It was the last day of the year 2016, and our very own CEO Vinay Singhal gave an eye-opening speech in the morning meeting. He told how introspection can make us better and how together we can grow bigger in the days to come.
We had a couple of powerful minutes after which working hours commenced. Since I had already started diving into deep thoughts, my inner voice was reporting everything about the year that was ending soon.
The whole year was rotating in front of my eyes and every single instance seemed crystal clear. And I thought, I should share it with you all so that this universe multiplies all the empathy and compassion from you to return me back.
2016 taught me one thing clearly, the only way to avoid regrets is not to neglect what your inner conscience says. It screams every single second when you are doing wrong. You even don't have to differentiation what's wrong and what's right. Just give a few seconds to listen to your inner spirit, it will automatically tell you whether you are standing right or not.
The consequence - The horizon of knowledge didn't expand as per my expectation. I badly regret that I didn't read much. 2017, you will see the better version of myself.
I apologize to each and every member in my team. I love all of you equally by heart, but didn't perform as per your expectation. I promise, I will give my more than 100% this year for the same.
Some sort of negativity has spoiled my inner world. I know this is not at all good. I will not disappoint myself this year.
I am sorry mummy, this year I will not let you worry about this. I realised what my sisters had been telling me, they say - no dreams can be fulfilled with degrading health.
Knowingly, unknowingly. I realised, lack of clear communication is very much harmful. I will take care not to repeat this.
Consequence - I missed all those possible instances that would give me immense happiness and energy.
I kept my time and mind occupied almost all the time. Again, I missed all those opportunities that would make me smile. This is bad. I regret.
Life is too short to hold grudges.
Making wrong decisions gives you regrets and pains, at the same time, eye-opening life lessons.
I wish I would make my life better this year.
Guys, wish you again a very prosperous new year 2017. If you could relate to any of these instances listed above, do write to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I would love to hear how your 2016 was.
I will catch you in the next letter. Till then, keep reading, keep sharing. Love you all!
