The World is Not Your Enemy

There are times when I feel that everything in life is trying to fail me or take me on a road that is very likely to be a failure. In these times, I start wondering who our enemy is. The world? Or the people around me? Or myself?

This question is what haunts everybody in times of despair and distress. We start to blame everything, we become unhappy with everything. We become grumpy. We go into depression. Depression is something that haunts everyone in these times.

Don’t Let Your Doubts Take over Your Life

It’s so simple to despair and lose hope with something if we are willing to give up that thing too easily. Doubts come and go. Give power to them and it’s over. Never ever believe in doubts, they are the worst of the worst things that could ruin you forever. A single doubt can ruin friendships, relationships and even marriages. We can’t stay and wonder when life is bad, whether we are doing the right thing or not, because…

There is Just Not Enough Time in Life to Worry about Everything

You should realize it sooner or later. Worrying doesn’t make you younger. It just shortens your life span. More heart attacks, more blood pressure, more everything bad. We are humans and worrying is in our nature. Sometimes it’s good to worry. Maybe it’s essential but not always. Always worrying is bad and should be strictly avoided for your own good.

Reduce the Volume of the Voice in Your Mind That Fears Failure

Inevitably failure seems to creep up on us when we least expect it. ‘After all this work, after so much time, why do I fail? I want to give up’, this is one the most common phrases that people use when they’ve spent a lot of time working on something and it just didn’t work out as they wanted it to. As much as I love doing the same thing, I also know that there is no use or benefit crying over spilt milk. Because sometimes just two steps ahead of you, there lies success and if you give up every time you fail, there is a good chance that it will be most regretful thing of your life when you look back at it and know you could’ve walked two more steps to be successful. So remember failure shouldn’t discourage you but drive you further because failing means there is a good chance you will be successful someday very soon. It’s the way of life, we think we don’t have any say in this matter but the key always lies locked within you. And like I said, always try to remember, that the world is not your enemy and there is no use crying over spilt milk.

    1. @Rebecca Green Gasper Thank you. 🙂 The secret lies in letting go, always. You hold on too tightly to something then we’ll never be able to move forward and enjoy the beautiful life we have ahead of us.
