In a Nutshell, Seize the Moment

Sorrow gives way to delight and vice versa. Just like sunset makes room for darkness and after a heavy rain there’s a rainbow. The interaction between these sequential elements is what life is all about.

Life is like a rollercoaster, when you head upwards everything seems to be bright and promising and as soon as you head down, it feels like you wish for your coffin to come embrace you and put an end to your miserable life.
When everything goes according to plan, you feel your soul is crowned with a halo but when doors slam in your face, you just sink in despondency and melancholy.

Seizing the moment is the only powerful sort of action you can do after coming to this conclusion that nothing lasts forever and that’s just a figment of your imagination. Personally speaking, I don’t even believe that the let downs I face are meant to be fierce and drastic.

My mindset is kind of on the loose because I set it to firmly believe that everything happens for a Good reason, it’s only us that decide whether to stand with a spoon or a bucket aside life’s overflowing river. To get this much more clearly, I believe that the Almighty God answers in three ways. Yes because you deserve it, No because you deserve better, or Not yet because the best is yet to come.

I know it’s easy said than done because it’s a human nature to get upset and sad after you get knocked down, but we need to learn the art of getting up after getting knocked down and forget history and aim higher.


Changing the Awkward Reality

It is mostly taken for granted that history is bound to repeat itself. People do often think that today is but a mirror image of yesterday and that the future is going to be the same as today.

But the fact is that everything is constantly and imperceptibly changing without even being aware of that. It’s probably the inability to catch up the changing reality that ultimately leads to failures. And so people fall in the trap of some superstitious thoughts such as blaming the stars or lucky charms, or even blaming whole society and economy.

Reality is an amalgamation of space and time which are two non-static concepts that are in constant dynamic motion. It is an undeniable fact that every moment is different and unique and every incident has many hues of reality. Changing the negative and awkward reality needs examining the negative beliefs we have had in our past experiences because they hold us back. Likewise, we must let the belief that the world is persistently changing and that you are the creator of your own reality kick in.

It all starts from within. Once you master the art of optimism and creating your own world in which you can actively fit in, you will gradually climb the ladder of success and perhaps have your fingerprint on someone’s heart. 

Remedy for being Paranoid

Self Leadership is one of the potentials you can use in your everyday routine to improve your own life and to protect yourself from potential harm as well. It’s incredibly essential if you aspire to be an influential leader. 

 Paranoia in a nutshell is an attitude. Every one of us has that voice that echoes in our head that sort of perceives and senses certain happenings that something was about to occur and it probably did or maybe it didn’t. According to those experiences, we   might get paranoid due to the angle from where we looked at the whole matter. Well, now an ordinary optimist says the glass is half full whereas the pessimist says the glass is half empty; and there could be another third party that could be Super Optimist who might say that the glass is full (with water and air) and it’s about to overflow like a fountain.

That intuition isn’t a supernatural element but a gut feeling we have. So we have to reform that instinct within and be an inverse paranoid human being to improve our life quality by learning to trust ourselves and know we have the power within us to make good decisions because simply the more you look for the good in things, the sooner and more often it will show up.

To wrap things up, in order to be a successful person or leader you have to start seeing problems as opportunities – which is unfortunately not hereditary -for that’s the single way to boost your self confidence and self esteem to feel way far empowered.

Consumption and Production Imbalance

Without a shadow of doubt, almost every person, no matter which spot on earth he is standing with his one pair of feet, is a definite full-time consumer victim.

It is deceptively simple that all full-time consumers are far off the production platform. There’s always this sparkling horizon that’s brings forth new stuff every day in every field you can think of, be it a new song, movie, or simply a new everything. And so, you keep up doing your best to save cash for that new iphone or movie to watch at the movies with your friends by the weekend.

It’s a problematic lifestyle that would hinder you from catching up. No matter what, you will be behind simply because there is always something to consume. Once we fall deeper in that trap of consumption trying to fill a void, somewhere along the line we forget that it is an ever-important thing to simultaneously be a balanced consumer and producer. Instead of just watching TV, reading books, or playing video games we need to change our characteristics and be at least to a certain extent productive by creating ideas for TV, writing, and programming.

Once you are aware of your positioning in the spectrum between consumer and producer, it would make you change the imbalance to strive for the betterment of your life achieving some goals and be among the successful who contribute in their society.
