Life is Not a Bed of Roses, but rather a Bed of Thorns

Life is not a bed of roses neither it is full of thorns. Life is full of struggle but there is a lot of problems and challenges faced by the people in daily life. Prosperity in every field of life never comes to you on its own. You have to struggle hard to get to it. A good example is that of a sport person. A boxer can only win a fight based on the amount of effort and hard work. People are exposed to a number of problems and challenges, and it is only when such obstacles are tackled will a person be able to be successful. Success can never be earned by staying idle and this implies that it is important to put an effort to increase the chances of becoming successful in life. Life is full of struggle and challenges, and if we want to succeed we should always keep our trust in Allah Almighty and also in ourselves. Success or failure, Happiness or sorrow, moments are the part of life and vary from person to person, if you have not faced the moments of failure, you cannot realize the worth of happiness or success. I do not concur with these, we just keep firm belief on Allah. Allah knows that what is best for us because Allah is the only and unique creator of the whole universe and the one who can give solutions to our problems. Sometimes people think that there is no hope of success and finds darkness everywhere. “For every dark night, there’s a brighter day.” You have studied the story of King Robert Bruce of Scotland and a story of Spider. But I would like to put an example of our Boss cum Brother Mr. Sharif uddin Khilji (a real successful person). If we study the struggle of Mr. Sharif uddin Khilji we will come to know that success in life is after passing the path of difficulties. Facing the difficulties will make you acceptable to the challenges of life and if you accept the challenges, success will follow you. Hiding from the challenges will give a serious set-back in the form of a looser in the competitive race of life. Adversity and hardship is that great part of life which leads towards the successful future. Adversity makes you stronger and enough capable to bear the entire crisis of life. One should never lose the heart but should face his failures boldly. We should never lose the hope as we say that:“Tomorrow never dies” What it takes as we know, it is a hard and difficult journey but when the smoke will clear, we shall emerge as victors and survivors. We have to move forward in our quest for victory No matter. We have to search more, struggle hard to overcome fear in ourselves. Always remember an example that climbing the ladder says to reach to the top you have to climb every single step on the ladder. Same is the case with the success of life. Success is not the ladder which can be climbed with your hands in the pocket. “Life never waits for anyone, you have to come up and get”

It’s your makeup, your choice.

It’s your makeup, your choice. While some people wear makeup to create an illusion of perfection and others to impress suitors, some wear it as a form of enjoyment or expression. Whatever the purpose—if it makes you happy, why the hell not? Women get a lot of criticism for wearing makeup. If they wear too much, they are called cake-face, but if they don’t wear any all, they either look tired or sick. Society expects women to be flawless; women are expected to be well-dressed and well-mannered, all while having the perfect au naturale beauty. We live in an oxymoronic society where many women try to achieve the no-makeup-makeup look. Some critics would say women wear makeup solely to impress men. I must have missed the memo about our entire existence being dedicated to impressing men. But that criticism also holds some truth. Women and men can wear makeup to impress suitor, but so what? It’s one thing for men to criticize women for what they do or wear. But women who criticize other women are even worse. Women who choose not to wear makeup have the right not to and shouldn’t receive any shame or ridicule. However, many women who don’t wear makeup hold such hostility towards women who do. It’s great if an individual feels beautiful in his or her own skin. But if he or she prefers a little enhancement through makeup, who cares? Reversely, women who enjoy wearing makeup do not care if someone does or doesn’t. These same women generally support and teach their talents, rather than criticize. Contextually, makeup has been around for thousands of years holding many cosmetic, symbolic or traditional values. Long before 4,000 B.C., Egyptians used substances found in nature as makeup. It was widely popular among both men and women. Their makeup was worn to distinguish social status, part of rituals and even used to protect the skin from harsh conditions of the desert. The Greeks and Chinese used chalk and rice, respectively, to whiten their complexion. Roman men died their hair blond while Roman women used sheep’s fat and blood as nail polish. Fast-forward a couple hundred years, Elizabeth of England, Queen Elizabeth I, the aristocracy and both sexes of the colonial era all used white lead paint to lighten their complexion. It wasn’t until present day when makeup was feminized and unjustly judged. Makeup is whatever you make of it. Makeup is an art form. Many people do not see it as such, but it does take a long time to master and everyone has their own style. Makeup artists and the everyday consumer might agree makeup is not only fun but it also takes time, patience and even training to master. Many people would be surprised at how great makeup is. All of the so called manly or cool movies that involve aliens, mystical creatures, etc. all use special-effects makeup. If not for the men and women in the special-effects makeup industry, movies and television shows wouldn’t be as great as they are today. If you hate on makeup and people who wear it, you’re hating on all those movies too. So if makeup is something you are passionate about, go for it. Most importantly, makeup shouldn’t pigeonhole your gender identity or sexual preference. I’ve always said lipstick is just like war paint. If I want to cake my face with makeup, I will do so. Makeup is not defining, but liberating. Society needs to liberate makeup in return.

My Life as a Full Time Blogger & Content Creator

I'm writing this blog post because most people have no idea what I do for a living. Even some my closest friends and family don't really understand how I made blogging my full time job! I hope that through this post I can answer a lot of questions about what it's like to work in social media marketing both on Instagram and blogging. So let's jump right in with what exactly I do! I create beautiful content for companies looking to advertise their products online, and I post that content onto my social media platforms. Some large companies that I've recently worked with include Google, Dr Pepper, Pampers, and Zevia. I also educate my audience on the importance of using these brands in their everyday life on my blog. Some of my most recent posts have been in collaboration with Dove (focusing on self-confidence in women), Munchkin (traveling with kids), and Osea (vegan skincare products). I also own BSL Consulting, where I consult bloggers and brands on how market their Instagram pages so they can be successful online. I develop friendships with my audience, network with brands from all over the world, and bring up other creatives looking to grow their platforms! It's seriously the best job

NEVER STOP #RUKNA NAHI

Love is a journey of heartbreak, in which two people get on the boat of love in search of happiness and end up bearing unbearable sadness My heart said “let’s fall in love again.” But my mind replied, “beware! Your efforts are again going in vain.” I was confused between mind and heart then I decided to follow the path given by heart. I started sailing on that boat but deep inside I knew there can be storms anytime in this sea of love. It will make me fall from my boat. I was sailing in my boat blindly and here those goons of betrayal and sadness stepped on my boat silently. I was weak inside and I guess that’s why they thrown me aside. My feelings gotta go. And now I know love is the journey which can make me self loathe. Thank you so much for reading this article. Love you all NEVER STOP #RUKNA NAHI

Addicted 2 Success

All my childhood, I studied hard and got good grades because I was motivated to escape my mother’s disappointment and wrath on failure. Others in my class were motivated by their desire to excel and get into a good college. Still, others were doing it to maintain their social status and to be recognized as excellent students. The word “motivation” holds a different meaning for different people, as what motivates you may not be sufficient for me and vice versa. Let’s dig deeper into what the term means. What is Motivation? The word motivation has been derived from the word “motive,” which means the human need that needs to be fulfilled to achieve satisfaction. This need can be acquired over time through the elements that surround people, such as the kind of culture, lifestyle, or the kind of environment that is around them. Motivation is a diverse and varied concept because human beings are diverse and varied themselves. Generally, motivation is a repetitive behavior, something that helps keep us going. It is the driving force that builds within us to take on challenges. Unsurprisingly, the concept of motivation has been of interest to sociologists and psychologists alike. Research in multiple fields, including business, psychology, and sociology, has tried to explain the concept of motivation in terms of human behavior. “People Who Are Crazy Enough To Think They Can Change The World, Are The Ones Who Do.” – Rob Siltanen What is Social Motivation? Social motivation refers to the human need to connect with each other and their desire to be able to be accepted by each other. Humans are not meant to live on their own, because they are supposed to coexist with others, and the need to interact with each other is what sets the basis of social motivation. In this article, we will explain the concept of motivation in sociology. We will explain it with the help of different theories presented by psychologists and sociologists to understand human motivation and its sources. Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs According to Abraham Maslow, a person’s motivation depends on his need level. His hierarchy of needs took a pyramidic shape where the lowest rung makes up the most basic level needs, and they keep moving upwards. Given below is the hierarchy of needs presented by Maslow. Physiological needs: These are the basic survival needs of humans, such as food, water, and a place to live. Once these needs are fulfilled, humans move on to the second phase, which brings us to the second stage of the hierarchy. Safety: The second most important human need is that of safety. It is human nature to protect themselves from any danger or anything that is a threat to them. Therefore, when humans are at this need level, they can be motivated by providing safety for themselves and their families. Social needs: When the first two needs are fulfilled, humans look for relationships in which they feel as if they belong somewhere, and they are loved. Self-esteem: All humans have self-esteem and dignity — they need to be respected and recognized as an important element that plays a role in human motivation. Self-Actualization: The last level of Maslow’s hierarchy of needs is self-actualization. This is an opportunity for humans to develop and learn. It is the greatest level that humans can achieve. Once humans reach this level, they can only be motivated by their yearning for learning. “Growth must be chosen again and again; fear must be overcome again and again.” – Abraham Maslow McClelland’s Theory of Needs The second theory we will be discussing is McClelland’s theory of needs. This theory is based on three motivating drivers. Achievement According to McClelland, a sense of achievement helps motivate people to achieve greater things in life. Achievement is basically the feeling that humans feel when they accomplish tasks. People who aim for achievement are looking for tasks that would help them grow personally, and they receive their due recognition as soon as possible. Affiliation As humans, we all seek the need to feel like we belong somewhere and be socially accepted. Those people who seek affiliation are motivated when they are accepted in society. It drives them to work harder and achieve more. Such people are also happier when they are in social gatherings, and they want to avoid any conflicts with others. Power The third driving factor is authority; some of us are motivated by the desire to be in a position of power. Those people who desire power are constantly looking for situations in which they would be able to exercise their authority. They seek situations or jobs in which they would be in a position of authority, which motivates them. Let’s take the simple example of house cleanliness; some people are motivated to keep their houses clean because they feel a sense of achievement in maintaining a clean house. On the other hand, some may maintain cleanliness because it allows them to connect with their friends and peers. While others maintain a spick and span home so they can maintain control and power among their peers.

Parental pressure: A fine line between caring and caring too much

Parents want the best for their children. They oft dream of their children attending the best of universities and then securing a most respectable job in modern society. They work and earn so they can care for their child. While a secure and happy family environment is considered a bare necessity for healthy growth and development, there is a fine line between caring and caring too much. Parental pressure has led to the most horrible scenarios. Modern society is a very competitive place. Honesty and humbleness are shown with sarcasm, good deeds are questioned and bad deeds regularly ignored. Power and money have become prime needs for survival. Unemployment rates are running high. Adding to the pressure on students, considered the future, are those parents whom place mountains of responsibility on their children. One can only imagine what the child goes through. Many parents want their children to be the star of the class, the top of the school. This is not wrong in that we must aim high to reach our utmost potential but there is, however, a saying that "a chicken can run, canoodle, play and eat. It can enjoy the time it lives. When it tries to fly, though, it will only disappoint itself". When students are burdened with such high expectations, good intentions go astray. Children are expected to score high in order to make their parents proud. But what happens when they are crushed by overly high expectations and are unable to achieve? In this new era, a parent can keep track of their child’s academic results, assignments, levels and reports. Some parents obsess over these scores so much that the need for their child to achieve the top score overtakes all else. Parental pressure leads to stress and anxiety. The child always has their nose in books, is stressed, and faces anxiety and fears failing. Sleep deprivation, eating disorders, excessive worrying, cheating, burnout, loss of interest in hobbies and withdrawal from friends and family can be among the consequences of excess pressure. Teenage years represent the time when a child goes through mental and physical changes. The need to fit into society will grow along with their desire to be attractive, or adequately academic. Parents are the backbones to help them through this time, and thus parental pressure may bring forth a breakdown. School is full of standardized tests and students are regularly asked to complete up to four or five hours of homework every night. This often causes parents to think they need to monitor their child’s progress; preferably by intruding into their social life and peering over their shoulder while they study. Such high expectations and pressure may also cause the child to suffer blood pressure problems. They may feel increasingly tired and detached. They will not win at everything and they will not always score well. This brings disappointment, leads to low self-esteem and poor self-image. Parents tend to goad their children into becoming all-rounders and children often end up as victims rather than success stories.

All that glitters is just a distraction.

If you’re liberal and you’re lazy, clap your hands. But then, if you’re truly liberal and you’re lazy, you’d be too lazy to clap your hands. Instead, you’d be shocked to discover a new Bigotry of the Week, then register your dismay on social media — or, if you’re entitled enough, in a weekend column in mainstream media — and stew in your own juices till the next Bigotry of the Week comes banging at the door. This week, it was a Tanishq ad whose point was to sell its jewellery. It turns out that like Fifty Shades of Grey somehow finding its way into a school library, the ad reached the wrong target customer: conservative Hindus who don’t like the notion of their beta-betis marrying Muslims at all — something that the jewellery brand sought to promote while making its sales pitch. Social media — like sex chat rooms and WhatsApp groups — magically empowers shy, timid souls by providing them a cover of anonymity. So, while the notion of inter-faith marriage, and the idea of an ad extolling it, horrify many (you don’t have to be a troll to be conservative), raging about it in apoplectic terms as ‘love jihad’ etc is little else but a counter-campaign to a warm, fuzzy ad campaign, both of which get amplified by social media and then ‘unsocial’ media. And when the outrage on social media’s ether bubbles up into the real world in the form of some people reportedly barging into a showroom in Gujarat, demanding a note of ‘apology to the Hindu community’ on behalf of the store that’s put up and later removed, we have an anklet turned into a broken ankle, a necklace turned into a strangled neck. The liberal outrage against the illiberal bile is justified. But it follows a certain, well-established playbook at the centre of which lies mass distraction. In the larger scheme of things, the issue of inter-faith marriage and its discontents is a frisbee in the park. As is Tanishq’s decision to react to the ‘unease of doing business’ by removing the ad. Their business, their decision — especially when the job of advertising their brand has gone well beyond the remit of the commissioned ad, thanks to literally free agents. All that glitters may not be gold, but it can certainly be distracting if distraction is the need of the hour. The country, as far as one can tell, is not being overrun either by Hindu-Muslim nuptials, or by Hindu inbreeding on the lines of the 1979 Rajkumar Kohli ‘horror-romance’ classic, Jaani Dushman. One can safely (sic) presume that job losses, salary cuts, dip in household earnings, returning to schools and dying of Covid apart, matters like law and order as displayed in the handling of rape, and the one-upmanship in pre-election political violence are more worrying issues. As sheer time-pass, even the rolled-out, Manali hash-tagged Bollywood saga scores over this tinsel products advertisement. Liberal laziness, unfortunately, doesn’t seem to give the Tanishq episode its due unimportance. A business enterprise being given bad, negative customer feedback because of unsavoury, narrow-minded reasons isn’t exactly the advent of bigotry. That circus came to town and pitched its tent a while back. But by giving this episode — runts ranting on social media and venting their pent-up fantasies about customer penetration and brand unfaithfulness — so much bhao, those denouncing hidebound neurotics are feeding these ferrets and making them fat with a cause, however, inane, unjust and against the law (Special Marriage Act, 1954) their foaming.com may be. Instead of starting, say, a #MarryAMuslim campaign, or invoking ‘Secular India’ to ears that, like Maharashtra governor B S Koshiyari’s pairs, deem the word ‘secular’ to mean something sinister, liberals should utilise what has usually been considered their domain weakness: laziness. Liberals, whether from the left, right or centre, usually do not go barging in to put up notices on shopfronts, attack bastions of illiberalism or intolerance, proactively seek the removal of copies of Mein Kampfs or the Little Red Book from bookstores, or protest outside and damage property of cinemas depicting Kangana Ranaut movies. This culture of ‘boycotting’ over ‘removing’ fundamentally skews the matter in favour of the more active, more vitriolic ‘opinionated’, especially when administrations use them as dog show attack dogs with no leash leading back to the administrations. But, to quote a well-known radical Conservative’s advice to democratic nations, liberals in India must try to find ways to starve the figurative terrorist and hijacker of the oxygen of publicity on which they depend. With the art and science of opposition mostly in the doghouse these days, knowing what are issues and what are non-issues and then letting the latter lie is a sound strategy. Tanishq, one can safely presume, can deal with its own pre-Diwali publicity and sales, especially in these days of enhanced online commercial activity.

What is Art? and/or What is Beauty?

Art is something we do, a verb. Art is an expression of our thoughts, emotions, intuitions, and desires, but it is even more personal than that: it’s about sharing the way we experience the world, which for many is an extension of personality. It is the communication of intimate concepts that cannot be faithfully portrayed by words alone. And because words alone are not enough, we must find some other vehicle to carry our intent. But the content that we instill on or in our chosen media is not in itself the art. Art is to be found in how the media is used, the way in which the content is expressed. What then is beauty? Beauty is much more than cosmetic: it is not about prettiness. There are plenty of pretty pictures available at the neighborhood home furnishing store; but these we might not refer to as beautiful; and it is not difficult to find works of artistic expression that we might agree are beautiful that are not necessarily pretty. Beauty is rather a measure of affect, a measure of emotion. In the context of art, beauty is the gauge of successful communication between participants – the conveyance of a concept between the artist and the perceiver. Beautiful art is successful in portraying the artist’s most profound intended emotions, the desired concepts, whether they be pretty and bright, or dark and sinister. But neither the artist nor the observer can be certain of successful communication in the end. So beauty in art is eternally subjective.

To-Do Lists The Key to Efficiency

Do you often feel overwhelmed by the amount of work you have to do? Do you find yourself missing deadlines? Or do you sometimes just forget to do something important, so that people have to chase you to get work done? All of these are symptoms of not keeping a proper "To-Do List." These are prioritized lists of all the tasks that you need to carry out. They list everything that you have to do, with the most important tasks at the top of the list, and the least important tasks at the bottom. By keeping such a list, you make sure that your tasks are written down all in one place so you don't forget anything important. And by prioritizing tasks, you plan the order in which you'll do them, so that you can tell what needs your immediate attention, and what you can leave until later. To-Do Lists are essential if you're going to beat work overload. When you don't use them effectively, you'll appear unfocused and unreliable to the people around you. When you do use them effectively, you'll be much better organized, and you'll be much more reliable. You'll experience less stress, safe in the knowledge that you haven't forgotten anything important. More than this, if you prioritize intelligently, you'll focus your time and energy on high-value activities, which will mean that you're more productive, and more valuable to your team. Keeping a properly structured and thought-out list sounds simple enough. But it can be surprising how many people fail to use them at all, never mind use them effectively. In fact, it's often when people start to use them effectively and sensibly that they make their first personal productivity breakthroughs, and start making a success of their careers. The video, below, gives some tips on how you can start to use To-Do Lists more effectively. Using Your To-Do List To use your list, simply work your way through it in order, dealing with the A priority tasks first, then the Bs, then the Cs, and so on. As you complete tasks, tick them off or strike them through. What you put on your list and how you use it will depend on your situation. For instance, if you're in a sales-type role, a good way to motivate yourself is to keep your list relatively short, and aim to complete it every day. But if you're in an operational role, or if tasks are large or dependent on too many other people, then it may be better to focus on a longer-term list, and "chip away" at it day-by-day. Many people find it helpful to spend, say, 10 minutes at the end of the day, organizing tasks on their list for the next day

Would you prefer being in a toxic environment (but you get to do whatever you want to do) or Be independent and learn from your own struggles?

Most youngster are fighting the battle between being dependent or independent. But there is no proper solution. Share your insights. Let's help each other :)
