“Do not allow the little things of today to disturb you.”

Author unknown

When an issue upsets you, try to remember how small and insignificant that issue is in comparison to what other people are going through all over the world. Some people have no food, no water, no shelter, no health…is your problem really that important?

Why do we give so much time and attention to the little things?

Why are the causes of disagreement so often on the little things?

Why don’t we invest our time on the real important issues of our lives?

“The best part of our lives we pass in counting on what is to come”

William Hazlitt

Instead of enjoying and being thankful for what we have now…

Have a nice day .

“Happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony”

Mahatma Gandhi

It saves so much time when we choose to align the thinking, the saying and the doing altogether.

But why don’t we do this more consistently ?

“Joy is not in things, it is in us!”

Benjamin Franklin

In our consumer society, we are bombarded everyday with advertisements that try to persuade us that we need a certain new toy to be happy.

And once we get the new house, new car, new boat, new clothes …will it really make us happy?

And for how long?

Benjamin Franklin wrote this quote more than 250 years ago before the advent of the consumer society.

I believe he was right. Joy has to be from inside us.

Where does your joy come from?

“Avoid with fury the killers of time “

Og Mandino

Most of the time, we are not even aware of how we waste our time.

One of the ways that I found to avoid repeating the same mistake too often is to write it down after becoming aware of it.

The more I become aware of something, the more I will increase the chances of correcting the undesired behaviour.

Have you identified your “killers of time” ?

“There’s only one corner of the universe you can be certain of improving, and that’s your own self.”

Aldous Huxley

This is so true. But why is it so hard to admit or to accept?

Gandhi said;

“You must be the change you wish to see in the world.”

 

Will you try it today?
