What I Learned today (02/04/21) - Is it possible to get positivity from a boring environment?

Be Positive... Stay Positive... We have heard these words almost from every positivity blogs, videos and speeches. 

And whenever we read, watch those articles, we have a gush feeling but when we turn to reality that feeling fade.

While seeing a pile of papers at our desk or long meetings in our calendar or thinking about the repetitive work, we feel drained and wonder, how to be positive in a boring day life.

But what if someone tells you that you can be actually be positive and also change that boring life into an enthusiastic one, do you believe?

It is what I learned today. I have come across a tweet about getting a targeted amount of followers. 

What is new in it? Won't everyone in social media is thriving for the same? 

Everyone tries to become popular, but only few masters it. The tweet I have read is about how the person is planning to gain followers, an open strategy he tweeted. 

If you are in social media and started with zero (if you are not a popular person), you know the struggle of getting even first 100 followers. But his strategy is getting 20k followers in around 6 months time span. It is one of the boring task, without retweets, likes but continuously tweeting. It needs effort and consistency.

When I read his tweet, I thought how boring it would be at the starting. But what makes a person to attempt that boring task without any hesitation or procrastination? 

And I linked our daily boring life with that task. Why I have to do a boring task daily? How to get motivation out of a boring task? Results. 

If I do a task without a plan or goal, it becomes boring. If I link it with my passion or result, it becomes part of my goal. Am I not motivated to work for my goal? - An Entrepreneur way of seeing things.

Or we can have another perspective - a kid mentality. A better example will be of a school kid. A typical school day will be the most boring task. But have you ever seen a kid seeing tired at the end of school? The thought of 'Done for the day in school' and 'Evening play time or show time' gives much enthusiasm to a kid. 

Compare yourself to a kid or an entrepreneur.  

I can clear the pile of papers or attend the meetings with joy, If they are part of my goal and If I am going to achieve something for my passion out of them. - An Entrepreneur Mindset.

I can clear these pile of papers or complete these meetings as soon as possible , So I can have time on my own to pursue my interest or follow my dreams. - A School kid mindset. 

I know, again I am coming to the point that everything is in our mindset, but wouldn't it true? 

We are responsible for our mindset, and we can make it the way we want, either by entrepreneur mindset or school kid mindset. As long as we think positive and stay positive, our life will be awesome.

What I Learned today (07/04/21) - What are the stages in developing a skill?

Yesterday I learned about How and Where to start in Personal Development . As a continuation, today I learned the common 4 stages in developing our-self in any skill we need to improve. What are those common 4 Stages? These 4 stages are called "Four Stages of Competence" or "Conscious Competence learning model" . Lets see the four stages 1. First Stage - Unconscious Incompetence In this stage, we don't have an idea about the skill or we don't know where we stand. For example, If you want to learn and play football, at first you don't know your skill levels untill you try to play. This level is called Unconscious Incompetent.  The person who wants to develop a skill, unaware about their level or unconsciously incompetent in that skill. Most people, due to fear of failure , reside in this stage without trying. To break it, all we need to do is, "DO IT NOW" attitude. 2. Second Stage - Conscious Incompetence We have tried and we have some knowle

So I am planning to learn something new everyday and share it with you all.  What I learned today? I started reading the book 'The Psychology of Money' (Affiliate link) by Morgan Housel. In the beginning of the book, there is a comparison between two men.  First one, 'Ronald Read' who was a Gas station attendant and Janitor for a long period of time but using tiny savings, made a fortune of $8 million . On the other hand, 'Richard Fuscone' - a Harvard MBA, Vice Chairman of a finance institute, went broke in his late years. I am always an avid reader of self development books. But this story changed something in my perception . I am  not gonna dive into who's policy is right a
