If mediocrity haunts you, embrace these changes

Most of us are seeking way to change our lives but somehow we fall in the trap of mundanities. It doesn’t take sweat and blood to stand out from the crowd. Small change in one’s attitude can bring hell lot of differences.

  • Letting go of negative energy

Umpteen forms of energies surround us. Draining energies like jealousy, hatred, anger and resentment leaves us discontented. On the other hand, a moment of happiness, gratitude and appreciation has power to uplift you instantly. Those, who have ability to screen the negative energies, are often identified as unique and remarkably strong people. They choose to embrace positivity, which makes their lives different from others. Do not allow gloomy waves to sweep you aside. Give way to the positive energies because it is very easy to get unsettled by disturbing ideas. Train your mind to be the master of your own thoughts and pick every single response. This practice has helped many to lay foundation of great life.

  • Stop riding in haste

Great people do not show any sign of urgency. They think of long lasting success and focus on sustainable growth. Their planning is meticulous and they walk in your own pace. They know success is not a destination but a beautiful journey. Many of us fail to notice small beauty of life because we are busy making our future. What if, we stop, and appreciate the diversity and richness of nature around us? Reward yourselves for small achievements. Laugh away, when uncertainty is rising. Remember, today is a gift and that is why they called it present. Make it worth living because at one’s deathbed, no one remembers how much money they made or how many hours they spent working.

“The hurrier I go, the behinder I get.”

  • Be self-assured

Self-assurance means having faith in own abilities and it is extremely captivating. It indicates that you are confident and reliable. Be assured of your own persona. You have to first like yourselves in order for others to like you. Your self worth is far more important. Best people never compare themselves with others and always try to be the best version of them. Focus on self-improvement and it will take you along the path of glory.

“Nothing can dim the light which shines from within.”

  • Build trust

Your credibility makes you elegant. When someone trusts you with his or her secret, bury it inside. Credibility, once lost, is very hard to gain. Be the man of your word. Be trustworthy. If you want to stay relevant, stop wasting time in petty gossips and complain, instead, invest your time in healthy deep conversation that will leave meaningful insight to life. If you can’t fulfill your promises, do not make them. Trustworthy people are very rare and one that is rare is always beautiful.

“It takes 20 years to build a reputation and five minutes to ruin it.”

  • Value people

Only a great leader can understand the value of celebrating people. It is said that one should surround them with great companies but what if, we learn a bit of something from everyone. Imagine how enriching our experience can get, if we encapsulate diversity. Everyone is good at something and one who understands this is the true legend. Do not be opinionated, if you want to make this world a better place.

Rising from mediocrity to relevance is just few thoughts away.

Dream big, Start small

Last year I made resolution to achieve certain things in my life, however small for others but very crucial for myself. And I feel so contended by the end of the year that my goals, for first three month of the next year, is already on the wall. Now, it has become absolutely clear to my mind that nothing in this world is unachievable. You have the liberty to define your dreams and goals. You have the power to mold your path. You can also achieve what you desire. So here are the five small methods that have ability to change the course of your life.

  • Put them on wall

Nothing is as powerful as those tiny sticky notes on your wall. You are planning to travel to a new city this weekend, put that on your wall. Are you trying to develop new skill? Are you trying to move on from an unhealthy and bad relationship? Are you trying to be a morning person or trying to shed some calories?  Whatever it is just put your goals on the wall absolutely lucid. You will notice them, while going to bed and while waking up. At times, you will just keep looking at them and fall asleep. You have to live and breathe your goals and for that your goals have to be tightly wired in your brain cerebellum. You will be forcefully reminded of your goals every time you feel diverted or lost. So write your goals and stick it to the wall.

  • Take one step at a time

Most of us become overwhelmed while defining our goals and tend to set unrealistic goals which begin to scare ourselves over time. To achieve big, start with small steps. You want to build your morning rituals then don’t set your alarm for 4.00 A.M in the morning one fine day because you were highly motivated. Let’s first try waking up at 7.00 a.m. in the morning. Once you start waking up at 7.00 a.m effortlessly, change your alarm time to 6.45 a.m. small move but highly effective.

Do you want to start reading books? Start reading for 10-15 minutes a day. Make sure that in those fifteen minutes you do nothing but practice reading. Practice this habit and you will find yourself extending your reading time. Set realistic goals and start with small step that’s the key.

  • Persistent

Now this part becomes challenging and test your patience. You have put your goals on the wall and you started executing them gradually but keep your actions persistent. You will feel like you are not making any progress but do it anyway. You will feel like giving up but don’t give up. Be stupid and be tough on yourself. Remember there is nothing like overnight success. You just have to keep doing without thinking of the outcomes. Jennifer Dewalt, a self-taught web developer, learned coding by building 180 websites in 180 days. Practice has power to bring tremendous results so be consistent with your actions.

  • Don’t be afraid to start

No. Wait. You know what it’s okay to be afraid. Everybody gets afraid before starting unexplored path and it’s completely natural. Your brain will explode with fearful and dreary thoughts but don’t let them overcome you instead overcome your fears and believe me once you see the results you will be crushing your fears all the time. You will be addicted to the fearless life.

  • Self-discipline

Sounds pretty tough isn’t it? But all the charismatic leaders, I have read about, if they all had one thing in common then that was developing self-discipline. If you want to shed some kg’s occasional Pizza’s and carbonated drinks are of no excuse. You have to be completely into your goals. You don’t have to explicitly develop self-discipline. Self-discipline itself is an outcome of being persistent and honest about your goals.
