If life is constantly shit for you or you dont feel like things are going right, do you want to know what the problem is?

You are focusing too much on the 'Riddle of life'. You are focusing on something that can't even be quanitified. Such a waste of time and energy, both of which you need to start investing in more productive things.

People believe so highly in the idea that a positive mindset is all you need to change things around. You can be positive as fuck and exercising everyday and shit isnt going to change.

Stop believing that some magical hand is guiding you in life. The universe isnt guiding you, and the longer you think that way the less time you have to correct your path.

Do you think i woke up today and said "Hey universe, can you please fuck the pound up so i can make a few grand while an entire nation suffers?"

"Sure man, let me just crumble the pound so you can make some money".

See how stupid that sounds? Instead of waiting for the meaning of life to hit you through positivity, sit down, get a pen and paper, write down the skills you have, figure out what you need to improve and keep pushing!

Don't get caught up in belief that things are going to happen because you believe they will. Start understanding how to place yourself in more optimal positions through calculated actions.

Slide note: You will also find that the less you feed into your emotional side, the less likely you are inclined to constantly feel depressed all the time when things dont go your way. Stop letting emotion make your decisions.

Recently I have noticed that a close friend of mine is going against her inner will, her own decisions for the sake of OTHERS which neither has her happiness or inner will which frustrated me and is not happy at all that she made a decision which does not hold her happiness or her inner will's decision. It may not sound that bad at first but isn't she falling for the same principal that our society has been teaching us? Like in order to be happy, you need to get a job and earn money. This post which I am writing is all about what I think, it's not based on facts, just life experience and my thinking up until now. 

First point which I will make is, do what makes you HAPPY! We all have one life to cherish, even little things which contributes to our happiness, we must accept and take it. Do not make decisions on what others WANT from you or wants you to follow for their own gains. You have to learn how to STAND up for your own happiness and have the guts to face it with courage. It will make you happy knowing that you tried and succeeded rather than falling for the same system in which they want you to follow and being their puppet and regretting. A brief moment of courage to stand up to what you feel right will make you happy not what they have given you to follow and you are following it with no compassion. You should not mind happens after that because live your life according to the values/decisions/will that you have chosen. 

Second point which I will make is no matter how difficult the situation you are in. There is always a method to overcome it. For example: You are in a situation in where someone has asked you to create a logo for them (For free) and you do not want to do that because you will profit nothing out of it, you can just tell them that you do not want to do it rather than not saying and following it and regretting it. If you do not have the guts to tell that, then you have the option to make excuses and say you do not know how to create logo. It is not like you have to make excuses but if that one excuse makes you happy or you don't regret it, then that excuse is not a excuse because you did not had the guts to. The overall point which I am making is, even if the situation is hard and making excuses can help you, then chose that and you are not going against your inner will nor happiness thus creating no problems for yourself. If it helps you, making a excuse once will harm you nothing or just be brave and tell how you really feel.

Third point which I will make is save your own precious time doing something which makes you feel good. They say time is money, they lie. Time is life. Life is happiness, and enjoying what you do by making decisions which gives you both happiness and enjoyment so would you be happy for yourself or make others happy while going against your own happiness?
( It will make some people around you also happy by choosing the right decision ^_^ )

To end this, all this means is that Do what you want from the inside, what your inner will tells you to not what THEY want you to follow no matter how complicated the situation be.
Money can buy you basic neccessities. This is things like food, shelter, safety, etc. This gives us moderate amount of happiness as we have met our daily neccessities.

Real happiness on the other hand, as in true contentment has got nothing to do with money. It has got everything to do with your beliefs and your attutude towards life and how you see things. Your family could be the reason for your happiness, your mother smiling, etc. This requires having the right perspective on life. It is a choice. 

Money is not a requirement for happiness in life but it can certainly reduce the gap on the road from discomfort to comfort. For example:
When you have money, you do not have to worry or think about bills, food and etc and if you don't have money then you will have to think about all this and you will be worried. So therefore money reduces discomfort to comfort which may give you something to smile about or make you happy.

It's all about how you take money as but money does not make life happy.

We all have them times where we feel like, we have nothing left to give, no matter how hard we try, we always seem to be heading towards the dead end and we cannot seem to find the right direction to move on. 

If we can overcome the bad times, we will find success within ourselves. It isn't always easy to head towards the right direction but if you are about to give up, always remember these 3 things:

1: Everyone make mistakes:

We are all humans and we make mistakes. Making mistakes is fine because from making mistakes, we learn and we move forward. 

When we start to learn something new, we make mistakes but once we learned the basics and learned how to do things without any difficulties, it became a skill which we couldn't forget. Nobody is perfect and we make mistakes but we live and we learn to overcome these mistakes. 

2. Prove other's wrong:
When you have started doing something good and they say you cannot do it, show them that you can do it. Play more, Practice more, Read more, Write more, Know more and work harder than the person who who is discouraging you. 

Words shouldn't effect you because in the end action speaks louder than words. If he/she learns science for 2 hours, learn three hours, if he/she writes 2 pages, write 3 pages, if he/she runs for 2 miles, run 3 miles. Rather than sitting there thinking how great they do and you complain about yourself, prove them wrong, make them spit up their words. Don't let other's discourage you, you motivate yourself by proving them wrong. 

3.  Someone is always working harder than you:
 If you think you have done all you can, then you are wrong. Every one of us has some sort of a dream, goal and motive. It just depends on how far you want to go and how you want your life to end up in. Someone could also have that same dream as you and he/she is working hard to achieve it and then there is you saying you have done you can, who is most likely to get success?

Success comes from working hard, thinking positively and never losing the determination. If you settle for good enough, that is what you will achieve in life and someone will go ahead of you. Settle for the best not good.
“Success is not obtained overnight. It comes in installments; you get a little bit today, a little bit tomorrow until the whole package is given out. The day you procrastinate, you lose that day's success.”

I want to end this April in a good note. I have been lazy, not active enough and certainly not been working hard enough comparing to last 4-5 months. I have decided that from the beginning of may, I will work hard, be active and more importantly..kill this laziness off.

I have set 2 goals for the rest of this year and hopefully complete it:

1) Be fit and healthy= I don't do any workout and I constantly keep eating and eating leading to be overweight. I am not saying that eating is bad but eating too much with no workout, it's not good. By not doing workout, the health issues becomes serious, things like chest pain will constantly keep occurring and occurring...I certainly don't like that when it happens so I want to avoid it by eating healthy and working out.

2) Show emotions when talking= This may sound strange but I have heard from several people that I rarely show any expression when talking. It is not like I care about what they say but when I thought about it more carefully..it made sense. Smiling is the key one, I don't smile and maybe this is because life has given me so much pain that I don't feel like smiling but now I guess now I have to give this a try and see how I feel.

You may wonder why I am writing a blog  on such topic like this but this will help me. I make excuses whenever I start doing something good and by any chance if I make any excuses when trying to accomplish these goals...I can look at this and say "Look what you have said, now go and follow it". Excuses is not a good thing...when you are doing something which is not so good then there are  no excuses you come up with, you just go and do it but when you are doing something good...there are so many excuses you come up with.

At the end of this year, I will write again on this topic and tell you readers if I accomplished or not. 
The word passion has a simple meaning and yet it is very effective in our lives. It just means “To truly believe in something, have strong feelings for something you are passionate about and have an overwhelming desire for that something”. Every single one of us has a passion or for some of us many passions.  

You may not realise you have a passion, but you do. Figuring out is not really hard. You may have been to that stage many times but your life may not have recognized it as your passion. Passion does not come forcefully or you make it come out forcefully…you may wonder what this means, an example “A friend of mine who loves editing videos decided to do Photoshop training for some time, he had an interest because his friends were doing that training as well”. You may wonder what this means, what this means is Passion is something where you have a strong interest and has a larger purpose for you. What is the point of doing all this if you don’t enjoy yourself? Don’t make passion for someone else do it for yourself.

But saying all this, there are some people who figured out their passion when they were kids. From my experience, the parents wanted their child to be something which they desired or saw an ability in their child so they made sure that the child have been entered in lessons or whatever the child needed to become. As the child started to get used to all the training, the chid became more skilled thus their passion grew. An example to this “Sachin Tendulkar started playing cricket at the age of 15, he had a passion about cricket, he did not play for money, he played because he enjoyed it, he recently ended his career as one of the best player ever known in cricket”.

I didn’t find my passion when I was in school, when I did start to get an idea about my passion, I was redirected to other things by either my parents, relatives, or by my own ideas of what we should do or for me it was what would pay us the most money. I think most of us had this thought/idea at some stage in our life.
So here we sit in our passionless lives, doing nothing which feels boring and meaningless. There is no taste to it. How do we create a fun/passionate life now? Create an equation and this is how mine looks like and your could also look similar:

Overwhelming Interest+Hard work+No excuses+Purpose= Passion

  • You must have an overwhelming interest on something to begin with.
  •  If you don’t work hard, you won’t achieve it.
  • At the beginning it will be fun but midway throughout, you may feel exhausted or can’t continue, then don’t make excuses and keep working.
  • It has to mean something in your life and must have a purpose in your life.
If you are ever going to find your passion, always have an interest to begin with. Then start working hard for several days and months. When working hard, never make excuses or give up in any ways.
If everything is going accordingly to your equation, then you will become deeply engaged in that something. Then it will get to a deeper level in terms of purpose in your life. And that is a recipe for a good passion or even life passion for some. But remember this nothing is easy without hard work, don’t just rely on words. You must put in the effort too and never give up!
