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!

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!

Hate is Heavy!

Howdy, Readers!

So, how did you people spent your new year? I hope everyone had a good start to 2018.

Looking forward to writing more and more for you people and in return, expect the same love and support, you people have been giving me for the past few months. Cheers to this new start!

So, Ruchika Kachroo is the guest blogger for this first post of 2018. An avid reader, an excellent writer and yes, a good friend of mine. I have been reading her work on Quora and believe me, her expression of writing is phenomenal.

Let’s find out what she has to say about this topic. Let’s get started!

Is hate Heavy?

“I have decided to stick with love. Hate is too great a burden to bear.”

~ Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

What exactly is hatred?

Hate is a toxic energy, which can wear many different masks, but behind them, all dwells the same thing — fear. Have you ever carried the burden of hate? I know how hard it is to let it go. Irrespective of how the hate shows up, when our body takes up intense feelings of hate, we are the ones who suffer; we isolate ourselves from life and actually end up holding ourselves a prisoner from happiness.

 

Sadder yet is the burden of hate that many are immersed in because the people around them taught them how to take hate as a way of life, even before they could talk. There is no question that this kind of hate is born in the womb of fear, which often outstands itself as an over-inflated sense of superiority, intolerance and arrogance. This is sad because it really boils down to a lack of understanding of others who may be different than they — fueled by fear.

How to set yourself free from the toxicity of hate?

The good news is, if willing, we can set ourselves free of toxicity of hate today. How? by Sticking to love. If we feel the burden of hate weighing heavy upon our heart, do some self-enquiry today; if you find any sense of hate lingering in the corners of your mind, shed the light of love on it and watch it dissolve. Hate exists in the darkness and in a sense of separation from God (light). Just as darkness cannot exist in the presence of light, fear cannot maintain its existence in the presence of love.

Stick with love; you’ll lighten your burden and the planet will be a better place as well for the next seven generations to come.

Here, are some few points you can consider to set yourself free from the toxicity of hate.

  • Don’t let the power of hatred affect you or change you in any case. Hold on to yourself, If the hatred must change you, let it only make you stronger and kinder.
  • Keep track of the ways in which your hatred, anger, emotions, and judgements affect your behaviour and relationships.
  • Choose three role models whose compassion and kindness inspire you. They can be anyone and you just have to let them inspire you to be a kinder, more compassionate person.
  • Spend time doing things that feel meaningful and fulfilling to you.
  • Let go; Be you!

So, these were the few points you should have in your mind as hatred has never made anyone successful or rich. With the beginning of this new year, It’s important to write each chapter with a good mark and then, all you have to do is maintain yourself as a consistent and persistent character.

That’s all for today. I hope you’ll defintely make a mark and be consistent and persistent in whatever you choose to work on. All the best!

Thanks, Ruchika, for giving your precious time in writing this content with The Parallel Edit.
