I once hired a taxi for Rs 250/- to reach my place of stay in Delhi. While the driver was on wheels I started conversing with him about his family. Both of us were around the same age and have sons of same age. On arriving my place of stay, I paid him the agreed taxi fare of Rs 250/-, thanked him and gave him a chocolate I had in my pocket for his son. As he was walking back to the car he paused briefly turned walked towards me and returned Rs 100/- telling me that distance run was only worth Rs 150/-. While he was talking I could see that he underwent an amazing transformation, his tanned face was wreathed with smiles and gratitude. Show interest in people, if you try, you can like everybody and everybody will like you and this will continuously make meaning to your life. Seek out, do not limit yourself to a few friends when there are so many likeable people around you.
3. Nurture a warm heart
A warm heart brings fulfillment in your life. A warm heart radiates love and warmth. Our parents, peers, spouses, children and neighbors will be happy to receive the warmth and love. The entire community around you will get transformed and shall reciprocate love and warmth.
4. Have a purpose
All of us want a life filled with joy, purpose and meaning. Purpose is vital for mans survival and health. Discovering a purpose for your life and keeping it with you on a daily basis and working hard on yourself to the point where you become that purpose gives meaning to your life. It helps you to do meaningful hard work by which you can explore your talents and ability that can bring meaningful results in life.
Some people just shine. They are cheerful, pleasant and joyful. They are positive and enthusiastic. They are always optimistic and right in what they say and do. There is a glow around them.
I once requested a priest to visit my ailing friend admitted in a hospital. I was least surprised when my ailing friend called to say- hi vinod, he is amazing, I am upbeat, happy and feel good after talking with him,despite all his illness.
A powerful and clam mind is required to influence people around you with humor and timing. You should learn to radiate, and be like a radiant sun in life, shining on everyone equally. Radiate your love and light to all around you. Thats when thoughts become things and give meaning to your life and make you repeat words of St Paul.
I have fought the good fight. I have finished the course, I have kept the faith. In the future there is laid up for me the crown of righteousness which the lord, the righteous judge, will award me on that day
