Born to Stand Out


Each minute of our life is a lesson but most of us fail to read it. I thought I would just add my daily lessons & the lessons that I learned by seeing the people around here. So it may be useful for you and as memories for me.

From my Childhood, I’ve been following inspiring leaders, writers and others on the cutting edge of thought leadership, and I’m still awed and amazed at how much there is out in the world to be inspired by.

In my line of work as a Life coach, Soft-Skill trainer, Tech Lead and blogger, I’m fortunate to connect with some awesome and amazing Men and Woman who invest deeply in ideas, thoughts and help their dreams become reality.  Success is an iceberg. When we learn about extremely successful leaders, we tend to see the tip of the iceberg. What we may fail to see is the hard work behind their success. IMG_3999.JPG

I remember being rendered speechless when someone asked me, “Who’s your role model?  Who inspires you?” The sad truth is that, at that time, the answer was “No one.” Today, I would like to speak about a young lady i.e. my friend “Nandita Narayan” who is so Inspiring and Motivating with her Ideas, moves and Personality. Her presence brings the change in environment and inspires many people around. There is something intriguing and compelling about a girl who lights up every room she walks in. Is it her style? No. Is it her long flowing hair? No. Is it her flawless complexion? No. She is quietly confident and has a way of listening and engaging with people. When a group of radiant young women come together, they can inspire hearts, and do remarkable and lovely things. Here are few points i would like to bring that make her stand out.

Fearless
She welcomes the future in all of it’s unknown mystery. Even if she does feel afraid, she does what she has been called to do anyways. Being bold and courageous in the middle of fear has produced great victories throughout history. She always lets her faith be bigger than her fear.

Honest
She knows the liberating and healing power in revealing her struggles and shame. She is honest with those who mistreat her, letting them know that she only tolerates respect, just as she respects them.

Mentorship
She is humble hearted and wise in knowing that she will never know everything there is to know. She has a thirst for learning and growing, so she invites advice and sound counsel from solid mentors.

Self-Discipline
Consistent good habits in her life like getting enough rest, proper nutrition, exercise, spending time in prayer and journaling reflects the commitment to take care of her over-all health. This enables her to care for the people and other priorities in her life more effectively.

Goodness
She is a vessel of joy and kindness, like a healing medicine to the flesh and soul. People are excited when they see her coming and hate to see her go because she always brings life through her words and actions.

Work Ethic
She is not known for laziness; she works diligently. Even when the job seems less than ideal, she always works with a cheerful heart and a constant gratitude for the ability to work and provide. This way, her happiness is not contingent on circumstances alone.

Stands for Justice
She speaks up for those who can not speak for themselves. She defends those who are defenseless and she has a heart for restoring justice.

Wisdom
The words she speaks comes with great responsibility and impact, even to those she does not know are listening. Therefore she is mindful in habitually only speaking words of wisdom and guidance. Therefore, all who encounter her will be blessed because of her. Gossip, slander, idle talk and negativity are strangers to her lips.

Leads by Example
She counsels younger women with a good listening ear, a compassionate heart and a voice of truth. She inspires others to follow her vision through servant leadership and creativity.

Self-Worth
She knows that her value is not defined by the opinions of people, but rather by who she is in the One who made her. When she looks into the mirror, she sees a reflection of God’s own image. There is no rare or glittering jewel or metal that could compare with her worth.

I agree that no Woman or Man who is complete and perfect. What would our character and lives look like if we purposefully applied these attributes? Start with one per day, you could even write yourself reminders in your phone or post-its on your mirror to remind you of the woman/man you can be if you want to be. You were born to stand out.

There are so many people in the world who can serve as your role models and help you make the huge impact in the world that you want to, that I’d say this — if you can’t find someone to inspire you, it’s time for an internal shift to heal the disconnection and isolation you feel, and get yourself back in the game of life.

My Team is My Family


Each minute of our life is a lesson but most of us fail to read it. I thought I would just add my daily lessons & the lessons that I learned by seeing the people around here. So it may be useful for you and as memories for me.

Article by a Sweet Team Member.. img_1152

There are lot of reasons why i love my work. One of the important one’s is my TEAM and I
just have an nondetachable bond with them. I am so immensely blessed to have them in my life, and they have made my life better in more ways than they know.We work together, fight together, understand each other, cheer each other up, talk together, help each other, guide each other and we LIVE together. I’ll remember them till my last breath that’s for sure.

I already knew some of the folks, I’d already grown close with them, so they mean a lot to me, yet new friends who came into my life and I got to know them, and they turned out awesome. This has been one great experience and I’ve NEVER wanted any other team and couldn’t wish for a better one because I feel like we stick together, and we have team spirit to stand by each other which is important.

My team is my family, and while there are countless reasons why they will always hold such a special place in my heart. Every’s life is colorful when they enjoy and love the company of others.

We’re a family

photo-0180The amazing bond that we have will never be lost. We are together, in our successes and in our failures. Family is family, no matter what. A great team is so much more than merely people that you play your sport with. A successful team knows each other on a deeper
level. They know each other’s likes, dislikes, fears, strengths and weaknesses; they are also able to accommodate around all of these things. A true team will never be broken. Once a team, always a team

We guide each other

As a team, We walk with each other, through the darkest night and brightest day by holding the hand and and guiding the way. Stones often bar our path, and there are times we fall, but we are always there to help each other. We have a shoulder when someone needs it and have place for everyone in our heart.

We’re always laughing when we’re together

When me and my friends are together, we act like the most mentally retarded people on the planet. Everything’s funnier with my team. You can always count on us to be “that group” of people that’s laughing to the point of tears. There’s always a smile on the face which lightens the workplace. A smile never cost anybody anything and a day seems to go better when you are surrounded by colleagues that smile and are willingly to help you anytime or just to hug you when you are not feeling ok.

We trust each other img_1356

As a team, we love each other and trust everyone in the team. We don’t judge, and our secrets are safe within our team. We can tell each other anything. From our deepest,
darkest secrets . Whatever it is, we’ll listen. My Friends know every embarrassing thing that’s happened to me, and we know every weird thing about others. We never hesitate share  something, because all of us knew that we will take it to our grave.

We know how to listen each other

It sounds like a simple task, but very few people are as attentive my team. They sit with me while I speak, and they follow all my words, and waits until I finish before responding. Sometimes they don’t even need to reply — their concentration is all I need.

We can be ourselves with each other

Like I just said, our team doesn’t judge. In my team all can be what they were. Whether we are dancing around while not fully dressed, sending each other humiliating snapchats or making fun of each other, we are always pushing the boundaries of how close is too close. We wouldn’t have it any other way, though. A team is a group of people who sees the many different versions of you: the weird and hysterical version of you, the crazy version of you, the serious version of you, the lovable version of you—and they still love you to pieces.

20140824131906We pick each other up when we’re down.

If someone is talking shit, everyone will be there on my defense like white on rice. We’re always there to cheer someone up, to get another’s head back in the life’s race, to comfort everyone and we never give up on each other.

We know how to get out of a seriously bad mood

They’ll play that one song, or suggest we watch that one movie, or take me to that one amazing café. They’ll comfort me if I want, or give me space if I want to be alone. Somehow they always know what to do, and I am forever grateful. I don’t know how they do it, but they’re always radiating happy energy, and it never fails to make me feel better.

We celebrate every occasion

Throughout the year, we’ve had lot of celebrations in the office & out of office. Either on birthdays, marriage days every team member has been spoilt with splendid flowers img_20150104_074347-001
followed by either a birthday breakfast, or a lunch. What makes those moments special is not necessarily the presents or the things received but simply the genuine mark of affection and consideration toward everyone.

” Dont Count the Days Make the Days Count ”

You know those little things that make your day shine and are not really connected to you in anyway? Either your colleague’s attitude, the way your work space is organised or random surprises that your colleagues treat you with can make every day at work more and more enjoyable.

Little things that make people feel happy at work

 2-4You can have a happy workplace if you take the time to make it a happy workplace. Hire happy people. Don’t get caught up in focusing on the negative and make sure to do the little things that make a difference in people’s lives.

It won’t be a major cultural change at first but I can promise you that slowly but surely, your workplace will become a better place and people will do better work.

Sociable Colleagues

Isn’t everything better when you have nice sociable colleagues to work with? You can have a happy workplace if you take the time to make it a happy workplace. Hire happy people. Don’t get caught up in focusing on the negative and make sure to do the little things that make a difference in people’s lives. It won’t be a major cultural change at first but I can promise you that slowly but surely, your workplace will become a better place and people will do better work.

Doing tasks that have meaning for me

Let’s say you choose a job just for paying your rent and you’re waiting for a dream job opportunity. But, whatever you’re doing you want to be appreciated for your work. And how can we judge a fish by its climbing skills? We can’t.

Constructive feedback2011-06-25-15-19-44

The most important part of your work is feedback. No matter if it’s positive or negative (and then you will know what you have to change) feedback represents a very important instrument for measuring the quality of your work. And a complete feedback that has only the best intentions can transform your day in a very productive and cheerful one.

Smiling co-workers

A smile never cost anybody anything and a day seems to go better when you are surrounded by colleagues that smile and are willingly to help you anytime or just to hug you when you are not feeling ok.

Having a mentor

Not anybody can brag about having a mentor at their job. A mentor is not only a teacher, it is the person that inspires you, the person from whom you want “steal” the knowledge’s of the job or you want to enjoy his “success secrets”.

A good training program

We all feel very motivated do our job the best way we can when we have a very good
training program. Thereby you can receive better feedback  you can work more focused and you can improve your skills when you know you’ll be rewarded.

Brainstorming sessions

The sessions where we put our brains to work to come up with a mountain of ideas in which there is hidden, like a treasure, a brilliant idea for a project are relaxing and exhausting. Even though it seems a paradox a brainstorming session can bring up to the surface all the creativity that we are capable.

Open-minded people around

If all the people around us would be open minded we would all have something to gain.

A unique benefits package

IMG_20150103_131635-001We bet you love free coffee or lunch included or candies on bosses desk or stuff like that included in your unique benefits package. Or maybe you prefer free gym or free parking

The pursuit of happiness is so crucial that we try a lot of motivational strategies to make our employees productive. Happy employees tend to work efficiently and effectively since they emit positive energy, it is for this reason why they have to have proper compensation in order for them to enjoy and love their respective job. If the employee is in the state of being happy, he/she is thrice innovative.

These little things can really make them feel important and they’ll be dedicated to their respective work.

Life is short. Time is fast. No replay. No rewind


Each minute of our life is a lesson but most of us fail to read it. I thought I would just add my daily lessons & the lessons that I learned by seeing the people around here. So it may be useful for you and as memories for me.

Enjoy, enjoy and enjoy. We all have the power to shape our day and our life, so no matter what is happening in our lives we can make the decision to be happy and enjoy every moment . You are here in this world for a short period of time. Therefore, you must enjoy each and every single moment of your life. If you don’t want to enjoy your life then you are no more a living person.

 Life is short. Time is fast. No replay. No rewind. So enjoy every moment as it comes.

 Get up early in the morning. Go for a swift walk. Enjoy listening to the chattering of birds. Enjoy looking at the beautiful colourful IMG_20150103_131635-001flowers. Do some workout/stretching in the nearby park. Fill your lungs with pollution free fresh air. Isn’t it all exciting and enjoyable.

 Enjoy your breakfast. Breakfast is the most important meal of the day so your breakfast must include a variety of nourishing food such as fruit, juice, milk, bread, cereals, egg, jam, jelly, honey, dried nuts, tea, coffee etc.

 Enjoy your work. Start your work by saying hello to everyone in the office. Pass some positive remarks about your colleagues. Be crazy and make a lively, healthy environment. Enjoy talking to your clients, colleagues, friends and family members. Make every effort to complete your work in time.

 Enjoy every single bite of your lunch. Don’t eat in a haste. Eat in a tension-free and stress-free atmosphere. Don’t eat in a haste. Eat the kind of food that is light on stomach but quite nourishing so that you get the much needed physical as well as emotional energy, during the day.

 After satisfactorily finishing your work, it’s now time to leave office and enjoy. Enjoy your leisure time in the manner you wish to enjoy by involving yourself in activities like reading, writing, studying, swimming, boating, dancing, visiting friends, learning new skills, playing outdoors, playing indoors, watching TV , watching movies, listening to your favourite music, enjoying food in your favourite restaurant, going on long drive, etc.

 Don’t engage yourself in activities that can bring problems to your life. Don’t invite trouble. Live a disease-free, smoke-free, stress-free and drugs-free life. Don’t involve yourself in any criminal activities and don’t do anything that is illegal or immoral.

IMG_20150104_120831692-001 Now and then plan for outings or tours with your family & friends. It helps you in coming out of the normal routine life. Leave all your worries and enjoy every moment like kid

 Difficult times in life come and go but keep your spirits high even in the worst type of crisis. Face challenges of life with courage and a positive state of mind. Take lessons from your past mistakes but don’t feel guilty. Laugh at silly things and enjoy life. Laughter is the best medicine.

 It is my own experience that you get the best kind of enjoyment when you help those who are helpless and look towards you for help. I personally feel great excited when I am able to help such people. There is nothing more enjoyable than enabling other people enjoy their lives. Enjoy your own life and let others enjoy theirs.

You will not live forever, so till you are alive, enjoy every moment of your life from the core of your heart.

I’m So Sorry My Love


Each minute of our life is a lesson but most of us fail to read it. I thought I would just add my daily lessons & the lessons that I learned by seeing the people around here. So it may be useful for you and as memories for me.

Article was written by Nikila…

My dear Aryan(name was changed),

I hope you forgive me and, please, read this letter till the end. I just want to say I`m sorry; all I want is to tell you that I made a big mistake when I decided to break up with you and this mistake has made me hurt and cry too much. I get emotional at least 5 times a day and struggle daily to not contact you.

The past three years held some of the greatest moments of my life and it was all because of you. Somewhere along the line I stopped realizing how amazing you were and took you for granted. I cheated and even though I realized I was wrong and ended it I still lied to you. It hurts so much knowing that this pain I’m feeling is coming directly from my actions.  i_miss_u__source.jpg_480_480_0_64000_0_1_0

I know I did wrong, but believe me when I say that I made a mistake, I was confused and unsure of want I wanted. The moment we broke up I realized, in truth, that you are the only who can make me happy…

Please don`t take my apologies as yet another selfish attitude, and as if I`m only thinking about myself; if you`re noble enough to forgive me you`ll find out that I can really make you very happy too!

I know you must be upset and I can perfectly understand why. I`m aware of the extent of my mistake and I`ve even tried to put myself in your shoes. I understand the sad and uneasy situation that I`ve put you through just because of a slip up but mostly because of my childishness and insecurity. But I trust you have a big heart and soul. And I honestly wish you could give me another chance, one last chance to make your feel happy and very much loved.

Please, reply quickly, by letter or by phone!

A kiss filled with love and my most sincere apologies

✿ ATTITUDE MAKES ALL THE DIFFERENCE ✿


Each minute of our life is a lesson but most of us fail to read it. I thought I would just add my daily lessons & the lessons that I learned by seeing the people around here. So it may be useful for you and as memories for me.

Article by MATT…

Attitude is such a little thing that makes a major difference.  There are many factors that determine ones success throughout life, however, I strongly believe that having the right attitude towards life, yourself, and others is one of the greatest factors of all. attitude

The right attitude can take you to the top of your profession. The right attitude can build powerful marriages.  The right attitude can create an everlasting legacy.  The right attitude can bring out the best in others.  The right attitude can spark hope in those who are in need.

Some of the biggest achievements in history were made by men and women who understood the importance of attitude.  A good portion of the population will look at these accomplishments and think, “Wow, how in the world did they do that?”  We tend to believe these men and women have been blessed with a special gift over the rest of us.  That there is no way we could ever do something that remarkable.  And it’s that type of mental attitude that will leave you searching and wishing for more in life.  Never creating and leaving a legacy of your own.

YOU have ultimate control over your attitude.  YOU aren’t any different from the next person.  YOU have the ability to live your dream and create whatever it is you desire.  It all comes down to YOUR attitude.  Why is it that some can earn an extraordinary amount of money with very little education?  Why can some defeat such odds and go on to be some of the worlds greatest achievers?  Simple.  The attitude they chose.  You have two options.  To choose a positive and resilient attitude despite any hardship you encounter along the way, or to allow life’s minor mishaps to negatively shape your attitude.  And what you choose will greatly determine the quality of life your life.

When you choose a positive attitude, no goal or dream is out of reach.  If it has been done before, then you darn well know you can do the same.  Someone with a negative attitude loves to play the blame game.  The economy limits their financial goals.  Circumstances limit their vision for what they can accomplish.

The only thing that separates you from those who are living a happy, abundant, and successful life is whether you decide to choose a positive or negative attitude.  Take advantage of your power and the ability to choose whatever attitude it is you desire.  But just know that such a little thing…… makes such a major difference!

Attitude affects our every aspect of life. Happiness is the product of our attitudes because right attitudes will produce right actions. Only right actions can make us happy. If we have the right attitude we will see the invisible, feel the intangible and achieve the impossible. Having positive attitudes is a sure way to succeed in life. It is a sure way to long and cheerful life.

Let us opt for a great attitude to have a great life.

Proud To Be Your Daughter


Each minute of our life is a lesson but most of us fail to read it. I thought I would just add my daily lessons & the lessons that I learned by seeing the people around here. So it may be useful for you and as memories for me.

Article by Daughter of a Lovely Father…..

 The greatest gift I ever had, Came from God; I call him Father!  

He didn’t tell me how to live; he lived, and let me watch him do it.

There will always be a few people who have the courage to love what is untamed inside us. One of those men is my father.

Who Is A Father?            DSC00444

A Father is someone who
wants to catch you before you fall
but instead picks you up,
brushes you off,
and lets you try again.

A Father is someone who
wants to keep you from making mistakes
but instead lets you find your own way,
even though his heart breaks in silence
when you get hurt.

A Father is someone who
holds you when you cry,
scolds you when you break the rules,
shines with pride when you succeed,
and has faith in you even when you fail…

My father gave me the greatest gift anyone could give another person, he believed in me

FATHER I take this opportunity to say
BIG Thank you for what you have made
my life to be from the word go to this time.
I say thank you Father.
Happy Father’s Day

Tribute to Women


Each minute of our life is a lesson but most of us fail to read it. I thought I would just add my daily lessons & the lessons that I learned by seeing the people around here. So it may be useful for you and as memories for me.

download

The first face……The first touch….The first love……he first affection…The first hug

Mother…………….. A women.

 Do I need to say about “the first” anymore??

This is a tribute to our mothers, grandmothers and sisters or the women who have come and gone throughout centuries and the women who are here today taking their place; women like you and me.

This is a tribute to women from all walks of life. No matter where they came from or what position or status they held, these are women who have toiled the soil for most if not all their living years. These are the women who worked for hours, days, even years, often non-stop, pouring their sweat, sometimes their heart into what they felt needed to be done. Some of these women got to see the fruit of their hard labor while others didn’t. One thing is clear though, no matter what little satisfaction they got or didn’t get out of it, they still got the job done otherwise you and I wouldn’t be here today living the life we lead.

Throughout time these women have done their share of the work often quietly and sometimes not so quietly, at times, even with a lot of anguish and despair too But in the end they did the work because they knew if they didn’t, no one else would.

While some of these women chose the work they gave their time and effort, more often than not, they didn’t have the luxury of choice. Many felt their work was their fate and so it was only their duty to accept it and carry it out. Perhaps as a result, many also carried the burden of resentment. But they still stayed and did the work and quietly buried their grief within themselves. Some carried their grief and resentment into their graves, or maybe it was the grief and the resentment that finally carried them to their graves. Either way, many left and still leave today with a heavy heart and a silent voice. This is a tribute to all these women who have come and gone, and those who are here today doing the work but are rarely seen, recognized or acknowledged for their share.

Though these women come from all races, religions, sects and cultures, we are able to relate to them as our own mothers, sisters, aunts, and grandmothers. This strong kinship always existed among women. No matter from what part of the world we come from, whenever we hear about another woman who may be lost her life to cancer, we let out a deep sigh of despair for we only know too well of the pain that finally took her precious life. We know her as our own because her pain is our pain.

respect_women

So let us come together, pay tribute and celebrate the lives of these women through celebrating our own precious lives. Let us celebrate our own talents and unique qualities and give ourselves the acknowledgment and the recognition due for our efforts and hard work however big or small. Let us recognize and honor the mother, the sister, the aunt and the grandmother within ourselves and within each other and remember that like a burning candle that illuminated the dark, we too need to honor and cherish the light within ourselves and each other for giving light to the world around us.
