Living a Successful Life

People have always been finding a way out towards the success. Having a desire to achieve success is basically a part of human nature. That is why struggling for a successful life is a matter associated to each mankind. All of us are well familiar with a popular saying “survival of the fittest” and in fact, the concept of survival and struggle for a successful life are closely associated to each other. But a lot of questions may arise that what are the parameters of the success? Every person has the ability to get success according to his own choice and right according to his desire? Is there any hard and fast rule to be successful? Struggle is for a limited time period or it is the phenomena that is part of our life until we get died? These are a few but, list of such questions is very extensive.
Having an analysis over the lives of different successful people and various success stories reveals that although, journey towards the success is a combination of a plenty of different factors but a few of them are very common. Various factors depend upon the approach of an individual but those factors which are very common in nature are quite obvious demanding no argument. In fact, those are like a base or you may call them pre-requisites to the success. So, as a building cannot be established without the base similarly you are not able to start a journey towards success without getting yourself equipped with these components.
Realizing the Importance of Life
The first and foremost ingredient of the recipe of success is the realization about the importance of life. Realizing about the importance of something does matter a lot. If you are going to realize the importance of an event, then definitely you are going to struggle for that. For example, if you are enrolled in a degree course and you are well familiar with the fact that on completion of the degree you are going to get a reasonable job and a respectable image in the society, definitely you will work hard to achieve that objective. Similarly, a team entering the ground representing a country is not only to play there but to be a source of respect and honor for the respective country by winning the contest. In the same way, thousands of examples can be quoted in this regard.
Same is the case with realizing the worth of life. Life is not merely spending your days and night in an ordinary fashion and waste your time in a random way without planning the events of your life. It is all about fixing your priorities, developing a framework and schedule of activities and finally executing the plans in an efficient way. It also known as program planning. When you actually realize the truth about your existence then you are ready to move forward in a right direction. There is another element associated with the realization of the worth of life is giving value to the available time. Being thankful for the available moments and doing something important not only for you but people around you is possible only when you are going to realize the importance of time.
An Example of a Young Boy
An example is worthy to be quoted in this regard. Once there was a young boy having an age of 22 years. In spite of being young and having a lot of energy, he was not living a positive or purposeful life. Rather, he was busy in criminal activities most of the times. His father had died and his mother was quite worried about the future of her only son. She tried her best to put her son on track but all her efforts failed to bring about a positive result. Finally, she heard about a renowned astrologist. She took her son to the astrologist and presented the whole case in front of him. She was very worried about the future of her son that is why she asked the same question from the astrologist. She requested him to predict the future of her son after telling the whole scenario to the astrologist. First, he kept on silence. The mother was getting more worried over his expressions. While breaking his silence, he said “Are you ready to hear the truth. Do you have such a brave heart that you could be told any truth”? She replied in yes. The astrologist predicted that her son is going to die. He has a time of seven days to live more. It was an astonishing prediction for both the mother and the son as well.
Enriched with a natural spirit of love, the mother was crying and totally depressed after knowing that her son is going to die after seven days. Her son was also depressed. And of course, he must be. When you are going to know about the reality that after some days you are about to die, what will be your response and feelings? Perhaps, at this time you are not ready to even think about it. Just imagine what will be the situation of that young man. Anyhow, time was passing. He could not sleep the very first night after knowing the fact. He started thinking about his past life. While making an analysis, he realized that he had not done something special during the whole life so far. There was no positive contribution from his side. Rather, he had been teasing the people since long. He had been behaving like a rascal. Now, he was feeling ashamed for all he had done in the past. He was sorry for what he did to her mother. He thought people would blame her mother for all his wrong deeds after his death. He wanted to apologize those people he had teased once. Although, list was lengthy yet he decided to begin. He started apologizing the victims of his wrath and ignorance one by one. Finally, he visited and apologized all those names mentioned on the list. Now, he was able to sleep with comfort when he had apologized his victims. Now he had no fear in his heart and mind. Time was passing quickly and finally, it came the last night for him to live. He was ready to die while on other hand, his mother was crying and waiting for her son to die as it was predicted by the astrologist.
The young man went to sleep thinking that he will never get rise again. He got rise three different times during the night thinking that he had died. But, all the three times he realized he was alive. He was worried and confused and finally, the sun had risen the next morning. He was very confused and took no time to reach the astrologist. He requested him to do something for the confusion he was suffering from at that time. He said to the astrologist “when I was not ready to die, you told me that I would get died. Now, I am ready to die and death seems nowhere. Your prediction was wrong.”. The astrologist replied that my prediction was 100% correct. Because at this time when you are sitting in front of me you are a new person. Now you are an ashamed man feeling regretful for your sins. First, you were not even bothering about that. Congratulations for a new life and new journey.
The example is a true example of the fact that realization about the value of the available time is a great source pushing you and motivating you in a positive way. So, why you should wait for a tragedy or another source of motivation. Just make a rule of your life to be grateful for each moment of life and try to do positive things. Life is a great blessing and each and every day is very valuable without any discrimination. Now it depends upon you that how you behave and utilize this available time and manage to do positive deeds before it’s too late. Realizing that life is a worthy source to positively contribute in a society and time is very precious makes you capable of not only managing your time but also bring about some positive outcome.
Realizing your Potential as an Individual
Drop joins another drop and eventually, it turns into a sea. Individuality has an importance in itself. Either you are a family member, member of a society, member of a country, member of a playing team or a part of an organization; your individuality does matter a lot without any argument. Never forget that individuals join each other to become a nation. When we pass some positive remarks about a nation it means individuals of that nation are actually receiving praising remarks from us. In fact, behavior of those individuals and their approach on an individual basis is finally depicted on a broader spectrum that we call a nation. Having a desire for success demands you to realize about your personal potential and value of your individuality. You must be very sure about the fact that members or citizens of a nation are not going to be successful until or unless they are not going to realize the potential and importance in their individual capacity.
Similarly, if you are working in an organization and you are assigned a specific task on your end. Now, task done by you on an individual basis is leading towards the success of the whole organization. You are not an only member, the organization assigned a task to complete. Rather, each and every individual of an organization is assigned a different duty. When all the members complete the work on their ends individually, finally it results in the success of an organization. If a single member of an organization is not going to work in an efficient way, he will become responsible for providing damage to the whole organization. Another example can be quoted here that surrounds performance of all the players in a football or a cricket team. Victory is always a result of a team-work. Put aside the exceptional cases when only a few players or an individual player becomes responsible for the victory of a team. Exceptional cases are not a routine. Thus, success is universally associated with the efficient team-work. If your cricket or football team is equipped with some extraordinary players and still your team is going to lose then must be thinking about the fact and importance of teamwork. As much as there is flaw in the contribution or performance of individuals, the team get on a distance from the success.
Supremacy of an Individual
While working in an organization, there is a key feature need to be focused that each and every individual must be given an equal value. Boss of an organization sitting in the office, man force of the organization including the laborers drivers and guards are all important. Remember that an association, organization or institute you are associated with, is represented by the individuals.
Let me explain it with an example. Suppose that you are a good student belonging to an educational institute. Now, wherever you go, whatever you do, how you perform is all going to affect the reputation of the institute. Either you perform well in curricular or extra-curricular activities, you are going to directly affect the institute, you belong with. The story is not going to end here. Even, during your professional life, while serving against a specific post, your performance and working efficiency will be going to affect the reputation of your institute at that time too. Similarly, bad performance of an individual may result in humiliation for the whole organization. So, each and every student need to be polished well so that he could contribute in establishing a good reputation of the institute. Same is the case with an organization. Giving equal value to each and every individual will result in an exemplary collaboration that is responsible for the success of an organization.
Any discrimination made on the basis of scale or status may force the individuals to destroy the image of an organization. So, make it a key rule that team-work and equal importance given to each and every member of a group, organization or institute will ultimately level the way towards the success. If there will be no discrimination among the people working in an organization, definitely there will be a positive and collaborative environment that is necessary for an organization to develop and flourish with consistency. It was about institutions and organizations for the purpose of making your concepts quite clear about the fact. When it comes about the representation of the nations’ globally, same criterion is followed there. Perhaps, at that time you are going to represent your country or nation at a wider spectrum and comparatively vast platform. It doesn’t matter who you are, the fact of the matter is that you are the representative of your country. You may be a visitor, student, worker, an employee or even resident of another country but your attitude, working efficiency, dealing with the people and way of living is directly going to affect the image of your country in one or another way. So, there is need to train and develop our individuals. It is only possible when we are going to admit the supremacy of the individuals.
Wasting your EGO into a Dustbin
Believe or not, your ego is one of the major barrier that prevents you from getting successful. Surprisingly, you keep your ego very dear to you in most of the cases. Don’t you think that keeping the enemies like this so dear to you is ridiculous approach? Why don’t you put the ego aside and move forward freely? Remember, ego is your worst enemy. Until you are not going to tackle this enemy, you are not going to be a successful person. It will be a surprising thing to know about the fact. Questions may be rising in your minds that how the ego is going to play the role of a barrier on the way leading to success? It may not directly influence you but indirect or silence attack by the ego is more severe and quite damaging. Ego may lead you towards jealousy, pride, comparison and competition in a negative sense.
Suppose you are the owner of a motor-bike while your neighbor has a car. Apparently, it does not make any difference. Let him drive his car and enjoy your ride on the motorbike. But, your ego gets involved in the matter. Now, it has two different perspectives. The person driving a car may feel superior to the person driving the motor-bike. On the other hand, the person having a motor-bike may feel jealous to the person who has a beautiful car. So, both of them are going to waste their energies in a negative direction. One is feeling superior just because of a minor cause and other one is feeling jealous for no reason. Apparently, it seems normal but in fact, such mentality is going to affect you in the long run. Rather than wasting your energies and getting depressed and jealous, you may go for planning and executing in an impressive way. It may result in failure for the very first time but you will become successful eventually.
Similarly, ego stops you from doing something of your own choice and wish. You are going to plan something according to your own position and compatibility. You are very confident about execution of your plan but suddenly you get disappointed and decide not to go for your plan. Do you realize, what actually stops you? Yes, it is your ego that you keep very dear to you. What people will think about it? This is not the plan for me rather I should go for something more valuable, people will criticize me and list goes on. These are the gifts awarded us by the so-called ego. The story is not going to end here. The ego; a very dear friend of you is going to spoil you on many other platforms. It will lead towards a useless comparison and negative competitions. Someone is enjoying a luxurious life and you are going through a tough time. In the situation like this, rather than thinking about that person of getting deprived from the luxuries of life why don’t you go for discovering the fact behind his success? Making a useless comparison will merely spoil your mental efficiency rather, thinking about the matter positively may result in betterment for you. It is quite possible that by following the principles of a successful life you may become a successful person someday. But, in the other case you are just going to make yourself depressed and useless. So, why don’t you go for the recipe including the positive ingredients to taste a successful dish?
Setting the Criteria for Your Happiness
Being positive is a key component or ingredient for getting happy. Moreover, happiness is responsible for letting you move forward effectively until you are going to achieve your objectives. There is another factor involved in this regard is about fixing your priorities. Happiness depends upon the criterion you have already selected. For example, if your set standard for happiness is getting 60% marks and you get that. Definitely, it will result into happiness for you. On the other hand, there may be another person who have set a standard of getting more than 90% marks. Now, even getting 90% marks will not make him happy because his set standard of happiness is getting more than 90% marks. Similarly, another example can be quoted in this regard. There is a person working in an organization and hopeful for getting 5% increment the next month. The day comes when he is to receive the salary. He gets surprised by noticing that he was just expecting 5% increment while he is about to get 10% increment. Apparently, it looks normal but it has a great impact psychologically. By increased percentage of his increment, his standard of happiness also gets raised. Next time he will not be thinking for 5% increment rather he will be thinking for at least 10% percent. Even, he will be doubtful about 10% by considering a possibility of 15% increment as it happened to be the previous time. You may raise the question that what positivity has to do with this. Positivity is all about enjoying the little happiness and sources of minor delightfulness. For example, rather than depending upon the set standards of happiness why don’t you go for getting delighted over what you have? Why don’t you bother for getting maximum and try not to get happy for a minor benefit? You are not always so lucky to get maximum profit in a consistent way. So you need to develop a sense of satisfaction and happiness even after getting a minor happiness it will change your attitude and finally, you will become an efficient worker with a happy and peaceful mind. While following the opposite track will not give you any reward rather than the frustration and depression.
Thinking Positive
Thinking positive will also lead us to avoid useless criticism just for the sake of criticism over others. Criticism is no doubt, a source of flourishment and progress in a true direction but it must be positive. Positive criticism is not going to get generated on itself but a positive attitude and positive thinking results into positive criticism. So, moving on the way toward success you need to bother about this. Positive thinking is your weapon that you are going to use in terms of getting your objectives fulfilled and become successful.
Positivity also makes you passionate. Definitely, when you will be optimistic rather than being pessimist, chances of your reach to success will automatically get increased. People plan in their life but fail to execute their plans just because they are pessimist and positivity stands far away from them making them an average rather than a successful person. Thinking in a negative way sometimes misleads you. Negative thinking has a direct impact on creativity or deep analysis. A positive thinker has more areas to get explored while negative thinking leads you to think in a narrow fashion. So, preference depends upon you either you go for positive thinking or negative approach. An example can be quoted in this regard. Once, there was a wife and husband living in an apartment. There was another apartment in front of theirs. The wife had a habit of standing in front of the window and criticizing the habits of the family living in the opposite apartment. For example, she used to criticize about the laundry. She was of the view that the family living in the opposite department doesn’t have an idea or awareness about how to clean the clothes in an efficient way. She kept on repeating the criticism for many times and finally, a day came when she went to her husband telling him, “Look! They heard my voice. They realized that I wanted them to clean the clothes efficiently and today, I am successful in making them realize and they get their clothes cleaned in an efficient way.” Her husband smiled at her by telling, there was nothing like this and it was all about her perception. He had cleaned the window glass that morning and it was the only reason for everything to be appeared clean and clear in front his wife. Just imagine, negative thinking and useless criticism of his wife got her deprived of even thinking from different perspective.
Motivation Acts as a Fertilizer
Motivation has the value of a nutrient and fertilizer for a human mind and body to grow. For example, you join a gym and go there regularly. There is only one motivation behind that. Yes, you guess accurately, weight loss and muscles development is the motivation behind the habit of going to the gym. Similarly, getting enrolled in an educational institute and working hard is also result of a motivation. Motivation to learn, excel, getting trained becoming a good professional and successful person.
There is another very important point worthy to mention. Schools are just like the nurseries. You need to grow a healthy nursery for getting extraordinary yield. Although, teachers deserve appreciation for their contributions but some of the areas still needed to be covered. Motivation has a great connection with the success. You cannot even imagine that even a single word of appreciation and motivation can make a person successful for the whole life. While, in the same way, a single word resulting in discouragement of a person may stop him reaching the success throughout his life. It is claimed that 100% children are born genius but society turn them to average just by passing their arguments. Even, parents are found saying that our children are not capable of doing this so it is better for him to do something else. Who we are to suggest, dictate or predict that which field of study or career suits a person best. Why don’t we let the relevant person think and decide freely where to go? Especially, when people are young they are full of energy and enthusiasm. That is the time not to discourage and criticize them. Instead, it is the actual time to motivate and guide them so that they could get successful in achieving the objectives in their life with a great efficiency. Keep in mind, discouraging remarks at this stage may turn a genius to an average man.
On the other hand, there is also a piece of advice for the courageous and enthusiastic persons not to listen the discouraging remarks. People are not capable or responsible for turning your dreams into the reality but a courageous man himself is. Don’t look for the remarks of people and don’t wait for their motivation. If you are confident that you are going to contribute positively, then plan your program and execute it in an efficient way. Taking a practical risk for positive purpose is much better than dreaming for the whole life or discussing your ideas on a table. There is another golden piece of advice that keeping on searching for the excellence is another important component of success. Making efforts for a limited time is not the way to become successful but keep on searching for excellence with more enthusiasm is the actual way to become successful. Perhaps, this is the routine to be followed until you die.

Students, who follow the regime offered by experts in competitive examinations, end up making a major level of difference. This has increased the quality of competition as well. Nowadays, the bars of competition have been set high and the hurdles & challenges on the way have been increased. This adds to the overall performance of the students as well. Without increasing the level of challenges, one cannot expect to get the best out of the brilliant brains.

Understand Competition

Competition is a very tricky concept. You may increase your troubles by getting into the race if you don’t know the purpose of it. Also, competition is healthy and inspires you to do better. It is never with someone else. There may be others in the same race, but always remember that your struggle is with yourself only. If you are better than who you were yesterday, you are on the right path. The best way to deal with competition is to push yourself towards a better version of you tomorrow.

If you see competition has causing harm to others or being jealous of the people who are doing better, then you are on the wrong path. If people, who are weak from you, make you feel superior, then also you are not on the right path. Your idea should be to compare your yesterday’s version with your today’s performance. This is not an easy thing to do and you will not learn it overnight. It will take time to become a part of your thought process. Hence, you will have to practice and practice.

Introspection: Self Analysis

Introspection is the key to success for the students appearing in the competitive examinations. It is one of the most positive qualities one can have. The concept of self-assessment for your weaknesses and strongest points is equally applicable in routine life of every individual.

Every one of us has weak points and strong points. There are times, when the weakness is prevailing and keeps us from doing our job. On the other days, the positive quotient is high and we are able to take on all the challenges coming your way. But, succeeding in competitive exams is similar to swimming against the flow. It would never come easy. It will require the best of your efforts and test your abilities. However, the reward that you receive at the end will be life changing and totally worth the struggle. But, the question is, are you ready for the struggle it demands?

Are you willing to change the flow of your life and streamline it towards your success? Are you willing to do the required efforts? Are you ready to transform you lifestyle, as the time requires? Answering these questions before you get into the struggle is very important. These are the answers that you should give to yourself. It is all about self-analysis and introspection. You should honestly know what do you want and how determined to do things in order to modify your life.

Understanding Introspection in the Context of Olympics

The importance of self-analysis, self-examination and self-improvement can be better understood by taking examples of medalists in Olympics. Every country sends participants in the biggest sports competition of the world. Every country has its contingent fighting for medals and glory on the global front in different games. But, what is the reason that a very few of them end up getting what they were dreaming of and rest return empty handed? Does that mean they did not try enough? Does that mean they were not good enough? Is it about their preparation? What could be the point that one country has multiple medal winners and another country has negligible medal winners?

Asking these questions and trying to find out the answers is the analysis. This analysis is very important to understand the loopholes and fix them. The countries, which are leading in Olympics, are the ones, which have been engaged in this kind of introspection for years. Their players, gaming strategies, preparation plans, past performances, upcoming ideas, everything is being analyzed and made better in every possible way.

There is a reason why Olympians like Usain Bolt and Michael Phelps have multiple gold medals in their name. They have become legends in their games and they make a great difference into other’s lives by spreading inspiration. They did not become who they are, overnight. It took decades of hard work, self-examination, challenging lifestyle, introspection and hard work to implement all the required changes. Usain Bolt practiced all the techniques of cutting air with his body while running a sprint race, told by his coach. The trainer of Michael Phelps taught him the techniques of right body postures and hand movements of cut through the waters while swimming. He practiced everything with dedication and today he is the biggest and most celebrated Olympics swimming champion.

This means that having a dream and caliber to achieve that dream is just not enough. Dedicated and consistent amount of hard work is very much required to utilize these qualities and move ahead. There are various people with the same qualities, which the winners have; it’s the efforts and hard work that makes the difference. The ones, who work hard to hone their skills, turn their dreams into reality. It goes with competitive examinations. Many students have the knowledge, caliber and ability to crack the most difficult competitive examinations, but they never are able to do so, because they lack the required efforts and following elements:

• Dedicated efforts
• Practice
• Hard work
• Discipline
• Regular introspection and self improvement
• Self-motivation and faith in oneself
• Visionary attitude
• Ability to sacrifice second important things for the primary goals.

Goals are goals. They can be for sports, academics or anything else that you want to conquer in your life. If you have settled and goal and you want to achieve it, there is a mechanism to it. Without doing a certain things and without adding the required efforts, you may never be able to see that dream transforming into reality. Discipline, hard work, focus on the goal and determination towards self-improvement are some of the key points.

Life Management Beyond Academics

If you want to do great in academics, you cannot do it without managing your entire life beyond academics. If you think you are putting required efforts in preparing for a competitive exam and rest of your life is a haphazard, then you may never get successful. People, who succeed in their lives, against the ruthless competition are the ones who manage their entire life, decide priorities, allocate their time accordingly and turn down all the distractions that lure them in wasting time. This is not an easy task and requires dedicated efforts and complete guidance from the experts. The premier coaching institutes have life coaches and trainers, who guide the students to manage their lives. It totally depends on the students to take the guidance and implement it. Therefore, self-assessment and watching your each step closely becomes the most important factor in your success.

Prioritizing Your Goals

Everyone has a lot of things to do in life. All of the things are important and have their own value. The only trick here is to understand the priority. What is most important should be kept on top priority and done accordingly. Without this, it is impossible to achieve anything in life in streamlined way. Everyone has his or her own ways of handling things in life. Stuck amidst myriad things, people often forget to work according to priorities and end up doing nothing.

If you have a apriority list and allocate your energy and efforts according to that, it is logical and scientifically proven that you will be able to accomplish your goals more effectively. For example, if you are a student, appearing for national level medical entrance test and you also like to dance. You should know that for that particular year, your priority is medical entrance examination. Hence, your focus should be on that. This does not mean that you should give up on dancing. It just indicates that you can keep aside dancing for a while and taking it on once you have accomplished your goal of getting into a good medical college, you can take on dancing again. Hence, your second priorities can be kept on halt for a while to accomplish your most important priority. All the successful people use this formula only.

Putting Second Most Important Things on Hold

There is a long list of things, which fall on the second most important step of your life. They seem equally important and hence distract you now and then. Some people keep accessing to these things in the name of mind refreshment. But, actually, this is nothing but wastage of time. Everything that deviates your focus from your prime goal is a distraction. You may love it and find important in your life but you must learn to avoid it until your goal is reached successfully. Your second important things, hobbies, plans and ideas can wait until you achieve your first goal.

Love your dream, its challenges and difficulties

You cannot achieve your dreams until you love them. It is important to love your dream, its vision and its difficulties. You cannot spend your life chasing a dream until and unless you really love it. If you are doing it without love and passion, you will lose interest eventually. It is important to understand that you are wasting your time, if you do not whole-heartedly accept your dream along with the challenges, difficulties and pain it brings. You can only stay motivated about the things you love.

Do not chase a dream because someone else has told you to do it. Find your passion, love for the dream and find a logical reason to do it. Always remember, if you love something, it becomes easier to do it.

Questioning Yourself

This is one of the highly ignored phenomena. The practice of questioning oneself is not very common amongst people. They find it awkward to introspect their conduct and raise questions on their own decisions. They are rather defensive and want to portray themselves in good light only. But, if someone were not happily accepting the flaws and trying to correct them, how would improvement take place? Always remember, to be successful, you continuously need to improve yourself. This improvement may not be a very pleasant experience but it is important. It is difficult to take negative comments, accept them and make modifications. However, in self-analysis you should judge yourself in the light of your goal and things you need to do for the same.

Focus is the Key

When you sit in the competitive examination for three hours, it is important that your mind is sorted to perform to its best capacity in the given three hours. Everyone has the caliber to solve the most difficult entrance examination too. But, what matters the most, is the ability of individuals to solve it in the given time. Someone, who manages to solve the exam in given three hours, wins the race. To make it happen, you have to follow the strategy of focus. Always remember, focus is the key to success. You need not to learn, read and remember everything. You just have to read and remember the things, which are relevant and will get you good score in the examinations. If you are a student of medical entrance examination, you have a huge syllabus to cover. Rather than struggling to read the whole syllabus in incomplete manner, it is advised to study 75 percent of the study material, but in complete manner.

Think Positive

Positivity has become such a common term nowadays that people have started taking it for granted. People are asked to be positive and they listen to this term quite often. Too much of information in their minds makes them feel that they have been practicing it. This is a wrong notion though. By hearting about positivity or merely talking about it will not make you positive. It will definitely show you the path, but the destination is yet so far away. One has to understand that being positive is a routine practice. If you tell your mind to practicing being positive all the time and follow the good habits that lead to positivity, you will see the difference.

A positive person is likely to be more successful. It saves you from stress and empowers you to make better strategies rather than the ones, who are too tensed all the time. Negative emotions are full of energy. If they are prevalent, they will make sure that you do not succeed at all. Positive emotions are equally powerful. They will ensure that you succeed, if you practice them perfectly.

Clarity of Goals

The most common mistake competitive examination aspirants make is to get confused with their goals. They do not understand how should they proceed ahead with their goals and divide them in small little milestones, which are easily achievable.

Your everyday goal should be to study as per the plan that you have achieved to conquer the final entrance examination. You should be able to apply all the strategies your teachers have mentioned and assess yourself on the basis of that.

There are some students, who over the time realize that medical is not their area of interest and they need to choose a career option that interests them.

In both the cases, it is very important to consider the smart options. You have to consult with the expert counselors to ensure that nothing deviates you from making the right choice. You can take personality test, choose better options in terms of discussing your areas of interest, research about the future career prospects and then take a wise decision. You should never hurry in taking any such decision. Here are some of the options that you can explore as alternate to your career to MBBS:

• Allied medical sciences –Homeopathy, Veterinary, Dental, Ayurveda, Nursing, Pharmacy and more.
• New age advanced career options-Food science, food technology, biotechnology, microbiology, nutritionist, dietician, medical technology, cryptology, audiology, clinical research, public health admin and forensic sciences.
• Traditional options: Bachelors studies in given disciplines, followed by master studies-Zoology, Botany, Microbiology and Genetics.
• Research Options- Liberal arts, psychology, Homi Bhabha Research Institute, IISER (research driven courses) and IISC etc.

If you want to switch your career and have a plan B to ensure that your time is not wasted, it is recommended that you proactive call and start looking for these courses in advance. You may not take admission in any of them later, but it is important to fill in the forms and sit into the examination. The backup should be ready just in case your medical career plan doesn’t work out the way you thought it would.

Amidst all this, if you have become tired of physical, chemistry, mathematics and biology, you would want to change the field. This time, it is very important that you make the right choice and pick the subject, which actually interests you. Planning a career in new field will be slightly challenging for you. Hence, you will have to prepare yourself accordingly.

Goal NEET2018

Tips to study and  boost your potential

1)PREPARING FOR NEET IS A NEVER ENDING BATTLE BETWEEN

“TIME V/S SYLLABUS”

TIME IS LIMITED BUT SYLLABUS IS UNLIMITED

MOST OF THE STUDENTS ARE TRYING TO FIT THEIR WHOLE SYLLABUS IN THE LIMITED AMOUNT OF TIME THEY HAVE……….BUT DOING THIS ALWAYS CREATES STRESS….TOPPERS NEVER DO THAT….

THE BEST WAY IS TO MAKE A LIST OF ALL THE TOPICS AND SUBJECTS ACCORDING TO THEIR PRIORITY AND THEIR IMPORTANCE IN EXAM………AND THEN…….

WHENEVER YOU START FEELING PRESSURE BUILDING OVER YOURSELF,DROP THE TOPICS IN THE END OF THE LIST……

THIS IS ALWAYS A SURE SHOT WAY TO SUCCEED BECAUSE BY DOING THIS YOU ARE ALWAYS ASSURED THAT
“IMPORTANT TOPICS WILL NEVER BE LEFT AT THE MERCY OF UNIMPORTANT TOPICS”
2) #healthy #meditation #bepositive
Taking less sleep is not gonna solve anything,if you really want to increase your study,try to increase your concentration while study,and avoid wasting time…………..these are the things you can do for more effective studies……

1) Do some form of meditation to increase your concentration

2)Do not skip meals,try to eat healthy and avoid junk food

3)Take at least 8 hours of sleep and keep a lot of time for rest

4)Avoid negative people and those who demotivates you,even if they are your best     friend

5)Start your day by completing the hardest thing first……

6)Focus more on the quality of your study rather then the quantity

7)Read a motivational book if needed

8)Try not to get involved in any relationship till u gets selected….you are not in a position to become emotional for anything

3) #Biology #revision

After completing any chapter in biology from NCERT try to revise it   backwards paragraph by paragraph……………..this will force you to think and put more concentration……….and will be in your memory for long time.
while revising biology from NCERT cut down all the lines and paragraphs you think are unnecessary for you to revise and are not that important for you.

this way you can reduce biology to 80%(ELIMINATING THE FALTU 20%) and can give the remaining time to one more revision

4) #focus #dontlietourself #innerpeace

when you are achieving any goal or when you are trying to prepare for any exam,it always depends on three things

A)you
B)your coaching and mentors
C)your hard work
whenever we face problem in study we usually focus and try to work on no.B or no.C(no.A is mostly ignored)
most of the time student feels a lot of guilt because they think they are not working hard enough(and in some cases it is correct)
but what i have observed in many cases is that students never look inside themselves and are not willing to resolve the inner conflicts and issues they are having……………90% of the problems can be solved if we keep working hard on ourselves……………

if you are solved from inside it will become very easy for you to search for right guidance
and if you are happy you will get the most of out of your hard work
IF YOU FEEL DEMOTIVATED OR IF YOU ARE WASTING A LOT OF TIME AND ARE NOT WORKING HARD TO THE LEVEL YOU THINK YOU SHOULD…………THEN INSTEAD OF FEELING GUILTY TRY TO FIND OUT THE INNER ISSUE YOU ARE FACING THAT IS CREATING OBSTACLE ……………….ONCE THAT ISSUE IS RESOLVED ….REST EVERYTHING WILL FALL IN PLACE ITSELF.
“HARD WORK IS NOT NECESSARILY THE ANSWER TO EVERYTHING BUT INNER PEACE AND HAPPINESS IS”
5) #afterexamstartegy #reducemistakes

.After solving any paper or giving any test,go through the whole paper once and write down your mistakes and what has to be done to improve it for next time,

keep doing this and after some time you will see a pattern of your mistakes.
keep this copy for before exams

Before final exam go through these notes of yours to prevent  yourself from doing the same mistake in final exam.
6) #lifeskills #valuable #igaine
1.working under pressure

2.ignoring what others think

3.time management
4.facing competition
5.smiling even when you know it hurts
6. maintaining concentration
7.”saying no” to friends and family,when you know you have to
8.getting by less sleep and still using brain with full efficiency
9.seeing others win and move forward and still believing that someday i will to
10.respecting others coz i know its impossible to win every single time
(THESE ARE THE SKILLS YOU CAN USE IN ANY AREA OF YOUR LIFE,THESE ARE THE SKILLS THAT THE MOST SUCCESSFUL PEOPLE IN THE WORLD POSSESSED ,SO AFTER ALL ,ITS NOT THAT BAD TO WORK HARD FOR MEDICAL ENTRANCE,YOU ARE SIMULTANEOUSLY LEARNING “HOW TO LIVE”)

7) #planning #systematicplan

1.completing theory,

2.doing question practice

3.solving paper in 3 hours time

THESE THREE THINGS ARE COMPLETELY DIFFERENT.YOU NEED PRACTICE OF ALL THREE.

never think that just because you are good at theory,it will be very easy to complete the paper in three hours.

solving paper needs planning and skill which gets developed by practice.that is why it is so important to regularly solve paper with time limit.
Find a mentor who guides u and then motivates u to make your own decision……

How to prepare for neet 2018

​how to prepare for physics:-
1)the biggest mistake students do is that they try to complete whole syllabus of physics(it is stupidity)

physics is not meant to be completed……….your job is to select out the most important topics and practice them rigorously..

2)you cannot base your selection on the basis of preparation of physics……………you have to be good in other two subjects…..

3)if you only solve past 25 year papers of neet/aipmt physics and complete the selective theory related to those questions alone………you will be easily able to correct 25 questions in physics in neet ,because in physics same type of questions related to the same theory gets repeated again and again….

4)if you are not able to afford coaching for physics,at least find someone to help you with past 25 year papers…………….and if you can afford a little, find a teacher to teach you only selected important topics of physics…..

5)if you have a lot of doubts in physics and your concepts are not clear…..do not worry……………..do portion from past 25 year questions that you can easily solve ……and practice it only………..very few questions in neet physics are very hard……………most of the questions are of medium level….

6)complete the portion from where theory questions comes in physics…..

7)mechanics is not the selection deciding factor………….if you are good at it…..that is ok…….if you are bad at it…that is also fine……….because you can use that time to strengthen biology and chemistry……..

Inorganic chemistry:

1)coaching notes are the best place to study inorganic chemistry from.

2)most of the questions asked in inorganic are direct,information based and simple…………the key to succeed in inorganic is a lot of question practice because it takes very less time to solve questions in inorganic

3)read ncert once and only tick the portions that is not already covered in notes

4)s block, p block, hydrogen etc are the topics in which ncert has given a huge amount of theory(especially in p block)…………..try to have a read at it and only tick the important portion or the portion from where questions have been already asked in neet…………….it is very difficult to complete theory in these chapters and it is too bulky and hard to remember……….so instead of spending too much time in these chapters just read them,solve past year questions of them and move on……spend remaining time in rest of the inorganic…


strategy for neet 2018:-

1)do all the tough topics before December…..this is the best time to clear all your doubts of tough topics and get hold of them..

2)do as much experiments you want to do with your studies in the beginning……….this is the time to test new things..

3)never change what works………….if you have followed a particular way of study till now and it is producing you results,it is better that you continue in the same way…………if you want to try new things,try them,but build your new ways along with your already working old ways……..

4)find your mentor………..find someone who you can trust ……………..may be any of your teachers and be in continuous touch with them …………..they will be very helpful to you when you are confused and need guidance……..

5)if possible make friendship with past year toppers on facebook…………and directly talk to them…….their current knowledge on the pattern of exam and their exam experience can help you a lot…

6)your study material should be manageable……….do not take extra material unnecessarily………….always keep final exam in mind and develop a strategy about how you are going to revise all this…….

7)as per 2017 neet paper………you need to solve questions of medium level in physics and chemistry but you need to practice more and be precise…………you have to control the no. of silly mistakes
(a lot of very good students were unable to perform this year in physics because they have not been expecting easy paper…..and that is why they did a lot of mistakes which they would not have even imagined in their dream that they would ever do)

5 Simple Ways To Utilize The Power Of Gratitude And Live The Life You Want Now

images (3)

You have the power to change your life right now, but it might not feel that way. Much of adult life is spent worrying about what might happen in the future or complaining about what happened in the past, but gratitude can help you take control of your life and give you the tools to start building a new way of living. These 5 simple ways to utilize the power of gratitude will help you live the life you want now and give you back the power to succeed in your life.

 

 

 

1) Appreciate The Little Things

 

With gratitude, it’s important to start small. Focus on the little things in your life that you appreciate–you have enough to eat, a bed to sleep in, clothes to wear–and retrain your brain. It seems like society is encouraged to think of the negative before anything else, but these destructive thought patterns keep you in the same depressing cycles and take your power away. Take back your power and focus on all the little things that you are grateful for. Give yourself a reason for gratitude and happiness now and your life will bloom!

 

 

 

2) Focus On The Present

 

It’s time to let go of what you can’t control and start focusing on what you can. Living in the present is one of the best ways to take control of your life. Instead of worrying about what was, or what might be, be grateful that you are alive now. Think of all the things you have to be grateful for right now, in the present, and focus on those things. No matter what is going on in life, there are always things to be grateful for. You might not be working in a job you like, but take heart! Instead of focusing on the bad, focus on what you are grateful for about your job–it gives you money to pay your bills, or enough for a vacation–and, if it’s still not what you want, take control and look for a new job.

 

 

 

3) Let Go Of The Past–And Be Grateful For What You Learned

 

The past can be full of hurt and pain, but you don’t need to live in the past forever. One of the major ways the past can take control of your present is by occupying your thoughts now. Use the past as a learning experience, be grateful that you were able to continue on after challenging situations and then let go by focusing on your present. The past can only hurt you if you choose to obsess over it. Take back your power and move on from the past.

 

 

 

4) Be Grateful For What You Have Now–While Envisioning A Bright Future

 

Part of taking control is realizing that your life is already wonderful, but giving yourself goals to work towards is a great way to channel your energy into positive pursuits. By focusing on gratitude now, it will be easier to accept when more good things come to you in the future. Your mind has been stuck on the negative for so long that you second guess when something good comes into your life and, instead of being grateful, you just wait for the next bad thing to come and ruin it. Change your mind and set it on gratitude and you won’t believe how your life will change!

 

 

 

5) Focus On Experiences And Not Stuff

 

People fill their homes with useless junk when they’re feeling bored or unsatisfied with their lives. One way to combat this hoarding is by investing in experiences and not things. Spend time with family and friends–go on adventures in your own backyard–and cherish the beautiful memories you create. No one can take away the happiness that comes from new experiences with people you love. Be grateful for the people and moments in your life where you’re having fun or doing something new and exciting, or even when you’re doing something mundane. Cherish all the beautiful moments you’ve spent with family and friends and you’ll be happier than you ever thought possible.

 

 

 

You have the power to rewrite the plot of your life. Though at times you might feel hopeless, all that you need to do is adjust your attitude. Changing your thoughts seems hard because it’s all on you. There’s no one else responsible for how you’re feeling other than yourself, and that can be a hard reality to face. But when you take back control over your feelings and start channeling your energy into what you’re grateful for, you will become the architect of your own life, instead of a nail that’s repeatedly hammered in.

Highly Effective Study Habits That Can Improve Your Performance

tips-for-effective-studying

HOW TO MAKE THE MOST OF UR STUDY TIME

Natural intelligence is useless if not paired with hard work and dedication. To fulfill your academic potential and achieve everything you are capable of, you must put in the study hours. Luckily, studying is easier than your might think and, like most skills, can we worked on and improve with little effort. Here are 8 ways to improve your grades through more efficient revision and study.

 1) Where to study

Where you study is just as important as what you study. Before you pick up any book , find a spot which is most conducive to productivity. Find somewhere quit so u don’t get distracted and comfortable so u can sit for longer periods of time without getting restless.

A desk with an upright chair ideal for exam preparation, as it mimics the conditions you will be in when you take the test, your brain will subconsciously link the conditions you study with the material you are learning so on exam day the silent information will be easier to recall.

2) Look ahead

The most effective way of studying is to start early. Look ahead to when our exam are due and prepare well in advance. Give yourself enough time to study and you can break your revision down into smaller, more manageable parcels which are easier to commits to memory. There is no quickly fixing to learning large amount of material, so plan ahead.

Shorter study periods are less daunting and easier to get motivated for, so you will be more likely to keep to your study plans. Consistency is key and studying everyday overall a long time period is a tired and tested method of ensuring you stick to it.

3) Plan your week

Now you that know how long you have got to study, you the break the material down to ensure you cover everything adequately. Draw up a weekly timetable so you can see what you will be studying each day. Factor in down time and make it as reasonable as possible while still pushing yourself to reach your goal.

If you fall to stick completely to the plan one week, don’t panic. Ensure your lapse is a one off by assessing why you didn’t adhere to the schedule, making changes if necessary, and then getting straight back on the metaphorical horse. Stay flexible enough to roll with the puches but focused enough to stick to the plan wherever possible by reminding yourself of why you are studying and what you are working towards. Sacrifice and discipline now will pay dividends in the near future,

4) Eradicate distractions   

Set about minimizing or completely eliminating anything which might feasibly distract you from your task. You must be able to sit down in front of your study materials and give your undivided attention to the task a hand, so make it easier on yourself by completely removing anything that might cause you to break focus.

Turn off your phone and unplugged the TV and draw the curtains.

5) Pace yourself

Rome was not built in a day. If u start with grandiose ideas of achieving your goals in aweek, you will just set yourself up to fail realistic expectations, whilst not as exiting, are infinitely more conducive to success

Get yourself a small but achievable goal to complete everyday over a longer period. Five minutes every day will have a greater impact that one hour evry seven days. Consistence is king. The slow but steady approach requires foresight so plan ahead.

6) Rewrite

Rewrite your notes or study materials. Ensure the act of taking notes in class doesn’t distract you form listening and concentration on what is being taught by taking briefer, more concise, notes. Later on, rewrite those notes, expanding on what you have written with what you have learned. The physical act of writing down information repeatedly with help it sinks in.

7) Time management

Take time to configure and achievable weekly time table. Factor in other considerations and commitments in your life and create a schedule you know you can stick to. Be realistic in your approach and disciplined in your execution. Allocate a small study period to the same time everday and commit to it.

When you inevitably stray from your planned routine, don’t panic. How you react to indiscretions is the real test. Get back on the horse and slide straight back into the routine.

8) Environment

Now you have got your scheduled figured out, you need some where to study. Find a quiet corner where you feel comfortable. Try to find somewhere without distractions of sight or sound and where you can study without being interrupted.

If you are studying for a test, try to mimic exam conditions.
