Dear Blog viewers,
“Happy are those who dream dreams and are paying the price to make them come true”. This is really very true that we have to pay the price of happiness. Though happiness is the relative term but it comes from the mental satisfaction by focusing on the desirable tasks. But to avoid any kind of mistakes, we need to be mentally strong enough to challenge anything in any atmosphere of life. Challenging self is the best revenge than anything else on this universe. We need to be the best competitor of ourselves. The main purpose of this topic is to remind all to challenge them and their potentials than any one’s on this self.“I do not try to dance better than anyone else. I only try to dance better than myself.” – Mikhail Baryshnikov.The key message here is ‘you are your only competition’. By comparing ourselves with others, we can only be better by the person we compare ourselves with. However, if we compete with ourselves, we will achieve our true potential. It is better to compete with self than anyone else on this world. If we always challenge ourself, we can move ahead and better our own capability than the before. It is necessary on our part to review our past and present performance effectively and efficiently to make our future colourful and prosperous. Our inability to exercise our psychological strength is one of the great human failings of life. It not only leads to ongoing difficulties, but can also lead to tragedy. The power of the mind is an amazing thing. It is said that we only ever tap into about 10% of our mental capabilities. The state of the mind will determine the outcome of every experience. If you begin the race thinking about all of the negative things that could happen…they will. But on the flipside, if your mind is ready to get through any experience, it will. When your mind and body work together as a team your limits become distant and every experience becomes a part of the journey.I always put my life experience in the blog which makes the blog viewers more comfortable and interested.When I was recruited by Thyrocare technologies limited, Navimumbai, I got the offer to work in Mumbai itself, though I had applied for Marketing executive in Odisha. It was absolutely first time for me to move from BBSR to one of the best metro of India Mumbai. But I faced so many difficulties in office as well as in outside but in the passage of time ,I started enhancing my mental strength to cope up the situations.Thre are also so many bitter experiences in Mumbai which I don’t like to mention.
The first step in becoming a more mentally strong racer is to lay the groundwork, the foundation. Tell your mind going into the experience that anything can happen. Good and bad, anything can happen. Roll with the change. Flat tires, sick teammates, lost maps, lost people, broken gear, sticker bushes, hypothermia…it can and will happen. If the mind is prepared for anything, it will graciously accept anything that crosses its path. If the mind is so focused on reaching the finish without adversity, the first glimpse of a wrong turn will set it on a negative downspin taking you and your teammates with it.
Prepare your mind for everything. Keep it open to the experience. When adversity strikes, stay calm and focus on solving the right problem. I can cite the best example is that my hospitalization in Navi Mumbai. I was advised by the local doctor that I m suffering from typhoid and I need immediate admission in hospital to get recovery.Infact, it is true that my friends have helped me like anything but one of the most interesting thing is that I did not inform this to parents after having a great analysis on the fact.The simple fact was that they would loose their patience as I am the only son of my parents.Keeping a positive mind will also help with your reactionary skills. You can't control what happens on the course but, you can control how you react to every situation.Adventure racing challenges your body and mind. Train your mind to teach the body. You will reach new heights and go beyond your limits.
The price of success … Dedication, hard work, and an unremitting devotion to the things you want by strengthening the mental strength and right attitude.
So friends, “Be mightier than the mightiest of self”.
