10 Positive Affirmations For Every Day Practice

I remember when I came across those "magical statements," they totally charged my mind and beliefs- they call them "positive affirmations." These are positive statements that can help you feel motivated (upon practice), and can help you avoid negative thoughts. All you are required to do is- say them everyday. I found this method of self-improvement really empowering. Statements like;"I'm enough, I'm the change, I'm important, I'm worthy of love, etc are such powerful sayings that you can say it to yourself every day!

In today's post I am going to share few of those "powerful statements" that you must practice saying it to yourself  everyday

Much like exercise, they help in increasing the levels of feel-good-hormones. I would be  sharing such #positive #affirmations every #month. And you too can help me add to the lists. Either you can create your own list, or repeat after me:

1. Everyday I'm creating a better me.
2. I have all the qualities required for being successful.
3. I acknowledge my own self-worth.
4. I am enough to make a difference in the world.
5. I wake up today with all the energy and strengths required to make my day.
6. I am at peace with all that has happened in my life, that is happening, and will happen (found in another site that I found very motivating).
7. I can. And I will.
8. I can overcome fears by following my dreams.
9. I train my body and mind to find joy in simple things daily.
10. I have the power to create change.

How To Be Better Than The Woman You Were Yesterday

I would like to start this post by asking few questions to myself. You can always ask these questions to yourself when you begin reading today's post.

"Am I better than I was yesterday?"
"Am I doing (today) what I always wanted to do?"
"Do I 'really' love my life today?
"Am I making any personal and professional progress at present?"
"Am I more thankful for everything than I was yesterday?"
"Do I know what makes me happy and brings me joy quickly?"

And if the answers are "yes", or "almost yes," then you know that you have already started creating your desired life- and you are better than you were yesterday; or you are working towards creating your best version today.

We spend each day of our life comparing with others, and trying to be like somebody else. But have you ever imagined seeing yourself- in the "best" possible way! Have you ever wished to create the best version of you. If not, no worries; because I am going to share few of the ways I see myself now (definitely better me) than 20 yrs back. I definitely see changes (good) in me; in terms of taking complete control of my life, being determined, brave, fearless, and more realized of my strengths as well as weaknesses. Now, I'm the creator of my 'life design.'
So definitely I'm better than the woman I was yesterday.

Each day brings me new opportunities to do the things that I love doing. The "happier side" of me also never forgets that there are some things in my life that I can never change; or will never get better. But I want to be unstoppable, fly high to reach my dream; I want to do everything I once thought I can never ever do!

"Every change starts from within. Starts with constant small reminders that may whatever come our way- we will never give up!"
Just start with a conscious "yes." Maintain an interest in life, and stay cheerful all-the-time. Understand that whatever has to happen will always happen; but you will not stop finding reasons to stay alive and to stay hungry, to only settle for more!

So here are few of my ways that helped me to understand myself better and get better. Hope you find them useful too, and can relate to them in your life- for bringing a beautiful positive change:

1. We often hesitate, or find it not-that-important to consider our natural talents and abilities. We often ignore realizing our unique capabilities; because we are trained (from childhood) to focus only upon academic results, school/university performances, and certificates to prove that we are "best " in so and so field. If we are judged by our degrees/qualifications, then let me tell you that I was never good in my academics, but I was good at many other things; which I couldn't realize until I carefully listened to my inner voice.  My life was calling me- to do something big, something different, something which others may not approve and or support me for! And I had to become brave enough to start my own journey of  recognition.

2. I started to focus not just on my strengths; but also on my weaknesses. I am still working on changing my bad habits, and bad qualities. But recognizing and owning them gave me the freedom to be just-myself. No regrets, nothing to feel embarrassing about, but simple acknowledging the -ve me and changing few parts of me. 

3. Remember and recognize your value. Understand that you are good enough than any other person you know or you meet.

4. Accept where you are. Try to make peace with where you are and what you have at present. Forget comparison, jealousy and let your decisions move you in the right direction- where you intend to go.

5. Love your past to know- your past pushed you here- to a better position in life. I can relate how hard it is to forgive (I don't want to forget, so won't ask you too!) everything that you lost. But this is also true that; my past failures were my driving force behind the woman I'm today.

6. Develop more kindness and free yourself by forgiving.

7. Create more choices of purpose and don't let fear guide your choices.

These are just few suggestions that I have discovered- to make myself better. I wish to be the "best me" than I am today, and I'm constantly trying hard and working towards bringing these changes to my life. I'm not perfect, and so are you. But such small actions can make a big difference in our life; and in everybody's life whom you are related to, whom you connect with (known or strangers).

I read these lines in one of my favorite website's post and totally loved it, " So, take back your power from all the people, places, and situations where you've left it and bring it back home. Decide that your energy will be used for believing, not doubting, and for creating, and not destroying."

I hope you and me can create a better us from today, from now, right from this moment and make this world a lovely happy place to live in.

How to love your mornings

They say that, "every morning is a chance to start over."

I was never a morning person; until I started loving my mornings again, as much as I loved staying up late in the night. As far as my childhood memories tell me; I used to hate waking up early for my studies! I was more comfortable in doing late night studies. But now ever since I have realized the importance of morning,  I try my best to love my mornings, because our morning prepare us to follow the rest of the day as it unfolds.

We sometimes find it really challenging to push ourselves throughout the day; and force ourselves to act like everything is moving in the right direction, but from within we don't feel that motivation. Therefore I have learned from my experiences that, "you must feel awesome every morning as you wake up, to make your whole day fun-tastic, productive, and successful. I like to wake up feeling more productive and happy every day. "

Open your eyes each morning saying this to yourself, " today is going to be my best-day ever!"

I never did any experiments to start falling in love with my mornings; but just few realizations that helped me to comprehend the "morning love" practice. When I made the shift, I found that I had more time for myself, to do all my stuffs- important and not-so-important. I became a happier person than I was before.

Some days were effortlessly inspiring as soon I woke up; while other days I looked around really hard to find some things-to-do that can keep me motivated all-day-long. But something I quickly recognized,"if I look forward to doing my "exciting things," I would jump out of bed within no time." So I decided to feed my mind each night (before falling asleep) about the excitement of doing the "task" next day, and I loved falling asleep quickly to wake up next morning- feeling fresh and enthusiastic, to take on my day and the tasks- happily.

All I did was: "started responding to my "creative restlessness, and learned to focus on things that truly matters to me-first thing in the morning, while trying to follow the pattern rest of the day."

So these are few of the things I try doing after I wake up each morning. Hope you find them helpful too. Feel free to just pick the ones you think you can, and leave the rest:

  • Wake up feeling determined each morning like; "you are capable of moving a mountain, or you can bring a change in the world, or you can make your life an inspiration for others." Whatever the thought is, it should be mighty big enough to wake you up each morning; even before the world wakes up.
  • Do one task each morning (after you wake up) that truly excites you.
  • Learn to love what you do.
  • Each night update your next day's passion-list or creativity-list. But please be sure to know the things beforehand, that excites you, or you are passionate about doing it.
  • Try doing something new each day; or do the things that you have a desire (deep down inside you) to do.In this process of trying new things, you may find that you have a flair or a talent that you never knew about before; and you can always add new abilities to your talent list. And those tasks that make you.
  • Read few pages from your favorite book, or browse through your favorite blogs- first thing in the morning; while sipping your favorite caffeinated drink.

Creating a routine where you can bring more energy and happiness into your life while preparing yourself up for the success is what we need for creating a "new us." Let's start now, and make this year a 'year of better changes, a year of healthy choices, a year of beautiful functional mind, and a year of kindness and gratitude.
Hope you all are having a great start of the year. Just Be You. Do More. Learn More. And Be An Inspiration for others This Year.
Don't forget to leave me your thoughts about this post below. And if you really liked it, please do share with your friends, fans, and readers.
Looking forward to an amazing year 2017 for all of you and also for me- in every aspect.

5 Reasons Why To Live Your Passion and Love What You Do

First of all, Wishing You All A Very Happy New Year 2017. I am so excited about starting my first story/first day in a complete "New Year". I hope you had a blast welcoming another year to your life. I am looking forward to some more wonderful magics to happen in my life this year- with new changes and challenges. Hope you like today's post!

This post is also inspired by a book called, "Clear Seeing Place" by Author Brian Rutenberg. My love for "good" books is just increasing day by day. I have started finding peace and true joy by reading; and therefore I am all set to create a mini library for my reads and references. Anytime I feel I must bury myself within a book and stay there for some inspiration and motivation, I can do that now! I will soon share a picture of my tiny library with you all!

Therefore I believe another awesome book chose me to introduce it to my readers, ( As I was lucky to be contacted for doing a review of the *book).

If you are an artist by heart, or want to find your lost love for art or any kind of activities that you have always loved doing the most- then this book is for you. This book isn't about your hobbies, but about your passions- that you want to LIVE your entire life with! Passions that make you, "you", and for something that you want to wake up and be excited. Something that makes you the happiest, and you are unfraid of going after what you want.
I'm still reading the book, and it feels like I shouldn't put it down. Love the inspiration that I'm able to pick from the words, and experiences in all the pages. It's like, "learning from people who are doing work that they love." What can be more inspiring than real-life examples. I'm sure you will love the quotes that is shared in between the stories.

Whether you want to make a career, or live with your passion work each day takes us closer to ourselves; and help us feel the joy and freedom that we desire to make our life meaningful.

 So here are the reasons why I think you should live your passion:

1. You follow your joy.

You meet your fears and decide to go after the task you love doing the most; and you do it anyways. So the feeling of joy is definitely intense and permanent in the kind of tasks we consistently do.

2. You connect with your inspiration.

You bring those inspirations from all-around-you and create something new at your "workplace." And you wish for more learning and improving. You challenge every part of your self- to create the inspiration that's within you. And that's when magic happens!

3. You create your own world that you love.

When you live your passion, you feel more fulfilled and productive. Your work doesn't feel like a burden, or any heavy duty that you must do to receive your salary every month!

4. You live your beliefs.

You try doing things that you never knew thought you can do! You push yourself to succeed even more. You write your own story with courage and confidence.

5. Everything starts with passion.

Whether you decide upon living a healthy lifestyle, or making a career of your choice; passion drives your purpose.

If you think you must read the book, then quickly grab one today and create a place in your library. The book is worth reading. Do leave me your thoughts in the comments below. Waiting to hear from you all.
