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.

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.

How Positive Thinking Can Make Us Happier And More Successful

2 comments :

www.momentsofpositivity.com


       One’s mind may be likened to a garden, which may be intelligently cultivated or allowed to
run wild; but whether cultivated or neglected it must, and will, bring forth. If no useful seeds are put into it, then an abundance of useless weed seeds will fall therein and will continue to produce their kind.
      Every thought-seed sowed or allowed to fall into the mind, and to take root there, produces its own, blossoming sooner or later into the act, and beating its own fruits of opportunity and circumstances. Good thoughts bear good fruit, bad thoughts bad fruit.

      For the past year, I have made a conscious effort to monitor my thoughts and actions so as to fill my life with happiness and joy rather than the stress and anger that has consumed too many years of my life.
      When my thoughts are positive and full of love my day progresses much more smoothly; I am happier and full of joy. If I allow myself to react negatively to a situation or action of another, more and more problems and issues arise.

      I know now that I am creating my life with each and every thought and action.

When your heart is singing, you are allowing Well-being. When you are appreciating, you are allowing Well-being. When you are yelling at somebody, you’re not. When you’re feeling insecure, you’re not. When you’re frustrated, you’re not.

     How do you feel when you are so happy that you feel as if your heart is singing? Do you feel full of life and energy? Do you feel as if you were on top of the world? If you are truly happy in a moment you would feel all of these things because you are generating positive energy and are attracting the same in return.
    When you are angry, afraid, stressed, or frustrated do you feel drained afterward? It takes a lot of energy to create those negative feelings.
     Wouldn’t you rather “spend” your energy on something that makes you feel great? You have a choice, in every moment and situation in your life, as to how you will feel and react. Obviously, it is quite simple to just take a great moment and enjoy it. It is much harder when you are upset, doubtful, worried, or downright angry.

      While not always successful, I tell myself that I refuse to allow myself to have that negative, upsetting, fear-filled, doubtful, or anger-filled thought that is trying to take over. Personally, once I go down the path of anger or negativity, I can now see the result of that negative energy in my life whether it is being stopped by every red light, issues arising in my job or a piece of equipment or technology breaking.
       Knowing that I will, without a doubt, see this manifestation later in my day, or even the next, I make a very conscious effort to focus on only positive thoughts afterward. Fortunately, I am blessed with a great family and often use thoughts of them to aid in the process. I focus on how happy I am when I see them smile, how joyful the sound of their happiness is to me.

                        “Always laugh when you can. It is cheap medicine.” – Lord Byron.

             Laughter is considered the best medicine – preventive as well as curative. Smiling relaxes our facial muscles. When we are happy and laugh, “feel good chemicals” like endorphins and serotonin are released .That is the reason a bout of laughter improves our mood considerably. Just like exercise, laughter is supposedly very beneficial for the heart and we should consciously look for reasons to laugh at just like we try to exert ourselves physically to stay healthy.

HOW TO BE AND STAY POSITIVE

No comments :
www.momentsofpositivity.com

      I was just in a conversation with someone who’s life is completely consumed by negative thinking. He has been this way for so long do you think it’s even possible to change his way of thinking? I do, but I believe that person has to have the desire to want to change. This person was speaking negatively about situations that hadn’t even happened yet.

      I personally believe that positive thinking is more than just a frame of mind though. I look at positive thinking in terms of phases:

1.) Admit that you aren’t thinking positive and want to change those thoughts.

2.) Feed your mind with positive “things”

    a.) Books- Try to read self help books and biography of successful people..it will encourage you to   change yourself for better life.

    b.) Internet web sites and articles-- Read articles and watch videos that will help you to grow your personal and professional life

     c.) Environments-- Try to be in positive environment as much as possible

3.) Change your surroundings, yes this can even include family members and friends.

4.) Find people that encourage you and make you feel more positive.

5.) Learn to sense your negative thinking and stop it in its tracks. Change those negative thoughts into positive ones.

6.) Pray and read God’s word to see all of the amazing things he has promised us and believe in them!

HOW ATTITUDES AFFECT MOTIVATION

1 comment :
“Whether we find pleasure in our work or whether we find it a bore, depends entirely upon our mental attitude towards it, not upon the task itself.” 
       Your motivation depends, in large part, on whether you look upon your activity as a source of enjoyment or just a source of drudgery.
    
www.momentsofpositivity.com

       The labels we put on activity seem to have something to do with this. The word “work” stimulates an unpleasant response. Then we listen to the word “hard” in front of it and it becomes even more unpleasant. “Hard work” seems to imply there is something distasteful about human effort applied over an extended time to an activity for which there is compensation rendered.

     Medical experts say that the reason people become tired is not that they do too much-but rather because they do too little. Dr. James Montague said he never knew a person who suffered from overwork. There were many, however, who suffered from too much ambition and not enough action. Dr. Charles Mayo found much the same thing. “I have never known a person who died from overwork but there were many who died from doubt,” he said.
       But the greatest benefit you derive from doing just a little more than you have to is that, for some strange reason, you just feel better. No one seems to know why. But it is a fact that on those days that you get an early start and fill your day with a busy activity you end up feeling good about it.

    Here are some important factors that affect your motivation your ability to work.

 1. You will work for rewards:: primarily money.

 2. You will work for a leader...a person.

 3. You will work for something in which you believe, a cause, an activity that satisfies your purpose in living.

 4. You will work for things that satisfy you psychologically: recognition, security, friendship, fulfillment etc.

       All of them involve your attitude. You need money to buy the necessities of life. But beyond that point it is your attitude about how much more you want that determines the degree to which money will motivate you.
      It is your attitude about your boss as a leader that will determine if the boss can affect your motivation; no one is a perfect leader. You can find fault with the best if that is what you are looking for.
     Believing in what you do is the source of the strongest work motivation there is. Your attitude towards your work determines if you can believe in it. This is the “secret of motivation”--having the ability to believe in what you are doing. Some call it “cause” motivation. It is the ability to find cause and purpose in what you are doing.
     You will work for a reward. You will work harder for a leader or for recognition, security, or other psychological satisfaction (psychic rewards). But you will work hardest for a cause, a purpose, something in which you can believe.
     In fact, if you can believe in what you are doing, this type of motivation will tend to eliminate the effect of the unpleasant factors of work such as physical discomfort, poor working environment, people problems, etc. People have been known to endure almost unbearable physical hardships (even risking their lives) to pursue an activity in which they can believe.

    So the secret of the motivated person is the ability to BELIEVE in a job, a purpose, a goal. There is nothing one cannot achieve if one has the ability to believe. 
    Psychologists have discovered that people will work for money, but they will work harder for a leader or psychic satisfaction, but they work hardest for something in which they can BELIEVE. 

ALSO READ: INCREASE SELF ESTEEM THROUGH POSITIVE AFFIRMATIONS

      So, to become motivated in the way you spend your day, learn to believe in the activities in which you engage. If you are a salesperson believe in your company, your product, your job. If you are a teacher believe in the students you are helping, the purpose and worthiness of your work If you are a student believe in yourself and the investment of time you are making in your education.     Perhaps when you spend your time in this fashion you are fulfilling a bigger purpose for your life.

As Thomas Carlyle wrote: “What is the use of health, or of life, if not to do some work therewith?”

There are times when people disappoint you and let you down.But those are the times when you must remind yourself to trust your own judgments and opinions, to keep your life focused on believing in yourself.
 Exercise 
momentsofpositivity.com          Exercise in almost any form can act as a stress reliever. It won’t make your stress disappear but being active can definitely boost your feel good endorphin and take you away from your daily worries. So be it a 40 minutes of brisk walking, yoga , aerobics or some laps in the pool you will find that you have forgotten the day’s irritation and concentrating on your body.

The activities we do with friends help us relax and we often have a good laugh with them., which is an excellent stress reliever And may be your friends or collegues can also help you out with some solutions to your problems.
