Be Sunshine Happy :)

What makes some people simile and stay sunshine happy, almost all the time? These optimists refuse to get crushed by bad news and spread the sounds of laughter and hope. They are all around us, trying to give those who’re sulking, frowning and sad, a simple lesson in the pursuit of happyness.

Most people are happy if their wishlist is fulfilled. But that’s not real happiness. It’s a fluctuating happiness index which dips if they fall ill or experience heartbreak. Happy energy wouldn’t be dependent on outside factors, it has to come from within. There are people, who have everything they desire and are still unhappy. Choose your emotions and thoughts. Free yourself from past baggage, mistakes and regrets. Choose to be happy.

There’s something about being genuinely happy. Why should your happiness be dependent on tha global economy, your work environment or your spouse’s behaviour?

Moods sway from dark to happy for everyone. Everyone has the power to be totally happy, which is a cultivated art. Can you be really happy in tough times?

Optimism has nothing to do with the future, rather, it is a description of reality. The real definition of optimism was relevent in good and bad times, you just have to choose to be happy, despite whatever happens.

Live life to full, never pay attention to failures. Every minute whatever you do, you should enjoy by saying yes more than by saying no. Always have faith that’s the way to open doors. Once you decide you’ll be happy, that’s what you ‘ll create in your life.

For optimists all experiences are positive, as they bring new opportunity. Hence, happiness is a decision.

Don’t label situations good or bad. When unhappiness onfronts you, rather than running away, exercise the force of will to run through it. It’s not just in thought but in action too. If you have to experiment with new ideas, you’ll experience setbacks. you should not let it intimidate or overwhelm you. Have the will to be happy from inside.

The way to bring happiness is to work honestly and to share. Ther has to be a sense of detachment from external situations.

Work on happiness as a skill to be developed. Let happines be a learnt reaction. You’ll have to work at being happy. But it’ll be rewarding and bring you real joy.

Tell yourself every minute. “It’s in my power to be happy, no matter what!”

Criticism or Praise?

Is it criticism or praise that help us?

It is quite easy to get approval if we ask enough people, or we if we ask those who are likely to tell is what we want to hear.

The likelihood is that they will say nice things than be too bad so that we here only what we want to hear.So if you have produced a pleasantly acceptable piece of work, you will have proved to yourself that it’s good simply because others have said to. It is probably ok. But then it’s probably not great either.

If instead of seeking approval, you ask,Whats’ wrong with it? How can I make it better?, you are more likely to get a truthful,critical answer.You may even get an improvement on your idea.
And you are still in a position to reject the criticism if you think it is wrong.

DO NOT SEEK PRAISE. SEEK CRITICISM.

Opportunities

We are always waiting for the perfect brief from the perfect client. It almost never happens. You’re probably working on a job or the project now and saying,This is boring,let’s just deal with it and get it over with. We’ll make the next good one.

Don’t look for the next opportunity. The one you have is the opportunity.

There is never next time, whatever is on your desk right now, that’s the one. Make it best you possibly can. It may not be great, but at least you’ll have satisfaction of knowing you did the best you possibly could, and you may learn something from it.

And you are always free to do an alternative that does satisfy your creative standards.Good briefs don’t just come along.

Successful solutions are often made by people rebelling against bad briefs.

So create a win win situation for the work which you have in hand 🙂

Ideas are worth spreading

You will remember from school other students preventing you from seeing their answers by placing their arm around their exercise book or answer paper. It is the same at work, people are secretive with ideas. Don’t tell them that, they’ll take the credit for it.

The problem with hoarding is you end up living off your reserves. Eventually you’ll become stale. If you give away everything you have, you are left with nothing. This forces you to look, to be aware,to replenish.

Somehow the more you give away the more comes back to you.Do not covet ideas.Ideas are open knowledge, Don’t claim ownership.They’re not your ideas anyway,they’re someone else’s. They are floating by, you just have to put yourself in a frame of mind to pick them up.

Sharing is Caring 🙂

Achieve The Unachieveable

Firstly you need to aim beyond what you are capable of.You must develop a complete disregard for where your abilities end.

Try to do things that you’re incapable of.If you think you’re unable to work for the best company in its sphere, make that as your aim. If you think you’re incapable of running a company, make that your aim.If you think you’re unable to be on the cover of any magazine, make it your business to be there.

Make your vision of where you want to be a reality. Nothing is Impossible. Even the word Impossible says ” I M Possible “.

Enjoy achieving your Aim 🙂
