Types of people

Category 1: Losers

People who always see negative in everything and put in the least amount of effort or no effort at all. They are least bothered about what is happening around them. They will only crib and complain about how the world is. They will say something like – 

  • Man, the job market is so tough.
  • I hate my job!
  • My business sucks!
  • I could have been more successful if it wasn’t for the company/ manager/ friend/ family/ a particular situation!
  • All my colleagues are losers.
  • Money is not everything, Money will not make you happy!

Category 2: Comforters

These are the people who get comfortable in life and put in minimal efforts to stay afloat. These people just focus on hitting targets. Even if they fall short, it does not bother them. Be it in job, business or health. They will set a goal of losing 5 kg but will settle even if they reduce weight by 2 kg. They will prefer going for movies, hanging out with friends, relaxing on the couch over the weekend instead of reading a book or watching educational videos. They will ask their friends to shut up if they give them advice on work, business or how to become successful. They will label others as “Kitabi Keeda (Nerd), Padhaku, Studious, Loser” etc but in reality, they themselves are semi-losers. They will say something like:

  • I am doing my best to hit my goals.
  • It is so difficult to start your own business.
  • I tried reading a book but it's not for me.

Comforters try to console themselves by telling themselves that they are doing good, or that they are better than others. They always have an excuse for not doing something or not being able to achieve something. They are happy with what they have.

Category 3: Averagers

These are the people who do what they are supposed to do, sometimes creating small success, meeting their goals, or keeping bosses happy. They work hard or pretend to be working hard when it is required for the company or doing what is required for business. They could be on the top 5 performers list. They may read a book once a while if their friends suggest or they may watch some motivational video, but that drive soon fades away, and they go back to their average lives. They have many pending books to read. They buy books but don’t finish them. They would say something like :

  • I am doing good at work.
  • I met my target.
  • Yes , I read that book but I'm not yet finished. Will finish it soon. That soon never comes.
  • I can't take this risk; I have so much responsibilities.
  • Getting into a business is hard.
  • I know the value of money and how important it is.

Category 4: Unstoppables

These are the people who take massive action. They create remarkable success very often. Winning is a habit for them. They are addicted to success. They are looked upon by others as extraordinary humans. They are the people who work extra hours and know how to work smart. Management loves them because they are highly productive. They are people who have started their own businesses and committed to making it big someday. They read books very often, go to seminars, hang out with leaders, have big goals, will be well known for something great, their family loves them but sometimes they are too busy with work. They inspire others to come out of their comfort zone. They become a benchmark for people around them. People tell them things like: slow down; your goals are unrealistic; you are crazy; you are studious; etc. This is what they say:

  • I want to make things happen.
  • I have a mission.
  • I know nothing comes easy in life.
  • I'll do it.
  • I love doing this.

WHY WORRY
  • Some things in life are beyond our control. When we are in that situation, we feel overwhelmed as we try everything in our power to control it. But that is useless!
  • The founders of WhatsApp did not get jobs at Twitter and Facebook when they applied, which worked out in their favor in the future. Hence, what we see as bad at one point in time can turn out to be the best thing to happen to us.
  • Think: Is this in my control? If yes, you can do something about it. If no, then you cannot do anything about it. Therefore, in both circumstances, why worry

Life’s Amazing Secrets

by Gaur Gopal Das

Greater Focus

Be in the Now, realizing that the only available and real moment is the present moment is the best way to live. Apart from the Now, the rest is just unrealized fiction and bad memories no one cares about.

To increase one’s focus on the now, we have to let go of distractions and options that hinder our thinking and create doubt and uncertainty in us.

Focus on what matters
  • Write down the end goal.
  • Divide the goal into specific actions you need to take to get there. Think in terms of systems: focussed, routine actions that you can do daily.
  • List all your tasks and rank them according to effort and impact. This makes prioritizing tasks easier.
  • Do the highest priority task using focused, distraction-free blocks of time.
  • Keep repeating this until you achieve your goal
