The longer I live, the more I realize the impact of ATTITUDE on life.
Attitude, to me is more important than the past, than education, than money, than circumstances, than failures, than successes, than what other people think or say or do.
It is more important than appearance, giftedness, or skill.
It will make or break a company, a church, a school, a home.
The remarkable thing is we have a choice every day regarding the attitude we will embrace for that day.
We cannot change our past.
We cannot change the fact that people will act in a certain way.
We cannot change the inevitable.
The only thing we can do is play on the one string we have, and that is our attitude.
I am convinced that life is 10% what happens to me and 90% how I react to it.
And so it is with you, we are in charge of our ATTITUDE.
I know the easy option is to keep waiting until you are ‘ready’ but it’s going to get to a point where you realise that ‘someday’ is today and that there is no right time.
Ignore the fear of failure and jump when you need to.
It’s better to fail than to not try at all.
Love yourself when you make a mistake, say the wrong thing, when you fail after trying your hardest, when you forget to do something, and when you talk too much.
You are going to make mistakes.
Instead of hating yourself for those mistakes,
choose to learn from your failures and LOVE YOURSELF anyway.
If you tell a skiier to don’t lose balance or don’t get hit by a tree, they definitely will. So their trainer usually tells them to follow the path & nothing more.
Our Human brains are so stupid that we can’t comprehend the NEGATIVE.
If i tell you to not think about an elephant, you can’t follow that one.
Didn’t you just think about an elephant right right now?
Life is like that & most people are exactly like that.
The people who worry too much about failure/betrayal/getting cheated/behaving bad are the ones who usually do all those negative things as their first line of defence.
And later overthinking makes everything worse with time.
Just become confident & stay consistent on your journey, i believe you can do that.
Confident & consistent with your thoughts/mindset.
Confident & consistent with communication/behaviour.
Confident & consistent with your lifestyle/habit/choices/goals.
Confident & consistent with the way you live.
You don’t need different stories for different people.
In short, you don’t need that negativity to prosper inside you.
Follow the path of light. Life is fun, let it flourish.
Success is not built on success.
It’s built on failure.
It’s built on frustration.
Sometimes its built on catastrophe.
Relationships between family, friends, significant others, and colleagues are complicated and full of learning experiences.
Nobody comes into this world knowing everything.
We all go through different experiences, make mistakes, have successes, and then make more mistakes that we can learn from.
The ability to trust and listen to the people in your life is the foundation all healthy relationships are built on.
While talking to friends, make sure you are really listening to what they have to say and aren’t distracted by something else.
You owe that to them and you would want the same in return.
Trust is a bond between two people that is found only when they are able to listen and understand where the other person is coming from.
That to me is the only key to friendships and relationships.
6 RULES TO KICK ASS IN LIFE:
1. Know that your only competition is who you were yesterday.
2. Earn, save and invest before you spend.
3. Avoid negative people, life is too short.
4. If you don’t go after what you want, you will never get it.
5. See failure as a beginning, not an end.
6. Our habits decide our future, remain consistent with what you do in life.
6 months of hardcore focus and alignment can put you 5 years ahead in life.
Don’t underestimate the power of consistency and desire.
You have what it takes to become the best that you can be.
Don’t ever doubt yourself.
Harness your power.
Exceed your expectations.
CONSISTENCY ALWAYS WINS.
People never understand “what you want to do” is always connected to “what you need to do”.
Suppose i want to be an engineer, i need to study engineering.
Suppose i want to a writer/musician/athlete, i need to learn & practice writing/music/sports.
Suppose i want to get fit, i need to workout.
What you want to do doesn’t make any sense till you aren’t following what you need to do first.
This is the major reason most people stay unhappy & blame others for their failures.
This one tiny mindset change can drastically evolve your life in a year.
NEEDS FIRST, WANTS NEXT.
(This movie trailer got nothing to do with the post above. My first real full-time job was software developer before i switched to data analytics field. I know where we are heading with time, our world isn’t going bad as this trailer shows. But the way technology is advancing, who knows what’s coming after hundred years!! Anyways, there are no boundaries for imagination.)
Eleven meaningful truths/lessons on life:
1. Average human life is relatively short.
2. You will only ever live the life you create for yourself.
3. Being busy doesn’t mean being productive.
4. Some kind of failure always occurs before success. And both success & failure can be equally amazing.
5. Actions without intentions are like walking without using legs, doesn’t make sense.
6. You don’t have to wait for an apology to forgive other people. There’s a tendency of CHEAP, it keeps getting CHEAPER with time.
7. Some people are simply the wrong match for you. Keep checking who’s coming for good time & who’s coming with good energy!!
8. It’s not other people’s job to LOVE you; it’s yours.
9. What you own is not who YOU are, it’s about how you purpose what you have.
10. Everything changes for the better.
11. Forever takes forever to build & behold. (Not my words).
Never regret being a good person to the wrong people.
Your behavior says everything about you,
and their behavior says enough about them.
