A little disclaimer before we begin. This beginner’s guide is not for the traditional Indian wedding with the traditional desi attire.
Most people believe that only women turn to bridezillas or zombie vampires as they fuss over every aspect of the wedding especially the way they look, whether it is their own wedding, their best friend’s, office colleague’s, relatives near or distant or they are just a plus one. But this belief does not imply that the men get a get-out-of-jail free card and are let off the hook to DRESS and behave as they please.
Men too require to plan their ensemble depending upon the location, venue, and theme of the wedding and their relationship to the happy couple. Of course the general tone is formal but still it is better to consider all scenarios while preparing.
Confused. This is because the Groom and his guys in the wedding party are generallyDRESSED in a Tux. It is like girls can not wear white to the wedding. The bride should be the only one wearing it. Same rules apply here. Go for a formal suit instead. It would be really cool if you can enquire in advance what colors the wedding party is sporting on the wedding day and avoid those too.
Avoid joggers too. I am sure you can stay without them for a day. However athletic or fitness freak you are abstain from flaunting it. Even runaway brides are DRESSED elegantly.
The monochrome look is a classic but all black is best reserved for funerals and other grave occasions. It is a wedding for heaven’s sake, lighten up and add a dash of color to make your monochrome look pop.
Traveling has been on my mind for months. Being able to change locations and live somewhere else around the world is life changing. People that travel often have a lot to say about it, traveling is one of the best feelings. Now that there is social media people are able to see travelers from around the world show their experiences to millions of people. Most people spend half of their life traveling and working at the same time, being able to do this in this day of age is amazing and I feel that more people should start traveling more frequently. A few months ago I started considering traveling soon. I have been in California my whole life and the only place that I have been out of state is Las Vegas, but I live in Southern California so going to Las Vegas and back isn’t quite the adventure that I’m looking for.
Places That I Want To Visit
Japan has been on my list for a while, actually ever since I was a kid I had always wanted to visit Japan. The culture is amazing to me and I’d love to be a tourist one day in Tokyo, I had many friends that have been there and they always tell me that it’s one of the greatest experiences they had.
London, United Kingdom
Growing up, I watched a lot of tv shows based in London which made me fall in love with the UK. Traveling around the UK has always been a place that I knew for sure that I would love to visit in the near future.
Visiting other countries around the world is something that I really have a desire to do. Many of my friends and family have traveled, I don’t think that it would be long until I will be able to start traveling and really getting a chance to see and experience the world and learn new things!
Have you ever wanted to travel is traveling?

Both old school wisdom and modern day science say that optimism is one of the greatest indicators of how successful you’ll be. This is supported by scientific research which found evidence that optimistic people do enjoy a higher quality of life when compared to pessimists. The study highlighted that optimism promoted a healthier lifestyle, greater flexibility, and better problem-solving capacities.
Let’s try to discover what being optimistic means and what optimistic people do differently.
Life has its ups and downs. It can be a fun ride, but you also have some awful stuff happening in life. There is, however, a group of people that stands solid as a rock, no matter how tough it gets. Optimists. They get back up on their feet after each failure and tell you with a smile on their face, “it wasn’t that bad, was it?”
An optimistic person sees the glass as half-full rather than half empty. And in situations in which life gives them lemons they always have sugar, water, and salt at hand to make lemonade. Being optimistic can have a profound impact not only on your view of life in general but also your physical and mental health.
Studies are showing that in the long run, having a positive outlook on life will make you happier, healthier, and wealthier while raising your quality of life. It’s key!
Positive psychologist Martin Seligman says “Habits of thinking need not be forever. One of the most significant findings in psychology in the last twenty years is that individuals can choose the way they think.”
Another positive psychologist Sonja Lyubomirsky says “All that is required to become an optimist is to have the goal and to practice it. The more you rehearse optimistic thoughts, the more ‘natural’ and ‘ingrained’ they will become. With time they will be part of you, and you will have made yourself into an altogether different person.”
Studies published in the Journal of Abnormal Psychology suggest that positive and negative attitudes might be hardwired into our brains. The researchers found a brain marker that distinguishes negative thinkers from positive thinkers. That’s good news for optimists, but what about the other people out there who swing to opposite end of the attitude continuum? Are pessimists doomed to negative thinking, worry, and anxiety forever?
Fortunately, the answer is no, and if you do tend toward pessimism, there are plenty of inspiring reasons to work on creating a more optimistic attitude. Optimists do better in almost all areas of life.
Reframe your frustrations.Researchers at the University of Kent in England found that people who strived to see the positive side of things that went wrong — rather than venting to friends about what went wrong, or blaming themselves for small failures — were happier and more satisfied at the end of the day.
“If you didn’t get that promotion or you failed an exam or a relationship disintegrated, what can you learn from it? Failure can be a huge gift,” Lombardo says.
Just say “om.” Recent research suggests that people who meditate daily have more positive emotions than those who don’t. Mindful meditation works just as well, says Richard O’Connor, Ph.D.
Look for inspiration. there are several ways you can surround yourself with inspiration, such as spending time with smiling babies, or reading inspirational books,encouragement quotes, and affirmation.
Inspire yourself with a smile. If you expect the worst, the worst will happen. If you let things bother you, they will. But if you smile, you’ll feel better. Studies have shown that putting a cheerful smile on your face can trigger a part of your brain that actually makes you feel happier and more optimistic about the present and future.
Give love, receive love. Love is the greatest force in the universe. It’s a treasure that people would give anything for, yet it costs nothing to give and receive. There is an endless supply, and it can be extended to family, friends, and strangers at any moment. It increases positivity and acts like a shield against negativity. It forgives, heals, encourages and inspires.
Be Grateful. There is always something you can be grateful for, so acknowledge it, say it out loud. My favorite is “thank you for my breath”

The more you are aware of your negative reactions, the more frequently you change to more positive thinking, and the more you look to surround yourself with inspiration, the more optimistic your life will be. Once you are in this more positive frame of mind, the easier it is to make the decision to live a fuller life—one with more fun, more joy, more excitement, and more adventure.
The lives of successful people are a direct result of the conscious choices they make and efforts they put into it. Successful people always seem to have their act together but you must know that success is not limited to race, IQ, or the size of your bank account. It is based on your goals and aspirations for your life and the way and manner you intend to achieve it. There are certain habits that average people eschew, but successful people consciously indulge in.
Waking up early isn’t an easy habit to cultivate, but I will suggest you find a “no-mercy alarm clock” with a ring tone that will most surely pop your sleepy eyes wide open. Don’t hit snooze. Hitting the snooze
Button and going back to sleep for 5-10 minutes will make you feel worse. Hal Elrod, author of The Miracle Morning, suggests writing your plans for the next day. The first task listed should get you excited enough to part with your comfy bed. The easiest way to wake up early? SLEEP EARLY.
Yes, exercise keeps you fit and it also keeps your brain healthy. It minimizes stress, and improves memory. In fact, using ‘too much work’ as an excuse not to exercise is counterproductive. Studies show that exercise can boost creativity and productivity by as much as two hours. It makes you smarter and your outward look becomes smoking hot.
Not only do successful people have crystal clear short and long-term goals, they also know exactly what they must accomplish each day to feel fulfilled as well as bring them closer to their goals. They take full advantage of the “ Golden Hour” which is the first hour after you wake up in the morning. What you do mentally, physically, and spiritually during this first hour, sets the tone for the entire day.
People used to think book nerds are losers, but now we know they are the ones that actually rule the world. Mark Cuban insists on reading 3 hours a day, while Bill Gates reads for 1 hour as part of his bedtime routine. J.K Rowling, the first ever billionaire author, read ‘absolutely anything’ as a child. President Obama, Sheryl Sandberg, and Albert Einstein are book lovers, too. Reading helps you learn from the mistakes and successes of others. Instead of just diving in; relying on your guts and motivation to lead you, reading gives you a mental map to bypass certain mistakes people make in life.
Everyone sees through eyes of personal life experience and individual interpretation. As such, successful people understand that when someone makes a judgment about you or your life, it doesn’t make it a reality unless you agree with it.
This knowledge makes Successful people to not base their worth on how others think of them because they have consciously set their own values, goals, and principles without having to depend on anyone’s judgment to validate them. Successful people are dead to the comments of men.
What exactly separates professionals from wannabes? Pros work, even when they don’t feel like it.
E.B. White, author of Charlotte’s Web, famously said, “A writer who waits for ideal conditions under which to work will die without putting a word on paper.” That applies to us all, irrespective of our field.
Next time you don’t feel like working, keep calm and force yourself to work for the subsequent 15 minutes then see what happens. Usually, those 15 minutes will be enough to give you some momentum. If that doesn’t work, try 30 minutes breaking down the task into its basic components, and then do the items one at a time until you finish the whole task.
The problem with focusing on perfection is that, you become so consumed in fishing out imperfections that you will have little or nothing to show for at the end of the day except unfinished, imperfect work. You have to understand that it’s not about achieving one perfect goal. It is about the skills you develop along the way and the constant improvements you are making while living a life of accomplishments. So it’s better to go about it in a progressive manner while keeping your eyes on the goal.
Successful people surround themselves with other positive and proactive people who inspire them to achieve great things. Human beings release energy and as such, it’s easy to absorb negative energy when you are around toxic people who are always complaining, procrastinating, making excuses and getting jealous of those making progress in life.
Meditation improves your ability to focus instead of getting overwhelmed with everything that’s happening around you. It is being suggested by experts that meditation alleviates anxiety and pain. Sometimes, quieting the mind doesn’t come naturally to many of us. So for beginners, you can create the habit of meditating by concentrating on your breath for 3-5 minutes. It works.
Successful people are proactive – they get things done. When they realize unforeseen forces may want to interrupt their flow, successful people take full responsibility for their attitude in such situations over which they have no control. They look forward to the pleasure and benefits of accomplishing their daily tasks and life goals and they do whatever it takes to avoid giving up success. To successful people,excuses are useless.
Successful people allot time to give back to their community by working with charities, volunteering and donating. Bill Gates, Oprah Winfrey, Mark Zuckerberg and others, all donate to different causes. You dont have to be that rich, you can volunteer at your local church, at your community, at the nursing home, or just teach kids to read. In many instances, your time and the pleasure of your company is more than enough.
Successful people don’t entertain self-defeating negative thoughts. When faced with difficulties, they’re quick to identify the positive side of the experience and remind themselves that they’ve successfully overcome many hurdles before, so they can certainly overcome it again. Successful people accept these bumps as opportunities to learn, grow, and become better for a bigger win ahead! They know that no matter how many times you’re knocked down, as long as you get right back up and use your new found strength and knowledge to improve, you haven’t really failed.
The sky is big enough for everyone to fly, successful people believe that there is enough supply of “wins” for everyone. If another person succeeds at something they have not yet been able to achieve, successful people appreciate and congratulate them on their win and see it as another motivation for them to reach that goal too.
Don’t try to apply all these habits at once. Work on your new habits daily and progressively and in two weeks, you’ll have a long chain showing your progress. This will motivate you to keep going on. Pick the easiest habit for you, and then practice it consistently for 3-6 months until it becomes a natural part of your routine. Remember, Rome was not built in a day. Use the first easy habit as a stepping-stone to propel you into the next one on the list!
