You are your best help. Don’t look to others when you are down, get up and get going- if someone lends a helping hand, treat it as a bonus; don’t ever take anybody’s help for granted and don’t depend on it either. It’s only when you feel responsible for yourself, for your troubles, your failures, your disappointments and your problems that you will realise that you have to tide over them too. So, if you are down, fill yourself up with courage and get going- no one’s coming to pick you up. ~Latika Teotia
You don’t have to be apologetic about your life nor are you supposed to look over your shoulder for someone else’s approval about how you should live. This is YOUR life; feel free to choose your style, your friends and how you wish to live. You don’t have to change yourself just to suit someone else’s needs.
Let them know that you are flexible but you have a spine; let no one trample over you- no matter how close (that person may be). If a relationship isn’t working, just walk out; let the other person know that you have moved on. Someone better will come along sooner or later, someone who’ll love you unconditionally- have the patience to wait and till then enjoy being single. It’s your life let no one dictate your actions or directions. ~Latika Teotia
Taking risk is a part of the lives of successful people. Nothing can be gained by being afraid of stepping out of your comfort zone. You can work to your fullest under pressure with adrenaline pumping in your veins. Even animals perform better under stress; the tiger chases the deer because it knows it’ll have to go hungry otherwise and the deer flees for its life.
It is out of fear of the unknown or underestimating your inner strength that you are not able to realize your true worth. Be bold, take a step forward. Go about your fears logically, make a list of what you are afraid of, think of what is the worst that can happen, what are the options available, what are the risks involved, what can possibly go wrong and then you’ll have a clear picture. Thereafter, chalk a path and stick to it. Adopt a positive attitude towards your goal or objective or job or relationship or whatever you are pursuing and you’ll find that the positive vibes enrich the environment. Once you’ve come out of such a situation you’ll have the confidence to face anything. Taking risks will become a second nature. ~Latika Teotia
The dreamers, the doers and the successful ones always catch the limelight; I want to include those that tried too in this category. ~Latika Teotia
We can’t just sit and wish about this and that, we have to make efforts. Just dreaming about something and not doing anything about it is called day dreaming. Therefore, you need to work in that direction and take a step forward. Yes, the first step is the most difficult one but remember, every journey, long or small, begins with the first step. With a dream in your eyes, hope in your heart, trust in your ability and unshakeable faith in God, no journey is too difficult nor is any dream too big. With God as your guide, you are much stronger than your troubles, so go ahead take the first step and the rest will be a cake walk. ~Latika Teotia
Don’t give power to others to control your emotions or make you feel inadequate or remind you of your limitations and generally have power over your life. Frankly speaking you don’t need such people- avoid them and keep them miles away from you. You alone are aware of your limitations and your strengths, I’m sure you are capable of handling your life well. God has made you worthy, so inspire, push and help yourself. Remember, God helps those who help themselves. ~Latika Teotia
When someone leaves you at your weakest moment you feel that the sky has fallen on you. A feeling of being dumped after being used fills you; your very being cries out from deep within.
That is the time you have to become strong- which you are. It is they who have been mean, broken your trust, shattered the faith you had in them and generally behaved like rats on a sinking ship. That’s when you should understand that you are no sinking ship but a properly grounded person, someone to whom everyone turns for help or advice and a lighthouse which has guided many ships during storms.
Let them find out that you don’t break down so easily- you are made of much sterner stuff. It is they that have lost a good friend, an able guide, a reliable companion and a very strong person. It is they who should feel lost and at sea. Good riddance. Move on and shine bright. ~Latika Teotia
The troubled times that you go through are not meant to break you, instead they are meant to show you the hidden strength that lies within. It is at times like this when you thought you are broke that you suddenly discover that you have a pile of cash stashed away which you had completely forgotten about. Draw upon those hidden reserves that you never knew existed and come out stronger from the experience. It is your ability to brave the storm that is more important. ~Latika Teotia
