Love, Peace and Happiness is what this blog is about. And other related matters. I have just read a terrific article about people achieving the things that they want to achieve. I have put some of the particularly exciting parts below. I have added my comments in italics. Although the article does not deal with our particular interests directly, there are many, many lessons here for all of us to learn about how to get happy.
The Article Says
I’m constantly awed by the power of the human spirit, depth of human ingenuity and our ability to accomplish the most amazing of feats. Two great examples are the London Olympics and successful Mars landing of NASA’s Exploratory Rover Curiosity.
The Olympic Games put human strength, dexterity and endurance on full display. They provided a monumental stage for the globe’s best athletes to show the world what real dedication, uncompromised motivation, true self-belief and relentless practice can bring you. These elite athletes teach us all about the numerous rewards that come from unwavering persistence, hard physical labor and personal sacrifice.
Me: That’s right. Just think about the unwavering persistence, hard physical labor and personal sacrifice that these people put into getting what they want. When I think of how easy it is in effort to make big changes in your life, how effortless it can be to get happiness, better relationships and personal success into your life, it amazes me how few people actually do it,
Article: You’d be surprised what you can do when you have to.
Me: You will. Once you start to do what you have to do to get the things that you want to get, you’ll be amazed at how easy it is.
Article: When I think about the accomplishments of the Olympic athletes and NASA scientists, I’m struck by how little time and effort so many people truly put into bettering their lives and reaching their dreams.
Far too many people just amble through their lives on autopilot and don’t put forth the effort needed to reach their goals and maximize their potential. There’s a tendency today to want to get things quickly done while putting forth as little exertion as possible.
I see this all the time with people who want to lose weight. They say all the right things, read all the right books and talk a mean game plan. But they fall ridiculously short when it comes to putting their money where their mouth is.
So in the spirit of the past 2012 Summer Olympics and successful landing of the NASA rover Curiosity on Mars, I challenge you to push the envelope in your life. Allow these two incredible events from the past couple of weeks to ignite your motivational fire and drive you toward success and achievement too.
I bet that there’s something crossing your mind at this very moment that you know needs more of your time, effort and attention. Perhaps you’ve given up on it or maybe you haven’t even begun to attack it.
I’m here to tell you that it’s time for that to change. Whatever still remains undone or unattended to in your life, make today the day you begin to implement an action plan that will move you toward it.
Me: That’s right. Start today. Start getting lots of love, freedom from stress, enjoyment and achievement into your life now. The sooner you get started the sooner you’ll be enjoying it. Read some of the articles below this on the blog. Look at the articles in the archives. SHARE this material with people.Discuss it with people. One of the best ways to get happier is to share happy stuff with other people.
Article: To make this happen, you’ll need to utilize both your physical skills, like the Olympic athletes, and mental skills, like the forward-thinking and problem-solving NASA scientists.
Me: You don’t have to. You won’t even break a sweat. All you have to use is the power of thought. That may be hard at first but not as hard as Olympic Athletics. LOL.
Article: …………. if you can think it, you can do it. But it takes a healthy combination of both thought and action to make it happen. As some unknown author said: You can’t plow a field by turning it over in your mind!
Me: It is important to share and discuss the ideas on this blog with other people. If they disagree with you, then argue with them and try to convince them. This is an important part of your training because even if you don’t convince them, you are convincing yourself about the soundness of your ideas. You are building up your Happiness Mindset and that is important for you. Even when they are not listening, YOU are listening. When YOU are talking, you can’t help listening. Sometimes you are the only person listening. LOL
This is an improved type of Affirmation. You know what an Affirmation is. It’s when you repeat “Every day, in every way, I’m getting better and better” many times during the day. Slowly but surely it will come true for you.talking about In the same way when you start discussing with your friends about happiness, you are giving yourself the Affirmation that you can get happier. And that “Every day, in every way, YOU are getting happier and happier.” In this way you re using the Law Of attraction.
Don’t worry about convincing your friends. Just concentrate on convincing yourself first. When you have happiness to spare, then you can spread it to them. But that will be later.
