Category: Common Habits & Solutions


How many times have you failed a subject? Once, twice or never? Of course, many of you who haven’t failed a subject would be thinking that it’s so bad to fail a subject – Bad feelings, insult, loosing friends, bad looks etc.

But is it really that bad?

I just gave my Mathematics exam yesterday, and I’m sure that I’m gonna fail. Almost 1/4th of the class is going to fail. I spent the whole day yesterday thinking about it (and other stuff), and felt really, really bad.

I had failed in mathematics once when I was 7th grade, but that was worse than the feeling that I’m feeling now.

Anyways, but how bad can it get? I would feel bad, I would study more, enthusiastically, and then score well (or may be excellent).

So what I’ve learnt from this mistake of mine? I’m improving on it. Sure, I will get bad looks, some bad words from the teacher, some from friends, and some from my mother (maybe).

But, if you see at the end of the day, I’m improving. That’s what mistakes teach you – To learn from them and not (instead of never) commit them again. You CAN commit the same mistake again and again, it’s okay to do that (contradictory to what many people will tell you). The thing is, you should follow your heart.

I’m already feeling like studying mathematics, not from the fear of failing again, but because I really feel like. Yea, maybe because of fear, but do I really care? I’m feeling to do that, and I will do that. No one can stop me from doing that except me myself.

So, committing mistakes is good, but actually awesome, as it improves us. Fools at schools and colleges (who unfortunately call themselves experts) will tell you that it’s pathetic to fail. But really, believe me, it’s awesome.

Share your comments below on how you committed mistakes and what you learnt from them. Remember, life is supposed to be fun (by Abraham Hicks) and there’s no fun if you don’t fail a couple of times. That’s life.

Those who don’t fail will always fear them; those who fail will love them eventually, because they will know that it’s awesome!

Do Something!

So today what happened was, I was just always, reading some blogs and tweeting and facebooking. But I had a head ache while I did this. So I decided to have an afternoon nap. Well, it didn’t quite turn up as effective – I turned on my iPod, and listened to my favorite tracks… Then as I took a look at the clock, it was almost 5 PM. Now, in my family, we have an evening coffee at about 5.30 roughly. So you know, I didn’t quite sleep, and I had that head ache still.

So I decided to turn off my iPod, try to sleep for at least 30 minutes. I did that, well not that kind of a nap, but yeah, a small one, until my mother knocked my bedroom’s door for the coffee. I woke up, went to have coffee, and watched some TV. And, I had that head ache as well.

So till 7 I watched news continuously (yeah I like journalism!), and still my head ache didn’t go. But, as you may know that I am complete internet junkie, I decided to come online. Then, I again checked my Google Reader for some new blog posts, and I had almost 30 to read. I closed it, and went to IndiBlogger forums. There I saw a website on how to improve my Google Page Rank. I check it out, and I was completely astonished! It was just a one page website, and had about 10 tips on the topic. I got hooked, and decided to add them on my blog, and voila! As I did that, my head ache was gone!

Well, yes, I could have mediated for some while. But actually I forgot. So, I did that improvements on my blog, and everything was fine. I went back to my Google Reader, read everything, and I am here, writing this post!

Why it works?

What I want to highlight is that, when you do some work it really helps you take your mind off things. And by work, I don’t mean any silly crap that today’s world has named “work”; I mean something that you feel to do. You are really inspired to do, and want to do that. And you love doing that as well. That’s how our mind works, what we like, we take action on it. What we don’t like, our body takes action on it.

It can be anything you come across. Remember here, don’t try to do stuff that you ‘like’ on a normal basis, because you think it will help. By doing this you are again forcing your body to do such crap to you. So it’s better that you just “let go” of everything. Seriously, leave everything on nature, don’t feel any responsibility on yourself, and things will automatically pop up that you will like. There’s no need to get to forced action. What you need is not that, you need inspired action, which is inspired by something you can’t even think of (and don’t try doing that).

Hope it helps you, and if it does, then please post your views on this via comments.

When You Know the best in you!

2100765948_be35d82f63[tweetmeme source=”manav_dhiman”]

Most people (including me) tell his/her friends how to be good to others, behave goodly, say right things at right times, and lots of other things. And sometimes people say the same to you. That’s when you don’t like it. You tend to think “Who is he to tell me what to do or what not to do!”. But when you say the same to others then you feel proud and be like normal. But most people don’t understand is that, when you tell anyone to not be like that but be like that, he/she may not like as you do when someone tells you.

Have you told this? YES!

You might have told this to several people in your life, you can’t even recall it. Because it has now become your habit. You tell, you forget. But they hear you, but not forget. That’s the human mentality. And when this happens, there is always a chance to loose a good friend. And you don’t want that to happen, do you? So here comes Manav to the rescue! 🙂

Why do we say like this?

We say this because we don’t like a particular habit of that person and we don’t want him/her to continue this. And at the same time you don’t really wanna stop talking to that person because you love him. So the human mind says that you have to tell him/her to stop. That is the human brain working!

How to get rid of this?

Many people ask me this when I tell them about it. So you don’t wanna hurt that particular friend of yours Here’s your way out of this! Just don’t tell him anything! Yes, you don’t have to tell him anything! You see, every human in this world know the best they can do. The thing is they don’t do it! But once, they realize this is bad, they’ll stop doing that. So what you gotta do is, just sit back and let him/her do anything he/she wants! Your work is just to go on with the conversation. And you’ll see that you’ve become more comfortable with that person! This had worked for me and many of my friends, and now it’s gonna work for you!

Hope you liked this tip! If you do then comment! And if you have anything to say, or ask again just comment on this post!

CHEERS!
