Make Positive Changes To Overcome Your Weakness !

The normal reaction to negative situations (situations that hold a threat for me) is to react with negativity (with my weakness). But the problem with such a reaction is that each time I use my weakness it only gets further strengthened, and becomes a part of my nature. I need to remind myself that only when I free myself from my weaknesses can I bring benefit to myself or to others. This thought will enable me to constantly check myself and put in constant effort to change myself too in overcoming my weaknesses.

Contentment Within Helps You To Serve Others Better !

Sometimes we try to fill the gap in our lives, by doing something good for others or by serving others. When we want to do something good for others, we look for the contentment that service brings, but this too may not be the solution. The pre-qualification for serving others, i.e., to give others, is to have contentment within. Only when we have this specialty can we serve selflessly with whatever resources we have. We are able to use all resources well for others' benefit and we are free from expectations too.

Honesty Helps You To Deal With The Situation !

We normally understand honesty to be free from lying or free from falsehood. So although we try to be honest at that level we are not able to sustain that, as we face challenges from the environment. True honesty is more connected with our innate nature, than just being free from lies. When we are honest we are able to see what we need to do according to the situation. We are able to bring about a change in such a way that we never repeat the mistake that we have committed.

Create Harmony With A Calm State Of Mind !

When we have to do something big and we are not able to do it on our own, we expect help from others. But not always do we get that help. This further gets us into a state of negativity and we are not able to give our best. This also in turn affects our relationships. We need to have a long time of practice of doing good things, which get us blessings and good wishes from others. It is these good wishes which help us at the time of need. Also due to this, even if things go wrong, we are able to maintain a calm state of mind and good relationships, thus creating harmony and greater output.
