What’s Next? The question on our minds, at every point of time, no matter what we are doing.
This isn’t just about work, it involves everything we do, every day.
While we are doing something, we are constantly thinking, what are we going to do next!? 👀
You see the problem, right? In this quest for what’s next, we aren’t enjoying the present moment at all, we aren’t enjoying the process of whatever we are doing.
I realized this, and now I want to make amends. I want to feel this moment, I want to enjoy it and remember it.
“I have decided to stick with love. Hate is too great a burden to bear.” – Martin Luther King, Jr
How does hate help anyone? How does anyone benefit from hate?
Spewing hatred towards someone only fills your own mind with negativity, not anyone else’s.
Your hate doesn’t bring the other person down, but yourself! And why would you put yourself in that position?
What’s the other option?
To love all, no matter what! Spread Love whenever, wherever!
For you, for your mind, you do the right thing – be kind, be grateful, have empathy towards the other person and spread love – you’re putting your mind in a position where nothing else should affect you!
In every situation, you have two options – focus on the positive or focus on the negative.
Most of the times, we look at the downside – this shouldn’t have happened with me/ why did this happen / am I the only one / what more can I do/ why am I not getting anything
This leads to unhappiness, self-doubt, fixed mindset, negative thoughts, negative actions.
How can you be happy then? How can you have more? How can you grow?
There’s only one answer.
• Focus on the Positive •
You can learn to always see the good in situations, in people. You can cherish that you get the opportunity to do anything in the first place. You can be grateful for the things you have. You can be happy with everything that life has given you.
You have the power to do all this.
Focusing on the positive allows you to do this.
It breathes a new life into you, a new mindset, fresher thoughts, positive actions, a new you.
Why wouldn’t anyone want that?
The choice is yours.
Only the achievements are compared, not the goals or the aspirations or the journey or the day-to-day life!
It’s simply astonishing how the society works!
The best way to move forward in life is to follow your Journey and stay in your lane!
Can’t get any simpler than that!
Celebrate others successes instead of dwelling over them!
Support them in their failures instead of enjoying them!
To top it off, walk with others instead of trying to trample them!
Who we are.
Who we become.
What we think.
Where does it all come from?
Certainly not from a bunch of books taught to us during school or college.
We are an amalgamation of every person we meet in our lifetime, every experience we have, every activity we are a part of, our conversations, what we read, what we observe around us.
It all affects us.
We are a sum total of all that.
Are you letting external or internal factors affect your life?
Either or both have an impact, it’s up to you, your choices define the impact.
You can be in control of your destiny.
Define these factors and taking the first step towards changing them is the first step.
Life is so simple, yet we complicate it.
We twist it with other people’s judgements and opinions; we confuse it with keeping materialistic goals at the benchmark to become successful; we hinder its progress by living a life we don’t want to live.
And for what?
