Gratitude is just a matter of comparison !!!

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.

Stay inspired !!!

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

 

Being grateful is a key to staying happy !!!

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

Be judicious in what you choose !!!

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

Bitter or Better ???

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

Keep confronting your issues head on !!!

inspirational quotes,inspirational stories,inspirational videos,

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

A better way to live peacefully is to constantly forgive !!!

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

Keep on keeping on !!!

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

Refuse to give up or give in !!!

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
