Love yourself before you start spreading Love! #FreeHug #ShadowHugger

You're Unique!

If you're thinking that you're no match to someone, you already are! Do believe that everyone has a standard to deliver and do live up to yours!!! #GopiKaruna #BPositive


'Wisdom' does not have to depend on our age but by the "Experience" we have gained in life. 


There is nothing much better than a Hug from your loved ones, when you needed the most! #BearHugger #FreeHug #Love

Be a Trendsetter!

People will follow You, if you Lead them as an example or you will just be walking in front of them as many others do, without making any impact! Be a Trendsetter!!

Food for thought!

There is always good & bad in every aspect of life; Scoop the good and Scrap the rest to fill your life with colors!!! #BColorful

Lesson from OS upgrade!

As we grow, we discover different versions of behavior in handling a situation in personal/professional life. If we work on fixes in our earlier versions, we get better day by day!!!  #UpgradeYourself#BPositive #BBetterEveryday #BetterMatters

Good & Bad!

Do you agree? Things good or bad are enough told already; what we're doing now is to create our version of the existence and pump our-self and others surrounding us towards a world of self-satisfaction, happiness & positivity. #GopiKaruna

To-do or Wish?

Differences in my viewpoint: To-do list - you've to work on them and you'll not be efficient if you pile them up & Wish list - you can pile them and if you work for it, you'll be more effective in what you do!

Influence & Power!

The 'Influence' of Good & Bad will always be there around 'You' either you are alone or in groups but Good or Bad gets the 'Power' to influence based on the side you take!

Trial & Error!

Life is nothing but a trial & error at every instance and You will master your way, when you try to explore by being Yourself!

Lead from the front!

'Leading the way' is not about standing out as a leader in-front of the team but leaving the way in-front, showing the way ahead to explore and walking along with your team to 'Success'

Heights of 'Positivity'

In my perspective, You will be more effective to influence "Positivity" in any situation and/or into others when your mind does not even whisper "I am not thinking Negative". ‪#‎GopiKaruna‬

Are You a Creator?

Hum 'Positivity' in every situation to create vibrations around you forever just like an 'Echo'. Be a Positive 'Creator'!

Relax n Re-Charge!

Future... Present..Own it!

We always think we could be better at some instances in the present but there will be instances in the future to make us think we were better in the past. When you come across such moments, take some time to analyze what did you do to get better and strategize to build your own future. - Gopi

'LOVE' is "immensible"!!!

Do not create a benchmark or comparison for 'Love' with something you think is valuable/precious as 'Love' has no equivalent on this planet other than the words, actions, thoughts & feelings you have shared/expressed to your Loved ones. LOVE is simply & superbly "immensible"!!!

Lord Krishna & Buddha

Lord Krishna via 'Bhagavad Gita' says 'Man is made by his belief. As he believes, so he is' & Buddha says 'The mind is everything. What you think you become'. Words are different but the context is same so to realize that 'You' are responsible for your actions and thoughts in life. [Author: Gopi]

Which is your way?

Life treats us the same way as we treat it, so think positively and decide your way! [Author: Gopi]

Do not Assume!

From my standpoint, Wrong conclusions are made when we assume & Mistakes are made when we guess. So, let's communicate effectively and clarify our doubts before we start thinking! [Author: Gopi]

Life of Pi..

Life is like a journey with an untamed animal, it needs lots of patience and perseverance to tame the animal and reach your destination without you being its prey - my key takeaway from 'Life of Pi' [Author: Gopi]

Are you an Effective Communicator?

To be an 'Effective Communicator' make sure that you do not take ownership for what you haven't said and ensure that you standby for whatever you said [Author: Gopi]


Being 'Passionate' about what you know/do is a great thing until such time you believe in continuous learning through different sources and not block your wisdom by being proud of knowing everything. Always be mindful "Known is a Drop, Unknown is an Ocean" and it applies to anything in general. [Author: Gopi]

Choice of words: #1

Try to visualize your world without the words like 'Difficulties', 'Hurdles' or 'Frustrations' and replace them with "Challenges" and as I do believe you will also get the positivity to face those challenges rather crib or be concerned about them in your life. [Author: Gopi]

Question Mark ?

A Situation with a Question mark "?" is not focusing on whether you have or don't have a right solution/answer but to make you really think what could be the right one for You and those involved in that situation. [Author: Gopi]

What you have is a GIFT!

To realize what is a gift in your life, try to visualize you being away from what is close to your heart anything/everything in general and then even a minute with what you have along with those around you will definitely be the greatest gift you have ever imagined. [Author: Gopi]

Being kind, being humble, being courteous, being gentle may not be possible in all situations but I believe that taking the first step of being 'Human' is humanly possible. [Author: Gopi]

so called Experience!

Experience may be gained each day if your passion for your job does not change. If you loose your passion, you will not learn and if you do not learn there is nothing called Experience. [Author: Gopi]
