Came across a blog & this story snatched my mind. Hope it does the same to you. Happy Reading


On the best sunny day, the most powerful magnifying glass will not light paper if you keep moving the glass. But if you focus and hold it, the paper will light up. That is the power of concentration.

A man was traveling and stopped at an intersection. He asked an elderly man, "Where does this road take me?" The elderly person asked, "Where do you want to go?" The man replied, "I don't know." The elderly person said, "Then take any road. What difference does it make?"

How true. When we don't know where we are going, any road will take us there.

Suppose you have all the football eleven players, enthusiastically ready to play the game, all charged up, and then someone took the goal post away. What would happen to the game? There is nothing left. How do you keep score? How do you know you have arrived?

Enthusiasm without direction is like wildfire and leads to frustration. Goals give a sense of direction. Would you sit in a train or a plane without knowing where it was going? The obvious answer is no. Then why do people go through life without having any goals?

Very nice. Absolutely. Goals are the first and the most important step in the direction of success. Most people do not set goals because they never grew up in an environment where parents set goals and taught their kids to set goals.

I like to motivate people to set goals. I've done workshops in the past only centered around motivating people to set goals:

Past Events

I help you achieve your goals. If you can tell me what it is you want, I can show you how to get it.

Thank you All.
NLP means Neuro Linguistic Programming. It talks how one can influence ones mind to do things which they find it impossible or difficult. Like loosing a habbit, being always charged especially during a event like interview, presentation etc. It talks about how your can train your brain to achieve things.
Thank you for sharing what you do. However I'd say that the post is for reading & not for promoting what one does. There are different forums where one can do that. Please dont mind but a request.
