What’s the value of a kind gesture?
It takes zero efforts to say something kind to another person – short, easy to speak and it’s not taking anything from you.
Yet, one kind gesture brings immense pleasure to the other person – you have just made their day, their month and you wouldn’t even realize it.
It might just be something that the person needed. Its impact would truly last a lifetime.
Be kind, spread kindness and witness the magic! ❤️
The most important thing in your life is to be yourself.
Being yourself keeps you authentic, keeps you self-aware about who you are and what do you want, and more importantly, keeps you happy.
Through the platform of Social Media, people are creating a different image of themselves, flossing, flaunting just to impress others, and to create that social image.
In reality, being miserable because they don’t know who they are anymore.
Being yourself keeps you sane, keeps you real and keeps you trustful.
You are unique in your own way, your characteristics are your strengths and they define who you are – instead of faking emotions in the virtual or the real world, face who you are and be proud of who you are.
Book In Focus : Daily Inspiration from the Monk who sold his Ferrari
Author : Robin Sharma
Irrespective of having read ‘The Monk who sold his Ferrari’ or not, this book is a deep dive into the important lessons shared in that one – divided into tiny bits of inspirational material, one per day, in its entirety covering 365 days of the year.
This is one of those picks which aren’t supposed to be read altogether, but, one per day, depending on what date it is.
Why should you read the current day’s bit and not the ones before or after? Well, you should focus on the day you’re living, be in the present and not focus on the past or the future.
Coming back to the book, reading it everyday and also, at the same time, sharing it with others was a blessing in disguise, because the daily bits focused on such important elements of life – that it made it that much more valuable having focused on one bit – learning it, understanding it, implementing it – and then, focusing on the next bit on the next day.
That is how I’d summarize this book, it’s a good read, one that goes on for an entire year, and can also be repeated every other year too – because why not, those lessons have importance in our lives on a day-to-day.
This is also a perfect time to pick up this book, with 1st Jan coming along and you could then read it exactly for a year, start to end.
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.
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?
“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.
“What makes you different or weird—that’s your strength.” – Meryl Streep
Everyone’s chasing to be perfect, without realizing that perfect doesn’t exist.
What makes us, humans, different from each other, and at the same time, makes us unique, are our imperfections!
Those imperfections that make us” different” or “weird” is actually our strength – then why should we change it.
It makes us unique in our own way.
Love them! Cherish them! Flaunt them!
Know thy imperfections – because those make you perfect in your own way! ❤️
