"You've got to find what you love. And that is as true for your work as it is for your lovers. Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven't found it yet, keep looking. Don't settle. As with all matters of the heart, you'll know when you find it. And, like any great relationship, it just gets better and better as the years roll on. So keep looking until you find it. Don't settle." Steve Jobs, CEO, Apple Computer  
Self-Reflection with the help of meditation is the best way to discover our true and deepest passion. During meditation the conscious mind gets silent. As a result, we are able to hear the sub-conscious mind or we can say that the sub-conscious gets activated. If you feel more comfortable with self reflection or plain contemplation or sitting si…

Words have always captivated me. However, I am not going to talk about words today, but about just one word which makes us great: Gratitude. Most of the dictionaries define gratitude as a feeling of being thankful and appreciative. What gratitude is then? I guess that everyone has a particular way to feel that word. I would like to define it as that inner feeling which makes me app…

What You Do Is Not Just Business. It’s Personal.

A Guest Post on Business Relationships by Rory Kelly Connor

How many times have you heard the adage, “It’s not personal; it’s just business!” over the last decade? Once or twice? Dozens? Hundreds?
Relationships Are Personal
As a VP at a worldwide public relations’ (PR) agency in New York, I watched twice as dozens of people were laid off in waves by the company. No warning. Not even a “thank you and goodbye.” Repeatedly, the exit stories detailed heartless conversations handled by cold Human Resources personnel who maintained that “It isn’t personal. It’s just business.” Unanimously, the employees stunned out of a job took it very personally. Because they are people. How else are they supposed to take it?
We have seen that same business standard used repeatedly to mask greed, get to goal, and pump up the bottom line over the last 10-20 years. It has been used as an excuse for all kinds of words and behaviors. For instance, Bernie Madoff never thought twice about defrauding thousands of …

The Sub-conscious- Tapping its Enormous Power

Janet Smith Warfield (based in Florida, USA) and 
Dr Amit Nagpal (based in New Delhi, India).

 Janet Smith Warfield's Perspective
What do we mean when we talk about the subconscious? How can we tap into its power to enhance our effectiveness?
Our subconscious and conscious minds are like an iceberg. The conscious mind is the tip we can see. It is that small part of awareness that is above the surface, the part on which we are currently focused, the part that is obvious, right here, right now, to our five senses. The subconscious mind lies below the surface. It is an enormous source of untapped resources we don’t normally see. What we don’t see, we can’t use to support our lives, our communities, and our world. When we tap into our subconscious and bring its energetic power to the surface, we mine its abundance and use its resources to enhance…

Why Freelancers Must do Personal Branding?

Image
Freelancers are free birds with varying incomes every month. Sometimes they are overloaded with work (and they are forced to outsource) and at other times they have nothing to do.
Since freelancers are not attached with any organisation, they always face identity and branding issues and it is often embarrassing to introduce oneself as a freelancer.
So what is the solution? Is it necessary to start a small organisation and become an entrepreneur? Not necessary, in fact personal branding is much easier to do compared to organisation branding. Personal brands can be developed in a very short period of time and at very low costs. Social media has made personal branding very easy and very little investment is required.
How has Personal Branding Become Easier with Social Media?
The personal brand creates a pull and the (freelancer’s) services sell on their own and at good prices. After all how much price you are able to fetch in the market is directly related how positive a perception you can g…

Why Personal Branding is a Must for Creative Professionals?

Image
Creative people generally get so absorbed and emotionally involved in their passion and work, that they forget to market and brand themselves. That is why many creative people live a life of a pauper. Many of them (highly creative) are often not interested in selling themselves and suffer financially because of this nature. 

Personal branding can help them in this area because if they build a strong brand they don't have to be pushy to sell their products. the personal brand creates a pull and their products sell on their own and at good prices. 



Thus Personal branding helps them generate revenue (generally it takes 2-3 years though) without hurting their self-respect and without going against their fundamental nature. Social media has made personal branding very easy and very little investment is required.


How has Personal Branding Become Easier with Social Media?

Internet in general and blogs in particular thus offer creatives a huge opportunity. They can post their paintings, carto…

Positive Affirmations and the Sub-Conscious Mind

Image
Many books like, 'The Secret' have been talking of life and universe being an echo and we get what we send to people and the universe. 


The question arises, how do we master our own thoughts, which seem so out of control and tap the power of the sub-conscious mind?
