Self-Help — A Step For Yourself
How many times did were you fall when you were learning to ride your bicycle? And whom do remember picking you up? In my case, I cried, stood up, brushed off my clothes, and started my ride again all by myself. Now stop and think of all the problems around you and tell yourself that NOTHING and NOBODY can stop you from being happy. See, the things are very clear — you will very rarely find people who are genuinely happy for you, so, be happy for yourself.
Self-help is not just limited to overcoming any difficult situation; it is a wider concept. It includes all those miraculous tools like self-motivation, self-appraisal, self-confidence, self-efficacy, self-support, self-realization, and so on.
So how do we start with this? I give you six steps to follow in your daily routine and then, you can see the change in yourself.
In the morning, reminisce about the good in your life and talk positively to yourself (remember the law of attraction).
Smile more often and spread your sparkle everywhere you go.
Focus only on what you can control and never compare.
Never, I repeat, never speak ill about yourself.
Love and ask for hugs from the people who love you.
Change the changeable, accept the unchangeable, and remove yourself from the unacceptable.
Do not orient your mind on collecting material pleasures; collect love, happiness, and people who will support you on your bad days.
Alexander the Great, who conquered the world, had three strange last wishes:
His physicians alone must carry his coffin.
He wanted the path leading to his grave strewn with gold, silver, and precious stones, which were in his treasury while his body was being carried to be buried.
Both his hands were to be kept dangling out of his coffin.
According to T.V. Antony Raj, when asked the reason for such strange wishes, Alexander the Greatsaid, “I would like the world to know of these three fundamentals:
“I want my physicians to carry my coffin because people should realize that no doctor can really cure anybody. They are powerless and cannot save a person from the clutches of death.
“My second wish to strew gold, silver, and other precious stones on the way to the graveyard is to let the people know that though I spent all my life accumulating riches, not even a grain of gold will come with me when I leave this world.
“I want people to understand that it is a sheer waste of time, energy, and peace of mind when one yearns to be rich. With my third wish of having my hands dangling out of the coffin, I want people to know that I came empty handed into this world and likewise will go empty-handed from this world.”
So don’t worry about anyone and be happy. And with every sunrise, continue being the best version of yourself.
