Have Patience

Have Patience

We are always in a rush to chase something or the other in life.

And, we want it now! Not later, now!

If you put in the efforts or the work today, the results should appear by tomorrow! That’s become the common mentality now.

We have forgotten the word ‘patience.’

“Patience is bitter, but its fruit is sweet.” – Aristotle.

In order to enjoy life,
in order to enjoy what we want or need,
in order to enjoy the process
– we need to start being patient.

That’s the only answer with which we can be
happy now;
enjoy life and
be satisfied.

If not, then there would be just the rush of wanting or chasing one thing after the other, not having the desired results, being left with disappointments and unhappiness.

The choice is yours – be patient with life and enjoy everything that you do or just the opposite.

Sharing your goals with others!

Sharing your goals with others!

What have you heard about sharing your goals with others?

Well, let me tell you what the “society” says.

Don’t share them with anyone. Keep it to yourself.

To think of it, why is it said so?

Because someone else will do it before you?

Because someone having this knowledge will hinder your progress?

Well, my thoughts resonate the other way round. I don’t think that the world should work like this.

I’m all-in about sharing your goals with others.

Why do I think so?

Firstly, at times, your goals and ambitions are not clearly defined. When you share, you end up talking about it more and more.

Because of this, you tend to understand more clearly what you want to do, why do you want to it and you’re able to streamline the process more easily.

Secondly, the more you share, two things tend to happen – one, people start supporting you and pushing you more towards achieving it.

This also leads to real-time support too, in the form of partnerships and collaborations, which wouldn’t have happened organically in the first place.

More importantly, if your goal is something worth achieving and you share the journey behind it, others also get inspired to set a goal for themselves.

In my opinion, everyone should share their goals – be open about it – if you’re confident with what you’re doing and more importantly, why you’re doing it, then neither anyone else nor you should have any problems with it.

Life is about experimentations!

Life is about experimentations!

Life is about experimentations, from one thing to another, whether you know it or not, it’s all about experimentations!

You never know what will work and what will not, you never know what might interest you and what might not.

There’s never a pre-defined answer for anything, there’s only a pre-conceived notion which is cleared after you experiment and find the answer on your own.

With life, you can never just stick with one thing – you might agree, it gets boring. Experimenting to find out new things, to grow, to evolve is the only solution.

Ikigai – the Japanese secret to a long and happy life (Book Review)

Ikigai – the Japanese secret to a long and happy life (Book Review)

Usually in the midst of reading a book, I’ve already chosen the next one to read and a similar situation occurred with this one, where I’d decided to read this one, books in advance.

Written by Hector García and Francesc Miralles, Ikigai is a brilliant read, based on a Japanese concept to living a long and happy life.

In the most basis terms, Ikigai is about finding something that you love, that also makes you happy, that is also commercially viable and that has a market for it. Well, it’s not all about professionalism, but applied to your personal life and doing something everyday so your day is occupied with things you like to do.

However, to understand our life, especially from the work point of view, Ikigai is an excellent concept to apply and learn the answers we were looking for.

When you’re happy, when you love what you’re doing, you’re able to do it on a daily basis and for an endless amount of time – the more happy you are, the more fulfilled you feel, and the longer you’re able to live with no boredom/ emptiness / hollow feelings to think about. The concept of retirement doesn’t exist in Ikigai, because if you aren’t doing anything, then what are you doing with your life.

Well, if you’re looking for answers, especially from a different perspective than what is seen or taught in the West, then you should definitely pick this one up and understand life from a different angle to what you’re originally living.

The book is a definite gamechanger, if you want it to be. #RTHReviews

Ruler of Your Destiny!

Ruler of Your Destiny!

You are the ruler of your destiny – you get to decide when do you want to start your journey, or if you’d like to change your paths and begin the journey for another dream.

Goals change, dreams change, people change.

What if you were doing something for a long time and suddenly you decide that your interests lie elsewhere.

Does the “society” stop you from doing that?

There’s no age limits as to when one should start, when one can change their plans, when one can start planning a new dream and focusing on that.

As C. S. Lewis has said, “You’re never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream”.

Whatever makes you happy, you do that – doesn’t matter how young or old you are – there are no society benchmarks to conquer.

• What Movies Taught Us #6 – Rocky •Movie In Focus : Rocky
Starring Sylvester Stallone

Most of us have seen Rocky or at least, heard about the movie or the character… So without going into the specifics of the storyline, here are a few things to focus on –

  • You need to have a definite goal in mind.

Only when you have a ‘definite’ goal to focus on, then you know it’s process and the way to accomplish it. Without a set target, the efforts would be in vain!

  • With the goal in mind, and the mindset needed, you need to put in the work daily.

Hard-work, efforts and daily practice, the three factors needed to achieve anything you want.

  • Any and all dreams are achievable

There’s no goal that isn’t achievable and that cannot be set as your target – or so others might say. However, if it’s on your mind, then you should pursue or try pursuing it, no matter what – that’s the beauty of a dream.
