Everyone deserves good fortune. But a lot of us just don’t let it comes into their lives because they don’t think they deserved it.
“The less we deserve good fortune, the more we hope for it.”
– Lucius Annaeus Seneca
On the other side, people who are experiencing good fortune have to share it with others.
“I believe that we all have a responsibility to give back. No one becomes successful without lots of hard work, support from others, and a little luck. Giving back creates a virtuous cycle that makes everyone more successful.”
– Ron Conway
Be happy for the good fortune that comes to others. As we are all connected, it’s coming to you also.
We should not hope or expect good fortune. It’s a part of life and shall come to you in some way.
The fountain of youth is in continuing to learn. Without other purposes than to grow and do better things.
“Anyone who stops learning is old, whether at twenty or eighty. Anyone who keeps learning stays young. The greatest thing in life is to keep your mind young.”
– Henry Ford
You are as old as you choose to be. Choose to be young.
A mind with an interest in knowledge is a mind that stays young.
“Learning is not attained by chance, it must be sought for with ardor and diligence.”
– Abigail Adams
Choose to stay young. Develop your interest in learning.
There’s never too late to be kind.
Kindness cost nothing.
If someone is hard with you, be kind.
If someone is lying to you, be kind.
If someone has gossiped about you, be kind.
Kindness will always come on top.
Don’t be blind and stupid. When you know someone is bad for you, stop moving toward them.
Kindness is not a passive action. It’s an active energy that is working toward building a better world.
People who can appreciate your kindness will come to you.
We all want to be happy.
We have been misled to believe that things are linked to happiness.
Things cannot make you happy. It’s an illusion.
« The art of being happy lies in the power of extracting happiness from common things. »
– Henry Ward Beecher
Happiness is a choice. The simple choice of choosing to be happy.
Nothing outside of you can make you really happy.
You are the only one that has the power over your happiness.
Who are we to judge?
Why do we think that we have the right to judge?
“Judge a man by his questions rather than his answers.”
We don’t have the right to judge someone else. We do it anyway.
Even if we have a lot of details about what happened, we still don’t have the right to judge.
When you judge, it implies that you place yourself higher than that person.
We’re living in a world of “How to”.
People are looking for fast way to solve their problem. Thinking that reading a 10 step is enough to solve anything.
Reading about how to solve a problem is good. But it’s only a step in the right direction, you’ll still need to do lots of work about it.
Stop expecting someone else to solve your problem.
“We always hope for the easy fix: the one simple change that will erase a problem in a stroke. But few things in life work this way. Instead, success requires making a hundred small steps go right – one after the other, no slipups, no goofs, everyone pitching in.”
– Atul Gawande
Problem are created by us. We create them to face the need for change.
“You don’t have a problem; you only think you do.”
– Dr. Wayne Dyer
If you focus on solving the problem, there will be options offered to you. It’s up to you to choose what you want to do. And take action about it.
“I suppose it is tempting, if the only tool you have is a hammer, to treat everything as if it were a nail.”
– Abraham H. Maslow
If you only have a hammer and it doesn’t work, this would be a great time to find new tools.
This one of my favorite quote by Albert Einstein.
“We cannot solve our problems with the same level of thinking that created them”
– Albert Einstein
Take a moment to smile to yourself as you start the day. Take the day with a positive mind and hope.
“Smile in the mirror. Do that every morning and you’ll start to see a big difference in your life.”
– Yoko Ono
Starting and ending your day in a good way should become a habit.
You can influence your way of thinking as you take some simple habit.
End your day with gratitude and hope for your next day.
Grateful for what you got and positive for what you’ll get from life.
“Because of your smile, you make life more beautiful.”
– Thich Nhat Hanh
You are influencing your happiness.
Stop expecting others to make you happy. Choose to be happy whatever happens.
“My happiness grows in direct proportion to my acceptance, and in inverse proportion to my expectations.”
– Michael J. Fox
We all have to face difficult times. It’s up to us to choose how we react.
“Never give up, and be confident in what you do. There may be tough times, but the difficulties which you face will make you more determined to achieve your objectives and to win against all the odds.”
Actions are the fuel into your happiness. Some will work and others won’t. Keep going on anyway.
“Every day is a new day, and you’ll never be able to find happiness if you don’t move on.”
– Carrie Underwood
Being idle won’t prevent the bad days.
Maybe it’s time for your to “Take Control” of your life!!!
We can’t change the past. We only have control over what we choose to do now.
« It’s not what happens to you, but how you react to it that matters. »
As things unfold, it’s already too late change it. You have the power over how you choose to react.
In your life, you’ll face the good, the bad and the ugly. We all do.
It’s up to us to choose how it will define us or not.
Be the change that you want to see in your life.
Do you have a purpose in life?
Or are you following the mass?
If you think that following the mass is easier, you are misled. When you follow the mass, you deny yourself the opportunity to create something close to your heart.
“Great minds have purposes; others have wishes.”
– Washington Irving
Before people becomes great, they started at the bottom as any one.
We can all be great. We can all find our purpose. We can all create something that will resonate in our heart.
Our creation has to be great for us before it can be for others. We need to see the value before anyone can.
“Do not fear mistakes. You will know failure. Continue to reach out. “
– Benjamin Franklin
