THE SUBTLE ART OF NOT GIVING A F*CK
– MARK MANSON
*The desire for more positive experience is itself a negative experience. And, paradoxically the acceptance of one’s negative experience is itself a positive experience.
*our brains don’t register much difference between physical pain and psychological pain.
So when your girlfriend cheats on you, that is why it feels like an ice pick slowly inserted into the center of your heart and that’s why it hurts so much.
* Emotions are overrated: .Emotions are evolved for one specific purpose which is to help us live and reproduce a little bit better. That’s it. They are feedback mechanisms telling us that something is either likely right or likely wrong for us- nothing more, nothing less.
*Hedonic treadmill :this is why our problems are recursive and unavoidable .the person you marry is the person you fight with. The house you buy is the house you repair. The dream job take is the job you stress over. Everything comes with an inherent sacrifice-whatever makes you feel good will also inevitably makes us feel bad.
* what determines your success isn’t,”what do you want to enjoy?” the relevant question is” what pain do you want to sustain”?
LIFE’S AMAZING SECRETS
– GAUR GOPAL DAS
*the founders of whatsapp did not get jobs at twitter and facebook when they applied, which worked out in their favour in the future. Hence, what we see as bad at one point in time can turn out to be the best thing to happen to us.
*we should understand ourselves to know what is meaningful to us and what we want to devote our time to. Discovering our purpose is exciting, just as opening a gift gives the feeling of anticipation and joy. Reaching our purpose in life is a journey ,not an event.
*we are not human beings having spiritual experiences ,we are spiritual beings having human experiences.We must connect to something above ourselves such as god.This can give us the power to spread happiness and joy around the world. We are not this body; we are a spiritual being.one of the most effective methods that works really well is mantra meditation.
*the philosophy of an ice cream is : enjoy it before it melts and that for a candle is :give light to others before it melts. In order to be happy we should shift our attitude from being an ice cream to candle, from being selfish to selfless. This is shown through service(being selfishly selfless)
YOU CAN WIN
*The journey to being your best is not easy. It is full of setbacks. Winners have the ability to overcome and bounce back with even greater resolve.
*STOP THE BLAME GAME: people who don’t accept responsibility shift the blame to their parents, teachers and genes. God, fate, luck or the stars. Responsible behavior should be inculcated right from childhood.it cannot be taught without a certain degree of obedience.
*For evil to flourish, good people have to do nothing and evil shall flourish-edmund burke
*Cheerfulness flows from goodness. A smile can be fake or genuine. The key is to have a genuine one.it takes more muscles to frown than to smile.it improves face value .who likes to be around a grouch? No one except may be a bigger grouch! A smile is contagious and is an inexpensive way to improve looks. A smiling face is always welcome.
*Courtesy is nothing more than consideration of others. A courteous person who is not very sharp, will go further in life than a discourteous but sharp person. It is the little irritants which test your patience. Scatter the seeds of courtesy wherever you can . Some are bound to take root and elevate you in the eyes of others.
– RHONDA BYRNE
*When you want to attract a relationship, make sure your thoughts, words, actions and surrounding don’t contradict your desires.
*Treat yourself with love and respect, and you will attract people who show you love and respect.
*Focus on the qualities you love about yourself and the law of attraction will show you more great things about you.
*Disease is held in the body by thought, by observation of the illness, and by the attention given to the illness. If you are feeling a little unwell, don’t talk about it-unless you want more of it. If you listen to people talk about their illness, you add energy to their illness. Instead, change the conversation to good things, and give powerful thoughts to seeing those people in health.
*The real secret of power is consciousness of power. As you begin to have a deeper understanding of the law of attraction you can start to make asking questions a habit, and as you do, you will receive the answer to each one.
– PAULO COELHO
Omens are the individual language in which god talks to you.my omens are not your omens. They are this strange , but very individual language that guides you towards your own destiny. They are not logical. They talk to you heart directly. The only way that you can learn any language is by making mistakes. I made my mistakes, but then I started to connect with the signs that guide me. This silent voice of god that leads me to the places where I should be.
