Environmental Protection

The environment is this whole surrounding around you where you and many other living beings breath and live. In other words, take the environment as a huge bubble of the atmosphere where different biological beings stay together for survival and interact with each other. This is one of the easiest and crystal clear definition to understand the true meaning of the environment. Obviously when it comes for survival then Environmental protection is really necessary to survive together.Global WarmingAs time is passing, humans have been making certain developments that were necessary for their comfort more like extravagance rather than necessity. So, if you would have understood the definition of environment then it clearly tells us that this whole place is meant for mutual survival, not merely the survival of one of the species. Now when humans have developed different objects which added luxury to their lives, they have disrupted the balance of the ecosystem hence not only endangering the…

4 life changing books

A person reading a novel kept on a quilt with a bunch of yellow fairy lights tangled around on it

1) Alchemist

If you truly want something the entire world conspires in helping you to achieve it”.

This is one of the greatest quotes, it is an amazing way to ensure people that to achieve something the extent to which they want it can actually lead them to get it. But what usually happens with us in life is that we get demoralized very easily, we tend to lose the hold of our own rope instead of tightening its grip. Always remember, Whatever hurdles one faces in their lives, to accomplish anything that they aspire for is a trial as to how badly they want that success. If you lose hope midway then you will never get to know whether you deserved that success or not. Now this book is not just about success but also about soul searching. It is a magnificent tale of discovering yourself and finding a purpose in life. It tells one to chase their dreams no matter how unrealistic they seem.

Complaining about things around us is easy as we often forget that whatever we see around us is from our own eyes hence a reflection of us too. furthermore, the author highlights the importance of being a good human to see good.

 “That’s what alchemists do. They show that, when we strive to become better than we are, everything around us becomes better, too.”

Lastly, in this world of envious eyes. People spend quite some of their time by thinking about the people around them for this Paulo Coelho says, “If someone isn’t what others want them to be, the others become angry. Everyone seems to have a clear idea of how other people should lead their lives, but none about his or her own.”

If you feel drained out and low this book is a must-read! Believe me, it will change the perspective you have about life hence life-changing.

 

2) The Kite Runner

One of the most beautiful sayings from this book is, We often do mistakes, and big ones - including betraying someone's trust. Good people feel the guilt of those mistakes. To overcompensate for the guilt, they do great work. True redemption is, therefore, when guilt leads to good. In the end, God will forgive everyone. We should believe that we will be forgiven if only we truly are guilty of our sins and sail in the right direction afterward. It is not that once you fall in a trench of sins you cannot get out. It will surely be hard but not impossible. As remember God is not someone like humans who find it harder to forgive and forget the wounds caused by people.

We have all cheated someone, betrayed someone's trust at some stage - sometimes knowingly, sometimes not. If you have realized that and felt the guilt, then you have the power to convert that guilt into great work. You can overcompensate by doing something fabulous for the impacted person. Guilt, therefore, can lead to greatness.

It also taught me that it is hardest to love people who only see black and white as they tend to decide themselves what is white and what is black. We feel that someone did really wrong or sinful acts and that they will be punished by God but if we really live their lives from the very beginning and experience their circumstances we might as well have done the same thing. Now not to say that whatever atrocious acts one has committed are justified but it is just that we as a third party are no one to judge until we are good enough ourselves. We surely can guide people and show them the right path but mocking them on their life decisions without knowing the background of their life and judging them on the bases of your own set whites(right things)and blacks(wrong things)is certainly not the right thing to do.


 3) The Greatest Salesman In The World

“I will laugh and my life will be lengthened for this is the great secret of long life and now it is mine.”

This book tells us about the importance of things like emotions of laughter and joy as something given to only humans as the living creatures and how much invaluable we think they are.

It also has such a beautiful excerpt that I will share here which can serve as an important reminder to all of us,

“If I become overconfident I will recall my failures.
If I overindulge I will think of past hungers.
If I feel complacency I will remember my competition.
If I enjoy moments of greatness I will remember moments of share. 

If I feel all-powerful I will try to stop the wind.
If I attain great wealth I will remember one unfed mouth.
If I become overly proud I will remember a moment of weakness.
If I feel my skill is unmatched I will look at the stars.
Today I will be a master of my emotions”


4) The Power of Now by Eckhart Tolle

This book is about living the moments in the present. Wherever you go, you should be sure that you are present not just physically but mentally too. If you don’t enjoy the present then you have 3 choices, change the present situation, accept it or move away from it. Sadly, We are so caught up in our daily tasks to notice the fleeting moments of life. As time passes memories are all we are left with instead of the present we failed to enjoy.

Do your best to avoid complaining. This is evidence that you are not accepting your situation in order to change it for the better. Complaining is negative in nature. It makes you turn into a victim and also makes you look like a negative person. If the current situation does not suit you, there are only two choices. You can either speak up and point out the problem for it to be fixed or leave the situation permanently. Everything else is pointless. The choice is yours.

Teens In a Dilemma Of What Is Right And What Is Wrong

A teenager, or teen, is a person who falls within the ages of 13 to 19 years old. The word "teenager" is often associated with adolescence. However the World Health Organization considers anyone between the ages of 10 and 21 to be an adolescent, and most neurologists consider the brain still developing into the early third decade (early 20s). After the 20th birthday, one is no longer a teenager. However, neural plasticity continues, as the brain and particularly the prefrontal cortex (PFC) develop further.
When typical teen behavior becomes troubled teen behavior
As teenagers begin to assert their independence and find their own identity, many experience behavior changes that can seem, bizarre and unpredictable to parents. Your sweet and obedient child who once couldn’t bear to be separated from you, now won’t be seen within 20 yards of you, and greets everything you say with the roll of the eyes or the slam of a door. As difficult as this can be for parents to endure, they ar…

How to know your worth?

Self-worth means that you value yourself, and you have a sense of self-value which means that you are worthy. Self-worth is defined by Merriam-Webster as:“A feeling that you are a good person who deserves to be treated with respect”.Here are five of the top factors that people use to measure and compare their own self-worth to the worth of others:1.Appearance—whether measured by the number on the scale, the size of clothing worn, or the kind of attention received by others;2.Net worth—this can mean income, material possessions, financial assets, or all of the above;3.Who you know/your social circle—some people judge their own value and the value of others by their status and what important and influential people they know;4.What you do/your career—we often judge others by what they do; for example, a stockbroker is often considered more successful and valuable than a janitor or a teacher;5.What you achieve—as noted earlier, we frequently use achievements to determine someone’s worth (…
