Namaste, Welcome to SAM-VAD (Together In Conversation).I am Ranjini Rao. Dear listeners I do hope and pray that all of you are in the pink of health. Today I bring before you an excerpt from the book “The Art of Possibility” co-authored by Benjamin Zander and Rosemund Stone Zander.



You can buy your copy from any of the bookstores near you or via any on-line portal selling books or also by clicking the following link:









Benjamin Zander is an English Conductor who is currently the musical director of The Boston Philharmonic Orchestra and The Boston Philharmonic Youth Orchestra.



Rosemund Zander is a pioneer in the field of leadership and relationship. She is a family therapist and an executive coach.



And I now present the excerpt which begins with a short story followed by the Possibility Premise.



Short Story



A shoe factory sends 2 marketing scouts to a region in Africa to study the prospects for expanding business. One sends back a telegram saying SITUATION HOPELESS STOP NO ONE WEARS SHOES.



The other writes back triumphantly GLORIOUS BUSINESS OPPORTUNITY STOP THEY HAVE NO SHOES.





And now the ‘Possibility Premise’:



Our premise is that many of the circumstances that seem to block us in our daily lives may only appear to do so; based on a framework of assumptions we carry with us. Draw a different frame around the same set of circumstances and new pathways come into view. Find the right framework and extraordinary accomplishment becomes an everyday experience.



Thank you everyone for taking timeout and listening to the podcast. If you have not subscribed to it do subscribe and if you can see the bell icon click on it so that you can be notified when a new episode is uploaded. Now before I end this podcast I would like to draw your attention to these wise words.



Let us remember:



Our life experience would ultimately amount to whatever we had paid attention to. Attention: is important and most of the times we are so indifferent to it. It is as fundamental as food; and we go blundering about, seeking ways to assuage the craving, instead of learning how to provide ourselves with what we need, sensibly and calmly. We feed the hunger blindly. Once the mechanism is brought to our attention and we begin to study it, it is as if a veil has been stripped off ordinary life, and we become freer in our action and choices.



Have a good day!
