Its not time to give up, its time to put your best foot forward

There are times when you start to lose the battle with your mind… demotivation kicks in, and you move from a positive person to a totally negative person. The person inside you, who used to see the positive side of everything, starts to vanish. Every day starts to become a mirror image of the previous day; no memories to differentiate between the days, no achievements to relish, no sense of purpose…. And slowly you start to lose sense of time. Laziness becomes your second name. You start churning out excuses to keep doing what you are doing, even though it yields no results. You start to blame everything else other than you for your situation, and everyday you start to take small steps towards oblivion.

But you can sense that there is someone inside you who is crying out for help, but that voice is muzzled, and he is struggling to be heard. Someone inside you is trying to re-assure you that you can still salvage your life. That you can still put your life back on track, and that you haven’t strayed too far… But negativity can be overwhelming, tiredness numbing, and laziness overshadowing every aspect of life. Creativity starts to slip away, books induce diarrhea, consuming others pointless social life on internet becomes your daily dose of entertainment, and PUBG become your best friend.

You weigh yourself and you realize you have weight issues. You start to lose breath walking 200 meters to office, you start to sweat like a pig climbing stairs, probably smell like one too. The most positive person who used to live within you seems to have vanished from your life, he is nowhere to be found. The person within you who wanted to achieve something in life, who wanted to be someone, who had goals, who had something to work towards; that person is running away from you at the speed of light. And you realize that you have to catch up… that you need to change your life.

At some point in time you realize that, it’s not the people around you who is putting you down, it’s you yourself facilitating it. Otherwise how can anyone control your mind without you letting them do so?. Why let the world put their garbage in the pristine garden of your mind?. Probably it’s time to shut the gate to the garden of your mind, to keep the garbage dumpers at bay, because you cannot afford to let people ruin your mind with their garbage.

It’s time to stop the bad vibe, and start the fight for change. And take the fight to the root of the problem. It’s time to stop whining and complaining, and take control of your life and destiny. It’s time to start dreaming again. It’s time to get back to the drawing board, to draw up a new life. A life that is worthy of your limitless potential. Its time to set goals, and work harder than ever to get closer to it. It’s time to fill every day, every hour, and every minute, with purpose, enthusiasm, and happiness. It’s time to prove the negative side in you wrong, prove the naysayers wrong. Let people bet against you and lose. Show them you are the underdog who is out there to win the game – the game of life.

Life will knock you down, not once; but over and over again. When that happens, you need to get back up on your feet, and throw your best punches back at it. Blow after blow, fall after fall, you have to get back up, and put up a fight. Don’t accept failure, it doesn’t suit anyone. You build this life so far on your own, brick by brick, giving it your sweat and blood. What you are today is the result of your own hard-work. You are self made, it’s no time to give up that title. It’s a title to retain forever, keep it, and never lose it, ever…

Today should be the day you mourn the death of the negative person in you, tomorrow should be a new dawn, when you herald the comeback of the champion…YOUR BEST SELF.
