Highly Motivational Thoughts !!

When you have a strong aim you automatically receive the cooperation from others. 

When you take up a task, check if you are able to receive the cooperation from others. If not, check the strength of your own aim. The stronger your aim, you will find others coming forward to help you fulfill your aim. Each morning remind yourself of the aim that you have to achieve. List out mentally why fulfilling that aim is important for you. This will further help in strengthening the aim.

~ Brahma Kumaris, Mt Abu.

Learn to enjoy every minute of your life. Be happy now. 
Don't wait for something outside of yourself to make you happy in the future.   
Think how really precious is the time you have to spend, 
whether it's at work or with your family. 
Every minute should be enjoyed and savored.

~   Earl Nightingale

Have The Determination To Bring Our Thoughts Into Practice !

Determination is a combination of single-mindedness and flexibility. 

When you are determined, you're sure of what you have to achieve and you're able to move in the right direction. And when an obstacle comes your way, you're able to take it in your stride; like a river you can forge your route towards the destination.

If we are stuck or trapped in our own thoughts we will not have control over them. When we observe them, we separate ourselves from them and we provide a space, and this is how we can control them and channel them in the direction we wish. In order to have control over something we must look at it from a certain distance, like an impartial observer. This practice helps us to realise the influences, both positive and negative, that there are in our life. 

Observing our thoughts (which we do in the process of meditation) is the first step in understanding and, in the last analysis, taking full responsibility for them.

The higher type of man clings to virtue, 
the lower type of man clings to material comfort.  
The higher type of man cherishes justice, 
the lower type of man cherishes the hope of favors to  be received.

use that ability as best we can."

Be Courageous And Bring About A Change !

Sometimes no matter how hard and fast you work, you still miss a deadline. Is it the end of the world if a deadline is missed, especially if the deadline is self-imposed? 

Maybe, the next time there's little chance in meeting a deadline, ask for an extension and re-schedule the deadline. Give yourself permission to relax and lower your stress levels. Then you'll have more energy to get back to working harder and faster.

Think Positively To Experience Progress In Life !

At the end of the day, on the wings of your thoughts, go beyond the cares and troubles of the world. Remove your mind from everything and everyone, and become blissfully detached, like a star.

Like a star, be free to radiate light, for your essence is light and peace. Enjoy the simplicity of the night sky, the peace. And then, when you want to, you can shoot down to earth. 

~ Brahma Kumaris, Mt Abu.
