Life is not meant to be complicated. It is straightforward. It’s simply a matter of doing the right things. And when we do so, the right things will happen!
The reward for doing the right things is success, happiness, and fulfillment. But when we do the wrong things, we reap failure, misery, and regret.
Just think of the right things as the things that work, and the wrong things as the things (actions) that don’t work. If what you are doing is bringing you closer to your goals and dreams, you are doing the right things. On the other hand, if success is nowhere in sight, you are unhappy, and you are feeling frustrated, they are signs that you are doing the wrong things.
Now is a good time to take stock of your actions and ask yourself whether you’re doing the right or wrong things.
The first step in overcoming a problem is to admit that we have one. Most of us are imperfect and have a problem in some or the other areas of life. If you’re unhappy, you’re doing something wrong. If that describes you, try to find out what you are doing wrong and correct the situation.
# Willingness to change.
You will hear most of the time people say, “Self- help improvement books & programs don’t work for me.” Please understand, – The help books and programs are not supposed to work, YOU are supposed to work ! Just carry out the exercises you may learn and put them to practice in daily routine.
# Choose the right way, instead of easy way.
The only short cut to success is hard work. Hard work may not come naturally, but we have the capacity to develop self-discipline, which is an essential skill. Self-discipline is nothing less than the freedom to reach our dreams. When what you are doing does not work, try doing things differently. No point think it’s your bad luck or victims of circumstances or fate.
# Take responsibility.
What happens to us is the results of our own actions or inaction. We can blame others or circumstances if we want, but that doesn’t help at all. Don’t give up too early. Temporary setbacks become failures only if we stop in our tracks. But if we make it our policy to refuse to give up until we reach our destination, we’ll never fail.
# Learn to get along.
Some believe they live in a hostile world, so they act in a hostile manner. But those who believe they live in a friendly world trust and support others. As a result, they receive trust and support from everyone they deal with. It doesn’t matter whether your opinion is right or wrong. What matters is whether your opinion works for you or not. Positive thinkers believe we live in a friendly world, so they get along with others and become successful.
# Strong commitment.
A dream without commitment is no more than a wish. But when we are committed, we are willing to do whatever it takes to succeed. We may have to reach deep, down inside to find it, but commitment is part of the inner resources of all. Apply what you learn. A meal provides no nutrients unless we eat it. Similarly, books, articles, and advice provide no help unless we integrate into our lives what we’ve learned. Neglecting to apply what we’ve learned is the same as not learning it.
Your life is a precious gift. You won’t have to worry if you do the right things, for then the right things will happen to you..
Make it a great week ahead !
