Happiness Challenge

maxresdefault

Yesterday was the “International Day of Happiness” across the world.

From the time I was a kid, I’ve always believed that the best way to find happiness was to make someone else happy. And so I challenged myself to make someone else happy and see how that went. Here are a couple of the things that I did yesterday to spread happiness:

#1 = I paid for an old lady’s shopping as I was leaving the grocery store. I had some bonus in my shopping card and figured that she’d use it more. The look on her face when the cashier told her that her bill was already paid was priceless.

#2 = I sent a short email of appreciation to someone who I hand’t talked to in a while, but who I admired for what they were doing. They wrote me back after a couple of hours saying that they were having a rough day but my note made it a better one for them.

#3 = I spent an hour playing cards with my grandmother in the evening. She was thankful for the time and we both had fun together.

As you can see, I didn’t really do much, but what I did made three people’s days better. And in return, my day was made happier as well.

Random acts of kindness don’t need to take long, be expensive, or require a lot of prep. All it takes is a couple of minutes to make someone’s life happier. Trust me, your life will be happier in return!

Success and Failure Happen in our Minds!

Thought for your Day: It is in the mind where success and failure happen. True, we don’t have much say in all the circumstances, conditions and events around us. Some things are truly out of our control. But what we can control is how we view them and how we respond to them. Our outlook on them determines our reaction towards them. A massive step towards success in any area of your life is realizing that it is not the circumstances that determine where you are and where you go from here, but rather your decisions and your choices–choices fuelled by the right mindsets and attitudes. You can change your life at any moment. All you need to do is change your mind!

Look Positively at the Process

Success takes hard work. Productivity is a tough process. Achieving can taxing on your mind and body. If we focus on the difficulties of obtaining success, we lose the power to pursue it and often fall short of the goal. Rather, let us focus on the joy, the happiness, the fulfilment, and the pleasure that comes through achieving our goals and let that motivation power us forward. Have a wonderful weekend!

Habits are Important

Thought for your day. Habits and rituals are the basis building blocks of success. Give me an average man who can consistently perform at a particular level–for I know that I can count on him–rather than a brilliant man who only performs in patches. Big success requires faithfulness in doing the little things every day. What are your habits? Do they bring you success?

(PS: If you feel you can improve in this area, I provide personal and business coaching to help you build the habits and rituals of success!)

Work Hard for Success

Thought of the Day. As the old saying goes, the only place where “success” comes before “work” is in the dictionary. Success is hard work. But it’s worth it!
