Clumsy Me – Favorite Spot to Study

Whenever I remember my engineering days there is one memory that makes me laugh about me being Clumsy during exam days. There was one corner in our 2BHK flat that was my favorite corner to study. It was like all my conscious used to come on that spot. And even studying sitting on that spot I never scored good in my exams. Hahahahah!

But it was my lucky spot. My little sister always made sure to disturb me with that spot. She always knew that it’s my study time and I am going to sit on that spot but before I could go and sit, she used jump on that spot and pretended to study.

With this behavior of her I fought with her a lot. The funny part was that nobody at home supported me. Nobody could understand the tension of Engineering exams. In three days one had to complete the entire subject. I have already wrote a post mentioning that I still get panic attack in my dreams about my stress over engineering exams.

I have blamed my sister for not scoring good marks in my exams. Now that I have quit my job, whenever I think about that time I laugh. The little hard work done in my engineering days is not helping me now! Hahahha!


Flatter Yourself! – Can be Good?

“The Story You Tell is The Basis of Your Life.” – Abraham Hicks

You always get to know when someone is trying to flatter you. You don’t feel good when someone tells sweet things only for their benefits.

But what if you flatter yourself? What if you tell good things to yourself and actually mean it? Can it be a good thing?

When we train our minds to think and talk only about good things, good things happen to us.

Abraham Hicks says that tell your life story the way you want it to be and not the way it is right now. So if you want to be a successful person and are still in the process, don’t talk about the struggle, talk about being successful.

Sharing below few quotes by Abraham Hicks –

Start telling a better-feeling story about the things that are important to you. Do not write your story like a factual documentary, weighing all the pros and cons of your experience, but instead tell the uplifting, fanciful, magical story of the wonder of your own life and watch what happens.

You are the creator of your experience because you’re the teller of your story. And you can tell your story because of what you are observing, or you can tell your story because of what you desire.

You can say things like: Only good things come to me… I’ll figure it out as I go along… Every time you tell your BETTER_FEELING story, you will feel better, and the details of your life will improve. The better it gets, the better it gets.

Write a Story – Complete the Unfinished Lines

7 Unfinished Phrases!

Once Upon a Time …
And Everyday …
Until One Day …
Because of This …
Because of This …
Until Finally …
And Ever Since That Day …

Improv (improvisation) is a way of life. It teaches you life lessons – listening, saying Yes And, responding to others and not reacting and the lessons continue. I would recommend everyone to go for Improv classes. If you are not aware about Improv and what exactly it is, watch the US TV show “Whose Line Is It Anyway”.

I have done 3 levels of Improv in Mumbai. The games you play in the class help you come out of your comfort zone. You have to be spontaneous and in the moment.

One of my favorite games is to tell a story with above 7 unfinished starting phrases.

This game is played in a circle. So you have to pay close attention to what’s going on to make a good story. 7 people will complete one story.

You can also play this game alone but on one condition that you don’t give yourself time to think. When you don’t think much it’s more fun.

Write your story with above mentioned unfinished phrases in the comment and let’s see who scores maximum likes. Be quick and no cheating.

For example – the story can be
Once upon a time … There was a king named George who was blind.
And everyday … In the morning he used to go to the temple to pray to get his vision back.
Until one day … He forgot to go the temple and slept till the noon.
Because of this … The God he used to pray got very angry and made me bald.
Because of this … The queen left the king and took away his son with her.
Until finally … The king realized there is no reason for him to be alive and committed suicide.
And ever since that day … The kingdom for King George is looking for a new King. Someone please go to Gotham and be the king.

Waiting for your story!
