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!

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!
