every individual has different skills, gifts and talents. many times you find people that will say:
i don't have any talent.
i don't know what talent i have.
if this happens to you, don't panic. you are normal.
what you need to do is take the time to ponder about your potential, your possibilities and your opportunities.
when you ask yourself...
what's my mission in life?
what college am i going to attend?
what career will i have?
what about my family?
sooner or late you will receive the answer you seek. through meditation you will receive the inspiration you need to know exactly what your mission is. you will find the answers that will give you direction, comfort nd peace of mind.
do you know anybody who , once has started talking never stops? every time you try to say something or make a comment, he or she wouldn't be quiet. this situation may be extreme but sometimes it happens. it has been said that god gave us one mouth and two ears, because we need to spend more time listening than speaking.
in a day of digital cameras, ipods, cell phones, internet, there's just too much information. sometimes you simply need to be quiet ant listen. listen to your friends. listen to a family member. listen to yourself.
listening is the first step in learning. "seek first to understand and then be understood" is a good counsel taht will help you better communicate with your boss, friends, children, parents or spouse.
three men were doing the same kind of job and they were asked:
"what kind of work do you do ?"
the first man answered:
"i am laying bricks, one after another."
the second man answered:
"i am building a wall"
the third man answered:
"i am building a cathedral that will last for many centuries."
as you see, the work the three men were doing was the same, but each man had a different vision, understanding, and attitude regarding his work.
your life is very similar to this story. you hear the alarm clock. you wake up. you get up. you take a shower. you brush your teeth. you comb your hair. you go to school. tou go to work. come back home. answer your e-mails, watch some tv, go to bed and start all over again.
try to see the big picture behind everything you do.if you can see a purpouse in your daily activities, your work will be more pleasant. have a positive attitude toward your school, job and people around you. this will affect others and most importantly, it will affect you.
laughter is a universal language. it's so contagious that you can be in a country where you don't speak the language, and if you start laughing, probably people around you will start laughing too.
why does it feel so good to laugh?
every time you laugh your body produces a substance called endorphin. this substance makes you feel good. if you are in a bad mood, you will automatically feel better. so laughter is a natural antidepressant.
don't stop your laughter. laugh a lot each day. it's a great remedy for your health. laughter can help you deal with disappointment, frustration or despair.
here's an idea for you : take all the clothes you don't wear anymore even a shirt you really like - then choose someone or an organization and give all these clothes to someone who needs them more than you do.
this will make you feel much better and certainly will make the other individual happy.
