Dussehra is the festival of victory of lord Rama over Ravana. It is a major Hindu festival celebrated at the end of Navratri. The festival marks the victory of goodness over the evil deeds. Lord Rama defeated 10 headed Ravana who abducted lord Sita, lord Rama’s wife millions of years ago.
We have heard this story several times. Let’s discuss modern days Ravana, or things we should improve in our life to make it better and worthy. The festival of Dussehra is approaching. So let everyone of us take pledge to take out our inner Ravana. In this article, I will discuss 7 Ravana of modern days.
We generally talk about stress, but psychology says that there are two types of stress. The first is distress and the second is eustress. Distress will result in negative outcomes but eustress results in a positive outcome. You need to identify how the stress you are facing is affecting your life. If it results in positive outcomes then you should try to work on relaxing your mind. If it results in negative outcomes then you must find alternative ways of getting rid of it.
Jealousy is one of the reasons that people are highly stressed. They are jealous of the success, income, and standard of living of others. The mindset of people is only restricted to getting ahead of their competitors. This type of mentality can only lead to this satisfaction and depression. Rather you should set yourself to be your competitor instead of setting someone else as your competitor.
Greed for money
Greed for money has ruined millions of lives. There are numerous cases of people killing others just for money. We should understand that the primary objective of money is to fulfill our basic necessities like food, clothing, and shelter. We should avoid the greed of luxury life and focus on making authentic ways of making money.
We enjoy criticizing others and never think of the things lacking in us. It is better to listen to the people who criticize you and try to improve yourself. Keeping your eyes and ears open for honest feedback will help you improve and survive in long run and you will never fall into the trap of jealousy and stress.
Negativity or having negative feelings is extremely bad for us. It insists that we cannot do a particular task despite having the capability to do it. You must have heard about the law of attraction which says that whatever we think happens. If you think in a negative way negative things will happen. So we should focus on positivity instead of negativity.
Hated is the feeling that we generally have towards our own friends and relatives instead of strangers. The feeling creates negative thoughts about an individual despite doing positive things.
Focusing on weaknesses
We tends to focus mainly on our weaknesses more than the strengths. The word we generally say is “I can’t”. Instead of focusing on “I can’t” we should focus on “I can”.
