Start by making your bed.

Since childhood, my father has taught me that once you wake up you should start the day by making your bed.

It’s a really very small activity and does not consume much time but gives us a little sense of accomplishment that we’ve done one work correctly ourselves and further motivates us to achieve our targets of the day.

And in case we have a bad day, we come back to a bed that we made in the morning and can feel good about it. It will give us the encouragement we need, that tomorrow will be a better day.

P.s. If you want to change your life, or bring a change in the world. You have to start by making your bed.

Tell me people do you have this habit and has it brought a difference in your outlook towards life? Or have you ever wanted to adopt the same? Keep sharing your views.

Winning people over…

Misha didn’t like what Rashi was doing in her life. According to her it was utter nonsense. Rashi didn’t care much about her opinion. She went on with what she was doing, however she was a little sad. Misha never left an opportunity to pull her down for her actions.

Whenever something would go wrong with Rashi M would say “This is why I told you to stop that rubbish thing” M was very good in self marketing, so obviously her views had an edge over Rashi’s. She had that innate power to make believe what she is saying is correct (even if truth was around the opposite side of the universe) Also she could easily grab everyone’s attention.

No is perfect. But in the end whom would you prefer? The marketing minded one or the silent one? Who will be more fruitful?

Turn criticism into a challenge.

One morning while having breakfast she excitedly told him about her dream.. Something she wanted to do, something she aspired to become…

But to her surprise he ridiculed her… And rudely said that she would never be able to do the hard work required for achieving such great heights in life and she should rather get back to her daily routine, the place where she belongs..

Has anyone ever told you in life that you are good for nothing? Or that you won’t be able to do a particular work? Has anyone ever made fun of you for having big dreams in life?

What was your reaction in that situation? Was that person strong enough to demotivate you and come between you and your dreams? Or were you confident enough in your capabilities to prove that person wrong and to live the life you had imagined…

P.s. Never give anyone the right to make you feel less about yourself. You are worth much more. Just believe in yourself and follow your dreams. Convert all the negativity into positive criticism and keep working.

Who will talk first?

His one line reply was enough to put her into a gloom of despair.

She didn’t ask anything further as his words seemed a final answer to her.

He waited for her to ask more. As she didn’t, he left.

She thought why had he chosen so.

He thought why she hadn’t cared enough to ask him for explanation ..

Ego and assumptions are powerful enough to ruin relationships. Keep an eye for heart to heart conversations.
