A tale of everlasting

Even wind is on your side
pushing me towards you
with all the forces killing
the chance of feeling your
crisp on my flame.

It scares me to touch you,
as you will melt away.

But I am hoping you will fall on me,
at least you will soothe my ashes.

I am wrong for you in all the levels
of life and you are deadly for me
with each flake you make.

How can fire and ice ever
exist side by side?

Yet together we create a picturesque
sight.

Be the best version of yourself!

The power you have is to be the best version of yourself you can be,
so you can create a better world.

In our lifetime, we create many versions of ourselves. In every stage of life, from childhood to getting old, we go through many transformations. Each of these transformations adds some value to our personality and our mindset.

But how often these transformations are for our happiness. In our childhood, we create a persona to please the people around us or irritate them. In short, the motive is to get attention. When we become teenagers, we try to create a different persona to make new friends and make them like us. When we enter the adult stage of our life, the struggle for making a successful career starts where again a new transformation starts for survival and the hunger to go up the ladder starts. Later in our thirties, we get married and have kids. Again a new change starts, the struggle of becoming a good spouse and a good parent.

Many people in this world go through all these very smoothly and stay happy. But are you at your best? Is your full potential used in what you are doing daily? Are you doing what you love or what you want to do in life or be in life?
There is always a hypothetical situation that runs in the corner of our brain. That said, “If the situation was like that, I would have done this!”
Why not create the situation and do the damn thing?

Being the best version of yourself is not about being happy, content and satisfied in life. It is about unlocking your full potential to do what you are good at doing. Every person has a unique trait and talent or skill. Using it daily makes you the best.
When one becomes the best version of themselves, they start contributing to the betterment of their surrounding. They can inspire others to be the best and bring goodness and development to society. How do you think we came to live in an era where technology is so developed. By just clicking a few buttons on your smartphone gets the work done. It was possible because many people brought the transformation of being their best version.

So how to be the best version of yourself?

Find a purpose in life.
Try finding something that makes you happy and willing to put all your efforts to be the best at it. Visualize the best version of yourself and try to understand what it’s gonna take to be it.

Get ready to leave your older version behind.
Our past experiences are very important in life as they help us grow and become strong. But it is also necessary to be willing to leave your older version behind so that you can embrace the best completely.

Start from the beginning.
We know very well that there is no shortcut when it comes to getting the best right!
Even if you feel like you are gonna fail, welcome the failure with open arms and give it a try and try to master the skill. Don’t stress much about how much effort and hard work you have to put. But being best at something doesn’t mean you have to be perfect at it. No one is perfect in this world.

When the opportunity knocks on your door, grab it.
A time will come when you will get a chance to prove your skills. You have to give your all in those moments. That’s the only way to test your skills. We usually tend to overthink in such situations, like “Should I take this opportunity?” “What if I can’t do it and lose what I already have in life?”
But rather than hovering on those thoughts, try having positive thoughts. Think about how you will feel if you get the job done successfully. Think how much change it will make in your life if you do it correctly. Thinking positive will create a success mindset in your brain which reduces the chances of failure.

Relax once in a while.
When you are already giving your best at something and working hard, it drains you mentally and physically. It is good to relax and try to soothe your brain. Every time you successfully take a step, try celebrating it. Relax for a day. It boosts your confidence and also makes you ready for the next step.

Try motivating others as well in your surrounding.
When you achieve your goals, people around you get inspired by you to get into that kind of mindset. Helping them will help you as well to move ahead. It creates a positive vibe and keeps you happy.

Try having a growth mindset.
Always try to focus on the outcome. If you keep your eyes on the prize, the path to get it becomes a bit easier. You become strong to endure the pain and hardship which comes along the path. Never judge and criticize yourself or others at any moment. Try being compassionate and kind to yourself.

Live your life on your terms.
You get to live only once. And this life is not meant to please others. You can’t keep everyone happy. But if you try to keep yourself happy then the people who accept you the way you are will be happy.

Book Review: The parable of the pipeline by Burke Hedges

Opportunities, unlike jobs.
Usually don’t advertise themselves in newspaper.
– Burke Hedges

Being financially free is something everybody dreams of right? But we all go the traditional way to achieve it, which is to do 9-5 jobs. But later end up realizing that a 9-5 job gives us scope to survive and save but never makes us financially free. This book helps you understand that even by doing your daily job, how one can become financially free.

This book puts the spotlight on the real facts of life. Showcasing that the money being earned in any of the job professions is based on the number of hours that you have spent. This means if efforts are not being given on a particular day, then you don’t get paid. And the money we earn is going to be over one day unless we make our money work for us and make more money out of it.
So in short, working a 9-5 job and making money, doesn’t matter how big your paycheck is, it is not going to help you to survive for long. This book helps you understand, how to manage your money and how you can invest it along with your time to become financially free.

To make a sustainable living it is important to make a source of income that can give you profits even when you are not working for it. Now, this can be done in two ways.
The first is to invest your money and let the money work for you and give you more money. This plan takes time and this is for securing your life after retirement.
The second is to invest your time and build a plan which takes a lot of effort from you in the beginning. You will need to sacrifice all your luxury of spending leisure time for the fun to working on building a plan which can eventually in a couple of years give you profit for sustaining without even doing anything.

Our daily 9-5 jobs can make our present good and luxurious but a pipeline building plan will secure your present and future.
But coming from a different perspective, both methods are important and both can be implemented simultaneously. It is important to follow the first method which is slow and takes a very long time but at the same time, you can start working on a side plan which will make your next few years exhausting but after that, life will be stress-free. Keep your eyes on the prize and work extra hours on building your own business. It is going to take all your efforts in the initial stage of building your business but it is going to give you all the leisure time you need in the coming future.
