One thing which should become your Religion to crack a Deal

Presentation and right timing are the attributes which can transform ordinary things to extra-ordinary. Take a look at the picture. Who would have thought, that a glimpse of a fisherman throwing a net in water would look so beautiful.

However, the photographer’s perspective (PRESENTATION & TIMING) was very apt. He transformed an ordinary routine moment into something wonderful.

The point here is :
Better the presentation, more likely you are to crack a deal. However more important to it is correct timing. One should know the precise moment when to pitch the presentation to gain the maximum advantage.

Freedom is birth right, but people are slave of emotions

Freedom is the birth right of every living being. There is always a constant endeavour going on amongst the living beings for freedom. Even the laws speak about freedom. It is the basic pillar of justice and equity. We all desire freedom in different ways. Be it freedom of speech, freedom of thoughts, freedom of identity, freedom of expression and so on.

However, the biggest freedom is freedom of self-belief. its about believing ourselves. its about letting our will flow. To convert our passion into something concrete. To purge dis-beliefs and enlighten ourselves with self-confidence. It is all about letting the thought process flow freely. We should focus our thought process in a constructive direction.

Thoughts are symbolised by the birds in the above picture. There is no limit to them as freedom is provided by the open sky. This picture portrays a wonderful message of letting the thoughts flow freely without limiting then to a particular space. Freedom of thought process can yield great outcomes.

freedom of sky

Sometimes it just happens that we are sheltered with a clouds of ignorance. It feels like we are just stuck and lack freedom of thoughts. Although we possess all the resources yet we are unable to make complete use of it. This is something which causes frustration and lack of confidence.

Another powerful message embedded in the above picture is the sarcasm about poor. Rather we can say the mindset of a constrained person. The person who becomes slave of his own emotions. The person who has vast opportunities available just like the open sky, yet who is strangled in the ropes of ignorance. The best thing for him is to break free. Leave the worries behind and let the thoughts flow freely.

NEVER UNDERESTIMATE

Often the people who are underestimated or undervalued turn out to be the dark horses. They not only win the races but also set the iconic trends. World is full of Example of such people like Sachin Tendulkar, Michael Jordan, Dhirubhai Ambani, Bill Gates, Lionel Messi, Steve Jobs, Albert Einstein and many more.

All we need to do first is self-evaluation. we need to initiate the concept of “AHM-BRAHMASMI” (‘अहम् ब्रह्मास्मि’). It means, I am part of the Universe and ‘Whatever is in the Universe, is present in me’.

Just take a look at the picture an outstanding message flows from it. i.e Talent has no correlation with what people perceive about you. It’s all about what you can exhibit and deliver. Just believe in yourself. Get going and initiate the plans. You have the power to enlighten. Just believe and flow free.

Be like a Full Moon, Value Yourself.

0

A view of the full moon is a beautiful and mesmerising sight. However a great lesson to be learned from it is : ” FREQUENCY of its APPEARANCE “ which is one of the crucial attribute which increases its importance.

The message here is that anything in excess is harmful i.e even if its our presence. The beauty of full moon is admired and is worthwhile to notice on the night of full moon. , Because it occurs after a reasonable interval. Had it been available all the time then it would had been reasonably undervalued.

Similar is the case with human psychology, too much of availability of anything and we tend to undervalue its importance. So the message here is to increase the quality of the appearances rather then its frequency.
