Time for action

-Karthik Gurumurthy

Overthinking in decision making causes us to spend too much time thinking and getting stuck in a loop of inaction. You can't read the future and you can't know everything. So do know that thinking harder doesn't activate the crystal ball. and overthinking and problem solving aren't the same thing . Being a leader requires confidence, decisiveness, and quick thinking--none of which are served by overthinking every decision or scenario or worrying about every move you make.

There's a time to think, a time to act, a time to reflect, and a time to move forward.


Growth mindset

-Karthik Gurumurthy

Your growth mindset, or lack thereof, is critically important to achieving or not achieving goals. There is nothing wrong with realistic optimism. And don't let someone tell you otherwise.

Over my career, I've witnessed those with growth mindsets are realistically optimistic and achieve their professional and personal goals consistently.

They have ability to work through adversity. They realize by working smart, hard, together, with focus and doing so with consistency, they will achieve their goals.

They don't get too high or too low. They are team players and give recognition to others. They are coachable and often seek out coaching. They realize they themselves don't have all the answers. They most often are self and situationally aware; and bring positive energy to situations, even challenging situations. They might fail, but they learn, and consequently grow and achieve goals.

Conversely, I've also observed those who lack a growth mindset. They might take convenient accountability in positive situations; but lack accountability/responsibility in challenging situations.

They often bring negative energy to situations. They themselves don't admit fault or failure....In their mind "someone else fails them and causes them to not achieve their goals". They often are inconsistent in achieving goals.


Get going

-Karthik Gurumurthy

The doubts that we have in our minds are the ones that others have put in.

If we believe in those doubts, we will stop believing in ourselves

As we journey through life, there is a chance we might fail.

But if we don't begin that journey at all, then the failure is real.


Do I have to be MS Dhoni?

-Karthik Gurumurthy

Having high emotional intelligence doesn't mean that you remain calm and undisturbed in every situation. That is called Sainthood. You have your anger under control and can use it as a tool to showcase your displeasure. Never stop being yourself because of wrong understanding of concepts. Self awareness is the key. We have to use it wisely..


Prayer for Today

I release my partner
from the obligation to complete me.
I release my parents
from the feeling they failed with me.
I release my children
from the need to bring me pride,
so they can write their own paths
to the rhythm of their hearts.
I don't lack anything.
I cherish my essence,
my way of expressing it,
even if not everyone can understand me.
I learn from all beings,
all the time.
I honor
the divinity
in me
and you.
- Shamanic Blessing ✨💕🙏
