माताएं सदा खिलखिलाती हैं, सदा सुंदर रहती हैं। जैसा कि किसी ने उद्धृत किया है, मेरी माँ दिल से सुंदर थी, किनारों पर कोमल थी, और स्टील की रीढ़ से युक्त थी। मैं वास्तव में उनकी तरह बनना चाहता हूं क्योंकि वह मेरी प्रेरणा हैं। मेरे पिता मेरे आदर्श थे लेकिन मेरी मां ने मुझे हमेशा खुद पर विश्वास करने के लिए प्रेरित किया। यह एपिसोड मेरी माँ को एक श्रद्धांजलि है जिन्होंने हमारे मूड को सहन किया, हमारे दिल टूटने और निराशाओं को शांत किया, हमारे उतार-चढ़ाव को सहन किया, और इससे भी अधिक बस हमें बिना शर्त समझा - क्योंकि वह हमसे प्यार करती थी। उसने हमारे जीवन को खुशियों और मीठी भावनाओं से भर दिया जो हम अपने दिलों में रखेंगे।

Episode 27: How to secure proof your jobs before Artificial Intelligence (AI) kills it?
Artificial Intelligence or AI is a technology that is demonstrated by machines unlike the natural intelligence displayed by humans and animals. In simple words, AI refers to the ability of a computer or a machine to mimic the capabilities of the human mind. AI is beneficial to human beings as it provides great relief from doing any repetitive tasks and is impacting virtually every industry and every human being. However, at the same time, AI also has some disadvantages and the biggest disadvantage is the loss of jobs. According to a recent paper by economists at MIT and Boston University, the robots could replace as many as 2 million more workers in manufacturing alone by 2025. So, are you concerned about automation or AI quickly replacing the jobs in your industry? According to a Brookings Institution report, While many believe that humans will work with robots instead of being replaced by them, in reality, the robots will kill approximately 36 million American jobs in the next decade,  In this episode today, I'll talk about how you secure your jobs before AI kills it. I'll tell you how you can prepare for the AI-driven future and protect your livelihood in this changing reality.

Episode 26: Why You Should Learn the art of Saying "No" to become Successful
"Its only by saying "NO" that you can concentrate on tasks that are really important" - Steve Jobs.  Steve Jobs was a master of saying No and he was few of those people to say NO to a lot of "GOOD" things so that he could focus on the "GREATEST" things.  The inability to say NO is one of the biggest villains or evil to become successful in life. At times, we say YES to a lot of things in order to please others and the result is that we are unable to meet our own goals. Thus, it is very important to say no if you want to be successful and lead a stressful life.  In this episode today, I'll discuss some of the reasons why it is important for you to learn to say "NO" to achieve success and greatness.

It's children's day today and I've got some fond memories from this day when I was a kid. I remember that we used to celebrate very well while I was in school.

Episode 10: Why "Less is More" is the key for the State of Happiness?
Less is More is a common philosophy that many don't truly understand. It is a phrase, which means having fewer items in life is good than having too many superfluous things.

Our dreams, our desires - all become BIGGER & slowly the pursuit of even more becomes an integral part of life.  But, if you really want to be happy and live a life full of happiness then you need to live a minimalist lifestyle that is centered around your ability to identify and appreciate meaningful and beautiful aspects of life.  In this episode, I'm going to share some of the reasons why less is more beneficial to you in life.

We're living in a very crucial phase of our life when we need to deal certain outside forces i.e. coronavirus but it's very important that we take care of our mental health. We never know what's happening in our mind. So, it's very important to talk about any thing that is worrying us with our loved ones.
