Commitment is more important than if-then

image

You may have been in a situation where both the options feel equally possible and suitable. We all go through such situations in life.
How to come to a decision that is the best one? Easy. Focus on your values. Think over the values that govern your behavior, and then take action.

Writing this in monsoon reminds me of an analogy that I used to witness almost every rainy day in my home as a young child. Back then, we used to commute through two-wheelers. Since it was a tedious task to do while it was raining, my father got a raincoat for all of us. So that we all could reach our destinations pumped up with energy and in a presentable state. Never ever did this idea cross the mind of either of us that my father should bunk his work, my sisters should bunk their colleges and coaching, or I should bunk my school. We all had this mission very clear, rather sub-consciously imbued into us that we needed to keep our priorities straight. Since we all were committed to being the masters of our own destiny instead of letting the uncontrollable situations control us, here the weather, we also had a deep sense of accomplishment and contentment.

Fast forward to today, if we see the great population delivering abundant value in their work, all have this common attribute: they are focused on doing great work, irrespective of what the outer circumstances hold for them. This is the reason they are successful. All the things in life that we adore, that we rather deserve, do not just show up. They have to be proactively cultivated in order to be experienced. Without planting and watering the seeds, only weeds grow. And I am sure you want your garden to be blessed with the finest of plants.

Let us look at the following steps which may help us in becoming a superhuman committed to action and results, which affects everyone around her:

1.      Make a note of your priorities and look at them every morning and evening. Put them up on your bathroom mirror. Thus, when you are confronted with a challenging situation, you know that getting a raincoat and stepping up into the game is the best option instead of sitting back.

2.      Be the CEO of your job. Take 100 percent responsibility for the task that you are delivering. In a football match, if a team loses because of the most of the members, even though the star player performed well, if the star player is the CEO of his art, he will think of the things he could do, so that the team performs better next time.

3.      Be all about giving. The world is a lesser place if we have not played our potential. The society is less happy if we did not deliver onto out values. The kids did not learn enough if you did not model excellence. With all this in mind, you will focus on your commitments instead of your fears. You will be unstoppable. And you will amaze the world with your excellence.
In the end, I would leave you with a question: Are you satisfied with the world operates today? I know I am not. So that is why this blog is an attempt to make the world a little better, consistently and givingly. What are you going to do in order to make the world better?

This is true power

image

Power is utilisation of the infinite resources that we have.

Power is building your life based upon systems instead of leveraging willpower for your tasks.

Power is staying true to your vision and dreams so that you can show all of us what awesomeness means.

Power is letting go of the need to control, once you have done the best that you were supposed to do.

Power is opening up to the small gifts in your life like the smile of a child or the wind blowing across your face, because experiencing these is what truly matters.

Power is knowing the priorities of your life and devoting 90 percent of your time to them, so that you make all of us better, by making the world better through your work.

Power is also having the grit to succeed and use every apparent failure as the foundation stone of success, because it is.

What is awesomeness unlimited?

image

When you consider your life as a blessing, it turns into one. Even though there may be roadblocks, as there must be, in order to make your way, every single one of us does have a unique purpose for placement on this planet.

When you make yourself all about giving outrageous value and paying regard to all the people around you, that is what bounces back in your life.

When you let go of the anger, the fear and the blame, they let go of you.

When you be patient and disciplined towards your craft, results simply sprout up, quicker than you think.

And when you open your true self up to the world to be vulnerable, possibilities open up in ways you could have never imagined.

This is awesomeness unlimited.

What to do when you feel hurt?

image

As we walk through life, we are going to get hurt. As the human being in all of us wants to expand the love that is inherent in all of us, we will end up creating the results that we did not desire. That is a part of the entire process called life.

Falling down is the most important part in learning to walk, if we know how to get back up. So what to do when we fail miserably in a situation in life? Ask yourself the Oprah question: “What is this trying to teach me?” There is no situation in life that is not meant for benefitting us. Sometimes we just do not recognize the lesson draped in it and so, we end up creating the same mistake twice or even more than that. Even though you put in your best efforts to make the situation a success, there is a life lesson for you always, and as you recognize it, you come out of it stronger and more peaceful.

Also, as you see different successful people on the planet going through successive successes, do not mistake that by lack of difficulties. Rather, it is the courage to face the difficulties that slowly turned the feelings of being upset into the feelings of comfort in challenges.

So dear reader, congratulate yourself that you have been heartbroken and therefore feeling upset, because you had the courage to go to the new, to know yourself better, and when you remember the following, feeling upset at the time of difficulty will slowly be transmitted into transcending the difficulty:

1. Gratitude is the cure for uncertainty and fear. Most of the things that we have around us are luxuries for a majority of the population. As you cultivate gratitude for the little things in your life, solving the difficult situation in life will become less intense and clearer.

2. Think of the ways you could have done better in a challenging situation. Even though you did your best, there are no limits to getting better. Once we learn to let go of the urge to justify ourselves, avenues open up that would lead to nothing but our growth, both emotionally and psychologically.

3. Think different. In order to think different, expose your mind to different ideas. In order to expose your mind to different ideas, take different actions. This means that if you have never read a book, go read a book that tells you how to accelerate your mindset. If you read 10 books a week, read 12 this time. As you expose your mind to novel ideas, you will develop the strength and the power to come out stronger.

4. Finally, please remember what Napoleon Hill said: “Every adversity has the seed of equivalent or greater benefit.” You just need to change your lens through which you see the world. Because through its obstacles, life is simply polishing us in its small, generous ways.

If these suggestions and ideas have been helpful to you, share them with a friend who needs to get out of feeling of feeling upset. Maybe one share of yours changes the direction of their lives entirely.

Experience versus action

As we go through life, there are going to be several defining moments. Very amazing, and some that break our hearts wide open. Gigantic fun, and the ones that lead us to tears. Isn’t adversity the price of success and fulfilment? Aren’t the very things that break our hearts are the ones that open them?

Then why do we not experience the feelings, the emotions that are tied with us in every moment of our existence?

There is incredible joy and learning in being the senior and not knowing everything, in being vulnerable, because that vulnerability is going to make you explore the parts of the world you never knew existed.

Amazing pleasure comes from not directing kids on their every move, rather than learn from the wealth of information, fun, questions and knowledge that we are exposed to while being with them.

Being committed a mistake in a relationship, it takes power and courage to take the initiative to correct that, by having difficult conversations.

Having stepped into the world by chance or by default, it is our primary objective to experience all the emotions we face as human beings, not to take action to eliminate the less pleasant ones, rather using the knowledge and skills to transcend them so that we experience joy and happiness as a part of our being.image

Results leave clues

Having great desires and passions are very essential and superawesome. Consider this:

Money will come to you when you are ready for it. Greatness will be reflected in your outer world once it is a part of your inner identity.
What I mean is, that if you want to be successful in any area of your life, develop successful habits. Right now.image

How to grow exponentially in all areas of your life

image

The great human beings that we all are crave for growth. This is the most exciting part of our existence that makes us so beautifully unique. “Progress equals happiness,” as Tony Robbins said, requires sustained and continuous effort on the part of every individual who wants to progress.

More than the effort, deliberate progress is a necessity, because if you are not moving forward, you are definitely moving backward and therefore landing yourself into troubles that you do not have the wits to deal with. Why not spend time and energy on growing yourself so that when the waves of la difficulty try to toss you, you are already equipped with your surfing practices.

Please consider the following practices in order to grow in your life, no matter where you are:

1. Moving ahead is always easy for light matter. What that means is, let go of the people who have wronged you. Forgive them, so that you become lighter and a happier person. This does not mean they were right, nor are you holding them unaccountable for, rather you are simply getting rid of the emotional bondage that had been holding you back. So that you can be free, and move ahead with the fabulous future and present that is waiting for you to be present.

2. Invest on the right things. Do you ever remember a time when you went to a world class hotel room and your life was never the same in terms of your thinking, your productivity and your energy. Or remember a time when you ate the wrong foods and the next morning you were feeling out of energy and enthusiasm. Both the above cases required investment. Focus to invest your money on the experiences that yield superb return on investment. Then see the magic in your life propelling you forward.

3. Move with givers not takers. Everyone in the world fits into either of the above categories. Mindsets are always programmed by the programs being input into the operating system called mind. If you spend time with givers, in terms of bliss, enthusiasm, peace, that is your life will be populated with. If you spend time with takers, trying to make the best of their advantage, your life will be a reflection of that. All the successful people have this one common criterion: their life is free of takers and filled with givers. So that they become one of those, and change the world.

4. Lastly, know that there is no end point to growth. Once you reach the goals you set for yourself, it is your responsibility as a human being, to set another set of audacious goals, so that your forward momentum never ceases, rather only gains more speed.

With all due respect, hope these ideas were instrumental in helping you out make the forward leap, so that you may witness fabulous growth.
