Overview

Just type the word stress in any internet search engine and it will throw up a million pieces of information on it and the harm it can cause. Mankind (and even animals and plants) has always been plagued by stress from ages. On our planet the number of reasons why people get stressed or agitated could run into thousands. For example, the modern crazy workplace is one of the single biggest sources of stress for employees and their families. A stressed out employee can not only cause problems for himself, but also cause various problems to all his family members. And you cannot simply ignore stress as it is a serious health matter and will deteriorate you with time. So what do you do? The common methods of stress reduction are attending mind-body workshops like meditation, yoga, going to a counselor, or taking some prescribed medicines, etc. But such methods take time, cost and effort. However, there is another stress management technique that is simple, cost-effective, non-medicinal and extremely powerful. And you don’t need any professional help to use this technique unless you are a severe medical case. This is the technique of regularly reading Inspirational quotes by famous personalities over the ages.

How will reading quotes help? It has often been observed that a short piercing sentence, a stinging insult, or a chance remark by someone can have a terrific impact on you than a long sermon or advice. For example, I remember reading a true story of a bankrupt businessman on his way to commit suicide suddenly stopped in his rogue pursuit by accidentally reading an inspirational quote on some billboard. So a famous quote actually saved his life by giving him a sudden dose of inspiration to continue with life no matter what. Such is the power of an inspirational quote. This inspirational effect is very similar to how a small pin can puncture a high pressure balloon or a car type. And most inspirational quotes are also short piercing sentences of wisdom that can puncture your high stress and change your life in an instant. It is like taking an aspirin for the tormented mind. So whenever you are feeling doubtful about your own abilities, when disappointments are staring at your face, and you don’t see any light at the end of the tunnel simply dive into some great quotes in this book, and you will begin to smile in the midst of overwhelming sorrow. And if you make a habit of reading inspirational quotes regularly you will experience a stark difference in the way you think, act and behave henceforth. Like tiny homeopathic medicines, these gems of wisdom can gradually make you calmer, handle criticism, understand mankind better and become well equipped to tackle life’s ups and downs.

But what is a mind candy? Instead of calling them inspirational quotes I call them as mind candies because they make your mind sweet, just like regular candies make your taste buds happy. Thousands of such literary gems have been stated by hundreds of famous personalities over the ages. This book contains a list of carefully selected mind candies to puncture your bad moods created for the usual reasons like hopelessness, fear of the future, insecurity, bad bosses, family and health troubles, city life, etc. Hope you will like them and more importantly read them regularly. Why read regularly? That is because stress is like dust and will invade your mind again and again, so it must be dusted again and again. So let us start.
