Motivation

No one can motivate anyone to do anything.

All a person can do for another is provide them with incentives to motivate themselves.  Here are ten very effective strategies to help you get up and get moving toward actualizing your enormous, untapped potential.

  • Be willing to leave your comfort zone. The greatest barrier to achieving your potential is your comfort zone. Great things happen when you make friends with your discomfort zone
  • Don’t be afraid to make mistakes. Wisdom helps us avoid making mistakes and comes from making a million of them.
  • Don’t indulge in self-limiting thinking. Think empowering, expansive thoughts.
  • Choose to be happy. Happy people are easily motivated. Happiness is your birthright so don’t settle for anything else.
  • Spend at least one hour a day in self-development. Read good books or listen to inspiring tapes. Driving to and from work provides an excellent opportunity to listen to self-improvement tapes.
  • Train yourself to finish what you start. So many of us become scattered as we try to accomplish a task. Finish one task before you begin another.
  • Live fully in the present moment. When you live in the past or the future you aren’t able to make things happen in the present.
  • Commit yourself to joy. C.S. Lewis once said, “ Joy is the serious business of heaven.”
  • Never quit when you experience a setback or frustration. Success could be just around the corner.
  • Dare to dream big dreams. If there is anything to the law of expectation then we are moving in the direction of our dreams, goals and expectations.
  • The real tragedy in life is not in how much we suffer, but rather in how much we miss, so don’t miss a thing.
  • Charles Dubois once said, “We must be prepared, at any moment, to sacrifice who we are for who we are capable of becoming.

Attitude

Our attitude impacts everything. It sits at the heart of everything we do and will most likely become our reality. However, it’s not always easy to hold a positive attitude. And that’s why we need to pay attention to cultivate our attitude each day, at each moment, and in each thought. This is easier when there’s a deep awareness that a positive attitude is really good for me, it’s good for my wellbeing, my relationship with myself, others and the world around me.

Two Wolves

I was reading the Little House series by Laura Wilder for the, well I can’t really remember. I have been reading these books since the 4th grade after one of my mother’s friends gave me those, back to the story, I was reading the first book and then just read about the wolves which her father was showing her and then remembered this story that will suit to the situation perfectly. Imagine Laura’s father showing her the wolves and saying..

There is a battle between two wolves inside each one of us goes on all the times.

First wolf is the Evil character wolf; it produces germs of anger, envy, sorrow, greed, arrogance, stress, lies and tension in our minds. Whereas, the second one is Good character wolf; it generates the energy for hope, peace, happiness, truth, generosity and ethics in our mind, heart and soul.

Laura asked, so who wins the battle? Father replied, the one which you feed more!

The story has a superb driving force motivating us to do our self audit. The question is that which wolf we feed daily and how much? If we surround ourselves in negative character people, do back biting, leg pulling, learning tricks to deceive people and talk pessimist events or ideas then definitely we are strengthening the Evil Wolf. On the contrary, if we spend our times with nice and positive people, read good books, focus on solutions, and assist people in resolving their problems then we are encouraging the Good Wolf to overcome the Evil one. In the long run, the Wolf represents our character because eventually our character gets molded either in to a Good Wolf or Evil Wolf.

The way to Happiness

Hello everybody, how are you all doing? It’s been sometime since I last posted in the blog. I was as busy as it gets in the last few weeks and I am glad that I have a break from the monotonous routine even though it won’t last long. In this New Year, as a new beginning, I thought of starting a new series of posts themed “The way to be Happy”.

Happiness, for almost everybody, is the ultimate goal of their lives despite the fact that they might be having various types of professions or life styles. Happiness itself differs from person to person, one might be happy from just a wish of a warm Good Morning by a stranger in a gloomy day, another person might not be content even if he has the most expensive gift he always wanted. It takes a lot of strength to be happy and content with what we have in our lives, as having a mind is to think and that thinking might lead to more and more ideals even of one achieved a lifelong goal.

Happiness is one of those rare things in life that multiplies with every time you share it. Don’t forget to share the happiness!

The Mother, the daughter and the map

A Mother was reading a magazine and her cute little daughter every now and then distracted her.
To keep her busy, she tore one page on which was printed the map of the world. She tore it into pieces and asked her to go to her room and put them together to make the map again.

She was sure her daughter would take a lot more time and probably whole of day to get it done.
But the little one came back within minutes with a perfect map.

When she asked how she could do it so quickly, she said,

“Oh Mom, there is a man’s face on the other side of the paper. I made the face perfect to get the map right.” she ran outside to play leaving the mother surprised.

Moral : Perhaps there is always the other side to whatever you experience in this world.

This story indirectly teaches a lesson.That is:

Whenever we come across a challenge or a puzzling situation, Look at the other side Will be surprised to see an easy way to tackle the problem or an acute difficulty.
We are all explorers
