#CelebrateingtheRainbow at the workplace – share your stories of Pride!
Achieving goals is a combination of dedication, discipline, determination and a whole lot of patience.
I am sure most of you made resolutions on the New Year. From weight loss, to healthier habits to achieving work goals, most of us have already decided to dedicate time for self-growth and care. On paper, sticking to our resolutions and achieving them seems easy, but the real pain begins when we try to execute the same in reality! The zeal with which we begin seem to fade away as we embark on this journey. Achieving goals is a combination of dedication, discipline, determination and a whole lot of patience. Here are 5 best ways to stick to any goals that you set for yourself.
If the prospect of running 10kms makes you think of reasons to actually just sit at home and chill, then you better break it down into smaller goals. Start with small baby steps and set milestones for your goals. Like you could run for 2kms for the first week and then increase the distance as you get habituated to the idea of running. Similarly, all your goals can be broken down into smaller achievable milestones. This will not overwhelm you and keep you focus oriented.
You have to be your loudest cheerleader! Celebrate achievement of every milestone, small or big. Rewarding yourself will help you feel happy and in power of achieving way better or more. This will cement your ability to achieve goals and make you will stronger and much more focused.
You need to have people who cheer for you and add value to your life. Besides supporting your goals, they should be able to help you reform yourself, emotionally and intellectually. They can act as reminders and helping hand if ever you deviate from your goals. Positive mind leads to positive thinking and a positive way of life.
The most important turning point while sticking to our goals happens when we don’t achieve desired results immediately or when the results take time. One has to train the mind and body to wait patiently for the results to show, you are not going to lose weight overnight or achieve any professional goal within a fortnight. We need to pump in sincere efforts over a period of time for the results to reflect.
When you set a goal to achieve, a lot of people will judge your ability to do so, some will ridicule you and some might just discard it. Remember you are doing it for yourself and not to prove anything to someone else. Hold a strong belief in your abilities, skills and never doubt your potential.

Can you believe this bloke compelled me to wear only saris - full time at home- till the eighth month of my pregnancy?! The excessive heat coupled with humidity made my life miserable.
Recently when I browsed an interesting post by a fellow author on this very forum I had a sense of déjà vu. She describes the absolutely unnecessary hullabaloo over ladies donning nighties and /or dupatta –less suits.
I wish to narrate how I was in dire straits so far wearing a ‘nightie’ was concerned.
I lived in my ultra orthodox sasural under constant surveillance of two moral guardians (read Taliban) in the shape of the husband’s mom and dad. The mom was unschooled and dim-witted while the dad was a medical practitioner. But he out-Heroded the Herod in orthodoxy.
My supervisor introduced me as a valuable member of the team, emphasizing my skills and contributions rather than focusing on my gender identity. This simple act set the tone for my experience in the workplace.
As a transwoman navigating the corporate world, I had encountered my fair share of discrimination and challenges. Transitioning without the support of my parents and having limited friendships in my personal life made the journey difficult and lonely. However, when I stepped into the office, something remarkable happened, I left behind the stress and negativity, embracing a space where I could truly be myself.
Joining the marketing team as a graphic designer, I was initially apprehensive about how my colleagues would react to my gender identity. But to my surprise, the atmosphere was welcoming and respectful from day one. My supervisor, Sarah, introduced me as a valuable member of the team, emphasizing my skills and contributions rather than focusing on my gender identity. This simple act set the tone for my experience in the workplace.
As I settled into my role, I discovered that my colleagues went out of their way to make me feel comfortable and included. They consistently used my correct name and pronouns, creating an environment where I could be authentically me. Being an introvert, making friends wasn’t always easy for me, but within this workplace, I found a supportive community that embraced me for who I truly am. The workplace became a haven where I could escape the stresses of my personal life and focus on my professional growth.
