love to willingly work for the benefit of others or themselves in  a serious manner where the goal is not deprived of motivation or carelessness.
