At the end of life, Money<Life! We spend all our life running after green paper and on our last time, realise that it wasn’t the thing you really needed. Actually, “I wish, I didn’t work so hard” is the second most popular regret that people had on their deathbed, after “I wish I had been true to myself” which simply tells us that what matters in life is not the temporary fame or fulfilment, but the long-run love, satisfaction & Happiness.
Whenever I am not sure about choosing between a high paying job and a job I love, I ask myself a simple question that What will I get? If I chosen the “High Paying” job, it will get me more money, more money means more satisfaction, security & power which will lead to a happy & fulfilled life. Right? Wrong! Because that job will also cost me my family, friends & me time along the death of many of my talents & dreams leading to a life which look good from upside, but has an emptiness inside. In the other case, if I got the job I love, I would pursue my dreams & talents, get more time for myself and lead a life which maybe, only maybe is less luxury but way more satisfying & beautiful, both from inside & outside.
In the end, I will just leave you with this quote of Billionaire Steve Jobs, “Being the richest man in the cemetery doesn’t matter to me. Going to bed at night saying we’ve done something wonderful… that’s what matters to me.”

Can money buy happiness? Yes! But conditions apply
First, according to science, when a person starts earning above an average estimated income, he starts losing the greed or fun that he thought he will get when he wished for that income. Just like that toy which you wanted most, but you lose interest when you actually get it along time. So, Yes! The Money will give you a kind of happiness which will also be a limited period offer! At the end of life, Money<Life! We spend all our life running after green paper and on our last time, realise that it wasn’t the thing you really needed. Actually, “I wish, I didn’t work so hard” is the second most popular regret that people had on their deathbed, after “I wish I had been true to myself” which simply tells us that what matters in life is not the temporary fame or fulfilment, but the long-run love, satisfaction & Happiness.

When the SWACH BHARAT CAMPAIGN started, it brought in a lot of Awareness in our society about keeping our environment clean. It was great to see people from all walks of life cleaning the garbage on the road and keeping their surroundings clean. It was a great campaign and we should definitely clean the garbage around us for our well-being and the well-being of society :-) But, have you ever wondered about SWACH (Me) ? I personally believe that if I am clean inside, I will definitely maintain cleanliness outside :-) Let us go a little deeper into this subject. When I talk about being "clean inside", I don't mean brushing my teeth, etc. I mean, have I looked deep inside of me and try to change my Negatives into Positives? It’s easy to preach to others to change, but it takes a lot of Courage, Strength, Willingness & Humility to change ourselves. In my 50 years of my life I have come across only one man who has the humility and the willingness to change himself – Once a year he goes to his wife and asks her to tell him his strengths & weaknesses, because he wants to be a better husband. Then he goes to his daughter and asks her to tell him his strengths & weaknesses because he wants to be a better father. After that he goes to his close friend and asks him to tell him his strengths & weaknesses, because he wants to be a better person. WOW :-) He keeps on trying to be A BETTER HUMAN BEING :-) BIBLE - The sinful nature of a human being wants to do evil, which is just the opposite of what God wants. And God gives us desires that are the opposite of what the sinful nature desires. These two forces are constantly fighting each other, so you are not free to carry out your good intentions. When you follow the desires of your sinful nature, the Negative Qualities are : Jealousy Outbursts of anger Sexual immorality Impurity Lustful pleasures Sorcery Hostility Quarreling Selfish ambition Dissension Division Envy, Drunkenness Wild parties Getting angry and reacting fast Reaching a place late Laziness Carrying unforgiveness towards people Impatience Intolerance towards people Being abusive Being rude Low self esteem Hatred Addictions Watching pornography Being non-assertive Being irresponsible Arrogance Pride, etc But, Godly Living produces Positive Qualities like : Love Joy Peace Patience Kindness Goodness Faithfulness Gentleness Self-control Assertiveness Forgiving others Tolerance Compassion Non-judgmental Respect for others Holy lifestyle Helping and serving others Responsible Purity of heart High self esteem Self-control Humility, etc (Galatians 5:17, 19-22) If I really want the BEST out of life, why don't I give my BEST to life ? In other words, why don't I introspect and see which are the areas I need to change in myself? What are my weaknesses ? Once I am aware of my weaknesses and I make an EFFORT to change my Weaknesses into Strengths, that's what I call as SWACH (Me) and that is GODLY WISDOM :-) And once you start cleaning your inside and change your Negatives into Positives, then automatically you will be : A Better Husband A Better Wife A Better Daughter A Better Son A Better Father A Better Mother A Better Student A Better Teacher A Better Brother A Better Sister A Better Employee A Better Manager A Better Businessman A Better Boss, etc OVERALL YOU WILL BE A BETTER HUMAN BEING :-) And once you are a Good Human Being on the inside, then naturally you will not throw garbage outside. you will not judge people. you will not be rude with others, etc. Let's take this as a Challenge. Let's introspect ourselves and change our Weaknesses into Strengths :-) How do we do this Exercise ? Its very simple - Sit down in a quiet place with a notebook and a pen. Then introspect yourself and go deep into your nature and see which are your Good and Bad Qualities and write them down. After writing down all your Good and bad Qualities in the notebook, have a look at it. When you see your Good Qualities in the notebook, pat yourself at the back and appreciate yourself :-) And when you see the Bad Qualities in the notebook, make a note of it and change those Bad Qualities into Good Qualities :-) Change those Weaknesses into Strengths :-) Yes, you cannot change overnight. But, MAKE A START. Remember, any Habit, whether Good or Bad, is formed with Practice. So, if you start Changing your Weaknesses into Strengths and keep on and on and on and on working on it, then one day will come that you will become AN AWESOME HUMAN BEING, having AN AWESOME PERSONALITY :-) And whatever work you do, it will be EXCELLENT and you will PROSPER in every area of your Life :-) You will Prosper in your education, job, business, health, relationships, finances, etc :-) THEN YOU WILL BE HAPPY, THE PEOPLE AROUND YOU WILL BE HAPPY, GOD WILL BE HAPPY WITH YOU & THE WHOLE ENVIRONMENT AROUND YOU WILL CHANGE FOR THE BETTER :-) You will SHINE and INDIA will SHINE like a DIAMOND for the Glory of God :-) NOTE : I am a Counselor, so if you need guidance on how to change your weaknesses into strengths, then feel free to msg me on my WhatsApp No, 9880162325 and I will guide you.

BE GRATEFUL 🙏 The qualification that gave you a job is the same qualification someone has who still does not have a job. Be grateful. The prayer that God answered for you is the same prayer others have been praying but without success. Be grateful. The road you use safely on a daily basis is the same road where many others lost their precious lives. Be grateful. The temple in which God blessed you is the same temple other people too worship in, yet their lives are still in discord. Be grateful. The bed you used in the hospital, you got healed and were discharged is the same bed many other people breathed their last. Be grateful. The rain that made your field produce good crops is the same rain that devastated someone else's field. Be grateful. Be grateful because whatever you have is not by...your power, your might, your talent or your qualifications.. but it's just the "Grace of God." HE is the giver of everything you have... For everything you have... Be Grateful 🙏 God bless, Amit
URGENT NEED FOR TAKING LIFE-SKILLS WORKSHOP IN SCHOOLS & COLLEGES I have often spoken to School & College Principals about organising a Life-Skills Workshop in their Instititution. When I talk with the School & College Management, I tell them the Importance of this Workshop and I give them examples like "How do you tell a child to focus on his studies when his father is beating his mother in the house everyday under the influence of alcohol"? OR "How do you tell a teenager to focus on his or her studies when he or she is going through a relationship problem"? And then I tell them that along with academics, we need to equip our students and youth with Appropriate Life-Skills to handle all issues of life Positively, then they will be able to focus better on their studies and their grades will improve. So, keeping that in mind, I take Life-Skills Workshops at Schools/Colleges/Management Institutes with regards to problems faced by the youth.The topics that I cover are: smoking / drugs/ alcohol low self esteem difference between infatuation & love relationship issues like possessiveness, how to handle breakups, peer pressure assertiveness how to overcome hurts consequences of unforgiveness moral values positive attitude decision making negative effects of anxiety how to overcome fear harmful effects of pornography prevention of suicides leadership qualities fear of rejection negative emotions and their effect on health therapeutic effects of forgiveness overcoming childhood hurts having a winning attitude marriage tips & an insight into parenting skills, etc. I have already taken these Life-Skills Workshops & Sessions on the above-mentioned topics in the following colleges: Christ University St. Joseph College Cathedral PU College National Law School of India University BTL Institute of Technology Francis De Sales College Oxford College CMR Institute of Technology MARC School of Business Andhra Loyola Institute of Engineering & Technology Mt. Carmel Institute of Management, etc. This Lifeskills Workshop will equip the students with the RIGHT LIFE-SKILLS TOOLS to handle all issues of life Positively and will help them to be HAPPY & SUCCESSFUL in Life :-) My aim in life is that everyone should be equipped with PROPER LIFE-SKILLS to handle all their Personal & Professional issues of Life POSITIVELY and receive GOD'S ABUNDANT BLESSINGS :-) I had taken a 6 Hour Workshop on all youth–related issues entitled “Winning is an Attitude” at Andhra Loyola Institute of Engineering & Technology on 10th November, 2012. The Press and the Journalists from The Hindu had also come to the college to cover the Program and they published it in the Hindu Newspaper on 12th November, 2012.
