Intelligent Thought For Constant Self-Progress !

Normally we tend to associate success with what we get, rather than how much effort we put in. So sometimes when things don't turn out the way we expect them to, we tend to have negative feelings because of the thought of being unsuccessful. So we tend to stop putting in further efforts for success. When we put in accurate efforts for the success of every task, we naturally try to do the best. Because of our own contribution, others too help us and contribute whatever they can to achieve what we set out to do. So there is success in everything. When we do the right thing, we will be able to experience constant self-progress, even if the result is not what we have expected.

Encourage Specialities Of Others For Their Development !

When we come into interaction with others we are concerned with their negative aspects. We are aware of where they are going wrong and we try to correct them too. But usually the other person doesn't realize his mistake. The more we try to emphasize on negativity, the more difficult it becomes to make him realize. On one hand we find that he is not benefited, and on the other, we are filling ourselves with negativity too. The best business in life is that of seeing specialties and contributing our own specialties for others' growth. When we are aware of others specialties, we are able to encourage them to use them for growth. Also we are free from negativity. Further, using our own specialties enriches others and us too. These specialties are easily available for us at the time of need, for having used them properly.

Loving Others Truly Is An Expression Of Inner Growth !

When there is true love, there is an expression of inner growth - not just for oneself but benefit for others too. When there is true love, there is the ability to express one's own qualities without being negatively influenced by others' negative character traits. To love is to know that what is being given is true. When I have true love for those around me, I am able to win the hearts of others. Since the expression of my love is consistent, others are able to return that love and give me good wishes. I find myself as a source of support for others and they are able to use me as a support for their growth.

Sharing Inner Resources Enriches Our Life !

When we think of sharing, we sometimes wonder if it is really beneficial. Normally the belief is that when we share any thing or resource, we find ourselves a little poorer with that resource. So we do not want to consistently share which is believed will bring benefit only to the other person. When we share inner resources like happiness, peace, love etc. we are enriched. Every time we give, we not only get back from others but also experience that quality ourselves. When we share our physical resources too, it is our own experience which is important than the outcome. That means, I enjoy giving itself rather than expect appreciation (which may or may not come!)

An Intelligent Inspiring Message !

When we think of resources that God has given us, we tend to think that everything should be accepted blindly. Such acceptance sometimes leads us to become passive, or even make us to get caught up in the negativity of the situation. To consider ourselves as a trustee of God is to appreciate what is happening, knowing that God is responsible. It also means that we need to be a valuable instrument and do our bit well. When we make full effort handing over the responsibility to God, we are able to do our best using all the available resources. Yet, we don't experience the burden of the situation.

Always Find The Positive Aspect In Others !

When someone relates something to me about another person's negativity, I tend to listen to it with great interest. I then find that the other person is greatly encouraged to speak about it. But such waste talk is not really useful for anyone and I find that there is no solution for the problem at hand. When someone is talking about the negativity in another person I need to question myself if listening to this is of any use to me, or if I can do anything about the situation. If I cannot do anything I need to remind myself that there is no use listening to such waste talk. Instead I need to make an attempt to look at the positive aspect in the other person so that the other person can see that too.
