Write The Best Life Story!

your-life-storyDiwali is a Hindu festive season. One of the festivals gets celebrated in Diwali season is the Hindu New Year. As per a quote I had read, each new year is like a blank paper which gives us an opportunity to write a new story for our life and people connected with us. Of course, we can’t erase the past stories, but we can give a turning point to our story. I’m not gonna give too long motivational speech today as it’s your life, your rule! Just want to say that your life is your story! You are lead character of it. So make it the best one!

The fun thing is Hindu new year comes before a few months of  calendar new year followed by the whole world. So you can define your goals of story for next year and recheck those after 2 months in the calendar new year. If you are not on the track, you can get yourself on the track of your right awesome story of your life.

This is it! May be the shortest Blog I have ever written! I hope my message went across! And you write the best chapter in an upcoming year for your life story!

Empower the Needful

There was a truck driver called Bahadursinh making his living by driving truck on contract basis. He lives in a very small village of Punjab. In his family, he has a sick mother; a young sister for whom he needs to arrange dowry; a widow sister with two small kids studying in primary and secondary schools. Bahadursinh always face shortage of money so each contract makes a big difference in his life.

As part of the contract, he was supposed to fetch a consignment from Ahmedabad. He was late and the shipment manager was angry on him. He asked him if he won’t reach in 10 minutes, the consignment will be given to another driver. He had to pay the fees of his nephew and buy medicine for her mother so he had to get this consignment. But, he wasn’t able to locate the address.

He went to a tea stall where a few people were standing and asked the address. One of them suggested to go straight and then take left.
Suddenly, a man next to him said, “No, that’s a long way. Take a right and get onto highway, then take left. It will make you reach quickly”.
The 1st man said, “No, there will be traffic. It will make him late. Go straight and take left.
The 2nd man said, “There can’t be traffic at this time. Go in the direction I verbalized.

Both of them started arguing and explaining how and why their suggested path is right. In between a few more people joined the herd. Some thought a quarrel happening and some thought might be an accident. More and more people started gathering. Different people with different judgments which led them to start asking like what happened and other people explaining them which was distracting whole conversation agenda. Even people started giving him different directions which made him more confused.

From somewhere a lady came, get the whole scenario and asked that truck driver to come behind me as I am going the same way. He went behind her and reached his destiny.

Crux:
Instead of fighting on proving that the direction they are suggesting, one of them could have given up so at least Bahadursinh could start moving towards his destination. They both wanted him to reach his destination, so they could have come on some common suggestion. Bahadur himself could have been reactive to gauge which one of them sounds more credible and follow his direction with an instinct or he could have left both of them and move to ask some other wise man instead of wasting his precious time in listening the useless arguments.

Lessons from the story:

  • Instead of proving ourselves right, we should contribute in creating the situation right for the person who need our suggestions. It’s not about you, it’s about him and his betterment
  • Sometimes just to prove ourselves right, even if we want to do something good for someone, we do opposite and worsen the situation for him. So better to leave our selfish egoist side aside and get to a common ground or just give up by letting the next person win so at least the guy can move on towards his destiny.
  • Don’t be judgmental to satisfy your curiosity. Make sure to help the one or leave or just be quiet until the Needful get the solution so someone wants to help can help. Don’t distract those who are trying to help.
  • Lead by action. Not by words
  • When too many suggestions are coming, be wise enough to quickly decide which one to follow. If you can’t decide, leave the place find help somewhere else instead of wasting your time staying stealth.

Once Upon A Time!

Once upon a time, there was a girl who was good at her work. She had achieved many things professionally at a really young age. She also had many friends. She was good at balancing both her career and friends. One of her friends used to pressurize her that ‘instead of balancing, give more focus on your career. Don’t settle down with your achievements. Leave this habit of Facebook (she had her fan group with thousands of members), utilize this time in better activities. Stop chasing emotions & people, chase your dreams. Instead of trying to keep everyone around you happy which is almost impossible, try to earn the pride in your work. Do something great by being more serious because you are different and you are meant to be the one!’ 🙂

Just like any one of us, she didn’t listen. She thought, I am a team leader at this age. My bosses are happy. I am pride for my family. And in all these, I easily manage to do some Facebook, some chat with friends, and chattering! So what’s wrong with it? That friend of hers kept on telling her to focus on career more, but she kept on ignoring him. At last that friend gave up. He never liked to write anything still he wrote a last note to her via email before resting his case. The letter was very lengthy, but the highlights of it reads,

“Dear, Stop being weak and distracted by this temporary things & mundane joy. Also, don’t try to get mixed with the crowd around you. You are different, you are unique & you meant to be this. There are so many girls who pursue different courses to be like you still they can’t get what you have inherently. Know and value your uniqueness. You can do miracles in your life and inspire many. The only thing you need to do is “Define meaning of your life & FOCUS”. You know how proud I feel when someone appreciates you! You have many great qualities, yet some needs to get polished. These weaknesses of yours (Facebook, chattering, etc.) are distracting you from what you are supposed to be. Remember, you are unique & you deserve much more than what you have, today!”

After reading this she promised to do what he was suggesting, but she couldn’t! She ends up doing what she used to do. Her friend got tired of telling her meaninglessly. He gradually left her. No the friendship is intact, but he was detached from her & made a healthy distance. Maybe because he had big dreams for her friend who was enjoying her distractions & think she has achieved enough. Her life was going well with the normal routine of work, achievements, emotional outburst, chattering, Facebook, outing, etc.

One day, her day of transformation came. She decided to choose the tough path of giving more than 100% to her professional life. She joined a new company as a manager. She opted for a few professional courses. She started taking more initiatives, more job responsibilities. She started listening to her critics to understand the points of improvement instead of listening to respond & justify herself. Initially, all this was too tough, but then it started becoming her routine life. People around her started feeling this change, kept texting her & asking “Are you angry? Are you upset?, etc.”. Even alleged her to be rude & egoistic. This could have been distraction to go back into that mediocre settled life of her. But, she was tenacious for her choice. Instead of replying to each individually, which might drag her back in game of justification & emotions, she just made a public reply,

on-this-day

When she started this hard journey, she realized she was not that perfect or successful as she always thought she was! The criticism needed to be worked upon instead of justified. She uncovered so many facts & skills of her own. She made a huge success. 🙂 She became much more successful, and inspiration and mentor of a few. She loves this transformation and everything it gifted her. She isn’t settled with her achievements, she is hungry for more and more & trying for that. She misses her friend who wanted her to be on this path of success, but you can’t touch the same water & emotions again. Never mind, his blessings are still with her! 🙂

The End Note:
We used to settle down with our achievements because we compare it with those who couldn’t achieve this. Whilst we should compare it with them who have achieved more than us. We have to challenge ourselves. We have to focus on the important things instead of balancing everything. Else we will pass our lives in balancing instead of achieving.

And ya, we all get many friends who love us & care for us, but a very few of us get blessed with the friends who scold us for not achieving something more & push us to uncover our magnificent talents. Make sure you don’t lose them as she did!

It’s Now or Never!!!! Choice Is Yours! What Do You Want??

Last weekend after a long time I had a conversation with a friend who is a business owner. As we both are workaholics, we shared more of work related stuff and future plans for achieving next milestones in our individual careers. The observations we both mutually agreed upon being something I find worth sharing with you guys as there are so many young talent here, and if any one of you get the direction for your success path then it’s worth it!

He started like, “Ashvini! We have so many strong and talented people in our firm that we can say they are assets for us. But, they are not as focused as we were when we were at that stage and we still are! If you give them a deadline and the work pressure, they used to achieve impossible! But, the thing is we have to tell them what to do! They don’t have that hunger of I want to do more. And if we increase the work pressure, they also don’t like it and then, they move on. I don’t understand the philosophy of life they have that this is the time to enjoy life…” And the conversation went on.

If I narrate the discussion then we both feel that as an individual we all have that spark in us which can take us to that ultimate peak of success. But, the thing is, our mindset which is set by us. I used to hear a few sentences like, “that person get success because he is lucky”, maybe he is lucky, but the thing is that person never sat with his luck, he amalgamated his luck with his hard-work, to achieve what he has achieved because to become successful both, luck and hard-work, are equally important. One more is, “This is the time to enjoy!”. Right! But, this is also the time to achieve something. After 10 years, you will still left with the time to enjoy (if you work hard then more money as well to enjoy better  😉 ), but you won’t have the same opportunities or the energy or freedom at that time. One more is: “I can manage both work and fun.” Yeah! We all are good at balancing it, but here, the key is not balancing it, the key is to set priority and giving more emphasis to your career than the fun. This is the time we all have to choose what we want in life?

Let me share a few experiences. How would you feel if in the crowd of hundreds of people in an event someone come to you and ask you,”you are that person nah?”and you say yes, but I’m sorry I don’t recognize you.” And that person says, “That’s not an issue! You have been my inspiration and whatever I’m today is just because of you!” That person knowing much more about you even a few things which you don’t know about yourself because the person has been following you. Okay! And How would it feel when someone says I want to be just like you. And how would it feel when someone says this professional event is incomplete without you. In a nutshell, being a real life hero, who inspires others life. What do you think? How would it feel? Giving time to your career and making work your passion can get you the long lasting peace, happiness and self satisfaction, which might not be able to get achieved with anything else.

When we have bad mood, we say I don’t want to work today. I want to go for a vacation. I need a break. These are our lines. Aren’t those? Some go for smoking, drinking as well. But, these are the temporary solutions. The permanent solution is Love your work so much that whenever you are not in the mood, you feel to distract yourself by working more. Get yourself so busy that you just don’t get a chance to think about your other issues. Sounds difficult? But, it is possible. It will take time to cultivate this habit, but will be your trait once you start implementing it.

One last note which I had shared with a person recently is,”Love your work because it is the only thing which will give you happiness and nothing less than it!. If you get succeeded, happiness! If you get failed, you will learn something, which you can use in your next try and you will get success, means happiness! 🙂 We can’t control people/emotions flow in and out of our life, but we can control and shape our professional growth. Get that determination and hunger which make you fall in love with your Growth and Success! And, then you won’t like anything else. Try it! Nothing can be as melodious as the clink of success! Nothing can be as peaceful as watching that pride in the eyes of your parents and dear ones for you!! 🙂 Nothing can be as noble as inspiring someone to get his best out!

Yes, you can get all these! Just set the priority and act to get what you desire for you and moreover, you family!!!

If you like this Blog and got a little positive feeling keeps it ignited and whenever you reach that level of success, don’t forget to recall me and at that time, don’t say “Thank you Ashvini”, say “Bless you Ashvini!” because I would be glad to get the “blessings more than thanking”. You can bless me now for sharing this Blog if you felt inspired a bit 😉

Frog ≈ Human Beings

boil-a-frogLet me compare Human Beings and Frogs 🙂
Human Beings and Frogs are the two creatures having stupendous personality to adjust in nature.

Let’s See How?
Put a frog into a vessel, fill with water and start heating the water.
What happens then ???
As the temperature of the water begins to rise, the frog adjusts its body temperature accordingly.
The frog keeps adjusting to the increasing temperature!!!
At the point, when the water is about to reach boiling point, the frog can’t adjust anymore and tries to jump out, but it’s unable to do so. Because the frog has lost all its strength and energy in adjusting with the rising temperature.
The frog dies very soon!

Let’s think about it! what killed the frog? Boiling water? Its temperature?
No!
The truth, what killed the frog is its own lack of ability to decide when to jump out.

There comes a time when we all need to face the situation and take appropriate actions. We all need to adjust with people & sets of circumstances, but we need to be sure when we need to adjust & when we need to move on!

Recalls a dialog from the movie Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani told by Bunny, “ Sahi time pe sahi jagah se kat leni chahiye, warna gile shikwe hone lagte hai… 🙂 ”

Life is all about going with the flow. So, be flexible, responsive and adaptable to change. Be in a new relationship with life where you make little concessions also. Stop others to exploit us physically, emotionally, financially, spiritually because if you don’t, they will continue to do so.

Learn whether to give in or to give it up?
Let us decide when to jump whilst we still have power! 🙂

What You Want To Change From Your Past?

what you want to change?

what you want to change?

Earlier I had shared a funny question asked to me post by a kid in a blog and how I still recall that incident, which spreads a smile over my face. Today, I want to share an another question asked to me in a job interview, which is one of the memorable questions for me. That question might get asked from an HR perspective as it wasn’t technical. But, it was really interesting. For the first time got asked such question to me by anyone. Even I never asked it to myself ever before. Without making more fuss lemme share that question. In fact, lemme share the whole incident.

I went for an interview. The interviewers asked me a few technical questions and I answered all in a jiffy. Then the question fired,
“What do you want to change from your past?”
“From my professional life?”, I asked
“Overall. Anything.”, Interviewer remarked.
That just got almost my whole life in a flashback. Just like a movie scene, each indictment got scanned through my retina in a few secs and I confidently replied, “Nothing.”
“Nothing?!!”, interviewers exclaimed.
“Yes, nothing. Because my past have made me what I am today and I find my life in a good shape so I don’t want to change anything from my past.”

Then a few questions happened and interview got over.

I headed for my home. Though I had answered that question instantly, then I looked deep inside. Recalled all those heartaches and breaks, silly mistakes, stupid decisions, emotional outbursts, unintentional disputes, so on and so forth. Pondered well and thought again, and asked again, what I want to change from my past? The same answer was there. 🙂 Often, I ponder over this question and ask that if there is anything added in my recent past life, which I would like to change? 🙂 I think we all need to ask this to ourselves occasionally and may be a few more such questions. This might be painful to face those mistakes you made in the past, but it will keep you alert that you are not suppose to repeat those. It will also tell you how strong have you been in your weakest moment and you can be even stronger.

We might not able to change our past, but we all can shape our future. However, I always say our present and future are dependent on our past. So don’t just throw the past behind, keep it alive in your memories so you can live in the present to shape your future in a way you want to. Ah! It’s been too philosophical today. Isn’t it? But, I think it’s worth give a thought.

Chance: The Series Part 2: Second Chance – Whether to give or not!!!!?

Welcome back to the Chance Series – Chance or Second Chance :). Hope you liked the first part of this chance series: https://ecosmobian.wordpress.com/2016/01/20/chance-the-series-part-1-second-chance-will-we-get-it-or-not/. Today, I have a really interesting and thoughtful story to share, written by Dr. I. K. Vijaliwala, for this part of the series.

એકવાર વાચશો તો મોજ આવી જશે…..વાંચજો જરુર….

“ચાન્સ” ! – ડૉ. આઈ. કે. વીજળીવાળા

એક યુવતી ઉદાસ ચહેરે પોતાના ડ્રોઈંગરૂમમાં બેઠી હતી. એની આંખોમાં ગ્લાનિ ભરી હતી. એને જોતાં જ લાગતું હતું કે એ ખૂબ જ ઊંડા વિચારોમાં ડૂબેલી હતી. એ દિવસે એની લગ્નની વર્ષગાંઠ-એનિવર્સરી હતી. એ દિવસે પણ એનો પતિ વહેલી સવારે જ કામે જવા નીકળી ગયો હતો. એમનાં લગ્નને હજુ ચાર જ વરસ થયાં હતાં. એને એ વાતનું દુઃખ લાગતું હતું કે ખાલી ચાર જ વરસમાં એનો પતિ એમના લગ્નની તારીખ ભૂલી ગયો હતો. આટલાં વરસમાં જ પરિસ્થિતિ કેવી બદલાઈ ગઈ હતી એ યાદ કરતાં એનાથી નિસાસો નંખાઈ ગયો.

એ ઊભી થઈ. બારી પાસે જઈને બહાર જોયું. આકાશમાં વાદળ ગોરંભાઈ રહ્યાં હતાં. કોઈ પણ ક્ષણે ધોધમાર વરસાદ પડશે એવું લાગતું હતું. લગ્નના પ્રથમ ત્રણ વરસ વરસાદની ઋતુમાં બંને જણ કેવી મજા કરતાં એ એને યાદ આવી ગયું. બંને એકબીજામાં કેવા ગૂંથાઈને રહેતાં અને એકબીજાની નાની-નાની ખુશીનો કેટલો ખ્યાલ રાખતા એ નજર સામે તરવરવા લાગ્યું. છેલ્લા એક વરસથી બંનેના સંબંધમાં કાંઈક અજબ કડવાશ ફેલાઈ ગઈ હતી. બંને વચ્ચે નાની નાની બાબતોમાં ઝઘડા થવા લાગ્યા હતા. એકબીજા સાથે રિસાવું, એકબીજાને ગમે તેમ બોલી દેવું, અપમાન કરી નાખવું વગેરે જાણે કે રોજિંદી ઘટના બની ગઈ હતી.

એનિવર્સરીનો દિવસ હતો પણ એ અત્યંત ઉદાસ હતી. ચાર જ વરસમાં એમની જિંદગીએ લીધેલા વળાંકના વિચારોએ એને હચમચાવી મૂકી હતી. એની આંખોમાંથી આંસુની ધારા વહી નીકળી. જૂના દિવસોને યાદ કરતાં એને થતું હતું કે કાશ ! એના પતિને એમની આજે એનિવર્સરી છે એ યાદ આવી જાય અને એ અત્યારે, આ જ ક્ષણે પાછો આવી જાય તો કેવું સારું ?……. બરાબર એ જ ક્ષણે એના ઘરની ડોરબેલ વાગી. એને આ ચમત્કાર જેવું લાગ્યું. એણે બારણું ખોલ્યું. એના આશ્ચર્યનો પાર ન રહ્યો. ત્યાં એનો પતિ જ ઊભો હતો ! બે ઘડી તો એ માની જ નહોતી શકતી કે જે એ જોઈ રહી હતી એ સાચું હતું ! બારણામાં ખરેખર એનો પતિ ઊભો હતો ! આખી ઘટના બની જ એવી રીતે હતી કે એને હજુ એ ચમત્કાર જેવી જ લાગતી હતી. એને નવાઈમાં ડૂબી ગયેલી અને એકદમ પૂતળાની માફક ઊભેલી જોતાં એનો પતિ બોલ્યો, ‘ઓ ! માય ડિયર ! અરે વહાલી ! મને તારે માફ કરી દેવો પડશે. હું સાવ ભૂલી ગયો હતો કે આજે આપણી એનિવર્સરી છે ! યાદ આવતાં જ હું ઉતાવળે ભાગ્યો છું એટલે તારા માટે ફૂલો કે ગિફટ લાવવાનું શક્ય ન બન્યું. પરંતુ મારી પાસે એક સરસ પ્લાન છે. આપણે હમણાં જ કોઈ સારી હોટેલમાં જઈશું. ત્યાં શેમ્પેઈન અને બેસ્ટ કેક સાથે આપણે બે જણ પહેલાંની માફક જ એનિવર્સરી ઊજવશું ! બધું જ ભૂલીને ! બોલ, તું શું કહે છે ?’

આનંદથી ઘેલી થઈ ગયેલી પેલી યુવતી હજુ તો કાંઈ જવાબ આપે એ પહેલાં જ ફોનની ઘંટડી વાગી. એ યુવતીએ ડ્રોઈંગરૂમના કોર્નર પાસે જઈને રિસીવર ઉપાડીને ‘હેલો !’ કહ્યું.

‘મેમ !’ સામે છેડેથી અવાજ આવ્યો, ‘હું નજીકના પોલીસ-સ્ટેશનથી બોલું છું. શું આપ મિસિસ ફલાણા બોલો છો ? મિસ્ટર ફલાણાંના પત્ની ?’

‘હા, હું એ જ બોલું છું, બોલો, શું કામ હતું ?’ એ યુવતીએ જવાબ આપતાં પૂછ્યું.

‘મેમ ! સૉરી ટુ સે ! તમને જણાવતાં દિલગીરી થાય છે કે તમારા પતિનું જો આ જ નામ હોય તો એ આજે એક કલાક પહેલાં મૃત્યુ પામ્યા છે. ટ્રેન નીચે કપાઈ જવાને કારણે એમનું કરુણ મોત થયું છે. આ તો એમના ખિસ્સામાંથી મળેલા પાકીટના આધારે અમે તમારો નંબર તેમજ સરનામાની ભાળ મેળવી શક્યા છીએ. મારે તમને અહીં આવવા વિનંતી કરવાની છે, કારણ કે તમે મૃતદેહની ઓળખવિધિ કરશો એ પછી જ અમે પંચનામાની કાર્યવાહી પૂરી કરી શકીશું અને લાશને પોસ્ટમૉર્ટમ માટે મોકલી શકીશું. હું જાણું છું કે આ સમાચારથી તમારી દશા શું થઈ હશે. એટલે તમે અહીં આવી શકો તેમ છો કે હું જીપ મોકલું ? પરંતુ તમે જેમ બને તેમ જલદી આવી જશો તો સારું રહેશે !’ પોલીસ અધિકારીએ કહ્યું.

‘પરંતુ….! પરંતુ….. મારા પતિ તો અહીંયા છે. મારી સાથે ! મારા ઘરમાં જ છે ! તો એમનું મૃત્યુ કઈ રીતે શક્ય બને ?’ થોડુંક થોથવાતા અને થડકારો અનુભવતાં એ યુવતી બોલી.

‘સૉરી મેમ ! હું તમારા મનની પરિસ્થિતિ સમજી શકું છું !’ પોલીસ અધિકારી બોલ્યા, ‘તમે જે કહો તે ! પરંતુ તમારે પોલિસ-સ્ટેશન તો આવવું જ પડશે, કારણ કે એમની લાશ અત્યારે મારી સામે પડી છે. એટલે તમે કહો છો એ કઈ રીતે શક્ય બન્યું એ હું તમને સમજાવી શકું તેમ નથી. પરંતુ જેમ બને તેમ જલદી તમે અહીં આવી જાવ તો સારું, નહીંતર કોઈને ત્યાં મોકલવાની મને ફરજ પડશે !’ એટલું કહી પોતે ક્યા પોલિસ-સ્ટેશનથી બોલે છે એ જણાવીને એ અધિકારીએ ફોન મૂકી દીધો.

યુવતીનું મન સુન્ન થઈ ગયું. એણે પાછા ફરીને દરવાજા તરફ નજર કરી. એનો પતિ ત્યાં નહોતો ! ‘તો પછી શું એનો આત્મા મને મળવા આવ્યો હશે ?’ એના મનમાં ધાસ્કો પડ્યો. પોતે એકધારા એના વિચારો કરતી હતી એટલે કદાચ એનો આત્મા ખેંચાઈને આવી પહોંચ્યો હોય એવું બની શકે ? એ આગળ કાંઈ પણ વિચારી ન શકી. એને ડૂમો ભરાઈ આવ્યો. એ ત્યાં જ ઢગલો થઈ ગઈ. મૃત વ્યક્તિના આત્માઓ પોતાના પ્રિયજનને મળવા આવ્યા હોય એવા ઘણા કિસ્સાઓ એણે છાપામાં તેમજ મૅગેઝિનમાં વાંચ્યા હતા. પરંતુ ખરેખર એવું બન્યું હશે ? વાસ્તવિક દુનિયામાં એવું બનતું હશે ? એવું વિચારતાં એનાથી જોરથી રડી પડાયું.

રડતાં રડતાં એને થયું કે શું પોતાના પતિને જીવતો જોવાનો કે મળવાનો એને એક પણ ચાન્સ- એક પણ તક નહીં મળે ? એને રાડો પાડીને ઈશ્વરને કહેવાનું મન થઈ આવ્યું કે જો હવે માત્ર એક જ તક એ આપે તો પોતે ક્ષુલ્લક અને નાની નાની વાતોમાં એની સાથે ક્યારેય ઝઘડો નહીં કરે. અરે ! એની બધી ભૂલોને એ માફ કરી દેશે. જો ભગવાન એને એક મોકો આપે તો એ પોતાના પતિને માત્ર ને માત્ર પ્રેમ જ કરશે. એ કેટલો પ્રેમાળ હતો એનો એને અત્યારે ખ્યાલ આવતો હતો. પરંતુ પોતે મૂરખીએ એની આવી ખૂબીઓ જોવાને બદલે ખામીઓ જોવાનું કામ જ કર્યું હતું. એટલે જ નાના નાના ઝઘડાઓએ એમની જિંદગી કડવી બનાવી દીધી હતી. એણે મનોમન કહ્યું કે જો ઈશ્વર એને હવે જિંદગી નવેસરથી જીવવાનો એક જ ચાન્સ આપે તો પોતાના પતિની સાથે અદ્દભુત જિંદગી જીવવાનો પ્રયાસ કરશે અને જૂની એક પણ ભૂલનું પુનરાવર્તન નહીં થવા દે ! આંસુભરી આંખે એણે આકાશ સામે જોયું.

ભગવાનને આજીજી કરતાં કહ્યું, ‘હે ભગવાન ! મને એક ચાન્સ- એક તક આપ ! હું હવે ખૂબ જ પ્રેમથી જિંદગી જીવવાની કોશિશ કરીશ ! ફક્ત એક જ ચાન્સ ! પ્રભુ હવે હું નવેસરથી શરૂઆત કરવા માગું છું. તને વચન આપું છું કે હું હવે કોઈ પણ વાંધાવચકા કે ઝઘડા વગરની જિંદગી જીવીશ !’ …. પરંતુ એનું મન કહેતું હતું કે હવે બધું સમાપ્ત થઈ ગયું હતું. એને ખાતરી થઈ ગઈ હતી કે એવો કોઈ ચાન્સ – કોઈ તક હવે ક્યારેય નહીં મળે. એણે એ તક હંમેશ માટે ગુમાવી દીધી હતી. એને હવે કાંઈ કરતાં કાંઈ સૂઝતું નહોતું. રડતાં રડતાં જ એ ફર્શ પર લાંબી થઈ ગઈ.

બરાબર એ જ વખતે નીચેના બાથરૂમનું બારણું ખૂલવાનો અવાજ આવ્યો. રડવાનું બંધ કરીને એ યુવતી સફાળી બેઠી થઈ ગઈ. જોયું તો એનો પતિ બાથરૂમમાંથી બહાર આવી રહ્યો હતો. હજુ તો એ યુવતી કાંઈ કહે એ પહેલાં જ એ બોલ્યો, ‘અરે હા, ડાર્લિંગ ! હું તને એક વાત કહેવાનું ભૂલી ગયો ! આજે એકાદ કલાક પહેલાં એક ખિસ્સાકાતરુએ મારું પાકીટ મારી લીધું. મને ખબર પડી એટલે હું એની પાછળ દોડ્યો, પરંતુ એ રેલવેટ્રેકની દીવાલ કૂદીને રેલવેના પાટા પર ભાગી ગયો એટલે હું એને પકડી ન શક્યો ! સૉરી ડિયર ! બાથરૂમ જવાની જલદીમાં તને આ વાત કરવાનું રહી ગયું હતું !’

પેલી યુવતી ફરીથી અવાચક અને પૂતળા જેવી બની ગઈ ! બેક્ષણ પછી એ ઊભી થઈ અને દોડીને પોતાના પતિને ભેટી પડી ! એની આંખોમાંથી શ્રાવણ-ભાદરવો વરસવાના શરૂ થઈ ગયા. પરંતુ હા ! આ વખતે આનંદ અને હર્ષના કારણે એ આંસુઓ વહી રહ્યાં હતાં !

આપણે કેમ હંમેશાં એવા વહેમમાં જ જીવીએ છીએ કે જિંદગી આપણને આપણી નાની-મોટી ભૂલો સુધારવાનો બીજો ચાન્સ આપશે ? નથી લાગતું કે આજથી જ એ કામ શરૂ કરી દેવું જોઈએ.

Second Chance - Ecosmobian

Second Chance – Ecosmobian

Shocked after reading this story or had Goosebumps or fear and scared by just imaging of losing someone…….???? 🙂

In the story, “Chance”, we can see that a couple love each other and living happily, but suddenly they started fighting on small issues. They forgot to respect decisions and thoughts of each other. Their ego came in-between them. They were disrespecting each other now and then. They were treating each other like a slave, like they never had any kind of love, understanding and respect for each other. And once they realized, they have lost their loved one, their companion, their friend for the lifetime and never going to see that person again, the self-realization happened. They understood, found and realized their mistakes, their faults, their behavior towards the person, once whom they love, like and couldn’t expect a life without them. But these all happen, when they lost that person and after that, they are begging for the person and begging for a “Chance”, to revise their mistakes, their faults, the pain they gave to that person. Once they lost the person, they realized the importance of that person in their life, and their own mistakes which spoiled their relation. But, it is not always necessary that one will get the “Chance”, to revise their deeds, to heal the injuries on that person’s emotions and heart.

“તમે જેને યાદ કરો છો, એ હમેશા માટે યાદ બનીને રહી જાય એ પહેલા સમય અને તક જડપી લો.” Go and grab the Opportunity and Chance to share the importance of the person in your life whom you are missing, before that person becomes a memory in your life……

It is not an end. Stay tuned and come back next week as I will be back with my own thoughts on this topic in the final part of this series.

A Few Words of Wisdom For Leading A Better Life

This is my last Blog post on Ecosmobian corner, of course of 2015. 🙂 I was pretty confused what topic to write about. So thought to just blab about a few words of wisdom (According to me), which might help you professionally and personally. All these have been learned from personal experience and self tested. 🙂

Wise Words by Ash Vyas

Wise Words by Ash Vyas

Lead Without Title
You might have heard this as it is a concept of one of the Books of Robin Sharma. I really liked the idea and thus thought to share. The concept is you don’t need to be a minister or a team leader or a CEO to do something which is right and in favor of something better. What you just need is the courage to take the first step and lead it towards the destiny. You might face the hurdles, but you gotta trust me these hurdles will make your journey memorable and beautiful. In a nutshell, if you think you can make a difference, you can improve something, you don’t need to wait till the time you get some sort of title or designation, just take a lead. 🙂

Time Is Always Right
I often hear people saying  will do this and that when the right time comes. You know what! Such time never comes. We have to pick up a random time and make it right. Also, I hear nothing gonna change. It will be the same. May be you’re right. But, wait! what if the things change? See, there is nothing wrong to put your point. It might make a difference, might not, but at least you will be ensured of not having that regret of, “alas! I have said/ did it, then things might have been different”. This is the right time to live your life at the fullest, to talk about your ideas, showcase your skills and get focused on the things which matters to you the most. 🙂

Have Someone To Listen To You
It is very much important to get your feelings out. Keeping it inside may create internal upheaval, which may create a state of constant irritation, frustration, etc. So it is always good to have at least one person to whom you can share your feelings. It is not necessary to have only one as it can be possible that someone empathize your personal feelings in a better way. Whilst someone might understand  your professional ambitions clearly. However, be wise and selective to whom you share your feelings as most of the time people listen to you , but can’t understand you. 🙂

Be a Calm Listener
It is a very rare feature, we humans have. 🙂 So cultivate this in you. Listen to the people who is getting their outburst or telling you something. Mark the words, you need to listen, not hear. I have listened to so many random strangers who are getting their outburst for mismanagement of AMTS. 😛 It doesn’t take away anything from me, but it might make them feel lighter. 🙂 Yeah! sometimes it is irritating, but that’s okay. I manage to keep calm and listen. BTW, don’t forget to listen to yourself. We all lead a very busy life. We need to sit in a lonely place for some time and listen to those unsaid feelings inside us to make the things clearer. 🙂

All Questions Are Not Meant To Be Answered
We seek for answers of trivia, which complicates the thing. For instance, why is she behaving like that? Why didn’t I get that reward? So on and so forth. Let the things happen the way it is! Don’t try to know everything. You will get to know if it is meant to be. Channelize your energy on something which can add value to life of yours and others.

This is all I wanted to share which I have learned and tried to cultivate in my life. It makes life easier, lighter and happier. I wish it helps you out in a way or another. I don’t seem so, but I am a really good listener. If you ever find me helpful, feel free to reach me. 🙂

I wish you a very Happy wala New Year in Advanced! 🙂

List of Top New Year Resolution You Must Make This Time

New Year Resolution: ashbyasseo - ecosmob

New Year Resolution: ashbyasseo – ecosmob

The 2015 is ready to say goodbye to us. Many of you like me might be thinking about the resolution to be made this time. I know often the resolutions don’t go well and get into vain within a few months. However, if you won’t dream something, how will you make it a reality? The same theory applies to the resolution. If you will not take any resolution, how will you achieve it? So this time make one. 😉 And you know what? If you fail to achieve that, take it again next year with a little more determination to achieve it. And you have to trust me, once you will definitely achieve it as I did achieve my new year resolution this year, which I was taking for a past few years. 🙂 Yippi, finally I achieved it! Certainly I have I guess. 🙂

I assume I have convinced you enough to take a new year resolution. You must have a few in mind, but I would like to share a few from myside to make your job more easier or tougher 🙂 I think the list I want to share must be part of your New Year Resolution. So here I go.

I will try to achieve work life balance
I often see two types of people in any industry. One who gives too much emphasis and time to their work and another who are on the other side of the coin. They are living just for fun. 😀 I personally think both are on the wrong path. Why? Think it yourself. You will definitely realize that both are equally important at this stage of life.

I will give time to my parents
Spending time with family is really important, but spending quality time is too much important. I know many of you might say I do give time to my parents. But, the question is are you giving the quality time and your full attention to them when you are with them? Taking them out is not enough. You have to keep your buzzing phone aside. Our parents give us their precious love, care and time to us. We won’t be able to make even an inch of what they have done for us and still doing. However, we have to make the efforts to sit with them, listen to them, giggle with them, taking them out, asking them their choices, giving them pleasant surprises and making them feel special in a way that they feel we truly value them. Also, give a dedicated time slot to your partner if you have any. 😉 🙂

I will work for shaping my career
I have seen many people arguing I am doing well because I am earning this much or I finish all work assigned to me. Completing working hours and assigned task is not anything to contribute towards your shining career. Do you walk an extra mile to stand out in your work? Are you a self learner? Are you an initiator? No? Then you will be still at where you are. As a well wisher, to all of them, whom I can’t say this directly, please focus on your career. Put your WhatsApp, FB and other distractions aside. Friends are important, but don’t you think your career is important too?

I Will Learn To Live For Myself
This is something you might rarely hear. But, trust me giving importance to yourself and your own feelings are really important. Often we sacrifice our happiness for others. That’s good. But, sometimes we keep on getting hurt just to keep someone happy who might not care for noticing that we are getting hurt. Not good! :\ Learn to live for yourself a bit. If you are not happy, you can’t keep your loved ones happy. This will be the toughest, but taking stand for own self is equally important and will be good as sooner as you start trying it. This resolution will take years to achieve and won’t be achieved 100% ever as we all are emotional animals. Still, we must give it a try! 😉

I will Try my best to achieve My Resolution(s)
This is the most important one. 🙂 Making the resolution and live up to it for 2 days is a waste of energy and might lead you to depression that you just can’t do it. Better to pursue strong willpower to achieve what you want!

Wish you Happy Holidays! (Meri, Teri, Hum sab ki) Merry Christmas in advanced!

What Will You Gift Yourself This Diwali?

Special Diwali Gift Idea

Special Diwali Gift Idea

The Diwali is one of the biggest festival in India. As per the Hindu mythology, God Shri Ram returned back to the Ayodhya, his homeland, after long 14 years. The citizens were too happy and lighten up the lanterns and fired the crackers. A huge celebration happened. As per the belief, it was the victory of good over bad. This festival indicates, the darkness fades away and light gets spread everywhere. In India, we celebrate Diwali with same enthusiasm and gift dear-ones something. So what are you thinking to gift yourself this Diwali?

This blog post is not about gifting yourself something common such as a new dress, jewelry, phone, etc. This Diwali, why don’t you gift something out of the box and one of the most vital things of your life. Confused?!. Let me share a few common behaviors first, very common ones. And think which one fits you. Fine?

I want to lose some weight, but it’s damn difficult to get out of the bed early and the whole day has a tight schedule. However, I don’t know how I manage to get all those foods which increase my fat and calories. 🙂
– Here, you also know there are many ways to exercise even without getting out of the bed early. For example, use the stairs instead of the elevator; go by walk to the nearer distance commute requirement; Squat when you get 2 mins; sit down instead of a chair; relax and meditate for 2 mins when you are having a break. You can try this and much more. Right?

I want to study hard and want to score great in the next examination. However, I am too tired today. I will start from tomorrow. Aw, that’s my favorite movie, let me watch as from tomorrow I have to study hard. 🙂
– Here, you also know tomorrow never comes, but next exam will come too soon. You have already watched the movie, so you can skip it for now. That actor has made his career, but you still have to. Right?

I seriously want to take my career to the next level. I want to achieve the biggest milestones in my industry. But, I don’t have any proper guidance. If I get right guidance, I can achieve victories. 🙂
The Eklavya had no mentor, still he excelled in using bow and arrows, as he was determined to. You have the access to “World Wide Web”. The experts are just right there to become your mentor. The knowledge is flooding the web. You can get expert training. What you need to do is just surf a little and get the right sources and communities. It’s not that hard. Right?

I want to spend quality time with my family, but I am so damn busy that just can’t make it. However, I had attended a team dinner as it was from the company and I had to go.
This is true, we all are busy in making our respective career. But, with a little time management and an determination will surely allow you to spend time with your family. For example, decide not to check emails/ messages every 10 mins when you are with family. You can check it at every 60-120 minutes, if you are expecting many important emails. This will give you the enough time to spend with your family. Right?

We all know what is stopping us from converting our dreams into reality. We all know what our weaknesses are and how can we overcome those. Still, we are giving excuses. To whom? To others? Neah. To our own selves.

This Diwali, let’s keep this habit of giving excuses to own-self behind. Select any one milestone. At least one. Make it your Dream. The dream which you want to gift yourself with a commitment to converting it into “The Reality”. Work harder and smarter. Surprise yourself by discovering your extraordinary capabilities. Next year gift yourself the “Milestone Achieved”.

So are you going to gift yourself something really special this Diwali? If yes, share this post with a caption, “I gifted a dream this Diwali” or something creative. Gift yourself! Enjoy Diwali! Happy Diwali!!
