Perspective on life

Today I happened to listen to a motivational speaker. Listening to him, I felt like sharing his words here. Not exactly his words, but the message is same. I got different angle of looking at life today after I listened. It is eye opening. He asked the following questions one by one.

You are born because of?

Others.

Your name is given by?

Others.

Your resources such as meat, vegetables etc by?

Others

The love and affection you receive are from?

Others

The money you earn while working are given by?

Others

The respect you earn are given by?

Others

When you die the last rites are given by?

Others

The wealth you earn when you are alive is given or taken by?

Others

So, Why don’t we all close our eyes and think a minute is it that we are the ones who do every thing. No your existence itself is because of others. Once you start thinking that you don’t do any thing alone, the people around do for you, then you slowly will develop compassion for others. People who always says “I worked hard, I did this for you, I stepped up to achieve this” should realize that it is not I, it is we.

Knowledge is to share. I gained this knowledge yesterday and I felt I should share this to whoever is reading my blog. I believe in positive things. Last few years, I have changed and only positve I see. I donot have time for negativity in my life. Share this message, Repost this message if you like.

Mental health day

October 10- Mental health day. I wanted to write this on that day, however time constraints did not let me do that.

Radio show I usually listen to stated that 500,000 Canadians miss work due to mental health problems. That is a quite large number. The problem I see is that most of them don’t want to talk about it. I have taken first aid on mental health. The knowledge I got from that course I use daily at my life. I encourage every one to take this course in their life time atleast once.

I do have a mixture of employees work for me. Every one comes from different ethnic background. They all adapt to same working conditions differently. As a manager I realize that and i have over the years adapted to their understandings. I now can sense when they come to work with mixed feelings.

One important tool, I gain by doing the course is talk to these people. I can listen to them now, I do understand the difficulty. I understand it is not a disease. One excercise we did was to bring out two people from the class. Rest of them stayed where they were. Instructor asked the two people come back in to the class room and start yelling at the students ear. The students were asked to talk to each other about a family problem. At the same time the person yelling in to their ears saying “Don’t listen to them, They are bad, They are going to kill you”

We realized that is how people live daily. If you don’t live in their shoes, you will not understand. I want to help them. I leave my office open at all times. At any time my employee wants to talk about family issues or any other personal issues, they are welcome to come and take it out. It does help.

Prior to this course, I had hard time listening. I usually give solutions and try to get on with other things. Then I realize the solutions I give may not work for them. Or they already tried that. If I don’t listen fully, how can i give them suggestions?

I also took Leaders as coaches course, where you get exposed to become a coach. I have effectively listened and help three staff. I am sure they are thankful to me. I also understand as a manager, this kind of help will motivate them.

First aid course have given me insight to mental health. Also given me the tools to analyze a person when they show up for work.

Please do realize that we can help and we need to tame our mind to do that. Thanks for reading. Prayers to all those suffer and hope they all get help from some one who cares.

Birthdays.

I don’t like birthdays. Simple. I have many reasons.

  1. What is so special about coming to this world?
  2. You see a lot of issues just because you are here.
  3. You see pain and sufferings just because you are here.
  4. You wish you have control on certain problems, just because you happened to be here.
  5. Your work and issues related with that, just because you happened to be here.
  6. War and politics, you see just because you are here.
  7. You are helpless, just because you are here.
  8. Crime and death you see, just because you are here.
  9. You are bullied just because you are here
  10. You are always judged, just because you are here
  11. Your faith, believe, responsibilities all questioned, just because you are here.
  12. Your race, color, nationality all under review, just because you are here.

Above reasons I listed doesn’t mean I hate life. I love my life. I wonder why people celebrate birthdays not death. I think it should be other way around. Death should be celebrated. He or she finished her so called duty here on earth deserves to be celebrated. There are many beliefs out there states, we are send here for a reason. I do not see anything, why people are here creating lot of hatred?  Is that the reason why God send us here? Then I will say birthdays are the worst day in ones life. These days people fight each other in the name or religion, faith, country, color, race and even for possessions. No love. Screw birthdays my friends. I am scared for my children. This world is going in the direction where there will be no love left.

I always said, I will write to encourage positiveness. I hope writing this will make some people to think about love. We people should love each other. Then birthdays will find its meaning. Till then, I think deathday is the one we should celebrate.
