“The spotlight hadn’t dimmed as Molly grew but had changed its glow instead.”

Are you also wondering about how to make everyone -parents, siblings, family, society- appreciate your presence and thereby feel proud of you? Well, if you are, then this one’s for you!

The society’s spotlight is always on us, their continuous interfering or ‘concern’, whatever you want to call it. Do you reckon it will fade away? Well, Let us see. From crib to grave, we find everyone looking at us, everyone bothered about us, isn’t it? In this hassle, we often forget there’s someone who’s more significant or rather matters more, yes! it’s the person who’s life it is.

Be that as it may, it’s okay to mind others views about you. But, never forget, at the end of the day only one person is of utmost importance to you: you yourself. The sooner we realize it, the better off we all will be. Because if we don’t, well time is definitely going to be the last resort, but trust me, that is the last teacher one wants to opt for. Everyone perceives it, but the one’s who are late in the line are the ones who regret. Observe, comprehend and then utilize and act. The limelight never vanishes, so should we conceal ourselves in the locker? No, make the limelight your stage – the one where you will play and the public’s gonna clap.

Want to make people admire and value you? Well, start appreciating your own-self first. Does it matter what others regard you as? I’d be lying if i said no, but is it everything? No, it’s just a peck on the radar. Most of us throw our lives down the drain thinking that no one cares, that’s where the ‘victimhood’ starts. If you start bothering about people and thus start implementing what they want you to, they will for sure give you a pat on the back. But, if you rather endeavour to chase your beliefs, you would feel proud about yourself, even if you fail. And, believe you me, nothing compares to self satisfaction. We burden ourselves by others remarks cause’ that’s what we have made our success scale, these parameters bury us so deep that we never overcome them. But just remember, a step to improve things is the difference between the one at the top and the one who’s still wishing for stuff to happen. And this first stair is the most tiresome or difficult part, but with some patience, hard work and perseverance, one can turn the tables or flip the coin of the their life.

On a personal thought, honestly, I too consider it to be extremely vexing to implement all this just like you. We all struggle, the one who writes it and the one who reads, but not giving up is the key. Don’t be someone who kills the caterpillars and complains why there are no butterflies. Start by making yourself feel contended and proud, the horde will follow, this answers the question we started with. These dots are your life, imploring to be filled………………

5 things you need to know in your youth

(lines inspired by Robin Sharma)

1) You can play with toxic people, or you can live world class, but you can’t do both.

2) Everything that happens to you is for your growth- a bad day for ego is a great day for the soul.

3) It doesn’t matter what others are doing, all that matters is who you are becoming & how far you have travelled. Remember, comparison is the thief of joy.

4) Delete the people who steal your joy – have the courage to remove the one’s who are bringing you down.

5) The most loving person in the room wins.

Failure means ‘Loser’?

Hey! I’m just a teenager, with little experience (as my parents would say), bear with me…………you won’t regret :))

Since childhood we’ve been taught that results define an individual, no matter how much hard work you’ve done, if you don’t succeed at the end then you are considered as a loser, isn’t it? And as we grow up, we too start perceiving the world in the same way. We tend to be okay with living a mediocre life just because we think we aren’t good enough, we prefer to be in our own comfort zones, and we start aspiring for things which are easily accessible to us.

Should we always be ‘cautious’ in life? Should we take every decision considering the repercussions it may have? Well, most of the people will tell you yes, but remember always weigh things yourself before coming to any conclusion. Let’s say what worse can happen if you take a risk in life? You’ll fail, that’s it! The fact that everyone brags about the adage,”Failure is as important as winning,” but in reality we all are terrified to fail.

A footballer who scores an astounding goal in the match, has likely failed numerous times in the practice. A public speaker who now speaks so boldly that even our heart starts appreciating him, once used to go weak in knees while speaking in front of an audience. A swimmer who can now effortlessly cross the lake, has in the past almost drowned in the swimming pool. That’s how we all start! It starts with pain, it takes patience & perseverance, and it ends with peace. It doesn’t matter how many times you fall, what matters is how many times you stand up. “People will break you, rate you, shake you, hate you, criticise you, laugh at you, but how strong you stand is what makes you.”

We need to break the stereotypes. Be proud of your mistakes & failures, as much as you’re proud of your success. Not giving up is the key to your success. Stop comparing yourself to others. God has made you unique, and you can do wonders. Above all, dont be afraid to fail, cause’ in order to stand up you must know what falling down is like. Take risks, where others find it impossible to do, you should look for opportunities in it. Society will laugh at you, taunt you, just because you tried to do something which everyone considered as unconventional. Just smile, and move on!

If you’ve read it till now, then either you know me personally or you too are a struggler like me. Well, I’ll assume the latter, so here’s something for you. Go and stand in front of a mirror, talk to yourself, that what you have done till now & what you will do in future. And promise yourself that no matter how life unfolds, YOU WONT GIVE UP! YOU WILL MAKE YOURSELF PROUD! We all need a soldier in our lives, well be your own soldier. No one’s gonna do it for you. It’s your own struggle, and you will be the only one bearing the fruits from it. And today, today if you grow a cactus, then in future dont criticise or question God that why there aren’t flowers in your life.

Stop questioning, stop finding excuses, stop saying that it’s all about luck. Start working hard, start believing in yourself, start breaking the system – which teaches you that grades are everything, that failure means you’re a loser, that people are born intelligent. Strive and then you’ll succeed. Push yourself, and leave your comfort zone, start doing things which you always wanted to, even if your parents get against you, cause remember when you will achieve it they will be the ones applauding you cheerfully in the crowd. Take a step, and the world is yours, cause’ remember you were born to rule this world.
