12 ways to Just DO Good for the Joy of it

12 ways to Just DO Good for the Joy of it“Do all the good you can. By all the means you can. In all the ways you can. In all the places you can. At all the times you can. To all the people you can. As long as ever you can.”― John Wesley

Having traveled extensively to many countries and meeting many many souls, I have noticed one common negative trait in almost 95% of people(for sometime even me!). What is this negative trait?

Here it is: We do good(awesome!), but only because we feel like we are going to get something back in return(not so awesome!). Doing good for personal gain is no good at all.

As an occupational hazard, I tend to analyze everything. So, when someone I know made a huge donation to a charity dear to my heart I was mighty pleased ofcourse….up until this ‘someone’ started talking to press and media about the huge donation they had made. Now I know these people…I know they started out donating money to this charity out of the goodness of their heart. But, almost unconsciously, when that goodness of heart turned into self promotion and self gain is hard to pin point. Continue reading

Today is 21/12/12! Woohoo!

I’m excited about this date. I really want to live to see this day through and be able to tell my little grand kids, “I beat an Apocalypse!” Continue reading

6 Positively Powerful tips to Re-ignite Your Excitement about Life

“Get excited and enthusiastic about you own dream. This excitement is like a forest fire – you can smell it, taste it, and see it from a mile away.” ~Denis Waitley

I simply love that quote because it reminds me that it’s up to me to make each day and each dream super special. That doesn’t mean that each moment of every day is going to be wonderfully smooth, uneventful, and happy. But it does mean that it is up to me to take action, take charge of each day to make sure I’m excited about being in a whole body and about being alive and kicking and loving. Dreams can become realities when there is enough excitement tied to them. Excitement daily acts like fuel to your Big Big Dreams. Continue reading

How to Enjoy and Find Happiness in the process of Doing tasks

“Be Happy in the moment, thats enough. Each moment is all we need, not more.” ~ Mother Teresa

Last week I shared with you tips on how to positively become a whiz at prioritization. So, now that you have your positive priority list in order, lets look at how this process of “doing” can be just as happily satisfying as the actual end result.

We all sleep at night with a to do list in our mind. Even if you are not the list making kind, you do surely make a mental list. Nothing wrong with that. This list can include waking up at a certain time, eating at a certain time, eating a particular breakfast, dropping the kids off to school, responding to a few social calls, paying the bills, work engagements, reading a book…. or yes something as mundane as just doing the dishes. We all have things we need to do in our life. Be it small or big tasks, we all have a pull to do them. These tasks big or small in turn help to make life run smoothly and give you much satisfaction with the end result. Continue reading

Being in a state of gratitude can completely transform one’s disposition. The more we pause to consider the things we have to be grateful for, the more we begin to focus on those things. Continue reading
