Who needs Critics??


Who needs Critics? We all do….at some point in our lives.

When we become too confident of our abilities or when god wants to change our direction, or when we should be doing something better – In all these circumstances, we come across these special people called ‘critics’.

They may sound rude, unforgiving, harsh in the beginning, but there’s usually a lesson behind the words they say.
A critic’s voice holds deeper meaning than what it appears to contain.

A critic can help you look inside your soul and ask yourself – Do I really want to do what I am doing? Is this the right path for me? Why does it seem, that I am being pushed away from this path and being redirected towards a different goal? Is this a sign, an indication? Do I need to re-assess my abilities and my goals? Do I need to move on?

A critic can pull you down – but if you act like a spring – Greater the pressure with which you are pulled down, higher the force with which you will spring back to life!

Critics are essential to make us understand that there is still some scope for improvement. Critics do not lie and if they do, they are not critics.

Everytime I have met someone who has discouraged me, brought me down, pointed out my mistakes, I’ve felt bad for sometime, but later on…..I stood up, rose higher and convinced myself that this is not the end – there’s a lot more to come – including more criticisms.

I need critics. I need them to drive me away from what I am not good at….and force me to move towards the skills which I am good at!

I need to improve and although…. I did get hurt in the process, I think I’d still like to thank the people who were my true critics.

Thank you for being there. (Because of you, I am here – and not there! ) 🙂

Rise above Stress.

ImageStress drains you out…. It takes away all your positive energy and enthusiasm.
It makes you feel you are not loved….that no one is with you and you are left all by yourself to handle life’s struggles.

Stress makes you vulnerable.

Do you realize when you are stressed? What do you do to come out of it? Can you recognize your emotions, your body behavior when you are stressed? Do you just give into it?

When you recognize that you are stressed… keep away from other people ….because it is quite possible that you will let out your negative energy in the form of anger, anxiety or complaints.

Handle your stress – accept it. Think how can things be made better and ….if you are unable to think – just try to make yourself feel better. Don’t think too much.

Do something you like – all by yourself. Manage your energy levels. Refill yourself with love. Recharge your energies.

You give out what you have within. If you have stress, you give out stress. If you have love, you give out love.

Rise above stress. Rise above your weaknesses. Don’t let stress make you feel weak. Don’t let it overpower you.

You have the power to change your emotions, without complaints, without any disagreements. It comes with practice, like everything else in life.

Maintain one hobby that reduces your stress. Pursue it when ever you feel you are not giving out ‘happy energies’. It will refill you with love and those vibes will be reflected outside.

You are what you feel within. Rise above stress.

Follow your Passion

Having a passion is one thing, but pursuing a passion is a much bigger thing. You pursue what you dream of. You pursue it because you believe in it. It’s something that drives you to do better. It can run in your blood vessels and increase your blood flow. It makes you nervous and it also makes you happy. All of us have passions. Some of us just fail to realize them. Nothing can stop us except we ourselves. Follow your passion. Run after it so hard that you just catch your dream in your hand. It will shine like a pearl, a miracle, a blessing in your hand.

…..You have to make time for your passion. You do not know where you will land. It may be no where or it may be somewhere. Stop worrying about failures. Stop worrying about what others may think. Do what you think is right for your dream.

Stumble, fall, get up, fall again, rise……but dont give up.
