The Goal is Consitency

Everyone has a goal. Its a Universal fact.

Whether you call your goal, an ambition, a target or a milestone. It all means the same. You have an intention to make something happen.

But do we all achieve our goals ? If you are one of those few who do, then kudos to you. But for the remaining lot, lets empathize.

Lets backtrack from that feeling of remorse and sadness of not having achieved our goal yet. And dig into the roots.

First things first is having a Goal. Dont you feel excited and exhilirated just by the thought of this Goal. The smile across your face merged with the potential efforts required to make it happen. The more Challenging the goal, the more the Rush.

Man is a Needy-Greedy animal.  And its because we have an insatiable appetite for the material and non-material, we DESIRE more and more from life as we go on.

But why is it that these Exciting goals we desire , are not met. Why is it that we see the Finish Line, and yet are not able to cross it. What happens on the path to attainment?

Especially when in most cases we have a clear idea of what it takes to achieve our goals.

Well, whats missing in this Equation is the Variable called Consistency. Not to sound too mathematically correct, but a variable is an element, feature, or factor that is liable to vary or change.

In lay mans, it means that, when we start out to pursue our goal, somewhere down the road we lose focus or motivation. Result of which leads us to side-track. And before its too late our Desire turns into Doubt.

Next time you aim to make something happen, just MAKE IT HAPPEN, period.

A goal , like every race, has a start, a fixed track and a finish. If not run, walk, but stay on the track.

The Goal is Consistency !

A Lover's Perception



A Thing called Love. We all have it , We all express it & We all Love getting it. But do we all Think the same about it ? Take a moment to Ponder over the Thing called Love and what you feel about it.

Now I'll tell you my Perception. A Libran by Birth and as my Sun-sign states that we are, I quote, "The most proficient Lovers of all". And I proudly pat my back to that !

I truly believe, that when you find love in yourself first, you exude a personality that attracts Love. As it is said, "Like attracts Like". I rephrase, "Love attracts Love". Because If you cannot truly love yourself for who you are, how do you expect someone else to find love in you. Its a thought.

So take some time off alone and spend time with the person you SHOULD love the most. Yes, you know that person very well. Because I'm talking about YOU !. This might sound a little stupid and crazy to you at first, but it works. Take a Pen and Paper or a Notepad on your Computer and jot down the list of things you completely adore about yourself. Its a great Exercise to not only build confidence and self-esteem, but it also helps you shape your mindset and brings out the best in you, more effortlessly.

Be grateful, that there is only ONE YOU.

" Every new year people make resolutions to change aspects of themselves. ... I challenge you to just be yourself and more importantly, LOVE YOURSELF"

From the Lover in me to the Lover in you.

Happy New Year !

Autograph Please ?

Have you ever tried looking at your Life from a third person's perspective. Or let me rephrase, have you looked at your Life like you are watching a Movie?. Take a moment to first grasp the idea of watching YOUR Movie. Newly suggested thoughts take a while to digest.

Now that your visualise your life as a Movie, the million dollar question is, Who are YOU in the Movie ?

Hold on to that thought.

Now generally when you want to go see a Movie, you expect something out of it whether its comedy, romance, action or thriller your looking for. You want to ENJOY the experience and leave the Cinema with a feel good feeling ! But it takes two to clap and depends on how everyone brings it to the table.

In Life, you are the Director, Producer, Script Writer & Lead. What kind of a Movie would you like to watch of YOUR life ?

All you got to do is write your Life's Script, direct your Actions based on what you have written and Produce the Results you want to see . You are the Actor. You ARE the Movie. Live the Life you choose to Live. Yes there would be Villians & Vamps around in the form of Challenges and Obstacles, but then again, there is always a "HAPPY ENDING". Because you WROTE the Script.

Look around you. Life is a Stage and WE are mere Actors. What inspires TV Sitcoms and Movies are nothing but expereiences of People in their respective lives.

Its up to you now whether you make a Blockbuster out of your Life or a Box Office Disaster.

So, Who are YOU in your Movie ? Go ahead and write your Oscar Winning Role.

One Life, Live it Large !

Autograph please ?

Loving "YOU"


“I don't like myself, I'm crazy about myself”

How often do we say things like this to ourselves. As a matter of fact how often do we even talk to ourselves ? Have you ever tried it or do you laugh at the very thought of it ?

"Talk to myself? !!!, What am I Stupid ? !! "

Confession time - I Talk to myself. Am I stupid ? Noways. I love spending time with MYSELF. Generally, people are always surrounded by others through relationships or circumstances. Whether its Home or Office, you are rarely alone ; even if your a social outcast. So what am I trying to get at here is to ask yourself, how much time do you spend with the one you should love the most, YOURSELF ? Or are you looking for that Love and Approval from someone else ?

Every now and then I take a walk at the Race Course, to consciously spend time with "me".  And trust me, not only do you hear your thoughts more clearly but you also have these awesome breakthrough ideas . How can you even expect someone to love your company, if you yourself dont. Being alone is fun. It helps to get to know "YOU" and value what "YOU" are all about. And believe you me, if you genuinely Love "YOU", it won't matter what people say or think of you. I have seen people vulnerable and sensitive towards comments and criticism. Its like giving another person a Remote to CONTROL the way you should feel. I honestly dont even like the IDEA of being CONTROLLED. Dont think you do either.

So what are "YOU" all about. Explore yourself. Self-Discovery is a Road less Travelled, but is also known to be the best Journeys one can take. You might just have a Paradigm Shift for all you know. Life begins and ends with "YOU". There is only one "YOU".

I am Proud to be "ME". Are you?

So,

Go to a Book Store. Get a hot beverage and an uplifting book.

Wear your ipod to the park and admire nature.

Go for a swim. I've personally taken my best decisions in a swimming pool.

Watch a Movie in the cinema by yourself. Its an experience .(Atleast you wont have to share your popcorn)

Drive far away from all the metropolitan hustle.

Meditation is great. Do it and then judge for yourself.

In the immortal words of Oscar Wilde, "“To love oneself is the beginning of a life-long romance"

To "YOU" !

Choices


 " When life throws lemons, make lemonade or just bring out the Tequila ".

In other words, we face situations and incidents as a part of our everyday Life. But more important or rather crucial than the situation, is our response or reaction to it. There is not much difference in spelling between the two words response and reaction, but there is a world of difference that it makes to ones life. Reaction is being in alignment with the event that you just experienced. If someone shouts at you, you shout back. If someone irritates you, you get irritated. Getting the flow ?

Well read on. We do this on a regular basis that it has become a part of us and we dont realise. If you feel you dont belong to my generalisation here, good for you. But this habit that we have sub-consciously created for ourselves, allows our circumstances to dictate and control the way we feel. So if we could change that , woudnt that be the best.

Someone wise once said and still says, " Happiness is a Choice.". Just try this exercise and let me know how it works for you. Everytime your faced with a negative circumstance or situation, before reacting immediately, just imagine yourself as a third party to whats happening, think for a few seconds if it is really worth reacting negatively over, and most of the times you should say " No, this is not worth it especially at the cost of my happinesss". This is when you are Responding to the scenario.

So there you have it. All you have to do, is make the Right Choice for You !

And when your a Happy individual you will find yourself surrounded by Happy individuals. Its the secret formula - Like attracts Like.

Peace.
