Depending on others for happiness

This is your life and only you are responsible for the choices you make. Situations in life may or may not favorable but your outlook towards them will make all the difference. You need to be emotionally self reliant. When you have control over how you feel, you are less likely to give that control to someone else. Shut your ears to the noises of the world and listen to that inner voice…voice of your conscience that will always direct you to the right path. It’s only when you will love yourself wholeheartedly, will someone else love you.

Bottom Line: Discover the joy of sharing and giving; help others and it will make you immensely happy.

Seek validation from others

Be yourself, without wanting to impress anyone or asking for approval. Would you behave differently if no one was watching? If yes, then that is how you should behave all the time. People do not have a right to judge you but if they still do then don’t worry because they’d never know the life you are living. Focus on your self- development and learning. Water the grass at your end and it would only get greener by the day. Be the best version of yourself.


Bottom Line: Don't be afraid to walk alone! Stand up for what you believe in, even if no one else agrees!

Delve in the past/Hold on to resentment

Your life is a story book and a disinteresting chapter should not make you want to close the book! Just turn the page and move ahead. Unpleasant experiences are like chapters of a book. Holding on to any resentment will never heal your pain. Let go. Forgive others not because they need it but because it is important for your peace of mind.

Bottom Line: Learn from every experience and take a better decision for your present and future.

Mind others’ business

‘Insecurity’, ‘Lack of confidence in your own potential’ may make you worried about what someone else may be doing- it could be your ex, your batch-mate or your colleague. Instead, write down your dreams and put a date to them- make them goals and work towards them, step by step. These goals will give you a direction and any progress towards them will give you a sense of satisfaction & achievement. You will begin to respect yourself.

Bottom Line: Write down your dreams and put a date to them- make them goals and work towards them, step by step.

Lead an un-healthy life

From what you eat/drink to when you sleep- everything forms a part of our daily life. Our body is like a place of worship so treat it with care and respect. Physical and mental health is inter-connected.

Bottom Line: Eat ‘nutritious’ food, sleep well, exercise daily, spend time with family, friends and get sufficient daylight.

The 3 Cs: Crib, Complain, Criticize

As they say, “small minds discuss people…great minds discuss ideas.”  How do you see yourself? Some things in life are not in your control, so why waste energy on them. The remedy is to focus your mind and thoughts on topics that will nourish your soul, help you become a better human being.

Bottom Line: Discussing the problem cannot be a solution; instead work towards a solution.

Take life too seriously

When was the last time you said yes to a spontaneous picnic plan? Or rode a bike just for sheer enjoyment? Don’t be so serious all the time. There is fun in spontaneity. Look at kids, they are happy because they have no big plans. They set themselves free, relish every moment and are not afraid of being called silly.

Bottom Line: Rediscover the things you loved as child so that the spark in you remains alive forever. ​​​​​​​So, get to the driver’s seat, take complete control and enjoy this beautiful journey called life.
