Keep Your Mind Free to Get Quick Solutions in Life

To finish waste questions is to find a solution. When a difficult situation comes up there are waste questions in the mind either about the past or about the future. Questions like 'why did it happen like this?' or 'What will happen now?' are very common. But to keep the mind busy with waste questions is to block it from using its capability of finding solutions. On the other hand, to finish waste questions, means to keep the mind free for finding solutions. When we keep our mind free from waste questions, we are able to be alert and find the right answer to every problem. We have the confidence and we know that every problem has a solution. When we keep our mind in the present by freeing ourselves of waste questions, we are able to quickly and easily find the solution and move towards success even in the most challenging situations.

Learn to Take Responsibility in Life

The one who is responsible is the one who constantly has good wishes. To be responsible means to recognize the importance of one's own role. That means there is the understanding that others' transformation is dependent on one's own transformation. When there is the recognition of one's responsibility, there is naturally alertness. This alertness brings good wishes for even the ones who are not being positive. When we are able to maintain good feelings for all those we come into contact with, we find our relations gradually improving. We also find that we are ready to take up the challenge of changing ourselves before we can think of changing others. Due to this, others continue to take inspiration from us and bring about a change in themselves too.

With the Power of Cooperation, Difficult Task Becomes Easy

To take up responsibility is to inspire cooperation from others. When there is the initiative to take up responsibility, there is accuracy in words and actions too. There is the use of one's own specialties in the task that is to be done and so others too keep getting inspiration to use their specialties. So the task is filled with honest effort that is the contribution of each and everyone. When we take up responsibility for everything that comes up in our life, we find that others too take responsibility to contribute their share to the task. We find others cooperating with us and the most difficult task becomes easy. The power of cooperation works wonders in the most difficult task.

Consider Yourself Fortunate at Every Step

The first step of courage is to consider oneself fortunate at every step. The one who is courageous never has a doubt of being fortunate. Even if there are difficult situations and challenges, the faith of being fortunate never fades away. This faith enables such a person to recognize and use the available resources in a worthwhile way. Even during difficult situations, there is never a need to stop as faith gives courage to move on. When we consider ourselves to be fortunate we never experience fear in spite of difficult situations. We are always happy with whatever is happening. Along with it we also have the enthusiasm to make effort to better the situation. We never worry but are able to enjoy each and every moment and make the best use of it.

Have Balance of Flexibility and Discipline in Life

The one who has the balance of flexibility and discipline is the one who is constantly successful. It is of course necessary to be flexible but if we are so flexible that others take advantage of us it is not right. So we need to have a balance of flexibility and discipline i.e., to be flexible within the rules and code of conduct. It is necessary to take care that the flexible nature within us doesn't waste our time or other resources. We have to be able to say no if the situation demands. But whatever we say has to be told with love, which comes when our nature is that of flexibility.
