Women in business and home| Don’t mess

She is ultimate: accept her presence and power

Women’s day is at the corner and everyone is gearing up! With series of events lined up to cheer up the existence of womanhood. Appreciate! Why can’t this respect and cheer be alive forever? The craze will be alive for month and then fade out. Department wise people would be busy to make and come with creative games, themes, workshops and treats. We have also conducted many self-defense workshops on this occasion and would be doing it again. To respect someone it needs courage and specially if its a woman in your team. They bring in energy and enhance the lively environment around you. There are so many organization which have high respect and regards to the women staff. She creates a great deal of difference in a family, institute, organization and nation at large. 

A woman completes you [you=man]! Literally she does! What are you looking for?

However at the same time, there are so many who disrespect them, their brith, their success and their presence. Sometime we need confirmation to ears, to mind and to heart. Ego kills and will destroy you one day. We need the society to be more mature and open minded. Recently I came across a post on The Guardian. It asked its readers for their views and thoughts about what difference a women can make in the economic development? You should definitely read for yourself to believe the importance of investing in women and respecting them. Women and business: the heart of economic value creation.

If the women creates such great value to an organization, think hard and realize how important she is in our society, families and in your own life! 

Appreciate the presence of women around you. Celebrate it every now and then. A day is less to celebrate her…. her greatness, kindness and love. 

Cheers and Love,

Anand

Kindness = Heart – Mind

incense-2042096_640.jpg

LOVE IS LIFE

Change is constant and the impact is not seen immediately; with time the impact is seen. One act of kindness everyday will help you withstand all the pressure, stress and tensions of life, job, relationship and the ultimate to sustain your good self.

There is a magical twinkle of doing something good for others. The content that you would receive just by doing one act of kindness will help and protect you from the negative impacts of change. Your emotions would be controlled, your thoughts would be tamed and you would feel happy about yourself.

We, are ruled by our mind. It only puts us in a situation and a condition which never lets us sleep in peace. We are always in pain, bothered, pressurized, jealous and never feel proud about our-self. Kids are an outstanding example of how to live life. They are happy, sad, cry and innocent – but the very next moment they are again happy and enjoy themselves. Kids don’t have ego, its not developed and it doesn’t allow its mind to take control of its life. Kids think from heart, they do everything from their heart and the heart is always pure and unbiased.

Your one act of kindness, touches your heart and this is the place which should be nurtured. Just feel that moment of time; when someone had touched your heart! Stay in that emotion, enjoy it and share this emotions with others who can enjoy the emotions of being loved.

The only truth deep down your heart: is to be loved and to be loved!

Your one act of kindness everyday will help you end your day in style, in content and will protect you. Sounds stupid! Yes, it is! Listen to your heart and let it flow.

Be loved and give love,
For Love,
Cheers.

Why should I provide FREE online training?

accessories-84528_640.jpg

What motivates me to frequently conduct FREE online SELF-Confidence Training for women/girls?

Life keeps acting pricey. It is simple, yet demanding and in this hustle the basic need is overlooked. We as humans are fully equipped to take care of ourselves. We can survive alone as well. However with growing time, we started being dependent, with time our grooming got compromised, the gradual process of change completely changed the individual. The instinct were lost and now for sure, the humans are lost. 

On a regular basis every month, I keep training 3 to 4 dedicated and highly motivated women/girl who want to make a difference in their life. Many a times I have been asked why I conduct FREE SELF-confidence training for women/girls. There are numerous reasons to it, am trying to give opportunity to those who are very shy from within, who are confused and do not know what to do, there are those who are very low on self-esteem and need a push and then there are those who are constantly trying to help others.

Providing free workshop keeps me grounded and helps me to offer more help and support. It helps to understand how better we can design our curriculum so that we reach out to everyone.

SELF-confidence Booster Module is a perfect way to start your practice to stay healthy, fit and fine. Our curriculum uses an amalgamation of karate and meditation along with other fillers i.e art, music. It is not at all harsh on the body and people of all ages can do it. A perfect blend to boost body-mind and soul. This module has been designed and developed by Anand Koti a 2nd Dan Black in Karate.

BACK PAIN/POOR BODY POSTURE: Body pain is a result of poor and bad Ergonomics. A person with body pain and confused mind is someone who can be said to have weak Mental Health. Your day-to-day productivity is badly affected due to problems created out of bad postures. Now you don’t have to worry, you will get lessons to understand the correct ergonomics that is essential for healthy living

BEING ALONE IS HARDLY PROBLEMATIC: Going out for a late night movie and can’t find a companion? Want to take a trip to your favourite hill station but have no one to accompany you? Bored of the crowd around you and want to take a lonely walk down the countryside? With self-defense techniques by your side, you don’t have to worry about being alone anymore.

Whether it’s a lewd comment on the street or a sexual innuendo on the bus she can always speak up for herself without having to worry about the consequences because she knows that she is good enough to handle whatever comes her way

DOMESTIC VIOLENCE, NOT FOR ME: Domestic violence in no form is ever acceptable. But what is better – to prevent it from happening in the first place or to curb it after it has happened? If you are skilled in self-defense, you never have to be a victim and you can start standing up for yourself from the day first finger gets pointed at you.

MY RESPECT, MY RESPONSIBILITY: The respect and dignity of women have been at stake for way too long. In spite of matching steps with men in every single field, women are still considered the weaker sex. It’s now time to turn the tables and show the world what women are capable of. Self-defense is no more a choice; in today’s world, it is a necessity

SELF – confidence Booster

motivation-1388479_640.jpg

My advise would be stop and ask yourself what do you want? What are you exactly looking for! Most of the time we are confused. We get more confused when we start finding random things which get aligned with our confused thoughts. Simple things are loosing its fragrance, which actually fills your life with love, peace and oneness.

As an individual many of us are okay to miss out on those simple things i.e mindful breathing, spending sometime alone, giving opportunity to the child inside to be mischievous, having breakfast on time, keeping the stuff back on its place, counting the stars at night.  You can think of all those simple things that you like and frequently ignore doing it.

You constantly work hard, during appraisals you put in more than what you could have possibly thought of, you tend to push the extra mile and finally you see the result. You achieve either a promotion, salary hike or a new job. Awesome as it sounds. Likewise you try to put in efforts to your relationship based on your respective status. You invest time, money, emotions and finally you achieve a beautiful family. It makes me happy to see what you all are achieving.

However, let me ask? No you don’t have to reply back. Honestly, think over and reply to yourself: Are you really happy from inside? Are you happy with your relationship? Are you happy with your job? And are you happy with your mental health?

You still have a lot of room for improvement. Just because you can push yourself as per your need to achieve whatever you want. If you are able to manage then its awesome; if you honestly feel you are! How long will be the question?

This is my personal observation; all the parents want the best of the world for their kids. However they just want it! The Life-Skills that they learnt from parents is a hindrance; the ergonomics learnt from parents is a hindrance and as a parent you can figure out the eating habits, addiction of gadgets, obesity..…when it gets too late; then starts the blame-game (i guess it is at an unconscious level) to justify the action. It’s very easy to point fingers and blame. However it requires balls to accept and change. Sooner or later every individual before dying repents for something or the other. Naked facts of life. Where do you see yourself!

Attention required: why? Just to press a panic button and make you realize. If you can achieve as per your need, then you should learn to organize yourself. This will save you from pushing yourself hard, every now and then.

As a trained martial artist we have developed and designed a SELF-confidence module which is an amalgamation of martial arts and meditation. Tried, tested and successful. Human Body needs to be healthy at all levels to function properly. This is the most under rated and ignored fact of life, yet ironically its the reality. As the name suggests SELF-confidence it purely narrows down to SELF of the individual and this is how we attempt to make an impact. We work on your body, strength, patience, endurance, mind and try to touch your SELF. This module specifically addresses few common as well important issues which are psychological as well physiological in nature. Positive spillovers have been recorded. Customized curriculum is designed as per the requirements. Let me tell you this module is not so rude on your body. However it will try to push you further and make you realize your potential. A perfect blend of different flavors curated only for the serious takers who would like to make life easier for themselves and as well for the future generation.

Love yourself
Cheers,
Anand

 

There is no place other than road to run!

runners-751853_1280.jpgFeel happy to see the steady rise of health conscious people.  They are into many things, which keep them healthy. Fitness is moving to a different level.  I see them walking, jogging, cycling, gyming, cross-fit, yoga, strength training, endurance and so many more. This really makes me feel happy, as personally am a self-defence trainer and a health conscious individual.

What I had been noticing and observing is that most of the joggers are jogging on the road with the on-going vehicular traffic! My concern is specifically for the early morning joggers and cyclist who are out on fitness journey before sun-rise, in near pitch-darkness. They are rarely visible jogging on the road. During monsoon season it’s a challenge, the drivers need to be more vigilant to identify the presence of humans on road specifically at early hours.

Okay, there is no place other than road to run! I can understand, there is no harm to be on the road. However, how safe is it!

I have closely observed joggers running opposite traffic direction so that the driver can see their little hands moving here and there – asking them move aside and not to run-over them. At the same time, they are cautious, alert and in a position to run off the road if the driver miss seeing you. The anxiety, stress and extra alertness are clearly seen on the face of the joggers.

My question would be to the health conscious people – joggers – walkers and cyclist. Does this stress help you when you are out there to stay healthy?

The simple solution would be to educate and use common sense. Rather than keeping your mind alert. Get reflectors, glow in darkness, choose your freedom, and enjoy your workouts.

It would really make things easier for the joggers and as well for the drivers if certain precautions are taken care. The joggers and cyclists should wear radium/ light reflecting clothes which can discover your presence on road at such an hour, when no one else is on the road.

Your workout gear needs to be bright, fluorescent and must reflect! Don’t go for black, grey or brown attire which would absorb light and make you feel sexy.

The gym owners, marathon runners, health conscious people should encourage them about safety and how to be visibly visible when on road. You are a health conscious individual sweating out to be healthy. Enjoy it and be mindful about being safe. Train hard and be smart.

Cheers

Power of Mind

vintage-1418613_640.png

I had been repeatedly focusing upon the Human Mind as its the most unpredictable thing. This quote is a constant reminder to be alert and not feed the mind with negative thoughts.

Human Mind is unpredictable; after all nothing is permanent ~ Koti

Human body has many unconscious processes which are not felt by the individual. These can be broadly put down for better understanding and relating to what I am trying to say:

  • Breathing – many of you do not know that you are breathing or the mere importance of breathing. In deep sleep you are not aware of your breath, your body, place and time
  • Eye hand coordination – the way the eyes and hand coordinate in sync
  • Hand – Leg coordination – while walking or running the beautiful coordination of Hand-Leg

so on and so forth.. These are few unconscious bodily movements which are happening irrespective of your conscious efforts to regulate it.

Deep inside your body there are numerous processes which are taking place constantly – digestion of food, regeneration of cells and muscles, relaxation of body, releasing of hormones for better health, hair growth, nail growth you name it and its happening inside your body.

This entire hard work gets affected if your little mind starts throwing tantrums. Human Mind which is the most powerful has the capacity to make you feel – happy, sad, gives you an electrifying feeling, boost up your motivation, puts you in depression, makes you a leader, makes you feel a looser, makes you think the world has come to an end, makes you feel you are the most blessed, makes you feel you are the best of best and what not.

The choice and option is within – think positive be positive

We behave in a manner which is directed by the little mind and the situations around. The mind needs to be trained and controlled. Yet, we are wasting our time on looking physically good, smart, beautiful, build up muscles, tone up tummy, six pack, hour-glass figure and the list goes on and on and on. The beauty is inside you, feel it and start living it. The day you start controlling your MIND and STOP entertaining negative thoughts you would soon find peace within, you would feel oneness and automatically you would start loving yourself. Many positive spill over are gradually seen and reflected by the individual who starts working on his own MIND. Being positive is not difficult, it needs efforts. It needs discipline, dedication and determination.

We are trapped in MAYA and it constantly pulls us down, makes us compare, makes us feel low and it does everything possible to make us feel miserable. However, once you realize the importance of being positive, importance of meditation, importance of doing SEVA, importance of helping others without any selfish interest, and importance of GOD you would gradually understand how the MIND can be controlled.

We are individuals with half-knowledge and [ass|u|me] things on our own beliefs. Start focusing and be clear – you need to train your mind. For success, for better relationships, for handling pressure and stress, for happiness and to serve everyone with love.

Don’t entertain negative thoughts – kick them up before they come near yourself. Meditate, spend time with positive people, spend time alone, focus on mindful breathing, enjoy the bliss of stasang and pray to the almighty GOD.

For Love,
Anand
