Why is failure looked down upon by the “society”?
Failure makes us who we are – it makes us grow and improve as a better version of yourself – it makes us learn from our mistakes – it upgrades us to a new level.
Without failure, we wouldn’t grow to a higher level – we wouldn’t feel accomplished if we hadn’t failed in the first place.
That’s the beauty of failure – a few people get to experience it – but without it, we wouldn’t be where we are today.
Then, why is it looked down upon – it shouldn’t be – we should we proud to have experienced it – because it was necessary to overcome it to become who we are.
Imagine how much of this time is spent by you thinking about the past.
About your past decisions, about the steps taken, how you would’ve done something differently.
Its so easy to think about all of this – it’s easy because you can only waste your time thinking about it, you cannot change anything.
That wasted time is taking time out of your present, and that pondering over isn’t letting you decide your present and your future.
“Don’t let yesterday take up too much of today.” – Will Rogers
What’s gone is gone, let’s focus on today, let’s focus on making tomorrow better, let’s focus on making the changes that we can make today that will form our future and also be grateful for every decision previously taken, that has brought us to where we are today.
What makes you happy?
What do you feel passionate about?
What is it that you’re willing to do that makes you feel satisfied?
If you can answer that, you should definitely do that.
We’re here to live one life. Why not make it worthwhile?
Why settle down for something we don’t like or why struggle?
Sure, the other path might be difficult, may have obstacles but wouldn’t the journey be amazing – because it is what you love? Wouldn’t you be happy every single moment, every single day?
You have a choice.
It’s up to you.
Do more of what makes you happy.
I legit sucked at writing anything. My marks in school clearly defined that. Whether it came to writing a formal letter to our School Principal or caption writing for the clients, it was difficult to cope with, every time.
However, when I knew what to write, along with a lot of practice and mistakes, you can improve at anything and I improved at this.
After 250+ blog posts, various articles and ‘n’ number of posts created on my various profiles, I’ve finally overcome it.
Next on my list is to overcome my fear of looking at the camera lens and speaking!
All you require is a bit of confidence, practice and not to look at others and get worried with what they are doing! Also, remember that they started way before you did.
Is there anything that’s on your mind?
Whether you have a vision for the future, or you have set a massive goal for yourself, or you’re doing anything out of the ordinary – it always seems a bit difficult at first, in your head.
But, do you know that it always seems impossible in other people’s minds – very rarely would you get a supportive opinion, in situations like these.
Usually, its statements like, “it’s not possible at all” or “why are you wasting your time on this?”
As Nelson Mandela clearly states, “It always seems impossible until it’s done.”
It’s only when the job is done, when the mission is accomplished, does it seem possible to others.
Always remember that you need to have that will-power, that mindset, that hunger within you to get it done – you cannot expect it from others.
You do you!
• What Songs Taught Us #12 – Believer •
Song In Focus : Believer
Artist : Imagine Dragons
Listening to the song makes you think that someone is sharing their story through the song, which may be true, but it definitely has a deeper meaning to it.
It portrays the pain in every person’s life and the experiences that one gets to learn from those pains.
Every experience makes you look at things differently, changes you a little, and at the same time, makes you better than before.
This doesn’t mean one should look for more pains in their lives, but it means that instead of looking at the negative aspects in those situations, look at the positive too – when if you wouldn’t have experienced that, you wouldn’t have learnt something at all.
Give it a listen and see whether you can relate to this lesson or not! #WhatSongsTaughtUs
“The mind is everything. What you think you become.” – Buddha
Mindset is Everything.
Whether it’s your routine, or your work, or your personal life, or your goals, your dreams, everything revolves around your mindset.
You need to have the right kind of mindset to move forward in life, to set the right rhythm amongst all the phases of your life, to be happy/ satisfied.
That process starts from your thoughts. Your thoughts define everything in your life.
What you think, how you think, why you think – its all important – it sets the baseline – it defines your actions and your executions.
Ultimately, you become what you think.
Which is why it’s said that you need to have control of your mind, control of your thoughts, control of that thought structure – Mindset is the most important thing in your life.
