[Ep 68] Everything’s Amazing And Nobody’s Happy

  • Reading time:2 mins read

In this episode, I’ll be talking about this quote I heard from Louis CK in one of his comedy routines.

Isn’t this just the truth? Everything’s amazing, but nobody’s happy. 

It is actually a bit shameful when we think about lucky we all are to live in this abundant, magnificent, and magnanimous world, that wants to give us everything. But all we do all day long is complain, whine, and bitch about everything that is going on and how nothing is perfect.

Well, it is damn well close to perfect, but we aren’t able to see it, because all we focus on are the flaws.

  • Reading time:2 mins read

In this episode, I’ll chat about the elastic band technique to reduce negative thoughts and negativity in your mind. Have you ever heard of this technique? If not, check out this episode, and learn more.

Negative thoughts are like weeds, and if you let them foster and grow, they are growing to bring their entire families with them and they are going to completely invade and take over your mind.

Negative thoughts are much more potent and powerful than positive thoughts, and they are much easier to cultivate in our minds.

Therefore, it is our paramount duty to remove negative thoughts as soon as they pop up, if not instantly, then soon thereafter.

[Ep 66] Our Inside World Creates The Outside

  • Reading time:2 mins read

In this episode, I’ll be chatting about the age-old philosophy that your outside world will not change until and unless you change your inside world. It is an insurmountable fact.

[bctt tweet=”There are millions of people on this planet who have a lot of money in their bank accounts.” username=”BoomShikha”]

On the outside, they are very, very rich.

But when I speak to them, I notice that they sometimes have a scarcity mindset. They do not believe that they have enough. They always want more so they are always hoarding, and always worrying about money.

That is not true wealth. Even though their outside world has money, they do not have that abundance mindset on the inside, and thus, they are not truly rich. And until they change their mindset, they will never be truly rich.

[Ep 65] Why Can’t We See Ourselves As Others See Us?

  • Reading time:2 mins read

In this episode, I’ll be chatting about seeing yourselves as others see you.

Everyone else always tells me I’m more beautiful, stronger, better, and bolder than what I think of myself. Why is everyone else able to see my beauty better than I can see myself?

I just came back from a workshop on creativity and sexuality and a gathering with a bunch of amazing and magnificent people here in Chiang Mai – they inspire me and they are the ones I aspire to be.

I just cannot believe how lucky I am to be with them, and it makes me wonder what they see in me and what draws them to hang out with me.

[Ep 64] There Are Always Two People Inside Of Me

  • Reading time:2 mins read

In this episode, I’ll be chatting about the two people that reside inside of me.

These two people are always battling it out for priority. One believes that she is the bomb, and can do anything she puts her mind to.

[bctt tweet=”Another believes she does not know what the hell she’s talking about and wants to curl up in a ball, and hide.” username=”BoomShikha”]

I would like to share my recent conversation with a friend.

I was in a workshop and I was sitting next to this beautiful woman and she was telling me how she was trying to have faith in the universe that the money will show up because she is currently having some financial difficulties.

She relies on herself, she does not trust the others, and she believes that if she works really hard, she will be successful.

She made me realize that I am exactly the same. One part of me wants to hustle and trust only herself.

[Ep 63] Ordinary Moments Vs. Extraordinary Moments

  • Reading time:2 mins read

In this episode, I’ll be chatting about the challenges of staying in the moment.

When we realize that every moment in our life is extraordinary in its own way, and we can learn from each moment in its own special way, that is when we will truly start living in the present moment and changing our lives.

I notice whenever I go to any cafe, or restaurant, that most patrons, including myself, are busy consuming content on our phones, rather than spending time with the people that we went there with. Or we are busy spending time in our busy minds, rather than observing the magic that the universe plays out for us every day.

[bctt tweet=”We are always somewhere else.” username=”BoomShikha”]

Somewhere else is always better and more interesting than the present moment.

Instead of spending all of this precious time with my family or friends, I’m always far, far away.
