I’ve always been a proponent of patience. This article lists all the virtues of patience perfectly.
Here is an excerpt:
“We’re told from a very early age that patience is a virtue. However, very few of us are ever really shown or taught how to be patient. Patience is not something we have; it is something we consciously do. Patience is like any other hard-earned discipline: The more we practice it, the more patient we become. It is only through being patient that we can truly learn from the curveballs which get thrown in our path.”
For those who don’t know what ‘TED Talks’ are, there’s a short intro – They are a non-profit organisation devoted to spreading ideas, usually in the form of powerful talks in topics ranging from science to life to business.
Here are fantastic lists of TED Talks to watch and learn from this holiday season:
When we were children, every leaf, every touch of a gentle breeze, all new sights and sounds were incredibly exciting discoveries and we couldn’t wait to go out there and feel everything. What would happen, then, if you treated each day as if it were the first day of your life? You would no longer be jaded and tired, you would no longer be afraid of failing, you would no longer be afraid to try.
You can’t achieve success simply by desire. You need to be proactive and take the steps you need to take. To get something you’ve never had before, you must be willing to something you have never done before. It’s as simple as that.
As Christmas draws near, it is time for us to remember the reason for the season. Share the sparkle and joys of the season with those who need it most. Indeed, it is Christmas in the heart that puts Christmas in the air.
Close your eyes, thinking of what your big dreams and ambitions for your life. What if I told you that your dream can become a reality? If there’s anything you learn in life, it’s that anything is possible. There is one condition though, and as JK Rowling put it so eloquently, “Anything’s possible if you’ve got enough nerve!”
My daily schedule is not written in stone. It gets jumbled up from time to time, especially when I’m entertaining guests or travelling or attending big corporate meetings or events. However, I don’t make any of these an excuse to break my healthy eating habits and my fitness and wellness routine. It’s a must that you stick with the activities that give you sound mind, body, and spirit, no matter what variables are thrown into your days.
There shouldn’t be any conflict between consistency and flexibility; they should complement each other. Apply this principle to how you spend every day and you’ll soon feel the difference of living a full, healthy and well-balanced life. Now, that’s what we call Absolute Living!
Don’t let your fear of failure stop you from doing the things you want to do. Mistakes are not as bad as you think they are. They are the best stepping stone to learning, growth, and success. Remember that mistakes are great learning opportunities – you are forced to get out of your comfort zone, and to learn how to do things better.
Your future is truly in your hands. We are living a life today that has been moulded by our past actions, events and decisions. So it goes without question that to truly enjoy your future, you need to sow the right seeds today.
