Countdown to 2020- pt 2

T-17 to 2020: The thing is that no matter how many times these dark clouds have invaded your life (and passed away), you tell yourself that THIS time they are meant to stay.
Your thoughts are clogged with “Now I am done for good. It is the absolute end”

So the next time you fall in this trap I want you to remember and think of a time when it got real bad. Then think of what happened that made your situation better. Keep that silver lining in mind because it’s always there. And if it’s not obvious then fkn search for it and do not settle until you find it (to be continued)…

Countdown to 2020

As we’re approaching a new year, I’ll be sharing a chain of personal stories spanning throughout 2019 to give myself some perspective and for the sake of self reflection.

Why? Because I want to let you know, that you’re not alone.

Also taking a small step towards my Big Hairy Audacious Goal (BHAG) of making the world better because I was here.

T-25 days to 2020:
At the start of this year, I wasn’t really having a pleasant time in life. Tbh it got dark, real dark. I didn’t think I’d make it through….
(To be continued)

Deep breath

I take a deep breath and I think about all the times I thought I won’t make it. I want to hug my former self and say all this overthinking won’t get you anywhere. Just look at yourself now.

Look how you take care of yourself.

Look how you sleep on time.

Look how disciplined you’ve become.

Look how you’ve cut out all the toxicity from your life.

Look because there is so much to look forward to.

In my darkest times I thought things would never change and I’ll stay down forever. Which is why in my good times I am aware that even this won’t last forever. This puts me in a very sweet position of moderation.

Had I not experienced the extreme highs and extreme lows, I would never have ended in this current calming state.

So hey, whatever you’re going through, it’s happening for a reason. It’s all part of a big plan even if you think otherwise. Keep hanging, keep breathing, your time will come and your stars will shine⭐

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!

Long post but worth it.

Guys I want to share a winning moment, or let’s say some winning moments with you all.

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.

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.

P.S: 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 πŸ™‚

Self Therapy- Session 18

The famous Self Therapy session is back. I don’t think I’m the same person I was back when I wrote session 1. If you can scroll down enough and read only then you’ll know :p

But honestly I have and I am working really really hard to make a dent in this world. Just surviving won’t be enough now. A major contributor to this is membership into the 5 am club. Most of the days I sleep by 11 pm max and wake up by 6 am max. The morning time is indeed free of distractions and that’s where I can get an edge over others.

Physically I’d say I’m in the best shape (just a bit tummy shows..) otherwise all is in shape. This is the consequence of gym and jog on alternate days.

Mentally I’m in a place where I now believe that I am to do something that is bigger than myself. Help others by sharing my knowledge and experiences.

Spiritually I found this belief that everything happens for a reason and indeed and God’s planning is perfect in a way that puts you exactly where you need to be at this point in time.

I can say I am more than proud of myself. For a fact I know not everyone could have made such a comeback and for this I’m really thankful to my friends and family who made this possible. I wish my readers a blessed day, I’ll be back soon with another session! πŸ™‚
