There is a saying ‘Life is not by chance but by choice’. If you are not a happy person, that is a choice you are making, which in return defines the state you are in. You have full control over your life and the decisions that you make. There are many factors which people measure happiness. Some people think money is happiness. There are also proven facts that the money rich people no doubt are absolutely miserable with what they do on a daily basis to make their money.
Take a moment to look at the people around you, who have everything there is that you long for or dream to have. Whether it is wealth, possessions, status, career and so forth – STOP! These things don’t create happiness. Remember, happiness is a choice.
The wealthy and high status people of today continue to live miserable lives. Lonely, alcoholic, violence, broken marriages, and the list goes on. Happiness comes from within. These people may be working jobs they absolutely hate but just have a knack for making money. You might even want to call it ‘by chance’.
Vision relates to the faculty or state of being able to see. Purpose on the other hand, transmits the reason for which something is done or created or for which something exists.
Life is good. Unique in so many awesome ways, we are where we are today, because of what makes us who we are. How does that work? Knowledge and skills are essential elements of the ‘what makes us, who we are’ concept.
We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit. –Aristotle-
Life can be seen through ones experiences, beliefs and perceptions. We are what we repeatedly do, think and talk about. Consciousness, perception, thinking, learning, reasoning and judgement become habitual, only when we unleash the power of the mind to function in alliance with our vision and purpose.
Everything exists as result of the conditions and forces that existed before it. Once you are clear about your purpose, it is much easier to fulfill it and live a more meaningful life. Define your vision, goals and areas of responsibility so that your plans and daily actions are kept aligned with your dominant patterns of thinking.
