Self-Aggrandizers: Wake-Up!

“Enlightenment is ego’s ultimate disappointment.” 
– Chogyam Trungpa

The corporate corridors are chockfull of Self-aggrandizers.

The self-absorbed professionals, menacingly proclaiming their own exaggerated importance, power, or reputation. They evaluate their prominence by the immensity and pull of their fiefdom. Their ego surreptitiously entraps them tightly. Even brilliant professionals, unknowingly reach to a stage where they stop listening to any inputs. They strongly and only believe in their own views.They severely suffer from a ghoulish “I-Me-Mine” syndrome.

The unappealing manifested symptoms of such distorted tendencies are so obvious and all around at our work places. Today, it is almost like an epidemic. The only branded method of decreeing our dominance over others. At times, it is masked and tacitly refined. In certain cases, the magnified individuality, also genuinely drive them crazy so as to show off their supremacy to others. When professionals are so obsessed with their own gainful projections, they are likely to misplace their focus on expected role commitments.

“Enter your inner self in order to see the life you desire.”

–Aniekee Tochukwu

Why knowing yourself is not your first priority?

We are most terrified of visiting our own self. So, many of us go through each day events, reacting and focusing on everything else, but to take a conscious inward journey by delving much deeper. Even if we do, our quest for soul searching is surprisingly a booby-trapped pursuit. I believe that a sincere deep inner journey can possibly swing the hard ground underneath, but it can also open up whole new revelation of our submerged potentials. Why not? In fact, we are born to make manifestation of the splendour of our deepest light that is within us. Our personality is reflection of our inner self. We are meant to shine in this world. It is our life force that makes us find reasons to get up in the morning for doing something meaningful!

Resonance of our choice…!

When You Blame Others, You Give Up Your Power To Change…!

How could anyone get anything important done if they didn’t plan to get anything important done? You couldn’t leave the important things in life to accident.

Yes! Attitude Matters.

Very recently my car met with an accident.

Fortunately, there were no major injuries. Driver escaped the wreck unscathed. However, the entire front bonnet, head-lights, left front door and panel of my vehicle were savagely smashed. Somehow, driver managed to drive the car to our apartment parking. Undeniably, I was utterly disconcerted and staggered to see the mutilation of my lovely car. When I was agitatedly staring at the car, my wife also arrived at the parking. Seeing me highly distressed, she laughed and said, “Now that we have a beautifully wrecked car, ether we can be distressed about it or be happy about it. We cannot alter the reality, so let’s choose to be cheerful.”

After a short pause I managed a smile and said. “Yeah, you are right, look we are already late for our delicious lunch.”…And we laughed together.

I have amusingly left behind that event and I still don’t have a new car..!

It is only when you truly letting go of the past that you are truly open to receive the joy. Our choice is a judgement or directive, which will have a lasting impression on our mental wellness. Such choices, actually play an essential role in modelling our life values.

Yes! Attitude Matters. Continue reading

This is who I am…!

The merit of originality is not novelty; it is sincerity.

-Thomas Carlyle


 Life will never be perfect, no matter how hard we try.

Yes,we know it well. 

Yet, why we feel so miserable most of the time…!

May be because we all the time want to please someone or everyone...We want to be everything to everyone. We all the time want to meet other people’s expectations.Unfortunately, such expectations unconsciously take on a life of their own.

We are swayed by the channels of possibilities…because this is what everyone is expecting from us.We maneuver hard to get qualified in the eyes of others. We are obsessed to seek approvals. Our search is for acknowledgments. All what we do is for others. Today we are chasing a world which is literally edging-out our true self. Ironically, our so called projected front is full of synthetic content. It is a never ending rat-race of living up to what we think other people expect from us. Such enslavement to other’s endorsement thwarts the full expression of the real self from being out in open. Moreover, our very decision to continuously oblige their expectations reinforces them to force-fit us in their mould. We are not a label on a billboard. So stop trying so much. There are most definitely many out there who do not like YOU or what you DO.

Divine Dance of Spirituality: A Mystical Ignition to Professionalism!

You have to grow from the inside out. None can teach you, none can make you spiritual. There is no other teacher but your own soul.

Kasauli in Himachal Pradesh… at peak of Gilbert trail … splendour of a radiant sunset… Like a glowing face of God…!

You may feel sceptical that I am touching upon a theme which has a very insignificant believability in corporate corridors. Yet, I personally value it as a powerful multifaceted inclusive phenomenon. It brings people closer. An unprejudiced and unconditional experience of celebrating connectedness. It is arduous to delimit spirituality in words…but it is very much there ‘within’ as an experience. Perhaps, spirituality for some is meditation and prayers. Or personal values and excellence at work. Or may be obligation towards organization and team members. Or doing socially responsible business. We all have different interpretation for the same concept. So, let me attempt to take you through the journey of synchronised higher human awakening.

We all want to know how spirituality kindles within us…!
