Fundamental Techniques of foundation of a happy life
This book relates you with your day to day issues of personal, professional, and social life. Before explaining the four principles hereby I want to inform this book is fully filled with great and easiest illustrations which help to understand the concept of each principle.
Ice cream and a candle are one of the better drawings in this book that I particularly enjoyed. In the long term, he explains whether you can be one or try to do something else. Candles burn out, but they illuminate others. On the other hand, Ice cream melts over time and does not benefit a big audience but still tries to change before the meeting begins.
Seeing the positive in terrible situations appears to be the most difficult task for anyone. When you have negativity takes over the mind, we lose our ability to focus on the beauty around us and, as a result, our ability to solve issues reduces. We must train our minds to think positively and feel capable of dealing with issues.
GRATITUDE is another method to live a happy and exciting life. Gratitude is the thankful people who are happy, not the happy people who are grateful! During difficult periods in life, we learn who truly cares about us, and being grateful for their support provides us with the inner strength to overcome obstacles.
So, your difficult time helps you to find out the right people who love you heartedly. Don’t take your bad time as a negative circle of your time this is the time to know the reality of people and your strength.
Don’t worry about things over which you don’t have control. If you are stuck with those things you don’t have control then it will cause a development path. Be positive and work hard with the strength of positivity whether you control the things or not. In both cases, we should don’t worry.
Our happiness is built on a foundation of spiritual practice. It leads us through difficult times and grounds us at happy moments. Regular practices of spiritual boost the adaptability to accept the reality easily.
Professional or Work life
Maintaining a happy and uplifting work environment is critical to one’s individual success as well as the success of the company. Rather than engaging in toxic workplace contests and filthy politics, we should strive for personal excellence by constantly improving ourselves.
We will work in an excellent work environment when we get to know our actual interests or passion. Before doing any work collect the information about of work through which you can do it better than someone else.
Whoever hand over work to you try to complete soon this help to achieve respect and promotions.
We tend to compare and compete with others at work rather than compare and compete with ourselves. Try to beat your records instead of others.
You must embark on a journey of self-discovery to discover your life’s mission. And this is possible when you work on yourself.
Spend with kindness and earn with integrity. This is possible when you realize the importance of work in life. Respect your work and complete it with dedication and interest.
Always remember if your words fail to prove yourself, it is the character that shines brightly.
My personal advice is to keep distance from those people who demotivate you, try to lead down yourself, don’t respect you, and they are with you just because of self benefits.
If your relatives, friends, cousins, and people around you are not good then you could not achieve anything easily. In each path, they try to stop you so it’s better to keep distance from them without telling them the reality.
Great Philosopher said that “keep distance from those people who do not want to see you at the top of success. “
It never implies that we ignore the relation problem totally. Rather, we must gently correct the other individual. Relationships are similar to mutual funds in that we must first invest (love, affection, and praise) before we can withdraw (correct or criticize them with sensitivity). We can only fix individuals if we invest in them.
FORGIVENESS is an essential component of maintaining positive interpersonal relationships. Also, Empathy is an important aspect of forgiveness. Try to forgive people if possible. As we know forgiveness is difficult. To internalize it, we must first grasp it thoroughly.
Always remember “Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that,” Martin Luther King Jr. declared. Hate cannot drive out hatred; only love can do so,” emphasizes the significance of forgiveness in one’s life.
When we include a spiritual element in our relationships, they become stronger. Offering and accepting presents, opening one’s thoughts and enquiring in confidence, and providing and receiving food that fosters love relationships are three various approaches to becoming excellent friends with someone.
“The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others.” A great way to find happiness and satisfaction while doing social growth.
Contributions to social life understand by the example of candles and ice cream which we mentioned above. Life is a path from selfishness as (Ice-cream) to selflessness as (Candle), leading to contentment and long-term happiness.
ICE-concept CREAM’s is to savor it before it melts.
The idea of CANDLE, on the other hand, is to “provide light to others before it melts.”
We’re all somewhere in the middle. Also always remember “Selflessness should not be mistaken with “compassionate tiredness,” or over-caring. An empty cup cannot fill the cups of others.”
Even the plane’s safety instructions specify that you should put on your own oxygen mask first before helping others in an emergency. Our circle of selflessness should begin with our family (our closest and most loved ones), but it should not end there. We should also assist others who are not in our close care and compassion.
In short words “Helping others as well without any selfishness.”
