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, the goals setting and achievement is simple.
Any way my discussion with the young executives proceeded further and I asked another the question, “what are your dreams, you tell me you 5 most important dreams.”
“I want money.” Said One of them.
“How much and why do you want money.” I continued.
“I have never thought about how much, but I want to live a free life.” He said.
“You are in a Bank, and that means you want to be free from your job.”
“O, I am a little confused.” He admitted that he was no clarity about his dreams.
Then I told them, “When you make a timeline for your dreams it becomes your goals.”
Then our next topic of discussion was about books. I asked, “Look, you all have been working in the bank for the last 5 years. Apart from banking subject, have you read any book after you came to a job?”
Out of those 5 young and bright executives only one of them read books after they joined their job.
Isn’t it a valid reason why so many people fail to succeed in life? Of course, it is.
Every day we feed ourselves to take care of our body. What about the mind. Why don’t we feed our mind? Does not our mind need food? Food for thought. How can we feed our mind? I think reading is the best way. Is it so difficult to read? I do not think so. It’s a matter of priority only. The average hour they spend watching television is not less than 20 hours a week.
These are simple things which many of the people are unaware of. And this makes my goal stronger-goal to help people realize their true potential and live their dream life.
Let us dream together and make them real. Do not be afraid of dreams. It does not hurt. We must be aware of our dreams and we must talk about it.
I am here to listen to your dreams. You can share your dreams with me.

The other day while interacting with one of the young officers of a corporate world an interesting incident happened. It is not uncommon that I meet many people in the job who show a keen interest in entrepreneurship. They want to become an entrepreneur but for the one or the other reason, they don’t venture into business. So, this young fellow told me that he had many good ideas for business. Then I could remember that I met some of the brightest men or women who were doing very well in their job and they wanted to start their own ventures. Most of them told me that they had many good ideas. Probably, this is the problem. People having many ideas landed in not working in any of the idea. As Napolean Hill writes in his book think and grow rich that ‘one sound idea is all one needs to achieve success.’ I always emphasis getting success is simple. This I could learn and realize after I underwent many failures in life, though these failures helped to become successful. What one needs is…
A person once asked me, ‘why it is so that even after having clarity in my dream and after much effort I am not realizing my dream?’ What I explained to him, am sharing with you. Having clarity in the dream is the beginning of the achievement process. But you need to give your 100% to make your dream true. I, myself, have made an effort for many years for my dreams but in vain. However, the result started pouring in once I gave my 100% to the cause. Remember, when it comes to realizing your dreams it requires wholehearted effort. There should not be any ambiguity in it. There should not be any doubt. Your belief level should be 100% that you will get the result you are striving for. And your belief level will be intact if it is backed by wholehearted effort. I always say that success is realizing your dreams is based on a simple act. What makes success difficult? You will agree with me or when you will work on your dream you will realize that simple is not easy. Doing the simple and imp…
Take simple steps, unlearn things that are not necessary and learn things that are important to achieve goals and to make life simpler. There are many things which we have learnt. Sometimes, these learning which is supposed to help us achieve greater heights in life, but on the other hand, these causes hindrance, probably, one of the reasons may be while learning we learn many things which are negative learning that causes doubts in mind. If such is the situation we must unlearn certain things. So, we can create space to learn new things that are essential for us to achieve a larger purpose. We must keep in mind the process and act through which we master the things is simple. If we make the laws and process of life simple, it would be easy to live a simple life and achieve more in life. A few days ago I was watching a videotape. I heard a speaker saying interesting thing about Sachin Tendulkar, the greatest batsman in the history of cricket and Bharat Ratna awardee. The speaker said t…
