1: Awareness

Frequently we do these social examinations without acknowledging we’re doing it. It’s a characteristic demonstration, he assumes, and therefore it’s something that is managed without cognizance. So the arrangement is to wind up noticeably cognizant — convey these considerations to the bleeding edge of your awareness by being watchful for them. In the event that you concentrate on these contemplations for a couple of days, it gets considerably simpler with training, and soon it’ll be hard not to take note.

2: Stop Yourself

When you understand you’re doing these examinations, give yourself a respite. Try not to scold yourself or feel awful — simply recognize the idea, and tenderly change center.

3: Count Your Blessings

The Centre of Attention is on what you do have, on what you are now honored with. Check what you have, not what you don’t. Consider that you are so fortunate to have what you have, to have the general population in your life who think about you, to be alive by any means.

4: Focus on Your Strengths

Rather than taking a gander at your shortcomings, ask yourself what your qualities are. Commend them! Be glad for them. Try not to gloat, yet like them and work on utilizing them further bolstering your best good fortune.

5: Be OK with Imperfection

Nobody is impeccable — mentally, we as a whole realize that however sincerely we appear to feel awful when we don’t achieve flawlessness. You aren’t flawless and you never will be. I positively am not, and I’ve figured out how to approve of that. Without a doubt, continue endeavoring to enhance, yet don’t think you’ll ever be the “ideal individual”. In the event that you take a gander at it in an unexpected way, that defect is the thing that makes you and your identity; you as of now are great.

6: Don’t Knock Others Down

Once in a while, we attempt to censure others just to improve ourselves look or feel. Bringing another person down for your advantage is dangerous. It frames an adversary when you could shape a companion. At last, that damages you as well. Rather, attempt to help others in their prosperity — that will prompt more accomplishment on your part.

7: Focus on The Journey

Try not to concentrate on how you rank in contrast with others — life isn’t an opposition. It’s an excursion. We are all on a voyage, to discover something, to end up something, to learn, to make. That trip has nothing to do with how well other individuals are getting along, or what they have. It has an inseparable tie to what we need to do, and where we need to go. That is all you have to stress over.

8: Learn to Love Enough

On the off chance that you generally need what others have, you will never have enough. You will dependably need more. That is an interminable cycle, and it will never prompt bliss. Regardless of what number of garments you purchase, regardless of what number of houses you possess (seven, on account of one well-known competitor), regardless of what number of favor autos you gain … you’ll never have enough. Rather, figure out how to understand that what you have is as of now enough. On the off chance that you have a shield over your head, nourishment on the table, garments on your back, and individuals who adore you, you are honored. You have enough. Anything you have far beyond that — and how about we concede that every one of us perusing this blog has more than that — is all that anyone could need. Be great with that, and you’ll discover satisfaction.

We often entangle ourselves into the realm of comparisons.  In reality, we are sort of demolishing our own boundaries.  We all say or sometimes yell too that we want space but in a nutshell, who are we cheating? If we really need space and we want others to realize that we have boundaries that we want to be respected and not violated, then there is a lot of hard work that needs to be done.  They say, ‘Justice delayed is justice denied.  How come we expect others to do justice if we can’t do justice to ourselves?  Every human being is a composition of a number of traits.  These can be related to our emotions, psyche, and self as well.  Since we are famous because of being complex entities; we ought to know that the very essence of our existence resides in our self, our true nature, and our instincts.  What we demand from others has a lot to do with what we demand from ourselves.  Our view about ourselves, others, and the world are what makes it all so complex since we have to carefully assimilate the information we extract from the three sources because that is what creates a thought in our head.  This thought is what ignites our emotions and makes us vulnerable towards projecting behaviors.  The consequences we face at the hands of our thoughts are what we need to understand first!
