Momentary Happiness

Momentary Happiness

Happiness is a momentary balance. When everything in our life is going smoothly and is well balanced we have happiness. When we are faced with conflicts and challenges, we are unhappy. We cannot find permanent happiness in this world because of the dual nature of this world. Happiness and sadness must co-exist. Sometimes we are happy, sometimes we are not. Life is a cycle. It is an ongoing process.

Train Yourself For Chaos

Train Yourself For Chaos

When I began starting businesses, I used to try to get everything to run smoothly. That’s what I was trained to do in business school. Their educational mission was to teach us to get everyone and everything to work perfectly in business. Nice concept on paper.

In real life, nothing ever runs perfectly. Once I was in the real business world, something or someone was always going wrong. People would screw up. Materials wouldn’t be delivered on time. Customers wouldn’t pay their bills. Nothing seemed to work smoothly – the way I thought they would if I worked at it hard enough. I spent all my time putting out fires and frustrated myself to no end. Eventually, I quit trying to train myself to handle things perfectly, because perfection so rarely happened.

Overcoming Failure

Overcoming Failure

So you have failed to achieve something you want to achieve. It’s alright. Try again. If not, be glad you have learned as much as you can and move on. Let go of the negative emotions that comes along with failure and try doing something else. Failure in something doesn’t mean your world has ended or it’s the end of the world.

In my personal life experience, I have learned that there will always be something to learn in a failure. That is why we fail in the first place. We fail to learn. In fact failure is a preparation for success that is coming. If you don’t learn this particular lesson, how are you going to be prepared to handle something that success may bring along? So reflect on the lessons you can learn from the failure and move on without regrets.

How To Be Free From Worries

How To Be Free From Worries

There have been numerous scientific studies proving that worry is an unhealthy state of mind as it causes harm to our body and clouds our mind from clear thinking. When worrying about something is prolonged it causes stress which leads to depression. As a result we will live constantly in unhappiness.

Worry is the direct result of not knowing what to do about the things we are worrying about. If we know what to do and if we are sure what we do will result in the outcome we desire, we will not have worries. This means, worry is created by the uncertainties we face in life. The cure for worry, then, is finding certainties in whatever we set out to do.

Difficulties In Life

Difficulties In Life

Is there anything wrong with the way things are right now in your life? Let’s say you are having financial difficulties, perhaps you will feel that there is definitely a problem in your life because you are not in the situation you want to be. That perception will continue to exist as long as you see or perceive you condition to be wrong.

Consider this. You woke up this morning and saw the sky was clear and you decided to drive out for a picnic. Just when you arrive at the location it started to rain. You probably cursed the rain for ruining your wonderful day, but someone, perhaps a farmer living nearby may have been wishing for it to rain on that day. What happened could have been wrong for you but it was right for someone else.

Making Hard Decisions Are The Best

Making Hard Decisions Are The Best

It’s human nature to try and avoid making hard decisions, but I say the toughest ones are some of the best moments in life. Every time I’ve ever had to make a hard decision, I’ve always chosen the most difficult path. And these moments have become some of the most important and best turning points in my life. They made my life far richer than I could ever have dreamed, and were responsible for quantum jumps in my self confidence and inner security.

So, now I look for those hard decision – in fact, I’m eager to take them on. They don’t come around very often, but when they do, try to appreciate them for the opportunities they can offer. The problem with though decisions is that your intellect – as well as your friends and hired expert – will always caution you to go one way, while your heart tells you to pick another way. These decisions are usually choices between money and an idea or project that you believe in – even changing your career or spending your vacation building houses for the poor. Trust your heart – that’s what it’s there for.

Plan For The Worst

Plan For The Worst

Maybe it was my upbringing, but I’ve always expected and planned for the worst. It has been a great motivation for trying to do exactly what I’ve really wanted to do with my life, and not necessarily sticking to the “safe bets” in life.

In the early days of my business, I would sit in front of my telephone and try to get up the nerve to make calls and ask perfect strangers to toss some work my way. I wondered why it was so difficult to make each call – what was I afraid of? Then I’d ask myself, “What’s the worst thing that can happen if I make this call? Will the person reach through the wires, grab me by the throat and start squeezing?”
