People universally tend to think that HAPPINESS is a stroke of luck, something that will maybe descend upon you like fine weather if you’re fortunate enough. But that’s not how happiness works. Happiness is the consequence of personal effort. You fight for it, strive for it, insist upon it, and sometimes even travel around the world looking for it. You have to participate relentlessly in the manifestations of your own blessings. And once you have achieved a state of HAPPINESS, you must never become lax about maintaining it, you must make a mighty effort to keep swimming upward into that happiness forever, to stay afloat on top of it.
(This video got nothing to do with the post above. Elon Musk says so many things i agree & something i disagree. But this issue is real. We are literally moving towards a population collapse. Our population is high, but it’s population of old people who don’t contribute to the working class. There are some countries like Japan & HK where adult diapers sales numbers are bigger than Baby diapers. The working class pays tax which contributes to most pension funds. This issue is more like chicken & egg. We are going nowhere with it.)
You need to ignore what everyone else is doing and achieving. Your life is about breaking your own limits and outgrowing yourself to live your best life. You are not in competition with anyone else. Plan to outdo your past, not other people.
Don’t be so hard on yourself for feeling lost, confused or like you haven’t achieved all that you wanted to achieve. Life would be pretty damn boring if you’d done it all already, if you had no more room to grow or things to learn. Be patient. You’ll eventually figure it all out and everything will make perfect sense. Every experience will get you to where you are supposed to be. Every win, every loss, every heartbreak and every mistake. Don’t be afraid to fuck up, and don’t expect success overnight. Get lost, get so damn lost and find yourself over and over again. Believe in yourself, forget about what others think. Don’t stop until you make yourself proud. LIFE IS FUN, LET IT BE.
(This video got nothing to do with the post above. Little bit of fun & sass is important in life. Watch this 5 minutes of legit fun. Adam W, i don’t have to say more.)
It’s so easy to get caught up in wanting success, wealth, and fame. If that’s the kind of recognition you seek in life, it won’t last because it’s not authentic. We are here to be of service, to be of value, and to help others in our own unique ways. Success doesn’t define who we are. But it’s a reminder of what we can achieve.
Think about what matters to you and make sure you are doing things for the right reasons and not to please your ego. Make sure your intentions are healthy for you.
Strive not to be a SUCCESS, but rather to be of VALUE. (Not my words).
(This video got nothing to do with the post above. Do i believe 80% crash coming? Answer is: NO. Not for me. But the markets which are gonna crash soon or sooner are commodities, real estate & mortgage/banking. If your investments are in Automobile, pharma & retail sector, you can just chill because these industries have already seen enough downfall recently, now the only way is up.)
People who are critical. People who reject you. People who are inconsistent. People who are abusive. People who retaliate. People who downplay your achievements. People who secretly want your life. People who refuse to improve.
Stop wasting your time dealing with toxic, inconsistent, negative, energy-draining people. Some people are wired for negativity. They love retaliation, being argumentative, combative and abusive.
Let others talk about you or against you, doesn’t matter good or bad. Your job is to protect your peace. Keep walking towards a truthful consistent life.
We assume success is about being famous, rich and owning expensive things. But if you’ve pulled yourself out of a dark place, that’s a great success in itself. Don’t forget that you’re winning each day you don’t give up and you make it through to the next.
Did you know that you’re achieving great things every day? It probably doesn’t seem like it if you’re always looking ahead to the next thing. Nevertheless, many of the things you’ve achieved today are things you dreamed about in the past. You just don’t notice them in the moment they happen. Or they pass you by too quickly.
Although we shouldn’t get so comfortable with our achievements that we become complacent and stop moving forwards, we should make time to celebrate them. Otherwise you’ll look back on your life and think you didn’t do anything significant. But if this were true, your life would always have remained the same. Celebrate your achievements, even though they are little.
We all have shit days every now and then. All of us. No matter how perfect we aspire to be, and no matter how many things we promised ourselves we would do, sometimes all the things we wanted to achieve just can’t happen in one day and that is perfectly okay. That’s called being realistic. So your day was shit, well pick yourself right back up – chances are you achieved more than you think you did and you’re just being hard on yourself. Am I right? I think I am. Today was a bit of a fail. Oh well, that happens. Tomorrow is a new day. Get that chin up. You are a work in progress. Don’t be afraid to fail. Your mindset is your most under-valued asset.
(This paragraph got nothing to do with the post above. I appreciate those who sent BIRTHDAY WISHES in LinkedIn, Instagram/Twitter DMs, iMessage, Whatsapp & few e-mails as well. I thank my bank, insurance provider, credit card company, my employer & some brands for sending cakes/chocolates/cards/gifts. The fun part is; there’s a tiny mistake in my date of birth. My birthday is not 3-July, it’s actually 30-July. Only my family & close friends know the entire story. GOOD VIBES BACK TO ALL.)😜
