Sometimes we find ourselves in the middle of emotional hurricane when we don’t know what to do and where to get started. I’d say, start right where you are...
In business or coaching, We are trying to force-feed other people with what we think we know. And I am one of the most guilty offenders. When I started practicing Yoga, I thought everybody had to follow the same Path. Until my teacher told me, “Who said you’re right?”

Here’s an interesting concept I learned from the cartoon called “Alice in Wonderland”. The book was actually called “Through the Mirror”. Why don’t we celebrate unbirthdays? What is unbirthday? Any day of the year that is not your birthday...
As we run this Circle of life, most of the time we live in one of two dimensions: dreams and fantasies about the future or happy memories and regrets about the past. There’s only one moment in between...
A couple of days ago I saw the post on internet that said, and I quote, “… I’ve survived everything I’ve ever encounter in life. I have a 100% survival rate…” And I’ve heard it before from my coaches and mentors. Let’s talk about that for a minute.
Humble leaders are strong people who understand their strength, but choose to use it for the benefit of other people. They don’t think less about themselves, but they sure choose to think more about others.

When I was growing up, calling somebody lazy was not the nicest label to give. I think it is still true today. But let me change your perspective a bit.
If you practice Yoga, you should know about Yama and Niyama, first two out of 8 limbs of Yoga. But I will talk about Meyama today. Have you heard of it?

Today we’ll talk about a very popular cartoon: Kung-Fu Panda. I like it. And I am not going to debate the quality or accuracy of every small detail. But there are some concepts that really resonated in me. I think even adults can learn a lot, but especially kids because they are the primary viewers.
My communication skills used to be a total disaster. On one hand, I was assuming what people thought and wanted to say or do. But on the other hand, I was assuming how people were perceiving me. And trust me, that did not improve my self esteem...

I read in the book, that people use different representational systems as their primary basis for thoughts or feelings. They can use sight, hearing, touch, smell and taste. Even in a verbal communication. Just imagine you’re going on vacation...

...I am an ex-military, I was trained to make decisions under pressure. However, I must admit that I’ve done some dumb things. So for me, this is the first hand experience. And I am telling you, the worst thing in those situations was trying to correct my mistakes by making another greater mistake...
One of the students got astonished by this skill. He asked another student, “If our teacher can turn stones into gold, how come he did not become the most powerful man on the Earth?” The other student answered, “Yes, he can do it..."
There’s an old story about stone of knowledge sitting in the ground by the intersection of two roads. Many people were walking by. Two women began to cry when they saw the stone. Two warriors met by the stone. They started fighting and they killed each other. Two landlords came up with agreement to put the border line through the stone...
Many years ago I was watching a kid’s fairly tale on TV, and one interesting phrase got stuck in my mind. The guy said, “Don’t be afraid of those who speak without thinking, but be afraid of those who think without speaking”.
Dwelling on the past is like trying to drive your car while staring in the rear view mirror. It won’t take you far ahead. It may get you off the road instead. In fact, people who look back all the time, most likely will go backwards in life.
