Most people suffer from a disease called “not setting goals”. With the news at your fingertips and the notifications of social media constantly pinging, it’s easy to get distracted. Many people see their big picture become cloudier further away over time. For some it’s because they’ve never really imagined it to begin with. For others long-term dreams become neglected for the day-to-day distractions. Either way, if you’re not setting goals and working toward them, you’ll start to feel like life is passing, passing you by.
If you want to increase your mental wellness, you need to establish your priorities in life. Then create goals that align with your values and work toward them every day. If you can stay focused on what really matters to you, you’ll notice that your mind will be happier and healthier. Set your goals.
Bottling up your feelings is never a good idea. While you should always respond rather than react in any given situation, you still need to take the time to process difficult emotions, like anger or sadness. Bottling up your emotions might feel easy now, but it damages your mental health and overall well-being in the long run.
If you notice that something continues to bother you, don’t let it slide, speak up. Holding grudges will always hurt you the most and as the tension and turmoil increases, so does the pressure. Eventually those bottled up emotions explode creating conflict that would have been easier to handle in small doses.
Sometimes my friends ask “How/why am i good for my business?” Answer: Not because i am super motivated or fully dedicated, but because i am excited, self aware, funny, i always keep on reminding myself that my desires are my purpose, which makes the business look good & grow, employees/workers work with a delightful smile. Reason behind all is my believe in material growth.
One thing you can never point out in me is “MY CONSISTENCY”. Let me answer “the HOW”. I learnt it from my WORKOUT. Following fitness as a lifestyle choice is the biggest DISCIPLINE. Do you know why a person who’s going to gym is going to gym every single day without missing it!? There is something called DOPAMINE which hits you right after every workout creating wonders in head, heart & mood. When your workout gives you results, you never want to lose the streak of getting better stronger sassier. During this corona situation the only thing i missed is going to gym. Yes i was doing some 2-300 push-ups & squats in my house, but that never helped my hunger to lift weights. As i mentioned “DOPAMINE”; when your efforts show results, it’s a bliss to do what you do. Condition: you have to be CONSISTENT towards your desires & goals whether it’s fitness, studies or business. Whoever said it, said it right “CONSISTENCY IS THE KEY”.
STEREOTYPES: I wanted to talk about this topic since forever. You really don’t have to fit into any stereotype. Media teaches us a lot about the culture we live in books, movies, TV shows. They form a societal lens for us to look through and we see what they create stereotypes. We’re conditioned to believe specific things about specific people based on how they look or what they believe and we often internalize these stereotypes. We think that we need to confirm by having specific interests, wearing certain clothes or being good at a particular job.
The result is that things like race, religion, gender or sexual orientation become a tool for society to trap people inside boxes with definitive labels. But the truth is that, most people aren’t clean-cut stereotypes. We’re diverse and complex individuals with varied interests skills and strengths. So we need to embrace our authentic selves instead of trying to squeeze into a box that doesn’t fit.
Most people think their love for their religion or nationalism is unique. About religion I will talk some other day. But let me share today why i find current trend of nationalism stupid yet funny!!
You are born at a specific part of the world. Of course you have to stay loyal to your motherland. But how? You are loyal to your nation by paying your taxes in time, behaving well to your fellow citizens, be nice & welcoming to everyone no matter whether they are born in your country or coming from some other part of the world in search of a better tomorrow. That’s how real nationalism should be. Most modern countries were created after few people migrated & named it their home. We survive today not because of nationalism, but because of “we as humans were in search of right opportunities and right society/surrounding to build that opportunity”.
Let’s talk about current trends of nationalism, i should say TOXIC NATIONALISM. When i see “AMERICA FIRST”, “CHINA FIRST”, “INDIA FIRST” & later that’s followed by “GOD BLESS AMERICA” or any other country’s name in that bold italic place, I laugh at it without a second thought. Because everyone talks something against the other one to prioritise their own nation. Which later spreads hate & violance for nothing. This doesn’t reflect your love for your country. Just imagine JESUS is back to this world again. What he should do with this same ideology? He must embrace his middle eastern livelihood, then go back to his motherland Bethlehem & bless Palestine first to become the richest most powerful country in this world. Thank God, your beloved God is not alive to see such nonsense. Humans are mediocre in so many ways, this is the best worst one. In case you get the joke, i appreciate your time.
