Gurbaksh Chahal | We All Deserve Styrofoam Cups

"Leadership is not a rank. Leadership is a choice. It's the choice to look after the person to the left of you and the person to the right of you.” I heard a story about a former Under Secretary of Defense who gave a speech at a large conference. He took his place on the [...]

Gurbaksh Chahal | Max Ehrmann’s Desiderata

I ran across a prose poem that was written in 1927 by Max Ehrmann called "Desiderata." It's a beautiful piece of literature that I think we can relate to in all of our lives. Go placidly amid the noise and haste, and remember what peace there may be in silence. As far as possible without [...]

Gurbaksh Chahal | The Real Art of Success

It’s been a while since my last post. So, I wanted to make this to the point as we start the new year. I’m not going to tell you how to get rich. I’m not going to tell you how you are going to be a millionaire overnight. Nor, am I going to tell you [...]

Gurbaksh Chahal | The Most Beautiful People

“The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of those depths. Beautiful people don’t just happen.” People come in all shapes, sizes, forms and colors. Authenticity is hard to find these days. From the classic fake friend in [...]

Gurbaksh Chahal | Nothing is impossible, the word itself says “I’m possible.”

Audrey Hepburn said it best, “Nothing is impossible, the word itself says ‘I’m possible.” People used to say flying an airplane was impossible. Decades later, they had the same reaction to space travel. Almost every technological advancement was believed, at one point, to be impossible. But impossibility exists only when we believe it does. There [...]

Gurbaksh Chahal | Why Rejection is a Beautiful Thing

Whether its work, school or any kind of relationship, it can be frustrating when someone overlooks you and doesn’t give you a chance. Who is to blame for the lack of consideration? It doesn’t matter; if people are aloof to give you an explanation, they aren’t worth your time anyway. Here are a few more reasons you [...]

Gurbaksh Chahal | Is the glass half empty or half full?

A psychologist walked around a room while teaching stress management to an audience. As she raised a glass of water, everyone expected they’d be asked the “half empty or half full” question. Instead, with a smile on her face, she inquired: “How heavy is this glass of water?” Answers called out ranged from 8 oz. to [...]

Gurbaksh Chahal | “You can’t blame gravity for falling in love.”

Love has no boundaries. Neither does Gravity. They work hand in hand. So, that’s why Einstein’s quote is probably one of the most beautiful quotes to express this feeling; that we as humans crave for within ourselves, with others, and with the work we try to do. It’s a word with four characters in it [...]

Gurbaksh Chahal | If today was your last day, what would you do differently?

Life is the toughest sport. And, in this sport, I’ve realized in order for you to survive, become successful, and stay successful you must grow a very thick skin. Grow a thick skin—a very thick skin. People will question your ability to succeed, and the loudest among them might make you doubt your own talents, [...]
