    Whats something you know you do differently than most people?

    A story was shared of an old man who wanted to spade his potato garden, but owing to his old age, he could not. His only son, who would have helped him out, was in prison. The old man wrote a letter to his son and mentioned his predicament. Dear Son, Its unfortunate you are no longer here with me to help out because it looks like I wont be able to plant my potato garden this year. I hate to miss doing the garden because your mother always loved planting time. Im just getting too old to be digging up a garden plot. If you were here, it would have been easier because I know you would dig the plot for

    me, any ways, hope is not lost. Ill be doing the little I can till your release. Love Dad.

    Shortly after, the old man received a telegram which says: For Heavens sake, Dad, dont dig up the garden! Thats where I buried the guns! At very early the next morning, a dozen of detectives and local police officers showed up and dug up the entire garden without finding any guns. Confused, the old man wrote another note to his son telling him what had happened, and asked if truly he hid any gun but the son reply was: Go ahead and plant your potatoes,

    Dad. Its the best and only way I thought i could help you out even while Im in detention.

    Moral: Never allow circumstance to limit you in any way, no matter how tight the situation may be.

    One of the most unacceptable words in the corporate world is Comfort Zone. Some people may look forward to it but nobody accepts this. Because comfort zone seems to be synonymous with laziness, laid back attitude etc. Many a times we are not able to differentiate between comfort zone and safety zone.

    We all are in a competitive world and here everybody is trying to outdo the other. Competitive world encourages words like aggression, differentiation, growth etc. There is nothing wrong in it.

    What is wrong then? The way we understand the comfort zone is wrong. Comfort zone is not

    always comfortable as per popular perception. In competitive scenario where growth is the objective there is a thin line difference between comfort zone and safety zone.

    Safety zone is where you can be safe; not necessarily comfortable. Mountaineers understand this effectively. They know their safety zone very well. They know that even if they would like to go forward, even though they want to achieve their goals yet they need to stick to their safety zone.

    No matter how uncomfortable it may be but they know that leaving the safety zone is dangerous. It can sabotage the whole journey. So they stay in their safety zone

    till the right time comes. Once the right time comes, dangers are not life threatening they resume their journey.

    Organizations and individuals must know the thin line difference between comfort zone and safety zone. A detailed appreciation and understanding of your safety zone can be instrumental for exceptional growth in the long term.

    Becoming Happy To Being Happy

    Sadhguru Jaggi Vasudev (an Indian mystic) often tells a joke to emphasize on the importance of right philosophy to lead life. I am sure you will enjoy reading it. It gives us a message which we should always remem-ber.

    It once happened, on a certain day, a bull and a pleasant were grazing on the field. The bull was grazing on the grass, the pheas-ant was picking ticks off the bull; they were partners, you know?

    Then the pheasant looked at a huge tree which was at the edge of the field. The bull was grazing on the grass and very nostalgi-cally said, Alas, there was a time when I could fly to top most of the branch of the tree, but today I do not have the enough strength

    to fly even to the first branch of the tree.

    The bull very nonchalantly said, Thats no problem! Eat a little bit of my dung every day, you will see; within a fortnight, you will reach the top of the tree.

    The pheasant said, Oh, come of it! How is that possible?

    The bull replied, Really, just try and see it yourself. The whole humanity is on it, you could try, too.

    Very hesitantly, the pheasant started pecking at the dung, on the very first day it reached the first branch of the tree. In a fortnights time, it reached the topmost branch of the tree. It just went and sat on the branch and enjoyed the scenery. The old farmer saw a fat old pheasant on the top of the

    tree. He took his shotgun and shot the pheasant off the tree.

    Moral of the story is that even bullshit can get you to the top, but never lets you stay there for long.So, if you are seeking a life of ful-filment, joy, peace and wellbeing within yourself, dont try to fool yourself in some way. You must do the right things, otherwise it wont work.

    Being Creative and Innovating Ourselves - Alisha Jain

    Creativity and Innovation are the hot buzz words these days and every other day, we hear or read a lot about the technological boom through creativity and innovation to meet the needs of the fast changing world.

    Here we need to ask ourselves why we always tend to think about creativity and innovation to bring the change in the world and not in ourselves. It may sound difficult or different to you, but its very simple, some somersaults and twists in your thinking pattern may help us to be more creative and innovative with ourselves.

    There is no second thought that we all at some point of time get stuck in our life and bound ourselves because we start presuming that this is the only way of living our life. Here we need to understand

    that, as todays world is changing and needing the renewal or correction of errors. In the same manner, we also need a complete new approach, pattern or a fresh perspective for living our life and doing the things.

    No doubt many people dream of life-changing personal innovation, but never take the necessary steps or actions to make it happen and reasons can be many. Sometimes family circumstances or the fear of risk that stops them. And thats very unfortunate when we look back in our lives and have a regret, why I havent tried new things in my life.

    Recently, I came across an article on Facebook where three ladies went on a journey of their lifetime. The trio drove 17 different countries from New Delhi to London in 97 days with

    the aim to create the awareness of women empowerment. They not only dared to give wings to their childhood dream but also took the right action that leads them to innovate their own life in a better way. And this is only possible when we become fearless to attempt something different and unique every time like a child who fearlessly explore, play and express themselves.

    So, are you ready for your first step to be creative and innovative with yourself?

    Be Optimistic!!
