Stop glancing from negative windows

Have you ever seen a house without a window?

May be yes…

If I ask you to move in such windowless house, will you?

Obviously you will never prefer a house or a room without a window. Who will prefer?

Just imagine, you selected a room which has two windows and you moved in.

window

As you open one of the window, you feel chilled breeze on your beautiful face like someone has welcoming you with petals and its fragrance is spreading across the atmosphere. You take a deep breath and enjoy every moment of it.

Sun is rising behind the mountains and gradually its rays are spreading across the globe like a smile of a baby. Birds are chirping and welcoming the sun and its fragrance, trees are dancing on the breeze’s tunes, leaves and petals are dipped in the morning dew. Each and every particle on earth seems alluring and hypnotic and guess what?

Your soul gets hypnotized by such captivating scenic view. Won’t such a scene be soothing to your eyes?

Wow! Not only eyes, it will be soothing to our heart as well.

As you move to the other window, you see haunting darkness, terrified night which makes you timorous. You hear the scream which extract your soul out of your body.

Which window you prefer to open?

Similarly, when we come across negative circumstances through our window of soul i.e. eyes, we start absorbing them. Negativity starts cropping up in our heart and soul; leaves us deactivated. Such negative forces hypnotize our mind which maps negativity.

Result is Crystal clear.

Anger takes control on our mind. Lips start reacting to the anger. Words coming out of our lips are piercingly sharp like a sword.

Why to have a glance from such negative windows?

We always be open to those people who motivate and inspires others. Follow those who are center of happiness. Their presence makes our society happy and spread positivity across the proximity.

We must visit places which soothes our heart and soul. See yourself sitting in the garden of roses, birds singing the nature’s song, feel the twilight breeze and let your mind paint the rainbow colors on your soul.

Open the windows of your soul and rejuvenate yourself rather than isolating yourself from rest of the world.

Life is beautiful and becomes more ecstatic when we spend time with enthusiastic, energetic and thrilled people. Open the window of Happiness.

Keep Smiling.. 🙂

Shaping your Attitude – Jeff Botch

Everyone of us can learn from our seniors, mentors and those we admire.  Every day is an opportunity to learn.  One of my inspirations, whom I admire and respect is Mr. Jeff Botch from San Diego, USA. He is a talented writer, personal development coach and a sales professional.

Jeff BotchIt is with great pleasure that I share with you today, the wonderful prolific writer who invented The ASAP Model along with hundreds of motivational articles and published his book, “BIG FEATS” on children’s development.

Mr. Botch says that the determining factor in how your days, weeks, months and years will ultimately play out is directly related to your attitude.  If you choose not to shape your attitude than what you are ultimately doing is giving other people and situations the ability to determine the outcomes in your life.

Below are 3 action steps he offers that you can use to take control of your attitude.

1. Affirm “Today is going to be MY day,” when you wake up in the morning.

today is my dayIf you are not someone who has bought into affirmations yet than you are going to need to change your thinking. Affirmations are simply a way to program the types of outcomes you desire into your sub-conscience mind. The simplest way to explain the power of affirmations is using the example of that 1st song you hear in the morning. If you wake up to a clock radio and hear some corny song you’ll likely be humming it all day long. By affirming the same positive thought into your mind from the moment you wake up you’ll surely be replaying it throughout your day and ultimately giving your sub-conscience mind the ability to manifest the result.

2. Smile at everyone!

be_nice_and_smile_to_everyoneTake this as a challenge and try to make good on it for an entire day. Everyone that you make eye contact with should receive a smile from you. This simple change from not smiling to smiling at everyone will not only brighten up the other person’s day but it’ll change the way your day unfolds.

3. Let drivers merge in front of you when you have the opportunity. You should have a couple opportunities every trip you take. By focusing on this simple act, you’ll start to change your mind frame from that of “What’s in it for me?” to “How may I serve?” When you start to think of the other person and honestly care about their needs you’ll start attracting the things you want into your life.

truthfulAccording to Mr. Botch, these are 3 simple action steps that will help you to begin shaping your attitude and he offers them as a challenge to you.

Keep Smiling… 🙂

Stop dancing to negative tunes

When I was a kid, I hardly used to go out of my home. Even when bell would ring I don’t dare to open the door.

I used to skip social gatherings, festive evenings etc. and even if I had to go (forcefully) and attend these, then hardly used to talk to any one there. This doesn’t mean, I was like ‘not-to-mingle’ person but I was worried, what people will say about me. How will they react once I start talking to them. Lots of questions would arise in my mind.

I was living in an isolated world.

It happens with every one of us. It must have happened with you, if not hats off to you. I wish I would be like you.

What will people say at my back’ put me in the isolation. I could not handle criticism. This word ‘Criticism’ made me shiver. It made me frightened. Socializing with people and rubbing shoulders with them for me was like walking alone in timorous and terrified midnight in the jungle.

I was living in the midst of Critics, their criticisms and people used to gossip about me. Unfortunately, I danced to their negative tunes.

“People deal too much with the negative, with what is wrong. Why not try and see positive things, to just touch those things and make them bloom?”

– Nhat Hanh

Before I move forward, let me ask you one simple question.

If you accidently caught in the marshland then what will you do to get out of it?

Yes, you guessed right!

You free your body and will try to grab some support and slowly try to come out of it. The more you make yourself rigid and stay there, the more you go deeper inside the marshy land. You know the result.

These negative people in our society who talks behind our back or criticizes us openly are not lesser than the marshy land. The more you stay with them, higher the negativity surrounds you. The more time you spend with them, more unhappiness will start revolving around your soul like satellites orbiting around the planets.

Wherever you go, they and their echoes will follow you.

What to do in these circumstances, when you get caught with these negative people while socializing?

keep calmWill you stop going or visiting these ecstatic places (the way I did)? Will you stop talking to incredible people who can inspire you, inject the positivity inside you and who can share life changing ideas?

No!

Just ignore them, live your life freely. Put the wings on your back and keep visiting numerous people no matter what they talk about you or how they react at your entrances or exits. Don’t waste your energy after them and their idiotic gossips. Entertaining these people are waste of energy, time and most importantly spoiling our mood and soul. If you don’t love talking to someone, just politely ignore them with smile on your face. Trust me, your million dollar smile will kill their egos and confidence.

ignore negative peopleNot going at such thrilled places because of the negative people will isolate you, the way it did me. Yes, I was hundred percent wrong and obviously was immature in my teenage days. But when I got to know my mistake, suddenly I worked on it and changed my attitude and it changed my life.

Now, whenever I go to parties or socialize with others, I just ignore the criticisms with my beautiful smile and never let their negativity enter in my soul. I filter out their negative impacts and receive positive vibrations from the environment, the way modern air conditioners filter out dust particles and provide you chilled air and give you soothing experience.

We go to social gatherings and meet various incredible people and increase our network. Strengthen our relationships with those who love us and care for us. Going there and not talking to beautiful people is like walking in the beautiful garden and avoiding the fragrances of the beautiful flowers.

In garden, you may get few thorns as well but because of these, will you stop visiting the garden?

Keep Smiling…. 🙂

How to Never Give Up

how to never give up

Source - http://www.virgin.com/entrepreneur

Stay Alive – Age is just a number. Said numerous times and it is just a two digit number. To accomplish your dreams age doesn’t play any role in it. I have read several stories about leaders and entrepreneurs who started their journey lately and left an impact on the world.

Steve Jobs, who left impact on the world with Apple actually did his best works in his forties. Jim Clark started companies named ‘Silicon Graphics‘ and ‘Netscape‘ at the age of 38 and 50 respectively. You must have played games at Facebook, Google+ and on your Apple or Android phones. These games are provided by ‘Zynga‘, a California-based company. Man behind Zynga is Mark Pincus, started this at the age of 40.

“Dreams and Goals have nothing to do with age.”

Lower your Expectations – Always dream big. But when it comes to practical life, always start from small amount and from scratch. Money or less investment doesn’t matter, what matters is our Passion for our work and Patience. Do your work passionately and give time some time. Expect less. We have to have deep patience. Preparing a masterpiece takes time and on the way towards preparing your masterpiece, you will face lots of difficulties. These difficulties will test your ability and patience. We should never leave hope.

“We must accept finite disappointment, but never lose infinite hope”

– Martin Luthar King, Jr

Stronger – You are stronger than you think. One should never underestimate his or her abilities. We all are born with talents and are unique in our own capabilities. Work hard and do it from your heart. We may not be a ‘born-with-silver-spoon’ guy but we must work so hard that our life becomes inspirational and golden.

“I am not born with golden or platinum spoon, but my confidence and perseverance will make my spoon golden.”

Persist – Whatever the circumstances are, whatever problems we face, whatever happens or even at some time luck may stop favoring us but we should never, never give up. We must not stop. Keep trying. If one path doesn’t work, think the alternative, do a bit of calculations and achieve the goal. In my dictionary failure means learning.

“You may encounter many defeats, but you must not be defeated. In fact, it may be necessary to encounter the defeats, so you can know who you are, what you can rise from, how you can still come out of it.”

Maya Angelou

Fake It – When you wake up in the morning, go in your balcony and treat yourself like a King. Go in front of the mirror and look yourself like a rising star. We must be Day Dreamers. Act like a successful personality, talk like a leader and live life like a King. Imitate the big leaders and work accordingly. But don’t just dream; plan and work to achieve your dream.

“Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world.”

– Harriet Tubman

Don’t Compare – Careful! Don’t compare yourself with successful people. They have their own story. You really don’t know their story. Write your own and work in that direction. Make your story an inspiration. Yes, we can get inspired from our mentor’s story and use their life as a reference. But never compare yourself with any one. Unfortunately if you failed to achieve your goal, it will crop a jealous factor. Result is crystal clear – Relationships will get doomed and ruined.

 “When you are content to be simply yourself and don’t compare or compete, everybody will respect you.” 

– Lao Tzu

The Dip – Life is full of ups and downs. Every successful has to go through rough phase and these rough parts should be taken as learning lessons. I always believe, after night, day comes. Just like a sculptor carves the stone to give it a masterpiece. A bad time actually tests us, make us learn, make us internally stronger and prepare us for our future.

“A temporary pain always give you gain.”

So, never give up. Achieve your goals and change the world.

Keep Smiling… 🙂
