GrinbergThank you, Prakashan, for this inspirational and uplifting blogging buzz -- which I've shared in three hives: "beBee in English" and "Bee Inspired" and "Inspiration".

Comments20/09/2017 #11 Puneet Srivastava#3 Thank you @Proma 🐝 Nautiyal. Yes indeed that's a wonderful little book. My favourite as well. Plus so nice to read your observations. Perfectly interpreted. The only care to be taken is that these ideals don't get diluted. Because sometimes, either pressures of life or our own temptations may create some truly testing situations. For this reason in India, in Vedanta they always lay big emphasis on training and practice.. Good wishes.19/09/2017 #3 Proma 🐝 NautiyalGreat buzz @Puneet Srivastava. You explained the three aspects in such a beautiful and simple manner.
I remember reading Karma Yoga by Swami Vivekananda. A book that is very close to my heart. He spoke extensively about life, karma, and purpose and the one thing that I took away from the book among many others, was: not attaching expectations to the things we do. This helps work sincerely and sincerity is always rewarded, sooner or later. I believe the same applies to the purpose we pursue in our lives.
Thank you so much for thinking of me while tagging the post. Sharing it.

Comments19/09/2017 #2 Miriam BarnabyThank you Lance, this is how I see it.
You live with a fear
and it is not clear
what it is you fear.
But, you do.
When you look at you,
your face your body
is you see. But real
you, is hiding in
the sea, of many
thoughts. So you waste your
time, on things worth not
a dime, to be safe
of thoughts of you. But
deep inside you know
there is you who you
should know. So, put all
aside and look deep
inside to discover
who's hiding under
cover. And, embrace
the you, who you never
knew. And stop fearing
things that, really, mean
not a thing, to you.

Thank you for sharing your lovely and positive reflections on dancing here.18/09/2017 #11 Savvy Raj#6 @CityVP 🐝 Manjit First of all with regards to Dance I am actually very thankful you highlighted and equated the value of dancie and music intelligence in developing a harmony in the body mind and spirit Personally have seen instances of how the learners entire persona gradually shifts in time in sensing and sharing a positive frame of mind and body in practice of perspectives. Must add that the applications of dance where we look at dance beyond simply as an entertainment is gaining ground now in India only in the recent years .
Secondly thank you for appreciating this buzz which is simply a passionate flow of how I felt after reading those words. Somewhere the verses and prose got interspersed along the way and I thought it best to let it be . Yes dancing is a lot like living life!18/09/2017 #6 CityVP 🐝 ManjitDear @Savvy Raj I love how you go from poetry to prose with the mid-point being the tearing down the wall. That worked so well for me and it is the first time I have seen anyone write that way. Dance is an important intelligence in my own life, though it is one I could have practiced far more when I was younger, but by the time I centered my humanity, I had invested far too much in the concept of masculinity than to be the balance that dance is - masculine strength combined with feminine beauty - dance as harmonization - and that harmony in turn being the music that elevates dance.

Comments19/09/2017 #11 Devesh 🐝 Bhatt#9 thank you for the clarification. Whatever works is worth the effort.
Food for thought...
change can be immediate and very easy. The hard part comes in trying to prove it to others.
Beliefs are just thoughts. If proved to be self limiting and detrimental, one can change them. Such a change is not forced unless it is determined by external factors.
Why surrender to thoughts that we ourselves create?17/09/2017 #3 CityVP 🐝 Manjit#2 @David B. Grinberg
What we praise our success on and who we attribute for our success, that is a part of a belief system. It is not for me to say what the basis of individual inspiration is, but it is an affront for me to the term "21st Century Leadership" that draws inspiration from narcissists and hype mongers.
Fake news and political hype did not begin with Donald Trump, for it is what people find most appealing about the lies Napoleon Hill promoted. For sure it is inspiring reading but 21st Century leadership is far more than living off belief systems that sits on a foundation stone of mythology, a mythology written by an author that died penniless. Positive thinking is a religion but religion works and has produced much greater wealth for priests and gurus than it ever did for Napoleon Hill.
21st Century leadership requires us to listen to evidence and question mythology.17/09/2017 #2 David B. GrinbergThank you, Lillian, for this inspirational and instructive blogging buzz. I'm also a big fan of Napoleon Hill and read "Think and Grow Rich" in college. I highly recommend him as "required reading" for anyone who yearns to master life success principles. Keep buzzing!

- 14/09/2017What gets you out of bed in the morning - lights your fire -?
Necessity ? (JOB to pay the bills)
Purpose? (Feels like it's in your D.N.A to pursue a vocation)
Competition? (The need to conquer an Everest, Corporate ladder ascension, to WIN)
The alarm clock? (Just going through the motions)
For me I had a belated insight. I was pretty much useless, on any comparative ranking scale, at most things until I was 14. (Origins and Academic Failure)
Academically bottom 5%. Sport bottom 30%. Confidence bottom 10%. My insight is that I can only operate when inspired. If teachers weren't inspiring, sports coaches weren't inspiring, parents...then I needed to seek it out elsewhere.
What gets me out of bed? To Inspire and be Inspired. It's an energy I seek out daily, offline, online, in every interaction. It's my prozac, my caffeine, my shot, that flavours life.

- 12/09/2017What's your #1 life lesson?
I'm not talking 'life philosophy', more along the lines of waking up 10-20 years in your past knowing what you know today and whispering the lesson in your ear.
For me there's a clear winner. Just FAIL sooner, more often and care less.
To fail you need to START.
I'd start competing before I was ready.
I'd start SELLING before I knew what I was doing.
I'd go bust younger.
I'd make a fool of myself because of my naivety more often and not care.
I'd hero worship less. (Admire? Yes, but to hero worship is to relegate your own identity to the 'I'm not worthy' category.)
There are NO failures in life, there are RESULTS/outcomes of action and inaction.
Failure represents the gap between a first step and a desired destination. Without a first step there can be no journey.

Comments01/09/2017 #3 Phil FriedmanPersonally, I don't see a problem in judging others.

"you may not write often (a trait we share), but, when you do, you do so with a sense of purpose.
You may be swimming against the current, but, you certainly are not drowning. "
There is also a lot of insight.
You can choose what you want and when you swim against the current towards your goal.
You can choose the time when you can do this with a sense of purpose.
If you take your time, breathe, relax and swim diagonally, it may take longer than you expect
but you will not drown !05/09/2017 #35 Louise Smith@🐝 Fatima G. Williams The buzz I read before this one was by @Phil 🐝 Johnson, MBL and Brand Ambassador @beBee
I recommend you read it after this buzz. It's a great continuation along similar lines.05/09/2017 #34 Louise SmithAs a psychologist, I see many clients without purpose and clients in addiction to avoid having to deal with this concept as has already been mentioned. I ask each client to write down their short, mid and long term goals even if they can only identify 1 for each category. Early on in my career, I was stunned one day when a client said they couldn't do that as they had no goals. I let that pass and talked with the client and during the appointment from what the client told me,
I wrote out their set of goals. At the end, I gave them the list. It was the client's turn to be stunned. The client had goals but struggled with the abstract concept of what goals and purpose actually were.The client had imagined a complicated esoteric task when in fact it was quite the opposite.
Another interesting part of the process for the client was the novelty of being able to choose to themselves what they wanted rather than what others, work, family and life had previously dictated. SO a very important part of the process is the liberation of the client from perceived restrictions and learning to tolerate ambiguity, discomfort and freedom to be whatever they choose.01/09/2017 #30 Geoff Hudson-Searle@🐝 Fatima G. Williams great buzz, you purpose is possible nearer to you than you imagine, ‘find something more important than you are,’ philosopher Dan Dennett once said in discussing the secret of happiness, ‘and dedicate your life to it.’ There are certain factors and certain choices on your journey that make life easier and more worthwhile……01/09/2017 #26 Jerry FletcherFatima, You, like others here on beBee have the courage to wade in even when the waters are deep.

Yet, what I love about beBee, is I don't have to do it alone. I love teamwork and inspiration. When I was younger I felt it was cowardly to ask for help, so I tried to do everything in life alone. I was more scared to ask for help and join a team than I was to face my challenge alone and fail. I know that doesn't make sense, but that was my ego back than.
beBee is a great place of inspiration to keep going and great library of information.01/09/2017 #23 🐝 Fatima G. Williams#22 I am swimming right now Deb I was drowning when the questions dawned but not anymore. Infact as Chas said I am swimming against the current as I sense my purpose.
I normally go for a swim when the day's work drains my energy out. Swimming is a good energy revivor.
