Simplify Your Life

Why do you need to simplify your life? Unlike the popular belief that says that we simplify life to get rid of some of the work we are to do, the real reason you need to simplify life is because when you simplify your life, you can manage your life better. What it means is that, we take full responsibility of managing our life.

f you learn to use creative visualization in your life, you can manifest wonderful things in your life. It is true creative visualization has great powers in it. There are literally thousands of people if not millions, from sales person to motivational trainers who will affirm to the power of creative visualization.

Creative visualization is about imagining what we want in life clearly in our mind and manifesting it in our life. If you are a non-believer and being, skeptical about the power of visualization, ask yourself, have you ever at one time or another in your life have said these statements, “I am unloved”, “I am always unlucky”, or “I’ll never have those things in life”, etc. ? That’s negative visualization.

Having A Powerful Goal

Having A Powerful Goal

Have you ever thought why you are not achieving your goals? It’s because your goals are not powerful and is vague. Your goals have to be great and clear enough to set your imagination on fire. Your goals must excite your imagination. Something powerful always excites the mind – either positively or negatively.

How To Change Others

How To Change Others

Don’t ever try to change anyone. It won’t work. You will only waste your time trying. Yet, that is how reality is nowadays. People spend an awful lot of time trying to change others. They try to change their children, change their spouse, change their employees, change their colleagues, change their friends or even try to change their relatives.

Why do people try to change others? People do it because people believe if they can change them, they will become better and will make them happier. The truth is people try to change others to make their own self happy, because if other people listen us, wouldn’t our life becomes easier?

If you have read the story about Mahatma Ghandi, you’d probably agree he was especially tuned in to futility of changing people and yet, history shows that he probably was one of the most influential people in history who’ve brought changes to millions of people.

If people go to Ghandi and ask, “I like the idea of non-violence, but there are others who don’t. How do we change them?”, and he would reply, “you cannot change others but you must be the change you wish to see in them”. That’s one profound truth about changing others.

We Are Responsible For Our Life Experiences

We Are Responsible For Our Life Experiences

I had a conversation on the phone with an old friend a while ago. While talking he touched on the topic of palm leaf readings by the Indian Rishis (sage), a script written on a kind of palm leaf and used to read and tell the past life of any one who wants to get the reading.

In the conversation he were telling me about how important it is for one to find out about their own past life and do whatever they can to solve the past life karma to make this life better and according to him, if we can do that palm leaf reading, we can solve it. He is very convinced we can change our destiny through it.

You Can Make A Difference

You Can Make A Difference

We are a miracle of God. We have within us the creativity to make a difference in the community we are living. Whatever other’s are doing for commercial purpose is their business, but you and me, can bring change positively to the life around us. It’s not about what others are doing but it’s about what we are doing to influence positively the life around us.

Do you know a drop of water if gathered enough can become an ocean? Likewise, if every one of us in this world decide and take the responsibility to bring change in the community we are living, this world will definitely be a better place to live in. There will be so much of goodness done to those who needs it much.

There is a Buddhist temple which conducts a special activity every now and then. What they do in the activity is, they buy as many live fish as they can and release them back into the river. Does that bring any difference? Maybe you think no, but they do safe a fish from becoming the victim of human desire to eat flesh and for me and that’s a kind act. To the fish of course, but that’s life too. What are they showing to us? That all life matters.

We definitely won’t get a Nobel Prize from the Nobel Foundation for our small but silent service but we do and will get a “noble prize” in many different ways. We get satisfaction from doing something good to the life as a whole. Even if the act is as simple as giving a smile to someone, it is still a noble act. Nobody is born great but you get bestowed with greatness through the deeds you do. That’s is a great ‘Nobel Prize’ if you ask me.

You have to be a great person to make that change like Mahatma Gandhi, Nelson Mandela or Martin Luther King. They were not born great. They were just like you and me but they took responsibility to bring about change in the community they were living. If you realize the value of helping, you will make that move and help out to make your community a better place.

Why helping is important? Think about it, you see people begging in the street and you walk by ignoring them. What if someday, suddenly what you have is taken away? Do you think they will be in such condition if they are capable? Sometimes, we see this blind people coming to us and asking for donation, do you think if they have capacity to see like you do, they will even ask? Helping is about being thankful for what we have.

I have seen some people ignoring these people saying, “oh.. its their karma, why must I care” or “it’s just their bad luck”, but what they don’t realize is that they were given a chance to something good. If not for such people, do you think you can even get that chance to do good deeds? That doesn’t mean we let them be in such a way because that’s the purpose they are there. What I mean is we are living in a dynamic world where we all need each other to grow, both materially and spiritually.

You, yes you who is reading this now, do you think you can bring change and make a difference in your life and the community you are living in? Do you believe that all it takes is for you to begin first not expecting others to start? If I thought the same way that someone else have to do it, this blog would not exist. Yet, you know what, Henry Ford once said, “If you think you can or you think you cannot, either way, you are right”, because that’s what you believe in. You can always change your belief and believe otherwise.

Make that change and bring the difference in someone’s life today. Even if is a small act of kindness such as smiling or being friendly, it does matters. You do have an impact on other people’s life. It’s never too late to start doing anything.

What Are You Contributing To Life

What Are You Contributing To Life

Everyday, in so many ways, we can see people getting irritated, angry or sulking over small little things in life that upsets them be it in family, workplace or simply while hanging out among friends. This is often more true when one is rushing for something and suddenly something goes wrong, specially in at workplace.

I often wonder why it is so easy for people to react in anger easily compared to reacting with love and patience. Habit? Perhaps it is. On the other hand, perhaps it is because one is not have a positive outlook. There are many things happening around us we need to become aware, and there are more things to do in life that anger should not matter.

Positive Mental Attitude

Positive Mental Attitude

There is really very little difference among people. If you look at the rich and successful people, and if you believe you can’t have similar success, you are thinking negatively. This is the little difference between the successful and those who are not. The successful people think positively. They have positive outlook in life. They are optimist not pessimist.

You too can be successful and create a happy life the way you want. You begin by adopting similar positive mental attitudes and outlook in life.

Being Clear About Our Goals In Life

Being Clear About Our Goals In Life

I often encourage people to have a clear goal in life. Just why is it so important to have a clear goal? There is an interesting inspirational story about a fox that failed to catch a rabbit which explains well why we need to know our goals clearly.

In the story, the foxes had a meeting to nominate one among them to catch a rabbit for dinner. The nominated fox spotted a rabbit and commenced a chase. The rabbit was very fast. It ran with great ingenuity and speed. Though the fox pursued the rabbit using all of the skills available, the rabbit managed to escape. The foxes, then had a postmortem meeting to analyze the race. They were sure the objectives of the chase could have been achieved if only the nominated fox had been more skillful.

Dealing With Grief And Loss

Dealing With Grief And Loss

No matter what we have lost in life, we should not get upset about it because when one door closes, another door will always open. That’s one of the law of life. Whenever something is taken away from us, it means something good is on its way to us. We need to have enough of patience to wait and see it. If you feel you have lost everything, take a look at what you still have and compare it with others who don’t have it. Aren’t you lucky? This is another reason for being thankful. Reflect it.

However, the question I want to raise in this article is ‘why did we loss it in the first place?’. Perhaps your answer will because you didn’t take care of it well or because you took it for granted. I look at it this way: we didn’t need it, that’s why we lost it in the first place. Nothing will ever leave us as long as we need it in our life. They will exist as long as we need to learn something out of it. Once we have learned the lesson, those things will leave us and something else will come to teach us something new.

Asking God For Help

Asking God For Help

There are a lot of people out there in the world who still believes in the concept that God will do all the good things for us if only we believe in it. They believe God will take care of everything and they don’t have to do anything. I don’t think there is any guideline like that in any of the world religious or even spiritual scriptures.

Below the surface of things, we find people like this are often passive and introverted. They live in hopes and wishes without ever doing something to achieve their goals. There is nothing wrong with having hopes, but if you cannot be materially self sufficient, than there is something wrong.
