Do not do to others what angers you if done to you by others. If you treat an individual as he is, he will remain how he is. But if you treat him as if he were what he ought to be and could be, he will become what he ought to be and could be.
Beginning today, treat everyone you meet as if they were going to be dead by midnight. Extend to them all the care, kindness and understanding you can muster, and do it with no thought of any reward. Your life will never be the same again. Throughout history there have been many who have defied those with negative attitudes around them. Because of their willingness to fight against the negative energy around them they were able to leave behind impeccable legacies for the rest of mankind to follow after. In the lives of these great people there were many who stood along their paths being negative and casting opinions of them that could have only tore them down if they had listened.
Don’t be one of these naysayers in the life of anyone. Appreciate people the same way as you want them to appreciate you. And if people start to acknowledge others work, the world can become a better place with so many skilled and knowledgeable people. Appreciation also help individuals to further specialize in their fields. For instance, if you acknowledge a designer, he will not only like “the nice words”, but will also work ever harder so as to maintain the same level of knowledge and creativity.
Never tell someone that they cant accomplish dreams or goals that they truly believe in.. There is a huge difference between criticism that will help a person build versus criticism that will only tear a person down. Throughout life, people will make you mad, disrespect you and treat you bad. Let God deal with the things they do, because hate in your heart will consume you too. Do right. Do your best. Treat others as you want to be treated.
Never lose sight of the fact that the most important yardstick of your success will be how you treat other people. Choose your words wisely, and be sure that everything that you say or do can be used for good and not for negativity. Be an encouragement!
Your blessings lay beyond your fear. Live life, regret nothing. Take chances. Tell the truth. Date someone totally wrong for you. Say no. Spend all your cash. Get to know someone random. Be random. Say I love you. Sing out loud. Laugh at stupid jokes. Cry. Apologize. Tell someone how much they mean to you. Tell a jerk what you think. Laugh till your stomach hurts. Live life. Regret nothing.
When you give yourself permission to communicate what matters to you in every situation you will have peace despite rejection or disapproval. Putting a voice to your soul helps you to let go of the negative energy of fear and regret. But in all of the sadness, when you’re feeling that your heart is empty, and lacking, You’ve got to remember that grief isn’t the absence of love. Grief is the proof that love is still there.
Life is a balance of hanging on and letting go.In the moment, shut down the mind and let intuition give you the answer. Have no regrets. Nothing you did could have changed anything. And that being angry and blaming yourself for not being able to control the past or the future is only going to hurt worse. If you keep thinking like this, you will only be re-inventing pain. In life you find pleasure. In life you find pain. Pain and pleasure is an example of the duality in life. Enjoy them both, they are part of the ride. The key is to not turn the pain into something else-regret.
Accept everything about yourself – I mean everything, You are you and that is the beginning and the end – no apologies, no regrets. When you’re happy you find pure joy in your life. There are no regrets in this state of happiness – and that’s a goal worth striving for in all areas of your life. Regret comes late. Don’t wait for him!
Happiness in intelligent people is the rarest thing I know.Happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony. If you look to others for fulfillment, you will never be fulfilled. If your happiness depends on money, you will never be happy with yourself. Be content with what you have; rejoice in the way things are. When you realize there is nothing lacking, the world belongs to you.
Happiness goes further than the exhilarating awareness we experience when we expect something good to happen to us. It is about a constant effort to make positive changes and choices to re wire the brain to start to produce ‘happy pathways’ and alter it from repetitious pessimistic behaviour patterns and thoughts which result in unhappiness. What I learned was that, although you can’t be happy all of the time, you can be happy most of the time. You just need to recognize more of the happiness that’s already happening.
If you want to be happy, set a goal that commands your thoughts, liberates your energy, and inspires your hopes. You cannot judge what should bring others joy, and others cannot judge what should bring you joy. True happiness is not attained through self-gratification, but through fidelity to a worthy purpose. One of the secrets of happiness originates from our thoughts. Years of indoctrinating ourselves with negative and harmful thoughts have resulted in unhappiness. However, all this can change by taking accountability and simply maintaining your thoughts and fixing them on happy events. This is not an overnight ‘fix’, so patience and endurance is paramount in achieving the end result which is of course happiness!
Happiness is not only important to our personal and societal lives, it is important to our global community because happiness is not having what you want. It is appreciating what you have. Try not to take small things for granted, remember how it felt to be a small child choosing an ice cream or the feeling of sand on our toes. Remember, happiness is a choice we make as adults, why not smile today and see what happens because the best way to pay for a lovely moment is to enjoy it.
No one is useless in this world who lightens the burdens of another. In life we have to give to receive, Give love to get love, share joy to feel joy. Be good to someone and feel good about ourselves.
It is every man’s obligation to put back into the world at least the equivalent of what he takes out of it because the value of a man resides in what he gives and not in what he is capable of receiving. Ever noticed how it is great to receive a great gift from someone, but it is seemingly much better to be able to go and give someone the desires of their heart? Just as it is better for the soul to give physical presents, it is also better for the soul to help inspire others along with being inspired ourselves. We should all make an effort to try to inspire another person daily. Inspiring another person may not always seem like it is something that we are able to fit in our busy agendas or daily plans, but is something that can be easily done. You get the best out of others when you give the best of yourself.
Giving frees us from the familiar territory of our own needs by opening our mind to the unexplained worlds occupied by the needs of others. You may never know half of the troubles that someone may be experiencing in life, and you never know the power and change that a few words from a stranger or someone that you are close to, may be able to bring to their lives. Since you get more joy out of giving joy to others, you should put a good deal of thought into the happiness that you are able to give.
Before giving, the mind of the giver is happy; while giving, the mind of the giver is made peaceful; and having given, the mind of the giver is uplifted. Whatever you think the world is withholding from you, you are withholding from the world.Whatever you think people are withholding from you–praise, appreciation, assistance, loving care, and so on–give it to them. You cannot receive what you don’t give. Outflow determines inflow. Blessed are those who can give without remembering, and take without forgetting because a small thing you do can mean everything in another person’s life. Never get tired of doing little things for others, sometimes those little things occupy the biggest parts of their hearts.
There are many things in life that bring unhappiness. Circumstances can bring sadness, grief, and a sense of bewilderment. Be joyful in hope patient in affliction faithful in prayer.
God NEVER expects us be happy that we are experiencing difficulties. He’s not even happy that we are experiencing them. What we are to be happy or joyful about is the fact that he is at work in our life, he is going to do something great, he is going to reveal himself to us in ways we can not even imagine. We are to be joyful in the hope of what he is about to do in our life.
One of the most powerful catalyst in anyone’s life is the hope that they have in life, and the belief that if they keep their hope at a high level, even in times that life is testing them, that they will be blessed enough to go places in life that they could have never foresaw. A lot of us don’t have a clear vision of where we are going in life, but as long as there is some sort of vision, a lot of motivation in our heart, and a flame of hope inside of us that will never go out, chances are that we will achieve great things, and will go very far in our lives.
Hope is a tool that we all need in our lives to help to keep us afloat when it seems as though we are surely drowning, because hope is that voice that whispers in your head that convinces you to keep going, while other voices are screaming at you in an effort to stop you from trying. The honest fact is that none of us can even get out of bed in the morning if our God doesn’t want us to. He is every aspect of every second of our day. He thinks about us more than there are grains of sand on the sea shore.
No matter what our situation is, we can pray with joy because of our hope in God no matter what our current situation is. We can remain patient, persevering through affliction, by presenting our requests and intercessions to God with thanksgiving. Prayer is God’s gift to us so that we can be patient and joyful, even when things don’t appear to be going well. Prayer does not come easily. It takes consistent application in order to discover the great benefits that prayer bring to the life of the believer. Faithfulness in prayer shapes the heart of the believer in ways that no other activity can, and once you have experienced the power of prayer it is hard to live without it.
When you know that God has a detailed plan and purpose for your life and you know that God wants to be glorified in your life, you are going to endure the difficulties, and you are going to have hope in hopeless situations. Don’t quit in hard times; pray all the harder.
Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not: nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent.
You may encounter many defeats, but you must not be defeated. In fact, it may be necessary to encounter the defeats, so you can know who you are, what you can rise from, how you can still come out of it. When God sees someone who doesn’t quit, he looks down and says ” now there is someone I can use. This life is not easy! It is often fraught with pain and suffering. But hope gives you a lilting up -thrust that takes you above the suffering. Storms sweep down upon human beings individually. They sweep down over society. But if you hope in God and do the right thing, storms pass after a while.
Whenever you make a mistake or get knocked down by life, don’t look back at it too long. Mistakes are life’s way of teaching you. Your capacity for occasional blunders is inseparable from your capacity to reach your goals. No one wins them all, and your failures,when they happen, are just part of your growth. Shake off your blunders.
How will you know your limits without an occasional failure? Never quit. Your turn will come.
Life is like riding a bicycle. You don’t fall off unless you plan to stop peddling. Let us not be content to wait and see what will happen, but give us the determination to make the right things happen. Know what you want to do, hold the thought firmly, and do every day what should be done, and every sunset will see you that much nearer the goal. Don’t let obstacles stand in your way; learn to view failures as an opportunity to find out what works and what doesn’t work; develop the inner attitude of patience, persistence, and perseverance; and, defeat your own procrastination through action not dreaming.
Persistent people begin their success where others end in failure because greatness is not where we stand, but in what direction we are moving. All you need is the plan, the road map, and the courage to press on to your destination. A day will never be anymore than what you make of it. Practice being a doer!
Success is liking what you do, and liking how you do it. We don’t or at least we aren’t supposed to be living our lives in hopes of making everyone else happy by our accomplishments. Though we are supposed to live our lives helping others and making this world a better place, we must do so as ourselves.
To accomplish great things, you must not only act, but also dream, not only plan, but also believe. Be a dreamer, a believer, and a courageous and cheerful thinker. Be a positive motivator, a productive doer, and a go-getter who keeps her head in the clouds and her feet on the ground. Be about what you say you are about. The time you have to prove to the world that you are who you say you are is limited. We are only afforded a short amount of time while we are here and to make the best use of it we have to do much more than talk about the things we would like to do. Let the spirit of passion and possibility ignite a fire within you to do something worthwhile today, and don’t forget to spread your enthusiasm to those around you.
One thing that you have to remember is that if you don’t believe in yourself no one else will. You have to realize that you are in control of your own success. You can’t let others’ opinions of you affect how your life ends up. To step into the life we would like to see, and to really embody the person we would like to be we have to get over the jitters. There’s no excuse for being an amateur forever. Life is short. Get past the fear of failing or making mistakes and get to flying. One way that you can help yourself do this is by making a plan, and setting reasonable short term goals alongside real long term goals. Not everything will go according to plan at all times, but this is a good way to get past your initial fears.
Don’t let the fear of not being accepted stop you from being who you really are. Strive to show everyone that being who you really are is the only way that you can truly be accepted. You can never be a success in life by trying to be someone that you aren’t, true success comes from being able to show the world who you truly are, and how they love you because of it. Also, be sure to live in the now. You are no longer who you were in the past, and you will get to your future in due time. Focus on making positive moves in the present move, never forget to live out each day. Listen to people who have the things you want in life. Don’t take advice from losers. You’ll end up with what they have. Always strive to better yourself!
