Life is an Evolution

April 03, 2017

In life, we are always learning new things, everyday we are either getting better or worse. Everyday we are evolving.

We are never the same, that’s why when we watch the same movie twice we will see different things, we will understand in a different way. A book will never be same when we read it the second time, we will discover new stories, new ideas, new concepts.

Six months ago I was not the same as I am today, during that last six months I learnt many things. Day by day I learnt new things, I started doing things in a different way.

The idea is to just start from something small and keep on doing it everyday-everyday regularly. Don’t worry about future, just do whatever you can do right now, do whatever you can do today.

When you are trying to travel from point A to point B, then you don’t need to see all the road from point A to point B, you just need to see few hundred metres ahead of you and when you move few hundred metres ahead then again you just need to see few hundred metres ahead of you. You just need to move inch by inch.

Here is the example:

(In the beginning, i just used to write number of days I have been alive. I was just starting.)

(Then, I started listing, “Five Daily goals I need to achieve to earn $1000 Per Months.” Planning my Day helped me to stay well focused and reminded me about what should I do and what I shouldn’t inorder to achieve my goal.)

(At one time, I got the idea of adding “Weekly Review.” But it didn’t lasted long and I stopped writing it.)

(Then after reading a Book, actually I forgot the name of book but it was about being happy, so after reading that Book I started including: “Things I am grateful for:” and “Things I can be in future:”. Since that day, I have been writing these two things everyday after Autosuggesting at night. Over time, it has also changed in forms and ideas. This has helped me to remain optimistic and grateful.)

(I started including, “What should I do, if today is the last day of my life?” You can learn more about it in detail here: If Today is the Last Day of My Life: Since that day, I have been writing it daily after after planning of my day. It helps me to get reminded of important things in my life and how should I utilize my time.)

(Nowadays it looks like this, I know there is still a long way to go. And I am ready to Evolve and Get Better.)

Note: Earning $1000 per month is just my Goal, I believe in “Fake it till you Make it.” In reality, I still haven’t earned a penny.  Moreover, I don’t think I need money or anyone’s permission to do what I love to do. This is what I love to do, to get better and help other. So, even if I don’t make any money, I will keep on doing this as long as I can.

Similarly, 6-7 months ago, when I started exercising I was just focusing on doing “Diamond Push Up.” Slowly by slowly I started including various forms of exercise in my routine as per the needs and desire.

Now, I have really experienced and realized that “Evolution is Better than Revolution.” I have finally understood, “A journey of 1000 miles begins with the single steps.”

Small Habits To Follow

February 26, 2017

(This single line represent single repetition of my Auto-suggestion (or Prayer). There are currently 126 days in this photo and can record upto 143 days.)

  • Auto-Suggest Daily: Since more than last 6 months or so, I have been regularly auto-suggesting. Currently I auto-suggest 3 times in the morning, just after waking up and three times in the evening, after my dinner.

In the beginning I used to do it for 100 times a day but thinking it was unsustainable and time consuming, I started to reduce it and reached this point.

So, what’s the benefit:

  1. Gives me the right mindset: Well, I can’t give you exact direct proof but I believe it has made tremendous effect on me unconsciously. In past I used to exercise and meditate but they were irregular, I used to do it for few months and leave it, again start after few months and again leave it after sometimes. But since last +6 months or so, I have been exercising, meditating and bathing with cold water daily. The only different thing this time is: I have been auto-suggesting daily. I believe I have been literally programming myself.
  2. Acts as Trigger: This is the first thing I do daily after waking up. It’s easy, I don’t feel resistance just repeat the same phrases, quotes, principles and goal everyday three times. I don’t even have to look at copy, I have memorized them. This prepares me for exercising. I exercise right after auto-suggesting. In the book Power of Habit by Charles Duhigg, he says habit contains Trigger-Routine-Reward. Auto-suggesting is the trigger for me to exercise. It’s so automatic. (Auto-Suggest) – (Exercise) – (Meditate) – (Clean the Room) – (Bath with Cold Water) – (Plan Ahead) – (Start Working)………………..It’s getting more and more automatic and becoming strong habit. 

    (Well, this one is little bit old, about 26 days old, currently I have replaced “Practice Typshala” with “Create a Video”. Moreover I write the same thing everyday, I am just trying to form a habit and it works. I have also created my own Youtube Channel and doing pretty well:Waytolive.co

    (I write the Part “Things I am grateful for” and “Things I can be in Future” only at night after auto-suggesting. )

    • Plan A Day Ahead: Just after bathing with cold water, I write these plans in my notebook everyday, I have been doing this thing since couple of months. It has given me better focus and differentiate between what is important and what is not. I believe it’s also programming and reinforcing myself myself to do what I want to do.
    • I believe in “Fake it Till you Make it.”

    These are just some of my best of the best habit that can be followed within 5–10 minutes.

    This is just the part of my journaling and saving my life in words. I hope I inspired you.
