Have The Right Faith In Others !

Faith in others enables them to be powerful. Faith in others is usually mistaken for blind faith - observing helplessly only hoping for the best in our heart. We then consciously don't do anything but just hope for the best. In such a situation we subtly experience fear or tension. But this is not true faith nor is the outcome usually right. Faith in others means to remain alert to what is going on and then to fill the other person with the strength of our faith to such an extent that they feel able to do whatever needs to be done. Our faith will fill them with confidence and they will be able to give their best to the task.

Make Your Intellect Refined !

In order to make your intellect refined, talk to yourself and talk to God with your heart. Don't just make complaints and demands. Allow your intellect to become peaceful. Forget anything that has to do with the body or - bodily - relations. As He is nonphysical, make yourself nonphysical with your thoughts; then have a conversation with Him. He will listen to the things of your heart and give you a response.

Focus On The Potential And Unique Specialties Of Others !

True help is to appreciate the efforts of each one to improve themselves. Not realising that all are making effort to bring improvement in themselves at their own level, we tend to point out people's mistakes only to prove them wrong. It is by proving them wrong that we want to prove ourselves right. This doesn't help others in anyway to bring a change in them. We need to focus more on the potential and unique specialities of those around us, rather than on their faults. This will help us to appreciate the effort that each one is making to bring improvement in himself. Then we find that even the corrections we give are effective, as they are more for the benefit of the other person. This is the real help we can give to others.

Enjoy Whatever Comes Your Way !

When I finish this project, then I will be happy! When this situation is resolved, I will be fine. When I reach my goal, I will finally relax, be peaceful! To surf in the Ocean is to understand where the waves are coming from and which ones to take. Maybe what life is asking of you is different from the responses you were trained to give to it. To be successful in the Ocean needs effort and positioning. Catch the right wave. The objective of the surfer is to enjoy the ride, to have fun. In the same way, do not postpone your happiness; enjoy whatever comes your way.

Success Is Achieved By Team Work !

Success comes to the one who is able to involve others and work as a team. Because of having a feeling that the more the people involved, the more difficult the task becomes, we tend to avoid involving others in any task that we take up. We tend to do everything on our own, making us lose out on useful resources that we can get as others' contribution. As much as possible we need to involve others in such a way that they make a valuable contribution to the task that we have undertaken. We are doubly benefited with this. Firstly, we will gain from the others' resources. We also find that the good wishes of others are there for the task for which they have contributed and we find ourselves succeeding.
