Most of us in our younger times used to wonder what is black money,is it really black?As we grew older and older the black money also grew with us larger and larger.we pay a medicine for Rs 100 but don”t take the bill and allow the shopkeeper to generate some black money by withholding a portion of the sale proceeds from the tax authorities. We sell a part of our assets but donot fully account the sale proceeds and pay the applicable tax only on the accounted portion.Here we generate black money…the chain grows and to the extent that this process impinges on the revenue to be honestly going to the Goverment.Also we create an inequality among ourselves into haves and havenots all pointers of future disasters waiting to happen.Let us resolve to keep the color of the money in white only..let the Government print the notes in any color.
Hold back for a minute.Before talking something harsh in anger hold yourself back for a minute.Before buying something impulsively hold yourself back for a minute.Before eating that spicy but junk food hold yourself back for a minute.
Ask : use that minute to ask yourself: Should I respond to this in anger now?..Should I buy this now? Should I eat this now…this one minute of hold back and pause will do you a world of good :Will save you lot of avoidable headaches in future.Because whatever you do without a second thought and without a minute of quick evaluation is disastrous.
Try to practice…HOLD YOURSELF BACK FOR A MINUTE WHEN IN ANGER,WHEN UNDER AN URGE….
Every one wants more of what we have.More of money..,a bigger Car, a much bigger house.We buy our dream car today,the color,the make,the brand all of which we have been waiting to get is ours today with part of our money and part from our banker.
The neighbour,our friend or somebody else buys yet another new car reportedly better,smoother to drive,more kilometre per unit of fuel,all of which makes us nervous craving to see that new car,drive it…gone is our happiness which we enjoyed two days before.
Do we have enough money to buy this new one,or do we have to borrow? we start planning for that and ignore the existing car and our happiness along with it. Now is the big question.
DO WE NEED MORE?
DO WE NEED THIS NEW CAR?
Both the question and answer are with us.And thereby the key to our happiness…Am i right…let us see .
