Afraid, are you?

and then it all started to fall apart, again… How miserable it is when the manor of hopes erected with the ingots of hard work starts to pulverize just in front of our eyes… Times when feeling like failure comes more easier then breathing..

It’s hard to pick up those splintered pieces of our distraught self and start again…… But doesn’t all glory comes from daring to begin..

Remember the time when Mr. Churchill quoted, “success is not final, failure is not fatal: it’s the courage to continue that counts.”.. I hope you resonated it, right? If no, then now is the time, to rise and shine, and to begin again..

As to some effective ways, you can try out the ones below..

1. Mow down the guilt…: what is really meant by this is that just get rid of the guilt that weighs you down.. Guilt of failures often quells and sears our hopes.. So first of all, we need to free our heart from this guilt and start anew. Some simple steps like indulging into hobbies, meditation, taking out some self care time to clear our thoughts may do the trick and help us reboot..

2. Weave a list..: we can’t start anew anything without a coherent list.. So pull out your notepad and jot down your to-do list.. It’s said “a goal without a plan is just a wish” so, to be successful in your endeavors, you need to opt some meticulous tactics, like, alloting various time slots to different tasks, making a proper routine to finish your school lessons and so on…

3. Self motivation..: can I do it this time? What if ???….oh.. Not again.. Does these “WHAT IF’S” bug you too.. well.. Then you need to make yourself aware that only believing that “I can do it” will help you.. Whenever the clouds of insecurity looms out of the dark days, just take some deep breaths or give yourself a power packed inspirational speech facing the mirror and start afresh…

4. The Gratitude bowl.. : This is quite a simple way to thank yourself.. Well, yes you read it right, just thank and praise yourself.. Thank yourself cause you are stalwart, courageous to fight the odds, stronger than yesterday to deal with your troubles of today… Cause at the end, don’t we matter to us too…!!!!

“yes you’re strong, fearless, wonderful, amazing.. …… You have tasted the dust of failure, now it’s time to savour the clouds of success..”

Take care….🌼

Wipe the fear off your souls..

Take the plunge.. (now or never)

Hey pause.. Freez your fingers and let the time thaw for some moments.. Well, you must be wondering as to why did I say so? Umm.. You will know the drill soon!

Are you trying to get some work done but end up doing nothing as you don’t know how to get started with it… Maybe because the peak of the mountain is just too high and you are just too scared.. Then for a while, adjourn and think, will looking at the peak help you climb it, no right? Then just look at the next stepping stone, maybe now you are one step closer to your destination ..

Hmm.. So how to we do that?

Well then here are some coherent ways..

1. The crumb rule- just crush your long list of work into crumbs.. In layman’s terms, just devide your work into different time spans, multiply your efforts, subtract the negativity and get started with the task.. Per se, you wanna get a lesson of school done or work on completing your presentation, then for that make a notice of the deadline and get started by sundering the long work into small packages and keep on ticking them off from your list.. Simple as that… Ain’t it??

2. Dopamine detox- next step is to be wary of the distraction plaguing your attention.. If social media is holding your precious time in its grip then why not try detoxing..say it’s a kind of internet fasting but without a diet!!

3. Stay motivated, keep your spirits up- If you are into scrolling through YouTube to get your dose of incentive, then stop it, because motivation to achieve your goal resides just within you.. Search it out guys!! What you can do is make a list as to why your goal matters to you.. And look it up whenever you feel low.. Remember, your goals are much more attractive then any other diversions..

Hope this steps proves to do you good!

But most importantly, wipe the fear of failure off your souls, because those who vies to dream, churns to fulfill it, no matter what!!

Take care!!
