Be Happy (Part 1 of 2)

Stay happy

Don’t Worry, Be Happy

Almost everyone have heard the hit single Don’t Worry, Be Happy by Bobby McFerrin. The song has a very catchy way of conveying its message of being happy to everyone. Bobby McFerrin‘s simple message surely made a lot of people by telling them not to worry.

Living a happy, resilient and optimistic life is wonderful, and is also good for your health. Being happy actually protects you from the stresses of life. Stress is linked to top causes of death such as heart disease, cancer and stroke.

‘The only thing in life that will always remain the same is change’

 – Bobby McFerrin

 

In our life we have the power to make the necessary changes if we want to. Even if we find ourselves in an unbearable situation we can always find solace in the knowledge that it too would change.

Social networks or relationships are essential to happiness. People are different, accept people for who or what they are, avoid clashes, constant arguments, and let go of all kinds of resentments.

If arguments seem unavoidable still try and make an effort to understand the situation and you might just get along with well with

It is everywhere

Happiness is actually found in everyone, increasing it is a way to make a life more wonderful and also more healthy.

To be happy is relatively easy, just decide to be a happy person. Abraham Lincoln observed that most people for most of the time can choose how happy or stressed, how relaxed or troubled, how bright or dull their outlook to be. The choice is simple really, choose to be happy.

There are several ways by which you can do this

Being grateful is a great attitude

We have so much to be thankful for. Thank the taxi driver for bringing you home safely, thank the cook for a wonderful dinner and thank the guy who cleans your windows.

Also thank the mailman for bringing you your mails, thank the policeman for making your place safe and thank God for being alive.

Consciously Choosing A Positive Attitude (Part 2 of 2)

Miss out the first part? Read it here!

 

Continuation:

 

Choosing a positive attitude is a process. We don’t just choose it once and expect everything to be perfect from that moment on. We will still experience setbacks, delays, accidents, frustrations, arguments, fatigue, and fear.

To reiterate, it is our choice

The secret is how we choose to react to these experiences. Do we want to let them ruin our day? Do we choose to pick ourselves up and look hopefully to the future again? We do have the power to choose.

You may be asking what the point of a positive attitude is. If we’ll still experience negative circumstances, why bother with choosing a positive attitude?

Ah, that’s the true beauty of the creative process. What we choose to focus on the most, we create in our lives.

By choosing a positive attitude each day, we are actually attracting more positive experiences. Thus, reducing the likelihood of negative experiences.

You may have noticed that each experience often determines the quality of the next experience. This almost always causing a chain reaction in our lives. If one little thing goes wrong, it can throw off our plans for the rest of the day.

In this context, it’s easy to see how a positive attitude would be powerful. Rather than allowing one little thing to ruin our day, we would be able to shrug it off and continue on without a hitch.

Over time, this resiliency begins to strengthen and empower us, which will show through in our demeanor. We begin attracting people and experiences that more closely match our attitude.

Before we know it, out lives eventually transform into more positive, fulfilling expressions of joy.

And it all begins with a little thing called attitude!

Again, this is a process, so go easy on yourself if you’re trying to adopt a more positive attitude. Simply focus on developing a stronger awareness of your attitude moment to moment in your daily experiences.

Begin choosing a more positive one more often. It takes time to realize the full benefits of this type of mindset, but it is time well-spent.

Before you know it, you’ll be one of those people you used to admire for their tenacity and strength. Your life will transform in amazing ways.

Consciously Choosing A Positive Attitude (Part 1 of 2)

It’s our choice

Do you consciously choose your attitude each day? If you’re like most people, probably not. Most of us tend to let our circumstances choose our attitude for us.

We’re in a good mood as long as we get up on time. We feel best when the kids cooperate and get to school on time. We are happy when the car starts without a problem. Even if we don’t encounter any traffic jams on the way to work.

Good mood when the boss doesn’t yell and our workload is manageable. This system can work fine as long as everything runs smoothly in our lives.

But that’s not always the case, is it?

Situations don’t always adhere to our expectations. Accidents happen. Delays happen. Spouses and bosses can be difficult to please. Vehicles break down. Kids may resist our efforts to keep the schedule running smoothly.

What happens to our attitude then? If we don’t make the effort to consciously choose a positive attitude, we run the risk of developing a negative one at random.

For starters, how would our lives change if we consciously chose a positive attitude each day?

  1. Feel much happier about our lives.
  2. Feel more motivated about pursuing our dreams because we believe in the possibilities for making them a reality.
  3. Be able to enjoy the time spent with our friends and families more.
  4. Want to share our joy with others.
  5. Feel strong and empowered in our ability to do anything we set our minds to.
  6. Be able to overcome challenges with ease because we’d have a strong belief in our own skills and abilities.
  7. Be able to love deeply and completely without fear of rejection or betrayal.
  8. We would pause to enjoy the smaller, more precious moments in life, without feeling pressured to do more, be more, or prove our worthiness.

Wow, it sounds awesome, doesn’t it?

Is it really possible to feel that way all the time? Yes, but probably not in the way you’re imagining it. Just because we choose a positive attitude doesn’t mean that our lives will transform into smoothly-flowing works of art and stay that way forever.

Continuous Learning (Part 1 of 3)

Learn is define as to gain or acquire knowledge of or skill in something by study, experience, or being taught. It is vital to our survival. Inability to learn is fatal

When people ask me what business I’m in, I often say, “I’m in the learning business.” It sounds intriguing, and it is certainly true. But, truth be told, we are all in the learning business.

Why?

Because as humans, we are learning machines. We are most alive and functioning closest to our potential when we are learning, adapting, adjusting, and finding new ways. As well as approaches and techniques to improve our lives or others in some way.

I believe in the above statements. They are as true as any other statement I could write here. But rather than talking about the philosophy of humankind, let me get much more pragmatic.

Change and Learning

Change is all around us. Some say the rate of change is increasing. True or not, this is definitely a fact in our business lives. Products change, Customers change, process and policies change. We are put on a new team, we are entering new markets, and we have set new goals. In all parts of our daily professional lives change surrounds us.

In order for us to cope with that change, we need to be willing and able to change. And learning is a key component in developing that ability.

So when I talk about continuous learning or life long learning, I’m not suggesting everyone needs to take a course at their local college, or go back to school for a new degree.

Continuous learning is an attitude and a set of behaviors. It allow us to succeed in our ever-changing environment. I can say the best turning point who we are today into who we want to be tomorrow. Change requires learning and conversely, there is no learning without change.

The Law Of Attraction Secret (Part 2 of 2)

Do not dare to miss the first part.

 

Continuation:

 

Attitude of gratitude

This is why it is important to hold on to an attitude of gratitude for the things you already have. You can even be grateful for where you are in life right now, no matter how bad it is. That is the launching platform for your new improved life. Start from where you are. Wherever you are in life it is the right place for you right now. Just be satisfied to begin from where you are and you will soon get to where you want to go.

The future

Once you have identified those things in life you wish to have, begin to think of them often. Imagine that you are already in possession of them. This is you becoming at one with your desire. Once you can hold your desire in mind and see, feel and accept that you are in possession of it you have become your future vision.

This is being your desire. Look at children they are excellent at this. It is a natural state of mind and not as hard to achieve as you may imagine. Just allow yourself to do it. Have fun and play with your internal vision. Enjoy it!

Be flexible enough to allow the universe to deliver these things to you as it sees fit. However, you need to take action. The Bible tells us that, “faith without works is dead”, James 2:14-26.

Be ready to take some steps towards your goal. No matter how small or insignificant these steps are taken at least some action every day that will bring you closer to your desires.

You will soon find that as you take even small steps towards your desires and stay true to your inner vision the universe will rush to meet you. Coincidences will occur and you will find opportunities are presented to you. As long as you are generating positive emotions around your internal vision, your actions will be a pleasure and feel natural.

So remember, be what you desire, then do what you have to in order to bring you closer to those desires and then you will have everything you want!
