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
Most of us long for one soulful relationship which can help us to carry on with life and are disappointed when we fall short of such expectations. We get hurt when we face rejections or betrayal. On this Valentine’s Day, stop the hunt for that perfect connection with someone else and build a relationship with your own self. Make it complete and fill it with love by ignoring your short comings and your imperfections. Forgive your wrongs and give yourself all the love you expected from others. Make a promise that henceforth you won’t be hard on yourself. Never be self critical and never ever have poor self esteem about your own self. ~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
Problems are temporary; they don’t last forever. Sooner or later they get solved and things fall into place. Have patience, have faith. Remember you are bigger than any and every problem or challenge that life throws at you. ~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
While loving and caring for someone, don’t lose your own identity. The strongest relationship should be with your own self. Losing your precious relationship does hurt a lot, but that should not make you lose yourself. Self love and self esteem should not be lost at the altar of loving others. If you feel that while making a relationship work, you are losing yourself and hurting your soul then a good decision would be to walk out. That doesn’t make you an escapist but defines you as a wise, self loving and self respecting person. ~Latika Teotia
Most of the advertisements for women talk of only two things; one fair complexion and the other anti aging. This results in creating unnecessary complexes, especially for those with dark complexions or those who are on the other side of young age. Is that the only way to measure women? A dark complexioned lady too is just as beautiful as those with other complexions. Women becomes more mature, much more graceful, tactful, loving, caring, kind and all encompassing with the passage of time. They has been through life’s journey and picked up precious nuggets of wisdom along the way. Advertisements should, instead, focus on health, happiness, poise, self confidence, self belief and self esteem. By staying fit and in good health, women are indirectly contributing to society. Healthy, cheerful persons full of confidence will spread the message of good will and make this world a better place to live in.
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
If you fall down, don’t just stay there. Get up and get going. Life is much more than the heart break, the heart ache, the pain, the sorrow, the misery and the loneliness. It’s about picking yourself up. Never give up and say it’s “The End”. It’s okay to have a heart break, feel left out, feel depressed, feel sad and feel miserable. That’s the time to remind yourself that you are after all human and that you are not the only one who feels that way. Take a break, catch your breath and move on. Surprise yourself by discovering your inner strength to get up, get going and come out smiling in the end . ~Latika Teotia
