Daily Dose of Inspiration – Don’t be Stupid

FeaturedDaily Dose of Inspiration – Don’t be Stupid

From social media posts, to traditional blog posts, to webinar announcements, to online “branding” courses, self-titled experts were telling their respective audiences to quit their day job.

These “opt-ins” were promoted by doing what marketers have done all along to sell products, appeal to a person’s emotions, be it their point of pain or simply an interest. This can be easily accomplished by using emotionally triggering words and phrases such as: job frustration, underpaid and overworked, stressed, and my personal favorite, “why work for someone else when you can work for yourself.”

Entrepreneurship is a beautiful thing, but faith and clever posts doesn’t mean the first thing you should do is quit your job. It’s time to end the fantasies and get realistic. Ask yourself few questions.

  1. Have I made an effort to remedy any situations clouding my judgment? – Lets assume that your boss has no clue about the definition of a work-life balance, or the possibility of a clearly defined role is merely a pipe dream. Before you quit, ask yourself whether you’ve made any attempts to resolve these issues. Sometimes, things are not as bad as they look. If you keep on thinking negative about something, nothing good is going to come out of it. Think of the situation as a third person.
  2. What’s my game plan for the future? – Maybe you have a solid business plan drafted for your new venture or have  already solidified a few contacts in your desired field. A solid game plan moving forward makes everything manageable during such a tumultuous time plus it helps managing the finances. But if you are okay with living on the streets, knock yourself out.

     

If you do not have a convincing answer to any of the above questions, then DON’T BE STUPID & DO YOUR JOB.

Daily Dose of Inspiration – Have Attitude

Daily Dose of Inspiration – Have Attitude

Be Inspired..!!

“The only thing that you have control over is your mind.” ~ Napoleon Hill

Your goal in life should be to feel good. And having a positive mental attitude is the only way to meet this goal. So if you want to change the circumstances of your life you need not worry about what’s going on in the world or what other people are doing. The only thing that you need to worry about is tending to your own mind and thoughts.

We are all meant to be successful and to receive all that we want and desire and thinking negatively will hold you back from obtaining what you want. The way you’ve been thinking is a reflection of everything that you have attracted into your life thus far. Always remember your thoughts are the only thing that you can control, and by practicing a positive mental attitude is the first step in…

Daily Dose of Inspiration – Willpower

Daily Dose of Inspiration – Willpower

Be Inspired..!!

A person can be talented, bright and educated, however, without strong willpower and self-discipline, he or she will not accomplish much.

Burning desire is more than a wish or a want or a dream. Wishes, wants and dreams typically come from us, the human individual. Burning desire is something that comes from our spirit. It is as if our Higher Self is compelling us toward something. Burning desire is what animates our purpose and our values. Not necessarily what drives us toward getting a new pair of shoes…unless that pair of shoes stands for independence, achievement or confidence.

When your purpose is animated by burning desire, it does not mean that the path becomes easy; it just means that it becomes certain. Burning desire ensures that you will continue trying, continue getting up after a failure, continue being creative and continue your commitment to see your purpose through. In that there is certainty.

Daily Dose of Inspiration – Subconscious Mind

Daily Dose of Inspiration – Subconscious Mind

Be Inspired..!!

“There is a treasure house of power within the human mind.”

You must use your conscious mind intentionally and take action to direct what your subconscious mind focuses on. You are the Captain, and your subconscious mind is the crew or team of workers deep within the hold of the ship. You decide where to go and the subconscious is your personal servo-mechanism to get you there.

Whenever your subconscious mind accepts an idea, it immediately begins to execute it. It uses all its mighty resources and mobilizes all your senses , knowledge, mental and spiritual powers to that end. You can use this power constructively any time you choose. So don’t try to figure our the A-Z of how you would achieve the desired goal. The path will show itself, all you got to do is relax. But be ready to take action when the path shows itself.

Imagine…

Daily Dose of Inspiration – Mind Conditioning

Be Inspired..!!

When born into this world, we get plunged into a river of information, where each one of us is forced to play a role in this drama/game that seems to have been written by a crazy idiot. The pure, empty and virgin mind of the child has no alternative but to identify, assimilate the rules and participate in this game of civilisation.

The human mind is one of nature’s greatest achievements because of its infinite potential. Its potential is so astonishing that if you learn how to unlock its full potential, anything is possible. So how to re-program our minds? How to be the happy self like we were once? I can suggest the easiest way to do this. Something that you must have never imagined.

Go To Sleep..!! Yes 🙂

Researchers have proved that people can be conditioned with behaviors in their sleep and then exhibit those same behaviors when they’re…

Daily Dose of Inspiration – Respect Yourself

Be Inspired..!!

Respect yourself and other will respect you ~ Confucius

Respect starts with respect for self. A person who respects themselves is confident and has a positive attitude. When you feel good about yourself, it will in turn affect the way you treat other people. The above statement of Confucius means that when we learn to respect ourselves truly we will not do anything that shall embarrass and put us to shame. This ensures us that we will do good to ourselves and to others. We have to carry ourselves with respect so that others will respect us. Speaking of respect, it is simply about valuing or loving ourselves of who really we are. And having respect means, we treat ourselves, others, and even our environment with kindness and consideration. This means, we take good care of ourselves, and being aware of how our actions affect others. If we do not…

What do we really want in life..??

What do we really want in life..??

Be Inspired..!!

What do we really want in life. Well, in India, most of the time (till today) our parents answer this question for us. They chose the school we should (well yea..coz at that time we were too busy eating the orange and cola coloured toffees aka “Candies”), they chose the stream we should pursue to make a good career (not trying to sound old, but some of us didn’t have a choice here), graduate and get a great job (after all we don’t want us to be criticised by our parents in front of Uncles and Aunties for not being able to do well in life), get married to a “WELL-SETTLED” person and then do the same things to our kids and the vicious cycle continues.

But, what do we really want.
