Not Just A Call Archana Kapoor Nagpal Homepage
I used to wonder that people can tell the same thing of ‘not being disturbed’ in a civilized manner. The pitch of voice can be controlled to a level where it does hit my ear drums rather than blowing them away.It is a very small gesture that I noticed as I was a part of it. But this small gesture could make someone’s job interesting to him or her. If we cannot respect someone then do not disrespect as well. “If you want to be respected by others, the great thing is to respect yourself. Only by that, only by self-respect will you compel others to respect you.” - Fyodor Dostoyevsky

Small Things Make a Big Difference Archana Kapoor Nagpal Homepage
“The conventional Happy New Year approach is to think of the New Year as something that happens outside of our selves. It is a good luck wish that the New Year, in some magical way, will bring us our heart’s desire. We look to the New Year to make us happy. When we expect happiness to come to us from the outside, we are usually disappointed. Happiness is not guaranteed by sunny weather, a raise in pay, a new car, a beautiful home or anything else of a material nature. External things are often possessed by very unhappy people. Happiness does not come out of a New Year, it comes out of men and women. Life does not change when we hang a new calendar on the wall or when the clock strikes midnight and a New Year begins. The only way life will change for us is when we change ourselves” - Wilferd A. Peterson

She Made Me Feel Better Archana Kapoor Nagpal Homepage
I was working as a swimming coach when I met Anita for the first time. Anita is working for an architectural firm, irrespective of all her medical problems. Arthritis has made my life difficult, one problem leading to another. The days are getting harder and Anita is an inspiration for me. Her acceptance to her reality gave me strength to bear my pain. Meeting Anita helped me to understand that there are three angles to every problem – my angle, your angle and the right angle.

Reached My Destination Archana Kapoor Nagpal Homepage
My real life incident that helped me to understand that one should have tiny and fragile ego. “I”, “me” and “self” will never let relationships progress in one’s life. One thing I have learned that we should not take too long to shed our ego. We should not make delays to ask for an apology as it loses its significance. As we say an apology at the right time can save relationships.

Principle of Life: Forget-Forgive-Move On Archana Kapoor Nagpal Homepage
Each one of us does not possess the art of forgiving. We might lack the strength to forget things and forgive others. It takes a strong person to say sorry, and an ever stronger person to forgive. A simple rule of thumb in life is that if you cannot forgive others then do not expect others to forgive you. We all are human beings and are born to make mistakes. If God can forgive us for our bad deeds why cannot we forgive others? Make it a principle of your life – Forget, Forgive and Move On!
