ONE MILE AT A TIME

HELLO, TO ALL THE READERS!

IMG_20171109_193656_759

It’s actually great when you meet a person with the same thought process and vision. It was great working and discussing ideas with you. Naivedya Naithani, who is the guest blogger for today wants to share something with you. So, let’s get started!

ONE MILE AT A TIME – will it be enough to reach the destination you have chosen? Walking just a mile sounds so low, I mean who doesn’t want to have success and wealth in a short time span? But, My friend, there will be challenges in front of you, but believe me, the distance between where you are and where you want to be is not that great enough. You will reach where you have always wanted to be but travel only “one mile at a time”. Things will distract you, will try to keep you off the track, shortcuts may come in front of you but you have to keep going in spite of what may come next in your path.  You just got to believe in yourself and move step by step, just like the stairs. Disbalance can get you down to the point from where you have actually started. Are you ready for the challenge? Will you be able to make it to the last? Ask yourself!

ONE MILE COVERED IS ONE MILE LESS LEFT TO BE COVERED!

Road (life) is full of milestones (accomplishments), hoardings (directions) and if one figure out them well, it’s very easy to reach your destination (dream).  It doesn’t matter how fast you travel but what matters is how far you travel. Running too fast can thrash you down, running too slow can lag you behind. Maintain your speed depending on the circumstance, and accordingly, implement your decisions. 

To travel far you need to inspect at the regular interval, the condition of your car (life) and carry Stepney (solution) for a Flat tyre (problem).  It’s these small things that help you maintain the pace, but at the end, it’s very important to complete the mile, look back to analyse how much you have covered till now.

Here’s one tip I want to share with you guys! Have you heard of the term ‘To do list’?

Yes, writing your To-do list sounds pretty straightforward but it is a list of things you want to accomplish in a given week or month and I actually find it very helpful. On your way to success, these small things have to be taken care of. 

  • Believe in writing it the night before as you can hit the ground hard, the next morning. Writing down the things actually, works more than we can ever think.
  • Qualify the content – the things you want to do and the ones you don’t want to.
  • Maintain your time estimates. 
  • Use sections and revaluate at the end. 

Till then, keep working on yourselves. Feed yourself with some good stuff and create your own reality. Do what excites you but, never stop!

I just want to conclude by saying – Don’t chase love, money or success. Believe in becoming the best version of yourselves and those things will chase you. See you in the next one. 

I BELIEVE IN YOU!

 

SUCCESS IN SEVEN WORDS

If I ask you to sum up all that happened in your life in just six words, what do you think those words will be? Are you capable enough to define them in just six words?

Firstly, this blog post is for all those who find happiness and a sense of satisfaction in working hard. If you’re looking at improving your insights over and above the hard work that you put in, then you probably will gain substantially from this post. Being an entrepreneur, I have seen people falling hard, stagnate, and some even at their worst stage. For a while, I just had a thought and tried figuring out what actually makes people successful and soon I realised that there is no cookie-cutter approach to being successful.

 

 

Trust me, It’s not that tougher as you think. Just a few behaviour changes, some management methods and perhaps a combination of both of them can lead you to your destination.

Success in Seven Words

Is it really true? Here, in this post, I have tried to reproduce connections for your benefit, hopefully, which will make you think better. Let’s find out!

  • See your Goal –

You cannot just expect yourself to reach where you have always wanted to, without having any vision. Like I always say, just sitting there and thinking will not turn that one rupee into those million dollars you have been wishing for. Go out there, express yourself and do something. Arpit, what’s your biggest resource? Your brain. Extract out the information and write down on a piece of paper and start implementing them in sections. The easier you take things, the better will be the flow.

  • Understand the obstacles –

The one who understands his circumstances well, the one who can easily understand his obstacle well will always stand with a head held high and you know why? Some people see obstacles as a puzzle to solve. Some see obstacles as an opportunity to grow. Others see obstacles as threats. Still, others see obstacles as meaning they cannot succeed. Your view of barriers to achieving your goals affects how you react.

  • Create a positive mental picture –

Trust me, our vision is just a series of mental pictures. These pictures are stored as our version of “reality.” We did not intentionally put these pictures in our minds, they were accumulated by where we lived, who we are around and our family values. Try to make them as beautiful as you can and the next step is just your hard work. Are you ready for it?

  • Clear your mind of self-doubt –

Doubting your potential, doubting your inner self will not get you anywhere. It’s worth repeating: self-doubt must be examined if it prevents you from living an enriching life. Cut the negativity within you and shift your mind towards the world full of positivity.

To overcome self-doubt requires affirmative action while being attentive to the inner critic — that is, you take action in spite of the doubt.

  • Embrace the challenge –

Challenges reveal our limitations and strengths at the same time. We are human. We are finite. We are limited. We don’t know everything. And certainly cannot do everything. Challenges offer us a platform to rise above the natural and connect with the Supernatural. Take up the opportunity, analyse the condition of the pitch, analyse the requirement and then play your shot. Don’t panic, the ball will definitely come on to you, you just got to pay attention and take up the challenge with your open arms.

  • Stay on track –

You and only you know, what you’re capable of doing. Nurture your craft well and it will pay you off later in your life. Distractions can get you off but you just have to make sure to stick your leg on the path you have chosen. Focus on fewer goals, plan ahead of your time ( to some extent ), set milestones and don’t forget to track your progress.

  • Show the world you can do it! – 

It’s the right time to step forward and choose your own way. Show them what you’re capable of producing but don’t forget to keep away from people who try to belittle you or your ambitions. Small people tend to do that, but the really great one will make you feel that you, too, can become great.

So, as the letters are highlighted above, you can easily make out how easy getting to success is provided with your consistent efforts to make that possible.

 

 

Don’t downgrade your dreams to match your reality. Upgrade your faith to match your vision.

I hope you had a good time reading this one. Will see you in the next article!

Live Life On Your Terms!

The life of an entrepreneur just exists between the fine line of being crazy and genius at the same time. In order to be able to live on your own terms, you will have to first align yourself with the goal you’re currently working on, swim upstream, become aware, and not give a shit about what others think as criticism can actually affect the mindset which can lead to a negative impact on your life. The one who understands the circumstances, the one who remembers how hard he/she has fought to be at the position they are currently on, and still stood there after all the grinding, are actually winners. It will always be the hardest times that will make you who you’re today.

Here are just a few quick reminders that can help you in your quest to make your own kind of music.

  • Think about yourself – 

Considering yourself on the primary spot is necessary as you’re the one who’ll be going to take the lead further. On every step, keep asking yourself the same question, why me? Question everything. If you accept everything you are told you will be manipulated. Blind trust has caused the world’s greatest miseries. Question the outer world as well as examine your own conscious thoughts and feelings.

  • Don’t care so much what others will think – 

Caring so much about others can what make your decisions, imperfect. There is no truth, only perceptions. Block those illusions, only what you think of yourself matters. Work on yourself, for yourself and by yourself. Things will affect only if you allow them to invade. Criticism will be shown at each and every area of your life and that’s where your main job has to be constantly thriving to attain what you have always dreamt of.

  • Find out what matters the most to you! –

If you’re smart enough to channelise your priorities in life, trust me no one can stop you to reach where you have always wanted to. Channelising ourself has to be the most overlooked factor in our lifestyle and that’s where many of us struggle to recognize our strengths. Call it your purpose, your calling or just that what ticks the box for you but please don’t settle. The best resource all you have now is ‘Time’. 

My favourite thing in life doesn’t cost any money. It’s really clear that the most important and precious resource all we have is time!

  • Never give up control – 

Take charge in every area of your life. Know what you want. Take control. There’s a world of difference between proactive living and reactive drifting. Don’t try to be perfect, just believe in getting better and smarter than what you were yesterday. Never stop learning!

Hire Character, Train Skill!

  • Take responsibility for your own happiness – 

Don’t give your happiness and self-worth out of hands.  See yourself as the most important person in your life. This way, by saying I love you to someone else, you are giving something truly valuable instead of just wanting them to fill a gap in your dignity.

Happiness is an inside job. Don’t assign anyone else that much power over your life.

  • Choose your own path – 

Road (life) is full of milestones (accomplishments), hoardings (directions) and if one figure out them well, it’s very easy to reach your destination (dream).  It doesn’t matter how fast you travel but what matters is how far you travel. Running too fast can thrash you down, running too slow can lag you behind. Maintain your speed depending on the circumstance, and accordingly, implement your decisions.

That’s all for today. I just want to end this with a note for you all!

Surround yourself with five types of people;  the inspired, the passionate, the motivated, the grateful and the open-minded.  How do you find someone who encourages your growth, invests in you, supports your vision, shows you the potential you don’t see in yourself and falls in love with you daily?

Start by becoming that person for yourself!

Venture Down A New Path

It baffles me every time when someone asks me how to do something, gets the perfect answer to it and does nothing. A great man has said – If you put limits on everything you do, physical or anything else, it will spread to work and your life. There are no limits, only plateaus. You must not stay there and try to go beyond them. But you must be wondering how one can change everything in a go and switch to a completely different path in a moment?

Venture Down A New Path

The process of finding a new path is necessary if you’re too attached to the older one and have that fear of failing there. So, venture down a new path, a path which is completely unknown to you but your heart still has that urge for audacity and travel. If you’re on your way to find a new path, you should always have these points in mind before starting your journey and these are –

  • Be kind and compassionate
  • Work hard as hell in whatever way you choose.
  • Take breaks and appreciate life and the universe.

The difficulty of finding yet alone path was brought to mind when I was in my Class 12th. Seriously lost, had no idea, had no resources but yet had that belief which actually worked for me a 1000 times more it could ever have. The moment you have a mindset shift is exactly the same moment which can turn your life upside down as you move ahead. That was the same time, I started venturing down something big, unaware where it may take me but had that confidence of risking everything which everyone doesn’t have.

It made me think, isn’t this sometimes the label we give ourselves when we’re on a path that isn’t right or isn’t working and all we choose is to keep quitting?

Trust me, I have scrambled down the maze to get out. No one likes the feeling of hitting hard against the walls, but if you have that courage to stand in front of your problems, you will definitely shape and sculpt the dream you have always wanted to live and that’s where the winners survive. Not having a plan for what we want in life can lead to low motivation and a sense of purposelessness.

How To Find The Right Direction In Life

Underpinning the struggle that many of us have with venturing or changing a path is due to fear of failure. If you don’t choose if you can’t fail but you cannot succeed either. So, the question is how do we move past the fear of failure?

  • STOP OVERTHINKING – So much of our stress and anxiety about the future stems from all the analysis and thinking we do as adults. We ask ourselves all sorts of questions. I recall countless nights lying awake, entertaining ideas, and wrestling with my soul. I tried so hard to figure out where I would end up that I often felt defeated before I even began and that actually burnt me down from within. Thinking about what is required and what is beneficial for you will help to open the mind up to the possibilities of today.

 

  • TRY ANYTHING BUT DO SOMETHING – The no.1 rule if you’re on your way to find a new path has to be doing something which can yield value in your life when you look ahead for the next 5 years. When you take action and start doing things, you begin to feel better almost immediately. by trying, moving, asking, engaging, experimenting, and walking forward, you are one step further than where you were yesterday. And you just never know where that one step will lead you.

 

  • FOLLOW YOUR INNER VOICE – Intuition has always played the most decisive role in the making or breaking of any individual. It’s the intuition which can lead you to the road you may not even think of but the only condition lies is the ability of a person to trust upon his gut feelings and accordingly produce the desired action. The one who knows how to trust his intuition will surely never fail in his life and will always be on the winning end and the one, ignoring will have to face the consequences later in their life.

Just be grateful for where you’re and excited about where you’re going. You are the books you read, the movies you watch, the music you listen to, the people you spend time with. Choose wisely what you feed your mind and that’s what can shape you in a long run.

That’s all for today. I hope you had a great time reading this article. Do give it a star if you find it worth and helpful. Thank you to each and every one of you, for constantly loving my blogs and hereby, I want to announce that my website has reached a milestone of 3k views. Cheers!

Signing off from the today’s article. Have a great weekend y’all.

Finding your Dream Job!

Hey there, my lovely people!

Trust me, we all want a dream job, just like finding that one great love but believe me it’s a goal that mentally everyone has. Do you remember being 18 and worrying that you didn’t have an answer when someone asked you, what do you want from your life or to be precise, what are you planning to do with your life?

Finding your dream has to be the most burdensome and contrary practice and that’s the same reason why just at the start of this year I want to help you out so that you can actually create a better vision and work accordingly without even wasting a single day.

All the energy, passion and vitality you are looking for in your life will appear when you actually start doing what you’re supposed to do. At some point, you’ve got to step out, change your circumstances and make some moves which are vital for your performance.

I do go with the fact that studying has to be the primary focus in our lives but for heaven’s sake, choose a CAREER that you enjoy. Trust me, I’ve chosen a career that I actually ADORE, followed my passion for writing and I believe, I’m doing pretty well by now.  I wake up with gratitude in my heart, fire in my belly and a big fat smile on my face because following your passion and working on it just sounds so easy but when you actually get on the field, life does offer you challenges but once you’re set, trust me nobody can stop you. 

If you’re someone who has a clear-cut passion outside your books, mark my words, make a CAREER out of it. Your parents will never understand that’s okay because they grew up when the job opportunities were less, career options were limited. In 2018, you have million other opportunities, the freedom to choose a CAREER that you love and not like. If you’re young and trying to figure out your own career path, remember this one thing – we live in a time where we can earn even from our hobbies. 

Not everyone wants to be an engineer, a doctor, an architect or whatever. Working hard is not good enough if you’re on your way to find your dream job. Working smartly and being tactically strong is what you need to have and trust me, many of us have overlooked this area in our lives. It’s the time to change the habitual routines, take that risk, if it pays off you’ll be jumping into the best phase of your life.

Here are some points you need to have in your mind in order to land up on your dream job –

  • Like I always say, Lead with your strengths and not your weaknesses.
  • Evaluate your past. This has to be the most important point as you need to know where have you been making mistakes and by evaluating yourself, you can work on so that the mistakes aren’t repeated again. Start with a new chapter but with few points in mind.
  • Interaction with people is what you need to have. Socialising is important.
  • Try something new each day and that’s how you can get to know yourself closely.
  • Consider the type of work environment where you will thrive. 
  • Do what makes you happy. Miracles always happen when you have a belief!

The person you’ll be in 5 years depends largely on the information you feed your mind today.

Whatever you may choose to do in your life, try always being productive in your work and don’t forget to add value in others. It’s a good practice!

See you in the next one!

In Hard Work is Happiness!

Howdy, People!

A Cold Monday evening, dark skies and my notepad – the three deadly combinations, which together can help me out in making up any content. Since everyone is home by now and relaxing in their blankets, I find this a good opportunity to make you learn ‘How one can be happy with his hard work’.

In Hard Work Is Happiness, Is that so? Let’s find out!

The ones who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones that do it.
Next time if someone looks at you like you’re crazy or mad when you’re sharing your ideas, vision, passion and is watching you delusionally, just smile.

You think you can change the world?

There is only one thing and that is you just have to accept that most of the people will think you’re crazy, wasting your time but believe me that’s okay. Not everyone has that vision to look beyond the extremities. It really doesn’t matter who doesn’t believe in you or in your dreams; you just have to be with those few crazy beings that do believe, want to join in with you and are prepared to risk it all and actually are eager to make a change with their hard work, a major difference and be a part of something that changes their game and hence, their mindset for once and for all.

Believe me, there will always be doubters, criticizers, haters but you’ve got to look past all that. Go out, express yourselves, build your dream, create your vision but yeah, make sure you just do not leave any debating left after the impact and the legacy you have created.

It’s okay to be crazy about your work. Trust me, if I’m asked whether I’m mad about my work or not? I can jump a thousand times and say yes because that is the only thing I look forward to when I get back home, that is the only thing which is making me a better human in the society, that is the only thing which is making me learn many a lesson of life.

Cheers, to the crazy ones that are you and me. It’s the time to get crazy for what you love to do the most, have that right focus, work hard and no one, I repeat, no one can drag you down. It’s the right time to work on your strengths and not your weaknesses.

It’s the right time to be somebody, nobody thought you could be. – Anonymous

Have a great week, my lovely people and don’t forget happiness is always nearly a rebound from your hard work. Keep up the good work!

That’s all for your Monday’s dose. I hope you will definitely make this week productive and prosperous.

See you in the next one!

From Selfishness To Self-Loved!

Howdy, Readers!

First of all, a very happy new year to each one of you. You people are just amazing and I wish this year may actually bring so many happy surprises and moments for you all.

If you’re actually adding value to others, believe me, you’re doing great enough since not many have that ability to do. So, focus on adding value in others.

It’s my last blog post of 2017 and hereby, I just want to say that ‘work with patience throughout the year 2018 and do reward yourself for every milestone you achieve’. Let’s start with the today’s discussion.

From Selfishness to Self-Loved. What does this phrase have to do with our lives?

As kids, we have always been pampered with so many gifts and since it is the human psychology ‘what is mine, is mine’, that selfish attitude starts from a very early age and over time, when one experiences the harsh realities of life, it gets clear that to be successful, to be out of the box, one has to love himself first. You must be wondering why loving yourself is necessary?

There is a very thin line between loving yourself and narcissism or what you call as selfishness. To be on the road to success, one should have these few points in mind.

  • When you love who you are, you accept who you are.
  • Loving yourself will definitely add confidence and approval.
  • To love yourself is to be charismatic.
  • When you start believing in “Give and Take”, the world around you changes.
  • Don’t forget to explore who you are and what are your capabilities.
  • Put yourself at the top of your To-do list every single day and the rest will fall into place!
  • Enjoy your own company.

Make yourself a priority once in a while. It’s not selfish, It’s necessary. 

Self-love actually makes you stronger and nothing in this world can get you down, don’t be scared to love yourself on first priority, but trust me you just have to feel your instincts and the world will actually look beautiful, from outside as well as from inside.

I hope you get the best out of yourself in 2018 and don’t forget to thank 2017 for all the lessons it has taught you. Just believe in yourself and make 2018, a year overflowing with abundance, new blessings, life-changing opportunities and stand with people who can bring out the best in you. Make your intentions very clear and committ yourself and your entire being to the outcome you truly desire.

Nothing really works if you don’t put in the work.

See you in the next blog, my lovely people!

A Happy New Year To Everyone!

Mindset is everything!

Howdy, Readers!

Before starting up with anything I just want to thank each one of you for loving me and my post this much that I have reached a milestone of 1k views. I know this milestone is not that big enough but this feeling is amazing! Thank you so much for giving me such a wonderful surprise in such a short time span. You people are amazing!

Mindset-is-Everything

MINDSET IS EVERYTHING IN DRIVING TO YOUR SUCCESS!

It’s all about our mindset and to be precise, what I believe is that the ‘mindset’ has a key role in our lives, our experiences, everything we do, everyone we meet and what not. But at the end of the day, all we have is ‘ourselves’. It’s in our hands how we choose to see the world, everything and everyone around us. Every second of every minute of every hour of every day and to the rest of our lives, we do have the opportunity to create something big out of this life, to give our lives a meaning out of all the emotions we go through.

Whether you like it or not but each one of us does fall into either of the category – Positive or negative correlation and you know what? Sometimes, we aren’t even aware of in which category do we actually lie. Readers, what category do you think you belong to, huh?

Positive Mindset  – You people are actually going great but possessing a strong powerful positive mindset, you just need to have one simple mental adjustment. Instead, of focussing over what you can’t change, just focus on all those things that you can change. Focus on your opportunities rather than your problems.

Always say this to yourself, yes it may be difficult but well, it’s not impossible. So, to all the readers, yes I believe in you!

Negative MindsetIt has been said well that ‘You cannot live a positive life with your brain full of negativity’. Shrug it off, let it go and move on. Don’t let a bad yesterday dictate a bad tomorrow. You just have to stop thinking in extreme, as this demon is affecting you more than anyone. Stop generalizing the negative in you. Is your negative thinking making it harder than it needs to be? It’s the time, step out and maximise the positivity in you. Read good books, hang out with your friends, spend some quality time with your parents and the most important thing, try as much as you can to be around the children or play with them. They are the happiest and the most cheerful positive beings!

I hope this was effective and may influence some of you to change into a positive being. I just want to conclude here by saying that-

Fame or integrity: Which is more important?

Money or happiness: Which is more valuable?

Sucess or failure: Which is more destructive?

Be content with what you have, rejoice in the way things are. When you realize there is nothing lacking, the whole world belongs to you! 

See you in the next one, people!

Walk in Courage!

So, another week. Another day. And I’m back here for you guys with another write up on another important discussion. So, you guys must be thinking what next I’m going to write for you people. Is it? Just like you people, even I get excited when it comes to writing the content every week.

WALK IN COURAGE. What actually does that mean? 

textgram_1510934490

Why do we get discouraged? Why do we feel alone and lost when everything is going fine? Have you ever experienced that anxiety running down your nerves, when you’re lagging behind on anything? Do you feel something relatable? Do you? It’s just that we see the problems and our challenges bigger and stronger than us, ultimately what discourages us and we feel like quitting.

Every time you compare the problem with yourself, nothing, but only heart will bear the burden of disappointments, start comparing your problems with your god, courage will fill in your heart and life will get so easy and serene. Is it so difficult to walk now?

According to you, what is actually meant by courage? Courageous are those who have the will to leave their bad past behind and work for their good one. For me courageous are those, who have fallen end number of times but still wish to get up and come back stronger, courageous are those who don’t wait for the critics to define them. They create their own definition. Knowing when to walk away is what I call as wisdom, being able to walk is what I call as courage and walking with your head held high is what I define as dignity.

Believe me, it’s not always the joy ride it seems. No journey is ever smooth but it’s the courage which may change our serious incidents into life-changing experiences and like I’ll always say, never stop whatever may happen next. The moment you stop is the same moment you may lag behind. It’s just your road, check on the milestones, drive and just enjoy your ride. Make it worthwhile! 

See you in the next one, people!

I BELIEVE IN YOU!

Fall down 7, Stand 8th!

textgram_1509458499

Hello People! How’re you guys doing up? I hope everyone is doing fine and is in a good state. What are your plans for the week, huh? With every post, my bonding with you guys is getting stronger and stronger and I’m really happy about this. :’)

“Fall down 7, Stand 8th” is a Chinese proverb which I feel is the most appropriate and relatable when it comes down to our lives. Since, we all are adults and mature enough, I believe, distraction has been one of the most disastrous factor effecting the psyche as well as the performance.

So, the blog titled “FALL DOWN 7, STAND 8TH” is a message to all those who have been performing low till now and possess that ‘never giving up’ attitude in their lives. Certainly, Circumstances do create a change in everyone’s life. At one point, you feel to be the happiest person alive and the very next moment, you’re tired of everything and see yourself in the most loneliest place. That’s what life is all about – Up streams and down streams.. Some overcome their bad phase very quickly and the other end up struggling and fighting with themselves.

You just have to believe in the fact that, you don’t have to wait for anything to affect you or destroy you. I can understand what it feels like ‘being in the ocean of sorrows’ and having no one to help you in it but my friend, It’s totally your battle with yourself.  You’ll not be able to start the next chapter of your life if you’ll keep revising the older one. So, made your decision now? Yes, it is the right time to start and move on to better things.

A WORD FROM A WRITER,

I have seen myself weak and lost at the same time. Fell several times. I have made mistakes, encountered anxiety attacks and what not. Seen myself in the most loneliest times and yes, I have failed. I have lost many precious things which I thought would last a forever, but now where I’m? Where am I heading upto?

Felt, nothing would be easy in my life and but you know what kept me going? My self belief and the positive attitude I had on my life. This story is not only mine but each one of us silently facing all the hardships with a pleasant smile hiding away the fears behind. It isn’t easy to battle from yourself but I promise, there will come a day in your life when everything will be changed and that happiness in the end, will be worth everything.

Phases, come and go.. But, at the end, you need both the sun and the rain to make it’s colors appear.  So, what are you thinking  up now? Start where you are, use what you have and do what you can, but don’t give up. You’re not a coward. You’re a fighter and challenge yourself, make your move and CONQUER! Get up and rise.

I BELIEVE IN YOU!
