Everyone of us having problems in our life. Everyone thinks that their life alone full of problems and as a result we are occupied by pressure, jealousy, stress and a lot of negative thoughts.

But is it true that we are alone having problems? Certainly NOT. Everyone has their own problems. 

Then how some people are always happy but others are not? What is the reason? Are they blessed? 

Yes, they are blessed in a way that they took everything as a sign of opportunity. But how a problem become an opportunity? If you have right attitude, you will see opportunity in a problem. But if you have opposite, you will see problems in every opportunity before you.

People who believe and practice positive attitude, are much happier than others. They feel light and see good in everything. These kind of people tend to lead a Happy Life and can motivate others.   

There is a small story of Farmer, how perception can change your life. Lets see,

The Farmer and The Saint:

There is an interesting story about a farmer, which explains what is happiness. 

The Farmer:

There was a farmer in a village who always worried about his household. He had a big family with 10 members and all of them lived in a simple hut.

The Saint:

To that very same village, a Saint came. For a few days, He stayed under a big banyan tree. People from and around the village came to see him and get his blessings. Our farmer also went to seek blessings from the saint. The saint asked the farmer to come near and asked about his wellness. 

The farmer explained his difficulties in his household and asked his blessings. The Saint thought asked the farmer to tie his sheeps inside his hut for a month and promised to return after a month to see the farmer again.

The farmer did the same for a month and since his hut was so small it just increased the difficulties he had. But he was keen on following Saint's order and waiting for Saint's return to the village.

After a month the Saint returned and the farmer went to meet him again. Saint asked him how he was and he replied that he was having a very difficult time and all his family members are unhappy now. The saint asked him to tie the sheeps out of the hut today and come and see him again tomorrow. 

That night the farmer tied the sheep as asked by Saint. Suddenly the farmer's family found so much space in their hut and they slept well after a long time. Early morning farmer went to the saint with a happy face and told him that they slept well after a month. He also asked him what magic saint did.

With a smile, the saint explained to him, the reason for the happiness of his family is not because of any magic, because of the mindset. 


Happiness is the state of mind. Worrying and Complaining is not going to help, instead sow the seed of negativity in our mind. We cultivate what we sow. Instead of Worrying, be grateful for what we have and trying achieve what we want is a formula for success. 

There is a concept of Maro-Up by Wahei Takeda, which means true heart. It suggests that purifying our heart and filling it with positive thoughts and gratitude, attracts abundance of success and wealth. 

So Be Positive and Lead a Happy Life, Success will find its way to you.

Be Thankful and Happy Always !!!

A Life Lesson is something we learn once but useful throughout our lives. Some lessons come through various experience and some of them really come with a price. 

Do we always have to pay a hefty price for these lessons? For most of them, No. Because you may not have enough time and strength to make all of those mistakes. That is the reason people pass their experience and knowledge to the next generation through stories and books. 

One need not to suffer to gain experience if he/she is smart enough to learn from other's mistakes. But we are often too blind to learn even from our mistakes. 

So from today onwards, lets take some time to learn from others experiences. And lets directly go to one of that lessons.

Three Fishes And Their Fate: 

There were three fishes in a pond and they were friends. They lived in that pond for a long time. Their name were Wise, Reactive and Lazy.

Three Fishes:

Wise is really wise and used to make decisions and not afraid of changes. Reactive is okay to change but if it is only forced. Lazy reacts slow, never adapt and often accept whatever happens as fate.

The Fate:

One day, some fishermen came to the pond and became happy when seeing so many fishes in the pond. They planned to catch the fishes from the pond the next day. Wise always watch for the environment. It hope for the best but always prepare for the worst. It already had a backup plan if something went wrong. So it predicted the outcome and approached the other two with its plan. It proposed to escape from that pond and go to the nearest water surface even-though they are not sure how much they can adapt. 

Reactive thought Wise is overreacting and it will do something if something happens and Lazy, not at all interested in leaving the pond. So the Wise escaped from the pond through a channel and the new place was difficult to adjust but had a lot of resources.

The next day, the fishermen came and started to capture the fishes. On seeing this, the Reactive approached the Lazy and asked Lazy to come with it. Lazy refused, saying pond is their house, nothing would happen to them and there was no life for them outside of the pond. But, after a lot of struggle, the Reactive escaped from the pond. It was also happy, atleast it took a right decision at a right time.

The Lazy, believing that nothing bad would happen, stayed in the pond and got captured by the fishermen. 


The pond is our Comfort Zone. People who stuck in their comfort zone for a long time, will eventually end up like Lazy. But who predict and escape from their comfort zone even before something worse happens, become leaders and very successful people. They tap their potential at early and set their footprint on whatever the field they are on.  People who atleast try to leave their comfort zone when they start to face the issues, will end up in middle of those two. They are ordinary but surviving majority.

In which layer do you want to fit yourself? Are you going to lead? or are you going to be average? or gonna stuck in the same pond for the rest of your life? 

The decision is yours and only you are responsible for your decision. Get out of Comfort Zone, Embrace the change and see a new world.
