Mrs. Dhawan said that happiness comes from our inner peace, so we should focus on ourselves instead of what others think for us. Growth is not the only evidence of life instead it depends upon the people to people what they think and perceive towards their life. Whether we are child or adult, we should take time to work on ourselves which gives us a sense of satisfaction, it helps us to grow in life feels Mrs. Dhawan.

According to her, we should take care of the body and soul at the same time by meditation and being aligned with our thoughts, because it is important to keep a balance between these to grow further. Life is not constant and not predictable but we can control our mind and thought to perform better in life emphasized Mrs. Sarika Dhawan. We should welcome all thoughts negative or positive. But we must learn that it is okay to have such thoughts, however not good to be stuck in a single emotion like sadness or anger etc. because it hurts a lot.

Parents should motivate, promote and encourage their children to do what they like to do; one should not judge them on the basis of peer’s comparison. Parents must spend time and help guide their children, as is the Indian philosophy. To try to change the mindset from negative to positive, it is not difficult but one must work it via meditation, self introspection, soul consciousness and spirituality. This will help one to work more energetically in a different way and to be happy in life said Mrs. Dhawan.
