Nobody Cares Work Harder

Red brick wall with live, work, create quote

Whenever you find yourself complaining about the difficulty of your job, remind yourself, “nobody cares, work harder.” After training your mind to work hard over many years, you start deriving pleasure from the process. Anyone would prefer to relax and not have to work for a living if they had the opportunity, but even then, happiness is not guaranteed. Hard work has the potential to bring you satisfaction which often translates into happiness. But you must balance your hard work with free time and leisure activities. If it’s all work but no play, then happiness will fly away.

Whenever you are experiencing those long grueling days at work, remind yourself that you are not the only one going through them. Happiness will be your reward before your turn off the lights at night. But you must enjoy what you do. This cannot be reiterated enough. If you went to college and are now working a job you dislike, somewhere along the way you made a mistake. Rather than continuing to devote the rest of your life to something you don’t enjoy, make a change today. You control your present which influences your future.

Nobody Cares Work Harder and Stop Complaining

A common mistake many people make is complaining a lot about their job. The complaints are endless and often quickly pile up. One of them is that their job or schoolwork is too difficult and demanding. Nobody cares work harder! People don’t care about the process; they are only impressed with the results. In reality, the results don’t matter that much. What matters is the hard work you clocked in for many years to achieve those results. Why don’t people care about your hard work? Because it’s not attractive. They don’t want to hear about your complaints. People want to see the fancy cars and flashy clothes that your hard work earned you.

Besides luck which cannot be depended on, the solution to getting impressive results in life is working harder. No one can put in the work for you; only you can do it. So stop complaining and work harder. Don’t forget to also keep your dreams alive. Dreams provide the sugar that keeps your work effort bitterly sweet. Without some occasional sugar, your hard work becomes dull. Don’t make the mistake of working hard without dreaming. I like to remind myself of this formula:

60% hard work + 40% dreams = 100% success

Keep Chasing Your Dreams

It’s Not All About Hard Work

Everything starts with your dreams and imagination. What’s the point of working hard if you don’t know why you’re working hard in the first place? What’s the point of endless hours of devotion if all that hard work is not aligned with your dreams? Do you even have dreams? If you’re stuck and don’t know where you’re headed, then start with your dreams. Keep chasing your dreams and you won’t regret the process looking back in the future.

Whenever you become down in life and hopeless that your future is over, remind yourself of your dreams. Allow your dreams to fill you with power, motivation and inspiration. Every time you feel derailed off your path to success, use your dreams to get you back on track. You’ll encounter many moments of discouragement, disappointments and even failures, but it’s how you get yourself back up that matters the most. Use your dreams as an anchor to prevent you from falling too many times; to prevent you from drowning.

Keep Chasing Your Dreams – There is No Other Option

A life without dreams is a life without substance. You can have the best job in the world, but if the process and experience are meaningless, then you’re likely lacking dreams. Keep in mind that a great job does not equate to a great dream. You can use your family, intelligence, education and connections to land a great job. But to land a great dream, you need to use your imagination. No human can provide you with that if you refuse to utilize that part of the brain to begin with.

Ok so you have a dream. Now what? The next important thing to remember is to never allow failures to throw you off course. We’ve all experienced failures and had to get back up and restart the process. The restarting part is the most difficult, especially after you put so much work in and still failed. I mean, why keep trying right? Wrong. If you stop trying, then that’s when your dreams start wilting. You have to keep watering your dreams and get ’em back up strong. Once you recover from the failure at hand, about 2-3 weeks later, you feel back on a roll and continue the journey to success.

The formula is simple: 40% hard work + 60% dreams = success

Creativity is Intelligence Having Fun

Kill Rigidity with Creativity

You have one computer and that’s all you get. There is no yearly updated version like a brand new Windows computer or MacBook with a new M1 chip. Your brain is all you have and if you don’t continuously upgrade it by challenging yourself, seeking new horizons and crossing new boundaries, then you will remain in your present reality that will eventually dull your existence. Creativity is intelligence having fun.

Guess what happens when your existence is dulled? Mental health problems arise. To avoid such problems, you must constantly recreate your reality by keeping your decision-making in check. What do I mean by this? If you continue to make the same decisions month after month, your reality will not change much. You will become a slave to your environment. Your decisions prescribe your reality; if they’re not carefully crafted, you will puff up with confusion, dismay and displeasure.

Creativity is Intelligence Having Fun – The Process

So how do you create wisely? Life is based on trials and errors. Start the trial, pile up the errors and continue to update your computer. But if you don’t start the trial, you don’t have any opportunities to improve yourself. To start the trial, you must first seek to be creatively intelligent. I’m not necessarily referring to arts and music, even though these can help to reshape your reality. I’m referring to your thoughts and getting creative with them. To be creative requires a special form of intelligence that anyone can tap into. It involves the will to use your imagination to explore new thoughts and ideas.

Try to find that inner child of yours that will help you become more imaginatively creative. Remember when you were a kid and how you loved to explore new activities? I used to love playing with snails and other insects in my backyard in Montreal when I was 5 years old. I used to pick them up and position them near each other and observe how they would interact. Today, I dislike insects. That’s what I mean by being creative; finding the desire to try new things. If you can tap into that desire, make it part of your personality and maintain it, it will become much easier for you to alter your reality.

Don’t be one of those people who are afraid to try new things. Your thoughts can be experimented with and can be used to improve your life. But if you remain rigid, life will keep providing you with rigid options. Rigidity prevents you from being flexible, thinking outside the box and trying new people, places and things. Rigidity can be deadly to your mental health. Kill rigidity with creativity.

The Psychology of Money

Money in the Bank

Our everyday interactions are intertwined with the psychology of money. From the day we discover money as children, we immediately appreciate the power that lies at our fingertips. Whether it’s that yummy cheeseburger at McDonald’s or those candy bars at the local convenience store, we realize that money can bring us immediate happiness; the food or candy provides us with a sugar high and a dopamine rush. Our brain then associates the currency with the awesome feeling, and so we seek to ask our parents for more of it, work for an allowance or get a job as a teenager.

Something changes in adults however; some become very motivated and learn to make handsome amounts of money, while others are lazy and unmotivated and settle for much less than their potential would have afforded them. Why does this happen if most of us appreciated money from a young age? It doesn’t matter where you grew up; even those in urban and poor neighborhoods appreciate the value of a dollar when they see their favorite athletes on television or even drug dealers on their block rolling on 24 inch rims.

Psychology of Money: Accumulation

Is there a psychology behind accruing larges amounts of money? I believe that there certainly is and that it has a lot to do with drive, belief, vision, motivation and dreams; don’t forget luck. Keep in mind that most of those factors have to be present for one to be successful at obtaining large amounts of money. You can’t just have dreams but not work towards them. You can’t just work hard but not have dreams; otherwise, you’re adopting the role of a robot and you will eventually burn out.

Belief is a very important factor behind the psychology of money; definitely a top 3 factor. Belief is the gasoline in the engine; it keeps your ride moving forward. The engine is your drive, the motivation is the rider and the dream is your destination; don’t forget luck because that’s responsible for a smooth ride. Now do you see how all of these factors are connected?

What is your experience with making large amounts of money?

Creative Minds

Learning to Utilize Imagination

Creative minds are calling you

Imagination is a tool underutilized

Its roots come alive only when tapped deep enough

Sometimes the soil is stubborn

The plants don’t get through

The rains keep trying

Your thoughts are glued

You wonder why you think so lame

Why you can’t elevate your game past a certain membrane

You lose touch with any excitement

Everything has become repetitive

You miss Mike Tyson

Your imagination is not going through

You just want to improve your outcomes

But your thoughts are glued

You have to learn how to use it like a tool

It’s not just dreaming and moving on

It takes a lot of acting to set it on

To make it a reality

From your mind to your environment

To manifest your wishes into real-world successes

The choice is yours if you want to tap in

Your imagination is waiting within

Do you know how to break in?

Creative Minds: Breaking into your Psyche

You heard that substances can provide traction

Cannabis, alcohol or caffeine

You take them and you’re suddenly relaxing

Musical molecules swim up from your speakers

I hear colors

But you see sounds

The synesthesia is profound

You’re stuck in the matrix or whatever you call it

A gnome opens up a vault within your mind

Immediately a bunch of juice creeps out like slime

Its colors don’t matter

You know right away what it is

Creative juice does exist

Who would ever resist?

You’re flowing now and you can’t stop

Your mind is high

Call it anti-locks

Who would have known about this cruise control feature

Imagine a wheel behind your forehead

You’re the captain of this ship

No longer government-led

But are drugs a cheat code to the matrix?

If so, will you resist or continue playing?

Never Stop Believing

The Power Lies Within You

It’s very easy to allow society to discourage you from your wildest dreams. After all, why would anyone want to see you succeed? Use that as motivation when society laughs at your dreams. You can climb as high as you’d like because this is your life and you are the player; God has given you free will to live as you wish. Don’t allow lavish goals to become impossibilities. Anything is achievable if you can envision it within your eye’s mind. Forget all the details of, “How, when or even why.” Just keep dreaming and believe that life will position all the pieces in their right place. The next thing you’ll know after you open your eyes is your newfound reality based on a once upon a time dream. Never stop believing.

It’s also very easy to get discouraged when you don’t see the results you want. Many people motivate themselves by believing in something new, only to become disappointed when they don’t achieve it. A belief does not always immediately manifest; oftentimes, it takes years for a result to become apparent. People are very easily influenced by their environment. Whenever something bad happens that is not even related to their beliefs, they quickly become discouraged and give up. This is what separates successful people from those who plateau; they never stop believing.

Don’t Give Up and Never Stop Believing

No one ever said that life is easy. Even for people born into wealth, they struggle with mental health problems due to insecurity of not having achieved their own wealth. You have people who don’t have wealth and struggle, and people with wealth who struggle. Mental health has no boundaries. Wealth is materialism and does not guarantee happiness and satisfaction in life. What guarantees happiness and satisfaction is the way you view the world and the thoughts that you experience. If you constantly experience self-defeating thoughts, your beliefs will crumble and your motivation to achieve your goals will fumble.

You have to understand that your environment will constantly challenge you; there’s no avoiding it. There are simply too many factors in our environment that easily influence us, such as people, the media, employment, education, etc. The only way to minimize environmental influences is by isolating yourself remotely in the countryside. But what will isolation accomplish you? Isolation is just a form of running away and hiding from your own expectations. People who isolate are either depressed or scared to work for their goals; they’re afraid of failure. You cannot be afraid of failure. The most successful people in life have admitted that it was through failure that they learned to become successful. Don’t ever give up and never stop believing in yourself.

Dream Diary

8/27/20 Dream Analysis

  • Unknown location (Dream I): I was in a house with two big sliding doors overlooking a parking lot. I noticed a man in the parking lot looking at me in surprise and two men beating an innocent man in the street who was confronting them. It felt like I was in Florida or something. The man in the parking lot jumped over the gate and fled while the other two were most likely hiding the body. I pulled the shades down and hid under my bed thinking that they would come to kill me too. Later that night, I was eating in the bedroom with two other guys. We then noticed a familiar man pulling up in a van in the parking lot.
  • We thought it was them who were back to kill us because we were witnesses to their murder and suspicious activity. Someone threw me a gun and I went in the backroom to warn my dad that they were here. I told him to get ready and to also get the dog and head for the car out back. I ran downstairs to the basement to get a shotgun for my dad. When I got back upstairs, someone was walking in the hallway saying, “Hello?” I did not see the person. I also noticed a Chinese guy named James from medical school.

Dream Diary – Second Half of My Dreams

  • Unknown location (Dream II): I was driving my Mercedes quite fast on very wet highways that were surrounded by many streams and marshes. There were no railings between the highways and streams. I then lost control of my car and ended up flying and landing perfectly on an island. The island was a young man’s rich property. I noticed my car was actually a Lamborghini. I knocked on the door of the mansion and a young man with his girlfriend answered. They were informed of what happened and asked if they could help me get off the island. The young man agreed to take my car while his girlfriend agreed to drive me in hers. Then something happened to the young man like something evil at play. I was stuck with his girlfriend and one of us had turned into a vampire.
  • Unknown location (Dream III): I heard a scary voice that almost sounded demonic. The voice was saying, “go awayyyy” and then I woke up to the noise of a loud truck outside that made a car’s alarm system go off.

Sigmund Freud was known for saying, “dreams are the royal road to the unconscious.” What does your dream diary consist of? Feel free to share you dreams as well.

Believing With All Your Might

Believing Is A Lifestyle

I’m sure many of you have heard it a thousand times, “Believe it and you will achieve it.” Well . . . it’s not quite that easy. Sitting around on a random day and just believing that you’ll become a millionaire is not going to do much. Believing is a lifestyle. You have to practice it every day, multiple times a day until you’re sick of believing! Believing with all your might is required for things to come true.

In the bible, we’re taught by Jesus Christ, the Son of God, to believe with all our heart and mind and that whatever we ask in prayer will come true. Many people will say, “Dr. Sinu! I’ve tried believing my entire life and nothing has ever manifested!” And then you gave up I take it? You see, believing requires a change in your personality.

This change involves persistence, stamina and the refusal to accept anything less. If you lack these traits, you are at a disadvantage because you are prone to giving up on your beliefs and settling for mediocracy. You have to understand something and this is not meant to scare you: you almost have to become delusional in your beliefs in order to see them manifest into your life.

But delusional in a good way; not the pathological kind that is known as delusional disorder. Being delusional in your beliefs is another way of saying, “Believe what it is that you want to believe to the point that others would tell you that it’s impossible.” And believing is not a one time sit-down session where you meditate and believe for 10 minutes and expect results in return.

Believing is a lifestyle. You must breath, sleep and eat beliefs all day, every single day, rain or shine. You must visualize with feelings in your mind, seeing yourself in your mind’s eye what you want to be doing and feeling it as if it were your current reality. It’s difficult to do that every day but it will pay off in the future with enough persistence.

I never knew that I would become a doctor until I turned 20 and not even then did I know that I would one day be in residency practicing psychiatry! I thought that I was going to end up in Hollywood as an actor or screenwriter, even though I still would like to accomplish these goals one day! But I got my mind right and set myself up to stay on one path only until it became a reality!

I never knew that I would one day start a blog called “Defeating Stigma Mindfully” and interact with people all over the world! But one day as I was sitting in my bedroom, I stumbled across WordPress and the rest was history. My point is that you can accomplish whatever you want!

You just got to have the dreams, vision, ambition and work ethic and actually set out to accomplish your goals!

Your Dreams Rock

You Are A Rock Star

With more time on our hands because of the virus that has decided to take a world tour, we have no excuse but to dream bigger and work towards making our dreams a reality. Utilize this free time as an opportunity to grow and plan out your future; no time should be wasted. Life always throws you opportunities for improvement, even if it’s during deadly times.

In other words, do not sit idly at home waiting for evilness to pass away; it never will. The coronavirus is just a small piece of the arsenal when it comes to Satan and his army; unfortunately he took out one of his more powerful weapons this time. But casually sitting around complaining about how your world has changed for the worse is not doing you any good.

Did you know that you are a rock star? We all are. But we have to start thinking like a rock star, believing like a rock star, dreaming like a rock star and eventually living like a rock star. No worldly event, no matter how negative and evil it may be, should be holding you back from progressing in life.

And it all starts with your dreams! Are you waking up every day believing that this will be the day that you will accomplish X, Y, and Z? If you are not, then you aren’t thinking like a rock star. You must feed your drive and motivation the minute that you wake up, no matter how pissed off you are and no matter how unfortunate your current circumstances are.

You can’t allow your environment to make you its slave; you will not allow that to happen! You have to learn to put yourself in a position of power where you are the one controlling your environment and this does not mean controlling others; you never want to control others. You want to be a leader, not a boss. Bosses tell people what to do; leaders show people how to do it!

So start dreaming and living like a rock star and watch your success and happiness skyrocket. And when you start demonstrating leadership qualities, people will start to respect and follow you to learn more from your awesome ways! This is the rock star mentality that you need to start adopting today.

Together we can and we will!

Don’t Stop Believing

Euphoric Dreams

Life is extremely talented at making you lose confidence in yourself: it’ll chew you up and spit you out a million times until it breaks you down to pieces. Those who care less are the ones who stand up and prevail in the end. Those who become emotionally weak and give up on their dreams are the ones who are left behind.

Don’t expect life to take it easy on you; it never will. One of your greatest assets is the power of belief. You have to hold onto this feeling of believing that you can accomplish whatever you’re set out to. Life will present you with many obstacles that will attempt to rob you of this feeling of believing; you just have to keep pushing forward.

The process of accomplishing your dreams and goals is not an easy one. It takes perseverance, hard work and many failures. Without failures, you cannot experience great victories. You will always taste the small victories, but in order to breath and feel the great ones, you must first experience the failures.

But dreams do come true! You just have to consistently apply the right mindset and get out there every day and put your best foot forward. The process of shooting for your dreams should always be an exciting one. Somewhere in the back of your mind, you should feel excited when you experience pain, misery and torture. This is how you know that you are battling your way to victory.

Without pain, misery and torture, you are moving at a snail’s pace. The more pain and adversity that you are experiencing, the faster the process is unfolding before your eyes. Once you get through the many obstacles lying in front of you, the bittersweet taste of having your dreams become a reality feels euphoric-like.

Drugs provide you with an artificial euphoria. Dreams provide you with a real euphoria. Let’s make our dreams come true on The DSM Ready Platform.
