YOU ARE THE MOST IMPORTANT PERSON IN THIS WORLD...





















Pic.: Mehul Bhuva




“You are the most important person in this world.

It is for you to make your life the way you choose to.”


First thing first: You are not only an important person in this world… You are, in deed, ‘the most important’ person!

But then, dear, take it in the right sense… feel it,  say it  and act on it in the right sense.

Don’t feel or say it to undermine others… but do it to lift yourself up in life…

In Life, you really, really come first… Your first responsibility is to love, care and nurse yourself enough… build yourself enough… trust yourself enough…

Because, unless you believe, that you come first… unless you feel, that you are important… unless you feel, that you deserve joy, love and prosperity in life… you will not be able to experience them despite having them abundantly in your life.

It is only when you feel joyful, successful and prosperous, that you are capable of sharing it with others…

It is only when you feel you care yourself enough, that you are capable of caring for others…

It is only when you treat yourself with respect and dignity you deserve, that you are capable of treating others accordingly…

Even Lord says, “Love thy neighbor as you love thyself!”

The Holy Book, also, says, that God has made you in His own image. If so, what sort of image that must be?

Like you, others, too, are the most important people in the world…

Treat the world the way you treat yourself… with loads of importance!

Hold others in high esteem as you hold yourself in.

And, remember my dear: God has bestowed upon you that precious endowment called - ‘the freedom of choice’.

So, the kind of life you are going to lead shall be the kind of life you choose to lead…

Yes dear, nothing more, nothing less than that…

And, yes, yes:  it is ‘for you’ to do that!

P.S.:

In the early 80’s, as a stranger and a struggling young-man in this big city of Mumbai (then Bombay), I was filled with self-doubts and fears. My self-confidence level was at its lowest pit, and I was gripped with anxiety about my future. It was during these harrowing times, I had found on the roadside an old copy of Dr. Napoleon Hill’s inspirational classic – ‘Think & Grow Rich’… 

My life was destined to change, immediately!

I have been so influenced by Dr. Napoleon Hill’s ‘Success philosophy’ - particularly his famous line: “Whatever the mind of man can conceive and believe, it can achieve,” - that it would be impossible for me to shed off this influence all my life.

So, as a young-teacher in his twenties, when I had scribbled those passages in the little booklet ‘THE DAWN’, they loudly – and proudly - echoed the core tenets of Dr. Hill’s life-lessons. What he had assimilated from the lives of scores of successful people and passed on to us, I was now trying to do, in my own way, to my students…

With my deepest humility and reverence, I dedicate this book ‘THE ECHOES OF THE DAWN’ - to the one who made me ‘Stand up’ in life…Dr. Napoleon Hill.

We Would Also Like To Mention That Most People That Find Themselves Devoid Of Health Insurance Are Usually Students, Self-employed And People Who Are Without A Job. More Than Half With The Uninsured Are Really Under The Age Of Thirty-five. They Do Not Come To Feel They Are Needing Health Insurance Because They Are Young In Addition To Healthy. Their Income Is Usually Spent On Homes, Food, As Well As Entertainment. Many Individuals That Do Represent The Working Class Either 100 % Or In Their Free Time Are Not Given Insurance By Means Of Their Work So They Head Out Without With The Rising Tariff Of Health Insurance In The States. Thanks For The Suggestions You Write About Through This Web Site. agen betting terpercaya
