I know we live in a time where mankind is primarily divided into 2 groups- Marvel and DC. 😆 But do you all know- Who was the most powerful man in the Universe during the 1980s? It was, He-Man- the superhero with exceptional strength. When the bad guys attacked, he used to yell out this quote- “By the power of Grayskull… I HAVE THE POWER!”
I was just randomly browsing the internet, saw a video and I suddenly got these nostalgic memories about my childhood days, watching cartoon all day long during school vacations. Fast forward to being an adult now, I realize that, YES- I DO HAVE THE POWER! No, not the superhero powers (although I wish to have one someday). I’m talking about my power to define my future, control my life.
Have you ever thought what goes in the mind of a strong negotiator? Of course they’re rational and calculating all the figures in their head, but the first step of their plan is, “I’m going to win this deal”; and hence follows their strategy to make the client say- “I agree”. Whether you’re playing the midfielder or attacker in your football team, or going to ask that guy out whom you’ve been drooling over for the past few months or participating in a contest- All you need is a winning mindset. Control your mind or it controls you. Your mind is so powerful- it can make a heaven of hell or a hell of heaven!
The first time I sat on a speed boat- I was scared as a baby bird ready for its first flight (1. I don’t know swimming. 2. It’s really embarrassing to fall.). 🙄 I kept telling myself- “I can do this.” Mind over matter. Once the ride started, I felt that electrifying energy running inside me. It was a foggy weather with on and off drizzle sometimes, which made my first speedboat experience even more unforgettable.
While this isn’t an inspiring example, I learnt an important lesson that day, and that is- no matter what your circumstances are, what situation you’re in, always strengthen your willpower. Encourage yourself that you can do it and you’ll get through it. Once you build this mindset, I’m sure you can face any challenge in life.
Does time wait for anyone? No, right? But do you know you can slow down time. Want to know how?
By intensifying the quality of your life. Yes, that’s all you have to do. While everyone’s chilling, jetting off to a long planned vacay, enjoying a birthday bash or simply doing Netflix and chill; you keep practicing for perfection, keep pushing your limits. If you want to transform your life; if you want your life to be different, then you have to do something different first. Don’t hit that snooze button. Instead, be an early bird. Hustle in the first hour and you’ll see yourself taking maximum efforts to have a productive day, every day.
Once you have this strong determination, your boundaries are expanded to be limitless. You’ll have this extraordinary source of energy inside you which will keep you agile on any work you set your mind to. Make self determination the theme of your life.
