Follow The Calling; Not The Crowd!

Hey there, people! Sorry was not able to put up any post due to my hectic schedule. Almost an end to this month as well so are you guys working on improving yourself? If not, start because it’s never too late.

 

 

Follow the calling, not the crowd. Yes, you heard it right! Intuition has always played the most decisive role in the making or breaking of an individual. It’s your intuition that can eventually take you to places but the only condition lies is the ability of the person to trust upon his gut feelings and accordingly produce the desired action. It is therefore very important to learn how to listen to and trust your gut.

The quirky urge, a funny tingle, that little voice in your head. These are your gut feelings talking to you but the question is, what are they telling you? Should you listen to them? And.. the answer is a BIG YES!

These messages which you get from inside can be just silent warnings or reminders and in retrospect, may be right or even wrong. But you must be wondering why I’m quoting a lesson on intuitions?

Probably in a year like 2018 where you have that freedom to turn up your passion into your business, you should know how much your intuitions will help you in raising the bar to generate more income than you could have ever earned. With n number of career options prevailing you must choose to act on the calling you’re destined for and not choose what everyone else is heading to.

You don’t have to worry about what others are planning to choose as their careers neither should you rely on anyone. Surround yourself with people who are so keen on expanding businesses, or in short be friends with the motivated ones. If you’re still unaware of your own self, it’s better to join some programs, talk to yourself and spend some quality time in figuring out what are you actually destined for. It’s the right time to begin the process!

Students out in stress about their career plans tend to follow someone else dreams. You don’t have to worry about what others are planning but rather you should focus your energy and time on realizing what you’re capable of doing and producing. Think about all the good times you want from your life. Believe me, life is very beautiful out there and yet challenging. You just have to wait for your turn and burn the bridge down.

It’s your journey, It’s your hard work, It’s just you at the end who has to finish being productive. Follow your calling, believe in what you have got and if you’re risky enough, try to opt for something which you actually love and not like.

So, ending up with this note – It’s great when things happen the way you plan but you also need to open to all those things unfolding in their own way.

Have a great weekend, y’all!

See you in the next post till then keep smiling and keep reading!

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!
