NEXT is more than a word, it is an emotion. I used to think I had to know ALL the answers, to have control over everything in my life, to know why happened what happened to reinstate lost peace of mind. The process of recovering from a setback is character-building and will leave you better equipped to tackle the next challenge. This perspective will get you out of anything, and will make you say a loud NEXT.
Everyday is a brand-new page in the book of your life. Carrying negativity from prior experiences will not serve any purpose. As hard as it may seem in the beginning, you’ll be surprised how fast things will fall into places again as you accept situations you ended up in. Embrace the unknown. Too often we’re unconsciously rejecting other opportunities by habit. Stop making assumptions on the basis of what happened, everything is not the same. Learn to say Next!
You can’t have a new victory until you close your current battle. This one is my toxic habit, I do not accept defeat even when it is clear that the battle is over without me being the victor. Every new beginning comes from some other beginning’s end. Let go, move on, say Next.
NEXT | gather the courage
Muster courage to talk to somebody, a friend or a stranger, does not matter. Venting out thoughts purges your system, detoxify as often as you can. Also, it will give you a fresh perspective to see things differently. Let the others be the triggers of your change. Make a new plan, set the milestones, and stick to it. Reinventing yourself every once in a while will keep you fresh.
The seven cardinal rules of life goes as follows:- Make peace with your past, what others think of you is none of your business, time heals almost everything, no one is the reason for your own happiness, don’t make comparisons, stop overthinking, smile, and learn to focus on NEXT!
Don’t get hung up on your views of how things “should” be because you will miss out on learning how they really are. – Ray Dalio
