My mantra: “No Defeat is FINAL! I have no defeat ATTITUDE!! I am STRONG!! I am connected to UNIVERSAL POWER!”
There were many times when people teased me and bullied me in school. Some parted ways for no reason. I was a good kid, and still, I was teased all the time.
I was honest, sincere and always wondered- “Why me”? I had no confidence in myself. I felt that something was wrong in me.
In school, I was teased over being the “brown kid”, although I grew up in India. Other kids called me by different names. Those moments had shaped my “belief” that something is wrong in me.
And, as a result, I always believed — I am not good enough, and I am not attractive enough to have people in my life. I believed that something physical is wrong in me. There is some flaw in me.
I lived with this story up until the age of 29. To be precise, 29.5!!
It’s so surprising to know that — how can somebody live life like this for so long. That’s true!
I am also surprised. So what? I had to go through all that pain to know how pain feels like so that I can really enjoy the joy.
And, 2017 came with the end of my old life!
Unfortunately, a lot of people live an unaware and mediocre life for so long. I truly hope — this post will bring some light and awareness to the people who feel stuck, and desire to grow.
Please know that, if I can become better, you can also become much better than who you are, at present! Trust me!
I am thankful and beyond grateful to all those people who always let me down. If they didn’t do that, I wouldn’t be the person who I am today.
And, I have never been the same!
I had hit the rock bottom emotionally and mentally in early 2017. I stumbled upon a Youtube channel of Corey Wayne, and since then life has taken a new direction.
There is always the right time and things show up when we expect the least. I experienced the same feeling when I came across Corey Wayne on YouTube whose inspiration and teachings gave me another level of confidence.
I never know“this side of the world” ever existed. This side of the world means — people are inspired, motivated, confident, courageous, open and talk about the growth.
I had never seen this kind of learning in life prior to 2017.
What you don’t know, you don’t know!!
“Always believe that LIFE is happening for you, not TO you!!”
If you fall on the ground, lay on your back, and lookup. If you can look up, you can get up. Nobody in the world can determine your destiny except you.
I believe that this short post will inspire you all to find the Greatness inside you.
Success depends on prior preparation. Past worries and future concerns only bring clouds of sadness. Learn from the past, apply in the present because you never know about tomorrow.
Treat past as a learning school!
Don’t beat yourself over the past. It has gone and will never come back. It’s a stupid simple statement, and has a deep meaning.
If something is not working in your life, it doesn’t mean it will never work. Change your approach, and even if it doesn’t work, then keep changing your approach until you get what you want.
Success depends on your “standards”. Raise your standards to achieve ultimate success. However, standards without any action are worthless. You get to take action every day no matter what happens in your life.
Success depends on the “choices” you make. Choices depend upon the decisions you make. Once you decide, then take action!. If your actions don’t lead you to success, change your strategy.
Always remember that life happens for you, not to you. Success and fulfillment go hand-in-hand. If you get massive success and still not fulfilled, then it’s an ultimate failure.
Success is something who you become, not what you get out of it. When you reach the top of the mountain, you see that there’s another mountain.
Learning to find happiness is the key to every small thing in life. It is often a challenge and requires practice.
Bad times are like “winters” which shall pass. Nothing stays forever, even the bad times.
When you hit a bad time — just stay calm, sit down, relax, work on the fundamentals and wait for the stormy dust to go away.
There’s always a plan in life, don’t push against it. Just go with the flow of life. There is God’s plan. If your plan isn’t working, it means God has another plan for you.
Easier said than done! Right?
I know this is hard to digest to hear that — “just go with the flow”. Life can be tough, and sometimes it’s wise to accept the situation. Acceptance opens the doors to new opportunities.
You have greatness in you. Keep moving!
“Work harder on yourself than you do on your job”. — Jim Rohn
This quote from Jim Rohn has transformed my life, my attitude, my beliefs, and my perspective. He is one of the very first personal development speakers I started listening to, in 2017.
“Work harder on yourself than you do on your job” is a very profound statement, and contemplating this has helped me in living life with happiness, vitality and harmoniously. I’ve been able to set goals I could have never imagined in life.
Life is not going to be easy and you have no idea the challenges it will throw to you. A wise person always prepares for life.
If you’re still reading this, you are wise!
The challenge and fun in life are to get up when life knocks you down. It’s not always fun though, yet it provides opportunities for growth.
Are you one of those people who say- “oh man, it’s Monday again”, or, “Thank god, it’s FRIDAY(TGIF)”. Or, are you excited about each and every day of Life?
If you ask me this question- my response is, “I am just excited about life, I am happy, I am enjoying this journey and my happiness doesn’t depend on outer conditions”.
“Without dreams, people perish- BIBLE”.
Ask yourself these questions and write it down:
- What are your goals?
- What are your dreams for the rest of your life?
- What do you want to become?
- What do you want to see?
- What do you want to have?
- What relationships do you want to seek?
Try to be 1% better every single day. “DO NOT wait to be Perfect!”
“Perfectionism is the antidote to shame.”– Brene Brown
The key is just to start where ever you are. NEVER STOP moving.
Fulfilling dreams are not going to be easy. It is in the pain we change and grow. It is in the struggles we find ourselves.
Believe in your abilities to figure things out. Believe in yourself.
Have faith. Have Patience!
Just say to yourself- “YES, I CAN DO IT. I CAN DO IT.”
You have only one life. Grow to the max you can. There’s no limit. If you think you have a limit, you don’t know your potential yet.
If I can become a better version of myself — trust me, everybody can do it.
Keep growing and help others grow along with you.
GROWTH is powerful. When you grow in all the areas of life, you will be a different person. Growth takes time, a really long time, and there is no end.
Growth is not immediate. It takes time. You get to work it every single day.
How to start the process of growth?
Accept yourself first wherever you are in life. Only when you accept yourself, then change and growth happen. Let go of who you think you are supposed to be.
There are 2 ways to motivate someone. One comes from a place of deficiency, that something is wrong and you need to fix that. Another comes from a place of abundance, which means there is nothing wrong with you and you can still want more and have more and expand your awareness.
I see this everywhere on social media where people are trying to motivate that comes from the lack. A simple example is “from broke to …. “, “from this to that..”, and you are good enough to fill in the blanks.
You all have something to motivate others, and that can start from where ever you are!
Inspired=” In Spirit”.
When you say that you’re inspired, that means you are connected to your spirit which is at the core of your soul.
When you are inspired by an extra-ordinary purpose, things start to happen, and your consciousness starts to expand. You activate the universal powers that have been out of the range.
Feel Inspired! Be Motivated!
