Day 1 – Quote Challenge: Tim Clark’s Wisdom

The Weekend is busy for me this time, as this guy has been nominated to do a few things. All fun. So, for starters I’ve been nominated by a fellow blogger for a quote challenge. To clear the air, here I have copied the rules.

The 3-Day Challenge rule book:

1. Thank the person who nominated you. [Thanks Mike Senczyszak – Solsbury Hill.]

2. Post for 3 days (not necessarily in a row)

3. 3 quotes per day

4. 3 new Bloggers nominated each day โ€“ link to their sites

5. Notify your 3 picks theyโ€™ve been tagged

Done!

I wanted to do this in a refreshing way. So, I have decided to quote the people I meet/talk/read and learn from.  Day One is dedicated to one such person. Let’s start with the CEO of “Life, Explained”, Tim Clark. Here’s some of his wisdom:

1. About his blogs!

I have been blogging for several years, and have a string of successful blogs. If success is defined as doing something that makes you happy, mine are a smash hit.

Excerpt from his guest post on Adele Archer’s blog.

Love what you do, find happiness in the little things, and you’re successful. Everything else you may earn is a bonus.

2. On evolving Internet, and what he has learned, and all of us should too.

I have more friends now than ever in my life, and most of them I have never met. They are scattered from New York, to New Hampshire, to Germany, to Great Britain, to Kuwait, New Zealand, India, all over the place. It has made me a better person, it has made me understand there are more things that unite us than anybody in power wants to admit. And it should be shouted from the mountain.

Excerpt from his post on Life Explains Aging

The person that Tim Clark is.

3. This world today:

We live in a world filled with madness, hate, bigotry. We are awash in terrible weapons of unimaginable destructive power. We can never use them. We can never eliminate them. And we keep telling ourselves that those two statements somehow make sense together. That we can control ourselves, and each other, enough to keep playing.

Excerpt from his blog Life Explains The End

From knowing him over an year now, I can say Mr. Tim Clark is a person with a lot of gratitude, humbleness, trying to spread happiness. However, it won’t stop him from being honest about the current state of our existence. I have a lot of choices to quote. I continue to meet awesome people, I choose Tim for the first day for always being inspiring, and for lots of #WednesdayWisdom.

I will nominate 1 blogger a day only to avoid Spamming, the person whose words make this post worth reading, so my nomination.

1. Tim Clark – Life, explained

See you everyone, soon with quotes, and much more. Thank you!

101 Reasons you should follow me on Twitter

LOOK filling up a blog post with 101 reasons is a great task, and so is reading it. I wouldn’t want to waste your time. You should follow me on any social media, but for now 101 reasons to follow me (@RahulSingh_I) on Twitter. The reasons are:

1. The most obvious “I Follow back.”

2. I Tweet. Not a good enough reason? Well, people love to un-follow inactive accounts. So, It’s not too bad reasoning. If that’s not enough…

3. I retweet. If you look at my account you’ll find out that I RT good tweets, and actually anything that interests me.

4. If RT-ing is a reason. “Heart-ing” or “liking” should be too. Especially, if I like you. I favourite almost everything.

5. I don’t send automated DMs. If you’re on Twitter, and don’t thank me for not acting a robot. You aren’t active enough.

6. I won’t share Instagram images on Twitter. Heck, I don’t have an Instagram account.

7. I don’t share a blog post more than once. If you don’t want to read my writings, you just need to ignore once. Like a second, and the post won’t haunt you ever again. I won’t mind that as well. Plus, there’s a fair chance that following me for years, you might never see a blog post of mine. Twitter’s too quick, too much happening, always.

8. I don’t tweet about politics. Is that a plus? Okay. 

[Update: Occasionally, I may do a tweet on politics, but still politics ain’t my topic.]

9. I don’t follow any politician besides whoever is the President or PM of India. Out of respect.

10. I don’t tweet about Kim Kardashian.

11. I ignore really horrible tweets such as this:

Link? Error 404: I just told you I ignore them.

12. Neither do I RT something like this..

13. Nor anything like this.. I would not want to risk tweeting or RT-ing something that asks me to try to beat up a man build like a Tank. You shouldn’t too. Follow me for this million dollar advice for free.

14. Nor this…

I tweeted this myself. Why God why?

15. Nor this.. (I didn’t RT this, but quoted it. Ain’t this tweet cool?)

16. I will tweet with the coolest GIFs soon..

17. I don’t follow “News Anchors”.

18. I have blocked a famous politician on Twitter. No names, but that’s a moral achievement. I get to mute a politician. WOW. I should be followed for doing this.

19. I find the best inspirational quotes. Though that’s not too hard.

20. I RT tweets with the coolest facts and tips.

21. I have over 1600 cool people following me. So you can too. Okay, I’m not bragging too much, that’s just because I Follow back.

22. I won’t unfollow you unless you’re tweeting objectionable content.

23. I don’t block people, unless you’re here to insult a “nation” or “race”.

24. Again, I tweet a lot, but I won’t irritate you. Really, promise. Kind of.

25. Just follow me so you can wish me a happy birthday on 22nd May every year (Honestly, I have a birthday that falls on May 22 every year. Isn’t that amazing?).

26. I reply to every non automated message.

27. If you’re a blogger or do anything content related, I will see, read and RT your stuff.

28. I don’t make unnecessary jokes. I can come up with a reason for everything I vomit. The reason is because I overate. See.. vomit, overeating. Okay, sorry. Next..

29. My Twitter is the door to a great brain. It’s the reflection of everything that goes in my head. It must be a privilege to read my thoughts in 140 characters or less. Should it be?

30. I contribute to trends. I can come up with something for any hash-tag. Ain’t I cool?

31. Example for Point 30.

32. And another..

Nobody RT’d this tweet

33. Me at my best. I have rocking advices.

34. The way I translate…

35. I’m the height of being optimistic and defy the rules. Okay.

36. If you’ve ever wanted people to ask questions. I’m your guy.

37. I don’t do sponsored tweets..

38. Never will I tweet something like this.. again

38. As weird as I can be, I’m no more a teen. So, I won’t be making “The world s*cks” tweets. I pledge:

39. I know who Muhammad Ali was IS.

Not giving a link to the profile here, but a girl tweeted that Ali was a great footballer, better than Ronaldo and Messi. She got more than 8K RTs for this. Later she claimed to confuse Ali with Pele. All this when the world was paying tributes to the legend.

40. I never bother myself with being part of “#IStandWith__” movements. People should understand that everyone is equal before the law. No matter how well they sing, how cute they look, or how much people love ’em.

41. I may crack a joke on you, but only to cheer you up, or if I know you well.

Again, 22nd May… every year.

Read, and share.. Not just on Twitter. Thank you.

Knowing it’s time to CHANGE…

Time – it always goes on, and everything changes with time, but it’s not “TIME” that causes the change, rather one’s actions that do.

You (the reader) must have gone through different phases in your life. I know that’s a stupid statement. Of course, any person goes through the ups and downs life has to offer. No matter how hard one tries, the mind is a mess. We can pretend about “living in the present” all we want, but both “worries of the future” and “stories of the past” do get a place in our lives. The successful possibly don’t let these thoughts affect their inner peace and not affect their work. On the flip side, ones struggling as me just can’t always let the thoughts not overpower the present. Again, that’s an assumption.

I’ve never been depressed. Never have wanted to kill myself, never thought of giving up on my passion. Rather, I’ve learned to deal with failures, keep a sense of humour, and be thankful for everything I have been gifted. The recent post “Seriously struggling” was actually meant to be serious rather than the mess it turned out. However, I was confused on what I needed to be serious about, hence it panned out the way it did.

CHANGE – I know the answer now, change is the answer. Recently, I’ve been trying to change. Be different. Think different. Act different. When you want to change the output, you must change the input. Personally, on a “work satisfaction” level, the past year has easily been the worst in my life. Life’s pace has taken a step down, and that has for the first time has got Rahul worried (keep this a secret, please). 2016 has been worrisome, not because I haven’t become a millionaire, but because I haven’t improved in any way from where and what I was in 2015. If not, my confidence has taken a hit, but then those around me thought it to be over confidence. So, maybe being more cautious ain’t all that bad.

What should Rahul do, now? If you think I’m going to say something revolutionary about CHANGE here. I have one word for you – “SORRY”. I know it’s time to do things differently, but am yet to figure out what exactly all I say mean.

Leave daily life aside. I thought of changing the way I present myself on social platforms. Act professional. Not make unnecessary jokes. I tweeted:

Starting over was given a thought as well, but that meant loosing out on people I’ve gained in the last year. So, that thought was let pass through. Try to act what I’m not doesn’t work either, if you know what I mean.

At the end, there’s just one solution I seem to have. Finding my way, that reflects myself, and spreads my word. I know saying this is a let down after the long build up, but this blog is more so the LIVE interpretation of the thoughts that fill my mind rather than anything else. For present, I’m confused, just like this post, but then I have a book coming through sooner than later, and that fills me with excitement.

The last word: This is a message to all of ’em that read my posts. Most of you being writers and bloggers yourselves know the importance and happiness of being read. My readership has been on the way down ever since 2016 hit shores, but thankfully some of you for some reasons have kept reading. I have got something to say to you: Thank you.
