How To Be A Winner In Life

How to be a winner in life

1. Know what you want to get out of life … as you won’t reach your goals if you don’t where you’re going.
2. Make a list of all things that you’re grateful for … as it will change your attitude, your feelings and your mood.
3. Count to 10 before responding (or even worse, reacting) … as you don’t want to live with a series of regrets.
4. Track your progress so you know how you’re doing on your journey, and can make adjustments if you find you get off course. 
5. Take care of yourself or you’ll end up burnt out – and you’ll lose the motivation to try, and persevere.

Cycle of Hope and despair is going on on. You need to work on original pain. Try Cognitive Behaviour Therapy Relaxation Meditation Yoga Good diet/ Sleep Socializing Good communication skills Improving your scholastic skills Communicating skills with peers and friends Planning work/life balance Playing and excercising Maintaing emotional health with good life partner and planning for a family/continuing Good relationship Good communication with relarives. See how you can solve it. You can either continue medication or taper it very slowly. Do not stop abruptly.

Having a" break up" in a love relationship is almost like" losing a person forever" your loss is understandable. But if you both have made your minds to say good bye, you will have to give yourself and him both a chance to fulfil your decisions. It is going to take some time before you get back to life again. It seems from your story that you are finding it more difficult to get through it. Though there is no full proof formula fir going through a break up, it advisable that you follow some suggestions. Never stay alone, be with friends that make you laugh and make you happy, avoid friends that weep with you, pursue your hobbies, lure yourself by watching your favourite movies with friends, going on vacations with family etc. Avoid finding refuge in harmful ways of coping like drinking, smoking, crying out aloud, finding temporary partners for a fling etc. That does more harm than good. If you still feel unable to cope up, consult a therapist or a psychiatrist for counselling and help. Take care.

I am a chain smoker, please advise how I get free from it or reduce it? I really want to leave this.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Best age to stop smoking is before 40 ,In fact do not start all Only by using strong will power and avoiding all situations where you feel like smoking, chewing tobacco or drinking or using drugs avoiding friends who smoke and diverting mind by reading or chewing a gum, like NICORETTE and taking a walk when you crave for a smoke can all help. You can chew Nicorette gum which is nicotine replacement. There are medicines available. Which can be prescribed if asked personally Cigarette smoking is a leading preventable cause of mortality. It kills more than 60 lakh people worldwide every year. More than 50% of regular smokers would invariably die from tobacco-related illnesses which includes heart attack, cancer or asthmatic lung diseases. Best age to stop smoking is before 40

I am in a relationship with my bf from 5 months. But he already cleared that he can't marry me as his parents are very conservative and we both are of different castes. We both love each other. Is the relationship is worth keeping without commitment?

Masters in Clinical Psychology
Psychologist, Lucknow
If you both have understanding and are mature enough to carry on with the relationship without commitment it's fine. But many a times we get very emotionally attached with the person and when one fine day we have to leave the person it gets really diffuclt and then begins cycle of blame game guilty feelings sadness etc. So decide like an adult. My advise would be get over the relation if you had plans of marrying, if you are mature enough to detach you self from the person after years of togetherness then it's up to you. All the best.

She needs support and for that she needs to open her heart out with any relationship and marriage expert. This is needed immediately as early as possible. If she doesn't want to go and meet the expert she can connect online as well. This depression takes some time because the breakup is very very fresh. Till then take care that she doesn't harm herself and for that in spite of arguing just spend sometime with her and only listen to her with empathy and compassion. Decide and make a direct contact either online or in person.

Dear Lybrate user it's natural to feel drained out and stressed after a long day at work. Nothing to worry about. You just need to balance your work so that it don't causes you stress. If you go to your work without any happiness and enthusiasm it will again increase your stress and this vicious cycle will continue. so try to enjoy your work take that work load as challenge and work towards achieving ur targets. try take out time on weekends for going out with friends. some hobby time could be helpful. you can also indulge in getting spa and relaxing therapy. Try these steps. Please free to give your feedback.

You seem to be in an anger-related depression, and hopefully it does not go into a more severe condition. I think you need to meet with a counselor and a psychiatrist and get an immediate evaluation and proper treatment. Even after any prescription I recommend that you continue with the counseling until the whole matter is resolved. Your cooperation is absolutely essential up to the end: just a caution, many people quit treatment when they feel well, which is not the sign but only when you feel cured (as defined by the professionals alone) should you cease any therapy. Because you have an anger-related depression, there will be violence towards self in the form of suicide: you have become your worst enemy. This anger may be rooted in your childhood and it will help to investigate that and locate the genesis and treat the same with some therapy. In the meantime you can follow these simple rules too: Have a good night’s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber, nuts, avocado, exercise regularly, eat dark chocolate, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. I suggest you do the opposite of what this depression makes you feel like doing (actually, not doing): you will need to fight this condition. You must become active; stay upright during the daylight time; meet people; never sleep during the day, wake up by 6 am every day, play some active games, especially contact games, do physical exercises, talk to people and join some social clubs, attend Yoga classes etc. Watch sitcoms on TV or comedies and cheer yourself up. Go for excursions in groups, for outings, camps, conferences, and religious conventions. Get a pet dog and spend time training it, exercising it and relating to it. Expose yourself to some sunlight every day, at least 30 minutes but not in the scotching heat. Whatever happens, please incorporate these three important adaptations in your life: always be responsible, be respectful, and be functional. If you did these three, lots of things will go well in life. Please pray and have faith in God to alleviate your sufferings. Don’t wait for others to help. Use your own motivation, which might be at its lowest, but persevere and win this battle. Above all to be really happy, you need to live in love and for love. Work with a counselor who is there only to facilitate you, all the hard word must come from you, and your cooperation with that person is very critical for your success. Be positive everyday and learn to be contended with what you have. Do some left brain exercises: it is the happy brain. Here are a few suggestions: shut your left nostril and breathe, move your eyes from right to left and vice versa for at least half a minute at a time, and do calisthenic exercises with some form of counting, regularly.

Hello lybrate-user-user stress is somehow good thing in education system, without it we can't progress. Other side stress is depend on how you take matter or how you react matter. In successful life study or knowledge takes only 15%, rest of 85% are how you take matter and attitude so live in lightly without forgetting your target few tips will help you * take good balance diet * take proper sleep * don't worry if 5 marks come less * tragedy of today will be funny thing for tomorrow for you * take chyavanprash 1 tsp in morning * use ghee & milk in diet * you can start some ayurveda medicine, like brahmi, sankhpuspi etc.

Hello lybrate user. Try to relax yourself thats the most important thing right. Our brain also get exhausted wheb there is too much of information. Go for morning walk, walk on the grass barefoot and feel the tenderness of grass. You can also do deep breathing exercises. If your brain and body is relaxed then you wil be better able to concentrate. Also divide your learning task in such a way that you do not feel heavy. Make use of flow charts, tables for organiaing your learning materials. I hope this will help.
