These days we have more & more
'Antony Robbins' clones in India
who jump up and down, shout at the top of their voice
exhort audience to have passion
wishing to draw it all out, this very moment!
These motivators automatically assume
that post lunch, people would be drowsing
and would most certainly not listen to them
so they direct, give orders to get up, do exercises
and get the blood flowing
a professional doctor wouldn't be impressed
after all, digestion is the priority
after a heavy, hearty meal!
With time, people may realize
that there is no need to look up to
US companies, business leaders
for blind aping! Embrace Bell curve
based appraisals when GE does
and throw it out the moment GE discards!
May realize that true motivation will emerge from the inside
with gentle prodding from the motivational speaker
or maybe even without his help
in quiet meditative, reflective moments...
