Now success is a very relative term. A writer who dreams of being successful may be of the opinion that until his/her book makes waves in the market and is able to sell out within a few weeks of publication, he/she hasn’t succeeded. Or perhaps another writer whose idea of success is to make life-changing impacts with the little readers his/her book can reach. Success is only measurable against the standard which we have set for ourselves. If what I want is to be a stay at home mom, then success will only find me on that level. But if what I want is to be the among Forbes’ top 100 most influential women in the world, then I have by myself raised the bar for which I will have to run with till the day I attend my dream. So it is safe to say while success may have started off as a journey, it comes to an end at a destination, except of course our success story is operations of some sort. … More What gives fulfillment?
“I don’t want to be at the mercy of my emotions. I want to use them, to enjoy them, and to dominate them.” ―Oscar Wilde
Someone sent a prayer today and top on that list was something around emotional stability. It got me thinking. I didn’t even know that could be a serious enough subject to pray about. But I guess it goes far in telling the consequence of our emotions in our daily activities, in our thoughts, in decision making and how things will evolve for us if we are unable to control our emotions.
Someone identifies eight things emotionally stable people don’t do. So if you’re sure you’ve got your emotions in control and not the other way round, check yourself and be sure you don’t fall into any of the below.
1.They don’t take other people’s behavior personally– It’s easy to feel unloved and unwanted when people aren’t able to communicate and connect with you in the way you expect. Although it might take a while not to internalize that disconnection as a reflection on your worth, truth is, the way other people behave and function is not about you. Most people are so caught up in their own problems, responsibilities and struggles, that the thought of asking you how you’re doing doesn’t even cross their mind. They aren’t being mean or uncaring – they’re just busy. You might term it self-centered and you wouldn’t be wrong. The sooner you realize it’s not evidence of some fundamental flaw on your part, the better you are able to function better without feeling unloved. Some people are just not good at looking beyond their own egocentric bubble. But the fact that you are – that despite the darkness you feel, you have the ability to share your love and light with others – is an incredible strength.
