Most of the time, whenever something is going wrong in our lives we tend to think that a lot is wrong with us and that we need to work too hard and change everything in our lives, or in other words almost bring about a ‘revolution’ in the way we exist or are.
But let me tell you my friend that it is no way near to the truth. All you need to do is bring about very minor changes in your life and that will easily fix most of the problems that you have.
Let me cite an example from my own life. I wanted to write, and write well. Having no idea where to begin I made a commitment to myself that I’ll write daily, for at least 15 minutes I would sit down alone in my room and write. I did not care whether I am able to write 2 lines or one paragraph or a whole page.
I did that for around a month and my writing skill improved dramatically. I have a lot of references to prove that.
Basically, what I am suggesting it doing something on a very small scale daily will have more effect than doing it with high intensity but rarely.
So, if it is a diet change, healthy life style habit, a new skill you want to acquire or anything that you may want to improve about your life just give that one thing 15-30 minutes a day for next 30 days.
You’ll be amazed at how much you can accomplish. This is what Robin Sharma calls the power of 1%, if you just improve by 1% daily, do just 1% of the work daily towards improvement for the next 30 days you would have improved by 30% in one month, which at least for me is really enormous growth.
So, what are you going to accomplish in next one month?
Goal : the result or achievement toward which effort is directed.(as per dictionary.com)
That’s the basic definition of a goal, you are making an effort to do something, to achieve a certain desired state or thing. You decide upon what you WANT, and then begin to work towards achieving it. Continue reading
Whenever one tries to accomplish something, there are always without fail some roadblocks or the so called failures that one experiences. They are there for a purpose.
The goal that we’ve set requires us to be different than what we are right now, if we were able to achieve the goal in the state we are in present then the goal would have been accomplished by us already. Learn to understand that the roadblocks are required; they have been put in the path to help you think of a way around, to check whether you really desire something or just want it because of an outside influence. If you just want something because of an outside influence, you will give up as soon as a few things obstruct your path as you would not tire yourself up for something that you don’t desire from your heart. In the other case however, you will give in all your strength and intelligence which will then expand because of the very effort and soon you will find a way to get rid of the roadblock.

Your brain is composed of millions of brain cells. When these cells, called neurons, communicate an enormous electrical activity is produced in the brain. This electrical activity produces brainwaves. The frequency of these waves influence our state of consciousness. Continue reading
Research has shown that 10,000 hours is the threshold, the “magic” point at which a person goes from being okay to being a super success. It has almost nothing to do with talent, just persistence.
You have to be just above a threshold. It is like basketball, you should be tall enough. You have to be above 6 feet. But it hardly matters whether you are 6 feet 8 or 6 feet 6. Then it is your skills that matter.
According to various studies and various books like outliers it took nearly 10 years of practice for anyone to become a master of their art, Beethoven, Beatles, Sachin Tendulkar, Michael Jackson and many other brilliant people. But 10 years of doing what? Well, precisely it takes about 10,000 hours of practice in any art to become a master of it. Continue reading
