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. After all it’s your life. You have the right to choose the type of attitudes you want to adopt. We design and manifest our life according to the attitude we carry in us. So choose the thoughts and feelings that suits you in achieving your success not failure.
The problem with people is that they are not optimist and most of the time, they are living for the sake of other people. They are going out there to achieve other people’s dreams. Where are your goals in life? If you want to achieve your success, start identifying what is it that you truly want instead of what other people want. This is not being selfish. If you can’t even satisfy your needs, how can you satisfy other people’s needs?
If you don’t have something, how can you give it to someone else? Imagine the something as your needs. If you do not know how to fulfill your own needs, how will you fulfill other people’s needs? We begin doing that by living our life for our sake not for someone else’s sake. Live for your self. Isn’t this your life? Do the things that makes you happy not other people happy. Everyone is responsible for their own happiness in life.
Again, I am not suggesting you to be selfish, but I am suggesting you to create a satisfying life by evaluating your needs first and giving priority to it. Identify your inner needs, figure out which is good and which is not good for yourself, choose and do something about it. Only when you are satisfied with your life, you can contribute positively to the life around you. If you are hungry and don’t have money, can you feed the hunger of other’s and give money to those who needs it?
Oftentimes, we believe someone else or something is controlling our life. The truth is we control our own life through our own thoughts and feelings. If you can learn to control your thoughts and the way you feel, you can design the life you want easily. Don’t let your thinking control you but make sure it is you who control your thinkings. You should be the master of your mind instead of the slave of your mind.
There are few things you can do to check and keep yourself having positive outlook in life. Find out if you are clear about your goals in life, find out how to keep a positive outlook in any negative situation or environment and find out how you can direct and adapt yourself to the changes arising in your life from this ever changing world. You can make a difference in the way you live your life.
Remember this, nobody is born with greatness, but greatness are bestowed to them by the way they live their life. So how do you want to live your life? Positively or negatively? Decide for yourself.
