Know Me Well to Unlock the Magic in My Story!
I am not the kind of person who flaunts what they have, rather I am someone with a purpose in life. The purpose is to help those who are struggling with their falling confidence and declining self-esteem. If you want me to help you, you may want to know who I am, where do I come from and why I am doing this.
I was born in Kalimpong which is a quaint city situated in the Himalayan foothills of West Bengal and moved to the sprawling city Guwahati that is located in the state of Assam after getting married. However, my life is not limited to just being from someplace to shifting to other, it’s big and I hope you may want to know more about me.
Who am I?
Wishing is one side and winning is on the another… the journey to shifting from keep dreaming to working for it is what I call life. I always wanted to see tons of dreams come true but I knew, it wouldn’t be possible without confidence, self-esteem, and hard work. So, I always feel confident and happy in whatever I do and this is exactly what I want other people to incorporate into their lives: confidence and self-esteem.
There was always a voice deep inside me that said, ‘ YES’, I can turn my dreams into reality and make a difference in this world.’ I believed in doing the right thing and the rest would follow.
Just like everyone else out there, I wasn’t that positive always. The Incident of being blown away with unanswered questions, self-doubts, and undefined emotions changed my thinking. When I was dealing with this, I came out strong as I realised who I am, what’s my self-worth, and trust me the answers were amazing. It was courage that roared inside me and made me feel “Yes, I will keep trying”.
Here I share 5 secrets that changed the way I used to think, behave, and live…
- I Am Unique: I started reminding myself that I am rare and possess many good qualities and things started changing.
- I Talk to Myself: I started turning negative self-talk into positive self-talk and the results were amazing.
- I Confront My Fear: I keep reminding myself that everyone has weaknesses, nobody is perfect and it helps me overcome my fears.
- I Trust Myself: There’s no-one who can trust you more than you, so I started believing in me and reminded myself all the wonderful things I’ve done.
- I Follow My Passion: Being helpful to other people is what I always wanted, so I followed my passion and things started falling in the right place.
