Fear of Failure
You have some expectations out of your hard work that you put into the task.
The actual result is significantly below the expectation level.
You get disappointed, low, demoralised, demotivated and lose your confidence.
The key to overcome failure is
—Keep your level of hard work high but level of expectations low.—
Just before entering the situation, just have an imaginary glance at the worse that could happen and try to find positivity within that.
- when failure bangs suddenly, it hurts more.
- learn to plan your failure.
Commitment | Your First Step
What should be your first step to success?
The greatest strength comes from the energy of commitment and brings in excellence in all walks of life.
Few people traverse the road of success without failure, but it is commitment to excellence that takes them through!
On a societal level this is needed because humans are limited beings and we need stability in order to function.
If you really wish to be committed for doing anything, please follow these steps
- Commit only what you know you can deliver
- Make as few commitments as possible
- Make commitments only after due diligence. Thereafter, add some more time for uncertainties and risks.
- Once you make a commitment, give your heart and soul for it to complete it before the time frame.
- Don’t overburden yourself with too many commitments.
- Focus on quality rather than quantity
How to find your Passion?
It is not easy to discover your passion. I know it because it took me forty years to discover mine.
Today I know that I have a passion for writing.
Your passion must match your talent. If you don’t have talent for writing or singing, you can’t become a great writer or singer.
The appreciation of your work by the world pays a very important role for the nourishment of your soul.
If you do something and it has no value for others, you can’t be passionate about it for long.
Your work should satisfy the soul of the world and then their soul shall nourish your own.
What is kindness?
Kindness is not just being nice or staying calm in an argument.
Kindness is listening with the intent to understand someone else’ point of view without your thoughts, ideas and feelings getting in the way.
Kindness is asking questions when you do not understand, believe or agree with the other person.
It is to validate the truth claims of the other person by acknowledging it if you agree.
Have you experienced kindness before? Or been kind to someone? How does it feel?
Isn’t it an ethereal experience? It is wonderful, how it passes on from one to the next, with a ripple effect on the world.
Small acts of affection, care, warmth, generosity and concern can shower you with inexplicable happiness and satisfaction.
How to avoid mistakes in life?
You don’t, but you can learn from a mistake to avoid it happening again, or deal with it more effectively if it does happen again.
The thing is, you probably are not even aware of most of the mistakes you are making.
So even more important is to be aware of your habits, so you can see where you are making mistakes that you didn’t even realize you were making.
Recognising and tackling situations is how we learn.
When we handle those situations in a way that leads to a negative outcome, we call them mistakes.
When they don’t we call them successes.
Even if what we did was the same thing, but external forces swayed things one way or the other.
So learning to look wider than the immediate situation and adapt to circumstances can be a real way to avoid the negative outcomes we call mistakes.
What are Opinions?
Opinions are what separates normal people from arrogant/dangerous people: The latter proclaims their opinions as facts, whilst normal people presents their opinions as *drumroll*: Opinions.
Nothing in general is a good idea to portray as something it’s not, although the impact of misconceptions for most things have little consequence, opinions portrayed as facts however have started wars, killed millions, suppressed whole nations.
It’s not the opinions that are the problem, it’s the misleading presentation of those opinions as “facts” that does damage.
