Some life lessons

Give the ME time and Focus yourself

These are some of the lessons learnt during different phases of life.

1. Take risks. Be bold and brave. Don't become stagnant in life. Make mistakes but learn from it and grow. Examine yourself at regular intervals.It helps you to do responsibilities with greater commitment and enjoyment

2. Be prepared. Anticipate your own needs.Plan properly and  create solutions in advance. I have decided to build good financial habit and have decided to save 10% of my earnings per month.

3. Our stress mainly is caused by living in the pain of the past or the fear of the future. Many often we forget that Life happens in the present moment. Make effort to make each moment useful.

4. Appreciate the people in your life. 

5.Be open  and be ready to change. I have met many people in life. They follow their own rigid rules in life and are unhappy.

6. Look back, be proud of what you have achieved and make proper plans for the future.

7. Decide to spend quality time with yourself. Just do something that you like to do like reading, writing, gardening, meditation and enjoy your own company

8. Follow your passion in life. Dont just work for money. Be passionate in your work and money will follow.

9. Yes always smart people win many battles, but it is true that hard work and dedication can get the ultimate victory.

I liked the ME time. It gave me  an opportunity to refocus and recharge. 

Concluding with these quotes

Happiness isn’t about getting what you want all the time, it’s about loving what you have

Just remember there is someone out there that is more than happy with less than what you have.

Love what you have. Need what you want. Accept what you receive. Give what you can. Always remember, what goes around, comes around…

Add more meaning to your life because life is beautiful.

Criticisms - They can help you

Criticisms - They can help you

We all hate criticism. Most of us react with and anger when we get some negative feedback. 
But if we just see whether there is anything hidden in it to improve 
ourselves, it can be of very help to us

We need to get over the very first reaction when we hear a negative criticism.

Few are some of the examples that we see/hear in daily life

1. Parents - Criticizing on the way children spend money. 

2. Your boss/manager - Criticizing on the way you work, yes even if they are finding the negatives, sometimes  this may help the areas you need to improve - Proactiveness, smartness, punctuality let it be anything

3. Your spouse - The person whom you spend most of the time, he/she knows all your weakness, Just see if  they help us understand some of our shortcomings which we may not able to identify 

4. Your siblings - Yes they are the biggest evaluators

So if someone criticise you, may be because they care you. They help you see things in a different light.

Criticism is often the only way we learn about our weaknesses. When we’re defensive, we lose a chance to improve.
