Put Love In Everything You Do & See The Change !

You always have a choice but you forget that you have it. Do you remember the energy and enthusiasm you had on the first day of your first job? You consciously chose to do the work you had gladly accepted to do. But then you gradually fell asleep to the choice you made, and the day became "I have to" go to work, instead of "I want to" go to work. You forgot to see all the opportunities which come with work - opportunities like learning, nourishing and being nourished by others, developing new relationships, expanding your personal capacity. Instead you decided it was just something that you had to do to 'get the money'. This is why most people are sleep-walking through their lives, and they don't know it. 

The solution, choose your work every day, put the energy of love into your relationships -every day, even if you don't particularly like your job or the people around you. And you'll be amazed at how your life transforms. When you choose to put love into what you do, the universe will move heaven and hell to let you do what you love.

Clear the Mind of Negativity & Fill it with Positivity !

Make a list of the things that worry you most and decide if they are in your circle of influence or worry. Think about what you can really do to have an influence on each of them in an effective way. By determining which of these two circles is the centre around which most of your time and energy revolves, you can discover a great deal about your level of positivity. 

Positive people focus on the things they can do something about. If necessary, they change their attitude. They are aware that perhaps they cannot change the circumstances but they can improve their inner attitude. This is what positive focusing is all about: being creative, thinking differently, being open to listening, being more understanding, more communicative and showing more solidarity. 

Reactive people focus on the problems of the circle and on the circumstances about which they have no control. They react to the defects found in other people. From this worrying, accusations, destructive criticism, feelings of blame, a reactive language and feelings of weakness and frustration can arise. They want others or the circumstances to change first and when that happens, then they will change. Whenever they think that the problem is on the outside, this thought is the problem. 

The negative energy produced as a result of this approach, combined with the lack of attention to the areas in which they could do something to improve the situation, means that the area of influence decreases in size. They give power to what is external so that it dominates them. In other words they think that change must come from "outside towards the inside"; they think that something that is outside must change before they themselves change.

Respond Positive & Be Powerful !

Like a dragon, be powerful and formidable. 
Be a watchful guardian of your inner treasures that contain your self-worth. 

Your wings carry you above any insults hurled your way. 
Any negativity is dispersed by the beating of your wings. 

And the fire you breathe burns any critical words before they emerge from your mouth. 

~ Brahma Kumaris, Mt Abu.

Stay Focused & Have A Clear Picture !

"She should not have done that!" "He should do this!" 

When we're busy judging others we become completely oblivious to what we should be doing! 
Instead, stay focused on what you have to do, then you will remain undisturbed by what others 'should' or 'should not' be doing. 

Visualization is to mentally picture yourself successfully accomplishing a task, before starting it. 
It is much more than wishful thinking. Having a clear picture of your outcome provides direction, generates confidence and eases frustration. As you think, so you become.

Be Contented & Get More Positive !

The more positive the thoughts flowing through my mind, the more contented I will feel.

It is easy to feel contented when we are praised and appreciated but to remain contented when we are being critised and rejected is the mark of real spiritual strength. The way to develop this level of strength is to learn about God's way of loving. Only when I am in deep contemplation can I see God showing me the kind of love I need to express so that I myself never reject or critise and always generate good wishes for others. Then I will feel satisfied no matter what life throws at me.
