Ten lies that we always believe

In life, we encounter a whole range of stale ideas about what’s supposedly right, and what’s wrong. We hear some things so often that automatically start accepting them as truth. Since many of these things are negative, when we latch on to them, they can weigh us down for years on end.
Here’s another great article from professional ’lifehacker’ Mark Chernoff, in which he helps us to confront a number of potentially damaging lies head on.


Lie number 1: Alone means lonely
‘Alone’ doesn’t always mean lonely, and ‘relationship’ doesn’t always mean happy. Being alone will never cause as much loneliness as the wrong relationship. If things don’t feel right, take a break and spend some time with number one — you. Find yourself first. Appreciate your own worth. And next time you’re in a relationship that’s sinking, you’ll be prepared to swim to safety.


Lie number 2: Happiness comes when you have everything you want
To be happy doesn’t mean you don’t desire more, it means you’re thankful for what you have and patient for what’s yet to come. Sometimes we get so caught up in trying to accomplish something big, that we fail to notice the little things that give life its magic. So appreciate today for all it’s worth. These are the good old days you’re going to miss in the years ahead.


Lie number 3: Pain is something you can see
Never underestimate the pain of a person, because in all honesty, everyone is struggling. Some people are just better at hiding it than others. You don’t know what goes on behind closed doors. Passing judgement is an unnecessary waste of time and energy. If you have time to judge other people, you have way too much time on your hands. Get off your behind and do something meaningful.


Lie number 4: Life is supposed to be a certain way
It is ultimately only our own thoughts that hurt us. Simply feeling what we are feeling, and dealing with it honestly, can be very healing. We always have the freedom to choose how we wish to respond to whatever life presents to us. Let go of how you thought your life should be, and embrace the real life that is trying to work its way into your consciousness. Change what you can change, change your thoughts about what you can’t change, and move on in peace.


Lie number 5: You are supposed to be a certain way
When you stop comparing yourself with other versions of yourself, real or imagined; and when you stop comparing yourself with other people, real or imagined; that is when you taste a peace that is real, not imagined.


Lie number 6: Only a privileged few have the ability to live a great life
If every morning you wake up and say, «Yes, today is going to be a great day.» And every afternoon you find a reason to say, «Yes, today is a great day.» And every night you find a reason to say, «Yes, today was a great day.» Then one day, many moons from now, you’ll look back, smile at the memories, and say, «Yes, I lived a great life.»


Lie number 7: Tough times are unnecessary
Sometimes things have to go wrong before they can go right. Sometimes you have to let the wrong people walk out before the right people can walk in. Sometimes you have to feel weak in order to know what it’s like to truly be strong. Sometimes you have to feel a little broken to realize you’ll never truly be shattered. Sometimes you have to meet a lot of people you like before you find the one you love. Sometimes you have to take the good in with the bad, knowing that in the end it’s all a worthwhile learning experience.


Lie number 8: To be strong is to not feel pain
In reality, the strongest people are the ones who feel pain, accept it, learn from it, and work through it. It’s all about having the courage to ask for a time out, to shed a tear, to dust yourself off, and then getting back in the ring to fight like you’ve never fought before.


Lie number 9: You can fake it
Feel the love before saying, «I love you.» Feel the gratitude before saying, «Thank you.» Feel the humility before saying, «I’m sorry.» Feel the release before saying, «I forgive you.» When you feel it before you say it, it needs fewer words and goes straight to the heart of your relationship.


Lie number 10: Dreaming is a waste of time
The greatest gifts are those invisible to the eyes but felt deeply by the heart. What we can see is usually just a small fraction of what is possible. Imagination is having the vision to see what is just below the surface — to picture that which is essential, but invisible to the eye. Somewhere, something incredible is waiting to be known, you just have to dream big enough to discover it.

Anchor Effect - Where you plant a number in someone's mind and change their way of looking at thing




Simple example is where you sell something at $199, by just showing a big number to someone like $500 , this $500 has just a simple role of planting that big number in buyers mind and nothing else. 

Lets see another example where you want DONATION


I want donation from someone for some cause and do not want to force them with an exact number here are two ways to do it 

Option 1 : Sir, We are doing XYZ for poor children, some donation from you will help!, how much would you like to contribute ?

Option 2 : Sir, We are doing XYZ for poor children, some donation from you will help! . A lot of people have donated their 1 week salary , which is equal to Rs 10,000 , but you can donate whatever you want !

The Guy - Rs 10,000 seems too much to me right now , I can do maximum Rs 1,000 .

You - Fine , any amount is good for poor children 

So you got Rs 1,000 because you anchored the person subconsciously with Rs 10,000 and that is used as benchmark for taking decision.

So anchoring is just a trick to plant a number in other's mind so that you are benefitted. 

Another example is this


Client - Hey financial advisor, What is your fees ?

Advisor - Rs 10,000 

Client - What ! .. thats too much !



NOW with Anchor Effect

Client - Hey Financial Advisor - Whats your fees ?

Advisor - Rs 50,000 

Client - What ? Are you kidding me ?

Advisor - You should be thankful, if this was US , you would be paying $1,000 per hour, thats Rs 60,000 per hour and given you need to work for at least 20 hours for a project , its Rs 12 lacs . In India its damn cheaper to work with financial advisors , from that angle, Rs 50,000 is nothing in India , provided we do much better work then US counterparts

Client - Come on , this is just insane, no one will pay that much in India

Advisor - What do you think is right number in India ?

Client - Rs 15,000 - 20,000 is maximum one will pay ? I can not go beyond Rs 15,000 ?

Advisor - hmm.. Fine - Lets go ahead 


I know its not exactly how the conversation will go on, but ANCHOR effect surely helps .

What do you think about Rishabh Pant's 26 ball 78?

This question was asked to me on Quora which is a social media app for asking questions and getting answers

Read the answer below #NojotoQuote

Well, I am not surprised that's all I can say.

Most people are backing him from his recent performances but I was saying about him since the first time I saw him open with Ishan Kishan in under 19 WC.

I thought Ishan Kishan was MSD and Pant was Juvraj, both of them have similar backlift and similar striking abilities.

He prefers playing longer formats of the game as there is a lot of open spaces in test matches for him to hit.

In T20Is, he is very good.

But problem is with his ODIs performance.

He doesn't rotate strikes enough to be consistent. No wonder his average is in the 20s in domestic 50 over's cricket.

So it was not that surprising also that he was inconsistent in the ODIs for India.

But I would like look at this differently. I want him to bat in different positions in WC XI. I think he should bat at number 6 position after Dhoni and Kedar Jadav number 4 and number 5 respectively.

With Hardik Pandya at number 7

I believe this will be a very very powerful batting line-up.

Pant should be asked to play his natural game in that position without thinking much as at the moment he is getting confused whenever he was asked bat more sensibly in ODIs by taking single

So one should make sure that he plays with an uncluttered mind. If he scores one of those 20 ball 40–50 batting in number 6 position in the last 10 overs then we will surely get a huge score.

Keeping that in mind I have kept him in my WC XI in place of Karthik. If he still fails to perform then Karthik can bat in his position

I believe Rishabh Pant is an outstanding talent but needs to be handled well. And I don't think that's happening

Virat Kohli isn't very good at handling talent, he screwed up with KLRahul by not giving him chances when he was performing consistently and now he isn't handling Rishabh Pant as well

Ganguly was master of handling talent, maybe Virat Kohli should learn a things or two from Ganguly's book.

Ganguly said to Shewag, “Don't worry, you have 15 games, you will still play even if you failed to perform so play without any fear”

And we all know how that's turned out

Something similar should be done with Pant as well but that didn't happen and neither with KLRahul

I really hope that Pant finally comes to his own in the WC, he can be a real game changer

✍️A story of perplexed identity (u and me✓)?



India The largest democratic country and the country of maximum youth population around 65 % and in this 50% of them are under the age of 25 .i am not telling u this data to show or enrich my content , but let me aware you that 50%
Of our young population among which 
Approx 90% are literate are my central figure and most significant thing is that among them 32,308 commit suicide due to parental pressure in youth education and 2403 due to failure in their examination.we all are aware of Indian education system and most famous and 
Common dillemma for the Indian students is their career options.so let me tell u story of a person who was initially good at studies and then he thought that he must complete his education from the top most institutes in india and the first thing which he figure out was IIT(indian institute of technology) and for it he took coachings but u know the problem was perseverance he just study someday so much and sometime whole day passed in 
Just enjoying .he passed his class 12th and now the real fight began because it was high time and after boards consecutive exams were there he could not qualify a single of them except one which was for pursuing Bsc from a central university of his region so it's checked fact the students and the environment of that Central University was not up to the mark which he thought of in his class so he left off and started changing and the perplexed identity let him go through varied career options and finally he cleared none of them and the pressure increased as now the area of interest  and career was being smaller as compared to the dreamt one which was quite amusing to listen and going through it was passionating and full of ecstacy
The fight of one human and perplexed identity was on it ended with a common result either to change himself or to quit and limit up his dreams because he could not clear the examination of a institute so he could not have a good quality education where things were not teached as a subject but as a art of interest to know , curiosity to make and innovate In it and finally to develop themselves as ecstatic teacher to expand it .India is not the country where we can't afford this thing but the problem is that our maximum of the youth population is too involved in this scenario and forming a system to give their advice of consult to take them as a subject perform hard in them and fight among themselves for survival of high and quality standard of living .may I am not much experienced and may things dont work this way bit the point i dont want to be the part of this scenario and me myself thought to not let my advice to limit someone from dreaming and living in the passionate career they all wanted to go in .
May i have given u a better perspective to think on and not turn atleast urself to a perplexed one.

What are the benefits of drinking black Coffee?

Drinking black coffee has numerous health benefits as it is loaded with antioxidants and nutrients. Let’s have a look at some of the most health benefits of drinking black coffee. Drinking four or more cups of caffeinated coffee daily lowered the risk of colon cancer recurrence or death by 52 percent compared to those who drank no coffee. Drinking two or three cups per day was also beneficial, lowering the risk of recurrence or death by 31 percent. Coffee’s benefit is due in part to beneficial antioxidants and in part due to caffeine, which increases your body’s sensitivity to insulin, reducing inflammation – a risk factor for cancer and other chronic diseases. Coffee drinking has long been viewed as more of a vice or a crutch to get a quick energy boost to power through the day, but this view is now changing as the health benefits of coffee continue to be revealed. This is good news for those of you who sip on a cup of joe in the morning, as it turns out this may be a quite healthy way to start your day. However, please remember that coffee is one of the most heavily pesticide sprayed crops in the world. If you drink it please be sure to get organic and ideally fair traded, This is less than 3% of all coffee. Black coffee contains low fat and calories. It is loaded with antioxidants properties and nutrition. It helps to boost your physical stamina.

Reduces risk of cancer

Cancer has become one of the biggest killers in today’s world. The compound in coffee helps in preventing certain types of cancer such as liver, breast, colon and rectal cancer. Coffee reduces inflammation which is one of the main reasons behind the development of tumour. Among people with advanced (stage III) colon cancer, drinking four or more cups of caffeinated coffee daily lowered the risk of cancer recurrence or death during the study by 52 percent compared to those who drank no coffee. Drinking two or three cups per day was also beneficial, lowering the risk of recurrence or death by 31 percent. The researchers stressed that other caffeinated beverages, such as soda, did not have the same effect. No link was found between decaffeinated coffee and risk of colon cancer recurrence either. Further, a causal link was not found. This means it could simply be that coffee drinkers tend to follow a healthier overall lifestyle that’s contributing to the lower risk. However, the antioxidants and other beneficial plant compounds in coffee have been linked to a lower chronic disease risk before. In fact, coffee has been linked to a lower risk type 2 diabetes as well, a condition known to increase the risk of colon cancer. It’s likely that compounds in coffee may lower the risk of multiple chronic diseases via similar pathways. As reported by the New York Times: “The researchers’ hypothesis is that the factors that increase risk for Type 2 diabetes, such as obesity, a sedentary lifestyle, and high insulin levels, also drive colon cancer, Dr. [Charles S.] Fuchs [director of the Gastrointestinal Cancer Center at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute in Boston] said. And many studies have shown that coffee consumption is associated with a lower risk for Type 2 diabetes, a chronic illness that may increase the risk of colon cancer. ‘We believe that activating the energy pathways that contribute to heart disease and diabetes is also relevant for the proliferation of cancer cells,’ Dr. Fuchs said, while also stressing that more research was needed. The analysis determined the lowered risk associated with coffee was… because of the caffeine. One hypothesis is that caffeine increases the body’s sensitivity to insulin, so it requires less of the hormone. That, in turn, may reduce inflammation, which is a risk factor for diabetes and cancer.”

What Else Does the Research Say About Coffee and Cancer?

While a number of individual studies have suggested coffee consumption might increase your cancer risk, when multiple studies are analyzed, such as is the case with meta-analyses, the association disappears, and, in fact, becomes protective. For instance, one 2007 meta-analysis found an increase in consumption of two cups of coffee per day was associated with a 43 percent reduced risk of liver cancer – a finding that has been confirmed by more recent research. Not to mention, coffee appears to have additional benefits for liver health, slowing down the progression of liver disease to cirrhosis, improving responses in people with hepatitis C, and lowering the risk of death in people with cirrhosis. The potential benefit of coffee for liver health appears so strong that researchers have stated daily coffee consumption should be encouraged in people with chronic liver disease. Another meta-analysis involving 59 studies revealed an increase in consumption of one cup of coffee per day was associated with a 3 percent reduced risk of cancers. According to the researchers: “[C]offee drinking was associated with a reduced risk of bladder, breast, buccal and pharyngeal, colorectal, endometrial, esophageal, hepatocellular, leukemic, pancreatic, and prostate cancers.” There’s even research showing coffee consumption could lower your risk of skin cancer. Drinking four cups of caffeinated coffee daily might reduce your risk of melanoma, the most dangerous form of skin cancer. According to researchers: “[C]offee constituents suppress UVB-induced skin carcinogenesis, induce cell apoptosis, protect against oxidative stress and DNA damage, reduce inflammation in epidermal cells, and inhibit changes in DNA methylation.” Women who consumed more than three cups of coffee a day had a significantly lower risk of basal cell carcinoma (non-melanoma skin cancer) than those who consumed less than one cup per month.

Roasted Coffee Contains More Than 1,000 Compounds, Many of Which May Help Fight Cancer

Coffee has multiple potential anti-cancer pathways. As mentioned, caffeine is one of them, as its been shown to both stimulate and suppress tumors depending on the cancer and when it’s administered. Polyphenols in coffee, such as lignan phytoestrogens, flavonoids, and polyphenols are also known to have anti-cancer properties, as does caffeic acid, which inactivates several pathways involved in the development of tumors – including cell cycle regulation, inflammatory and stress response, and apoptosis. Researchers noted in the journal BMC Cancer: “There are two specific diterpenes in coffee, cafestol and kahweal, which produce biological effects compatible with anti-carcinogenic properties, including the induction of phase II enzymes involved in carcinogen detoxification, specific inhibition of the activity of phase I enzyme responsible for carcinogen activation, and stimulation of intracellular antioxidant defense mechanisms. Coffee is also a major source of the chlorogenic acid that contributes to its antioxidant effect. Intake of chlorogenic acid has been shown to reduce glucose concentrations in rats and intake of quinides, degradation products of chlorogenic acid, increases insulin sensitivity. Chronic hyperinsulinemia and insulin resistance are confirmed markers of high risk for some cancer sites.”

Makes you age gracefully

Having black coffee without sugar keeps your mind and body young. Black coffee also helps in preventing Parkinson’s disease by boosting the dopamine levels in the body.

Lower the tendency of premature death

Research published in the New England Journal of Medicine has even shown that coffee consumption is inversely associated with premature death. The more coffee drank, the lower the risk of death became, including deaths from heart disease, respiratory disease, stroke, injuries and accidents, diabetes, and infections.

It boosts memory

Increasing age leads to decreased cognitive skills and increased risk of Dementia, Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s disease. Having black coffee in the morning enhances the brain function. Black coffee helps the brain to stay active and thus helps in boosting the memory power. It also keeps the nerves active which in turn keeps dementia at bay. Studies say regular consumption of black coffee reduces risk of Alzheimer’s by 65 per cent and Parkinson’s by 60 per cent.

Improves performance during workout

One of the biggest and best benefits of black coffee is that it drastically improves your physical performance and helps you to give your 100 per cent during a workout session. This is the reason why your gym trainer asks you to have black coffee before you come for workout. It works by increasing Epinephrine (Adrenaline) levels in the blood, which prepares the body for intense physical exertion. It also breaks down stored body fat and releases fat cells into the blood stream in the form of free fatty acids which can be used as fuel for strenuous physical activities.

Beneficial for liver

Liver is one of the most vital organs of our body as it performs so many important functions. And did you know your liver loves black coffee? Black coffee helps prevent liver cancer, hepatitis, fatty liver disease and alcoholic cirrhosis. People who drink 4 or more cups of black coffee everyday have 80 per cent lower chances of developing any liver disease. Coffee helps by lowering the level of harmful liver enzymes in the blood.

Makes you intelligent

Coffee has a psychoactive stimulant which when reacts with the body, has the ability to improve energy, mood, cognitive functioning and thus makes you smart over a period of time.

Cleanses your stomach

Coffee is a diuretic beverage thus it makes you want to urinate often. So, that is why when you drink black coffee without sugar, all the toxins and bacteria are flushed out easily in the form of urine. This helps to clean your stomach.

Helps in weight loss

Black coffee helps in rapid weight loss by making you work out more if you have it 30 minutes before you hit the gym. Black coffee helps to boost metabolism by approximately 50 percent. It also burns the fat in the tummy since it is a fat burning beverage. It also stimulates the nervous system which signals the body to break down the fat cells and use them as a source of energy as opposed to glycogen.

Improves cardiovascular health

Though drinking black coffee on a regular basis increases the blood pressure temporarily but this effect diminishes over time. Drinking 1 -2 cups of black coffee everyday reduces the risk of cardiovascular diseases including stroke. Black coffee also reduces the inflammation level in the body.

Powerhouse of antioxidants

Black coffee is the powerhouse of antioxidants. Black coffee contains Vitamin B2, B3, B5, Manganese, potassium and magnesium.

Coffee Is the Number One Source of Antioxidants in the US. Another reason why coffee may have such dramatic effects on Americans’ health is because it is the number one source of antioxidants in the US diet. The research, which was presented at the 230th national meeting of the American Chemical Society, showed that Americans get more antioxidants from drinking coffee than from any other dietary source, with researchers noting “nothing else even comes close.” Examples of the antioxidants in coffee include significant amounts of hydrocinnamic acid and polyphenols. Antioxidants are nature's way of providing your cells with adequate defense against attack by reactive oxygen species (ROS) or free radicals. Free radicals are a type of a highly reactive metabolite that is naturally produced by your body as a result of normal metabolism and energy production. They are your natural biological response to environmental toxins like cigarette smoke, sunlight, chemicals, cosmic, and manmade radiation, and are even a key feature of pharmaceutical drugs. Your body also produces free radicals when you exercise and when you have inflammation anywhere in your body. As long as you have these important micronutrients, your body will be able to resist aging caused by your everyday exposure to pollutants. If you don't have an adequate supply of antioxidants to help squelch free radicals, then you can be at risk of oxidative stress, which leads to accelerated tissue and organ damage. While fruits, such as berries, and vegetables are ideal sources of antioxidants, many Americans don’t eat the recommended amounts each day. This is why coffee, which is consumed widely on a daily basis, represents such a large dietary share of antioxidants. If you’re not a coffee drinker, you can easily boost your antioxidant intake by eating fresh produce – and even if you do drink coffee, getting your antioxidants from a wide variety of sources is still important.

Decreases diabetes risk

Drinking black coffee daily helps to reduce the risk of diabetes which in later age can lead to organ damage and heart diseases. It was seen people who drank 2 or less cups of coffee had increased risk of diabetes. Coffee helps in controlling diabetes by increasing insulin production. Both caffeinated and decaffeinated coffee help in prevention of diabetes.

Makes you happy

Drinking black coffee improves your mood and thus makes you happy. It is also one of the best remedies to fight depression. Have 2 cups of black coffee every day to keep depression at bay.

Reduces stress and depression

Too much work pressure and tension can lead to depression and stress which in turn can cause many serious health issues. But having a black cup of coffee when you feel tensed or low can boost your mood instantly and make things better. Coffee stimulates the central nervous system and increases the production of dopamine, serotonin, and noradrenaline, important neurotransmitters that elevate the mood.

Protects against gout

Research shows people who drank more than 4 cups of black coffee has 57 per cent reduced risk of gout. The powerful antioxidants present in coffee reduces the risk of developing gout by decreasing the level of insulin and uric acid in the body. Even if you have gout, it helps to relieve its symptoms.

The Benefits of Coffee: From Your Heart to Your Brain

The benefits of coffee are becoming so well established that, for the first time, a government advisory committee included a mention of caffeine in its recommendations for the 2015 edition of Dietary Guidelines for Americans. The report said Americans could safely consume up to five cups of coffee a day, or approximately 400 milligrams (mg) of caffeine, with no detrimental effects. The recommendation was based on an evaluation of multiple meta-analyses and other studies evaluating the link between coffee and chronic diseases, including cancer, type 2 diabetes, heart disease, Parkinson’s, and Alzheimer’s. Here’s a sampling of what the research shows:

Heart Health

In a study of more than 25,000 people, those who drank a moderate amount of coffee – defined as three to five cups daily – were less likely to have calcium deposits in their coronary arteries than those who drank no coffee or more coffee daily. A large part of arterial plaque consists of calcium deposits (atherosclerosis), hence the term "hardening of the arteries." Coronary artery calcium can be a significant predictor of future heart disease risk. In addition, one study showed moderate coffee drinking reduces your chances of being hospitalized for heart rhythm problems. Another study found it may trigger a 30 percent increase in blood flow in your small blood vessels, which might take some strain off your heart. Another study, a meta-analysis that included data from 11 studies and nearly 480,000 people found drinking two to six cups of coffee a day was associated with a lower risk of stroke.

Multiple Sclerosis and Parkinson’s Disease

Drinking four to six cups of coffee a day is associated with a lower risk of multiple sclerosis, as is drinking a high amount of coffee over five to 10 years. According to researchers, “Caffeine has neuroprotective properties and seems to suppress the production of pro-inflammatory cytokines.” Higher coffee and caffeine intake are also associated with a lower risk of Parkinson’s disease.

Dementia

Caffeine promotes production of the neurotransmitters serotonin, dopamine, and noradrenaline, and triggers the release of brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF), which activates brain stem cells to convert into new neurons, thereby improving your brain health. Among people with mild cognitive impairment (MCI), those with higher blood levels of caffeine (due to coffee consumption) were less likely to progress to full-blown dementia. “Caffeine/coffee intake is associated with a reduced risk of dementia or delayed onset, particularly for those who already have MCI,” the researchers said.
