Happy new year

Happy new year

Dear readers

The new year is less than a week away. All of you must be busy preparing to celebrate. What makes 1st January a special date from any other date? 1st January comes with a strong hope of changing our life for good. Positivity of mind is at the highest point.  So we make resolutions and start dreaming a beautiful future.

Dreams

Dreams are good. They charge us with positive energy. But wake up. Dreams are of two types. One is day dreaming and other realistic. When a dream is not specific or is vague it may be a day dream. Like dreaming of owning a plush apartment, a luxury car, enjoying exotic holidays are vague dreams. To have it all you need to raise your income to be able to spend on your dreams. So raising your income to that level is your real dream. Because this dream is measurable. Now you can plan a strategy to increase your income towards your goal.

Day dreams die out fast and so does the positivity associated with it.  So if you want to make the new year really happy and life changing, start with seeing a specific dream. Think what is that one thing you are missing most. It could be relationship, a coveted position in your job, or it could be an entrepreneur vision. Know well that money cannot be a goal. The goal is the means by which you are going to earn. Money is the outcome of satisfying your inner needs. Even if you find a loving, supporting relationship, the mental piece creates a spring of happiness. Happiness is the main source of positive energy. The positive energy allows your brain to think out of the box. It allows you to take the risks, negotiate obstacles. The more you do it, more positive energy gets released. The cycle goes on and then you break all barriers and reach your goal. You become victorious.

New year resolutions

The point I am trying to drive at is to choose a proper goal. Proper goal is the one that you are missing most in life. This could be a relationship with your spouse, children, or a friend. If you are having frequent arguments, then sorting out the problem could be your goal. Think about the problem and find solution by having heart to heart talk. If the relationship is beyond repairs, come out of it.

If you are a young adult, your goal could be to find love of your life. If you are a family person, your goal could be to satisfy your family members’ needs and also, provide them with enjoyment.

The major need is to have financial freedom. This requires review of your present job or profession. If you see opportunities, then find out how can you tap them. It may require updating or acquiring new skills. It may sometimes require your attitude and thought process,

If you do not see opportunities in your job, or you find your job not matching your characteristic, find a job of your interest and start reskilling yourself to be eligible for that job. Find a way to a smooth career transition.

You need to start your journey towards your dream. If you leave everything to fate, you will never find your dream. When you work intelligently in your job, and put in your efforts, your management rewards you by way of salary raise or promotion. Similarly, God showers blessings on those who work hard in fulfilling their dreams. Those who do not put in their efforts, often get neglected.

It is your choice, whether you want to contribute in making this new year a happy or a normal year. Prepare to welcome the new year not just by celebrating, but also by visualizing a dream and making plans to realize it.

I offer my best wishes. Wish you a happy and prosperous new year.

Happiness, most desired  feeling

During our life we get different feelings like fear, grief, tension, curiosity, and happiness. But happiness tops all the feelings. What makes happiness the most desired feeling? If you consider food, it comes in different tastes like hot, sweet, bitter and raw etc. Different people prefer different tastes. So is the case in case of arts, hobby etc. But when it comes to happiness it is the desired feeling for almost everybody.

Happiness a source of positivity

What makes it so special? It is because happiness when it comes occupies our mind and drives out all negativities from there. When we clear the computer of all the clutter, it starts working faster. Similarly, happiness clears the negativities from our mind, and makes space for innovative thinking. Innovative thinking boosts creativity. Happiness also serves as a miraculous energy tonic.

Creativity and energy together serve as a launch pad and booster for our progress. It is therefore important to achieve and preserve happiness to make life a pleasant journey.

How to keep ourselves happy

How to keep ourselves positive and find happiness frequently? Following are a few tips.

Find a few moments during your routine, once a day, once a week, or once a month with yourself. You should be alone and away from your daily grind during these moments to avoid distraction. Think of your painful memories or problems creating tension one at a time. Let your feelings flow freely. Calm down slowly. Convince your mind that the painful events have happened and have become a history. You or the person causing pains cannot go back to the past and make corrections. There is no use thinking over it. Most of the painful memories will get wiped out of your mind. A few of them will still remain, which you can never forget. But their frequency will reduce. The pain will lose its sting.

As regards to problems, convince yourself that the problem is real and needs to be tackled. There are two ways to do it. Either change your path to bypass the problem or find a way to solve it. You cannot stay with the problem. If you do not find a solution, consult a mentor.

Life tips

Here are a few tips to avoid creating unnecessary tension.

  1. Do not overcommit to anyone. It creates false hope in the person whom you overcommit. It may strain your relations if you are not able to fulfil the commitment and gives unnecessary tension to you.
  2. Learn to say a polite but firm no. It may cause a little bitterness at the moment, but avoids further tensions to you and the other person.
  3. Meditate whenever you find time.
  4. Spend some time on a hobby, movie, music of your interest to refresh yourself.
  5. Last but not least share your feelings with your closest person, who may be your partner, child, or a friend. This person can also serve as a mentor. You can find a mentor to help you. Having a mentor makes life easy.
