In our last issue we spoke of being free by believing in ourselves and our capabilities. In this issue we would like to reflect on “Life” as the biggest Teacher – putting us through challenges, problems, situations, which constantly test our abilities and attributes.
September is also the month that we celebrate “Teachers’ Day” and hence … This is the day that we are meant to express our gratitude to all our Teachers, and, “LIFE” as all of you would agree … tops that list !!
We all have them. However at some point in life we all get stuck and feel the need to reach out to someone or somebody, who would help us get “Unstuck”! They would help us begin the journey from “Frustration and Confusion” to “Clarity and Results”. Who could be this partner to help us realize our full potential? Well the one stop shop to address these queries could be the COACH.
Coaching is about the marriage of a person’s potential with performance. The Coach, through a structured process facilitates and unleashes the potential within you and helps you gain clarity through a step by step action plan.
While every caution has been taken to provide my News Letter readers with most accurate information and honest analysis, please use your discretion before reaching any conclusions, after reading the below. When I came across this article, I found it thought provoking and hence have shared it with you. I have no intent to hurt religious sentiments or our ancient culture or history.
The difference between Nations is not the age of the Nation. This can be demonstrated by countries like India and Egypt which are over 2000 years old and are yet nowhere near some of the rich counties, in terms of wealth.
On the other hand countries like Canada, New Zealand and Australia are much wealthier as compared to the fact that they are less than 200 years old.
In 1923, nine of the wealthiest people in the world met at Chicago ‘s Edgewater Beach Hotel.
Their combined wealth, it is estimated, exceeded the wealth of the Government of the United States at that time.
These men certainly knew how to make a living and accumulate wealth. Attending the meeting were the following men:
One reason dreams never come true is that we don’t have a system in place to work towards them. I would like to encourage you to dream and here are some steps to help you attain them.
What is your dream? Everything begins in the heart and mind. Obviously, your dream has to be an legally attainable one. Every great achievement began in the mind of one person. They dared to dream, to believe that it was possible. “What if?” is the kind of dream you should be dreaming. Think big and don’t settle for average. Don’t let negative thinking discourage you. Dream of the possibilities for yourself, your family, and for others. Don’t let past hurts or disappointments restrain you.
There is no reality, only perception. I’ve heard it said that if you want to change your life then you have to change the way you perceive life. For example, if ten of us are eyewitnesses to an automobile accident and we are asked to recall the details, there would be ten slightly different versions of what happened. What we “see” depends on what filters we have operating in our lives

All of you at some point in your life would have heard this story and in fact shared it with your siblings, children or employees.
I would like to share a real life very recent story of a woman (let us call her Shilpa), who with a little encouragement is today working with an MNC.
I met Shilpa when I was doing a series of trainings for an MNC on Personality Development. Whenever called to give a presentation or talk about something, she used to stammer, fidget, forget what she needed to say. During the breaks, however, whenever we used to chat, I found her to be extremely intelligent and a star performer during her school days.

After reading the article, we invite your feedback. If you have a story to share on this topic, we would love to hear it.
