Constantly Invest In Yourself

There is no more profitable investment than investing in yourself.

anonymous.

Make at least one improvement that makes you better at something every single day. It sounds daunting but improvement don’t have to be huge , they can be really small which incrementally leads to huge change.

Think improving just 1% each day and build upon that every single day. Doing so has a dramatic effect and will make us 37* better , not 365% (3.65*) better at the end of the year.

You need to fight to improve.

Good things came to those who go and get them , nobody achieved greatness waiting for it to find them.

Rule of Five Years

If you use five years wisely , you can come out the other side of them exactly where you want to be. Yes , Five years rule works….

It takes five years to fully re-invent yourself —- said by Entrepreneur James Altucher.

It takes four to six years to build a blog that create wealth —- said by Blogger Jon Morrow.

In between the five years — Use Rule 100 : Write 100 blog , do something 100 times to get good at it. Don’t focus on making each one perfect ; just focus on doing your things , over and over.

But first you have to start and be consistent throughout and Don’t quite.

In the beginning , we might just be trying to survive . Most people quit in this phase.

Learn To Accept And Love Yourself

Love yourself first and everything else falls in line . You have to really love yourself to get anything done in this world.

In other words , show some self compassion.

Scientist say it can make you more successful because you’re learning from your missteps , instead of just berating yourself for them.

One self compassion exercise involves treating yourself as you are best person.

Invent your world ; Surround yourself with people , color , sound and work that nourish you.

Conceal Your Intentions

Keep people off-balance and in dark by never revealing the purpose behind your action.

If they have no clue what you are up to , they cannot prepare a defense. Guide them enough far down wrong path , envelop them in a enough smoke, and by the time they realize your intention , it will be too late.

Do not reveal what you have thought upon doing , but by wise council keep it secret being determined to carry it into execution.

My Reading Bucket List In 2020

“A reader lives a thousand lives before he dies . . . The man who never reads lives only one.”

George R.R. Martin

The books , I want to read which i collect them from last 4 years but because of busy schedule of my Engineering and M.Tech studies I didn’t get time to read the book from by bucket list . The list of book , I collected are follow :

  1. 7 habits of Highly effective people by Stephen R. Covey.
  2. The Magic of Thinking Big by David Schwartz.
  3. Last lecture by Jeffrey Zaslow and Randy Pausch.
  4. The 48 laws of Power by Robert Greene.

But In 2020 , because of Covid-19 lockdown , there are lot of time available to invest in our habits which we didn’t get in day to day life busy schedule. In Maharashtra , India , there are lockdown since from 24 march 2020 .India’s government announced lockdown in India till 31 May 2020. Because of Covid-19 panademic lockdown , Indian Television channel re-telecast their 1988’s show Mahabharat and Ramayan which got record break viewers and huge fan following in the 2020.

The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.

Dr. Seuss

The books are our best friend , they never leave us in any situation . Sometimes , they perform different role in our life . Books are our teacher , our mentor , our friends . Anytime if you want them with you they are available to you. If we develop reading habit in day-to -day life then after 5 years of reading we are different person . Books develop us tremendously .

Traveling is also one of my bucket list but in 2020 its doesn’t seen easy to travel around state and country. Because of Covid-19 pandemic , The 2020 is worst year for traveler. but the best thing about the books are they let you travel without moving your feet. So the more you read , the more information you get and more knowledgeable you became.

Forgive Yourself

We can expect to have some regret and we shouldn’t feel bad about having them.

Journalist Kathryn Schulz.

Forgive yourself. Kicking yourself over past failures won’t change what happened , it will just leave you sore from being kicked so much.

Give up all hope for better past.

Own who you have been so it doesn’t own you.

The point isn’t to live without any regrets , the point is to not hate ourselves for having them.

We need to learn to love the flawed imperfect things that we create and to forgive ourselves for creating them.

Power Of Believe

Believe it can be done. When you believe something can be done your mind will find the ways to do it. Believing a solution paves the way to solution.

Eliminate “impossible” , “won’t work” , “can’t do” , “no use trying” from your thinking and speaking vocabularies.

Don’t let tradition paralyze your mind .

Be receptive to new ideas . Be experimental. Try new approaches. Be progressive in everything you do.
