The date is August 3, 2026

The date is August 3, 2026. 5 Years from Today. You imagine today is that day. Just visualize it!

Now, ask yourself the following questions…

Do you want to be mentally healthy?
Do you want to be physically healthy?
Do you want to be free of all ailments?
Do you want a positive voice in your head?
Do you want to have less anxiety and/or less stress?
Do you want to be satisfied or feel fulfilled in life?
Do you want to have fewer problems in your life?
Do you want to evolve to a higher version than what you were 5 years ago?

In order to say ‘YES‘ to those questions 5 years from today, the work for it starts TODAY.

Your today’s actions may not have an impact today, but they definitely have an impact ONE year from today, FIVE years from today, and TWENTY years from today.

The life you live today affects your future, no one else’s.

The three focus points of my life

The three focus points of my life

Mind. Body. Breath. The three most important aspects of our life. The three focus points of my life. Each of those areas plays an individual role in our lives. Moreover, in our lifetime, either beforehand or after, you have to start taking care or start paying attention to all those three areas. But here’s the important part, your mind, body, and breath play a role in each other’s areas as well. Your breath plays a part in the working of your mind and body. Your body plays a role in your mind and breath. Your breath plays a part in your mind and body. When one fails, all fail. When you work on one aspect, it has an impact on all three aspects.

Knowing that, understanding the advantages of working on those areas, understanding how those three aspects of our lives are interconnected, but also have an external impact on all areas of our life as well.

Whether it is how you live, how long you want to live, how well you want to live, what’s going on in your mind, is your mind well-fed, what is the voice inside your head telling you, how does your body regulate your energy, how often do the foods you eat cause a negative impact on your thoughts, on your day as well, how eating something nutritious immediately turns that scale, how is your breath affecting your actions, how is your food affecting your stress levels… These and more are questions that every individual should ask themselves… The sooner you start, the sooner you start seeing the results and the impact of these results on your life and the various external aspects of your life.

Mix all of this, with self-awareness, and I boiled down my life to three specific focus points and what do I need to about it, now, and how that affects my future. Thus, I focused on the following three areas… It took time, a lot of patience, and understanding, and experimentation, but eventually I realized the change once I started walking down that path.

1. I replaced the foods understanding their impact on my mind and body

2. I worked on the chemistry of my breath

3. I changed the voice in my head

All three individual areas of life, seem as if they don’t impact each other or the external aspects of our life, but they do, more than one can think of.
Replacing the foods helped not just my body, but also the health of my mind, and my breath. Working on my breath helped me realize how it impacts every moment of my life, how it impacts what I do in the very next moment, and how it’s signaling my emotions too. The voice in the head is the biggest work that can ever be done, one that is initially shaped by society’s prejudices, biases, and whatnot, and that’s how we grow up. But work on it, and that voice can become a positive, optimistic tone that helps you and pushes you to help others as well.

None of this has a destination though when you start working on it, it’s a lifetime work-in-progress, but every day you see the progress, and every tomorrow there’s an evolution waiting to happen.

Take a Minute

Take a Minute

Do you have a ton of personal tasks to do? Do you have work projects pending? Are you running around a lot?

More than your physical output, all of this organizational mess of our day-to-day puts a pressure on our mental output.

Right from our energy to the output of our emotions, to our time, everything takes a hit.

And at the moment when you think everything is up to the brim…

You must take a minute.

A minute for yourself.

A minute to settle down.

A minute to take back control of yourself.

A minute to get back to you and focus on what truly matters.

This could be a minute or several minutes, but take it without feeling the guilt, without feeling the pressure, without thinking of the consequences.

Sometimes all you need is that minute is to get back on track.

Pick your Battles

Pick your Battles

All of us, every day, have a ton of stuff to do, and there’s a limited period of time to do them.

In the midst of managing your time, trying to complete your tasks, give enough time to every sector of your life, there will be moments with others, with yourself, with some situations, where it may not go according to your expectations, or you may not be on the same page with a certain someone, or you might be in the wrong.

The point is, when these moments do occur, you have to pick your battles.

Give more than enough time to one particular thing and you take away the time from the other things… Time, energy and peace.

So when you have to pick your battles, you have to let go of your emotions, and you have to choose which conversation is worth arguing for, which outcome is worth fighting for, which situation requires more of you, and for others you just let go.

Not every situation is worth winning, not every situation is worth fighting for. At those times, you have to be smart enough to pick the right battles and move on from the rest.

These battles happen every day, some are happening with yourself too… But if you just hold onto one, then how will you live the rest of the day?

Embracing the Silence

Embracing the Silence

In a previous post here, I wrote about how we fill the silence in our lives with various things and why do we do it.

Having spoken about escaping silence and running away from it… What can one do to embrace that silence?

That golden silence which is going to unlock so many things in your life, that you didn’t want to face but now you want to… How do you embrace it now?

The first step is one of acceptance. No matter what is revealed to you in this silence, you will accept it and not run away from it. That mindset of acceptance is the biggest key to embracing silence.

Once you have the mindset, then there are two ways to embrace it…

One, you do a lot of self-reflection. Sit to think, journal your thoughts, go deeper into them and when you face those deeper, darker thoughts, and you go deeper and deeper into them and take away their power, then you embrace the silence.

The other way is to meditate. Practice meditating, sit for longer periods of time, go in deep meditations, let everything come to you, feel it, feel those moments, and embrace that silence.

Once you experience it, then you want it more. You feel its power and what it does to you.

Embrace the silence.

Filling the Silence

Filling the Silence

In order to escape the mind, we fill the silence with

– talking (more than usual)

– music (contextual) and/or consuming content in general

– activities that you don’t want to do

(or anything else that one might do to fill their silence)

Why do we do it though?

It’s only when we are scared of that silence. The deepest questions that you don’t think of lie in that silence. The answers you avoid lie in that silence. The truths you run away from lie in that silence.

Silence speaks volumes.

And that is why we run away from it. Because we don’t want to face it. That’s why we escape. Its feels better to escape your reality than to face it.

Facing it means to take action, to pause and look back, to accept your mistakes, to change your tomorrow, that requires change in thoughts and actions and that’s a lot of efforts.

Instead, we avoid the silence.

Rough Roads

Rough Roads

Rough Roads. Difficult Journeys. Hiccups. Everyone goes through such phases in life.

Such a phase teaches us the most important lessons, tests us in the toughest of times, and ensures whether we’re ready for the next step or not.

Has the rough road chosen us or have we chosen the rough road? That is surely debatable. But even if we willingly chose it, there must be a reason.

Such a phase is not understandable to ourselves, let alone others. But one can only assume that it gives a chance to strengthen ourselves, it gives us the opportunity to make decisions we otherwise wouldn’t have, it allows us to run when we are ready to run.

Often, you find a diversion towards a highway when you get out of the rough road.

Staying neutral is picking a side

Staying neutral is picking a side

There are two sides to a coin. For and against. People are on the either side of it, either for or against, and very rarely (if not, never) would you see everybody on just one end of the coin.

So, according to what is right to us, we pick a side and then voice our opinions towards it, or moreover live by that side. (now this applies to a numerous amount of things)

What happens when you don’t pick a side? When you choose to stay silent? When you want to stay neutral?

The bigger question is, is that possible?

If not by words, then by action, and if not by action, then by thought, everyone chooses a side.

Due to mainly fear, or with a lack of acceptance, or not wanting to be seen choosing a particular side, one stays neutral.

But, even in doing so they are choosing a side. But silently. And subconsciously. That neutrality is then counted towards wherever the majority is. Because that’s how it works.

Unless you state otherwise.

To dismiss or to accept?

To dismiss or to accept?

Whenever you receive any information, or you receive a contrasting opinion to your thought, you have two choices.

Either you dismiss it quickly and stick to what you know, whether it is right or wrong, whether it is accepted or not, or the second option is to accept this new information, to accept a counter opinion, to hear the other side and what they have to say.

Choosing the latter option widens your perspective, expands your viewpoint and helps you grow and evolve. Then you have the choice to change with this information or let your information change someone else (whichever is the right one).

New Perspectives, Thoughts, and Phases of Life

New Perspectives, Thoughts, and Phases of Life

Every individual has multiple phases in their lives, one that they look back to and ponder upon, when a new one begins.

There’s a perspective attached to every phase, of how you perceive things and how you react and respond to them.

Now, your daily thoughts (which decide your actions and outcomes) are all based on that perspective.

If your perspective on a topic is limited to something and you have decided to not look beyond, your thoughts will be as limiting as that and ultimately, that particular phase of your life is then lived in that manner.

Only if you want to outgrow yourself, reach that next level, must you expand your perspective of looking at things, thinking upon them from a broader viewpoint.

Hence, your thoughts will widen as well and because of cause and effect will your phase of life get affected in a positive and evolving manner as well.

These three areas are correlated and have a cause and effect impact on each other. To improve one, you must work on the other and the process is cyclical, which is then repeated to every phase of your life.

You don’t have to be busy all the time

You don’t have to be busy all the time

All our life we have been taught to be busy, either with work, or filling the gaps in between, just trying to do something or the other, often in the form of escapism.

The word ‘busy’ has been ingrained in our minds, so much so, that for anything that we do, be it watching a movie or scrolling on social media, we’d claim to be busy.

But, the reality of life is, in order to be free, in order to be more productive, in order to get more ideas, in order to relax, you don’t have to be busy all the time.

It’s in your ideal time when your brain is most active, it is that time when you’ll ideate more, you’ll think of your decisions to make, what do you want to do differently, what’s going right for you – that ideal time is your time.

Instead of focusing on being busy, focus on the opposite and notice the change it brings.

Doesn’t matter if I live for 90 years

Doesn’t matter if I live for 90 years

If an individual lives for say, 70 years or 90 years or even more, it sounds good to have lived that long.

But, life being an experience, it only matters if you have experienced life enough up till that point.

If you have lived the same life for a long amount of time, to not have experienced the thrill and satisfaction from it, then how does it matter how long does you live for?

That doesn’t mean you shouldn’t live that long. No. It means that life is about experiences, life is about satisfaction, life is about freedom, life is about emotions, if all of those things and more aren’t experienced, then it doesn’t matter whether we live for 20 years, 40 years, or a 100 years.

Some things are inevitable

Some things are inevitable

Irrespective of how prepared you are and how much you have planned, some things are inevitable.

Some things are bound to happen, no matter what you do and how much you do.

Whether good or not, whether in your favor or not, what is inevitable cannot be changed (may be delayed, at the most).

Some things are inevitable in life.

I lost 15 kgs in 6 months

I lost 15 kgs in 6 months

I lost 15 kgs in 6 months.

How?

Not because I wanted to lose weight fast, but because I wanted to live a better lifestyle than before.

Not because I wanted to look good, but because I wanted to feel good and feel those fabulous internal benefits of working out.

Not because I starved myself or tried fad diets, but because I knew it’s time to get rid of those foods that have harmful effects on the mind and body, that may taste good in the moment, but have not-so-good effects in the future.

A simple tweak of knowing the why, rather than the what and how.

A simple tweak of enjoying the process than the outcome.

That’s it. And that brought results.

Balancing your Life

Balancing your Life

Instead of constantly rushing towards work and focusing all your energy into it, why not balance it out and experience other areas and phases of your life as well?

Instead of wondering where did all that time go, why not create slots for everything you want to do in a particular day and live a balanced and experienced life?

Why not experience cooking? Why not experience organizing? Why not experience journaling? Why not experience meditation? Why not experience those things that you wanted to do outside of work?

Ultimately, life is an experience which we don’t want to miss out on.

Prioritizing your Tasks

Prioritizing your Tasks

All of us, on a day to day basis, have a ton of tasks to do. Those tasks could be at home tasks, or related to work, or growth, or learning, or anything else that you have to do.

And what usually ends up happening is, you get to tick off some of them at the end of the day, some were left off in the middle and some had to be postponed or delayed for the future.

Does that happen to you as well?

How can you then priortize your tasks and see to it that you do all of them?

Well the secret is, to priortize them based on the level of importance to you.

What do you feel is so important that it has to be done right now. And when you plan your tasks in that manner, then you can do everything that was urgent for you and those that you had to do right now.

Also, to add to that, the fewer tasks you plan everyday, the more you can check at the end of the day. You can only do so much in the time you’re awake, then why not just schedule a few tasks rather than planning a ton of them, only to delay them for the next day and the next day and to then get disappointed that you’re not able to check off the things you had to do.

Having fewer things to do and to do them in the order of how important they are to you is how you prioritize your day, your life and make sure each day you’re able to do as much as you can.

Putting a full stop at the end of a sentence

Putting a full stop at the end of a sentence

At the end of a sentence, there could be a full stop, or a comma and you could continue the sentence further more, or you could even put three dots and continue it further to the next line.

You could also break that sentence without ending it, by putting a semi colon.

That choice is with the one who’s writing it and with what intent are they writing.

The similar case is with our life as well.

Any dream we have, any plans we take action on, it is we, who choose to put that full stop at the end of that sentence.

When do you want to put a full stop, whether you’d like to put one or not, or add one of the alternatives.

No one can decide that for you, no person, no government, no place – that power is only within your mind to do so.

Once that power is realized, then you can take any and all action accordingly – having full control of your life and what you do with that life.

Others & You

Others & You

Others win in life. So do you.
Others make mistakes. So do you.
Others do something wrong. So do you.

In life, we are always ready to point fingers at someone else, blame someone else, compare with someone else, and we are just not ready to take a look at ourself.

What are you doing? What mistakes are you making? What good are you doing? For yourself and for others?

Instead of just talking and thinking of others, their success, their failure, their mistakes, their right and wrong, its time we step up and look at ourselves first.

Check whether we are doing right before correcting someone else. Check whether our behaviour is right, before correcting someone else’s.

Time and again, everytime it’s others this, others that. And it just never ends. Now its time for you and you alone.

Everything looks difficult

Everything looks difficult

Everything looks difficult when you haven’t started.

You don’t know what it takes, what’s the process, what it entails, nothing.

But, it’s only when you take that first step, mixed with patience and constant practice, do you then realize how that difficulty was in your mind, but not in reality.

We created this image in our mind of how difficult it would be, or even something that we may have heard of.

But when we started it, we realized that we were made for it, we can do it, and its all good.

Most of the battles are won and lost in our minds, and this is just that.

Every Experience

Every Experience

Some experiences are good for you, and for some, the outcome isn’t. But, every experience has something to teach. In most cases, it’s only in hindsight that we realize that, and we understand and learn from it. But, even if we don’t, what we must know that every experience plays a part in moulding in, in improving us, in evolving us.

What we are today, is because of every experience we have had in our lives. These experiences play a part in your behavior, your habits, your thoughts, that voice in your head, your work, basically everything.

When we understand that, don’t you think it’d be better to look back at every experience with a different perspective, try to derive some learning from it, if it wasn’t a good one, what can you still take away from it. Everything helps you at a later point in time, and we aren’t even aware of it right now.

Even listening to this podcast episode is an experience for you, which might change something for you, somewhere down the line, either consciously or sub-consciously. Every experience matters. Every experience has some learning. Every experience affects our life.

Mind, Body and Soul

Mind, Body and Soul

What we think

What we feel

What we eat

What we drink

What exercise we do

It not only has an effect on our exterior actions, that is the words we speak, the work we do, the things we experience,

But, it has an effect on our inner body too.

Did you know that?

Every emotion we feel releases an energy of that sort in the body too.

Every thing we eat and drink is how our body processes it, and whether it is good for the body or not, then has an outcome accordingly.

Whether we exercise or not, not just has an effect on how “slim” we become, but it has an effect on our body processes too.

Everything we do has an effect, not just on the outward, but inward too.

We usually don’t think about how it affects our body, our mind and our soul.

If we become a tiny bit more mindful than usual, then we can start taking care of our mind, body and soul, at least from now on, if not before.

Ask yourself what is wrong

Ask yourself what is wrong

A lot of times, when something is going wrong in our lives, we start wondering what is even going wrong.

And to add to that, our perspective doesn’t seem to align to someone else’s point of view to understand what is wrong.

What can you do then, in such a scenario?

Can you continue to be wrong?

Or do you want to correct yourself?

How we live clouds our judgement of thinking making us think that all we do is right and nothing can be wrong.

You’re not able to entertain another person’s point of view to change this perspective.

At such times, you need to ask yourself what is wrong, what can be wrong, what can I do differently?

You need to look at yourself in a third person’s shoes, look at your situation from a third perspective – understand how it looks from that scenario, what someone else would’ve done vs what you’ve done.

Often, looking at situations from a third perspective helps to right our wrongs. And only because we aren’t able to change our thinking, our approach or even knowing that we could be wrong too.

Asking yourself what can be wrong changes those things.

In others’ shoes

In others’ shoes

When we see ourselves from our perspective, everything seems right.

Every step we take, every decision we make, it’s all the right ones.

However, when our worldview is limited, is when we don’t understand how what we do may affect someone else.

How would they perceive it, how would they feel.

Putting yourself in another person’s shoes is the best thing anyone can do, to improve everything about themselves, especially their relationships.

Look at that particular scenario from your lens, from their lens, from a third eye basically and then understand how it is perceived. When this is done, can you then expand your perspective as well as everything about you.

Taking a Step Back

Taking a Step Back

Sometimes the solutions to the most difficult problems are really simple.

But, being in the driving seat, we don’t realize this. With a rush to solve our problems, we go on a path, head-on introducing more problems than before.

And more problems start piling up. In this turmoil, we don’t know what to do and we blame everything else around us, but ourselves.

Instead, a better option is to take a step back, observe and analyze everything. Perceive everything from a third eye and then execute your next move.

Now you’re prepared. Now you know what to do.

Personal before Professional

Personal before Professional

We have been taught to always focus on our careers, on our professional side of life, the side that earns money and is able to buy things.

We are always chasing growth in that sector of life, trying to accomplishing our work goals.

Sometimes, we even make those work goals, our life goals, because we don’t know the difference.

That is how the system works, how the society works, no one questioned it, everyone just did the same thing, but in different ways.

Chasing professional goals is not wrong at all, it gives you motivation to do something but when it comes at the cost of personal growth, then it creates a problem.

When you are not in control of yourself, is when problems appear elsewhere in your life.

When you don’t know how to emotionally react, is when you hinder your exterior relationships as well as your relationship with yourself.

When you don’t know how your own voice in the head has come from, how will you separate yourself from what the society and their judgements say.

Personal comes before Professional.

Personal growth, first, focus on yourself first or simultaneously, and then let that impact every other area of your life.

Professional growth will create exterior success, but won’t affect personal growth. On the contrary, personal growth will create professional growth + inner success + inner peace + satisfaction.

How can you have a good 2021?

How can you have a good 2021?

We approach every year with a certain set of expectations, hoping for the year to live up to that level.

We had the same approach for 2020 as well and it took all of us by surprise and literally changed our lives.

However, here’s where it gets tricky though.

In terms of the magnitude of change, this year (2020) sure was a roller-coaster of a ride, but to think of it, not in the same magnitude level, but every year brings with it, its own set of ups and downs.

Enough ups and downs to break your expectations, with you ending up moulding yourself to those and making changes accordingly.

And, that is life.

The expectations we set are always uprooted by something or the other, and what sets us apart is how we then respond to those changes and mould ourself to them.

With such a perspective, when you understand this, then you also get to a point that 2021 could be better than 2020, but it would still have its own set of ups and downs.

And thus, we should not have any special expectations from the year, only to end up feeling disappointed or frustrated that things didn’t turn out like we expected.

Instead, approaching the year with an open mindset, with a plan in place, but also ready when things go haywire. That way, you’re ready for everything 2021 has to offer and you’re prepared for it (mentally).

Blaming Others vs Taking Accountability

Blaming Others vs Taking Accountability

What do the differences between the two look like – blaming others v taking accountability?

Blaming Others
– is easy
– allows you to shift every problem of yours onto others
– you’ve an excuse for every hardship you face, for everything that happens in your life
– you can now blame those around you, the technology, the government, the weather, you’ve a ton of options at your disposal.

vs

Taking Accountability
– is difficult
– now the onus is on you
– you’ve no one to blame, but be accountable for everything that you do and everything that happens to you
– irrespective of whether the outcome is in your favor or not
– allows more freedom and independence

Which side do you then choose?
The easier or the difficult one?

Some choices seem easy in life, until you realize its consequences on yourself and how it affects you short-term and long-term.

The beauty of learning

The beauty of learning

The beauty of a certain topic is there is so much to learn about it.

The beauty of learning is that it is never enough.

No matter how much you know about a certain something, there is always so much depth in everything that one can never know enough.

It is only when you truly want to learn, and start looking at things from different perspectives, is when you understand this depth as well.

The January 1st pressure

The January 1st pressure

As far as traditions go, or what we as the society start following and then calling them traditions, the worst one of them is the January 1st plans.

All new year resolutions, rather than starting them early and having an upper hand on your plans, or rather than having the perspective that you have the entire year to do these resolutions, most of us, plan everything for January 1st.

That is what I call the January 1st pressure.

In the hype of starting fresh or doing something new on the first day of the new year, we plan a lot of things for this one day.

And now you’ve created this pressure for yourself, to do all of this or your year won’t have the start you were looking for. And when you were able to do only half of it, or for some people, none of it, is when you get disappointed and frustrated and you carry that emotions for the next few days or weeks as well.

Instead, understand that a new year means you have 365 days to start what you want, to change what you want, and even now, you can have a upper hand to those 365 days and start with your plans right now itself.

It’s all about perspective to not focus everything on just one day and to rather enjoy that fresh, new day, looking at the entire year for your growth and learning and new habits and developments that you were looking for.

Let’s welcome 2021 with that perspective.

Worked or not, Gratitude is constant

Worked or not, Gratitude is constant

A learning which developed over time, with practice, mistakes and experience.

A learning that has been one of the biggest for me.

I’m grateful for everything good that happened to me, but also grateful for the other things that didn’t work out for me.

Everything that didn’t work out for me lead to better things in my life or even if not, made me realize the flaws in the path I was initially set to take.

Once you begin to understand that, you understand why you need to be grateful for everything that happens to you, the importance of that gratitude and what that perspective does to you.

Action Repercussions

Action Repercussions

There is no action that goes unnoticed and there is no repercussion that happens on its own.

They are both connected to each other, where one impacts the other and the other is dependent on the former.

That is the case of action repercussions.

Every thing that you do has a repercussion, positive or negative, sometime now, or in the near future, or even long-term.

Whether it’s how you deal with your mind or your body, the repercussion will happen sometime or the other.

How do you deal with your life, yourself, the people around you, the repercussions of each indicates how you acted in the first place.

When you live with that thought, is when you choose your actions carefully. Because you know the repercussions are upon you.

What you look for, is what you find

What you look for, is what you find

What are you’re looking for, or rather seeking?

That is an important question that should be on your mind.

Consciously or subconsciously, you get what you look for.

Whether it’s positivity, or pessimism, or finding the good, your approach sets the tone for your outcome as well.

If you’re determined to get it, then ways will appear on your path that will help you to get to that point.

However, if you aren’t satisfied with your current approach and if you think you won’t be able to get what you want, you can change that.

Your current approach doesn’t determine how your future approach will be – you can unlearn what you know, you can reframe your mind and change your outcome – everything is a possibility.

Right approach, with the right mindset and you’ll get the outcome you seek.

All the answers are out there

All the answers are out there

Surrounded with problems and questions and the unknown is how we live life.

We think we don’t know anything and we have to struggle, we have to find out everything on our own.

No one’s here to help us and our path will be paved by us, alone.

However, on the contrary to these thoughts that we have, all the answers are out there.

The answers to everything, whatever we are looking for, whatever we need to know.

Everything is out there.

You just need to know where to look, whom to ask, and how much help do you need.

Then you’re set.

Living a life with purpose

Living a life with purpose

On a macro level, few people live their purpose and get to live that life on a daily basis.

It’s not the same as being motivated or not the same as earning to cover your expenses. That life is different.

What does that life include then?

Living a life with purpose means

• you know where your FOCUS lies,

• your PROCESS is now streamlined,

• knowing how to balance your TIME and ENERGY,

• where to DOUBLE DOWN upon, and

• also, able to avoid the DISTRACTIONS in life.

Of course, there are a lot more advantages to living a purposeful life, but these were top five reasons, according to me, that sets one apart once they have found their purpose.

Have you found yours yet?

5 Lessons to learn from ‘Mirzapur 2’

5 Lessons to learn from ‘Mirzapur 2’

Done watching Mirzapur 2, just like most with access to the OTT platforms have, what can I say that already hasn’t been said.

Every episode felt like a film on its own, with a unique experience, this season brought so much depth and nuance to all the characters and the storyline, their arcs were just amazing to watch.

Glad with a lot of things that occurred, and simultaneously sad with some of them as well. And that just speaks how the show grips you emotionally and ties you into its universe.

Having seen English tv series for over a decade, amongst other great shows, I’m just glad to have Mirzapur on our Indian roster.

This show is just wow.

Having said all of this, I also sensed a lot of takeaways from this season, that can also be taken as life lessons, that will help sometime or the other, in life.

A. You always have a Choice
Whatever you do in life, no matter the circumstance at hand, you always have a choice.

A choice of how you’d like to proceed, a choice of how you want to approach, or change, a choice of decisions.

What you choose then changes your path and your life as well.

B. Once you have set a goal, you’ll achieve it at any cost
The thing about having a goal in life is that, once you’ve set one and truly accepted it as something you want, you’ll keep at it until you achieve it.

You’ll be persistent, you’ll not hear a no, you’ll keep making mistakes, learn from them, but keep moving forward until you achieve that goal.

C. Sometimes all you need is Love
Sometimes you do things, you create this pressure on yourself, you try to prove to others, you try achieving things, all because in return for everything, you were only looking for love.

You wanted this love and acceptance, for which you were ready to do anything, even though you may have no interest in any of it. That’s the significance of love.

D. The ones closest to you cannot be trusted at times
You need to be on the constant lookout for who’s around you, what their intentions are, and how much do they really support you.

Because, even people with sweet and loving words may have ill intentions behind your back and you’d never know. Have those around you, whom you can trust and who trust you as well.

E. Every action has an equal and opposite reaction
There’s nothing you do that goes unnoticed. Every action of yours has a repercussion, in what form, you don’t know.

This statement is almost similar to the concept of karma, where the kind of deed you do, is what you get back as well. How does it come back to you, is not in your control, but what you do in the first place is what’s in your control.

—x—

The best part about storytelling and stories in general is that there’s always some takeaway from it, if you wish to see that perspective. There’s always something to learn and always something to improve at, and this time, those lessons were taken from Mirzapur 2.

P. S. Awaiting Season 3. 🙂

What makes you unique?

What makes you unique?

Every individual has something or the other, that is different from someone else.

That is unique to them.

Could be their personality aspect, their perspective, their creative aspect, their communication style, but there’s always something that makes you particularly unique from others.

Ask yourself that question, whether you’re able to answer it. If not, then that’s something to ponder upon.

That uniqueness could be your strength that you don’t know about yet.

A blank page

A blank page

Imagine you’re writing a book, and you feel that you’re stuck somewhere and you don’t know what to write anymore, you don’t know how to proceed.

Will you stop writing that book?

Or will you try another approach to it?

You have a blank page, you have the choice to rewrite something, to change your approach towards writing, to change the entire book itself.

That is the power of a blank page.

It allows you the freedom to do anything and everything you want with that fresh page.

You can ignore everything you wrote, or rewrite the parts you didn’t like.

That’s how life works as well.

Every day is a fresh start, a blank page that allows you to rewrite your life.

That allows you to introduce the changes to make it better.

You can be stuck at a certain place, or change your approach altogether amd start with a blank page.

That choice to continue is something you have to take.

If you are ever confused about

The soft spot of Perfection

The soft spot of Perfection

RTH24 - Blog Banners (575)

The ones we admire, the ones we compare ourselves to, or compare others to, the ones we seek inspiration from – where does it come from?

We feel they are perfect – perfect in who they are, in what they do, so much so that we almost want to live their lives.

However, we forget that these “perfections” have a ton of baggages attached to them as well, and only the ones who have them know about them.

No one else.

Admirations, Comparisons and Inspirations come from the soft spot of perfection or our illusion of it.

In such a scenario, would you still want to live their life?

Or would you then just learn their ups and downs, live your own life, and try to implement or not implement from those inspirations and admirations?

What would you then choose for yourself?

Appreciate anytime, anywhere

Appreciate anytime, anywhere

We often take all the good things that happen in our life, for granted.

And for all the negative things, we get upset, we get frustrated, we feel stressed and tend to give those particular moments more weightage than needed.

However, coming back to the good things, it sometimes becomes so obvious to us that we don’t even notice it. When it happens, its a part and parcel of life.

How about taking a moment of our time to appreciate this?

If a particular individual has done something for you, take the time to appreciate that individual – let them know the importance of that deed – you’ll feel good, they’ll feel good.

If you’re doing something good for another person, appreciate the person who you got these good values from – appreciate them in thought – you’ll still feel good.

If you notice something that’s a part of your life, take the time to understand its roots and show appreciation where possible. For eg. when we eat our food, we simply start eating it. Where did the items come from, where did the grains come from? Show your appreciation in thought towards the farmers, the middlemen involved in getting this to you, the one who’s making it for you.

Show your appreciation anytime, anywhere – you’ll feel good, you’ll feel positive and you’ll feel happy.

Creating New Stories of Life

Creating New Stories of Life

What is life, if its lived the same way, every day, every week, every month and every year?

Do we create new stories if we live that way? Do we create new experiences for our own life?

We might notice enjoy other’s journeys, but what about our own?

Life is about experimentations.

With regards to everything, life, routine, lifestyle, everything.

The more we experiment, the more we try out new things, we end up creating more experiences, more stories, that’s how we add the spice to the life.

That’s how new moments are formed, that’s how life is lived.

That’s how we grow. That’s how we make mistakes and we evolve.

There’s no one way of living. No one has it figured out. You’ve to experiment, you have to try out new things, keep that adventure in your own life, so you don’t have to seek it elsewhere.

That’s what life comes down to. And its really so simple as well.

Experiment.

Having the UNDO button in life?

Having the UNDO button in life?

How many of us have wished for an UNDO button in our lives?

Just press this button and reverse that decision, that choice you made, that moment you lived.

Only if you could change the outcome – which you wish to change because it didn’t match your expectations.

But, we forget in such a scenario, that it is our choices, our decisions, our experiences, our thought process that got us to this position.

Then why change it?

Instead, learn from it, understand what you made you choose that way, implement changes (if necessary) and move on instead of thinking about the past.

That moment is gone, what you can control is the present which affects your future as well.

Instead of thinking of a CTRL+Z let’s focus on a new button – CRTL+DO.

No human being is perfect

No human being is perfect

Wouldn’t it be wonderful to know one human being, anyone, who would be perfect?

Perfect in every way!?

We admire people, we look up to them, we compare ourselves with others, we compare someone with someone else, the list is endless.

Admirations, comparisons and inspirations come from the soft spot of perfection, or our illusion of it.

Just because someone is doing good career wise, relationship wise, emotional wise, we feel their life is perfect.

However, is there such a case?

For starters, perfection doesn’t exist. There is only becoming a better version, for whomever it may be. There’s no end goal in any phase of life, just becoming better at it.

That brings me to the second and the most important point, said the above point, no human being is perfect. NONE.

Let’s get that cleared in our minds.

No human being is perfect.

Let’s not have that illusion either.

Because such an illusion constantly keeps one stressed, under pressure and in a mode of constant comparisons.

Every human has flaws, some are good at hiding them, some are good at overpowering their strengths, but everyone has flaws.

Understanding that is the biggest advantage one can have, in living their life, pursuing their goals, and ultimately, living a happy life.

The truth of “What has to happen, will happen”

The truth of “What has to happen, will happen”

Who has heard this before, “What has to happen, will happen”?

Most of us have heard it, a number of times in our lifetime.

Most of us abide by that statement too.

And to be honest, it makes sense as well.

No matter what you do, no matter how much you plan, no matter what you predict, in reality, what has to happen will happen.

You cannot do anything about it.

However, said that, how true is that statement?

Is it 100% completely true?

I feel there’s something left out from that statement, which we didn’t ponder upon.

Something that once we understand, is game changing for us.

It’ll have a massive impact on our life and our choices and our decisions.

Here’s my interpretation of what’s left out –

What has to happen, will happen if you’re ready for it.

That last bit is quite important and something we don’t think about.

“If you’re ready for it”

Things may happen to you, opportunities may knock at your door, and you wouldn’t even realize it, and only because you weren’t ready for it.

I believe when you’re constantly improving yourself, working on your mind, body and soul, working on your emotions, working on your goals, working on your life, you’re making yourself ready for that moment.

The moment of when it has to happen, will happen.

Only now, you won’t miss on it.

Only now, you will be ready for it.

You’ll able to see it when it happens.

When it knocks on your door.

Only because you made yourself ready.

If you haven’t made yourself ready and levelled up for what the moment requires, why would it happen to you?

Why would that opportunity waste itself on you, when it would knock on someone else’s door who is making themselves ready for it?

Seasonal Changes

Seasonal Changes

Most of us, wherever we live, have experienced multiple seasons in a year, changing from time to time.

Whether its the summers, winters, spring or the monsoons, we know what each season brings with it.

In terms of the atmosphere around us, the types of food that changes according to the season, the clothes we wear – all of this and more are catered according to the season at hand.

Basically, we are now prepared for what’s to come, we adjust with the season and what it brings.

What this also signifies is something really simple, that humans can change, or rather accept change when they have to.

Most of the people, when spoken to or otherwise, state that they cannot accept change or are not capable of change.

This is, of course, in regards to their mindset, their habits, their lifestyle choices etc.

However, now stating to those same people, how do they then adapt the seasonal changes to their lifestyle, how are they now capable of introducing those types of changes around them?

How is it that when it comes to improving their life mentally and emotionally, they hesitate and avoid that topic altogether?

If you’re one of them, then this might be something you ponder upon.

Pieces of the Puzzle

Pieces of the Puzzle

If you already have all the pieces of the puzzle, why haven’t you solved the puzzle yet?

Or probably you don’t have all the pieces yet, or how about none?

Would you accept that though?

Sometimes overconfidence and arrogance takes over our emotions and we feel/ show we have the pieces already, basically being a know it all.

In reality, its clouding our own mind and limiting our growth.

When you aren’t ready to accept that you don’t have all the pieces of the puzzle, it is you who will be affected, no one else.

Your path, your journey, your goals.

It takes the removal of your ego and the acceptance that you have yet to grow, when you also accept you need the other pieces to complete your puzzle.

Then, help shall be given to you when you ask for it. You shall receive the other pieces, the knowledge you seek, the tools you need.

You’ll then truly be able to have all the pieces. It’s a process, it’s a journey, you can’t have it all in a day, but you need to be ready to accept them too.

Living Upside-down for a Day

Living Upside-down for a Day

We live a life of routine, schedules and habits.

Don’t we?

Every day has a certain routine, there are certain habits that you repeat every day, every hour.

And that’s how life is.

A bunch of habits and routine that guides you on the path you’re walking.

However, no matter how much you love it, you love the process, you love the journey, but sometimes you need change.

Sometimes you feel if something could be different.

And that’s where living upside-down for a day comes in.

Not literally upside-down, of course.

But overturning your day, a specific day, completely different than the rest of the days.

The rest of the days, you pursue your dreams, your goals, you live your habits and your schedule.

But this one day, you do none of it. You don’t do any of those routines. You let go of your habits (most of them, at least).

Such a day gives you a different aspect to life, a different glimpse of it.

You get some change, and you then become ready to bounce back.

This day could come once a week, once a fortnight or once a month.

It’s up to you to decide that.

Based on your energy levels, based on how long and how much can you push yourself without feeling burnt out.

But definitely try it out.

Live upside-down for a day.

Just not literally.

Knowing yourself is a journey

Knowing yourself is a journey

One of the best things about life is about being self aware, about knowing yourself.

If you know yourself, if you’re aware of who you are, you are aware of your thoughts, your emotions, your interests.

Knowing that, or rather understanding that about yourself is an advantage few people get to experience.

However, knowing yourself is not a destination.

There isn’t an end point to this process.

What we have to understand is we are complicated beings, changing, evolving on a daily basis.

The more we learn, the more experience we gain, the more our thoughts change, our actions change, our emotions change.

Not just those, but our interests change too, our plans, our purpose, everything.

Knowing that, one of the biggest things we need to realize is that knowing ourself is a journey.

Of course the key is to become self aware as a process, as a tool to unlock our lives, not just to unlock a closed door.

Every action has an equal and opposite reaction

Every action has an equal and opposite reaction

Have you heard of this statement before – Every action has an equal and opposite reaction?

Yes, there’s a lot of scientific significance to it and yes, it’s applicable to most scenarios.

But, today we’re applying its meaning to mindset and learning its significance in that region.

Usually, there are tenseful, aggressive situations between two or more people which start with an action and a reaction.

It doesn’t matter who initiates the action here, as long as there is a reaction which is then equal and opposite to it and thus, leading to those aggressive, verbal or physical, tenseful situations.

What do the equal and opposite reactions mean?

Such types of reactions signify that you’ve given in to the situation and you’re not in control anymore.

These reactions are as bad as, if not worse, the initiated action.

On the contrary, irrespective of the action, when you’re able to hold your cool and analyze the situation before reacting means you’ve evolved and now your response will be better than before, you’ll be in control and technically, there would be no rise to a situation of any kind.

This is of course something that needs to be understood by the initiator as well, nonetheless, if the one reacting can learn as well, then why not.

Avoiding Burnout

Burnout is not something that you can avoid, but rather something for which you either take steps to control it beforehand or take care of it once it happens.

In most cases, you feel the burnout when you’ve given your all to the process, all your efforts, all your energy, and as an outcome of that process, you feel the burnout.

Irrespective of whether the outcome was in your favour or not.

Burnout is something that can happen anytime, to anyone.

And its not just towards your work or your work timings, but you can feel it towards everything else in life too.

But, how can you avoid it or rather control it before or after?

Well, it starts with becoming self aware of yourself, who you are, your needs, your interests, your energy levels, understanding when you need a break, when do you need to start taking care of yourself, when do you need to take a step back and analyze the entire situation again.

When you realize that the scale isn’t balanced anymore and when it is tilting and it’ll impact you, is when you need to start taking the steps towards it.

Journey of a Moment

Journey of a Moment

Have you ever thought about the journey of a moment?

What’s the journey about? What does it entail?

The moment comes, the moment goes and then the moment is in memories.

That’s the simple explanation of the journey of a moment.

We live in the now. Not the past. Not the future.

Every moment we live then passes on and we cannot change anything about it. We have already lived it.

Every moment of the future cannot be predicted, only planned, but you still don’t know how it will turn out to be.

So, all we have is the now – the present moment that we can control.

We can either be fully satisfied in the now, and then when the moment passes, have a beautiful memory of it.

Or another option is to live in the past or thinking about the future, with the present moment just passing by, thus regretting every moment thereafter.

That’s what the journey of a moment entails. It begins with a choice and ends with it.

Stand your Ground

Stand your Ground

Can you be easily swayed or are you able to stand your ground?

Anyone who gets easily affected by opinions and judgements towards them or anything that they do and then tend to change their own steps or opinions are those who are easily swayable.

This also comes from a lack of self awareness, not knowing who you are, what you stand for, what is your path.

On the contrary, someone who is strongly self aware about themselves is able to stand their ground.

They won’t let anything affect them, because within themselves they know what they stand for, in every phase of their life.

That of course doesn’t mean one can always be right, but there’s a thin line between being easily swayed and standing your ground that applies here, when you know that something really makes sense which would actually be an addition to your life.

Inner Pollution

Inner Pollution

As much as the exterior environmental pollution affects us, we often forget about our inner pollution that is affecting us too.

Speaking of the exterior pollution, we know how bad the environment currently is and the kind of changes that’s needed, nonetheless, it’s a collective effort that will actually make the change in that direction.

Said that, the inner pollution within affects us as much as if not more than the outside pollution.

More, because its within us and we have the ability to able to either pollute more or take the stance and clean it for a better inner environment.

So, what is this inner pollution then?

Well, its these negative, toxic, judgemental, egoistic, limiting thoughts that we have within us.

The more thoughts you have of that nature, the more rise in pollution within your head.

This pollution ultimately affects our mind, body and soul and basically everything that we are now and everything that we will be in the future.

To curb that pollution, you need to take that leap of having a positive mindset, a loving mind and heart, a blissful soul.

To get to that point is a journey, just by having a single positive thought or being in a good mood when you feel like it is not the outcome of that process.

It’s a journey that you can choose to be on, to forever curbing and ultimately trying to get rid of that inner pollution in the mind.

Ultimately, wouldn’t you want a clean, healthy mind that helps you grow and evolve constantly?

Blog No. 500

Blog No. 500

This is blog no. 500

It’s the big number!

To be honest with you, I had never thought in my life that I’d be writing a blog.

That too on a daily basis.

For it to reach the milestone of 500 is just a feat in itself.

For someone who was never good at writing and for being told that all my life to now writing confidently and comfortably makes me happy with the path I’ve walked on.

This blog has allowed me to open up myself, to take a deep dive into my learning and my thought process and gave me a path to share my thoughts, my observations and my takeaways on a global level.

Global, because sometimes these blog posts have reached places which I haven’t even heard of, so I’m just glad I’m able to provide value on that scale.

I’m grateful for anyone and everyone who takes their time in reading this blog and if it has helped you in any way.

Of course, 500 is just a number and the blog goes on, providing the same amount of value and more on a daily basis and maybe one day I’ll be writing my 5000th blog post.

See you at the next blog post!

Staying in your Lane

Staying in your Lane

What does it mean to stay in your lane? What good does it to you? Why should you do it?

Staying in your lane means to do what you’re good at, to execute according to your strengths and to walk on that path.

When you walk on that certain selected path, one, you have chosen to be in this lane, you’re aware of it, you’ve the knowledge of it. It’s your strength. Anything which is a strength is good for you.

Second, you are able to keep improving in your field because you understand the level of knowledge you have and how much more you have to learn.

You also become known by walking in that lane, when you share your opinions and observations about that path, people want to know more and want to learn more.

There’s only advantage for you when you walk in your lane, but the key is to identify that lane first.

That lane is not what the society tells you to walk on, or what your family tells you, that lane is a path where you’re comfortable walking on, where you enjoying walking, so much so that you can walk, jog or sprint too, you decide the pace.

However, the bottom line to excel/ succeed is to stay in your lane and then get better at it.

Walking the path of the unknown!

Walking the path of the unknown!

What is life, if not a path of the unknown, you may plan it ahead, but you never know what may happen.

No matter how safely you choose your path or how you emulate someone else’s path, everyone’s journey is their own.

Their own set of thoughts, actions, goals, difficulties and accomplishments.

When everything is unique to you, there is no knowing of what’s ahead, even if you compared it with someone else.

It’s a beautiful path to be on, full of adventure and no sight of what’s at the end.

No amount of planning can interpret the pits you’d be falling into or even how many.

There’s only one thing that can be done on the path of the unknown, and i.e. to be prepared for it.

When you improve yourself, your skills, your knowledge, your response to life, is when you become prepared for the unknown.

Instead of facing the issue and not knowing what to do, to some extent, you’re now able to prepare yourself for it.

If not with a proper solution, at least emotionally or mentally, so when the moment arises, you can be ready for it, you can be ready to face it. You won’t be in a situation of hopelessness or for the lack of a better word, be clueless.

Life is walking on the path of the unknown and you can only prepare yourself for it, with all tools and weapons at your disposal.

Serving on a Silver Platter

Serving on a Silver Platter

Quick solutions, shortcuts and just getting to the results hurts us in more than ways than one can count.

Walking on such a path where one wants quick solutions to every problem they have, a shortcut to every question they ask, gets them on a journey, where they aren’t learning anything, they aren’t evolving by making mistakes and then improving from them.

On such a path, there should be no difficulty, but everything handed out, so one can walk on this road with no cracks and no potholes.

In reality, this doesn’t get anyone too far because it doesn’t make them ready for the real world.

In the real world, one needs to find their own path, their own answers to their problems, be patient with the process and be ready to make mistakes as well. Sure, the process is long but is also an enjoyable one because they want to do it on your own, not something that worked for someone else’s life.

When they do so, they don’t want anything handed out on a silver platter, on the contrary they’re ready to face their own problems, do their own research, learn from scratch but do it with their own sweat and tears.

At such a time, they’re involved in the process, they’re evolving, ready to take on whatever comes their way. Nothing’s served on a silver platter.

Praise the Positive

Praise the Positive

How often does it happen that we didn’t like the food at a restaurant or an experience at a store or a hotel or a flight (for ex.) and we immediately leave a bad review on the internet?

How often has a public figure, be it a politician, or an entertainer or a sportsperson said something unnecessary and we immediately blew it out of proportion?

At the same time, how often have you written a good review after having an amazing meal at a restaurant? Or a positive review for a hotel or a flight after a good experience?

How often have you praised another colleague or a friend or an acquaintance after something good happened in their personal or professional lives? (not the inner circle, generally the friends in your life)

As a society, every individual is to blame. Because it is us who make the society collectively negative, with each one contributing by either a negative opinion or not praising the positive or also by staying silent.

Of those three, I want to focus on praising the positive in this post.

Let this be a challenge, let this be a movement. Every time we see something good happening, we build it as a habit to praise it, praise the positive.

In our circle, whether with friends or acquaintances or colleagues or juniors or seniors, whether on social media or offline, whether a personal accomplishment or a professional win, we’ll take that effort in praising the positive.

Whether we had a good meal somewhere, or had a wonderful experience at any place, through social media, or at least in person, we’ll take that initiative in praising the positive.

We cannot talk of everything else and not social media! Either the people we follow, or the community we’ve built, we will support whenever possible, we’ll praise the positive whenever we see it.

It’s this decision, this affirmation to make change possible when you see change happening. It’s this tiny step of you praising the positive, when you start noticing positive things happening in your life as well. This level of positivity will bring joy, energy, happiness and success along with it, you just need to be positive and praise the positive.

But my problems aren’t that bad…

But my problems aren’t that bad…

Have you ever had a problem that made you feel you stressed or anxious along with a wonder as to how would you solve it?

At such a time, the mind boggles down into spiraling thoughts and provides us with imaginations of different scenarios making us feel more panicky.

Sometimes, people then realize that these problems aren’t that bad when they compare to someone else’s larger problem at hand which is much graver than theirs.

Now, that isn’t bad at all. That’s a good way to think, it helps you get rid of the stress and anxiousness of that smaller problem (in hindsight) of yours and helps you regain focus of your life.

However, this thought that my problem isn’t bad can be troublesome too.

How and why?

Well, not that it isn’t good to scale down your problem with that other larger problem, but at the end of it, that problem, whatever it is, still is one for you, no matter what.

Only you have temporarily gotten rid of its effects by altering your thinking.

What can you do differently then?

Well, getting to its roots and understanding why it is a problem for you is a really good scenario from a micro and a macro perspective of life.

Once you solve one issue of yours, you then become capable of handing the other issues as well, those that affect you, and on top of that, you then come into a situation wherein those kinds of problems won’t have that kind of an effect on you anymore. Because now your mind knows that you’re capable of handling it, rather than getting rid of it temporarily.

Another counter point here could be that, it’s so easier to say to get to the bottom of it, but how easy it is when the moment arises. That may be true, but it doesn’t change the equation that if the problem is a solvable one, then you just need to get a practice of that calmness and patience to understand it and to deal with it.

Having both types of thought processes is good for you, one will get you the perspective and the other will solve it for you. The balance of both will come with practice and perspective and will give you a skill you may have not had before, or rather improved you at it.

The journey of self-improvement is long

The journey of self-improvement is long

Can there be a timeline on self-improvement? Can there be a goal set for self-improvement?

In the shortest answer, I don’t think so.

Hear me out!

When you walk the path of improving yourself, firstly its the realization that comes too late, and then understanding the issues at hand and then improving at them.

Of course, it’s easy to write this than execute because the process is a long one.

However, once you start walking on this path of self-improvement, you might wonder how much time you should give to it and if there’s a specific goal that you should attach to the process, which once achieved, means you have achieved the process of self-improvement.

Well, not to burst the bubble, but it is one.

The journey of self-improvement is long, lifetime long. There is no specific target to achieve and there cannot be any time limit to it.

The more you improve, the more you change and the more you grow. The more you grow, the more you want to improve and the more you want to learn.

The process is a cyclical one and ultimately, the vision becomes to become better than yesterday, to become a better version of yourself.

You improve at one thing, then you want to pick up another aspect of your life to improve at, you work on it, but there are levels attached to it, so basically you’re levelling up time after time.

This is not meant to scare you at all, no that’s not the case. The intention is to make you aware of this so you don’t have the wrong expectations of the process.

It takes efforts, it takes time, and yet its the best thing that you could do with your life.

What if you already know it?

What if you already know it?

Do you think you know about something or multiple things and don’t need to know anything more about it?

When you hear something about it, the first thought that comes to your mind is that you already know it.

Is that a good sign?

That you already know it.

You don’t have to learn more about it then, is that right?

Well, if you look at it from a higher perspective, it comes down to this… When you know about something, either you’re the best at that certain something, you’re the go-to person for that.

If not, then you still have more to learn.

This thought that I already know it limits you from learning more, it limits you from improving yourself on that certain something, it limits you from exploring more and it limits your imagination.

What would be better, to learn more or to be stuck at a middle point where you feel you already know it?

Curiosity is good, exploration is good and to have a Mindset of constant learning is extremely beneficial for you and your mind as well.

You don’t have to tell you’re happy!

You don’t have to tell you’re happy!

Happiness has become such a huge debate in today’s times, and more than usual, because we have been programmed to think about it in a certain way and on top of that, there are so many out there with their own definitions about it.

In the midst of this, a lot of people feel to share that they’re happy.

Whether in conversations or social media, someone will tell they are happy.

See, that is not wrong at all.

My point behind this post is this, of course we should share our happiness with others, we should put more optimism and positivity out there.

My question is are you genuinely feeling happy or are you feeling the pressure to say that you’re happy too!?

Someone who is happy can share that they are, but it also shows in the way they talk or in their actions.

Another point that I’d like to add here is this… I’m talking about macro happy, the overall happiness of life, feeling happy, not the micro successes or accomplishments of personal and professional that we would like to share and which also makes us ecstatic at that time.

When you’re truly happy, you should feel it and that is something that is shared automatically, not something that you have to convince other people about.

Changing your morning narrative!

Changing your morning narrative!

There are two things that happen every morning!

Either you are in your control or your narrative.

When you let the narrative control you, then you are not in control.

And vice versa.

What do I mean by that?

How often does it happen that you wake up and you immediately had to rush for work, or with the current times, immediately log in to work?

How often does it happen that you wake up and you’ve missed the workout time or your meditation time or even your breakfast time?

This is when the narrative controls you.

This is what happens when there is no regular sleep and wake up timings and the irregular scheduling hurts all the activities throughout the day.

One after the other, everything is rescheduled and then something fits in another time or it has to be dropped.

On the contrary, when your circadian rhythm is in check, when you have a regular sleep and wake up pattern, you’re in control of your life.

You control when to workout, you control when to have breakfast, you control how calmly and with ease can you start your work.

This is how you change your morning narrative.

And it changes when you control your decisions, rather than letting these tasks controlling your decisions.

Change your morning narrative.

Adapt Yourself!

Adapt Yourself!

Things never go according to plan!

There’s known and unforeseen circumstances that can change the trajectory of your plan!

The key is to adapt yourself to these situations!

Of course there’s no right way, but there’s no wrong way either!

You learn, you practice, you make mistakes, you evolve and eventually learn how to adapt yourself according to the circumstance at hand.

The bottom line is to adapt yourself!

Let your light shine!

Let your light shine!

All of us, yes all of us, have a light within us.

A light that shines around us, spreading the rays on to people around us.

The brighter the light, the more people it impacts!

However, there’s a catch too.

How dimmer or brighter the light is also depends on you, your mind, body and soul.

Nonetheless, the bottom line is, everyone has a light within them.

You only have to allow it to shine and let it impact others.

In a good way.

When you do so, you will try to make sure that the light shines brighter than usual.

And in that path, you will ensure how to make that light shine brighter and ultimately, make yourself better too.

What works?

What works?

What works for someone else might not work for me.

What works for me might not work for you.

The problem lies where we do something just because it worked for someone else.

What we fail to realize is that everyone’s paths are different, journeys are different, patterns are different.

Here in comes self-awareness.

When you become aware about yourself, you realize what truly works for you and what doesn’t too.

Then comes experimentations. Experiment with everything and know what works for you and what doesn’t.

It is then when you have tried everything and now know what works for you.

If I can change, anyone can.

If I can change, anyone can.

What I say or share may seem difficult or confusing or even impossible,

however what I want you to know is this…

I was in that same place

having those same thoughts

that this kind of a change is beyond me.

What did I do then?

Well…

I knew I wanted to take that first step to taste that new experience.

I had seen the results, so even though the start was difficult, I knew what the process looked like.

Once I took that first step, it was just a whole new world for me.

Walking upon this path of self growth and self improvement.

What I want you to know is this…

If I can change, anyone can and I’ll try my best to make you aware of this path!

The choice to walk upon it will always be yours though!

It costs zero!

It costs zero!

It costs zero?

But what though?

The biggest values in the world

That create the most impact!

Things like kindness, empathy, gratitude and optimism cost you nothing,
it doesn’t take anything away from you,
but it helps you to live a happy and positive life.


Not only that, but you also get to spread this word around, spread some love and not to forget, when you’re optimistic, good things just happen in your life.

Write the invoice of your own life!
Lockdown Learnings

Lockdown Learnings

Over the past year or so, one of my main intentions has been to work on my habits, to introduce new ones, to evolve them over time and to get rid of the ones that don’t serve me any purpose.

Amongst many that literally changed me, this lock-down period allowed me to work on a few more that have been on my mind for a while or some that I didn’t think would be essential to me.

Here are some that I’ve been working on and constantly trying to improve them:

1. Daily Meditations

It allowed me to align my mind and my body, it made me more calmer, more peaceful, to let go of things, every time it’s a different experience.


2. Gadget-free Meals

To have meals without having the phone or laptop around you, without having to watch anything while eating. It first started with lunch and now dinner too, teaching me to be more mindful during meals.


3. Yoga

Whether its the suryanamaskars or some other asanas, the lockdown taught me that you can do so much without even going out. The daily growing experience and the impact on the body is immense.


4. Breath-work

The breathing exercises helps me in releasing more energy in the body, influences the blood circulation, thereby increasing the alkalinity and reducing the acidity in the body, plus changing various physiological responses


5. Cleanliness

Whether its the brooming and wiping, or the sanitisation of the items brought from outside, or the occasional cleaning of utensils and dusting, this time has made me more aware of cleanliness than ever.

Mirror Mirror

Mirror Mirror

Mirror Mirror

Answer me this question

For I don’t know the answer myself

I want to change

But I don’t know who will bring this change

The mirror says

Look within me

For I always showed you the answer

It is you alone

Who can bring change

For no one else has the power to do so

How are you not curious?

How are you not curious?

How are you not curious anymore?

That’s what I would like to ask you today!

How are you not curious enough to question everything that you do?

How are you not curious enough to question everything that your life is conditioned to?

How are you not curious enough to question what the brands and marketers are selling you and you end up buying them?

How are you not curious enough to go beyond all of this and think of taking that step forward of questioning everything?

How are you not curious enough to ask how does life function?

Everything there is to know is out there.

All that is required is a tiny bit of curiosity from you.

That’s it.

Some curiosity, some questions, some research and you’ll have a well-garnished outcome of results that will change the way you think, the way you communicate, and the way life is.

I’ve been meditating daily for 60 days now!

I’ve been meditating daily for 60 days now!

Meditation was something that was on my mind for a while, but I could just never start doing it then.In the last year or so, I may have done a couple of them, including a sound healing meditation (which was quite impactful), but it didn’t get implemented as a part of my lifestyle.I always knew its advantages, I had heard people’s stories of how it had changed them but sometimes things happen according to their own timings and you can never force them.Then the lock-down happened.That was the time when things within me changed, my perspective changed on a lot of things, and as things aligned together, it was as if the universe wanted me to start meditating at this time.On the 30th of March, 2020 was the first day of this streak – and I must say that the first day was groundbreaking in itself.What I experienced was something I had never thought of.And then, day after day, different kinds of meditation happened and I explored more and more, and different things ticked off.I experienced moments in my life which aren’t a part of my conscious thinking, I experienced my life from a different perspective, I started looking at things differently, I visualized different chapters of my life, different settings that changed the behavior in me.To share in detail, what it does to you, here’s how I see it -Simply put, it helps you to align your mind and your body and be still.It allows you to silence your thoughts and just be, not thinking about the next task, not thinking about your worries etcIt allows you to focus on your breathing patterns – which thus helps in relaxation, more energy, more calmness, more peace.It brings inner peace within you.It allows you to let go of things that hold you back.It also helps in visualization of memories, goals, conversations, nature – whatever you want it to be.There’s a lot that can be done.Meditation then and now, is a whole different experience for me, such an essential part of life that is again never taught to us in the way we live.To experience this, you have to take that leap and change your life is how I see it.And there’s just advantages to it.Today will be Day 63, to be technically right and I look forward to my meditation time now, more than anything.

Stealing your Inner Peace!

Stealing your Inner Peace!

Let’s start with what steals our inner peace?

What are those elements of our life that have the ability to steal our inner peace?

Well, your anger towards someone else, ego, jealousy, competition, other people’s opinions towards you or your opinions towards them, same goes for judgements as well, failure (if you let it affect you) – these are some of the top things that affect the majority.

The question is, how can you let anyone else steal your inner peace?

The above-mentioned elements come into power when someone else is involved in that equation.

That means, you, yes you, are giving someone else the power to steal your inner peace.

Once you understand this, once you understand what inner peace means, what is in your control, what isn’t, what elements have the power to change that, then you can start practising towards controlling them.

You can start working on your traits, what pinches you, what doesn’t, what sparks your emotions, what doesn’t and ultimately, be in control of your inner peace.

In such a way, that you have the power over it and no one else can steal it.

Later.

Later.

When you tell yourself, that I’ll do this ‘later’, what are you actually telling yourself?

In simple terms, it means that you don’t want to do that something right now and you’ll do it at a later point of time.

Although, if you break it down, it means, that certain something isn’t a priority for you to take care of it right now.

Well, in that terms, what is the priority of that thing on a scale of 1 – 5? 1 being the highest and 5 being the lowest.

Well, if its anything beyond a 3, then the probability of you taking on that thing at a later point of time seems unlikely.

A simple reason is because, one, its not that important to you, second, on a day-to-day basis or a weekly basis, there will be something that is going to replace things on the priority scale of 1 and 2.

On the basis of which, things beyond 3 aren’t going to be taken care of at all.

What’s the alternative?

Either take on only one or two things at a time, so there’s no point of pushing something to ‘later’.

Or being well-organized to a point that you complete that entire list of 1 – 5, irrespective of how many other tasks or things come on to your plate.

Every human is different

Every human is different

Every human being, irrespective of their caste, creed, age, sex and DNA, are different.

In terms of what?

Their journeys.

Their goals.

Their thoughts.

Their emotions.

Their problems.

Their accomplishments.

Literally, everything is different for everyone.

Then why is it that one compares them with someone else, one aspires to be like someone else, one says I’m just not like the other person.

How are these things even possible when every human on this planet is different from each other.

Each unique in their own way.

The system doesn’t work that way because the system won’t be able to operate if everyone started thinking that way and that’s the problem we don’t realize.

However, if there’s one takeaway from this, that we should take for the rest of our lives is this…

Every human is different.

It’s all connected.

It’s all connected.

Hold On or Let Go

Hold On or Let Go

Everything in life

Thoughts

Emotions

Words

Opinions

People

Purpose

Service

Passion

Everything is something that you either hold on to or you let go of it.

It’s more of understanding whether that certain something is adding to your life or taking away something.

If it’s adding, then it’s a definite hold.

However, if its the other way round, if its taking away something – anything – energy, peace, calmness, then its time to let go it.

It could be easy, it could also be difficult, but that choice needs to be taken so you could be more balanced, more peaceful, instead of holding onto things that weigh you down.

The Dice

The Dice

Have you ever rolled the dice?

The probability is, you have.

A dice, in the form of a cube, has six numbers, from 1-6, one on each side of it.

You try rolling for a number that you wish for.

You try harder.

You try different styles.

However, when it leaves your hand and falls on the board, you never know what number is going to come up until its on the board.

You might appreciate the outcome or you might get disappointed by it.

Either or.

That dice has such a metaphorical meaning though.

To life.

Every step we take in our life, has a different outcome.

We don’t know that outcome.

Until it happens.

We roll with life, wishing for something to happen, but sometimes it ain’t in our hands.

Again, whether we appreciate that outcome or be disappointed by it is up to us.

But at least, we tried, right?

Not just outward, inward too.

Not just outward, inward too.

What we think

What we feel

What we eat

What we drink

What exercise we do

It not only has an effect on our exterior actions, that is the words we speak, the work we do, the things we experience,

But, it has an effect on our inner body too.

Did you know that?

Every emotion we feel releases an energy of that sort in the body too.

Every thing we eat and drink is how our body processes it, and whether it is good for the body or not, then has an outcome accordingly.

Whether we exercise or not, not just has an effect on how “slim” we become, but it has an effect on our body processes too.

Everything we do has an effect, not just on the outward, but inward too.

We usually don’t think about how it affects our body, our mind and our soul.

If we become a tiny bit more mindful than usual, then we can start taking care of our mind, body and soul, at least from now on, if not before.

Observe

Observe

That’s my super power.

Observing patterns, behaviors, reactions and everything else.

Everything around me!

When you observe, you’re able to learn a lot more, in more detail than usual.

The power of an observation allows you to perceive who people are, what the system is all about, reading between the lines, seeing beyond the black and white of the usual.

I’m not sure if it’s something that can be learned or it comes naturally, but I do know this, if you start observing a tiny bit more than usual, you’ll start noticing things a whole lot differently and eventually, your perspective could surely change.

There’s always good.

There’s always good.

No matter how much bad there is in the world, there’s always some good too.

No matter how many bad situations occur, good situations occur too.

No matter how many negative people are out there, there are positive people too.

The balance is maintained throughout.

It’s only what do you want to notice that shows who you are.

But, remember.

There’s always good out there.

What you Say is within You!

What you Say is within You!

When something is personal to you, or if it interests you, or if you’re passionate about it, then you may have realised that you can speak freely about it.

It’s like the constant flow of water in a waterfall.

Words come out of your mouth, like a melody.

That shows how authentic you are, about what you speak.

It also shows when you have to form words in your mind, because you just want to say something and it’s not authentic to you.

See the difference?

That’s why I say, what you say is within you.

Opinions Change!

Opinions Change!

Every time, there’s an ounce of shock and astonishment when a person says or does something contrary to what they did or said a while back!

The usual response is, weren’t you doing it the other way before.

Well, as a matter of fact, every day, every week, every year, with the amount of information we consume and the more we learn, the more we experiment and the more we grow,

Also results into our habits changing, our lifestyle changing and not to forget, our opinions changing as well.

It is very likely for anyone’s opinion to change from A to G or H to P based on whatever they’ve learnt in that time.

A change in opinion usually means the person has evolved then before, they’ve grown.

So instead of tearing up apart the person for the change, appreciate that they’ve had more knowledge about something and then took that plunge to change.

Constant Learning

Constant Learning

Our learning doesn’t end at schools and colleges, on the contrary, its never-ending.

Whether it’s a conscious choice or not, one is constantly learning, in some form or the other, everyday.

Consciously, the learning could be in the form of audio, video or text consumption or through conversations or when you walk on uncharted territory.

Subconsciously, learning happens through mistakes or through experiences – in your personal and professional lives.

Nonetheless, the bottom line is one is constantly learning everyday.

Whether by choice or not.

P. S. By choice is always better because you get to control and upgrade yourself on your own terms, rather through things happening in your life which aren’t in your control at all.

This learning, of all kinds, leads to growth in your life. The growth which leads to a different version of yours than before.

Whether a better version or not, depends on your perspective.

Is your phone charged?

Is your phone charged?

If I asked you, is your phone charged right now?

You’d know the answer.

What is the phone battery percentage right now?

You’d know the answer.

Be it your phone, or your headphones, your laptop, the point is that you’re aware when it comes to these items that you use on a daily basis?

However, what about you? What is your battery percentage right now? How long will you last before charging yourself again?

Do you know the answers to these questions?

We often focus on external items that control our lives, but forget to take a inner look that we actually have the control over.

Do I need to upgrade my battery power?

That can be done.

Do I need to recharge myself now?

That can be done too.

Is the battery getting low?

You can be aware of that too.

When you’re self-aware about yourself, the perspective towards looking at yourself and the outside world changes.

You now want to use that battery efficiently, you don’t want to drain it out, right?

You can then smartly utilise that power on things that matter or the things that interest you, just like your smartphone.

Share the Love

Share the Love

There’s a lot of negativity out there, not just social media (that’s just a medium), but everywhere else too!

You might have noticed this.

But, speaking particularly of social media, whether its comments, stories, DMs, tweets – there’s all kinds of negative stuff out there.

How can one, just one positive loving person play their part in this process?

Share the Love!

Share the Love, the Positivity, the Kindness if you have it within you!

Why?

Well, its contagious.

Another person feels that love and positivity and shares it further.

And this way, one person at a time, the world can be conquered with love and positivity.

Say ‘Today is going to be a great day’

Say ‘Today is going to be a great day’

How often does it happen that we look back at our day when it’s almost over and based on what happened do we then decide whether it was a good day or not?

How about we take the control about what happens?

How about we control the day and not let the day control us?

How do we do that?

Before you sleep at night, let that last thought be ‘Tomorrow is going to be a great day.’

When you wake up in the morning, let the first thought be and say it to yourself, ‘Today is going to be a Great Day.’

Set that precedent by yourself to yourself.

By saying this, you have set the tone for the day, you have set the pattern of your thoughts, you have set the mood for the day.

Now you won’t let the results decide the outcome of the day, but your actions will.

Say ‘Today is going to a Great Day‘ and experience the magic.

P. S. This is not a wand spell that will wave its magic at you, but it’s more of a mantra that you use to get back the control of your day.

The pressure we put on ourselves

The pressure we put on ourselves

I think you may have noticed this as well, and let me know if you agree with this thought!

There’s an enormous amount of pressure that we put on ourselves!

The pressure to achieve a goal, to complete the set tasks, to fulfill an obligation, to complete something within a set time, to impress someone or any other kinds of pressure one puts on themselves.

To top it off, it’s all self created, the pressure, no one is pressuring you to do so or even cares about it.

That’s the bottom line.

Because we don’t realize this, we keep feeling that pressure and live day after day and keep doing something, out of pressure and not out of enjoyment.

If we change that scenario, then there would be no pressure at all. Whatever is done, is then done out of satisfaction, fulfillment and happiness.

Too much baggage

Too much baggage

Do you feel that pressure on your shoulders?

I think its because, all of us, carry a lot of baggage along with us.

Wherever we go.

Baggage of emotions.

Baggage of opinions.

Baggage of negativity.

Everyday it gets heavier and heavier.

If that bag is not emptied bit by bit, it’ll reach a weight where it wouldn’t be possible to carry it anymore.

More than that, it would actually stop you from moving forward.

Let’s have a look at what’s inside that bag and try emptying it bit by bit.

Don’t be too hard on yourself

Don’t be too hard on yourself

Plans change.

Goals change.

Thoughts change.

Behaviors change.

When you walk that path of upgrading yourself, a lot of things start changing in your life.

Although, on this path, sometimes things don’t work out too.

It happens.

No one is perfect.

At such a point in life, remember to not be too hard on yourself.

Because, that makes it worse.

That will make you more negative.

Accept that sometimes things are out of your control or it was not meant to be.

That is (one of) the lesson(s) you learn when you walk upon the path of self-improvement.

The answers lie here.

The answers lie here.

We keep searching for answers.

If we can get the answers, it’ll be a lot easier to move onto the next step.

We don’t ask questions, but that’s a different issue altogether.

Today, let’s just focus on the answers.

Where are they?

Where can we find them?

The answers lie in the

Silence.

When its silent is when you can hear the answers the loudest.

It is then when you can hear only what you needed to hear.

No inner noise.

No exterior noise.

Just you, the silence and the answers.

Don’t feel guilty!

Don’t feel guilty!

This time that we have, can be used productively! It can be used for our self-growth, both personally and professionally! And with so much time in our hands, we can do a lot, literally a lot, that couldn’t be done before.

However, this is what I want you to know.

Don’t feel guilty if you wanted to have a productive day and you couldn’t.

Don’t feel guilty if you had prepared a lot of tasks for the day and you couldn’t complete them.

Don’t feel guilty if you wanted to take a day or two days or three days break and just cool off.

It’s when we started feeling worse about ourselves, is when things go wrong. It becomes negative.

Those negative thoughts tend to become a voice inside your head for everything.

I realized this and wanted to convey the same for anyone reading this and trying to make the most of the lockdown that is going on.

Don’t feel guilty!

This time will not come again!

This time will not come again!

I understand that this is a uncertain time, we’re facing an invisible enemy, lives are at stake.

I understand the fact that a lot of brave people from different sectors have put themselves at risk out there, in order to keep us safe.

I understand that a lot of people are working from home.

Today’s post is for those who are at home and aren’t able to work from home, due to various reasons and even for those working from home, who are able to get some extra time than usual.

This time will not come again!

Hear me out!

One, we obviously hope that such a time doesn’t come again, because technically it’s not a good time, and we all know that!

At the same time…

Never before has anyone got so much time in abundance, in their hands, ever, that they could use this to an advantage.

Advantage, how?

Well, you’ve always taken the time to work, to socialize, to relax, to watch a movie, but never for your self-care.

It was always brought down to, “I don’t have time for this”.

However, there are no excuses now.

You’ve all the time you need, to work on your inner peace, to work on your mindset, to work on your thoughts, to work on your habits, to work on your voice.

(If you want to know what do I mean by voice, hit me up on my Instagram – @rth24)

Why would you want to waste this time and not use it to your advantage?

A life-changing advantage?

People crave for this time, people are not able to get out of their day-to-day lives for this time, but you have it.

I can only bring this awareness to you, the choice is always up to you, the choice to change for the better, is always up to you. I, of course cannot force it up on you, but at least I can make you aware of it.

This time will not come again!

Learn to be Still!

Learn to be Still!

When you were outside, you wanted to be inside. Now that you’re inside, you want to be outside.

Isn’t that so?

When you were constantly out for work, you were missing the time at home, you wanted to be at home, you wanted to take a break. Now that you’re at home, and it’s been just 10 or 15 days since the lock-down, you’re eager to just go out and not be at home.

Let me share something with you, this feeling of not being able to be at one place, not being able to be with yourself will continue not just now, but forever unless you learn to be still in life.

You need task after task to keep you busy, so you don’t have to be alone with your mind, so you don’t have to listen to your thoughts, so you don’t face your real emotions.

This is again, because you’re not able to stay still.

Your body and your mind are not able to stay still.

That anxiousness, that eagerness will continue within you to jump from task A to task B.

The way to learn to be still is meditation. When you meditate, you learn to align your breath in-and-out, you align your mind with your body, and you become still in that moment. It is then when you experience magic.

It is that stillness which takes you to a place where indoors or outdoors, it doesn’t matter to you, you learn to control your situation and not let the situation control you.

Learn to be Still!

You shall not Pass!

You shall not Pass!

Negativity • Bad Vibes • Haters • Drama • Problems — we are surrounded by these things, all the time, in one way or another.

We let these elements bring us down, we feel bothered by them, and our lives are affected every day because of each of these elements.

You know what?

It’s time we take a stand and say to all the negativity, bad vibes, to all the haters, to the unnecessary drama, and to all the problems -⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

YOU SHALL NOT PASS

Say this to your mind, stand with positivity around you and in this process, also learn to train your mind accordingly!

You are always in control.

You are always in control.

You’re always in control of your thoughts, your actions, your behaviour, your emotions, your habits, your goals and your happiness.

There’s always an external factor in play, an external factor – at times bigger than you and your life.

Can you let it influence you or your thoughts or your emotions?

Once you set the baseline, that I’m the one in control of my thoughts, then no external factor can influence your thought process.

That same logic is then applied to your emotions, your habits, more importantly, to your happiness as well.

How do you be in control?

With practice. Understanding the difference when you are in control and when you are not.

Understanding the factors that bring the change in you.

Pushing yourself everytime you notice that change.

That requires self-awareness as well as the will power that you do want to do so.

The power to bring change comes from within.

It’s always up to you, and remember that you’re always in control.
