Do you have any fear in life? For years, I feared everything. I had fear of losing my job, meeting new people, looking good, what others will think of me and my work, how will I be able to write blog post similar best blogs in the world, how will I speak on stage and everything you can count on.
I was also afraid of expressing my views on something important, I was too much worried on not spoiling my reputation that I almost spoiled it. I was frustrated.
During my escape into the self development world during this frustration, I came across the term “Mindset” and learned that one’s mindset is what separates us from the rest and we can choose to respond to the situation based on our mindset. I was amazed at this thing that we can actually feel the way we want in any situation and we don’t need to depend on anyone.
I decided to try it. I selected the best 6 mindset quotes which resonated best with me and tested them. Here’s what happened.
Stop being afraid of what could go wrong and start being excited about what could go right.
I was always worried when I wanted to give seminars. I used to worry about what would go wrong. What if I fail? As a result, I never approached anyone for seminars. But then, when I started thinking about what could go right, I was super excited about the seminars. I suggested about the seminars even before I prepared the speech and it turned out pretty well. I use this hack everytime. Start thinking about what could go right and jump in.
You don’t need a new day to start over. You only need a new mindset.
I used to attend many events and always wondered, how do these people conduct such events? Then, after attending one such event, I immediately created my own event. I didn’t knew how I will conduct the event, who will be the speakers, which place and many more things. I gave myself 27 days time and it was all accomplished very easily. It happened because I created the event on same day and didn’t wait for another day.
Had I waited, it would have never happened. I just needed a new mindset.
The most dangerous phrase is, “It’s always been done that way.”
If Travis Kalanick, Phanindra Sama, Sandeep Maheshwari and Deepinder Goyal had done as it was done always, we would never have used Uber, RedBus, ImagesBazaar and Zomato. Just think how these and many more startups have simplified things for us.
If you want help millions of people, stop thinking the old way. That’s the beauty of these mindset quotes.
If you are not willing to learn, no one can help you. If you are determined to learn, no one can stop you.
Many people still ask me how do I get time to do all these things, write, make videos, speak as well as conduct events with a full time job? It’s because I am willing to learn. I want to know how to get out of rat race and I am excited about my future. When you are excited about your future, you will do anything to make happen.
There are lots of resources and people out there and if you don’t want to learn, no one can help you. If you are ready, no one can stop you.
Every unintentional mistake you make is progress.
I make a lot of mistakes at whatever I start. It’s the same with my first book, my first event, my first job and even my first video. You can easily point out the mistakes. Everyone makes mistakes but what I loved is I didn’t let that stop me.
I used those mistakes not to affect my work next time. I improved and became better.
Never let mistakes stop you from believing in yourself if it’s unintentional because every unintentional mistake you make is one step closer to progress.
Still, there comes a time when you want to quit. Even I wanted to quit. But the magic of these mindset quotes is that the moment I decide to quit, I came across another quote.
If you quit once, it becomes a habit. Never quit.
I quit writing my third book. It became a habit. I quit making videos every week, it became a habit. Now, I have to try thrice as hard to get back on track.
Never quit. The moment you quit, your brain forgets you did it at all and then you have to start it all again.
If you quit for small things in life, you’ll slowly start quitting big things in life. Think 10 times before quitting. It has the most dangerous side effects.
