Motivation by and through others alone isn’t sufficient to keep you going because it vanishes when confronted with big unexpected challenges. It may keep you going initially for a few months but doesn’t last very long. So what should you do???
Self motivation and belief in your own self will see you through. The belief in your own self earned over the years facing challenges big and small makes you confident of taking on all kinds of challenges as well as tackling every situation. ~Latika Teotia
Our inner strength and self belief comes into play when we face rough weather. By nature we are reluctant to move out of our comfort zones but when pushed into a corner we jump up to face what life throws at us.
We realise subsequently in hindsight that whatever happened was good and we feel glad that it happened the way it did as well as at the time it did. It could be the breakup of a rotten and difficult relationship which we had been unsuccessfully trying to maintain or it could be a job that was giving us endless nightmares and such like situations or circumstances.
When we pass through such transitional period it is HOPE that keeps us going. Hope, that things can’t remain as bad forever. Hope, that we’ll see light at the end of the long tunnel of dark despair. Hope, that a bright sunshine awaits us the end of the seemingly endless gloomy night. Nurture that hope, never let it die. Keep a positive attitude. ~Latika Teotia
There are days in our lives when nothing seems to be going right and we get so dejected that we just want to give up. No amount of coaxing, cajoling or self motivation seems to work. Nothing seems to inspire us. It seems that the very air has gone out of our balloon and we sit there deflated, depressed and crestfallen. Don’t fret; such things do happen.
Such moments should be taken in our stride; utilize this time to recount your achievements and also to plan ahead. Before you know, such moments or days will pass and the sun will shine brightly once again. ~Latika Teotia
If you haven’t been able to figure out the purpose of your life, it’s perfectly alright. Your aim should be to live a life that energizes you to be happy – everything else will follow and you’ll discover the purpose of your life by and by. ~Latika Teotia
If you take time off to listen to the wisdom of your heart it will help you heal as well as sort out many issues. It will inspire you and for sure make you believe in yourself. It will tell you that there’s so much to celebrate, so much to enjoy and embrace. This life itself is a beautiful gift, appreciate what you have. Believe in yourself as well as your dreams and give them wings to fly. ~Latika Teotia
People who fill you with positivity, who make us see the brighter side of life are our best friends. Cultivate them, hang on to them and never let them go. ~Latika Teotia
Celebrate your achievements and victories without waiting for recognition from others; after all it’s your efforts which brought that accomplishment. A flower blooms in the desert with nary a person to its beauty, yet it blossoms, spreads its fragrance and enjoys its existence. A dew drop caught on the leaf in an unexplored forest sparkles like a diamond; it doesn’t need spectators to appreciate its beauty. You shouldn’t be dependent on others to encourage you instead be your own cheer leader. Love yourself to bits.
While there’s life, there’s hope and where there’s hope the Sun will always shine. Who said that life is fair? We all have our share of happiness and sorrow, hope and disappointments. At times your life appears to be spiraling out of control; that’s the time you should remain calm. Draw upon your hidden strength and very soon you will be on top of things. Remember order comes out of chaos. Be positive, be hopeful and very soon life will be a song.
It took me ages to find my voice; now I intend using it in the best possible way to reach out to as many as I can and inspire them to find theirs. ~Latika Teotia
