Looking For Daily Inspiration and Motivation? Try These 4 Tips..

Well, Travelling 4 to 5 hours everyday to go to work and then work diligently for 8.5 hours is manageable. But what if you have a horribly mean boss and superficial and super cunning colleagues who act so nice on the outside but wield their swords and sharpen them behind your back waiting for an opportunity to slowly and nonchalantly stab you, walk over your hard work and cease all your success and act as if nothing ever happened? Well…Well..Welcome to the corporate world. 😀

In this ugly cruel world, it is difficult to find motivation and inspiration on a daily basis. So what do I do to keep myself optimistic and pull myself up for a healthy day amidst all the evil and darkness every day?

Here are 4 of my habits, that I follow whenever I feel low, whenever I’m in need of some positive energy, to be inspired and motivated. If you like them, try them out. Who knows, it could not only cancel all the negativity but also bring more positivity in your life and inspire to aspire for more 🙂

1. TED Talks

1. TED Talks

Is there anything better than a TED Talk? It has huge collection of speeches from people from all around the globe from a variety of fields. These people who grew from the scratch, breaking beyond all impossibilities and hardships and built a castle for themselves with all the stones thrown at them..talk to you from their heart. Men, Women, Children, The abled, Differently-abled, Scientists, Scholars, Dumb-heads like you and me who turned trash into invaluable precious things…yes, you can listen to their stories, their adventures and get all psyched. Their speeches will make you feel special. They will make you feel like you can do “anything” in this world. They are available on YouTube and even they have their own Android App with a great collection of Ted Talks. Give it a try if you are into “Talks”. These are really good 🙂

2. Pinterest

2. Pinterest

If you are someone who is into picture-inspiration, you’d love this. Search for your favorite category.. and scroll through. You will find not only inspiring images, but also some really cool websites linked to those images. I found a large world of infinite knowledge and fun through Pinterest. There are many other sites like this such as Tumblr, Instagram, etc., but my personal favorite is Pinterest. Pin them, Save them, Read them or simply scroll over and Create your Own Inspiration Boards with a collection of all your favorite posts and pictures! If you like looking through images without actually reading a large content and get creatively psyched – give this a try!

3. The Greatness Guide By Robin Sharma

3. The Greatness Guide By Robin Sharma

This is my all time favorite book! I think I have mentioned this book on some other post.. Every chapter is just one page long or even less. It doesn’t take more than 10 mins to read a chapter and assimilate it. It is the Maggie-Noodles for Instant Motivation. Simply Superb and Worth spending 10 minutes of your day. I still flip through the pages and re-read some chapters every now and then to get my inspiration-fluids flowing! If you love reading but do not have enough time to read an entire book, check this out. You will love it too! 😉

4. Take A Solitary Walk

4. Take A Solitary Walk

If you don’t want to do anything and yet get inspired. Just take a walk. Don’t look into your phone, you don’t even need a companion. All you need is yourself. Yes, the world is full of motivation. Every living being on this earth is trying so hard to survive. The little bug is trying to save food for it’s young ones even though it wouldn’t live for another day, every homeless man is striving hard to survive against all odds, every bird, fish, the man living at the end of the street, the woman selling veggies along the pavement, the little boy delivering newspaper to pay for his tuition.. every one of them is striving hard. What other motivation do you need? Look around, go for a small walk and think, do you need anything more to motivate you??

Announcement! 2 Year Anniversary and New Series!!

Hello there!

Can you believe it has been two years since the birth of this blog?!

Announcement! 2 Year Anniversary and New Series!!.jpg

Yes, Two Years ago, I had no idea where I was standing in my life. I was so lost. I must admit, I still am. So lost and confused, but I’m now wiser than I was, I believe. 😉

I would like to thank every one of you who motivated me in this journey. You, my readers and my fellow bloggers, your words encouraged me to see life in bright light. Gave me the strength to move on.

As a thank you gift, I’m now starting a series called “The 4-Line Motivation Series”

I hope to post a personal motivation quote every day or at least once a week, as often as I can. The daily dose of motivation for all of us move on, fight back, love ourselves and live our life 🙂

Thank you once again 🙂

Love,

~Yuvathi ❤ 🙂

Is It Okay To Be Unhappy?

You can’t smile all the time. Life is not always a bed of roses. Sometimes the thorn peeps out, more so often many thorns peep out and hurt you until you bleed. It is okay, it happens. It is okay to be unhappy.

Yes, it is 100% okay not to be okay!

Is It Okay To Be Unhappy.jpg

Do you know what is not okay?

Not admitting the fact that you are unhappy! Hiding your sadness and trying to fool yourself and the people around you.. Well, that is cruelty that you impose on yourself. If you are sad, let it out. Talk to your friend or family about it. If you don’t want people to hear it, then write it down in your diary, tear it, burn it, or blog about it, publish it, trash it. It’s all your choice. You have many options! If nothing works, cry out loud. Sometimes all you need is to melt your heart’s heaviness with some tears. It is okay to cry too!

But make sure, you let it ALL out. Don’t let failure and sadness rule you. You are the Queen/King of your life. It has to move the way you want it.

Sometimes your life becomes rebellious. It doesn’t let you take the lead. Well, why should you let your guard down?

Stay strong. Be as rebellious as you can.

Fight back. Fall down. But don’t forget to get up. Dust your shoulders.

With your head held high, Fight again.

Do you know why I’m writing about this now?

I have been going through a really rough time at home and at work. Really rough. But I didn’t hide it, I let it out. There’s no point in hiding it all and carrying it in your heart. Thanks to my friends, family, my blog and diary. I have been holding up and fighting back. Although it takes more of one’s own effort, it is always lovely to have people around you, who support and cheer you through everything.

I must tell you, it is so relieving once you admit the fact that you are having a tough time and that you are hurt and feeling low.

Sometimes I would lose all hope and go to bed with a heavy heart. Few times I wept to my heart’s relief. But the next morning I would wake up, dress up well, look in the mirror and tell myself, “I can do it”, “I will fight back”.

It is okay to be unhappy. Just don’t let it hold you back from doing what you want to do and being who you really want to be. Live your life. Don’t waste it.
