~ Thoughts To Remember ~


One of my college batchmates, recently attended a thought enhancement program.

He shared with me some great thoughts, whch i would like to share further!
I spent quality time pondering over each of these thoughts and experienced a lot of peace inside!!

1. Learn how to laugh at yourself.Being cool doesn't mean being perfect. People will only respect you for it.
.
.
2. How to grow a friendship? Pick a clean heart, plant in a pot of trust, water with good thoughts, add some faith, remove the misunderstanding & nourish with care!
.
.
3. Accept who you are! Every human being is different.
.
.
4. Your mind is tired because of its quest for desire after desire. What you achieve does not give you rest but creates more desires.
.
.
5. Team work simply states that it is Less 'ME' and More 'WE'.
.
.
6. Believe in yourself, never stop having faith in yourself or your vision, even if others tell you that you are crazy.
.
.
7. Understand that just as money can't buy happiness, a lack of it can't take happiness away.
.
.
8. Be positive. Avoid self-pity. Never allow others to make you feel inferior, they can only do so if you let them.
.
.
9. Always be positive.When you hear yourself saying 'you can not' , your mind will be conditioned in the same way.
.
.
10. To bear what is uncomfortable is discipline. To be able to bear and move through what is uncomfortable, you need a discipline.
.
.
11. Do anything 100%; that will free you.
.
.
12. You clean your windows, you clean your table, you wash your clothes, but you forget to wash your mind.
.
.
13. Have some time for yourself. You may be busy with a lot of friends and activities but make sure you still have time to be alone and reflect.
.
.
14. Place tomorrow's top priority task at the center of your desk before you leave work today. You'll start your day focused.
.
.
15. If you are loving, you are welcomed everywhere. if you can feel & be one with people anywhere you go, people are ready to do anything.
.
.
16. The best Puja- the best form of worship, is to be happy, to be grateful.
.
.
17. Your first and foremost commitment in life is to be with the Truth, to evolve in Truth. Give your best shot every time and be happy always..
.
.
18. Always maintain your integrity.A dishonest person has no chance of having true friends.
.
.
19. Keep your promises, do what you say you are going to do and most importantly, do not lie! Lying leads to more lying and you eventually will be found out.
.
.
20. Becoming a millionaire means learning to value passion and ideas, where others only value degrees and job titles.
.
.
21. Spiritual Blossoming simply means being happy in all dimensions with yourself and with everything around you.
.
.
22. We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.
.
.
23. Hang around with positive people who are actually aware of things you do and care what you have done.

Nice one.

But I don't think I totally agree with #7

" Understand that just as money can't buy happiness, a lack of it can't take happiness away."

Lack of money = Poverty. And "poverty can't take happiness away" !!! Hmm..
That's hard to swallow.

Anjali..i can understand that the practical side of life may make it hard to swallow..

But i took it this way: if i get rich, i may or may not get happier..just like if i lose money, i may or may not get sadder...

Life's fundaas...i got to discover much more myself to understand ur point better..

Thanks a ton for reading them!!!

Cheers~

On an unrelated note, the bird in the pic is a Satyr Tragopan, one of the endangered species of pheasants found in India.
