A lot of people seem lost right now. Being confined to their homes is not something that they had factored into their schedules, and so it is quite uncharted territory. From sending in instagram videos of them performing daily chores like sweeping and cleaning, to ‘workout-from-home’ videos, people seem to be struggling to prove that they are filling up their time, and not wasting it. It’s ok to take a step back, and relax for a while. By relax, I don’t mean wasting time. At home, for three weeks, with the power to be in control of your time, your routine, and also the savings in travel time (at least an hour for most people), this does not seem to be as bad as it looks, does it?
Whether you are trying to succeed at work, in your relationships or trying to make money :
(2) NEVER GIVE UP : Persistence is the number one thing for being successful. It is easy for people to become disheartened when they are criticised or encounter a hurdle while trying to achieve their goals, but to be a true success, you must persist through criticism, rejection, pressure and failure. A fighting spirit will make you succeed.
(4) NEVER STOP LEARNING : Successful people learn from their mistakes, new experiences and other people. Learning at every opportunity increases your knowledge in old and new areas and keeps you ahead in your field. Read books, acquire new skills and seek additional training to move forward in life.
(6) AVOID CONDITIONAL HAPPINESS : Too many of us believe that if some problems resolved themselves, we would finally be happy. But striving for happiness without sitting back and finding happiness at this particular point in your life is no way to live. Successful people avoid delayed gratification and don’t wait for problems to resolve themselves.
The group of upwards of two dozen authors who have raised objections include Margaret Atwood, Helen Macdonald and Sara Maitland.. They call the decision “shocking and poorly considered”.
It is better to play to win than to lose; it is better to wear out than to rust out. It is better to aim for excellence and not get lost in success. When one puts oneself on the track of excellence, it brings out inherent talents to light.
It is said , “Those who have never angered anyone is a failure in life “. Similarly, a person who has never lost, has never found the joy of winning.
Winning involves four important dimensions—-self-confidence, mental toughness, winning-oriented thinking, and the ability to innovate. Create your future from the commitment to win and with the wisdom gained from your past failures.. It is easier to hold to your principles 100% of the time than it is to hold to them 98% of the time. If you give in to ‘just this once’, based on a marginal cost analysis, you’ll regret where you’ll end up. You’ve got to define for yourself what you stand for and draw the line in a safe place.
When you are young, you think everything you do is disposable. You move from now to now, crumpling time in your hands, tossing it away. You are your own speeding car. You think you can get rid of things, and people too——-leave them behind. You don’t yet know about the habit they have, of coming back. Time in dreams is frozen—-you never get away from where you’ve been..
