Beware of the tiny daily decisions you make: They have an enormous impact on your life

Published

on

Statistics show that the average person makes more than 300 small decisions per day. We decide what to eat, how we’ll eat, what to watch, what to buy, where to buy, and many more things. I prefer to name these decisions, ‘tiny decisions.’

Most of us are unaware that these decisions have a great impact on the direction our lives take. We are unconscious of the fact that every day we make decisions that either steer us away or towards a prosperous life.

From the moment we wake up, we decide to be happy or sad. We decide the attitude we’ll have towards people; we also decide whether to work hard or not. We decide many things, and these decisions have a great impact on our lives.

If 90 percent of our tiny daily decisions are poor, then there is a high chance that we might fail in life. On the other hand, if 90 percent of the tiny daily decisions are in alignment with our goals, then whatever we want is guaranteed.

For instance, if you want to save money for some huge investment, the number of decisions you make daily in relation to your expenditure will determine if you will manage to save that money within that period.

We, therefore, have to be aware of every small decision we make from the moment we wake up. If we were aware of the effects of all our decisions, then everybody could be living the lives they want.

Being aware of the fact that, each decision, however insignificant it may seem, affects our future, makes us make decisions that are in tune with our goals. And if all our small decisions are in alignment with our goals, then prosperity is guaranteed.

      Thank You…..and its true the long term is deeply connected with THE NOW..THE NOW is where we’ll always live. Therefore, we must ensure that all the decisions we make NOW are in tune with our goals.

7 Things We Must Stop Doing If We Want to be Happy

Published

on

We all want to be happy because happiness is a wonderful emotion. However, we seldom find happiness because we constantly do things that steal our happiness. Some people are conscious of these things, while most of us aren’t.

This article strives to increase your happiness levels by listing the seven major things we must stop doing if we want to be happier.

1.Living Up to the Society’s Expectations

We love living up to the society’s expectations, and we thus become unhappy when we are in a position that prevents us from aligning with what the society wants. Besides, living up to the society’s expectations makes us unhappy because it prevents us from being authentic.

2.Overanalyzing the Future

Overanalyzing the future by trying to pinpoint all possibilities steals our happiness because it results in anxiety. It makes us constantly worry about the things that can go wrong, even when they are beyond our control.

3.Wanting What Others Have

Most of us are addicted to wanting what celebrities, politicians and our Facebook friends have. We think we’ll live happier lives if we obtain what these folks have. Little do we know that wanting what others have causes unhappiness because it results in envy and makes us feel inadequate. 

4.Watching the News

The News makes us over-focus on the negative part of life by showing us how other people are suffering, and it usually results in us worrying about things that are beyond our circle of influence.

5.Forcing People to Behave the Way We Want

We become frustrated when we force people to behave the way we want because we can’t control their environment, thoughts, and everything that affects their behavior. I stopped forcing my friends and siblings to behave the way I want, and I strived to accept their behavior after realizing that my efforts often resulted in anger and disappointment, which eventually made me unhappy.

6.Identifying With Our Material Possessions

Identifying our worth with our material possessions leads to sadness when we lose them. Moreover, it results in us constantly worrying about losing our possessions and how we’ll replace them.

7.Holding Grudges

‘Anger, resentment, and hatred are poisons that you drink, and you expect somebody else to die.’ –Sadhguru, Indian Mystic

Holding a grudge against someone makes us unhappy because it leads to negative emotions such as anger, hate, jealousy, and resentment. Furthermore, it makes us dwell on bad feelings or the events that led to the grudge. Also, it prevents us from enjoying the present moment by making us focus on how we’ll get back at those who wronged us.

Conclusion

The universe provided us with everything we need to be happy. However, we sabotage our happiness by doing the above things. We must, therefore, stop doing them if we want to be happy.

5 Major Reasons Worry is Useless

Published

on

Although you would love to worry less, you mostly find yourself worrying about everything. You worry about losing your loved ones, lacking money, failing to get a promotion, and many other things.

You worry because you focus on the negative side of life and you are unaware that worry is useless because of the following reasons:

1.You Don’t Know Everything About the Future

Worrying implies that you know everything that might happen in the future. However, there are high chances that you haven’t reached the level of consciousness that allows you to know what might happen in the future. For this reason, your worry is founded on assumptions or beliefs based on past experiences, and you don’t know whether they are accurate because you don’t know everything about the future.

2.You Might Die Tomorrow

You don’t know when you’ll die because death is unpredictable. You can die in the next moment or tomorrow while crossing the road or driving to work. Worrying is thus useless because you might be worried about a future that might arrive when you are dead.

3. The Future is Unpredictable

You worry because you believe life will happen according to your predictions. However, life is always changing. The social, political, and economic environment is constantly changing, and there are high chances your predictions are false. Besides this, although bad things can happen tomorrow, good things can happen regardless of what is happening in your life right now because the future is unpredictable.

4.The Only Reality is Now

The future is unreal because it doesn’t exist outside your mind. It’s only real in your imagination which is based on your subjective understanding of life. The only reality you can experience is ‘the now’ because you’ll always exist in ‘the now.’ For this reason, worrying about the future is useless.

5.Worry Doesn’t Change Anything

Worry is useless because it doesn’t change anything. You can’t create a favorable future by continually worrying about it because worry prevents you from seeing things clearly. Besides this, it wastes the time and mental energy you could have used to take action that will create a desirable future.

Conclusion

Focus on how you can create a desirable future, instead of focusing on anxious thoughts. Moreover, shift from worry to faith by realizing that Infinite Intelligence/the Universe is always working on creating a bright future for you because you are its physical extension. Also, let worry alarm you, but don’t dwell on it. Lastly, trust that everything will fall into place and realize that you have the power to create your ideal future.
