I am really good at setting goals and doing it. I ❤ it.

I have got a list of 24, for this year even if I do half of it, I am happy.

Anyways I have two goals done already, booked my ticket to India to visit amma for Christmas, wanted to get of out here every month, once month, for a weekend, Wes and I just did that last week.

I wanted to share how I do it.

Rule @1: Write all your goals list every single day.

Rule @ 2: Email your list to of your best friends beginning of the year and commit to it.

Rule @3: Have someone to talk to about your goals, a very positive, encouraging person. Wesley agrees to my goals 99% of the times. 1% he says Radha be careful don’t trust all these people 🙂

Rule @4: Be relentless look at your goals list 5-8 times a day.

Rule@ 5: Meditate upon your goals 3-4 times a day.

Rule @6: Be super picky who you hang out with. They have to support your goals or they are out of the game period.

Rule @7: refine your goals list every once in a while some become less important and so you remove them and some you add as you go along.

I will add items to the list as I think of.

Top 10 Things to Be Thankful For


Thank You Daily

It’s Thankful Thursday on the Facebook page.  This week, I decided to create a list.

top ten

1. Waking up in the morning – Each morning is a gift. When our eyes pop open (or slowly creak open, if you’re anything like me) in the morning, the first thought we should have is “thank you”.

2. Shelter – No matter how grandiose or sparse, protection from the elements is a blessing.

3. A hot shower – I can’t imagine how I would feel about myself if I wasn’t able to bathe everyday.

4. Food to eat – If you’re a child of the 80’s, you most certainly were affected by the images of starving children in Ethiopia in the “We Are the World” video. Some of us spend energy every day trying to decide what to eat for lunch while there are others who have no energy and wonder when their next…

30 days of Gratitude – Day: 5


Ten things I am grateful for today.

1) My day here, is just another peaceful day, while parts of Europe and Middle East is in turmoil.

2) Meditation, that brings peace to my heart.

3) Another beautiful day for a nice long walk.

4) Glad my son is did well in his Math test, at school.

5) Solitude.

6) Social media that connects me to the world when i want to.

7) My mother, who I keep thinking quite often,  i think i learnt “Contentment” from Mom.  I have never seen her complain much. She is the most optimistic person I ever met.

8) Gandhi: I have learnt a lot more on Gandhi in recent years. I am still amazed at Gandhi’s doctrine of nonviolent, peaceful resistance, that worked so beautifully in India. If it worked for India why can’t it work for rest of the worlds political problems? Why is there so much killing  and violence in this world?

9)  Good Karma. Enjoying all the goodness around me.

10) My self-confidence. Meditation gives self-confidence, self-assurance, knowing self, honoring self, making peace with self, where you are, what you are.  By the way meditation is Hindu/Buddhist spiritual practice. It should be learnt from a Guru, teacher. I am getting tired of this  mambo, jumbo that it is an exercise of the mind and such. I am sorry to tell you, but meditation is an eastern spiritual practice for   attaining enlightenment, period. If anyone tells and calls it anything else, they don’t know what they are doing.

Thank you, thank you, thank you God! Almighty!  Thank you so much for a wonderful day.
