Looks And Brains

Today I read a very interesting quote which said,

“Lots of people complain enough about their looks, but not many complain about their brains”

A smile came to my face as few days back I was thinking on the very same note. I thought that it is not only me but there are many other people out there who also wonder over the extra concentration of our present day world on the outward appearances. These days I see many people who are always thinking of ways to groom themselves, improve their looks, and do not pay much attention to what goes on in their heads.

Now many people will say that yes the outward appearances’ are the ones which matter and they do play an important role in forming up an impression about the person or personality who comes in front of you. I will agree with them to certain extent but not wholly. I am a strong believer that the inner beauty of the mind and heart is something that is also much rather more significant. And unfortunately when I look around, I don’t find much people who struggle or even make an effort to improve their thinking processes. In fact , they really do not even try to pay much heed to what lies inside their minds and how they act or behave in certain situations or cases. 

Physical appearances do matter and I don’t deny the fact either. It is much easier to get attracted or like the ones who are blessed with good looks. At the same time it is what we think that matters equally. You might have observed that it is really very hard to carry a conversation with someone who has the looks but the moment they speak, you get a little displeased with what they say or how they behave. The thoughts are something that matter, what you think and what opinion you hold with regarding everything around is significant and not what appearances  you put up for the world to see. I really feel that it is more important what we think inside. And for me it is very disturbing to see that day by day people around are really going for appearances and not what lies truly inside the mind of a person.

It is the mind that needs to get the same importance as we give to the improvement of our physical self. We need to polish our minds which I am seeing are getting corroded. We really need to concentrate on the learning part about various things and keep on adding knowledge to the those corners of the brain which are still unattended. It is equally important to work on the improvement of our moral and ethical values .And above all we need to learn, care and, think rationally for the humanity in general. The world around us is turning bleak because of the lack of genuine improvement in our thinking’s. I believe that the tiny bit of what lies in our minds needs much improvement if we really want to make this world a beautiful place with a life that revolves around balanced and rational thinking.

Early Morning Rising Is So Difficult-I Wonder WHY?

I wonder why even sleeping all night so well, you still hate to get up early in the morning. I know this is not only my problem, but there are many people all around the world who will agree with me on this. People who also find getting up in the morning as one of the hardest tasks in their way of starting a new day.

Early morning rising is not fascinating and even gets more less charming when you hear the alarm clock ringing right in your ears and you keep on hitting that “snooze” button again and again. I myself literally abuse the privilege of having the snooze option and believe me or not, I almost take an hour to finally turn the alarm clock off. So now you get a clear idea I am also one of those many others who really don’t appreciate this wake up early thing.

The question that always comes to my mind is that what can be done with these early morning blues. What I have figured out is that the best and a very important thing to do is to sleep early. Getting enough sleep is very significant in this all early morning wake up game. Somehow for me this is a very difficult task to follow but trust me whenever I have slept early; waking up next day has not been a problem at all. This I believe is the foremost thing to do if you want to get up early feeling totally fresh, energized and ready for a new good day ahead.

The other thing which we can follow is to have a good reason to get up. People who study or have regular jobs always have to wake up at a particular time .That means they have a reason at hand and they have to get up for it no matter what. Similarly for those who do not have some regular jobs and still wish to get up early, they need to make things to do list, so that they can look ahead to something worthwhile in the day. This also reminds me of little kids, who get up early on weekend mornings to watch their favorite cartoons. This shows they have something special in their minds to do and their eagerness is something that helps them in waking up early when they could have slept more very easily.

Another tip which I have seen effective for many people is to place alarm clocks at a distance where it is out of your immediate reach. This way you can get out of bed to turn it off. You can also set your alarm clock ahead of time so that by the time you finally open your eyes you get up easily.

The last one thing, which I think is the best trick is of applying self discipline. You have to practice that and get up no matter what happens or how bad you feel while getting out of your bed at the required time. 

So getting up early cannot remain a hard task if you follow very few and easy steps mentioned above. Motivation and self discipline are the key ideas behind the early rising habit. I am sure by following these you will stop wondering like me about how hard and difficult it is to wake up early. 

Hope from now on you all will start your day well without any problems and sudden surprises of over sleeping.


 Am I the only person in the world who doesn't like pretentious people? I mean everywhere I look around I always see a bunch of people who are so much lost with their own selves. They, without even noticing themselves carry a few rather many signs of arrogance in them and above all can’t stop just bragging about the good things they have done,have met some high business tycoons or have recently got an iPad or whatever else they have something to boast of.

I mean seriously, just tell me what the fuss is all about. I hate to hear things which mention the brand instead of what the real thing is. The high and the mighty attitude is something I seriously have been a failure to appreciate much.

It is really not an easy task to stand such people who just can’t stop mentioning about all the big things they own or all the success they have achieved. It is good, definitely good to mention about the very nice things you owe or have done but only to a limit. Humbleness is also something and that is one of the top most things I often look for in a person whom I come across.

Unfortunately this “being humble” factor is really vanishing fast and I am seeing a very materialistic world with rising number of superficial, brand conscious people. Who knows maybe one day I will also be talking about brands but may God help me with that :)

But does anyone know how to deal with people like them? Well, my idea about the best way to deal with such people is to simply ignore whatever they say or however they act. I know it is not an easy task for people like me who just can’t stand such a “sing your own praise” kind of attitude but then again that is the only remedy I apply and think it as the most useful way to deal with the pretentious types.

In addition to that, one thing I am sure about is that each and every person in this world has his or her own style and attitude. Everyone behaves in their own manner and does what they think is best. Similarly the pretentious people also have their own style and they can do or say things that might appear weird to you and me. So the whole philosophy that exists behind the pretentious theory is “I am me and you are you”. What I like does not mean you will also appreciate. Everyone has the right to live in this world and express the way whatever they like. It is not necessary that we can equally admire each and every habit of the people living around us. It is all about our patience and the way we deal with the ones we don’t appreciate much. So if anyone is pretentious, just let them be and change the way you behave or act. Probably this is the best policy you have to adopt towards people who you don’t admire. Just live and let live!!!!
