How To Make Your Weekends Extremely Productive!

Any real content creator on the grind knows that there really is no difference between a weekday and a weekend. It’s a job where you have to work at least 6 days a week, have to update yourself daily, and no excuses from running off from work. Well, that was just my story but trust me, if you’re loving the process, nothing is going to stop you from reaching your set goal.

 

 

Every day matters, and it’s up to you how you choose to make it productive and how seriously you’re actually taking your venture. It’s not easy to say NO to your Saturday festivities and force yourself to keep on making moves.

It’s not like I don’t enjoy or hang out on weekends, but the ones who know me well, do know me as a person who is going to complete his work first, irrespective of the time it is going to take and then move forward for the next activity. You know that’s how things should roll. Agree?

Writing this blog was more about observing my own behaviour towards weekends and other’s as well and trust me, this ended up being funny in most cases. Let me share some of the ways I have learned to make my Saturday grind added with more fun. Here I go!

 

 

  • REWARD YOURSELF – 

I’m a person who believes so much in preparing notes and reminders for almost every activity. I don’t know writing has always helped me in every possible way it can. You and only you know what all activities do you carry in a week so accordingly, prepare your TO-DO LIST! To-do list is actually fun if maintained properly. Make a schedule of how are you going to work this whole week.

 

 

Set a proper goal for a week and divide them into some few subgoals. At the end of the week, review your performance and accordingly, celebrate every new project you fulfil on time or before time. That’s how working should be processed.

 

 

  • TURN ON A SILENT MOVIE –

Turning on a silent movie can be a great kick as it can provide you with an escape for a little bit of time. This is something that made me feel less alone as a teenager – and is a tactic I still use today. If you’re a person who loves listening to music, go for some slow songs at a low voice. It’s important to take some time off from these busy schedules and just relax for a while. Play with your younger siblings or just go out for a walk. All these measures have actually helped me in processing my day to day activities. What really matters is that you actually get work done anyway.

 

 

  • WORK ALONGSIDE A FRIEND –

This can be difficult as it requires the right type of friendship but if you have this sort of a person in your life, do this as often as possible. Find someone you can work alongside effectively and productively. The goal here is to work with someone who shares similar goals as you, or even someone you’re collaborating on a project with so that you can get the work done, together.

 

 

  • MAKE IT A CREATIVE DAY –

Something I have written about a lot and so do tell people is how you should keep moving forward and stretch your muscles a bit to get your work done. If you still want to feel somewhat productive but just can’t get into your flow, make it a creative day. Draw, play the guitar, watch a movie with your family. Do something which can spark your creativity back again and get you thinking in a right direction.

 

 

  • DO ALL OF THE ABOVE –

I’ll be honest here – I have a habit of rewarding myself every week, whether it be clothes (most of the times since I so love fashion), eat my favourite food, watch my all time favourite movies and de-stress myself from all the tough days I had been through previously.

 

 

Just because everybody is going out on a Saturday night, doesn’t mean even you have to. If you would rather work on something that means a lot to you, then I’ll suggest trying all of the above measures and add some fun to your grind.

 

 

How To Nail Office Wear/Business Casual Look For Men

As we enter the golden era of initiating our step towards earning for ourselves and our family, it is very important to make sure that you are carrying your look effectively and with ease. Call it office wear or just business casual, we often tend to make mistakes on very basic things while dressing and to make an image in front of your colleagues and your boss, it is essential to dress up in the right way with following some very standard parameters.

 

 

So, welcome to the today’s blog in which I’ll be discussing some quick essentials and facts you need to know about office wear and business casuals and how to style yourself in a very meaningful manner.

Essentials are the key to build your wardrobe and trust me, one mistake and all your look can happen to be highly unsuccessful. Watch out for these 5 essentials you need to have for improving your style game.

 

  • SHIRTS –

If you’re into going to an old-school type of office where employees around are you are much elder and the surrounding influences a strict traditional attire, this simply means that you can’t play much with colours. Go for shirts such as Blue, Pink or White – the most standardized, the most basic and the most elegant colours to wear.

 

 

 

 

LIGHT BLUE – PINK – WHITE = Traditional Colors

Prefer wearing lighter coloured shirts in the daytime and dark coloured shirts in the night time. Old school office dressing just ends up being up being very subtle and very sober where you can’t wear half sleeve shirts, no loud patterns and no saturated colours (Intensity of the colour is very high).

Give priority to lighter shades but few darker shades count on the modern business casuals especially when the people around you are very modernized, when it comes to lifestyle and supports, what it means to be a true gentleman in Dapper. (Only if the workplace allows you so).

 

 

 

 

BLACK – NAVY BLUE – GRAY – BROWN = Modernized Business Casual Colors

 

  • PANTS –

Colour selection should be very strict in case of pants. Wearing black, charcoal grey, navy blue and brown are the new age business casual colours which will always be the highlighting ones in your outfit.

There are two kinds of pants –

Traditional (Suit Pants/Trousers) – Make sure to get your pants taper towards the base which means making sure it is more sleek, much sharper from the fashion perspective.

 

 

Chinos – Chinos are basically the midline between jeans and trousers or suit pants. They are generally casually looking, tight around your thighs. Be strict in your colour selection and if worn correctly, no one is going to stop you from ruling the game.

 

 

(Make sure to select your pants colour to be slightly on a darker side than your shirt colour because it actually attracts attention more towards the upper body)

 

  • BELTS –

 One of the most essential accessory when it comes down to men’s wear and styling. Prefer avoiding cotton belts as much as you can. With the addition of a proper belt to your office look or business casual, make sure that your belt colour complements your shoe colour or let it be near to that colour tone. The right choice is wearing leather belts or faux leather belts.

 

 

 

  • SHOES –

Well, my favourite category which I was waiting for, to come as soon as possible. There are some common mistakes which we tend to do at the time of dressing –

1) Forget to match the colour of our socks to our shoes.

2) Doesn’t wear shoes complementing the pants ( can be of the same colour tone or slightly darker ).

3) Doesn’t bother about the polish.

 

 

 

 

The most common modern formal shoes are the brogues, monk straps and loafers.

( According to me, when it comes to formal footwear, they are found slightly on the expensive side but invest once and they’ll serve you longer than any normal footwear. )

 

  • WATCHES –

Along with belts, watches are again the most important essential in formal dressing. If you’re into traditional formal attires, prefer wearing metallic watches and on the other hand, if you’re a modern business casual person, go for leather or faux leather watches. Avoid wearing big dial or eye catchy dial watches.

 

 

 

 

That’s all for this blog. You can write me a mail in case of any queries or image consultancy.

I hope this blog was productive and valuable to you from every perspective!

Thank you for stopping by until the end!

How To Become The Best Version Of Yourself?

You are here in this world for three main reasons. The first one is to experience as many different things as possible and enjoy life to the full. The second one is to create, contribute, share, and leave a positive legacy behind.

And the third reason why you’re here on this planet is to improve, evolve, grow and become the best version of yourself.

 

 

Another day, another blog post and another story which might trail down to motivate you in some way or the other.

Before sleeping and after waking up, do ask this question to yourself that ‘what kind of person do you want to be?’

I mean everybody wants to be rich, wants to have a good lifestyle and most importantly ‘have it all’.

With time, I have noticed three ugly qualities that resist a human to become his/her best version and that is –

  • Greed
  • Vanity
  • Addiction

 

  • Having It All –

I have actually come across people who have a tendency of equating their success with ‘having it all’, but this can end up a slippery slope. The appetite for success develops into greed.

 

 

I have met many bloggers and influencers who were unhappy, negative people. It surprised me because It looked like they had it all. But deep down they hadn’t done the work of figuring out what kind of person they wanted to be.

Let me ask you the same question again, What kind of person do you want to be? 

  • Vanity –

Living in a culture of entertainment and celebrities, a lot of people succumb to vanity. I mean we all want to look good, isn’t it?

 

 

Recently, I was just passing from a gym and saw a man with a good built, shaved legs and ripped. I don’t know but after having all that which we humans consider as ‘perfect’, I found that man to be very unhappy. You know what the problem is? We spend an enormous amount of time, energy and money in improving our looks and developing our character.

Becoming the best version of yourself is far away from just sculpted muscles, waxed chests and whitened teeth. It requires intellectual enrichment, empathy, sacrifice for others and the most important quality – Kindness!

 

  • All things in Moderation –

 

 

Perhaps, more than vanity and greed, addiction account for the grief in most people lives. The problem is that we like some things way too much. We pursue them at all costs and become addicted.

Living in a country like India where addictions are just accounted for drinking alcohol and sexual misbehaviour, there are so many other addictions out there which are neglected –  Social media addiction, food addiction, addiction to drama, even healthy pursuits like fitness can become a destructive addiction.

 

 

Addictions can be treated. Simply ask yourself what kind of person you want to be? The answer will come to you and then what? Begin the process right away. You can always make changes and become the best version.

No matter who you’re, no matter what you did, no matter where you’ve come from, you can always change and become a better version of yourself!


That’s all for today. You can write me down on arpitpahwa4@gmail.com or can easily connect with me on any of my social handles given in the right-hand sidebar.

Thank you for stopping by until the end.

Don’t forget to add value to others as they’ll come back when the time comes.

Have a great week, ahead!

See you in the next one!

Inner Peace Is The New Success!

 Happiness is the new rich. Inner peace is a new success. Health is a new wealth. Kindness is the new cool!

 

Unflappable? That is such a wonderfully descriptive word. A person is said to be unflappable if he/she potentially has or shows calmness in a situation of crisis. I have known some truly unflappable people. They discharge an inner calmness even in the hardest circumstances. They are the ones who are fully present with everyone, gentle and possess a positive attitude towards life.

 

 

So many of us exist in a cloud of internal and external chaos.

With such an over-scheduled and preoccupied lifestyle, it is difficult to relax and enjoy life with all of the distractions and cold phases.

 

What is meant by Inner Peace?

 

 

Inner peace is more about being than doing. It’s all about learning to correct and not struggling against. It’s about being focused in the present and not dwelling in the chapters of the past or the dreams of the future. The rewards of inner peace are numerous. It all includes mental and physical well being of an individual, self-confidence and more intense and more joyful experience.

 

How to attain Inner Peace?

 

 

  • Have nothing unresolved –

Resolving your professional and personal matters are necessary as it withdraws energy gets you numb and broken. It’s better to make short-term schedules and keep the things sorted.

 

  • Surrender and accept what it is –

Accepting your failures are much more important than enjoying your success. The one who surrenders and accepts will never make the same mistake again. Rather than resisting and fighting, stop struggling. Resisting blocks energy and creativity.

 

  • Take full responsibility for how you react to others –

You choose your behaviour and you decide what you want to be in all circumstances. Plan for being a calm and unflappable person.

 

  • Become aware of and sensitive to feelings rather than ignoring them –

These feelings can turn out to be a big gut vibes in your day to day and even in your business. Never ignore these feelings as it might turn your struggle into the fortune. Be aware of what’s running inside your head. Become aware of your internal environment.

 

  • Know your higher self –

The only person who knows what you’re capable of doing, capable of producing is just you. Know your goals, understand them, implement what’s necessary at the right time and at the right moment.

 

  • Prioritize peace ahead of performance –

Setting up our priority list is what we all have been doing after puberty but how about keeping ‘peace’ in the first place? Try and find out yourself!

 

How can Inner Peace lead us to a successful life?

 

 

We all are running in the quest for a happy life which is full of freedom and security. The search for happiness and a successful life is one of the most common goals to everyone. Life is full of challenges. For an instance, rather than thinking of them as a reason to give up just think of them as a source of knowledge and experience. Failures teach us more than what success could. With experience comes wisdom, more positivity towards achieving something, stability and productivity automatically enhances.

With inner peace comes Introspection, self-control and self-improvement. Introspection is having a knowledge of your own thoughts and emotions. Introspection is like a lantern, it might provide light, but it doesn’t guarantee to make you see the things.

There are no limits. All you have to keep in mind is to control your mind from all the negativity trying to attack you.

Self-Improvement is what means to build yourself, to train your mind and improve and nourish your character and attitude towards living.

With a peaceful mind, the success rate automatically doubles.

 

Few tips and tricks for lasting happiness!

 

 

If you do any or all of these things a little more often than you currently do, yes you can find your life to be less stressful, more meaningful, happier, wealthier and healthier.

How much? Depends on how often you do them. Maybe 5% or 5000%?

Let’s find out what they are –

  • Schedule time to hang out with your 5-15 best friends.
  • Say ‘thank you’ literally everytime you think you should.
  • Help people achieve their goals.
  • Every six months make sure to identify what you’d like to do in the next six months or so.
  • Eat food that you love to eat.
  • Do things you enjoy doing.
  • Schedule something to look forward to.
  • Exercise
  • Document your progress.
  • Keep in regular touch with your close friends.
  • Worship or meditate or practice yoga.
  • At night, write down one thing you’d like to do the next day.
  • Try new things.
  • Be kind to others.
  • Forgive people.
  • Celebrate others success.
  • Reward yourself for every small milestone achievement.

These were the few practical tricks you can do to everlasting happiness.

The Dreamer!

It all starts with an ambition to do something, that hungriness to do something big. It all starts with a dream, a dream full of vision and outcomes. There are many talented people who haven’t fulfilled their dreams because they over thought it or were too cautious about the audacity and ultimately unwilling to make that leap of faith. Are you feeling something relatable?

 

 

When I meet people, I can often figure out whether the person is going to do something or just flirting with the idea. Those who carry their idea to execution are actually the ones who are single-mindedly focused on creating it. You and only you know when the idea will be ripe and when do you have to eat it. A half-baked cake will never be as tasty as a hot chocolate fudge provided, you need to have patience when you’re working on your dreams. No successful person has achieved fame and wealth overnight.

 

 

What do you actually mean by a desire and a dream? Dr Abdul Kalam has very well quoted “ A dream is not something which you see while sleeping but it is something which doesn’t allow you to sleep!”.

Remember,

Your Desire for Success    >    Your Fear of Failure

Life is all about living up to one’s desires and dreams and I believe in everyone having a dream, no matter small or big. True education is something which can be helpful in differentiating between the two of them.

A Game Between A Dream And A Desire!

  • A desire is like a craving and dream is like hunger. Cravings can be changed at a time but a dream? Can only be sated upon fulfilment.

 

  • A desire can make a person selfish whereas dreams will build ideas, processes and even organizations.

 

  • A desire is all about yourself but a dream is something which expands your vision over the idea of changing yourself and the ones surrounding you.

 

 

BE A DREAMER!

Be a dreamer.

See all the beauty despite the outcomes it may lead you. The joy in every single move.

Be a dreamer.

Reach out for the impossible, the illusions you get when you’re alone. Turn them into reality as this is the only time you have got to play.

Be a dreamer.

Live out the opportunities. Be a dreamer and see the world as it should be. ALIVE AND VIBRANT!

Be a dreamer.

Be surprised with our own results. Dream the moment and build the life of a free soul. Unrestrained, glorious and massive!

Be a dreamer.

Paint the colour of your dreams as your life is a canvas. Be a dreamer!

 

And, I just want to conclude here by saying that If you don’t want the next 10 Years to be like the last then now is the time to do something different!

Work now and live the rest of your life like a champion!

We have officially crossed 5k+ views with this blog post. Thank you so much to each and everyone who have been loving my content.

I Am Nearly There..

Another day, another topic and I’m back with something great which will definitely help you in some way or the other. I just want to say a quick thank you from The Parallel Edit and Team to all of you who have been supporting and loving my work. You’ve literally changed my life!

 

 

Sometimes, It’s important to remind yourself from where have you started, how long do you have to go on your journey to achieve what you have always wanted and the resources you require to make sure you’re not occupied with stagnation on your path. It’s actually so easy to beat yourself up because you aren’t at the point where you were supposed to be exactly at the time when you started something fresh but trust me, that’s okay.

Like in the last blog post, I had mentioned about the individuals who attain excellent results in their initial months of training but what after 6 months or a year when all those approaches suddenly stop working? That’s where the real process starts.

This weekend I want all of you to focus your mind and energy on realising how far you have come and how close you really are. I want all of you to take a couple of hours free from your busy schedules and reflect on the fact, that how close you actually are on attaining that milestone you have always wished for, how much closer you’re now to your dreams than you were 5-10 years back.

I’m nearly there..

  • Just sit down for a while and think how can you improve. Aggregate thoughts, let them wander your mind for a while and find ways to better yourself in your day to day lifestyle.
  • Trust me, you’re actually just one or two steps away from grooving on to your path. One right decision can actually turn around things for you. Take your steps on the ladder very wisely.
  • You’re just a few steps away from getting everything sorted and lined up. It’s the time to blow the world with your ideas and talents.

After all those months of setbacks, failures, disappointments, messing up, lack of resources and capital to start my own business made me teach many a lesson which simply success and winning can never teach me. Nearly there.. is what I have always used as a mantra to get sorted when things weren’t right. I could actually feel it in my heart that I ain’t that far away.

 

 

I just want to conclude here by saying – Keep that craziness within you alive as this will fetch you many a place in your life. Find your 3 hobbies – one to make you money, one to keep you in shape and one to keep you creative!

Like I always say, from The Parallel Edit and Team, I sign off from this article. You’re open to giving your valuable feedback. Shoot me a mail or you can contact me anytime if you’re seeking some help.

Cheers to your success!

Just Breathe!

Hey everyone. How are you all? I hope this year is off to a great start for you!

It’s very easy to join an exercise or gym initially when the progress is very quick when all your results happen to be fast but what after 6 months or a year when all your growth suddenly stops? That’s where the grown-ups are separated from the kids.

GYM, the basic necessity of the modern era, cravings for curves has set levels of competitions, trust me its same like cracking an IIT exam. Achieving the muscularity was never easy, you need to work on a lot many things before you start the journey.

  • MOTIVATION –

The motivation never comes easy, if it comes then it won’t be staying long, choosing the right method, trainer or influencer is important. Whether you’re looking to take home first place or just want to go faster than the person next to you on the treadmill, friendly competition has some major boosting power. So, a little friendly competition can definitely light a fire within you.

 

  • MINDSET –

Prepare your mind for the worst, muscles never come easy. When you focus on growth mindset, you embrace all the things that have felt threatening: challenge, criticism and setbacks. When you embrace the tough stuff, you open yourself to fully realize your potential and all that you can be. Instead, depending on the trainer, steroids you should focus on capabilities, strength and discover your own self. Workout with a proper mindset and with the thought that you have to break your own ‘HARD AND FAST RULES’. 

 

  • GOALS –

Goals, both long term and short term are necessary, not only setting a goal but accomplishing them also. Either gaining or losing short goals are basic while setting goals you need to be pragmatic.

Set your own benchmarks. The most important thing is to KNOW YOUR BODY. YOUR STRENGTHS, YOUR WEAKNESSES, YOUR CAPABILITIES, HOW MUCH YOU CAN PAIN YOUR BODY.

Like I always say, analyse and track your progress when in a gym and reward yourself for every achievement you attain. It all starts with a change in perspective. Shift your thinking from couch potato mentality to thinking like an athlete.

Though, it is not easy to just let go of something that you have been following since years. The growth mindset does not allow people to love what you are doing, making this physical activity as a part of life will be life-changing for you, accept it as a lifestyle, not as a burden or a forced job.

Hereby, I would like to quote one example – Wilma Rudolph, 3 gold medal holder in Olympics also was known as world “fastest woman”. Wilma was far from a physical wonder as a youngster. She was a premature baby, the twenty of the twenty-two children born to her parents, and a constantly sick child. At four years of age, she almost died of pneumonia, scarlet fever and POLIO. She almost lost hope of walking properly. Her positive mindset was that which changed her life upside down.

After setting up of a positive and growing mindset choosing the right diet is your next steps, diet is never same for all. Consult an experienced dietitian for the plan.

Because at the end its 50% diet and 50% workout.

Start Before Its Too Late. Sore Today, Strong Tomorrow!

So, that’s all for this article. I hope you had a great time reading this. Always welcome for your valuable feedbacks. In case of any queries or anything you would like to share regarding this article, you can shoot me a mail.

From The Parallel Edit and Team, I would like to thank Sanchi Sapra for helping me out in writing this blog post.

How To Stay Motivated During Your Exams!

Okay, so boards are around the corner. The clock is running faster than normal and it’s almost time to show your potential on the sheet but firstly, I just want to congratulate and say –  All the best to each and every one of you who are appearing in these board exams. Nervous? Confused? Happens!

 

 

Being senior to you and your elder brother, trust me this phase will actually show what you truly are. You’ll get to know yourself well, you’ll be able to communicate with yourself in a better way and those intuitions will definitely strike. You just got to listen to them, believe in them and work hard. Like I always say, focus on your strengths and not your weaknesses.

The time you get between your exams is actually very crucial so make sure you are utilising your time well. Your performance in the exam is directly proportional to what you feed your mind today. You might be a good performer in the whole semester but if you aren’t moving with a positive mental game, you’ll not be able to achieve the standards you have set for yourself. So, having a positive mindset is what you need to focus on apart from your studies.

 

 

I have always believed in this one simple principle – ‘The one who works hard will never experience failure.’ The one who expects way too much and doesn’t work up to the bar will never stand a place. So, it’s better to accept what you’re capable of doing, accept your mistakes and rather than leaving them, work on them and improve.

How to study effectively for the exams?

 

Credits: https://medium.com/passtheboardexam/how-two-regular-students-reviewed-and-topped-the-civil-engineers-board-exam-5735958c3f8d

 

  1. With so much of competition prevailing in the Indian Education System, I have just one simple tip to offer – Meditate as much as you can and then sit for your studies. Don’t let the peer pressure affect your mindset. You don’t have to hurry, you don’t have to run fast as you may get down. Work and run at your own speed, don’t try to act smart and overtake. Believe in yourself, your hard work will determine your success rate.
  2. Time Management is what you have to work on. Not every exam will have 7 days off so prepare your schedule in such a way, that each topic gets sufficient time and priority.
  3. If you’re not a fast writer, practice writing when you’re studying. Eventually, it will help you to enhance your speed and make notes simultaneously will help you to learn fastly.
  4. You have to forget about the marks at this time, as this can build up stress in your head. Focus on working rather than stressing over.
  5. On the course of studying, we usually forget to get our hands on mastering the basics. If you have sufficient time, start with the basics first and then move onto the important topics.
  6. For some maths is really a tough subject to handle, and they plan to polish it at the end. However, it is you who will appear for the exam, whatever strategy you make, stick to it.

In the end, I just want to conclude by saying – Be a Self Motivator, nobody else is going to do that for you. Rather than stressing over, enjoy and work hard in this phase. Believe in yourself and all that you are. Know that there is something in you and that is greater than any obstacle.

All the very best to the students appearing in board exams. Blessings for y’all!

I value your feedback so don’t hesitate to email me with any questions.

Cheers to your success!

Please Don’t Settle!

Hey there, my lovely people! So, I know I’m super late this time in delivering a blog post. My Apology. Apparently, was just in a mind block and due to the same reason, was not able to write any content.

I didn’t start The Parallel Edit with the intention of turning it into a business. It began as a Free WordPress Blog in 2017 and that was meant to keep me inspired during a difficult time in my life. It’s not that I have been writing to entertain anyone here but to make sure, how can I get that motivation while living in the ‘demotivated phase of my life’.

I have been enjoying creating content that has seemed to resonate with so many people over all this time and that’s what I want you people to learn – to do something which you actually love and not like.

Don’t settle for less, don’t crave for more.

You know I’m just like you people. Gets easily bored, a risk taker, always colours outside the lines, think with my heart, make a lot of mistakes, hate the rules, believe in working independently but the most highlighting of them all, is I believe in dreaming big.

Create a good picture for a better living.

Start a process. Analyze your growth for the first 6 months. Maybe it won’t work out. Maybe it’s not going to go your way. Maybe, It’s just going to be another stupid idea you try, that doesn’t catch out. Maybe everyone will laugh at your failure but just follow this one simple principle and that is – “Please Don’t Settle!”

 

 

Think about it? How much better you would be or precisely, your life would be if you could change the conversation going in your head?

Someone close to me once said, as you get older and wiser as you go on your own journey, you will have to be your own mother, your own father, your own angel and your own teacher and after all this time I have found this true when it comes to communicating with myself.

Settling in failure can never give you a living you have always wanted to build. You have to keep moving, keep grinding in order to find some place and some light in this beautiful world.

Thereby, sharing my few personal tips to stay motivated and these are as follows-

  • Accomplish one thing in the morning, big or small
  • Use the momentum from it to go on.
  • Remind yourself why you’re alive!
  • Make a game out of your challenges
  • Take a photo of the best part that happened in your day
  • Talk to yourself in your free time. Communicating with yourself is necessary!
  • Recognize and show off your progress.
  • Celebrate other people’s success.
  • Be kind, fair and unafraid to speak up!

When you’re faced with a creativity block, what’s your strategy to get innovating? I value your feedback and don’t hesitate in writing me down with your strategies. Would surely love to read them up. Email me with your questions by tapping on the contact category.

Have a great week ahead!

Cheers to your success!

What’s Your Idea Of Change?

Have you ever found yourself to be as thin as a plastic bag drifting away by the wind or have you ever felt being buried six feet down and you’re not able to hear any scream?
This blog post is for you. This blog post is for all those who want to start again. Start, not from where they left, but from where they see the beginning of their next phase. 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. Remember the days you prayed for all those things you have now!
Being an entrepreneur and author, I have always seen life with a percept of plateaus and valleys. Here, plateaus refer to the upstream and valleys are downstream and trust me, that’s how each one of our life revolves. Intricate enough? That’s what life is.
Sometimes, we may find ourselves hopeless, less motivated and what not but at the end of the day it’s a strong will, a passionate heart and an ambitious mind which can fight against all the odds coming in the way. So, what’s your idea to bring a change in yourself for the betterment of yourself? Think about it!
For me, a person who stays positive in a negative situation is a winner. Even I have been in the darkest of times. Hopeless, wasn’t motivated enough, wasn’t happy with what was going on around me, felt like a beaten down old horse ready to be put down.
I believe we need to accept that every once in a while we will have that moment of failure or breakdown but we don’t have to be strict on ourselves at such a moment. Adrenaline running down your nerves telling you to run away instead of accepting it and trying for that one last time but it’s just you, just you who has to find the remedy and not the faults.

So, are you ready to bring on that change in you and ready to step into the next phase of your life?

You really can’t solve a problem by using the same kind of thinking you used when you created them. So, it’s the right time for a change. Don’t waste time in feeling sorry for yourself. Embrace the change and welcome the new challenges with open arms.
Believe in finding happiness in small things, but don’t waste your energy on all those things you can’t control. Audacity is what makes a human afraid, as being mediocre is what we have always learned. Break the shell and create a change for yourself and by yourself.
Grow, Develop and Evolve!
