साहस 
जीवन में कई क्षण ऐसे आते हैं जब हमें ऊहापोह की स्थिति छोड़कर साहस दिखाने की आवश्यकता पड़ती है।  साहस का अर्थ केवल शारीरिक युद्ध से नहीं है। जीवन में कई ऐसे अवसर आते हैं जब हमें निर्णय लेने में परेशानियों का सामना करना पड़े। कई बार स्थिति गंभीरतम हो जाती है, तब व्यक्ति किसी निर्णय पर नहीं पहुँच पाता। ऐसी परिस्थितियों से जूझना और स्वयं को तटस्थ रखना ही साहस है। इन परिस्थितियों का सामना केवल एक बार ही नहीं करना पड़ता बल्कि यह तो सीढी की तरह है, हर कदम पर हमें साहस दिखाने की आवश्यकता पड़ेगी। 
ऐसे कितने ही उदाहरण भरे पड़े हैं जब विपरीत परिस्थितियों में लोगों ने साहस दिखाकर बेहतर काम करके दिखाया। अधिकांशतः नकारात्मक सोच रखते हुए नकारात्मक परिणाम की कल्पना कर लेते हैं, इसी वजह से कोई नया काम करने में कतराते हैं। सोचिए, वैज्ञानिक कितना साहस दिखाते हुए किसी औषधि की खोज करते हैं परंतु कई बार परिणाम अपेक्षाकृत नहीं मिलते।
 इस कारण वे घबराकर या पराजित होकर अपना कार्य बंद नहीं कर देते हैं बल्कि फिर से नई ऊर्जा के साथ जुट जाते हैं और सफलता प्राप्त करते हैं। इसका ही परिणाम है कि आज विज्ञान के क्षेत्र में हमने इतनी तरक्की की। यदि सकारात्मकता के साथ किसी काम में जुट जाते हैं और फिर भी असफल  हो जाते हैं तो भी हम बहुत कुछ सीख सकेंगे, की हुई गलतियों को समझ कर उसे दोहराएँगे नहीं। और यदि सफल हो जाते हैं तब तो खुशी का ठिकाना ही नहीं रहेगा। 
एक शिक्षक के रूप में हमें कई स्थानों पर साहस दिखाने की आवश्यकता पड़ती है। यदि बच्चों को साहसी बनाना है या ये मूल्य उनमें विकसित करना है तो शिक्षक को स्वयं ऐसा बनना पड़ेगा। क्योंकि बालक देखकर सीखता है जैसा आचरण उसके शिक्षक का होगा वैसा आचरण ही एक बालक द्वारा दोहराया जाएगा। सीखना प्रक्रिया सतत चलायमान है।
साहस के साथ धैर्य की भी आवश्यकता पड़ती है। कई बार किए हुए कामों का परिणाम देरी से मिलता है ऐसे में धैर्य की आवश्यकता होती है। परिणामों को प्राप्त होने में निर्धारित समय से अधिक भी लग सकता है। इसलिए नए काम के साहस के साथ धैर्य की भी आवश्यकता रहती है। अगर वांछित परिणाम मिलने में देर हो जाए तो सकारात्मकता के साथ धैर्य से प्रतीक्षा करनी चाहिए। अपने कार्यों में संलग्न रहे और सृजनात्मकता को भी समय देते रहे, निश्चित रूप से सफलता मिलेगी।

Human Rights Day
Human Rights Day commemorates the day the General Assembly of the UN adopted and proclaimed the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. The UDHR is one of UN’s major achievements and the first enunciation of human rights across the world.
Adopted on 10th December 1948, the Declaration stipulates universal values and a shared standard of achievement for everyone in every country. While the Declaration is not a binding document, it inspired over 60 human rights instruments that today make a common human rights standard. It is the most translated document around the globe available in over 500 languages.
The 2018 commemoration of Human Rights Day will mark the beginning of a year-long celebration of 70 years since the international community adopted the Declaration. We celebrate all our inalienable rights and freedoms, including a right to education, a decent living, health care and a right to live free from any form of discrimination.
Despite the efforts to protect human rights, the hostility toward human rights and those who defend them continues to rise. As a result, this year’s Human Rights Day advocates for everyone to stand up for their rights and those of others civil, economic, political and cultural rights. Additionally, the day aims to enlighten us about how our rights are a foundation of sustainable development and peaceful societies. The day also acknowledges the advocates and defenders of human rights around the world.

Good Health 
Health is the well being of our body physically, emotionally and mentally. But the definition of health is different for everybody. For some people, being healthy is just having an average weight, for some, it is like just proper functioning of the body, for others it may relate to having just no disease. 
In my opinion, this is based on the factor of how a body reacts. For example, if the body is surrounded by a happy environment, then it is happy, and positive energy is released, helping develop good health. Being happy and stable from mind makes you emotionally strong, mentally fit and motivates you to become physically fit and fine. 
Health is something which can be acquired just by having peace of our mind. If the body is surrounded by an unhappy environment, the case will be reversed, then it is unhappy, and negative energy is released, and we become unhealthy. We can also make some of the following steps as our daily routine to develop good health and stay fit.
1. Go for morning and evening walk.
2. Do yoga for having a fit body.
3. Do meditation for peace of mind as well as for inner peace.
4. Take a balanced diet which contains all basic nutrients that are necessary for our body.
5. Eat fruits regularly to protect yourself from diseases.  
Most importantly, one must have inner peace and happiness as it is a source from which our happiness germinates. So stay healthy to live a happier life.

Soft Influencing 
If you come around a post, a story, a meme, or a hashtag on social media, please don't follow the herd blindly and start sharing it. The reason is that you all have been brainwashed in some or other way, which is known as Soft Influencing. It involves shaping the preferences of others through appeal and attraction. 
All these mainstream idols have been fed a golden spoon of dollars to share such content which might not seem to be harassing or targeting anything, but they build a particular image of something deep down your subconscious mind.
For example:- The latest Baba ka Dhaba controversy, where most social media users didn't have any idea about who's right or who's wrong, but still everyone was becoming the jury of this activity. The heart saddening thing is that so-called social media influencers are so corrupted that they can defame their own caste, society, country or even their own family. 
There could be a hundred-page book where I can factually prove that soft influencing is damaging us mentally daily. The only hope is that the new generation should be smart enough to understand the dual side. Importantly, they should distinguish between influence and manipulation and learn how to protect yourself from the unwanted influence of others.

Seek Discomfort 
Seek discomfort means a lot to humanity. Seek means to try to find and discomfort means to go out of comfort zone. Seek discomfort means to challenge yourself. It is to go beyond the "safety limits" and "comfort zone". 
To me, it means getting out of your comfort zone as often as possible so that you can be a stronger and more experienced version of yourself. For example, a person who travels a lot becomes more comfortable with different cultural customs, foods, and lifestyles.
Seek discomfort, in my opinion, is one of the ways to success - it reminds us to achieve our dreams and also gives an adventurous life. There is a creator group named 'Yes Theory' who follows this motto too.
Similarly, we can overcome our fears and become comfortable in discomfort in many ways like,
Pushing our limits.
Meeting with different people.
Working hard for what we aspire.

Willpower 
Willpower may be an attitude that exists in our mind. Given a troublesome task, if you've got thoughts that it'd not work, then that's what you'll get versus somebody who thought that it'll work. For instance, it is usually the mind's facility within the Olympics games over the athlete's perception of what they will do. With the Gold Medals in their mind, they'll endure the temporary hardship throughout their daily coaching to induce wherever they need to be. Remember, ne'er ever hand over on things that matter.
Many folks don't understand the importance of self-command in life. For instance, you recognize that you simply have a race returning and you'll stop uptake dangerous stuff. Dominant your diet may be a real challenge because it needs determination and harnessing your mental capability to form your material body simply do what you would like through your self-command. Once dominant, your diet becomes a habit, you will not crave for unhealthy food.
There is a link between motivation and self-command as you wish to understand why you would like to resist a particular temptation or work on one thing difficult. for instance, associate alcoholic father need to prevent drinking so that his son wouldn't get older to be like him. The stronger your motivation for doing a particular factor can increase your self-command and stop any harmful behaviour or assist you to overcome any demanding challenges.
Willpower plays a vital role in our life and effort a self-command attitude may be a journey and not a leap. Thoughts aren't facts, by dynamic your thinking, if you'll modify negative thoughts to positive, so a full new world of prospects is disclosed to you.

कंप्यूटर क्रांति
आज का युग कंप्यूटर का युग है। हर काम में कंप्यूटर का उपयोग किया जाता है। आजकल तो स्कूल स्तर से ही कंप्यूटर की शिक्षा दी जाने लगी है। तकनीक के क्षेत्र में आजकल के बालक अधिक जानकार हो गए हैं। इस क्षेत्र में जब भी कोई नया परिवर्तन होता है नई पीढ़ी उसे तुरंत स्वीकार कर लेती है। हर क्षेत्र में हम डिजिटल होते जा रहे हैं, इसीलिए यह जरूरी भी हो जाता है कि समय के साथ परिवर्तित होते रहे। तभी हम दुनिया के साथ मुकाबला कर सकेंगे।
कोरोना महामारी ने बहुत कुछ इस पर ही आश्रित कर दिया है। जो लोग इससे दूर थे उन्हें भी सब कुछ सीखना पड़ा। सीखने की कोई उम्र नहीं होती, नई चीजें सीखनी चाहिए। कुछ लोग ऐसे भी हैं जो अभी तक इन चीजों को स्वीकार नहीं कर रहे हैं। उन्हें स्वीकार करना पड़ेगा।
इस समय शिक्षा भी डिजिटल प्लेटफॉर्म पर आ गई है। पिछले 8-9 महीनों से पढ़ाई का काम भी डिजिटल माध्यम से हो रहा है। नवीनतम जानकारियाँ, सूचनाएँ, ऑनलाइन कक्षाएँ और कई गतिविधियाँ हम डिजिटल माध्यम से कर रहे हैं। इसमें बहुत कुछ सुविधाजनक है तो कुछ खामियाँ भी है।बहुत सारी चीजें एक ही स्थान पर आ गई है। महामारी के संक्रमण से बचना और शिक्षा को जारी रखना संभव हो पाया है। 
आज हमारा देश भी डिजिटल हो रहा है और अन्य देशों के साथ प्रगति के पथ पर हैं। इन सब में इसके दुरुपयोग की आ जाती है। सही समय पर सही वस्तु का सही इस्तेमाल ही विकास का दरवाजा खोल सकता है। किंतु यदि सुविधाओं का दुरुपयोग करना शुरू कर देंगे तो वही हमारे विकास में बाधक बन सकती है। इसलिए यह आवश्यक हो जाता है कि हम इंटरनेट द्वारा प्राप्त है सूचनाओं एवं सुविधाओं का सदुपयोग करें, दुरुपयोग करने से बचते रहे।

Sports & Games
Sports and games are activities that make a person more comfortable with high level of efficiency. It removes mental exhaustion and enables us to do any difficult task. In the modern education system, sports have been made an integral part of education to make education interesting, stress free and enjoyable. Education is considered incomplete without sports because education with sports activities attracts more attention towards the study of children.
Sports activities are very essential for all children and youth as it encourages physical and mental development. It improves children's memory level, concentration level and learning ability. A young child can be a well-known national or international level player if he practices sports from his childhood.
Children should participate in all sports competitions held in their schools and colleges to overcome their hesitation and move on. Sports and games are a good career for a good player in the future. It provides us opportunity to develop in life and earn money, name and fame. These days, sports facilities are being developed in all the schools and colleges in both rural and urban areas, so that the students can create interest in games.

Motivation
Motivation is very important for everyone to live. We can't live our daily life without motivation. It is a presence of purpose and wish to achieve something in our daily life to make a career. It is a good habit which is possessed by a good human being. If we motivate a person to do something and he/she achieves his/her goals, then he or she will always be thankful to us .If a person faces failure in life then we can save his or her life by motivating him or her. Motivational words can change a person’s life completely. It is an art of life skill .It is also a key to success because it helps us to work towards our goals. Motivation makes our life perfect and peaceful. It also makes us a good human being.

Self Confidence
Self -confidence is a combination of a state of mind and a strong feeling of our self-belief.It is that voice which comes from inside and gives us a boost to do something which fears you.In today's day- to-day life, there is no place for those who lacks self-confidence. Many people have achieved their goals with the help of self confidence. 
Self confident people seem to be at ease with themselves and their work. They invite trust and inspire confidence in others too. It's not easy to be confident yourself, particularly if you are naturally self critical. Self-confidence is understanding that you trust your own judgment and abilities. We gain a sense of self-efficacy when we see ourselves mastering skills and achieving goals. This encourages us to work hard in a particular area to succeed. So I conclude that self-confidence is the key to success.

Importance of Education
First of all, Education helps in spreading data in society. This can be maybe the foremost noteworthy facet of Education. There’s a fast propagation of information in an informed society. What is more, there's a transfer of information from one generation to a different through Education.
Education helps within the development and innovation of technology. Most noteworthy, the additional education, the additional technology can unfold. vital developments in war instrumentality, medicine, computers, come about thanks to Education.
Education may be a ray of sunshine within the darkness. It actually may be a hope for a decent life. Education may be a basic right of each Human on this Planet. To deny this right is evil. Uneducated youth is at the worst factor for Humanity. Above all, the governments of all countries should guarantee to unfold Education.
