We have grown old by one more year 🙂
Last year we took so many resolutions. Some accomplished but many unsuccessful. Year passed like a ray of light. We witnessed the light but couldn’t sustain its brightness.
It’s been a habit of all of us to take ‘New Year Resolution’. We are damn sure you have one for coming year also!
What is that?
Is it to be regular in your study?
Is it to start the preparation all afresh?
Is it ‘is sal to UPSC fod dena hi bhai’ ? 🙂
Similar but different in orientation? Not all of us prepare for UPSC, ofcourse! 🙂
Let us talk about reality!
Many of us take resolutions to fade away from its vibe in few days or months. Why is it so?
There are several factors that are in play here. As a human being we tend to be emotional in no time, be nostalgic, dream big, be optimistic etc etc. While we do so, the relative energy that is driving the positivity gets repugnant without any effort to carry forward the zeal in the right direction. When we think too much without actually doing it, we will get bored of it. This is because our mind wants it but no action gives shady results. This vicious cycle put a shield on our mind and one good day, we even stop dreaming big!
The importance of Dreaming Big
All of us Dream Big. Why wouldn’t we?
How many of us live up to our dreams and taste its success? Few!
What differentiates us with successful dreamers – action, ability to take risks and power to focus in hard time!
Action decides the path to get what you dream?
How to get what you want? You’ve heard the expression, “What you see is what you get.”
Someone said “If you look at a tree long enough, it will move.” We see what you want to see.
Nothing controls our life more than our self-image. We live like the person we see in the mirror. We are what we think we are. If you don’t think you’ll see be successful, you won’t.
You can’t be it if you can’t see it. Your life is limited to your vision. If you want to change your life, you must change your vision of your life.
Ability to take Risks!
When you have a set goal with a proper action plan, it is obvious to take risks to achieve the same. Risk is risk either calculated or miscalculated. The end result on positive note depends on your courage to take that risk with hell lot of determination to achieve it, whatsoever it takes.
Power to Focus in hard time!
Nothing comes without hardship. Neither you success!
Consider this narration by a football coach
“I told them that if I laid a two-by four plank across the room, everybody there would walk across it and not fall, because our focus would be that we were going to walk that two-by-four.
But if I put that same two-by-four plank above 10 stories high between two buildings, only a few would make it, because the focus would be on failing. Focus is everything. The team that is more focused today is the team that will win this game.”
I told my team not to be distracted by the crowed, the media, or the possibility of losing, but to focus on each play of the game itself just as if it were a good practice session.
Can you relate it with your presence of mind? Your ability to focus.
Let us take this new year resolution on the above lines to
& to FOCUS HARD
A very Happy New Year to all of you!
P.S- We are family now so we shared this moment with all of you. Do share your New Year Resolution too 🙂
