This is  a nice post from lifehack. I thought it is worth noting here, as a reminder to all of us.

The power of a sentence is tremendous. A single destructive sentence can ruin somebody’s life, make your day, or change your mood. Fortunately, there are some sentences that can give us power to go on. We have sorted out 10 powerful sentences that can change your life for the better.

#1 “People aren’t against you; they are for themselves.”

#2 “Climb mountains not so the world can see you, but so you can see the world.”

#3 “You learn more from failure than from success; don’t let it stop you. Failure builds character.”

#4 “The most dangerous risk of all – The risk of spending your life not doing what you want on the bet you can buy yourself the freedom to do it later”

#5 “Go where you’re celebrated, not where you’re tolerated.”

#6 “The person that you will spend the most time with in your life is yourself, so you better try to make yourself as interesting as possible.”

#7 “If you accept your limitations you go beyond them.”

#8 “People often say that motivation doesn’t last. Well, neither does bathing.. that’s why we recommend it daily.”

#9 “Everyone you meet is afraid of something, loves something, and has lost something”

#10 “Comfort is the enemy of achievement.”

Stop Obsessing about Looks and Wasting time in the process

I just heard my neighbor saying that she joined gym to improve on her looks. I was dumbfounded. If she joins gym for health reasons, very well, good for her. But for improving her looks? I think she looks great, what does she want to change now?

Why are people so obsessed to change the way they look these days? Yes, it should be our goal to lead a healthy and beautiful life. But not upping the meaning of beautiful everyday and feeling miserable about it. Our life is meant to be beautiful and happy. Let us experience the happiness every moment of everyday in our life. Let us keep our life simple. How much time are we wasting in our life feeling bad about our looks or what we need to change.

Tips:

  • Identify the areas of your life/beauty that you want to improve(if it is really required)
  • Identify the routines we need to do on an everyday basis to reach these beauty goals.
  • Include these routines in your everyday schedule and follow them
  • Forget about it. If you are doing all that is required, why should you bother thinking about it again.
  • Be Happy which is the natural state of Being.

This way, you are more  likely to follow the routines, and see good results. Good Luck!

Say welcome to Simplicity!

Too Busy to think about Life

It is easy to fall in the trap of being busy all the time. After all, the more busy the people are, the more successful they are. Aren’t they? This is just a mindset our society has created in us from the time we were learning to walk or talk.

Don’t get fooled by it. There are many reasons why people keep busy all the time:

  • To show the world how important they are
  • To prove to themselves that they are doing important work
  • To feel good about themselves that their parents/relatives think they are important
  • To avoid changing their life
  • To avoid thinking about their childhood dreams which they think are not realistic
  • To avoid realizing the fact that the tasks they do everyday are not really getting them what they want.
  • To avoid realizing the fact that WE CAN REALLY CHANGE OUR LIVES THE WAY WE WANT IT

Does it matter? Really? if people think we are important or not? Except in the case where it is your client in business or manager at work. Even in this case, they will think you are important if you consistently produce results on time, but not by being busy all the time.

Don’t you see the longer you stay in this mode, the more your mind is used to working on trivial issues than learning to go deeper in thoughts. Because, to realize our true potential and to take action towards changing it requires deep thinking from our mind. The longer you keep your mind in this state, the more it gets used to it. And the more difficulty you will have in getting it to change.

So, If you think you are busy, just stop and think about it. Consciously think and prioritize what you do and have to do.

Tips:

  1. Allocate ‘me time’ for yourself everyday. For BUSY people, I suggest take 15 mins everyday and think. Just think or write down if you are comfortable. About what you want in life, and what you doing is really what you want.
  2. Write down all the tasks that you do everyday and prioritize tasks. Keep re-prioritizing till you get the schedule you want.
  3. Find out what your dream or vision is. And see what you are doing in your everyday life to reach that dream.
  4. Slowly and steadily change the small tasks of your life to reflect that which you want in life. And to include the path to reach your dream.
  5. Review your changes on a regular basis.
  6. Take a day off in a month or once in three months, and do nothing. Just allow yourself to relax and be with yourself and with the universe.

If you are not able to think of or remember your dream, no problem. This is expected. Allow yourself to unwind in the above said way or whichever way you are comfortable, slowly and eventually you will reach that place in your heart, where you have buried your dream.

There you go….
