It was the 12th standard exam hall. Shanti was busy, copying from Ruby. Only after the exam got over, did she realize that there were in fact two sets of question papers with the same questions in different order and while Ruby was answering set A, Shanti was answering set B, which means she was writing right answers to the wrong questions.
Even we all do the same! We write the answers to the questions faced by various celebrities - Rajnikanth, Shahrukh Khan, Tom Cruise, Will Smith!!! And apply the same solution to our own lives for the problems faced by others!
Where’s your focus? On other people’s answer sheet or your own question paper???

Ramu’s mother always used to scold Ramu for keeping his room messy. His toys were all over the floor. Ramu’s mother tried everything she can - restricted the screen time, no favorite snacks, no pocket money to avail, and so on. She used to complain to Shamu’s mother all the time that her son has been tough for her to handle.
To exactly understand the scenario, one day Shamu’s mother visited Ramu’s house. She entered the kitchen to drink water and saw a clumsy and messy kitchen, with utensils scattered all over the place. She nonchalantly cleared all the clutter, while Ramu was observing from behind. The calm and composure shown by Shamu's mother made him ashamed of his own behaviour. The next day Ramu silently cleared all his toys and kept them in the cupboard, in an organized manner. This quick turn around by Ramu made his mother realize that the solution was within her control, instead of humiliating her son.
Many people excuse their own faults but judge other people harshly. We should reverse this attitude by excusing others shortcomings and by harshly examining our own

The Self Audit
How many of you are satisfied with where you are in life? Be it your career, relationships, health, finance? And how many of you are taking conscious footsteps to move ahead in each of these aspects?
How many of you open your social media at your office thinking it will just take 5 minutes? Before you know it, 2 hours would have gone by and your boss calls you to check on the progress of the tasks.
One day, I was watching a web series. As a house wife, I knew I had other important house hold work to do, but thought of looking at just one episode. On that day, my husband came home very tired and hungry. He saw me engrossed in watching the web series. He went to the kitchen, saw that there was no dinner, came back to me and gave me a real piece of his mind! He didn’t utter a single word for the entire week. All my plans for shopping went down the drain.
The next week, again he came home tired and hungry. I was still watching the web series, but this time, a delicious aroma rose from the kitchen. He went straight to the kitchen, saw the food and when I started to get up, he said, “Let me also join you in watching the web series!” and took me shopping the very next day!
Procrastination is the mother of all problems in any relationships, be it between a couple, parent & a child, or within a family. Let’s focus and do what needs to be done according to the situation, irrespective of our likes and dislikes.
Keep a check on how much of you and your activity is conscious or unconscious. Self-audit is self-transformation

Let us focus on our own faults and rectify them before blaming others.
Let us remember that when we point one finger at others, the rest of the fingers are pointing towards ourselves!
It is better to light a candle than to shout in the dark!
Let us not blame the circumstances, rather do something every day, to go from where we are, to where we want to be! It is up to us to either complain or use that energy to do something useful.
Let us focus on taking a few baby steps on something every day to get what we want!
Personally, I understood that we must use our time to do the most important and most urgent things first. After putting in the efforts for completing the necessary tasks, we may use the remaining time to do things that we like!
If we become selfish to some extent on focusing inward, we become selfless to the society! By doing this so, we can not only improve ourselves but also lead others by example.
Human well-being will not happen unless one turns inward, because human experience is created from within!
And thus I reiterate,
IN is the only way OUT!!!
