“Speak when you are angry – and you’ll make the best speech you’ll ever regret.” -Laurence J. Peter

We live in an era where we are surrounded by people whose only motive is to say bad about us or to bring us down. So, in this era, it’s really easy to get angry and lost our peace of mind.

But it doesn’t mean that you should forget about the peace of mind and just get angry at a thing which has nothing to do with your life and with your goals.

Well, I personally believe that if it doesn’t help me to achieve my goals, then it’s none of my business. And I suggest you too to think in this way.

I mean you should only care about those things which are going to benefit you in some way. Whether it’s for achieving your goals or for self-improvement.

So, in this post, I will talk about how you can deal with anger in just 5 minutes.

So, let’s get started:

1. Take deep and long breaths.

Scientists have proved it that in the moment of anger if a person takes deep, long breaths, he will more likely to lose his anger/temper in a very short period of time.

Now, it’s time for you to make this your habit. Whenever you feel anger, instead of just spitting out everything that you have to regret later, take deep breaths and try to calm down.

“Believe me, anger only going to give you scars that you have to regret later.”

So, be wise and instead of getting angry, seek the peace of mind and try to calm down in every situation of life.

2. Distract yourself.

This is the one thing that I do most of the times. Whenever I get angry or feel tensed. I simply distract myself in some other kinda work or things. Like, I go on YouTube and start watching videos.

In this way, I calm down myself and keep myself away from all the anger and negativity and maintain my peace of mind.

You should try this thing out. Whenever you feel anger, try to distract yourself. There are tons of ways in which you can distract yourself away from the anger. Like, you can listen to your favorite songs, you can read your favorite book, you can watch your favorite TV show or just like me you can watch videos on YouTube.

It all depends upon you, how you distract yourself.

3.  Get out and go for a walk.

In the moment of anger, you can also try this out. Get out of that environment and go for a walk outside. It will surely help you to understand your anger and will also help you to overcome or you can say deal with it.

In this walk, think about all those things which have made you angry and think are those things really matter to you?

I believe it will surely help you to release your anger and to maintain your peace of mind.
Now, it depends upon you, what you choose. Whether you want to live an anger-free life, or just a life full of anger. Whether you want to maintain your peace of mind or just want to be angry and depressed. Whether you want to keep the things running or want to regret them later.

It all depends upon you, what you choose.

So, this is it. Let me know in the comment section below how these tips work for you.  And do share it if you like it.😊

Fake it till you make it

Well, you may have heard this quote a lot that fake it till you make it. But my question is, is this really what you need to become successful?

I mean you’re faking your journey, not just your journey but your whole image in front of your audience. And do you think that faking it and telling everyone lie is going to make you a trustworthy authority in your niche?

I don’t think so.

I personally believe that if you really want to succeed and want to become a trustworthy authority, you should spit out the truth. None of the bullshit or fancy lifestyle. Just show your audience what you really are and believe me you’ll gain their trust and faith quickly and for a longer time.

Now, let me ask you again this question, do you still think that fake it till you make it is a good approach?

Well, so now question arise that if this approach isn’t good enough, then what should one do who don’t have achieved anything big yet?

Document it instead of faking it.

Instead of faking it, try a different approach and document your journey. Instead of faking your lifestyle, faking your achievements, and so on, keep it simple and document your journey.

Just spit out the truth and let others know what you really are and see how this simple thing can become a life changer in your life.

People love to watch and listen to those who say the truth, instead of faking it.

Instead of showing them results, document your journey and let them know how you are doing it. It’s just our human nature that we love those who says the truth instead of just fancy bullshit.

Instead of showing them results, take them with you.

Well, if you think you’re going to fake it till you make it and then you’ll show them what you really are, then I don’t think you’ll gain that truth in your audience. Yes, many people have done it, but it doesn’t matter that you should do it too.

I suggest you take your audience with you on your journey, instead of just showing them the results you get. People will more likely to become a part of your audience if you show them how you are doing it and if you show them what you really are.

I mean instead of just making them your listener, make your audience a part of the journey and see how it can change your journey completely.

Well, think about it or not, but you have to care about your audience. You just can’t make them just your listener or watcher. Make them a part of your journey and in this way, they’ll more likely to want to be with you.

Make them feel special and see how it can become a turning point in your life.

So, now try a different approach and “Document it, till you make it.”
How to Motivate Yourself to Work

I have seen that it doesn’t matter how much do you love your work, or how bad you want to succeed. In life, there comes a moment when you feel lazy or just want to quit. Most of the times it because of a setback or failure. But keep it in mind those who overcome from that situation and work again with even more hard work, are the one who really succeeds here.

But the question is how can you motivate yourself to work when almost everything is going wrong? How can you keep going when you’re not getting your desired results?

Well, in today’s post I will share my thoughts and tips which I have personally used to overcome this situation and I am sure these tips will be going to help you a lot.
So, just take a coffee, sit down and read carefully.

How you can motivate yourself to work?

I am too just like you, I too get demotivated sometimes. But the thing is I know how to motivate myself. So, you now you might be saying like, ‘Manish come on just tell me, how can I motivate myself!’

Well, the first thing is you gotta love the process. You can’t just make it to the top if you do not love the process. Garyvee always says, “if you aren’t loving the process, you’re seriously missing a valuable part. If you aren’t loving the process, you can’t make it to the top.”

So, first thing first you gotta love the process. If you didn’t love your work, you’ll easily get bored and your desire to work more and more will vanish after a certain period of time. So, you should do what you love and you should love what you’re doing.

Now, most of you will think I love what I am doing, but still, I feel lazy and get demotivated easily. What should I do?

Find your why.

Well, let me tell you my short story. I have been blogging since January 2017 and now it’s more than a year over of my blogging journey. But the thing is I haven’t yet made any single penny from my blog. My long-term goal is to make a living out of my blog, but I haven’t yet made any money from it.

I have been consistently working on this blog, writing articles, just to help you guys without getting any money. Why? Because I love to help and love to write. Yeah! My long-term goal is to make money out of it, but that’s not the thing why I have started this blog.

See, I am continuously working on my blog because I love this process. I love to write and to gain more knowledge.

Did you get the point why I tell this?

You should have to find your “why.” You should have to figure this out that why you want to do this work, why are you even spending time on this particular thing. When your why is clear, you’ll work by yourself.

So, find your why and then you’ll see how things will change in your life.

Take care of your surroundings.

Well, surroundings matter. Believe me or not, but it matters. It doesn’t matter how much you ignore your negative friends or co-worker, at a point of life, you’ll too start feeling negative and demotivated. Just because of them.

You’ll too start thinking like them after a certain period of time. So, it’s important to take care of your surroundings and only allow positive people in your life.

I may sound rude to you but you should cut the negative people away from your life and you should choose your friends carefully.

“Stay away from negative people. They have a problem for every solution.”

“Two things scare me. The first is getting hurt. But that’s not nearly as scary as the second, which is losing.” -Lance Armstrong

“Sometimes it’s not that there is no one who loves you, but it is you who doesn’t want to be loved.” -Manish Kumar

Many people especially teenagers can relate to this problem, that they are afraid of being loved or to love someone. Maybe it’s because of their heart-breaking past, or maybe it’s the overthinking about their future. But they feel it difficult or get afraid to love.

Well, however, it may be better in some concern or in some special scenario. But in general, it almost ruins their happiness, communication skills, their behavior and so on. This is because people who often face this problem are so likely to want to live alone and they get used to it.

It’s not a bad thing to live alone, but think about it, how will you going to interact with others if you always live alone.

So, in this post, I will talk about 5 of those major reasons which are forcing you to stay away from love and I will also give some tips to overcome this situation.

Let’s get started:

1. Fear of Heartbreak.

The most common reason that is forcing you to hate love is fear of heartbreak. I know you have seen the worst past and have faced many things. Some may have broken your heart and have left you. But you should ask yourself this one simple question, “are all people the same?”

I mean if you think all are same, then keep it in mind, you too get included in the “all” people.

There are some people who are kind, there are some who are the worst. All you’ve to do is to see the difference between these two. And how can you do it?

“See their actions, not their words.”

Well, anyone can say nice things, but you should see their actions instead of their words.

2. Fear of breaking Trust.

This short 5 letter word is a feeling in itself.

Another most common reason why most people are afraid to love I see in today’s world is, they are afraid that someone will break their trust. Maybe someone has done it in their past that they are afraid of it now, or maybe they are just afraid of getting hurt.

Whatever the reason is, it forces them to stay in fear of love.

Well, so how can one overcome it?

I will not say that you should trust every single person completely and blindly. 
After all, I will never say that you should trust someone blindly. But instead, you should trust those who are trustworthy.

And how can you find such people?

As I have told you in above point, you should notice their action, not their words. If they are making efforts for you, they might be trustworthy.

One more thing, he/she is not your ex or the one who has broken your trust. All are not the same and you should keep it in mind.

3. Overthinking.

Seriously, I have tired of saying it all the time. This is not just a common reason why people are afraid to love, but this is the reason for our countless problems in life.

Overthinking is the art of creating problems that don’t even exist there. 
Nowadays, most people think too much about their future happenings. They try to predict their future and in this process, they end up thinking about those things which will never come into their lives.

Firstly, they start thinking about some small negative things, and then after a time, they end up in a whole different world and create problems that don’t even exist in the real world.

So, how can one stop overthinking?

Here is an article that I have written before How to Stop Overthinking This will surely help you to overcome this situation.

4. Fear of losing someone.

Another reason why most people are afraid of love is they are afraid of losing someone. Well, being abandoned is a common fear among most people. It’s natural that within the excitement of falling in love, you also think about the other side of your relationship, that is losing.

And for many people, this fear is so great that instead of falling in love, they chose to leave and refuse the love.

Well, in my opinions, this isn’t a big problem. I mean if you really think about it, this is kinda natural. I mean we all have a fear of losing things or someone we love. But tell me one thing.

You’re afraid of losing your phone or of breaking it down. But this isn’t mean that you should not even buy a phone.

Think about it and I think this simple thing will surely help you to overcome this reason.

5. Fear of repeating the past.

Most people are afraid to love is because they fear that their past may get repeated. I mean they might have seen something bad in their past and that’s why they don’t wanna repeat it again. And this fear of repeating past is so strong that they don’t wanna love someone or even don’t want to be loved by anyone.

Well, I can understand why you don’t want to repeat that again, but the thing is who said you that the past will repeat? I mean you can’t predict your future unless you’re making it by yourself. And I think you’re not making it in the same way you did before.

You have not trusted the same guy/girl whom you have trusted in the past. So, how you can say that the things will repeat exact same. I mean if things go exact same, then it’s probably your fault, not the one whom you’ve trusted or had faith in.

Think about it.
