If you want to grow : READ

If you want to grow , if you want to become better, read. Read anything you can get your hands on. READ whenever you have a spare time.

Having daily reading practice is incredibly powerful.

Through books we get to learn the things other people have spent their whole lives learnings. And we can learnt it in a matter of hours.

Book provides access to how other people think, how they’ve achieved great things and provides information on how we too can experience success in the areas that matters most.

Reading is essential for those who seek to rise above the ordinary.

Jim Rohn

Nothing is more powerful than the treasure of knowledge and the way to acquire this treasure is to read as much as you can.

Research has proved that acquiring new knowledge satisfies an individual’s thirst for competence , which makes them eventually happier.

You must develop the habit of reading books that will help you to acquire new skills and as well as to polish your existing skills.

The only person who is educated is the one who has learned how to learn and change.

Use Absence to Increase Respect and Honor

Too much circulation makes the price go down: The more you seen and heard from , the more common you appear.

If you are already established in a group , temporary withdrawal from it will make up you more talked about , even more admired.

You must learn when to leave . Create value through scarcity.

Win through your action , Never Through argument.

Any momentary trumph you think you have gained through argument is really a Pyrrhic victory . The resentment and ill will you stir up is stronger and lasts longer than any momentary change of opinion.

It is much more powerful to get others to agree with you through your action without saying a words.

Demonstrate , do not explicate.

Review On ” The Last Lecture “

I read ” The Last Lecture” book few times in 4 years. I brought this book by reading summary of this book on google in 2016. “The Last Lecture” book written by “Randy Pausch” . The author describe his journey of life from childhood as well as bottle up his life and advice for his children.

Whenever i read ” The last Lecture” , I feeling connected with the author’s view. Don’t know why i feel connected to author’s view on life ; I think it because I am Computer Science Student and the author is Computer science Professor.

Happy Reading…..!

Dress Right , It always pays

Look important -it helps you think important.

Rule : Remember your appearance “talks” . Be sure it says positive things about you. Never leaves home without feeling certain you look like the kind of person you want to be.

Most honest advertisement appearing in print — ” Dress Right , You can’t Afford Not To. “

One advertisement primarily for child but it can be applied to adults as well. “Look at yourself through your superior’s eyes , your associate’s eyes “

It costs so little to be neat . Take the slogan literally. Interpret it to say ” Dress Right , it always pays.”

People do evaluate you on the basis of your appearance. Your appearance is the first basis of your evaluation other people have. The point is : the better you are packaged , the more public acceptance you will receive.

Appearance is important but how do you expect me to afford the kind of clothing which really makes me feel right and which causes other to look up to me?

Answers is : ” Pay twice as much and buy half as many.”

In sofar as appearance is concerned , quality is for more important than quantity. Remember : Your appearance talks to you and it talks to others. Make certain it says , “Here is a person who has self-respect. He’s important . Treat him that way.”

You own it to others – but , more important , you own it to yourself – to look your best.

You are what you think you are . If your appearance makes you think you’re inferior , you are inferior . If it makes you think small , you are small.

Look your best and you will think and act your best.

My Reading Bucket List In 2020

“A reader lives a thousand lives before he dies . . . The man who never reads lives only one.”

George R.R. Martin

The books , I want to read which i collect them from last 4 years but because of busy schedule of my Engineering and M.Tech studies I didn’t get time to read the book from by bucket list . The list of book , I collected are follow :

  1. 7 habits of Highly effective people by Stephen R. Covey.
  2. The Magic of Thinking Big by David Schwartz.
  3. Last lecture by Jeffrey Zaslow and Randy Pausch.
  4. The 48 laws of Power by Robert Greene.

But In 2020 , because of Covid-19 lockdown , there are lot of time available to invest in our habits which we didn’t get in day to day life busy schedule. In Maharashtra , India , there are lockdown since from 24 march 2020 .India’s government announced lockdown in India till 31 May 2020. Because of Covid-19 panademic lockdown , Indian Television channel re-telecast their 1988’s show Mahabharat and Ramayan which got record break viewers and huge fan following in the 2020.

The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.

Dr. Seuss

The books are our best friend , they never leave us in any situation . Sometimes , they perform different role in our life . Books are our teacher , our mentor , our friends . Anytime if you want them with you they are available to you. If we develop reading habit in day-to -day life then after 5 years of reading we are different person . Books develop us tremendously .

Traveling is also one of my bucket list but in 2020 its doesn’t seen easy to travel around state and country. Because of Covid-19 pandemic , The 2020 is worst year for traveler. but the best thing about the books are they let you travel without moving your feet. So the more you read , the more information you get and more knowledgeable you became.
