Many of us feel dejected and disappointed when we are faced with failure. It often overpowers us and we feel useless and inadequate.
“Failure is the stepping stone to Success!”
This is a very old saying, which we might have all heard at one time or other. This is the single most important thing which we should always remember.
But how does failure act as a “stepping stone?”
It happens when we learn from that failure and apply that learning to improve ourselves.
Rather than sit around despondently, we should analyze the reasons for our failure and take action to correct ourselves.
This is how failure breeds success.
When we fail, it is because we tried something… We must learn from that failure and try in a different way. If that, too, fails… We must try once more, after taking further corrective action.
This is the most important part of failure…. Learning from it, and not repeating the same 💪💪💪
A true friend is one who sticks up for us even when we are not present at the scene. We will always have a group of people who are our friends… But only a true friend will stand by us when the chips are down. The rest will only be with us to share the good times, the parties, the movies, the games, the weekend jaunts. Once the going becomes a little difficult, these so-called friends will suddenly disappear.
Let’s train our minds to understand who our real friends are, and build deeper relationships with them. Let’s ensure that we too stand by them during their difficult times. That is what friends are for… Let’s cultivate true friendship.
Many of us go through life without ever really taking charge of ourselves. We go through our daily routines with dull monotony… We are scared to step out of the routine, for fear that we will lose our income, and for fear of what society will say about us. We don’t spend time with “ourselves”… We don’t really think about what we are doing… We prefer to just go with the flow, because that’s what everyone else is doing!
If we study the lives of people who are successful in life, we will always find certain common traits.
The first, and most important, trait is that successful people always had a burning desire to do something different. They have always been the ones who thought a little differently, who moved away from the flow, dared to be different!
They are the ones who found the courage to “follow their dreams”.
We all have dreams, we all are working towards making those dreams a reality. So how is it that some people are more successful than most?
The answer is simple!
Successful people write down their dreams, their goals… They create a vision of themselves having achieved their goals and living their dreams… Their minds are now tuned to find opportunities which will help them achieve their goals! And once they have found those opportunities, they utilize them with single-minded dedication and commitment.
This is the secret of success.
So “dream your dream”.
Set your goals and write them down.
Envision yourself as having achieved your goals and fulfilled your dreams.
Spend some time with yourself daily, analysing your thoughts.
Discard all negative thoughts.
Focus on the positive ones.
Do not worry about what others will think.
Just focus on your goals and keep working towards them… One small step at a time.
You will find true meaning in your life, and enjoy every minute of it!
Have a wonderful journey!
We often find ourselves hurrying through our daily routine, oblivious to everything that is happening around us. We are totally consumed by the need to complete the routine that we don’t really think about why we are doing these things.
Speed is important, no doubt, but it should be coupled with a clear sense of direction and purpose!
We must first identify our goals, set our destination, and then chart out the best possible path to reach that destination and achieve our goals.
It really doesn’t matter if the best path is not the fastest one… We progress and evolve only when the journey is long and arduous. It is the journey that we actually need to experience and learn from. So let’s fix our goals and focus on the journey towards achieving those goals 💪💪💪
Our lives are full of challenges. We spend each day overcoming a whole lot of them. Some of these are unexpected, while many of the challenges are of our own creation.
We fail to do what is necessary, at the appropriate time, and this becomes a big challenge for us.
We also tend to allow ourselves to get weighed down by these challenges, we begin to think that we are worthless, self-doubt becomes prevalent… We find ourselves feeling depressed and inconsequential.
But all this can change, if we train ourselves to always look on the bright side!
We may have missed a deadline, but if we maintain a positive mindset, it might help us to actually do an even better job than was originally expected!
Positivity generates Confidence… And it is only when we are confident that we will be able to think and act with clarity.
This, in turn, leads to better performance, and we are able to deliver much more than we promised!
So, let’s stay positive, and lead happier, and more fulfilling lives!
We often have the tendency to give up when the going gets tough. It’s very common to hear people say… “That’s impossible!”… “That’s too much to ask of me”… “I’m up to my ears in work, as it is”… “It’s too time consuming”… there are umpteen such excuses.
We fail to understand that if we want, really want, to stand out from the crowd and make a mark, we have to put in the extra effort. People only see the success that others have achieved, they don’t see the thousands of hours of hard work that has gone behind it.
Let’s take that extra step, let’s go the extra mile, let’s work the extra hour…to realize our goals!
