With a smile on your face and hope in your heart enter 2020 with confidence. Don’t look back upon the year gone by with regret. Keep the good memories; discard the bad ones- you don’t have to carry that unnecessary and useless baggage around.~Latika Teotia
Unless you risk and break free of the bars that hold you caged you won’t gain something which can take you to even greater heights. Gather all the courage; dare yourself to challenge the limits and cross the threshold of fear as well as anxiety- something better awaits you at the other end. Those who wait for fruits to fall wait longer than those who pluck it off the tree. ~Latika Teotia
If you are feeling demotivated ,down and depressed about all the things you want but haven’t got, start thinking about all the things you don’t want and haven’t got. You see there is a positive sight to everything in life.
Just compare your circumstances against what they might have been and you will become aware that no matter how bad things are they could have been worse,and then you will be grateful they aren’t.
Life doesn’t come to a standstill just because YOU have failed. Success and failure are an integral part of life, so, if confronted with failure don’t freeze and go into mental paralysis. Get up and get going- that’s the right way, the way forward.~Latika Teotia
Be thankful for what you have; don’t brood over your misfortunes. Perhaps some calamity has befallen you or perhaps you have lost a near and dear one. Maybe you have recently had some serious health issues or perhaps you are having financial problems. Yes, such circumstances are very difficult to bear and you feel that your world has crashed. But even then there is so much to be thankful for.
A man lost his shop and his entire life’s savings in a fire. When someone asked him what he had lost, he replied, “The fire burnt my shop and life’s savings but my confidence is intact.”
Rise from your gloom, shed the negativity that invariably accompanies a tragedy and count your blessings; you’ll realize that you have much to be grateful for. Thank the Lord for what you have. ~Latika Teotia
Whenever 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
You must know that you cannot control your fate and your destiny completely. But there are a lot of things that you can. You can choose your friends and the persons you interact with. You can decide what you want to do with your life, time and money. You can choose to see the glass half empty or half full; see threat in every opportunity or an opportunity in every threat. Remain in a state of self denial or remain composed in the face of adversity. You can select negativity or embrace positivity. And above all you can select your own beliefs, convictions, thoughts and opinions. Therefore, be judicious in what you choose.~Latika Teotia
Selective amnesia or forgetfulness is good for leading a happy life. Forget the uncomfortable incidents and be grateful for the good ones. Write your bitter memories on sand and the good ones on stone so that winds of time can quickly sweep away the bad memories and the memorable ones remain permanently etched.~Latika Teotia
Don’t mistake indifference for peace of mind. At best it is resigning to fate or giving up and at worst escapism. When we find that we are not able to succeed we tend to let go or withdraw, hoping that the problem will go away. It doesn’t work that way; this is an escapist’s attitude or a weak person’s response. Be strong; take problems head on; be open to suggestions, mid course corrections and changes. That is the best way to gain inner peace. ~Latika Teotia
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
