Falling Doesn’t Mean Failing!

Anything that annoys you is teaching you patience, anyone who abandons you is teaching you how to stand on your own two feet, anything you hate is teaching you, unconditional love, anything you can’t control is teaching you how to let go.

 

 

Don’t you think we live in a society where there is a notion of misinterpreting these two common words that are falling and failing? Why do people do that? Do they feel scared when it comes to accepting failures? It’s not easy to accept setbacks, disappointments and if you’re a person who is reluctant to accept the real truth then, this blog post is definitely for you.

 

 

EVEN WHEN I CAN’T SEE THE LIGHT AT THE END OF THE TUNNEL, I STILL BELIEVE IT’S THERE!

 

I have always viewed life in three major acts and these are Challenge, Owning it, and Using it to guide others. Ask this from yourself, how many challenges have you actually faced in your life, whether it be small or big, were you able to find the solution to it? Are you actually owning your life or you still give that charge to your parents? Are you capable enough to work for your dreams and visions? Do you have a vision or just whiling away your time here waiting for the right time to come or the miracle to happen?

The concept of failing was only created by those who were too scared to succeed, and exist in the same world as “giving up”. There is no such thing as failure; instead, everything is knowledge we can put into practice. Once you stick to the belief of feedbacks and improvements, there will not be any failures and just constant learning from the downfall and henceforth, self-improvement.

 

 

Well, consider a person who’s been hit with n number of rocks in a continuous succession. So, one of the rocks actually hit him on his head. Is he a failure just because he fell or he’s not able to fight? I hope you’re understanding this not so simple concept well.

Your journey will test you in enormous ways possible, will try to hit you hard and break you into pieces, self-doubts taking over at each step, pessimism being surmounted everywhere but how can one make it out of the water when being drowned? A shift in focus changes everything. Let your self-assurance take over your self-beliefs because these beliefs are actually made by us.

The no.1 reason why a person falls because he’s more of into appreciating the outcome than loving the goddamn process and why does a person fail? Simple, because he doesn’t even know what he wants and what he doesn’t want.

 

 

When you’re unaware of your own self, your own dimensions, this creates an imbalance leading to constant failures. It’s important to interact with yourself and you should know yourself better. The better the understanding and interaction is, the better you can adjust your sails even if you can’t change the direction of the wind.

 

 

PROCESS >>> OUTCOME

PROCESS ENCOURAGES EXPERIMENTATION

 

Mastering any area of your life will require exploration, adjustment and improvisation since you can’t always know your destination in advance. Prepare your mind for a long-term haul as your mind will be consumed for hundreds and thousands of falls and failures and all you need to invest is in making and correcting your previous mistakes and starting over.

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!

10 Clothing Summer Staples For Men

So, now that we are in the summer months, you must be wondering what to wear in this hot season which is exactly comfortable to wear and fits a bit proper – not so tight and not so loose as well. I wanted to cover a few must-haves for summer wardrobe that will have you looking awesomely stylish without breaking the blank.

In a country like India, we need to break this stereotype that if you totally wear branded clothes, only and only then you’ll be considered a fashionable person which I think is not. Being a fashion advisor, I’ll suggest you to have different pieces of cloth so that it gets easier for you to ‘mix and match’ your clothes and curate a different and presentable look and trust me, it’s okay to wear clothes which are not that expensive. You should have your main focus on styling yourself well and only that matters.

So, I have prepared a list of top favourite picks which I’ll suggest you guys shop for so as to expand your summer wardrobe.

 

  • Sunglasses – Sunglasses are a must-have in these summers so as it not only protects your eyes but when coordinated well with the outfit, adds elegance to the overall look. Shop for a pair of sunglasses which suits your face and budget.

 

 

  • T-shirts –

Not having proper and desired knowledge about the cloth type and measurements can actually downgrade your wardrobe. First of all, know your measurements well like I wear a size ‘M’. Some other person may be wearing a size ‘L’. When picking up any tee, don’t forget to check out for the washing tips as different clothes have different washing procedures.

 

 

If you ask me what to wear in summers, I’ll recommend you to go for Basic Tees, Abstract Prints, Horizontal or Vertical lines T-shirts, Patches tees, Polo T-shirts and OCBD (Oxford Cloth Button Down). Polo T-shirts and OCBD are almost similar and the only difference lies is in the buttoned segment present at the neck in OCBT whereas polo tees just have a winged collar.

 

 

The most important tip I would like to give you all is that, next time you shop for t-shirts, make sure that if you’re wearing a round neck tee, the segment of cloth should be close to the neck. Closer it is to your neck, the better the fit is.

 

 

The men’s with shorter height should generally go with vertical line tees as they look taller and the ones with less weight should wear horizontal lines as it makes them look broader.

 

  • Khakhi Shorts – Wearing jeans, trousers, chinos in summers can be very uncomfortable so, go for some khaki shorts. They end above or on your knees and are the workhorse of the summer. A lot of shopping websites have quirky and amazing designs in printed, florals and basic designs so, shop your preferred ones for your wardrobe.

 

 

  • Coloured Chinos – When it comes to men’s pants, chinos are undoubtedly an essential style. As versatile as they are fashionable, these trousers are a must-have for every man. Not just for the casual looks, but they can be worn with formal shirts making them a fantastic item to own.Colour is important but the key is to pull off the chinos. Do you need a tip? Try chinos on and see how they complement your build and height. Chinos should never be too long.

 

 

  • Lightweight belt – With shorts and summer chinos, you don’t want a heavy leather belt because they are probably designed for jeans. Try going for a lightweight belt so that you don’t feel stuck up in your stomach region. Go for a black and brown/Tan belt as they coordinate with any outfit and usually blend in with any type of colour.Purchase a heavyweight belt for a formal attire and a lightweight one for a semi-formal or casual attire.

 

  • Boat Shoes – They are cosy and comfortable to wear in summers. Pair them with a polo t-shirt and khaki pants and walk the carpet in style. Don’t be one of those guys that wears them with visible socks though. Either go barefoot or if you have sweaty feet, get some no-show socks.

 

 

  • Sneakers – Sneakers are just called as the New Sandals. These are the shoes primarily designed for sports or other forms of physical exercise but are often worn in everyday use. Try having different colours – white being the most trendy and most stylish. The best shopping websites to buy sneakers according to me, are Ajio, Koovs, Myntra.

 

 

  • The Fitted Short Sleeve Shirt – There’s an absurdly false rule that you should never a short sleeve buttoned shirt. As with everything goes, all that matters is your honing on in the fit. If you’re a loose skinny guy, go for a full sleeve shirt as it curtains up your skinny body and if you’re a man with a build, go for these half sleeves buttoned shirt. Pair them with your khaki shorts and tassel loafers and let the eyes roll.

 

 

 

  • Colognes – Smelling good in summers take a little extra effort, I mean it’s hot out there and you’re sweaty, but a solid fragrance is a great way to overcome the odds in your favour. Lighten up your fragrance arsenal with light, fresh scents that’ll last all summer long.

 


 

And, that’s all for today. Thank you for stopping by until the end. Will be writing on ‘ 10 Summer Clothing Staples For Women’ in the next blog post.

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!

What I Do When I Can’t Focus

Are you struggling to finish your tasks? Are you always distracted by notifications, gossiping, or anything that’s random?

 

 

In that case, you and I are alike. And you know what? Focusing on a single thing is probably one of the hardest things at work.

There’s always something that interrupts you, right?

  • Another person
  • A phone call
  • A meeting
  • A false emergency

Sure, you can blame on these things but that’s weak. You and I, we both know that things can’t interrupt you without your permission. And that simply means that every time you’re not focused, you’re simply giving someone or something the permission to invade your mind.

Scary, isn’t it?

Your life will never benefit just by looking at Instagram or Facebook, watching useless Youtube videos and reading negative articles.

 

 

So, what can you do to improve your focus? Here, are 2 things that I always do when I find myself not being able to focus on what really matters to me.

  • ELIMINATE – 

Every day, we accumulate stuff. We accumulate ideas. It’s the human tendency to make the ideas which are exposed openly as their own. Funny, isn’t it? Have you ever thought about that?

 

 

Okay, so let me take up my own example here. Being a writer, I constantly observe so many things around me on a regular basis. People actually come up and give me n number of ideas which I actually appreciate and one such idea was of starting a YouTube Channel. I built the strategy, I worked on creating a model for it. But there was just problem –  It consumes too much of my time and attention and as a consequence of it, I have to spend less time on writing and creating new articles. I thought of doing only that thing in which my time was fruitfully strategized and organized and that’s how eliminating comes into place. Eliminating is a key strategy that I use in many aspects of my life and so want you to focus on.

It’s important to figure out what you need to eliminate from your lives to make it completely organized, simple and that it’s easy to focus on?

If you’re struggling with focusing your mind on a single thing, try this strategy. Make your life simple and that’s a breeze to live.

  •  THINK ABOUT YOUR PAST SUCCESS- 

 

 

So, 2017 was actually the best year of my life as my passion for working as a writer came into existence and that’s how I started with my own blogging website. It’s never easy to step forward and take critics and that’s what helped me to grow – as a person and as a writer. The life of a blogger starts with the booming stats in the first six months but what after a year or so when the audience gets bored with your creative content? That’s where you have to start with your next strategy!

All you need to do is remember all those positive events that happened in the past. That’s a strategy to overcome your cold phases and runs a stream of positive energy levels in your blood.

Have you ever heard of the neurotransmitter, Serotonin? Serotonin is present on the right side of the brain and is responsible for all your emotional and creative nature. To improve your focus, boost your serotonin activity. When serotonin goes up, your focus goes up. Ultimately, that’s what you should do.

When I can’t focus, the first thing I do is acknowledge the problem and the solution required to correct that problem. Some people go through life without even acknowledging they have problems.

Focus on your life. Think about what matters to you. Do those things and don’t get distracted. Learn to stay on the path!

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

  • Reward yourself for every small milestone achievement.

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

Walk On The Vogue Side!

What is meant by vogue? Vogue is defined as the prevailing fashion or style at a particular time. ‘Walk On The Vogue Side’ is the third edition and it’ll be covering my knowledge of ethnic fashion. Ethnic style in fashion is an important, yet somewhat neglected area in our Lifestyle.

Ethnic fashion and wear cover all the Indian traditional category of clothing which is worn by Indian women and men as the sign of their culture. It includes Saree, Salwar Kameez, Lehenga and Kurti for the women and Kurta Pyjama, Sherwani, Dhoti Kurta for men.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I have always believed that clothing tends to have a great impact on our personality. In a country like India, you can easily discover different individuals who wear different outfits of various colours. Even the clothing scenario is diversified but still, you have a choice of either joining the trendy flow or to create your own style statement.

I personally feel western wear gives a freedom of expression whereas a traditional wear allows you to get in that flavour of your culture and traditions.

Yes, the Indian wedding season is here and there are a number of invites lying at home. Everyone loves attending this wedding season because of the food on the primary importance but there’s always one issue and that is deciding what to wear, especially with men.

So, this time rather than a dark or light coloured shirt or tee, I decided to give an ethnic touch to my look. I went up for an olive green kurta-pyjama with a touch of embroidery on it and matched it up with a multi-coloured colour splash waistcoat.

 

You can expand your style horizon by going for blue or olive green shades. Kurta Pyjamas are highly versatile so experiment with them as much as you can but make sure that your whole outfit is colour coordinated. Used this Red Polka Dot Jaipuri Chunni to enhance the overall look and to add a ‘Shahi or Nawab’ texture to the all over personality in the frame.

 

 

So, done with the first outfit now and next, I went up for a plain Khadi Kurta and paired it with a red and black checkered waistcoat with a slight sparkle on its outer adding to an exceptionally different outfit look. A black formal watch with a black aviator will do the rest for your outfit.

I completed this look by adding a dash of colour with a Maroon pocket square which gives a royal touch to the entire look.

 

 

 

So, if you haven’t still decided what to wear for the weddings coming ahead, go for a Kurta Pyjama with a waistcoat so as to provide a feel of Bandhgala to it. Trust me, you’ll be the show stopper!

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!

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!

Signing off from the today’s discussion. See you in the next one!
