Rejection. Losing. Failure. Nobody strives for them. Do you? No athlete sets out to lose, no entrepreneur’s goal is bankruptcy. But as if an act of divine mercy, there are positives to be found in the negatives. In fact, successful people often preach as Gospel the value found in failure. Denis Waitley said it well - “Failure should be our teacher, not our undertaker. Failure is a delay, not defeat. It is a temporary detour, not a dead end. Failure is something we can avoid only by saying nothing, doing nothing and being nothing.” The mark of a successful person lies in their response to negative situations. They lick their wounds but stay on the battlefield. They find strength in their scars.
It's been a while since I've shared my "love-cards" It's always good to keep some reminders close to us. I believe we should stay close to anything that makes us glad we are alive! Shared this amazing piece of writing on my Instagram yesterday, and couldn't resist sharing it here. Also, if you aren't following me on the gram, follow me now! Here is a beautiful reminder to all of you. Written with love and inspiration.
Make it your mission to make someone happy! Winter always seems to bring back all good and bad memories. The holiday season and the New Year! Sometimes, they make us nostalgic and that's what I'm feeling right now. Everything is starting to look grey and I feel blue. Yes, even I'm human and I don't everytime be positive and mind glowingly awesome. I don't feel bad sharing about this either. It's a natural phase, I suppose. So now, simply sitting here and feeling nostalgic and weary, I've decided to share some joy so that my heart smiles remembering this day and when I look at it this way, I'm already smiling. It makes me happy just to share more and more cheerfulness. Spreading more sunshine and warmth this cold season! Anyway, the reason behind my mood, I thought as I was feeling a little blue because of the on-going rubbish weather, I would try to make myself think of 25 things that would cheer me up. Doing this task really brought me out of my funk and if it can do that for me, it might be able to help someone else feeling a little down. So, here are my 25 things to help you spread some joy and happiness to others around you:
Hi everyone! Before the weekend kicks in, and we all enjoy and laze around all cozy and comfortable in this cold, COLD climate, I want to share this writing which is really close to my heart. Like really! This is a topic which has been taught and passed down by my father. My Papa is a huge Warren Buffet fan and I too was fascinated with the life and life lessons of the great Mr. Buffet from a young age. I've read so much about this man that I can practically give a speech about him Lol. Anyway, I'm sharing with you what I think I learned (after practically using it in my own life) from Warren Buffet. I sincerely invite you to ask/think some really important questions of your Life, as I did. Stay with me on this one.
How is that some people are able to always finish what they start? What differentiates the finishers, so to speak, from those that quit and give up? The difference lies in the loss of motivation and our inherent desire to seek pleasure as opposed to pain. The fact is, when a goal is new, it’s exciting. We get amped and juiced, breathing new air into our lives as we decide to go after that lofty dream. But what happens over time is no surprise. We lose that initial zeal. We hit some roadblocks. We reach some plateaus. And ultimately, we give up. So why is it so hard to finish what you start?
