Mind Games

In the common parlance, mind games are referred to as someone trying to get control over your behaviour and actions through manipulating your mind.

That is the old adage. It requires a really, really weak person from within to be wanting to control others. Don’t get angry with them, forgive them. They are already piled up with a lot of hurt beyond our imaginations.

Let us devise a new mind game. Very interesting. Whenever a human being tries to control you or does something which you know is fundamentally incorrect, take time to reflect and get into their mind. They are really fighting so many battles, that the outside battle is just the tip of the iceberg. Have some empathy for them. Their anger is simply a cry for empathy.

Btw, you know what, this is the only mind game where you are assured of win-win.


You feel stuck?

Forgive yourself darling, just learn the lessons and be loving to yourself.

We all do make mistakes which sometimes make us have a sense of disbelief in ourselves. This ultimately results in lack of love for the most beautiful human: the one in the mirror.

You deserve to be loved even when you don’t deserve it.

Unless you are filled within, what are you going to offer to the world?

The measure of your greatness

Your greatness is defined by:

  • whether or not you talk about people on their back.
  • how quickly do you let go of trivia (and the big things).
  • the incessant amounts of practice that you put into creating wondrous levels of craft ever produced
  • your awareness of the weaknesses in here and not out there, so that you could control what is possible
  • how quickly you forgive yourself (Being on the journey of greatness never meant that you were not going to make mistakes. It simply meant that you will be equally, if not more, humble with yourself as you do for the mistakes of everyone around you.)
  • you focus on what is right for you and let go of the judgement of others, knowing that every human being is on their own journey of transformation, and are doing their best as per what they know…..the only reason people give us pain in any form is because they are themselves going through a bigger pain
  • you love with an open heart, and then put a big fence around it.
  • making yourself more superproductive every single day and then balancing that out with long rest is one of your nature

Oh and btw, do not think by any means that your greatness is not defined by the money you make. Of course it is, provided you are earning blessings along with that money, and the money is being used for a greater good: yours and of the world.

Love is all you need

So do we. What we all need from you is to do what you love. Do that which fills you up with joy and peace of contributing to the world.

Here is the caveat: you cannot deliver your superbest creativity to the world if you are living your days smothering your dreams and fulfilling someone else’s.

For each one of us to be uplifted by your example and inspired by you to see the love and devotion to all that you produce into the world, please do what you love.

Do what you love.

If it is not something that you do right now, how about spending a few minutes each day and 5 hours over the weekend, instead of exploring the next new pizza outlet? What say?

Is it going to be easy? Nah… Is it something that you are going to enjoy? Definitely.

Years and decades will pass anyway. What you do between those, defines your legacy.

Never lose hope

Sometimes the only person who will believe in you is you. Sometimes when all the hopes go away, you need to trust that the hand of the Infinite, or God, is always with you. The life that we are living today, and every second of our working days, is the infinite blessing that we all have.

Being caught in the daily rut of things may make us forget that. Which is where we lose our magic. What would happen if we were grateful for every moment of the living days that we are blessed with? Would difficulties not arise? Of course they will, and with those difficulties, you will have the internal strength to find out what is the magic going on here that will make you more powerful from hereon. Life is a game of seasons. Sometimes it is spring and sometimes it is autumn. There is nothing to feel bad about it. Thinking it is spring in autumn is not positive thinking. Donning warm clothes on yourself during autumn and making the best of weather happily and cheerfully is positive thinking and positive doing. Isn’t it?

No one, not even the Supreme Court has the power to reverse whatever has happened to us so far. The good news is, your past and the present have absolutely no relevance to what your future holds for you. Let us be honest about it: every single human being, has faced at least one situation in their life wherein they were completely shattered and they came out of it better and stronger. The chapter of Persistence in Napoleon Hill’s book Think and Grow Rich is one of the master chapters of the book. It reminds us to be the child that we were: no matter how many times did we fell down, eventually we did get up and start walking and eventually running superfast. Was this visible when you first started to crawl? I bet it wasn’t. Did you envision that you will walk? Of course you did. Through persistence, through never say die attitude, through being relentlessly relentless, such seemingly impossible task is your reflex action now.

Here is a story I want you to consider: once a seminar attendee told that he had decided multiple times to not to get angry thereafter. However, he was not able to sustain that decision with him during any of those times.

Could you see the narrative? The story this human being had told himself was that he won’t be able to sustain what good decision he had made. This narrative was driving his entire life. What would happen if this guy changed his narrative and decided that he will be calm and stable no matter what happens, and he will sustain this decision?

What if you and I could change the stories that we have been unconsciously telling ourselves? How would your deliverables be affected if once you decided, you achieved that thing no matter what the reality was being offered?

You just need to decide my friend. Be full of knowledge and awareness that decision moves mountains. Optimism and faith provides fuel to it. Massive action assures it. Believing and seeing the unseen conceives and protects it.

Bonus point: Difficult times arrive only to those who dare to move out of the normal and try to change the world. There is going to be no noise up there in the mountains and you can easily meditate metaphorically speaking. Come, be a meditator as tough and relentless as you, amidst the chaos and hurt souls of the world. Come, be the hope-full, not hopeless hope 🙂

Being amazing

Being amazing means much more than being amazing. Simple.

We are here to protect ourselves and at the same time, open our hearts to the world. Give your love, you, happiness, divinity, joy freely to the world, once you know the boundaries of the fence that no one is supposed to intrude into.

Most of the tasks in our life are striking the balance between the two. Creation of a world class empire within and without, comes at a cost. So does being a victim.

Be. Devote yourself to being you. There lie all the roots of amazing.
