In today’s busy world we rarely have time to focus on what can truly bring us greatermeaning to our lives. We most often get caught up living our lives on automatic pilotand end up working extremely hard on just existing rather than consciously living. Wespend more time working on external things instead of our own internal well being.
Tip # 1 : HappinessThe secret to happiness is to accept everything in your life completely and to let go of thebaggage. It only seems difficult, but its not. Happiness is a choice we make regardless ofthe imperfections in our lives. Happiness cannot be ours until we wake up to the truth thatwe are perfect beings living in a world that presents imperfections.
You are not your problems...problems are a fact of life,we all face themWake up...change your thoughts...change your life...the only way to live your life isto accept that troubles are a part of it...only then can you let go and move on whenthey arise. I have never met a happy person that claimed to have zero problems.
Tip # 2 : AcceptanceI don’t like to hear people use the phrases “this too will pass” or “time is a great healer.” Ihonestly believe that if we’re waiting for better times to come in the future or are waiting forsorrow to pass, then quite simply we are not doing anything to help ourselves move on.
The only way to conquer sorrow orhard times is to accept they are here, to accept that we are hurting and once we completely accept it, only then can we let go and move on.
Tip # 3 : Limitless MindI spend most of my waking moments, studying, analyzing, contemplating andquestioning everything that I experience through my limited senses. I don’t rely onintellectual knowledge for the answers to reality. Reality is not what we think it is.
Reality is what happens when we wake up to the fact that there is no truth, there is only perception, and our reality is a complete and utter fabricated lie if we don’t accept that our limitations are created in our mind.
Tip # 4 : Reaction ControlWe all have problems and often we are tested by circumstances and situations outside of our control,but when this happens, try to remember that even though you may not be in control of what’s goingon outside of you all the time, you most definitely can control your reaction to whatever situation youare faced with…the power will always be in your control whether you realize it or not.
We have the power because our inner world affects the influence we allowthe outer world to have on us. So next time you hear somebody mention that you have great personal power, they are 100% correct, because you are always in control of your reality...always.
Tip # 5 : PerspectiveWhen you always expect your life to unfold in accordance to what is best for you at the time,then you will ultimately accept that every obstacle you face is a chance to grow and learn.Sometimes even the seemingly worst circumstances can turn out to be a blessing indisguise...life is a matter of perception - perception is a matter of mind.
Tip # 6 : Doubtful MindWe judge ourselves, doubt ourselves, criticize ourselves and pretty much tell ourselves whywe aren’t good enough to go out and accomplish what we truly want in life. We wouldn’tallow anybody else to talk to us in that way so why do we allow our doubtful mind to.
Monitor your self-talk and take the necessary steps to weedout this self-defeating behavior.You are NOT your mind, you are the controller of your mind.
Tip # 7 : Journey WellTry not to put too much of your focus on arriving at your destination. We know life is aboutthe journey and not the arrival. We don’t need to arrive if we accept that we are alreadyhere. Be happy and content where you are today and don’t make the mistake of puttingoff being happy because you are waiting for the right moment to shine.
Travel well today and consciously make the effort toenjoy the journey.It is better to travel well than it is to arrive. Not everyone woke up this morning and not everyonewill go to bed tonight. Life has no guarantees, every minute you are living is a blessing that has tobe experienced in the moment…in the now…it’s not always easy, but it’s always an option…a choice…your choice.
Tip # 8 : DetachmentThere is good and bad in everything we perceive. There is always two sides to the coin andeach side is presented to us at different times. One person will perceive a situation as badwhere another will perceive it as good. The situation itself is neutral but our beliefs, judgmentsand prejudices are the defining characteristics for the outcomes. Ask yourself if it is really worth it to continue seeing these problems in the same way. Is it time to shift from the side of the coin you so often focus on to the other side.
When your perspective changes then the situation will ultimately change in yourmind’s eye, and we know that our mind creates reality. It is just your perceptions you have to overcome and not the external task we face. Retrain your mind to see your habitual reactions to troubles in your life from a new viewpoint.
Tip # 9 : Don’t Exist….Live…It is very important for us to break free from the control of external things. We cannot fall victim tooutside circumstances. It benefits our lives in no way when we willingly give up our own personalpower to things outside of ourselves that we have little or no control over. We all have personalpowerful, just make sure you don’t give up yours by not accepting you have power to begin with. Nobody on this entire planet has more rights to live their lives on their own terms than you do.
Accept the world for what it IS and not for what youwant it to be.You control the world by taking control of yourself…that’s how it’s done. Being who YOU are is allyou have to be. It is a rare thing for people to “live”, simply because we are influenced more bythe external than the internal. To be a victim to outside circumstances is to EXIST, but to beinfluenced by the internal is to LIVE . You give yourself the LOVE and RESPECT that you deserve.
Tip # 10 : Own your Mind Business…Remember...YOU and not the events that happen today will determine how good or bad yourday will be. Make it your goal to not let anyone or anything affect your day in a negative way…….your mind is the government of the 50 trillion cells in your body and your thoughts willdetermine whether these cells live in a healthy community or a community of unease. Remember…You are NOT your mind, YOU are the controller of your mind.
