10 Commandments.... the last part...


7. Better the world around you

Life runs on commitment. If you observe every small thing or big thing in life, they go with certain commitment. Greater the commitment you take, greater the power you gain to fulfill that commitment. Greater the commitment, easier things are. Smaller the commitment, suffocating it is for you. Smaller commitments suffocates you because you have more capacity, but you are stuck in a small hole! Usually we think we should have resource and then we will commit. Greater the commitment you take, greater the resources will come to you automatically. Whatever you are committed to, brings you strength. If you are committed to your family then your family supports you, if you are committed to society, you enjoy the support of society. Commitment will always bring comfort in the long run. Make a commitment to make this world a better place to live. 

8. Dream the impossible.

Unless you have a dream, you cannot realize it. Every invention has come out of a dream. Dream the impossible. Know that you are born in this world to do something wonderful and unique; don’t let this opportunity pass by. Give yourself the freedom to dream and think big. Have the courage and determination to achieve those dreams that are dear to you.

At any given point of time, our mind is either angry or sad about the past or anxious about the future. Whatever actions you do in this state of mind, you regret after some time. This is how you get caught up in the same old cycle. Does it mean that you should not plan your future? No! you should plan your short and long term goals. Then and only then, life gets a channel, a direction to flow. When the mind is totally in the present, the right planning happens. Not only should you plan your goals, but plan the means and methods to work towards them. Do not make a list of all the things you want to achieve. Select few things that really matters.

9. Don’t kill others’ enthusiasm

Enthusiasm is the nature of life. We often have a tendency to put cold water on other’s enthusiasm. Reverse this tendency. Take every opportunity to praise others and support their enthusiasm. If you put down other’s enthusiasm, the same may happen to you. As you sow, so shall you reap. Someone without enthusiasm is like a corpse. How would you like to see yourself? Happy and bubbling with enthusiasm or dull and difficult to please? But as you mature the enthusiasm curve declines. Become one whose enthusiasm never dies.

10. Be a student, always

Know that you are a student forever. Do not under estimate anybody. Knowledge may come to you from any corner. Remember the ancient saying  “let knowledge flow to me from all sides”. Each occasion teaches you and each person teaches you. The world is your teacher.
