In our whole life, we complain about the surroundings which never allow us to be successful in life. But we forget that the surrounding is out of our control but the life is under our control. Remember that we never see the world as it is but we see it as we are. And this is the reason why different people have different perspectives about life.
Out of these only the most intellectual and powerful ones see the world as an opportunity. They do not flow with the life as it is. Instead, they give a direction to their lives. It’s never too late to be successful. The path towards a successful life can start at school or college or job or after retirement or even at your eighties. Life is so amazing and so un-explainable. Go and enjoy it!
Here are few things to avoid to become successful in life.
1. Don’t Try To Be Versatile
Instead of going through all other versatile events in your life, try to master only a few arts. Choose those arts in which you find your deepest interest and excellence. That’s why most effective people concentrate in their areas of excellence.
Oscillating over a variety of fields makes you a superficial being. In the attempt to become a so called multi-talented you would be left only as a hollow person from inside. You would miss the opportunity to go deep into the field and enjoy its every essence. So better is to focus on at least 3 things in your life. One is your passion, the other your hobby and the third is the one in which you are already god gifted.
2. Avoid Comparisons
Comparison in itself is a negative word. It is the origin of inferiority. Intentionally or unintentionally, comparing your skills with others would definitely somewhere make you realize your drawbacks. You are unique. You can never be like somebody else. Everyone has their own style. Even a boy and a girl think and act differently. Children and adults behave differently. Introverts and extrovert analyze the situations differently. Everywhere there is uniqueness.
No Xerox can ever exist in this world. Live your life in your own way. Compare yourself with your own self. Keep on analyzing yourself. Set challenges with your own self. Remember that no one has control over their feelings. You are not “MAHAMANAV”. You would be affected by something which makes you feel inferior. So better try to extract the best tips and techniques from someone better than you and apply it to your life in your own way.
3. Avoid Staying in Comfort Zone Forever
Become the CEO of your life. Don’t allow it to rest except poorly tired. God has given this brain and body to polish it and increase its stamina, not to give it limitless comforts. You are here to keep on moving and do something excellent. Don’t allow your life to flow as it is. Give a direction to your life.
Here is a story of a boy. Whenever this boy saw that a glass was about to fall off a counter, rather than rushing to save it from falling, he would cover his ears with his hands so he could not hear it smash. Here the point is that we need to keep our eyes and ears open to all realities of life. If we don’t act on life and take actions to make thing happen, it will act on us and give us results we might not want.
So better stand up and take your responsibility. Only you can do something for yourself. Try something new to make your aim in life and make it an adventurous journey
4. Avoid the Monkey Mind
To get the best from life, you must be completely present and mindful in every minute of every hour of every day. Yet on most days our mind is at turn different places at a single time. Instead of enjoying that very instant, we unknowingly wonder in a dreamy world which had no relation with the reality or in fact it is never going to happen exact reality. In this way we cheat with our reality. We become so messed up with our thoughts that we slowly loose our control over our thoughts. We star behaving like unchained monkey, running from place to place without any pause for peace.
By developing present moment awareness, you will not only feel calmer in your life, you will also unlock the fullness of your minds potential. When too many distractions competes your attention, the power of mind is dissipated. So better master yourself to focus only and only on the present. No future no past no dreaminess. Face and enjoy the reality to its fullest.
5. Avoid Junk Food
As we know healthy mind lives in healthy body. It is impossible to become successful if you can’t take care of your own health. Most important factor which affects your body is what you eat. If you are eating junk food, you are using harmful fertilizer for a sensitive plant.
Always remember that this body is like a vehicle to survive in this world. That’s why always take care of it. Eat healthy and stay healthy to become successful in life.
Additional Tip 😉 Try Meditation
