And to make this process interesting, I (Coach Akanksha). am presenting you this article in the form of a poem. It is simple and pure. Read it, Think about it, and know where you stand. This is a guided introspection exercise. Only once we accept who we are can we create room for betterment.

by Coach Akanksha

I see my reflection
           In the pond,
And I wonder
            What all I have done wrong;

I see my reflection
            In the mirror
And I think
of my many errors;

I see my reflection
            In their smile,
I must have made
Someone happy for a while;

I see my reflection
            In his eyes
And I wonder
            If it is all worthwhile;

I see my reflection
            In her tears,
What all mistakes
Have I done over the years;

I see my reflection
            In the clouds,
And question myself
            Have I become a part of the crowd?

I see my reflection
            In the flowers,
And wonder
            Where my laugh has disappeared;

I see my reflection
            In the stars,
They have always
            Carried my dreams far;

I see my reflection
            I see me,
Is this really
            What I wanted to be??

I see my reflection
            In my tears,
And wonder
            If I can now set myself free!

I, now, see my reflection
              In my own eyes,
And know that
I deserve to be much more than 'Me'!

Now is the time to start that change that you really want for yourself! Take a tiny step each day and make yourself more like you really wanted to be!

'Effortless Doing' - Following your passion and Doing what you love

Wei Wu Wei - Effortless Doing. Don't we all want to get into that zone of effortless doing. When our work and actions become effortless. Often times, we find this concept most difficult to achieve in our professional lives.

We grow up watching the people in our life struggling to make ends meet, and we then believe that this is what we have got to do too. These people we observe, many-a-time were stuck in jobs that they did not like, and with people who did not value them. You saw that they were often unhappy or cribbing whenever someone picked up the topic of their job or career. And since you saw too many people do this, you made the inference of it being the 'OK' thing to do.

Eventually, you started observing behavior patterns of people around you, and you instantly drew a similarity. Al…
