Each one of us has a different perspective on life, a different way of looking at and interpreting things, all of which decide the way we go about living our life…
Everything we experience in life and how we feel about our experiences is always a result of how we approach life and interpret our experiences. In effect – we go a along way in determining what will happen to us simply through our thoughts about what we think will happen to us.
A little metaphorical story to make us realise everything we do, no matter how small, can make a difference:
There are lots and lots of things out there promising to increase your happiness in one way of other. More often than not it involves spending your money. However, one of the most effective, ‘free’ and proven ways to boost your happiness – it’s just to take stock and practice a little gratitude. And this can be done right now. Most of us have something to be grateful for – we just perhaps take things a little too much for granted, and focus on what’s wrong or what we don’t have rather than what we do have. Take a few seconds out your day to read the 15 quotes below, reflect on them a little, and it will brighten your life 🙂
In daily life we must see that it is not happiness that makes us grateful, but gratefulness that makes us happy.
Many of us look at the world in an indifferent sort of way – taking everything for granted and rarely actually considering anything in life with awe or wonder or amazement – our life’s experience is greatly dimished as a result.
Many people believe that they will be happy once they arrive at some specific goal that they have set for themselves. Whatever your “there” is, and most of us have one, we become convinced that once we arrive “there” we will finally find the peace, happiness and contentment we have always dreamed of.
A short story with an important lesson worth contemplating
The Fisherman and the Businessman
There was once a businessman who was sitting by the beach in a small Brazilian village. As he sat, he saw a Brazilian fisherman rowing a small boat towards the shore having caught quite a few big fish. The businessman was impressed and asked the fisherman, “How long does it take you to catch so many fish?” The fisherman replied, “Oh, just a short while.”
