In November 2006, when we launched the inaugural issue of Complete Wellbeing, we received mainly two kinds of responses. One was discouraging—it came from those who believed that such a magazine would have no potential and that it was too idealistic for the real world. The other response was enthusiastic—from people who were as excited as us, believed in the magazine and supported us both morally and in more tangible ways. Many of them even went out of their way to help us in whatever manner they could.
It is thanks to this second group that we have reached a milestone such as this one. 100 issues is a major achievement for a magazine that is not affiliated with any big media or publishing house. Such an accomplishment can come about only due to merit—and the belief of our well-wishers: advertisers and their agencies, authors and, of course, subscribers. In heartfelt appreciation, we dedicate this very special issue to these friends. Thank you for believing in Complete Wellbeing.
To commemorate the 100th issue, this month’s cover story is a mega feature that brings together some of the most powerful pieces of wisdom published across the past 99 issues. While putting together this compilation of 100 best ideas and thoughts, we were overwhelmed with the sheer scope and depth of the content we have published. It has been a privilege, to say the least, to have carried such transformative advice from some of the world’s most respected individuals. It covers all the significant aspects of life—from health and vitality to spirituality, and everything in between. We couldn’t include all the great ideas of course, but we have tried to put together a feature that is sure to inspire you towards living your best life.
Many of these insights may remind you of what you already know but have temporarily forgotten. A few of them may compel you think and reflect on your choices and actions. Others may trigger much-needed changes. Still others may strengthen your existing efforts, driving you to make further positive changes to your life and your world.
I believe that each of you will find your own personal connection with the ideas featured—and you will use them in your own unique way. But I am certain about this: there is enough inspiration in this special issue for everyone. And it’s not a one-time read either. You can keep coming back to it over and over again, whenever you feel like.
I would like to invite you to write to me about your experience of reading this issue, which is our labour of love. Share your thoughts and feelings, and also let me know what else you would like us to do—to make Complete Wellbeing come even closer to your heart.
Before I sign off, here’s a message I bring to you on behalf of my entire team: We love you all!
