Great men lessons

  2. 2.  We often wish for peace from the external source, emphasize on circumstances to make us happy, and take shelter in some lame phrases :  „If I could …  „if it could have been …  you feel your happiness lies in the following:  “If I earn more money I will be happy.” “If I accomplish my dream I will happy.” “I will be happy the day I am financially secured.”
  3. 3. The clock of change starts now
  4. 4. WHAT INSPIRES US FROM THE ENLIGHTENED BUDDHA?  Pain is inevitable, but suffering is optional – it is our response to the pain that determines our suffering. No human being can get through life without experiencing some physical or mental discomfort, but our suffering is the result of our reaction to it.
  5. 5. ―Peace comes from within. Do not seek it without.” – Buddha  All that we are is the result of what we have thought. The mind is everything. What we think we become.
  6. 6.  The mind used correctly – i.e. constructive, empowering, solution- and action-oriented, positive, truth-seeking – can create happiness. But used poorly – i.e. blaming, egocentric, negative, blinded by ambition or separation – it will create unhappiness for us.
  7. 7.  Awakening mind becomes the friend of the self and not the creator of a self-image (the concept of the ego) as a replacement for the true self.
  8. 8.  No one saves us but ourselves. No one can and no one may. We ourselves must walk the path.
  9. 9.  See and get in touch with the life in a flower directly, without any interference by our mind by mental concepts and thoughts of the flower.
  10. 10.  Mental activity (thoughts) helps build neural structures and networks, and the more they “fire together, they wire together,” deepening the pathway. Hence, every time you go down the same negative pathway in your thoughts, you are strengthening that pathway, making that negative thought out of control.
  11. 11. Mahatma Gandhi  Look beyond yourself  'There is more to life than simply increasing its speed.'  In very many ways, Gandhi could have led a comfortable life had he chosen to.  The young Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi had a lot going for him -- he had, after all, a foreign degree, held a steady job and had seen the world so to say before that fateful night when he was thrown out of the first class train compartment at Pietermaritzburg in South Africa in spite of holding a valid ticket.
  12. 12.  As he sat shivering in the winter night in the waiting room of the railway station, Gandhi could have well shrugged off and moved on with his life accepting discrimination as part of living and making two ends meet.  Instead, the night proved to be a turning point in his life as he decided to stay on in South Africa and fight the racial discrimination against Indians there.  It was here that Gandhi would formulate the unique version of nonviolent resistance that would change the world for ever -- Satyagraha.
  13. 13.  Mental activity has with it many features. THOUGHTS OF OBJECTS CREATES :  Urges; so we could have urges toward something . And intention; we could have intention to be of some benefit.  Attention; we could pay very strict attention. We could be mindful and hold onto these constructive things. We could have mental stability with them.  We can distinguish between what something is and what it isn’t; and with discriminating awareness we can gain more certainty about that, which leads us to understanding things.
  14. 14.  If we engage in constructive types of activity—love, compassion etc.--- with an intention, the motivation that: ―May this positive force that comes from it contribute to my enlightenment‖ – and the enlightenment of everybody,  then we build up a network of positive force which is going to build up toward enlightenment.
  15. 15. Albert Einstein  Life is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance, you must keep moving.“  World of business can learn many things from Einstein, helping to inspire learners on the subjects of knowledge, goals, experience and overcoming setbacks:
  16. 16.  1. Be Curious  Einstein said that he has “no special talent,” it's just that he is “passionately curious.” So, what intrigues your curiosity?
  17. 17.  2. Be Imaginative  Einstein said that “imagination is everything.” According to him, it's even “more important than knowledge,” since it's able to give you a “preview of what's coming in your way.”
  18. 18.  3. Be determined, be resolved  Einstein said he wasn't a “very smart man,” but he used to “think of the problems longer.”  What we can learn from this is that if you're willing to persevere in what you do, you are most likely to reach your final goals sooner than you might have thought.  Be like a postage stamp; follow your goals until you would have reached them!
  19. 19.  4. Be Focused  What we learn from this is that you can't chase two rabbits at the same time. Always focus on what you're currently doing, and you're most likely to have success in everything you do.
  20. 20.  5. Be Valuable  Einstein said that you should “strive not to be of success,” but rather “to be of value” instead.  Try to discover your hidden gifts and talents, and see how you can benefit others with their aid.
  21. 21.  6. Be Now  Einstein said that he “never thinks of the future,” since “it'd come soon enough” anyway.  Focus your efforts on what you're doing right now and live the moment, since you won't get another chance to meet with it.
  22. 22. Golda Meir(Prime Minister of Israel 1969) 1. Listen to your inner voice :you are far courageous and stronger than you think you are, far smarter than you consider your-self to be, and far more creative than you believe to be. Learn to trust your-self.
  23. 23.  Start your day by saying something like „I am destined to succeed‟ ,it will fill you up with positive energy and you‟ll love your day.  “Make the most of yourself by fanning the tiny, inner sparks of possibility into flames of achievement.” Golda Meir
  24. 24. Define what "good" means to you.  Decide on your own code of ethics.  At times, this may conflict with what others believe is good, and they might even accuse you of being wrong or evil.  Consider their views-either they know something you don't, in which case you may learn something from them and update your morality.  Or perhaps their experience is limited.
