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.

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…
