I agree...and thanks for conveying such an important such a simplistic manner...
ACTION PLAN..or simply put 'Action'.....jumping to grab the opportunity...
Yes, we wait for good things to come to us.... We/I would also wait for the trainer to come..all the put the 500 rupee note in my hand..
so yes, we are lazy!
Need to put in some action

A different variation of the story is this:
When the speaker SHOWED a new note of RS. 500 many came forward to grab it. The Speaker then crumpled it and keeping it in his hand, asked, "who want it?" Only a few hands went up! Then the speaker further crumpled it and folded it many times and threw it on the floor and asked, "Who wants it?". Very few hands went up!! Finally he put a little water on the note, put a little ink on it and then asked, "Who want this Rs. 500 note?" Only three or four hands went up!!!
I leave it to the intelligent Cite HRians to come out on what they infer or think about this. Awaiting your response...

Evey thing has its limitations so above story has too.
I think every one has his own opinion and you also has it.
take the message of story if you think it in other perspective then you got other views.
so in which sense you want see the world you can see that only.
I think story is good in that perspective!!

The article was truly motivational indeed. But incidentally what i observed from both the event are the "gurus" could lay hands on only 500 rupees note and more so a 1000 rupees note. So rich they are. All they require is a strong communication skill to captivate the audience, that's it and their bank balance keep growing. I m not blaming anyone for this. In fact i had a great chance to listen to a few of them like Mr. RangaRajan (Frozen Thoughts), Swami Sukabodhananda, Amritanandamayi and our very own Swami (xxxxx) from Chennai, who got into affair with an actress.

Rajan, was truly inspiring, his lectures are truly thought provoking. He renders them free of cost. The other three, i should say are only money spinners. Though i personally did not pay (once my friend paid for me, and another one was a part of our training program), i thought it was a truly waste of money and time. They charge so exorbitantly to render something they call "Spiritual". I truly laughed at myself and stopped attending any such lectures especially after that swami of chennai was arrested.

Dear Meenakshi,

Though you have deviated from the main topic, your point calls for observation from other members.

Most of these spiritual leaders, it appears, are money minded. I fully agree with you. Perhasp, except Ramana Maharshi and the Senior Shankaracharya of Kanchi Kamakoti Mutt, Rambhapuri Jagadguru (as far as I know;there may be still a few of them) who are true spiritual gurus and did not even look at the money, others falls short of peoples expectations. I have heard people commenting even on Sri Sri Ravishankar also, where for AOL the charges are very high and run on commercial lines. That is why people are losing interest in these Swmijis!! and in spiritualism!These gurus are supposed to set an example to others and lead by example! But all are only preachers, no practitioners!! Mahatma Gandhi had also a tremendous will power and followed what he preachedThat is why his photo is printed on currency notes. Anna Hazare belongs to this generation of Mahatma Gandhi and has transformed his village beyond expectations. We, the trainers have a responsibility to tell such inspiring stories about these outstanding but few people to students and participants and inspire them. Even if one or two trainees follows them, we should consider that a great achievement! We should search for such rare people who lead by example and tell about them to trainees and motivate them to emulate these rare-to-find but true leaders. I do hope trainers of this forum will do that to the best of their ability and become a true change agents. M.J. SUBRAMANYAM, BANGALORE
