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.

Mistakes Equals Wrong Point Of Views

Mistakes Equals Wrong Point Of Views

A wrong is a wrong. There is no two ways about it. If you know something or anything that you are doing will slow down your or others progress in life, why would you want to do it? Why do people do all the wrong things anyway even though they know it is wrong? Maybe because they think they can get away with it or maybe because they are not having the correct viewpoints.

If you think you can get away with whatever mistakes you’ve done, you are wrong. We can’t get away because whatever we do belongs to us. Can you say your actions are not your actions? What goes around comes around. It’s the law of cause and effect – as you sow so shall you reap. What you give you get back. If you have injured the heart of someone, you will get back the exact experience.

Maybe you won’t face the exact situation, but there will be a situation which will show you the mental torments and emotional toils you caused others through your deeds. Until we learn to function the way we are suppose to function in life, we will go round and round again through many cycles of life until the lesson is learned. Each thoughts, words and actions must be carefully selected in order to not to create unwanted reactions.

Find Your Talent

Find Your Talent

There is a story about a Jewish couple in England sometime ago who set their heart on having a son. When a son was born to them, they insisted that he should be a genius. His records in school however, dismayed his parents who had to employ a number of tutors to help the boy scrape through his examinations from one class to the next.

After completing school with the greatest of difficulty, the boy was sent to Oxford, where he did not fare any better. In order to avoid discrimination, the family changed their name from a typically Jewish one to Abercrombie.

One day, Mr. and Mrs. Abercrombie went to Wembley Station in London to see a football match between England and Scotland. Their son was playing for England and the stadium was a sea of heads. Suddenly, the game progressed, the spectators were so excited that they stood up and shouted in unison, “Abercrombie got the ball, Abercrombie got the ball, Abercrombie is a genius”.

Daily Problems In Life

Daily Problems In Life

Down here in this physical universe, wherever we go or whatever we do, we are sure to find a wall somewhere, limiting us from doing what we want to do, but well, that’s how it in this world. Do you agree?

What are these walls and why do they exist? Let’s say we are doing something now, and everything is going smoothly and suddenly there is a problem blocking us from achieving the goal of what we were doing in life. This is the block or the wall. Sometime we create them by our own; sometimes they are created by others for us.

These blocks or problems can come in any form, sometimes in the form of problems at work, sometimes as problems in relationship or sometimes as health problems. If our perception about them is correct, we will realize they come to teach us something important and take us to the next level in our spiritual growth.

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?
