One of the worst fears that come to a human mind is fear of losing. It’s a hard feeling to accept. But how hard we try; we can not make someone stick with us forever. Sooner or later something drastic is bound to happen. If not any misunderstanding or personal problem then the eventual reality of death is sure to part our ways with our loved ones. Death is the ultimate truth that can not be negated or denied. So how should we approach it? Isn’t it as simple as accepting it much beforehand and create a mindset that will allow us to remain our balance even during worst of conditions.

 

Realizing that parting is imminent opens another stage towards acceptance of this bitter reality. At the same time, it also gives us a chance to think positively. Knowing that end is nearer so why not make the relationship more beautiful and special. We can always travel that extra yard to make other persons feel special. It could just be a simple visit or a phone call or even a letter or personal e-mail. We don’t need to do magic to make other feel good. The basic and simple things are most endearing one. Remember, when a relationship was formed it was because of the fact that both sides found some similarities and goodness in each other. There were no flashy signs of affection or sky didn’t thunder when you formed a particular relationship. Relationship grows out of mutual respect, admiration and understanding. So let’s just keep these facts in mind and make our relationships special without any fear of losing them.

Life never turns out the way we plan. In fact it always takes a different route. Sometimes, We don’t like the way life turns out because we feel sad, depressed and devastated when things turn out differently. But then what’s the meaning of life that takes place as per our plans. Then life will be termed as repetitive and predictable. We human thrive on unpredictability and sudden changes witnessed in life give us the real fun. So instead of moaning and cribbing out the life, lets just chant ‘carry on’ even when things are not exactly very rosy and colorful. It’s always easier to give up but it’s always a sign of strength when we stand up and carry on. Let’s share this fascinating poem that tells us the virtue of carrying on even during adverse conditions.

 

Carry On!!

 

It’s easy to fight when everything’s right,

And you’re mad with the thrill and the glory;

It’s easy to cheer when victory’s near,

And wallow in fields that are gory.

It’s a different song when everything’s wrong.

When you’re feeling infernally mortal;

When it’s ten against one, and hope there is none,

Buck up, little soldier, and chortle:

 

Carry on! Carry on!

There isn’t much punch in your blow.

You’re glaring and staring and hitting out blind;

You’re muddy and bloody, but never mind.

Carry on! Carry on!

You haven’t the ghost of a show.

It’s looking like death, but while you’ve a breath,

Carry on, my son! Carry on!

 

And so in the strife of the battle of life

It’s easy to fight when you’re winning;

It’s easy to slave, and starve and be brave,

When the dawn of success is beginning.

But the man who can meet despair and defeat

With a cheer, there’s a man of God’s choosing;

The man who can fight to Heaven’s own height

Is the man who can fight when he’s losing.

 

Carry on! Carry on!

Things never were looming so black.

But show that you haven’t a cowardly streak,

And though you’re unlucky you never are weak.

Carry on! Carry on!

Brace up for another attack.

It’s looking like hell, but – you never can tell;

Carry on, old man! Carry on!

 

There are some who drift out in the deserts of doubt,

And some who in brutishness wallow;

There are others, I know, who in piety go

Because of a Heaven to follow.

But to labor with zest, and to give of your best,

For the sweetness and joy of the giving;

To help folks along with a hand and a song;

Why, there’s the real sunshine of living.

 

Carry on! Carry on!

Fight the good fight and true;

Believe in you mission, greet life with a cheer;

There’s big work to do, and that’s why you are here.

Carry on! Carry on!

Let the world be the better for you;

And at last when you die, let this be your cry:

Carry on, my soul! Carry on!

Inspiration for Self-confidence

Personality grooming is a very important concept in current times. Often, how we present ourselves, how we talk or even how we stand makes all the difference in giving a clue of our personalities. One must take care of his posture. People tend to observe how you stand, how you walk and stand etc. So one should make sure to stand upright, walk straight with eyes looking firmly ahead and chest puffed up slightly. One should make sure not to slump his shoulders while walking. Slouching is not a good indication so stand up straight.

 

Taking care of health is very important for any human being. A healthy person appears more confident and positive. One should make sure not to abuse his body by indulging in drugs, alcohol or smoking. Also unhealthy foods should be avoided. Proper exercise regimen is very helpful in enhancing self confidence and self –esteem. When you are healthy, you look good and that result in getting compliments and finally enhanced self-belief.

 

Eye contact is very important in our day to day lives. Whenever we talk to people, we should always focus on making eye contacts. That shows self confidence as well as sincerity. It’s always recommended to gaze into the person’s eyes while making conversations. However, there is a catch. Just don’t keep staring at the other person. Shifting your gaze occasionally then again making eye contact is a better idea.  This makes one appear interested, confident and sincere as well.
