Self-compassion can help you achieve success

Being kind to yourself may sound like something out of a nursery school.

Even cynics, though, should value self-compassion – especially if they wish to be resilient.

Consider the last time you failed or made a critical error.

Do you still blush with embarrassment and chastise yourself for being so dumb or selfish?

Or do you realise that making mistakes is a natural aspect of being human and attempt to speak to yourself with care and tenderness?

For many people, the harshest judgmental answers come naturally.

Indeed, we may even take satisfaction in being harsh on ourselves as a sign of our desire and determination to be our best selves.

However, a wealth of studies reveals that self-criticism frequently backfires – and in a poor way.

It can encourage procrastination and make us less able to attain our goals in the future, in addition to increasing our unhappiness and stress levels.

Instead of chastising ourselves, we should exercise self-compassion: greater forgiveness of our mistakes, as well as a conscious effort to care for ourselves at moments of disappointment or embarrassment.

Kristin Neff is an associate professor of educational psychology at the University of Texas at Austin and one of the researchers behind this study.

Neff says, “Most of us have a terrific buddy in our lives who is kind of unconditionally supportive. Self-compassion is the ability to be that same loving, supportive friend to oneself.”

If you are a cynic, you may be put off by the idea at first. Nonetheless, scientific data suggests that it can boost our emotional resilience as well as our health, wellness, and productivity.

Importantly, it enables us to learn from the mistakes that led to our dissatisfaction in the first place.

Why you should launch your startup in 2022 – Towards A Better Life

Is launching a startup in 2022 your New Year resolution, but you are hesitant? This article contains several reasons for you to start your own business next year. You may desire to establish your own business for a variety of reasons, such as capitalising on an opportunity or meeting a need in your community.

Towards A Better Life is committed to motivating entrepreneurs and providing you with the resources and know-how you need to succeed. And so we’ve created a list of reasons why you should start your own business below.

Here’s why you should launch your startup in 2022.

Make More Money: There’s no denying the fact that money is important. Unless you work on commission, your full-time income is most certainly limited. When you establish your own business, you have complete control over how much money you make. As a business owner, there is no pay ceiling. You can always make more money and grow your company.

Discover Your Purpose: Have you ever felt like you don’t have a purpose at work? Starting a business can provide wonderful meaning and purpose to your life—this is not the same as becoming a workaholic. When you discover your mission and create a business around it, you are no longer working; instead, you are fulfilling a dream. Meaning is created when freedom, pride, enthusiasm, and commitment come together to form a sense of purpose, motivation, and overwhelming worth. We can all agree that living a meaningful life is a good conclusion. And it doesn’t have to be confined to a daydream.

Control Your Schedule: When you start your own business, you may be as flexible as you want with your schedule. It’s up to you whether you want to sleep in, stay up late, work half days, or take off every Friday. The early stages of your firm will be hectic, but as you grow and learn to delegate, you’ll find yourself with more free time. You may like to immerse yourself in your work and pour your heart and soul into it; this is also possible.You have complete control over your schedule.

I pray to the One Almighty God to bless all my readers and followers with Peace, Health (no more Covid-19 or Omicron), Wealth and all the other good things of life in 2022 and beyond.

Construction workers, including the people who lay bricks while a buildingis being built, are the ones who put in all the hard work and even risk their lives to build our homes. These workers face various hazards due to which their risk of injury or death increases. Falling from height is one of the many risks that construction workers face while building our houses.

But, their work has been largely unrecognized. That was until recently when a video showing the skills of a man who balances multiple bricks on his head at the same time went viral. In fact, Chairman of Mahindra Group, Anand Mahindra, has commended the man for what he does and urged to stop the risky work done by such laborers.

The undated video shows a laborer take bricks an pile them up on his head simultaneously. It seems that the video is from a Indian construction site.

While sharing it on Twitter, Anand Mahindra, commended the laborer for the unique skill that he possesses. Mr Mahindra tweeted, “No one shouldhave to do such risky manual labour. But you have to admire this man for turning his drudgery into an into an art form. Does anyone know where this isfrom? Can his employers provide and also recognise his higherorder skills?”

But, after Mr Anand posted the video on Twitter, it has become viral. The video received many comments, with many netizens agreeing that risky jobs such as this needs to be stopped.But, a few of the people who commented said they were displeased with automation, as this could lead the workers to lose their jobs.

However, the man in the video is not the only laborer or mason who is taking such a risk to provide for their families, while they help build our houses.

One of the netizens said in his comment, : “This is the work that many poor people do in India to feed their families. Prime Minister Narendra Modi has been making the same promise, since the last three years, while speaking to the public. In his 2019 public address on Independence Day , the PM had said that Rs. 100 lac crore will be spent for the development of modern infrastructure. Modi has been repeating the promise ever since. But, whereis the money?.”
