[Ep 72] Action Matters More Than Plans

  • Reading time:2 mins read

How true is this! How many times have you planned to have a catch up with a friend or plan to go get a coffee and it never happens? Instead of wasting time making plans, why don’t we just do things? Instead of pretending like we are going to do someday far away in the future, why don't we take action right now? I was recently involved in a scavenger hunt. All of the other teams started planning. My team was the only one who did things differently - we got up right away and took action. This got me thinking. Why do some people spend time creating plans and strategies instead of taking some solid, tangible action? Actions speak louder than words, don't they? Or at least they should, in my opinion. Podcast Content Strategizing vs Actions Practice makes perfect We all need to accept our failures Stop putting people on pedestals Yes, planning has its place in our lives. Plan…

[Ep 71] When You Change the Way You Look at Things

  • Reading time:2 mins read

In this episode, I’ll be talking about a quote I read by Wayne Dyer “When you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change”. I feel that this quote is so powerful and true and can be applied to every little thing in this world. If we are told something is one way, our mind doesn’t tend to question it unless we push it. Just because one-person views something one way doesn’t mean that is the correct or only way to view it. Once you change your perception on something, it can change physically or your perception of it may change. Podcast Content A quote by Wayne Dyer How perceptions can change Consciousness is very important My perception of the world I could spend a long time dissecting this quote. It really does apply to everything in this world. The way I view my own personal relationships for instance. Or, even the food I eat. We could…

In this episode, I’ll be talking about the universe and how everything that happens to us happens for a reason. No matter what happens in this life, whether it’s meeting a new person, missing your bus, a change of direction or any event no matter how small or insignificant it maybe, it happens for a reason.

[Ep 69] Deliberate Practice Makes Talent

  • Reading time:2 mins read

In this episode, I’ll be talking about talent and how many people have an idea planted in their heads that talent is something you're born with. When in fact, talent is something that is made and developed over time by passionate, hard-working, and dedicated people. From a young age, people are drilled with this idea that individuals are born talented. Once people are told that they are talented, they might start to slack, and thus, lose or forget their craft. Practice makes perfect. If you have a passion or a craft, then you should work hard at it daily to keep your craft alive.

[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. (more…)

[Ep 67] The Elastic Band Technique To Reduce Negative Thoughts

  • 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.

[bctt tweet=”It takes about 15 to 20 positive thoughts to negate the effects of a single negative thought.” username=”BoomShikha”]

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. (more…)

[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. (more…)

[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. (more…)

[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. (more…)
