Importance of Art of Listening - Success Mantra 7

art of listening, art, listening,

I hope that you are enjoying this series of articles which highlights key factors helpful in getting success in life. In the Success Mantra 6 - Importance of Confidence, we talked about confidence and how confidence is useful for getting success in life. Today, we will talk about the art of listening and how we mostly ignore this rule which is very-2 essential to attain success in life.

The basic problem with most of us is that we want to speak and only speak. If we try to calculate the percentage of people who are good listeners then it will come out to be very less because we all have so much to say that we have no space left for listening. This is the story of every person in this world. However, a number of times, it has been proved in the world that art of listening can provide a great help to any person. I myself have gained many friends in the world without uttering a single word with the help of art of listening.

The other question which emerges is that how we can learn the art of listening or what it is all about? The answer is simple that art of listening is very simple to understand and use in life. For this, we first need to understand why we all love to speak more. We all are made of a number of emotions, perceptions, and self-beliefs and mostly, we believe that what we think and believe is right; and everybody else is wrong; therefore, mostly we find it very difficult to listen to others.

Due to this reason, we either stop listening (may be physically or mentally or both) to the other person or we interrupt him by giving our own point of views. We can easily see a race to speaking more in every group conversation. There is also a reason behind why people speak more because it is a perception in the minds of people that who speaks more is considered a knowledgeable person than the others. This concept may work truly for a group discussion; however, in real life art of living gives more rewarding results.

Therefore, with time, we all people have mastered ourselves in the art of speaking more and listening less. However, when it comes to emotions, relationships, trust, and friendship then people who are good listeners have a clear edge over the others. Good listeners have more successful emotional and professional relations as compared to the people who speak more. The reason is simple good listeners provide enough emotional support for the other person thus creating a strong bond between each other.

We all can easily become a master of the art by simply understanding that listening is also important. We also need to avoid providing our personal solutions and fixtures to the other's problems; only by listening to their problems silently we can easily help the other person by showing confidence in his abilities. We need to learn that it is better if people themselves find solutions for their problems.

When you will speak less and listen more, then you will reduce chances of hurting the ego of others; thus ending up with more friends than the enemies.  

Mostly, we remain away from success in life because we ignore the simple things like the art of listening. I hope that you will add the art of listening as the main tool to attain success in life.

Movie Review- Ratatouille

Mostly, we all believe that cartoon films are made for laughter and fantasy; and it is hard to represent emotions well with them. Today, animation industry has reached its maturity state and due to this fact; we are able to watch superbly realistic animation films like Ratatouille. The major attraction of this movie is to watch full display of emotions by the virtual cartoons characters.

Ratatouille is not only a story of the journey of a rat’s life but it is a very deep story which is presented very well in the form of an animation movie for us. Great story, great imagination, great animation, great production and great voice all give this movie a unique and distinctive look. This film start with main character of the film Remy a rat who has some amazing power of sniffing and tasting.

Remy always wanted to use his talent and become a chef like Auguste Gusteau, a famous chef of France. In his journey toward becoming a chef, he passes through number of challenges and finally completes his dream with the help of a young man called Alfredo Linguini. The major attraction of the movie is to watch Remy completing his dreams with dedication for his work. During this journey, Remy also face number of emotional dilemmas like choosing between his friend Linguini or his rat family and clan.

Alfredo Linguini also discovers a new life for himself with the help of Remy. This is a great movie which is first time made on the topic of humans and rats friendship, which is otherwise have very less scope in real world. This movie gives a simple message of believing on one’s talents in all the conditions. This is good movie for every person to watch and not only for children.

Score-5/5 (excellent)

Great poet of India Saint Kabir

Today’s generation can feel proud about the great works done by ancient saints which are still very much relevant even in the present world. Kabir is also one such saint who is believed to be born in Varanasi city of India in 1398 (as per the current opinion). He is also believed to be died in 1448 in the same city. Saint Kabir has presented a great wisdom in form of his small poems and verses about world, spirituality, god and happiness in front of us.

The main attraction of the Kabir’s work is that he presented infinite knowledge of the world so wisely in few words which is otherwise very difficult to achieve. All this only suggest towards the great intellectual abilities of Kabir. Kabir is called a mysterious person because there are number of things which are still not known about him. Kabir was a Muslim weaver; however, some stories about him suggest that he was born of a Hindu mother but brought up by Muslim weaver family.

However, there is no confirmation about this fact is available so far. Kabir is also believed to be illiterate and he used to give his discloses orally. Today most of the literature available about Kabir is collected by the follower of Kabir. Kabir and his verses also got place in Sikh religious book Shri Guru Granth Shahib. Kabir has made great influence on the Indian people and culture; and still there are large numbers of people across the world those are getting benefited from his work.

Kabir lived his life very simply and as per his own terms and conditions. He does not like to be followed or treated like a big saint or Guru. His advice to the people is to search god inside and not in the outside world. His complete work is really a great master piece which every person needs to read for at least one time.

Condition of Indian Farmers

Check the new article - Worst Condition of Indian Farmers 

Most of the people around the world only know about the rosy picture of India, where everything is growing and soon India is going to become a developed nation. However, still there are number of humanitarian issues present in India which need immediate solutions. One of such problem is suicide by thousands of poor farmers every year. As per the latest study conducted by a Chennai based institute and leading English daily “The Hindu” which states that about 1.5 lakh farmers across India committed suicide due to agriculture related problems in between the years 1997-2005.

Moreover, the study also indicated that this situation can become more problematic in the future if no hard measures are being taken by the Indian and state governments, because the percentage increase in suicides among farmer is much above the average general suicide rate. Today, India may have achieved a leading position in IT or other industries, but agriculture is one segment which has helped India when it needed this help most. Even today, the large majority of Indian population is engaged in farming, therefore, some immediate steps are required to avert the situation from becoming worse.

The major reason behind these suicides by farmers is believed to be crop failure and increasing debts. From the last many continuous years, the agriculture segment in India is not able to show any impressive growth and in future also chances of any growth are very less. However, vast farmer pollution in India totally depends on this sector and any negative move in this segment can ruin their all their dreams.

For solving this problem, our government needs to provide more financial and modernization help to the farmers so that they can also again start making profits from their agriculture business. However, on the other hand, most of the government looks blind on this tragedy and according to them situation is still under control.

Major threat for wildlife in India

Today, we Indians are proudly saying that we are soon going to become a developed nation where Indians will have all kind of the facilities and comforts. However, on the other hand we have completely forgotten about our wild life. There are many parts in India where development is taking place on the cost of wildlife. Today wildlife parks and forests are shrinking and further shrinking. Conditions have become so much alarming that many animals have no option but to enter the human inhibited areas.

Wildlife, Leopard, killing, IndiaSambar in Human area, India, PunjabRecently, a leopard was caught by the forest department of India in the Guwahati city of Assam. Similarly, in last 50 days around 5 Sambar (deer) were caught from the adjoining human inhibited areas of Jalandhar District in Punjab. All these things only indicate towards the shortage of forests and food for these animals. Moreover, these are not just isolated incidences, there are large numbers of similar episodes being reported from different parts of India. Indian population is growing at very fast speed and more numbers of people are   encroaching forest land and converting them into residential and agriculture lands.

The biggest problem in India is that both our government and people are not taking this matter seriously. If all this is allowed to happen in the same way and in the same speed then time is not far away when animals will almost become extinct from our forests. All these incidences are wake up signs before situation goes out of the control and these animals become the victim of Indian growth story.

Need for planning and precaution in Financial matters

Many people know this fact in present world that it is not easy to manage financial matters because people are required to take numbers of precautions and planning for managing their funds with care. Mostly, people who fail in this managed become victim of financial mismanagement. For example, there are large numbers of people around us who become the victim of over and unplanned use of credit cards and loans. Many people take loans and spend money through credit cards but they have very less plans about returning this money.

Due to bad credit history, these people land in the list of people with bad credits. Bad credit has lot of disadvantages like problem in getting new loans, credit cards or getting good financial deals. In developed nations like US this is common story and we can easily find millions of people bad credit history. Slowly, this trend is also becoming very common in developing nations like India and China. Numbers of people who take loans and overspend of credit cards is also increasing in these nations.

Though, initially it look very easy to get loans or overspend on credit cards but sometimes, these financial problems can create big problems from people. Therefore, it is very important for people to solve their financial problems in time before they become big and uncontrollable. With proper financial planning people can easily avoid most of financial worries and tension free life.

Need for safety while using Email

Dear all e-mail users, I want to request you to remain alert while using your email accounts and avoid responding or accepting rewards or money sharing schemes offered in your mailbox. In the recent times, numbers of Indians have become victim of these frauds due to their ignorance and somewhat greed. Numbers of criminal organisations mainly settled in poor African countries are behind these frauds. Recently, RBI has also issued security alert in this matter. However, still large numbers of people are not aware about these kinds of frauds and become the victim of them. Most of victims receive mails 1) telling them that they have won a lottery with automatic email draw 2) a person want to share some fortune with you 3) a widow needs your help for getting money 4) a bank employee of foreign bank needs your assistance in money transfer and number of other new and realistic methods created on the daily basic. Target of these mails are mostly new online users who have no knowledge about these kinds of the frauds. It is advisable for the people to not share their personal information like name, address, passport details, account number/password or send any kind of money.

For avoiding such frauds-

1) Do not provide your personal email address to unknown person or submit it to unreliable websites
2) Check email for address for extensions like @reply.ebay.com, @123.ebay.com etc in mail because actual mail will always have @ebay.com and no variation.
3) Always remember that there is nothing free in this world and especially in online world.
4) Always use an email service provider with good spam and fraud control.
5) Always keep updated yourself about the new threats and never respond to mails from unknown origin.

Below are few examples of these mails which are mostly in circulation.

Example 1-
From: Lady Fatima Ali H Kasali,
33-35 Greenwich Church Street ,
London SE10 9BJ ,
England.


Here writes Lady Fatima Ali H Kasali , suffering from cancerous ailment. I am a widow , My late husband is Engineer Ali H Kasali a Malaysian. He was into private practice all his life before his death. Our life together as man and wife lasted for two decades without child. My husband died after a protracted illness.My husband and I made a vow to uplift the down-trodden and the less-privileged individuals, as he had passion for people who can not help
themselves due to physical disability or financial predicament. I can
adduce this to the fact that he needed a Child from this relationship,
which never came.When my late husband was alive he deposited the sum of 5,600,000 (Five Million, Six Hundred Thousand Great Britain Pounds Sterling), which were derived from his vast estates and investment in capital market. Presently, this money is still with the
Bank.

Recently, my Doctor told me that I have limited days to live, due to
the cancerous problems I am suffering from. Though what burders me most is the stroke that I have in addition to this cancer. With this
hard reality that has befallen my family, I have decided to donate this fund to you, and want you to use this gift which comes from
my husbands effort to fund the upkeep of widows, widowers, orphans,
destitutes, physically challenged children, barren-women and persons who prove to be genuinely handicapped financially.It is often said that, givers, never lack. I took this decision because I do not have any child that will inherit this money and my husband's relatives are bourgeois and are very wealthy, and I do not want my husbands hard earned money to be missused or invested into ill perceived ventures.

I do not want a situation where this money will be used contrary to the stipulated agreement. I am not afraid of death hence I know where I am going. With Allah, all things are possible. As soon as I receive your reply, I shall give you the contact of the bank in Malaysia. I will also issue you a Letter of Authority that will empower you as the original beneficiary of this fund via my
Lawyer. My happiness is that I lived a life worthy of emulation.
Please always be focused all through your life. Please assure me
that you will act just as I have stated herein. Hope to hear from you
soon, and Allah be with you and members of your family. You can contact methrough my private email address: ladyfatimahkasali@myway.com

Warm Regard,
Lady Fatima Ali H Kasali,
