Very often we fall sick and we battle it out, without any rocket science effort. But have you ever thought of climbing Everest with a broken backbone? Things really turn out to be upside-down for people who meet with an accident or for people ailing with Cancer or for people who feel there is no treatment for their disease and left with nothing other than counting the last few days of their life. You can win against all odds. The most effective way to combat your physical problems is to ignore it like a piece of garbage. Rise up to the occasion; make the most out of your living.
So have you been just diagnosed with Cancer, have you just lost your eye-sight, or a limb in a major vehicle accident? Or have you just been told that you can’t lead a normal life-style because of the dreaded disease? Understand and accept the fact that nothing can be changed, but at least tell yourself that you can win against all odds.
There are many heart-broken individuals like you, suffering, dependant and getting prone to the sympathies of people, day after day. Wake up! No you don’t require an injection of adrenaline to walk on your feet; just a NEVER SAY DIE attitude will suffice in order to turn things around.
Lead by example; feel that you have to lead a normal life even after knowing you cannot. You have to tell your story to the human race and to the people ailing with their respective drawbacks and earning their daily dose of empathy and disappointment. Help your fellow beings, encourage them to live more, remember the trauma you have experienced, absorb it from those ailing in a similar fashion like you. So the objective is clear, you have to win the heart of your innocent fellow beings who are unaware of the extremities of satisfaction and bliss, life can ever lend them.
Living Example: - Seven times Tour de France champion, Lance Armstrong was diagnosed with testicular Cancer on 1996. Only with minute chemotherapy, his ability to fight back and faith gave him the confidence to combat the disease and today he is a living example of one who survived Cancer. Indeed he says, ‘Cancer is the best thing that could have ever happened to me’. He also established the Yellow ribbon Cancer Foundation in the heart of United States helping thousands of people each year.
Helen Keller was blind, deaf and mute. Today she is an icon of hope and joy to all the physically handicapped people. Learn from the extra-ordinary efforts of this ordinary people. You can be an inspiration to all those waiting for an angel to come and embrace them, absorb all the pain and sorrow. Let it be you, who make a difference.
Understand the depth and severity of your problem. Think what is achievable within your limits to bring a smile at least on the face of one person, brooding on a life threatening illness. Try to live for others and never give an opportunity to people trying to show some sort of sympathy towards you. Always remember, ‘when the going gets tough, the tough gets going’. This will perpetually help you to fight against all obstacles. As long as possible, make it a point that you are never going to be physically dependent on somebody. You don’t need mental support as you are a tough nut to crack. Whenever you feel lonely, speak with the nature and share all your grief and sorrow. If nature can tame, it can also console and offer you her most comfortable bosom.
Being afraid of the unknown and the unseen is not new to us, but the trick lies in overcoming this nervousness by conquering the realms of the mind. Fear, after all, is born and nurtured in its folds. Try these simple affirmation statements that help surmount fear:
• Flush out beliefs and notions that the current challenge is beyond your capacity to conquer. • Overcome the resistance to deal with a challenge. • Throw away all pre-conceived blocks against the challenge. • Do not underestimate your potential to handle and resolve a challenge. • Accept and understand that avoiding the problem does not help in overcoming it. • Learn to enjoy the challenge as it releases your creative juices and you are forced to think beyond the obvious.
Ever wondered why we resist change? Change of job? Change of city? A major part of the resistance to change comes from the fact that change throws us off gear and distorts a routine that has almost become second nature to us.
Though change may seem to be negative, if one studies it deeply, one will understand it as a positive force.
• One easy way to gel into this seemingly-difficult mould would be to resist fighting change and put full faith in the Laws of the Universe. • View yourself and the change from a third perspective to gauge what is best for you. • Maintaining a focus on the results rather than the transition per se, • Extract the maximum from change by viewing it as an opportunity in disguise.
Do you dream enough? Do you give a thought to those dreams the following morning? Are they just fleeting images of a subconscious mind? Have you wondered how to make your dreams come true?
Interestingly the answer is simple enough. You can live a great dream if you pursue it. The concept of Opportunity knocking on your door is ok but the key lies in whether you want to wait till it does. You need to make your own opportunities, create your own chances to make your dreams come true. Your future and your dream are not things to be left to chance or destiny; it is more relevant to the choice you make.
Very often people spend a lifetime waiting for the “ideal opportunity” but there is no ideal opportunity. Seizing common occasions and making the most of them are how extraordinary opportunities defined. A misfortune is very much an opportunity in disguise. Remember there are golden opportunities all around you and if you are willing to open your eyes to them they are yours for utilizing.
Start today right where you are. Turn your dreams into reality and live your dreams by pursuing them.
Pep Quote “The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.” -- Eleanor Roosevelt
“Courage is not the absence of fear but rather the judgment that something else is more important than fear.” -- Ambrose Redmoon
Our deepest, darkest fears always haunt us. Many a time we get up with a cold sweat and are petrified thinking about something that frightens us infinitely. It's not just in some of us; it’s in everyone.
These fears are manifestations of our insecurities and the moment we let go of them we are free from the shackles of fear that always imprison us within them. There is a choice we can make between accepting and living with our fears or overcoming them. Our choice is what makes the difference.
As we are liberated from our own fears, our presence automatically liberates others. And when we let our own light shine, we encourage others around us to do the same.
Seemingly insurmountable obstacles or hopeless situations present themselves in our lives with punishing regularity. The secret in scoring over these is to adopt a very healthy picture of us overcoming these hindrances and winning over them.
The skill of mental visualization has been the key to success for many people. They visualize the important event in their minds before they happen. Try to picture yourself in your mind as having achieved your goal. Think of the things you would be doing once you have attained your goal.
See the things you want as already yours. Think of them as yours, as already in your possession. You can live your dreams if you pursue them.
Your subconscious picture of being successful determines very largely to what you can achieve. At the start of your day, for instance try to imagine the day to be very successful and pleasant. You would be surprised by the outcome!
Pep Quote “I have been driven many times to my knees by the overwhelming conviction that I had nowhere else to go.” --Abraham Lincoln (1809-1865)
Has anyone told you ever that you cannot even dream of success if you do not have a plan? And did you feel that things never really do work according to your plans?
There are very few people, in fact, who will find things going as planned. And that is not to say that un-planned events do not meet with success. Consider evening-outs, parties, etc. They are successes even when planned – and they can be disastrous when things do not go as planned.
On the other hand a spontaneous evening out with your friends or family, or even a chance acquaintance might bring such joy and satisfaction that the good fortune amazes you.
There is little doubt that a clearly defined plan paves your road to achieve success. In fact meticulous planning will enable everything you do to appear spontaneous to other people.
But do not be disheartened if things do not go as planned. If that promotion, the net profits, the contracts, the test paper did not get you the results you had planned on the basis of, and even prepared for not sparing the smallest of efforts. Be prepared instead – that things can go outside of your plan.
The bottom-line for success is not just the roadmap you laid out. But your ability to keep an open mind, a positive – never say die -- attitude when things do not go as planned.
Pep Quote People of mediocre ability sometimes achieve outstanding success because they don't know when to quit. Most men succeed because they are determined to. --George E. Allen
