The best way to take care of the future is to take care of the present moment.
The quality of your action depends on the quality of your being. Suppose you’re eager to offer happiness, to make someone happy. That’s a good thing to do. But if you’re not happy, then you can’t do that. In order to make another person happy, you have to be happy yourself. So there’s a link between doing and being. If you don’t succeed in being, you can’t succeed in doing. If you don’t feel that you’re on the right path, happiness isn’t possible. This is true for everyone; if you don’t know where you’re going, you suffer. It’s very important to realize your path and see your true way.
5 Habits for a New Year to Love
1. Write things down. Whether you are forgetful or not, writing down ideas big and small will get them out of your head. Names, Dates, Appointments, Gift Ideas, Project Plans, Grocery Lists, Books to Read, Song Name etc…
2. Find a home for all of your things. Eliminate unnecessary possessions and live as minimally as you can. Be selective about the things you buy, give, and keep.
4. Listen Actively. As you listen to a friends problem – thinking of what you’re going to say next, that time when you were in this situation, or a solution that might help them are taking away from the moment. Dedicate your attention and listen ACTIVELY
5. Set your alarm early. Being an early riser gives you some uninterrupted time in the morning to organize your home, your workspace, your thoughts or whatever else needs it. Click here for tips on becoming a morning person.
