The Addict

The Addict


When we attach ourselves strongly to something, then it makes us unable to leave that thing. But the problem starts when that addiction makes us so weak, unhealthy, and it becomes our world. Many people made their mind like that they can’t live without those habits. I am not talking about anyone single bad habit, according to me; any thought which is disturbing you mentally every day is also a bad habit.

Yesterday, I was reading Harvard Medical school article which explains ‘How addiction hijacks the brain’. There mentioned, in 1930’s researchers found the cause for addiction was a lack of will power in people. But today we see addiction as a chronic disease that changes both brain structure and function. 
   
How can anybody overcome this?
It is possible only when we can take strong decisions. Bad habits are not part of us rather they are just part of our mind. When we think like this then it is not difficult to remove these habits. 
Kids don’t know what they are doing, and they don’t know even what is good and bad. It is similar to our mind as well and our mind behaves like a kid every minute. It is always attracted to short time pleasure. So, don’t be a slave to your mind, because this will not end here and it will always try to go to the next level every day. I know it is not possible suddenly. If you feel, you are addicted to something then try to give at least half of that time to a healthy routine. The main reason for bad habits is our bad routine.

What is the best routine?
Well, you can think of the work which will make you healthy and happy. An early morning walk is a good routine so that you will see the beauty of nature and you will meet some wonderful peoples as well. Early morning walk makes us peaceful which is needed for a healthy and happy life. Like this Swimming, Cycling, Gym, Yoga, Sports, and your hobbies are the other things which you can use your free time. Following the same routine makes you bore, so make use of your free time involving in different activities. Keep yourself busy in a healthy routine. Our mind always attracted to new things and change is that attraction. 
When our day is peaceful then our sleep will be blissful. But remember, sleep maybe rest for the body but not for the mind. Our busy life is full of tension and stress because we will never give rest to our minds. At least, daily ten minutes meditation will give us a peaceful mind which keeps us motivated and energetic throughout the day. We were addicted to bad habits because we gave time for that. Just imagine, what happens when we shift that time slowly towards good habits?
Wonderful! Isn’t it?

What is good and bad?
I must tell you, everything will be good when it is in the limit but when it crosses limit then definitely it will become bad.
 
How to come out of these bad habits?
Before four years, one of my friends was addicted to something. People treated him differently and his parents were worried about him. But recently I met him at the bus stand and guess what? He is a completely different person now.
 
I asked him, “How is this possible?”

He replied, “I made my mind that’s all and I feel I am experiencing my life now.”
  
That was amazing! Happy to see him like this. Now, he is working in a bank and moreover he is a healthy person.
   
Never lose yourself in this big battle. Every day you must be mentally prepared for this and every day you must fight to bring a better person from you. Suddenly, we can only expect accidents, shocks, and heart attacks but not good things. Sudden things will always damage our body because our body was not prepared for that. Good things take time. Just like our muscle growth and body growth take time as it needed to give a healthy body. It is possible when we go with a slow process and you can see many living examples of peoples who left their bad habits. They changed their habits because they thought one day they can do this. It is not impossible as well. 
Bad habits may be a pleasure for you, it may be another world for you, and it may be everything for you. But think about your loved ones and you are everything for them. Their eyes only expecting you and they depend on you. If any habit stealing your happiness, separating you from this world, and separating you from yourself. 

Then, 

What is the reason to be addicted to that habit?






Thank you for your time,

Addiction of good habits is good, but it's not true for bad habits. We should never fall for bad habits as they can ruin our life. At the same time a person with bad habits can change his life if decides to do so.

Easy Way

Finding Easy way
If a person experienced many failures then think about his confidence level. Compare his energy level now to when he started then you will find a major difference. His mindset will be weak, instead of finding the answer, he will question his abilities now. But this is not the dark side of him and it is not wrong to think like this. Yes, he fell without knowing ups and downs but now he knows everything about that path. This experience made him firm and now he learned how to think and analyze the situation. This is a great lesson to stand up from failures. But in this stage, one of the obstacles for our growth will be our narrow thinking.  Our thinking may be broad as a beginner but it was without focus. As an experienced one, our thinking should even broader with laser focus intensity. But the negative part of this is when we experience something based on that we close our possibilities to think differently. Don’t make your experience an obstacle to your success. Many ti…

Positive thoughts

Positive thoughts When we think about our plans. Some doubts or questions will remain in our minds. 
Whether I will be safe with my plans? Is this work?
I don’t know it fills my expectation or not? If not what can I do?
Imagine, we have two choices in front of us and both are equally important to us. But we have to pick one out of them, and then what will be our next move. 
Of course, we must assume both the positive and negative sides of each choice to make a good decision. But this is not the end and our approach towards our decision matters a lot. Again our consistent work can only convince us that, “we took a good decision”.
From the choice to work, every stage is important. But many problems and distractions avoid us to complete our work. Then, what we can do?
How to concentrate on our goals?
I must tell you, Worry is not a solution to any problem. Worries are the gateway for many diseases. We have to fix this now; otherwise, we create ourselves a hell.

Limitless

Limitless Fear for trying new things is naturally, but one day you will realize doing nothing was the worst decision you took. Every action will give you results that may be good or bad but, if you stop doing actions then there will be no results. Something is better than nothing that can be our mistakes as well.
Try to see the gap between accepting mistakes and avoiding them. Accepting mistakes can help you to optimize your work, this may be a progressive but avoiding mistakes can harm you. It is a boundary created by yourself to stop your growth. 
If you stop accepting mistakes by the fear of your identity then you will be safe for today but upcoming days will bring you a big disaster. Why stick for some identity if it is not giving you the comfort and the happy life you expect. Change is the basic nature of every human being. Only change can give us joy because change explores us to new things, and we love that. Trust me; it will give us a stronger identity than the previous one.

think different

Think Different







Comparison is not required when their is uniqueness. Absolutely, somebody will be more knowledgeable than me, somebody will be more handsome or beautiful than me and somebody will be stronger than me. These are all applies to that person also, what we are comparing with ourselves. Then, we can conclude this by saying that we are in between the infinite because nothing is constant, not beauty, money, knowledge, etc. All will vary according to the time.Even nature also supporting this uniqueness, just take the example of twins. But even in twins also some differences we can find out that means even nature will not support the existence of the same kind of people. Ok, if we assume also those are the same but their thoughts never are the same. So, nature wants to change then only this world will run. All changes are different in their way and they support this system to grow. If there is no change and the same thoughts will appear to every person in this world at the same …

Things Successful People Do

Things Successful People Do Gaining knowledge is very important and it is the only thing which can make us moving in this world. Just imagine, you are doing something new.  Then, what will you do? You read every possible article on the internet, you search every video on that topic, and you ask every person who is knowledgeable in that field. The choice is yours because this information can give you both courage and fear. By listening failures, you may leave that or you may drop that plan in the middle.  What are success and failure? Both are work and efforts towards a particular thing. Failure of a person refers to us, he tried it, and he failed to complete it. This is his work and effort. What is a big thing in it? The work approach may differ from person to person. If I give the same topic for a hundred people to write an essay and I will get a hundred different opinions on the same topic. This is because of the different viewpoints, and because of these views only, one can succeed or fa…

meeting someone new

Meeting someone new If you feel sad about what you did. One question may be destroying you day by day. You feel you did wrong that day and not everything is going right after that day. You are developing some strength for your mistake so you can defend it, in the process you're making that mistake again and again. You are now the person who hates your surroundings and the surrounding people also hate you. If every day these thoughts are killing you then you are making some big mistake. Don’t worry friends, after all, we are humans. We will make mistakes nothing wrong in it. These mistakes only guide us to a successful and happy life. Without experience, we will make some mistakes but the lesson from that mistake will live throughout life. I think when we made a mistake; we, again and again, enter those surroundings to support our decision with them. First of all stop this thing otherwise we will do many wrong things. Because both sides are in danger at that time so we can’t see wh…
