The formula for personal happiness

Personal happiness is a feeling, not a circumstance.

Happiness is more than just fun or pleasure. It’s a more durable sense of well-being.

Our personal happiness depends not on what happens to us but on what happens within us.

It’s the way we choose to think about ourselves and our lives.

Gratitude and people are the most important factors which dictate our personal happiness.

Gratitude is all about being grateful for everything we have.

With people, it’s all about rewarding personal relationships.

Spending quality time with people whose company we enjoy is essential for our personal happiness. Equally avoiding those people who would make our lives difficult will increase our quality of life.

So the formula for personal happiness is actually quite simple.

  • Appreciate what you’ve got;
  • Don’t fret over things you haven’t got;
  • And enjoy the time you spend with your family and friends.

It takes discipline and practice to think positively. However, the ability to maintain a positive mental attitude is essential to our personal happiness.

So go on; start today. Be happy. Life’s far too short for a negative state of mind.

To find a job you’ll love start with these questions

Most people, if they’re lucky enough to have a job, are in jobs for which they have little or no passion.

They just do whatever they have to do to ensure they have a regular income. It’s a living but it’s hardly a life, wouldn’t you agree?

If you’d like to find a job you’ll love doing then start by asking yourself some searching questions like these:-

Questions to ask yourself:

  1. What activity gives you a genuine buzz?
  2. What activity would you regard as more fun than work?
  3. Do you have a genuine talent for some particular activity?
  4. What activity makes your eyes sparkle with enthusiasm?
  5. What would you do as a hobby if you couldn’t make a living at it?
  6. In which activity would you not have to be asked twice to participate?
  7. In what activity would you be so absorbed that you’d completely lose track of time?
  8. For what activity would you willingly rise early, knowing that this was on your day’s agenda? 

Why the answers are important:

The answers to these questions will help you to identify the activity for which you have passion and enthusiasm.

If you can identify a job that consists primarily of activities consistent with the answers to these questions, then the chances are that you’ll have found the job you’ll love to do.

And as the saying goes, find a job you love and you’ll never work a day in your life.

Now, getting that job won’t be that easy, of course.

However, knowing what you really want is the first step on the road to success.

If you have a real talent for your work then you’re likely to enjoy what you do. If you enjoy what you do, then you’re likely to do it well. Do it well and people will notice. And once people begin to notice you for the work you do then your career will start going places, potentially to places beyond your wildest dreams.

Finding a job for which you have a passion really can lead you to success.

So go on, start reflecting on these questions and then ask yourself, is what I’m doing now consistent with the answers? A negative conclusion would imply that it’s time to make some changes.

The way to discover your true potential

What’s the best way to discover your true potential? That’s an interesting question.

Have you ever considered what your true potential might be dear reader?

Have you ever thought you might have some hidden depths about which even you cannot be sure?

Certainly, many people underestimate their ability or simply allow negative thinking to stop them from exploring all they can be.

It’s easy for us to think that we don’t have much to offer in terms of ability.

We all worry about being ‘found out‘ at times. We all experience self-doubt. That’s natural but we must keep any self-doubt under control.

Negative thinking is like the weeds in your garden. If you’re not careful the weeds take over and your garden suffers. Well, your mind is just like a garden.

And like a garden, you must tend it well.

Nourish your mind with learning. Be inspired by books, films, songs, and inspirational videos and audio programs by the great thinkers of our time. Encourage healthy thoughts and an even healthier outlook.

Let me remind you, dear reader, that you do have enormous potential.

Human beings have unlimited capacity to develop as many skills as necessary.

Unfortunately, far too many people go through life with their potential untapped. And that’s sad, wouldn’t you agree?

The world needs all the skills and ideas it can get.  You have the capacity for ideas in abundance. The world needs your full potential.

Do you need a little help to discover your full potential? If so, don’t worry. You’re not alone. There are plenty of people just like you but help is at hand.

Discover your true potential:

The late, great Jim Rohn was one of the great philosophical thinkers of our time. Certainly when it comes to personal development. I’ve read all his books, watched his videos and listened to his audio programs. And I still do frequently. I find his work truly inspirational.

In the following video, Jim Rohn offers some words of wisdom on how to go about discovering your true potential in life.

This video is truly inspiring and worth a few minutes of your time. Anything by Jim Rohn is well worth your time, in my opinion.

I think Jim Rohn was one of the best motivational speakers I’ve ever heard. He has a homespun, folksy philosophy but please don’t be fooled. His messages are simple but powerful. So listen and learn.

Jim Rohn’s simple messages resonate with people as much today as they did when he made his speeches originally.

If you only have time to listen to one motivational speaker then Jim Rohn is undoubtedly the one to whom I always turn and I recommend you do too.

Recommendations for your library:

As I said earlier, Jim Rohn is one of the best motivational speakers I’ve ever heard and he’s been a big influence on me, that’s for sure.

He’s produced many books, videos and audio programs over the years and they will all add value to your library.

Two I can strongly recommend you add to your personal reference library are:-

  1. Seven Strategies for Wealth & Happiness by Jim Rohn
  2. The Art of Exceptional Living by Jim Rohn

I purchased both of these a couple of years ago and I still use them constantly as sources of inspiration and motivation.

Purchasing these items represents money well spent for me, and I’ve found them enormously useful. I strongly recommend them to you.

Even if you don’t buy them, they’re certainly worth considering. Go on check them out right now whilst it’s fresh in your mind. CHECK THEM OUT HERE

The real cost of television? The answer will surprise you

The real cost of television

Have you ever considered what the real cost of television is and the effect it has on your life?

When you’ve worked hard all day, I’m sure you find it so easy when you arrive home in the evening, to have a bite to eat and then relax in front of the television. You just passively watch whatever’s on offer because it’s your time now, right?

If you’ve worked hard all day, you deserve a rest, surely?

Anyway, you’ve got a nice television, and it cost you a lot of money, right?

So, of course, you want to make the most of it, don’t you?

If you’ve spent all that money, why would you want to waste such a fine piece of technology by not using it? Surely that’s a reasonable argument?

Opportunity cost:

Well, it’s an argument, of course, but have you ever given serious thought to the real cost of that television to you?

How much do you think it actually costs?

Now, I’m not referring to the price tag in the store when you purchased your television, though even that’s not insignificant.

I’m referring to the opportunity cost of the time wasted passively watching television.

Never forget, time is money.

And time wasted watching television could have been used doing something that would have been far more profitable for you, at least in the long term.

Deep down, I suspect, in your heart, you know that dear reader, don’t you? Nevertheless, knowing and acting on the knowledge you possess are two different things.

The importance of time:

How often do you hear people say things like, I’d love to earn more money; I’d love to have a better job; I’d love to learn another language; I’d love to learn to play the piano; and so on? Then you’ll hear them say if only I had the time.

Do you recognise yourself anywhere there, dear reader?

The simple fact is that when it comes to time, we all have exactly the same amount, 168 hours each week. It all comes down to how you choose to use and prioritize your time.

Time is a resource, like any other:

Successful people recognise that time is their most precious resource and they use it wisely.

People who succeed have a genuine sense of purpose and they’re very focused on their goals. They know what they want and they have a plan as to how they’ll get it.

Do you have a genuine sense of purpose, dear reader?

Have you got a clear idea in terms of where you’re going?

Do you know what it is you want out of life?

Life can be better:

Perhaps life is something that’s just happening to you and you’re just going with the flow?

That’s an acceptable strategy if you’re willing to accept whatever life throws at you.

However, you must ask yourself: Are you really happy with your life and the share of life’s pie you’ve been given so far, or do you want more?

Well, let me tell you this, dear reader. For things to improve, you must first learn to use your time wisely.

Remember: Time is more important than money because you can always get more money, but you can’t get more time.

Secondly, you need a clear sense of direction and your own plan for how you’ll get to where you want to go. Without direction and a plan, you’ll be destined to be used as part of someone else’s plan.

However, that’ll only be for as long as you can serve some useful purpose for them.

Once you no longer serve any purpose for them you’ll cease to be part of their plan. And then you’ll be scratching around looking for another way to earn a living.

The world is an unforgiving place, that’s for sure.

Be a person of value:

Work is just doing stuff for other people in exchange for money.

However, we don’t just get paid for the hour. Our pay is dictated by the value we put into that hour.

The more value we can add the more we’ll earn.

And to add more value we must be increasing our knowledge and skills constantly.

We reap what we sow.

If we fail to reap, we cannot sow.

And how can you reap if you spend your life passively watching television? Time wasted cannot be recovered.

You’ll get out what you put it:

In my experience, we get out of life exactly what we put in. The more we put in the more we’ll get out.

The obvious question is, how can you get more out of life?

If you’re happy to go through life passively watching television but struggling to make a decent living then that’s fine, if that’s what you want. Just keep doing what you’re doing. Waste as much of your time as you like.

However, if you want more than that then it’s time to start designing the life you want and avoiding time-wasters like television.

It’s time to decide where you’re going; and what you want out of life. It’s time to develop your plan for success. And above all, it’s time to stop wasting your time.

You can be a winner. Anybody can.

However, it does require some effort on your part and a clear sense of direction though. That’s a given.

A great source of inspiration:

And if you’re going to be a winner, in addition to using your time wisely, you’ll also need a constant source of inspiration to keep you motivated.

One of my greatest sources of inspiration is the late, great, business philosopher Jim Rohn.

You’ll find plenty of videos featuring Jim Rohn on YouTube.

However, you might also consider buying one of Jim Rohn’s books or even an audio recording to listen to in your car or on your smartphone or iPad.

One Jim Rohn book (also available as an audio recording) that I can highly recommend is The Art of Exceptional Living.

How to ensure you’re a satisfied customer

Have you ever been in a situation where someone is trying to sell you something and seemingly they can’t do enough for you? They promise so much and they seem so keen to ensure that you enjoy a ‘great customer experience‘.

Then you buy; you part with your money; and suddenly everything changes.

They’d love to help you but that wasn’t included in the sale price, despite you having been given the impression that it was.

This is particularly true with a service, in my experience.

If you have a tradesman or woman doing work for you, for as long as they haven’t been paid, they’ll do just about anything and everything you ask.

Once they’ve been paid, “they’d love to help you but they’re far too busy”.

The moral of the story is that paying for a service before you’ve actually received it is always a mistake.

You won’t be well-served if they’ve already got your money, undoubtedly that’s a fact I’m afraid.

So my message to you is clear dear reader. You pay as little as possible upfront and retain as much as possible until the work has been finished to your complete satisfaction.

Do that and you’ll always be sure to get a job well done. Part with your money first and you’ll be a hostage to fortune.

40 Quotes by Eckhart Tolle to inspire you

As I read his book The Power of Now recently, I thought it would be interesting to explore some quotes by Eckhart Tolle.

Eckhart Tolle, or Ulrich Leonard Tölle as he was born, is a German-born spiritual teacher and self-help author of books such as The Power of Now: A Guide to Spiritual Enlightenment.

After being recommended by Oprah Winfrey, The Power of Now reached The New York Times Best Seller list in 2000. Its success meant that it was soon followed by A New Earth: Awakening to Your Life’s Purpose.

It’s always interesting to listen to successful people, so here are 40 quotes by Eckhart Tolle that I hope you will find inspiring.

Enjoy them all and please feel free to share them.

Quotes by Eckhart Tolle (1-15):

  1. The only thing you ever have is now.
  2. You’re not a problem that needs solving.
  3. Life’s an adventure. It’s not a package tour.
  4. You are the universe, you aren’t in the universe.
  5. Power over others is weakness disguised as strength.
  6. If you’re not living this moment, you’re not really living.
  7. Being at ease with not knowing is crucial for answers to come to you.
  8. The more you live in the present moment, the more the fear of death disappears.
  9. To realize that you are not your thoughts is when you begin to awaken spiritually.
  10. Many people identify their sense of self with the problems they have or think they have.
  11. It is through gratitude for the present moment that the spiritual dimension of life opens up.
  12. If small things have the power to disturb you, then who you think you are is exactly that: small.
  13. If there are people you haven’t forgiven, you’re not going to really awaken. You have to let go.
  14. When the dog looks at you, the dog is not thinking about what kind of a person you are. The dog is not judging you.
  15. The ‘soul’ is one of the words you can use to talk about your innermost being, the essence of who you are.

Quotes by Eckhart Tolle (16-25):

  1. Realize deeply that the present moment is all you ever have. Make the Now the primary focus of your life.
  2. If you live only in one culture for the first 20 years of your life, you become conditioned without knowing it.
  3. Thought can be so seductive and hypnotic that it absorbs your attention totally, so you become your thoughts.
  4. People don’t realize that now is all there ever is; there is no past or future except as a memory or anticipation in your mind.
  5. Discontent, blaming, complaining, and self-pity cannot serve as a foundation for a good future, no matter how much effort you make.
  6. The power for creating a better future is contained in the present moment: You create a good future by creating a good present.
  7. People look to time in expectation that it will eventually make them happy, but you cannot find true happiness by looking toward the future.
  8. If the structures of the human mind remain unchanged, we will always end up re-creating the same world, the same evils, the same dysfunction.
  9. Many people in this world are still so identified with every thought that arises in their heads. There is not the slightest space of awareness there.
  10. Acceptance looks like a passive state, but in reality, it brings something entirely new into this world. That peace, a subtle energy vibration, is consciousness.

Quotes by Eckhart Tolle (26-30):

  1. Don’t wait to be successful at some future point. Have a successful relationship with the present moment and be fully present in whatever you are doing. That is success.
  2. Dogmas are collective conceptual prisons. And the strange thing is that people love their prison cells because they give them a sense of security and a false sense of ‘I know.’ Nothing has inflicted more suffering on humanity than its dogmas.
  3. The mind is a superb instrument if used rightly. Used wrongly, however, it becomes very destructive. To put it more accurately, you usually don’t use it at all. It uses you.
  4. Thinking is a wonderful tool if it’s applied. Thinking, however, cannot become the master. Thinking is a very bad master. If you’re dominated by thinking then your life becomes very restricted.
  5. Most humans are never fully present in the now because unconsciously they believe that the next moment must be more important than this one. But then you miss your whole life, which is never not now.

Quotes by Eckhart Tolle (31-35):

  1. Your entire life only happens in this moment. The present moment is life itself. Yet, people live as if the opposite were true and treat the present moment as a stepping stone to the next moment – a means to an end.
  2. People tend to dwell more on negative things than on good things. So the mind then becomes obsessed with negative things, with judgments, guilt and anxiety produced by thoughts about the future and so on.
  3. There is a fine balance between honouring the past and losing yourself in it. For example, you can acknowledge and learn from mistakes you made, and then move on and refocus on the now. It is called forgiving yourself.
  4. In the West, as well as some other parts of the world, the personal sense of ego tends to predominate, whereas in other areas, there is a more collective sense of ego. This collective ego emphasizes the ‘we’ rather than the ‘I.’
  5. Thoughts are fine when you don’t confuse them with who you are, and then thoughts are not a problem. Thinking is a wonderful tool to create things in this world. It only becomes problematic and a source of suffering when you confuse thinking with who you are.

Quotes by Eckhart Tolle (36-40):

  1. So many people have this idea: I want to achieve something great or be somebody great. And they neglect the step that leads to greatness. They don’t honour this step at this moment because they have this idea of some future moment where they are going to be great.
  2. To complain is always non-acceptance of what is. It invariably carries an unconscious negative charge. When you complain, you make yourself into a victim. When you speak out, you are in your power. So change the situation by taking action or by speaking out if necessary or possible; leave the situation or accept it. All else is madness.
  3. Any action is often better than no action, especially if you have been stuck in an unhappy situation for a long time. If it is a mistake, at least you learn something, in which case it’s no longer a mistake. If you remain stuck, you learn nothing.
  4. In the egoic state, your sense of self, your identity, is derived from your thinking mind – in other words, what your mind tells you about yourself: the storyline of you, the memories, the expectations, all the thoughts that go through your head continuously and the emotions that reflect those thoughts. All those things make up your sense of self.
  5. Wherever you are, be there totally. If you find your ‘here and now’ intolerable and it makes you unhappy, you have three options: remove yourself from the situation; change it; or accept it totally. If you want to take responsibility for your life, you must choose one of those three options, and you must choose now. Then accept the consequences.

7 inspirational quotes about parenting

Today, let’s explore some inspirational quotes about parenting.

Can there possibly be any activity in life that is more important than parenting? I don’t think so.

Yet it is often undervalued in the modern age, or so it seems. Children are the future, so surely they should be our priority?

Far too many people seem to regard parenting as an inconvenience, to fit in around careers, lifestyles, and a burning desire for personal fulfilment.

It’s increasingly common to see young children accompanying adults on crowded commuter trains far too early in the morning, as parents rush to deposit them at a nursery or with a childminder before the working day begins.

These little people will be the next generation. They’re the people who will carry the baton forward to build a better tomorrow, so how they’re brought up matters greatly, particularly in those all-important preschool years, which are critical to their development.

Make your children your priority:

Is it such a good idea to leave them with someone who couldn’t possibly have their best interests at heart in the way that every parent should? You can decide for yourself, dear reader, but I must say, I doubt it.

I think that children, once we have them, should always be our priority over everything else.

Their best interests should always take precedence, surely? That’s easier said than done I know and inevitably there must be some balance and compromise, of course.

However there’s no more important job than being a parent and there’s no greater satisfaction than seeing that little bundle of joy turn into a decent, civilized and well-adjusted adult.

I have had many fine experiences in my life but being a parent has been the best of them all.

It hasn’t been easy, and I’ve made plenty of mistakes along the way. However, the rewards have been well worth any sacrifices I’ve had to make.

Our children are our legacy:

Let us not forget that our children are the real legacy we give to the world. They’re the gift that will keep on giving if only in terms of their contributions to society throughout their lifetime.

Here are seven inspirational quotes about parenting to help you reflect on the importance of being a parent.

Quotes about parenting:

  1. When you hold your baby in your arms the first time and you think of all the things you can say and do to influence him [or her], it’s a tremendous responsibility. What you do with him [or her] can influence not only him [or her] but everyone he [or she] meets and not for a day or a month or a year but for time and eternity. ~Rose Kennedy
  2. To be a good father and mother requires that the parents defer many of their own needs and desires in favour of the needs of their children. As a consequence of this sacrifice, conscientious parents develop a nobility of character and learn to put into practice the selfless truths taught by the Savior himself. ~James E. Faust
  3. Every word, facial expression, gesture, or action on the part of a parent gives the child some message about self-worth. It is sad that so many parents don’t realize what messages they are sending. ~Virginia Satir
  4. There are times as a parent when you realize that your job is not to be the parent you always imagined you’d be, the parent you always wished you had. Your job is to be the parent your child needs, given the particulars of his or her own life and nature. ~Ayelet Waldman
  5. At the end of the day, the most overwhelming key to a child’s success is the positive involvement of parents. ~Jane D. Hull
  6. Don’t worry that children never listen to you; worry that they are always watching you. ~Robert Fulghum
  7. It is easier to build strong children than to repair broken men [or women]. ~Frederick Douglass
