New Year Resolutions - Week 21 Achievements & Failures in 2023 #TheLifesWay

Hi Guys,

Week 21 started with touching the 2000 YouTube subscribers I had aimed for many months. So Grateful to everyone who chose to give my channel a subscription and you can too as it's completely free. 
New Year Resolutions - Week 21 Achievements & Failures in 2023 #TheLifesWay
1. Launch Events - I was invited to Samsung's Bespoke Design Challenge Winner announcement at Design Quarters and what a setup Samsung South Africa has designed to entice customers before they make their own unique den using the Samsung range of products from TV to Fridges to Microwave to Washing Machine and Gas Cooking Station. The colour combination on Samsung Bespoke products can match the colours of your choice and even the microwave colour was matching and I totally fell in love with the setup. You can check out my IG page for photos from the same or visit Samsung Lifestyle Experience at Design Quarters in Fourways. I also posted a lot of photos on Google Maps as well. 
I met the Director of WriteSpoke and he showcased to me some of the luxury stationery products available at his online store and his passion towards the Fountain Pens. He is an avid collector himself of inks and fountain pens along with great paper or notepads to write on. 
I also got the legacy of Mr Derek whose daughter sold me his Mont Blanc collection of inks and some other fountain pens that I am going to use in the future. The fountain pens will be my first time using Gold Nib pens and becoming an owner of the same to carry Uncle Derek's legacy forward. 
There is a quote in Hindi - Bhagwaan jab data hai chappar phaad kar deta hai and that came true as I went to Stationery Expo and got so many pens and other stationery products that I can even last them for my whole life without even buying a single pen myself but as you know me, I will definitely buy the ones I love and intend to collect. In English, it means when Almighty God blesses you with something then you won't be able to hold it in your arms and house as it will be so much in abundance. 
2. Entertainment - I was eagerly waiting for the Sirf Ek Bandaa Kaafi Hai movie starring Manoj Bajpayee. The story is based on a lawyer who is fighting against a religious guru who was caught by law for doing sexual assault on his followers. It's really a movie you will like and I totally liked the same as one man fights against everyone despite people being bought using force or money or shot. 
3. YouTube Shorts - As I told you earlier that I was going 5 shorts per day and this has helped me grow my subscribers at a fast pace. From 1997 to reaching 2043 by the end of the week was never possible earlier without YouTube Shorts. A YouTube Shorts event was also there which I attended virtually and there was a YouTube Listen event as well with some of the upcoming artists or big singers who are choosing YT Shorts as a platform to go live and launch their song. 
4. Thank You - I started the counter again and reached 40000 before it again came back to zero. I started again and reached the 1500 mark to finish the week. I am adamant about completing my 100k for the month despite the counter not agreeing to the same. Human courage and willpower are much more than any machine for sure. 
5. Salary - This is a one-time event every month which I want to have more than once in my day-to-day living. I want to earn some more cheques, money transfers, EFTs, and cash flow so that I can also enjoy the luxuries of abundant life has to offer. I don't look at the price tag for buying what I want to buy. I can get the gadgets I actually want to use and products I want to write with like the Mont Blanc 149 Fountain Pen which is still beyond my salary reach. This can only be acquired if I get some promotional work completed or get some advertisements on my social media channels. Hands folded as for Lord Shiva nothing is impossible! Cheers!!!
I am really grateful to all the readers who are liking these blog posts as I see that the weekly posts are being loved by my readers a lot. I don't know who are you so drop me a comment on what I can also do in my daily life or anything you want me to add or write about? 

Aum Namah Shivay!

Till next time...Aashish
Thanks! Cheers!!!
