When Someone Confides In You
When people confide in us and reveal secretive or private information to us, they trust us to maintain confidentiality. Do you recall the last time when your family member or friend shared a secret with you, and you revealed it to at least one other person? This habit puts our credibility and our relationships at risk.

"Power & Importance of Faith"
In the Bhagavad Gita, God instructs Arjuna to have complete faith in the knowledge he is being given through God himself... Have faith in YourSelf, and in God. The one who has faith, has total faith in the self and in the progress of the self. The one who has faith is always successful because he gives his best in everything he does. He is never deterred by obstacles but progresses constantly.
