My current job requires me to focus on many different types of works for a considerable long amount of time on a daily basis. It demands constant context switching, staying productive and delivering results at the end of each day. I read many interviews of the successful people in order to find out how they have achieved this difficult task and as I eventually came to realize that no matter what you do in your life to get success, FOCUS is indeed your key.
Haven’t you heard that stress is bad for your health? There is even a popular saying “this stress is killing me”. But today I found this very eye-opening video from Kelly McGonigal ( shared by my friend Paushali on Facebook). Kelly, who is a popular Health Psychologist, discloses in this video that ‘our negative belief about stress is more harmful than the stress itself’! Watch the video to find out all new perspective about ‘stress’. Don’t forget to comment what you think of it!
When I opened Facebook today, found a very interesting post shared by my friend Anirban. How most of the time hard work and dedication of high performing individuals is overlooked and their success is attributed to their good luck. Like Anirban I don’t believe in luck either. But I don’t think only hard work and dedication can be the key to success or happiness. There is more to the equation. Otherwise the lowest paid people in any professions didn’t have to work hardest to earn their living. So what’s the missing link?
Dreams are also great indications of what is deep buried in your mind that you need to work on. Sometimes you are giving your best in your every waking hour, thinking positive thoughts, you are happy most of the times, you are taking necessary actions steps, but somehow you are not getting the desired results. You are not living the life you wanted. It seems like you have everything, but still as if something is missing from your life. Some void inside, that is haunting you, but you can’t identify. Haven’t you ever felt it?
