It’s calm under the waves in the blue of my oblivion.
¬† – Fiona Apple¬†
Almost all our lives, we sit back and bottle up our emotions in the fear of being judged. Calmness and serenity has driven far away from us. Nature’s true wonders have turned into horrendous elements which affect us, as human beings. What for? Who for? Just if we ever knew the exact answers. The whole idea of this article might sound very unusual to a few, but I believe it is the most important thing to first keep yourself happy and content, and then others. Don’t try to be pizza ya, please yourself, than others. It’s not a wishful thinking, just a state of mind. Only mental calm, which leads to clarity of mind, will you and I, and as a consequence, everyone towards that even keel where we can all benefit from the abundance that this life offers to us.
The more control you have over your mind and emotions, the better you perform in all fields of life. As buttery as it sounds, it kills all illusionative aspects once you start being the master of your mind, than a slave. It’s literally a golden truth to ponder upon. I think intermittent stressful events are probably what keeps the brain more alert, and you perform better when you are alert. As the human brain evolved and increased in complexity, we‚Äôve developed the ability to worry and perseverate on events, which creates frequent experiences of prolonged stress. Besides increasing your risk of heart disease, depression, and obesity, stress decreases your cognitive performance. Fortunately, though, unless a lion is chasing you, the bulk of your stress is subjective and under your control.
Where do you stand? And if it’s a hole, here’s what’s gonna save you from falling.
A) Control over self joy
Emotionally smart people never let any individual hold a sole control over their happiness. Your opinion will not be disrespected, but at the same time, it will not be the only opinion on the list. Content will arise not by comparing, but by knowing your self worth and standing for yourself.
B) Forgiving, not forgetting
Be quick to forgive, but never forget. Let go and move on, for yourself than the other person. Because that requires courage, and God was generous enough to put equal ounces of every element in each individual. Emotionally intelligent people are unwilling to be bogged down unnecessarily by others‚Äô mistakes, so they let them go quickly and are assertive in protecting themselves from future harm.
C) Never prioritise perfection
The smart won‚Äôt set perfection as their target because they know it doesn‚Äôt exist. As I always say, without imperfections, you and I wouldn’t exist. Instead of nagging yourself on doubt of a failure, fail and walk towards success with tons of experienced to laugh upon in future, within success.
The frustration and pressure will never stop building, but it is you who have to save yourself from being axed, and ace the situation.¬†
