The faith can move a mountain. I first read this sentence in a book, ‘the magic of thinking big.’
Yes, indeed, faith can move a mountain. I do believe in it.
Had I always believed it? No, not always.
So, what happened to me which caused me to believe that faith can move a mountain. Like many other children, when I was growing up I had dreams, dreams of travelling the world. While going school I would see a beautiful white magnificent bungalow in the way, a light blue luxurious car, I would dream one day I will have a bungalow like this and a big car. I would dream of a joint family living and eating together. I would dream of happiness and prosperity.
From school, I went to college and after graduating from college like all my friends, I worked hard to get a government job. We have been told many times if you get a government job, your life would be settled. This is true even today in my country, India,-the land of opportunity.
Once I started my job in a prestigious bank in my country, India, It was the year 2000 when I started my job, after working for a year I could understand the big dreams are not for me. Then in my daily hectic schedule and with complacent life, I forgot all my dreams which I used to see in my childhood days. My life was set. And I could do only one thing going to a job and getting a monthly salary.
This is the year 2019, a few years ago I attended a life-changing seminar, the speaker spoke why dreams are important. This two-hour seminar was like someone has sprinkled water on a car covered with dust. My dreams were also covered with dust, all forgotten, but as the session progressed, my dreams started unfolding to me. Once again I became a dreamer. That day I could understand the power of inspiration in life.
You know a man can act either in desperation or inspiration, but we are so accustomed to our daily life-even the painful situation does not seem painful- what is obvious. Therefore, I believe it is better to act in inspiration.
How do people inspire? I do not know the answer. But I know what inspires me. You will also have to find what inspires you? Reading success stories, success philosophy and principles, watching motivation videos, talking to people who are taking action for their dream inspires me. I love the story of a caterpillar who transformed into a beautiful butterfly. And that is what I am doing. I have undertaken a journey to unleash my potential. I could increase my belief level by attending seminars and reading books.
But the thing that keeps on motivating me is taking action for my dreams each day. I am aware of my destination and I am heading towards it each day. I am transforming to be a butterfly each day. I am making an inspirational story each day. I am the driving force. I am the inputter responsible for my life’s output. I am growing. Are you?
I want you to make your story inspiring one. And I do believe you can make it.
Keep growing. I am here to hear your story.

We all have dreams, some have big and some have small, but all have dreams. Our destiny is determined by what we do with our dreams, whether we go after it to make it true or we don’t follow it blaming the outer circumstances. We Claim that our situations are different from others. We make a hell lot of excuses why we can’t make an effort to live our dreams. There may be many reasons for not living our dreams, and one of the chief reasons is feeling embarrassed for not achieving what we set out and declare to achieve. What people will say if I fail? In our childhood days, we are trained to feel embarrassed about our failure. We heard sentences umpteen times by the time we are grown, ‘all your friends will laugh if you fail.’ ‘Don’t you feel shame on your failure?’ Over a period of time we start believing that failure is embarrassing. And it is natural to feel embarrassed about failures. It becomes so deeply embedded in our subconscious that we fail to realize that with this thought we…
This is the biggest impediment in self-development and growth. God has made every individual well-packed with unique ingredients that are needed to live a dream life and made an impact on this world.But, why it does not happen in real life, in the practical life, in the day to day life? The root cause lies in our belief system. It is our belief system that is posing the biggest hindrance in accomplishing the goals we set for ourselves and living our dream life.In the name of practicality and pragmatic approach we forgo many wonderful opportunities that life gives us. Okay, now it is a well-known fact how our belief system develops? It is developed by the association we are in and the books we read. Yes, there is a great impact from the books, motivational videos, association.But the greatest of all these factors are; what we say to ourselves day in and day out. What we think about ourselves. What we believe what we are capable of doing?Give time to know and be aware of yourself, take …
In the process of achievement, we tend to overlook some of the basic questions. When we make a list of goals-desires/dreams with deadlines-we must keep in mind the order. What do we want to be? What do we want to do? What do we want to have? In one of my classes a student expressed her desire, ‘I want to be a bestselling writer?’ Now, she wants to achieve a goal that tags her as a bestseller writer. The number one the thing she will have to do is to think and feel that she has all the ingredients in her that are required to be a best seller. The process of achievement starts with the thought process. All the changes happen inside first then only outside change will take place. Number two: learn about the bestseller writer, what is their daily routine, what they do daily? How do they develop the habit of writing? Stick to the routine until you achieve your goal. It sounds simple. Isn’t it? Of course, it is simple. You might ask this question, ‘if it is so simple why do most people fail to achi…
