Power of Association!!! Eagle with Chickens
Few days back I have read a powerful story:-
Once on a mountainside tree there was an eagle nest with 4 large eagle eggs. One day, an earthquake rocked the mountain causing one of the eggs to roll down to a chicken farm, located in the valley below.
The Power of "What If"
Many people make resolutions on the first of January or any day of the year. But our mind starts asking us this “What if” questions:-
Do you want to Live the Life of Your Dreams? Think Like a 5 Year Old kid
Many people have beliefs like:- I can’t become Chartered Accountant. I can’t clear IIT entrance exam. I can’t do business. I want to ask you a question. When’s the last time you truly thought like a five-year old?
As children, we tend to believe that we truly can do anything we want. We have thoughts like: “I’m going to be an astronaut one day” or “When I grow up I’m going to be the Prime Minister.” But a funny thing happens: as you go to school, get a job, the world’s expectations and beliefs about us shrink our own beliefs.
The things we believed we could accomplish slowly start to fade away and become unfulfilled dreams.
Our dreams of becoming astronaut, president, Prime Minister or playing in a band never see their start because we begin listening to others and accept that these things won’t happen. Some of them are people we love, who love us back, but they have no idea what is possible because it isn’t their dream. Nevertheless, we follow the path they suggest, based on their own beliefs of what is possible.
So how do you push past your insecurities and start believing in yourself again? How do you take advantage of the endless possibilities available to you when your beliefs about yourself won’t let you take the first step?

What Are You Waiting For?
What are you waiting for? Do you want to make changes in your life? Do you constantly tell yourself that if things were different, you could do this and that? Nothing is going change, unless you initiate the change.
Why do we Procrastinate?
How many times have you told yourself that you will change your life, but ended doing nothing?
How many times have you been dissatisfied with some aspects of your life and decided to change them, but did not take action?
How to get rid of the Rat Race?
Are you living the life of your dreams? Are you often stressed out? Do you have the feeling that your life has become monotonous, that you're running from one task to another. Are you controlling your life or is life controlling you? Are you able to balance your professional and personal life?
Are Obstacles our best Friend?
When you are trying do something big, obstacles will appear. If you feel that a problem or obstacle you are facing is stronger than you, think again. There is nothing in your life that you cannot handle. You are really capable of handling so much more than you realize! Sure, there may be some obstacles and problems that can really shake you up, however, you must not let them stop your progress towards your success.
