Discipline is all about mastering self-control. It is a form of self-care. You will never always be motivated. You have to learn to be disciplined.
Discipline is necessary, so that you can love yourself enough to take action based on your inner voice. You have to act regardless of how you feel. You have to take action against all temptations you face.
DISCIPLINE is choosing between what you want now and what you want most, the choice is yours.
Check yourself. Sometimes you are the toxic person. Sometimes you are the mean, negative person you’re looking to push away. Sometimes the problem is you. And that doesn’t make you less worthy. Keep on growing. Keep on checking yourself. Keep on motivating yourself.
Because mistakes are opportunities. Look at them, own them, grow from them and move on. Do better, be better. You’re human. It’s okay.
Have a goal. Wake up earlier. Smile. Start running early morning. Make a new recipe. Buy a weighted blanket. Travel. Cuddle your puppy or horse. Say “I love you & I care for you” to someone. Laugh to dad jokes. Discover the universe. Sing your favourite song. Have your own blog/business/investments. Sleep well. Go to the specific place you desire. Be in peace with yourself. Take a picture on the top of a mountain. No matter the kind of goal, have one GOAL. And fight for it, keep fighting till you get it done.
Wake up everyday with motivation, and fall asleep with a smile. Live your life to the fullest, every second. Do exactly what you want, and accomplish it. You are the master of your life. You decide. You create. So go. Never doubt of your capacities, and go.
If anyone tells you that you can’t live the life you imagined, you don’t have to prove them wrong. Just keep on working your hardest and know in your heart that you can achieve it. Use their doubtful attitude as motivation.
You deserve all the happiness in the world. So pursue it with all the madness and passion in your soul. Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life you have imagined.
You gotta start romanticizing your life. You gotta start believing that your morning commute is cute and fun. Every cup of coffee is the best you’ve ever had. Even the smallest and most mundane things are exciting and new. You have to, because that’s when you start truly living. That’s when you look forward to every day.
TAKE EVERYDAY AS A CHANCE TO BE A BETTER HUMAN BEING.
(This video got nothing to do with the post above. If you think the trucker’s protest is over, some new shit is already there to hit the fan.)
Everything always ends up working out. Sometimes even bigger and better than you can imagine right now. Remember this when you feel like you’re in a hard place or you feel like you’re being challenged the most. Believe in where you’re headed. See the bigger picture.
Start by doing 1 push up. Start by drinking 1 cup of water. Start by paying towards 1 debt. Start by saving your 1st grand. Start by reading 1 page. Start by writing 1 journal. Start by deleting 1 old contact. Start by walking 1 lap. Start by attending 1 productive get-together. Start today. Repeat tomorrow.
WHEN YOU LOOK AT PEOPLE WHO ARE SUCCESSFUL, YOU WILL FIND THAT THEY AREN’T THE PEOPLE WHO ARE MOTIVATED, BUT HAVE CONSISTENCY IN THEIR MOTIVATION. -ARSENE WENGER.
(This video got nothing to do with the post above. I like interracial couples because of mixed Hindi+English language related tings, that’s a different story. But why i shared it; brown bro in UK who loves Google pixel & preaches it’s camera quality, uses O2 & Vodafone, FCUK cap/clothes, bargaining carrier plan for a discount because desi people get that. Bit too much of similar traits with TAP. People who still want to know why i prefer using Google pixel over iPhone as my daily driver; for photography the best smartphone camera is Google pixel. And once you start using Google assistant as your daily routine scheduler, you can’t go back to siri. Google assistant is just few thousand times better than siri. I have an iPhone too, just for facetime & company calls. I am team blue bubble since a long while, i understand it’s hard to exit that. I use 2 phones because i own a business.)

(This video got nothing to do with the post above. I can literally laugh at these women little over a hundred times within 20 seconds. If you ask me about my level of TRUST, i don’t think i will ever transfer money even to my future wife’s bank account. It’s not about MONEY, it’s about the purpose. If you don’t own your shit, i think nobody should entertain you in any form of relationship.)
You deserve the affection that you kept trying to pour into others. You deserve the same motivation that you tried to inspire in others. You deserve the high of happy, without the low of sadness. You deserve the joy of being spoiled, without the catch of having to repay. You deserve the relaxation of trust, without the paranoia of betrayal. You deserve to be confident, without the reminder to be humble. You deserve to look at your reflection with eyes of awe, not judgment. You deserve to be held forever, not for a night. You deserve to be first, second, and third. You deserve to have everything you want. You deserve this power. It is who you are and who you will always be. BE YOU FOR THE SAKE OF YOURSELF. VIBE WITH YOUR TRIBE.
(This video got nothing to do with the post above. 20 rules for young men, i guess it’s a must watch for everyone irrespective of gender.)
Your words can be more healing than any kind of medicine. They can be more toxic than any kind of poison. They can ease a mind of its nagging questions. They can relieve a heart from its doubts. They can free a heart from the chains that keep it holding on and that make it fear letting go. They can spring hope into a deserted heart. They can shatter a soul barely holding on to the pieces that make it strong. They can be a shelter for the broken and a canon of motivation for those who need confidence. They can build mountains of confidence and build stairs to those dreams that hide above the clouds. They can dig holes into the darkest and deepest of scars. They can strike happiness into the souls in most need of it, and They can strike sadness into the souls of those most far away from it.
So, before you speak, ask yourself if your words are true. If they are not, then you are fooling the hopeless into hope that won’t last & you are also lying to yourself. You are breaking down walls temporarily that will be built even higher afterwards. Say what the truth and genuineness in your heart need to say. Say no more. Your words are equally powerful & destructive, measure it before saying something.
The meaning of Karma is in the intention. The intention behind action is what matters. Those who are motivated only by desire for the fruits of action are MISERABLE, for they are constantly anxious about the results of what they do.
Someway or other we all have this attitude of “Discounting the positives”. I am talking about not taking responsibility for the good things of our life. It’s a form of negative bias in thinking. This thought pattern is different than ignoring or overlooking the positivity in our life. Instead when good things happen, you might believe that it was luck or explain it away a circumstance. When you don’t acknowledge that your success is yours, you’ll start to feel a lack of control over your life.
If you fail to recognize how your hard work, good decision and skills help you accomplish your goals, your levels of motivation will decrease over time. This is known as learned helplessness. Cherish yourself with some positive vibe time after time.
Friends usually ask me “How you manage to stay motivated whole day!?” Never changed my answer & i never will. My answer is; MY PEOPLE & MONEY. I am a strong believer in material growth, MONEY is always a priority. Now that i have mentioned this word “PRIORITY”; the earlier you will understand your priorities, the quicker your path to happiness will start opening in a big way.
Make a goal which can keep you awake with a smile, which can make you the best worker for yourself, at the end it must make you enough tired so that you can get a cozy happy sleep like a baby. No need of motivation from someone else. In my case, i am just excited towards everything new, i read a lot, i learn a lot, i read ton of news and articles on finance or tech, most of the time i keep on learning something from skillshare. They all help me remain positive to see “WHAT’S NEXT!!”. The day you will figure out your way towards priorities & desires, that’s it. At the end i must mention; “MOTIVATION IS AN EXAGGERATED WORD. I AM JUST AN EXCITED PERSON. I WANNA SEE WHAT TOMORROW IS PLANNING TO OFFER ME. THAT EXCITED ME ALWAYS REPRESENTS AN EXCITING PERSON IN ME TO THE WORLD”.
Most of my friends get surprised with my habit to wake up at 5.30-6AM. It’s actually not that strange or hard. It’s easy to get up every morning with determination if you are hitting bed with satisfaction.
My body & mind both are always fully satisfied because, I feed my desires whole day before reaching bed at night. I get a cozy tight sleep & I sleep like a dead body for that reason. The day was amazing & coming day will be amazing as well, that’s the thought which pushes me further. It’s like continuing a winning streak in life. Btw I have a streak of 600+ in snapchat too with 68 friends to be exact. YES I AM CONSISTENT & I LOVE BOTH STREAKS.🤣
Never ever take your work lightly no matter how it treats you. Figuring out own areas of interest is another topic, but that makes life happening while driving you towards your purpose.
Your work is your identity. I have seen people working their ass off till their idols became rivals. In every scenario “RESPECT & MONEY WERE THE MOTIVATION”. Learn to be consistent if you want to be respected, money will follow the same path.
The worst IRONY OF 21ST CENTURY is: when people want to make money on internet, they start selling the idea/seminar/courses related to “HOW TO MAKE MONEY ON INTERNET”.😂 Some do the same in the name of STOCK MARKET, REAL ESTATE OR SOME SHITTY BOGUS APPS/SERVICES. I have a huge hate towards these fraudsters disguised as mentors/internet gurus. Seriously!!! I mean, what’s in that stupid head while planning such niche. Let me answer: “Let’s get in while the going is good. Right??” This blog is active since past 4+ years. There is one thing I never talked about is “HOW TO MAKE MONEY!”. That’s the only topic I hate to talk/read/see.
Your body hair, ego, goals & happiness; all are your responsibility. First find your purpose which will help you set goals. Life is not what you live on weekends, stay disciplined whole week. Goals require forward planning & execution, same applicable for your health. Your view, opinion, obligation, enthusiasm, intrest & attitude towards life are not same as mine. Your name isn’t TAP. What worked for me will never work for you. Learn to serve some respect to your identity.
There are some mornings I wake up with a huge dirty smile on my face, I just feel like I can jump from a mountain to an ocean or surf for an hour in the middle of a huge wave. Then I switch on the lights because it’s still 5.XX AM, go infront of mirror half eyes open to admire my 5-pack abs with few words in head: “You still look like the smexy grumpy juggernaut I left yesterday”. After brushing my teeth & cleaning my face I think about whether I still got my XL-size hoodie clean to hide this morning wood, usually I wear M-size t-shirt/joggers/sweatshirts.
I see my phone it’s still 5.45am, either I can sleep one more hour or go for a run. Suddenly my head shouts at me “The fuck is your worth without discipline, dedication, drive & desires!?”. So now a days I am running 4-5km everyday morning, yeah gyms are open now and I love weights as much as sugar free cheesecakes baked by chef TAP. After returning back from running my nerves calm down little bit and I still do couple of push-ups to sweat nicely. I always prefer to sweat before shower because it helps in cleaning the dead skin cells our body sheds at night while we are sleeping. Most of the time my morning breakfast is a sourdough bread toast topped with scrambled eggs & 60 second microwaved baby spinach. Can’t miss my black coffee, shit I am little addicted to coffee now a days because of this pandemic. Staying home all day & working from home is fun, but I swear I am missing uni & language classes. Can’t wait to get back to life as it used to be.
(You are totally allowed to judge WTF i typed here!! Most of my posts are scheduled a month advance. Most probably I typed this while sitting on pot after returning from gym.) Tap OUT..😜
Start today. Start first. Start fresh. Eat healthy. Train like your body stops feeling pain. Once you quit, you will be back to ZERO from where you began and start dreaming about what you were before quitting. Erase that option to QUIT. It’s your body which screams to STOP, not your mind. Wipe that sweat & fetch your DREAMS. Your strength & pride lies in your PAIN. Now tell yourself “You are different. Your uniqueness is, you aren’t gonna give up. Be proud of yourself”.
Car broken down in highway on a trip. You want to take a lift towards nearby town or garage. You flagged & nobody stopped to help you.
Instead of that start pushing your car, definitely other drivers would get out & help you push/pull your vehicle towards where you want. If you want HELP, first HELP yourself. People like seeing people hustle.
I love that LOVE we shared.
Yes i am happily single. My heart is open & no occupancy I swear. Now a days I found love in expanding myself further, weirdly self-invested. Loving each day of my life & leaving no pages unturned where I can find money or happiness.
Someday I will fire wrath & bring it all alive the love/life that I wished, I don’t give a fuck who’s ready or who’s waiting for me. Let karma roll; I am always True to myself, all happiness will be mine or else I will buy it if something goes up-down again. Taking my sweet time to convince myself that “no-one around is as bad as I am, someone someday will match my enthusiasm truly”.
Not looking for my next one, allowing time for the last one to check in. In a mood to turn each day a day of winning something, in a mood to turn motivation into moments, in a mood to ramp up all dreams into desire & smash all one by one, in a bad mood to live life of a 13 me again, in a mood to become the baddest asshole I was, in a mood to bark & spark love someday, in a mood to become a stronger person before even thinking about happily ever after together, in a mood to grow bigger together. Some blessings are following & who is giving up!! Even if time is fluid, I will ride it soon or sooner. Not running away this time, reaping everything what’s mine..
Everyone judges me when I gift noise cancelling headphones as gift for marriage or anniversary.
You must see the bigger picture. Women are part crazy, dumb & loud. Trust me, that’s cute.
And we Men have needs. There is no cure except smile & say “I love you my queen” for every good or bad situation. Music without external noise is key to sanity. 😉😘
Till my engineering days were on; the best sneakers i was able to afford was a Puma California & Adidas Superstars. & Yes, i used to cry infront of my mama for one pair of sneakers a year in my school days.
During my recent past & MBA days: my choices skyrocketed to Air Jordans Grape, Air Force 1, Nike Kyrie 2 Gold medal, Nike SB Dunk California High, Air Jordan Lance Mountain, Vans SK8.
Now i am badly stuck at all Adidas originals Campus, Ultraboost, ZX FLUX PK, Gazelle, Yeah Yeezy, Vans Prelows Denim/Suede too. A nice pair of shoe always adds so much personality. It barks “YOU ARE TODAY”. An outfit goes 90% complete when you hit that right shoe game.
Why is this stupid post! Past year 2017 has given me so much more than i deserve. I see myself in a alltime learning & leaning curve. I will be the same for life. That’s how i am. That’s what i am. I am so limited to my small limits. Friends with whom i lost my touch in university or made few during my travel trips are hitting me up with some warm texts & gifts. Life seems fresh just like a start.
In coming days you will see here so much more about my passion+love for travel & sneakers.
Now. Let’s open up this sneaker game. I want to buy a Nike Air Yeezy 2. If anyone can suggest, a help is always welcome.
Feeling loved & blessed. I am on a small journey of life with little fun & little more work. Some friends & well wishers make me feel bee’s knees. Life is on a roll now. The hoover is now just a tad. I have to mention; that year 2008 which resulted to some bad grades in my initial days of engineering, i lost hope in me. Finished it anyways.
Long story short, few tossers made me feel like a toff. Digesting my life is going easier with time. I am somewhere at least. Anything in me ( Some achievement or that 5 figure bank balance), it’s a contribution of my little efforts to see a next day better than today & that push by my loved ones who never lost faith in me.
I am working on making a life which is simpler & happier. Yes, money excites me. But, when i see me heading to 2-3 countries every month for work or fun, it looks like; “This asshole made it big.” I am trying. I am still stuck. Stuck at my small health supplement business, my bad health conditions, my PhD admission in Germany, there are people seeking me stronger with every minute passing, some making me feel loved, some friends busy ruining my habits on how i see life.
Thank you all. Thank you for being there. Thank you for making me feel tad wider-stronger-loved. I know how bad i am. These people make me see the goodness in me which I don’t believe.
Oh. Rest will be there in my new blog/telegram. I will update soon. Wish you all an awesome year ahead.
(3rd pic: That number 9 is actually 13 BTW, i just don’t understand the fight between Google & Apple maps).
Yeah. New product update. As if now, the best selling in my catalogue. Thank you & i will update about next drop soon.
