Best Gift to your Child

Today is children's day. Children's day is celebrated on November 14, every year. November 14 is birth anniversary of Pandit Jawahar Lal Nehru, the first prime minister of India. On this occasion i will tell you what is in my view Best gift to your Child. 

Today as a parent you can give the best gift to your child. In my view helping your child develop habit of reading is the best gift to your child. I need not mention the importance of reading. One of the best thing about reading is it increases power of imagination, which is one of the important laws of success. Reading makes a person perfect and we all know that all great leaders are also a great readers.  

I,myself, am a voracious reader. Due to my reading habit, i humbly state that my knowledge is far from superior not only in the field i work but also in general. 

I still remember the day very clearly when i was about 7 years old when my father gave me CHANDAMAMA, a monthly magazine for children. He also helped me to read. In this way, i inculcated reading habit. I always thank my Dad for this invaluable gift.

This is the gift i gave to my two children. And i want them to give it to their children.

So, in my view this is the best gift to your child you can give on this Children's day. 

Gift your Child a Book today itself...........and of course help them inculcate habit of reading.

Happy Reading.

Be aware of your dreams and Goals

Hi, my name is Kumar. I am working on a mission to help people realize their true potential and live their dream life. Yesterday, I was with a group of 5 young executives, who was working for the last 5 years in one of the reputed banks of this country. I asked them, “Do you know what the difference between dreams and goals is?” Surprisingly, they answered in negative. They are among the top 10 per cent of the population when it comes to earning. I know they are hardworking and bright and in a couple of years, they will be handling important assignments like in-charge of the branch. So, I was expecting them to know regarding dreams and goals. But when they could not answer, I remember what Brain Tracy once said, “Most people fail to set goals, because they do not know.” Today we are living beyond the information age where we are bombarded with information. So, it is easier to access this kind of information. Probably, the flip side of it is it has made these things complicated. However…

Have Single-Minded devotion To Your Goal

To succeed in your mission, you must have single-minded devotion to your goals.                                                                                                A.P.J. Abdul Kalam
Once you are clear about your dream, you can make it your goal.
How can you make your dream your goal?
When it comes to goal setting, it should be divided into short term goals and long term goals. There is no such categorization which goals can be short term goals and which can be long term goals. You can keep those goals under short term which can be achieved in one year. Long term goals are your dreams. The goals that you want to achieve 2 years down the line or 5 years, 10 years or 20 years down the line. Goals like owning a beautiful house with beautiful garden having swimming pool, at calm or serene place, plenty of space to play with children and spouse, owning fleet of luxurious cars, owning stud farms, exotic vacation, optimum health, financial freedom, time to pursue recreation activiti…

Make monthly resolutions as you make yearly rsolutions

Like many people, I love making new resolutions. Today is the first day of a new month. Isn’t it exciting to make a new resolution for a month? But when I first thought of a monthly resolution my mind rejected it. One month, only one month what could i achieve in one month. I set a goal of losing weight of 10-12 pounds, year after year without ever achieving it. How is it possible to do it in one month? My dream list includes the purchase of a new home, a new car; it includes exotic vacations with my family. My dream list also includes substantial built of a portfolio in paper assets; it also includes completing my first book. It also includes running ultra-marathon. There are career-related dreams. All these long term dreams would take at least many months together if not years, hence it does not count a month. This was my thinking earlier but now, when I set daily goals, a month provides me with an opportunity to 30 times more than my daily time available to work on my dreams. There…
