Choose your words with care!
Words are really powerful! They reflect or mirror our thoughts and feelings. So, we have to think about our words, understand our words, watch and weigh our words. Words are containers for power, and so we have to decide what sort of power we want our words to carry. Our words can augment or diminish our level of contentment. They can shape the answers to our prayers and have a positive or negative upshot of our future. One might say that our words are like a movie screen that uncovers what we have been thinking and our attitudes. The saying, “Watch your words or your words might drown you” is very true.
THE ART OF TRUE GIVING
Derived from the Latin word carus and the old French word chariteÌ, ‘charity’ originally meant love and compassion. So naturally, it became an important tenet in every religious text to encourage benevolent action and generous donations to the needy.

Believe In yourself!
Your beliefs, to a great extent, make you or break you! We are driven by our beliefs and values, every day. Mentally strong people don’t give negative people power over them. They refuse to blame others for holding them back or dragging them down.

Earlier, girls thought that women could not box, but now there are role models for them. Some of boxing’s biggest female stars have stepped into the ring and answered the bell even during pandemic times.
Rishabh Pant From A Brat To Brilliant
A tour Down Under may prove to be the Waterloo for many a cricketer not only because the Australians play very competitive cricket but also because the pitches there are fast and bouncy. While it may be a paradise for the faster bowlers it may be a deluge for batsmen whose batting technique lacks the capability to handle the short-pitched deliveries — used mercilessly and frequently by the Australian bowlers.

GRAB Every Opportunity
I have heard many people complaining that there is no opportunity for them as someone is already doing what they always wanted to do. But they don’t realize that they must grab the opportunity. When I started my training programme, there were many established trainers in the field already. But I knew that my story is different from theirs. Even if the stories were similar, I can say it differently.
