When you hear such news, what’s the first thought that comes to your mind? I always think or pharmaceuticals as big scammers… personal opinion. One of the reason being advertisment. Yes, advertisment!
I have traveled all over the world and one of the things to notice is marketing and advertisement. It’s a nice thing to see, you will find different flavor of marketing all over. It shows what people are inclined to buying in each country and area.
American TV advertising will show a lot of pharmaceuticals products. It’s funny, because I have never seen so many anti depressant being sold any where…So many medicines.
However, the first thing that came to mind when I heard about Pfizer was stocks. Did you know the CEO sold about 60% of Pfizer stocks when the news came out. After, listening to this, will you buy or sell the stocks?
Pharmaceuticals stocks are very volatile. So I am not too fond of Pharmaceutical stocks.
It’s in some people’s DNA to be negative about everything. I have seen it in my own home where certain individuals are not big on risk taking. There are certain underlying subjectivities there. For example, it could be just how they are raised, it could be lack of financial confidence, bad experience with taking risks and/or they are just not as driven and are comfortable with their situation.
I have always been driven in all aspect of reaching my objective and making things happen. In my personal growth, none of my achievements came through conventional routes. That means, I saw a lot of failure before I got to my success. I heard a lot of people say that I could not do it or make it. When you hear those criticisms, do yourself a favor, don’t react! Take that all in and improve. Say you will learn it and do better. Every rejection made me stronger.
Recently, I am coming across a lot of people who are just done with this pandamic, so much so that they are not even taking in the joy of the festive season. So what the season is not as joyful this year or not “normal” … deal with it! Make it with what you have!
Yes, people are so negative towards any change that they have a hard time of accepting and adopting to new change or new norm. If this is the new norm then make it fun with what you have! Literally, it is just your perspective at the end of the day. People in east Asia, die on the street begging for food. You get to be comfortable at home with your close ones, if not close ones then atleast you can buy a $5 sandwich which a ton of people cannot!
I absolutely don’t sympathize with people with negative nancy attitude! Please reflect and always try to see the situation in positive light.
If you are finding my financial and motivation content helpful, then please support me on my other platforms!! I would love to grow this community! Thanks so much for dropping by….
I have learned over the years that there is a lot community managment that is involved in keeping the engagement on your blogs/social media flowing. People are engaged when there is communication! I love that you all write comments and interact with me on my blogs. Honestly, I realized that actually helps so much for a creator to keep moving forward.
For example, on my blog of starting my YouTube channel, I received so much positive and encouraging comments. This shows that being real and vulnerbable with yoru readers builds a connection and creates a support system. I love hearing from your all and hearing your experiences.
If we don’t share our own journey, failures, and successes, other people will not be able to learn. That is exactly what I try to do with these blogs. I try to keep you all focussed and motivated for your own passions and goals. I want you to get to the lifestyle you are all striving to get to and I know you guys are doing a great job!
Thanks for showing me so much love and support! I hope to share more of journey as I take on more risks for my own personal growth!
What does it really take to look past your “stuck” situation right now? It takes experience of going through it a couple of times and then saying, okay I take ownership of my situation!
Acceptance is our keyword for today’s topic. It takes acceptances to move on or keep moving from any tough situation. It’s all perspective at the end of the day. You can see your current situation as glass half full or glass half empty. As in you can make your situation bad or worst.
I get it though, when you are in the situation where the entire environment is super negative, it’s hard to think positively. Mainly when anything you do leads to none of your goals. You start putting yourself down and telling yourself that you are just not good enough!
Yes, I go through that too! When there is too much pressure of work or let’s say I just take on too much to prove I am “good enough”… perfect example of jumbling my thoughts, and taking on too much than I can chew. That’s when anxiety hits.
What to do in those situations? Accept… accept that it will all end one day, and just like the person next to you, there will be an end to you. That means, there is no reason to hold on to these negative thoughts, all you can do is keep pushing and moving forward. Your situation will change eventually if you put in the work to make those small changes.
We make a mistake of always focussing on the end goal! However, life is simple. It’s about making smaller changes in your life to get those end results.
For example, I see a software engineer or a product manager making a certain amount of money and living an easy lifestyle. I can’t wake up tomorrow morning and hope that I am a software engineer / product manager. I need to make those changes / put in sacrifices to get to that level to achieve that lifestyle. There will be many road blocks! Many, many, many road blocks — the main point is, take breaks, but don’t stop!
You don’t see results right away, at least I haven’t but, 10 years later, you will look back and think that struggle was required!
Hello World, As you know I like learning about financial freedom. It’s not for everyone – yes, I laughed as I wrote that. I say that because, most people look at this motivators and always think how do I get that fancy, luxury, free money and then they actually want a short cut to it. …
Figure out how much money you are taking home and subtract the amount you are spending. Be sure to keep all that surplus money at work, by paying down high interest debt first and then investing the rest. Once the total value of all your investments reaches 25-30 times your annual spending, paid work is now …
Hello World, I don’t often speak about politics but, I hope you all read world news and are aware of what is happening around the world other than the pandamic. Farmers are the heart of India and a new bill is being passed to privatize farming. This will mean in the name of free market, …
Honestly, I don’t want to sound like, “I can handle it all!”… I am human. It does bother me. Negative feedback / criticism is impacts me. I think about it, I get anxiety from it. Something I can’t control…
But, what do you do when anxiety hits from a feedback or negative comment? What questions pop into your mind?
You step away from it…
Sustainability! Yes, for me it’s sustainability! Confidence is great! I have a lot of it but, can sometimes someone elses feedback can throw you off. That’s when you start feeling are you good enough?! So how do you shake that are you, “good enough” off? Take a hot shower, completely distract yourself and do something else that you love doing. Take a walk, paint, sing, go do an activity that you love doing. Come back and reflect!
Then come back and start working on the task that you are not so good at! Yes, people will have opinions, feedbacks, their perspective! Take it in, destress, and come back to the given task.
I couldn’t change my anxiety so over time I made any feedback that got to me a little, my strength! I started working towards it. I always try to out perform. Taking on the chanllenge has led me to become more stronger without even knowing it!
So just step away for a bit! de-clutter and come back to it and complete your task while, trying to get better at it!
Thanks for the love guys! I really love the support!
Hello World, Many people don’t actully budget or count pennies like I do. Few of you live pay cheque to pay cheque. It’s sad that many don’t even have a financial plan. All they know is that they have to earn more and that will pay their expenses. However, I think everyone should have retirement …
