It’s Never too Late to Start 
Today’s world is full of hustle & bustle. Everyone is trying to keep pace with this fast & moving world. Everyone is trying to grab each opportunity that comes in their way. Due to our failure we feel as if we are left behind. We start losing our confidence and feel that now we are too old to prosper. It’s too late to start again. We forget to remember that it’s never too late to start.  There is no age barrier to start. Always keep in mind that age can never stop you from flourishing until you want to 

There are many living examples who started and succeeded in their late years like Laura Wilder, Harry Bernstein, Gladys Burrill, etc. These personalities succeeded at the age of 62 to 92 years. We should never give up, we should always push ourselves forward and will surely achieve our goal with the light of hope. 
Surely it may be a slow progress but remember it is still advancement. You will always reach your goal if you have a positive approach and strong determination. Seeing you people may doubt your abilities. If you have belief in yourself and passionate, then you will prove that the doubts against you were wrong. 

If you want to make your dreams come true and become reality you have to face all the challenges, criticism that comes in your way bravely. If you want to enjoy the fruits of your hard work you need to be determined, courageous, hopeful, patient etc.

Managing Your Emotions 
Success in life does not depend on what you have but on the ability to manage your emotions, how you relate to others. It helps in understanding others, their feelings and handling relationships. Social competence will have the biggest effect on everyday life.

Emotions play an important part in memory, imagination and all mental activities. Like our IQ, we have EQ. It also involves thinking about how you feel. You become aware of how you feel just by thinking about it. EQ helps you in using emotions in achieving goals. They not only help in finding out what we feel but also what we want to feel.

For example, if you know that you are feeling very angry at the moment, you would want to control your anger. If you are feeling sad at the moment you would want to control sadness and try to be happy. If you are feeling lonely now, you would make efforts to find friends. What you want to improve in your present state of mind will become your goal. 

Look around you and see how many facilities are provided to you today. But strangely the present generation is emotionally more troubled than the generations of the past. Children, especially teenagers, today are more troubled, more angry, more unruly and more prone to anxiety and worry. Why is it so? 
Teenagers or adolescents need more grounding in emotional management.

It means you should have the ability to choose the right emotion for the right occasion. For example knowing when it is necessary to be more angry or less angry. Wise teachers and parents maintain calm, do not lose their tempers easily when dealing with rudeness, laziness or rebellion of their wards. They remain calm but assertive, cool but confident. It has a better effect on correcting an errant child. Their maturity has given them a balance, they manage their emotions. Thus, what is important is the emotional management and control over thoughts as it is the key to happy and successful life.

Love
Love is a feeling of deep affection. Love is an interpersonal relationship between two people. It creates an environment in which everyone feels secure and safe. It is a parameter through which we can attach with each other deeply.
Someone told a great line that in the educational system scholars should be given love not thought, because they have their own thoughts. But nowadays students are not being given love, but they are only pressurized by the educator.
Love plays a vital role in the system of education. An educator can change a student's life if the educator is caring (lovable) towards the students, he can teach anything to him or her & along with that the students will also show their interest in hearing. They will learn with more curiosity & according to our thought, things that cannot be solved by any technique or method can be done by the help of love.

Leadership
Leadership refers to the quality of leading people. Probably, it is one of the most important aspects of life. Above all, Leadership has led to the progress of human civilization. Without good Leadership, no organization or group can succeed. Furthermore, not everyone has this quality. This is because effective Leadership requires certain important characteristics.
Confidence is the most quality. A leader must have strong self-confidence. A person lacking in confidence can never be a good leader. A person must be confident enough to ensure others follow him. The leader must have confidence in his decisions and actions. If he is unsure, then how can people have the desire to follow him.

Honesty is another notable quality of a leader. Honesty and Integrity are important to earn the love of followers. Above all, honesty is essential to win the trust of the people. Probably, every Leadership which loses trust is bound to fail. 

Mahatma Gandhi was an excellent example of a good leader. He was a staunch believer in non-violence. With his brilliant Leadership skills, he made the British leave India.
A good leader must be an excellent innovator. He must display a creative attitude in his work. Most noteworthy, innovation is a guarantee of survival of a group or innovation. Without creative thinking, progress is not possible. To conclude, Leadership is required in probably every sphere of life. Good leadership is the door to success.

 Overcome a Disability
Any restriction or lack of ability to perform an activity in a manner or within the range considered normal for the human beings, resulting from impairment is termed as disability. Surveys reveal people with disabilities consistently report a quality of life as good as, or sometimes even better than, that of non-disabled people. As they know that they have to live their life with this disability and really they enjoy every second of life just to make it special.
 It can be incredibly difficult to accept your disability. Acceptance can feel like giving in—throwing in the towel on life and your future. But refusing to accept the reality of your limitations keeps you stuck. It prevents you from moving forward, making the changes you need to make, and finding new goals.
You can be happy, even in a “broken” body. It may not seem like it now, but the truth is that you can build a happy, meaningful life for yourself, even if you’re never able to walk, hear, or see like you used to. It may help to search out inspiring stories of people with disabilities who are thriving and living lives they love. You can learn from others who have gone before you, and their successes can help you stay motivated during tough times.
There are some ways which will help us to overcom, e a disability they are as follows:
1. Stay focused on the positives instead of the negatives. 
2. Don’t ever give up. 
3. Challenge yourself and try new things every day.
4. Each day you should ask yourself if you’re happy. 
5. Smile. 
6. Don’t compare yourself with  others and find time to celebrate your little accomplishments. 
7. Be polite and stay calm with obnoxious people.
8. Let yourself grieve and go through all five stages of grief about your disability.
9. Accept your disability.
10. Do your best. 
At last but not least I would like to say that enjoy your life with what you have.  Don’t spoil it just running behind what you don’t have.
Thank you

Smart Work

Smart Work means minimum effort which causes the maximum impact on result. Smart work is based on how it is planned managed organized and controlled to achieve the goal. Smart work saves one's time and can find means to reduce ones work by logical and innovative ideas. For example in hard work it consumes more time to complete work like writing a speech on a topic by reading books, where as smart work we could take help of internet and technology through which less time is required as well as more and detail information comes within a few seconds. For smart work the phrase work smarter, not harder perfectly fits in. It means every time using physical power is not necessary, many times mental power is also required. Working Smart means that what are top priorities and what you can do later , so one can focus on what is important. Due to Smart work satisfaction is fulfilled. It also effects on a good result. Working Smart does not mean being lazy or cunning. Working hard is applying hard work in a smart way. It is not hard how we work, but how we get it done! Actually both hard work and smart work go hand-in-hand but smart work is considered better because it is time saving in monetary terms and effective also.

THANK YOU MOM & DAD.......
God doesn't bless or give special child to bless or special parents .
It's all about our thinking , we only made this all .
All kids are equal for God as a parent whether it's a special child or a normal child, for a parent the special child is also their lifeline , their hope of surviving in the magical world.
THANK YOU GOD , MOM AND DAD

Corruption - A Global Issue 
I guess corruption is not a new word to us. Nowadays we are flooded with corruption-related topics in our news. Okay, think about it, you are watering your plants but the pot has a hole below. What to do you think, is that water helpful for your plants. Of course, not at all. This is what happens in today's world. Our whole system has a hole and despite our knowledge, we are just ignoring it.
Corruption is not a national problem, it is a global problem. Almost, every country faces it due to which it affects the growth and development of the nation in all aspects like social, economic and political. It has made its base in both developing and well-developed countries. Also, in our country, it is available from the historical time of the Mughal and sultanate period. It is proved from the sources that the ancients also worried about different types of corruption as well, like extortion, patronage, and embezzlement.
Nowadays corruption is common in the whole world . The main region of corruption is politics . All politicians are not corrupted but couple of politicians do corruption and that's why all the political parties are being corrupted.
It's our duty as the citizens of our country to help in eradicating corruption from this world.

Job Security Ruining Child's Career Dreams                          
Our dreams drive our lives. Dreams provide a sense of stability in the unstable and unpredictable times. But often our parents’ expectations become a burden on our shoulders and their dream becomes an obligation. Many parents in India tend to impose their decision on kids when it comes to their career building. While they intend to make their kids doctors, scientists and engineers, they unknowingly kill their child's innocence and set them up for a lifetime rat race showing complete disregard for their dreams and happiness. In our country, the common mentality among our parents is that kids are too immature to know what is good for them. While this might be true to some extent, do they ever consider what interests their child? A hand that can paint beautiful is handed a stethoscope. A mind that has extraordinary power to weave stories is made to solve questions and figure of math problems. Can a person who is made to give up on their dreams to for the sake of a secure career ever find happiness? Is it fair for parents to force children into fulfilling their dreams if when they know that the career path curated for them is of no interest to their child? Some reason why parents impose their dreams on children:            
1. Competition: Be it the kids of a neighbor, a relative or their friend, parents enter their kids eainto unsolicited competition with every child they know. With different interests, unique technique and retaining power, everyone is different. The constant comparison not only adds to the pressure but also gives them a sense of inferiority thus adversely affecting their self confidence.   2. Career myths: A good score in tenth grade means you are fit for the science stream; one cannot earn by writing books, playing sports, clicking photographs etc. Are engineering and medical field only reputed career options. Parents are not willing to let their children take a different route or a road unknown to them as they afraid their child will fail. But isn't life is all about falling and rising again? One should remember that ' Risk Takers Are Money Makers'. I am lucky that I have parents which understand my interest and support me to achieve that. Hope every parent reading this will also understand their child’s interest and keep a support for them to achieve it as Dr. Abdul Kalam sir mentioned in his autobiography that 'Children come through you but not for you '.
