Most Important Need of the Day!


Yesterday, while interacting with few youngsters realized how many of them lack clarity on their Own Goal in Life. Is the Goal so important in life or one should take on the life as it comes. Certainly some clarity is must or I would say not some but definite clarity is must. Fun, Enjoyment is also a must but has to have its place when it comes to deciding the stream you want to pursue. In Indian context, as it from 11th std onwards, one chooses the correct one that one really wants or keep blaming for life and keep cursing the bad decision at some point of time

Many join Science or Arts or Commerce Stream just because of peers or just because someone at home / some relative puts words in their mouth. Do we ever check with the young ones as to what they want to do in life? May be parents at times are seen only getting aptitude test done for the kids and move on with it. Is it enough, I feel it’s much more than that. The kids must be allowed to explore themselves through different means, methods and exposures; not only indoors but outdoors as well before they take a call.

We thought of giving youngsters an opportunity / exposure through different means / activities to find out for themselves; what they really are capable of and what they really want to home on to when time comes to decide for themselves.

Do join in for the Youth Boot camp if you wish to undergo a process that will provide for the clarity about self or a clarity on  what you want for your near and dear ones. You can enroll them following the link below for registration:–07-nov-to-10-nov-2013-by-m-i-initiatives

A Simple Way to Achieve Your Goal

Good read..
Put across very well..


My last post set down my goal for the rest of 2013. Exercise 6 days per week every week until Christmas day. On the road to the healthiest possible me!

I’m going to admit right here, right now that I have not been 100% percent successful so far. It has been the usual excuses, however valid they may be- I’ve been so busy with work and exhausted at the end of the day etc etc… I’ve had about 3 days where I haven’t got out to exercise.

What is different this time is that just because I’ve had a few slip ups, it hasn’t changed my goal. Previously I would’ve given up, said that it wasn’t a realistic goal or that my worklife right now just doesn’t allow for such a goal. Best to try later when things settle down… Forgotten about the original goal until I had another crack at it in a few months…

Youth Boot Camp: 07 to 10 Nov 2013


This Diwali Vacation, thought to get young to Outdoors; with a belief that, Leaders are made and not born—the young, impressionable minds need exposure at the correct age to understand the nuances of Leadership i. e. in their formative years. instill self-confidence not just through knowledge (which is provided in plenty through theory in our education system today) but vide honing their latent physical and mental prowess. Also, educate them on the significance of Discipline (more importantly Self-discipline) in their life and much more.

Join in; you can write to us at

Happy Outing!
