Let’s get winning

“At the end of your life, you will never regret not having passed one more test, not winning one more verdict or not closing one more deal. You will regret time not spent with a husband, a friend, a child, or a parent.” - Barbara Bush.

For all those men and women who are addicted to winning only in the professional front, take a break and look back to ponder if you are a winner at your own home too. We are so engrossed in pursuit of success that we leave out our near and dear ones (un)knowingly. And we forget for whom we are actually toiling so hard and what are we trying to prove.

Ever wondered a teacher’s child could fail an examination and a doctor’s kid could suffer from a deadly disease. In this case, the teacher could be successful in teaching as a profession and the doctor in curing diseases but they lose in the family affair. It’s not just sheer negligence; it’s the thirst for winning that becomes the only thing in the profession. To be successful in just one field is so easy by virtue of talent, to be successful in all fronts takes character. Optimism- shifts the outlook into mental wins. Pessimism and loss are wired for every act opposite to a calmer life. It all starts within you rather than in others.

To rewire from anxious to calm and adding chemicals and electricity for new paths to a calmer life, listed down are the perspectives for winning brainpower-

1. Invent one refreshing solution to replace a routine that leaves you bored or in a rut.

2. Uplift your work area with natural lighting.
3. Thank a cranky worker for even a small accomplishment.
4. Give an offender the gift of forgiveness, by letting go of a grudge.
5. Propose winning alternatives to an observed annoying habit.
6. Act as the person you want others to see in you, and that you'll become.
7. Vary your background sounds and add music for more motivating outlooks.
8. Stir curiosity and engage others by tapping into their interests.
9. Sleep well in order to perceive your world well.
10. Research and open mentally to new and different ideas daily.
11. Change on regular basis.
12. Diversify your talent development to engage new perspectives.
13. Create rather than criticize.
