3. Share your Stories:

You have to share your childhood stories which you heard from your grandparents because nowadays I am not sure still how many elderly people are doing this or in other words not sure how many of them are ready to hear from them.

4. Watch and Listen Carefully:

You have to keep a track of your child’s outdoor activities. What activities they are doing and what they are talking about often. Encourage those activities and build on them. Try to find out their inner talents and lead them to grow in that field. Finding the inner talents of a kid is very important for parents because many of them are not allowing them to explore and dumping them to do another activity. Many Parents are doing this mistake, try to find out what your child is capable of. Every kid will be capable of something, finding that one is the toughest part here.

5. Sculpt:

You have to provide a chance to your children to move and create, it’s like you are sculpting their brains. Play fosters connections and prunes. As kids already knew to sculpt sand and snow, they will sculpt their future.

6. Safety:

Every parents major concern is safety, that’s why most of them are not allowing their children to play outside. Just organize a play-date which really is about playing.

5 Ways to Get your Emotions under Control:

1. Realize the Situation:

Sometimes you need to avoid some circumstances which triggered unwanted emotions. When you know that you will most likely get angry when you are in a hurry, then don’t extend the things till the last minute. Try to avoid that situation to happen. Leave the place before 10 minutes or reach office before the actual time you need to and you won’t be bothered so much in the traffic.

2. Change the Situation:

The Emotion where everyone is trying to reduce is the disappointment. You are always expecting something, for example you like to serve “perfect meal” to friends and family, but when something goes wrong and at the end only huge disappointment remains. You try to modify the situation by finding the best recipes which is within your range of ability.

3. Attentional focus:

Let’s assume a situation where you constantly feel inferior to the people around you who looks great. For example, when you are at the gym, you notice the regulars on weight machines who lift three times as much as you can. You will feel low and can’t help but watch with envy and wonder at what they are able to do. You should change your focus from them to your fellow gym rats who will help you feel more confident about your abilities. Just focus on what you are doing and eventually you will gain some strength you desire.

4. Changing your thoughts:

Deepest emotions are beliefs which drive them to the core. You feel low or sad when you believe you have lost something. By having a second thoughts you may not be able to change the situation but at least you could change the way you believe the situation is affecting you.

5. Change your response:

If everything goes wrong and you can’t able to avoid just modify your focus or change your thoughts on the alternate response. The final motto is to realize the situation accordingly and get control of your response. In some situation, you might leave some unwanted words, you should see the situation from other side, later you will realize how you reacted in the situation and the next second your mind will say you could have reacted in a different way. Similarly, when you can’t stop laughing when everyone looks serious, gather your inner resources and try to change your facial expression.

Don’t Give up | Five Secret Mantras which Leads you to Success

Why do we call “Failure Leads to Success”, for most of the people failure is a scary word. After years of conditioning by parents, education system and teachers, they have taught that failure is the one which needs to be avoided and in all your works no failure should be there. If there is any failure, then we feel low and some feel like their life is done.

Don’t Give up | Five Secret Mantras which Leads you to Success
Don’t Give up | Five Secret Mantras which Leads you to Success

The environmental truth is that failure is inevitable and at the end without any doubt if you keep on trying, failure will lead to success. For example, when you take the best people in all respective fields, at the beginning they would have faced n-number of failures. Bill Gates is one of the richest man in the world, but at the beginning when he tried to start a company, it was a huge loss. Famous author Steven King’s popular novel, Carrie, was rejected more than 30 times before it got published.

When you see every successful person, there will be a failure story within him. Just they all learnt from their mistakes in failures and used them as a key to the success.  

Listed out the five ways where you can lead your failure to success:

Learn from the Mistakes:

Mistakes is the precious and gifted opportunity to learn something new in depth with the work you have done. The least it teaches you not to repeat the same mistake and never be afraid of making them. Till you reach your success, there will be more failures and mistakes than you will ever remember, but if you take it as a lesson from each mistakes and you will get more wisdom who never dares anything will.

Failure teach where you stand at your work:

Knowing about yourself is the important factor in achieving success. Few things teach about ourselves, like where you stand at the work you are doing and how far you are aware about the same. Failure means you have courage, you have the strength to endure and face it. It shows you that you have the capacity to face all kinds of failures and to accept them and value them as an experience. It’s very important to remind ourselves what lead up to a particular failure.

Don’t try to Hide your failure:

We all have a mind-set to remember our victories alone and forgot our failures. It will be very useful if you keep a track of your failures. Talk to yourself about the failures and keep a journal and reminders of your failures. The idea is to not to completely think about the failure, but to value them and use it as an experience in order to avoid the same mistake in future.

Don’t Give up | Five Secret Mantras which Leads you to Success

Failure is the road to Success:

It seems illogic but a failure by definition is an unplanned outcome. It will route you to a path you would otherwise have avoided. It will take you to a place you would otherwise never have gone. If any unplanned things happened, we should consider it as an opportunity. Pay close attention to the opportunities that your failures give you and indeed you have to be open to them.

Failure is a Part of Success:

Without failure there is no success, failure is a part of success and opposite of success is apathy. Those who have failed many times are the people that succeed most often. Without giving up, they try again and again until they reach the success. You will never make it, if you quit at the first loss.

So the point here is, don’t feel low and stop when you face any failures. Use them as an experience and keep on trying at one point you will reach your success. Good luck!

Get Rid of Anxiety and Fear | How to Overcome Fear?

When I think about fear, I used to think about a power that keeps me alive. And you can witness its very different from the way normally people think about fear, that it’s the bad thing that I should do everything to avoid. We turned fear into an enemy. And we can sing songs about the most important thing is to have no fear and you have those slogans “No Fear!” And as a man you learn to overcome fear and be brave and we can see that there is a lot of misunderstanding about what is fear and what should we do with it. The fact is that we’ll always be afraid. Every time something changes in the situation, which means, all the time, we are afraid, we don’t know what will happen next. And this kind of fear keeps us attentive, alive, on our toes and ready to adopt change, run away or whatever is necessary. Or think, okay?

Get Rid of Anxiety and Fear | How to Overcome Fear?
Get Rid of Anxiety and Fear | How to Overcome Fear?

To deal with the new situation. So fear allows us to really fit to the physical reality that is around us and not just to what is in our minds. So in a way, it’s a beneficial power. It comes to bring us a lot of energy and a lot of ability to concentrate, to think to make quick decisions. But we get trained from very young that fear is a bad thing. When we were small and we were afraid, it frightened out parents. And since they also didn’t want fear they tried to make us unafraid that they will not have to be afraid. Now this has been going on for many, many generations that every sign of fear is something that says we have to calm it down, push it down, pretend it’s not there, try to find solutions and you can see that we created a defense against fear that somehow pushes it away from us, it doesn’t allow us to really even experience what it is.

When teaching people how to allow fear and how to agree to be afraid, most of the time they are amazed at how wonderful it feels. In their mind it appears as a horrible kind of experience, as something terrible that they shouldn’t agree to, that it will be really bad, but when it happens, actually the experience is very different. For example, to stand in front of people and talk for those who are not professional, and many times even for professionals, is embarrassing.

We also look at the two types of fear we can meet in life. One is fresh fear. It’s happening now. The house is falling, if we don’t move now, very fast, we’re dead. So this kind of fear is immediate. You manage to escape, you run outside, you look at the house collapsing and your body starts to shake after, because what happens now? The fresh fear became old fear. It’s now a memory. It’s not happening anymore when you’re outside watching the house falling down. But what you have now is old fear that if you didn’t know how to allow fresh fear in your body and now it’s being stuck in your body and it gives you the experience of it’s happening now even if it’s not happening now. So you can see the misunderstand how to deal with fresh fear and we try to turn it into old fear. Old fear is old in the sense that it happened in the past, in history, not now. Our bodies respond to fresh fear now. We get filled up with energy, and unless we are trained to block fear, repress fear and freeze as a reaction to fear, then this energy makes us move. If we are too terrified of fear and we freeze then we are victims of the fear itself and instead of being beneficial it’s actually the fear that will kill us and not something else. So when we look at fresh fear and old fear, we can see another thing is that fresh fear, if it’s very long, we cannot be able to maintain it, we are unable to experience long fresh fear.

Get Rid of Anxiety and Fear | How to Overcome Fear?

When the new fear makes you to think or talk about it for more than three days, your ability to allow fear would be diminished greatly. You’d be exhausted and you will try to turn it into old fear in a way that it would not touch you anymore. It’s because our bodies are not designed for long fear. If you think of wild animals that we once were, If the lion came at us we either died and then no more fear or we managed to escape and if we survived, then this fear was a blessing. But imagine yourself running away from the lion for three days, constantly there is no tree high enough, there is no rock big enough and you’re running and running and the lion runs and runs

We are unable to actually deal with something like that and you can see that the traumas that leave the strongest mark on us are those either those that devastated us in a moment. If we got into an accident and we have now 20 broken bones and five surgeries and it was clear that in one moment it all happened, or long periods of time in which we were terrified, like being abused in childhood or being in a prison where we were tortured for long periods of time or we had to suffer all kinds of depravation under long circumstances, then our ability to deal with fresh fear is diminished greatly, we cannot maintain it for too long.

Pain and fear wake up the body’s immunity, strength, resistance, etc. and those kinds of power are what keep us in well-being and in health. You take away pain and fear and we don’t really have anything to fight for.

For a woman after undergoing so many miscarriages, stress and tension are serious concerns. So stress needs to be addressed at the earliest as possible.

The another cause of abortion in 1st trimester is defective chromosomes, the major factor effecting the chromosomal abnormalities is environmental pollution, though we see 2-5% of defect in parental chromosomes. 10-15% due to hormonal imbalances. Immunological disorders and infections sharing each 5-10%. Air pollutants like carbon monoxide, benzene, ozone etc., effect too.

It’s vital that Fallopian tubes are free to move after formation of egg. It brings the eggs to uterus. Lining layer of uterus should be in good condition. Consider this lining layer as the bed for the baby in the uterus. It’s important for the embryo to get attached to this layer. Progesterone plays a vital role in fetus implantation. There are 2 reasons for problem in foetal implantation to the uterus. 2/3rd of the problem is due to endometrium i.e., uterus and 1/3rd due to defect in fetus. We have to study the formation of egg and lining layer during every scan. It is always suggested to consume adequate water for better results during follicular study. Avoid coffee and tea, instead take green tea, it’s good in antioxidants. Taking more water influences the quality and functionality of eggs. Doing breathing exercises improve blood circulation, which helps in ovulation and implantation.
