Its all about the way you talk and the way you smile...

Dear All,

Again I am inspired by somebody who is very close to me, and as a result I forced myself to write this blog. I am writing this post again on smile because what I have felt so far is "Your smile is everything from which you can create happiness around you"

The way of talk and the way of smile are the biggest things to make yours and othere's life with full of happiness. As you know I have been posting all my experiences and personal feelings on inspiration, Here I would like to share one more......

I was staying with some of my friends in Ahmedabad who are very close to me, I have learn so many things from individuals. I have a big friend circle, from them one is very close to me and I am socially attached with him too. He was perusing his Masters in Business Management (MBA). He is a very funny and fun loving buddy and always eager to know new things in his area. He has lot of good qualities like "to make people happy", "the way of talk", "the way of smile" etc.... What I have seen is, 'wherever he goes he use to make relationship easily with anybody with sweet talk and smile'.

We use to go out for food at Manek Chowk before he (my cousin) came to Ahmedabad. Then he shifted to Ahmedabad to finish his Master Degree, I arranged his stay with me. We use to go out frequently for food at the same place (Manek Chowk). Interesting thing was, 'he had created a good relationship with the food court owners within a 2-3 visits !'. Not even with the owners, he had created a good relationship with servants as well. I was really wondering how can it possible in 2-3 visits....! But I marked his way of talk and smile and realized that He was able to make people happy with his talk and smile. People doesn't need only money, they need something more and that is 'sweet smile and sweet talk'.

We have to pay money if we want buy something, there are no doubt in that. Paying money is not enough to create happiness around but paying it with smile and little sweet talk will definitely create happiness across. I could easily see his way of communication with little smile always on his face. I am seeing the same quality and encouraged myself to follow the same. You can also try and I am damn sure that you will get the result soon...! Try and enjoy your life with happiness around....!!

somebody was crying whenever I was flying....!

"Somebody was crying when I was flying....!"

Statement looks hard to digest. But if you think emotionally, pass your time with somebody with emotion then you will definitely realize its meaning and finally you will end up with the power for digesting....!

As you know I have been posting my experience, Some days back I have realized something, I could see the tears in somebodie's eyes because of the emotional attachments. I had spent some years in Ahmedabad Gujarat and during my stay in Gujarat I have developed good relationship, I have made so many friends with emotional attachments. When I have decided to leave Gujarat to explore myself, I could easily see tears in so many people's/loved ones' eyes who were/are very close to me.

I have spent couple of years in Bangalore and made lot of friends there with good relationship. But as you know as life moves, we too, I was in a situation to leave those all friendly environment too. I have made my mind to come back to my native place, Gujarat because of so many reasons. The same situations occurred there too. I could easily read individual's face when I declared that I am going back in couple of weeks. Even I was wondering when God have started crying (rain started in Bangalore) the moment I booked my flight ticket...! I knew that rain is not new things in Bangalore, but still something clicked and as a result thought came to my mind "Somebody is crying when I am flying" and get motivated to write this blog......!

I have seen these kind of situations with some of my friends couple of years back when he decided to explore his carrier and went to USA. But during those days I was thinking why people are crying (what I mean is emotionally be in sad situation) but when it comes to me, I have realized the exact situations and felt the emotional attachments.

Dont lose your smile because there are people who relies on it..!

Some time people just don't understand and forget the truth that there are other people who are living because of his/her smile. We all are living in a world where we are engaged with each other with different relationship and trust. We all have people around us who are living their life just because of our smile. As an human being people gives us an smile or frown knowingly or unknowingly.

Sometimes life may seem unfair, the present unsure and the future unclear but as we journey along the road, remember "don't lose your smile as there are always your loved ones who relies on your beautiful smiles"

I have been in the critical situation in my life, I was really in tough situation where I could not stop my mind to think on negative side and finally I lost my smile. But then after some time I realized that as we journey along each day of our lives things will come with different surprises and try to accept the things which is fact. But that time was really bad in my life as I went through unexpected and unacceptable things. I was in a state where I could not smile to friends, my brother, my mom, dad. Every day they keep calling me with the hope to receive my beautiful smile but I could not. Mom was asking me everyday on phone "su thayu appu (she use to call me 'Appu') beta?" It means what happen my son?  Answer was always without smile.

Days were passing and life was going in sadness. After some days I have realized that all my loved ones who are very close to me are also in state where they could not smile to each other. They were waiting for my smile, why is he not smiling? where is his smile gone? etc... I though a lot and realized the reason behind all my loved one's smile. And that was my smile..! Finally I made my mind to accept the fact and tried to be happy and keep people happy around me.

I started following a rule called "when life gets tough we should just play pretend"
I am happy now and feeling happy with lots of smiles around me.....!

So keep smiling with Ankit...!

Life is like a bicycle. The moment we stop pedaling, we start losing momentum.

Do you remember a time when you had a big and lofty dream? Maybe you wanted to be a movie star in art house films, doctor, or a master mind engineer. Perhaps you dreamed of crossing the ocean in a sailboat and you may have worked hard toward achieving that dream. But slowly you drifted away from your heart's desire. What happened?

The answer is easy: You got distracted! or You got confused. You were no longer in rhythm with who you are.

There are lot of reasons because of those you might got confused, disturbed and some time even hurt. As a human being we may come across in situation no matter how much strong we are! I have come across a situations where I have got confused, disturbed and that's where I have written a blog on "choices makes you confuse"

I have come across a situations where I got hurt by somebody who is very close to me. But I have consider it as a unexpected surprise of my life and that's where I have written a blog called "Life is full of surprise and we are one of them" So whenever you feel that you are hurt or demotivated by somebody don't stop pedaling as life is like Bicycle, if you do so, your life may stop and you may lose.

Every situations are part of life and I have been forcing myself to accept all things instead of hurting myself or putting myself in confusing state. It is very tough thing but trust me, if you able to do these and try to keep yourself motivated to live your life then you will live your life like king size...!

Life is like a bicycle. The moment we stop pedaling, we start losing momentum. So don't stop pedaling and enjoy the voyage of life...

I wish you and myself a incredible success!

Sketch your future but do it with pencil....

I have been writing many a times that life is unpredictable and very complex! most of us are sketching our future and making our future plans. Most of us are living in a hope that we are pretty much sure about our future.

I am not denying, we should live in a hope and we should make our future goal. By doing that, we are deciding our road map for future. By making a goal and sketching our future we internally triggering our self for motivation and enthusiasm.

But what I feel is making goal, planning and sketching future are needed but we should always do it with pencil so that we can easily modify it as and when it requires. As we all know life is totally unpredictable. So we may have to modify our sketch accordingly depending on the situations. But please keep in mind that we should only modify the sketch, we should not remove the portion of sketch as lines of sketch are our path for future and success. If situation is tough and life is complex then sketch may have long lines and if everything is fine then sketch will be with small and clear lines.

So always "Sketch your future but do it with pencil.... " a very small statement but really complex to understand and follow..!

Stay Hungry Stay Foolish

Stay Hungry Stay Foolish………!
This massage was given by Steve Jobs, Apple’s CEO while he was addressing Stanford Commencement in 2005. It was really a nice and inspirational statement. This statement was actually written by Stuvart Brand in late 70’s when personal computers was not even published in public.

If you see any of the CEO’s past or try to find out the way how they became the CEO of their organization then you will realized their foolishness and how much they hunger to achieve their dreams.

I have read one book called Stay Foolish, Stay Hungry written by Rashmi Bansal an IIM-A Graduate. In her book she has given 25 different story of IIM-A pass out graduates who are now CEO and running their organizations. She has briefly explained how they become CEO. Each individual has their own story. It is not the case that only millionaire’s son or person with good family back ground can become and CEO or enterprenioure, To become an CEO or to become and successful person in life you should have clear vision and innovative idea with patience to achieve and fulfill your dreams.

I will give you an example of my uncle who was running a small provision store in Ahmadabad, Gujarat. He was simple a commerce graduate from local collage in local medium. He was hardly 6 years older than me. As soon as he finished his graduation he joined his father’s provision store as his father was running 60. He had taken an in charge of small provision store and his father had taken up almost retirement. Days were passing and life was going as usual. In weekend we were sitting together in his shop and discussing life’s complexity and some other social stuff. We were like friends and playing cricket together in Sunday, going out for shopping usually, enjoying most of the festivals together.

After spending 2-3 years in provision store he realized, if life will go like this, how can we fulfill our dreams? He started thinking on the same and became hungry to become something in life. In his provision store business he saved some 50K money and he decided to invest it in proper place. And he realized the real estate market is booming. He could see real opportunities in that market and invested his small money there. He gained lots of money by investing in real estate. He again re invested those money he made lots of money. But still he did not forget to become an owner of his own firm. He was still eager, hungry and I would say foolish as he was taking risk too….! During that time he started his real estate company with one partner with money which he had earned from real estate. They are doing good and going ahead to achieve aims and fulfill their dreams. I will post you copmany’s name and website in my upcoming blog…!

His family was happy with his progress. He could have again re joined his provision store with earned money and could have passed his life with family. But he did not, as he had a clear vision in his mind. He started his own real estate company with money which he had earned. With his eagerness, foolishness and hungriness he has some good qualities like marketing, management too. They have invested huge money in his company with some construction projects. They did not have an idea about their success. Initially they faced lots of hurdles as recession was started after starting his projects but with his skills they have cleared all those hurdles and made those projects successful. He is such an inspirable and motivational person in my life who is very close to me.

Have somebody around who always inspire you…….!
