The Happiness Experiment – Creating Habits

These inspiring words of Mahatma Gandhi suggest to me that our habits which are sustained by our actions, do define our values which in turn shape our destiny.

Your thoughts become your words,

Your words become your actions,

Your actions become your habits,

Your habits become your values,

Your values become your destiny.” — Mahatma Gandhi

So, if we work continuously on building great habits, then eventually, once established, those habits will start working for us in creating an amazing destiny.

5 Tips To Create Balance in Your Life

Have you ever examined your life and felt that it was out of balance? May be you have many projects that you follow at the same time?
It happens to me more that I would like to admit. In fact, that is what has inspired me to write this blog post.
In the following, I will present five tips that have helped me in my attempt to get a fair degree of balance back in life.

1 – Set Priorities

Determine what is important to you in life and prioritize. Act according to your priorities, and delegate whenever possible.

Plan to finish what you start and limit the number of projects that you tackle at the same time. Since people have different capabilities, find your own threshold and keep it in mind when you plan.

Maybe 2 or 3 big projects weekly is a good start. It does not have to be the same weekly projects throughout the month or the year. You can alternate your focus on various projects on a weekly basis.Keep Reading

How To Be a Loyal Friend

We can show our loyalty towards our friends directly in multiple ways. For example by caring, by being there in difficult times, by expressing our admiration of them to third party, etc…

But in certain situations, it is more difficult to demonstrate our loyalty, especially when our friends are not present.

Mary and Alice are friends. While they were catching up after a long time apart, Alice was explaining to Mary how Gabrielle, their common friend, has hurt her.

She was talking strongly about Gabrielle in a negative way, and Mary could sense, she was still deeply hurt from Gabrielle behavior. “I don’t want to talk to her anymore, and we are avoiding each other lately”, said Alice.Keep Reading

Gratitude and Intentions

I got more than what I asked for…

When we add intentions to the gratitude practice, we expand from being grateful for what we already have to being grateful for what we want to attract: experiences, people, circumstances, things and situations. We anticipate and thank in advance for what we are attracting.

On that day, I went for a walk with our son in the park and then we went for grocery shopping. It was unusually warm for a winter day and we met two young cheerful people, a girl and a boy who smiled to us, and I smiled back.

Life is What We Make Out of It

What do you expect from life? Financial independence? Great relationships? Health, fitness and vitality? Your own personal definition of success? You want it all?

The question is: What are you putting in? What are you ready to invest in order to get the outcome that you want?

We live the life that we have built. We can build our life actively but if we don’t, the outcome will be the default results of our inaction.

Right here and right now is the perfect place to start. We already have all that we need in our life right now. Even if we are not aware of it. The truth is we ARE alright here and now. That is a reason to be grateful for. Keep Reading
