If you look closely, you’ll notice the energy of inspiration is all around. From the rising sun to a placid lake on a warm summer night; from our favorite books to our own reflections, the places and things from which we can draw inspiration are infinite. And the best part is that every day is a chance to capture this energy—to seek out all of the life’s possibilities.
As you aspire to do great things, here are 10 tips that can help you get through with a smile.
1.Stop fixating on failure
For a committed man, there is no such thing as failure. If you fall down 100 times in the day, it is 100 lessons learnt. If you commit yourself like this to creating what you really care for, your mind gets organized. Separate the failure from your identity. Just because you haven’t found a successful way of doing something (yet) doesn’t mean you are a failure. These are completely separate thoughts, yet many of us blur the lines between them. Personalizing failure can wreak havoc on our self-esteem and confidence. Thomas Edison reportedly failed 10,000 times while he was inventing the light bulb. He was quoted as saying, "I have found 10,000 ways something won’t work. I am not discouraged, because every wrong attempt discarded is another step forward.” The Wright brothers spent years working on failed aircraft prototypes and incorporating their learnings until they finally got it right: a plane that could get airborne and stay there. Thus failure is only a stepping stone ahead.
2.Forget Luck, Live by Intent
A few things may happen by chance. But if you wait for the chance, good things will happen to you only when you are in your grave because things may take their time. Even quantum theory says that if you try, you can actually walk through a wall once in a “zillion” times because there is a pulsation of particles happening and you may walk through. When you live by intent and capability, it does not matter what is happening or not happening, at least you are in control of what is happening to you. It is a more stable life.
3.Drop your calculations
There is no need to aspire to greatness. If you make the focus and ambit of your life well beyond the concerns of who you are, you will anyway be a great human being. If you look at certain people, greatness happened to them not because they were seeking to be great, but because their way of looking at life was way beyond “what about me?”
4.Find your inspirations
Another important dimension is to constantly be inspired. Look at the reason why you are doing what you are doing and see the larger dimension of it, the contribution you make through every little thing you do in your life. Every action that human beings perform is a contribution to some dimension of this world. Whatever you may be doing, someone could be benefitted by it. Being conscious of your contribution will keep you inspired.
5.Be Equanimous and Exuberant
To be successful in the world, what you fundamentally need is prowess of the mind and the body. If you want to harness the mind, one of the most important qualities is equanimity. Equanimity gives you access to different dimensions of the mind. If there is no equanimity, your ability to use the mind is greatly reduced. Another important quality is on the level of your energy – you need exuberance, both physiologically and internally. Only when your energies are exuberant do you have the ability to tide over obstacles in day-to-day life and move towards your success. If equanimity and exuberance are brought into your mind and body, success will come to you much more easily.
Michael Jordan once said, 'If you quit once, it becomes a habit'. Thus even a blink of thought to quit should immediately be erased from the system. Success, they say, often takes only a few little things from us, dedication to the task in hand, hard work and an unremitting devotion that makes us not give up on the task despite all the difficulties that we face.
7. Be honest and sincere towards your work
Even if the road to your destinations seems all uphill and there are countless hurdles, remember that an honest heart and sincere dedication towards achieving your goal can and will eventually lead you to the right place and at the right time. You should always be true to yourself and be honest with the hard work that your dream demands.
8. Embrace with people and things you dislike
To handle different kinds of situations in our lives, we need different kinds of identities. If you are fluid about it, if you can change from one to another gracefully, then you can play your role to the hilt and still have no problem with it. But for most people, their personality is like a rock. It sits on them all the time and makes them suffer anything that does not fit into its ambit.
9. Have a plan
Always have a plan. Even if nothing goes according to your plan, have a backup plan. You need to be absolutely clear on how to go ahead from the point things crumbled upon. You can't be dumbfounded and expect someone to come and show you the way. You have to stand for yourself first. 'If you fail to plan, you're definetly planning to fail'.
So always be clear on that front.
10. Have love in your heart for anyone and everyone
People, when they face adversity, often become rude and their hearts fill with unnecessary agony. Everything they do ahead is only a part of revenge they seek from the society. While they may consider this huge, walking around with agony and hatred in your heart, you reach nowhere. So learn to see the good and spread the love around. What you give is what you get in return.
These are mere tips but following them would certainly make your life slightly better than what is it now!
