Motivation, a drop from the sea that everybody needs. We need this tonic to recharge our battery (not literally), to keep moving forward in life and succeed. Time and tide waits for none, we have heard it a lot before but if we do believe in these quotations it does wonders. But if we don’t these are just empty words. So if the times are hard and you feel low, you see no way out. Then, dust yourself up and try to do following stuffs:

  1. Smile

Yup, you saw that right, just smile first. Smile at people passing by – on the road, -in the park, – to the person standing opposite to you in a public vehicle, – to the beggar in the footpath.  The trick is to pump in the positive energy inside you. The world is good and bad both; it depends on your perspective of course.

 

  1.  Pat yourself on the back

You have to learn to appreciate yourself, time and again. A small deed, work or thought that you feel good about is worth appreciating. Don’t wait up for everybody else to suggest or comment. Definitely you can and should share your feats and success with near-dear ones. Don’t ever forget to remember that YOU MATTER.

 

  1. Watch inspirational movies.

Okay, this is an old school but it works every time. Trust me, okay don’t trust but you got to try it first. Who said learning isn’t always fun, watch a movie – get entertained and learn at the same time. Surf up the internet, rent a good inspiring movie and feel the kick out of it. Get thrilled, goose bumps, that adrenaline rush you need to make sure you keep being encouraged. Choose your genre and choice.

Some of my picks:

 

  1. Listen to feel good songs.

Ever heard of “HIT THE IRON WHEN IT IS HOT”. It’s a phrase, not a song, but yeah – Sure you did, so emotions are like that too. We do not have control over it, so make sure you keep a playlist beforehand the apocalypse of feelings.

Some of my picks:

 

  1. Books

Fictional, Non-fictional, thriller, romantic, – choose your shade. Books are your best friends , when the whole world is against you. Its like making peace with yourself. If you google/bing for “inspirational books”, I am sure you will get million of results. Top 10, top 20, and other author related books.

Some of my picks:

  • YOU CAN WIN by shiv khera.
  • THE ALCHEMIST by Paulo Cohelo.

 

Motivation will almost always beat mere talent.

-       Norman Ralph Augustine

 

Finding motivation may not be like finding X in mathematics and it does seem impossible and unrealistic at times when you feel unmotivated. The remedy is different from people to people. We often tend to forget simple and common things around us that make us happy. The key to the lock might be different, so hey IF THERE IS A WILL THERE IS A WAY.

Memories of you

I don’t say it often
Nor can I express
But it seems like I’ve been holding onto
Memories of you.

Drunken me is the sober me
I still remember when YOU and I used to be WE
I close my eyes only to see
You were much more than everything.

 Just when I got hold of life
It slipped quietly under me
All I can feel is fear
As I ran towards you to be near.

 A moment of sigh
A moment of tear
A moment of impact
A treasured memory now and forever.

memories of you

But now Facebook is testing some new ideas, and now there is a way.

Rubiks cube 40th anniversary

Rubik’s Cube 40th anniversary

Some take it as challenge, some get frustrated in the first attempt, but Hungarian inventor and architect Erno Rubik dared to care. In my childhood days, I always wondered how this thing works, it had colors and people used to rotate up-down-left-right. This cube was a proud possession for adults of the time, my brother used to show-off like he had the coolest gadget of all.

In the honor of Erno Rubik, the 40th anniversary of Rubik’s cube was celebrated at Liberty Science Centre in Jersey City, US which was a special toy exhibition too. It displayed the world’s most expensive Rubik’s Cube ever made, a 18 karat gold cube set with 1,360 jewels, including white diamonds, green emeralds, red rubies, blue and yellow sapphires and purple amethysts, estimated to be worth £1.5 million. Titled Beyond Rubik’s Cube the exhibition explored the modest beginnings of the cube, showing its first prototypes made out of wood and rubber bands. Rubik’s cube also gives the sense of idea that Math and Science embedded with art.

“You can call it a toy. It’s a puzzle [but] at the same time it has inspired people in so many areas,”

-          Paul Hoffman, CEO, Liberty Science Centre

google doodle rubik's cube

Yesterday, when I using the search engine Google, I saw the Rubik’s cube doodle and mouse hover said 40th anniversary of Rubik’s cube. And then I wanted to know more about the exhibition and past-present-future of this exciting cube. Google’s doodle is always remarkable because it lets you connect and involve with the events it presents as doodle. Google too celebrated the anniversary of Rubik’s cube with doodle.

The Hungarian inventor and architect Rubik says he is pleased to see young generations enjoying the cube and sees the cube as the eldest child. Rubik’s cube world record holders  are speed cubing and breaking records time and again.

“If you’re able to do something [that] at first sight seems unsolvable or very difficult for you especially, and if you succeed, that is very emotional,”

- Mr. Rubik.
