Life can be a mess. A big fat mess. Times come when you just feel like giving up because of situations. Times come when you feel like doing nothing and just everything. It seems all gloomy and helpless. *sighs*
So you suddenly remember you have to check your phone. You open up your Instagram and start scrolling down your feed like a couch potato and then, suddenly a motivational quote occurs which says “Don’t give up”, even though you are least bothered. You start scrolling again and then you find one more quote. You still ignore. You scroll. Found new quote. Ignore. Scroll. Repeat.
A point comes when you feel “what is happening? Why are there so many motivational quotes right now in front of me? Maybe, I shouldn’t give up. My head feels heavy.”
Truth is :
a negative experience is a positive experience in itself and a positive experience is a negative experience in itself.
Well, I read this one from The Subtle Art Of Not Giving A Fu*k by Mark Manson. Good book tho.
Speaking of motivation, have you read any of those self improvement books?
If you haven’t, my friend, you need to. Self improvement books give a kick start, a little bit of push to your lazy and tired brain.
For me, personally the books have worked so far. But wait, it’s not only on the reading. It’s on the implementation. If you read something that helps you in your life, it won’t work until you start to execute it. So more than just reading those methods and formulas, execution is crucial.
Also, I have noticed one thing about these books. You need to constantly be in touch with it. One cannot master an art just by doing it once. It will take time to adjust, to grow, to move forward but just don’t stop yourself.
There are times when what is written in the book won’t work out for you but then again, it’s your wish and will. You are supposed to make it for yourself. Everyone is different after all. You can’t expect it to be all same. Yeah but that doesn’t mean that you are supposed to wake up at 10 a.m. everyday and end your day by 12 a.m.
So, just breathe.
Well, bonus part. The list of books is :
