Have Good Qualities In Your Mind !

When you build a house every brick counts. When you build a character every thought counts. You are what you think. Love, purity, peace, wisdom - the more you think of these qualities, the more you will become them.

Recognize Each One ‘s Virtues !

True respect comes not from what one does but how well it is done. Respect is usually associated with what one does, i.e., it is usually associated with position, status etc which is associated with the job. When there is such an attitude, there is a tendency to look at the people around in a superficial way, missing out on recognising their true worth. We need to recognise the fact that true respect comes from doing well whatever is being done. We need to recognise each one's virtues and qualities revealed through the behaviour. This enables us to have true respect for others. We then no longer look at what one is doing as important, but will be able to appreciate each and every one's contribution.

Have More Positive Thoughts In Your Mind !

To think less is to remain happy. Usually there is a tendency to think more than normal when there is a challenging situation. Although it is considered to be good to think more, we usually miss out on the fact that thinking more means having lots of waste thoughts along with those that are necessary. When we find ourselves thinking a lot we need to ask ourselves if all these thoughts are really necessary. We need to recognize waste thoughts and replace them with something more positive. With this practice we'll find ourselves thinking less and at the same time having powerful thoughts which will keep us cheerful under all circumstances.

Encourage Others To Move Forward !

To fill the ones who are hopeless with hope is the greatest service. To have faith by seeing the positive qualities even in the most negative person is to fill them with hope. Also to fill hope means to encourage others to move forward in the most negative situation. When this is done they are able to use their potentials for a positive purpose and slowly bring about a change for the better. When we are able to see positivity under all circumstances, we are able to have the courage and enthusiasm to make the best out of every situation. This also naturally makes us an inspiration for those around us too and makes us an image of support for those who want to make effort.

Bring Positivity In Your Life !

To be free from guilt means to ensure quick and easy progress. Blaming oneself for all that happens and taking the mind to extreme levels of guilt takes one to a sense of unworthiness. Such a person loses the strength and is unable to look for solutions in difficult situations. Hence there is nothing new that can be thought of, and the situation doesn't get any better. When we continue to blame ourselves, we believe that we deserve neither happiness nor love and that the sorrow that we are experiencing is a deserved punishment. So we lose all enthusiasm to improve the situation and have no awareness of the treasures that we have. So we experience no progress in our life.
