What do you focus on?
6th February 2015
What do you focus on?Do you focus on popularity over effectiveness? - Seek respect, not attention. It lasts longer and it’s far more useful in the end. Do things and build things that make a lasting difference. And above all, never confuse popularity with effectiveness. Being popular means you’re liked for a while. Being effective means you’ve made a difference. Or do you keep cutting corners and taking the easy way out? - Do what is right, not what is easy. And do the right thing even if no one else will ever know. Why? Because YOU will know. Do you get stuck on what you refer to as your mistakes. – It’s important that we forgive ourselves for making what we call mistakes. They are not mistakes, just the path we chose in that moment - Just learn from that moment and move forward. Make a pact with yourself today to not be defined by your past. Sometimes the greatest thing to come out of all your hard work isn’t what you get for it, but what you learn from it. A happy, successful life, after all, is not a life absent of problems, but one that’s been able to rise above them. You may experience suffering, heartbreak and loss. These circumstances can take a toll on your happiness, but do not lose hope. Think about the Yin and Yang in Chinese philosophy, which states that opposite forces are often interconnected. In suffering, you can find great strength, in heartbreak you can find resilience, and in loss you can find a renewed appreciation for life. Life is always Yin and Yang. Opposites are interdependent and interconnected. You can’t completely shield yourself from sadness without also shielding yourself from happiness. Be open to receive whatever life shows you and don't label things and never close off from the emotion
