MOTIVATIONAL WORKSHOP (DESIGN YOUR LIFESTYLE) – 21st, JULY, 2016
A refreshing and enriching workshop was conducted by the World’s youngest motivational speaker Rushabh Kaalia for the students of Std. XII. The objective of this talk was to inspire and motivate the students to get the best out of themselves and do well in the future.
According to the speaker, if a person is willing to give 100% to some work, he will get the best results most of the time. He stated that he would share experiences and was able to establish “a connect”’ to the young student audience. With the help of an example, he stated that, life is a journey of continuous learning, and learning should never stop.
He also mentioned that life is all about time or number of breaths one takes. In other words, life is related to money, and life should not be wasted.
One of the important things is to show gratitude in life-gratitude to God in the morning, parents for bringing us up with love, teachers for enlightening us and finally, God at the end of the day. One must do productive work and not waste time on the distractions such as social media.
Using examples, the speaker went on to make the students understand the meaning of the five years of study which will enable them to lead a full filled and happy life in future.
Finally, negativity can be bad for development of one’s personality. Hence it is important to let go, forgive people’s actions and words.
If students do their best with an attitude of gratitude and positivity; if they give 100% effort with an attitude of learning and are ready to receive more; forget and forgive negativity; while keeping the future goals and life in mind they will do much better. By remembering the above they will experience a better quality of life.
