There are numerous questions you can ask about yourself, but do you have all the answers? Self knowledge is a term in psychology which obviously means knowing oneself. There’s nobody in this world that should know you better than you do. It’s important to be humble when thinking about oneself. Accepting our limitations and flaws is the first step towards improvement. Embracing and exploiting our strengths inspires confidence.
Having a vision and a dream for your future gives you a sense of direction. When you do so, you give yourself the power of influencing your decisions in such a way that they align perfectly with your path of achieving your destiny. Setting frequent short term goals is a brilliant way to grow and eventually fulfil your dreams.
Respect Family values
I believe the saying “Family comes first”. They brought us into this world. Our parents dream about seeing us become successful individuals from the day we are born. They share our happiness when we succeed and understand and support us when we are struck by failure. The love they give us is unconditional and that is the best kind of love. Keep your family close. They are always there for us, no matter what.
Plan your day
You will be surprised how productive your day can get it you organize it well. Break it up into segments and divide all your tasks and chores into convenient time intervals to make the best out of your daily 24 hours. Your schedule shouldn’t be cramped with everything related to work. It could include an evening walk, or an hour at the gym. Find the perfect balance of work and play.
The amount of sleep you get decides how your day is gonna go. Some may say that they can function on less hours of sleep if they have a lot of caffeine. But the fact is our body needs rest to work efficiently. At the least, a sound 6 hour sleep is a must for adults, if not more. Adequate sleep helps recharge your body and keeps you active throughout the day.
Make winning a habit
Humans are competitive. If you don’t win, you lose. It’s difficult to get rid of a habit that you practice on a daily basis. In the same way, you gotta make winning a habit. Because if you do, you will hate losing and the possibility of losing will motivate you to win. Winning overcomes the fear of being average and is a great influence on us.
With people being extremely busy chasing their dreams, they forget to take care of themselves. You need to spend some time with yourself. Self analysis and self care is important to know where you stand. Treat yourself from time to time, fulfill your materialistic dreams. While living life in the fast lane, it’s never a bad idea to slow down and enjoy the ride.
Hobbies are important
Modern day millennials complain about not having enough time for their hobbies. You gotta make time! As kids, we spent so much time on our favourite hobbies. If you want to attract girls, then a stylish acoustic guitar can be a good choice. It’s only fair that we spend at least an hour or two a week doing something we loved since we were young. So go ahead, make time and edit your schedules!
Money can’t buy you happiness. Being a serious grim person will not earn you any smiles. Spread happy vibes when you’re in a social gathering. People will develop a liking to you and automatically look at you in a positive manner. People also feed off each others emotions. So if you’re a cheerful person, chances are likely that the people around you are all cheerful. Creating a happy atmosphere keeps your mind positive and free from negative thoughts. We also know that happy people are said to live longer.
Face your fears
No good has ever come from running away from a problem. Stand your ground and figure it out. It might seem easier to push them away or completely ignore them, but the relief one gets after solving a problem is blissful. You will face a lot of problems in life, tackle them fiercely and watch yourself grow.
Undoubtedly, the most important part of decision making is prioritizing. More importantly, it comes down to what you think are your top priorities. If you have your priorities right, there’s no confusion when you come across a problem, because you already know what to do.
Our fellow mates are of unfathomable importance to us. They are always there by our side whether the times are good or bad. I call my friends my pseudo-parents because that’s exactly the role that they play in my life. Surround yourself by friends that love you and accept you for who you are.
And finally money. Although money indeed can’t buy you happiness, it can solve most, if not all your problems. A good paycheck backs you up with glorious benefits and a strong reputation. Work hard, work smart, make money and enjoy life fabulously while it lasts.
Finding the person that you are gonna commit to spend your entire life with can be intimidating. But if you do, there is no better feeling. Knowing for sure that they always have your back, the feeling is just scintillating. Finding a partner in this modern date has become easier with social media and what not, but so has ending relationships. Amidst this kind of behavior finding someone special is rare, and to those who already have, it is a blessing.
