I am working in a top position in an U.S based corporate company from many years. I forgot about the real meaning of happiness and how to live 'effectively'. I slowly forgot my childhood memories, the way I have enjoyed the little and meaningless games in the streets. I started feeling that gadgets gives comfort and happiness. It went well for couple of years but only later could I understand that there is something I am missing in my life. I am spending most of my time in front of my computer fighting to meet the deadlines. Client calls, software issues and status meetings eat most the time. Lunch with colleagues also involves project and political related talks. Everything I need to for the day gets decided before I stepped into the office. I happened to read the book The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari at such point of time and it has changed my whole perspective of life.

The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari - What I Learnt From It : 
Below are some of the lines that made me think about Life.

- An average 4 year old kid laughs for 300 times per day. But an average adult laughs for just 15 times a day with satisfaction. How many times you are laughing every day?

- Life is all about choices and decisions. Every one of us takes many decisions every day including what time we should brush our teeth and how much time we should take bath. But we hardly take 3-5 major decisions in entire life including what career we should choose, whom to marry etc. What are the key points in taking a decision for you? 

- When the student is ready, the teacher appears automatically. We might want to start a new career or a new business. But we lay back because of different reasons primarily because of mental blocks. Be open to learn. Don't think you don't have any choices. Be open to learn, a mentor will appear for you to guide you the best way.

- It is willpower that holds you when somebody disagrees with you. You will get lot of negatives on your way. Lot of people including your friends won't agree with your decisions. Only your willpower can save you from all those negatives at that point.
