Yes, Its Good to compare with Others…

Don’t compare with others! That’s what everyone keeps telling. But Why not?
 
I say its good to compare with others, but do it with this small shift in mindset.
 
Compare yourself with others in the Future. Ask this Question:-
 
In the next 3 years where I will be and where s/he will be?
 
Do this for every comparison you make, big or small. You will be achieving much higher success thru this and be more determined to see yourself at your bests!
 

Roads or Buildings?

 

Road: A road is a thoroughfare, route or way on land between two places to allow travel and communicate.
 
Building: A building, is a structure with a roof and walls standing in one place, such as a house or factory.
 
If you compare, buildings do not stay more than 100 years but roads do. Once a road constructed it gives unanimous approval to connect and travel forever. Buildings, on the other hand, begin to morph as soon as the owner or tenant decides they need to.
 
Roads are a platform in that sense whereas Buildings are utilities that need to be changed with age and time.
 
When creating an organization, technology or any kind of culture, the roads are worth far more than the buildings.
 
So how do we want to do things around here Roads or Buildings?

Fear of Exams

“Fear of Exams” is it good or bad for success? The same is true for a job interview, presentation to a team, performing in front of an audience or in sports.
 
We all have been into these high-pressure situations. “The Fear” is one of the critical factors, which pushes us to fail or succeed. Is it good or bad for us to be in fear and prepare ourselves? Let’s look at Pros and Cons:
 
Advantages of “The Fear”:
#”The Fear” boosts our mind and body allowing us to focus continuously hence increasing our chances to succeed.
 
#Sometimes with the adrenaline rush of “The Fear” we solve much harder problems in these difficult situations, which might not possible in normal situations.
 
#With Practice to tackle “The Fear” it becomes easier, we stop fearing Exams (Or Interviews, etc) and grow more confident in all areas of Life.
 
Disadvantages of “The Fear”:
#If failed, we get in a state of turmoil and depression. Self-doubting ourselves, never logical thinking that our preparation might not be enough. And because of so much pressure, it leads to negative(Suicidal) thoughts. Especially, in case of the younger generation.
 
#Even if we succeed the experience is traumatic and we start avoiding it. Think about it, a job Interview even if you succeed you still remember it as a fearful experience. Avoiding interviews in future if possible. It’s more because of “The Fear” mentality than the actual interview process.
 
#”The Fear” leads to short term thinking, more driven because of social and peer pressure. We completely miss the bigger picture of life. If we want to become a programmer how does failing in one job interview hinders our goal. There are a lot of other ways to become a programmer like to become a freelancer. But since we get into “The Fear” mode we look at it as do or die situation, which is not true!!!
 
My vote is to get rid of “The Fear of Exams”. Look at life more long term with a goal (Or set of goals) and keep working towards it. We may still fail but will be more persistent and determined to succeed and achieve it. Moreover will never fear to try it again and again and hence be more successful!

Learnings from “Avengers: EndGame”

  • Badass steals the limelight, the movie is about Thanos and his terror. He was the biggest hero and died like a hero. So being Badass is not bad in this world!
  • Superhero needs other superheroes to win whether its big or small. Ant-man though not as powerful as Captain Marvel was the only reason Avengers could go back and win.
  • Consciousness rather over-consciousness is not good! In fact, it clouded the Superheros’ judgment, divided the whole group, delayed the fight back.
  • Team is more powerful than family. Thanos daughters betrayed him and helped Avengers. Whereas Avengers Team though broken re-established & won.
  • Superheroes are heroes’ if their worlds exist. Imagine a sudden wipe out of your inner circle. Power & Money have no use without society. It’s in the eyes of our world (Inner circle) we are Superheros! And that’s what we aspire.
