YESTERDAY IS PAST, TOMORROW IS YET TO COME, WHAT WE HAVE IS THE ‘PRESENT’ WHICH TRULY IS A ‘GIFT’. All that we have been bestowed with today is what makes us a complete being, for you never know what the future has in store. So are we making the optimal use of our numerous blessings today to make our lives seem even slightly better than those less fortunate?
If we make the effort to notice the small details around us, we can actually learn the true meaning of life. Here’s how you can notice the finer details in life… • Enjoy and live every moment to the fullest and try to gain/ learn something out of each. • Notice the changes by asking questions and finding their solutions. • Stop complaining about and judging other people, and accept them with their short-comings. Master the art of forgiveness. • Empathize with other people’s feelings and learn from their experiences in life. • Stand for yourself and develop a sense of self-reliance and security.
Remember: Everyone cannot be there for you always, same way as you cannot be there for them every time. • Shed your prejudices and be open to fresh ideas. • Take time to relax and enjoy, without ignoring your needs. • Live your life to achieve what you believe in and what you think you deserve. • Work to your best capability towards anything you feel is worth achieving. Remember: If you wish for something to happen, try to make it happen with sincerity and perseverance. • Be thankful and content with what you have. Derive pleasure from small things in life, which you otherwise take for granted and many others are deprived of.
What is the common trait that links most successful and happy people? They have a tremendous amount of persistence, backed by a positive mental attitude.
• Yes folks optimism is the key to a successful and 'inspired' life. • The positive energy in winners allows them to rise above the mundane, cut through red tape and display occasional, brilliant flashes of excellence. • Just like fire in the fireplace which must be started with small bits and twigs, so too the fire in life can be kindled with generous and constant boosts of positive mental energy.
Remember -- mental energy is the stepping stone to success.
Mastering life and control over destiny are synonyms in the true sense. A select few actually are successful in doing either of them.
Many a time we feel the urge to act without thinking, to spontaneously do or say things for which we are sorry later. There is always a part of you that says it is right in its actions. But don’t let your passion do the talking instead listen to your mind.
The key to mastering your life is identifying your inner strengths and weakness and dictating your actions. Rash actions are in actual resistance to your thoughts. Free your thoughts from the shackles by changing your thoughts that create opposition.
Success lies in believing that you can and transforming these thoughts to actions. As the saying goes "You are a king if you are ruled by your mind, a slave if ruled by your body."
Pep Quote "It's lack of faith that makes people afraid of meeting challenges, and I believe in myself." --Muhammad Ali
There are many times when our day does not flow as we planned. Right from the time you wake up in the morning till the time your head touches the pillow at night, things seem to go awry. That's when you need to tell yourself that it'll only get better.
There are times when people disappoint you and let you down. But don’t sulk or get irritated with them. Instead concentrate on believing in yourself, trust your instincts and maintain your own opinion.
Don’t lose sight of your ultimate goal. Constantly you will have to face challenges and implement changes in your life, and it is up to you to accept them. Believe strongly that you can achieve that goal. Challenges help you to realise the goals that you know are meant to materialise. It may not be easy, but it is in times of struggle that you will discover yourself--the individual and emerge the stronger.
There are deserts to cross, great aridity to tide and discouragement. There are times when we are terrified of facing the future, the unknown. Remember to believe in yourself and all you want your life to be. Believe in this so strongly that even days filled with frustration and unexpected responsibilities cannot deter you from making your life what you want it to be.
Keep Believing in Yourself.
Pep Quote "The depth of your belief and the strength of your conviction determines the power of your personality." --Brian Tracy
There is a fundamental rule in cricket that says, "Play the ball with a straight bat." And that is the solution to many problems in life. The key to mastery in anything is simplicity.
Many of the most complex conundrums have had very simple solutions. To understand complex subjects, the ground work of identifying and understanding basic simple principles needs to be done. The irony of any solution is that it seems very simple after you have arrived at it. But you need to realize that solutions are simple only when you know what they are.
Does that mean we start limiting ourselves to just being simple? No. We could not be more wrong if we did that. The idea is to go about achieving complex or big tasks by accomplishing smaller simpler tasks easily. That is what "Keep it Simple" simply means.
So dream big, dream grand and when you set out to realize your dreams, be sure to fill in the simpler goals. They automatically steer you on the right road to reach for the sky.
Pep Quote: "If you go to work on your goals, your goals will go to work on you. If you go to work on your plan, your plan will go to work on you. Whatever good things we build end up building us." -- Jim Rohn
Abraham Lincoln said – "I have been driven many times to my knees by the overwhelming conviction that I had nowhere else to go."
This came from a man whose legacy of failures is often used, to inspire people to overcome life's difficulties.
Wishing for success or wanting it in varying degrees is not enough for you to actually attain. If you want to court success, you need to strive to meet it. There are people who try and if they meet with failure, they tend to give up. They do not know or understand one basic rule of life 'Everything that we have learnt will be tested.' This helps us to perfect the lessons of life that we have learnt, in addition to reaching our goals and realizing our dreams. We should not give up trying.
Life cannot be taken for granted. Life always tests the best and puts the winners on the podium of success. Well, what about the losers you may ask? There are no losers in life; everyone who strives to the best of their ability is a winner. Remember that the darkest of the night comes before the dawn. So never, give up trying to achieve your goals.
Pep Quote "People of mediocre ability sometimes achieve outstanding success because they don't know when to quit. Most men succeed because they are determined to." --George E. Allen
The age-old adage “Nobody’s perfect” reiterates itself everyday. Everybody makes mistakes. People are always erring, but then, that is how everybody learns. Winners and successful people too make mistakes, sometimes more than others. Yet they are successful because they learn from them. They looked at the mistakes and then decided to beat them.
We need to realise, when we climb the ladder of success, there is nothing such as a smooth ascent. When you have climbed two steps up, many a time you will find, a mistake or misfortune has put you four steps down. At this point, it is very easy to sit back and cry over your unsuccessful attempt; most people do it. That is when successful individuals pick themselves up, learn from their mistakes and then try to get up four steps on the ladder. This time they are successful.
Remember that often in life many people make as many moral mistakes as well as professional and career mistakes, however these mistakes must translate into an education for us only then can we tread the path to success with conviction.
