Being Honest

Being Honest

There is no need to hide anything or play the victim card. Honesty seems difficult as it requires humility, but if followed, it is easier to be self-disciplined.

The Right Example

People won’t do what you are not doing, and they won’t do what you are doing, if you tell them to do so.

You need to do what’s right, but not have any expectations. Let your actions speak for you.

Write Daily

Putting what you are thinking on paper makes you understand yourself. Often ideas pop in the head but have to be mapped on paper to make them coherent and stable.

Scribble your thoughts, ideas, and even desires on paper, and then get back to it after a few days, using your brain as an analytical tool.

Doing What You Can

Out of the seven billion people, it’s hard to find a single person who doesn’t have any problem. To cater to these problems we have to do what we can.

We cannot stay paralyzed, complaining about the problem, but have to take action. There is always something that you can do.

Being Present

Being Present

Life happens to be present in the present moment. Being lost in your thoughts or procrastinating will not help you. You need to be disciplined enough to be able to live in the present moment. 

The day we become self-aware of our thoughts, we have defeated Time itself and can move towards what matters to us the most.

Leadership And Self-Discovery

When we get busy, we often overlook the subtle shifts in ourselves. Or we become so focused on the work that we don't realise when we move away from what we truly value.

Being the best leaders we can be require us to identify our values and then live and lead according to them. When you understand what is important to you, what energizes you, what you believe in, and where you want to be, you can make decisions confidently.

Self-Acceptance And Persona Responsibility

Self-acceptance is not about accepting your failures and carrying on exactly as before. It is about taking responsibility for your actions, accepting what is and isn't possible to change, then developing a plan to improve things.

Self-acceptance is also about accepting your strengths. When you can identify your strengths, you can leverage that to get better results.

Positive Self-Affirmation Ideas

It is better to create your own self-affirmations if you do not reverberate with the whole "I radiate beauty and grace". If you don't know how, here are some self-affirmations that inspire me:

  2. Do it today, not tomorrow.
  3. Learn to love the difficult.
  4. Just get done with it and move on!
  5. So what!? Stop taking everything so seriously.
  6. Stop overthinking and let's go!
  7. I am a finisher. I am almost there!

Remember, self-affirmations are your core values.

Risks of Ignoring The Opportunity Cost

It's easy to overlook the cost of hypothetical opportunities. But if neglected, opportunity costs will negatively impact your life, career, and relationships.

  • Working on autopilot means you put in the hours and get paid, but you end up with nothing: no important knowledge, experience, or assets. If you want to have a satisfying career, you can't afford this.
  • Missed Return On Investments (ROI). Our time and resources are investments. Ask yourself if you could be spending your time on something more effective.

Prioritize Your Options

If you want to become more aware of opportunity costs in your career, prioritize the important work.

Make a list of your top 5 priorities, keep it in a visible place, and live according to those priorities.
