Pearl of wisdom

The most wonderful places to be are in someone’s thoughts, someone’s heart and someone’s prayers.

If you don’t like something, just take away its only power – attention.

Treat employees like they make a difference and they will.

No position in life is secured and no achievement can be permanent, unless built upon truth and justice.

We need to be beware of false knowledge; it is more dangerous than ignorance.

Optimism is a great ornament, be it in tough time or good time, always wear it. It will take you from good to great or bad to good.

Never expect, never assume.

HAPPY DIWALI AND HAPPY NEW YEAR

Samvat 2076 ended and 2077 is about to start.

Today – the day between Diwali and New Year inspired me to revisit the year and what I found a Year full of achievements.

Today I look back at this year AND I feel this was an extraordinary year.

We went through never experienced times …yes COVID pandemic. It threw new challenges…. everything came to standstill, no human contact, everyone confined to their own space. Entire world witnessed a jolt as if time had paused. Ah …what a situation it was.

POSITIVITY AND IT’S IMPACT ON OUR LIFE

Today a reader, tomorrow a leader.

Life is a math equation. In order to gain the most, you should know how to convert negatives into positives.

A person holding good thoughts with positive attitude can never be alone at any moment of life.

The world notices your efforts quicker than you think.

Don’t choose the one who is beautiful to the world, choose the one who makes your world beautiful.

If people are doubting how far you can go, go so far that you can’t hear them anymore.

Don’t only be close with someone who makes you happy. Be close with someone who can’t be happy without you. It makes a lot of difference in life.
