Introducing change in your life first requires you to admit that you need that change. Acceptance is a must.
Then, to implement it as a part of your lifestyle, you cannot say, I’ve changed today. The right answer is The path towards change starts today, the process is long, but I’ll keep at it and make sure the outcome is different from what it currently is.
What needs to be changed?
That is up to you to decide. Ponder over your life, where are you lacking, what needs to be different, what is it that you are not able to get, focus on that.
There’s a lot of negativity in this world, especially with the access of social media platforms in the palm of people’s hands.
People hate each other, they want to feel superior than others, their ego doesn’t let them grow with others. The entitlement is enormous to create a rift with the close ones. With the internet, people now have the power to spread negativity in a matter of seconds – one hate comment here, one death threat there, there’s no healthy discussions in most places.
People aren’t kind to each other. When were you last walking and someone smiled at you or waved you a Good Morning? People all, but care about themselves. All busy, chasing something.
The ratio of people with the light, with the change is less at the moment, but we can change that one person at a time.
Be the light!
The World needs more of that!
The World will become a better place because of that!
People will feel more happier because of that!
Change starts with You and it spreads! Even if not, you’d still make a difference and you’ll notice it.
If you have a cranky start to your day, the entire day’s mood will be the same. Have a positive start to your day and the entire day’s mood will be positive.
How? These six morning rituals will help you kickstart the day the right way – they take time to become a part of your daily routine – however, once they turn into habits, the results start appearing.
A. Stay away from your screen for the first 90 minutes
When you pick up your phone the first thing when you wake up, instead of enjoying the morning, instead of filling your mind with positive thoughts, instead of being grateful, you are filling it with unneeded information at the time.
Also, how important can any notification be, work is priority, but it starts after a specific time; and if it’s not work-related, then what’s the point of checking all the notifications at that moment.
B. Make your Bed
There are multiple reasons to making your bed first thing in the morning, one of them is accomplishing tasks. When you accomplish this micro task, you’ve set the mood to accomplish more of such micro tasks in the day and make the day a successful one.
The second reason is habits creation; when you do it on a daily basis – it quickly becomes a habit. It also allows you to instill such similar habits one-by-one in order to improve your lifestyle.
C. Be Grateful
The first thoughts of your day, when you wake up, should be positive. Think positive, have a positive approach to your day and more importantly, be grateful for everything you have and everything that you’re thankful for.
Gratitude fills you with positivity and happiness – you feel thankful for eveything that you get to do, that you get to be, that you have.
Every morning, be grateful for at least three things that are important to you and think about it for a while before you begin with your day.
D. Drink a Glass of Water
Once you’ve made your bed, and with gratitude on your mind, the next important thing is to have a glass of water in the morning.
It, of course, hydrates you after a good sleep, secondly, flushes out your body toxins and also gives your brain fuel for the day.
This goes without saying that you should keep hyrating yourself on a hourly basis and have sufficient amount of water over the day.
E. Go for a Run
This is a choice for people, whether to go in the morning or in the evening – but it’s crucial to have some exercise during the day.
Preferably, morning is recommended because it kickstarts your day like nothing else, you’re charged for the entire day and you’re pumped up for your next task of the day.
Also, it not only gives you a physical boost, but it has an impact mentally too, helps you to clear out your mind, your stress and helps you to think more clearly.
F. Plan out your Day
Usually, people do this task the day before, but if you like to keep everything on a day-to-day basis, then you should definitely plan out your day in the morning only.
Have a clear outlook of your day, what needs to be done and what needs to be prioritised and not do things on the go, because that definitely doesn’t work out long-term.
Every day of your life is important, and every day needs to be utilised at its best. In order to do so, the best way forward is to have a good morning routine and have a positive and fresh start to your day.
The film is about a man who complains about God too often is given Almighty powers to teach him how difficult it is to run the world.
The character Bruce Nolan played by Jim Carrey often complains about God when things don’t go the way he wanted it to be, and keeps asking God for a miracle.
The above quote sums up the movie in a beautiful manner, where the character of God played by Morgan Freeman says that people expect others, and quite often the Higher Power to provide things to them just because they ask.
In this process, they quite often forget that they have the power to bring the change they seek themselves.
Be the change for yourself and introduce it into your life, have the right mindset for what you ask, focus on it and keep working towards it and the results shall appear.

If entrepreneurship is something that flows within you, then you wouldn’t want to do anything else; there is no backup.
There’s a certain aura of doing it on your own, no matter how small or big, that makes you want to do it even more. The vision, the passion, the energy, the struggles, the journey is so incredible; you just love it.
When you create your company, it becomes your baby, your child; you want to grow it, you want to nurture it and take care of it. The words may seem out of context, but it’s not, it’s the truth.
No matter how many backups you create, if entrepreneurship is within you, you’ll do whatever it takes, start ‘x’ number of companies until you make it, but you shall keep doing so. #Facts
Graduated in May 2015. Zazz Media started in December 2015. What happened in those six months? – The entrepreneurial spirit always existed within me. I knew; eventually, I’d build something – although, I didn’t possess the answers for the what, when and how.
Coming from our stressful education system, teaching us all but the same principles, those six tension-free months was a blessing! No responsibilities, no plans, no routine! Nothing valuable happened during that period. Although, in hindsight, I’m happy I took that decision because that brought me to where I am today!
Proceeding down this path gave me the push, the energy to accomplish something. That realisation was important! – It’s up to you, whether you’d like to take a break or not. However, remember this – If you can take a break, do it for yourself. Please don’t rush into decisions, because you got pressured into it. When that happens, you don’t make choices out of happiness.
Who are the Joneses? “Keeping up with the Joneses is an idiom in many parts of the English-speaking world referring to the comparison to one’s neighbour as a benchmark for social class or the accumulation of material goods. To fail to “Keep up with the Joneses” is perceived as demonstrating socio-economic or cultural inferiority.” #Wikipedia // Consciously or sub-consciously, all of us are trying to keep up with the “Joneses”. Now is the time we realise the mistakes we’ve been making! It shouldn’t matter to you what the others are doing if you are satisfied with your everyday life! We fall for worldly possessions because we see someone else accomplish something and now we want the same.
Someone else means your friends, your colleagues, and even those you follow on social media. The current trend is tied in with posting every expensive stuff you buy or do on social media. Now more than ever, it’s about telling others what you are doing rather than for your self-interest!
Ask yourself three questions the next time you do anything, 1. Am I buying this product/service because of self-interest? 2. Is this bringing value to me? 3. Do you care about other’s opinions?
Achieve stuff for yourself and not for others! Think about it and STOP NOW! The only loss is yours and not anyone else’s.
