What Are We Here For?
Let’s consider the reason for us being here on Earth. We are here to enjoy life in all it’s many wonders. To do this we must make this a better place to live in. To live a useful life while we are here, we must use all our talent, time and energy to spread the message of Love, Peace and Happiness.
When you read the above, you probably thought: Oh, No! Are you kidding? I have enough trouble getting to work/Or looking for a job/Or sorting out all these rows with my partner. Can’t you sort the world out and fit me into a good position in it?
Now it’s my turn to say: Are you kidding? If I could do that and charge everybody who wanted it £1(U.K), I could get enough cash to buy California. LOL.
It doesn’t work that way. I can’t do it for you, but I can teach you . Nobody can give you Love, Peace and Happiness. You have to create it yourself. So now it’s your turn to say: Are you kidding? I can’t make the whole world a better place to live in.
How Can We Do That
And you are right! That would be a massive job indeed. Just like eating an elephant. But you know the way to eat an elephant, don’t you. One bite at a time. And this is what you will do. In Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) we call this ‘Chunking Down’.What you do is break a big task down into small bite sized pieces. Pieces that you can handle easily. So you can forget about the whole world and even your street and even your house for now. Forget about me doing it for you, forget about you doing it for other people and concentrate on you doing it for yourself. That is a big enough bite for you to chew on. So let’s break it down a bit.
Working On Yourself
Let’s chunk that down further into three bites:
1) Your beliefs. What you believe that you can do.
2) Your attitudes. How you approach things.
3) Your behaviour. Things that you do
So how do you go about increasing the amount of Love, Peace and Happiness in those three areas of your life. Well, you could start Googling them. The trouble with Googling them is that it takes a lot of time and with the good results you als0 get a lot of rubbish. Or you could join The Happy People at https://happinessguru.wordpress.com You will become an expert in great living. Then, when you are enjoying your full share of life’s goodies, then, when you have reached the level where you are supposed be, then you can think about changing the world.
There is another solution to how you eat an elephant. You invite all your friends to share it with you. And this what I would like you to do. If you like this article, share the link https://happinessguru.wordpress.com with as many people as you can. Help to make the world a better place for everybody to live in.
Join The Happy People yourself. Share that link with a friend. Now you can discuss the ideas, attitudes and philosophy behind both of you becoming Happy People.
Love, Peace and Happiness, Tommy.
