If I have to give 3 simple advice to my younger 17 year old self, it would be the following :
Tell the Universe
Write as descriptively as possible to what you want/what you want to experience/ what you want to do/ how you want to live/where you want to go/ to whom you want to associate etc. Don’t be lazy in describing your deepest desires on a sheet of paper. Tell the universe as elaborately as possible about your thoughts. Words are extremely powerful, be fearless, honest and open in transferring your inner feelings onto paper.
Be grateful for the –
Sun shine, peace, parents, relatives, lessons, challenges, love, risks, comforts, luxuries, internet, water, clothes, friends, flowers, food, taste buds, music, gadgets, siblings, guidance, stars, nights, tears, laughter, life and death. Cultivate the attitude of gratitude for everything.
Take one step : Do it
Action is a crucial part of life. And our actions are regulated by our thought process. Remember Newton’s first law – A body in rest continues to be in rest, and, a body in motion continues to be in motion. Same applies to our habit of getting things done.
Whenever mind says, No!! It’s a huge task, postpone it….get up immediately and take the smallest step (to break the state of rest!). For example, you planned to woke up at 5 am, however, you got up at 7 am (the mind will make you feel that you lost it! You could not get up at the scheduled time…you are failure…etc!). Break the loop immediately! How? Start your day with one small victory : make your bed!
Would like to know, what you would advice to your younger self !
