Vocation

As per oxford dictionary:

“𝒂 𝒔𝒕𝒓𝒐𝒏𝒈 𝒇𝒆𝒆𝒍𝒊𝒏𝒈 𝒐𝒇 𝒔𝒖𝒊𝒕𝒂𝒃𝒊𝒍𝒊𝒕𝒚 𝒇𝒐𝒓 𝒂 𝒑𝒂𝒓𝒕𝒊𝒄𝒖𝒍𝒂𝒓 𝒄𝒂𝒓𝒆𝒆𝒓 𝒐𝒓 𝒐𝒄𝒄𝒖𝒑𝒂𝒕𝒊𝒐𝒏”

Most of us often get stuck on the question: what’s our vocation?

I recently came across a video of Jay Shetty which was extremely helpful. I want you guys to go over it as well, it will give you much clarity:

Hard to swallow pill

You say you don’t want the reward but we all know that’s not true

You don’t want the pain

That’s what it is!

I write this post more so for myself. The past one week has not been easy. Being caught up between my 9-5, managing my immigration application and planning a vacation side by side had taken its toll on me.

Since I had so much to do, I would find myself peaking into social media every now and then to the extent that it was becoming toxic without me even knowing.

“An addiction to a distraction is the death of your creative destruction”

This is one of my most favorite quotes of all times. On top of all this, I got the viral flu which further aggravated my situation. So I decided to do a complete social media detox by deleting Facebook, Instagram and Snapchat. It proved to be an amazing decision so far.

The goal is to pay attention to what’s important up until the weekend. This digital age can seem daunting at times but if you know how to control your mind and take measures, you won’t be affected by it in a negative way.

Always remember, you are the controller of your mind and thoughts, not the other way around. Don’t let it fool you, strategize and take control!

5 am club

I have so much respect for Robin Sharma for writing this book. It is not just a mindset, it is a lifestyle. I think one of the most vital ones if you want to win in life.

So I started a support group on Telegram where members share progress. I invite my readers to join me on this journey:

Here’s what the group is about:

-A support group where you can share anything without the fear of being judged
-Unconditional respect for all group members
-No spamming
-Personal stories/progress
-Have fun
-Excessive positivity
-Making it happen
-Uplifting one another

Getting the play station

I know I know I’m super late to the party but I just got a Play Station 4.

I did not own the play station 3. However if I am to revisit my childhood I remember being a hardcore gamer on ps1 and ps2.

Although I am glad to bring those gaming days back but I am equally concerned if this was the right decision? You see I’m a completely different person now and my routine requires minimum distractions.

I just don’t want this to distract me from the productive things I do otherwise. So I decided to turn to my blog family to ask how they manage their entertainment time and how do you guys prevent it from becoming an addictive distraction!

Countdown to 2020- pt 5

T-0 to 2020: Happy New Year everyone!

I walk into 2020 smarter, wiser, sexier and open to new learnings and experiences. If this wasn’t a good year for you, do not worry, we can work together in 2020.

Let me take this moment to make some wishes out loud for the universe to fulfil this upcoming year:

May I come across people with genuine intentions.

May I have the strength and courage to face any barrier that comes my way.

May I do more of what matters and cut off all toxicity or those who are causing it.

May I be the reason this year, that at least one person tells me- “if it wasn’t for you, I would’ve given up”

May I be guided towards the light and help others while doing so.

With that I’ll end my chain of experiences in 2019. This was a lot of fun and something I can carry forward to next year as well.

The end…. Or maybe I’m just getting started 😉

Self Therapy- Session 20

If you read my first Self Therapy post which was somewhere in start of this year. And then this one, you wouldn’t believe if it’s the same person.

That’s is the magnitude of change I have experienced. If someone else narrated this as their story, I wouldn’t believe it myself.

You see, at the start of this year I was directionless and hopeless. I had given up on life with zero things to look forward to. Mainly because I was not paying attention to the 1000 things I was already blessed with.

Gratitude for sure defines your attitude.

Fast forward just 6 days left in 2020, I sit here as a person who has undergone massive transformation. Everything that I wished for, I prayed for, I have today. I have so much to look forward to this new year. It is probably the only new year in 5 years where I will be genuinely happy. And on this grand occasion I’d like to make a prayer.

I put out a wish to the universe to make this year the bestest year ever.

May I come across people with genuine intentions.

May I have the strength and courage to face any barrier that will obviously come my way.

May I do more of what matters and cut off all toxicity or those who are causing it.

May I be the reason this year, that at least one person tells me- “if it wasn’t for you, I would’ve given up”

May I be guided towards the light and help others while doing so.

With that I will end my post. I will be making another one on the last day of 2019 so stay tuned 😉

Countdown to 2020- pt 4

(Continued)
T-11 to 2020: This year was all about doing things right and I think I did a pretty good job at taking some initiatives. Will try to post all that I can remember.

To start with, during commute, I started listening to podcasts which is an excellent thing to do (highly advised). Worked really hard to inculcate the habit of reading regularly (something I have always struggled with).

Fixed my sleep schedule which involves both sleeping early and waking up early. There can be an entire post on the importance of waking up early. It’s a game changer. We can talk about it in detail later.

Started going for jogs, started to connect to people on a deeper level as opposed to just small talk.

Started to make my bed, which although sounds something small but gives a sense of achievement the very first thing in morning.

The most difficult thing was making happiness an internal process. Trying to have a good time with myself. Being comfortable in complete silence. Practicing positive self talk all the time so in case you come across that, do not disturb me because I might be having an intense debate with myself.

Changing your lifestyle is never easy. All change is hard at start, messy in the middle but rewarding at last. So start today and change for better.
(To be continued…)

Countdown to 2020- pt 3

(Continued)

T-14 to 2020: So there comes a point in life when you’re just bored of being sad all the time

When you decide you’re not going to just sit idle and will do something about it

When you see there’s a mountain to climb but you also know you gotta start somewhere

So you start asking for help, you start helping yourself.

This is the first step towards recovery, there is still a long way to go

Just keep swimming, just keep swimming (to be continued..)
