What Are You Contributing To Life

Everyday, in so many ways, we can see people getting irritated, angry or sulking over small little things in life that upsets them be it in family, workplace or simply while hanging out among friends. This is often more true when one is rushing for something and suddenly something goes wrong, specially in at workplace.

I often wonder why it is so easy for people to react in anger easily compared to reacting with love and patience. Habit? Perhaps it is. On the other hand, perhaps it is because one is not have a positive outlook. There are many things happening around us we need to become aware, and there are more things to do in life that anger should not matter.

Positive Mental Attitude

Positive Mental Attitude

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.

Inspirational Story: The Donkey That Sits On A Nail

Inspirational Story: The Donkey That Sits On A Nail

Once upon a time, there lived a young man who was a strong believer in metaphysics. We will call him Tom. Tom constantly seeks out astrologers, soothsayers and the like, by the five-foot-ways, in temples and in the most inconceivable places in order to seek spiritual advice on virtually every aspect of his life.

One day, Tom went to see a famous Zen hermit who was residing in a limestone cave who was known for fortune telling and his enlighten philosophies. Arriving at the cave where the old wise man was residing, Tom saw the old man sitting cross-legged on the floor and stroking his silvery beard. Looking at Tom, the wise old man asked Tom what he wanted to know.

“Master, I want to know what is wrong with me. Why is it that I am always up against all the odds? Why am I not doing any better?”, replied Tom.

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.

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.

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.

Purpose Of Life

Purpose Of Life

It is staggering, but the fact is not many among us understand this; that the purpose of life experiences is to awaken us to our true identity – soul and until the day you realize and ‘discover yourself as soul’, live and function consciously from that state, your learning experiences in this world will not end.

One might ask why it has to be like this at all; why we have to be put into such tasks of learning something in this world.

If I say, you were not put here by someone or something else but you have chosen to be here by your own free will, can it satisfy your mind? Can you have peace of mind? No amount of answer can satisfy our thirst of an answer until we experience first hand and realize the truth about how we were before and how we came down to this lower world.

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.

What Is An Opportunity?

What Is An Opportunity?

What do you think of opportunity? I know it can mean different thing for different people, but what does it means personally to you? Do we create opportunity or do we wait for the opportunity to come to us? Some say we should create opportunities, while some others say we should wait.

In the case of creating opportunity, we have to have the right resources or a least enough of it; if not how can we create the opportunity? Resources in this context can be money or knowledge. On the other hand, if we wait for the opportunity, how certain can we be that it will arrive? It isn’t easy to predict if we don’t know the way. Waiting is like gambling and that is not a wise way of getting or achieving something.
