How To Make Your Weekends Extremely Productive!

Any real content creator on the grind knows that there really is no difference between a weekday and a weekend. It’s a job where you have to work at least 6 days a week, have to update yourself daily, and no excuses from running off from work. Well, that was just my story but trust me, if you’re loving the process, nothing is going to stop you from reaching your set goal.

 

 

Every day matters, and it’s up to you how you choose to make it productive and how seriously you’re actually taking your venture. It’s not easy to say NO to your Saturday festivities and force yourself to keep on making moves.

It’s not like I don’t enjoy or hang out on weekends, but the ones who know me well, do know me as a person who is going to complete his work first, irrespective of the time it is going to take and then move forward for the next activity. You know that’s how things should roll. Agree?

Writing this blog was more about observing my own behaviour towards weekends and other’s as well and trust me, this ended up being funny in most cases. Let me share some of the ways I have learned to make my Saturday grind added with more fun. Here I go!

 

 

  • REWARD YOURSELF – 

I’m a person who believes so much in preparing notes and reminders for almost every activity. I don’t know writing has always helped me in every possible way it can. You and only you know what all activities do you carry in a week so accordingly, prepare your TO-DO LIST! To-do list is actually fun if maintained properly. Make a schedule of how are you going to work this whole week.

 

 

Set a proper goal for a week and divide them into some few subgoals. At the end of the week, review your performance and accordingly, celebrate every new project you fulfil on time or before time. That’s how working should be processed.

 

 

  • TURN ON A SILENT MOVIE –

Turning on a silent movie can be a great kick as it can provide you with an escape for a little bit of time. This is something that made me feel less alone as a teenager – and is a tactic I still use today. If you’re a person who loves listening to music, go for some slow songs at a low voice. It’s important to take some time off from these busy schedules and just relax for a while. Play with your younger siblings or just go out for a walk. All these measures have actually helped me in processing my day to day activities. What really matters is that you actually get work done anyway.

 

 

  • WORK ALONGSIDE A FRIEND –

This can be difficult as it requires the right type of friendship but if you have this sort of a person in your life, do this as often as possible. Find someone you can work alongside effectively and productively. The goal here is to work with someone who shares similar goals as you, or even someone you’re collaborating on a project with so that you can get the work done, together.

 

 

  • MAKE IT A CREATIVE DAY –

Something I have written about a lot and so do tell people is how you should keep moving forward and stretch your muscles a bit to get your work done. If you still want to feel somewhat productive but just can’t get into your flow, make it a creative day. Draw, play the guitar, watch a movie with your family. Do something which can spark your creativity back again and get you thinking in a right direction.

 

 

  • DO ALL OF THE ABOVE –

I’ll be honest here – I have a habit of rewarding myself every week, whether it be clothes (most of the times since I so love fashion), eat my favourite food, watch my all time favourite movies and de-stress myself from all the tough days I had been through previously.

 

 

Just because everybody is going out on a Saturday night, doesn’t mean even you have to. If you would rather work on something that means a lot to you, then I’ll suggest trying all of the above measures and add some fun to your grind.

 

 

How To Nail Office Wear/Business Casual Look For Men

As we enter the golden era of initiating our step towards earning for ourselves and our family, it is very important to make sure that you are carrying your look effectively and with ease. Call it office wear or just business casual, we often tend to make mistakes on very basic things while dressing and to make an image in front of your colleagues and your boss, it is essential to dress up in the right way with following some very standard parameters.

 

 

So, welcome to the today’s blog in which I’ll be discussing some quick essentials and facts you need to know about office wear and business casuals and how to style yourself in a very meaningful manner.

Essentials are the key to build your wardrobe and trust me, one mistake and all your look can happen to be highly unsuccessful. Watch out for these 5 essentials you need to have for improving your style game.

 

  • SHIRTS –

If you’re into going to an old-school type of office where employees around are you are much elder and the surrounding influences a strict traditional attire, this simply means that you can’t play much with colours. Go for shirts such as Blue, Pink or White – the most standardized, the most basic and the most elegant colours to wear.

 

 

 

 

LIGHT BLUE – PINK – WHITE = Traditional Colors

Prefer wearing lighter coloured shirts in the daytime and dark coloured shirts in the night time. Old school office dressing just ends up being up being very subtle and very sober where you can’t wear half sleeve shirts, no loud patterns and no saturated colours (Intensity of the colour is very high).

Give priority to lighter shades but few darker shades count on the modern business casuals especially when the people around you are very modernized, when it comes to lifestyle and supports, what it means to be a true gentleman in Dapper. (Only if the workplace allows you so).

 

 

 

 

BLACK – NAVY BLUE – GRAY – BROWN = Modernized Business Casual Colors

 

  • PANTS –

Colour selection should be very strict in case of pants. Wearing black, charcoal grey, navy blue and brown are the new age business casual colours which will always be the highlighting ones in your outfit.

There are two kinds of pants –

Traditional (Suit Pants/Trousers) – Make sure to get your pants taper towards the base which means making sure it is more sleek, much sharper from the fashion perspective.

 

 

Chinos – Chinos are basically the midline between jeans and trousers or suit pants. They are generally casually looking, tight around your thighs. Be strict in your colour selection and if worn correctly, no one is going to stop you from ruling the game.

 

 

(Make sure to select your pants colour to be slightly on a darker side than your shirt colour because it actually attracts attention more towards the upper body)

 

  • BELTS –

 One of the most essential accessory when it comes down to men’s wear and styling. Prefer avoiding cotton belts as much as you can. With the addition of a proper belt to your office look or business casual, make sure that your belt colour complements your shoe colour or let it be near to that colour tone. The right choice is wearing leather belts or faux leather belts.

 

 

 

  • SHOES –

Well, my favourite category which I was waiting for, to come as soon as possible. There are some common mistakes which we tend to do at the time of dressing –

1) Forget to match the colour of our socks to our shoes.

2) Doesn’t wear shoes complementing the pants ( can be of the same colour tone or slightly darker ).

3) Doesn’t bother about the polish.

 

 

 

 

The most common modern formal shoes are the brogues, monk straps and loafers.

( According to me, when it comes to formal footwear, they are found slightly on the expensive side but invest once and they’ll serve you longer than any normal footwear. )

 

  • WATCHES –

Along with belts, watches are again the most important essential in formal dressing. If you’re into traditional formal attires, prefer wearing metallic watches and on the other hand, if you’re a modern business casual person, go for leather or faux leather watches. Avoid wearing big dial or eye catchy dial watches.

 

 

 

 

That’s all for this blog. You can write me a mail in case of any queries or image consultancy.

I hope this blog was productive and valuable to you from every perspective!

Thank you for stopping by until the end!

5 Outfit Ideas With White Sneakers

Yes, you can wear your white sneakers every single day. It doesn’t matter the season, the occasion or your outfit, white sneakers are always a good idea to watch out for. These are simple and basic, all season go wear, and can never fail you in your styling part. Every fashion conscious guy should have at least a couple of pairs of cool white sneakers.

 

 

Well, sneakers are actually ‘talk of the town’. Everybody is rushing onto buying cool and elegant pair of sneakers for everyday usage so thought of creating a content in which you guys can actually know how to team up your outfits with white sneakers.

No matter if you’re a seven day a week kind of sneaker guy or it’s more of once in a while, these outfit ideas will surely inspire you in your everyday routine.

So, let’s get started!

So, you must be wondering what type of outfits I’ll be going to talk about in the next segment. Well, we all have the knowledge but adultered to some extent. The outfits I’m going to talk about are very catchy, very elegant and are necessary for enhancing your style game.

 

  • ALL NEUTRALS – 

 

 

Exactly, what are neutral outfits? Having the same question in your head? So, these are the building blocks of any outfit and the colours included are Cream, Beige, Camel etc.

 

 

It’s all about complementing your colours in a good way. If you are able to understand the colour coordination, you can never go wrong in styling yourself.

With white sneakers in so much of trend lately, you can easily pair them up with these neutral colours to curate an effective pattern of fashion and styling.

 

  • CLASSIC NAVY AND BEIGE – 

 

 

Blue is one such colour which will always complement the neutral colour. Wearing Navy Blue / Light Blue / Dark Blue with any of the neutral colours like beige, camel or cream will always work in your favour. If you’re going around for a casual date or walk, team it up with a pair of white sneakers.

 

  • BOLD COLOURS – 

 

 

Bold colours are bright, eye-catching ones. These are made from primary colours and includes blue, red and yellow. These colours are full of life and personality. I’ll suggest you buy some V-neck or round neck basic t-shirts (whether half or full sleeve, according to your necessity), and well if you’re a college-going person or just simply out for a casual meeting, you can always go for this pair along with white sneakers.

 

  • COOL BLAZER AND TROUSERS MATCH –

 

 

Whether a checkered print blazer and trouser or any other match you may have in your wardrobe, always wearing oxford brogues or tassels or boots get a little boring. Try teaming up your blazer and trouser with a pair of white sneakers. Well, if you’re not a person who experiments too much, I’ll recommend you to try this once and of course, you can thank me later.

 

  • WHITE CREW NECK AND BLACK/BLUE DENIM – 

 

 

One of the most basic and the most elegant outfit one can ever create. I personally have a love for pieces of denim and pairing a white t-shirt is actually a bliss. Pairing your white sneakers with this will surely make it out to be a good idea and that’s how you can roll in these hot summers with ease.

 

  • DENIM ON DENIM – 

 

 

Did I just say, denim? First of all, buy denim clothes of fine quality so that it lasts longer than the usual clothes. Denim on Denim has to be the favourite and the most loved clothing apparel in both men’s and women’s wear.

Denim on Denim works on a very simple principle –  If your upperwear is dark, prefer wearing a light coloured jeans, chinos or whatever you feel like and vice versa. This is the most common mistake we usually make so try avoiding such mistakes. It’s all about styling yourself in an effective way and trust me, your fashion sense can actually influence many lives. So why not take the lead?

10 Clothing Summer Staples For Women

Okay, so this is the 2nd edition to my summer essentials and this blog post will be totally focusing on the women’s wear and apparels and perhaps, what to have in your wardrobe for this summer.

So, let’s get started, yeah?

 

 

While we all love trends, no wardrobe is complete without essentials and exactly how can you define what is essential to you? Every person has a different definition of it but if you ask me, these are the items that you turn to it in order to create almost every outfit.

From a plain white t-shirt to a denim jacket, I have made a list of some few essentials, every woman needs to have in their closet so as to enhance their summer game to a whole new level.

 

  • White T-shirt – Though, it’s the most standard and basic piece in clothing but when used correctly can actually enhance your overall look and trust me, it is one of the most versatile pieces of cloth. Team it up with a maxi dress, a patterned skirt or whatever you might think of but you can never go wrong with this staple piece.

 

 

  • Denim Jacket – Who said layering can just be done in winters? Team up your denim jackets as these are just perfect for mornings and evenings, the classic design will keep you warm even if the temperature drops. Denim over denim is one such look I personally like in both men’s wear as well as women’s wear.

 

 

  • Two Strap Sandals – Nobody likes sweaty feet in summers. This is the best time to ditch your classic shoes and rather go for these two strap sandals, instead. Not only will the open style keep your feet from overheating but it will elongate the appearance of your legs.

 

 

  • White Shirt – A white buttoned-up shirt is another versatile summer essential. Rather than just wearing shirts in the formal events, girls should focus on wearing them in the normal routine as well. It can be worn with jeans, shorts, skirts, and under the dress.

 

 

 

  • Shirt Dress – Whether you’re heading into the office, out for evening drinks a shirt dress makes an excellent outfit choice. The chic and simple style is perfect for keeping you feeling cool and effortlessly elegant.

 

 

  • Midi Skirt – Forget the mini, summer’s new staple is the midi. A midi skirt is typically supposed to be worn at mid-calf length. This skirt is totally style chic and flattering, cool and comfy to wear in summers especially.

 

 

  • White Sneakers – Shop for plain white sneakers and vibe in them. These are trendy, minimalistic and is a must-have footwear style and is perfect for both busy as well as lazy weekends.

 

 

  • Denim Shorts – Want to show off your legs in summers? Go for denim shorts. Try teaming it up with a casual tee and sneakers to end up being on a cute casual look or even luxe, according to the need.

 

 

  • Ballet Flats – Ballet flats are a great footwear style for summers. This comfy shoes can be worn easily with jeans or pants or it can with a shirt or a dress.

 

 

  • Maxi Dress – It’s already so hot outside and it’s just may right now so what to wear to beat this heat? It’s no wonder that maxi dress is the favourite summer style. Long, Billowy, breezy – maxi is everything you need to beat this summer heat. 

 

 

  • The Perfect Sunglasses – There’s no better way to finish off a stylish summer outfit than with some sleek shades. So, whether you rock a classic pair of aviators or look chic in a cat eye design, embrace your personal version of the perfect sunglasses with pride.

 

 


 

10 Clothing Summer Staples For Men

So, now that we are in the summer months, you must be wondering what to wear in this hot season which is exactly comfortable to wear and fits a bit proper – not so tight and not so loose as well. I wanted to cover a few must-haves for summer wardrobe that will have you looking awesomely stylish without breaking the blank.

In a country like India, we need to break this stereotype that if you totally wear branded clothes, only and only then you’ll be considered a fashionable person which I think is not. Being a fashion advisor, I’ll suggest you to have different pieces of cloth so that it gets easier for you to ‘mix and match’ your clothes and curate a different and presentable look and trust me, it’s okay to wear clothes which are not that expensive. You should have your main focus on styling yourself well and only that matters.

So, I have prepared a list of top favourite picks which I’ll suggest you guys shop for so as to expand your summer wardrobe.

 

  • Sunglasses – Sunglasses are a must-have in these summers so as it not only protects your eyes but when coordinated well with the outfit, adds elegance to the overall look. Shop for a pair of sunglasses which suits your face and budget.

 

 

  • T-shirts –

Not having proper and desired knowledge about the cloth type and measurements can actually downgrade your wardrobe. First of all, know your measurements well like I wear a size ‘M’. Some other person may be wearing a size ‘L’. When picking up any tee, don’t forget to check out for the washing tips as different clothes have different washing procedures.

 

 

If you ask me what to wear in summers, I’ll recommend you to go for Basic Tees, Abstract Prints, Horizontal or Vertical lines T-shirts, Patches tees, Polo T-shirts and OCBD (Oxford Cloth Button Down). Polo T-shirts and OCBD are almost similar and the only difference lies is in the buttoned segment present at the neck in OCBT whereas polo tees just have a winged collar.

 

 

The most important tip I would like to give you all is that, next time you shop for t-shirts, make sure that if you’re wearing a round neck tee, the segment of cloth should be close to the neck. Closer it is to your neck, the better the fit is.

 

 

The men’s with shorter height should generally go with vertical line tees as they look taller and the ones with less weight should wear horizontal lines as it makes them look broader.

 

  • Khakhi Shorts – Wearing jeans, trousers, chinos in summers can be very uncomfortable so, go for some khaki shorts. They end above or on your knees and are the workhorse of the summer. A lot of shopping websites have quirky and amazing designs in printed, florals and basic designs so, shop your preferred ones for your wardrobe.

 

 

  • Coloured Chinos – When it comes to men’s pants, chinos are undoubtedly an essential style. As versatile as they are fashionable, these trousers are a must-have for every man. Not just for the casual looks, but they can be worn with formal shirts making them a fantastic item to own.Colour is important but the key is to pull off the chinos. Do you need a tip? Try chinos on and see how they complement your build and height. Chinos should never be too long.

 

 

  • Lightweight belt – With shorts and summer chinos, you don’t want a heavy leather belt because they are probably designed for jeans. Try going for a lightweight belt so that you don’t feel stuck up in your stomach region. Go for a black and brown/Tan belt as they coordinate with any outfit and usually blend in with any type of colour.Purchase a heavyweight belt for a formal attire and a lightweight one for a semi-formal or casual attire.

 

  • Boat Shoes – They are cosy and comfortable to wear in summers. Pair them with a polo t-shirt and khaki pants and walk the carpet in style. Don’t be one of those guys that wears them with visible socks though. Either go barefoot or if you have sweaty feet, get some no-show socks.

 

 

  • Sneakers – Sneakers are just called as the New Sandals. These are the shoes primarily designed for sports or other forms of physical exercise but are often worn in everyday use. Try having different colours – white being the most trendy and most stylish. The best shopping websites to buy sneakers according to me, are Ajio, Koovs, Myntra.

 

 

  • The Fitted Short Sleeve Shirt – There’s an absurdly false rule that you should never a short sleeve buttoned shirt. As with everything goes, all that matters is your honing on in the fit. If you’re a loose skinny guy, go for a full sleeve shirt as it curtains up your skinny body and if you’re a man with a build, go for these half sleeves buttoned shirt. Pair them with your khaki shorts and tassel loafers and let the eyes roll.

 

 

 

  • Colognes – Smelling good in summers take a little extra effort, I mean it’s hot out there and you’re sweaty, but a solid fragrance is a great way to overcome the odds in your favour. Lighten up your fragrance arsenal with light, fresh scents that’ll last all summer long.

 


 

And, that’s all for today. Thank you for stopping by until the end. Will be writing on ‘ 10 Summer Clothing Staples For Women’ in the next blog post.

If you like the post, do share it with your friends because it’s all about adding value to someone’s life.

How To Become The Best Version Of Yourself?

You are here in this world for three main reasons. The first one is to experience as many different things as possible and enjoy life to the full. The second one is to create, contribute, share, and leave a positive legacy behind.

And the third reason why you’re here on this planet is to improve, evolve, grow and become the best version of yourself.

 

 

Another day, another blog post and another story which might trail down to motivate you in some way or the other.

Before sleeping and after waking up, do ask this question to yourself that ‘what kind of person do you want to be?’

I mean everybody wants to be rich, wants to have a good lifestyle and most importantly ‘have it all’.

With time, I have noticed three ugly qualities that resist a human to become his/her best version and that is –

  • Greed
  • Vanity
  • Addiction

 

  • Having It All –

I have actually come across people who have a tendency of equating their success with ‘having it all’, but this can end up a slippery slope. The appetite for success develops into greed.

 

 

I have met many bloggers and influencers who were unhappy, negative people. It surprised me because It looked like they had it all. But deep down they hadn’t done the work of figuring out what kind of person they wanted to be.

Let me ask you the same question again, What kind of person do you want to be? 

  • Vanity –

Living in a culture of entertainment and celebrities, a lot of people succumb to vanity. I mean we all want to look good, isn’t it?

 

 

Recently, I was just passing from a gym and saw a man with a good built, shaved legs and ripped. I don’t know but after having all that which we humans consider as ‘perfect’, I found that man to be very unhappy. You know what the problem is? We spend an enormous amount of time, energy and money in improving our looks and developing our character.

Becoming the best version of yourself is far away from just sculpted muscles, waxed chests and whitened teeth. It requires intellectual enrichment, empathy, sacrifice for others and the most important quality – Kindness!

 

  • All things in Moderation –

 

 

Perhaps, more than vanity and greed, addiction account for the grief in most people lives. The problem is that we like some things way too much. We pursue them at all costs and become addicted.

Living in a country like India where addictions are just accounted for drinking alcohol and sexual misbehaviour, there are so many other addictions out there which are neglected –  Social media addiction, food addiction, addiction to drama, even healthy pursuits like fitness can become a destructive addiction.

 

 

Addictions can be treated. Simply ask yourself what kind of person you want to be? The answer will come to you and then what? Begin the process right away. You can always make changes and become the best version.

No matter who you’re, no matter what you did, no matter where you’ve come from, you can always change and become a better version of yourself!


That’s all for today. You can write me down on arpitpahwa4@gmail.com or can easily connect with me on any of my social handles given in the right-hand sidebar.

Thank you for stopping by until the end.

Don’t forget to add value to others as they’ll come back when the time comes.

Have a great week, ahead!

See you in the next one!

What I Do When I Can’t Focus

Are you struggling to finish your tasks? Are you always distracted by notifications, gossiping, or anything that’s random?

 

 

In that case, you and I are alike. And you know what? Focusing on a single thing is probably one of the hardest things at work.

There’s always something that interrupts you, right?

  • Another person
  • A phone call
  • A meeting
  • A false emergency

Sure, you can blame on these things but that’s weak. You and I, we both know that things can’t interrupt you without your permission. And that simply means that every time you’re not focused, you’re simply giving someone or something the permission to invade your mind.

Scary, isn’t it?

Your life will never benefit just by looking at Instagram or Facebook, watching useless Youtube videos and reading negative articles.

 

 

So, what can you do to improve your focus? Here, are 2 things that I always do when I find myself not being able to focus on what really matters to me.

  • ELIMINATE – 

Every day, we accumulate stuff. We accumulate ideas. It’s the human tendency to make the ideas which are exposed openly as their own. Funny, isn’t it? Have you ever thought about that?

 

 

Okay, so let me take up my own example here. Being a writer, I constantly observe so many things around me on a regular basis. People actually come up and give me n number of ideas which I actually appreciate and one such idea was of starting a YouTube Channel. I built the strategy, I worked on creating a model for it. But there was just problem –  It consumes too much of my time and attention and as a consequence of it, I have to spend less time on writing and creating new articles. I thought of doing only that thing in which my time was fruitfully strategized and organized and that’s how eliminating comes into place. Eliminating is a key strategy that I use in many aspects of my life and so want you to focus on.

It’s important to figure out what you need to eliminate from your lives to make it completely organized, simple and that it’s easy to focus on?

If you’re struggling with focusing your mind on a single thing, try this strategy. Make your life simple and that’s a breeze to live.

  •  THINK ABOUT YOUR PAST SUCCESS- 

 

 

So, 2017 was actually the best year of my life as my passion for working as a writer came into existence and that’s how I started with my own blogging website. It’s never easy to step forward and take critics and that’s what helped me to grow – as a person and as a writer. The life of a blogger starts with the booming stats in the first six months but what after a year or so when the audience gets bored with your creative content? That’s where you have to start with your next strategy!

All you need to do is remember all those positive events that happened in the past. That’s a strategy to overcome your cold phases and runs a stream of positive energy levels in your blood.

Have you ever heard of the neurotransmitter, Serotonin? Serotonin is present on the right side of the brain and is responsible for all your emotional and creative nature. To improve your focus, boost your serotonin activity. When serotonin goes up, your focus goes up. Ultimately, that’s what you should do.

When I can’t focus, the first thing I do is acknowledge the problem and the solution required to correct that problem. Some people go through life without even acknowledging they have problems.

Focus on your life. Think about what matters to you. Do those things and don’t get distracted. Learn to stay on the path!

Inner Peace Is The New Success!

 Happiness is the new rich. Inner peace is a new success. Health is a new wealth. Kindness is the new cool!

 

Unflappable? That is such a wonderfully descriptive word. A person is said to be unflappable if he/she potentially has or shows calmness in a situation of crisis. I have known some truly unflappable people. They discharge an inner calmness even in the hardest circumstances. They are the ones who are fully present with everyone, gentle and possess a positive attitude towards life.

 

 

So many of us exist in a cloud of internal and external chaos.

With such an over-scheduled and preoccupied lifestyle, it is difficult to relax and enjoy life with all of the distractions and cold phases.

 

What is meant by Inner Peace?

 

 

Inner peace is more about being than doing. It’s all about learning to correct and not struggling against. It’s about being focused in the present and not dwelling in the chapters of the past or the dreams of the future. The rewards of inner peace are numerous. It all includes mental and physical well being of an individual, self-confidence and more intense and more joyful experience.

 

How to attain Inner Peace?

 

 

  • Have nothing unresolved –

Resolving your professional and personal matters are necessary as it withdraws energy gets you numb and broken. It’s better to make short-term schedules and keep the things sorted.

 

  • Surrender and accept what it is –

Accepting your failures are much more important than enjoying your success. The one who surrenders and accepts will never make the same mistake again. Rather than resisting and fighting, stop struggling. Resisting blocks energy and creativity.

 

  • Take full responsibility for how you react to others –

You choose your behaviour and you decide what you want to be in all circumstances. Plan for being a calm and unflappable person.

 

  • Become aware of and sensitive to feelings rather than ignoring them –

These feelings can turn out to be a big gut vibes in your day to day and even in your business. Never ignore these feelings as it might turn your struggle into the fortune. Be aware of what’s running inside your head. Become aware of your internal environment.

 

  • Know your higher self –

The only person who knows what you’re capable of doing, capable of producing is just you. Know your goals, understand them, implement what’s necessary at the right time and at the right moment.

 

  • Prioritize peace ahead of performance –

Setting up our priority list is what we all have been doing after puberty but how about keeping ‘peace’ in the first place? Try and find out yourself!

 

How can Inner Peace lead us to a successful life?

 

 

We all are running in the quest for a happy life which is full of freedom and security. The search for happiness and a successful life is one of the most common goals to everyone. Life is full of challenges. For an instance, rather than thinking of them as a reason to give up just think of them as a source of knowledge and experience. Failures teach us more than what success could. With experience comes wisdom, more positivity towards achieving something, stability and productivity automatically enhances.

With inner peace comes Introspection, self-control and self-improvement. Introspection is having a knowledge of your own thoughts and emotions. Introspection is like a lantern, it might provide light, but it doesn’t guarantee to make you see the things.

There are no limits. All you have to keep in mind is to control your mind from all the negativity trying to attack you.

Self-Improvement is what means to build yourself, to train your mind and improve and nourish your character and attitude towards living.

With a peaceful mind, the success rate automatically doubles.
