The first reason that people do not

succeed in life is that they do not know

what they want!

MEMO FROM NARA





Human brains always think. They think about the past, the present or the future. Also many thoughts come and go in our mind every now and then. Some of these thoughts are vague and unclear whereas some other ones are very clear and specific. Such thoughts are mostly valuable to pursue further. In fact, thoughts give rise to ideas either to improve our life or invent new things to benefit the mankind. Thoughts are our dreams which need to be implemented. Some people are good at it. They use their knowledge and go step by step to achieve what they want in their dream.

The clarity of thought is an essential aspect for those who give lectures. They can impress their audience. Similarly students should have the ability to express themselves with clarity of thought. If they attain such ability, then they can easily pass their examinations and succeed in life. Clarity of thought is very important in an interview or viva voce examination. Questions are asked by the interviewer or interviewers. The answers they expect should be specific without ambiguity.

The clarity of thought comes when we overcome fear and worry. Self-confidence and fearlessness certainly give us the ability to think better and clear. Most of our thoughts are related to our life, our family’s life or our profession. So practicing clarity of thought is as essential as studying a new skill. We all know that practice makes perfection. Therefore by practicing, our thoughts can be improved to a level of clarity. In order to achieve such practice we need to read a lot and gather knowledge and other’s points of view. Listening and understanding other people’s suggestions for various problems of life will help us to get out thoughts more precise and clear.


In the scientific field also clarity of thought is much essential. In selecting a project, layout of experiments, taking observations, collecting appropriate data, interpreting the results with the available evidences and drawing conclusions – the clarity of thought plays a principal role. Not only that, presenting the results in the form of a research article to publish in a peer-reviewed journal, clarity of thought is essential. Colleagues, co-authors and the peers of these publications may sharpen your thinking on certain important aspects of the study.

Some of the Spiritual leaders or God-men express their thoughts with clarity. So they attract a large number of followers who make them as heroes or role-models. Clarity in verbal communication certainly attracts the attention of men and women. Hence human beings use this trade secret to attract the followers who become their fans. If the vision is clear, we can go for a long distance and if we have the clarity of thought we achieve a lot. Therefore, it is uppermost for everyone to have clarity of thought in every walk of life in order to elevate oneself to the level of an achiever or successful man or woman.

HOW TO BE A GOOD FRIEND?



1. Think about what you can give to a friend – and not about what you can get from them.
2. Encourage your friend to be all that they can be, and to reach the goals they have set for themselves.
3. Don’t hold grudges. Forgive and move on.
4. Tactfully point out any serious concerns – but only raise them once, and then leave it up to them.
5. Be reliable. This shows that you’re a faithful and trustworthy friend.
6. Don’t be controlling. Real friends allow each other to think for themselves, and make their own decisions and to do their own thing. Also, they’re flexible and willing to negotiate.
7. Be there when things are good and be there when things are bad – and always try to understand what friends are going through.
8. Accept that we’re all different- and your friends are not your clones. They won’t always thinks and want the same things as you.
9. Don’t gossip - and don’t share what a friend has shared with you. A secret is a secret – don’t compromise their trust.
10. Don’t let an argument destroy a friendship you have. Sometimes it’s better to back off and back down.


RIGHT OR WRONG



What is correct? and what is not correct?
 What is right? and what is wrong?

are some of the questions bother us most of the time. A logical decision should be the solution. Something like 2 + 2 = 4 is correct for all of us; whereas believing without basis may be correct for some but not for all. Stealing is the right thing for a thief. Killing is the right thing for a terrorist; while for peace-loving people these are wrong and not correct. In fact, the thief, terrorist and peace – loving people are all human beings. Such differences occur among them! Strange! There must be some reason for it. What are those reasons?

Therefore it becomes necessary for every one to use the most powerful and sophisticated machine that has yet appeared on earth: the human brain. We do not often think about its ability. Once you start using it all the time to find out what is correct and what is not correct, then we will be able to lead a life free of fear, stress, anger and all unwanted thoughts.

The great potential of human brain is to discover the “unknown” little by little through knowledge, strength, health and happiness. Therefore I feel there is a hope to lead a life which we want the way we like.

Optimism is one of the important aspects of life. It takes us to a proper life style and achievement. An optimist is always happy and courageous. He or she has the capacity to carry on the right things in the right way. They have great hope and bright future. Why not we turn optimists? Think of it and act.



JUST TO LAUGH




An airplane was about to crash. There were 4 passengers on board, but only 3 parachutes.
The 1st passenger said “I am Stephen Curry, the best NBA basketball player. The Warriors and my millions of fans need me, and I can’t afford to die.” So he took the 1st pack and left the plane.
The 2nd passenger, Donald Trump, said, “I am the newly-elected US President, and I am the smartest President in American history, so my people don’t want me to die.” He took the 2nd pack and jumped out of the plane. The 3rd passenger, the Pope, said to the 4th passenger, a 10-year-old schoolboy, “My son, I am old and don’t have many years left, you have more years ahead so I will
sacrifice my life and let you have the last parachute.”
The little boy said, “That’s okay, Your Holiness, there’s a parachute left for you.
America’s smartest President took my schoolbag.”
