Can a person be at peace and at war, both at the same time?
Can a person become a ‘peaceful warrior?
After reading Dan Millman’s book: The Way of a peaceful warrior, my answer is ‘Yes’
One of my friends recommended me to watch the movie: The Peaceful Warrior when I posted top three motivational movies on this blog (you can read about three motivational movies from this link: http://wp.me/pHUHq-fz)
The book is based on a real life story of an athlete who suffers with an accident and his leg is broken.
This book (or you may watch the movie if you want) is about a young person who meets a mentor called Socrates at a gas station. His mentor teaches him to be at peace with himself first rather than fighting a war. He gives him practical guidance to walk on the path of focus. Even after meeting a major accident, that young person is able to become athlete again. It is a must watch if you want to get motivated to achieve big in life.
The Author of the book has claimed: The book that changes lives!
In this post, I would like to share three ideas from this book:
1. We should live in present
No tension of past or no worry of the future – only present!
Some one said: You cannot change your past but you can certainly destroy your present by worrying about the future.
A peaceful warrior is at peace in the given moment. A peaceful warrior is present in whatever he or she is doing. I remember another great saying: Past is gone, future is yet to come, you are blessed with a gift of current moment – that is why it is called: PRESENT!
2. Happiness is the name of a journey not destination
It may happen that we get what we wanted but after that, we feel empty!
One should enjoy the path – the journey of life – every moment of it.
3. Have solitude and discover what is inside us
A peaceful warrior spends time in silence and tries to discover one self. One of the difficult tasks is to be at peace and harmony with oneself i.e. to discover the inner self!
Once a person is silent and tries to ‘listen’ to the voice of silence, peace is achieved which comes from within. (Who can change you? Here is an interesting post: http://wp.me/pHUHq-9F)
Message of the day: Let’s live in the present!
Have you heard about rich people who are not happy at times?
Do you know about those people who have a very good job, they are earning well but complaining that they are not happy?
Who is a wealthy person? Do you think that a person is wealthy when he or she has lots and lots of money?
I think there is more to wealth than money only.
We all are wealthy in one way or the other. Really – Believe me!
In my view, a wealthy person is always happy. Why?
Because there are seven types of wealth:
How can we distinguish big thinkers from small thinkers?
By listening to their vocabulary and words they use.
Listen to people around you and concentrate on the words they are using.
Just try ‘listening to others’ for one day and will help us to understand that positive people use positive words.
Big thinkers are specialists in creating positive, forward-looking, optimistic pictures in their own minds and the mind of others.
To think big, we must use words and phrases which produce big and positive mental images. How can we develop the big thinker’s vocabulary? Here are four ideas on how can we use big thinkers’ vocabulary: Read the rest of this entry »

I always thought that a person should work hard, earn more and grow rich.
However, Napoleon Hill suggests that first, change your thinking if you want to earn money and become rich. Once ‘organized thinking’ is cultivated, achievement of the goal to beome rich turns easier! Do you believe this?
Generally it is considered that being rich means being wealthy i.e. having lots of money. However, in the all time best-selling book: Think and grow rich, Mr. Hill has advocated that all the blessings of almighty including our ability to work, a sense of happiness, joy, peace of mind, strength, courage, wisdom and of course money – all are ‘riches’ and hence, one can achieve richness by ‘thinking’ first and then working towards them.
Think and grow rich is the book which took 25 years in making!
Story of the book is quite fascinating. Read the rest of this entry »

Habit 1: Always exceed expectation
Self made millionaires always exceed expectations. There are three kinds of people at work: Those who meet expectation, those who exceed expectation and those who do just what they are told to do. People who exceed expectations add value to any organization wherever they work.

Don’t just sit and watch things happening – Be the change you want to see! Read the rest of this entry »
