What if you could Be Anyone, Do Anything, Have Anything? – Mind Talk

What if you could Be Anyone

Do you remember when you were a child? What were your dreams? I dreamed of becoming a Pediatrician. I absolutely loved kids. I wanted to open a non profit organisation that would help kids and the elderly who couldn’t help themselves. I dreamed of exploring the world. My obsession with the natural world is even stronger today than it was in my younger years. The mountains, the rivers, the trees, the animals with all their vivid colours. Oh how they inspire me! I wanted to live in a big luxurious castle with servants to cater to my every whim and own the fanciest cars. I dreamed of the fairy tale wedding with the drop dead gorgeous white dress and the Ginormous Diamond ring my husband would get me! This was what I dreamed, from the time I was born to the age of 18. I couldn’t wait to grow up. I couldn’t wait to leave school. I couldn’t wait to become an ‘Adult,’ so that I could start living my dreams. Finally 18 years old, “Yes! I had arrived.” I got a job at a company through a family friend and I started to earn $$$. I worked and saved for a year+ and then got my own apartment. FREEDOM. How beautiful it was. I felt alive and ready to take on the world. But something happened! Wait! Was this really freedom? I worked for 50 out of 52 weeks in the year. The years rolled by 2008, 2009, 2010,2011, 2012, 2013. Whoa! Where did the time go? I was trapped and I didn’t even know it. I had fallen into the Rat Race like so many. The 40x40x40 plan. Work for 40 hours a week, for 40 years of my life to retire on 40% of what I couldn’t live on in the first place. But I suppose Ignorance is Bliss. I was okay with this Life. I had accepted this as my Destiny because this was all I knew.

Everything changed when I got fired in 2013. “Oh no, the end of my life!” “Curse you, you stupid company” I thought. Yes yes, I was quite the drama queen back then. I had no idea, this was the beginning of the Rebirth of my Younger Self ! Working in the system for 5 years made me completely forget about my dreams and aspirations as a child. Instead I was focused on paying bills and entertaining myself as much as possible on the weekends.
After a few months of moping and binge watching every series possible, something happened. Some would see it as a miracle but for me it was an Opportunity. One that was available to everyone else in the world but because I was in a State of Transition in my Life, I saw and grabbed it immediately. Through this opportunity, I was blessed to meet a very successful individual in various aspects of his life. His rags to riches story sent chills down my spine. I thought to myself, 5 years ago this individual was in a worst place than I am now and today he’s a US millionaire. If he can do it, I can do it! There were many thought provoking things he said that day, but the one that stood out the most was the 3 influences in our lives.

The books we read, the things we listen to and the people we associate with. He said you earn the average of the top 5 people you associate with the most. WOW. Where was this information all my life? He has awakened something in me. I made it my duty to have a conversation with this individual even if it was for one minute, I had to have it! Our conversation was brief but his words will remain in my heart forever. They say a Winner can always Spot another Winner. Even though he did know know me, he said “Nicole, you are a Winner and a Champion.” I couldn’t believe my ears. Here I am, a lost soul drifting through life without a clue of where I’m going and here comes this successful Entrepreneur calling me a Winner and a Champion. He believed in me when I didn’t believe in myself. His words inspired me to dream again and has set me on a entire new path. Today I believe in myself. I believe that I could Be Anyone, Do Anything and Everything and have Any and Everything I desire. Because of his words, I am able to dream again but more importantly I am in pursuit of achieving my dreams. My dreams are VERY different today but I wake up now knowing It’s All Possible and I have the Power to Make them come True. My purpose of writing this post is to pass on the Wisdom of the Words that have positively impacted my life. To Everyone out there, You are all Winners. You are all Champions in your Own Way. It’s up to you to figure out what you will be a Champion of. Everything is Possible for Him Who Believes. First you must Believe !!! Then you must Change. Change can be Hard. Very Hard. But if you want Change, You MUST Change. You don’t have to Change Everything, but you do have to start. What are you reading? What are you listening to? Who are you Associating With? MAY ALL YOUR DREAMS COME TRUE. I AM CHEERING FOR YOU.

Forgiveness After The Storm

Forgiveness After The Storm

The muse of poetry in its depths stalls the ensue of thee,Drowning in the sparse spectacle of hope left, one dives into the waters of misery.Triabilsing in the painful stance of existence, death in its allure creeps behind,To be or not be in the bane of tormenting breaths, in their truth one seems to find,

The hostility that binds, convulsion in its gloating flair laughs hysterically at the corpse of being,Dreariness to live in its slow burn writhes the only ounce of light left to see.The void of embracing the freshness of unadulterated air forges to question the beauty,Of living a life that could lead in the lightness of radiance and the smiles of unbridled glee.

The trueness of being lapses in the oscillation of turbulence and the sea of calm,Yet the tides of uncertain syllables that breed animosity render the sou

Beyond Materialism

Most people can understand the happiness that comes from purchasing something for oneself when we talk about needing some retail therapy. Can shopping truly improve our mood? Clinical psychologist Scott Bea, PsyD, affirms that shopping can have psychological and therapeutic benefits as long as it is done in moderation, according to research.

The Aesthetic Epidemic: Understanding the Roots of Lookism

The Aesthetic Epidemic

We care about more than just ourselves – we care about our loved ones, our communities, and the world around us. We are affected by tragic events, especially when a child is murdered, regardless of where it happens. It deeply impacts us and makes us feel disheartened. Moral evils raise doubts about the goodness of the world and the value of existence, especially for those who believe in a benevolent deity. However, anyone can contemplate the purpose and value of the universe in light of such evils. We may not need to worry about the value of the Universe and instead focus on finding value in our own lives or the lives of our loved ones. The concept of value is subjective and can be created by us.

The important question is what we should value or find pleasure in. Some people may try to ignore moral evil by focusing only on their own lives and loved ones, but this narrow perspective is unsatisfying for most. I

An Open Letter To The Hustlers

An Open Letter To The Hustlers

To be or not to be, to go all in or to unwind and relax, we question our dreams, running in constant chase of our quests to come true, we are the ones who never sleep. Dreamers we are called, the ones who passionately strive in the endeavours of the best they could ever be, here is a letter to me, a letter to you. In the stride of embracing the best you have ever been, nurture your soul before the onset of the abundance in you that lies unseen.

Too bold, too much for your age, you are doing too much, how often have you heard these notions been used to describe you? As we tirelessly strive to achieve the next goal we have in our mind, we are often told that we are being hard on ourselves, to enjoy life a little. Life in its entirety passes by us in its dynamic flair, and the existence we envisage holds unique individuality to each one of us. The choices one makes for themselves belies them and them only, and t

How To Remain Centered And Calm In Face Of Difficulty

What if you could Be Anyone

My life is a mess and I have nothing to be grateful about! I witness myself say this phrase from time to time, where life plonks us into the desperation of ebb and flow of wilderness and things not going in our favour.

It is easy to say we are grateful and in complete balance when things are going well and life feels like the warm embrace of the sun shining on a Sunday morning. But the real test lies in remaining grateful and centred when life feels like spinning out of control.

While it is easier said than done, here are some reminders that might help you get through the days that feel like a burden –

1) This too shall pass, no moment in time that feels permanent loses its impermanence. We often lose hope when things don’t go our way and during these sad days, we should remember, that t

15 Most Liberating Thoughts For Someone Who Needs It

What if you could Be Anyone

Our life unfolds in a succession of revelations of who we are. It is when we sit down and repeat the same sentence in our head over and over again, in every action we perform, every activity we indulge ourselves in, does it indulges into our existence as a habit.

The key to having a sense of liberation is allowing life to flow through, not forcing anything and more essentially not resisting change. I believe that our life improves in the direct proportionality of how often we are exposed to situations where are forced to challenge our age-old beliefs and counterfeited perceptions and seek the greater version of ourselves. When we get too comfortable in the comfort zones we build for ourselves, we do not grow into the people we are meant to be. Sadly most people embrace change only when metamorphosis is the less painful and only possible option.

I know that
