MORE IDEAS FROM THE BOOK
When things are beyond your control and there is nothing you can do, why worry?
As you become successful, do not forget the keys to happiness
Having a friend to listen to your problems and discuss them with you is the beginning of finding a solution.
We must find positivity in the bleakest situations and live by the principle of gratitude.
Stop and reflect on your life regularly. Pressing the pause button to practice gratitude is the way to make it a constant in your life.
Spiritual practice is the foundation of our happiness. It guides us in times of turmoil and grounds us in times of joy.
Category 1: Losers
People who always see negative in everything and put in the least amount of effort or no effort at all. They are least bothered about what is happening around them. They will only crib and complain about how the world is. They will say something like –
Category 2: Comforters
These are the people who get comfortable in life and put in minimal efforts to stay afloat. These people just focus on hitting targets. Even if they fall short, it does not bother them. Be it in job, business or health. They will set a goal of losing 5 kg but will settle even if they reduce weight by 2 kg. They will prefer going for movies, hanging out with friends, relaxing on the couch over the weekend instead of reading a book or watching educational videos. They will ask their friends to shut up if they give them advice on work, business or how to become successful. They will label others as “Kitabi Keeda (Nerd), Padhaku, Studious, Loser” etc but in reality, they themselves are semi-losers. They will say something like:
Comforters try to console themselves by telling themselves that they are doing good, or that they are better than others. They always have an excuse for not doing something or not being able to achieve something. They are happy with what they have.
Category 3: Averagers
These are the people who do what they are supposed to do, sometimes creating small success, meeting their goals, or keeping bosses happy. They work hard or pretend to be working hard when it is required for the company or doing what is required for business. They could be on the top 5 performers list. They may read a book once a while if their friends suggest or they may watch some motivational video, but that drive soon fades away, and they go back to their average lives. They have many pending books to read. They buy books but don’t finish them. They would say something like :
Category 4: Unstoppables
These are the people who take massive action. They create remarkable success very often. Winning is a habit for them. They are addicted to success. They are looked upon by others as extraordinary humans. They are the people who work extra hours and know how to work smart. Management loves them because they are highly productive. They are people who have started their own businesses and committed to making it big someday. They read books very often, go to seminars, hang out with leaders, have big goals, will be well known for something great, their family loves them but sometimes they are too busy with work. They inspire others to come out of their comfort zone. They become a benchmark for people around them. People tell them things like: slow down; your goals are unrealistic; you are crazy; you are studious; etc. This is what they say:
It is far from being a gift a lucky few have. It can be trained: By exposing kids to tones and challenging them to match them before age 4, they can develop perfect pitch for the rest of their life. Even adults can learn some of this, though there is some brain plasticity at that young age that makes it easier.
So did the young Mozart have a gift for perfect pitch? Yes and no. If Mozart had been raised in some other family without exposure to music—or without enough of the right sort of exposure—he would certainly have never developed that ability at all.
