In Hard Work is Happiness!

Howdy, People!

A Cold Monday evening, dark skies and my notepad – the three deadly combinations, which together can help me out in making up any content. Since everyone is home by now and relaxing in their blankets, I find this a good opportunity to make you learn ‘How one can be happy with his hard work’.

In Hard Work Is Happiness, Is that so? Let’s find out!

The ones who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones that do it.
Next time if someone looks at you like you’re crazy or mad when you’re sharing your ideas, vision, passion and is watching you delusionally, just smile.

You think you can change the world?

There is only one thing and that is you just have to accept that most of the people will think you’re crazy, wasting your time but believe me that’s okay. Not everyone has that vision to look beyond the extremities. It really doesn’t matter who doesn’t believe in you or in your dreams; you just have to be with those few crazy beings that do believe, want to join in with you and are prepared to risk it all and actually are eager to make a change with their hard work, a major difference and be a part of something that changes their game and hence, their mindset for once and for all.

Believe me, there will always be doubters, criticizers, haters but you’ve got to look past all that. Go out, express yourselves, build your dream, create your vision but yeah, make sure you just do not leave any debating left after the impact and the legacy you have created.

It’s okay to be crazy about your work. Trust me, if I’m asked whether I’m mad about my work or not? I can jump a thousand times and say yes because that is the only thing I look forward to when I get back home, that is the only thing which is making me a better human in the society, that is the only thing which is making me learn many a lesson of life.

Cheers, to the crazy ones that are you and me. It’s the time to get crazy for what you love to do the most, have that right focus, work hard and no one, I repeat, no one can drag you down. It’s the right time to work on your strengths and not your weaknesses.

It’s the right time to be somebody, nobody thought you could be. – Anonymous

Have a great week, my lovely people and don’t forget happiness is always nearly a rebound from your hard work. Keep up the good work!

That’s all for your Monday’s dose. I hope you will definitely make this week productive and prosperous.

See you in the next one!

Hate is Heavy!

Howdy, Readers!

So, how did you people spent your new year? I hope everyone had a good start to 2018.

Looking forward to writing more and more for you people and in return, expect the same love and support, you people have been giving me for the past few months. Cheers to this new start!

So, Ruchika Kachroo is the guest blogger for this first post of 2018. An avid reader, an excellent writer and yes, a good friend of mine. I have been reading her work on Quora and believe me, her expression of writing is phenomenal.

Let’s find out what she has to say about this topic. Let’s get started!

Is hate Heavy?

“I have decided to stick with love. Hate is too great a burden to bear.”

~ Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

What exactly is hatred?

Hate is a toxic energy, which can wear many different masks, but behind them, all dwells the same thing — fear. Have you ever carried the burden of hate? I know how hard it is to let it go. Irrespective of how the hate shows up, when our body takes up intense feelings of hate, we are the ones who suffer; we isolate ourselves from life and actually end up holding ourselves a prisoner from happiness.

 

Sadder yet is the burden of hate that many are immersed in because the people around them taught them how to take hate as a way of life, even before they could talk. There is no question that this kind of hate is born in the womb of fear, which often outstands itself as an over-inflated sense of superiority, intolerance and arrogance. This is sad because it really boils down to a lack of understanding of others who may be different than they — fueled by fear.

How to set yourself free from the toxicity of hate?

The good news is, if willing, we can set ourselves free of toxicity of hate today. How? by Sticking to love. If we feel the burden of hate weighing heavy upon our heart, do some self-enquiry today; if you find any sense of hate lingering in the corners of your mind, shed the light of love on it and watch it dissolve. Hate exists in the darkness and in a sense of separation from God (light). Just as darkness cannot exist in the presence of light, fear cannot maintain its existence in the presence of love.

Stick with love; you’ll lighten your burden and the planet will be a better place as well for the next seven generations to come.

Here, are some few points you can consider to set yourself free from the toxicity of hate.

  • Don’t let the power of hatred affect you or change you in any case. Hold on to yourself, If the hatred must change you, let it only make you stronger and kinder.
  • Keep track of the ways in which your hatred, anger, emotions, and judgements affect your behaviour and relationships.
  • Choose three role models whose compassion and kindness inspire you. They can be anyone and you just have to let them inspire you to be a kinder, more compassionate person.
  • Spend time doing things that feel meaningful and fulfilling to you.
  • Let go; Be you!

So, these were the few points you should have in your mind as hatred has never made anyone successful or rich. With the beginning of this new year, It’s important to write each chapter with a good mark and then, all you have to do is maintain yourself as a consistent and persistent character.

That’s all for today. I hope you’ll defintely make a mark and be consistent and persistent in whatever you choose to work on. All the best!

Thanks, Ruchika, for giving your precious time in writing this content with The Parallel Edit.

From Selfishness To Self-Loved!

Howdy, Readers!

First of all, a very happy new year to each one of you. You people are just amazing and I wish this year may actually bring so many happy surprises and moments for you all.

If you’re actually adding value to others, believe me, you’re doing great enough since not many have that ability to do. So, focus on adding value in others.

It’s my last blog post of 2017 and hereby, I just want to say that ‘work with patience throughout the year 2018 and do reward yourself for every milestone you achieve’. Let’s start with the today’s discussion.

From Selfishness to Self-Loved. What does this phrase have to do with our lives?

As kids, we have always been pampered with so many gifts and since it is the human psychology ‘what is mine, is mine’, that selfish attitude starts from a very early age and over time, when one experiences the harsh realities of life, it gets clear that to be successful, to be out of the box, one has to love himself first. You must be wondering why loving yourself is necessary?

There is a very thin line between loving yourself and narcissism or what you call as selfishness. To be on the road to success, one should have these few points in mind.

  • When you love who you are, you accept who you are.
  • Loving yourself will definitely add confidence and approval.
  • To love yourself is to be charismatic.
  • When you start believing in “Give and Take”, the world around you changes.
  • Don’t forget to explore who you are and what are your capabilities.
  • Put yourself at the top of your To-do list every single day and the rest will fall into place!
  • Enjoy your own company.

Make yourself a priority once in a while. It’s not selfish, It’s necessary. 

Self-love actually makes you stronger and nothing in this world can get you down, don’t be scared to love yourself on first priority, but trust me you just have to feel your instincts and the world will actually look beautiful, from outside as well as from inside.

I hope you get the best out of yourself in 2018 and don’t forget to thank 2017 for all the lessons it has taught you. Just believe in yourself and make 2018, a year overflowing with abundance, new blessings, life-changing opportunities and stand with people who can bring out the best in you. Make your intentions very clear and committ yourself and your entire being to the outcome you truly desire.

Nothing really works if you don’t put in the work.

See you in the next blog, my lovely people!

A Happy New Year To Everyone!

Everyone has a story!

Howdy, People!

In the last blog post, I had made a discussion on why being focussed is mandatory when you’re working on a dream. We are in the last days of this year and I really don’t know how many of you actually implemented your plans this year, but tell me, are you ready for 2018? Are you?

Waiting for that perfect time to come –  is actually a phrase I have been listening to from the past few years. ‘I have to wait for the perfect time and then I’ll start executing my plans’. Do you really think the opportunities surpassing will wait for your perfect time? Actually, NO!

Everyone has a story, A story to tell. A story is hidden within the walls of the pumping machine. It might or might not be a love story but can be a story of dreams, hope, failure, survival and what not. I believe everyone has a story to tell, a lesson to teach and a wisdom to share.

I actually feel inspired when it comes down to listening to someone’s experiences. Everyone have different perspectives, different challenges and these stories are what can get you moving on your path. Like I always say, we humans are actually very intricate. We define ourselves with the circumstances or the environment we live in.


What’s my story?

2017 had actually been a year of success for me. And you know why? I had never stopped working. I didn’t care about the time I was working, I just knew I have to move no matter what. I’m just like you people. High in life, Procrastinator to some extent, enjoy my arena, even I have experienced heartbreaks but you know what? Working is Worship!

Worship your dream and things will fall so hard in your place. The one who is working with all of his heart will never ever fail irrespective of how many difficult circumstances he/she may get in. I have always treated my blog like a business and I have always considered it to be a real-world startup. The only difference lies is in the way you work, the way people sees you and your work. Stories without a struggle are meaningless. These struggles do build you!

You just have to plant the seed, nurture and nourish and upon growing, you’ll get what you have always wanted and the same is your dream. Lay the foundation, work and work on it, and when you cross the finish line, believe me, it will change your life forever. Are you ready for it?

Action is the foundational key to success!

You know what is the reason why I love writing so much? Sometimes, it’s not about the money, not the popularity but sometimes all you want to be is the word for the silent ones, a leader for the weak ones and a character for the stronger ones.

Believe me, you all were created with a purpose. Just go out there, express yourselves, enjoy the precious moments and make a difference by being a difference.

Have a great end of this year and don’t forget to plan out for 2018.

Much love!

XOXO

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Oh me? Just working on my dreams!

Howdy, my lovely people!

I know I have not been publishing anything from the past few days and I’m really sorry about it but I just follow one simple rule – whenever inspiration strikes, just write it down and you’ll remember the words without even grasping anything.

Oh me? Just working on my dreams!

Imagine you have been surrounded by so many unknown persons and at the same moment, someone asks you, what are you currently working for? What are you going to answer? Do you think the time you have been wasting planning your holidays and relaxing will get back to you? Will surely not. Are you actually working for yourself and on yourself?

Well, the answer is known but I understand it’s difficult to accept, sometimes, but my friend, this is the right time to start your plan for your evolution in 2018. Start building your 2018 from this time so that you don’t have to wait for ideas to strike your mind. Since everyone is busy on their vacations, prefer spending some quality time alone, thinking of all the things you want from the upcoming year and don’t forget to pen down on a paper.

I have been in touch with so many people lately, on emails, social media and what not but the only thing I found in them was the lack of innovation that is the ability to create ideas into invoices. I’m not saying that they weren’t hard working or something, but they just lacked the smartness it requires to turn a stone into gold.

I want to share a photo with you guys. I hope this picture actually helps you out in working out the things easily.

This picture has actually been a life-changing picture for me. So it’s your call.

Decide and analyse like on which platform today you stand. It will totally be your actions which will play a key role in deciding your current step. Play wisely.

Try out this picture in any situation and imagine yourself on the stair you currently are. Allot a time that you have to complete your project/assignment or whatever by this time. Analyse the number of stairs you’re far from the last stair and accordingly work. You’ll definitely reach and the results will be overwhelming and that’s a promise. Try it out!

Dream it, Believe it, See it, Tell it, Plan it, Work it and most importantly, Enjoy it! 

So, that’s all for today. It’s necessary to enjoy your success and hard work. Reward yourself for everything you achieve and that’s a good habit!

See you in the next one, people!

BE KIND!

Howdy, My Lovelies!

Saturday, Cold outside and as usual in my blanket so thought of writing something valuable and worth reading for you people. You know what’s the best compliment any writer can ever get? When his/her audience starts connecting with his/her words and that is more of like a winning scene. You people have been very supportive on this journey and I have been thanking you in almost every of my blog post since I genuinely feel the need.

Shireen Manocha, who is the guest blogger for this week is actually someone whom I have admired throughout all my school life. The way she writes, the way she presents her work, her attitude towards living a positive life and the leadership qualities she possesses has what made her stronger and better with time.

Let’s get started!

So, what’s all on your To-do list? Dream big? Work hard? Follow your routines? Dieting? Completion of assignments? Have you ever thought of being kind? Ask this from yourself as you and only you have that answer. I read this somewhere that you can be anything in this world so why not be kind? Why not?

I actually come across so many people in my day to day routine and what I have always found lacking is Compassion. So, first of all, what actually is compassion? Compassion literally means “to suffer together.” It is defined as the feeling that arises when you are confronted with another’s suffering and feel motivated to relieve that suffering. Are you doing it enough for yourself or for somebody?

How can you be a compassionate person?

  • Find commonalities with other people
  • Don’t put emphasis on money
  • Be kind to yourself and others
  • Express gratitude
  • Teach others and help the needy
  • High emotional intelligence

Let’s face it, the world isn’t the beautiful place you imagined, with unicorns and rainbows adorning the sky, or as John Green so aptly put it, “The world isn’t a wish-granting factory.” 

People are mean and selfish, and the world at large is conspiring to put you down, and you have to deal with it, alone, for everyone you considered a friend turned their backs when you most needed them.

It’s at times like these, that pin you down by the throat, that you must work on your compassion and visualise a world filled with more love and less chaos – for you can bring this change. Your world has to be you, and this large existence in its entirety, you are your world, and create your own sphere of kindness and happiness for that is what will lead you to success.

A little inner peace, the happiness of doing something nice but also being a little less selfish and realising how the same world put someone else down too – Be their saviour. Be their saviour and they would remember you, and one day, I assure you, you would taste success, for success is fame and dynamics but it’s also passion and stability.

Compassion is another key to be successful in your path irrespective of which road you have chosen. Follow the patronus and you’ll be delighted with the upcoming.

BE SILLY. BE HONEST. BE KIND ALWAYS!

TO THE LAST MONTH!

Howdy, People!

So, this is the last month of this year. Before starting up anything, I would like to thank you, people, for constantly supporting me in this journey, to make me realise writing is what I’m best at and should continue with my work. Everyone reading this blog, just make sure to thank your loved ones for all the good times they had given you in this year. Cheers!

The blog titled ” TO THE LAST MONTH” is just a blueprint for all those who are actually willing to work hard for their dreams and desires, irrespective, of what circumstances they’re in, stood even after many failures and still want to make a change. Don’t wait for the new year to start and then you’ll be executing your decisions. Start from this day itself so that you don’t have to wait for anything and anyone!

Forget about those past 11 months and it’s time to focus on the present. Let’s give it a fresh and positive start so that you can execute every single plan or wish you just had in your mind which will be beneficial for you in long run.

I believe December is the most important month of the year as you can finish the year off strongly and make REAL PROGRESS when everyone around you is slacking off and thinking about the holidays. Don’t get carried away like everyone else especially if you’re behind on your goals and dreams.

Here are some quick tips which I want to share with you people!

  • Make the most of this month and work on your idea since everyone around you is relaxing and slowing down. Make the most of this time.
  • Work at your highest level and it’s the time to prepare yourself for the upcoming year.
  • It’s the right time to avoid distraction and make it happen, what you have always missed out!
  • Stop complaining and whining about every small thing. Patience is what you need and just believe in yourself and your timings. Things will get in your way at the right time and in the right manner.
  • Occasional practice gives occasional results. Dream every time and work on your idea daily.
  • You’ve got to dedicate yourself every day to master yourself. Your belief in yourself will what get you on the top.
  • Invest your time in yourself and for yourself. Put in every single effort required to develop the right skill and knowledge in this so competitive world.
  • It’s the right time to build your network, to meet new people and gain more knowledge.
  • Experimentations may get you failed but the experience to fail will teach you how to get one step ahead.

Trust me, It will be alright. Don’t ask me how I know this, I do. Even in the darkest of our times, the sun will still rise and the stars will still appear at night. Trust me, you have that power and strength to move in the direction that inspires you.

Follow your heart, do what you believe in and create beautiful work that touches your souls and simply takes your breath away!

Make the most of this last month and don’t forget to thank your loved ones.

See you in the next one, people!

Autumn Style, Done Right!

Howdy, People!

Relaxing on a Lazy Sunday and still not off from work. Argh!

So you must be thinking what next I’m going to cook up this time? Well, this time I’m coming up with fashion and lifestyle for you people. I’ll be sharing all my knowledge on the grounds of fashion and lifestyle with some cool tips which you’ll get to know super soon.


AUTUMN is considered to be the most amazing season when it comes to fashion and styling and that is the same reason why I have started with autumn. I have always felt that Autumn has a secret relationship with fashion and lifestyle. Do you think the same? Anyway, how’s autumn treating you people?

Don’t let your style game fall away with autumn leaves!

Hereby, presenting my first look of this Autumn season. Check it out!

Coming to the outfit now, just kept it very simple and elegant. Chose denim for this look as it is actually the comfiest wear in this season, will definitely add grace to your overall look and yeah, will never let you down. My love for denim will never fade!

Glacial blue jeans are what I prefer with denim more than black. I know black is a universal colour which does go with every outfit but when wearing denim, the only mistake we people generally do is by wearing any dark jeans with denim which actually does not suite well than any light coloured jeans. Fellas, keep that in mind!

Denim with light coloured jeans suits and looks the best!

Like any good outfit, the accessory took it to the next level. I styled it with a plain black scarf to pep it beyond the norm. The right scarf can add boatloads of charm and personality to your look, a great consolation during those frigid, unforgiving months of winter.

 

Bought this really amazing denim from Flipkart under Highlander’s Denim and these jeans from Wrangler, shoes from Adidas Originals and watch from Carson watches.

Love the denim? You can buy now at the link –

That’s all for today. I hope it was worth going through. All ears for your reviews now!

See you in the next one, people!
