The Bumble Bee Effect…

According to scientists, the bumblebee’s body is too heavy and its wing span too small. Aerodynamically, the bumblebee cannot fly. But the bumblebee doesn’t know that and it keeps flying.

In fact, bumblebees simply flap harder than other insects, increasing the amplitude of their wing strokes to achieve more lift, and use a figure-of-eight wing motion to create low-pressure vortices to pull them up.

When you don’t know your limitations, you go out and surprise yourself. In hindsight, you wonder if you had any limitations. The only limitations a person has are those that are self-imposed.

What you need to achieve your goals

Hi friends!

Do you also wonder like many other people that in spite of having all desired qualification, putting all your efforts, spending a lot of money;  why you are unable to get the desired results.

What is lacking? what is it, you need to achieve your goals?

I asked this question to myself many times. And what I discovered really opened my eyes. I would like to share my findings here.

If you have ever asked the same questions to yourself, it will be surely helpful.

When I frequently asked these questions to myself they made me think hard & gave birth to many more questions like-

1) Do I really know what I want?

2) Do I know how can I achieve what I want?

3) Do I know what I need to achieve my goals?

4) If yes, do I have what I need to achieve my goals?

5) If no, do I know how can I get what I need?

6) Am I determined to get what I want?

7) Are my actions matching up with my goals?

8) Am I managing my time effectively?

and so on…

and this self interrogation resulted in the following conclusion-

UntitledTill the time I get back and share how I came to know what I need to achieve my goals; you ask the same questions o yourself and jot down the answers in your journal.

Stay connected…and remember to give your valuable feedback.

With Love
