Have you ever felt, that everything just seem to be going wrong with you, sometimes feeling severe headache that you just feel like walking away from your work place, you feel as if you can’t depend on anyone anymore and sometimes wondering what is your purpose in life, hoping that you are not just filling some kind of God’s quota? They are the result of repetitious living process and lack of creativity in life.
Well, take sometime off maybe go for a vacation. If cant, try taking deep breath and relaxing whenever you can. Relaxation is the medicine for stress. One thing is for sure though, we can’t change people and people can’t change us. Change occurs from within our self by our own wanting or willingness. Our job is not to depend on anyone, but can other people rely on us? I mean can others count on us? That’s accountability. Be an example. Our attitude plays a role in helping others looking within themselves the need to teamwork in any work environment. Don’t be the effect of your circumstances instead circumstances should be your effect. Create situations. Be the cause. As you sow, so shall you reap.
If you want to get things done, sometimes you need to exercise your power (at work place, for an example) but do it with love instead of anger or frustration. Everyone have their role to play but the question is, are we facilitating suitable conditions for good teamwork environment? Not everyone are professionals. That’s where people like us come handy. We need to be living examples for others. Do your work with love instead of anger. When you speak, no matter how bad is the situation, talk with a smile or love in your heart. It eases the other persons emotions and remember, you are certainly not here to fulfill a quota. You are here to learn something and that is love. If you can love and have love, than you have everything.
When you are in any type of problem, ask yourself, what is this situation trying to teach me? God waits for us in every problem. It means God is trying to teach us something through the problem. Actually it is our own opinion and attitude that limits our ability to comprehend whats right in front of us – the truth of the matter and it is also true, not everyone can see this truth. It’s just people are not ready to expand their perception to such a level. Like it or not, the divine principle is at work, behind every life circumstances.
No one can really fully do what their heart desires. We all live within a certain limitations. Some of us have commitments to family, sister or friends that we sacrifice our own desires for the betterment of others. There is nothing wrong with that but usually it is because we often do something for others that we forget what is important for us. I am not saying we have to be selfish and forget others, but it is also important to reconsider our hearts desire. Everyone is responsible for their own life. Sooner or later we all have to become independent.
Let’s get something straight here. If you want to go through life with ease of mind without feeling lost,
1.you need to know exactly where you stand in the scheme of things (life) and
2.you need to know what you really want to have or be in your life and
3.knowing where you stand and what you want, you need to re-negotiate a way to achieve what you want or where you want to be.
I don’t have to tell you all these. I am sure you know them. You feel lost because you don’t have a sense of direction in life. That direction is actually what you really want in life. If you are thinking about marriage than find someone nice and get married. If you want a better profession, change your job or venture into business. Study your own thoughts and feelings. What is it you really want? Be honest with yourself. Don’t deny your feelings. Life is hard because we make it hard. It is because we lack deeper perceptions.
Look at every condition of life as a gift from God for growth. Why do people suffer? It is because lack of courage to face their own fears. Everyone have worries and fears but we cannot let it control us. The way to be free from fear is to replace it with love. Love can be felt as well as seen. When you see love it appears as light. That is the light of God. So, ultimately, lack of God’s light or love in our life is the reason for all sufferings. This is what Buddha, Jesus, Mohamed and all the great saints have said. It is important to have an anchor point in life. A stable anchor to harbor our life is with God. Since It (God) is the only factor that doesn’t change; always stable and present. Faith is important. Faith builds strength and strength gives motivation to carry on in life. Eventually life becomes a journey full of love and wonder.
Getting stress out of your life takes more than prayer alone. You must take action to make changes and stop doing whatever is causing the stress. You can learn to calm down in the way you handle things. – Joyce Meyer
