It happens with all of us that a certain phase of life we feel stuck and don’t know what to do. Then you need to discuss your concern with a good wisher and also do some contemplation. It is not difficult to be an achiever in life, only you need to remain focused.

Here we share a list of 11 best tips for achieving anything you want in life.

1. Focus on commitment.

Always keep an eye on how committed you are towards your goal. How significant is it for you, and what could you sacrifice to achieve it? If you are completely committed, motivation will happen.

2. Make your journey a fun.

When you get serious about it, you might get emotionally laden and this might lower your morale. So keep it fun and don’t get overly serious.

3. Seek knowledge.

If your focus is on learning, discovering, enhancing, and experimenting, your motivation will always be high. If you focus only on results, your motivation will be shaky. Let the key to success be your focus on the journey, not the destination.

4. Get rid of detoriating thoughts.

You know that thoughts influence feelings and feelings determine our work. You must have several ongoing thoughts in your head, and you have a choice on which one to focus: the ones that will make you stuck emotionally (fears, grief, doubts) or the ones that will motivate you to move forward (excitement, trying new things, experimenting, stepping out of comfort zone).

5. Don’t be afraid of failure

Yes, this is very essential. Remember failure doesn’t mean the end of the road but a time to make new plans and define new routes towards success.

6. Be Imaginative.

Once you get rid of negative thoughts you need to be imaginative. It’s a matter of imagination that when you think positive or negative, the same way your work gets influenced.

7. Avoid distractions.

Remain focused and avoid distractions; this is very important. Make a list of things where you happen to waste your time and hold yourself responsible, to not repeat them.

8. Never rely on others.

You should never have expectations that others will do it for you, not even your friend, partner or boss. They have their own needs and are all busy. None can make you achieve our goals, but only you.

9. Do not be always be nice to yourself.

Motivation leads to action and action brings results. Sometimes your actions might demand to put you in a difficult situation. You need to wait for the perfect time, an opportunity when you get decorating thoughts. There you need to change your perspective, challenge yourself, do something which you don’t like or have fear related to it.

10. Make Plans.

You should have proper plans ready. Fill your weekly calendar with important to-do lists and stick by them. Schedule with practical insights.

11. Protect yourself from getting overly exhausted.

When you are motivated, the chance is that you might overdo so you need to recognize the signs of tiredness, if any and take time to rest. Relaxation is a must and that would help you work towards your achievement with vigor. You can switch locations. Meditate, or do deep breathing exercises, close your eyes, or with open eyes focus on one thing for about five minutes.

Always remember it’s not only who feels less motivated, this happens with everyone even the biggest stars, richest businessmen or the most accomplished professionals, get lost sometimes. But what makes them move towards their goal is curiosity and determination.

With this, we conclude.

With our increased and dangerous relationship with technology, most importantly the smartphones have quite badly affected consequences in our love stories, family life, work, leisure time and health. Here we discuss the deadly consequences of our association with our phones.

 Know The Unnoticed Problems With Our Smartphones:

1. Get Addicted

Our addiction to our phones is not as simple as it sounds. It has darker consequences as well. Owing to our phones, we might find ourselves uneasy to sit alone in a room with our own thoughts playing in our minds, which dare to wander into the past and the future, and allow ourselves to feel some pain, smile at our desires, and regret some decisions and get the excitement over a few.

2. Dating

With digitalization now, people hook up easily and get separated at the slightest arising of differences. We judge people in comparison to people whom we never met. Of course, every person is not perfect and hence we continue our searches to find the perfect person.

There can be no right person and compatibility is an achievement towards love, somewhat its precondition. But with phone friendship with various options available at hand; we tend to get upset and distance with slightest differences with our expectations.

3. Phones and our relationships

We all love family life and are very keen and devoted to relationships. The wonderful feelings have a mix of awkward and frustrating things as well. The partner might not be ideally sympathetic or family is quite conflicted. Our phone is but docile, very responsive to our touch, always with us and does whatever we want.

In the process, we happen to near our phone and get distance from our family.

4. Miss Some Beauty From Life

Our phones deliver us many things but without our notice, it tends to separate us from the world pleasures like:

  • The soothing distance sound of traffic
  • Watch moss on an old stone wall
  • Pleasure of feeling tired after hard work
  • Watch clouds slowly drifting across the sky
  • The hesitance of someone’s shy smile

5. The Dream of being ‘liked’

Every one of us wants to be “Liked”. The momentary excitements when we get a message aren’t ridiculous. There is some hope that our troubles and joys will be understood by others; and that all the messages we send to the world would be received and understood, at least by someone. We must not be afraid by our loneliness.

Loneliness is essential when it allows us to have conversations with self and give us a character. We don’t just tend to think like everyone; we have unique viewpoints.

6. Selfies

The problem with selfies is that we don’t take them with seriousness. Actually, selfies are not that silly or self-regarding, but they belong to the grand traditions of high art called the self-portrait. Although Rembrandt was addicted to making self-images he never showed himself winking or making any funny hand gestures. Instead, he looked closely at who he was and what he had become: reflect the sadness that slowly accumulated in his own face, trying to find out of what he really made of being alive or what life did to him. What has he done with his time on earth? He was not seeking approval of others; he was trying to seek self-knowledge.

The art of a selfie might have a long way to go.

With this, we conclude. It seems though we live in the world of technologies with great smartphones we haven’t yet mad the best use of them every time which would benefit us in any way.

We often come across contents which go viral on the internet. Content marketing helps your business but you don’t know how to do viral marketing? You must wonder what makes content viral! Here we share with you some secrets or you could say some content strategy that would help you to create the next viral content as well.

What is viral content?

Viral content could be an article, an image or a video which spreads rapidly online through links and social sharing.

How some contents go viral?

A difficult question, but there are some people who can create contagious content several times.

What is their secret? What do they know different from others?

Yes, they know something different!

They might not be aware of it, but they know how to engage huge traffic on the internet without any fail.

If you are unaware of their secrets, well keep reading this blog to master yourself in creating viral contents.

What Makes Content Viral?

Jonah Berge, an assistant professor of marketing at Wharton School of Business, specializes in discovering what makes ideas and products viral.

Most recently, Jonah Berger did co-author a research paper with Katy Milkman titled “What Makes Online Content Go Viral?” and there they shared insights which you can’t overlook.

Here are the highlights:

  1. Positive contents go more viral than negative contents.
  2. Content that evokes emotions either positive or negative goes viral compared to content without emotions. Like awe, anxiety, anger, or anything related to the fear of loss.
  3. Useful contents get shared.

(People often shares practically beneficial contents to help their fans and friends)

How to Design Content That Goes Viral?

The question next is how to create such contents?

Remember that positive content always gets shared. Always remember that there are a lot of unhappy people in the world, with different reasons for being unhappy, content which is uplifting and inspirational help people get out of their sorry state even if it’s only for a few seconds.

If you are looking to generate traffic for business purposes, you should focus on practically useful content that activates high arousal emotions.

How to make content appear practical? What to include in content and what not?

How to create useful content?

After writing an article, and finishing with the editing process, it’s not over. One final step is yet left.

Read the content, find out the next actions you want people to take, and complete your article with a section that says people to initiate those steps.

Psychologists say that people are not good at applying broad concepts to their own lives. It’s why people rely on 80/20 rules, but rarely use it in their lives and business.

You tell your readers exactly how to use the content you gave them in their lives. And what happens next? They use it, get a good result and remember you forever.

What’s a high-arousal emotion?

For beginners, a high arousal emotion can be either positive or negative (either types work). It could be awe, anger, fear, anxiety, joy, lust, and of course, surprise.

How to activate those emotions?

There are 7 High-Arousal Emotions Which Can Make Your Content Contagious

1. Happiness

Several things make people happy. It can be something funny, inspiring, or anything which is positively uplifting.

Try telling stories from life yours or someone else you know, people can very well relate.

2. Awe

Something that is remarkable. Something people can’t resist commenting about. This could be in form of a story, a real-life event, or it can also be an exhaustive list of 101 links to useful resources.

3. Anxiety

People don’t like anxiety. If your content talks about losing out on something, that is one way. People don’t like losing things they possess.

4. Fear

Fear is the biggest motivators on Earth. People can’t resist action when motivated by fear.

You can make people worry about your content about the mistakes they make and are unaware of. You can also write about the fear of loss or limited quantities.

5. Anger

When you annoy people, they’ll work hard to get justice. They’ll discuss it on Twitter, write blog posts, and much more.

How to trigger anger? You have to challenge someone’s beliefs and it’s sure to bait.

6. Lust

People have several lusts. They can lust for money, results, men, women, or anything. To target that, you need to tantalize your readers with positive results.

7. Surprise

Your content can challenge assumptions, to prove them wrong. You can share new ideas or results of unique tested ways.

Moreover, you have to remember two things:

If you want to do viral content marketing for your business website, ensure that you show the people ways to implement your words. Be sure to exemplify your writing with what steps to follow next.

And don’t write for the sake of writing but try to raise high arousal emotions and get your content shared.

So next time you write a new content, remember the above points and remember us for your contents for being viral.

List of some viral content sites

Buzzfeed is the undefeated leader in volumes. But if you are concerned about engagement (shares per post, etc.) then Playbuzz, Boredpanda & EliteDaily performs well as well.

Often individuals who struggle with depression, anxiety or have difficulty to regulate emotions hear from others that they need to be less sensitive or have control over emotions. But is it that easy to stop being emotional? Well, the fact is that learning to manage emotions is a complex set of skills which must be learned very much like learning to ride a bike.

Yes, one has to master the emotions!

There is a difference between mastering a bike and that of emotions. In the previous, you get an expert to guide you and in the latter case many times you are left to self.

Facing intense circumstances like loss of an important relationship, having a child, or developing anxiety and depression can challenge the emotion management skills that are innate to us and make us more vulnerable and we fail to manage emotions. Researcher and psychologist, Marsha Linehan, designed a series of steps with the help of which we can lessen our vulnerability to intense emotions. Dr. Linehan mentions them as the ‘ABCs’ of emotion regulation.

Gather Positive Emotions

Make doors for positive emotions.

One must purposely engage in activities which yield positive emotions and if you are aware of these emotions, it would help to balance the difficult and painful emotions you are experiencing.

Stop avoiding!

When situations go bitter, we tend to avoid engaging in activities which bring positive emotions. Accumulating Positive Emotions needs you to avoid avoiding and do things which make you feel good.

Embrace positive emotions.

While experiencing positive emotions you need to embrace the positive consequences and enjoy them wholeheartedly.

Always remember, while experiencing positive emotions, you have to avoid worrying.

Master your situation.

Create a feeling of being accomplished.

When we face negative emotions or tough circumstances, our self-confidence is quickly lost unless we desperately work to build activities into each day which would create a sense of accomplishment.

Make your goals achievable.

Activities of any size are small or big size, rather, attainable activities which you should involve. For instance, if you are a new mom, instead of attempting to clean the entire home, you might choose only to clean the toilet by putting cleaner in it after and once you do it, you will feel accomplished. It is essential to do things difficult but not impossible.

  • Credit yourself.
  • Always appreciate yourself.
  • Adapt ahead of time

Analyse ahead the challenging situations.

Owing to some changes around, if you can analyze that you are going to face some bad situations, work on your emotions to handle that phase. Life will become easy.

Make a plan to adapt.

After you have analyzed the potential situation, you need to create a plan. Think about how to cope with the situation and also the emotions that would be the consequence. If you can’t decide or get stuck while making your plan, you need to take an outside help maybe you discuss with your best friend.

Imagine success for yourself.

Once you have made your plans, you need to visualize yourself utilizing the plan successfully. Handle the situations skilfully and enjoy success with confidence.

Always keep habit to respond feared situations.

As you visualize handling a situation, try to cope it well and also address skilfully the situations you are afraid might occur.

Every problem comes with a multitude of solutions, only we need to change our focus from where we kept it longer.

Hope this article helps you in any mid-life crisis!

Why Instagram Marketing tips needed. Being today’s generation you must be heard about Instagram? Well if you are one among them who haven’t started with an Instagram account, this post on Instagram tips for beginners will definitely help you. What only started as the younger, immature sibling of Facebook where people would filter pictures only, now businesses adopted Instagram marketing as one of their major revenue-building tools! Today Instagram has more than 1 million advertisers and 8 million business profiles.

The question is who’s on Instagram?

According to HootSuite, maximum of Instagram users live in urban areas (32%), 28% of users live in the suburbs, and 18% of users in the country. Even the gender gap has widened as there are more women than men in Instagram.

Advertising on Instagram

While Insta was slow to give advertising privileges to all, nowadays if you have a business profile you can run an advertisement on Instagram.

Advertisers now have 4 ad options:

  • Photo Ads
  • Video Ads
  • Carousel ads
  • Stories Ads

Why Invest in Instagram Ads?

According to Instagram, 60% people said they discover new products there, and 75% Instagrammers take action once inspired by a post.

Also, know that Instagram uses Facebook’s demographic data to serve up ads to appropriate parties. This makes the tool quite valuable for advertisers to target a niche audience because; Facebook owns a good history and better demographic targeting options.

How much the Instagram ads cost?

The model used is based on CPM’s (cost per impressions). Though Insta ads receive much higher engagement than Facebook ads, it comes with a price. According to Keith Baumwald, as the ads are quite highly targeted you could end up paying about $5 a CPM. But one advantage is that the advertisers have a control over how their budgets are allocated.

Other measures to control your Insta ad spend are, setting your ad schedule, setting your ad delivery method, and setting your bid amount.

New Leaked Emails Claim Kangana-Ranbir Relationships http://forummantra.org/new-leaked-emails-claim-kangana-ranbir-relationships/ http://forummantra.org/new-leaked-emails-claim-kangana-ranbir-relationships/#respond Fri, 06 Oct 2017 11:25:01 +0000 http://forummantra.org/?p=969 It seems the Kangana- Hrithik fiasco is never ending and with pulling Ranbir within, the affair is getting muddier.

It seems the Kangana- Hrithik fiasco is never ending and with pulling Ranbir within, the affair is getting muddier. With the recent disclosing of the Roshan’s that the emails were not sent to Kangana by Hrithik, another controversy surfaced where another set of emails were released, dated August 25, 2014, there is a mention of “RK”, believed to be Ranbir Kapoor.

The e-mail has a mention about “Rangu” (Rangoli, Kangana’s sister) who wrote to Hrithik about Kangana being “friends with benefits” with a certain “RK”, which appears a reference to Ranbir. It appears, Rangoli was keen to see Kangana and Ranbir in a relationship as Kangana have been exchanging hostile emails with Hrithik, while Ranbir was very warm in nature.

According to the email, Ranbir never paid any attention to Kangana prior to Queen. However, everything changed when he saw her Queen’s performance. During Kangana’s stay at Gwalior during the shooting for Revolver Rani, Ranbir supposedly made a little straightforward approach and expressed interest in her, though she didn’t accept him as she was “in love” with someone else (Hrithik).

The e-mail also continues to say that Kangana later “asked him if he’d be interested in a physical relationship”, as a “regular relationship” was not possible as she was in love with someone else. Kangana mentioned that she’s can’t understand, why he got so annoyed as he was seeing kat as well.

Though it was not mentioned clearly that “RK” was Ranbir, the specific mention of “Kat” eliminates all the doubts. We all know that Ranbir and Katrina had a long-term relationship that ended finally.

Another interesting thing is that a source close to Kangana told Mumbai Mirror in March 2016 that when her relationship with Hrithik was not going good, a “young superstar” was trying to woo him. This happens to be the same report where the friend claimed the fact that Hrithik proposed to Kangana in Paris.

But it was perhaps Ranveer Singh who spoke about Ranbir’s ‘fondness’ for Kangana on a chat show where the two actors appeared together. Do you remember, when Karan Johar, asked Ranveer during rapid fire round, who he would want to set Ranbir up with, then he did not think twice before uttering Kangana’s name? And then Ranveer added,” “Fireworks. He loves it.”

Meanwhile to summarise what Hrithik has to say about the fiasco is that there was an alleged 7-year-long, passionate affair between two high profile celebrities but nothing exists as an exchange or any sort of proof to a romantic relationship. Yet it is to believe the other party because the diction is – Why would a girl lie!

So what do you think are these claims true in the emails? Or a forensic report would say they were sent by an imposter?

Though Kangana’s lawyer and her sister Rangoli hit back at the Krish actor, post his clarifications.

We conclude now, with a hope that this fiasco ends very soon with real conclusions.
