1. Complaining- Instead of doing something about it.
If you find yourself complaining about others, or even worse, for your own situation in life, there’s a pretty good chance you’ve been playing the blame game and have not taken full responsibility for your life, yet!
Except if it’s because of your ill-health and other misfortunes, YOU are responsible for your situation in life.
People who complain often, rarely take responsibility for their actions in life.
They get used to complaining, instead of doing something about it. They don’t take the matter by the horns and wrestle through it to completion; Instead, they’re just comfortable being cowardly, fooling themselves that somehow someone else is to be blamed for their own inability, indecisiveness, and timidity.
Remember, if you’re complaining, you’re incidentally waiting on someone else to solve your problems for you. Agreeing by default, that YOU are incapable of doing anything about it.

“The whole world loves a maverick and the whole world wants the maverick to achieve something nobler than simple rebellion!” – Kevin Patterson
A lot of successful entrepreneurs and business leaders, such as Steve Jobs (Apple) and Richard Branson (Virgin) are often marked as ‘mavericks’. However; apparently most people do not fully understand the term ‘maverick’, so in this blog post I’d like to explain it in more detail.
What/Who is a maverick?
The word maverick is defined by Wikipedia as “an unbranded range animal”, “One who does not abide by rules” or “one who creates or uses unconventional and/or controversial ideas or practices”.
The word derives from Texan rancher and politician Sam Maverick, who allowed his unbranded cattle to roam semi-wild instead of branding them and penning them in fenced-in ranges. That sort of independent spirit describes the companies, entrepreneurs and business leaders being qualified as maverick. Continue reading “Mavericks Explained- What being a maverick is all about?”
Creativity and innovation start with spending time with yourself alone.
It is in those moments of silence with yourself that those “Eureka” moments arise. Speaking of Eureka, Archimedes, discovered his principle when he was in his bathtub alone.
When Elon Musk was asked, “What daily habit do you believe has the largest positive impact on your life?”
Musk’s reply was hilarious and practical:
It’s hard to argue with that.
We tend to get our best ideas in the shower because that’s most often the time we all spend privately with ourselves.
All successful people have this in common, once a year, Bill Gates embarks on something called a ThinkWeek, where he disconnects from the internet and moves into a cabin in the woods.
Free of distraction, he can read a year’s worth of books and strategize ahead about the months to come in a state of ultimate productivity.
There are countless examples and reasons why you need to make it a habit of spending quality time with yourself. Taking some time off a few minutes every day will help you re-orient yourself and get you back on track.
So, don’t forget to spend some time alone with the awesome person reading this. 😉
Being Truthful and what it means to be Human –
We often find ourselves feeling “Life is not fair” because of our desire for being just and fair. We want equality, justice and fairness in everything in life, our empathy stems from the very concept of being truthful.
One of the many seemingly simple yet one of the most significant and complex questions we find ourselves asking many often is,
“What does it mean to be Human?”
However, one of the most remarkable attributes that define humanity in the core of its being is the sense of longing for Truth and Justice.
Truth and its significance in ethics :
Even a man who violates Justice longs for it when he is in the victim’s stead.
Justice has as at its foundation, the principle of being Truthful; no wonder why scholars include the word ‘honesty’ as a synonym for Justice,
no one who’s true to himself and his conscience can oppose justness in the state of being truthful.
