Success is never a one step thing. It comes with the ability to solve unforeseen problems at every step. When you cross a barrier you have reasons to celebrate but be watchful of a bigger hurdle. The moment you cross it, something else will come up. And the cycle will never end. Each incremental challenge will require even more effort. The past glory will always seem insignificant when you are in pursuit of a bigger goal. And that’s what life is all about.
There are two ways to approach an issue when you get stuck. How it can’t be done and how can it be done. The response you choose will define where you reach in life. We all think we belong to the second group. It may not be true. One needs to be watchful. If your instant response is negative, that is who are you. If your approach is to solve the issue, you will be labelled as having a positive attitude. Even if you have not made the cut till now you can still change your habit by being conscious each time you have to make such choices. It’s never too late to become who you want to be.
With time we come to terms with truth, no matter how painful it was at the time it was revealed. It is the lies which hurt and haunt the most. If this is true with us then we ought not to speak lies and be truthful to others, no matter how difficult it could be. It might ruin relationships in the beginning but over time it will mend it too. A relationship based on false premise is anyways not worth it. It is the truth that can make a broken relationship stronger than ever before.
If something haunts you constantly and your mind tries to prove that you are not guilty, it means your heart has already convicted you. No amount of self convincing will free you for your entire life. While the reversal of your act may not be possible, you still have a window of self redemption. Accept to yourself and take onus of your actions. It will greatly reduce your guilt. Still better, apologize to people who were affected with your actions. It is your only chance to probably free you of your own wounds.
If you choose to be in pain all the time, the problem is with you and not the outside world. Being hurt a few times is natural and is actually good for leading a balanced emotional life. But if you have made it a habit to stay in misery all the time, you need to seriously mend your ways. When you regularly project other people, luck and circumstances as responsible for your situation, it becomes a habit. It then seems to be an easy way to shift the blame to something else. Choose happiness. Become self responsible. After all, no one is bothered with your false story all the time.
Nothing is permanent and all good things also comes to an end one day. Not because they can’t be continued but because change is inevitable. Sometimes, we are forced to change. Lucky are those who make the switch on their own, leaving behind the laurels and accolades. To venture into the unknown is never the risk. Sometimes, the biggest discoveries happen when we move out of our comfort zone. Holding on to our baggage slows us down. To embrace the new horizon, we must go out with open arms.
Human behavior is the very unpredictable. The same person who is known to be rational, tends to be very casual at times. This is because we are driven by emotions too. The thing is; even if you are a little expensive or someone else’s offering is a little superior to you, people still won’t leave you because of your honest approach. Because they feel comfortable with you. Now, this is irrational but true. There is a sixth sense in every person which has the power to identify your integrity and commitment. So, never be intimidated by the biggies in the business. You can make a mark too, just by being true to yourself and to the person whom you serve.
How we feel depends upon how we think. We attract things based on our thinking. As much as it sounds ridiculous, it does happen. It is also called the ‘law of attraction’. Whether we like it or not, we get drifted toward things that occupy our mind space. We think we are in control but slowly and slowly, our actions are driven by our thoughts over which we lose control. It is therefore important to think positive. Eliminate negative thoughts. The challenge is; a negative person doesn’t even realises his problem. It is best to train our mind to stay optimistic before the damage is done.
Anxiety prevails till we don’t know the outcome of a particular decision or event. If the outcome is good or manageable, we can focus on other things. If the result is bad, it troubles us a bit but anxiety reduces and we get involved in finding a solution. In certain situations where things go out of control, overtime we adjust and learn to cope with it. It is the suspense that kills us. It never ends. One or the other things keep us on our toes. The only way is to learn to handle anxiety. However, it is easier said than done. In most cases, anxiety is worse than the outcome.
