Don’t Take Anything Personally | Santhosh DR

Whatever people think of you is really about the image they have of you, and that image isn’t you. All their opinions about you really concern the character who lives in their story, not in yours. If someone gives you an opinion and says, “Hey, you look fat,” the truth is that this person is dealing with his or her own feelings, beliefs, and opinions. That person tried to send poison to you, and if you take it personally, it’s because you agree with whatever was said. As soon as you agree, you take that poison and it becomes yours. But if you don’t agree, whatever that person says will not affect you.

Taking things personally makes you easy prey for the predators who want to feed you their emotional poison. They can hook you easily with one little opinion, and because you take it personally, you eat all their poison. But if you do not take it personally, you are immune to the poison, and that is the gift of the second agreement.

By taking things personally, you make something big out of something so little, and you set yourself up to suffer for nothing. When you take things personally, you feel offended, and your reaction is to defend your beliefs. You have the need to be right and make others wrong, and this creates conflict. When you make it a strong habit not to take anything personally, you avoid many upsets in your life. Someone can intentionally send you emotional poison, and because you don’t eat it, your anger, jealousy, and envy will disappear. Even your sadness will simply disappear if you don’t take things personally.

Once you can see that nothing others say or do is about you, it doesn’t matter who gossips about you, who blames you, who rejects you, who disagrees with your point of view. When you take nothing personally, you don’t even bother to defend your point of view. Whatever people say doesn’t affect you because you are immune to their opinions and their emotional poison.

Don’t take anything personally is a beautiful tool of interaction with your own kind, human to human. And it’s a big ticket to personal freedom because you don’t have to rule your life according to other people’s opinions. This really frees you! You can do whatever you want to do, knowing that whatever you do has nothing to do with anyone but you.

Once you understand that all humans live in their own world, in their own dream, the second agreement is pure common sense: Don’t take anything personally.

Ugly – Anurag Kashyap’s Film. The Underrated One!

If there is one movie that you can watch and never be the same again, it would be Anurag Kashyap’s Ugly.

This movie portrays the ugliness of humans, our corrupt system of police and how capable it is but equally impotent, how much more we could have done but didn’t, and so much more.

It will leave you devastated inside and out, take it as a warning.

An Underrated Movie!

This movie gave me sleepless nights. One of the finest and underrated movie.. 😓 and the acting as well as the screens were so well done that it actually affects you big time.

Deeply! And the characterisation, damn that was too good. No hero, only villains against villains.

Forgive & Forget!

Live & Let Live

Live & Let Live

We’ve all heard it a thousand times,“You need to forgive and forget.” But is this truly how we feel? When someone really hurts you, do you still want to forgive that person? Forgiving seems almost unnatural, right?

Life is short. With an average age of around 60 years of which a good 20 odd years spent in sleep and resting, we have hardly 40-45 years of waking time. If one takes off the time spent in childhood pranks and old age sickness, one hardly has 20-25 years of productive time. This is just too short to be wasted on undesirable pursuits and practices..When we feel hurt and remember hurt, we are only re-living the experience over and over again. And when we hope, pray or plan to hurt others or take revenge, we are going through the same pain again. Anger is like carrying a burning coal in your hand with an intent of throwing it at others. You are only hurting yourself.

Great saying: “There are no mistakes. Only lessons”.
To forgive someone is the highest, most beautiful form of love. You might just find that you get a sense of peace and happiness in return 🙂
Instead, if you can ignore, forgive and forget, you are instantly relieved of the burden and find instant peace. It gives you more time for productive pursuits, ideating or creating things that bring joy to yourself and others around you. It creates a positive image about you and makes you irresistible in the eyes of others.
Gandhi once said “The weak can never forgive. Forgiveness is the attribute of the strong.”  It takes a strong person to face pain head-on, forgive, and release it.
Think of children and this is what distinguishes them from adults. They have no ego and forgive easily. This is what makes them so lovable and endearing to us. So do yourself a big favour – start forgiving and forgetting from this moment onwards. The past traits and image will fall off immediately and you will reap the benefits form this instance onwards. Enjoy Life !!
If none of the above appeals to you, then you might want to take the advice of Oscar Wilde:
“Always forgive your enemies. Nothing annoys them so much.”

Problem, Problems & Solution!

Problem

The whole problem with the world is that fools and fanatics are always so certain of themselves, and wiser people so full of doubts.

We are often confronted with innumerable problems in our daily lives. It is usually unwelcome in our lives and we would prefer if the problems never arose. Each of us has a unique way to deal with life’s problems or challenges as one might like to call them. Have we observed our own peculiar traits with respect to how we deal with our problems ?

“Never cry because you have mountains of problem in your hands to solve. Always smile because each problems will someday resolve.”

Before I even talk about the preferred way of dealing with the little challenges, let me first state that these are really events that remove the boredom from our lives and bring in excitement. If we were to look at the challenges in this new light, we might even welcome them and look forward to the next one!

“Life is not easy. We all have problems-even tragedies-to deal with, and luck has nothing to do with it. Bad luck is only the superstitious excuse for those who don’t have the wit to deal with the problems of life.”

Instead to complaining about the problems and wishing that someone else deals with it or procrastinating about it, I feel the right way would be to think of solutions to resolve the problems. It should be viewed as puzzles that life throws up and our responsibility is to rack our brains and come up with the right answers.

Likewise, in an organisational context, one should always use the approach of identifying problems and coming up with the solutions. It is a good trait to be able to spot the problem but no one appreciates someone who is always criticizing or complaining but is unable to provide the direction for resolving the open issues.

People who complain fall into the group of negative behaviors while solution oriented people are seen as positive and find recognition and rewards waiting for them all the time.

“Your attachment to unhealthy people and bad habits, which offer you no real control, is why you’re spiritually dying and living a life out of balance.”
So, Which side are you aligned on ?

“The key is this: Meet today’s problems with today’s strength. Don’t start tackling tomorrow’s problems until tomorrow. You do not have tomorrow’s strength yet. You simply have enough for today.”

Good Message to all people out there!! Must Read!!

Soulful Tree!

Soulful Tree!

A successful businessman was growing old and knew it was time to choose a successor to take over the business.

Instead of choosing one of his Directors or his children, he decided to do something different. He called all the young executives in his company together.

He said, “It is time for me to step down and choose the next C.E.O..

I have decided to choose one of you.”

The young executives were shocked, but the boss continued.

“I am going to give each one of you a SEED today – one very special SEED. I want you to plant the seed, water it, and come back here one year from today with what you have grown from the seed I have given you. I will then judge the plants that you bring, and the one I choose will be the next C.E.O..”

One man, named Jim, was there that day and he, like the others, received a seed. He went home and excitedly told his wife the story. She helped him get a pot, soil and compost and he planted the seed.

Everyday he would water it and watch to see if it had grown. After about three weeks, some of the other executives began to talk about their seeds and the plants that were beginning to grow.

Jim kept checking his seed but nothing ever grew. Three weeks, four weeks, five weeks went by, still nothing. By now others were talking about their plants, but Jim didn’t have a plant and he felt like a failure.

Six months went by — still nothing in Jim’s pot. He just knew he had killed his seed. Everyone else had trees and tall plants, but he had nothing. Jim didn’t say anything to his colleagues, however, he just kept watering and fertilizing the soil – he so wanted the seed to grow.

A year finally went by and all the young executives of the company brought their plants to the C.E.O. for inspection. Jim told his wife that he wasn’t going to take an empty pot. But she asked him to be honest about what happened.

Jim felt sick to his stomach, it was going to be the most embarrassing moment of his life, but he knew his wife was right.

He took his empty pot to the boardroom. When Jim arrived, he was amazed at the variety of plants grown by the other executives. They were beautiful — in all shapes and sizes. Jim put his empty pot on the floor and many of his colleagues laughed, a few felt sorry for him!

When the C.E.O. arrived, he surveyed the room and greeted his young executives. Jim just tried to hide in the back.

“My, what great plants, trees, and flowers you have grown,” said the C.E.O.. “Today one of you will be appointed the next C.E.O.!”

All of a sudden, the C.E.O. spotted Jim at the back of the room with his empty pot. He ordered the Financial Director to bring him to the front. Jim was terrified. He thought, “The C.E.O. knows I’m a failure! Maybe he will have me fired!”

When Jim got to the front, the C.E.O. asked him what had happened to his seed – Jim told him the story.

The C.E.O. asked everyone to sit down except Jim. He looked at Jim, and then announced to the young executives, “Behold your next Chief Executive Officer! His name is Jim!”

Jim couldn’t believe it. Jim couldn’t even grow his seed.

“How could he be the new C.E.O.?” the others said.

Then the C.E.O. said,

“One year ago today, I gave everyone in this room a seed. I told you to take the seed, plant it, water it, and bring it back to me today. But I gave you all boiled seeds; they were dead – it was not possible for them to grow.

All of you, except Jim, have brought me trees and plants and flowers. When you found that the seed would not grow, you substituted another seed for the one I gave you. Jim was the only one with the courage and honesty to bring me a pot with my seed in it. Therefore, he is the one who will be the new Chief Executive Officer!”

* If you plant honesty, you will reap trust

* If you plant goodness, you will reap friends

* If you plant humility, you will reap greatness

* If you plant perseverance, you will reap contentment

* If you plant consideration, you will reap perspective

* If you plant hard work, you will reap success

* If you plant forgiveness, you will reap reconciliation

So, be careful what you plant now; it will determine what you will reap later.
