Do Not Convince Yourself, Punish Yourself!

There are times when we have a deadline to meet, a target to achieve, a work to complete & we would not have completed the work. The first thing majority of us do is, we convince ourselves with all logically sound reasons & explanations, as to why the particular target could not be achieved.

But, the most justified thing to be done under such circumstances is to ensure, we accept the fact that we missed out on our target because of our shortcomings and make an effort to make up for it, with the deadline of the next target. We need to make an effort to get better at what we lack, due to which we missed our target. We need to punish ourselves.

We need to get strict with ourselves. As is said: "When you get strict with yourself, Life gets lenient with you. When you get lenient with yourself, Life gets strict with you." ~ Sujit Lalwani.

We need to punish ourself, Like how we reward ourself when we achieve something. Like how rewarding oneself, makes one get motivated & aligned with the focus/target & rejuvenates one for further activity, punishing oneself corrects him, and tunes him to better standards of self-discipline, accountability & reliability.

Nobody is 100% or perfect. Its a chase towards perfection. Your success in life & rate of climbing up in life is directly proportional to how self-disciplined you are, how soon you get self-disciplined & how long you remain!

Punishment should be something that should not make you complacent & buy away your laziness in return for that punishment. That punishment should mean a shame to you, slap to your self-esteem, slap to your integrity. It should drive you away from it, only then you will achieve your targets in time.

Dream Big!

This blog is a small dedication to all the people, circumstances, situations & books which became a reason for me to start dreaming big.

Friends, If there is highest state of satisfaction in this one life, then it definitely lies in dreaming & fulfilling your dreams. Hence the bigger you dream, the greater your satisfaction levels. I disagree with people who are of the opinion that dreaming big takes away your peace of mind. I advice them books on mind control. Its just about keeping yourself at peace while your focus is completely on your dream & once you have achieved it, there is immense amount of pleasure that you experience in this imposed life, whose end points are'nt under our control.

I dreamt big, I dream big, & I shall continue to dream big. Big is a relative word I agree. Hence, I also advice you to keep it relative to the size of your dreams of your yesterday. Watch yourself grow every single day & the pleasure is infinite, equivalent & more than watching your own kid grow up. For, in this case you become your own kid:) Hence, you start loving yourself more & more as the days go by.

World looks more beautiful when one loves himself. Hence, once you start dreaming & fulfilling them, you fall in love with yourself. The beauty is to ensure your dreams encompass all arenas of your life, & help you fulfil your purpose at the end of the day. Hence align all your dreams with your purpose eventually & then grow them bigger.

I once again thank all the people who have inspired me to dream big - My Parents, My Brother - Sumit Lalwani Ji, (My family instilled in me the seeds of aiming higher), Mr. Mohit Sardana Ji, Manjul Arora Ji, Mr. Gaurav Agarwal Ji, Mr. Gagan Sharma Ji, Dr. Pawan Malhan Ji, Late Sri Sunny Arora Ji, Sardar Sri Amrit Pal Singh Sodhi Ji, David J Schwartz, Richard Branson, The Amabanis, Sachin Tendulkar, Shah Rukh Khan, Bacchan Family, Madam Annapoorni, Madam Jyothi, My School Principal - T.Balakrishna, Navneet Singh Ji & all other dreamers whom I met during the journey of this short 23 years of my life.

Looking forward for the remaining life, looking forward to dream even bigger. Requesting you all to start dreaming bigger.

You are doing BUSINESS? OH MY GOD!

In my journey of indulding into promotion of entrepreneurship, helping masses open up their minds to business. I came across lots of people who speak of business as evil. One should study religiously & take up a job. If in between he starts doing a business or even a part time business to add skill sets to his life, & expand possibilities for himself.

The female section of society suffers under this to a greater extent, in most parts of our country. To my surprise its prominent in educated sections of society as well.
I request my readers to think over this & pour in this comments as to what they feel.

I really feel, everyone who is secure (so-called secure)in a job, is secure because someone is into a business, in which he needs the helping hand of this person & hence he or she is employed. If that be the case, business cannot be evil. One should grateful to the term "business", for, that is what creates jobs. You cant be more grateful to the fruit & consider the tree as evil.

I request people to ensure that this education/message is passed on to more & more people to ensure close minded people, considering business as evil & job as divine, to help them open up their mindsets.

This mindset of people is avoiding a lot of potential entrepreneurs from taking birth in our country. Wings of so many youngsters are being chopped of in the fear of they ending up as a failure & they are made to get tunnelled into the thinking of job being the most secure direction for life.

I request that more chances be given to let capable people try venturing into entrepreneurship, at a very young age & they be encouraged. Once a person escalates higher in his age ladder, he seldom has courage to take risk that business involves.

I request all the people who belong to the age group of my parents & all the people who are already parents, to bring up their kids, instilling in them, the spirit of enterpreneurship. For, a man with attitudes of an entrepreneur can do a lot of jobs beyond expectations.

Your comments are welcome. Please pass on the link to this blog to as many people, to help me build a large database of perceptions of people in this regard. Please input a little more efforts (10% of efforts that you have input for reading this blog), to pass this on to as many people as you can. Request them to pour in their comments, & help this e-survey take shape.

Thank You! I appreciate your patience.
