Breaking The Habits!

For all those who missed out on an opportunity to have quit smoking as their New Year resolution, here’s good news for all of you. Be it your own addictive personality or someone else's, here are some steps that can be taken to battle it.

Acknowledge yourself: The first step to recovery is to admit for a fact that you are an addict. Be supportive and understanding towards yourself or a friend and on a very positive note accept your/his shortcomings. Take responsibility of your own actions and feelings and face the world positively.
Stop avoiding: With everything else in between, you can figure out how to handle it. Wean yourself off cigarettes by cutting down. If quitting sounds too thorny, consider a delayed fulfillment. Promise yourself pizza on Saturday if you can curb your caloric intake all week. Or put off that smoke break for 20 minutes and perhaps your burning desire will drop.
Obtain information: Keep yourself updated with information. When you know you are not dealing with a fear of the unknown, your attempt to overcome an addiction becomes easier. You'll able to help a friend or conquer his demons if you've done some research and have relevant, helpful advice to offer. You can even try it on yourself if necessary.
Meet like-minded people: There are a huge number of 12-step programs and other support groups available. You or your friend might find it helpful to get together with other people who have similar problem. Talking about the addiction reconfirms the fact that you're not the only one living with enslavement.
Stage an intervention: Consider yourself walking into a room one evening; visualize your girlfriend, boss, brother, and best friend. All of a sudden gather your thoughts and think someone is locking the door behind you, don't panic. It's called an intrusion and they want to tell you how your habit is wreaking havoc in their lives. Getting angry and defensive will not make it any easier. Try listening. If you have to take this type of stand with a friend, read up on it well in advance. It's a highly emotional but potentially life-changing event.
Seek professional help: There's no embarrassment in obtaining medical help or psychological counseling. Whether you suffer from one addiction or several, you can find different ways to combat the compulsion and reclaim your mental and physical health. Speak with your doctor or call a counseling referral line.
If there is such a thing as an addictive personality and you are inclined to potentially harmful time-consuming habitual actions, being aware of it allows you to regain your determination.


Get Inspired: Live A Full Life


YESTERDAY IS PAST, TOMORROW IS YET TO COME, WHAT WE HAVE IS THE ‘PRESENT’ WHICH TRULY IS A ‘GIFT’.
All that we have been bestowed with today is what makes us a complete being, for you never know what the future has in store. So are we making the optimal use of our numerous blessings today to make our lives seem even slightly better than those less fortunate?

If we make the effort to notice the small details around us, we can actually learn the true meaning of life. Here’s how you can notice the finer details in life…
• Enjoy and live every moment to the fullest and try to gain/ learn something out of each.
• Notice the changes by asking questions and finding their solutions.
• Stop complaining about and judging other people, and accept them with their short-comings. Master the art of forgiveness.
• Empathize with other people’s feelings and learn from their experiences in life.
• Stand for yourself and develop a sense of self-reliance and security.

Remember: Everyone cannot be there for you always, same way as you cannot be there for them every time.
• Shed your prejudices and be open to fresh ideas.
• Take time to relax and enjoy, without ignoring your needs.
• Live your life to achieve what you believe in and what you think you deserve.
• Work to your best capability towards anything you feel is worth achieving.

Remember: If you wish for something to happen, try to make it happen with sincerity and perseverance.
• Be thankful and content with what you have. Derive pleasure from small things in life, which you otherwise take for granted and many others are deprived of.

• Yes folks optimism is the key to a successful and 'inspired' life.
• The positive energy in winners allows them to rise above the mundane, cut through red tape and display occasional, brilliant flashes of excellence.
• Just like fire in the fireplace which must be started with small bits and twigs, so too the fire in life can be kindled with generous and constant boosts of positive mental energy.

Unravel The Secrets Of Mastering Life


Mastering life and control over destiny are synonyms in the true sense. A select few actually are successful in doing either of them.
Many a time we feel the urge to act without thinking, to spontaneously do or say things for which we are sorry later. There is always a part of you that says it is right in its actions. But don’t let your passion do the talking instead listen to your mind.

The key to mastering your life is identifying your inner strengths and weakness and dictating your actions. Rash actions are in actual resistance to your thoughts. Free your thoughts from the shackles by changing your thoughts that create opposition.

Success lies in believing that you can and transforming these thoughts to actions. As the saying goes "You are a king if you are ruled by your mind, a slave if ruled by your body."

Pep Quote
"It's lack of faith that makes people afraid of meeting challenges, and I believe in myself."
--Muhammad Ali
