Walk Humbly With God


In this present generation there are whole lots of things one wants to do: from becoming a success in all areas of life, to gaming, to vacationing, to exercising, to maintaining good physical appearance and more. The only problem is time. Because almost everything is available with just one click, one is confused what to do first. Sadly, because of the busy-ness of life we tend to forget our very purpose in this world. We tend to forget what God requires of us. Praying, religion, Christianity seem to be things of the past. Then when something does not turn out quite well, it is then we remember God and ask Him why.

In our everyday dealings have we seen people who are merciful, just and humble? Are they common? Or even ourselves; are we merciful, just and humble? What we often see now are people who are competitive, goal-oriented and success-oriented. There is no wrong belonging to this group because they give positive impact. Yet, let us not forget that whatever goals and success we are after, God should be in the center, and that when  we become a success may it be rooted in the values of being just, merciful and humble.

The Power of Beliefs

Image Credit

     Everyday is a happy day for me. I'm learning new things without the fear of losing myself. It's the fear of losing our self in the process that prevents us from learning and trying new things. When we open our hearts and minds to developing and improving ourselves life becomes inspiring and exciting.

     Today I found these powerful beliefs from Anthony Robbins blog. I love to share it here. 

1. The past does not equal the future.
2. There is always a way if I’m committed.
3. There are no failures, only outcomes—as long as I learn something I’m succeeding.
4. If I can’t, I must; if I must, I can.
5. Everything happens for a reason and a purpose that serves me.
6. I find great joy in little things… a smile… a flower… a sunset.
7. I give more of myself to others than anyone expects.
8. I create my own reality and am responsible for what I create.
9. If I’m confused, I’m about to learn something.
10. Every day above ground is a great day.

     Hope this helps you too.

How to Develop Self-Esteem


     Self-esteem and happiness are connected, right. You know when you open your eyes to everything that could improve you, the right things will come. Creating a blog about happiness is a learning tool for me to become happy. I used to believe it is just all about spirituality. But no, everything has to be balanced and incorporated. I am excited to really feel that I am on my way to genuine happiness, and I am happy to know that I could share it with all of my readers.

     I never thought of self-esteem as a first step to happiness. But now it seems to make sense. I am that naive, am I? Anyway, I believe it is -- that self-esteem is the first step to happiness. Thanks to wikihow for posting this one. I know many of you could relate with me what poor self-esteem could do to a person; they are failure and delay of success. 

     So much for that, here are the following methods that wikihow shared in developing self-esteem:

1. Work on Improving Yourself
   - dress nicely
   - have good hygiene
   - practice good posture
   - workout regularly
   - give back to others

     I'm glad to say I'm doing all these things now. My workout is yoga and it's making me feel great. As to giving back to others the only way I could give back is through blog posts and sharing positive thoughts and ideas in social networking sites. This is the only way my time could afford at the moment. And I'm happy doing this.

2. Make Yourself Stand Out
   - compliment other people
   - sit in the front row
   - speak up
   - walk faster

     There is no problem with me about giving compliments. I'm able to do it. Sitting in the front row makes me nervous all through out college days. And even after. This is how shy and fearful I am. But now I'm trying to overcome this shyness with being pleasant. Speaking up made me nervous too, even though I know fully well how right I am. I guess the childhood experience that is continually playing it's role on me is being always told to shut up even if I'm only telling the truth and is speaking my side. I was always told to shut up. So I have carried with me the fear of speaking up. I'm just glad I love to speak up spontaneously through writing. So this I do. But of course, I also have to learn to speak up in gatherings or wherever and whenever needed. 

3. Remove Your Negative Self-Esteem
   - start from within
   - create daily affirmations
   - start with small steps to gain confidence
   - please yourself
   - be your own person
   - avoid negative people
   - face your fears and learn from your failures
   - stop the negative thoughts
   - don't worry about being perfect
   - learn to appreciate yourself
   - reward yourself when you succeed

     In short love yourself the right way. Negative self-esteem is borne out of how unaware people have hurt us when we were younger. Our minds have been injected with the false belief that we are unworthy. But the moment we wake up to the truth of how precious we are, wow, we are reborn. I know waking up is not easy, especially when negative past seems a nightmare. Yet every problem has a solution. This made me remember the question: How do you eat an elephant? The answer -- chop the elephant first then eat it piece by piece. This is how to solve a seemingly insurmountable problem. Removing negative self-esteem is one of them. Let's just follow wikihow's steps and couple it with lots of faith. It can be done. Is it?

"Wow Mental Toughness"

Photo Credit
     If you know about Darren Hardy and is following his articles, you surely have stumbled upon this idea. Mental toughness. How is it working? How is it helping me achieve happiness and bliss? Before I answer this myself, let me share Darren's quote first: " Whoever is more mentally strong will win, succeed, and live the life they were meant to live." I used to believe that the way to happiness is just simple--just live simply sans material things, love God, live peaceably with men, stay away from messing with bad people. As simple as that. Yet as simple as it sounds, the hardest it is to do. Why? Because the road to happiness is not only in the outside environment; the work must be focused more on the inside. And nobody's got a perfect childhood. Nobody. All of us received the "ideas and beliefs" of the older generation about our existence that still needs improvement. We are still at the age of the 'ah' and 'ow, is that it?' existence. We are still at the process of becoming. That is why I am not so much sold on the idea of the "...5 things or 10 ways to become happy"... Some of those ways help. But only temporarily. If someone is to become happy for life, one must work on it within himself. And one way of doing this, is achieving that mental toughness that Darren is talking about. I'll be off now to work on that mental toughness.

Someone Is Happy Because You Exist

Photo Credit

     When stressed out I could not help myself feeling down, and eventually unhappy. No one could escape from stress especially when the place itself is stressful, in which my workplace belongs to. I'm now on the process of looking for ways to make my situation lighter.

     Anyway, when in blue days, you know those days when someone makes you feel unworthy,  I just hold on to the thought that  many are loving me as I am. I'm talking about my family; my husband, my kids. When my kids hug and kiss me, I feel like a diamond that is so precious for them. And when my husband embraces me, I feel like the most beautiful woman in the world. So need I be unhappy and ungrateful for the life I am given and the situation I am in? Of course not. I am always happy no matter what. Hope you too.

     Get Happy!
