Why Learning Is So Hard And What You Can Do About It?

I don’t know how many of you remember these 3 letters IIN which, were heard or seen everywhere
in India. There were many TV ads and also radio commercials that were on air.

For those who don’t remember, look at the picture below and you may just remember.

As time goes by and new commercials/ads start to appear on Television we tend to forget the old
ads. I am not promoting Idea Internet Network here but trying to make a point.

Let’s look at the video below and you may just get a clue of what I am trying to say.

I hope you got the message. For those who did not still understand, let me clarify. The ad above shows that the guy wants to start a business but is unaware of how to do it. His friend refers him to IIN and he keeps learning and starts his own business.
What I liked about the ads though is that they were promoting Learning. 

We start off at school as kids and hate studies, waiting to get out of school and into college. Then finally we finish studies and get onto our jobs. As …

Why You Need to Stop saying I Can't and Start saying I Can

A word we all would have used at least sometimes in our lives “CAN’T”. Using this word simply means I am unable to do this work/task. The question here is Why can’t?Are we born with this attitude?Do we develop this attitude?Can we do something to change this attitude early in life?
The simple answer is that we are not born with it. We develop this attitude over a period of time. So how does this happen? As kids, when someone asks us to do something, what’s our first reaction, “I will do it” or “I can do it”. Children respond with their hearts and not with their minds. As we grow, a new story starts to build. The attitude slowly changes from I CAN to I

Understanding Knowledge the way it is

We have read a lot about the term KNOWLEDGE in our schools, colleges, universities and even when we work or do business we hear this term.

Is it important to be Knowledgeful? I am sure many of you would say yes and some could even disagree if they did not know what’s the importance of this term?

Let’s look at a few questions first

1) Is information and knowledge the same?
2) Should I have knowledge related to my work only?
3) Why should I gain knowledge as people who have just done schooling are good 

These are questions that need clarification before we move ahead.

Information & Knowledge – The difference

Information and knowledge look like the same but they are definitely different. Information is everywhere & available in abundance. How much of that you put to work is what is called Knowledge.

Knowledge Related to Work

The 2 most important aspects of any relationship

LA. Any guess what LA could be?
I am sure when you say LA, the first thing that comes to mind is LOS

ANGELES. It is indeed a lovely place.
So what do we want in life?
Let’s look at the basics first: Food, Clothes, House, Car, Money, Good bank balance. I am sure many of us have all of this. But the question still remains, what is LA?
Have you heard the song “Har kisi ko nahin milta yahan pyar zindagi mein”. If not then please listen to it here. It’s an amazing song which has been remixed a couple of times.
Now, what has this song got to do with LA?
Let’s take L first and elaborate. By now you have guessed it right thatL stands for LOVE. I am sure you agree with me that everyone wants love. Even the animals, plants & environment. Have you ever thought that despite of so many things we want like Good food, house, clothes & all the other comforts then why was there no song like “Har kisi ko nahin milta yahan paisa (money) zindagi mein” or “Har kisi ko nahin milta yahan Kapde (clothes) zi…
