Self Therapy- Session 19

Ever since I started the ritual of Self Therapy posts, I cannot recall even one post that talked about things going downhill.

That is the power of positivity and perseverance. It is hugely underrated. Let me start off with my mental health. I’d say I have recovered 85% of my sleep. Which means most days I’m having sound sleep.

Physically I have been ignoring jogging and working out and it’s taking a toll on me. I need to get back to this.

Other than this I make it a point to journal regulary. It keeps everything in check. By the way I have to share some news here. So a very reputable company approached me recently, offering me a 30% switch in pay if I am to switch. This was such a significant moment because at one point in time I thought I would never be able to work again and now to be considered by someone while being employed is truly a blessing.

The message is simple. No two days are the same. So when the going gets tough, be patient and when time is in your favor, be humble. Ciao!

Yes I Am Making It Happen Step-by-Step

Guys I want to share a winning moment, or let’s say some winning moments with you all. How I am making it happen, winning as I move on!

4 months back I was working a night job, hustling all night and sleeping all day. It was not a job that defined a decent career path however it paid well and that was the sole reason for me to stick around. Anyone one day as I was mindlessly scrolling my timeline I came across a picture of a tourist location (which I shall not disclose yet) and I said to myself-

“I do not care how I am going to do it but within the next year I will be travelling to this place. I do not know how I will save up, how I’ll manage but I’ll MAKE IT HAPPEN”

During the same time I started reading the 5 am club and every night I was working I used to have the same thought that how am I ever going to be great if I keep working all night. But as you know there is light at the end of every tunnel, if not, you create your own candle.

Making It Happen
Making It Happen

An opportunity came around for a day job in sales, I applied and made it through. This is where the magic starts. I start saving 50% of my salary (deposited it with a third party) because I knew I would spend it if they stayed with me. Fast forward today I have saved the amount required to make the trip to my dream destination that inspired me limitlessly.

However since everything does not work out the way you want to, I do not have any leaves since I’m on probation currently at the new job. Nonetheless, I plan to make the trip on January 2020 and I don’t remember the last time I was this excited for something.

I won’t say all of this should be credited to 5 am book or club but yes it played a major part definitely. The rest was me rising up against adversity, believing in myself and my capabilities and MAKING IT HAPPEN.

Conclusion
No I do not want anyone to quit their night job. The take home message is that each one of us is destined for greatness, even if you believe otherwise. It’s only a matter of time till you realize it and more importantly start believing.

Next update I’ll share when I make the trip. Till then be good and good day!!

A conversation in time

Me then: I’m the worst, I hate myself

Me now: I love every bit of myself, even my flaws and my insecurities

Me then: nothing will ever make sense

Me now: it’s starting to make sense

Me then: I wish to sleep all day, I don’t want to get out of bed, don’t want to face the world

Me now: I get up at 5 am in the morning and hustle while the world still sleeps

Me then: I’m not worthy, why is this happening to me, why me?

Me now: I’ll make myself worthy, try me

Me then: we get one life and mine had to suck

Me now: we get one life and if we live up to our potential then once is enough

My friends, no two days are the same. I am the same person today with a completely different mindset now. Doesn’t matter if you’re 18 or 40, if you want to, you can change for good.

What Sundays are for

Sunday is all about catching up on sleep, watching that show you had been wanting to watch for long, meeting with friends and refueling yourself for the week that is to come ahead.

I start my Sunday with a prayer, just like any other day. Then I make a to do list for the work that had been pending all week long. Just before sleeping I would tick off everything that I got done and it gives immense satisfaction!

I am at the car wash right now as I type this and it just made me think how we always get excited by simple things. Car wash gives me x 100000 satisfaction. The sound of water pressure as it hits against the car body and how you get to take home a shining car just like brand new!

What are some simple things that give immense pleasure to you? Do let me know in comments 🙂
