Recently I read an article about tough facts we can learn to make ourselves better and happier. We all want to improve our lives but do we really know how, or what’s even wrong with us. These are some of the points from the article, just thought I’d share. Enjoy...
1.Everything is as it should be. The most tragic and stressful situations eventually teach you important lessons that you never could have imagined. Oftentimes when things are falling apart they are actually falling into place.
2.Not until you are lost in the world can you begin to find your true self. Realizing you are lost is the first step to living the life you want. The second step is living the life you don’t want. Big changes are scary, but something scarier than that, regret. Vision without action is daydream and action without vision is a nightmare.
3.It’s usually the deepest pain which empowers you to grow to you full potential. Without pain, there would be no change. But pain, like everything else in life is meant to be learned from, and then released.
4.You have to take care of yourself first. Before befriending others, you have to be your own friend. Before correcting others, you have to be able to correct yourself. Its not called selfishness, its called personal development.
5.One of the greatest freedoms is truly not caring what everyone else thinks of you. As long as you are worried about what others think of you, they own you. Only when you require no approval from others can you be yourself.
6.The only thing you can actually control is how to react to things out of your control. The more you can adapt to the situations in life, the more powerful your highs will be, and the more quickly you’ll be able to bounce back from the lows in your life.
7.If you concentrate on what you don’t have, you will never have enough. If you are thankful for what you do have, you will end up having even more. Happiness resides not in possessions, and not in gold; happiness dwells in the soul. Abundance is not about how much you have, its how you feel about what you have.
8.Yes you have failed in the past. But don’t judge yourself by your past, you don’t live there anymore. Just because your not where you want to be today doesn’t mean you wont be there someday.
