“But beware of this about callings: they may not lead us where we intended to go or even where we want to go. If we choose to follow, we may have to be willing to let go of the life we already planned and accept whatever is waiting for us. And if the calling is true, though we may not have gone where we intended, we will surely end up where we need to be.”
Steve Goodier

Abhijit Naskar
“I work almost all of my non-sleeping hours, but never do I feel busy, because my work is the fulfillment of my lifeforce. Here, some may say that I am lucky to do what I love, but not everybody finds a livelihood of their choice. To them I say, luck had very little to do with me doing what I love. I am able do what I love, because since my childhood I had only one mission, that is to unite my humankind and that very unshakable mission paved the path for my work. I made my mission my life. I dreamt my mission - I breathed my mission - I lived my mission.

Having fun like a teenager does, was not in my dictionary. Getting high and getting laid like an adolescent does, was not in my vocabulary. Going on dates like a teenager does, was not in my book. I had only one vision in front of my eyes, and that was the vision of a united humanity. And today you know me as a humanitarian thinker, because of all those so called "fun times" I sacrificed for a greater goal. And till this day my mission flows through my veins like blood. Now, here I am not saying that an adolescent is not supposed to have fun - in fact, part of the purpose of my work is to build a world where every child from everywhere has the basic right to cherish their childhood without worry, fear and insecurities.

So the point is, if you truly can dedicate your life to one single mission, no matter the nature of the mission, then sooner or later the mission itself will pave its own way for you to keep on walking - so, close your eyes, visualize your mission and take the leap of faith.”
Abhijit Naskar, Aşkanjali: The Sufi Sermon

Abhijit Naskar
“If you ain't ready to die for a purpose, you ain't living yet.”
Abhijit Naskar

Abhijit Naskar
“Whatever you do, do it with your whole being. Become one with that act. Forget thirst, hunger, sleep, sex, and give your whole existence to one idea - an idea to which you can boldly and unhesitantly point and say "this idea is me". You and your idea must become one, for that idea to become a reality.”
Abhijit Naskar, Mad About Humans: World Maker's Almanac

“Having the ability to realize that God will use your pain for his purpose is a blessing.”

Tom Rath
“Don't get me wrong; devoting time outside of work to serving others is a great idea. Recent research suggests that people who do so — by volunteering in their communities, for example — have better health and wellbeing, and perform better at work. Having a clear purpose beyond paid work also has a buffering effect. If your entire identity is wound up in a job that could go away, your wellbeing is in constant jeopardy.”
Tom Rath, Life's Great Question: Discover How You Contribute To The World

Abhijit Naskar

“If you can devote your existence to one purpose, to such an extent that you breathe that purpose, dream that purpose and live that purpose, then your mind automatically gets rewired as per your will to serve that purpose.”
Abhijit Naskar, Ain't Enough to Look Human

Abhijit Naskar
“Ten footsteps with a purpose can give you more joy than a thousand footsteps without purpose.”
Abhijit Naskar, Aşkanjali: The Sufi Sermon

“I’m here to do my best and I’m here to be playful and happy and mainly just to do my best and to follow my heart and to be kind to others. But mainly to be kind to myself because I think the most important thing we can do is to establish a better relationship here inside. When you establish peace, when you establish love, when you establish kindness here [inside], you cannot act any other way to the outside world. And I think that is the purpose anyways for me. And to share that with the world.”
Mimi Ikonn

Abhijit Naskar
