CLEARN TO LET GO BUT DONíT GIVE UP!

Girija Naiksatam


Barkha Dutt is one of the top journalists the country has been witness to. In a field dominated by men, she made a mark for herself by reporting live from the bunkers of Kargil. Even today, she continues to cross frontiers and undertake assignments even her male counterparts would reconsider. And yet, she still thinks she's got a long way to go! What did she do so differently to have success embrace her with open arms? She controlled her own destiny by aiming high. Here are a few tips to help you aim higher as well:

1. Break all perceived boundaries to lead
Most people prefer to let the confines of their profession define the heights that they can achieve. The remaining few decide to make their own mark by defining these new heights and setting standards for their successors. The first question thus becomes, which of the two would you like to be - a leader or a successor?

2. Do not get scared of roadblocks
Where there is a will there is a way. And where there is a way, there is a roadblock. Your grit and determination will define whether or not you allow that roadblock to burn your fire out. A great way of looking at dilemmas is by seeing them as opportunities for growth. People who learn from their own mistakes often tend to learn valuable lessons for life.

3. Obsess about your final goals
Set your standards high and don't go easy on yourself once you've got your mind set on achieving something. Under no circumstances should you be willing to compromise. In the case where you do, you automatically lower the bar for yourself; consequently becoming more lax and maybe even losing sight of your goal.

4. Set goals in tune with your potential
Often, we tend to make the mistake of modeling our goals based on someone else's achievements. Everybody functions differently; what may be easy and achievable for someone may be a tough task for you. Set your goals accordingly.

5. Always push yourself
Push yourself to achieve Just a little more. Most athletes apply this rule to their practice sessions; when they sense final fatigue where they feel as though they'd collapse if they didn't stop, they press on for a few strides more in order to gauge how much more they can push their bodies. This rule is a classic and works fabulously in most professions and tasks that make rigorous demands on the mind and body.

Keep in mind that you chalk and steer your own course, for it is the decisions that you make now that will decide whether you fly high or fall low in the future. So go on, control your own destiny. Make success yours!

HOW FAR AWAY ARE YOU FROM SUCCEEDING


One of the world's top leadership experts and the author of 10 international bestsellers on leadership and personal success, Robin Sharma (www.robinsharma.com) says in his blog: "In my work as a success coach with people around the world, I've realized that lasting personal change does not require you to turn your life upside down. The best way to get to your greatness is through small, continuous steps-what I call the "1% Wins". If you improve your health only 1% each day for the next 30 days, you will see a 30% increase in that dimension of your life in only 1 month."

This should say it all. Whether it is losing weight, thinking positive, waking up early, making more money, working harder, having a happier home, a loving relationship, one step at a time is what it takes to reach the final goal. And though the goal may seem far away - 20 kgs to lose!, Even 50 gms a day would mean 0.5 kgs in 10 days, 1.5 kgs in a month, and 16 kgs in the year!

When you want to achieve something, whatever it may be, you can do it if you start taking the steps and simply keep the goal in mind. Do not look at the number of steps, because the goal may just seem further away, and the steps too many. Instead if you make a kick start and keep going never losing vision of your goal, you will achieve what you want before you know it! Start today...

 
FIVE-STEP GUIDE TO OVERCOMING FEAR


Fear! Itís one of the biggest obstacles keeping us from living life to the fullest. Most of our fears are irrational and unnecessary, yet we find it difficult to let go of them.

Here are 7 tips to help you overcome your fears and take control of your life.

Step 1: Identify your fear
Putting a name to your fear is the first and most essential step to overcoming it. Once youíve identified your fear, it is easier to look at it like it's just another challenge that needs to be dealt with.

Step 2: Analyze your fear
Analyzing your fears will help you see just how irrational they are. List down reasons stating why it is unnecessary for you to be paralyzed by this fear. Then think of other people who aren't troubled by the fear at all, and ask yourself why is it that they arenít affected by this fear when you are.

Step 3: Put your fears into perspective
We tend to make mountains out of molehills when weíre plagued with fear. It always helps to put matters into perspective and take an objective look at ourselves and our fears.

Step 4: Practice systematic desensitization
Many psychologists recommend this technique for overcoming fear. The idea is to get a little closer to the object of your fear each time you are around it. Get used to the way the fear makes you feel. Eventually, it will not have the capacity to create fearful emotions in you any more.

Step 5: Donít obsess over fear
Don't obsess over fearful or troubling thoughts. This can be challenging in itself, but is very necessary.
 
HOW TO STAY FOCUSED IN LIFE

Tanya Munshi


In life, there are several distractions and always will be. Itís up to us how we stay focused in our head and heart and follow our goals. Here are some tips to stay focused in life.

Time Management
o Firstly, accept the fact that you have only 24 hours and seven days a week.
o Hence, time management is very important as that will help you in achieving the maximum in minimum time and effort.
o Planning a week ahead on a Sunday is very useful. Write down the things to be done in a diary or a white board in order of priority.
o As far as possible, stick to the priority wise objectives and tick them once theyíre done.
o Initially, it may not be easy to stick to a plan, but you will gradually see your efficiency and productivity increasing and you will no longer run out of time.

Goal Management
o Set smaller, achievable goals. For instance, if you want to score a high percentage in your exams then your goals should be to study a few hours daily rather than finish studying an entire chapter. If you try and complete an entire subject, it may not only be difficult but it can leave you nervous and under-confident.
o Rate your performance on a scale of 1 to 10, but be honest to yourself.
o Compare your present performance with the past to check your progress.
o Only if you are able to judge yourself honestly can you push yourself to do better.

Personal Management
o Meditation and yoga can help you to concentrate and stay focused.
o Visualize success before dozing off to sleep and just when you wake up. Affirm success and ingrain it into your mind and body.
o Seek advice and guidance from a trusted person such as a parent, a senior, a teacher or a counselor.
o Accept the fact that there will always be distractions, there will be people doing better than you and may be Ďluckierí than you. But you need not waste time on worrying; instead, use the time to better yourself.
o Study tactics used by successful people, maybe it can give you a hint.
