Beautiful truths.

thoughts-and-charachter
Sometimes it’s just Interesting learning some great truths,  they wow your mind and make you feel different once you learn and apply them.  Here is a list of some beautiful truths .

1. We are beings of power, intelligence and love.  We are the lords of our thoughts.  We hold the key to every situation.  I repeat,  every situation.  With this key,  we can make and do what we will.
2. Every act is a blossom of thought. Joy and suffering are the fruits.  Man has the choice to choose.  All forms of positive thoughts which includes all the virtues bring joy while all forms of negative thoughts and vibration including all vices lead to suffering.

” Thought in the mind hath made us,
What we are by thought was wrought and build,
If man’s mind hath evil thoughts,
Pain comes on him as wheel the ox behind…
If one endure in purity of thought,
Joy follow him as shadow ”

3. Character is the complete sum of all thoughts. By abuse and wrong application of thought,  man descends below the beast.  But by right choice,  man ascends to Godliness and develops Godlike character.

4. Good thoughts are not a result of chance or favor. They are a result of continued effort in the right thinking,  the effect of long cherished association with Godlike thoughts.  Ignoble character,  that’s below the beast is a result of harbouring grovelling thoughts…
4. Man is the master of thought,  the moulder of character and the maker and shaper of condition,  environment and destiny.
5. One becomes the master of himself only when he learns he is a creature of inside condition and not outside.  That he is a creative power and he can command the hidden thoughts of which circumstances grow.  Practice of self control leads to a controlled life.  Change in circumstances is always in exact ratio to change in mental condition.
7. We all attract what we secretly harbour,  what we love and what we fear.

Finally,  I love the law of the farm and would love to remind you this morning.  The law of the farm states,  “You reap exactly what you sow ” Good thoughts bear good fruits and bad thoughts bear bad fruits. A little effort bears little results.  Extraordinary effort bears extraordinary results. Nature will never allow every effort go without an equivalent reward.

Good day.  Cheers 😊

do not quit

I have come to realize that at the base of success, there is one basic stone that if it’s missing, success may not be a reality.

“On the best sunny day, the most powerful magnifying glass will not light paper if you keep moving the glass. But if you focus and hold it, the paper will light up. That is the power of concentration.

A man was traveling and stopped at an intersection. He asked an elderly man, “Where does this road take me?” The elderly person asked, “Where do you want to go?” The man replied, “I don’t know.” The elderly person said, “Then take any road. What difference does it make?”

How true. When we don’t know where we are going, any road will take us there.

Suppose you have all the football eleven players, enthusiastically ready to play the game, all charged up, and then someone took the goal post away. What would happen to the game? There is nothing left. How do you keep score? How do you know you have arrived?

Enthusiasm without direction is like wildfire and leads to frustration. Goals give a sense of direction. Would you sit in a train or a plane without knowing where it was going? The obvious answer is no. Then why do people go through life without having any goals?”

WHAT IS YOUR RATE?

11

To rate someone well, we always have to look at three things.

1. Quality of services.

How efficient are you in your mind on how you do your work? How best are the services you offer? How good is the performance or rather, how well are you versed with the details of what you are doing? These are the questions you should always ask yourself. It is your responsibility to make sure you provide quality services. Best services. Very efficient services. Make sure you are performing highly in whatever you do.

2. Quantity of services.

Always have the habit of increasing the services you offer. Improve on the skills you have each and every time. This also has to do with thinking big. There is a difference between someone who owns only one supermarket and one who is owning one but in the process of expanding the supermarket a thousand fold. Develop the habit of always improving and increasing. Bigger and better services equal better and bigger returns.

3. Spirit of service.

The spirit in which you offer services is a big determining factor on how you will be rated or how successful you will be or your businesses will be. Always have a positive attitude, positive mind, imaginative mind and while rendering your services. Imagine and think of ways you can influence, be better and perform a lot better. The spirit will also control how efficient or how others will associate with you. Remember, with the right emotions, you can do almost anything you dream of. Learn to offer a peaceful and harmonious spirit.

We have privilege to turn away inferior and cheap,
We have a privilege to rise to a high standards,
To be respected by men and beloved by God.

That you may accomplish greater good.

Use and account well your time,
Use and account well your skills,

Serve others

“When bestselling French author Dominique Lapierre visited India to work on a new book, he wanted to travel in style. So he purchased a silver-and-black Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud, and had the luxury car shipped to him in Mumbai. He crisscrossed the Indian subcontinent in the vehicle while researching and writing Freedom at Midnight.

The book’s success earned Lapierre a sizeable royalty check, and he decided to give part of the money to an Indian charity out of gratitude. Not knowing where to make the donation, he decided to visit Mother Teresa in Calcutta, assuming she would know how to put the money to good use. She introduced him to James Stevens, an Englishman caring for children in the city’s slums who suffer from leprosy.

At the time, Stevens was running out of cash. He had nearly exhausted his personal savings in his efforts to educate the leprous children and to cure as many of them as possible. Amazed by Stevens’ compassion, and the hope he had restored to so many kids, Lapierre vowed to provide ongoing financing of his humanitarian work. To this end, the author began giving away 50% of his book royalties. To date, the Resurrection Home, the shelter funded by Lapierre, has cured more than 9,000 children infected with leprosy.

Lapierre began his journey to India with a desire to enjoy the heights of luxury. He left having gained a passion to rescue children from the misery of leprosy. His change of attitude is summed up in the words of an Indian poem now printed on the back of his business cards: “All that is not given is lost.”

Lapierre decided to be a river and not a reservoir. He stopped pooling up his wealth, spending it on himself, and instead donated it to benefit children in need. Moreover, he physically put himself in the middle of suffering. When living prosperously, we tend to distance ourselves from misery. We move to affluent neighborhoods, play at pristine parks, dine at the fine restaurants, and shop at elegant boutiques. If we aren’t careful, we lose touch with the reality of neediness that so many people around us experience on a day-to-day basis. Giving money is great, but serving others in-person reminds us of why generosity is so very important.”

THE PRAYER.

nice

What a heavenly peace fills my mind,
What a sweet joy to see blessings from heaven,
Help me master, to walk in your ways,
Be light unto my path,that I may glorify you.

Help me pant after you with zeal and sincerity,
As the hart panted after the water-brooks,
Strengthen me, teach me and lead me,
Be light unto my path, that I may glorify you.

Success is real when it comes from you,
I must know you to walk, talk, dress and act,
What will it profit to succeed few years and lose heaven?
Be light unto my path, that I may glorify you.

Open us possibilities of heavenly investment,
Make us more precious that fine gold,
Teach us to seek riches that are imperishable,
Be light unto our path, that we may glorify you.

Why You Need Positive People in Your Life

Shawn-Achor
Happiness is a choice. But we continually need to be reminded by people to make that choice.

Shawn Achor

*One big mistake people make is not realizing that happiness is an individual choice. But every choice is influenced by the people in our lives. If you change your life influencers for the better, you can dramatically increase your chances for happiness and success.

In my research, I’ve found that positive social connection is the greatest predictor of long-term happiness. Welcoming a positive new influencer into your world can be one of the most important choices for happiness you make. That person might be a professional life coach or a mentor or simply someone whom you respect and who has the positive outlook you want to emulate.

A positive influencer will have a few outstanding traits that rub off on you over time. This person will practice gratitude. He will seek joy daily and work at becoming his best self. He’ll enjoy being active and feel connected to others.

Think about the negative influences around you. These are people who focus on the bad things in their lives and cause you to do the same. You’ll be left searching for new problems to worry over. Negative influencers don’t smile or laugh easily. They have trouble maintaining relationships and see stress as a threat rather than a challenge to embrace. Steer clear!

We know that happiness is a choice. But we continually need to be reminded by people to make that choice, especially when life gets challenging. Think about the people you know who could be positive influencers and spend more time with someone who will improve your happiness and lead you to greater success
