The Importance Of Today In Our Life

The Importance Of Today In Our Life

Almost everyone has either one or more important days in life; for some, it may be their birthday, for some it may be their wedding day and for some other it may be when their first child was born. These are special days of course. However, have you ever thought how important and special is each and everyday we go through in life and do you know there are really no bad days in life? Do you realize the value of precious moments in life?

There is an exercise known as the ‘deathbed exercise’ which can help you to realize the value of each moment you have in life. To do the exercise, find a quiet time at home when no one is around. Go to your room and imagine yourself lying down on your deathbed and imagine clearly you are dying. Mentally visualize those people whom you want to say goodbye standing beside you. Speak to each one of them loudly, from your heart, and tell them all the things you have always wanted to tell them. If you do this exercise with intensity you can’t help but breaking down. Tears are sure to run down your cheek. You will cry and mourn for all the love you are loosing.

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.

Learning

Learning

In my previous article I wrote about how life teaches us. I’ll expand on that further in this article. If you have not read it, please read it first. If you have read it, do you agree that anything and everything can teach us something in life?

I’ll use another incident that happened in my kitchen last night. I love animals, but I killed two lizards last night. The first time, I was going to make myself a drink when I saw this lizard running here and there near the place I keep my plates.

I tried to make it run away outside through the nearby window, but it kept coming inside. I wasn’t angry, but I have this strange feeling about lizard and I don’t dare to catch it with my hand. So I used a mosquito spray and sprayed on it to make it weak and than I used a stick to kill it.

Good Advice

Good Advice

Advice are often considered as personal point of views offering some type of suggestions about certain situations given out to someone. An advice can come from someone ordinary like your neighbor, friends or relatives as well as, it can also come from qualified professionals.

People who give advice, usually give them as a guide to action or conduct about something. It can be a simple advice like how to polish your fingernails or can be a complete professional advice like getting legal suggestions on how to start up your own business. There are various types of advice. It can be a business advice, a dream advice, a spiritual advice, make up advice or even health advice.

However, each of these advice can only fit into two major category. They either have to be a good advice or bad advice. A good advice always builds you towards improving either yourself or something that you want to improve or learn up. Bad advice on the other hand, although may appear as if it is a good advice, will always get you into trouble because they are wrong advice.

What Determines Our Life Circumstances

What Determines Our Life Circumstances

In my previous article on finding opportunity, I asked if we create opportunities or wait for opportunities. In this article we will take a look at the phrase ‘to create’ and the postulates we carry in our mind and how they affect our life.

What does to create means? It means doing the activity of creating or being in creative activity. Do you know that we are constantly participating in the process of creating something?

When you are working in the office, for example, even though the work you are doing might be for your boss, your boss is actually creating something he wants through you. Creations are taking place everywhere.

The Key To Having Great Life

The Key To Having Great Life

Everyone wants to be happy and have a great life. Maybe you too want to have this so called great life. What does great life means to you? Is great life means living a life without worries or problems? Does having a great life means being financially free where you can have anything you want? Is it having a life without any health problem? Is it having complete freedom and happiness? What is it?

What does it really means and what is the key to having a great life? Simple reflection shows, people usually associate having a great life “with having something”. If they have that one thing they desire badly, life will be great for them. They will be completely happy and without worry. Normally it is about money and it’s not just about money but about having a lot of money.

Well, there is nothing wrong with that desire. It’s just a desire. If you really want that much of money to have your great life, the question you should be asking yourself is, what are you willing to sacrifice and do to achieve your desire? The problem with most people is that, they have big goals or dreams about having a great life but they never do anything about it.

Accepting Life As It Is

Accepting Life As It Is

Accepting life as it is for what it is means being aware of what is life, what is really happening in life and accepting it happily without resentments. We will be able to do that if we can learn the cause of our problems in life.

First, before accepting life as it is, you need to know that there are things in life you cannot change. These are known as principles of life or the laws of life. Life operates by these laws. There are many laws in this physical universe that we need to know, one for example is the law of cause and effect.

Lessons Learned In Life

Lessons Learned In Life

When we are born here, we are born according to our past life karma. Like it or not, we have to accept this karmic condition we are born into because it is the perfect condition for our spiritual learning experience. We are here to learn something.

Sometime we tend to believe our schooling ends when we are done with our formal educational system. The fact is learning never ends. Life itself is a school where we are to learn something of spiritual nature – about who we truly are.

Until we learn all these lessons, the schooling never ends. We will go through it again and again until we learn all about what we are to learn. Growth in life is based on learning. Each mistake is like trial and error experiments. Each time we make mistakes, we learn what works and what doesn’t.

Whom Do We Believe In Life ?

Whom Do We Believe In Life ?

The truth is no matter who you believe you have in life, you are always alone. Nothing belongs to you. In the end you will discover you came here alone and you are going to leave this world alone.

All the relationships or stuffs you have gained are only temporary. No one or nothing can be trusted. These people or things are constantly changing. You will never know how people or things will change in time.

Assets Are A Trap

Assets Are A Trap

You pay for your assets twice. Once in cold cash, and again in the limitations they place on your ability to make decisions to change your life.

We are all conditioned to believed that the game of life is won by the person who has the most assets when they finally bite the dust. “He Who Dies With The Most Toys Wins” – you’ve seen the bumper sticker, but nothing could be further from the truth. I find assets are a burden to life. The more assets I have, the more time I spend worrying about losing them, and the less time I spend having fun with my life – doing what I really want to do.

It’s Never Too Late

It’s Never Too Late

In 1996, the first of the baby boomers turned 50 years old. This means that there are tens of thousands of people going to work realizing that they have spent the last 20 years of their lives in a profession or job that they never really liked. They wound up there because of money, family, greed, insecurity, or just plain ignorance. I will bet 20 or 30 years ago, all they were thinking about was how to get a job that would feed them. By 50, most of these boomers have seen some of the world, their interests are more varied, and they’re figured out, at least MOST, of the major problem they were thinking about in their twenties. Knowing what they know now, they probably would have chosen a different career path, but they figure it’s too late now….is it?

It’s never too late to change. It’s never too late to make your life even more worthwhile. By the time you reach 50 or 60, you have a good chance of making it to 80 and even 90 years of age. For a 50 year old, that can mean 40 more years of life. And you might as well be doing what you really to be doing in the last 40 years of your life if you didn’t have the chance to do it in the first part of your life.
