You are Born to Ace in Life

Posted on June 18, 2014. Filed under: Uncategorized |

Ever thought of why you were born? Are you born just because your parents wished it or the clan should grow?

Do you think the God, the Almighty is a fool that he/she has created you, without any purpose?, certainly not!!!

The two most important days in your life are the day you are born and the day you find out why ~ Mark Twain

Finding out why you are born, what’s the purpose of your life is not a rocket science but not easy also. Learning from life of every successful person and the legends of the past, we can understand that they had some skills and talents that they excelled at. They used it for the development of human race. Those who differ to agree/argue on this essence of life, are simply living in self-denial and hence suffering in every aspect of life.

Look at every person in the history or present generation, those who got their life purpose – their life mission, were ordinary people just like us. Some catastrophe in life hit them hard catapulting them to raise themselves in life. Every person who has discovered their life purpose, was in the area of life they themselves suffered but rose up with a bang. So much so that they inspired everyone around them and specially those who are faced by similar challenges in life.

Nowadays, Nick Vujicic is one of the most famous and finest exemplary of this fact of life. He changed the very definition of the ‘handicap’ or ‘physically challenged’. Nick’s life is truly a rock solid proof we should be and can be happy with what we have. Also much can be achieved by just one talent and skill.

Now as you read this, you might realize that you have been blessed with not such severe issues in life, otherwise you could have found out your life mission. These are the words coming from the coward, your personality and it’s not your inner voice. Because in every one of us there is an innate quality that gives absolute satisfaction when we help others in any way possible. Even giving any alms to the needy gives us the satisfaction that we are contributing. Our inner voice craves for such satisfaction which is long term and not short term.

When you find your core talents and skills, match it with who needs it in society at large, with whom you can share it and help them. These very skills and talents are medium through which you are going to serve the human race. But this is only meant for those who have a matured mental understanding and believe that we are meant to be born for some reason, some purpose.

 

To start with, work rigorously on finding out your core skills and talents. Use your skills and talents to the optimum to help the society. For example, if you are very good in designing a product, you can probably design an artificial limb which can help the needy. That seemingly simple product can give new life to the needy, giving you the ultimate satisfaction on your life. If you have the skill of teaching, you can earn your livelihood as well do your work with utmost satisfaction shaping young minds. If you are good at programming, developing app, you can choose to educate the masses through apps.

 

The possibilities are simply infinite. Only the willingness and belief is all that is required.

 

When you discover your mission, you will feel its demand. It will fill you with enthusiasm and a burning desire to get to work on it ~ W. Clement Stone

Self Confidence Decoded

Self Confidence Decoded

 

Dictionary meaning of Self-confidence says – it says freedom from doubt and belief in yourself & your abilities. This doubt, generally prevalent; pertains to the doubts individual has about one’s own abilities reflecting in individuals confidence levels.

For boosting self confidence we have many self help books, ‘what is self esteem’ and ‘how to be confident’ audio – videos but all help to a certain extent which does not serve our purpose. Let’s see what makes it work or rather how it works.

To learn anything totally new or to develop any talent/skill we must get to the basics. Because all successful people are strong at basics and hence they are successful. Taking Self Confidence to the basics; self confidence stands tall on two pillars: Self-Respect and Self-Esteem.

Self Confidence is an outcome of Self-Esteem and Self-Respect, more accurately Self-Confidence is directly proportional to both i.e. better Self Esteem & better Self Respect yields more confidence.

Self Esteem is simply a feeling of pride in oneself or a quality of being worthy of respect. This makes it clear that to be more accurate; to have better Self Esteem one must be worthy of respect. Looking at the bigger picture for better self confidence, one must have better self esteem and for better self esteem one must be ‘worthy’ of self respect.

‘Being worthy’ is not expecting respect, but proving oneself to be worthy of respect and it all starts with one’s own self. If a person has respect for one’s own self only then others will respect. In other words, if you sell yourself short, people will naturally take you for granted and you lose respect.        A simple ground rule: If you cannot respect yourself, how can you expect respect from others?

Self Respect for one’s own self can be amplified by looking into and listing down things one is better at. This listing exercise itself will give a big boost to the limited thinking of selling oneself short.

To begin with Self-Esteem list down your strengths, what things you are good at? In what domain/skill/occasions are you an expert? The answers to these questions will give you a better feel. This ‘better feel’ is not just to make you ‘feel’ better; but it is to realize that you have the capabilities, expertise which you were not aware of earlier due to your limited thinking.

The ‘feel better’ exercise will boost up your self-esteem; you’ll realize that your understanding shifts from ‘I’m not that great’ to ‘Wow, I’m that capable!!!’

The upgraded Self-Esteem will in turn boost your self-respect. Because earlier you were not sure about your capabilities, but now that you are, you’ll have respect for your own self. Loaded with these upgraded Self-Esteem and Self-Respect, you’ll observe that Self-Confidence comes as a by-product.

Self-Confidence cannot be gained through some mental exercises, it helps no doubt about it but it’s not sustainable. Self – exploration and readiness to change own self from inside is what matters!!!
