Often our lives get entwined in the mundane. We live each day- work, eat, sleep without giving a single thought to our core happiness. Even if those thoughts do come, we brush them away as impossibilities and continue existing. You know what I’m talking about right…that happiness that comes from completely and totally knowing yourself. Knowing who you are, what you need, what makes you tick, what makes you thrive. But we live, correction, we exist.
Is this the way to live Happily? Are you REALLY truly ALIVE?
Hence, when I started writing this article, I had the many people in mind who still are looking for the meaning. Looking for the answer to the age old question of “why am I here?”. I’m always in introspective mode. Constantly trying to become a better person, a purer heart, a cleaner soul. This has helped me look at some aspects of my life too… Where I need to infuse more passion and where I need to dream and BE more. What I have noticed is that whatever you do, whatever your goals, your desires…there is only the simple 3P Approach we need to reach them, to be completely Happy & Successful.
The Simple 3P Approach to Ultimate Happiness and Success:
“Practice means to perform, over and over again in the face of all obstacles, some act of vision, of faith, of desire. Practice is a means of inviting the perfection desired.”~ Martha Graham
If you have a passion for something but still aren’t good at it, its ok. Practice practice practice. If there is a habit you want to give up, that too requires practice, a practice to control self. All spiritual masters say that if you practice a habit for 40 days continuously, it becomes part of you. Keep that in mind and keep practicing.
“We learn by practice. Whether it means to learn to dance by practicing dancing or to learn to live by practicing living, the principles are the same. One becomes in some area an athlete of God.” ~ Martha Graham
“With time and patience the mulberry leaf becomes a silk gown.” ~ Chinese Proverb
In this quick fix, fast forward world we often forget that the things that are most precious to us have come to us after a lot of time and patience. Be it having a baby, before which a mother has to carry it to term 9 months. Ask an expecting mother how long that 9 months seems to her. But she keeps her thoughts positive and dreams of how her life will be with that bundle of joy in her arms. Looking ahead, dreaming good dreams, keeping your thoughts positive all helps in developing patience.
“Knowing trees, I understand the meaning of patience. Knowing grass, I can appreciate persistence.”~ Hal Borland
“A little more persistence, a little more effort, and what seemed hopeless failure may turn to glorious success.”~ Elbert Hubbard
When things don’t go according to plan, according to our expectations we get upset, agitated and give up. Look around you…how many projects have you started and not finished? How many ideas have you thought of that haven’t seen the light of day? Its these ideas, these sudden bursts of thoughts that hold the key to your uniqueness, your passion…YOU! We all need to be more persistent towards our-selves, towards our ideas and our thoughts. Take out 2 minutes in a day to scan your life and yourself- Bring out all those ideas, those thoughts and let them breathe. You will Breathe such a sigh of happiness when you do. Follow through those ideas to the very end. Who knows this idea, this thought is what will MAKE you..
“Energy and persistence conquer all things.”~ Benjamin Franklin
Its About the Journey
To me success is not the end result, its the journey, its the learning through it, its the moments where I fail and pick myself up. Its the failures that teach me more about myself. Getting up after a fall and standing tall…that is true success to me. The kind of success that gives me happiness and makes me feel like a conqueror- a conqueror of my Self. Because in fine tuning myself, in conquering my own limitations I raise myself to levels of learning I would not have normally reached. This knowledge of self helps to pave way for clarity of thought and action. That BIG purpose of life seems just a step away then. You can almost taste it!
GO on now, try this Simple 3P Approach and taste ultimate happiness and success. You know you want to … 🙂
