Modern life has made our lives more complex. In your relentless race against time to earn more, live better, and scale higher in your chosen field, unorganized and stressful life, tension, and other problems catch up with you, thus making it difficult to achieve the most important goal of your life—happiness. Some take a toll on your health and emotional welfare. What’s more, they affect your loved ones and those with whom you share proximity.
However, you can overcome this problem if you change how you look at life. Gradually, day by day, you can change your life. Happiness, peace, and timeless knowledge are the fruits of this exercise.
The ideas I will share with you are the gems that can help you achieve all the fruits of life, and all it takes is a few minutes every day and much practice. Read this passage every day for a week—once in the morning, once during the day, and once aloud before you go to bed. At the end of the week, look back and reflect. You will discover little changes beginning to show. Change is beautiful. Begin now.
1) Good Deed a Day
Life offers opportunities to do good deeds every day. Don’t miss them if you haven’t given back your daily share.
Set aside some time every day for these deeds, and you will be happy you did. They are not an inconvenience, but a source of happiness and emotional fulfillment. To complete the reason for your existence, you must give as much as you take.
Look around, and you will find something good to do. These come as blessings in disguise.
2) Help Others
There is help asked for, and there’s help offered. Render both, and you are a noble soul. To help is a spiritual deed, and it merits well.
It makes you happy to be there and help.
To help is also a discovery of your strength. It is courage. It is a fight you have won against selfishness and greed, using your time, thoughts, and actions for someone other than yourself.
Help today, and soon, it will come back to you manifold.
3) Be Compassionate
Compassion, naturally, is the highest quality you can have, closest to godliness.
Look with kindly eyes. Speak words of kindness. Offer deeds of love. Above all, feel as others do.
That’s compassion. The love and care you offer others makes you what you are.
4) Practice Generosity
Generosity is the hallmark of great souls. Make a considerable difference to the existence of others.
If you don’t, you are poorer in happiness, experience, and virtues, which undermines your existence.
If you don’t practice generosity, you have placed matter over mind and selfishness over selflessness.
Give largely, and give yourself the pleasure of generosity.
5) Practice What You Preach
If it’s said, it should be done. It’s easy to say, and not do. It’s easier not to say it, but do it.
If you don’t practice what you preach, you are the owner of empty words, someone who doesn’t stand up to his words, and someone who doesn’t keep his words.
Great masters have always had the courage to stand, preach, and deliver, which shows maturity of soul, largeness of heart, and selflessness beyond compare.
Pray and preach, but practice what you preach.
Create a powerful day!
