A trainee coach helps to broaden the vision and explore the client’s latent potential. “The simple yet pragmatic training modules catapult participants to achieve their desired goals and motivate them to become a better version of themselves,” she says, while stressing on the need to keep learning and innovating. “Remember the adage, ‘You stop growing when you stop learning’. It is imperative to look for a silver lining and embrace it!” she adds. For the uninitiated, it is important to keep in mind that a therapist is different from a life coach. While the therapist helps you handle problem areas, the life coach “helps you set your goals and function at an optimal level when you are already at the baseline.” Life coaching is future focused. c m y b Taxi driver held with heroin Ludhiana, October 10 Anti-narcotic cell of the Ludhiana police have nabbed a drug peddler and recovered 105 gram of heroin from his possession.

The Tribune, now published from Chandigarh, started publication on February 2, 1881, in Lahore (now in Pakistan). It was started by Sardar Dyal Singh Majithia, a public-spirited philanthropist, and is run by a trust comprising four eminent persons as trustees.
The Tribune, the largest selling daily in North India, publishes news and views without any bias or prejudice of any kind. Restraint and moderation, rather than agitational language and partisanship, are the hallmarks of the paper. It is an independent newspaper in the real sense of the term.
The English edition apart, the 133-year-old Tribune has two sister publications, Punjabi Tribune (in Punjabi) and Dainik Tribune (in Hindi).
