Hieronder nog een (korte) aflevering over SUCCES.
Deze serie is een mengsel van Engelstalige en Nederlandstalige stukken.
Sommige onderwerpen lenen zich nu eenmaal beter voor de ene taal.
Share these pearls of wisdom with anyone who may benefit from this practical advice for living a successful, positive life – every day!
Chasing success is like trying to squeeze a handful of water.
The tighter you squeeze, the less water you get.
When you chase it, your life becomes the chase, and you become a victim of always wanting more.
If you refuse to change your job (if you don’t like it), the only sensible thing you can do is practice loving it every day.
Enjoy everything that happens in your life, but never make your happiness or success dependent on an attachment to any person, place or thing.
The more you see yourself as what you’d like to become, and act as if what you want is already there, the more you’ll activate those dormant forces that will collaborate to transform your dream into your reality.
Most people are searching for happiness outside themselves.
That’s a fundamental mistake.
Happiness is something you are, and it comes from the way you think.
You are in a partnership with all other human beings; it’s not a contest to be judged better than some and worse than others.
Life is never boring, but some people choose to be bored.
Boredom is a choice.
Treat yourself and others with kindness when you eat, exercise, play, work, love, and everything else.
Money – like health, love, happiness, and all forms of success that you want to create for yourself – is the result of living purposefully. It is not a goal unto itself.
The opposite of courage is not so much fear as conformity.
View everyone who comes into your life as a teacher.
Forgiveness is the most powerful thing you can do for yourself.
If you can’t learn to forgive, you can forget about achieving true success in your life.
There are limits to material growth, but there are no limits to inner enlightenment.
