The phase

Standard

Life of purpose is the purpose of life, isnt it. I like the way Kavitha Sonawala verbalizes it

I am a key proponent of Socrates’ school of “know thyself”. Unless you truly understand your passion and what role you can play in this world for the greater good, you will never find your true calling. If you find yourself looking in the rear view mirror, basking in the glow of past accomplishments, having limiting self-beliefs and complacency, then know that it’s time to give life a little fillip and challenge yourself all over again.

Ego is the greatest enemy of the learned man or woman, and you will have to practice the fine art of shedding that veneer of ego to let your true potential emerge. Once you’ve recognised a need and once your decision has been made in terms of what course to follow, visualise, believe, and keep moving forward.

Make mistakes along the way, and self-correct through a process of discipline and continually hone your skills. You will realise that once you start operating from a position of your strengths and start focusing on the greater good, avenues to reinvent yourself into something bigger, better, and more beautiful will mystically materialise.

Stay alert to opportunity, stay focused on the task at hand, and be open to change and challenge.

About G...

Evolving and revolving! Douglas Adams & Woody Allen are my soul mates from another era. My quirkiness is an eclectic mix of Jess (New Girl), Dharma and Carrie Bradshaw. Sharing my birthday with Paulo Coelho & Stephen Fry, i'm always reading a book and enjoy having engaging conversations about life and love. I take children, wit and play seriously, very seriously. I'm a renaissance soul who enjoys yoga, vodka with cranberry and doodling. Working in the field of Education and Story-telling, there are only two things i look forward to: Knowing myself and Everything that matters!
