Some notes from the book “Who will cry when you die?”
Recently I read a book “Who will cry when you die?” by Robin Sharma. The book was a compilation of 101 tips which can make your life better. Personally some of these tips made me think a lot and I thought they are worth sharing. Here it goes:
- Every day, be kind to a stranger – I felt this the best one.
- Learn to be silent – Have you ever tried practicing silence. Its very difficult(atleast for me). When you are silent a higher energy awakens in you and you will realize things which you have never dreamed of.
- See your troubles as blessings – Something easy to say, but difficult to bring to practice. But the best remedy for most of your mind created problems.
- Take more risks – A smooth journey is easier, but less exciting. The moment you take risk, the moment you start to grow. Shake your life a little bit and let it settle down.
- Look for the higher meaning of your work – Everyone do a job for living. But how many of us enjoy it. We curse our job and do it without any excitement. To make our life easier, find a higher purpose of your job. If you are teacher imagine that you are building the future of all the kids you teach. You will feel much more alive at work this way.
- Get good at asking – Don’t feel shy to ask what you need. When you ask something at least you have a chance of getting it.
- Bless your money – When you pay for some service, bless that money and think that the money will come to you thousand fold. If you are paying for your dinner thank the cook who cooked the food, the farmers who cultivate the crops, and the chicken which got barbecued for you..:) Try this for few days and see the magic.
I hope the above points change your life in a positive way. If you want to read more, you can buy his book from Amazon (not a referral link).
