“Happiness is a choice. ‘Being Successful’ and ‘Feeling Successful’ are different”, Shri Gaurgopal Das

Udaipur: Shri Gaurgopal Das, motivational lecturer and lifestyle coach from ISKCON, visited Udaipur to interact with the employees of Hindustan Zinc.

“Life is like a mathematical equation. There is a constant and there is a variable. Happiness does not happen automatically in life. You have to choose it to feel it”, said Shri Gaurgopal Das Ji during his interaction with employees of Hindustan Zinc on 29th November 2017 at Hindustan Zinc Yashad Auditorium. Shri Gaurgopal Das was in Udaipur to deliver a lecture under the new initiative launched by Hindustan Zinc – “An Insight”.

His interaction focused on secrets to renew one’s energy and enthusiasm. He said, “In chasing professional success, one may have missed the key to satisfaction, peace and balance in life. Achievement is not the only parameter to judge success. It is not about ‘to have it’ but ‘to live it’”.

With spiritual humour, he emphasized on doing something you love, investing in interpersonal and spiritual time apart from the daily job. It will aid in consciously liking your life. Also, it is important to be thankful for what you have received and achieved in life by writing a gratitude journal.

“In the journey of life, there is birth and death; and in the middle there are challenges and turbulence but it depends on a person how he chooses to live and handle the situations as they come. One can be like a soda bottle which when shaken, gushes out with force or one can be like water in a bottle that remains calm and stable no matter how much it is shaken”, Shri Gaurgopal Das Ji described the way of living the life with this simple example.

Sunil Duggal, CEO of Hindustan Zinc said, “Shri Gaurgopal Das Ji has been very humble to visit Hindustan Zinc and address the employees. On behalf of Hindustan Zinc, I thank him for lending us his insights as to how to look at life and deal with problems while coming up with simple solutions. I also believe that we should take life as a privilege and an opportunity to do something bigger, beyond one’s own capacity.”

The interaction was reached out to more than 500 employees of Hindustan Zinc, where the employees of Head Office and the units joined to listen to the address of Shri Gaurgopal Das Ji.

Shri Gaurgopal Das Ji also participated in tree plantation along with CEO, Hindustan Zinc in Yashad Bhawan premises.

Pavan Kaushik, Head – Corporate Communication, Hindustan Zinc said, “Shri Gaurgopal Das Ji beautifully explained the difference between ‘being successful’ and ‘feeling successful’ and has enlightened us with the key to achieve happiness by focusing on the good things in life rather than dwelling upon the negatives.”

Shri Gaurgopal Das Ji has been addressing corporate firms & headquarters of Google, Sales Force, Infosys, Barclays, Bank of America, E&Y, Ford etc. along with TEDx, celebrities, corporate leaders, medical professionals and prestigious colleges in India & abroad. He has also addressed audience at the British Parliament in London. Author of three books, he has also been awarded Super Achiever Award by Rotary International in 2016 for outstanding contribution in field of spirituality and inspiration.
