As long as there are people in our lives of our past whom we have not forgiven, we are not free of them. We are carrying them on our back. They are with us all the time forever close, breathing down our necks, whispering into our ears, threatening our piece of our mind, a constant conscious or unconscious reminder of our pain or injustice. Only forgiveness has the power to break this chain of pain. Forgiveness cleanses the soul. For your own good, try to forgive some today , I know it is easier said than done but you can consciously try to practice forgiveness. A better way to live peacefully is to constantly forgive. ~Latika Teotia
Failures are stepping stones to success. Rejections, negative responses, disappointments, rebuffs and so on should NOT shake your confidence. As we all know you are not down unless you decide not to get up. So keep on keeping on and shine. ~Latika Teotia
Never treat failure as final and don’t think that it’s the end of the road. Take lessons from it and learn. Failure is also a step towards success- provided you take it in the right spirit. Instead of brooding over what’s happened and losing sleep as well as peace of mind, learn to rise and come out even better.
You will have setbacks; that’s a part of life. It could be death of a close one, a mishap, a rejection, a breakup and so on; these are mere distraction or interruptions nothing more. Take them as just a small deviation from your chosen path; and don’t give up or give in.
This world is replete with examples of people who have risen from repeated failures or started very late in life. The one thing that is common in all such cases is, they had the desire to succeed and just refused to give up or give in. So have the will to rise and the courage to face all situations. ~Latika Teotia
You can choose to be happy or miserable- that choice depends entirely on your own self. You don’t have to look far to find happiness; the first step is to count your blessings and express gratitude for them. One should never compare oneself with others; and if at all you want to, then do that with those beneath you or those who are less fortunate. If you can see (even though you may have to use glasses) then you are luckier than those who are visually handicapped and who would give their right arm to be able to see even from one eye. If you can hear, talk and walk then you are luckier than those handicapped on account of these. So next time you are feeling sad, down and depressed, just carry out this small exercise- count your blessings. Before long you’ll have enough reasons to feel uplifted and happy. ~Latika Teotia
The dents and scars in your life’s journey are living proofs that you have really travelled bravely and tackled challenges head on. You are strong and have an indomitable spirit. Keep it that way. You are an inspiration for others.
