Keep your thoughts positive because your thoughts become your words. Keep your words positive because your words become your behavior. Keep your behavior positive because your behavior becomes your habits. Keep your habits positive because your habits become your values. Keep your values positive because your values become your destiny.
– Mahatma Gandhi.
INSTINCTS. How many times you feel “I can do this” or you are overthinking? Overthinking things can create obstacles that weren’t even a problem in the first place. Maybe you’ve spent time and effort preparing for an interview, important play or a big game and you are as ready as can be until it comes time for you to actually perform. And you end up doing subpar because your mind goes into overdrive with all the negative possibilities. No matter how talented a person is, they could still choke when they have to perform and it usually comes from their own mind psyching them out thinking too much instead of acting on instinct.
If whatever you’re doing comes naturally to you, using your heart instead of your head is the way to go. Find some way to distract your mind, calm your thoughts and let your instincts take over.
Just as a farmer plants seeds and expects a period of harvest, whatever you sow- you will also reap. Whatever you do unto people will eventually be done unto you. When you choose to treat people right, you will also discover they often reciprocate & behave more positively towards you too. It may take time as seeds often take time to grow, but your words/actions/thoughts eventually always yield their harvest. They may return to you as love, money or happiness.
You should therefore be kind & courteous to people irrespective of circumstances. Remember your actions or even your reactions will comeback to you somehow. As you sow, so shall you reap.
If you dream about something, then ACT. ACTION must always be your responsibility and REWARD mustn’t be your concern.
We always see this “HISTORY REPEATS ITSELF”, the reason is nobody tried to change it. Nothing changes unless you change it. For you to correct negative choices & bad habits, it’s not enough to merely make up your mind to do it. You have to take action in order for the changes to come to fruition.
If you discover a negative trend in life, then you have to make efforts to turn it around. Even though true change begins from within, it never ends there. Go from resolutions to taking actions. Do something about your decision. This is the only way you can grow & get better. This is the only way to create positive changes. In this entire journey stay calm & be patient. Not a single postive change or nothing of true value is created without a patient mindset.
Everything that you do is somehow connected. The past, present & the future all are connected. Your past & present hold significant sway over your FUTURE. You should realise that “no one step” will suddenly shoot you into the future of your dreams. Every single step you have ever taken and the ones you take right now are equally important. Your future is actually culmination of your previous choices & steps. So all of them count.
Therefore, make an effort to take steps which are consistent with your destination. Only that way you can get there. That’s how you reach/fetch GOALS. (Not my words).
Most people are so random that you can literally term them “dumb” or “stupid” with almost everything. It’s nothing but an unenthusiastic lazy mindset which functions without motive. They are unaware of what to expect from themselves. Fix your motive before you act, not just act but even before you speak. Humans are that kinda crazy who catch the smallest possible negative & present it as a ginormous pile of rubbish. When you notice a problem in yourself, work towards removing it.
You must have heard or seen this before “Actions must match words”, that’s true. Be cautious about it. But even before that’s sorted, never forget to sort your motive because it takes a lot of time to figure out where you are heading with your motive towards what you desire. Every action must be prompted by a motive. (Not my words).
Our minds can shape the way a thing will be because we act according to our expectations.
– Federico Fellini
Happiness is not something readymade, it comes from your own actions.
– Dalai Lama XIV
ACTION may not always be happiness, but there is no happiness without action.
