     You are already thinking that this is impossible as your day is already full – you go to bed late and still don’t have everything done, right? Well, I think the same way occasionally until I make time to review my time. But, have you taken a few minutes to really review your schedule and activities to see if you can find an hour for yourself by stealing a little bit of time from other activities?
     Everyone needs a little quiet time because, without it, stress, depression, and anxiety tend to creep into our lives. Creating an extra hour each day for reflection can really pay off over time. You’ll realize that the standard of your life improves after you create time to mirror on your goals, dreams, and needs.
    Focusing your mind on what is most important to you, enables you to go after those dreams with a passion and bring them to life. Try these ideas to find that extra time to reflect:
    Re-purpose some of your TV time.
      Television is a significant time waster. Most people average 4+ hours of TV per day. If that’s you, this is an easy place to find an hour.
  Spend less time on the internet.
     The net is a great source of information, but it’s also an easy place to spend a lot of unproductive time. For example, how much time do you spend on social media websites reading about what your friends are having for dinner? Really? Just cut back and use the time for yourself.
  Early to bed, early to rise… 
     If you can get up an hour earlier, that’s an hour you have to yourself. There’s something quiet and peaceful about the morning that you don’t get at other times of the day.
  Limit your email time.
      Plan a specific amount of time, once per day, to check and reply to emails. 
 Cut out some shopping.
      Drop all your shopping (except grocery shopping) for a month. It’s just a month. You can go for a month without buying anything, can’t you? If that seems like too long, try two weeks.
 Drop some of the extraneous after work activities.
       Instead of all the other things you might have planned, use some of this time for yourself.
 Ration your reading time.
      Keep the most important parts of your reading activity and limit the non-essential reading to a set amount of time each day.
 Cut down on your playtime. 
     It’s certainly important for your wellbeing to take time to relax and participate in activities that you enjoy. However, if you find that you play video games for hours at a time or spend frequent evenings out on the town, perhaps you can shave a little of this time off for reflection.
      These are 8 ways you can find another hour, and you can easily find 8 more. If you use just 4 of these ideas each day, you would only have to cut out 15 minutes of each activity to find your hour.

How can you use that hour to create a more fulfilling life? Try these tips:

1. Review your goals.
    Remind yourself of your goals every day. How are things progressing? Is your plan to reach your goals moving you forward? Just reading them each day is helpful.
2. Think about your day.
    Each day, ask yourself what you’ve learned. What did you do well? What mistakes did you make? Can you make choices that serve you better? How? What are you grateful for today?
Imagine if each day were a little better than the last, on the average. What would your life be like a year from now?
3. Meditate. Escape the hustle and bustle of life and quiet your mind.
4. Journal.
   You’ll be shocked at how much you can learn about yourself when you write down your feelings. Plus, a journal gives you a venue to write about your challenges, reduce your stress about them, and work through them to find solutions.

    Give yourself the gift of an extra hour each day for reflection. An hour a day can be transformational – find your hour and take advantage of it.

Steps to Discover Your Life Purpose and Gain Self Confidence

        “The mystery of human existence lies not in just staying alive, but in finding something to live for.”

         Discovering your life purpose is not an easy process. Ask someone what their purpose in life is, what do you think you will receive as an answer? Possibly a fuzzy list of goals or maybe responsibilities, for example, to be the best parent; be an honest person; be a true friend. Although these are important, who doesn’t want to be the best parent, or an honest person or be a true friend? What you want and need is a specific, defined purpose for your life, a purpose which you are passionate about, a purpose which helps you to understand that you are living for something bigger than yourself. To accomplish this, you need to move beyond this “fuzzy” list of goals.
          Do you think you can succeed as a wandering generality or do you need to become a meaningful specific? In the book “Over the Top”, Zig Ziglar thinks you need to become the meaningful specific. Are you really ready to go? If so, it’s time to get very detailed regarding your purpose here in this life. To get started, these strategies may help you to find your life purpose and gain self-confidence.

Find the purpose .. your life, your purpose.

        There is so much noise going on in your mind and around you, you are unable to hear the internal dialogue of the important things. You must let go of all this noise in order to find your purpose and hear the really important dialogue. It’s not to say that what’s going on in the outside is not important. But other people give us so many opinions, requests and suggestions about how things should be, we do not even try to hear our own dialogue or consider what is important to us. It’s your life and your purpose, make the effort to consult with the most important person, yourself.
        Your growth spiritually and personally is your responsibility. Many people may be telling what you should and should not do with your life, but it is not anyone else’s responsibility, again,, it is your life, your purpose. Filter these other things out by creating “selective ignorance”, Once you do this, your focus can move to the skill needed to help find your purpose. As you take on this responsibility, you will gain self-confidence.

Start to hear your internal dialogue
        The one critical step is to start creating self-awareness. Find YOUR specific purpose. Begin by listening to yourself. To help cut out all the other noise, you should begin by keeping a daily journal of your thoughts. Benjamin Franklin, the great inventor, said: “If you’re not to be forgotten when you’re dead and rotten, either do things worth writing about or write things worth reading about.” Many great men and women in history invested the time to write in their daily journals, keeping track of their thoughts and reflections. There is no question, these actions had an impact on their self-confidence and achievements.
     Writing can clarify the multitude of thoughts going around in your head all day long. Writing focuses your mind to bring about this clarity.
      In addition to writing your thoughts down, ask yourself questions which relate to your purpose and write down these answers. For instance: “What do I want to be remembered for? “ and “Before I die, what are the things I want to complete?… By asking these questions you are developing a new skill. The skill is interpreting your thoughts and listening to your inner dialogue. Your answers will start to become clear and detailed, creating your purpose.

You will find Your Life Purpose By Beginning the Journey

        Don’t wait for the inspiration to come to you, go after it.  Your mind needs some help. Begin feeding it materials which will help you further understand your own desires. Someone has walked before you and has done something similar.
        Give yourself time and opportunity to become a reader ( audiobooks, podcasts, and videos work) and researcher of the subjects you’re interested in. Along with your journaling, you will succeed in finding your life purpose. You will gain self-confidence at each step in this process. Taking responsibility and taking action will increase your self-confidence.
     
 I hope you like this article. Please share your thoughts and experiences on improving self-confidence and discovering your life purpose

Thank You..

TIPS TO LIVE A HAPPY AND SUCCESSFUL LIFE

No comments :
      "If you don't design your own life plan, chances are you'll fall into someone else's plan. And guess what they have planned for you? Not much." Jim Rohn

     Human life is the most precious and God given gift to us. Hence we must enjoy it happily and successfully. It is not meant for weeping and sleeping only. God created us with a specific purpose. Happy life will automatically enhance once self confidence and personality and his status in the society. Here are some simple tips to lead a happy life.
www.momentsofpositivity.com

1. Avoid the egoism:
    Egoism is nothing but “I and myself mentality”. Usually, most of us are of the (false) opinion that we know more compared to others and need not heed to other’s advice and suggestions. Thus, some times we may take wrong decisions and causes irreparable damage to us and also our family members.
2. Avoid the fear of defeat:
    Fear is the root-cause for all the defeats that often we face in our lives and most of the times it is imaginary and having no sufficient base.Be brave and have the courage and mentality of “come what may happen, I face it boldly”. Certainly, your mind will be free from that devil of fear.
3. Self-confidence:
    Self-confidence walks before every success. Such is the effect and importance of confidence in our life and career. Without it, you can’t move even for a short distance. It can be compared to a spear, which can pierce any thing and makes its way forward. Never lose confidence in yourself and go ahead and success will be in your palms. Study the life of “Abraham Lincoln”, the president of America and see how he faced the repeated failures in his life.
4. Proper planning:
    Everything is in zigzag state, if there is no prior and proper planning. Every where, every thing goes according to plan of action. To construct a multi-storied building, the architect prepares a map of the monument and then it will become very easy to construct that building.The same thing we have to do with our lives..it may not be perfect because life is unpredictable but, we should be prepared to face all difficulties. And with proper planning the problems will appear small.
5. Family responsibilities:
    Owning the family responsibilities is the part and parcel of the successful living. No body takes any interest in other’s family problems. You can’t avoid and escape from them.Be with your family when they need you the most.
6. Financial securities:
    You must earn money and secure it either in cash or kind, for future safety. But, your earnings should be in rightful manner, not in illegal ways, under any circumstances. Otherwise, law will take its own course of action.
7. Proper goal-setting:
    A goal less life is compared to a boat without a rudder. One must have a goal (proper destination or achieving something) in life, to make the life meaningful and role-model to others. We can take the inspiration from the lives of so many great leaders, like –“Mahatma Gandhi (India), Abraham Lincoln of America, Nelson Mandela of South Africa, etc.
8. Avoiding postponing mentality:
    The golden word is: “Never post -pone a thing till tomorrow, what can be done today”. Nobody knows about tomorrow and what is in preserve for it. Today is equal to ready cash. So, better depend cash, rather than cheques  (which may be bounced) often. So try to avoid Procrastination.
9. Dedication and devotion:
     In any dealing, trust plays vital role and sincerity has its greater effect on our deeds and dealings with others. Hence, devotion and dedication have positive roles in achieving success and goals in our life and career.Well as you can't change people ,you can influence them..Be a dedicated person and people will follow your lead.
10. Having interest:
   The last but not the least is “having interest” in our job or profession or career or business or anything else, we are dealing, doing or working. Without enthusiasm and interest, we can’t reach our goal (aim) and achieve success in our valuable life and career.

   These are some tips to be happy..and successful..It will take time but you will know you are on right path if you follow these simple tips..So start to follow them today and live a happy life...

Strengthen Your Focus to Achieve Your Goals

No comments :


“Concentrate all your thoughts upon the work at hand. The sun’s rays do not burn until brought to a focus.”
                                                             Alexander Graham Bell
Strengthen Your Focus to Achieve Your Goals
            Being focused is extremely beneficial in all areas of your life, but it is something that must be nurtured and built within yourself. Once strengthened, this focus will be an advantage in achieving your goals. Why? Because by having unshakable focus, determination and intensity in purpose will have been developed along the way.

How would you rate the strength of your focus on a scale of 1 to 10?
            Personally, I rate mine at about 6. At times, my focus is amazingly intense, allowing me to have the determination I need to complete projects and concentrate on the steps needed to accomplish my goals. But, then, I find myself floundering, feeling overwhelmed, and searching for that powerful feeling of focus again. The intense desire to change a particular situation in my life is the catalyst that I need to propel myself back into that state of focus.

To strengthen your focus you need to be committed to your goals.

            You must be absolutely committed to reaching your goals. If you’re not completely committed to what you want to accomplish, it will be very difficult to strengthen your focus.
             To be successful in achieving your goals, you must not harbor any second thoughts, doubts, or excuses. Don’t let yourself “cruise” along when everything seems to be going smoothly – this can cause you to backslide into that lackadaisical mindset. Remind yourself daily what your goals are and why you want to accomplish them – don’t lose your focus!
             Remember, just having the desire will not guarantee accomplishment. You can desire something without firm commitment, so be sure to distinguish between the two and take the appropriate actions. Be honest with yourself and know that this is something you truly want to see through until the end.
